Hiro Mashima Teases More Details About Planned New Work

Plue will appear in work that will be "new form of fantasy"

Fairy Tail manga creator Hiro Mashima posted on Twitter on Saturday more details about his planned new work. Mashima said that while he was at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, "as expected, the most frequently asked question was about my new work."

He then teased three new things about his work:

  • "It will be a new form of fantasy"
  • "Jokes will be quite a challenge"
  • "Plue will make an appearance"

Mashima had posted on Twitter on December 31 that he will "work hard [to launch] a new serialization" this year.

The 45th Angoulême International Comics Festival awarded Mashima with the Fauve Special Award on Friday. Mashima attended the event, and the festival is hosting an exhibition dedicated to his work.

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 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.
