Fairy Tail Creator to Start New Manga Series
Hiro Mashima of, most recently anyway, Fairy Tail fame confirmed on Sunday that he will be starting a new manga in a magazine other than Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine (where Fairy Tail is published). He also went on to assure Fairy Tail fans that the series is not over, and that he will be writing both series’ simultaneously.
This way of coming up with new manga ideas is not unusual for Mashima, as he has stated that he drew the prototype for Fairy Tail while writing Rave Master. Fairy Tail inspired an anime that has since concluded (along with a “to be continued” title card), but Weekly Shonen Magazine has announced the show will be returning in April.
