Mangaka: Hiro Mashima Title: Tear Rating: 7.5/10
Synopsis: This week’s Fairy Tail, which came out EARLY (woot!!) starts off with a nosebleed…but that’s for Random Rant Time. We’ll get back to that, I assure you. Anyway, we really start of with some boring stuff. Random chatting between Gray, Cana and Lucy as they search for the other Kin of Purgatory. Cana suggests they split up (with some Lucy boob groping). So Gray went one way and Lucy and Cana stayed together. We then change location to a more exciting part! Erza-sama’s fight is FINALLY being aired as she and Lluvia clash against Meredy. Meredy, we discover, is a knight mage of sorts as she uses magic blades (poor little girl, using blades against Erza-sama…people just won’t learn). So of course Erza dodges them all effortless but Lluvia got caught up…and injured. Yes. Water-bodied Lluvia got INJURED. What’s up with that?
Then, we return to Natsu who’s chasing Ultear’s scent. He serves for some early comic relief as he trips over nothing and rolls down a hill (lol at his face, bottom panels, page 7). At the base he encounters Ultear (can’t believe they brought this psycho back to soon, **sigh**, I hate her) and Zeref. A huge fight ensues between Ultear and Natsu, as Ultear reveals her fullname and her status: Leader of the 7 kin of Purgatory (that explains why her level of insanity is so far above the rest. The crazier you are the higher your status in Purgatory, I guess). Ultear then goes on to say that Zeref is hers and she won’t hand him over to anyone (no-one else wants him you psycho bitch). Natsu declines on having him, stating that he simply wants to beat the living crap out of him (well he didn’t say that, but I know that’s what he meant). That’s when it turned “serious” with Ultear getting a classic demented look on her face and reminding us of the strength of her Arc of Time. She releases a powerful new move that we’ve never seen before that literally….READ THE CHAPTER!
Another change of location and we see a small base that the others have set up to heal the wounded (Gajeel, Mira etc). ELFMAN!!!! walks in carrying Evergreen (MY FAIRIES LIVE!!! YAYY) but is badly beaten, telling everyone that it is useless, Grimoire Heart is too strong, shedding manly Elfman tears. Levi refuses to hear it though, insisting that Fairy Tail needs to unite and stop being so stupidly selfish because the S-class exams. (Damn right Levi!) Finally, We make a FINAL scene switch back to Cana and Lucy’s location where they are discussing the riddle of the exam. Lucy (showing that she has a brain above her boobs and under the stereotypical blonde hair) explains what she has discovered about it to Cana but then she suffers a horrible betrayal as Cana…READ THE CHAPTER
Lucy is left there, knocked out, as one of the Kin, Kain Hikaru, stands over her looking like a royal pervert preparing for his perverted meal. -_-. “Wow-wee” the man said…really Kain?
Best Character: ERZA-SAMA!!! kya!! for being so Erza and cool (ok I’m stopping my fangirlism). Natsu, for making me laugh at his stupid antics per usual. But all props really goes to Levi for slapping some sense into the fairies and telling them what they need to do. Don’t falter now guys! Remember you are strongest together. Have you forgotten this!?:
YOU ARE FAIRY TAIL!! Nothing can stop you guys when you work together. More of this please!?
Worst Character: U-L-T-E-A-R…da bitch -_-. I hate her f’real you know. I can’t believe I had to suffer her psychotic mug so quickly again. Natsu just needs to hurry up and burn her. CANA as well. Omg, I love her to death but she needs a HARD slap. I can’t believe she did that! SO disappointed. PUNISHMENT!
Likes: Erza-sama being Erza-sama. Natsu being funny. Levi having a cool moment. Elfman and Evergreen returning alive (mostly).
Dislikes: Ultear. Cana being stupid. They also had a bit of rambling in this chapter. But it was about necessary stuff, it wasn’t overkill and it’s all setting up for the next chapter I think, so hopefully that will be an 8 or an 8.5/10 XD. So excited.
More Chapter Ratings
§eraph: 7.5/10 – I found this chapter rather interesting…lots of different things going on…the tension continues to build…I want to slap Cana. However let us all hold hands and pray for Lucy…that poor unfortunate little helpless soul…lol. Oh, I want Gray. BACK OFF mu§e!” *evil stare*
§tiggles: 7.5/10 – Lots of stuff going on, but that’s fine. Good chapter methinks. Boobs – I mean Lucy does a Sherlock Holmes :O lol. Wait…I just re-read. Didn’t notice Cana groped Lucy…11/10!!! lol
Random Rant Time: As I sharpen my knife to help §eraph commit sepukku for daring to approach my Gray-sama, whom I spotted first in all his sexy splendour, I say this. This cover page, **sigh**, made me get SUCH a nosebleed. I think I might have to frame it. He looks sooo sexy and cool. Lluvia would be sooo pleased. I am all for LluviaxGray…Lluvia can have him…§eraph can’t! >: | I shall only give him up for Lluvia! They are sooo cute together. **sigh**
So adorable. Gray needs to stop being so dense.
Also, seeing my Erza-sama in action pleased me greatly, even though she only had two pages **sigh**. Hopefully more next week!
