I didn't write this, but I might as well have.
As a lot of you may know, I just started watching Fairy Tail recently, and I sort of am totally in love with it!!! But I didn't want to love it, and I didn't even want to watch it for a really long time.
Well, like that person wrote above, its SO long. Now, I don't have a problem with Bleach or Naruto necessarily, but I don't typically watch ANYTHING that crosses over like 40 episodes. I just can't do it! I like conclusions & getting to the end too much to deal with it, and I thought that I'd feel the same frustration I feel with longer shows with Fairy Tail.
I also just....didn't think I'd like it? I don't know why, but nothing about the anime or what I saw about it initially made me think I'd enjoy it.
I'm happy to say I was totally 100% wrong!!!
Fairy Tail isn't as silly as I thought it was. Sure, it's funny, there's jokes, there's a lot of fanservice-y romance stuff (don't argue with me on this lol, there is!) and there's a lot of fighting....which isn't really my style of anime. But somehow, all these things come together and I love it!
Probably because of all the LOVE.
Yep, LOVE. That's why I think I like this show so much. It's great to see people just caring so much for each other, and supporting each other through so much. I want to be this kind of person in my life & have these kind of caring relationships, so I think I can really connect to that.
Also, I'm pretty sure I was born to be a celestial mage. So there's that.
Anyways....I love Fairy Tail!!!
