Manga UK Announces Fairy Tail Zero, Fairy Tail: Final Season for UK Release and Confirmation on Fairy Tail Collection Sets

The UK home video release of Fairy Tail has so far, to be blunt, been terrible. It started with Manga Entertainment UK first releasing several volumes on DVD, before upgrading to Blu-Ray in both Part and Collection sets, and then going back to poorly encoded PAL DVD only releases before losing the distribution license to Anime Limited, who then continued to release the series in DVD only format in partnership with FUNimation.

Now, several years after its debut, Manga Entertainment UK are back and have confirmed that they will not only release the entire series on Blu-Ray in Collection sets but will also release Fairy Tail Zero, which is the origin story of Fairy Tail’s first guild master, and Fairy Tail: Final Season, which is the final season of the anime series, on both Blu-Ray and DVD.

Life in the Red Lizard guild is a challenge for young Mavis Vermillion. Forced into servitude, she suffers constant abuse and struggles to survive. Yet despite everything, she refuses to give up hope or to even shed a tear. But when they’re suddenly raided by the Blue Skull guild, everything changes. Left alone with Zera, the guild master’s daughter, the two start their lives over from zero.

With only each other, Mavis and Zera do what it takes to stay alive. And when they come across a band of treasure hunters, things begin to look up! With hope and new friends by her side, Mavis finally has a chance at a better life—and to create a path towards a guild of her own.
