Este manga pasa de momentos sumamente delirantes e impredecibles a otros menos delirantes y más predecibles. Pero el nivel medio sigue siendo muy bueno, y la diversión está asegurada.

I liked learning more about Juvia and Gajeel. I also enjoyed Lucy helping Natsu win his fight rather than him just being so powerful. But my favorite part was the glimpse into the past that we got (and I hope we get more of) as well as the old man recovering and showing everyone why he's the master.

FairyTail has captured my heart since the beginning of it. It will never lose me now. 5000 stars.

My review is for the whole manga so far (50 volumes). Fairy Tail is set in a fantasy world where wizards join guilds to make a living, and help the population who have no magic and cannot face certain threats. Lucy is such a wizard looking for a guild, and after meeting Natsu she joins his guild Fairy Tail. I watched the anime first and I prefer the anime look, but the drawings do get better after some volumes. The regions do look pretty, and the cities as well. The manga is packed with humor ...more

Still in the Phantom Lord Arc starting off with Chapter 57: Fair-Weather Charm.
It's a fight between Rain and Ice. As Grey and Juvia clash a hysterical mishap occurs, and embarassment ensues. Grey makes anoffhand comment that the rain is gloomy. Juvia is reminded of her many years as an outcast due to her magic rain. Angered at being reminded of this, she attacks with boiling water which Grey counters with Ice-Make: Ice Geyser. Juvia faints from her adoration of Grey and there being clear skies.

This volume was just what I needed to hang on. For the past couple of volumes I felt that the story was pretty "meh," but was trudging through it because I have been recommended the series multiple times. This book made all that trudging worth it. This volume highlighted some new antagonists and brought great elements to the existing characters. I appreciated the deeper storyline that revolved around the guild and the sense of friendship these guys have.

Overall I look forward to sticking with th

What can I say? I love Fairy Tail!

The manga was a great addition. Loved the battle sequences between Natsu and The iron dragon slayer Gajeel. he is so far my favorite character in the series. although when comparing this issue with the animated series, I would have really appreciated it if the animators would have kept the phantom lord's master Jose's appearance the way it is the manga. He looks like a ridiculous joker/clown in the anime.

Would love to see more of Hiro Mashima's work.

In this volume of Fairy Tail, the guilds Fairy Tail and Phantom Lord are still at war with each other. Gray fights Juvia, Erza fights Aria, Natsu fights Gajeel, and Makarov fights Jose, all to save Lucy from her father's clutches. I really enjoyed this volume of Fairy Tail, and I'm looking forward to reading more.

The battle reaches the "Now you shall taste my true power!" stage. I'm still liking this series, but I think I'm getting impatient for the whole Phantom Lord battle to be over. Maybe I need to read some other manga for as while as a pallette cleanser or something.

Lo scontro Natsu vs. Gajil si risolve - ancora una volta - fin troppo rapidamente, con un twist davvero sempliciotto. Molto meglio il finale con due forze della natura contrapposte fra loro. Bella la devastante sequenza incentrata su Fairy Tail.

Bom volume, com direito até a capítulo extra. O único defeito digno de nota foi a alteração repentina na personalidade de Aria, que não fez muito sentido.

After the first few volumes of silly humor and slapstick, this volume is a real let-down. Too much dumb wizard fighting, not enough silly.

I love how so many things happen and it all still works out in the end. There is humor and fun in these books as well. They are graphics that i can be interested in and keep being interested in.
