Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!
Three years ago, Siva, an adventurer specializing in using monsters fought a mighty Dragon Ape and managed to seal him in human form. In the present, Keel is travelling from place to place searching for Siva to force him to remove the seal keeping him trapped in his current state. Hoping to find some clues he approaches Ravi, another monster user, but when she informs him that Siva has been missing for the last two years, it seems that Keel’s search may not be as easy as he had hoped. After discovering that with Ravi’s magic, Keel is able to temporarily unlock his power and transform his right arm back to its natural state, they decide to form a party. Now, Keel, Ravi, her pig-devil companion Mippy and their new acquaintance, the magic warrior, Blue, are setting off on an adventure to find Siva and beat whatever monsters cross their path along the way.
Buster Keel! and Fairy Tale are a lot alike in the main characters. Natsu solves his problems with fists and that's just how Keel likes to do it. Keel is a monster type with a heated temper and can summon about a fourth of his powers in order to destroy the opponent. Natsu is similar in that he gets angry and can summons his power destroy the opponent. Both early on formed a group of friends with each others weakness as there strength. Though just like Natsu, Keel also has a friend-hate relationship with a person in his group.
Another resemblance is that the girls who join the group in each manga are very much alike. Their powers are similar and each has that happy attitude that we all love so much.
Action-packed manga with tons of enemies and fight scenes. If you haven't read these 2 manga yet, well then I think you should be doing that right now.
If your a fan of Fairy Tail or Buster Keel it is highly likely you'll love the other. Once reading a few chapters of either series striking similarites in the plot, characters and development, artwork and dialouge start to emerge.The comedy in both series are almost identical.
1. The strong-dragon-like-idiotic-hero meets pretty blond magic user and her cute companion.
2. The three embark on a journey and meet ice/water melee user.
3. Form party and the ARCH NEMISIS APPEARS.
Sound familiar? Both series follow to this plot outline, even down to the tatoo on the protagonist's arm.
Guaranteed, if you liked one series you'll love the other.
Buster keel Is VERY similar to Fairy Tail, so similar that I'm getting suspicious BK started off as a FT ripoff... I mean, the plot, the main character, the type of humor, the fights, the universe and even the artwork, everything feels very similar, if you can get pass those similarities and you're looking for similar adventures, look no further, you won't be dissapointed, but don't expect innovative plotlines.
Both stories are about a group of monster hunters. The group in each case has a very similar construction; A self-centered, very strong character with dragon related abilities, a similarly strong rival with ice/water capabilities, a beautiful girl, and a small mascot monster. The adventures, charaters, artwork, and overall atmosphere of both series are very much alike.
Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil's Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream... and maybe even his appetite!
Fairy Tail and One Piece resemble each other in a lot of ways. They both focus heavily on friendship and how emotions for those you love can give that extra 10% you need to beat your opponent. One of the main characters in Fairy Tail, Natsu, also reminds me of Monkey D. Ruffy in a lot of sutuations. If you've only read one of them give the other one a try.
There characters are very similar and the plot and pacing can give you a feeling of deja vu at times.
Where are Fairy Tale and One Piece not similar. Luffy and Natsu both have remarkable power and take every challenge head on. They both are happy go-lucky guys who are optimistic about everything. When both mangas started out, both characters were without close friends but as the story went on, they gradually started to form a group of unbeatable friends with all sorts of powers.
Though the story's may differ, the atmosphere one gets from reading about how both Natsu and Luffy take on hardships is almost inspirational. The battles are intense and just freaking powerful. Each page is suspenseful in both mangas and everyone should jump aboard with Natsu and Luffy's adventure.
Aside from both being popular shounen manga, both One Piece and Fairy Tail are comedic adventure stories that are a bit wacky and good fun. Both Luffy and Natsu are very similar in their boundless confidence, massive appetite and slightly dim nature. If you like one, it's well worht trying the other.
