FAT48 (Fairy Tail 48)
From the booklet that came with the PSP game, Fairy Tail: Zeref’s Awakening.
Read by columns, from right to left.
This is a parody of AKB48, an all-female Japanese idol group. It’s drawn by Mashima-sensei’s assistant, Kobayashi Kina, and best appreciated if you have some knowledge of the AKB48 group and/or idol culture.
The group holds a general election every year, and the top 16 (it used to be 21) members voted by fans will sing the A-side of the next single. It’s an important event for the fans, who save up to be able to give multiple votes to the girls they like.
“Period of the Idol Warring States” (Idol Sengoku Jidai, アイドル戦国時代) refers to the current period (2010s), where many groups are capitalizing on the idol boom and making their debut, resulting in a very competitive idol scene.
Fairy Tale’s aren’t always so simple…
“And by like, I don’t mean a lukewarm feeling, like as a friend or a comrade…Please give the name of the man she has romantic feelings about.”
