If you like magic and flying cats, then this anime is for you! You follow the characters of Natsu, Happy, Lucy, Grey, and Erza as they go on quests and fight dark guilds. Natsu Dragneel has the power of Fire Dragon Slayer Magic which allows him to use and eat fire. He was taught Dragon Slayer Magic by non other than an actual Dragon named Igneel, which suddenly disappeared 6 years ago on the year x777. Everyone in Fairy Tail has their own life problems that unfold eventually, even if it does take a while for each character to finally get background.
The animation for Fairy Tail wasn't too great to begin with but it got better after some time. The background music is top notch, and there is always the intense fight scenes, even if they are censored from the manga. Overall, if you like Shonen anime, but are not a One Piece-tard, this is an anime for you.
