Cute and fun second volume, with a bit of over-the-top silliness (what was up with Boyoyo?) and a few optimistic life lessons ("Your father loved you!!!"), as well as a bit of a beginning of a bigger arc about evil guilds, unless I'm mistaken.

I'm enjoying the translation notes at the end - I'd love to be able to do that on the books I work on (maybe I should ask people to let me do it...), as well as the author's notes at the end, about how he hopes he'll get to volume three and volume ten is a

The second volume in Fairy Tail was not as exciting as the first one but still pretty great in its own right. I feel like my rating is justified. For anyone who is familiar with the anime, it starts with the Everlue arc and ends with the hint of the Eisenwald arc. Or well, through part of it. The remaining will probably be touched in the third volume.

What I liked the most about this volume was how it kept the spirit of Fairy Tail alive and gave u

Fairy Tail takes place in a world that is a sort of schizo version of ours. It has a folks dressing in fashions from many different eras, trains exist, and other things so far that seem to place this at no specific era, but a purely fun, fantasy world.

In this world we have our hero and heroine. Well, our main hero and heroine, as this manga starts with loads of characters, and it wouldn't surprise me if it just got worse from there. Anyways, introduced in the first volume, we have our main hero

The first thing that struck me about “Fairy Tail” is its high-octane art style that serves up every comic expression like a bullet. Think “One Piece,” but with magic guilds, not pirates.
Each page of this steampunk fantasy series bursts with life, and there’s rarely a lull in the action or comedy, which makes these two volumes fast-paced reads. The characters are either instantly likeable or intriguing.
Lucy, a young wizard who’s not bashful about using her well-endowed, ahem, assets to get her wa

Run art, clichéd story.

World: Art is growing on me, the large emotions make me giggle. The world building is solid, it's not to deep and heavy but you can tell that it's be thought about and there is some order to it. I like that the guild is slowly through visuals being built for the reader.

Story: Solid Shonen read with a new mission and a new story. Fairly episodic at this moment and we are still in the introductory part of the tale where new characters come quick. I like the banter and inte

While I prefered volume one, this was still still yet exceptionally entertaining. I loved the additional characters being introduced however I didn't find the villains to be as good as volume one but it gives us some more depth into the world. It was fun to witness the mission which Erza, Natsu, Gray and Lucy were thrown into in the volume. Already started Volume three.

Let's make like a certain YouTube gnome and get riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigt into the review! (Except it's not really a review it's mostly just my thoughts on a few things.)

If you've caught up to Fairy Tail 2014 you might've caught up enough to get to an arc that introduces the existance of "treasure hunter" guilds. Normally this is pretty bad storytelling--to go hundreds of episodes without ever mentioning the fact that there are other kinds of guilds and then expect viewers to just go along with

Two Shonen stereotypes broken down by Fairy Tail:

1. A strong female character
Girls in Shonen are typically weak, particularly at the beginning. Some girls grow strong as the story progresses. If there is a really strong female character, she will either be introduced half way through the series and/or she will be one of the bad guys. In Fairy Tail, Erza is the strongest and scariest woman of the guild and she is introduced as early as volume 2. She isn't just kickass, she is also morally sound a

A ton of fun. Fairy tail is very entertaining, and I love how weird all the characters are! I've watched the first season and a half before starting to read these, and this volume seemed significantly more disjointed than the corresponding episodes of the show. It was a little harder to follow, but still just flat out enjoyable all the way through. Can't wait to read volume 3 which my brother kindly bought for me!

Such a fun, quick and easy read. Great artwork, some of the facial expressions are so funny. The characters are all so different, yet go perfectly together.
Plus a magic book..... what more could you want.

Still getting used to the "cutesy" aspect manga entails, but I understand that it's part of the genre. This installment involves Natsu, Lucy, and Happy taking a job to steal and destroy a book for a high-paying client. We're also introduced to Ezra and a new guild of wizards. Plenty of action along with fun moments.

4.5 out of 5 stars.

This volume is another reread for me, and boy, does a lot of it really still hold up. This volume consists of Natsu and Lucy's first big mission together as they attempt to recover a novel from a rich guy's mansion to destroy it, only to discover everything is not as it seems. Once we finish that mission, Lucy gets to meet Fairy Tail's own Erza, who is one of the strongest wizards ever. Erza, however, needs to help of Grey and Natsu (and by extention, Happy and Lucy) to invest

I didn't think I'd like this series when I first saw it and read the title of it. Just thought it was going to be boring to say the least. But I gave it a shot and now I can't wait to start reading volume 3. I see that there are over 40 volumes so I'm assuming it's an amazing series and that I'm in for an awesome adventurous ride!

Actual rating; 4,5 stars

The first one was so good, I just couldn't rate it the same as Volume 1. It probably deserved a 5 still soo... Whatever xD

I have to be honest, the evil characters kind of creeped me out, NOT in a good way... Their designs were so weird, but I assume it was meant this way. Just really creepy tho o-o

So honestly, I didn't think I'd love this one... At all.
The whole thing is about stealing and burning a book in this mansion where a (ugly creepy) Mayor lives, as well as his ma

I saw these books recommended in a Goodreads review. It's similar to Full Metal Alchemist, but with a super pretty girly with long legs and a mini skirt as character No 1. She's accompanied by some bloke and a cat. It's a little bit Meowth from Pokemon except he says "Aye" all the time as if he's straight from Scotland.

They go out to do missions. They're a little bit like Harry Potter, except these are fairies instead of wizards and witches. At times this particular volume got truly bizarre with

I saw Fairy Tail in my brother's library when I was still staying with my mom. I saw this and thought "This look too boring..." BUT I WAS WRONG! Fairy Tail is the best series Anime or Manga, It doesn't matter! (See... when I forget the date I read Manga or any other book, I put the date that is today!)

Ch. 5-9: Ok what is up with Kaby Melon, the person who wants Natsu and Lucy to steal and destroy the book "Day Break" from the Duke of Everlue, looking like Hitler? Also I find it kind of hilarious that Lucy gets rejected from being Everlue's maid because she's too ugly, especially after you see all the other ladies that made it. Natsu and Lucy break into the Duke's house to steal and destroy the book, only for her to realize it was a completely unknown book by Zakua Melon , and she totally skip ...more
