This Fairy Tail Chapter was lacking something from the start. I thought it might just be one of those fan service chapters Mishima puts in every now and again but luckily it wasn’t just that.
Erza and Mirajane actually teamed up for once. 2 S-Class Mages working together… That is totally cool. And then they meet the old man who was once the magic council chairman and he seems to not have any vital information.
I thought this strange considering he was the chairman but didn’t think much of it…
He was old and dementia came to mind…
However, I was obviously wrong about it. That bastard… But I’ll talk about that later.
Erza and Mirajane then began to kick fodder ass. I mean these things came from all around and Erza and Mirajane were totally in kick-ass mode and took them all out.
There were a few more scenes although not as significant.
One where Elfman continues to plead with the ‘pretty horny’ Demon to allow Lisanna to live because obviously he’s going to choke her our sooner or later. She offers him to give up his soul because that’s what you got to do to make a deal with a demon. This shit reminded me of Supernatural but they are demons so it makes sense.
Another involving Mest- I mean Doranbolt as he swore to destroy all the demons himself. I guess Cobra finally spilled the beans in exchange for freedom.
Oracion Seiss were reunited after the council prisons were destroyed. However the Dragon Slayer Cobra took out their previous master and nobody objected. Not even Midnight which I thought was pretty cool.The one in the middle is Midnight with the Master Brain in the top right corner and Cobra with his snake at the bottom.
And then suddenly Jellal pops up… Fangirls Apparently Doranbolt is leaving this task to Jellal.
Natsu, out of all people, suddenly realises the most important thing. Not like we weren’t already thinking it by now… But how does Tartaros know stuff that NOBODY, not even the current Council Members know… Like the ex-chairman’s address.
I realised at this point and suddenly the scene with the tea popped up in my head. He had offered them tea when they had arrived. It’s the most often done trick by the bad guy so yeah…
Both Erza and Mirajane collapse and the chapter ends with Natsu heading for their rescue flying with Happy and the girls…
Our precious girls…
In the fat bastards arms.
KILL HIM NATSU!!!
Mirajane and Erza teaming up! That was just something everybody wanted to see…
Jellal’s return! We all love Jellal!
Oracion Seis reforming! They were damn cool. Especially that Midnight and Cobra. I liked Doranbolt for keeping his word to Cobra although he did have a trump card in his back pocket with Jellal and now Cobra and co are in for a bit of a problem despite gaining their freedom.
The Twist! This was well done. Hadn’t expected it. I mean someone like the former chairman betraying all of humanity and siding with the demons… Now that is something.
The spiked tea trick… That is old and appalling. Uncle Iroh would definitely not approve.
“& THE FUNNY!”
To be honest, there wasn’t anything really funny about this chapter. Which is unusual for Fairy Tail. Although this face… The scene is awful… I mean how despicable can he be, holding our Fairies like that… BUT THAT FACE!!!
Overall, I enjoyed the twist despite the tea trick… I liked the fact we got to see Mirajane and Erza work together although we didn’t get much.
Despite that, at least something actually happened of note. I’ll give it an 8/10
I’m becoming more and more interested on what will happen to Elfman and Lisanna duo. I mean, Lisanna has been so USELESS since she reappeared to this series. I’d like to see them defeat Sayla… but that would be too anticlimactic given that she’s one of the 9 gates.
Anyway, Mirajane… gosh, I want her to play some major part in this arc. Maybe NAkamaTSU will save them but only Erza and then Mira will turn into a real demon LOL. I’m so excited for the next chapter but it won’t be up til next year right? Oh well… too much cliffhangers.
You are so right… Lisanna seems so useless and hardly ever plays an important part. It would be really cool if she does something cool and is able to help defeat Sayla or as I call her ‘The Pretty Horny Demon’ 😛
Mirajane is definitely deserving some more air time. Like she’s so awesomely strong.
