About Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima.

During his journey to explore the Kingdom of Fiore, Natsu Dragneel, a dragon slayer wizard from the Fairy Tail guild, becomes friends with a young celestial wizard named Lucy Heartfilia and invites her to join Fairy Tail.

Lucy agrees and forms a team with Natsu and his cat-like partner, Happy. The team was later joined by other members: Gray Fullbuster, an ice wizard; Erza Scarlet, a magical knight; and Wendy Marvell and Carla, another dragon slayer and Exceed duo.

Just a correction on your season 9. You wrote 313-228 when you meant 328. Just a quick edit. Thanks for the list though and the time you put into figuring it out! Just what I was looking for!

Hi!! I just wanted to know if there’s a specific place that Fairy Tail Zero fits in? I know its based on Mavis and the founding of Fairy Tail but i don’t know if it fits into the plot anywhere? Thank you !!

Hi Morgan!

Fairy Tail Zero takes place before everything else and so its events don’t really fit into the plot. It’s like the history of Fairy Tail. If you watch it before anything else, it won’t spoil the main events but skipping it won’t have an effect on main story as well!

Hope this helps!

Slight correction, Wendy doesn’t arrive in Magnolia/join Fairy Tail until episode 69 so I believe it would make more sense to put that episode before OVA 1-3.
