Title: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on May 17, 2014, 04:30:21 PM
                  So I was just browsing through this section and I couldn't seem to find any thread regarding Fairy Tail akin to the one's for Bleach or Naruto, so I thought I'd go ahead and start one up. This shall be a place to discuss the latest goings on in the Fairy Tail Manga, or any general discussion about the Manga in general.

                  Anyway's onto the latest release, chapter #384. The Aquarius thing was a neat idea, although I personally wasn't that emotionally invested in the relationship between her and Lucy. But hey, the Celestial Spirit King has entered the fray and looks like he's shaping up to be a bad ass! I would never of guessed from his previous appearances. I'm assuming, the most common scenario in Shonen will happen. He'll get a bit of a build up and kick some expendable guys to the curb, before getting struck down by Mard Geer (Really not digging the name....then again, another Demon is called Keith!) Not really a long shot but we'll wait and see.

The newest chapter was probably the best chapter of fairy tail ever... I believe that it singlehandedly made the manga better. Finally there is a lead shonen heroine who doesnt need to be saved! I almost cried at the loss of Aquarius as well which is just odd XD. But I think that next chapter will be epic!!! :3
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion

Yeah I really like Lucy as a character in  that she stands out on here own. In fact, thinking about it, she's probably one of the most fleshed out character there is in FT. They're not afraid to throw her into the fighting either, she  takes an ass kicking like the rest of them it must be said, rather than just cheering on from the sidelines. Although she is the focus of the excessive fan service the series indulges in, she still has a purpose beyond that, which is a refreshing change.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Hikari on May 18, 2014, 06:26:01 AM
Very true. Fairy Tail likes to mainly use Lucy as the fanservice girl... and Wendy as the lolicon magnet :D
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on May 18, 2014, 09:06:18 PM
Oh yeah, that was awesome. For once. For once Lucy was useful and I can respect her.

Please teach Kishimoto to do the same for Sakura.

And rukia, so that she aint saved by Byakuya every fight

Fairy Tail Chapter 385 Thoughts:
Spoiler
So, first of all I was wondering who the woman was in the second panel on page 1. Took me a while to realise it was Kyouka without her helmet.
                  Anyway, not a bad chapter all in all, turns out the Celestial Spirit King and the Demon King, Mard Geer have a longstanding beef. (I'm assuming he's a king. He seem's to be the Demonic equivalent of the Celestial Spirit King anyhow) Seem's like it could be a good fight, but then Mashima has a tendency to wrap fight scenes up quickly, so I'm guessing this one's over in two chapters at most.
                  So Lucy's seemingly absorbed the power of Aquarius, I like that it gives Lucy another option to fight, since she's been caught without her keys plenty of times. It should also give her plenty of combo moves with her other spirits so that may be interesting to see. And she's busted out her signature move and it connected! So that should of defeated Jackal. Unless, they pull the swerve, Lucy is about to be killed and someone from the guild jumps in to save her. Interesting either way and I shall look forward to the next chapter. 
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Hikari on May 23, 2014, 11:14:52 AM
I really hope no one saves her, she should just go ass kick mode and beat the *censored* out of tartaros other than the king, END and zeref himself
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on May 23, 2014, 12:05:58 PM
Zeref is the ultimate OP.  He's so powerful he can't die even when he wants to haha.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Hikari on May 24, 2014, 08:09:40 AM
Zeref VS Madara VS Akainu VS Aizen
Go!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on May 24, 2014, 02:07:40 PM
Ah man that deserves an epic discussion on its own. Aizen will evolve endlessly as people attack him then he'll take everyone out!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Hikari on May 24, 2014, 05:55:12 PM
Id have to say Madara, after all he hasnt even gone full power yet and we know he could probably level 100 mountains by blinking.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on May 30, 2014, 07:24:50 AM
So that was unexpected, he freed the members of FT then went home.  But I guess it ties that up nicely and brings the guild back into the fold. Next weve got 4 on 4 with natsu, grey, juvia and gajeel. That should be awesome can't wait for the next chapter!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on June 06, 2014, 03:29:36 PM
Well, okay. Had to re-read this chapter to remember what happened. So Gray's been taken off, probably for a history lesson from his dad before battling (although I'm confused how he can just teleport, I hope they explain that). That leaves a 3-on-3, oh and Face has been activated. I imagine Makarov will use that Lumen Histoire thing in the Basement of Fairy Tail's Guild to combat it somehow. Was an okay chapter, was there to set up a couple of plot lines for the next dozen or so chapters. Next chapter shall focus on Erza v/s Minerva, so I imagine it will be action heavy.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on July 18, 2014, 08:35:32 AM
So for fans of Fairy Tail just in case you missed it there is a new chapter out by Mashima Hiro Called Fairy Tail Zero, which is meant to detail the founding of the guild.

