    Have you seriously decided to torture yourself? I mean, there is plenty of much better series.

    Chapter 1: Fairy Tail

    The first page of the chapter is a portrait of the handsome protagonist flashing a bright, confident smile. In the bottom right corner we see an adorable cat. The art is great and the character designs are interesting. FT is off to a good start.

    But then on page 4, nico robin appears. The character designs seem familiar to that of one piece. Still, this isn't an deterrent for me. Many manga look like Dragon Ball.

    -good gags along the way
    -brings up the theme that slavery is cruel and wrong

    Overall the first chapter is great. It gets us accustomed to the powers of the main characters, gives them both a goal they are striving towards, and wraps up with a nice battle.

    10/10 first chapter.

    I'll do more eventually.

    Chapter 2: The Master Appears

    Pretty funny chapter. Has a lot of brilliant gags, most notably Gray asking Lucy to borrow her underwear.
    However, FT is a huge bunch, which will later prove to make it more difficult to a) keep all of them relevant, b) keep all of them interesting, c) make all of them endearing.
    Also, I disagreed with the Master who encouraged all of them to do whatever they want. Lives could be lost if they don't show restraint. Doing whatever you think is right is selfish and irresponsible. The Master is also mean to a young boy who is worried about his father. The suck it up approach he has isn't something I'm fond of. I'm glad he got punched in the face for that.

    The narrative of being found in the forest by a kind foster parent reminds me a lot of Dragon Ball. They could have made the parallel less obvious. Copying art style is fine, but plot is not. Nevertheless, it provides Natsu an adequate origin and the source of his goal.
    Also, this page was great.



    The chapter ends with the start of a retrieval arc and the appearance of a perverted monkey monster. Seems interesting enough.

    Overall, it was a strong chapter, but not as good as chapter one. 8/10.

    EDIT: Also didn't like that Lucy got into FT so easily. This is her life's goal. Could have put down some conditions she had to fulfill in order to get accepted. That would have been more interesting. But so far, everything she's wanted has been given to her by Natsu.

    Chapter 3: The Salamander, the Monkey, and the Bull

    "Me no likes man, me likes woman ♥"
    -clearly this monkey is straight

    Punny cowman is punny.

    Those were the highlights of this chapter. FT's comedy is shining. However, the story telling is very didactic. There is a lot of telling instead of showing. Also, nothing exceptional happened. The threat is resolved. There is touching scene between the rescued father and his son. But other than that, the chapter felt flat even with the humour.

    Overall, this was an average chapter. 5/10

    EDIT: I also hope Lucy's helplessness in battle isn't a recurring theme.

    Chapter 4: Stellar Spirit of the Canis Minor

    Happy is very adorable when he's scratching Lucy's wall He also made he laugh a lot when he starts role playing as Lucy's master. XD
    Natsu getting kicked in the face for trespassing is priceless.
    Seeing the little guy from Rave Master is nice. He's another cute mascot character.

    Overall, this was a good chapter. It provides a nice starting point for the chapters come with two interesting twist. Also, seeing Natsu trick Lucy showed that he's not as one dimensional as he seems. He does have some intelligence. It made for a very good gag as well. 7/10

    Chapter 5: Day Break

    The mystery behind the book "Day Break" and why Melon wants it destroyed creates a lot of initial interest in this chapter.
    Duke Evaroo's questionable taste in women is hilarious.
    Later, it is revealed that Lucy was too dumb to hide her FT tattoo.

    Overall, it's an interesting chapter. 7/10

    Chapter 6: Infiltrating the Duke of Evaroo's Mansion

    Lucy wanting to hide Evaroo's shoes for revenge is pretty funny and cute. It shows how naive and innocent she is. But it highlights her intelligence level, or lack there of. Later on, she starts reading a book in the middle of confrontation and announces to the room that the book holds a secret which spikes Evaroo's interest. Before, he couldn't care less about the book, he was just being stingy. Also, she disregards her mission. I agree with Natsu. They should have burned the book immediately. Curiousity killed the cat, and we don't want Happy dead just yet.

    Don't care for the introduction of obvious fodder villains. The ugly maid brigade was more interesting.

    Overall, it's an okay chapter. 5/10

    Chapter 7: The Weak Point of a Mage

    "Can't handle transportation"
    According to Natsu, that's the weakness of a mage XD

    The brothers are over confident and underestimate Natsu. The plot development there seems very cliche and emphasizes their role as fodder villains serving the purpose of making Natsu look cool. The result is a one sided battle where Natsu uses an awesome looking flame attack to take down the bad guys. It's not very original, but it's well executed at least.

    Lucy finishes the book and Evaroo sneaks up through a wall and grabs her. He wants her to reveal the secret of the book. He looks like a creepy egg man. Lucy is obviously in danger and the chapter ends. It's a good cliffhanger.

    Overall, the chapter is just fine. There are highs and lows, but it's not bad. And the mystery of the book keeps the story interesting. 6/10

    Chapter 8: Lucy vs. the Duke of Evaroo

    This chapter was very preachy.
    Natsu showed up and helped Lucy win 50% of the fight which undermines the title of the chapter.
    The crab spirit has a very good character design. He's very interesting. I would like to see more of him.

    The conclusion of the chapter feels very rushed.
    Best part was finding out that gorilla maid is a key spirit, one named virgin at that XD

    Overall, it's a 5/10.

    Chapter 9: Dear Kaby

    There is a flashback that shows us the great writer's demise at the hands of suicide. It touches on a very dark theme, but the chapter is also lovely because we see that the father wrote letters to his son for 3 years under the tyranny of Evaroo. The son becomes overrun with regret as he gets older, and wishes he hadn't driven his already depressed father to suicide. In the end, a huge weight has been lifted from him and he's able to smile for the first time since his character has been introduced.

    Natsu's earnestness is shown when he refuses to receive any award for his services (not that they could afford to pay him anyway). We also get to see that he has a super sense of smell. He's shown to be pretty intuitive as well since he realizes Lucy has been hiding a novel she is writing. The chapter wraps up nicely on a high note.

    Overall, this is a great chapter. 10/10.
