A manga written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima (who also did RAVE)
In the mystical realm of Earth Land, magic exists at the core of everyday life for its inhabitants, from transportation to utilities and everything in between. However, even with all its benefits, magic can also be used for great evil; therefore, to prevent dark forces from upsetting the natural order of things, there exists a system of magical guilds in the Kingdom of Fiore. Under the command of their respective guild masters, these guilds are made up of witches and wizards who take on various job requests to earn fame and fortune. One particular guild stands high above the rest in both strength and spirit, and its name is Fairy Tail.
In his quest to find his dragon foster father—Igneel—Natsu Dragneel, a fiery and reckless mage, and his partner Happy run into a young celestial mage by the name of Lucy Heartfilia, who reveals that it's her dream to become a full-fledged wizard and join the Fairy Tail guild. After rescuing her from an abduction attempt, Natsu offers her home in Fairy Tail. Now a member of the guild, Lucy teams up with Natsu and befriends fellow wizards Gray Fullbuster and Erza "Titania" Scarlet. Together, this motley crew set out on their many adventures, gaining many faithful allies and deadly foes along the way.
This series is often heavily mocked and handwaved due to being terrible.
There's even another manga called Buster Keel, which takes a lot from Fairy Tail and still ends up being a better manga.
Typical Fairy Tail Arc
Natsu/Lucy: HI WE'RE FAIRY TAIL AND WE'RE HAPPY YAY!!!
Bad Guy: MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I AM STR0NGER THAN ALL OF YOU!
*Fairy Tail gets their ass handed to them*
Natsu/Lucy: OH NO! LET'S DEFEAT THEM WITH FRIENDSHIP!
Bad Guy: OH SHIT, NOT THE FRIENDSHIP!!!
Natsu: NAKAMA PUNCH!!!
*Bad guy gets his ass handed to him in an instant*
Bad Guy: OH NO! THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING! THE SUPER POWER OF NAKAMA PUNCH IS TOO STRONG!
Standing in the Battledome
Fairy Tail is below any of the HST verses but above the likes of Boku no Hero Academia, Hunter x Hunter, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, and Nanatsu no Taizai.
Currently, Fairy Tail high tiers range from small city level - small island level+ with hypersonic+ - massively hypersonic speed. Top tiers are island level with 4 digit mach speeds.
The true top tiers are small country level. The series also has a wide variety of hax, including but not limited to Irene's BFR, Zeref and Dimaria's timestop, multiple intangibles, Brandish's shrinking and expanding, Acnologia's soul steal, Invel's mindfuck and more.
Also, believe it or not, the OBD once upon a time followed the increase in its power with great interest, as it was indeed a contender to surpass One Piece eventually, but now no one can even stand to follow the manga let alone watch its gradual increase in strength. Yes, it's that bad.
Still, it's a terrible verse.
