20 Interesting Things You Might Not Know About Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail began as a manga by Hiro Mashima that debuted in 2006. In 2009, its wildly popular anime adaption came out. Since then, the story of Natsu Dragneel and the rest of the Fairy Tail guild has captivated shonen fans. But even if you're one of the series' most hardcore fans, there's still plenty of trivia and details that may have escaped your notice. This list is here to make you just a little wiser about the wonderful world of Fairy Tail. 

Many of the things you didn't know about Fairy Tail have to do with designs and ideas that Mashima scrapped. For example, at one point he intended to make Gray Fullbuster a Rave Master tie-in - Rave Master being an earlier manga of his. Here's another detail that didn't make the cut - Natsu was going to have horns. There are also details about the inspiration behind the characters - Lucy's name was apparently taken from Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds by the Beatles.
