Product Description

In the Kingdom of Fiore, powerful wizards make their living by joining magical guilds and contracting out their services to become "wizards for hire". Harnessing the forces of Dragon Fire, Ice, Weaponry, and the Zodiac, four young wizards of the infamous guild Fairy Tail team up to seek their fortunes. Growing stronger with every mission, they travel the countryside helping people and battling rival guilds, but with personalities as different as their magic skills, this team may end up doing more damage than good.

Amazon.com

Based on the manga by Hiro Mashima, the comedy-adventure Fairy Tale (2009) ran for 111 episodes in Japan, and it's easy to understand why: the series has a freewheeling nuttiness that plays like an irreverent mash-up of Slayers, Bleach, and One Piece. Lucy, a young celestial wizard, arrives in the city of Magnolia, hoping to join a sorcerer's guild. She stumbles into the headquarters of the eccentric Fairy Tale guild, and quickly forms a team with three of its zaniest members. Rough-and-tumble Natsu is a powerful fire wizard; he travels with his blue talking cat, Happy. However, Natsu gets violent motion sickness on trains, boats, carriages, and every other conveyance, which undercuts his effectiveness. Gary is an equally strong ice wizard, but he keeps losing his clothes and has to fight enemies in his boxers. Erza's transformative magic awes Lucy, but the hot-tempered redhead is no saner than the others. The improbable quartet tackles various assignments, battling demons and evil wizards. They invariably come out on top, but wreak havoc on their surroundings--which lands them in trouble with the Council of Elders. In a four-part adventure (episodes 5 to 8), they destroy a cursed flute whose melodies kill everyone within earshot. But they blow up a railway station, level a trestle bridge, and flatten an entire village in the process. Although many anime series have offered similar blends of slapstick and supernatural derring-do, director Shinji Ishihara and his crew keep the material fresh and funny. Voice actors Todd Haberkorn (Natsu) and Newton Pittman (Gary) bring a lively edge to their feuding friendship, and Cherami Leigh (Lucy) avoids the clichés of the ingénue role. Fairy Tale spawned an OAV in 2011, and a theatrical feature is slated for 2012. (Rated TV 14: cartoon violence, minor risqué humor, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars And over 100 episodes later... October 17, 2011
By NC
Format:Blu-ray
We finally get a US release. /facepalm @ US publishers for taking so long, but moving on with the review...

Fairy Tail has been a hit series for a reason. That is, well, its just great content. Good action, nice stories, and fantastic characters. But of course, so is Naruto and Bleach/etc. However, unlike those, Fairy Tail is not riddled full of filler. For those that have been keeping up with other popular shows like Naruto, you'll know the inevitable dread that filler brings. Either poorly written or completely disjointed stories that serve no purpose but to buy time till the artists finalize the next story arc.

Now, one cannot say this series is without filler. But here is the big difference, the Fairy Tail filler is actually capable of being part of the main plot. Then also you'll see them refer to the episodes later. If you notice filler in shows like Naruto, they never are part of the main plot or are linked later. This has caused a sour taste to grow in the mouths of viewers whenever they come to the end of an arc, knowing they have to put up with months of filler next. With Fairy Tail, after watching over 100 episodes now, I honestly can say I was disappointed in maybe a half dozen of them. But they still added something to the story.

The rest of the time when watching this show, you are pleasantly moving from one arc to the next, which doesn't take long. There is a lot of comedy and slapstick antics in some episodes, while others brings in a tone of seriousness and drama that may even bring a tear to some eyes. Fairy Tail does this and it does not seem out of character when it does. Neither is it a roller coaster ride of dizzying highs and lows.

It is true that some of the story arcs are better than others.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Love. November 17, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I love this series. I'm a long-time anime fan, and yet this show managed to become my absolute favorite, not just one of my favorites, in a very short time. I hate that it's taken so long to get a US release, but eh.

