The series creator behind Fairy Tail, Hiro Mashima, has shed new light on the love life of Gajeel Refox and Levy McGarden with special new art! Fairy Tail remains one of the most notable anime and manga franchises of recent years, and that’s largely due to the sheer number of characters series creator Hiro Mashima has been able to squeeze into the series. This led to all sorts of surprising dynamics that arose, which also included many surprising romantic relationships between characters. Most surprising was probably the bond between Gajeel and Levy.
Although they didn’t seem to really match up at first, the more the two fought side by side, the more the relationship grew between them. They’re one of the few couples Mashima has allowed to come to full fruition (something fans criticized for the original series), and now fans are getting another cute look at their romantic life together in a special new sketch. which Mashima shared with fans on Twitter!

Thankfully, Gajeel and Levy are among the fan favorites returning to the franchise in the official sequel, Fairy Tail: 100 Years of Quest, but there are big changes between the two when they reappear. This new sequel series will one day launch its own official anime adaptation, but the potential release date, staff, or production studio have yet to be announced as of this writing. So if you wanted to jump into the sequel before the anime debuted, Fairy Tail: 100 Years of Quest was officially licensed by Kodansha Comics, and they describe the continuation of the series as such:
“Natsu, Lucy, Happy, Erza and the entire Fairy Tail Guild are back in action! And they’ve decided to tackle the ‘100 Year Quest’ – a job no one has dared to undertake since the founding of the guild more than a century old. A mysterious city, a bewildering spirit, a horrifying new enemy…and a whole new continent to explore. When you’re with true friends, the adventures never end!”
