another thing i like bout mashimas work:
he surprises me very often(except the nakama power)
he has the balls to do a 7 year timeskip with the main cast not growing at all.
with that he went against the mainstream of the usual timeskips.
I just love Mashima's work. The art's amazing. Rave's art got really amazing when it was reaching its end. As for fairy Tail, when it started, I thought it was already wonderful. He proved me wrong as he continues to dray.The story's one of the very thing that motivates me love Fairy Tail. How there are so many questions about dragons, Zeref, Lucy, and Layla that keeps you reading it more. I know that somewhere in the future, the plot would drop like a bomb leaving me speechless like he did with Elie in Rave.
The idea of how he used magic in this story is also unique and I just love it. The nature of magic is one of a kind. He mentioned once that it wasn't really magic but way of magic, martial arts of magic but he had no way of translating it to english.
The characters, the characters, there's nothing to be said since it's just so lovable. It's hard to find a character that's not lovable. One of the things that got me hook to this manga is the characters. The personality and the sens e of humor really got to me.
The concept of how family and romance used is unique. The pairing's not just one and to make them fit altogether is amazing. The canon pairing feels really fresh since I don't find it stereotypical.
