Hot-headed fire wizard Natsu and his team of high-powered pals are back! Harnessing the forces of dragon fire, ice, weaponry, and the zodiac, four young wizards from the infamous magical guild Fairy Tail team up. In season two the friends unite with other guilds to take on one of the darkest guilds in the wizarding world!
Running a marathon is not a spiriting exercise. If you try and race ahead in the opening minutes then you'll be sorry an hour later. But if you pace yourself you can last the race and make it exciting at the same time. Why the running anthology? Because I think that Fairy Tail is the anime and manga equivalent of a marathon. It seems kind of the same all the time but as you get through it, you begin to see the scenery change around you and you yourself have a different mood as your marathon goes on. Fairy Tail will ALWAYS be about Natsu and Lucy helping to trash sections of their world in their quest to save lives, destroy evil and earn money to party and pay the rent. But as the show goes on and their foes get harder and harder, we see their enemies strip away the normal parts of them, revealing that the cast of Fairy Tail is really as honest and forthright as they seem to be. Plus, the stripping away of their outer layers usually means the bad guys get an even hard drumming!
This release of Fairy Tail is finally, FINALLY on blu ray after over year being DVD only releases from Manga UK. The improved definition and sound make watching the show a hell of a lot easier. Manga UK have also committed to releasing the previous DVD-only volumes in new blu ray editions now that they have access to Funimation’s HD masters and discs. The extras on this blu ray however, replicate the DVD editions of earlier with Funimation actors and clean openings and closings plus some trailers. I’ve talked before about Fairy Tail commentaries and these are no better nor no worse than the previous ones.