Also the last Fairy Tail chapter was quite nice imo.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Hikari on July 18, 2014, 10:21:36 AM
I dont think im gonna read zero, doesnt really interest me.

What is up with Mashima sensei recently? Why are the latest chapters so damn good?!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on July 18, 2014, 07:42:46 PM
I read the first chapter they've put out. It follows Mavis as the MC. It was pretty interesting, think I'll be keeping up with it.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 19, 2014, 01:04:16 AM
Zero is interesting? I'll try it out.

Hmm. More friendship made amongst enemies, and now it's in the form of calling all mages from all guilds. I guess dark guilds will show up acting tsundere while they help save the world with a friendship beam >.>
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on July 19, 2014, 05:52:15 AM
Well, for FT, it's fairly unexpected. Hiro showed he could write about 3 possible outcomes for these last chapters but chose this one. It's not even a real friendship as he has now asked to die anyway - this must happen imo or it will be a "friendship prevails" kinda cliched cop out. It hasn't gotten to a point where its all rainbows and unicorns yet, but I wouldn't expect too much from FT in the way of serious dilemmas or emotional internal conflicts, just expect what you always did with it: fun action and cool magic powers and Natsu to become the ultimate dragonslayer that has all the freakin powers because why stop at fire and lightning!? :P Oh and then for the Dragons to return and kill everyone... or wait... is that GoT...
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 19, 2014, 08:29:38 AM
Haha that better not be a spoiler!

As for the Gray's dad thing that didn't bother me too much or anything, it's jsut that I'm able to guess the next things that'll happen too well. I knew Minerva and Ezra would make up, and she even cried. Totally nukes any of her persona that she managed to craft over time, and she seemed weaker even.

It's a fun story, sure, but there's a limit for me I think. They shouldn't have suggested dark plots in the first place if all that needs to be done is shake hands after the fact.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on July 19, 2014, 08:52:43 AM
On the contrary, to a lot of people, they may find the suggested dark plots that never actually come to fruition insight a sense of relief and "feel goodness" (my mind just broke a bit there... sorry...) for them.

And you have got to think what the theme of the story is for Minerva's case. FT has always been about "your guild is your family". I don't think (or at least can't remember) a part of the plot before this where someone has turned away from their guild and then been brought back. I agree it weakens her character slightly, and hey could have probably written it better so that she actually learned a meaningful lesson or something. But it's still done ok.

But as you say its about personal impressions from the story, I'm not going to try to make you like it :P
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on July 19, 2014, 10:14:50 AM
Has anyone checked out "Fairy Tail: Ice Trail" too? It follows Gray's origin story. It's pretty cool.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 19, 2014, 05:07:45 PM
How prolific is this guy to have that many projects.

Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on July 19, 2014, 05:18:51 PM
He is a really quick drawer, meant to be one of the fastest in the business, you can see his speed drawing on youtube I think. So he has a lot more time for writing and side projects because he can get the art out the way so damned fast!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 20, 2014, 07:39:17 PM
He has YT videos? I'll take a look at those then
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on July 21, 2014, 05:03:08 AM
I don't think they are his specifically... but they are about him and show off his speed drawing
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 21, 2014, 07:07:33 PM
Oh yes I expected as such, but still, it's something nice to know.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on July 25, 2014, 07:19:36 AM
well, I know what happened in that latest chapter but at the same time I have absolutely no clue...
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 25, 2014, 09:02:46 AM
You know what, I'll take your advice and switch my mindset when reading Fairy Tail >...> I'll clearly overshoot what it's aimed at if I go on at this rate so I'll let this power up slide on account of family = strong bonds = power +++
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on July 25, 2014, 09:10:55 AM
Hahahahaha yeah... it's just one of those things you have to accept if you want to enjoy these mangas...
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on July 29, 2014, 07:53:54 PM
Because Gray... that is all...
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on July 29, 2014, 07:57:09 PM
I'm not kidding though

