Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English and it describes the story:
Natsu, Lucy, Happy, Erza and the entire Fairy Tail guild are back up and running! And they decided to take on the “100 Years Quest” – a job no one had dared to undertake since its founding more than a century ago. A mysterious town, a bewildered soul, a terrifying new enemy… and a whole new continent to explore. When you’re with real friends, the adventures never stop!
Ueda (Dr. Prisoner, Hajime Shachō Monogatari) launched the official Mashima manga sequel Fairy Tail in Kodansha with the Magazine Pocket app on January 25, 2018. Mashima is providing the original story for the manga, and Ueda draw them. Kodansha published the ninth compiled book volume on July 9.
The manga Fairy Tail inspired manga has adapted 3 parts (including a “final season” in 2018), two anime movies, several original video anime projects, and the manga spinoff. Kodansha Comics publishes the original manga and some of its spin-offs in North America.
