Fairy Tail will be getting another spin-off, named “Fairy Tail Zero” which largely concentrates on the story of how Fairy Tail as a guild began. We start with Mavis and her friends on Tenrou Island where it all begins. The anime plans to start during the winter of 2016 where the prequel of Fairy Tail will be told.
Along with the anime, Hiro Mashima himself posted about it as seen in the tweet below:
Mavis: Mamiko Noto
Yury Dreyar: Katsuyuki Konishi
Precht Gaebolg: Yoshihisa Kawahara
Warrod Sequen: Hiroshi Shirokuma
Zeref: Akira Ishida
Furthermore, Kodansha Comics describes the story of Fairy Tail Zero as:
This is it: The Fairy Tail prequel fans have been waiting for! Series creator Hiro Mashima himself draws an all-new series that depicts the founding of the Fairy Tail guild.
Many years ago, Mavis Vermilion was a servant on Sirius Island, mistreated by a guild master and his daughter, Zera. But Mavis stayed positive, because her mother once told her that fairies never visit people who cry about their problems. When the guild came under attack, Mavis pulled Zera from the wreckage into the forest. Seven years went by, and the powerful wizards Warrod Sequen, Precht, and Yuri Dreyer arrived on the island, seeking a powerful jade gemstone. This journey would change the course of magical history…
Kodansha mentions that the series will come Summer 2016, but either way, the fact that it’s coming is a pretty good sign. What are your thoughts on this? Go ahead and comment down below telling us all how you think this new series will be.
