Synopsis: THE WICKED SIDE OF WIZARDRY
Cute girl wizard Lucy wants to join the Fairy Tail, a club for the most powerful wizards. But instead, her ambitions land her in the clutches of a gang of unsavory pirates led by a devious magician. Her only hope is Natsu, a strange boy she happens to meet on her travels. Natsu’s not your typical hero–he gets motion sickness, eats like a pig, and his best friend is a talking cat. With friends like this, is Lucy better off with her enemies?
The artwork was perfect for the tone of the manga. It was a good balance between goofy and violent depending on the scene. The characters' expressions were fantastic and added to the humor. Lucy did have the stereotypical ginormous breasts that all graphic novel females seem to possess, but I liked her character too much to let this annoy me too much.
I definitely would recommend this manga. It was fun to read, fast paced, and kind of kooky- just like good manga should be! I think this series would appeal to males and females. The story line is full of action and some of the characters are kind of rough, but Lucy is a great female character that will charm any reader. I'd say more about "Fairy Tail", but it would get kind of repetitive. Just read it!
