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 '...

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: ...

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 become ...

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

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 ("...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

According to Wikipedia, pain isn't one of the traditional senses. It's marked under non-traditional senses. I think that's the reason pain is NOT stolen together with tactile perception (well, I thought, before I looked deeper, pain is connected to the touch sense, but it seems not). Traditional senses: Sight Hearing Taste Smell Touch These are 5 base ...

Laxus and Cobra are Second generation Dragon Slayers, so they weren't taught Dragon Slayer Magic by a Dragon. Hence, Thunder and Poison Dragons are never mentioned (moreover, they possibly do not exist at all). Those from the second generation of Dragon Slayers have had Dragon Lacrima implanted into their bodies, granting them the ability to use Dragon ...

In chapter 436, Zeref mentioned that he must have been cursed by Ankhseram, the God of life and death, for researching resurrection magic (R-System, Eclipse Gate, and later Summoning Magic). One of the side-effects of this curse was that he became immortal. As mentioned by Denslat, this is indeed metaphorical. At this point it is not proven whether a deity ...

They're not a couple. They are friends. I live with another dude. We pay 400 dollars each to rent an apartment close to our university. And I assure you we're not a couple. Wendy and Chelia have always been stated to be friends. Also, one of the last chapters has disclosed and confirmed that Wendy has never done anything sexual with another human being (...

Since yesterday (2013-12-28) when the newest chapter in the manga was released, there was apparently a page which indicated that the anime will start airing again in April 2014. [Source]

I would like to add on to Qynn's Answer: In the most recent chapter of Fairy Tail, Chapter 400:

To add to the list, Igneel: most likely derived from Ignis, which means fire. Grandeeney: She's the skydragon, named Grandine in Japanese. This translates to hail from Italian, which might explain the relationship Acnologia: "Acno" is a Greek word used to reference aging. The word "Logia" is a Greek word from New Testament scholarship that translates ...

One needs to possess the Demon Factor to use Satan Soul. Mira said it herself: It hasn't been explained if she already has it since birth or not.

This is Cosmos, who first appears in chapter 307 of the manga. She is one of the Garou Knights. The image that you have is a colored image of her from Deviantart by SeireiART. She has plant magic, which is why the Deviantart picture of her refers to her as the Flower Executioner. In chapter 308 she creates a giant flower.
