The official Twitter of Japanese illustrator Atsuo Ueda has revealed on Saturday an illustration announcing the upcoming TV anime series adaptation of Fairy Tail's sequel 'Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest'. Ueda served as the illustrator for the original manga series.
The adaptation's format will be in the form of a television (TV) anime series as revealed during the Hiro Mashima Fan Meeting live stream streamed the same day.
No other details were revealed as of writing.
The series is based on the original Japanese manga series "Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest" written and storyboarded by Hiro Mashima, and illustrated by Atsuo Ueda. It is a sequel to Mashima's Fairy Tail series, focusing on Natsu Dragneel and his team from the titular wizard guild as they aim to complete an unfinished, century-old mission.
The manga was launched in Kodansha's Magazine Pocket manga app in July 2018, and is licensed by Kodansha USA for an English release in North America. As of July 2021, nine tankōbon volumes have been released in Japan.
Japanese publisher KODANSHA, describes the series as:
Natsu, Lucy, Happy, Erza, and the whole Fairy Tail Guild are back in action! And they’ve decided to tackle the “100 Years Quest”—a job no one’s dared take on since the founding of the guild more than a century ago. A mysterious town, a baffling spirit, a ghastly new enemy … and a brand new continent to explore. When you’re with real friends, the adventures never stop!
