A few weeks back, we challenged you lunatics to express your love of FAIRY TAIL in... unusual terms. As the video above demonstrates, we were thoroughly impressed with entrants' creativity. The winners will all be receiving some grande FAIRY TAIL swag for their efforts, courtesy of the fine folks at FUNimation!
First off, we start with a warm, fluffy multi-grain tortilla that represents the show's animation. Inside of the tortilla, we have a large helping of sweet and spicy orange chicken, representing the overall story of Fairy Tail.
For this specific burrito, the cook must steal potato chips from Light Yagami's house to create the right sense of intrigue. Lucy? I would categorize her as the melty nacho cheese that holds the ingredients together from the top.
The good… Spicy!
The not-so-good… Bitter!
Miscellanea like Music and Animation… Just Needs More Seasoning and Flavor
The Tortilla part in the burrito is what holds the ingredients together. Newcomers will enjoy Fairy Tail if they like the simplistic characters, a bit of fan service, and light hearted fun.
Fairy Tail is the type of anime series that incorporates a variety of flavors in order to make the show fresh, distinctive, and ultimately satisfying.
Other ingredients would consist of Queso Quesadilla (Lucy Heartfilia), Queso Chihuahua (Lucy Ashley), scrambled eggs (Nichiya), lettuce (Gray Fullbuster), tomatoes (Lyon Vastia), tomatillo salsa (Minerva Orlando), pico de gallo (Sting Eucliffe) onions (Rogue Cheney) sour cream (Kagura Mikazuchi), potatoes (Laxus Dreyar) salt (Mavis Vermilion), pepper (Gajeel Redfox), garlic (Flare Corona), cilantro (Walrod Cken) and guacamole (Happy).
"A Fairy Tale Burrito? It’s a multi-layered concoction that starts with the classics - a layer of bean, a layer of rice - traditional themes and flavors common in other anime burritos, but classic for a reason. They work. They’re delicious, especially in combination. But they aren’t enough on their own, no sir. Fairy Tale adds delectable character to the burrito; layers of vegetables both sharp and fresh. Juicy Lucy tomatoes, hot Natsu peppers, Cool Gray lettuce - they taste great and they’re great for you. Double win.
Fairy Tails’ sauce tempts you to take the next bite. While initially hesitant to delve any further than the first few crunchy bites, the sumptuous and, dare I say, tangy body of the first episode carries you from being a passerby into a frequent customer and consumer of this popular anime.
