>Natsu after timeskip
>Still looks the fucking same
Isn't FT one of the Kodansha's weekly flagship?
I don't think it will end soon, this shit is popular as ever, monthly spin off/anime airing/and it had double chapter publication for 3 successives weeks
Hahahaha, so you just erased from your mind the 7 years timeskip that wasn't a timeskip because it didn't mean shit for the main cast since nobody aged? Mashima doesn't give a damn
If you haven't noticed mashimas only real talent is in drawing women. For everything else all he can do is follow word-for-word wikihows "drawing and writing shounen manga" page.
Weekly Shounen Magazine itself has Hajime no Ippon, and that series seems like it will go on forever; Kodansha has several other magazines with their own flagships, Vinland Saga, Sidonia no Kishi and others.
How did it not make any sense? The Edolas FT was pretty much bizarro world, with everyone inverted, main Wendy being a polite loli having a bizarro endowed woman who keeps chariming everyone around her akes perfect sense.
You think Kana is pregnant after the timeskip?
Consindering she is a whore and all.
No the thing is all the counterparts had around the same age. Making the polite loli a whore would make absolut sense like you said, but changing her age while not touching the others age is retarded.
Luffy actually involved, has been getting shortter and more jovial as the series goes on; during Ennies Lobby he looked like a grown ass man, after that Oda kept making him younger looking.
Guru guru Mawaru
Then plase educate yourself.
>Shounen, Seinen, Shoujo, Josei, Kodomo
Demographics, not Genres.
>What defines my favorite series' demographic?
The Magazine it is published in, not the actual content of the series.
>But Minami Ke is just girls doing random shit, why is it Seinen? While Death Note is deep and dark but is a Shounen, it doesn't make sense!
What your filthy western values think doesn't mean shit, it is a Japanese classification and that's final.
That became obvious with the advent of Sabretooth, the World had to balance itself because Natsu and his gang was just too powerful by then, yet it fell flat its face because Natsu, Erza and etc. still easily fucked everyone else by getting an instant Power-up, that Second Magic Reserve bullshit, so much of an asspull that Mashima never talked about it again.
>Every night they schlicked thinking about their man
Are we supposed to think Natsu/Lucy is going to be a thing or is it just ship tease that won't lead to anywhere
The fact Natsu cleaned and fixed Lucy's room was pretty nice actually, easily makes it up for just leaving a letter, which was for the best anyway since Lucy would try to follow him if he said goodbye in person.
The shipping war is too strong on Fairy Tail and Mashima won't take the risk to make canon couples.
Just to remind you, his wife got some death treats by some Natsu/Lisana shippers at some point.
No, she is onto Jellal's dick, in fact the only flat out romantic scene that has ever happened in this series so far was the Almost-kiss scene between Jellal and Erza, then he backed off becaue he felt Erza was just too good for him.
Nah Lucy is onto that Natsu D.
It was a personality based bizarro world - and no one else had their age bizarro'd.
So no, it didn't make sense - if the others had had their ages altered then sure, but they didn't, so it doesn't, and you're wrong.
Let's take a look at the last big shonen who end this year aka Naruto.
The shipping war was really strong like ten time stronger than Fairy tail and in the end, it end with a big orgy and every body pair up with anybody.
>Mashima won't take the risk to make canon couples.
Hahaha, what? Mashima doesn't even make the character have any competiton, regardless of what rabid shipperfags like argue about.
Natsu x Lucy
Erza x Jellal
Grey x Juvia
Gajeel x Levy
Elfman x Evergreen
Laxus x Marijane
All straight as an arrow, no competition whatsoever.
>Natsu can finally fly, again.
>Lisanna grows her hair
>Bisca and Alzack make more babies
>Elf man and Evergreen make babies
>Gildarts returns to the guild
>Levy's breast grows a little
This thing got dropped as soon as Loki became a Celestial Spirit, only Happy brings this up for laughs.
Like the implication that Natsu and Lisanna had a thing before "she died", when she was revealed to be fine and dandy, nothing from alleged case got brought up to maybe form a triangle between Natsu, Lucy and Lisanna.
Natsu and Lucy have no blockroads whatsoever.
>tfw Ultear x Meredy could have been the ultimate yuri ship
...Was there a 2nd timeskip? I remember there was a timeskip when an island jumped forward in time basically, so it made sense for Natsu to look the same. Did they do it AGAIN?
Correct, except for Natsu, thats wrong. Dude cant see girls of his guild as women.
>Perfectly knows every part of Erza's body, even had a close view of her vagoo
>Has seen Lucy naked several times. And felt too.
>Have seen other fairies naked too.
>404: manhood not found.
>After all that, he gets aroused with Gildarts cheap porn magazines.
The nakama power is too strong in this one.
First spoilers out, can someone translate this shit?
lol I'm sure you know Kishi had so much complaints about that bullshit he pulled on Ultear.
I'm sure during the timeskip Ultear uses some kind of magic to get her youth back,
or Jellal knew about this so he found the solution.
