I'm NOT a fan of the Fairy Tail series.
In fact it's the only series I've tried to stay away from simply because in my opinion Natsu is a boring character that doesn't capture the right feeling for a series like Fairy Tail.
On the other hand Mavis does!
I read Chapter 1 like months ago just because my friend said it was worth it.
MY GOD HE WAS RIGHT!
Mavis is such an incredible character!
Her terrible story is beautifully written and the twist ending adds and develops her amazing character.
Sure if I was an active fan of FT I would have exploded from this series since it explained and
showed the start of the Fairy Tail guild and it even involved Zeref somewhere.
I love Zeref's character, he's super badass and he has a soft and sweet side to himself, wanna know which over antagonist is like that?
Itachi Uchiha from the Naruto series!
I think that's why Zeref's character stood out so much to me.
Which is most likely why I dislike Natsu so much, he's pretty similar to Sasuke.
It doesn't help that I've seen Natsu having fire powers as well XD
The only this I disliked about this manga series was that is was too short.
I read the wikia and know that Mavis appears in the FT series at certain points.
I strongly suggest fans of this manga to check out any chapters of FT with Mavis in them because those specific chapters are really good!
