Yes, Mashima gave us two chapters in one week. And yes, it was a mixed bag. And yes, I am here to review them. We got twice the amount of chapters to get through, so let's not waste time and get started. It would be mighty.... ice.... of me to do so!
|Why does this feel like one of two times I've seen Gajeel this week?|
|Gray: Gee, Zeref. What is your true goal?|
Zeref: The same goal as every villain. Try to take over the world!
|Man, I'd love to see the adult version of this scene...|
|It's a plan as cunning as a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University!|
|Oh gee, who called that one?!|
|How many characters do we need to learn the "don't sacrifice yourself for others, live for others" plot? My bet is on Gajeel next.|
|No, they'll be more confused than anything. "Hey, who defeated Invel? Why did we go to Galuna Island? Juvia, why do you own a thousand dolls and a towel that literally says "Gray" on it?" Wow, Gray. I don't think you though this through.|
But we need a better ending than that, so why don't we go back to Erza and Wendy again? That sounds good. With a bang and a crash and a gasp, Acnologia lands his sexy butt right in front of the girls and with a damn nice grin.
Opinion: Yays and boos.
Let's start with the yay that is Acnologia, as he's finally here to kick some ass! If there's one villain we can count on winning any fight, even one against Erza, it's Acnologia... Right? We aren't actually about to see Erza somehow kick Acnologia's ass, are we? Haha... No, no. Not at all. I mean, that'd be utter bullshit of the highest order. What we do know though is that he's here for Wendy, so it should be interesting to see how Wendy escapes his clutch. Could Irene be about to stand back up and save the day?
I am officially done with Iced Shell and Gray's hidden desire to kill himself. We know he isn't killing himself so let's stop even pretending he is. Especially with Iced Shell. Sorry, but adding "Lost" does not a good spell make. Although I will admit that the idea of "Lost Attribute" being used in another capacity in the future is utterly filled with possibilities. If this is actually a tease for future events, I could almost thank the return of Iced Shell.
As we now finally arrive at Natsu vs Zeref, I'd just like to point out right now that I am very prepared to give a negative review if the outcome of this is something along the lines of "I won't die because I said so", as I am a man that can only handle so much bullcrap before my brain shuts down and turns into spaghetti. Therefore, let us pray that we get a damn good explanation soon.
Lastly, Gildarts and Cana vs August. Two very fun characters we rarely see together, now fighting what is basically the Spriggan Overlord. How does Mashima-senpai plan to defeat an enemy we literally saw be blasted into cubes but reformed himself together right away? I don't know, but could we be about to see a return of the Wizard Saints?
Manga Rating: 4/5
Character of the Week: Zeref for finally stepping up and taking the role of the villain once again.
Best Part: Acnologia bursts in.
Worst Part: Iced Shell 3 - Revenge of the Lost.
