In the world of Fairy Tail, magic is all around. The story centers around a certain magic guild, called 'The Fairy Tail' and its magicians, Lucy Heartfilia, Erza Scarlet, Natsu Dragneel, Grey Fullbuster and Happy.
Stopped airing on 30 March, 2013, and restarted on 5 April, 2014, on Saturday 10:30-11:00.
Both have action scenes and value team work, though in Fairy Tail, team work is of more importance. They both have guilds and characters with powers, and only a slight bit of romance. The major difference between them is that Sword Art Online is set in a virtual world while Fairy Tail is set in a medieval world.
