This year’s 31st issue of Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine has announced that Atsuo Ueda will launch the official sequel of Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail manga in Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket manga app on July 25, 2018. The magazine’s 34th issue will also publish the first chapter on the same day. Mashima is providing the original storyboards for the manga, and Ueda is drawing the series.
Mashima said in April 2018 that a Fairy Tail sequel manga is in the works in the form of a spin-off manga. He also stated that he is working on another Fairy Tail spin-off manga. He then stated in May 2018 that he is working on a “secret” project.
