    Default Fairy Tail

    Sad to see the Anime & Manga board gone!

    To avoid spoiling people in the omnibus threads (or having to talk in all-spoilers all the time), I'm creating a Fairy Tail thread for discussing the manga/anime.



    Lucy Heartfilia, a young summoner, joins the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail after meeting Natsu Dragneel, a rowdy fire mage from FT looking for his adoptive dragon father. Along with Natsu's talking cat Happy, they gradually form a questing group with Gray Fullbuster, an ice mage with a compulsive stripping habit, and Erza Scarlet, a stern armor mage. The guild finds itself pulled into conflicts as shadowy villains seek to revive the ancient black mage Zeref.
    Crunchyroll has the latest manga chapter legitimately free to read. (Back issues require a paid membership though.)
    It also has most of the anime episodes (currently missing eps 13-48), but the latest episode is paid-only (basically the reverse of the manga situation).
    Hulu also has most episodes.

    The artist regularly posts sketches on his Twitter feed.


    Here there be manga spoilers!

    *****

    So, chapter 384.

    IT'S HAPPENING!

    Things unfolded a lot better than I expected. I was wondering how the three spirits were going to turn things around in a reasonable manner, and it turns out they couldn't. Instead, Lucy and Aquarius got a nice moment, and Lucy finally summoned the Spirit King!

    Lucky the falling Cube rubble didn't crush Magnolia. (OTOH, if it had passed out of Magnolia airspace, does that mean it already finished razing the town? Bad day.)

    It'd be neat we got a quest arc for reforging Aquarius's key. Particularly since having all 12 might become important later in the plot. But more likely, it'll get quick-fixed by something else.

    New anime episode's out. Good timing on the Lucy-centric fight and Aquarius appearance!

    Looks like there's at least one more week of Executioner fights to go, though. Urgh. The filler padding is reasonably entertaining and in-character, but doesn't get anywhere fast.

    I have been loving the Lucy-focused material so far. It's always great when she gets to show off that she's not just bumbling comic relief and fan-service.

    And the insight into Aquarius and how she viewed her relationship with Lucy was awesome but heartbreaking and really made the whole scenario in this latest chapter emotional. Also, Lucy's new power didn't come from a nakama power up or any of that feelings stuff. It was a sacrifice that worked because Lucy's grown strong enough to pull it off and Aquarius was there to tell her what had to be done. Great stuff.

    And the Spirit King swooping in was badass, almost as badass as the last page with the two kings staring off against each other. My main concern would be what happened to the other Fairy Tail wizards when the monster HQ was destroyed.

    And the filler in this week's anime was just horrendous. It completely ruined the pacing of the fight with the executioners. Those fights are supposed to be quick to show that these guys were never a threat to Fairy Tail in the first place.

    Default Chapter 385

    Aw, for a sec I thought Juvia had come to the rescue. But whoa, Stellar Spirit Lucy fusion actually happened I can't tell if it gives her command of water powers, or just auto-defense. Probably going to wear off next week.

    Hit by Urano Metria. Is this the end (again) for Jackal?

    Celestial Spirit King is causing lots of landscape damage, but mostly missing his target. And it feels too early for King of Hades to get taken out. Not sure how to end this fight gracefully.

    Everyone else still MIA.

    Damn!

    Celestial Spirit King vs Marde Guille is epic as all fuck but Lucy ain't gonna stand on the side lines being useless.

    Urano Meteoria FTW suckers!!!
