Hiro Mashima shares annual Tanabata art
On July 7th, Japan celebrates the star festival Tanabata, which marks the meeting of lover deities Orihime and Hikoboshi who are able to reunite only on the seventh day of the seventh month. Traditions include wearing yukata for summer festivals, and, as in past years, Fairy Tail author Hiro Mashima has taken the opportunity to present his take on the story.
