The final Fairy Tail anime season will debut on October 7, signaling an end of a shounen era.
Studios A-1 Pictures and Bridge are once again collaborating on the animation, with many of the previous staff returning. This includes director Shinji Ishihira, screenwriter Masashi Sogo, and character designers Shinji Takeuchi and Toshihiko Sano. The anime’s previous voice cast will also be reprising their roles.
Hiro Mashima launched Fairy Tail in 2006 and ended the manga last July. The series follows Lucy Heartfilia, Natsu Dragneel, and the rest of the Fairy Tail guild embarking on various adventures. Its focus on friendship and familial bonds have met a mixed reception with the International crowd, but Fairy Tail is among Japan’s best-sellers.
