This year has been great for this series so far, the manga it’s at its peak celebrating its 10 year anniversary, which is a guarantee of great goodies coming up!
Whether you have a friend, relative or partner that loves this series, or if you’re looking for the hottest releases and items, you won’t miss a thing here!
On 2016 the anime ended with the Fairy Tail Zero saga and there’s no info yet on when it will return. I’m guessing for an October 2017 date, since the same happened with Attack on Titan and other series that got delayed.
The new Fairy Tail movie, titled ‘Dragon Cry’, will premiere on April.
However, there was a highly successful stage adaptation in May 2016 and the manga spin-offs released through the Kodansha app.
The latest manga chapters have been the most exciting point of the story and somehow hint to a possible end, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Fairy Tail latest Blu-ray releases
The year began slow for the BD/DVD combos, but they’re quickly catching up
Could BD/DVD sales worldwide be influencing the return of the anime?
I even feel nostalgic with the anime being so far in relation to what’s happening in the manga.
After winning big at the Grand Magic Games and rebuilding their destroyed guild, Fairy Tail’s clients come swarming back with plenty of work for the rowdiest wizards in Fiore. When a prestigious client requests the assistance of Natsu and Gray, the boys rally their team and head into Sun Village. Along the way new enemies and a few familiar foes are lying in wait. As things begin to spiral out of control, a wicked force rises and threatens to throw the magical world into darkness.
With the devastating Face weapon active, the battle against Tartaros seems desperate. The wizards of Fairy Tail must face down the Nine Demon Gates of Tartaros to stop the mass magic purge, or they will all become powerless. As the clock ticks down, what sacrifices will be made to protect the magic across the land? Will it even be enough?
Natsu and his friends will have to use everything they’ve got if they want to prevent E.N.D.’s revival. But when each member is up against a different foe, things aren’t looking good for our heroes. In this battle against demons, anything goes; including their ability to…resurrect?!

When the fire inside Natsu erupts, he will have a startling and unexpected reunion. But the time for catching up and seeking answers will have to wait—E.N.D. and the ready-to-detonate Faces are moments from destroying the magical world as they know it!
