Unless it had one of the most rushed final chapters ever, it survived cancellation. There is no reason for them to cancel it at this point as they only needed to end 3 series to make space. Keeping...

Most definitely. He just plans ahead, and works the extra chapters into his schedule in manageable chunks. He also makes good use of his assistants.
Considering that he's shown his coloring...

The thing about the next chapter title is that it isn't "The Song of the Heavenly Dragon".
The title for the next chapter is "Tartaros Arc Part 2: The Song of the Heavenly Dragon". The title for...

A noble idea in theory. In practice it'll just encourage people to migrate elsewhere to discuss the chapter for a variety of reasons.

Veteran mangaka typically don't switch publishers, particularly successful ones. It's usually only the younger, unsuccessful ones that might move around until they give up or find a place that's a...

For those for whom it may be relevant, Crunchyroll's expanded what countries it's English manga is available in:
On a related note, here's the link to Crunchyroll's version of the chapter:

It's definitely not going to be with a different publisher. He's not talking about a post Fairy Tail series, he's talking about about a series running at the same time as Fairy Tail. He's pretty...

He probably just didn't pay much attention to Happy, and didn't realize Happy was a flying cat. He just left to summon minions to properly secure Natsu and Happy, and when they showed, Happy made his...

The Kindle edition of volume 38 is out. The question was "I get the feeling there are too many brothers and sisters in this manga." with a picture of young Kagura and Simon. Here's the answer that...
January 13, 2014 01:03 PM
The Kindle edition of up to volume 38 is already out.

With everyone in charge killed by Tartarus, Doranbolt needed information on Tartarus, which their old allies Oracion Seis would likely have. In particular he went to Cobra who had previously...

It will most likely be out on the 20th, as that's when the chapter would normally leak.
December 13, 2013 11:23 AM
It would pretty safe to assume that. I certainly am assuming that.

Here's Weekly Shounen Magazine's December schedule:
#01 : December 04

Chapter 362 is in issue #1. Chapter 363 is in issue #2-3....

I don't think the full series is up for legal streaming anywhere. I'd recommend trying Funimation's website:
They appear to have up to...
December 05, 2013 12:31 AM
Yeah, this year was really competitive, with Magi and especially Attack on Titan getting strong sales boosts from successful anime, Silver Spoon building lots of momentum from awards and it's anime,...
December 03, 2013 08:22 AM
Um, what? Fairy Tail had five volumes come out this year 36-40. Not count volume 35 which came out a few days before the period measured. Volume 41 isn't out yet. It also 3.79 million this year, vs...

Keep in mind, Doriate already looked like a non-human. He then transformed into an even more powerful and monstrous form when enraged by Gray. There's little reason that Tartarus couldn't be capable...
November 18, 2013 04:18 PM
As a matter of fact, yes, if someone cannot come up with a source for a claim, it's nothing more than a rumor, and can be disregarded as not true. This would hardly be the first time this happened in...
November 14, 2013 04:43 PM
No offense, intended, but lacking a source other than a vague "a blog or interview" I'm just going to assume it's false information. It would not be the first time I traced such claims to a forum...
November 12, 2013 06:51 PM
It's pure speculation. Very, very dubious speculation that's unlikely to be true.
November 04, 2013 09:17 AM
"name" is the term for manga rough draft pages. He's talking about having done 36 pages of name.

The 9 councilors are essentially politicians. How many politicians do you know are as capable in combat as the freshly trained recruits in the armies they command? Yes "Siegrain" and Ultear were...
November 01, 2013 02:12 PM
Which information were you thinking of? It'd be easier to check some specific pages.
November 01, 2013 12:55 PM
Wind definitely does not automatically empower fire in Fairy Tail. Natsu had trouble fighting Erigor, a wind magic user, and got stomped by Aria and air magic user.
On a different note, now...
October 29, 2013 10:03 AM
In theory yes they run with a few chapters as a buff. In practice, I suspect a lot of them are cutting it much closer. Anytime you see a series miss an issue, while still being listed in the ToCs,...
October 24, 2013 12:07 PM
The first one is Kagura, not Minerva. The Erza picture is from the inside flap of Volume 40.
Yeah I got confused :sweat. Cheers
October 18, 2013 09:34 AM
Cobra can't use magic while in the cell, so his hearing is irrelevant to Doranbolt's actions.
October 10, 2013 09:54 AM
In which case you would have missed out on the news that Tartarus is a bunch of demon worshipers, and may have a copy of the fabled Book of Zeref that's been mentioned throughout the series.
October 10, 2013 08:57 AM
On a related note, here's what Mashima posted on twitter yesterday about this chapter:
October 04, 2013 01:28 PM
That's basically never going to happen. It really should be clear by now that Mashima's not interested in the "lose so they realize they need to train and get stronger" cliches/tropes. He runs to a...
September 24, 2013 11:02 AM
It's pure speculation on people's part. It does not really have anything to back it up. At this point it kind of runs counter to what we know. People were first speculating that Zeref was a...
September 21, 2013 01:15 AM
Fairy Tail is a manga good at what it tries to do, be a comedy/adventure/action series. It's developed a bit of an ecchi element as a distant fourth.
It's rather ridiculous to try and cast...
September 05, 2013 01:54 PM
That was just my first thought. See the part I added after doing some additional checking. Volume 11 has a Limited edition that's likely getting 10,000-20,000 sales of it's own this week. Not enough...
September 05, 2013 12:04 PM
That's probably related to it being the one most recently released. People are still burning through their backlog of the series rather than immediately buying the newest book as soon as possible.
September 05, 2013 11:50 AM
That is Hatsune Miku of Vocaloid fame:
September 05, 2013 11:47 AM
They will, but it pretty much has to be rock bottom for a really long time like Nurarihyon was.
September 03, 2013 12:41 PM
Nah, Giant Killing is pretty popular, and Area no Kishi does reasonably well to my knowledge, they just aren't Jump series.
