Fairy Tail’s creator Hiro Mashima has announced on his twitter account that the series will see a fifth OAD (original anime DVD bundled as a bonus included with a manga tankoubon release).

The animation will bring to life the series’ 298th chapter, “Dokidoki Ryūzetsu Land,” and Mashima teases on his tweet that it will be “sexier than the regular anime series.” The story is set during the Grand Magic Games when various guilds gather at the pool for some fun (and the chaos that ensues).


Mashima has also posted an original concept sketch of Natsu from the animation project, to demonstrate the care that the project director is taking with drawing the characters’ faces. More details about the OAD will be provided in a flyer included with 36th tankōbon when it hits the shelves in Japan this Friday, February 15.
