Fairy Tail

Thursday 1st March 2012


Matt Kamen is your guide to the world of Fairy Tail!

Fairy Tail

Welcome to Earthland, where magic runs rampant and professional wizards sell their talents to the highest bidder! Populated by all kinds of mystical creatures, it’s a place of wonder but also one filled with peril.

FAIRY TAIL is the name of the most famous wizard’s guild in all the land. Located in the town of Fiore, the guild members are the rock stars of the magical world. Like all guilds, Fairy Tail members take on paying jobs from the public, though collectively they have a reputation for being a touch over-zealous in completing their objectives. Nevertheless, they get explosive results and none more so than the guild’s powerful Dragon Slayer....

Fairy TailNATSU DRAGNEEL, also known by the nickname ‘Salamander’. While he’s a powerful fire mage, “Dragon Slayer” is an odd title for Natsu as he was raised by the dragon Igneel, who vanished seven years ago. His foster parent taught him more than a few tricks, including channelling his body heat into intense flames, sprouting tough skin and claws for use in combat and exhaling powerful plumes of white-hot fire. He even has the ability to feast on any other form of burning material – from a matchstick to raw lava, it’s all a snack to Natsu! If he has a real weakness, it’s that he’s a terrible traveller, with even a gentle train ride causing him to become nauseously ill. It’s even worse when he’s flown around by...

HAPPY, his talking, transforming blue pet cat. He’s no ordinary familiar though, as Natsu found him as an egg (!) six years ago and raised him from the day he hatched! A friendly and fiercely loyal character, Happy’s magic allows him to grow angel wings and fly at tremendous speed, and he also has an innate knowledge of the arcane world. Though he’s almost always cheery and positive, ending his sentences with a catchphrase “Aye!”, he’s not above teasing....

Lucy HeartfiliaLUCY HEARTFILIA, a 17-year old would-be member of the Fairy Tail guild. Having left her aristocratic family behind, she sets out to put her summoning skills to the test by joining the famous group. Crossing paths with Natsu and Happy, she proves herself by helping them deal with a fraud pretending to be Natsu to kidnap fangirls, earning her place in the guild. Using silver and gold keys to call upon ‘Celestial Spirits’ to fight alongside her, Lucy can more than hold her own in battle. Even so, she’s still a bit perturbed by some of her new teammates, such as....

Gray FullbusterGRAY FULLBUSTER, a laid back ice mage, with the unfortunate habit of subconsciously stripping! The orphan of a demon’s attack on a northern village, Gray was taken in by Ur, who taught him the ‘Ice Make’ brand of magic. As a member of Fairy Tail, he’s a regular on missions with Natsu, Lucy and Happy, his frosty powers contributing to a devastating elemental team combo.

Team Natsu is rounded out with....

Erza ScarletERZA SCARLET, who uses a material form of magic known as ‘Requiping’. Able to equip and switch between phantom armour and weaponry with but a thought, Erza is a phenomenally powerful melee fighter. Having been able to employ telekinesis since childhood, she’s grown into one of the top-ranked wizards in the world. Her prowess makes her come across as strict, haughty and impatient but she has a much warmer side too, and is devoted to her guildmates.

Team Natsu will cross paths with many other friends and foes over the course of the series – keep an eye out for more of Japan’s top fantasy saga very soon!

Fairy Tail is out on 5th March on UK DVD from Manga Entertainment.

Fairy Tail and Japan's Shonen magazine

Matt Kamen on Japan’s Weekly Shonen Magazine
Mystic action abounds in the second thrilling collection of Fairy Tail, as flame-spewing Natsu, ice-mage Gray, summoner Lucy and the rest of the gang take on sorcerous threats across the world of Earthland. The series is based on the long running manga by Hiro Mashima, and as the anime closes in on its 150th episode in Japan, it’s clearly shaping up to be the next Naruto or Bleach, delivering ongoing adventure to a devoted audience. Unlike a certain orange ninja or black-garbed grim reaper though, Fairy Tail’s roots do not lie in the pages of the famous Weekly Shonen Jump anthology.

Fairy Tail music: MAGIC PARTY

Tom Smith on the music behind Fairy Tail 5
It’s been said that two’s company, three’s a crowd. But for Japanese electro-pop duo AIRI and Koshiro, two is more than enough to party – to MAGIC PARTY! At least if the cutesy name of the pair’s musical project is to be believed.

FAIRY TAIL MUSIC: W-INDS

Tom Smith on the band behind Be As One
Unlike a number of the bands featured on the Manga UK blog, W-inds haven’t had much of a history with anime tie-ins despite their massive success. In fact, in 14 years they’ve only ever done two anime themes; their first in Akira Amano’s Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, and more recently with Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail, where their 29th single Be as One became its sixth ending.

Unspinning Fairy Tail

Hugh David argues that the treasure is in the detail
The biggest influence on this anime is not tabletop RPGs or even the long-standing fantasy fiction genre itself. No, the stamp of numerous Japanese role-playing videogames is all over Fairy Tail, from the Atelier series to the Final Fantasy franchise, in particular Final Fantasy XII
