Amazon Lists New ‘Fairy Tail in Wonderland’ Novel
Online retailer Amazon is listing a new Fairy Tail novel slated for March 17 from Kodansha in Japan. The novel is titled Fushigi no Kuni no Fairy Tail (Fairy Tail in Wonderland). Ren Kanan (Ōedo Fairy Tail) is listed as the author along with original creator Hiro Mashima.
The original manga follows the adventures of world’s most notorious mage guild, Fairy Tail. It previously inspired two light novels published by Kodansha and written by Miu Kawasaki: Fairy Tail: Kokoro ni Yadoru Color (The Color Residing Within the Heart) in May 2012, and Fairy Tail 2: Dai Matō Enbu Sono Ato, Sorezore no Ichinichi (Each of the Fighters’ Day After the Grand Magic Games) in August 2014. Kanan’s Fairy Tail: Ōedo Fairy Tail novel (pictured right) shipped in October 2015.
The manga also inspired two television anime, several original video anime projects, and spinoff manga. The franchise‘s first anime film, Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess, opened in Japan on August 18, 2012. A second film, Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry is also planned for spring 2017.
Del Rey published the first 12 volumes of the original manga in North America, and Kodansha resumed publishing the manga in English with the 13th volume in 2011. While Kodansha Comics publishes the main Fairy Tail manga in North America, Crunchyroll is releasing new chapters online as they come out in Japan.