Your reasoning for that being? Haru from RAVE literally died, became star dust, vaporised, yet came back just in time to marry Elie and make babies in the end.
He got a hairclip and is now known as Natsu THE S.U.M.M.E.R.
When FT and RAVE made a crossover Mashima pulled no punches in showing that both series are very similar, Elie and Lucy flat said said Haru and Natsu are their White Knights for fuck's sake.
Just accept things won't go the way you think it will.
Need more details on how this cum commodore was pre-made.
Fairy tail is probably the worst shounen out there, even worse than naruto.
Go watch Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, that one is good, or, Bleach if you want mediocrity, Naruto if you're curious i guess.
Point is, Fairy Tail should be at the bottom of your list.
. Natsu ,Happy and Gildarts met Exceed in East Forest
. fairy Tail master Makarov decide to rebuild Fairy Tail guild after one year
.new Magic Council member Arrived to Magnolia Town and they give Makarov Special stone engraved with the name of E.N.D
.Makarov shocked and he Regretted because he decided to leave Natsu go alone
.At the end of Chapter Zeref opens the book of E.N.D
Next chapter 419 with 33 pages
in name the beginning of end
Laxus failing to kill everyone with fairy law because deep down he's a sweetheart.
A guy was about to win a fighting tournament against FT but kneeled down crying for no reason and lost.
Erza literally actually wins an impossible fight just because she's Erza.
Igneel reveals that he had been inside natsu all along to develop antibodies in his body against a sickness that would have turned him into a dragon.
Everyone goes to mist gun's world because the king of that world is stealing magic from this world, fairy tail gets rekt but then power of friendship saves the day.
Next arc the previous master of Fairy Tail attacks a shrine of the first master of fairy tail because he is looking for Zeref, the previous master rekts Makarov, then fairy tail beats the dark guild, then hades(the previous master) rekts everyone in fairy tail, then power of friendship saves the day. Then a big black dragon appears and nukes the entire island just for kicks.
Everyone survives because magic but there's a 7 year timeskip. Fairy Tail is now shit(since all the good mages got nuked by the dragon) and a new guild called Sabretooth is the top guild, there's a magic tournament and fairy tail goes there to rekt sabretooth, they rekt sabretooth. Meanwhile the king is coming up with a plan to save the world from an invasion of ten thousand dragons, blahblahblah a bad guy summons 7 dragons, they can't defeat the dragons but they send them back to the past or future or something.
Then demons want to erase magic and they rekt fairy tail, but then power of friendship saves the day, turns out the dragons that made the dragon slayers were inside the dragon slayers, so Natsu and Igneel finally reunite, but then the Black dragon kills Igneel.
That's it more or less, spoilers: It's shit.
To be fair, he would've lost. Power of friendship is unstoppable. Besides, even without power of friendship
>implying he could've won against Laxus and Erza at the same time
Sounds awful save for Fairy Tail getting rekt, glad I dropped it.
>A guy was about to win a fighting tournament against FT but kneeled down crying for no reason and lost
and all the rest >>
I've obviously watched FMA:B and SE, but I don't see them as equals to the likes of OP/FT/naruto/bleach. Maybe Ippo would work too but manga form.
I want to pick up an anime, not manga. Would One piece be the better of these 4? From the tidbits I've gathered from the last 7 years in this shithole, it does actually seem to be the universally more liked and has the best characters. It does have bonclay.
Whoa man, are you some Aya Hirano knight? Many new people in here don't even know about scandal, and those who do don't seem to give a shit anymore.
Dude is obviously just basing his argument on Lucy alone, despite recent developments with her just focusing her attention on Natsu, earlier in the series she would glance at other dudes as well.
There is this guy called Sting.
Basically while his guild was fighting Fairy Tail,he came up with a clever and ingenious plan: doing nothing.
Since FT is stupid,his plan worked! The Fairy Tail's were so exhausted by their fights that Sting (the guy) could've easily beat them,or so it was said.
But the FT do an intimidating pose!
Jesus Magic Christ!
Sting kneels down,cries,and surrenders.
At the end of the tournament this nigga is all like "ok i win, because i just have to beat the 5 fairy tail members who are half dead" so Laxus, Erza, Gray and 2 people i can't remember(or maybe it was just 3 whatever) stand in front of him and go
>lmao are u serious ok bring it punk ass bitch
And then he starts crying and gives up.
This is a manga where the protagonist, quite literally, drew from his empty mana pool by taking the mana he would have regened the next day.
The guy just saved himself a beating.
Minerva was their technical 'leader' worth 5 points, and was said to be stronger than the dragon twins by one of their teammates.
The Guild Master never did anything other than almost get his ass beat by Natsu.
You don't read Bleach because it's good, you read bleach so you can read the bleach threads on /a/.
Yukino came from the tournament arc from the main series.
Angel is also from the main series.
So I don't know who you're talking about unless it was Michelle Lobster and she doesn't look or act anything like Yukino.
He seemed pretty meta when he came up with a plan that centered around cherry picking and then just gave up when he noticed their hp bars being still too high.
