As it is in the requisite period of time, those of you speculating about material for a filler arc in the anime series might consider the possibility that this plot could be used in an anime arc. This story seems to have been written to introduce people to nearly all the major characters of the Fairy Tail series, however, I suspect most of the people who enjoy this book will already be fans of the series. I think that this series does better for evoking humorous situations than in evoking a sense of adventure. As I have said before, my Japanese is crap, so I may not have gotten all the details. Sorry for that. However, for anybody else here who knows a little Japanese, the language seems to be written at the same level as the manga series. And no, I have not found the book in English.
