Fairy Tail Manga May Still Have Spin-offs
Fairy Tail fans may have felt a little disappointed to hear that Hiro Mashima’s long-running manga will be ending in two volumes.
However, the mangaka is quick to pick fans up back from their slumps. According to Anime News Network, Mashima has confirmed that the Fairy Tail franchise may continue in spin-offs. As translated, his tweet says:
“Even though the original manga is ending, I don’t think Fairy Tail is done just yet. I have a lot of plans, so please look forward to them.”
Mashima didn’t give any other details of his plans for a spin-off. And it’s also interesting how this spin-off will happen. That’s because Mashima has previously confirmed that he will be tackling a new project with new characters.
Fairy Tail has already tapped the 60 million copies printed worldwide. Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry has just aired this month in Japan, opening at the #10 spot in the Japanese box office. An international release has yet to be announced.
Mashima’s manga has been following Natsu and the Fairy Tail guilders in their adventures in the mage guild. The manga first began in 2006 and its anime has been enjoying a good run both in Japan and abroad.
