This week gave us some more surprising foreshadowing and one or two new reveals. Nothing huge or shocking but it gave back the potential of this arc that I was worried Natsu's "badass" beatdowns took away last week. Anyway, this week began with Wendy wiping Juvia.... of sweat! Nothing more!
|So... female nipples don't exist in this world? How hugely disappointing.|
|Honestly, nothing much has changed here really... Except I'm not laughing now.|
|"That's for not having a baby with Juvia yet, you bastard!"|
|Yeah this is basically the same as putting a sticker over it. We all know it's under there, buddy. You're not fooling anybody.|
|Am... I becoming attracted to Mary too now? No no no...|
|"Dear Mashima-senpai. Levy the badass deserves a spinoff. Please give her one, then notice me, senpai!"|
Gray is... well, he's lost it but I'm not sure I can be bothered with this version of him. I've seen it before in many other series and although this is natural, it's nothing new or exciting. I dunno, maybe it's just the mood I'm in right now... I hope it gets better later at least.
Manga Rating: 3.5/5
Character of the Week: Lucy for slapping Gray's nonsense.
Predictions: 4 double-chapters in the next 4 weeks! That's 8 chapters overall! I'M GOING TO HAVE TO REVIEW ALL THAT?! Ooooh boy. Not a good time for to have to do that but hey, the story will be great to get right into and Mashima almost always delivers. Next week we'll see some prison time, some more time with Gray chatting to Mary and Jerome and the goddess herself... Oh and we'll find out Levy used her new status as Council Member to make Jet and Droy "disappear under mysterious circumstances" before she made memes about her illegal.
Best Part: That slap!
Worst Part: Gray isn't as original as he probably wishes he was.
|I wonder if I'll ever tell my child about these reviews... I will never tell them!|
Gasp! The leader of Blue Skull got away! This can only spell disaster! However, no time for that because there is a massive dragon skeleton with the spirit of a crazed Yuriy inside! Zeira is looking for Mavis but Precht is too shocked to answer her questions, (or you know... YOU'RE DEAD, ZEIRA!), and Mavis is currently having a small flashback.
|And... saving to personal file... Now onto the review.|
|Yeah, I was too lazy to type it all. Deal with it.|
|I can't believe she never called this attack "Judgement Day". Huge missed opportunity.|
|MAVIS! MAAAAAVIIIIIIS! NO, PLEASE! IS SHE DEAD?! IS SHE?!!|
Still, Mavis' lack of morality towards magic is interesting. She'll gladly use Dark Magic if she has to, and this could potentially create a great morality debate about how much she should limit herself. What is "too far"? What is "not fair enough"? Tons of possibilities here!
|Yes, Zeref. She wanna.|
The leader of Blue Skull is out there... Meh. Maybe he'll bring someone interesting to be the antagonist next time. I hope so. Hell, maybe the next one will have an even more scary name... like James! GASP!
|Come on, buddy. What is wrong with this scenario? Figured it out yet, Treeman?|
Character of the Week: Zeira for not going overboard with the friendship speech like Mavis did.
Predictions: It's time to rebuild the town and begin Fairy Tail! New members will appear and Yuriy will get married and have a kid named Makarov! Then Blue Skull will return!
Best Part: We saw the first Fairy Law!
Worst Part: Mavis' speeches might need to simmer down a bit.
|The lack of chin there utterly horrifies me.|
