All good things must come to an end and it seems that the end of the Fairy Tail anime is coming to a lot sooner than anyone would have thought. As first found by 0takomu, it has been announced in the latest issue of Kodansha’s TV Magazine that Fairy Tail’s anime broadcast will end on March 30th.
The scan of the announcement from the magazine can be seen above and is clickable for a very high-res version of the announcement. It is currently unknown as to why Fairy Tail’s anime is ending, especially since the series is currently in one of the longest arcs in the Fairy Tail franchise.
The Fairy Tail manga appears to be continuing without interruption, but this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a popular manga’s anime come to an end despite the manga itself continuing with no interruption.
Update: Hiro Mashima, Fairy Tail’s mangaka, has taken to Twitter saying that he has good news, but that he will not reveal it yet and fans have to wait until the time comes for the announcement. Considering this Tweet comes immediately after news broke of the anime’s ending and is being classified as “good news,” we’ll leave it up to you to decide what this news could be.
