Original story (published on August 11, 2021) follows:

Shaman King is a popular manga series which has been adapted into Anime for the second time this year. The Anime series is available on Netflix with thirteen episodes for the time being.

However, Netflix users have been facing a problem with Episode 13 of the English dubbed version of Shaman King lately.


As per several reports, Shaman King Episode 13 is playing audio in Japanese instead of English even with the right selection.

The issue appears to be widespread and is inconveniencing those who wish to watch the episode in English.

Also, some reports even outline that the German dubbed version of Shaman King Episode 13 works without any issue on Netflix.

Did episode 13 of Shaman King not get dubbed or something? It’s only playing in Japanese

@NetflixSupprt Just a heads up, the English audio on Episode 13 of Netflix’s Shaman King anime is producing Japanese audio instead


This further indicates that the issue might be specifically related to the English dubbed version of the episode.

However, affected users may not have to contend with this problem for long as it has been acknowledged by Netflix support.

It seems the streaming giant is aware of this issue and are already working to resolve it as soon as possible.


Thus, it is possible that the English dubbed version of Shaman King Episode 13 might get fixed in the near future on the platform.

This is, however, still based on speculation as Netflix customer support has not provided any ETA for a fix.

So, it is unclear how long it will take to properly isolate the aforementioned problem with Shaman King.


Hopefully, Netflix fixes this issue soon so that users can enjoy Shaman King Episode 13 without any hassle.

That said, we will report back with more details as and when we get new information so stay tuned.