Spoiler
I literally think its because Gray was the most underpowered compared to the rest of the mains and they needed to give him a boost. Thing is... Juvia did all the bloody work!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on August 01, 2014, 08:44:22 AM
Haha these move names just get longer and longer :P
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on December 01, 2014, 06:59:19 AM
Fairy Tail logic: The more words in a special move's title = the more powerful it is  :tongue:

The latest, chapter 418.

Yikes, that's some OP timeskipping right there
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on February 02, 2015, 04:56:35 PM
wow, so way to devalue Lucy. Her guild splits up so she resorts to getting a job as a Gravure Model?

Also, how is Natsu is a good protagonist? He just bust in and burned the F*ck out of the place, placing hundreds of peoples lives in danger? :o
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on February 02, 2015, 05:33:53 PM
I thought that was the hallmark of a great protagonist! :biggrin: Nahhhh he''s just showing off, there were guild-masters there so the crowds were fiiiiiine :P

Well... Lucy did then become a journalist... whiiiiich I guess is lower than gravure model so.... yeah completely devalued!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on February 03, 2015, 01:46:40 AM
I don't think she ever was meant to be anything other than walking eye candy. 

Natsu must've finally at least got over his motion sickness though.  I bet it was the dragons' faults that was happening
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Aozora on February 03, 2015, 12:20:24 PM
It's a real shame too. Lucy really had the potential to be a strong MC but Mashima didn't do much with her character.

On another note, Natsu now has the power to melt clothes  :sheep:
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on February 03, 2015, 01:18:24 PM
I was surprised when the tartaros arc wasn't the last one, I'm positive I read somewhere it was. Oh well, not complaining. I like reading Fairy Tail so more is fine with me.

On a side note, I'd recommend the ft zero and ice trail spin off's, they're pretty interesting.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Hikari on February 03, 2015, 09:36:14 PM
I mentioned somewhere that it was only halfway through and the person I told seemed to ignore it. Not sure who it was though
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on February 05, 2015, 01:30:54 PM
What is the ice trail thing? I should see the fairy tail zero.

Man, I read this manga, I get annoyed, but I'm not nastily surprised like how Bleach let me down man. Only my fan willpower is letting me live through that one .
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Aozora on February 05, 2015, 01:38:06 PM
Ice Trail follows Gray's backstory and how he ended up at FT guild. I'm not a big fan of it though because Mashima doesn't do the art.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Synctual on May 19, 2015, 01:24:00 PM
Man, Fairy Tail is getting highly interesting. I was expecting a Naruto/Sasuke thing with Gray and Natsu but this is great. And now the history of Natsu and Zeref have been revealed. Amazing! The ending really has me hungry for more.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on June 08, 2015, 07:16:14 PM
The last few chapters (Zeref and this latest one) Were really interesting. Props to FT on that front!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on June 08, 2015, 07:44:37 PM
really interesting, I have to agree! Im digging it. Interested in what this 730 strong guild army is all about. Will it be like naruto? With the zetsu army?
 
I like the idea of being desperately outnumbered and fighting the tide of enemies. interested in what will happen next
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on June 08, 2015, 07:48:57 PM
They better make the battle worth its grain in salt though. Please no more friendship bulldust.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on July 13, 2015, 10:12:19 PM
The end of this chapter....wtf!?

I was wondering how he would slot into all this, guess now we have our answer. Hope it's not like the last arc where it's just a series of 1 vs 1 matches over and over again.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Aozora on July 13, 2015, 10:20:13 PM
Ah yes, I just finished reading the chapter and blasting some trolls, who were complaining about it on MangaStream. Is it weird that I find pleasure in doing that lol...?

