I have watched the anime and I think I have read some of the manga. Fairy tail is definitely one of my most favorite animes. Sadly,because of school, I have not caught up on the anime but I'll probably try to catch up this summer.

Fairy Tail was one of the first animes I watched, and I think it was the first shounen. I basically went through middle school watching this, but I have to admit the fan service of this anime kind of turns me off.

Nice to see a fellow Fairy Tail anime fan! Sadly I haven't gotten in to the manga it's quite a feat to read threw but most likely worth it. On another note I can greatly appreciate the anime adaptation and to the dismay of many. My favorite character is Lucy she comes off as really normal to me despite all the hatred towards her. In my eyes that makes her a relatable character I mean dealing with being alone majority of your child hood and facing major emotional family problems. Is much more easier to sympathize with than losing my dragon father. :lol:

I liked the beginning parts much more, but there are some really asspully moments later that hurt the experience for me, and some characters do stupid things like Gray and Natsu fighting in the middle of their mission to beat Zeref that annoyed me sooooo much.

I'm with you on all of that. I really liked Erza's chapter but let's not ignore the fact that she is the ultimate ex machina. The fanservice killed me, it took precedence over the plot and like you said there were several asspulls. Honesty I really got sick of "The Power of Friendship" always saying the damn day. There were so many plot holes at the end of the manga. I was never fan of FT per se but I found the earlier arcs to be better paced and written.

I was so into the manga because I really liked the anime. The manga itself caught my attention as on how much the author improved his drawing during the years. But as he improved that part of the manga, the plot really went down. There were many plot holes that really needed to be filled. Too many questions were left without any answers and even if I didn't want anyone to dye, it is absurd no to kill any character that was not evil. Everytime there was a glance of a possible death, I wasn't even worried, I just knew he wasn't killing anyone. Kind of needed that.

Talking about fairy tail is a manga get the whole genres in one pack,i love fairy tail I have read the manga, what make me love this manga is power of friendship,straight of believing oneself and the funny part is stupid fight that occur frequently between gray and nasty, always gray and Julia the two love birds.

I agree with the fanservice being so annoying that it made me lose any interest in the characters. I do care about Happy, though. I love that cat--er-Exceed.

Ft had very good plot premise. I liked the first few chapters / episodes in the anime. But I agree to some posts that it had too much fan service in the end. The gag of showing the girls, often Lucy, in compromising situations became too stale, and it was no longer funny in the long run.
