On July 26, fans said goodbye to the popular manga series “Fairy Tail” by manga artist Hiro Mashima.
Eleven years ago, readers embarked on a journey with Dragon Slayer Natsu Dragneel and Celestial Mage Lucy Heartfilia as they fought their way through countless other mages and demons — and it wouldn’t be a fantasy series without a dragon or two! With their friends Gray Fullbuster, Erza Scarlet and Happy, the group has shared unforgettable experiences, amazing teamwork and friendship, which fans have grown to love.
Take a look at some of your favorite mages from the very beginning!
“Fairy Tail” taught many just how important the power of friendship and family really is. They gave the saying “You mess with one of us, you mess with all of us” a whole new meaning. They also proved that anyone can be redeemed if given the opportunity. Its ending captures all of these aspects and remains true to what “Fairy Tail” was all about.
Hiro Mashima has stated that while the main story is officially over fans can expect to see their favorite mages in future projects. Please continue to support Hiro Mashima as he embarks on a new journey. Those currently waiting for the anime to return from its hiatus can anticipate its comeback in September. Also, if you have yet to watch the latest movie in the series, “Dragon Cry,” you’re in luck! Selected theaters in the US will be showing the movie on Aug. 14, 16 and 19!
