Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine is confirming that the television anime version of Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail fantasy adventure manga will continue into its third year this September. The third year will begin with the "Tenrōjima" story arc.
The manga and anime follow the adventures of world's most notorious mage guild, Fairy Tail. A-1 Pictures and Satelight launched the anime in October of 2009. Del Rey published the 12th volume of the original manga in North America last year, and Kodansha resumed publishing the manga with the 13th volume this year. Crunchyroll simulcasts the anime into several countries within an hour of each episode's Japanese broadcast.
Mashima also created the Monster Hunter Orage manga and the Rave manga, which Tokyopop published in North America under the name Rave Master. Like Fairy Tail, Rave was made into a television anime series.
