    This thread is why I believe that the fairy tail series is not very well done and how the creator Hiro Mashima has let the series down with his poor decisions.

    The first issue is the lack of character development how can the main character not change in a emotional way for 400 chapters he has no sense of responsibility or moral maturity. All of the characters are like how they were in the first episode it's just that now they are all friends.

    The second issue is that nothing bad happens to the fairy tail members they just happen to stay alive even the crappy side characters that nobody cares about or are even relevant or useful.

    The third issue is that they have gone so off track about the plot natsu doesn't even look for igneel the whole reason why we meet him at the start. lucy had a chance to get all the celestial spirit keys and she hasn't even done it.

    I think that this is enough ranting to start.

    Sounds like most animes with over 50 episodes.

    To be fair, Naruto, Luffy, and Goku all do undergo major changes: Naruto goes from a hyperactive pain in the ass to a bitchy, arrogant pain in the ass, Luffy gets his ass kicked a dozen times and realizes he's UP as fuck, so he faces reality and fucks off for two years to train, and Goku becomes a soulless monster obsessed with fighting and getting stronger until he finally abandons his family to train the reincarnation of the very abomination that nearly slaughtered them all.

    Character Development: It ain't all sunshine and roses.

    Not really because luffy matured and gained a sense of responsibility and vegeta from dragon ball z went from villain to a anti hero yet in fairy tail none of the main characters change

    ----

    I also forgot to mention how the writer uses fan service to distract readers from how poorly written the story is.

    Okay, now the fanservice thing is something EVERY Shonen anime is guilty of. Even well written anime like One Piece are DROWNING in it.

    True, bit compared to Naruto and even OP, Fairy Tail is definetely over the top. Lots of episodes (especially OVAs) and recently a whole chapter having fan service. And it's not a small amount of it, either. XD
    One piece has fan service, but it's not that abusive though.
    Fairy tail, well when they invent stripping magic as an attack in a major plot, it screams fanservice. XD

    That's true but here it feels less subtle because none of the characters are perverts


    Than he goes into the next fight with the same attitude when other characters get demolished they train and become more serious

    Lemme clear one thing up real fast: I've never seen Fairy Tail; I'm just offering comparison with the other big Shonen anime. Honestly, for the most part, I think long Shonen is crap. I loved DBZ as a kid, but looking back, it aged REALLY badly the longer it went on. Naruto is just whiny, horribly written shit, Bleach is a trainwreck of godawful pacing, wasted characters, and atrocious power balances, and One Piece is the one solid, if still flawed(hate the art style and it's slow as hell sometimes) series currently airing.

    Even if One Piece is drowning in fan service, Fairy Tail is far worse than that.
    Also, the humor feels forced and the characters make me constantly want to slap them because of their stupidity.
    I didn't really watch the anime (my younger brother did), but I read the manga till the tournament where they have stupid trials between guilds (an Assassin's Creed-like contest and worse...).
    It really felt to me as if the writer had completely run out of ideas at this point.

    Perhaps,but the humor isn't forced OR abusive, unlike Fairy Tail. XD

    Well DBZ after the cell saga toriyama wrote to the fans favour with the over powering of goku and gohan becoming bad.
    One Pieces's slow pacing is due not wanting to go on filler and to keep some sort of distance to the manga. especially seen as the manga writer is in hospital and I like the art style. To be fair to bleach it did have the biggest plot twist ever

    It did. There's something that keeps Bleach interesting, despite some flaws...
    Same for Naruto... I actually find the story imteresting. Not a masterpiece BUT, interesting nonetheless.
    It all began when they introduced the character Pain... XD

    I don't get the point with One Piece. It has no plot at all.
