A couple of weeks ago, via cheap shipping (slow) from Japan, I ordered Fairy Tail Blue Mistral 1 and Fairy Tail 47. I got them yesterday. My daughters immediate reaction to the cover art on Blue Mistral was that it looked "really girly". Rather than the subdued browns of the main series, the Blue Mistral cover was bright Blue and Yellow. It contains the first 4 chapters of Blue Mistral (whereas volume 47 of Fairy Tail contains 9 chapters - 395-403.) And yes, the plot is a bit bubbly.