Haru Glory lives peacefully on Garage Island with his sister. One day, Haru fishes a strange dog-like creature named Plue out of the ocean, and soon after meets its master, an old man named Shiba. With this man comes terrible news: the world is in peril, for the evil organization Demon Card is attempting to conquer it with power-giving stones known as Dark Bring. To combat this threat Shiba has spent much of his life fighting back with Rave, a Holy Bring; and the Ten Commandments, a sword it powers. When members of Demon Card arrive at the island, Shiba discovers that Rave and the Ten Commandments will now only respond to Haru, making the young boy the new Rave Master. Armed with newfound power, Haru and Plue set forth to put a stop to Demon Card.
Big fan of Hiro Mashima's work, the creator of Rave Master, Fairy Tail, Monster Soul, and Monster Hunter Orage. The story are excellent, well enough to make you hooked or become a fan of Hiro. I admits that I am big fan of him, hard to not be a fan of him. Since his work are popular for reason. May not be the best, but still mighty interesting story. The art is another reason why I am a fan. All of his works has comdey, romances, drama, fantasy and most of all plenty of actions that most of people craves. So stop wasting your time on reading this, and start reading his work if you havn't done so.
These are pretty much identical. They were both made by Hiro Mashima, so it isn't surprising. The characters are so similar that I feel like I'm reading a continuation of either story. Plue even makes an appearance in Fairy Tail. Both are filled with action, so if you like one, you will like the other.
One of the most epic manga, ever. It's incredible how Hiro Mashima could create a so exciting characters that made the history of mangas. In fact, there are a lot of links of Rave also in Fairy Tail (like Plue).
Both mangas come from the same artist and have in many ways a very similar feeling when you read them not to mention that the main character and story develops in an interesting way.
Rin Okumura is a seemingly ordinary boy living at the Southern Cross Boy’s Monastery. One day, however, Rin encounters a boy who has been possessed by a demon. Amidst the struggle, he not only awakens latent powers sealed within him, but also learns that he is the son of Satan! No longer able to stay under the protection of the church and with his very existence straddling the line between human and demon, Rin decides to fight against his parentage and joins the True Cross Order as an exorcist. Now, the teen must attend the True Cross Academy and begin special exorcist training alongside his new comrades all while keeping his identity a secret; but can the son of Satan really become a true exorcist?
the main boys of this show are very famillier feeling both set in diff world one with magic and another with demons you get the same feel when your watching them the are both devolping there powers slowley witha wild child kinda past if you like one your sure to like the other
Blue Exorcist and Fairy Tail are refreshingly good shounen series with strong, diverse casts, powers that are fun to watch, and a great balance between humor and action. If you like one of these, you are almost certain to love the other as well! ^_^
Teamwork, comradery, memorable characters, interesting character development, beautiful artwork and great stories; these manga have it all. The protagonists are both kind of dense but extremely courageous and do everything they can to help people.
In Elfenland, where monsters are a constant target of bounty hunters, live Aki, Touran, James and Mamii, a group of extremely powerful humanoid monsters known collectively as “Black Airs”. Despite their desire to live in peace, with hefty prices on their heads and immense strength, Black Airs is a prime target for money-hungry humans and jealous monsters alike. With the likes of rebellion groups attempting to scout them and three-headed beasts seeking revenge, will Black Airs ever be able to live quietly in a world where humans and monsters coexist in harmony?
From the same Mangaka, these two adventure tales are very similar, I'd say too much alike. The concept is entirely the same in both mangas, the main characters are basically the same (a character that randomly strips down, a pet, a luffy-like main character, etc). The only difference is the universe the group of adventures are in. In Fairy Tail it's a world of Magicians and Monster Soul is a world of Monsters. In my opinion Monster Soul felt a bit too shallow and plotless so give it a go only if you want a fun quick read.
If you like Hiro Mashima's style then you'll enjoy both of these. Both manga are about a group of extremely powerful individuals who make up an infamous group. They also both share the same style of comedy and action.
Monster Soul is similar to Fairy Tail, while it may have something to do with the author being the same, both are about a group of friends that go up against the odds to fight for the justice they believe in.
