What to Expect From the Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Anime

  • Share

Fairy Tail’s sequel manga is expected to receive an anime adaptation soon. Here’s everything anime fans need to know about the series going in.

Just as Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail manga received an anime adaptation, its sequel will also be receiving the same treatment. Titled Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest, the manga follow-up began in July 2018, and the confirmation of an anime series landed in July 2021. Considering the original Fairy Tail anime rivaled the popularity of Shōnen Jump‘s Big Three, there’s no telling how successful its next installment will be. Assuming it does anywhere near as well as its predecessor, it’s worth diving into what this series is all about.

The manga sequel picks up where the original Fairy Tail left off. Natsu, Lucy, Gray, Erza, Wendy, Happy, and Carla have all embarked on a 100 Years quest in the northern continent of Guiltina. As the title implies, the job is so difficult that nobody’s been able to complete it in at least a century. Regardless, in classic Fairy Tail fashion, Natsu is confident that he can succeed with the help of his friends.

The Threat Level Escalates in Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest

The titular “100 Years Quest” that Natsu’s group undertake requires them to seal the Five Dragon Gods. These five dragons are so powerful that each one of them has the potential to wreak havoc on a global scale. This puts them all on the same level of threat as Acnologia of the previous series. As difficult as sealing these Dragon Gods sounds, they’re not the only challenge that Natsu and company must face.

Back home, a new mage by the name of Touka has joined the Fairy Tail guild in hopes of meeting Natsu. She seems like a nice fit for the guild, but harbors a sinister personality deep inside of her. Known as the White Mage, this dangerous being apparently has the ability to steal and erase others’ magic. If the Five Dragon Gods are the Acnologia of 100 Years Quest, then the White Witch would be the Zeref of this series, and she’s referred to as such.

As if all of this wasn’t bad enough, there’s another major antagonistic faction in 100 Years Quest. While trying to seal the Five Dragon Gods, Natsu and his friends find themselves at odds with Diabolos. This Guiltina-based guild is comprised entirely of members who gain their abilities by either eating dragons or cannibalizing other Dragon Slayers. Naturally, they’ve developed a craving for Dragon God meat. Since the goal is to “seal” the Dragon Gods and not “slay” them, Natsu and his friends would like to complete their task as assigned if they can help it. In any case, Diabolos doesn’t exactly have the best of intentions, so it would be best if they didn’t get their hands on the Dragon Gods’ power.

Besides antagonists, 100 Years Quest should have plenty of things to keep veteran Fairy Tail fans happy. There will be plenty of cameos from old characters, callbacks to the original series, comedy, fanservice, action, and everything else that gave Fairy Tail its unique charm. Anyone who was a fan of Fairy Tail will likely get fired up watching 100 Years Quest.

While no information has currently been given about when 100 Years Quest‘s first slew of episodes will be released, there’s still been plenty of buzz surrounding the upcoming anime series. It should generate a large following, bringing back fans of the original Fairy Tail while winning over newer anime fans with its exhilarating action and likable characters. As long as the anime can capture the magic of the manga, it should be met with great success.
