"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, magic is merely a tool, 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 Fairy Tail."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 The Power of Friendship.A manga by Hiro Mashima, the man behind Rave Master, consisting so far of thirteen story arcs, proving itself among the more successful long-running shonens. Its art style and themes are quite similar to One Piece, although not to the point of being a carbon copy.Fairy Tail has been adapted into an anime, and is licensed by Funimation. However, like Bleach beforehand, the anime will end without adapting the latest manga content. Licensed episodes are available to watch on Hulu and on Youtube. A movie was released in the Summer of 2012. Natsu, Lucy and friends appear in the Massive Multiplayer Crossover game, Sunday VS Magazine Shuuketsu Choujou Daikessen. Also has a podcast here and a wiki here. The anime ended on March 30, 2013, although Hiro Mashima has confirmed that it will continue as soon as more volumes are completed. So it's more like its on a hiatus at the moment, in the meantime reruns of the anime will continue to run under the title Fairy Tail Best.Not to be confused with the Fairy Tale genre (by the way, Word of God has stated since the beginning that the spelling of the name is intentional).For the sake of keeping people from getting confused, please refer to the official English spellings for all character names.Due to the page length, this page was split into subpages.Also see the Recap page.
