Mangaka: Hiro Mashima Title: Fairy Sisters Chapter Rating: 5/10
Synopsis: So, we continue where we left off from last time, Zancrow is down for the count and doesn’t seem likely to get back up anytime soon. Natsu tells Makarov that Fairy Tail should fight and show Grimoire Heart the full power of the guild (WE ARE FAIRY TAIL!) before he collapses like an idiot (oh Natsu, you make me lol.) The manga quickly turns to the next fight, which is sadly not Erza-sama’s fight, but Lisanna and Mira-jane vs Azuma.Well, I say Lisanna and Mira-jane vs Azuma but Lisanna didn’t do anything, which kind of annoyed me, but I’ll get to that later. The girls are getting their booties handed to them so Lisanna begs Mira-jane to use her ultimate transformation Satan Soul.
Mira-jane informs all of us at this point that it is not something she can do over and over again (sadly, as Satan Soul is one smexy transformation). However, from saying something like that so carelessly Azuma finds out who Mira-jane really is (that is bad-ass S Class Demon Mira-jane) and demands a fight with her. To ensure Mira-jane’s full participation he traps Lisanna in a bomb. A desperate fight ensues with Mira-jane quickly powering up her Satan Soul.
Mira-jane cannot defeat Azuma as quickly as she wanted to however, and realises that she is running out of time to save her sister. As the final seconds count down Mira-jane….(READ THE CHAPTER buahahahahha!) The manga continues with another skip to Ultear who is on a search for Zeref (seriously, this woman bothers me, you NEVEr know what she’s up to and I think she’s mentally unstable. Why is she so hung up on Zeref? Hopefully that will be explained next). Today being her lucky day (or not) she stumbles upon a very, veerry angered Zeref (who will probably kill her, lol, not really but who knows?).
Best Character: I dunno for this chapter. I guess Mira?
Likes: Very little. I was very displeased with this chapter. I did like Natsu’s little moment in the beginning when they finished up his fight though, and how he collapsed that was funny. I also liked Mira-jane transforming, but I always like that, I think Demon Mira-jane is sooooooo sexy and soo badass and soo powerful! (even though you didn’t really get to see it in this chapter).
The end was also pretty cool with Zeref being so pissed off at Ultear. Makes one wonder what Hiro-chan is gonna do next.
Dislikes: Prepare for rant. Ok. Here we go.
First of all, I overall didn’t like the chapter. I thought it was a joke and an absolute waste of the 5 extra pages that Hiro-chan got. He’s capable of much better and we all know it. I really don’t know what he was thinking with this one. Not to say it wasn’t a good chapter. It was just flawed all over. Nothing of real significance happened imho, and in one of my friend’s opinion as well. I figure two hardcore fans can’t be wrong.
Second of all, Hiro skimped on this fight. The battle scene was not done well at all. Details were shoddy, the set up was poor, you barely understood what was happening, and half the time it looked as if they weren’t even fighting. It was really disappointing because Mira had transformed and everything and yet you barely saw any of her real power. Tired or not, it should’ve been more of a fight. And this is really upsetting because Hiro usually does really good battle scenes. I mean, just look at last week’s.
Thirdly, I didn’t like how Lisanna just kind of sat there and watched everything unfold. I mean, sure you might say that she was trapped by Azuma’s magic, but seriously? She just kind of let herself be caught, and granted I’ve never really seen Lisanna fight but she has to be stronger than that. She could have at least done something, anything but talk big and then get herself caught. That was a total Sakura (Naruto) moment right there. I mean the chapter is called Fairy Sisters, and while it was all cute and touching that Mira wouldn’t let her younger sister “die” again, they could’ve at least tried to begin to kick some butt with some sister action.
I could go on and on about this forever, but I think I shall end here. My blood pressure is going up again just thinking about this crap. Tch. Hopefully next week’s chapter will be better.
What did you think about this week’s FT chapter? Do you agree with me? Do you think I was being too harsh? Did something bug you in particular? Did you absolutely love something in particular? Let me know!
