it's not "who do you think the main character is?" the main character IS lucy.


May I ask why?


the story is more centered around lucy than natsu. even though natsu does fight most of the big battles, he is still a supporting character. it tells more about lucy's life and family than natsu as well.

When I think of Fairy Tale, I think of Natsu as being the main character but I think it's supposed to be Lucy.

Take out the first 4 episodes and that last filler arc, when has the story ever centered around Lucy? It's centered around the guild. And as for her life and family, her mom died and she had daddy issues (don't see anything noteworthy there ). Compare that to Natsu and the Igneel affair which seems to be the basis and the ultimate plot for the whole show.

It depends on what you think a main character is. Lucy is a Supporting Protagonist. Basically meaning, that while the story doesn't revolve around her per se, it is told from her perspective. So if you see the 'hero' as the main character then it would be Natsu, if you see the main character as the person who acts as the eyes of the audience then it is Lucy.

The story is about Fairy Tail from Lucy's perspective. Since Natsu is Lucy's boyfriend, she talks about him a lot, but she's really telling us about her own experiences, so she's the main character. There's a male narrator voice, but it's pretty clear that Lucy the writer has written about all this.

Sry to ruin some peoples Image of Fairy tail but it is just a rewright of an older anime just with new art work and has the same plot they even have some of the old charters in it. And Lucy Is the main charter in fairy tail.

The main character is Lucy. While Natsu plays the role of the hero, the story is taken from the perspective of Lucy. The story telling is similar to Haruhi Suzumiya where Haruhi is the focus of the plot; however, Kyon is the main character directing the story. I can't particularly think of any other shounen series that takes such an approach, which is partially why I find Fairy Tail so interesting in the first place.

I also can't agree that Natsu has a more developed back story than Lucy. In fact, Natsu probably has the least back story out of their entire team.

Since this is a ripoff of One Piece,

If Fairy Tail is a rip-off of One Piece, then One Piece is also a rip-off of the countless series that came before it such as Dragonball. It is as similar to DB as FT is to OP. Depending on how you look at it, lots of similarities or very few - the same in both cases.

How much it earned or how successful it may be doesn't means it didn't take ideas from others. There is very few series, not just from anime, that is truly original.

Besides her mom dyeing and her daddy issues, what else is there?

That's a fairly summarized form of her development. You listed points, but the fact of the matter is they actually expanded on those points of her back story. We know Natsu is looking for Igneel, and he has some very vague connection to Zeref, but that is literally it. They have not delved any further into those points. Not even Natsu seems to remember these details, so what is there to go on? All of the other characters have been touched on, but Natsu's character is still a mystery.

I know your butthurt at the moment. But it's not. Thanks :D



Why would I be?
One Piece Film Z just earned 3.1 billion yen in 10 days.

What has this Fairy Tail accomplished besides ripping off a masterpiece?




So what if Natsu is based off Luffy. Luffy is based of Goku, so does that make One Piece a rip off of Dragon Ball Z

They have not delved any further into those points... YET! The Igneel and Zeref affairs seem to be the whole show's back story, let alone Natsu's. You know it's coming and you know it's gonna be big. And again, did I miss a Lucy episode?
