Fairy Tail

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?!

Fairy Tail was the greatest disappointment in my life in my manga reading history. Granted I haven't read that many, out of all that I've read this one is definitely #1 in failed potential.  Fairy Tail started out great, it was one of my favorite stories I had read in awhile. I often talked about it with those who also read it, my PS4 name circulates around one of the characters. Heck, even my nickname on this website is a loose translation of the character Erza. Eiraza is basically how I use to say her name before someone corrected me. I would change it but it doesn't bother me that greatly.  Erza became my favorite female character of all time and I adored and admired her strength shown in the story.  I fell in love with the ships of Gray and Juvia, or Gajeel and Levy, and naturally Erza and Jellal. I guess I can't forget to mention Natsu and Lucy, but their intimate relationship growth was always given the least amount of effort since they were the main characters.  I thought the fights were amazing, that the determination and teamwork of the guild members was something to adhere to and an example to set in my own life.  But as it continued it more or less was always the same thing. Friendship was literally 100% of the reason all battles were won. Naturally the characters were skilled but there wasn't a level cap to any of them. Even though they would be clearly beaten, they would think of their guild and win.  And there was no power meter. Erza was always the strongest, but then sometimes Natsu was the strongest. But if Erza and Natsu battled Erza would win even if Natsu did something Erza couldn't and same thing with Gray and Natsu. Their own amount of power was always fluctuating and it never made any sense.  There was never any tension after awhile. They always won, no matter what. No one important ever died and if they did die, they came back somehow and were suddenly not dead. Everything was always fine.  <SPOILER> The worst part of it all, the thing that really destroyed this manga for me is that it ended the same way it had began. The chapter when lucy ran off with natsu to join the guild and start their adventures...thats literally exactly how it ends. The same way. Lucy running off with Natsu for more adventures. No officially stated relationships except maybe Gajeel and Levy but I can't even count that with just...the lack of effort in it. No tragedy. No real conclusion. Questions that were never answered even though they were clearly addressed in the story as if we would see the answer to those questions.  This manga....just sucks.


A replica of One Piece? Seems like it.Worth reading? Yes.Fairy Tail undertakes another fantasy setting. I have always been skeptic of fantasy anime's as most of them is always obscure, and prone to be uninteresting as the story progresses. But that mistake isnt repeated here in Fairy Tail as Mashima Hiro performs excellent on making his own fantasy world out of thin air.In this manga, all sorts of mages roam about the world. Some of them even bond together and form a guild that takes requests from people in exchange for money, there are even such guilds that are "dark", who are not among the law-abiding. Fairy Tail is among the hundred of guilds out there. But unlike the general they, to quote their master" do what you think is right". Yes, they do what they believe they should be doing, all for the sake of just finishing a job. Whether its wrecking a house to turning a whole town into a scrapyard, it doesnt matter for them, as long as they get the job done.Fairy Tail tells the story of Natsu Dragneel, a Fire Mage who was raised by an ancient fire-breathing dragon. and his newfound friend Lucy, a Spirit Mage who's pretty much new on the world of guilds. Together they and the rest of the members of the Fairy Tail guild goes through all sorts of adventures. At first glance, it may sound lame because of how it follows the monster-of-the-week formula. And yes it does. But dont let that stop you from reading this. Sure it is pretty much follows a shounen formula. But to my surprise, the plot twists were variable. I am constantly impressed on how detailed the arcs were. They start out as something terribly cliche then suddenly turn out to something unexpected. Furthermore, each character is connected to each other and each of their past is no exception either. I love how every character is significant to further progress the story. The art during action scenes is very impressive. It is comprehensive. You can understand what is happening to the characters and around them. At some climactic parts, I even got around to get my Ipod to listen to some One Piece Soundtrack while I was reading. Surprisingly, the music pays off. It gave a better atmosphere and it invigorated me. Another plus is it doesnt fill the panels with unnecessary captions. But it never forgets to show the reaction of each character in the scene. And most of those reactions are just plain humorous. And each character design is likable, as every male boasts their six-packs and every female shows their cleavage. Fairy Tail will not fail to deliver its action packed, slapstick comedy to its readers. If that sounds good to you then dont you even dare to miss out on Fairy Tail.
