Fairy Tail is an ongoing shounen manga series by Mashima Hiro that started August 23, 2006. A Fairy Tail anime, produced by A-1 Pictures and Satelight was created on October 12, 2009.

Fairy Tail follows the story of Lucy Heartfilia and the exploits of the wizard guild Fairy Tail. Lucy tends to team up with Dragon Slayer and fire wizard Natsu Dragneel, a talking blue cat named Happy, ice wizard Gray Fullbuster, and the most powerful female wizard in the guild, Ezra Scarlet with the power of requipping her weapons and armor.

The guild Fairy Tail is named Fairy Tail because of the mystery of whether or not fairies have tails. From episode 1.27 The Two Dragon Slayers: "No one knows if fairies have tails or not, or even if fairies exist at all. Thus the name signifies eternal mystery, eternal adventure..." (Guild master Makarov said to a young Natsu).

English-language Fandom

Currently, Fairy Tail is too big for Yuletide and thus ineligible for the rare fandom exchange, though it was eligible in 2009. There is a steady stream of fics posted on fanfiction.net.

Na Lu was number eighteen as one of the Top 20 ships "most reblogged" list in 2016 on Tumblr [1].

Fanworks

Tagalog-language (Filipino) Fandom

"Animax Asia started broadcasting the English dubbed version of the series on September 30, 2010, but due to lack of time, it was canceled after the 48th episode. It is still airing in some parts of Asia and in the Philippines, where they initially used the Hong Kong based English dub but are now using the original Japanese audio."[2] As a result, there are many Fairy Tail fics written in Tagalog and can be found on fanfiction.net.
