There was a time when I first heard of Fairy Tail.
“What a dumb looking show,” I thought, ” But, Rie Kugimiya has a main role, so I will watch it…..wait a second….she’s voicing a cat? So is she just going to make ‘nyan’ noises the whole time? What a waste! What a dumb looking show.”
God, how stupid I was. Stupid as hell. As IF they would cast the great Rie Kugimiya and limit her to making Nyan sounds. how idiotic can I get? The main character looked a lot like Luffy from One Piece (in fact, all of the art did, despite the fact that both manga are written by complete different people). For some reason, this threw me off…..again.
The art in One Piece made me not want to watch One Piece. Finally, I watched it. Now it’s one of my favorite anime ever.
The art in Fairy Tail made me not want to watch Fairy Tail (though not as much as One Piece). The name “Fairy Tail” also had something to do with it. And the fact that one of the main characters was a cute cat (kind of childish). Finally, I watched it.
And so Fairy Tail is pretty good. Yeah it’s a bit childish, kind of your typical shonen, but it’s entertaining, has a good cast and good characters, and so far, (11 episodes) I like it. I’ve heard a couple people kind of poop on it, and I’ve heard other people absolutely praise the shit out of it, and for me I think it’s closer to the praise side, for one reason only:
Rie Kugimiya make me soooo Happy.
I expected to hate her performance in this anime. I did not look forward to it at all.
“She’s voicing a cat? Why did she have to be in this show I really don’t want to watch it.” – were my thoughts initially.
But once again, she shows me why she’s my favorite seiyuu. Happy is arguably her funniest character, aside from Kagura.
Here’s why: Kagura is kind of…..out there. She says things that sometimes have no relation to the subject at hand. To me, she epitomizes the humor of Gintama in her character. Her character is always serious, but still says things that completely contradict her general mood.
Happy is similar. Happy is…for lack of a better word….completely spontaneous, unfocused (like has ADD), forgetful, and fucking retarded in such a great way that whenever he’s got lines, it’s the best part of the show. For example (not the best of examples though):
One second, Happy is all in, not gonna give up, then, two seconds later, happy gives up. As I said, not a good example, but trust me, Happy makes this show awesome. I feel like even kluxorious, who doesn’t really like Rie Kugimiya cuz she’s not smart like that, would like Rie Kugimiya in this role. Of course, her life is far too crazy right now…
Fairy Tail = I like it!
As you may have seen, my post count has gone down again, that’s because I’ve been spending all my time watching anime too many shows.
mORE SUTFF: I finnaly startded watching arrested developnment and it’s awesome. im’m aslo a litle drunk and at home alone woweo I’m a loser or what ehwnever.
