Set in an imaginary world, the Earth Land, there exists a Mage Guild called "Fairy Tail". Fairy Tail is stationed in the town Magnolia, residing in the Kingdom of Fiore, and is currently governed by Makarov, Guild's master.

Lucy Heartfilia, a 17-year old girl, wishes to become a full-fledged mage and join one of the most prestigious Mage Guilds in the world, Fairy Tail.

One day, out of pure coincidence, she meets Dragneel Natsu, a boy who is transportation-sick, but very cheerful in nature. However, the thing she does not know is that Natsu is the closest connection to Fairy Tail, as he is a Mage in Fairy Tail.

My Thought:

Fairy Tail Manga is about a magical world where there are lots of Guilds a place like a club or a Union for people who use magic.

The story is about Natsu Dragneel a member of Fairy Tail Guild. He is often partnered with fellow Fairy Tail members Happy, Lucy Heartfilia, Gray Fullbuster, and Erza Scarlet.

Natsu's father Igneel, a dragon, found Natsu in the forest and ended up taking care of him. He taught Natsu how to speak, read, and Dragon Slayer magic. But one day Igneel disappeared which made Natsu look for him everywhere.

Natsu has a carefree and reckless nature and, despite his constant brawls with the other members of the guild he is loyal and protective to his friend. He has a particularly close and competitive relationship with fellow members; Gray Fullbuster and Erza Scarlet.

Natsu has a  rivalry relationship with Gray since they were young and although they often fight with each other never admit that they are friends, they always watch each others' back no matter how mach they are angry with one another. He has the same sort of relationship with Erza with one different that he and Gray both are scared of her ever since they were young.

Throughout the story they will learn a lot about each other past and they are going to go through a lot of adventures to save their town, guild and the people from the legendary black mage Zerf … with the help of other mega from other guilds as will.

Believe me when I tell you this manga is AMAZING, and so AWESOME … I love it so much it is one of my top 5 manga and if you of the people who like to watch anime there is an anime series for this manga and the anime is as good as the manga   :D

Rating: 5/5


  1. I haven't picked up a single manga! Fail. I've been wanting to try them since more and more bloggers are starting to review them and seem to love them, and clearly this series is an extremely successful one. Thanks for the review Lilly!

    1. Hey Jenny!! you should try manga ,,, they are AWESOME I love them and read them when I'm waiting for someone or something it is entertaining ,,, thank you for dropping by :)

  2. Yours is the first manga-book reviewing blog I've come across, and it looks great, Lilly! I might have to try out something like that myself over at my own blog. Do you review individual chapters, volumes, or entire mangas?

    1. Thank you for dropping by Dija ,,, I like to review the entire manga or at least the part i have already read it ,,, I love your blog and i think it will be great if you add manga as well :D

  3. I sometimes review manga on my blog, too (although, not for a while. Need to change that). I've heard of Fairy Tale probably since it came out, and I remember reading a chapter or two way back when, but I never continued it. Still, it is the sort of manga I usually like, since my favorite is Bleach.

    Have you read Death Note? That's one I need to get back to reviewing on my blog. This review sort of reminds I need to do that.

    1. Hey Cathy!! I like bleach as well ,,, and Death Note is not my favorite but it is nice and good Manga ,,, I really recommend you continue reading fairy tail it is AWESOME ,,, Thank you for dropping by and i will make sure to check your review as well :)
