Manga Monday #18: “Fairy Tail Blue Mistral” by Hiro Mashima

 

Fairy Tail Blue Mistral by Hiro Mashima (Amazon) (Goodreads)

If Fairy Tail was a massive cake, full of detailed decorations and layers, Fairy Tail Blue Mistral would be the small, simple cupcake. Blue Mistral is the spinoff series of Fairy Tail starring Wendy Marvell and her feline sidekick Clara. Together, they’re off in their own adventures without their fellow Fairy Tail guild members. That’s right, no Natsu, Lucy, Gray, or Erza (at least for now). Wendy’s first quest is to find a local village’s missing inhabitants and the “ghost dragon” rumored to haunt the area. What Wendy uncovers isn’t what is all cracked up to be.

For Fairy Tail fans, Blue Mistral is the light read when you want to take a break from the original Fairy Tail story line. For me, Blue Mistral is decent but mildly disappointing. Wendy’s one of my favorite female Fairy Tail characters! I felt like reading a lowkey G-rated fanfiction. I’d stick to the original Fairy Tail. Besides, Wendy’s more badass in that one.
