Okay, now can we get the Levy spinoff?
Sorry, focus on this review first! This month gave us the final chapters of both Ice Trail and Fairy Tail Zero. (By the way, no. I'm not going to do a full review of Ice Trail. It bores me to tears). As endings go, Fairy Tail Zero didn't do anything shocking or unique but it did give us a few scenes we needed to see, including the resolution of the cliffhanger that 11 left us with: Zera the "ghost"!
|I wonder if Hiro Mashima was inspired by Lewis Carroll in any way... (Good on you if you got that joke).|
I'm not gonna lie here. This was actually a fairly tragic chapter with the feels I was hoping for. We start Chapter 12 off with Mavis trying in vain to convince Yuriy that Zera is right in front of her, and Zera must apologise as she reveals to Mavis that she did in fact die seven years ago in Chapter 1, on Tenrou Island. It turns out that the reason she's been aging and living alongside Mavis is because Mavis' subconscious unlocked her magic and she created the illusion of Zera all those years ago.
|This would be funny if it wasn't so painfully heartbreaking...|
|I'm suddenly remembering the cliffhanger to Wolf Among Us... Ambiguity is a brilliant hell!|
Mavis wants to start a Guild! That is exactly how we are beginning this final chapter! She tells Yuriy that although she wants to go find fairies, she also wants a home to return to and that's why this Guild would be good for all of them. Also, the town's economy is fucked right now because cities need the influence of Guilds to keep stable and now with Blue Skull gone, the town is in trouble. And of course, it shall be named Fairy Tail!
|Funny faces in manga just utterly kill me.|
|"I was clearly hugely important in this plot!"|
Opinion: IT. IS. DONE!
The departure of Zera was hugely expected from chapter 2 when we first saw her ghost/illusion/whatever so it might not have had the hugest impact, but chapter 12 did provide a lovely exit for her. Seeing Mavis cry is impossible to stay heartless towards! If this is the last time we'll ever see Zera, I'm unsure. For all we know, Fairy Heart could have been an attempt to resurrect Zera or something. We'll find out in the main series.
|Forward and forward... until you get frozen in ice in a basement.|
|BECAUSE I AM 100% CONVINCED THAT YURIY IS GOD SERENA! THAT'S WHY!|
So that's me done with Fairy Tail Zero. I better find something else to replace it... *looks at the reviews of Kuroshitsuji that I stopped doing for reasons* ...Interesting.
Chapter 12: 3.5/5
Chapter 13: 3/5
All 13 Chapters: 3.5/5
Best Part: Goodbye, my friend Zera.
Worst Part: That calendar better be wrong about Yuriy...
| Zero to Zera, in no time flat!|
Zero to Zera, just like that!
