SAYING THINGS WHILE PUNCHING THINGS!
...I don't need more of an introduction than that really. Let's just get going.
|(sob) The translation is in the review...|
|It feels a bit wrong to have Natsu fighting Zeref without Lucy by his side... Here's hoping they are reunited for the Acnologia battle.|
|"Don't be the second Hiro Mashima character with blue hair and a tattoo on his face to die tragically which he will later regret!"|
Natsu punches Zeref, who of course fights back. Natsu says... a lot of words actually. To sum up it up, Zeref is being selfish and only thinking of himself. Natsu then goes super-flamer and charges with a punch. Zeref activates his own attack and... we'll find out next week!
Opinion: Damn, Natsu can talk.
It's almost impressive how much we've heard from Natsu over the years that, when you really think about it, can be summed up with a quick "I love my friends so I'm going to defeat you". I'd actually respect it if we didn't have to spend so many chapters hearing the same crap over and over and over and over again... We get it. Natsu fights for Fairy Tail. At this point, it's not even annoying. It's just boring.
|Proof that you could replace the words with lyrics from your childhood and this speech would have the same effect.|
|If my tattoo started glowing for no reason whatsoever, I'd probably freak out. Is Lucy writing that in the book perhaps? "And then Natsu's tattoo like totally glowed and it was so super-bright and cool like O.M.G".|
Honestly, the Jellal portion was the more interesting side this week. While cliche and mostly predictable, it is still competent and not as straight-forward as you'd expect. Especially since I'm just curious who will save Jellal next week. Gildarts? Gajevy? The Wizard Saints who are still the most pointless fuckers in this arc and possibly the entire series? Place your bets in the comments!
Manga Rating: 1.5/5
Character of the Week: Lucy for turning "nakama power" into something defendable.
Best Part: Acnologia isn't down yet!
Worst Part: Another boring speech.
|I ship Laxus with Freed, Evergreen with Elfman and Bickslow with Risley Law from Mermaid Heel.|
We only have two volumes to go apparently...
|This is the Crunchyroll translation of the afterword from Hiro Mashima, in Volume 61 which is about to be released in Japan this week.|
