(Editor’s Note: For those of you unfamiliar with Fairy Tail, the story follows a rough and tumble wizards Guild that seems to have a habit of getting into trouble. They’ll save the day, but with plenty of destruction along the way. The manga art bears a strong resemblance to One Piece)
Update: I was right. Fairy Tail will be simulcast on Crunchyroll.
Crunchyroll.com has been announcing the fall lineup for their anime videos over the last few days. Titles like Asura Cryin’ (Seasons 1 and 2) , Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee, and Sora No Otoshimono will be joining some returning favorites like Gintama and Naruto Shippuden.
I believe there will be another anime added to that list soon. Fairy Tail. No announcements have been made concerning Fairy Tail, so this is just a guess. I do have reasons for making this prediction.
Reasons to Believe
Here’s the short list of reasons why I think Fairy Tail will be simulcast on Crunchyroll. Take a look and see if you agree with me or not.
- Crunchyroll has said on the site that they’ll be featuring more than half of the anime titles currently airing in Japan, not counting children’s programming. If those numbers are accurate, then I have a better than 50/50 chance of being right.
- One of the companies that Crunchyroll has made deals with is TV Tokyo. That company shows up on the wiki page for Fairy Tail.
- I saw Fairy Tail listed in the Crunchyroll anime index. It appeared only briefly, then disappeared again. Lucky for me, I got a screenshot.
My last reason is what planted the seeds of hope.
I hope Fairy Tail is added to the list of anime being simulcast on Crunchyroll. It’s a great manga and I have high hopes for the anime.
