It's been delayed for a wee while, so let's have a nostalgic feel as we focus solely on Fairy Tail in this review! And since we've got a break from sharing reviews, I figured it made sense to see how this is doing as a sequel to the original series so far. While we have the time, right?
|Aww, she our sleepy baba.|
|Levy, at this point, you're the weird one here.|
|I like her, but I'm still not used to Good Minerva.|
|I genuinely hope that people are making fanart of this current design.|
|Do a lot of girls do this? Fold their arms in a way that actually makes their chest look bigger? I doubt it but anime keeps saying its a thing...|
Opinion: I think these fish are scared.
From what we've seen and heard, it's clear that the fish are not bad seafolk. They just want to praise their God and do what they think is best for him, be it protecting or offering tribute. If I had to guess, which I do, I would say that they are executing this woman in the hopes that the Water God will be happy again and stop doing... something... to them. Think of it like throwing the virgin into the volcano because their crops have gone bad. It's new to them. I doubt these guys have a history of murder behind them.
|*sigh* I miss the smexy Pisces' duo that Yukino owns.|
It's interesting to note how many side characters are starting to get involved in this Touka subplot. This has gone from Gajeel, Juvia, Levy and Pantherlily to Sabretooth and even Crime Sorciere seeking her out. Is she a vessel/prophet of the Water God Dragon? Is she actually the Water God Dragon in human form, with an Exceed following her?
|Can we all take a moment to appreciate how perfectly happy Sorano now is, and how far she has come? I find it adorable.|
As for what I mentioned at the beginning of this review, "I figured it made sense to see how this is doing as a sequel to the original series so far", I find it rather underwhelming. I'm not saying the series so far is bad, but it is certainly beginning to feel like more of the same but less of it. The stakes aren't particularly high and nothing feels different. However, we're only five chapters in. Plenty of things can change over time, depending on how long this series is. Maybe Dragon Ball Super raised the bar too high for me, but I really want to see some next level Fairy Tail shenanigans and action. Natsu, create lava! Erza, put swords on your swords! Carla and Happy, be better!
Manga Rating: 3.5/5
Character of the Week: Lucy for deducing Elefceria's words and opening up what I believe to be Elefceria's plot.
Best Part: Sabretooth!
Worst Part: Still no Water God Dragon.
|Ah, her breasts are visible. Then this must be the protective battle armour that so many fantasy women wear!|
