First Look for the anime adaptation of Fairy Tail.

Well, almost a lot knows about the manga already, but I’ll still do the usual wiki-pasta for those who are new to Fairy Tail.
A young sorceress, Lucy Heartfilia, travels to the land of Fiore to join the magical Fairy Tail Guild. Along the way, she meets Natsu Dragneel, a teenage boy looking for a dragon named Igneel. Shortly after their meeting, Lucy is abducted by Bora of Prominence, who was posing as Salamander of Fairy Tail, to be sold as a slave. Natsu rescues her and reveals that he is the real Salamander and has the skills of a Dragon Slayer. He offers her membership into the guild, which she accepts, and they become a team performing various missions for the Fairy Tail guild.
Aya Hirano as Lucy Heartfilia

Katsuyuki Konishi as Luxus Dreher
Mariya Ise as Levi Macgarden
Ryoko Ono as Mirajane
No qualms about the animation yet, since it looks quite alright in the short twenty seconds there. I won’t be worrying about that though, since the Animation Production is a team-up of A-1 and Satelight.
I’m checking this one out. Not sure if I’ll blog it though since I easily get bored on mainstream shounen series, not to mention that I had already been lost in the manga, so yeah. It still depends on how it interests me as an adaptation.
Not happy about the voice acting to be frankly honest. I thought Aya Hirano will bring a sultrier vibe as Lucy, but instead we have some annoying high-pitched voice. I’m still excited to hear the ever-awesome Sayaka Ohara (Beatrice in Umineko, Yuuko in xxxholic) voice Erza Scarlet.
Catch Fairy Tail on October 12.
