The Fairy Tail manga will end in the next two volumes. Series creator Hiro Mashima announced the news in an afterword at the end of the latest manga volume.
According to Mashima, he never intended the series to continue as long as it has, but has a planned timeline in mind regardless.
“This project started as a fun thing to do while feeling a bit adventurous,” he said, in the afterword in the above tweet. “Since my previous work [Rave Master], was quite a heavy story, I remember thinking to myself that I wanted to go a bit light this time.”
According to YonkouProductions, Mashima is already beginning to plan his next project.
