I'm confused on some of the terms used. I'm on the Tenrou Island arc (in the anime, as I'm unable to find an offical English translation of the manga ) and the island is called that in the Funimation English dub, but on here, the island is called Sirius Island. If that's what it's called in the official English translation of the manga, please tell me.

Bump. If no one replies within the next few days, I'll post this on Headscratchers. I really want to know which translation is correct.

Well, headscratchers articles are for asking questions, so...

Just want to throw this out there but does Jellal heavily remind anyone else of Shinbou Sensui.? They both potential messiahs who went crazy, used their charisma to deceive others into following them, and they both essentially trying to unleash a great evil causing the end of the world. Not to mention they both used a kind of sacred magic/power, their arcs had a lot of religious overtones, they were manipulated by their partner/assistant, became death seekers, and last but not least they're both voiced by Robert Mc Collum

I'm not entirely sure that the phrasing (or sentiment) in the main page for Fary Tail is correct in regards to the art style. While it is true that they were developed independantly, the art for Fary Tail and One Piece is almost identicle, with certain characters who fill the same position having so many similarities it almost cannot be coincidental. Any thoughts?

In my opinion, it isn't that similar anymore. In the beginning yes, they looked very, very much alike, and that's because both artists have similar sources of inspiration. But I think there's a pretty big case of Art Evolution, to the point where we're still able to point out a large number similarities but One Piece and Fairy Tail certainly aren't identical.

So yeah... Time Skip... What? Don't really get what the point was other than making the guild Restart at Level One

  • Chaste Hero: Has he ever shown attraction to someone...?
    • Maybe... Based on his reaction to seeing Lisanna in Edolas, one might argue that he was/is attracted to her.
      • Uh, Gildarts said that they were in a relationship, or at least were very close, when he asked Natsu about her.
      • He seemed like he was teasing Natsu like an older bro, though, so that doesn't necessarily mean anything.
      • He DOES know how to use female sex appeal against an enemy,so at least he is fully aware of the sexual arousal effects. This may further hint that he ever did experienced it
      • Just look her reaction when she re meet with the Real Natsu, they obviously have some relationship.
    • There was this exchange in the OVA:
    Natsu: What would we be peeping at?
    Wakaba: The girls in their bathing suits, of course!
Discuss how this trope should be incorporated into Natsu's character profile

Should we add a Fairy Tail Ho Yay page? Lucy alone might have enough Les Yay to justify it.

I keep trying to start one but I'm having trouble organizing it. I know how to start a page, but I have no clue what to put on it when I've done so.

A little help please?

Exactly what kind of protagonist is Lucy? Her character post states that she is a supporting protagonist; the main character of the story, yet she's not hero. Yet on the main fairy tail trope page, it says that Natsu has more focus than Lucy herself. I think Lucy is something of an Ishmael; it's from her perspective but Natsu has kind of a greater motivation.
06:30:14 PM Jul 24th 2011
The Ishmael is a subtrope of Supporting Protagonist, and for both of those the focus is NOT on the protagonist (protagonist = viewpoint character). From what I understand, the main difference is whether the protagonist has any importance other than relaying the hero's actions to the audience.

I added a note to Spell My Name with an "S" regarding Loke. Loke is the Old Norse (and Norwegian, Danish and Icelandic) spelling of the name of Loki, the trickster god. I added it for clarification. Feel free to delete it or incorporate it differently.

This entry isn't really true:

Retcon: When Gajeel and Juvia joined Fairy Tail it was said that they were instantly promoted to S-rank mages. As of chapter 201 they appearently aren't...

Where is it said that they were instantly promoted to S-Class upon joining Fairy Tail? Max announces Juvia as a mage with S-Class skill for the Miss Fairy Tail contest, but other than that there isn't anything that confirms either of the two as S-Class.
05:38:05 PM Sep 27th 2010
He says S-Class here, nothing about skill:

Admittedly I also recall it being said they were S-Class when they first were shown to join, though I can't find it, so it might have been a weird translation... >>
06:59:22 PM Sep 27th 2010
It must have been a translation error then, because that's the only thing I can think of, aside from a Retcon of course, that explains the discrepancy.

Do other translations say the same thing?
03:45:08 PM Oct 1st 2010
The fact that Max called Juvia an S-Class mage is a translation error, ...Or So I Heard.

Either way, that's just Juvia - there's nothing about Gajeel.
12:27:14 PM Jul 18th 2010
Question: Should Juvia still be considered a Stalker with a Crush even after all this time? She started out as one, but the tendencies you usually associate with a stalker in this case have drastically diminished as time went on.

Now it's to the point where Juvia and Gray spend an awful amount of time together and other characters are commenting about them.
09:30:17 PM Apr 23rd 2011
You could add a note that she was one. It's worth keeping listed since it was more or less her first quality.
08:45:55 PM May 11th 2010
Should we add a note not to use Scanslation spelling, and only to use the official english spelling? It would hopefully end people constantly using incorrect names.

Is Jellal the official English spelling? Cause I think it might be better to switch to the scanlation Gerard in that case. Jellal is, no offence if it's name in some language I'm not familiar with, kinda dumb.
04:49:01 PM Aug 16th 2011
Jellal is an arabic name, it means superior or great, and is the name of a famous Persian sultan who thought love made you closer to god than the priests. which adds a fridge brilliance to the character.

Regarding this:
  • Ass Pull: The Ex Balls. What a convenient way for everyone to get their magic back in Edoras! Even worse when Lucy totally forgot she had one herself before coming to Edoras.
I'd call that less a case of Lucy forgetting, and more of a case of Lucy not realizing that she'd been given one. She seemed awfully confused about everything that had happened when she met up with Natsu and Wendy. Besides, she said that Mystogan/Mistgun gave her a drink rather than a pill, so it's kind of understandable she would be confused about Gray having the pills. I'd also like to say it's less of an Ass Pull and more of a cop-out, because I thought Lucy's magic or Lucy herself may be something of bigger importance that originally thought. But no, it's a silly little pill.
07:32:27 AM May 24th 2010
It's also worth noting that getting sent to Edoras by Mistgun (as opposed to an Exceed) was the only variable between them (aside from not being a Dragon Slayer), it's adequately set up enough to not be an Ass Pull at all.

(Also also worth noting that in Japanese "drink liquid" and "take medicine" use the same verb, even if said medicine is in solid form, and that subtlety is impossible to translate concisely.)
11:58:09 AM Apr 12th 2010
Just wondering if there's some kind of trope that covers the fact that the Tower of Paradise apparently looks completely different in the anime (being a twisted mishmash of metal instead of a stone or crystal tower)? The closest thing I can think of is Adaptation Dye Job, but I really doubt that that applies here.
11:06:19 AM Apr 2nd 2010
Should we create a Crowning Moment of Awesome page for the series? I'm torn between the idea that not every series should get his own page and the fact that, let's admit it, both the manga and the anime are full of these, so it would be easy to list some. What do you think?
06:48:50 PM Apr 3rd 2010
Go for it. It's perfectly OK for every series to have its own page- the problem is a single character having more than one. That would be nonsense.
08:42:02 PM Mar 12th 2010
This statement bothers me: I know this was added before the anime was even out, so I'd like to know exactly how one determines how English is "pitch-perfect" in text form. I'm also assuming the person was referring to the original Japanese translated, so that makes it harder to determine. Working on investigating raws to see if the above statement is actually true and the attacks are actually written in English rather than katakana.
