Gale-Force Reading Glasses (風詠みの眼鏡 Kazeyomi no Megane) are a type of Magic Item.


In the manga, the Gale-Force Reading Glasses are portrayed as a simple pair of glasses with elongated lenses and a dark, mildly large frame, whose only unique feature is the image of a small wing, surrounded by a pair of little hearts, present on the left lens. Levy McGarden's pair also has the quality of the glasses (this being 18x) written on the right lens.[2]

In the anime, the glasses are given a slightly more distinctive appearance, with no inscriptions on the lenses, and the wing being present as an ornament jutting out from each of the lenses' sides instead.[3] They can also come in different colors such as blue and orange.[1]


Gale Force Reading Glasses being used

Gale-Force Reading Glasses allow the user to read books at an extremely rapid pace.[4]


Gale-Force Reading Glasses come in different models. The reading speed varies depending on the quality of the glasses:

  • 2x - The lowest quality; the user can read books around 2 times faster.
  • 18x - Second-grade, the user can read books 18 times faster. During the Battle of Fairy Tail arc, Levy McGarden used a pair of these for her research to break through Fried Justine's Runes.[5]
  • 32x - One of a higher quality; the user can read books around 32 times faster.
  • 64x - The highest quality without the infusion of Wind Magic. It enables the user to read 64 times faster.
  • 120x - By infusing the glass Lacrima with Wind Magic, the Gale-Force Reading Glasses can boost the speed of reading up to 120 times without sacrificing the desired thinness of the glasses.
