*Fairy Tail* takes place in a world that is a sort of schizo version of ours. It has a folks dressing in fashions from many different eras, trains exist, and other things so far that seem to place this at no specific era, but a purely fun, fantasy world.
In this world we have our hero and heroine. Well, our <i>main</i> hero and heroine, as this manga starts with loads of characters, and I hear it just adds more and more from there. Anyways, introduced in the first volume, we have our main hero Natsu and main heroine Lucy.
In the first volume they met when Natsu saved Lucy and inducted her into the guild of which he is a member, "Fairy Tail". Obviously, this is the reason of the manga's title. It is cool for Lucy because this is the guild she has dreamed of being accepted into for some time. They had a few adventures which continue on into this second volume, basically two short, but rather simple, story arcs.
About midway through this volume is where the first truly serious arc appears to be starting. Erza, the most powerful member of Fairy Tail, whom everyone fears, come asking for help. She is onto a case of a "dark guild" that is out to cause serious trouble, though she doesn't know what that trouble would be yet. A "dark guild" is a guild that refuses to obey the laws by doing numerous evil activities including assassination. Because of this, they are banned and declared illegal.
Lucy is eventually roped into this to help mediate on the mission between Natsu and another wizard he fights with a lot, named Gray, both of whom were chosen by Erza for the mission.
This manga so far is quite interesting. Some might dislike the fanservice, as the mangaka gives a lot of glimpses of the attractive garb of the characters. but then again, he also does the uber-muscular guys showing off pecs, so it is kinda fair in that department.
I hear that some think he goes too far in the future chapters/volumes with this, but we'll see. In general, I like the world-building, the magic systems he comes up with for characters, as well as the characters themselves. Erza, Natsu and Lucy are a hoot. And Happy, the talking-cat is funny in his interactions with Lucy. The author, humorously, admits how tough it is to come up with the magic systems, but he seems to do a good job of it. And this makes the manga a lot of fun and a compelling tale.
Rating: 5/5 Stars.
Includes 9 chapter (#5 to #13)
"Daybreak" / "Invade!! The Everlue Mansion" / "The Wizard's Weakness" / "Lucy vs. Duke Everlue"
"Dear Kaby" / "The Armored Wizard" / "Natsu on the Train" /"Spell Song" / "Death Laughs Twice"
49 volumes ago...this was a very good rising manga. Very touching moments of Lucy's backstory. We see the main females characters fighting for the first time.
Worth reading? If you like the 1st volume, yes. It is an over the top manga with long spell names like "Roaring Dragon Thunder Flame Heavenly Sword of Life" so if you like that kind of things, and wizards and dragons. Yes, it is good.
PARENTS Be warned: Lot's of fan service! ^_~
Contains Chapters 6-13,the origin of character names, and early designs for the Fairy Tail symbol.
While I don't particularly love the Everlue storyline, Volume 2 introduces several major characters/characters that would go on to be major. Still an enjoyable Shonen action series.
My favorite characters, all together. YES! FINALLY! We finally get to see more of Grey, we meet a super strong member of Fairy Tail, and we get to learn a little more about this particular "wizarding world". All signs point to " take my money*.
PS: Why is Lucy so vain? Hahaha 😂
I particularly enjoyed the scene when they discover Deliora: Natsu stomps on the ground while Gray and Lucy mention about the age of the ruins, there Gray's expression its totally hilarious and priceless.
