Shaman King Funbari no Uta (シャーマンキング ふんばりの詩 Shaman King The Song/Poem of Funbari) is a series of short stories written by Hiroyuki Takei relating to his manga series Shaman King and a furyoku-inducing battle anthem-turned-jingle-turned-Japanese ballad created by the Shaman King character, Johann George Faust VIII.

The series is a sequel to Shaman King and features Asakura Hana, the son of Yoh and Anna, and Umemiya Ryunosuke as they travel around to find the Five Elemental Warriors. The five short chapters were compiled and included in volume 32, the final tankouban volume of Shaman King. Upon the release of the Shaman King Kang Zeng Bang edition, Funbari no Uta is also concluded in the final chapter of the manga series.[1] Snake's Legs, a bonus track story included in the Mentalite fanbook, features the events right after the conclusion of the series.


Funbari no Uta' is set seven years (in 2007) after the Shaman Tournament, featuring the six year old Asakura Hana. He and Ryu set out to find Tao Ren, Horohoro, Chocolove McDonell, and Lyserg Diethel in time for the grand opening of the Funbari Onsen, which is run by Hana's foster mother Tamamura Tamao. The story ends with a montage of panels showing all the aforementioned characters preparing to travel to Funbari no Uta, ending with a spread of Anna and Yoh.
