College is over so I can devote myself, body and soul, to you!
Our first chapter begins with the most important plot point of almost any series in history. That's right, ladies and gents... IT'S SHOWER TIME! Oh yes, beloved shower time! As important as bath time or spa time, shower time is truly the beginning of a masterpiece story and the perfect way to begin our tale. Lucy in a shower might seem like pointless fanservice but it's actually a clever usage of nudity that sets a cheerful and pleasant scene of relaxation and comfort. Hooray!
|If you can't see how important these scenes are, then frankly I'm just embarrassed for you.|
|Hear that? It's the sound of Natsu claiming his prize.|
|Oh yeah, I forgot to mention. I think Droy mutated or something because he's fucking terrifying now!|
|Shippers... Am I right?|
|"There is no Zuul. Only Erzaaaaaa!"|
|Damn, Mest gets hotter with each visit. What the hell is he gonna look like in the final arc?|
Mest tells them he doesn't know why Mavis is frozen here, but he knows it's important. Mest then uses his magic to plant his own memories into everybody's heads to give us a flashback! It shows 9 years ago, when Makarov gave Mest a mission to go undercover at the Council and find out information about the West Continent.
|I wonder if Hiro Mashima will ever get bored of drawing naked Mavis... Probably not.|
|Poor Lahar... At least he's in a better place now.|
|It's big! Have we made that clear yet? It's very VERY big!|
Opinion: Duuuuude! We're going into a big arc this time! All that disappointment towards Avatar is already washing away!
|438: Yay! The house we've seen like twice is still there...|
439: 3! Please be 3!
|Then again, if this wasn't enough to stop her, nothing will!|
|Do you know why Elfman cries? Because he's a real MAN!|
|With a campaign poster like this, who WOULDN'T vote for him?|
1. We saw Zeref meet Acnologia. Does this mean they won't be involved in this arc or did Zeref know this was going to happen, which is the sole reason he met up with Acnologia?
2. What about Future Rogue and the death of Frosch? Depending on whether or not Sabretooth play a major role here, this could be the cause but we don't know yet.
3. A war arc... After Naruto, Magi and Bleach, I was really hoping Fairy Tail would avoid a major war arc too. The spectacle of faceless army vs faceless army wears out fast and those three series exhausted me with their wars that took far too long and were so serious. Fairy Tail shines when it's focusing on humour and close, intimate battles against wacky foes and both of those are things that war arcs primarily lose due to so many antagonists.
I'm not saying "don't be excited" or anything, because I'm getting excited for it and you should too. I'm just taking those points into account during my travels through the lands of my heart... Shut up, that totally makes sense.
Chapter 438: 3/5
Chapter 439: 3.5/5
Predictions: We're going to get a wee glimpse of the Abraless Kingdom next week, showing us our main threats this time. This will include some sort of general and royal, perhaps a queen I'm unsure. Either way, this next main antagonist will follow the tradition of standing on thrones while being evil. Meanwhile, Erza will take action, and prevent Natsu from just running out in a rage like he always wants to do.
Best Part: Setting up a new arc with tons of potential!
Worst Part: Where the hell is Laxus?!
|I've decided to start a new tradition where I post whatever Twitter pictures Mashima-senpai I can find. And why did I decide to do such a thing? BECAUSE LOOK HOW GORGEOUS!|
