Mashima-sensei drew me GRAY AND JUVIA’S SON. He made it personalized by writing my name, haha. He called him a bishounen and he wanted a picture of this drawing to keep. I’m so happy!!! He laughed and loved all of this.
Mashima tweeted that he went to the FT cafe today. And obviously he was spotted by some fans. ^^
He drew Natsu, Lucy and Happy around the cafe, but I think he let fans also request some characters for him to draw, and the fans apparently were gruvia fans, because one requested Gray and the other requested Juvia. And he drew them both right on the spot! I think the drawings he made are actually going to decorate the cafe. But it’s nice to see Gray and Juvia drawn again by Mashima for the first time since the series ended.
And it’s great to see the Japanese gruvia fans are still quite passionate about their ship. I would so be the girl dying beside him while he drew them haha! ^__^
Live from NYCC.
Meet the family. Gray, Juvia, and their son.
Gray belongs to @dooshiedoosh
Juvia belongs to @tea-lief
Gray and Juvia’s son belongs to @rieriebee
Mashima-sensei mentioned that there are so many Gruvia fans. He laughed and smiled while drawing their child. He also said “you must be happy with chapter 545 then.” That confirms what we all knew: Gruvia is CANON.
