Fairy Tail Manga Gets New Christmas Original Anime DVD
posted on by Egan Loo
Retailers are listing Hiro Mashima's 58th Fairy Tail manga volume in a limited-edition bundle with a new original anime DVD on November 17. The "Yōsei-tachi no Christams" (Fairy Christmas) anime will follow the companions when they gather at Lucy's home and hold a Christmas party.
The manga follows the adventures of world's most notorious mage guild, Fairy Tail. It already inspired two television anime, several previous original video anime projects, and spinoff manga. The franchise's first anime film, Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess, opened in Japan on August 18, 2012, and Mashima announced a second film last May.
Del Rey published the first 12 volumes of the original manga in North America, and Kodansha resumed publishing the manga in English with the 13th volume in 2011. Crunchyroll streams the ongoing television anime into several countries as it airs in Japan, and Funimation has been releasing DVD/Blu-ray sets.
