Okay, I got my shift key working today so I decided to start my 1st thread at MH if I'm allowed to. And you know. I don't get the criticisms on the friendship stuff at all, so I think it's best to put this aside and start to talk about the positive aspects of Mashima's work "Fairy Tail" - can be anything even if you simply feel great about Ichiya.
Watch out since this is supposed to be the fanboy corner - but fangirls are welcome as well.
I'll begin with the dragons. If there's something Mashima is being capable of - then it's drawing AWESOME Dragons. Those from Monster Hunter Orage were great too, so I'm really looking forward to how the dragons that Mashima is going to reveal.
I also like the concept of stellar spirits and how their powers work.
I agree about the dragons. But he's one of the best in creating characters ...a lot of Fairy Tail characters can have their own series IMO.
Also the story line...putting something in the first Arc. then complete it in the 3rd one. Fairy Tail is sure one of the best Series in current time if not even the best.

-the designs, they're recognizable and pretty unique in their own way
-the characters, i'm hard pressed to find any i actually "hate"
-emphasizing positive energy aka nakama all day
-fanservice is pretty good too :P
I love his art.
he is the best mangaka who can draw the most badass moments.
and the funny things inside his mangas are almost everytime a good laugh
e: and ofc the emotional moments(rave was the first manga which made me cry.... >.<)

-Dragons and characters have all been amazingly drawn well
- Fanservice -.-" well from all the shonen i read mashima has the more respectuful 'subtle' kind and its not usually too much as much and he remembers to give us fangirls some too xD
-the positive outlook of this manga is what draws me to love it, iknow what to expect and i love it, it makes my day it makes me smile =D
- Family, friends and romance all play a very big part as well as having fun and helping each other and Mashima knows how to do it well enough.
-Plot twists, i have never been surprised by these till i started reading mashimas work its hinted, its sometimes given and then poof something bigger and awesomer happens!
-Mysteries that keep you on the edge, The dragons, Lucy and Layla, the dragons slayers all seem to be connected in some way and he's done this steadily and in a brilliant flowing way
So yeah Im a biiig fan =]
OH and im the first fangirl woot!
I have to agree. His character creation is some of the best I've seen; they all have their own unique personality traits and abilities that seem to coincide with them perfectly. I also agree that many could have their own series - especially Mira and Ultear! I also have to commend him on his creation of his unique perspective on the use of magic - it's not like anything I've seen before and it is implemented with mastery and creativity.Quote:
♥ His drawing skills, hands down one of the best artists of manga I know.
♥ Humor, yep I so love it. When I was saying to my friend about FT and what do I like about it, I immediately said "In other mangas, I laugh every second or third chapter. In FT, I laugh every second or third page."
♥ Again, characters.
♥ Friendship, love, emotions. Many people hate this, I know, but I learned to appreciate it. If you want reality, read seinen.
♥ A certain pairing. One of three not-yet canon pairings I ship
♥ The plot with Dragons, it got me on board. I like the way I can theorize about upcoming events. He doesn't give us spoilerish things, but still enough for us to make up scenarios
♥ Layla plot.. could be added to ↑, but this person alone needs a line. Such a mystery, an very interesting mystery
♥ Again, could be said in here↑, but... 777!!! That number! I want to know what happened so badly.
♥ Celestial magic. Overall, the magic system in FT is very good, I found myself loving this type...
I think everyone can find something they love about Fairy Tail, they just shouldn't expect things they won't find here.
Gray and Fanservice. I'm happy
- The art. Fairy Tail has some of the best art I've seen
- The themes of friendship, determination, etc. I know a lot of people here hate that, but I really like it.
- Fanservice. fairy Tail has great fanservice. It's really great
- Characters. Fairy Tail has some really unique and quirky personalities.
-One thing I particularly like about Fairy Tail is the interaction between the characters. It's one of the few mangas that have an enormous cast and somehow manage to not forget a single character that appeared. It' s not just the main characters interacting together, there are other characters around, and everyone has his own personality, supported by the cover stories/descriptions.
-Another point is the importance of Dragons in the story, and the mystery that surrounds the year 777
-the art style of course, but that has been mentioned often enough, I suppose

EDIT: Nice to see someone pointlessly edited my post. I'm not saying. I'm just saying.

First of all, thank you all for sharing what you like about Fairy Tail. It's really refreshing ... to see other readers who like the fan service, too. I wasn't quite sure if it was okay to start the topic with this.
Does anyone want to pick favorite characters already? Or are there to many to list? Hm... Aquarius, Lucy, Elza (Scarlet), Angel, Aries, Leo, Scorpion, Mirajane, Happy, Pantherlily, Gildarts, Virgo, that catgirl from Fairy Tail Miki(?), and that one geezer from the Council running the restaurant. Oh, Ultear is also great.
I won't go off-topic any further talking about what right people have to criticize Fairy Tail nor their issues with friendship being a power boost that turns the tables - and I hope no one else will in this thread is going to react to this.
/hint: "Fanboy corner" - and it would be great if people who want to put criticism in here would respect the positive attitude...

Remember guys that this thread was created for the sole purpose to talk about what you enjoy the most from the series.
That means NO NEGATIVE comments allowed in this thread.
There is a thread where you can post all of what you dislike about the series... Weak Points in the Fairy Tail Series.
But as the OP states... stay away from bashing or flaming.