Unfortunately, I feel like it's going to come to that. It's just the formula that FT uses, and a lot of Shounen use actually if you think about it. Even in One Piece, every crew member fights one of the bad guys.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 27, 2015, 06:19:24 AM
Guys someone please for goodness sake explain that latest chapter? Was that the power of an epic dialogue statement or what?! They were defeated!!!

I must admit things have been interesting here and there, but I can't help but feel the power scaling is going over my head sometimes.

Ninpou eat my fist no jutsu was hilarious, and there are good bits here and there but yeeeesh fairy tail can do some suspicious things sometimes.

I honestly can't, haha. Mashima hypes up the "12" and tells us how they're so powerful, but Natsu just punches the guy like it's nothing. I'm a bit confused about the power scaling myself. They almost got demolished by that "Space Guy", but now it looks like they're gonna crush one of the 12.

Idk, but as long as no more "friendship is magic" stuff is pulled, then I'm peachy.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 27, 2015, 03:22:59 PM
Seriously! Just that Space guy and girl tortured them and suddenly he's being punched? I laughed and refused at the same time. That was just not realistic. And why is Makarov crying like a child instead of at least trying his magic? Well I guess he's old but still...
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Master of Vuric on July 27, 2015, 04:54:02 PM
I think the problem is Hiro Mashima hypes up his villains so much that he's unable to have the good guys win in a believable way. It's not just this arc, I remember how much Sabertooth and Tartaros were bigged up as being way out of FT's league. The result being that both those arcs started out great but had disappointing climaxes.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Synctual on July 27, 2015, 05:15:01 PM
True. It was just a bundle of 1v1 fights. I was hoping this arc would be different. There's still a chance, but going off what we've seen so far. It seems like this will be going in the same direction. Hopefully, Zeref will be nearly unstoppable making things more interesting.

I just really want to see Fairy Tail on their knees. Hiro makes the 12 seem like this incredibly powerful force to be reckoned with but now it looks like he's just throwing that all away. I could be speaking too soon, but come on. Even Makarov feared their strength, but this happens! I hope the next few chapters can show us just how inferior Fairy Tail is compared to Alvarez, because we haven't seen it yet. 
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 27, 2015, 05:27:51 PM
Yeah, the power of friendship is getting way too much. Starting to annoy me almost more than Naruto even. This is why I liked his Rave Master series better.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Master of Vuric on July 27, 2015, 05:35:18 PM
The power of friendship can get Mashima out of any plothole, in this chapter literally.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 27, 2015, 05:50:29 PM
He cannot even defend this one. I'll lampoon it forever...
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Aozora on July 27, 2015, 11:55:13 PM
I'm going to give Mashima the benefit of the doubt here and say the bad guy had his guard down? Or maybe he got too cocky? I'm not really sure, but this isn't something we haven't seen before. Fairy Tail has done this plenty of times before so I'm just desensitized to it now. As long as that Spriggan guy hasn't been one-shotted, I'm fine.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on July 28, 2015, 12:06:55 PM
The only defence I can come up with is that Makarov over estimated the gulf in power between FT and the enemy. After all he's been gone a year, so hasn't witnessed Natsu and co.'s growth (which it was implied they'd all grown a lot!!!)

However its seems he never strays from the formula of Enemy/Hero/Enemy/Hero in terms of who's got the upper hand in battles. It's odd, I know thats the most common scenario (New enemy seems deadly, heroes make a comeback, then Enemy takes them to the brink and when all seems lost, Hero triumphs with special attack/convenient power up)

It gets predictable after a while. I don't think Natsu's one shotted this dude though. I think he more just rocked him, as an explosive end to the chapter. He'll probably either shake it off and retreat or comeback with some special ability.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on August 03, 2015, 11:36:31 AM
My rage is pacified by an epic entrance from a character. I'm pretty sure Natsu had building melty powers though. I hope he isn't weaker than the dude again.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Synctual on August 03, 2015, 12:29:35 PM
Alright, Ajeel wasn't one shotted after all! ;D Not only that, but Laxus makes one heck of an entrance. Good show, jolly good show.

