Kodansha takes over publication of Shaman King.

Yeah, this isn't too surprising considering that Hiroyuki Takei severed all ties with Shueisha earlier this year.  As for the special announcement that Kodansha is planning, it's likely an announcement of a new print of the Shaman King manga under the Kodansha label, or the sequel to Shaman King Flowers that Takei has been hinting at for a while.  A new anime would be cool, but I doubt one would happen so soon after the series changing hands.  Coincidentally, Viz is no longer selling Shaman King or Karakuri Doji Ultimo digitally, so it's very likely that their license to both series are expiring in the near future.

I hope Kodansha USA re-releases the Shaman King manga over here so that we can finally receive the revised and conclusive ending provided in the Kanzenban release, since Viz only ever released the original tankobons. I actually think that a new anime is very possible considering 2018 will be its 20th anniversary, and I'm sure Kodansha would want to capitalize on that.
