4 Discs (Distributor: Manga Entertainment) Running time: 294 minutes approx.

No, you are not experiencing déjà vu – well technically you are – as Manga has reissued the first two volumes of Fairy Tail to allow fans to have the complete series on Blu-ray. Since volume 5 was the first to get the HD treatment, we slip back in time to the very beginning of this fantasy shonen adventure to relive the debut of Natsu, Happy, Lucy, Erza, Gray and the rests of the crazy cast who make up the eponymous Fairy Tail Guild of wizards but this time in glorious HD.

All the extras from the original DVD releases have been ported over so nothing is lost and the picture upgrade is nice and clean so all you hardcore collectors who want every instalment of the entire series on the same format are well catered for here.

Of course if you have yet to dip your toe in the magical waters of Fairy Tail then here is the perfect opportunity to rectify this and see what you’ve been missing out on. It’s quite a ride, a colourful blend of action, adventure, comedy, drama and fantasy – a Naruto or One Piece for the modern anime generation!
