Everyone is comparing this title to One Piece, and so will I !! Hey, they both have so much in common that Fairy Tail can be considered a clone (or rip-off) of the older and proven One Piece series. But.. whatever... If it works once, then why not try it again....|
But they do have one big difference!! ODA Eiichiro (the mangaka for One Piece) is a much better story teller than MASHIMA Hiro.
And Forbin's complaint about Natsu is true. His special ability is a FIERY FLAME. So it is a ball of flame, a fist of flame, a jet of flame or a foot of flame. And a lot of Natsu's fight scenes are recycled more than once. I like Luffy's stretchy ability better. It is weirder and more creative.
But otherwise this a fun tale that will probably rate at least a RENT. On a personal note, I despise MASHIMA Hiro's silly pointed nosed blue doggie pet-animal called a PLUU.

It's funny , drawn well, plotted well.
It has one major flaw and that's Natsu's animation. It's THE SAME EVERY TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lucy has 8 , Grey has a few, and Erza has at least 3, but Natsu has 20+ powers that ALL USE THE SAME ANIMATION. Jeez
8/11 - I'm still watching this strong! Still funny and still good. At least Natsu has more animations now. 11/12 - And I'm STILL watching this!

I don't know how this compares to One Piece, of which it has been accused of being a blatant ripoff, but I found it to have some good points here and there. Mainly a fair dose of good jokes--like the way Lucy's mermaid responded to her commands. Other gags--like the motion sickness one--are distinctly lame, so the humor quality is all over the board. The story as a whole seems kind of dull, and since I'm not a magic fanatic I am reluctant to get wrapped up in it, even if it's only for something like twelve episodes. Still, there is a certain goofy, spirited style to Fairy Tail, so I would not label it a complete disaster by any means. It has to be the character designs--especially their eyes--which most reminds me of One Piece.
My favorite line: "Don't give me that face of you've just had a revelation!" --Lucy
