Ushio Andō provides story, art for manga slated to debut in fall

Manga creator Hiro Mashima revealed the tentative title and a visual for the previously revealed Fairy Tail spinoff manga on Wednesday. The manga is tentatively titled Fairy Tail City Hero, and Ushio Andō is providing the story and art. The manga is slated to debut this fall.

Mashima also revealed that there are plans to announce details of his tentatively titled Fairy Tail Zokuhen (Fairy Tail Sequel) spinoff manga soon. Mashima said in April that a Fairy Tail sequel manga is in the works in the form of a spinoff manga. He also stated that he is working on another Fairy Tail spinoff manga. He then stated in May that he is working on a "secret" project.

Mashima launched his Eden's Zero manga in this year's 30th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine on Wednesday. The manga is receiving a simultaneous release starting from the first chapter in English, French, Chinese, Korean, and Thai. North American publisher Kodansha Comics is releasing the series in English on outlets such as Crunchyroll Manga, Comixology, and Kindle.

Mashima had teased in January that the new manga "will be a new form of fantasy," and "Plue will make an appearance." Kodansha Comics revealed sketches the series in April.

Mashima's Fairy Tail manga series follows the adventures of the world's most notorious mage guild, Fairy Tail. The manga launched in 2006 and ended last July.

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's "final season" will premiere this fall.

Mashima created the manga Rave Master, which ran for 35 volumes and inspired a 51-episode anime adaption of the same name.
