You know when you predict how an arc will end, and then suddenly something awesome or terrifying appears and laughs at your obvious prediction? That was what this chapter achieved. It's making fun of us for underestimating it. And I love that because predictable plots are a huge pet peeve of mine. So as you can tell, I really liked how this chapter ended and the possibilities opened up by the surprise appearance.
|But before we talk about what makes Fairy Tail great, here's a supremely unnecessary panty-shot!|
|That'll sober you up... or make you take up drinking again.|
|Now obviously, since the Lamy army isn't aggressive or anything, Elfman and Lisanna are going to calmly ask them to...JESUS, GUYS! Harsh, much?!|
|LET'S GET READY FOR A BUTT-RAPE!|
Opinion: Honestly, the chapter was really good. Maybe I'm too soft on this series because recently, I've been loving this arc. We finally found out why Sayla got away, the fight between Erza and Kyouka got off to an exciting but fairly predictable start, and of course the ending was a great build-up for next week.
The army of Lamy both baffles me and confuses me. Why an army of Lamy? Are they all going to die or this a sign that Lamy will have one last little clone after this arc is finished? I have no idea and I'm scared of the possibilities.
Alas, this chapter ruined itself by using unnecessary panty shots at the beginning. I know this is Fairy Tail and we expect you to always use fanservice these days but... Stop it. Fans keep getting the wrong impression with this series when you use fanservice like this and I have trouble defending it. (You're not as bad as say, Highschool of the Dead or anything but panty shots during an epic battle like this is a no-no).
|I got forced to watch an episode of this Highschool DxD once... It made me appreciate Fairy Tail a lot more...|
Predictions: Chapter 400! An epic battle against Acnologia! Demons and Fairies needing to work together to overcome the horrifying dragon! Mard Geer being bland! Igneel only appearing in this chapter at the end because it's a harsh tease and it is supremely unlikely he's actually going to do shit for another 100 chapters!
Best Part: Acnologia is here, bitches!
Worst Part: Panties are shown, bitches!
|Does Igneel seem... different here?|
Bonus: With the 400th chapter approaching next week, I am going to take Claydragon's idea and
So if there are any suggestions you'd like to see for Fairy Tail Week, please let me know in the comments below.
