How did Fairy Tales become an Ecchi Series?

Fairy tail is a fight or battle anime. It is a series about some wizard children embarking on an adventurous journey. There is nothing ecchi over here.

But things change when the writer starts doing fan services. Moreover, these series become complete ecchi series in its OVA adaptations.

Ova series are uncensored series explicitly made on the demand of the audience. Therefore it is like a fanservice adaptation of a fairy tale.

Is Fairy tale an ecchi series?

An ecchi series is an anime or manga with a lot of inappropriate scenes. But there is nothing like that in Fairy tail.

Though the writer does some fan services quite now and then, that is not too erotic or inappropriate.

Moreover, Fairy tail takes the form of ecchi series in its OVA adaptations. As OVA adaptations go on uncensored and work on the demand of its audience, it contains many inappropriate scenes.

Fairy Tail: A Final Review

Like any other series, Fairy tail has its positives and negatives sides. Let us analyze each before deciding if fairy tail is a good anime to watch or not.

Backstories

Fairy tail has emotional background stories for the characters. This story seems genuine and convincing. One of the best examples is Zeref. Zeref can be seen as a most unique and tragic villain. After that, you won’t be able to hate him entirely.

Females character

This series has lots of strong woman characters. These are well-developed characters.

Variety of Cast

This series has lots of characters. Therefore you will get a taste of new characters and enjoy their stories too. And you will have an extensive list to choose your favourite character among them.

Abilities

Characters have extraordinary magical abilities. Say it is Luy who can summon beasts from a different world or Natsu with extraordinary Dragon slaying powers. Or others like Gray, who has ice powers, and many others.

Fight Scenes

This manga series is known for its fights scenes, and yes, no one will deny this.

Relation between characters

This series is all about friendship and bonds between characters. All members of the guild are treated as family members. They all support each other and are each other’s power.

Negatives

Cliched Scenes

There are many scenes in the pretty predictable anime version. The main character destroys the super-powerful enemy just like that, but this is for good so let it be.

Fanservice

These series contain lots of fanservice. So if you cannot handle the itchiness of this fanservice, this is undoubtedly not for you.

Power

Most of the time, you cannot tell which character is powerful than another.

Repetitive fight pattern

This series has repetitive fight patterns. I mean villain sounding all cool and seeming invisible, then overpowering main characters, then a speech of friendship and boom, the villain is destroyed.

Power-ups

Characters of fairy tail get a sudden power boost by their speech of friendship, and boom! The enemy gets destroyed even though that was seeming invisible a few moments before.

Music

The music of the anime doesn’t sound pleasing to many.

Conclusion

Well, it totally up to you whether you love Fairy tail or not. As a manga, it has the best storylines, characters development and fight scenes. But it is not appropriate for children under 12 years old.
