This is one of those reviews for a sequel that I’m almost writing exclusively for fans of the original, since those are inevitably the members of the audience that will get the most out of Fairy Tail (2014). But, in many ways, this sequel doesn’t improve ANYTHING upon many of the aspects that made its predecessor such an average series. This is still the same generic, bland shounen anime, with nothing fascinating and exciting yet full of fanservice in the same fashion. However, with rare exception, the animation is more awful in this season.
The stories in Fairy Tail (2014) takes place immediately where the first part left off, the guild tournament. The problem is that I always feel everything just like filler. As I can recall, the premise of the anime simply consists of finding Igneel, Natsu’s dragon father, but as I watch this we still learn nothing of the dragon. Throughout each episode, no character development is even attempted, and by the end of each arc, there is no progression within the interaction of characters. Whatever romantic elements are tossed into the show feel contrived, and the comedy consists of Natsu who drunks out every time he rides a transportation, and little more. A drama/comedy anime such as this requires both character development and entertaining comedy, and when both are botched so massively, it’s hard to find merit in the series.
As earlier mentioned from my previous review, it’s the character who gives the first indication that this anime truly fails on multiple levels. For those who haven’t read my previous review let me state it once again: Fairy Tail doesn’t have any compelling characters, most of them are loudmouth asshole and painfully obvious. The protagonist Natsu is the perfect generic shounen anime stereotype: hot-headed, generic and extremely stupid. The laziness continues with the villain who also falls into the most generic of anime stereotypes: they are barely mentioned at all, and there isn’t even any information given concerning their background or motive. Their purpose is completely obfuscated, and they leave at the end of each arc without any explanation whatsoever. It’s simply frustrating to see so many plotlines attempted when they all fail miserably – the sheer incompleteness of the anime leaves little room for forgiveness, and by the end of the series none of the major issues are resolved to even a minor extent. As I write this Fairy Tail is still running, but even if it could resolve its convoluted plot in the future, it still wouldn’t make up for the monstrosity that precedes it.
To Fairy Tail’s credit, as always the soundtrack is outstanding, and the animation is reasonably crisp. However, even if the series had phenomenal aesthetics, it simply could not compensate for the painfully horrendous story. With that said, I’ve done enough with this show. Hundred episodes are more than enough to test my patience. What I always get is a dumb and irritating story with no sense of humor, scale or progression of time and no fortitude to stick one or two of its theme or topics and create something solid out of that. I tried very hard to find any positive aspects of this anime except the music – unfortunately, I found none worth mentioning. There’s a lot of great anime out there aside this turd that you can watch except you’re a truly die-hard shounen fans.
After finishing the original Fairy Tail series, I wanted to see the heart-racing action/shounen anime in full glory once again, however, this piece of garbage did not live up to those expectations.
Upon the conclusion of the anime, I went on to read the manga and am currently up to date with the latest chapter. Then I watched the opening of the new Fairy Tail 2014. I had realised something, the WHOLE fucking plot was spoiled in the opening. The fact that you get to see which characters battle one another and the fact that there is a dark silhouette in the shape of a dragon has completely destroyed the potential of story development due to the fact that the plot line has already been told in the op.
I also wanted to mention the distinctive and disgraceful animation in the new season.
In 2 words it would probably described as: Picture Drama.
You know when there is a special or an OVA for a really awesome anime you are reluctant to watch due to the fact that the entire episode is photos frame by frame? Yes, that is what Fairy Tail 2014 has become.
HOWEVER, if the amazing soundtrack combined with the funny sense of humour is something you would enjoy, then I would suggest you watch this for only the comedic moments.
Overall, this has been a massive let-down from the first season and as an avid Fairy Tail fan I would suggest to read the manga instead of wasting your time on the anime. read more
Very high priority in both titles is loyality, trust and naming Nakama, main characters are near to each other. Very important is that, the both are just comedies.
One of non-many differences is that the OP is about pirates and FT is about mages :)
Credit to the user -Karma- for this recommendation!!
Both are shounen anime involving both comedy and action where bonds between nakama are really important.
Shounen? Check. Fantasy? Check. Action? Check. Adventure? Check. Nakama? Check. Drama? Check. Idiot protagonists? Check. Hot women? Check.
One Piece and Fairy Tail are amazing action and adventure anime based in different but spectacular fantasy worlds. Fairy Tail is about various guilds, comprising of wizards and witches, that rely on Magical Power to compete with each other and subsequently complete jobs to make a living. On the other hand, the world of One Piece revolves around pirates and marines who rely on Haki and Devil Fruits.
All in all, you'll observe similar characters in both animes, similar humor, similar back stories, and both of them will give you goosebumps during their action sequence.
both have action, extreme comedy..... And the bond of friendship is emphasized in both.... Both will make your adrenaline rush a must to try both.....
