I heard it's because the anime is catching up with the manga too fast and they're running out of material.

Well, that would explain it. I think I can wait now. Although, I am very curious about what happens. How long do ya'll think its going to be before we get any new videos?

I'm not really sure, this is the only clue I have for now.

- Final Fairy Tail Episode Ends With 'To Be Continued' Message
- http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-03-30/final-fairy-tail-episode-ends-with-to-be-continued-message


The "final" episode of the television anime adaptation of Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail manga ended with the words "To Be Continued" when the episode aired on Saturday in Japan. Kodansha's TV Magazine revealed earlier this month that the series would be ending its television broadcast run on March 30. At that time, Mashima had posted a statement to his fans on Twitter saying "Until the time comes, I cannot say something I've always wanted to say, even on Twitter. Please be patient and wait until the time comes for me to announce some good news."

Mashima then added a few days later: "it's actually not over yet. I can't say more than this, but I hope you watch the rerun starting in April and wait for the day I can announce some good news." He added in English, "Anime is not the end. Don't stop believing."


Also: https://twitter.com/hiro_mashima/status/317831936485769217. Which says:

"For now, 'to be continued' is the only thing I can say, but new OADs, thursday's reruns, and the original work are all still continuing so please continue to support fairy tail."


So that's it for now.

I am hoping it is just so the manga can have more material for the anime. Hopefully it will be back on in a year or so

One guy writes the manga while a team makes the anime so the anime caught up. Simple as that really. Will come back when there is enough manga to make another cour or a few cours.

I think there's a similar forum topic but with a different title. Too lazy to actually find it though...

But like everyone's been saying the anime has caught up with the manga material. From what I know the manga is only ahead by 5-6 chapters. And it's weird to put a filler in the middle of the arc so they opted to end it instead. I know there are reruns being shown in Japan known as Fairy Tail Best though.

Probably this one. It's not a very old thread but it seemed to come and go pretty quickly.

There's also http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-797533/fairy-tails-over-for-the-time-being-anyways but based on a quick look that was more for discussion about the anime content than about it being discontinued.

Yes, those are the right thread and I suggest to you Cory2010 to post in either of those threads.

Thus I mark this thread a duplicate and therefore:
