Relive Fairy Tail Creator's Live-Sketch Panel at NYCC
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Fairy Tail fans are still waiting to hear what Hiro Mashima has in store for them next. The popular manga creator wrapped up his hit series last year and fans around the world thanked him for his work. Currently, he's heading to France for the 45th annual Angoulême International Comics Festival where a commemorative Fairy Tail exhibit is underway.
Suffice to say, Mashima has been busy. He was a guest at last year's New York Comic Con The Harvey Awards. During NYCC, Mashima hosted panels and live drawing sessions. If you weren't able to make it to the convention, publisher Kodansha USA is streaming a profile of Mashima's visit to the events and his live drawing session.
Mashima's Fairy Tail manga series follows the adventures of world's most notorious mage guild, Fairy Tail. The manga launched in 2006, and ended on July 26.
The manga has inspired two television anime, two anime films, several original video anime projects, and spinoff manga. Kodansha Comics publishes the original manga and a number of its spinoffs in North America.
The television anime series is getting a final season this year.
Mashima also created the manga Rave Master, which ran for 35 volumes and inspired a 51-episode anime adaption of the same name.
