Fairy Tail (vols. 1-2) by Hiro Mashima, translated by William Flanagan [in Bloomsbury Review]

Fairy Tail 1-2The first two volumes of one of Japan’s top 10 manga bestsellers make their Stateside debut. Join the over-the-top adventures of newly inducted magic-key-carrying wizard Lucy (did she have to be so Barbie-like? Please!), motion-challenged fire wizard Natsu, and his cat Happy who sprouts wings as necessary. The bad guys never had a chance. For the 13-plus audiences, but adults will have fun, too, checking out what their kids can’t get enough of.
