Win Big in the Fairy Tail S-Class Showdown

Now that we’re ramping up our releases of Fairy Tail on Blu-ray and DVD, we’re nearing one of the biggest Fairy Tail arcs of all: the Tenrou Island arc. The most powerful wizards in the Fairy Tail guild travel to a remote island rich in magic—and history. There, they compete against one another to see who among them deserves to be given the title of “S-Class.”

We won’t spoil how the story ends—you’ll need to buy Fairy Tail Parts Nine and Ten for that –but we wanted to see who YOU think would win in head-to-head fights between Fairy Tail guild wizards. And it just happens to be March, so welcome to the Fairy Tail S-Class Showdown!



Each weekday, fans will vote for who they think would win in a fight between two Fairy Tail guild members. The next day, we’ll let you know who won!


Of course, no tournament would be complete without a prize, so take a look below for details.

series synopsis:
Get ready for Psycho-Pass, a hardboiled, gun-slinging sci-fi series from the creator of Madoka Magica and the studio that brought you Ghost in the Shell.

In the future, even just thinking about a crime is enough to make you guilty – and justice is dispensed from the barrel of a gun. Detectives work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, and Inspectors make sure their partners don’t cross the fine line between good and evil. The great equalizer in the war against thugs is the Dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the probability that a citizen will turn criminal. There are no trials. Only Enforcers, Inspectors, and the Dominator. Commit a crime in your mind – and the Dominator will make sure you pay the ultimate price.
