Since the manga ended last July, fans of the series have been clamoring for a sequel. The 545th episode ended with the whole crew heading out to their next mission and readers cannot help but think that there must be a sequel in the works.

Well, no need to fret. Mashima just announced not just one, but three things to look forward to. And the first on his list is a Fairy Tail series spin-off that will also serve as its sequel.

According to his tweet, he will be coming up with two spin-offs. One will be a spin-off sequel to Fairy Tail; while the other will be a spin-off manga. No further details were given so we have to settle with this for now.

Five spin-off mangas based from Fairy Tail have already been released since 2014. Namely, Fairy Tail Zero by Hiro Mashima, Fairy Tail: Ice Trail by Yūsuke Shirato, Fairy Tail Blue Mistral by Rui Watanabe, Fairy Girls by Boku, and a three-part meta series, Fairy Tail Gaiden by Kyota Shibano.

Aside from the spin-offs, Mashima also announced that he is working on a new series that will come out in Boy Magazine No. 30 and will be available on June 27.
