Now, Let’s take a look at the plot of the anime:-
Shamans are extraordinary individuals with the ability to communicate with ghosts, spirits, and gods, which are invisible to ordinary people. The Shaman Fight—a prestigious tournament pitting shamans from all over the world against each other—is held every five hundred years, where the winner is crowned Shaman King. This title allows the current incumbent to call upon the Great Spirit and shape the world as they see fit.
Finding himself late for class one night, Manta Oyamada, an ordinary middle school student, decides to take a shortcut through the local cemetery. Noticing him, the alone boy sitting on a gravestone invites Manta to stargaze with “them.” Realizing that “them” refers to the boy and his ghostly friends, Manta flees the terror. Later, the boy introduces himself as You Asakura, a Shaman-in-training, and demonstrates his powers by teaming up with the ghost of six-hundred-year-old samurai Amidamaru to save Manta from a group of thugs. You befriend Manta due to his ability to see spirits, and with the help of Amidamaru, they set out to accomplish You’s goal of becoming the next Shaman King.

Will The Anime Come to Crunchyroll, Funimation?
Most likely no. It is very rare for a Netflix licsensed anime to appear on any other streaming service.
About Shaman King
Shaman King is an upcoming anime based Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiroyuki Takei. The manga was originally serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shounen Jump magazine from June 1998 and August 2004 and was compiled into 32 volumes.
It received an anime adaptation by Studio Xebec which ran for 64 episodes from July 2001 to September 2002. A reboot TV anime by Studio Bridge which will adapt the whole manga premiered in April 2021. The series has inspired multiple spin-offs including language release of the Shaman King’s spin-offs Shaman King: Zero, Shaman King: Flowers, Shaman King: Super Star and Shaman King: Red Crimson.
In the world of Shaman King, people with the ability to communicate and fight with spirits are collectively known as Shamans. The series is centered around Asakura Yoh, a laid-back, easygoing character who is heir to the powerful shamanic Asakura Family, as he enters the Shaman Tournament, a semi-millennial event that draws shamans from around the world to compete for the chance to become the Shaman King and the wielder of the omnipotent Great Spirit. In the process, Yoh befriends and makes rivals of other characters, and gradually learns of the true nature of the Shaman Tournament, and his connection to Asakura Hao, the favorite to win.
