    Fairy Tail

    X

    Alternative title:
    フェアリーテイル (Japanese)

    Genres: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Supernatural

    In the world of magic, there are associations called guilds in which people of varying magical abilities unite to strengthen themselves as well as for other purposes. This story tells of a young fire mage named Natsu, who's current purpose is to find his parent, Igneel, who happens to be a dragon. He belongs to a guild called Fairy Tail, who in the world of mages are renowned for being quite the trouble.

    While there are guilds who follow the strict rules of conduct, there are those who stray from this path and become dark guilds which are not sanctioned.

    Guilds strive by offering their services in return for payment. Usually, jobs taken by Fairy Tail often leads to chaos, due to its members' rambunctious behavior and often pushes its members to their limits. Accompanied by the newest mage, Lucy Heartfilia, and longtime friends Erza Scarlet, Gray Fullbuster, and Happy, Fairy Tail is nothing short of an adventure worth getting into.

    I really liked the panels when he got serious, especially his expressions on the 'I'm Natsu from fairytale' and 'fuuu, thanks for the food'

    really looking forward to seeing how this progresses.

    Natsu looks exactly like Luffy and Ichigo.

    Lucy looks like Nami.

    But it was good, can't wait to read more of it scanlated. :nod

    Yeah, I liked it from the get-go. Style reminds me of One Piece (never read much of Rave).

    I plan to follow it. :amuse

    I saw someone on MH talking about working on a LQ scan of it (for anyone wanting raw #2 there's d/l links in the o.p. but please keep discussion under tags)

    that brings up something I'd like to know, how similar was Rave's art style to FairyTail's?

    also I wonder if there's any signigicance in it being called Fairytail rather than fairytale, or whether thats just bad engrish...

    Maybe, that the main character was trained by a dragon, they used tail which symbolizes the dragon and the main characters ability with fire.

    Overall, its a decent manga. I'll defintely read more of it.

    I was wondering the same thing, so I took a quick look. The two are very similar, of course, but Fairy Tail feels like it has even more OP influence than Rave.

    I dled the raw when I saw it a week ago. Looked intresting, it reminded me of One Piece a bit as so many others have already said... luckily someone's scanslating it. I'm wondeirng how it'll develop though, hopefully it's more creative than cliche.

    I'm glad people are liking this series :)

    It is most likely intentional, like how Hokage Naruto explained. Also, the author Mashima Hiro did a one shot called Fairy Tale, which had a totally different story line from Fairy Tail. ... Just a note ;)


    By the way, the one linked on the first post here is a bad version, and we have version 2 now. I hope you guys will bother to come to IRC to redownload the correct chapter :) ... Or wait until ch2 comes out from us; that's when we will put up a http link for ch1 ver2 (though it still contains some minor mistakes -__-).

    Does anyone know if the first few chapters are going to be 70+ pages or is every chapter going to be over 70+ pages? If every chapter is 70+ pages, its going to be worse than 666 Satan releases.

    Thanks Yachiru:nod

    I'm guessing it's starting like how every manga starts, with a very big 1st chapter.

    Chapter 1 -> 80 pages
    Chapter 2 -> 50 pages
    Chapter 3 -> 30 pages

    and I assume after that, they'll just be 20 pages
    Hiro Mashima had 1 year to prepare for this, so I assume Kodansha and himself really wanted to start this off with a bang.

    Ch1: 80 pages
    Ch2: 50 pages
    Ch3: 30 pages

    After that, I'm assuming it'll back to a normal (about) 20 page chapter.

    Wow, FairyTail has its own thread already? :spaz Rave is one of my all-time favourites so I'm really looking forward to this new series by Hiro Mashima-sensei.

    Very similar. You can see for yourself.

    I think I know why the art styles are so similar, I;ve heard (can't remember were) that Mashima Hiro and OP's author has the same sensei when they were in training. So my guess is that's why thier art styles and stories are pretty similar.

    ^ Oh, they had the same sensei? That would make sense then as to why their styles are similar. It's like the Kishimoto brothers.

    Well Oda was one of Nobuhiro Watsuki's assistants while he was working on Rurouni Kenshin. He along with the Shaman King mangaka, and another one. BUt I don't think it was Mashima. If you mean sensei in that manner.

    Oda worked for Kaitani Shinobu (Sommelier), Tokuhiro Masaya (Shape Up Ran, Jangle no Ouja Taa-chan), and Watsuki Nobuhiro (Rurouni Kenshin, Busou Renkin) as their assistant.

    Watsuki's assistants are: Oda Eiichiro, Takei Hiroyuki, Suzuki Shinya, Shingagin, Itoh Mikio, and Yamada Kazushige.

    So far I don't see any teacher/student/assistant/etc relationships between Oda and Mashima :(

    Touch up on Oda's work = Rave.

    Just read the first chapter. Pretty fun. It'll be hard to get rid of the whole "Omg it's just like One Piece" vibe, though. The expressions and even some of the characters look very similar. I'll wait and see until Natsu develops his own own personality, but it kinda just screams "Luffy" for now.
