    This image is from the manga. The character designs in the anime look a little less "One Piece like"

    So far it reminds me very much of One Piece with mages replacing pirates. Similar sense of humor and action. Very much enjoyed the first episode and think this will replace Bleach in my weekly viewing since that has turned to crap.

    I love the character designs since I'm a huge one piece fan. I'm just afraid of watching it and going "wow, this feels like one piece with a different face."

    I'm totally down to follow it if it feels really original. I'll just watch them as they come out and report back :coold:

    I am a big fan of One Piece as well. The characters look less like One Piece in the anime than the manga, but it has the same comedic timing for sure and I love that. So far it is just similar enough to One Piece to maybe draw in fans of that, but different enough to not just be a rip off. Some really good voice work as well with Aya Hirano (of Haruhi Suzumiya fame) as Lucy, Tetsuya Kakihara(Simon from TTLG) as Natsu and Rie Kugimiya (Nagi from Hayate no Gotoku) as Happy. It was a bit strange at first hearing Nagi's voice coming out of a blue talking cat but by the end of the episode it grew on me.

    I hope they don't do crappy ass fillers. Though considering that unlike Bleach, Fairy Tail seems to have coherent plot progression and the like, any fillers there are will probably be pretty decent :x:

    I'm pretty sure they will do fillers. Though, it probably won't be complete arcs. It's fairly easy for them to take on missions that aren't relevant to the overall plotline.

    I really didn't like, the animation sucked.
    the manga is cheesy and silly in a good way, the anime is just overly silly

    I'll give it a few more episodes but I am dissapoint

    I also hate how it lost a lot of the distinct style of the manga. The same thing happened to Rave Master, it had that cool unique style of art in the manga, but then the anime was stylized like generic moe anime shit. I'll keep watching though :hs:

    The only reason I can think of why they would change the art style would be to distance themselves a bit from One Piece. I would guess that they did not want to simply be seen as just a knock off.

    The change doesn't bother me that much, but I only read a few chapters of the manga so I was not really a huge fan or anything. I could see where it would bother the people who are big fans of the manga.
