The official website for the upcoming reboot TV anime based on Hiroyuki Takei’s Shaman King manga announced that Takehito Koyasu will reprise his role as Faust VIII. He is one of the returning cast members from the 2001-2002 TV anime, alongside Megumi Hayashibara as Anna Kyoyama and Inuko Inuyama as Manta Oyamada.
Faust VIII is a necromancer from Germany who joins the Shaman Fight to revive his beloved wife, Eliza. Koyasu says on the anime’s official website that the charm of the Shaman King series is “The worldview, the story, the characters, and everyone’s love,” then expresses his enthusiasm for playing the role of FaustVIII again – “I’m happy to love Eliza again even after my rebirth. I will do my best on playing Faust. I would appreciate your support.”
