Funimation to Stream Final Fairy Tail Anime
posted on by Karen Ressler
Funimation Entertainment announced on Friday that it will stream the "final series" of the television anime adaptation of Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail manga this fall. The series is listed on Funimation's simuldub lineup, but Funimation did not confirm whether it will offer an English-subtitled version as it has for previous seasons.
The anime will premiere on October 7, and new episodes will debut on TV Tokyo, TV Osaka, TV Aichi, TV Hokkaido, TV Setouchi, and TV Q Kyuushuu on Sundays at 7:00 a.m.
The main staff are all returning from the second and most recent television anime. Shinji Ishihira is directing at A-1 Pictures and Bridge, Masashi Sogo is handling series composition, and Shinji Takeuchi and Toshihiko Sano are designing the characters. Shoji Hata is the sound designer and Yasuharu Takanashi is composing the music. With the exception of the second animation studio and the character designers, the main staff is also the same as the first anime.
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 last July.
