A seven years of a great journey   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

I followed this manga since 2010 after seeing the 1st episode of its anime in the local TV channel and enjoyed it since then. I have read almost all Hiro Mashima's series and this one is my favorite (even compared to Rave). Even tho the ending was not satisfying after all the moments Lucy and Natsu shared, I still find it to be something good, It's just how Natsu is. I don't think Natsu doesn't understand Lucy's feeling.

Compared to those shounen romance that have many girls interested in the MC or annoying love triangle that gets in the way to enjoy the manga, this one easily becomes stand out and one of my favorites. I really enjoy how Hiro Mashima builds a romantic relationship between two characters (some couples in this manga included obviously). My complaint is too much ecchi moments after dragon arc. But overall, it was a seven years of a great journey.

I thought it was a bit slow pace for me. But the series was enjoyable none the less. The author stated a sequel is on the way and already shows a few of the childs that some of the characters have. But the story was fun. The characters were crazy and charming. Ending was a bit rush in my opinion but it was still fine.

When I start reading this manga, I dont really like it, it is not bad by any mean just average but as time progress I have to say the quality in story telling and art keep getting better and better, and the closing arc really nail all the aspect, the battle is not that great but it was always ended before I get too bored. Props to MASHIMA Hiro this probably the best end I've seen mangaka do in shounen/adventure story. 10 for prrobably the best ending I've seen in shounen manga so far.

Slow pace but fun series. I think people are getting a little bit too harsh on the series itself when there's plenty of other serious that has just about the same pay saying or the same kind of chapters as this one has. So I don't think people should just brush it off something like that but I think it's okay.

One of the most overrated manga ever

I really used to like Fairy Tail when i was a kid, but now, when i read it...i see nothing more than a childish, boring, and nonsense product. That's it, a product for young boys and girls (especially for this one) with a lot of forced fancervice and cheap drama.
The battle are, by far, the most ridiculous i've ever seen: power up + nakama power EVERY fucking time and victory for Fairy Tail.
This manga is pissing me off, i'm sad to think Mashina gives to the fans what they want just to make money and don't care to give us a real story to enjoy.

How to drop a manga after 510 chapters... Or should I said "How to beat Bleach's bad ending?"

510 chapters for that?

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Zeref and Marvis's son?
Village of Dragonslayers and more non sense flashblack, doing more and more a ruined plot?
Fairy Tail have a plot yet?
After every 5 chapters we need to see Lucy's boobs?

You call this your best work?
You did it, you destroyed your series, just because of $$$, we get a forced continued plot and non sense fan service.
Rave was better than that, I can't read anymore...
I gonna wait and skip for the final chapter, when finally come if you let the story ends someday...


Finally ended.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
What the hell of ending is that?!
We got no couples, no deads and everthings looks like before the "plot"?
I tried to read the gap between 510 and 545, but that not helped, was more and more nonsense.
Rave was better.
Bleach's ending was better than that.
Zeref, I understand you now, please come back and reset this world.

"Please $uport Hiro Mashima in futures projects?"
No, please pick all the money you got(if are not for money, you are nuts) and go play Monster Hunter for the rest of your life.

wrong pentagram for air in anime   
Rating: N/A

Did anyone notice that Levy used the pentagram for earth instead of air, when invoking magical air for Gajeel in episode 80? Also, it was a banishing pentagram instead of invoking pentagram. They should have shown an invoking air pentagram or banished the water.

That is such an easy thing to look up if you don't know what you're doing and so many people understand these things. What were the animators thinking?

Good, for a shonen

Fairy Tail is about the adventures of Natsu Dragneel, a fire magician who use some ancient magic called Dragon Slayer, and his comrades in a magic guild called Fairy Tail. Teaming up with Lucy, Erza, Gray, and his flying cat Happy, they make what is called as one of the strongest team in the guild. Actually the guild has more characters than those 5 but they are the ones who get into the spotlight the most.

I used to think that FT was comparable to One Piece (man, how I was so wrong), but as it drags on, it's become clear that FT is never close to OP's standard. OP is meant to be a long story, it's very detailed and well-prepared. FT is more like a typical shonen series, where the opponents just show up one after another. That is why there's no death on FT, nor major char development, as they were not intended to exist on the first place. I will still say that Mashima did good job drawing stunning background set from one arc to another but that's the only part where it's close to OP's quality.

Anyway, I still think it's quite good, as a light read. The art is good, and it's fun to read at times. The fan service has been part of Mashima's work so if you decide to pick it up, be prepared. Also you can't hope much for a power balance in FT, as the guild is always come out top. The fights are not tricky, the protagonists simply gain immense power when they think about their comrades during fights. I don't have to recommend it, look at the number of the people who read it and read some comments about the series, then you decide whether to pick this up or not.
