Does it? I've seen alot of anime like this so far (I'm in the 2nd arc) and my friends who keep talking about it don't give me any hope in any true story originality. So far it seems like it's just a reskin of alot of other anime (some for the 80's even). So are any of the arcs actually original in their story, or just another "rewatch the same story in another setting" deal? I will watch it eventually to see what they do to mix the stories up compared to other anime, but so far, I don't see any reason to put it on my "OMFG MUST WATCH NONSTOP, HAVENT SEEN THIS STORY BEFORE" list.

I tried to watch it for about 17 episodes, but did not pique my interest to go on. My bro saw till about 140 episodes but was saying it never got serious. But i guess many people like it as it seems so popular.

originality? if anything the series is compared to its predecessor, rave, fairy tail is good and the manga arc was probably the best arc of last year shonen wise, it may not be of your liking but I really liked FT, the current arc of the anime (filler) is probably the worst filler/shit ever, but the manga is really good, so its your choice

I "watch" this series. As in I have it streaming in the background while I do other things because I got tired of the series and caught up with the manga but I sure as hell have better things to do than actually watch the series. No, the arcs don't get much better. It's all fairly recycled stuff. If you want something exciting or different, go watch shorter, non-shounen friendship battle anime/manga.

Lol same. Even if I run into a boring arc, I push through it because I'd rather have episodes of my favorite beloved wacky characters rather than dropping it or having the show/manga end.

But in all seriousness, I'm not sure if the arcs are original or not. I think story telling has gone a long way so not much is original these days. It does get better though. I do think that the friendship/"our guilds bond is greater than blood bonds" talk do serve a particular meaning. All those friendship moments have built up over the course of the story and now in this current manga arc, shits about to go down. This arc, in my opinion, has the greatest plot twist&original content in all of Fairy Tail. So to answer your question, yes it does.

i mean nothing is original but i guess it does have as much or more originality than most other anime and besides you dont watch fairy tail for the story primarily you watch it for the amazing characters

and dont forget fairy tail is about a having a fun adventure and some serious shit does go down later

No.

Every single Arc of Fairy Tail got Recycle villains, the action is boring because ''Nakama Power'' is overdone millions times.
Also the pacing of Fairy Tail is way slower than One Piece.

Natsu is a Gary Sue character because he never lose.

There is nothing new under the sun. If you are a voracious consumer of stories, like I am, you will learn that this is especially true in storytelling. Everything can be compared with something else. It's usually in the details not in the basics (like plot) that things become fresh.

Personally, I really enjoy Fairy Tail. Mostly I'd say what draws me to it is the characters, the spirit of the guild and its members and the music. I am drawn to the characters and I really enjoy their relationships and interactions. No, Natsu and Gray and their whole fire vs. ice thing is far from original. I don't care. I find them enjoyable. Erza is easily one of the most badass female characters ever and I love her. I think the whole spirit of Fairy Tail and their "friendship is the best thing ever" ideals are charming and uplifting. And the music is just awesome.

That said, I'm not watching the latest anime only arc because after a while I get sick of the filler. I'll start watching again when they get back to the manga. I hear the Tartarus arc is pretty cool.

When fairy tail 1 arrived at the magic games and the dragon stuff I was like "Holly sheet" lest see finally Igneel, then season was over , after the re launch of it, Igneel who the heck was that again? I mean the arc was over then, bad spirits? I will resume in new arc if tuff have gotten serious.

yes it does has an excellent plot but unlike one piece fairy tail doesn't throw hints everywhere this is the reason why it is hated. All the arcs are connected and a lot is revealed in the godly amazing tartaros arc and thats where the story takes a turn.

That can be said about most protagonists in an action series. They rarely, if ever, lose. And while I'm way behind on the series, Natsu did lose to that owl guy in the Tower of Heaven arc.

Fairy Tail is the beer and pretzels of the anime/manga world.

You know exactly what you're getting, you've had it before, and its not the greatest sure but its not putting on any airs about that. Nor is it asking you for much in the way of commitment, just sit back and enjoy the show because stuff is about to blow up. Watch it because you like some of the character or how they interact with each other, or that occasional nugget that's totally awesome like Lucy saving the world.

Or just Erza. Who makes everything better because she's just that awesome
