The curse of a long running shounen.   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

This series like many of it's brethren start of interesting (because it's new obviously) and evolves into something either really bad and get's cancelled or really good thus continued. If the latter happens then without a doubt the quality of it will gradually and steadily diminish the longer the series continues (Bleach is the no.1 case in my view.) There is only so much the mangaka can do before resorting to the shounen trade standard of dragging fights over longer and longer time periods; boring fillers and recycled situations.

Fairy tail started of very enjoyable but now it's dragging on. The poor guild never seem to catch a break, always suffering devastating blows from the bad guys of the arc. Yes I know that this is the bread and butter of shounen, I guess I've become jaded of seeing endless suffering of the "good guys" who never seem to get a happy ending. It's an endless cycle of protagonists getting injured physically and emotionally, eventually getting the upper hand (after a painstakingly long time of the baddies having their way and gloating like the a**holes they are), victory at a heavy price, brief (VERY brief) moment of rest before a new group of bad guys appear to start the whoooole cycle again.

I wish there are more manga of the same golden-standard quality of Fullmetal Alchemist. Gems like them are hard to come by.

I read abt 40 chapters of RAVE n hated it (no offence 2 those who like it, but it wuz too childish 4 me) b4 picking this up so I didn't have much expectations despite the High Rating

But I wuz hooked from ch.1 ! hahaha
Its amazing, awesome characters(very lovable), great action, fantasy etc lots of LOL parts and it really had me chuckling most times biggrin
Its also very WELL PACED. Each adventure they have could be used as a story for different manga's, so you can read it without getting bored.
I finished reading 355 chapters in like 4 nights!
Basically there's a lil bit for everyone 2 enjoy no matter what manga genre they like

N it very nonchalantly stresses d importance of friendship...keeps it fun n light & gives a warm fuzzy feeling smile
A definite MUST READ! (^^)

Overrated and Disappointing   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0
by Fantasier

It's very disappointing to see this manga coming from the author of, and is released after Rave. Rave is far, far better than Fairy Tail. Here is why:

Fairy Tail begins quite well. It has some good settings and based plots. Guilds, wizards, dragon slayers (trained by dragons themselves!), mysteries of characters' origins, fantasy world, etc. At first it seems interesting, then it turns out to be nothing. It ends up being boring and repetitive--rather monotonous. Mysteries are solved quite retardedly and all. Dramas are not really emotionally good enough.

There is no really 'big villain' (well, at least up to the point where I dropped), nor is there a 'main plot' as someone already pointed out. Things go just one after another. Predictable, or 'mainstream' stuffs await everywhere. It's like covering 'generic' with paint, but eventually failing at doing so. No fresh ideas. Nothing really unique stands out. Quite random.

If you want to just read good guys fighting bad guys with supernatural power and just about everything you can see in any Shounen, read it. Else you can still pick an OK piece from the author--Rave.

Lighthearted, fun, shounen fluff aimed at 11 - 14 year old boys.
If you're looking for character development, SERIOUS BUSINESS, grimdark and plot rather than PLOT, go look elsewhere, this isn't the manga for you. However if your looking for fun, an occasional chuckle, titillation and adventure, give it a chance.

too many ass pulls   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

Instead of thinking of clever ways for a protagonist to prevail in a clinch, the author decides to use ass pulls. The theme of "friendship = power" is used horribly in Fairy Tail. Also, STOP trying to distract us with fanservice and tits, it really pulls away from the story. This is okay for a light read, but if you're looking for a deeper story, I suggest you read something else.

Hilarious Manga

I give this manga a 6 for its comedy and Happy is so cute and funny!

There is no plot or maybe there has been hints of a background story, but the author failed to develop it. Rather, a new villain appears in each arc and the main characters power up and defeat all evil for the sake of their nakama...which gets old really fast. Also, the characters have the same powers from beginning to current chapters. So, even the action isn't that exciting. I'm still following the manga from time to time, but if you're looking for a really good storyline along with action and character development, then I suggest you look elsewhere. Fairy Tail should mainly be read for its comedy because without it, there would be nothing else to read about.

Fairy Tail is fun and light hearted fluff. The characters are quiet likeable. Lucy is lovable, Natsu is Natsu and the Happy is a laugh. Only annoying character from the lot is that bitchy white cat, Carla.

Enjoy it for a fun, light read with ever decreasing story depth as the serious continues.

I really don't understand why everyone loves this so much. To me it was like a very typical shounen manga and thats probably what I hate about it. It has a very very strong male lead, who always power up and who doesn't seem beaten by anything or anyone... gahh. Natsu just doesn't seem to mature, he's same person from the beginning to the most recent chapter. In general- there is absolutely NO CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT! I liked this in the beginning, but now it just feels like its becomming repetitive- new archs are being added but in general the characters don't improve. I like stories where I can get know the characters better- but in Fairy Tail- all of them simply just don't seem human. They're plastic and have no finite limits sad

Waiting for it to all come out...

Not gonna lie, I love Fairy Tail - despite the unnecessary fanservice or the drawn out plot. However, Fairy Tail is more on the light-reads sides than the on-the-edge-of-your-seat side. It doesn't draw me in plot-wise. The characters are hilarious, but there's no development.

Currently, I'm waiting for it to just all come out instead of reading it and waiting for the next chapter. Yep, I'm pretty burnt out on Fairy Tail. Don't get me wrong, though, the ships are fantastic.

Funny, Artistic, and Typical   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

Fairy Tail is my favorite because it's the first manga I have read, but it really is a very typical fighting shounen. I like that the fights don't last too long, and the humor is great -- one of the reasons I got so hooked. I also like the mostly lack of training arcs. The heros/heroines get stronger by random and trolling means.

There's enough fanservice for it to be ecchi, which I personally don't like, but I absolutely love the art style. Mashima is an excellent artist.

So if you like mainstream shounen with random power-ups, friendship speeches, a hot-headed hero, and the like, then I suggest Fairy Tail. If you're looking for something unique, then this probably isn't the best.

edit: not even my favorite anymore. Nothing has been solved (dragons, Zeref, etc), and it's 90% boobs and butts. No good.
