Mashima is gearing up for the launch of his new untitled manga series on June 27, and this secret project seems to be unrelated to it. In the Tweet, he confesses to becoming “a little confused” while working on Fairy Tail‘s finale, the new series, and an unannounced project.
Mashima teases that new manga ideas are constantly emerging. He is known for working on multiple projects simultaneously: during Fairy Tail‘s run, Mashima also wrote Chameleon (one-shot), Monster Hunter Orage (4 volumes), Nishikaze to Taiyou (one-shot), Hoshigami no Satsuki (one-shot), two Fairy Tail light novels, and supervised four Fairy Tail spin-off manga.
Kodansha shared a series of sketches related to Mashima’s new manga, but they have been silent on other details. They also confirmed that Mashima will be supervising a Fairy Tail sequel spin-off.
