Hoshin Engi (Japanese封神演義HepburnHōshin Engi), also known as Soul Hunter, is a Japanese manga series by Ryu FujisakiHoshin Engi is inspired by the Chinese literary classic Investiture of the Gods, a shenmo novel. The story involves the Chinese mythology and history of China, in particular the last members of the In (Yin Dynasty aka Shang Dynasty) and the plot to overthrow them.

The manga series was serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine from 1996–2000 and compiled in 23 tankōbon volumes by Shueisha. The manga has been re-released and re-compiled into fewer larger volumes with new cover art, illustrations and afterwords. The 18 kanzenban volumes were released periodically between July 2005 and April 2006 in Japan only.

The story has been adapted into a 26-episodes anime series titled Senkaiden Hōshin Engi, broadcast on TV Tokyo from July to December 1999. A new 23-episode anime television series adaptation titled Hakyū Hōshin Engi and featuring a new cast aired from January to June 2018. Fujisaki also wrote a short manga series that was serialized in Weekly Young Jump from April to June 2018.

In North America, Viz Media acquired the rights to the manga for English language release. The first anime series was first licensed by ADV Films and released as Soul Hunter in 2001. It was later acquired by Discotek Media in 2016.
