Hello guys and gals! I got good news. I'm just going to quote the article instead of rewriting it. (I'm running out of time).

Hello everyone, I'm Taka, a wiki editor who is a big Fairy Tail fan. I would do this in the Fairy Tail Discussion (Anime) threads, but I didn't want to bore folks with the wiki. Plus, this is something I need to address. While I was approving wiki edits being a new mod, I seen folks asking me to change names of the characters such as Fairy Tail and Naruto. The mods told me that we use official translations from official manga publishing companies if possible. Not all manga series are licensed. And not all licensed manga series are available in other countries.
I didn't put down Wikipedia because sometimes they use names spelled differently from the official publishers.
Yesterday, I took a trip to the public library, and I didn't know where to start. I just took the most recent volumes that were available. In the future, I just visit Barnes and Noble. Though, I won't be able to scan the manga pages. My camera cannot zoom in close to capture the text. Sometimes, the official websites have those solicits, short manga synopsis, that may have the names.
This is a shout out to active Fairy Tail editors in the community.
Sentai Filmworks will release the series on DVD and Blu-ray on Nov. 19
Editor's Note: If I find an English dub trailer, I will post it for you guys and gals.

A few years later, the five of them are living in the same school dorm, still living every day like a carnival.

Spotlighted in the Quick Picks: October 2013 (Manga) edition, I'm going to promote the series. Plus, Halloween is coming around the corner. It's an ecchi, comedic, harem series with monster girls. It was available since Oct. 15.
Three years ago, the world learned that harpies, centaurs, catgirls, and all manners of fabulous creatures are not merely fiction; they are flesh and blood - not to mention scale, feather, horn, and fang. Thanks to the "Cultural Exchange Between Species Act," these once-mythical creatures have assimilated into society, or at least, they're trying.
When a hapless human teenager named Kurusu Kimihito is inducted as a "volunteer" into the government exchange program, his world is turned upside down. A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kurusu's job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life.
Unfortunately for Kurusu, Miia is undeniably sexy, and the law against interspecies breeding is very strict. Even worse, when a ravishing centaur girl and a flirtatious harpy move in, what's a full-blooded teenage human with raging hormones to do?!
