Yes, it has been a while since Fairy Tail gave me a touch of the feels but I'm happy to say that it got my heartstrings plucked this time. Clearly, I just needed a double-dose of action and tragedy to make me write a properly positive review again. And if the series is about to take the route I've been hoping for, we could be in for a lot more positive reviews in the near future.
|One of my favourite images of all time.|
|Gohan, no! I mean uh... Zeref, no!|
|KALI MA! KALI MAAAA!|
Zeref tearfully says goodbye to this world and Mavis, as she is saddened to hear that the world she met Zeref in will disappear. Finally, she collapses unconscious and Zeref activates Fairy Heart! There is a big burst of light, and Zeref has done one of my all-time favourite villain cliches... TRANSFORMATION!!!
|It's... beautiful! And dumb! And so beautiful! But so dumb!|
|I want to give a special shout-out to this panel here. Gave me stronger feels than... something else that has strong feels. I dunno. Too busy feeling to be clever.|
|HE HAS A FUCKING X-MEN BELT! THIS GETS FUNNIER THE MORE I LOOK AT IT!|
Opinion: NATSU FUCKING LOST!
I honestly can't remember off the top of my head when we last got this but it feels so refreshing! I was expecting Zeref's defeat in this battle but it looks like he's got a lot more to do. I'm praying that we finally get the "Back to the Future" plot I've been begging for... which brings me to Lucy!
Lucy wants to take the book and rewrite it, but I'd like to point out we never saw what happened to those words after they burst out of the book. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the words went into Lucy instead and she's now linked to Natsu in some way. Until a twist like that is revealed, I'm sure Lucy will go to Levy and expect her to pull her weight.
|Off-screen. With nobody looking... Yeah, nice try!|
So what's next for us? Well, personally I'm hoping for the arc involving time travel and Lucy chasing after him. I think we're ready to give Natsu a break and focus on Lucy for now... In fact, that'd be a great reason for why we've been seeing the newest covers for chapters be of the Fairy Tail arcs of the past.
Manga Rating: 4/5
Character of the Week: Zeref for everything I said earlier.
Best Part: Zeref refuses to turn back and becomes a butterfly.
Worst Part: Every non-Zeref scene felt like it was in the way.
|I love that the fact that Lucy's tits are hanging out of her yakuta seems to be as important as Loki being Leo, according to this page.|
