Chapter 5 is out! =)

Poor.. Lucy getting rejected, Though I like how she said it "Its Not that, It's just that his Sense of Beauty is kinda Retarded!!" This chapter sets things for a encounter next time and I Guess we will also find out who the two guys in the Shadow are.

The manga is Interesting so far. Dont know what they will do with the story but so far the short adventures are Great! Never wached/Read One Piece though seen pictures around and its similar.

Anybody still reading this? It's gotten up to chapter 20 and it's starting to get really good. Some of Erza and Gray's magic has been revealed as well as more of Natsu's.

I think I'm up to 19, and while it's enjoyable, it's hard to get a feel for the actual storyline... What's driving the characters? Right now it feels like it's just one mini adventure after another...

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."

The reason that OP and Fairy Tail art style are similar was because. Hiro Mashima and One Piece's Oda both work as assistants under another mangaka, I can't remeber who, but he in turn used to be Akira Toriyama's assistant. Which explains similar styles. And someone already noted that Hiro also helped out Oda with OP back in it's early chapters. But to be fair, both artists come to their own around the sames time as RAVE and OP both serialize around the same time except OP turns out to be a world-wide mega-hit and is breaking records left and right while RAVE is only a very popular series that really didn't make it over beyond Asian boarder......

There really isn't a main storyline YET, so far concept is simple, It is a story about a Socerors' Guild, and that is what you do in a guild; you hang around with other members, look for a posted job, goes and do the jobs, than collects you money. I personally think this is one the the charm of the series.

Besides there isn't even a villian in the series yet with exeception of the Darkness Guild that Ersa was working on.

SayanMk's spoiler is mis-leading, so far Jiikurein and Ulteia are only revealed as part of the Soceror's Council that hadles all inter-guild affairs. In fact, the council was going to punish Fairy Tail guild for their careless-mistakes but Jiikurein put in good words for them that stating that while FT is a wild bunch, they are also a group with many talented sorcerors in the first chapter.

It's a rather general way to start up a series that's meant to run for a long time... i mean, it's really not any different than the begining of Bleach which was, with ichigo just hunting one hollow after another... These early chapters and adventures are just to gives the readers the raw character backgrounds... we learn about the major players, their abilities, their personalities and all that... It's all just a warm up for the major storyline to come

Man... I was really fooled by the name of this manga. I thought it was shoujo type manga or something like that. Never knew it was from the autor of Rave.

Yeah, the series doesn't seem to have much of a plot (yet) to begin with, so I fail to see the holes as well. Oh well, at least we found out a little about Grey.

Currently up to chapter 25, and I have to say I like it. Good characters and story, though it's not really plot driven but it's still enjoyable. Natsu is hilarious, I like his relationship with Erza's best.

However, I just couldn't let these out of my head:

- Natsu - Luffy
- Gray - Zorro
- Loki - Sanji
- Lucy - Nami
- Erza/ the black haired girl - Robin
- Happy - Chopper
- etc,

I mean, when I see Natsu and his attitude, basically I saw Luffy.......

Awesome series nonetheless though.

Does the scanslation still use 'Erza'? Her name is right there in the manga as Elsa (can be seen at the betting station when she's about to fight Natsu).

Erza Scarlet sounds better :P
edit:
and Mashima first spelled it as "Erza". (when Mirajane writes her name with the magic pen)
So it's anyone's guess which is the correct spelling since even the mangaka can't be consistent.

Really? Sure, a mangaka can be inconsistent, but that's quite a huge mistake to write a name differently in the span of only a few chapters... Do you know what chapter it was?
