Go To

Following the death of his teacher, Gray Fullbuster is attempting to find a new path in life.

A Fairy Tail spinoff, written and illustrated by Yusake Shirato, set between Ur's sacrifice and Gray joining Fairy Tail. Spans two volumes.

Fairy Tail Ice Trail provides examples of:

  • The Alcatraz: Black Vox.
  • Art Shift: Compared to the main series, due to not being drawn by Mashima.
  • Breaking Out the Boss: Five Bridge Familia attempt to break their master, Drum, out of Black Vox.
  • Demoted to Extra: Both Juvia Lockser and Jude Heartfilia make brief appearances.
  • Foregone Conclusion: Since this is a prequel, we already know that Five Bridge Familia's efforts to gain control of the Black Vox are doomed to fail, Gray will join the titular guild and befriend Natsu at the end of this spinoff, Gildarts won't find Cana until the Sirius Island arc, and Juvia will join forces with Phantom Lord.
