This is the story of Lucy Heartfilia, a sorceress in the magical land of Fiore. Lucy's dream is to join the famous Fairy Tail guild and she is on her way to apply for membership. At a seaside town she befriends Natsu Igneel, a young man who gets incredibly motion sick on any form of transportation.

Soon after, Lucy is kidnapped by a man posing as Fairy Tail's famous magician, Salamander. He intends to sell her as a slave. But Natsu is actually the real Salamander. He uses powerful dragon flame magic, easily defeats the imposter and rescues Lucy.

This is an amusing show the whole family can enjoy. Keep an eye out for it on the small screen.

I LOVE...I repeat LOVE Fairy Tail.
And I thought the name was "Fairy Tail" not "Tale". The meaning behind is very complicated, but to keep it short it means: We don't know how fairies look like, so we don't know if fairies have tails, so it becomes a mystery. Therefore it means unlimited imaginatio
