From Makarov's history based on Wikia: The guild was named 'Fairy Tail' as the eternal mystery behind whether fairies had tails or not, or if they even existed, was like an eternal adventure. So I guess the guild's (Fairy Tail's) purpose is to have a great adventure as if they are solving the mysteries about fairies.

The person (Well technically not people) you spotted are called "easter eggs". Src from here: fairytail.answers.wikia.com In every episode, at least once, a little creature is placed somewhere.... These creatures are known as "easter eggs", as they appear in the anime but serve no purpose. They are not part of the plot, nor an important factor in the ...

After episode 175 the production studio changed from A-1 Pictures & Satelight to A-1 Pictures & Bridge. Character designer change, before episode 175 character design was done by 'Aoi Yamamoto' after that by 'Shinji Takeuchi' and 'Toshihiko Sano'. Art director change, before episode 175 character design was done by 'Junko Shimizu' after that by '...

Introduction in first chapter Usually the main purpose of a manga is explained in the first chapter, being the introduction to the complete story. In that sense both Natsu and Lucy would be the main protagonists. Both Natsu, Lucy (and Happy) are introduced in the first chapter. Natsu, who is searching for Igneel, while Lucy wants to join Fairytail and ...

It seems some of their names have parts which relate to their nature: Weisslogia: Weiss or Weiß is German for "white". Sting performs White Dragon Slayer to produce beams of sacred light, so we can see how White factors into Weisslogia's name. Metalicana: Obviously, the use of Metal in its name reflects the Iron Dragon Slayer Magic Gajeel uses Skiadrum: ...

Not only Natsu, but every wizard having Dragon Slayer Magic is prone to motion sickness. During the Grand Magic Tournament, all four Dragon Slayers suffered from motion sickness, i.e. Natsu, Gajeel, Rouge, and Sting. It is also confirmed in the anime that, Laxus suffers from motion sickness as well. The only exception is Wendy, but considering that she has ...

Your question can be answered only in big spoiler as it is revealed in the next chapters. So... SPOILER ALERT

I don't think it is reference to anything specific since it's overly common whenever swords are (and sometimes when they aren't) involved in media. In general: it looks cool it's usually a show of triumph by combining display of: dominance (as other poses that make body "unwrap") combat impracticality (no one is doing this in the middle of it) ...

Since it is conventional for English-language anime-listing sites (e.g. MAL) to treat a break in airing as marking the end of one series and the start of another, you need some way to differentiate between the series that ended before the break and the one that started after. In the case of something like Naruto, the second part had a different title ("...

Lumen Histoire is located in a secret underground room in Fairy Tail's original building. This secret is only known by Fairy Tail's Guild Master and is passed on to the new Master successively. Purehito showed it to Makarov when he became Master. Years later, Makarov showed it to Gildarts Clive when he told him that he wanted him to be next Master of Fairy ...

Plagiarism is a legal crime and thereby its definition and how it is handled differs by nation (also, plagiarism and copyright infringement are two different things). For example, in the U.S., an illustration that draws upon previous works by others must be different enough that a specific source for it cannot be pinpointed and that multiple possible sources ...

Fairy Law seems to only works on people who are your enemy and is an area of effect type of spell. This spell seems to draw from the user's internal power. Fairy Glitter seems to be a single target type of spell. This spell seems to draws power from external sources (sun, stars, moon).

Mirajane didn't exactly lose her powers. As Märmîk Šhâh said, Mirajane probably lost the will to fight from being unable to protect her sister despite being S-Class and being there. She probably stopped using magic because of this and thus her powers waned from not being used. During the final Arc of Season 1, when Freed defeats Elfman, Mirajane's distress ...

First to dispell some misconceptions: I don't think that dragon slayers have any rules. Anyone can become a dragon slayer provided that he has a dragon to teach him, or he has dragon slayer lacrima to put in his body. Both are rare, thus there are not that many dragon slayers. I speculate that Lucy could learn to use Cana's cards. (Personally I think that a ...

He is mentioned. In chapter 119, Mystogan mentioned him to be the strongest of Fairy Tail and I quote: Mystogan: I have little interest in such things, but I would propose Gildartz. Laxus: Eh, he's no use... He ain't coming back. Presumably, Laxus knew Gildartz was undertaking the 100 year job involving Acnologia and had assumed him to have died, since ...

According to the Fairy Tail wiki, there are 18 Dragons who have been given a name. Dragons with titles: Igneel - The Fire Dragon King Metalicana - The Iron Dragon Grandeeney - The Sky Dragon Acnologia - The Black Dragon (The Black Dragon of the Apocalypse) Weisslogia - The White Dragon Skiadrum - The Shadow Dragon Zirconis - The Jade Dragon Atlas Flame - ...

The reason for this is censorship. Fairy Tail has a 'PG-13' age rating; most shows with this rating do not show gore. Another example of something they censored would be that in the manga, Gray Fullbuster is a smoker. They took this out in the anime because they were afraid it might influence children to think that smoking is cool. This can be seen in ...

Yes and no, some of the Fairy spells are distinctive to the guild, and the skills that can be used by outsiders are not easily learned/taught. This makes the likelihood of Fairy spells being used outside of Fairy Tail very unlikely. As for leaving members who know one or more of the 3 great spells, there is a rule which states: 1. You must never reveal ...

It is clearly explained in the same chapter (425), that he had taken part in Sabertooth's annual Saber eating competition. Without cover etc., it was explained on page 13, upper half, said by Minvera to Lucy. In the same chapter, two pages further, Libra had helped Sting with her magic to get thin again, so even if he had some use for the fat, it is ...

Celestial Spirit Magic is a type of Magic in which the user summons Celestial Spirits by opening their gates through the use of Celestial Spirit Gate Keys. These Keys are separated into two classes: the more common Silver Keys and the rarer Gold Keys. Keys for Celestial Spirits are counted in Units (collectively without regard of Gold or Silver), and a ...

In the very same chapter when Gajeel still didn't understand why did he get motion sickness, Sting said to Gajeel (in Chapter 276, page 11) that "Well then... You finally got accustomed for it, huh... To being a real dragon slayer. Congratulations. Newbie." We also know that dragon slayer magic can more or less change the user's body itself. So I assume ...

Yes, it is definitely starting. It was on a hault because the anime had nearly caught up with the manga. It will be coming anytime in 2014. The dates hasn't been revealed yet. This article from Crunchyroll has information about the return. So Fairy Tail is definitely returning with advanced animation and some more suspense :P ----UPDATE---- This year's ...

I think Zeref and Mavis had a thing. You know how Zeref said one day, that he realized the meaning of life and stopped all of his bad ways? Well, I think that day was the day Mavis died. Possibly killed by Zeref himself. He may have felt terrible and realized that he needed to be stopped. So as he awaits Natsu to get stronger, he stays near Mavis, enjoying ...

I think they can, but they just wouldn't gain any energy like they would from other sources, so it's just completely pointless. There have been points with dragonslayers in pretty tight pinches, and I'm pretty sure one of them would have at some point eaten their own magic if there were any point in doing so/ if it's even possible. I think Natsu was just ...
