Fairy Tail Manga Discussion Thread

Before you say anything, I did NOT mess up that title.

Did anyone read this yet? Well, I suppose few have, since the first chapter is due out in Japan in next week's (or was it this week's?) Shounen Magazine. The mangaka is Mashima Hiro. Anyway, I read through it, and I must say I liked it. I didn't stop to translate every word I didn't understand but I think I understood most of the plot.

Anyway, it's your typical shounen manga. The setting is some kind of medieval fantasy world, though not without some modern luxuries. Naruto has ninjas, One Piece has pirates, Bleach has shinigamis, so what does Fairy Tail have? Sorcerers. The plot seems to revolve around sorcerers, and the guilds they make up. Fairy Tail is one such guild.

The main characters introduced in the first chapter are Natsu, who seems to have an affinity for travel sickness, his companion Happy, the cat and the girl Lucy, who really really wants to join Fairy Tail. Here's a quick, probably partly inacurate, synopsis of the first chapter:
Spoiler:


I liked the setting, the characters, the humor and the art, and I really loved the title, I wonder if it was intentional...

Sample the art, why don't you:

Hehehe...

This was a nice surprise.

The new project of the mangaka of Rave Master XD

Hehehe... While one is reading this, you WILL realize that there's a lot of commonalities between it, Rave Master and One Piece XD Hehehe...

I really liked the first chapter. Maybe I'll talk to my scan group if whether we might take it up :P XD If anyone is willing to *cough* translate, PM me :P

Please do. I would offer my assistance translating, but I'm not really fluent enough, so I'd most likely be slow and make plenty of mistakes. I hope you find a translater though, it looks quite promising, I usually don't get this feeling after just one chapter. I haven't read Rave Master, but I certainly agree that it is very similar to One Piece, especially in setting and art.

Yup, I like it too, and it should be liked by most One(Magic)Piece fans
They look alike, and they fight as cool....

And here I thought I was the only one who noticed the similarities between the two heros

Seriously though, when I first saw Fairy Tail I thought this was a manga done by Oda-sensei until I saw the giant letters "Hiro Mashima Returns."

Overall, I really liked the first chapter, it was very well done even though I couldn't understand a lick of it, it still grabbed my attention...... mainly cause he looks like freakin Luffy!!! I couldn't resist!!!

By the way, I think that square chin guy was about to brand the girl or something, maybe to show that she's his property now, I hope someone translates soon, please!!!

Also did anyone else notice that on page 3, the girl behind the blue hair guy resembles Robin greatly. Not that that's a bad thing cause Robin's freakin hawt!!!

I found in a site that Mashima Hiro did touch up work on Oda's One Piece. I think that's mainly the reason why there are similarities between the two.

Why do you say 2 heros.
Just as you said - Ulteia is Robin-chan
Lucy is the prototype of Nami in the one-shot manga for one-piece
If you look closer you can find more.
However - that's even better for me. I love cross-dimension animeS /(manga) ^__^

EDIT: i did .. ermm.... the names and the heros.. on small images >_>

Spoiler for heros names:

I find it sort of interesting that his old main character was named Haru (spring) and the new one's named Natsu (summer). Probably a little pun for no reason or something.

Edit: Both names are in katakana, not kanji, so they don't necessarily mean the seasons, but Mashima Hiro revealed in some volume notes that Haru's name was meant to be "spring" with a foreign feeling to it, so...

I very much enjoyed the 2nd chapter as well! A pretty unusual route to introduce the entire secondary cast so soon isn't it? And a very interesting cast at that, I believe I enjoyed Grey the most, at least from a comical perspective. Though watching this whole world through the eyes of the unsuspecting Lucy is one of the manga's big charms right now. (Pun intended. )

Anyone still reading this? I just brushed through the third chapter last night, and it was quite funny, though it's still a bit hard to see where the story might be going. Of course, as always in a shounen manga, the first few chapters could be seen as introductory. Go Tauros! Mooo!

Haha, having read the fourth chapter, this manga really cracks me up. I really think Mashima Hiro hit the target spot on so far (for a shounen), judging from my own tastes. Well after four chapters, it's very promising at least.
