Yuji Ueda as Holo Holo’s comments
The connection that goes around, our journey never ends even if we die. No matter who you cut out, the story of love and affection is as infinite as Egui if you can find such a unique and huge thing.
Yuji ended their comments by saying that Including sub-episodes, spin-offs, and sequels, you have no choice but to take a peek into the abyss. They added that whether it will be a reunion or a new encounter, they will take an inexperienced path. Eventually, the ramie leaves will be filled with the sun so that the time of flower smiles will come.
Megumi Nakajima as Kororo’s comments
What is strength? They asked. What does it mean to really think for someone? They think that it is a work that conveys timelessly with humor and comfortable yuru. They are always encouraged by Ha-Kun’s words somehow.
The manga debuted in the Weekly Shonen Jum magazine back in 1998, and the 2001 Shaman King abruptly ended in 2004.
