Fairy Tail is currently in the wake of its final season as the Fairy Tail guild is going up against some of their toughest opponents in the series yet. But this also means that the series will soon come to an end, and fans will be wondering what characters like Natsu will be doing after it's all said and done. But what really is there left to do once Natsu and the others take on all the big baddies left? According to one Fairy Tail star, it's time for Natsu to use his skills in a new way.
Speaking with ComicBook.com, Todd Haberkorn, who provides the voice for Natsu Dragneel in the English dub of Fairy Tail, pitched a more relaxed journey for Natsu after the series is over where he'll use his fire magic to take on the culinary world.
When asked which character he'd like to see branch off into their own spin-off series, Haberkorn pitched the idea of following a Natsu from a parallel universe. The results were surprisingly hilarious as his take involved an older Natsu using his skills for cooking instead of fighting, "Natsu has honed his fire abilities in his 30s and has opened up a successful hibachi restaurant chain where he does special fire shows in front of the grill for celebrities and dignitaries that come to Fiore."
But Natsu wouldn't be the only character in this spin-off as Haberkorn also had ideas for roles for Gray Fullbuster and Happy, "Gray comes to the party afterwards to tidy up. Happy is the bouncer."
Fans would definitely be in support of any spin-off series as Haberkorn mentioned how well the series has been received in its final season, “Fairy Tail has always had a world wide appeal. I’ve been all over the world and no matter the language spoken - everyone was fluent in their affection for that show. I’m hoping we do another 300 episodes,...People are still checking it out and still getting the guild mark tattoo...as well, as my name tattooed on themselves - which is fiery."2comments
