->''"[[OnceUponATime In a land far, far away]] lies the kingdom of Fiore, a small, peaceful nation of seventeen million, and a place filled with magic. Found in every home, bought and sold in every marketplace, for most, [[MundaneUtility magic is merely a tool]], [[MundaneFantastic a mundane part of everyday life]]. For some, however, magic is an art, and they have devoted their lives to its practice. These are the wizards. Banded together into magical guilds, they apply their skills in search of fame and fortune. Many such guilds dot the landscape of Fiore, but there is a certain guild in a certain town that soars high above the rest, one from which countless legends have been born. A guild that will no doubt continue to create legends well into the future. Its name... is '''[[TitleDrop Fairy Tail]]'''."''
-->-- '''OpeningNarration'''

This is the tale of Lucy Heartfilia, a seventeen-year-old girl seeking to become a full-fledged wizard (or mage, if you'd prefer, though it's officially translated as "wizard"). In a magic world ruled by guilds, becoming a full wizard requires you to join one. When Lucy meets a boy named Natsu Dragneel, who also happens to be the well-known wizard Salamander, he invites her to join one of the most notorious wizard guilds--Fairy Tail--which she accepts. Their adventures continue as they do missions for the guild, struggle with problems from the past, fight world-threatening villains and learn ThePowerOfFriendship.
