Sorry for bothering you but I saw a post on my twitter dash and it seems that some people are accusing Mashima of tracing their art or tracing his art (account is mutsuki123)
This ask made me left my bed in an instant so I can reply this as soon as possible!! So I tried to look it up if it’s true but I’m just laughing so much because this person (mutsuki123) started all of it by accusing Mashima that the Fairy Tail volume 59 cover was traced from his art.
Now you might be wondering why am I laughing about this person accusing Mashima. The reason why is simple, it doesn’t make sense at all, especially when he just started to accuse three well-known manga artists (Mashima included) last January 03, 2017. Also if you’re a fan of Fairy Tail and paid attention to Mashima’s works, we already see a lot of face-to-face drawings in his manga. Here’s an example:
Plus there’s like a ton of videos of Mashima drawing Natsu from scratch.
I mean there’s like four videos of them when you search it up on youtube. So yup! There’s no way Mashima is tracing the art of this mutsuki123 person.
Besides, this person didn’t even tried to contact Mashima by tweeting/DM him, he just tweeted by telling his followers to tweet Mashima about it. Now this conclude that the accusation is just ridiculous -.-
