Lucy is a 17-year-old girl, who wants to be a full-fledged mage. One day when visiting Harujion Town, she meets Natsu, a young man who gets sick easily by any type of transportation. But Natsu isnt just any ordinary kid, he's a member of one of the world's most (in)famous mage guilds: Fairy Tail.
FairyTail is one of the Anime that I really enjoy. I love the character development that you see progressing throughout the show, and i also love how it doesnt seem so OP. Characters have their flaws, their limits, their weaknesses. And the anime and manga stay true to it. Fairy Tail also sticks very closely by the manga, something I love a lot. I can pick up from the manga where the anime stops for hiatus.
With other animes like Naturo and Bleach I lost interest very fast because they seemed to have too much over powered characters with no weaknesses!
I pretty much started watching fairy tail because I currently have nothing else to watch since I have to wait weekly for one piece. It\'s also ranked in the top 3 on most manga sites, and everyone kept going on and on about how awesome it is. I mean it is alright, and I laughed a bit while watching the first 30 episodes or so (I only got to episode 63). But the jokes are seriously clichéd (realized this when jokes were continuously repeated) and the POWER OF FRIENDSHIP thing is seriously overrated....... SERIOUSLY!!!! -_-I mean they had scenes where someone would run out of power and because of their friends support they magically gain superhuman powers and defeat the bad guy after screaming out \"FOR THE GUILD!\" or \" I WONT LET YOU HURT...!\" yes, I do know that those scenes can b found in almost if not all shounen anime, but FT takes it to a whole OTHER LEVEL!!!
I might give the manga a try, but as for the anime.....idk how much further I\'m willing to go v.v...
Its cool...but not totally hype worthy
To the guys before me...Natsu is to be considered the main focus of the story, everyone else guild members or not are just large part side characters...and the gimmicky fighting that you would attribute to fights like bleach or naruto or even khr can very much be found in Fairy Tail...now I for one find fairy tail to be slightly (take that with a grain of salt people) childish in its fighting formula...(encounter baddy, fight, lose...or losing, flashback, scream about friendship,sudden inconcievable powerup, win). But the again this formulae has been used by pratically any and every shounen mangaka and anime team out looking to create a shouneny fight scene. Cant really rag on FT just cause it falls into the same rut as other shounens. But what some people (me included) do find a little over the top is the exceptional focus on that FRIENDSHIP POWER...there is an explanation out there that their magic power comes from feelings which does give some context to the focus on FRIENDSHIP POWER (please say this in a deep spacey announcer voice...I know I am). It just does get a little childish tho excusable or not.
