We continue the double review of Mashima-senpai's works with two chapters that begin plenty of problems for our heroes and, thankfully, seem to be keeping them going on their hot streak! With the brief weird moments here or there, because anime is anime and manga is manga and both are just odd. And I know this review is a bit late but work got in the way. Damn you, reality!
|Vegeta did it better.|
So we begin with jellyfish, that seem weirdly hostile and try to go inside people's mouths. Natsu and Lucy struggle, but Wendy saves the day. Natsu ate his though. The characters are crossing the Giltena continent, which is North of Ishgar (hey, there's a flashback for ya!) and we get a flashback of Natsu telling Elefceria that he is the one who defeated Acnologia, making this the old man's last chance. And back to the present, Lucy continues her narration.
|So... Natsu swallows.|
|Well... It's not exactly the spinoff I asked for, but I'll take it!|
FT 100 Year Quest Opinion:
So, who else doesn't trust Elefceria? I'm assuming it isn't just me, since Elefceria is an old man/dragon promising literally anything, and wants five supremely powerful dragons who aren't bothering anyone to be sealed away from sight. All our information comes from him, so I'm betting money right now that he will be an antagonist soon enough.
|Oh look. The movie villains! Is Cooler with you guys?|
As for Touka, see my previous review for my thoughts on her. Nothing has changed there.
Manga Rating: 3.5/5
Character of the Week: Gajeel for his amazing outfit.
Best Part: Water Dragon backstory!
Worst Part: Not enough Water Dragon backstory!
Eden's Zero Summary:
Sibir is demanding info on Weisz, while being nagged at by his chirping bird, but Rebecca and Shiki don't know so they chose to run away instead of interfering with the timeline. With the power of gravity control, Shiki, Rebecca and Happy have an exciting chase and damage Sibir's robot. We then go to a bar full of aliens, but which is nowhere near the Mos Eisley Cantina we all love and adore. And there's Weisz, coincidentally! Phew, I was worried they'd have to use their brains to find him!
|I swear to god, selfies are a plague on fiction.|
Eden's Zero Opinion:
So Weisz has a new friend/girlfriend/robot. Is this going to be a thing where Exceeds are replaced with robots, and every major character has one by their side? Because if so, I'm not entirely against it. And on the plus side, it's clear Weisz didn't mean to steal her! Maybe I'm jumping the gun here, but that might imply we're not going the cliche route of "they caused my father to lose his livelihood" or whatever and Weisz was being a selfish bastard. At least, a little bit? Maybe?
As for the discount Mos Eisley Cantina, what a letdown! If you told me Hiro Mashima was going to draw a bar full of aliens, I'd be picturing tons of images and creations. Instead, the most memorable and strange thing we got was a sexy bunny girl. And I'm pretty sure she's not even Mashima's sexiest bunny girl!
|Oh there you are, fanservice! It's been a while! How you doing?|
|I shall name her... Peggy Pegleg.|
Manga Rating: 3.5/5
Character of the Week: Weisz for being (hopefully) a dick and not a bland perfect hero.
Best Part: A new character!
Worst Part: Waste of an alien bar.
|If this was Naruto, readers would try and use this as proof they'll end up as a couple... Seriously. It was strange.|
