The TV broadcaster of the Fairy Tail anime adaptation of Hiro Mashima’s original shounen fantasy manga has announced officially that the show will be ending on March 30, 2013. Good news, according to Mashima-sensei himself, will follow, but he is not in his right to announce anything himself. The show has been running on Japanese TV channel TV Tokyo since October 2009.
The initial surprise came when last week Kodansha’s TV Magazine came up with the information that the fantays anime is reaching an end. Shueisha’s Jump Square announced later that the Driland saga will begin in the exact same time when the Fairy Tail anime is. (First episode airing at 10:30 a.m. on April 6, 2013).
The show is currently in the Grand Magic Games Arc and it will not have the time to end before March 30, unless the producers and screenwriters think of the so-called and very dreaded “alternate ending”.
Fear not, though for Hiro Mashima has entered the scene and in the middle of all the panic, he said on his twitter board that:
“I can’t say what I’ve always wanted to say right now, but endure until the right day comes and you will have some great news coming your way!”
