Fairy Tail
Volume 1


In the mystical realm of Earth Land, magic exists at the core of everyday life for its inhabitants, from transportation to utilities and everything in between. However, even with all its benefits, magic can also be used for great evil; therefore, to prevent dark forces from upsetting the natural order of things, there exists a system of magical guilds in the Kingdom of Fiore. Under the command of their respective guild masters, these guilds are made up of witches and wizards who take on various job requests to earn fame and fortune. One particular guild stands high above the rest in both strength and spirit, and its name is Fairy Tail.

In his quest to find his dragon foster father—Igneel—Natsu Dragneel, a fiery and reckless mage, and his partner Happy run into a young celestial mage by the name of Lucy Heartfilia, who reveals that it's her dream to become a full-fledged wizard and join the Fairy Tail guild. After rescuing her from an abduction attempt, Natsu offers her a home in Fairy Tail. Now a member of the guild, Lucy teams up with Natsu and befriends fellow wizards Gray Fullbuster and Erza "Titania" Scarlet. Together, this motley crew set out on their many adventures, gaining many faithful allies and deadly foes along the way.

Ahh Fairy Tail probably one of the most over hated series in the manga.

Well enough of that negativity, lets get into Fairy Tail greatness.

First off if your looking for a action packed, fan-service, with great characters & emotion filled moments. I'd say this is your manga to read. Basically a fun positive series to read if your ever in a slump.

Mashima has stated this before and it's pretty much shown through his work, but he lets action speak louder than words. So if you expect to be baby fed certain moments you don't understand, have statements repeated or have the power ...

If you have been immersed in the anime and manga community for around, let’s say a week, then you have at least heard the name Fairy Tail once or twice. One of the most divisive series in the entire medium, Fairy Tail has garnered a massive fan base that defends it to the last man and equally large legion of haters who will fight and die on their desire to see it burn in the fiery pits of hell. This ridiculous conflict between the fans and haters has created an extremely toxic environment surrounding the series, which severely discourages newcomers from even seeing why ...

Do you want to read a manga filled with adventure? With likable characters whose antics make you laugh? With constantly building stakes in a well-established world, and moments that bring tears to your eyes? Want a "little" fanservice to go with it? In that case, may I direct you to One Piece, written by Eiichiro Oda.

In all seriousness, a lot of elements in Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail can be found in One Piece, and a lot of it is done much better in the world of pirates. However, I won't deny that there are reasons to like Fairy Tail.

For one, the first few arcs are ...
