  • Fairy Tail mangaka Hiro Mashima will add a chapter to the story. Although the official manga ended in 2017, Mashima has decided to publish a one-shot on July 3, 2024.
  • Since 2018, there has been a sequel to Fairy Tail, Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest. The sequel was previously only available as a manga. But this summer, the anime will finally follow. The TV launch for Japan is July 7. In the manga, Mashima is only responsible for the story; Atsuo Ueda is responsible for the drawings.
  • However, there is some sad news: The manga for Edens Zero, which is not based on a fantasy but on a sci-fi setting, ends on June 26th. Mashima himself is responsible for the manga.

Unfortunately, it is not known how many pages the one-shot will have and what fans can expect from the content. But we do know exactly what happens next in Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest. There is a manga template that the anime will most likely follow.

The eponymous 100-Year Quest is a mission that has been unfinished for over a century. In this mission, the five dragon gods that could destroy the world must be sealed. Natsu and his team accept the challenge and try to finally complete the quest after over 100 years.

Why are Fairy Tail and One Piece so similar? Many fans compare One Piece to Fairy Tail, which is why there is a lot of overlap between the fan communities. Both are shonen manga that have a similar premise.

In both manga, the main character goes on a long journey, the destination of which is somewhere in an unknown country. He gathers numerous friends around him who have very different character traits.

In One Piece, it is pirate crews who rule the world. In Fairy Tail, magicians play a major role. Some of the devil powers are comparable to magicians’ abilities. The drawing style and humor are also similar in both stories.

There is a persistent rumor in the community that Mashima was the assistant of One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda and that is where the similarities come from. However, the rumor is not true. Otherwise, Mashima might have been able to enjoy Oda’s crazy house: “I spent my money on ridiculous things”: The mangaka of One Piece gives a house tour