One thing I wanted to point out though, Gajeel, Ajeel, and Yajeel. I'm thinking "Couldn't Mashima have chosen better names for them?" Gajeel is fine of course, but Ajeel and Yajeel being introduced in the same arc; only one chapter apart, confused me a bit. I was thinking it was a translation error, but I guess not.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Aozora on August 03, 2015, 01:06:47 PM
I think it may be a translation error. The MangaStream translation has the sand dude's name as "Azir" which makes more sense cause - I don't know if you've played League of Legends - but the sand character in that game is named Azir, as well. As for Yajeel, I'm not sure.

But yeah, Laxus badass as always.

Post by: suuper-san on August 30, 2015, 04:35:52 PM
it looks like its building up nicely to some good battles, hopefully :P
but the power levels are a bit messed up , like are FT stronger or arent they
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on August 31, 2015, 07:17:24 AM
I don't know, that's everyone's question.

Man even the latest chapter was awesome. I have a feeling it's sent shockwaves through the FT database. I anticipate several fanarts.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: suuper-san on August 31, 2015, 08:32:20 AM

i think of fanarts a lot, but hardly draw them because i think it wont look like the character but i might have a go :P

Post by: Synctual on September 15, 2015, 04:41:37 AM
The hype level is over 9000! xD

I'm really hyped for this war, probably the most I've been hyped in this entire series. The Fairy Tail Guild is outmatched so much, it's insane to think that they'll even stand a chance. So I'm gonna be thinking throughout the entire war, "who's gonna die first". I don't think it'd make much sense for Fairy Tail to have this huge war with an empire that outmatches them, yet nobody dies. I'd be pretty upset if that did happen. However, I still have one question.

Where the hell is Gildarts?!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: newartriot on September 15, 2015, 09:44:23 PM
if this is the final battle, i hope gildarts will join the war
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on September 16, 2015, 12:07:04 PM
I expect it will be really enjoyeable to see, but I don't trust FT to give me a truly tense finish. Even if characters die it's not in Mashima to let that be without some resurrection no jutsu.

But I know what I read Fairy Tail for. I will have my gripes against power of friendship and the like but it has it's moments and it's fun to read. I'll be looking forward to the final battle.

Other guilds have obviously got to pitch in too! I thought the dragon festival would be somewhere else though.

Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on September 20, 2015, 07:11:07 AM
yeah business has definitely picked up. I sorta like the sudden invasion. Granted, theres not been much of a build to the 12. But I think it actually works. Since we know Zeref and they're mysterious, we just know that they're supposedly ridiculously powerful, making them fearsome.

One thing though, Bloodman? BaddMan? Dem names though
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion

I too thought the Dragon Festival would be elsewhere. I was expecting Fairy Tail to take the fight to Alvarez, but this is cool too. Magnolia is a big city after all.

Still waiting for Gildarts though and now I wanna see what Gray has up his sleeve.

I have been infected with shipping mania. I suspect Natsu and Gray are going after their targets after this battle is done!

Something occured to me: The stuff Lucy is writing in her diary is pretty sensitive information as far as the guild is concerned. Well I know this is a shounen and something like that will never be brought up but her writing about Fairy Heart seemed unprofessional haha.

Gildarts would indeed be awesome to see.

Would be awesome for the next chapter to open and suddenly one of those flying ships explode and Gildarts is there when the smoke clears!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on September 20, 2015, 08:11:58 AM
That needs to happen.

You know it's funny that Gildarts tried to take on Acnologia. The fact he survived shows how insanely powerful he is but still.

Oh by the way are any of you guys reading the spinoffs?
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Synctual on September 20, 2015, 08:49:38 AM
I haven't read any of the spinoffs myself, sadly. I should probably get around to reading them though. I heard some interesting things about Fairy Tail Zero and Ice Trail.  :hmm:
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on September 20, 2015, 09:33:09 AM
Yeah, I liked Ice Trail, and Fairy Tail Zero does show the first meeting between the first and zeref
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Vacant on September 20, 2015, 11:00:30 AM
finished zero and ice trail. Need to check out the one about sting and rogue though.

