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.
- An Ice Person: Gray, of course.

- The Napoleon: Nez Booms wears stilts and freaks out when Gray calls him a runt.
- Prequel: Set after Ur's death and before Gray joins Fairy Tail.
