Please don't make it into 51 episodes of shit.


Considering mangaka chose the studio herself(after refusing a lot of offers from other studios), I am hoping that they won't mess it up.


omg i certainly hope so cuz if it's gonna crapped up like inuyasha. dat crap got me so mad after 167 episodes they STILL didn't give me a proper ending only sayin they shall continue slayin stupid demons and fightin naroku.

Users have been complaining that the series is too wacky and kiddie compared to the anime. While I do believe that is true to some degree, I also think it is still an enjoyable series.

I would just like to shine some light on something, I don't know if anyone's mentioned it, but... Fairy Tail? The tail of a fairy? If it's a deliberate attempt at being funny it's not a very good joke, if it's the manga creators bad english skills then it is immensly funny, especially since the producers of the anime has to call it fairy tail even if they know it's wrong.

I don't really have an opinion on this anime, but to the haters of the art and animations; this is much better than Bleach and early Naruto Shippuuden.

lol are you kidding me? better than bleach and naruto? this anime? no freaking way.

btw i'm not a fan of those 2 either but just give my opinion.



Shippuden's quality isnt all that bad... i agree about bleach lately it sucks like hell
but anyways i dont rly want to say anything coz i only read 2 chapters of fairy tail but it seems rly cliché to me there are way better series out there to be animated ......

Pretty much anything is better than Bleach and Naruto. Especially if it's Shippuden. Fucking horrible quality.

The art and animation? Yes, Bleach's art and animations are worse now than when they started 4+ years ago, Naruto is picking it up, but they have too many still frame shifts for my liking, this fairy tail thing actually has decent animations apart from the hideous special effects when throwing their magic attacks.

Go watch TaleSpin.

If you haven't noticed already it's a pun on the word(s) "fairy tale", the same way as with TaleSpin.

*sigh* So much for high expectations.

This season altogether has been a pretty big disappointment.

^true
i had huge expectations for this
the animation was disappointing, i mean the manga was a success i didnt think they'd cutback on the animation

bad move on their part, this could've easily been on par with Bleach, One Piece, Naruto on the Shounen genre
