Fairy Tail The Movie: The Phoenix Princess premieres 23 March 2013, Saturday, at 130pm WIB (UTC+7) on Animax Asia. The film adapts the Fairy Tail manga created by Mashima Hiro and the anime (Season 3 currently airing on Animax).
Lucy Heartfilia, a member of the world's most notorious wizard guild Fairy Tail, meets a mysterious girl named Eclair and her friend Momon, a strange bird. Eclair has somehow lost her memory and the only thing she remembers is that she must deliver the “Phoenix Stone” in her possession to somewhere.
Soon after, Fairy Tail is attacked by the dark guild Carbuncle, who launch a sinister plot against Fairy Tail. What happened in Eclair's past? What is the secret of the Phoenix Stones? In solving these mysteries, Fairy Tale will face its strongest foe yet! –Animax synopsis
Fairy Tail The Movie: The Phoenix Princess or Gekijōban Fairy Tail: Hōō no Miko premiered in Japanese theaters on 18 August 2012. Just like the Hayate the Combat Butler! Heaven is a Place on Earth movie, the first Animax showing is actually at 5am, but Animax (unsurprisingly) promotes the 130pm sked as the premiere.
Kakihara Tetsuya and Hirano Aya reprise their roles as Natsu Dragneel and Lucy Heartfilia, with latter also performing the ending theme,
Zutto Kitto. (The opening is
200 miles by Jang KeunSuk.) Joining the main cast as Eclair and pal Momon are Endo Aya (Suzune in Hayate the Combat Butler! Heaven is a Place on Earth) and Kanai Mika (Sumeragi Kaguya in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion). Of course, Kugimiya Rie, Nakamura Yuuichi, Ohara Sayaka, Satou Satomi and Horie Yui also return as Happy, Gray Fullbuster, Erza Scarlet, Wendy and Charle respectively, along with the other seiyuu who voice the Fairy Tail mages you know from the TV series.
Fujimori Masaya (director of Gekijō-ban Anime Nintama Rantaro Ninjutsu Gakuen Zenin Shutsudō! no Dan movie) helms the A-1 Pictures production from the screenplay written by Sogo Masashi (series composition, Fairy Tail).
Fairy Tail The Movie: The Phoenix Princess airs 23 March 2013, Saturday, at 130pm, also earlier at 5am and later at 11pm, on Animax Asia. (All times in WIB.)
