Fairy Tail creator announces the return of the Fairy Tail anime!

Hiro Mashima, creator of the Fairy Tail manga, took to Twitter earlier today to announce that the final season of the Fairy Tail anime will premiere in 2018! HOORAY!

The first anime series premiered in 2009, and we have since had 8 seasons (including the prequel series, Fairy Tail Zero), 9 OVA episodes and 2 movies.

Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry was the latest movie, and it opened in Japan in May. The movie was originally rumoured to be the last installment for the anime, until the final chapters for the manga were announced just after its opening.

We can’t wait to see what the final chapters and series will bring, even if it means saying goodbye to the Fairy Tail gang. Bring on the new exciting adventures!
