Just when you thought the Fairy Tail guild had wrapped up its last adventure, the world of wizards, dragons, and mythical quests is ready to enthrall you once more. A sequel is finally in the works, and it’s not just a retelling or a spinoff. The story picks up right where it left off, taking fans on a brand new expedition that might just redeem the franchise. Here’s the complete scoop on the much-anticipated Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest anime adaptation.
The Next Chapter in the Fairy Tail Saga
The sequel, tantalizingly titled Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest, began its manga journey back in July 2018. Fans eagerly awaited the possibility of an anime version, and their wishes were granted in July 2021 with the announcement of the anime adaptation. Release details remain enigmatic, teasing fans with the promise of late 2023 or early 2024 for a more concrete update.
New Quest, New Threats: What to Expect in Fairy Tail’s Latest Chapter
Hiro Mashima, the mastermind behind the Fairy Tail franchise, has always been adept at balancing action, emotion, and fantastical elements, helping the original series give other shonen biggies like Naruto and Bleach a run for their money. But will Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest capture the same essence? Based on its premise, it looks promising.
A Quest Worth Waiting a Century For
The gang’s all here! Natsu, Lucy, Gray, Erza, Wendy, Happy, and Carla embark on a perilous mission in the northern continent of Guiltina. As the title itself reveals, the task is herculean, remaining incomplete for over a century.
They are tasked with sealing the Five Dragon Gods—a group of malevolent dragons with powers that could spell global catastrophe. If you remember the havoc Acnologia wrought in the original series, you’ve got an idea of the colossal challenge that awaits our heroes.
But dragons aren’t the only thorn in their side. Meet Touka, the new girl in the Fairy Tail guild. She’s got something deeply sinister hiding behind her affable exterior. Referred to as the White Mage, her abilities lean towards stealing and erasing magic from others, making her the Zeref of this installment.

New Faces, Old Threats
Just when you think it’s a two-front war, in comes Diabolos. This new guild from Guiltina consists of dragon-eating members, and they’ve got an appetite for Dragon God meat. With malicious intent, Diabolos clashes with our heroes, adding yet another layer to the cake of conflict.
More Than Just a Sequel: A Revamp of the Franchise
For many, the original Fairy Tail anime had room for improvement—especially when it comes to its sometimes scattered narrative. The new series aims to focus intently on its primary storyline, breathing fresh life into the franchise.
“At its core, Fairy Tail still has plenty of magic, and the new anime will strip away the bloat so that magic can finally shine for all to see,” said a series insider.
