This is one of my favorites
Episode One: Fairy Tail
The world where this series takes place has mages and monsters and a lot of other twists and turns. To truly be called a mage you must sign up in a magical guild where you will receive work and pay. These guilds are like family and ruling over these guilds is the Magic Council. The Magic Council is composed of some of the strongest mages and they try to keep order in the Kingdom of Fiore. But there are other Guilds who aren’t guided but the council. These are called Dark guilds. But that will be explained later .
In the port town of Hargeon is where the story starts. At a train station an attendant is asking a pink haired boy (who is on the floor) if he is ok. All of a sudden the boy’s cat tells the boy, Natsu, that they have arrived. When the attendant asks if he is ok again and the cat responds with an “Aye!” saying he always gets like this on transportation.
Natsu says that he can’t handle it and that he will never take a train again. The cat then says that if their information should be correct the person the are looking for, Salamander, should be in this town. After the train whistles and the cat turns around the train has taken off again with Natsu still on bored following with him screaming,”SAVE ME!!!”. Leaving the cat to say the obvious, “It departed”. Else where in that town a blonde girl is shocked that there is only 1 magic store in town. After the store manager explains that most people in the town aren’t mages and that they only focus on traveling mages. The manager tries to get the girl to buy something when she sees a gate key that she has been looking for. The man states that its not very powerful but, the girl was still looking for it. When she asks the manager how much it is he says 20,000 jewels. Result:
To get a discount off she tries to “persuade” the manager with her looks. Which later leads to her ranting outside about only getting a 1,000 jewel discount. She did get the key but she was really pissed about it until she hears some girls screaming and going gaga over a “Salamander”. Which leads to the girl stating that he was a famous wizard who can use a fire magic that you can’t buy in stores. Then it goes back to Natsu. Stating that he ended up riding the train again, resulting to the cat stating the obvious (again). Natsu complains that he is hungry but the cat says that they have no money. Natsu the referrers the the cat as Happy, asking him if this “Salamander” was Igneel. Happy then says that he doubts that there is another Fire Drangon but Igneel. Then they hear the crowd going crazy for a “Salamander”, which they happily run to after hearing the name. But…
This “Salamander” isn’t Igneel. Every girl is going crazy for him and the girl is wondering why considering all of a sudden she herself is feeling “in love”.
Wouldn’t YOU wonder why if you where like that?
As the girl is getting more and more captivated and more and more closer to him Natsu shouts IGNEEL! and makes his way through the crowd. When he comes in the charm on the girl is broken. Everyone goes silent and Natsu, with a i don’t care look on his face, says,”Who the heck are you T.T”. Leading “Salamander” to step back in surprise. He regains his composer and says his name hoping it would ring a bell. Natsu just walks away without caring. Leading to the attack of fan-girls saying that Natsu was rude. When “Salamander” says that he will forgive him and offers Natsu an autograph, the Girl just stares at “Salamander” with a knowing and angry look on her face. Natsu turns down the autograph leading to a repeat of the fangirl attack. “Salamander” then invites all of his fans to come to his party on his boat that night and leaves on his fire “red carpet”. The girl then comes up to Natsu saying that that man was a scumbag and thanking Natsu for breaking the charm. At a restaurant The girl introduces herself as Lucy, while Natsu and Happy gorge them selves with the food Lucy bought for them. Lucy goes on to say that that man “Salamander” was using a banned charm spell to make people attracted to you, and then calling “Salamander” a creepy jerk. Lucy then states that she is a mage as well and explains the guilds. Saying that she hasn’t joined a guild yet but will join one of the famous and popular ones.
Getting her all excited and curious on how she will join this amazing guild with strong wizards. Happy then states that she talks alot. Ignoring Happy’s comment she asks about who Natsu was looking for. While explaining it turns out that Igneel is not a human but a Dragon. Lucy of course freaks . She screams that a dragon wouldn’t be in a town which then causes Natsu and Happy to actually realize she is right:
When Lucy leaves and gives Natsu and Happy money to pay, when she turns around Natsu and Happy are bowing to her and thanking her. Causing Lucy to be embarrassed and yelling at them to quit it. Later Lucy is reading a magazine when “Salamander” comes by to invite her to his party.She refuses but he then persuades her to go by saying he is from Fairy Tail and that if she goes to the party that he will help her get in. Being apart of the Fairy Tail Guild is what she had always wanted and agrees to come. When “Salamander” leaves she realizes that his charm had worked on her… AGAIN. Later at night Natsu and Happy are hanging out when some girls come by gossiping about “Salamander” from Fairy Tail who is having a party on the boat. Hearing Fairy Tail Natsu looks to the boat… then he feels like he is going to hurl. On the boat, “Salamander” then starts to compliment Lucy and he wants to start with a toast. He uses his magic to get pearls of the drink and tries to lead the pearls into Lucy’s mouth. Leaving Lucy thinking: ANNOYING!
