Fantasy

This genre is exactly what you would think it would be about, magical worlds, monsters and magic powers. The series that are linked to this genre usually have great scenery, as they can be as colorful and unique as they want because it is all fiction. Fantasy genres are usually mixed with other genres such as Adventure, romance and Comedy

Example

An example of this would be the series “Fairy Tail”. Published in 2006, this story follows a 17-year-old girl named Lucy Heartfillia, who runs away from home to join the famous wizard guild in the land of Fiore, Fairy Tail. She is a celestial wizard who uses magical keys to summon spirits to fight; she also wields a whip which she uses to fight along side her spirits as she doesn’t see the spirits as mere tools, but partner in arms.

She is invited to join the guild by Natsu Dragneel, a member of Fairy Tail who travels the land in search of the dragon Igneel, his missing foster father. Natsu uses dragon slayer magic to fight; this magic is specialized to combat dragons, which, ironically, are only taught by the dragons themselves. Natsu has a cat-like companion named Happy who follows Natsu around trying to aid him whenever he can, this often causes Natsu more trouble than the first place.

After joining Fairy Tail, Lucy forms a team with Natsu and is later joined by the ice wizard Gray Fullbuster and Erza Scarlet, a wizard with the power to equip and un-equip armour and weapons at a lightning speed. Now, the four travel the lands to complete quests, fight monsters and even face other guilds. This series very interesting due to the dynamic fight scenes and background stories that each character has, this mixed with comedy makes this series a must watch.
