It seems that the manga-ka of Groove Adventure Rave (Rave Master in the USA) has come up with a new manga, called Fairy Tail.

Just debuted in Shonen weekly in Japan, so I figure most here don't know about it, but I'm starting to kinda like it.

The first thing EVERYONE will notice about the manga--the artstyle.
I can't believe how much if looks like One Piece. o_O

The story itself is about mages (not exactly the kinds of mages with long robes or anything, more modern than that) and guilds and magic stuff.

Natsu kinda reminds me of Luffy too... hmm...

You should be able to find scanslations if you do a search on google or something. Most are available via IRC.

BTW, title page to show I'm not kidding about that One Piece thing-

This is kind of a heads-up, since I'm expecting this manga to hit the USA eventually, and it's getting kinda interesting, so I hope people check into it and give their opnions about it sometime.

you forgot about the guy who looks exactly like Ichigo.

But there's a reason this is called Bleach Piece.

Wow.

The art looks awesome.

And I see Ace, Luffy, That gambling chick from Rave, Smoker, Ichigo and Robin.

Wow.

I must read this. BF - help me out. :)

EDIT:

Wait, why the hell is the carrot nosed thing there?

The Nami look-a-like is the Rave chick. It's basically the same design.

This manga will now sell big.

Watch.

The next Bleach/Naruto/One Piece. It just will be.

I mean, it copies it's characters. The fans will flock.

It has a woman drinking beer from a barrel twice her size.

I know I'll be buying a copy.

I found the first three chapters...Whooo...I hope it's good.

If it isn't.

I cry with the art and look-a-likes.

I've heard of this, and if/when it comes to the U.S., I may check it out. Then again, I said the same for the Rave Master manga, but never did.

reason Rave/fairytail's creator's characters look like One Piece stuff is because he was once an assistant artist to Oda.

I heard of this but still don't know what the basic story is about.....-___-

First two chapters read.

Yes, if anything was to become the next 'Bleach' or 'Naruto' it's this.

It has the elements. One Piece has the pirate theme. Naruto the ninja. Bleach the supernatural theme. This has the magical theme with wizards/mages.

The artwork would fit with those three. The story also seems to mesh like that. From what I have seen, it's VERY good -

I must say I am intrigued. And who can't love the Ace look-a-like running around nude everywhere or the Robin look-a-like drinking beer, beer and more beer?

I think this is a great series but I think you shouldn't compare it to other mangas because all series are unique. Can't wait to read more.:)

I was looking through the manga thread and I stumbled upon this particular thread. It definitely caught my eye. XD

So, it has resemblance to some other shounen manga, eh? That's got me curious. Though, the link in the first comment isn't working for me and I can't seem to find info about it elsewhere. Does anyone have any other pictures of this to show?

The manga is nice and all, but I fail to see a plot. >.<

Thank you for the link, Zonic.

Um, does anyone know of a site where I can read the actual chapters for it?

We aren't allowed to post links for downloading chapters.
Although you should be able to find it really easily on google, though...

Plus, there's an MSN group where you can read some chapters without having to download them...

Oh, and you're welcome. XP

The title makes me want to read it.

Although that's kind of a bad reason, some manga/anime titles can be misleading on their title alone.

I'd have NEVER guessed what BLEACH was about for example.

It's a bit new so I'd best let things flesh out a bit before I know what I'm stepping into.

This manga is awesome btw.

If you're expecting something that copies every single popular fighting Shounen, then yes.