She then realizes that the drink has magic in it called Sleep.
Can YOU guess what it does XD .
“Salamander” then states that she is a handful and all of a sudden men appear behind the curtains carrying the party guests. He then states that Lucy is merchandise now and that they are heading to Bosco. Lucy whips out her keys but “Salamander” uses his magic to knock them from her hands. He states that they are gate keys and that Lucy is a Celestial wizard. Since the spirits in the keys hold a contract with there holders he throws them out the window. Lucy is shocked that THIS is a Fairy Tail wizard and that they are horrible… Then Natsu crashes through the boat from nowhere, he immediately gets sick, Lucy replies: LAME! Happy then comes in with WINGS (explain later ^_^’, but it is his magic) and carries Lucy off. Since Happy can only carry one… guess where Natsu is! Then Happy’s transformation runs out, and Lucy and Happy hit the water. She swims to find her keys while Happy hits a rock. When Lucy finds her keys she summons:
AQUARIUS! Happy goes crazy because he sees her as a fish. Lucy explains her magic when Aquarius warns her that if she drops her key again she will kill her.Despite her attitude toward Lucy, she does what Lucy asks and sweeps the boat up in water sending it crashing to land, sweeping Lucy and Happy away too. When everyone is on land and Lucy asks why she swept her as well Aquarius states that she had failed. Since she had gotten the ship as well. Aquarius then leaves saying not to call her for a while since she is going on a vacation with her boyfriend. The ship is wrecked and Lucy calls to Natsu while he is looking down with a serious look. When Natsu says that “Salamander” isn’t a Fairy Tail wizard “Salamander” ignores it and sicks his crew on him. Natsu takes off his jacket while saying that “Salamander” should remember his face. Happy then eases (more like surprises) Lucy by saying that Natsu is actually a wizard. Natsu then knocks some of “Salamander’s” goons down and states:
So epic (note the symbol that is the guilds symbol that is shown alot)
He surprises both Lucy and “Salamander” and then it is revealed (by his nervous goon) that “Salamander” was actually Bora the Prominence, who was thrown out of his guild. Natsu then states that he doesn’t care whether Bora was good or bad but he wasn’t about to get away for pretending to be from Fairy Tail. Which starts the Battle. Bora then shoots his fire at Natsu, but it doesn’t work since Natsu appears ok, WHILE EATING THE FALMES! Then one of Bora’s nervous men states that he recognizes Natsu as the REAL Fairy Tail Salamander. Bora and Natsu then go at it attacking each other and destroying the town. During this it is also revealed that Natsu uses a ancient and rare magic called Dragon Slayer. It transforms your body parts into those of a dragon and was once used to slay dragons. Ironically it was taught TO Natsu by a dragon. Anyway the battle finishes like this:
Bora pwned badly yay!
After the overboard battle the military comes in and scares Natsu off. AND he grabs Lucy while running. When she screams why Natsu just yells that she said she wanted to join Fairy Tail. This makes Lucy happy and the episode ends like this:
That’s the start to the series. Fairy Tail is super funny even on the serious parts. It basically for everyone but the romance people. It has some but its mostly one sided . This series is pretty long though (still going even in the manga). So after the 2nd episode i might just do it by arcs (or else i’m up to my neck in 53+ episodes). Fairy Tail is very interesting the way things are. Considering that the little events are somehow apart of the main problem, and they aren’t exactly focusing on it 24/7. The only thing that i didn’t like was Happy’s voice… Its a guy cat but his voice is sooo high :/ (Makes me wonder how the rest of the flying cats sound like). One of my favorite things is that Plue from Rave Master is in here to! but he a dog not a bug ( Plue is the white thing in the theme song with the pointed nose)