Since lots of other people have told at length what makes the series great (awesome characters, engaging, moving plot, some great humor), I'm going to keep mine on the dubbing. The Japanese language casting for this series is spot on, so it was hard for me to get used to the English dub at first, but I have to admit it has grown on me. While I wouldn't choose to watch it in English if I had the Japanese available, it certainly won't kill you. Some of the voices lack a bit in enthusiasm, but they did a good job overall of matching the original. The only things that gets me is the way they say Erza's name in the English version. Err-za. Wrong, *twitch twitch*.

That aside, it is definitely watchable, and if you really have an issue with the dub, they handily included the original Japanese too. If you are a fan, get this now. If you haven't seen it and are curious, get this now. Fairy Tail is one of the best recent anime series to drop and has a little something for everyone. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series November 26, 2011
By Atego
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've watched this on crunchyroll since it was first released and it is one of my more favorite shows that are currently airing right now. This English dub doesn't surprise me as it's well translated and the casting wasn't too bad either. Funimation is definitely the brand of Anime that I like. Still, this serious is a mixture of hilarity and randomness topped off with a very serious story. This series is by far one of my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved! November 24, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was initially very please just because Funimation provided it as a Blu Ray/DVD combo pack, Fairy Tail is my favorite anime by leaps and bounds. In a general sense the more you watch the anime the the animations get, compared these first twelve episodes the animation in the later 50 is outstanding, saying that it is still well done.

This DVD covers the first twelve episodes of the series and I felt the voices they picked for the dub were excellent. I am going to say really get out there and buy these first four parts, so Funimation will pick up the rest of the episodes actually from the source!

As far as packaging, it has a cover sleeve then a standard size Blu Ray case. It includes two discs for both the Blu Ray and DVD. As far as extras, it includes commentary on Episodes 1 and 9, the two openings and two closings so far without any text over it, and the brief trailers they had before each disc.

Episode 1 - The Fairy Tail - Commentary is the Episode/Casting Director (Tyler Walker), Natsu (Todd Haberkorn), Happy (Tia Ballard), and Lucy (Cherami Leigh)

Episode 9 - Natsu Devours a Village- Commentary is the Episode/Casting Director (Tyler Walker), Natsu (Todd Haberkorn), Erza (Colleen Clinkenbeard), Lucy (Cherami Leigh), and Happy (Tia Ballard)

What can I say, this is hands down one of the most purly fun to watch long runnong shonen to come out in a LOOOONG TIME! The concept in and of itself was enough to draw me in, a long running series about Wizard Guilds! WHY WASN'T THIS DONE SOONER! LOL.

Anywho as for the series

The story. The series takes place in the land of Fiore, where Wizards and Guilds are common place, the world itself is a mixture of modern and medival. The series follows the Adventures of Lucy, Natsu, Erza, and Gray one of the strongest teams of the Fairy Tail guild. The story arcs are fairly well paced not being to short or too dragged out. So far story arcs have lasted about 5-8 episodes, which may sound rushed to some, but it actually works in the shows favor, the show progresses at an energetic pace which fits such an energetic show.

The Characters: Fairy Tails characters are a fairly interesting cast. While all based off of etablished shonen tropes they don't come off overly cliche or annoying as characters simmilar to them in other series do. Lucy while abit annoying is an interesting female lead and compliments the male lead Natsu well. Natsu is well..I would describe him as a smart Luffy, like luffy or kid Gouku he's energetic and abit naive at times, but he's not nearly as idiotic as those two come off at times. Erza is A Red Headed Bombshell in armor and Fairy Tail's strongest female warrior! (and my personal favorite) however despite her tuff exterior she's a kind hearted and loyal member of Fairy Tail. Gray is an Ice Wizard and Natsu's best frienemy, despite being used alot for comic relief (due to his odd habbit to strip) he's a well roundend and compitent part of the team.

Cant wait
The show isn't set by seasons but by volumes, in Japan it's somewhere at Volume 20 (Episodes 077-080) already.

So, Parts is more truthful to Volumes than "Seasons".
