So.... I'm not one to fanboy hardcore... Especially not with stuff like this. But I'm sorry, I am flipping out in excitement right now!!!!
Fairytail Zero WILL be animated and as soon as next year!!! This short Prequel to Fairytail was phenonminal and really gave insight to Mavis and Zeref and how the guild was founded. ( I won't go into spoilers)
I loved this manga so much... Being able to see it animated some day would be a dream come true.
