To all Fairy Tale lovers....
I have heard and seen many good things about it, but with 200 or 300 episodes or so, I really am not sure if I should make the commitment. I am the kind of anime watcher who if I invest in just watching the first season or ten episodes or so, I wont stop. The reason why I haven't given it a try in the past is I didn't want to end up starting and having to stop. I am currently watching, Food Wars!; Boruto; Kino's Beautiful world; Magus Bride; MMO Junkie; and Classroom of the Elite. The majority of these I am caught up on and watch the simulcasts as they air weekly, so... I have time for another more long-term anime. I was thinking about perhaps rewatching Stein's Gate, or my favorite anime Hunter x Hunter. But I also like new. So... for you fans out there, why should I watch it? What is it really about, what does it teach you? Why do you recommend it? I would like to read your thoughts before deciding. Thank you!!!

If you like multi-dimensional characters with reasons behind why they act the way they do, fun humor mixed in with great drama and lots of heart warming moments then yes you should watch it. It also has the best shounen MC there is. As for what it teaches you most of the typical shounen stuff but also some things you wouldn't see in others such as how sacrifice can lead to pain and not celebration, how fear allows you to know your own weaknesses in order to become a better person among other subversions of typical shounen stuff.

Also it actually does the power of friendship thing right since there's an in-universe explanation for it from the beginning. And the villains can do it to so it's fair game. And most importantly lots of strong female characters, which is most of the fanbase favorite parts.

A while ago another guy asked the same question and I recommended for him to get to the Tower of Heaven arc and then decide if he wanted to continue. He did and ended up loving it so I shall say the same to you.

Hm, let's see One Piece and HunterXHunter have awful pacing, terrible chemistry, literally no character development and a myriad if plot holes. Lmao they're both shit-tier if the hugest calibur. Meanwhile Fairy Tail has actual good writing. It's clear you two are on some kind if drugs lol.

Yeah One Piece is garbage honestly. And I watched around 100 episodes, I wouldn't waste my time with that one if I were you. None if those episodes were really worth it.

No it's clear by your typos and horrible syntax that you are the one on drugs.

Whether an anime is good is subjective to the viewer. Nothing objectively makes One Piece Trash and FT TEH BEST THING EVAR.

You claiming other people are on drugs solely cus they like something you don't shows a level of immaturity and pretentiousness that's usually found in middle school/high school classrooms.

Please find something constructive to say next time.

AHAHAHAHA your crying about how people are wrong about thinking FT is garbage because they have only watched a few episodes and you turn around and say One Piece is garbage while revealing you only watched a tiny portion of the anime. And before anything actually gets good, which is why you believe that.

Hypocritical and pretentious hmmmmmmmm you must be like 15 years old.

If you told the OP to watch a little more and maybe he will actually like it when it gets good. Then the exact same will go for one piece.

OP don't listen to this nooblet once you get to the Water 7 Arc One Piece picks up and gets amazing. It will blow FT out of the water seven times over if you give it a shot.

Yea I mean I would love to give OP a try, I have always heard great things about it, FT too to an extent, not the same as One Piece. I just think that given the scale, size and scope of the series it is a major commitment! lol I am not the biggest Shonen fan to be perfectly honest, the good ones are unforgettable and unmistakable for their mark in the anime universe, but many, all too many are just cookie-cutter, and not all that interesting or engaging. Just a lot of fluff out there. And this is coming from a Naruto fan lol. But then again I started watching Naruto in 2005 so.... lol

I cannot accurately guess your enjoyment of such a show based on your watch list, really. Personally, in my opinion, while other shows beat you over the head with lessons on the power of friendship, Fairy Tail goes beyond bludgeons one to death with like a curmudgeon with a cudgel. I found it completely irritating. I also found Classroom of the Elite to be distasteful and aimless, so our tastes may be different.

In any case, do you have an anime list I could view in order to come with an accurate assumption?
