Hoshin Engi 'Soul Hunter'  Manga Gets  Remake Anime Series.

Shueisha's Young Jump magazine 36th and 37th issue has revealed that Ryu Fujisaki's Hoshin Engi (Soul Hunter) will get a brand new anime series adaptation of the manga. The anime series will not be a sequel to the 1999's Senkai-den Hōshin Engi anime series, but instead a remake and will feature different voice cast actors.

Ryu Fujisaki launched Hoshin Engi (Soul Hunter) in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1996-2000. The manga itself was inspired by the Chinese literary classic Fengshen Yanyi, a shenmo novel.

The story is set in legendary China. A beautiful female fox spirit named Dakki is controlling the emperor Chu-o and the ruling In dynasty, and is using her power over him to do evil in the nation. An immortal-in-training named Taikobo is chosen by the great immortal sages for the Houshin Project — to seal away or destroy the evil demons that infest the world. In the course of his adventures, Taikobo gathers other powerful companions and sets out to seal away the demons and eventually destroy the fox-spirit Dakki.

There are significant plot differences between the novel, the manga series and the anime. We will update when more details are available.
