The prologue manga by original Fairy Tail mangaka Hiro Mashima entitled Hajimari no Asa will also be adapted into an anime. This will not be a TV series, however. It will be an added OVA to the DVD of the newest installment in the Fairy Tail movie franchise – Houou no Miko (The Priestess of the Phoenix).
The anime adaptation will be produced and created by the same team that worked on the current movie. It will be added to the DVD of the movie which will be, also, an addition to one of the future (2013) manga volumes. The story of Hajimari no Asa (First morning) came as a bonus to advanced tickets for the screenings of the film. The chapter is just 30 pages long.
