I really enjoy FairyTail. The manga's MUCH better, though. But that should be for you to decide. It's a nice, laid-back pace, with everything much less serious, but there are still some really good and deep moments. And it's always fun to watch Erza kick butt.
I fell in love with the manga when it was just a sample from bones when they were demoing their new releases. I instantly got sucked in i love the emotion the humor the action. despite everyone tacking on that his previous failure rave master i think this makes up for it. I love the anime as well i not so much in love with the english voice actors but I've always watched subbed. Even the fillers are awesome. I high recommend watching the anime after you read the manga .
