Final Fairy Tail Episode Ends With 'To Be Continued' Message

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Creator Hiro Mashima stated earlier this month that anime was 'not over yet'

The "final" episode of the television anime adaptation of Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail manga ended with the words "To Be Continued" when the episode aired on Saturday in Japan. Kodansha's TV Magazine revealed earlier this month that the series would be ending its television broadcast run on March 30. At that time, Mashima had posted a statement to his fans on Twitter saying "Until the time comes, I cannot say something I've always wanted to say, even on Twitter. Please be patient and wait until the time comes for me to announce some good news."

Mashima then added a few days later: "it's actually not over yet. I can't say more than this, but I hope you watch the rerun starting in April and wait for the day I can announce some good news." He added in English, "Anime is not the end. Don't stop believing."

Fairy Tail will begin its weekly Thursday rerun on April 4 at 5:30 p.m. under the title Fairy Tail Best!