They're not essential reading, but Zero shows the history of Mavis and founding of FT, so it was an interesting read. Ice trails Greys journey to Fairy Tail and its a fun little tale.

Well, I read the latest chapter. It was good, but the end, I'm not really happy about. I thought we were gonna get a good against all odds type war, but now there's about to be a "battle" in a tub.

I get the feeling it should be something I should laugh at, but I also get the feeling it's just super fanservice. I guess it's just a bit weird for a war to be taking place and there's two people preparing to have a battle of some kind in a tub. Talk about unexpected. :notunderstand:

Natsu seems to get more mature on this chapter . he keep his cool
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on October 12, 2015, 03:37:42 PM
Yeah at least.

But still, the tub thing has completely drained me.

Sound the horns and prepare your battle cries. It's time!  :swordfight:

The fact that you were fired up like this even feels a bit sad haha.

I guess I didn't really expect anything great, but still...
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Synctual on October 12, 2015, 04:58:05 PM
I fooled myself into thinking we would get a grand war somewhere along the lines of Marineford, but nowhere near as epic of course. I just wanted Mashima to throw away the fanservice for this last arc, but even that was too much to ask for.  :(

Now nakama powerups are to be expected. Man, I know why I read Fairy Tail, but at the same time I question it, haha.

come on Gildarts! show up already!
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on October 20, 2015, 07:17:01 AM
Looking at the title of the latest chapter and just feeling nothing.  I mean I just have nothing to say.

The punch was epic though haha.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Synctual on October 20, 2015, 07:35:09 AM
I have to say, I like naked women just as much as the next guy, but come on! Mashima even went catgirl on us!

I also wasn't expecting Lucy to try and kill Brandish like that. But honestly, I had a hard time taking that scene seriously because they were naked, haha.

At least we got an awesome punch from Natsu, and Erza went in for the kill, so I guess that's cool.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on October 20, 2015, 07:46:12 AM
Kill? They're all just fleshwounds! Only Zeref has actually killed anyone before haha. Even Lucy would've just nicked her or something haha
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Synctual on October 20, 2015, 07:52:17 AM
Yeah, that's true. Darn it! Why won't anyone die!? Call me crazy, but I want more than just bloodshed, I want death! It's not a real war unless there's serious loss.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on October 20, 2015, 08:25:15 AM
Don't count on it. Edo tensei will come along and make everything better. I mean I knew Gray would be ressurected after he died. It was too obvious haha.

This is why I really prefer Rave Master. Things felt like they had more impact. From what I can tell though not many people enjoy that one.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: Synctual on October 20, 2015, 08:43:24 AM
Yeah, Rave Master was a great series, better than FT imo. Even though Haru was revived in the end, it was really emotional for me.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on October 20, 2015, 08:59:52 AM
I really felt for that character yeah. The battles felt really great
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on November 01, 2015, 01:57:12 AM
Okay, I have my gripes with FT, but this guys' output is amazing! Either that or the scanlators are slow? In any case lot's of content in two chapters.

Nothing overly epic, but they were a fun read. I laughed
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on November 16, 2015, 01:16:13 PM
I was a bit perturbed by the numerous ecchi shots to show a magical prisoner but hey Mashima! I accept that I am reading an ecchi shounen fantasy now.

Just gotta say Natsu is awesome. Finally a protagonist who gets it! Go straight for the enemy! Gotta give props for that one man hahaha. Serious props.

Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on November 23, 2015, 08:50:08 AM
Great chapter. Natsu can really turn it up when he wants to. I sometimes get so into looking for actual violence that I forget the fun of an honest ass-whooping, no matter how played down it looks. (Always loved the sphagetti sandal effect from Asterix). Looking forward to seeing Natsu's trump card.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: NO1SY on December 15, 2015, 09:53:22 PM
So the latest chapter kinda felt to me like the series getting a bit wrapped up in it's own bull...

Not going to spoil anything, but I kinda feel like this piece of backstory was pulled out of someone's ass to create a catch 22... I don't think it's particularly a bad idea per se, but it feels like it was pulled out of thin air a bit.

I also don't know if it is fully congruent with the story told so far and if it makes chronological sense... but it's too late at night for me to actually work it out...

