  • Zabrina Rodriguez
    Three words. Best. Series. Ever. If you liked One Piece You will definitley love this. Funny, Actiony, Awesome. Better art than One Piece but still similar to the funloving series. Centered around nakama or friends/family. Hiro Mashima definitley has an imagination and is just completely awesome. Long Live Fairy Tail!

    This is a wonderful book that belongs to a wonderful series! It's creative how some people can use different kinds of magic like fire, ice, celestial and more. The drawings are great. The characters all have their own hidden past, that you'll get to read later on. The characters in this series all also have their own personality. The plot is great as well. There are several arcs that keep you reading more. I enjoyed this book. It is one of my fav...

    Ah, gotta love the masses and their love for mediocrity. Fairy Tail (FT) is from the pilot chapter/episode an average shonen series and yet it is loved by many for being just that. I guess rehashing notions from Naruto or One Piece can make a success out of anything. Because just like those shonens, FT has superpowers, adventure and a big cast of colourful and eccentric characters that occasionally get focused upon and fleshed out. Nothing we hav...

    This is my MOST FAVORITE anime and manga of ALL TIME! So much laughter laced with the thrill of excitement as each magic battle takes place. Also, some of the moments are really sad or beautiful that even I sometimes cried! And that is the truth. I love the different kinds of magic a wizard could have. Also, I really admire the bond between the Fairy Tail members; they have complete trust in one another and would rather give up their life instead...
  • Anusha Narasimhan
    This is the best first volume I've ever read! It's funny, engaging and a bit unpredictable. I don't normally read ongoing series (still haven't read Bleach, One Piece, Hunter X Hunter, Attack on Titan... you get the drift). I just hate waiting for the next issue. Silly me, I thought I'd take a glance at the first chapter and ended up getting completely hooked. Now I have to burn through 495 chapters and keep an eye out for future chapter releases...

    No sabía si comenzar a leer esta serie o no, pero me gusta tanto el anime que no me he podido resistir, y de momento no me arrepiento. ¡Me gusta tanto Natsu!
  • Veronica Morfi
    Decided to finally start this manga. So far it's really good and hilarious. I just really want to get to know the dark pasts of all the characters.
  • Brittany
    I cannot wait to get to the second book! I love Hiro Mashima's art and stories and just now I'm going to love this series! A fun filled, hilarious new series following wizards and a happy companion (pun intended, his name is happy)! Involving wizard guilds, odd jobs, and a completely different sort of magic!

    Simply the best! "Even if I can't see. Even if I can't hear. I have light inside me. The path I walked with my friends, is bringing light to my future. I don't fear anything! This isn't even worthy of being called pain! The worst pain is.. The pain of losing your light." -Erza Scarlet
  • Lucian Vaizer
    Un mangaka muere siendo un artista o vive lo suficiente como para convertirse en un Hiro Mashima.No malgastaré mi escaso y precioso tiempo criticando uno de los mangas shonen más prometedores y más decepcionantes que he leído en los últimos diez años. Me limitaré a decir que es cierto que soy injusto dándole una estrella al primer volumen de Fairy Tail —cuando el autor todavía se sentía motivado para crear un rico universo y dar forma...
  • London
    This rating is for the fairy tali series in general, 1)because I love it and 2) but I'm not going to go through and rate every single volume. This first volume got off to a rocky start. It is a bit confusing and the plot isn't in full swing yet, but once it heats up the series is amazing. It is dynamic, it keeps you on your toes (and with your face between its pages), and it is incredibly funny.One of my other favorite mangas is Bleach. I am also...
  • Connor
    This was so much fun and a perfect introduction to manga if you haven't read any before! I'm glad that it was a little different than the show so it kept it really interesting. I just love fairy tail, so I'll definitely be continuing soon since I'm in such a reading-slumpy mood.
  • eahbooklover
    A thoroughly enjoyable manga that is hilarious, exciting and fun. With a great drawing style and memorable characters this is a manga that I'd definitely recommend!
  • Camellia
    Would love to be part of their world.
  • Roxana Chirilă
    I watched a few episodes of the anime at one point and really enjoying it, so I've been considering getting the manga for months now. Unfortunately, it's very long and not yet finished, so I kept postponing it until I finally saw it on Humble Bundle today and jumped at the opportunity (45 volumes at the price of about 2 volumes? SIGN ME UP!)Anyway, the first volume is a fairly good start to the series - there's the compulsory "pilot" episode wher...
  • Kaion
    Feels suspiciously like an RPG, minus the level grinds and the getting hopelessly lost (Review of Fairy Tail: Vol. 1-3)I had a whim to introduce a rollicking adventure shonen manga to my life, so Fairy Tail fit the bill. In fact, it may fit the bill too well.Manga titles are often just plain weird or nonsensical, but in this case, the pun is almost apt (the story is about wizards, not fairies). The titular Fairy Tail is the name and symbol of the...

  • Genesis Samaniego
    So I basically said everything I love about this book in my last update so this review isn't going to be very long :/ Well, as I have said, Fairy Tail is just one of those mangas/animes that just make you smile at the thought. If I have learned anything from this series it's that, family goes deeper than blood. It vaules friendship to such an extent!!! I love how it's a serious, yet heart-warming book can be. As you read the manga you just kinda ...
  • Xabier Fernández
    Me ha gustado bastante este primer tomo, me parece un buen inicio.Sí que es verdad que el desarrollo es más bien lento y le cuesta avanzar a la historia, especialmente en el segundo capítulo. Pero también es cierto que deja ver a bastantes personajes que pintan como redondos y que son muy interesantes a primera vista.Tengo curiosidad en continuar leyendo la saga porque sí que es verdad que la idea me gusta mucho y creo que puedar ofrecernos ...
  • Micha
    I've caught up on the anime and now I'm going to start the manga. 49 volumes to go.
  • Giniah_Queen (Giniah F)
    This is one of the FUNNIEST books I've ever read because the facial expressions are so crazy and weird !
  • Emma
    The low rating has more to do with my inability to distinguish between characters in the art work and also my first manga which is hard work to read initially. Will definitely try manga again though!
  • Brittani
    Book: 5/125 Rating: 4 StarsI loved this. There is nothing else to say. Series will be continued. I am happy I have another manga other then Full Metal to tuck into.
  • Lenni✨ (Whenimetabook)
    5/5 estrellas. Lo amé demasiado, y lo extrañaba un montón.Primera vez que me animo a comenzar a coleccionar una serie de manga tan extensa como esta, y no me da miedo el que llegue a inundar mi biblioteca de sus copias, y creo que ninguna otra persona se sentiría intimidada si supiera LA TREMENDA HISTORIA QUE HAY ACÁ.Los personajes son tan diversos y eso que apeeeenas nos van mostrando el primer gremio de magos, y al que yo le tengo más ape...

    This was my 1st try at manga / graphic novels. It was fun and cute. It took me a little while to get used to the reading style but all in all really great start to a series.

    I have to admit that I have been really bad at writing reviews due to lack of time and I'm just not that eloquent with my words. However, I could not leave this one blank no sir! I am a huge fan of Fairy Tail, when I was younger I used to binge watch the anime with my friends. I did read the manga but not as much as I watched the show. It's been a number of years since I last picked this up and I must say, what a ride! First of all the world in t...
