I'm all the way caught up.

I have been for ages.






Speculation: what happened to the dragons? And why the loli dragon slayer? That's just silly. She should be an Erza type: hot, strong, and has a strong will. Just like the other two. We can skimp on the strong will, if we have to, and show her growth, but I don't like it that we have a loli dragonslayer. mad


I assume the dragons are captured by an even "higher" evil power that we haven't seen yet or we have seen but is pretending to be good. (The new head of the magic council?)

But we already have an Erza, and Wendy's just a kid. Plus role-wise she's healbot instead of asskicker.

Also I suspect she's sort of the new 'Lucy'- Lucy's growing more powerful and a new newbie is needed.

Wasn't there a bit of what was implied to be two dragons talking at one point? I don't think they're captured, I think they're off doing something against a much greater threat.

Well, Natsu and Gajeel are very similar in type: never give up until the very last breath, super strong willed, very rowdy, loyal as fudge, etc. So I see no reason to have a strong hot female type.

And, ditto on your second point. But, Lucy still has plenty of room to grow.


That makes me think: I would LOVE an RPG of this game. Singler player, of course. It would be fun as crap to make it similar to the Fable RPG games: take jobs for the guild and complete them one by one and gain experience along the way while solving your personal story on the side. Sounds fun. I would play that game. sad

It was...it was a dark character type that we don't know much about that was after them or something.

Did some reading: It's Zeref...unconfirmed, but very directly implied. They are leaving humans alone for some reason.

Wasnt sure what I felt with Lisanna returning. Her death was massive development for Mirajane and Elfman, and must of done something to Natsu[love interest?]. And a decade of her thought to be dead was blown away in less then a chapter. Seemed a bit fast and sudden.

Also bothered that Mystogun is gone and Gildarts is damaged. Better things could of been done with them :/

Mystogun was largely a cypher prior to that anyway. Gildarts... damaged but not out of action, he's still a badass smile

just watched the latest ep and it was awesome, also I thought Natsu had a permanent upgrade when he consumed etherion, just that he didn't display the power he had when he fought Jellal against Laxus...

Lisanna was definitely Natsu's love interest. They were just about BF/GF before she died.

No, it's no different than eating fire, and since it was all sorts of concentrated magic instead of pure fire it even weakened him for awhile after due to health effects (note how he was out of it early in the arc).


That's the real advantage of Dragon Slayers; they can amp their magic and their health by eating whatever their element is, either for simple recovery or even a significant overcharge. But it does have it's own severe limits.

I see...

I wonder why the other mages don't train as much to increase the potency of their magic, I noticed during the fighting festival arc that some have the potential to be really powerful...

What makes you think they don't?

Training to increase magic power probably takes a lot of work and time, and from what we've seen of mages, most FT ones are decidedly above-average, a lot of the ones in Eisenwald could only summon magic swords and similar low-level stuff. Getting to Natsu and Gray levels has to take some serious practice and dedication.

I dunno, most are always at the guild's bar, I don't blame them though, with Cana and Mirajane always there...

Hey, so are the main characters a lot of the time, everyone hangs out in between missions. Granted, some of 'em are there more than others, like Macao, but a lot come and go, you don't always see the dancing guy or the telepath or the gunslingers around.


Cana's supposed to be one of the stronger guild members too, even though she's a primary hanger-out person.

really, didn't know that, I just thought she was one of the youngest to join the guild...

now that Fairy Tail has usurped Bleach's place as one of the big 3, they should start making movies...

Cana's been in the Guild the longest of her generation and is about Erza's age, so that's a fair amount of time to get better.

In the upcoming arc she becomes a candidate for the S-class trials.

We just haven't gotten a chance to see her fight in the anime.

too lazy to start the manga where the anime left off so I read the newest chapter, and it looks like things are about to get cracking...

and Evergreen is looking soooo fine, I'll prolly be rooting for her and Elfman as well as Levy and Gajeel if only for the lulz...

Since when? Fairy Tail seems like Rave Master won't last until a 100 episodes, it's to unoriginal to even be main stream. People already hate the manga. It's not replacing Bleach in terms of media success, Natsu in particular has nothing that makes him stand out from the holy trinity. Ninja's, Pirates, and Shinigami's are all that people care about. Mages? Go read Harry Potter or Vinland Saga.

Since... in sales, it has surpassed Bleach in Japan by quite a bit.



Real numbers from a month or two back:

Sales Ranking Series by Series
*1, 15,220,095 One Piece
*2, *4,178,598 Naruto
*3, *3,616,942 Fairy Tail
*4, *3,169,048 Fullmetal Alchemist
*5, *3,029,300 Nodame Cantabile
*6, *2,626,932 Bleach
*7, *2,533,556 Kimi ni Todoke
*8, *2,376,060 Gintama
*9, *2,083,508 Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
10, *1,574,448 Bakuman


You might not like it, but it's got chops smile

Fun with a good cast (Erza!) and good stories matters more than pure originality. Being somewhat similar to other good things isn't bad if it's also a good thing smile
