If you thought Fairy Tail was over, then you better think again. The series might have wrapped last year thanks to its creator Hiro Mashima, but the artist has brought the magical title back.
Yes, Fairy Tail’s much-wanted sequel is here, and fans are freaking out over the debut.
For those out of the loops, Fairy Tail is making a return this week, and it will bring lots of familiar faces with it. Thanks to Mashima, Fairy Tail: 100 Year Quest will begin its publication in Weekly Shonen Magazine under Kodansha Comics. The sequel picks up right where Fairy Tail’s original series ended, and readers are eager to see where things go.
今週号の感想ありがとう！EZとFTの両立は滅多に弱音をはかない僕が、担当に弱音(無理かも)をはく程度には忙しいです。でもやります！EZもFTもかなり先まで構想があるので頑張ります！— 真島ヒロ (@hiro_mashima) July 25, 2018
The sequel made its debut in Japan earlier today as Weekly Shonen Magazine shared its 34th issue on July 15 abroad. So far, there is no word on when the sequel will be translated for an official U.S. release, but details about the sequel have their way online.
According to reports, the first chapter of Fairy Tail: 100 Year Quest begins with a big initiation. It seems a trio of mages were scouted to join Natsu’s guild, but Laxus winds up scaring two of them away. As for the third, the girl named Touka sticks with the group because she has a massive crush on Natsu.
Of course, the Dragon Slayer is far from his guild at the moment. He has brought his usual comrades out to complete a 100 Year Quest, a mission which no guild or mage has ever completed before. The gang must head to the world’s first guild to accept the big undertaking, but things take a turn when they discover a huge dragon awaiting them at the ancient guild.
For those unfamiliar with Hiro Mashima's work Fairy Tail, the series was originally created by Hiro Mashima. It is set in a fantasy world full of magic, and Natsu Dragneel is a fire breathing wizard with the powers of a dragon, and is in search of his missing foster father, the dragon Igneel. As he and his wizarding guild Fairy Tail get into adventures, Natsu always tries to find a way to succeed. The series ran in Weekly Shonen Jump from August 2006 to July 2017 and has spawned 60 million copies. It was later adapted into an anime by A-1 Pictures, Dentsu Inc., and Satelight in 2009 and ended its first run in 2013. A second series ran from 2014 to 2016, and a third series is planned for a Fall release.
