Fairy Tail is a very enjoyable fantasy drama anime series. The video quality of the North American blurays is quite good. The Japanese audio is good quality, and the subtitles are quite decent for those who don't know enough Japanese. The English dub is not spectacular, but for the most part, the voice casting was well done and the va's manage to put some emotion into at least some of their lines. As I had already seen the fansubbed episodes, I listened to these discs in English, and wasn't repulsed. There are only 12 episodes per set (8 on disc 1, 4 on disc 2), so the cost is a little high, but to have it on bluray, it was worth it. Amazon is usually high-priced but on this volume, with free shipping it was competitive with the US site from which I buy most of my dvds and blurays (dvdpacific). Sets 1-4 (episodes 1-48) are available. Hopefully another 48 are licensed soon, but I might wait next time to see if they are repackaged with 2 or 4 sets in 1 (24 or 48 episodes) at a reduced price. Otherwise, it would take up too much space and cost too much. The dvds included were a waste for me; I would rather have double the blurays and double the episodes in that space. I considered taking just the blurays from the four sets and putting them in two of the cases, and putting the dvds way somewhere else.
I gave this only 4 stars because of the money and space wasted by the dvds. I'd give 5 if there were a bluray-only release.
