In our duo review, that is unnecessary late, we see lots of talking, lots of revealing and lots of potential for plot twists. There's quite a lot to go for and you've all waited long enough, so let's just jump in to the theorising and admiring! Oh and someone is pregnant, so that's always fun for stories.
|Are they about to make out? Give each other some space, guys. So rude!|
Our first chapter begins with the main cast looking up at the Water God Dragon in his horns and sweet suit, all of the water drained from the area. He threatens my new wife Kyria but she refuses to leave, until she and her companion start to turn into ash, apparently being "summoned" by someone named Skullion. With them conveniently gone, Natsu looks up to ask the Water God Dragon what his deal is.
|Starting to think Mashima should write a harem story. He clearly loves the events/situations in it.|
Camille, Mercuphobia's assistant/secretary, shows up demanding answers. This character, who might remind you of One Piece's Kalifa, demands answers and isn't afraid to be upfront with them. She tells them leave Mercuphobia alone, but he reassures her that he is wanting to talk to the group. Eventually, she leaves and Mercuphobia gives them a tour of his home, which honestly goes to show how nice he is. Just as they start to love him, he tells them he used to be a hardened killer and monster, before he accidently saved Camille and had a change of heart.
|Dibs on Eve.|
There, Touka fangirls over him and has her day out before going home to her flat, which is literally next door to Lucy's! Some fanservice from Touka causes Gajeel and Juvia to fall, and Levy catches them in the "act". Levy feels her stomach, mumbling to herself about how Gajeel is an idiot. And we return to Mercfovia, who has told them that he wants to recover the entirety of his magic so he can fix the city, but it was stolen from him by "the white wizard", who is like the anti-Zeref.
|And now I am officially annoyed at seeing this cliche so much in manga.|
Opinion: Levy's pregnant!
Yes, a lot of other stuff happened but who cares when a ship is actually pregnant! I've often complained about how many stories are about how the relationship starts, but we never see the difficulties and enjoyment of one during the story. Scott Pilgrim is an example of how fun it can be when done right. Basically, more of that stuff please!
The characters of Diabolos, the enemy Guild, are getting more and more ridiculous with every chapter, but that isn't a complaint. They're over-the-top but not obnoxiously so. The leader, Skullion, seems somewhat typical but I'm still loving Kyria and Madmorl, leading me to hope that they'll have plenty of time to engage the audience in the future. Surely, this can't be the only arc for them, right?
|*Insert obvious Infinity War joke here*|
|These guys have basically nothing to do in this review, sadly.|
Chapter 8: 4/5
Chapter 9: 4/5
Best Part: Everything involving Mercuphobia.
Worst Part: "Falling on top of someone, causing romantic interest to snarl" cliche is stupid and cliche.
|I'm only posting this picture to prove to you that she has no tail here! That's all!|
Born under the stars of the Dark Gods, Shiggins owns the power of the Great Eye and is utterly magnificent in his omniscience.
