The manga and anime follow the adventures of world’s most notorious mage guild, Fairy Tail. A-1 Pictures and Satelight launched the anime last October. Del Rey is publishing the 12th volume of the original manga in North America this month. Crunchyroll simculasts the anime into several countries within an hour of each episode’s Japanese broadcast.
Mashima also created the Monster Hunter Orage manga and the Rave manga, which Tokyopop published in North America under the name Rave Master. Like Fairy Tail, Rave was made into a television anime series.
