I am sure that you all are pretty excited to see the return of the Fairy Tail anime, as the premiere is just around the corner. So, if you wanted a quick recap on what happened in the story thus far, and what to expect from the upcoming Fairy Tail Season 3 episode 1, or the Fairy Tail episode 278, then we are going to help you out with that by giving you a quick recap in this article.
The previous season of the show ended with Natsu returning from his year-long training with Happy and immediately showing off his new, and explosive powers, in the Grand Magic Games. He was able to instantly overwhelm all the mages present and even able to vaporize his surroundings including the stadium, and of course Lucy’s clothes as well. The season ended with Natsu and Happy reuniting with Lucy and the trio going on together to get the band back together and bring all of the Fairy Tail guild and make it the strongest once again. The manga ended more than a year ago and ever since then, the work on the final anime season has begun. The author, Hiro Mashima, has been busy working on his new series, Eden’s Zero as well as on the Fairy Tail spinoff, the 100 Years Quest, but he’s been hinting at the final season for a long time and he didn’t disappoint.
So, if you’ve been a fan of the show for a long time and wanted to see the hot mages like Lucy Heartfilia, Erza Scarlet, Mirajane Strauss, Juvia Lockster and more back in action, then you don’t have to wait for long as the season 3 is about to start airing!
Fairy Tail Season 3 Episode 1 Spoilers
If you weren’t able to hold your excitement and shifted to reading the manga when the season 2 ended with the episode 277, then you’d already have a good idea of what’s going to happen in the upcoming season.
The show will start off on a lighter note as the guild members will meet each other and there won’t be high-octane action from the very beginning. You should expect to see the chemistry of Natsu and Lucy in the very first episode, and also the reactions of Natsu and Happy when Lucy breaks the news that the guild’s been disbanded for some time now.
The trio will then decide to go and start finding their friends and get the guild back together, because they are going to need it to battle the strongest opponents yet!
Their very first visit will be to the Lamia Scale Guild where they’ll find out that Wendy and Carla has joined them. It will be tough for the trio to convince them to deflect from their current guild and come back, and it will take some cajoling, but they will end up making their decision and the team’s going to get bigger.
There won’t be anything else happening in the very first episode as the creators will keep it on a lighter note. However, you can expect to see some developments from the second or third episode as the Avatar Arc kicks in and more Fairies make their appearance.
Fairy Tail Season 3 Episode 1 Release Date
You don’t have to wait for a long time as the first episode of the upcoming season is going to air on October 7th, 2018 and will keep airing new episode every Sunday following that. There are many unofficial sites where you can watch the episode; but I would recommend you to go with the official sources like Funimation and Crunchyroll so that you not only show your support to the author and the anime community, but also do your bit to keep the anime going for as long as it can.
So, this was the complete article on the upcoming Fairy Tail season 3 episode 1 spoilers and release date. If you liked the article, and have been eagerly waiting for the premiere, then the wait is over. Do let us know what you expect from the final season of the magic anime show!
