Fairy Tale Fairy Tail

Review –  Fairy Tail If you like Harry Potter, and also pretty creative hero stories, Fairy Tail is for you.  The anime itself is slow and lacks depth but it makes up for these short comings in creativity and physical comedy.  More than a handful of times I considered my neighbors while I laughed out loud.  This is a great watch for the casual viewer as there is no “one” plot line – it plays Read more [...]
