    Its a popular anime, and has grown to be my favourite anime, and I have absolutely no idea why this would happen.

    I'm kinda pissed, shit like naruro with a million fillers gets to carry on. There's so much more manga material to get to as well.
    I hope this just a short break, but fuck. I'm disappointed. This was good compared to the shit they air.
    Damn it Japan.

    My only experience with Fairy Tail was with a friend who'd bring his laptop to every party and watch it through the night. Every. damn. time. Took one look, went, "Wut", and kept on going.

    Good riddance.

    I'm a fan of the manga... okay fine... I WAS a fan.
    It just wasn't my cup of tea :/
    Don't really think it's the end, I think the manga will still continue (then again the Daimonto Enbu (or however you spell it) arc is going towards its climax next week)

    FT imho is one of the better long-running shounen animes out there. Arcs do not take 600 years to tell the story and they do not have fillers which makes you want to bleach your brain.

    I assume this to be more of a hiatus just like the one Bleach has (or rather D-Gray Man in this case) because the buffer between the original source and the anime itself has gotten way too close. I guess this is the better of the alternatives. They could have easily gone down the Naruto route and give us fillers before the GMG arc. And seeing that the manga has not even completed that said arc (and I doubt it will even by the end of the month with only 4 more chapters), even pulling a Soul Eater OMGWTFFFUUUUUUUU will be difficult.

    @Gahars: Considering the fact that you don't actually watch the show yourself, why would you seem so pleased that it's gone? O___o That friend of yours will probably just find yet another show to replace it.

    thats kinda dumb, as they still have enough material to finish the games for the anime as well.

    considering they just end it halfway through, it seems like a complete cancel. just pray they dont pull a HxH or Full Metal Alchemist on the show and you have to watch everything again until they make it to new material.

    Dude was like a wild party animal. When he really wanted to kick things up a notch, he'd bring one of the Naruto fighting games and blaze through the story mode.

    Shit was mad crazy.

    I may not be able to smell, but at least I have taste.

    The world that never was
    My two friends will be very upset about this DX They loved Fairy Tail to bits and they would be all fanatics about it when we discuss anime, and I would still not understand a word X'D

    I can attest to Gahars' claims, it looked equally retarded through my eyes.

    It was easily one of the top 4.
    With One Piece, Bleach and Naurto.
    At least they havent said anything about the manga, i can at least carry on in FT that way :/
    Looks like Magi will have to be my new fairy tail

    I watch it but I absolutely understand why someone would hate it. Anime straight out lies to your face. Erza? Oh she's strongest wizard in the guild? Laxus and Mystogan? Ooooh they're the strongest in the guild. Oh and we have Gildarts who was on a mission for 3 years. He's the strongest wizard btw.
    Like what the hell?

    Don't even get me started on the annoying characters and their "gimmicks". A guy who yells all the time, a guy who says "actually" in every sentence, an old hag who always spins her hands and other people... etc. Oh and we have the tournament who changes the rules every day it seems lol

    Am I going off topic? Sorry, I needed to vent.

    Doesnt every anime do that.
    Seriously.
    And Erza was never called strongest, Laxus called himself the strongest, Mystogan was never called the strongest. Gildarts IS the strongest
    Every anime has characters who yell stupid phrases, and the tournament has different events of course the rules for each will be different.
    Its ok to vent, at least vent and be right

    I rewatched the episodes, they definitely said she's the strongest in early episodes.

    And about the rules, I didn't mean the events. It's when they said guilds form teams and 8 teams who finish the race first are in. All fine and cool but all of a sudden Fairy Tail has 2 teams? That was never stated. And how come number one guild Sabertooth didn't get at least 2 teams in? lol
    Also each team has 5 members but it turns out they can just switch out their members and put someone else as they damn well please. Wendy was registered, then Elfman just took her place and then they switch him out. Other teams did the same. What else? They can call for help if they're in a pinch?

    And this is gonna sound dumb but if Gray turns out to be an Ice Dragon Slayer, I wouldn't be surprised one bit. Fairy Tail just loves pulling off stunts like that.

    They said she was the strongest FEMALE.
    I believe.
    Also, they clearly stated that any number of teams for a guild can enter, they also clearly stated that Sabertooth is only a good guild because of the current 5 members in the GMG, as show by how easily natsu 1 hit one of their top 10. Also having 1 substitute in a competition makes perfect sence, like football and other sports.
    Everything makes sense, you;re just being pessimistic coz you dont like it.
