"Natsu, Lucy, Happy, Erza, and the whole Fairy Tail Guild are back in action! And they've decided to tackle the '100 Years Quest' — a job no one's dared take on since the founding of the guild more than a century ago. A mysterious town, a baffling spirit, a ghastly new enemy … and a brand new continent to explore. When you’re with real friends, the adventures never stop," the official manga description read.

Hiro Mashima's original "Fairy Tail" anime had more than 300 episodes that ended in 2019. The original manga has a total of 63 volumes. The first "Fairy Tail" manga series inspired three TV anime adaptations (its final season aired in 2018), two anime movies, multiple video anime projects and a spin-off manga.
