Mangaka: Hiro Mashima Title: “Acnologia” Rating: 7/10
Synopsis: It starts raining and thundering epicly as Natsu decides he’s gonna find Hades to pulverize him, and calls upon his favourite teammates Happy and Lucy to follow him. Charle, Wendy and Panther Lily decide to go with them as the rest of the team at that particular base decide to stay and take care of other business. Blablabla, Comrade-stuff, blablabla.
Anyway, we switch to where Lluvia is still crawling after Meredy demanding that she hand over Zeref. At that point Zancrow (who I’m sure everyone, including me, had completely forgotten about) pops out and starts going off at Meredy for betraying the Kin. He blasts her (and everyone else) with some of his fire. He picks up Zeref and prepares to walk off while breaking Meredy’s heart telling her that Ultear was the one who destroyed her town in the first place. At that moment Zeref wakes up from all the noise (lol, no not really…well, yes maybe really) and READ THE CHAPTER!!! :O Something about Acnologia :p
Another scene switch and we see Gray stumbling along before near collapsing. Luckily, before he fell flat on his face, Erza-sama catches him and upon looking up Gray sees that she was with Natsu and the rest. They all move forward until finally coming before Hades who is prepared to play with them… 😐 Let the massacre begin!
Likes: Hrmmmmm…..When Zeref woke up. It was all mysterious and epic-like…though he still has no control over his magical power it seems. Also liking when all the fighters for this battle came together. Really epic moment, especially the last page where they were all just staring down Hades. Doesn’t matter that they’re all gonna get beaten within their life…the epic eyes always make them seem 10x cooler than they really are. Overall a solid, neat chapter. A nice little break from all the action without being too boring or stupid. Can’t wait for the hype to start back up though.
Dislikes: Not much to dislike. It was a bit of a slow chapter, but after all the drama that was happening before, Hiro probs decided to tone it down before we all died of heart attack from too much excitement. I’m just saying. Looking forward to the final fight and to see what the guild pulls out of their ass though….will get back to this in Random Rant Time. Stay tuned.
More Chapter Ratings:
§eraph: 8/10 – Nice build up. I want to learn more about Zeref. At least he took out one of the enemies. Now they can concentrate on Hades. I suppose this will be where Laxus will make his epic debut in the nick of time? Can’t wait for more!
§tiggles: 7.5/10 – Nice build up here, with all the gang coming back together and such. Also Zeref needs to figure out if he’s awesome or not cuz I can’t lol.
Random Rant Time: So…who else thinks Fairy Tail is gonna get their ass whooped? I mean, you guys know how much I love this guild but honestly? Hades beat Makarov without even trying and Makarov is well…Makarov. In my mind no one can really hold a candle to Makarov but Hades just smacked him down so powerfully I just sat there in shock for like three weeks. I mean…he was basically dead. 😐 So, baring all of that in mind, as many of them as they are, and as strong as I know they are, if they do win, it’s a lie. It’s not realistic. And to top things off they are ALL injured and exhausted. Hades hasn’t lifted a finger since his fight with Makarov…not to mention he didn’t even break a sweat before. They’re doomed. I think the thing we talked about last time…about a character dying may happen during this battle and so far I’m not liking it…We’ll see. I must say though…no matter who he pulverizes. Hades is one epic dude. If only he had stayed good…**sigh**
