Re: Anime Discussion Thread
Fairy Tail is a poor man's One Piece. Fact.
I feel it has nothing special of its own with it burrowing multiple elements from the big three shounen series plus a little magical girl thrown into it for one of the female characters. I understand something completely original is hard to come by but seriously you have a guy that looks like Ichigo from Bleach, Boa Hancock from One Piece and a crossbreed of Naruto and Luffy as the main protagonist. Hell I would call Natsu, the protagonist, Luffy's brother from another father who coincidentally is also called Dragon like Luffy's dad.
The only thing different is that they are "wizards" and has Irish inspired background music.
