Title: Fairy Tail
Author: Hiro Mashima
Summary: Cute girl wizard Lucy wants to join the Fairy Tail, a club for the most powerful wizards. But instead, her ambitions land her in the clutches of a gang of unsavory pirates led by a devious magician. Her only hope is Natsu, a strange boy she happens to meet on her travels.
In a yearbook, Natsu would be voted Most Likely To: Become a Serial Arsonist.
This book reminded me of One Piece because they’re very similar in how the plots work and the characters act. Fairy Tail is famous for being a One Piece rip-off, although I think that it’s pretty different when you get to the core of it. They have the same camaraderie theme, but Fairy Tail then focuses mainly on that while One Piece branches off in all sorts of directions.
Review: Fairy Tail, a typical action shonen manga, follows a girl who wants to become a strong wizard and a strong wizard boy who wants to find his missing dragon dad. They’re both part of a famously destructive, chaotic, and kind-hearted wizarding guild and they make friends and defeat evil wizards bent on world domination and the like. It’s better than it sounds.
