Title: Fairy Tail
Author: Hiro Mashima
Publication Date: 2006
Genres: Manga, Fantasy
Number of pages: 198

Fairy Tail follows Lucy, a wizard who uses keys to summon beings who assist her in battles. She meets Natsu, who uses fire magic and Happy, a flying cat. We follow Lucy, Natsu and Happy in various adventures and we are introduced to a wizard guild, called Fairy Tail.

Volume 1 presents the different characters and their goals. There were a few places where the dialogue felt disjointed but as this is a translated work that is understandable. The main issue I had with this book was the portrayal of females. Females were shown in an objectifying way and this is something that can be annoying in mangas.

Other than that, I actually did like the stories within this first volume and the characters are intriguing. I am especially interested in the story of Natsu but I will not go into that because I do not want to spoil too much of the story.

Overall, if you like manga then you will likely enjoy this book. I have the second volume so I am going to read that soon.

Rating: 4/5 stars
