It’s the end of an era so get your tissues ready.
Earlier today, it was revealed that the final series in the Fairy Tail anime franchise will air this October. The good news is that most of the primary cast and crew will be returning for the final season, so that’s some consolation I suppose.
Shinji Ishihira is directing and animation will be produced jointly by A-1 Pictures and Bridge. Meanwhile, Masashi Sogo will be handling series composition. Additionally, those who watch the series in Japanese won’t have to worry, as the primary cast will also be returning to reprise their roles.
The anime series is based off the manga series of the same name from author Hiro Mashima. Launched in 2006 Fairy Tail ended in 2017. Kodansha currently has the English rights to the series and they describe it as:
Cute girl wizard Lucy wants to join the Fairy Tail, a club for the most powerful wizards. But instead her ambitions land her in the clutches of a gang of unsavory pirates led by a devious magician. Her only hope is Natsu, a strange boy she happens to meet on her travels. Natsu’s not your typical hero—he gets motion sickness, eats like a pig, and his best friend is a talking cat. With friends like this, is Lucy better off with her enemies?
This is obviously news that we all saw coming when the manga series ended but still, for fans Fairy Tail, news of the last season is understandably bittersweet.