As expected of a dragon slayer, he's been through some raid wipes and knows what's up. His party was worthless, so it was time to bail!
Daily reminder that Happy's gonna get himself cucked by Tyrone.
Tyrone is going after a higher prize
>Yukino came from the tournament arc from the main series.
>Angel is also from the main series.
You don't have a need to tell me that. I know.
I was talking about this lady. She has similar traits to that of Yukino's.
Well, you have cc and efficient attacks for trash mobs but on bosses your fighters use their best move. Natsu and Erza are fighters so they are boring as fuck. It can't be herped.
By your logic the MC of GBFT has more than one trick. He can punch, kick, spin, and hadouken with a phoenix. And all of them come in fire form or sparkles just like Natsu's fire and lightning!
He's a one trick pony, and a boring one at that. Don't argue semantics it just lowers your standards and proves my point.
Fairy Tail is shit but Mashima always deliver delicious semen demons.
> makes guild full of semen demons
You can always count on Mashima.
You seem to be confusing an attack with an attack style, and a trick with a magical style. Yes the characters have one style, but that isn't necessarily bad: see the X-Men where the characters have one power style each but can do multiple things with it. Fairy Tail has so many actual problems with it that sperging over minor preferences just weakens your complaints.
The real problem with Natsu is that there are 7+ Dragon Slayers with minor variations (Wendy doesn't even support much anymore) which is like having 20 Ryu clones in Street Fighter.
Yeah. Fairy Tail disbanded after the Tartarus arc and the key members have decided to branch out and go their own way.
The next chapter will take place a year later. So this time they will age a bit.
it's kinda funny that almost any manga/anime characters die stabbed in side (at least in shounen series)
While normally it would mean bleeding too death in couple of minutes (injury to kidneys) of long death due to ruptured intestines
He did a good job with her in particular
That's how timeskips work, dude. Plus there was the Gildartz+Natsu chapter in the middle.
It was a good concept to let the rest of the world change and catch up, but most of the potential was wasted.
Mite b cool
Grandine was a human instead of a 400-year-old dragon. The only rules are in your head.
Pretty much, although Miraxus has only been teased a bit compared to the others.
HiroMashima. There, now you remember.
That was a jump boost, as I recall.
I usually recommend the manga first for various reasons, although the anime does have nice music. Just be aware the first 10 eps of the anime probably have the worst QUALITY.
Just fucking read it if you're so curious.
It's not that he was afraid of losing. His original plan was to show Lector his new strength by winning in a big final fight, but he realized beating up a barely-standing FT would just make him a heel, which made him feel unworthy of meeting Lector again.
>implying lumen histoire isn't frozen ass mavis simply stuck as a giant ass lacrima magic battery that is used to nuke the shit out of things
>implying mavis won't come back to life at some point because lolmashima.
What the fuck is the draw with fairy tail anyway?
Shit got wacky in Eidolas, got even stupider post time skip, and is full on fan service which is complete shit except for me wanting wendy to fart in my face, dominate me, and bear my children.
Dude, we had that shit figured out the first time E.N.D. was mentioned.
Unless you're surprised about ETHERIOUS as opposed to EVIL natsu dragneel.
>Responding an entire thread late
Feels appropriate for slowpokes like this.
I think only Franmalth and maybe Sayla are still alive.
>But timeskips are just an excuse to give characters a new look
Yeah, thats usually, but Mashima just does it because...I don't know he thinks is dramatic or something perhaps? I don't get half the decissions he makes.
With other authors you think "that makes no sense" with Mashime things make sense but you think "what was the point of that".
Like when all the Lissana thing, is not that it didn't make sense is just...there was no reason for such intrincate subplot in the parallel universe just to add a background character.
I kind of hope Ivan doesn't redeem himself. No matter what Mashima does with him it is going to be clichéd as fuck. Either he has a last minute "I'm sorry" moment like Laxus and Raven Tail turns good, he has the same moment and sacrifices himself for some reason or he ends up getting consumed by his lust for Lumen Histoire and it destroys him. Given the choice I'd go with the latter.
I wonder where he is even going with Lumen Histoire.
Lucy's mother will end up being some kind of celestial spirit queen and when Lucy discovers her true heritage she will learn a super secret awesome new attack or learn how to summon the true secret ultimate celestial spirit.
>Like when all the Lissana thing, is not that it didn't make sense is just...there was no reason for such intrincate subplot in the parallel universe just to add a background character.
The Lissana thing just happened because the editor liked Lissana a lot and he wanted her back alive so Mashima brought her back.
Yes, because Lucy doesn't have enough "choosen one" events.
Worse thing is that I totally can see something like that happening and Lucy ending being some kind of cosmic entity.
Nothing wrong with this little timeskip honestly.
Its ridiculous if everything happens one after another. Even DBZ had them skip time after every arc once they got super strong.
The 2 big bads just retreated at the end of the last arc, no reason they'd start shit a week later.
Lucy started the series with 2 gold keys and ended up with 10 before they 7 year skip.
Apparently only 3-4 people ever bothered to use that type of magic and she beat most of them and took their keys.
