Indonesian publisher Elex Media Komputindo announced on Sunday that it has licensed the Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail Zero prequel manga, as well as Tatsuhiko Ida and Asashi Mizutani's Yoimachi Overlord manga. It will release the one volume of Fairy Tail Zero and the first volume of Yoimachi Overlord on November 2.
Fairy Tail Zero is a prequel to Mashima's own Fairy Tail manga, and tells the story of the founders of the Fairy Tail guild.
Mashima launched the Fairy Tail Zero manga in the first issue of Kodansha's Monthly Fairy Tail magazine in July 2014, and ended it a year later in July 2015. Kodansha published the manga's one compiled book volume last November. It is inspiring a television anime adaptation in January.
Elex Media publishes Mashima's main Fairy Tail manga in Indonesia.
Yoimachi Overlord centers on Mio, a princess from another world who travels to modern Japan, hellbent on conquering Kogimachi, which contains the connection between the modern world and her world. However, thanks to Setsuri, a girl who has the same royal demon's blood as Mio, and the help of the people in the shopping street, Mio's plans meet an early setback. She begins to live at a cafe, working for her living expenses, and biding her time to make her attack again.
Ida and Mizutani launched the manga in Shogakukan's Monthly Sunday GX magazine in December 2014, and ended it on April 19. Shogakukan published the manga's third and final compiled book volume on May 19.
