The manga series for "Fairy Tail" has been around since 2006, and for more than a decade, it has amassed millions of fans. As a matter of fact, on February 2017, the manga had 60 million collected volumes in circulation. The manga has been adapted into a series, which is equally popular.

Creator Hiro Mashima is known for making a story that is fun, "fist-pumping adventure," and the manga series is known for its beautifully written plot.

But just like all things, it, too, should come to an end. Recently, news circulated that the fairy tail manga series is going to end soon. No less than the creator confirmed this, and a lot of fans are heartbroken.

A statement released by Mashima confirmed what a lot of fans feared.

Two volumes left in manga series

A Twitter user, @YonkouProd, shared Mashima's statement. The creator said that his previous work was quite heavy, and he wanted to go light this time. He added that the difference between his old work and "Fairy Tail" is that unlike the story that he has done before, Natsu is not fighting for world peace, but to save his guild.

He even quoted Natsu saying “We joined the guild to live, that’s why I don’t care about the world” to prove his point that the plot for Natsu and his friends' story is different.

The end of Mashima's statement is the part where hearts were broken. He said that he wants to write a new story and that "Fairy Tail" manga will indeed be completed after two more volumes.
