I am a MASSIVE fan of the Fairy Tail anime. Some story arcs are definitely better than others (I liked the Tower of Heaven arc, the Edolas arc and I like the current Grand Magic Games arc. I hated the Key of the Starry Heavens arc, which- thank God- is only in the anime), but overall I think it's a good show. But the English dub for the current season has not been released yet. *dies* So I decided to turn to the manga to satisfy my need for Fairy Tail!
The only thing that slightly bothered me is that the illustrations are in black and white. But that's a minor complaint. You can never go wrong with Fairy Tail!
