The main cast of Hiroyuki Takei's SHAMAN KING are starring in a collaboration video to promote the film Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which premieres in Japanese theaters on Feb. 4, 2022.

In the collaboration video, Manta Oyamada explains to Yoh Asakura that ghostbusters are professionals who hunt down and exterminate spirits. Anna Kyoyama and Amidamaru also join in on the discussion.

While the cast of SHAMAN KING are impressed that another universe is also interacting with spirits, they do think they're tougher. At least, Anna thinks so.
