He should REALLY take his time and plot out a bulk of the series’ trajectory. Just a lil suggestion based on his track record.

But he’s still a pretty creative guy so I’m optimistic.

From a financial perspective, the industry would rather have another ~300 episode shonen manga adaptation than another ~50 episode shonen manga adaptation, so "mistakes" aside, I'm willing to bet that Mashima, his publishers, and whoever gets to adapt his work into anime are all hoping this new series will be more like Fairy Tail than Rave Master.

A lot of us rather not have media that's an easy target for criticism.

I wish you best of luck Mashima.

The 51 episodes on Rave Master was a Travesty.. It started midway and the begginging was explored in flashbacks. It cut halfway (i have no idea why).

What pains me the most is that Rave could get a remake anime with the OG voice actors.. they were in the Fairy Tail X Rave Ova..

Come on.. this masterpiece deserves a full animation!

On another note i enjoyed both Hiro's Work (and his smaller one). I hope the best and i hope the adaption of the final arcs of F.T wont be badly animated

P.S Happy new year to all of you!

All I ask is that his next manga is the kind of story HE wants to tell. No being dictated by the fans.

A little less Fairy Tail and a little more Rave Master is all I'm saying.

Yeah, but work extra hard on the story this time Mashima Wink

I really wish that he gets serious with the new series, i actually don't think that he will not get away with another FT where he doesn't give a shit about writing a decent and consistent story and only cares about boobs and friendship power at the 100000%

This has nothing to do with financial perspectives, no one is saying to Mashima not publish another battle shounen with 500+ chapters, he can totally do, but please, write something that at least doesn't insult your inteligence during every chapter.

I just hope this one has a good plot and less recycled materials from his previous series. I still do think he should take his art to the other industry. i would definitely support it

How about @least a one-shot FT follow-up to ch. 545 where Natsu and Lucy confess, kiss, and get married?

I'm looking forward to more Mashima. Though he did lay it thick with the "power of friendship", I enjoyed the fanservice. He kept it fun and entertaining than going To-Love-Ru (event though some of us was hoping it would go in that direction). Razz

But I hope his next manga is just as successful, as he is very open with his community and to the to those who work on the anime (staff, seiyuu, etc). So best of luck to him!

The industry is actually increasingly moving away from overbloated shounen series. At least for manga.
We're in a new media age now, and every series has to compete not just with other manga, but with every other medium. An overlong series becomes a tall barrier for new readers, and you have to be critically popular, like One Piece, to justify a policy of forcing a manga to extend into infinity just for the sake of extending.
Shounen Jump has especially showed that it has realized it is in the new age, axing tons of long-running series.

The seasonal format is now also king on the anime side of things, making year-round weekly adaptations an archaic relic of the past, as can especially be seen with the Black Clover adaptation which showed that Pierrot has learned nothing.
