@ releses date for Viz ----
Yea i know but i am hoping with there being a true ending and with it going direct to volume (VIZ) that they mite bump it up to a volume a month so we can get caught up but i am not holding my breath XD
k where do I start? k so first I'm probably going to post links that you already know but just see this as a reminder.
If you want to read every single mankin chapter from chapter 1 to chapter 258 go to http://mankin-trad.net/main.php, on the left you will see chapters 183 to 257 + special, so you'll probably think "where r the once before chapter 183?" well they'r here: http://www.mangarun.com/shaman_king/ .
now about volume 32 and "volume 33"(you'll probably know this already but as I said before,see this as a reminder:
First of all the end of the anime is completly different from the manga because they didn't want to wait on the manga. So they thought of an other ending by themselfs.
The anime of Shaman King starts off with the same sequence of events as the manga for roughly half of the series and then gradually deviates into its own plot. Horohoro is introduced prematurely (Yoh meets him before they fight in the preliminary rounds) and Hao's first appearance is much later (In the manga, he can be seen hidden among other contestants). As is the usual case for anime based off manga, the anime series is much more toned down. Many of the characters that die in the manga are kept alive in the anime. The anime shows these characters recovering from their injuries (or not sustaining any at all) and eventually agreeing with Yoh and his friends ideologically. The anime does show Yoh and Hao's final battle and implies that all of the friends that Yoh has made on his journey (most of these are the characters that have died in the manga) donated their spiritual energy to help him win. However, it is still unclear whether Hao was defeated once and for all or where his soul has gone.(source)
the end of the manga goes as follows:
Volume 32 "ends" with Yoh going to sleep to prepare for the final battle with Hao; the final page is viewed as Manta's dream, which features Hao as a princess with Yoh and his friends on their way to rescue "her". The reason for that is because Anna was speaking to Manta as if Hao was the person in need of rescue. The page contains the words "Owari" ("The End") and next to that, in front of Horohoro's sword, is a mandarin orange, also called "mikan" which is the Japanese word for "incomplete".
but this isn't really the end because there is a chapter 285,
Chapter 284 was the last chapter in Weekly Shonen Jump.
Chapter 285 is a chapter that you can only read in Volume 32.
now about volume 33:

All notes and comments are in the [ ].
Q. Will there be a SK sequel? [Questionaire didn't say anime or manga, but we'll assume manga]
A. "If possible" or 'Soon as possible''
Q. Why was the Shaman King anime ending different? [Probably meaning the 2nd season of the anime, which was changed from the manga]
A. Well, the manga was still running so it was impossible to follow the book, so they used a different ending
Q. [The person was unable to state his/her question]
(another person says): Can you guys shut up!? I have an intelligent question here.'' [Because the last question was really easy]
New Q. Is there a movie or short subject [OVA/OAV/Special] of Shaman King? [Assuming that there will be a new one, not something that has already been done and hasn't been dubbed by 4Kids]
A. Probably "No." but video got cut off.
[End of video clip]
Also, If somebody could download the video and upload me a .flv or .avi file of the video, that would be very helpful (since I can sub the video).
this is from after the Q&A:
Q1 - Something about volume 32 & the end of SK..
Answer : Yes, there will be a sequel, a true ending, I hope to do that for the end of the year or during 2008.
Q2 - Is the end a continuation and end of SK or rather a new story?
Answer : Just wait for it to be released and read it.
Takei said also that he have some "secret plan." This could mean that he has a new manga (series or oneshot) planned.
He didn't want to say anything about the plot or anything (of SK volume 33) except :
"This will be like AstroBoy.. kind of.."
and to celebrate the good news:

ow and why he'll probably be announce it officialy in november:
first not in september because in september he'll probably wont be far enof.
second not in october because then weekly SJ is going to change to Jump SQ(square).
So probably end november because then he'll be far enof or in dec because he said then it would be ready.
