The Fairy Tail manga was originally published in 2006, and will be coming to an end on July 26th with it’s 545th chapter (Currently it has 61 volumes in print, with the last two on the way). It has since been adapted into two seasons of anime, two movies, and an OVA. The most recent adaptation in the series, Fairy Tail Movie 2: Dragon Cry, aired in May and will be coming to U.S. and Canadian theaters this August.
MAL’s Rewrite Team describes the series:
In the mystical land of Fiore, magic exists as an essential part of everyday life. Countless magic guilds lie at the core of all magical activity, and serve as venues for like-minded mages to band together and take on job requests. Among them, Fairy Tail stands out from the rest as a place of strength, spirit, and family.
Lucy Heartfilia is a young mage searching for celestial gate keys, and her dream is to become a full-fledged wizard by joining this famous guild. In her search, she runs into Natsu Dragneel and his partner Happy, who are on a quest to find Natsu’s foster father, the dragon Igneel.
Upon being tricked by a man, Lucy falls under an abduction attempt, only to be saved by Natsu. To her shock, he reveals that he is a member of Fairy Tail and invites her to join them. There, Lucy meets the guild’s strange members, such as the ice wizard Gray Fullbuster and magic swordswoman Erza Scarlet. Together as a family, they battle the forces of evil, help those in need, and gain new friends, all the while enjoying the never-ending adventure that is Fairy Tail.
