The Japan Society announced on Thursday that it will host manga creator Hiro Mashima for a special talk on October 5 before his planned New York Comic Con visit. The event, named "Hiro Mashima: The Magical World of Fairy Tail," will take place at the Japan Society in New York City.
Mashima is the author of the Fairy Tail manga series, which 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 in 2018.
Mashima also created the manga Rave Master, which ran for 35 volumes and inspired a 51-episode anime adaption of the same name.
New York Comic Con will be held from October 5-8 at the Javits Center.