Feeling like FT is falling into a bit of a Bleach Trap, where everything is going to have to be solved by some form of luck and coincidence as opposed to anything meaningful...
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on December 17, 2015, 02:03:15 AM
Indeed. I didn't feel satisfied or twisted by that at all. The genius of having Natsu meet up with the big bad immediately had me hoping he'd do something different, but nope.

In Bleach you could say this is the Juha Bach moment when Ichigo has his sword broken for his Bankai out of nowhere because of some past relevant information he was not aware of...
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on December 19, 2015, 11:31:34 AM
Sigh... Let me guess, Lucy saves her and gets all the information on her mother's celestial magic, maybe even obtaining her key.

Epic magic being used!

Haha Gajeel looks like he's out for the count. He's definitely being ressurected though.

Love how Acnologia left a hole in the floor with just ONE PUNCH

*Mentally forces self to forgive FT for making no 'death' consequential.

*Fails

Guh. I'll finish the manga anyways, but damn there's like no stakes at all hahaha! At this point I'd even settle for some sort of interesting character change, otherwise that epic feel from battle just feels pointless darnit haha.

I feel you dude but you just gotta look at Fairy Tail like a constant fourth-wall break. Just considering all the T&A and 5th grade humor, Mashima is constantly reminding us not to take this story seriously. This is not the type of story that's gonna have high stakes, and it's not because Mashima can't write serious stuff. I don't doubt his writing ability. Just look at this chapter for instance - I don't think anybody expected the whole geography altering scenario which I thought was pretty cool.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on June 30, 2016, 07:21:03 PM
Haha, and the resurrected character is even more important now.

Man, Rave Master blew me away. I still don't feel the epicness of an ending manga, but if there is something I can commend Mashima for, it's his output. Dude is a monster.

Did anyone read the omake? *nosebleed*

Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on August 01, 2016, 02:19:02 PM
Did he break the magic before he launched it or just as he did it? That was one mighty punch.

Is that perv assassin old man also resurrected or just himself? I sort of got lost a bit there.

Forgot that kids' name but it's an interesting how he's been around since the very first chapters. Not a lot happened this chapter, but I suspect ther'll be much epicness in the next .
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on August 09, 2016, 04:26:47 AM
Between Gildarts' epic fist and Invels' one finger ice magic swipe I'm pretty stoked for the next fight.

Spoiler
Gotta say though, the whole blushing while being tortured and nude during transformation takes away from the action sometimes. Dammit Mashima be subtle sometimes.

Noooo Juvia!

Damn, I know it's kicking a dead horse at this point but I'm not even remotely worried that she's dead. The set up for it was interesting though, and I like that the power of the magician was absolute. Looking forward to this show down.

Post by: Synctual on August 29, 2016, 06:22:39 PM
I gotta admit, it was pretty sad to see my favorite girl go, but I have my doubts and I think she'll be revived. If she is revived, the whole flashback to panels of "Gruvia" moments would've been for naught haha.

But I'm excited to see Gray lay down a beating on this guy.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on August 29, 2016, 11:13:28 PM
If it sticks then it'll be a tough chapter for sure. I don't mind her silliness haha.

It'll be nice for sure. I did love the set up to the fight. They're going to be some pretty epic fights to look forward to

@lego maybe because be broke out from the anti-magic restraints? but true there was hardly any physical damage to call him a monster, maybe more psychological.....

Yeaup, looks like it. The thing is I'm so traumatized by how meaningless death is in FT I can't even respect the old ji-saan anymore... *sniff* I really want to lower the bar and be okay with the chapters but I think FT just screwed around too much for too long.

I'm hoping that I'm going Naruto on this... As in I hated the war arc when it was getting ridiculous.

come on WHAT!?

Glad to see I'm not the only one who really thought that part was unnecessary. I don't know if it's fanservice, Mashima being Mashima, or if it was supposed to be funny. But I found it cringey if I'm honest.
Title: Re: Fairy Tail Manga Chapter Discussion

Well of course she's always loved her daughter. That's why she tried to kill her with a meteor. I'd laugh, but I don't know how anymore hahaha. Oh man Fairy Tail...
