Ah Shit, Lucy came to save the day.
That she is.
Lucy is so sexy.
But Mashima should stop this Natsu asspulls and make Fairy Tail great again by returning Gildarts.
>Natsu stealing the spotlight from Lucy.
When will Lucy have her chance to shine?
Out of them all I wasn't expecting Jason Staham to be NAKAMA'd by the nakama master
Also, of course Jason is a fucking retard
>could simply vanish Natsu and Lucy again now that they're out of the clock
>throws a basic knife at Lucy
>won't simply reality wrap natsu out of oblivion for some stupid reason enxt chapter
>will be nakam punch'd in the face
God fucking dammit.
And here I was hoping for Smug Lucy to handle him.
Lucy juggling spirits and spirit dresses would be so fucking cool. Not to mention she's celestial-spirit mage and has some experience with cosmic/space magic. Ehh...
Lucy has one of the coolest abilities, I really wish we could see her fight.
Has she actually fought anyone sins getting her power up?
>Those fodders that are too cowardly to go to the frontlines bragging about 5 Spriggans being defeated and how "we" can still win this even though they've done nothing to help (except Warren and Bisca)
They all deserve to be sent to the Assasin's BDSM dimension
Why does Lucy still get embarrassed? She's probably seen his dick over a billion times by now.
I want to rape Lucy.
It's not really a Deus Ex Machina because Horlogium has saved their asses a bunch of times, so it's been set up. It is stupid how Horlogium basically only shows up whenever it feels like it, because there are many many situations where he would have been useful but he didn't do shit.
My thoughts exactly. I thought this was the perfect match up allowing Lucy to fight an overpowered opponent without having to bullshit too much since her celestial magic is also space magic.
But whatever, guess we will just have Natsu Nakama punch a guy who can reality warp people.
I'm more expecting Lucy to help since her powers are adapted against Jacob.
Still wish Makarov would do something. And is the First really that useless in this form? Does Jacob not understand he almost killed Fairy Hear here?
He lost the whole Fire Dragon King mode power up that was letting him blast Zeref around with ease. He still got a lot stronger on his own though. Pretty much everything that wasn't a "Fire Dragon's King" move was likely all him.
>tfw thought Jacob would be another Franmalth
>jobber who looks retarded and is weak
>actually pretty damn cool and has interesting magic
>Natsu will still fuck him up regardless
Well, back at Tenrou Island he said he could only do that instant save once a day. Thus far he's
-Saved Lucy from Anima
-Saved Wendy from Hades
-Saved Arcadios from lava
-Saved Lucy, Natsu, and Happy from Jacob
All of those were him saving someone from certain death. Most of the other times where it would have been nice if he'd helped out, death wasn't so certain. And with Future Lucy he'd already saved Arcadios not long before, so he'd have used up his once a day save.
Happy was trying to get Lucy to see what a fire dragon's dick looks like, but Lucy didn't want to look.
Her Santa outfit did things to my penis.
I must have fap to that picture 5 times or so during that week.
I even brought the magazine since I was in Japan at the time.
Probably because of his editor.
And anyway, he began doing this kind of stuff in FT. Not like he did several series in the meantime, and he can't remove the fights.
He better do that for his next series though.
Wait a minute, isn't this effectively similar to Law? It even has the clapping gesture.
Visually it looks like Zeref's death wave, so it made me nervous for a sec there.
>Lucy pulled off Urano Metria for herself
I think this and the whole of her battle in Tartaros was better than anything Natsu has ever done. Lucy being shit at everything makes it infinitely better when Lucy stronk.
You mean this?
What a truly fucking cancerous manga.
How much do you want to bet he's defeated by some sort of physical blow that has him at the center of a swirling mass of something, probably fire in this case?
Also, I give this guy one, maybe two chapters before he's beaten. You know, like every other villain.
>I mean, we could still use her if she was just a head but it'd be best if we had her whole body to pass around
Good lord, Natsu is savage.
How do people actually read this shit? It's just like watching your step dad jerk his fat meaty uncut smegma coating chode in your moms face after he pounds her on your bed, he casually looks over grinning with a "yeah she got this in her twinklehole faggot cuck" look on his face.. you just whimper and cry.
Yeah.. I read it for the panels where mashima tries to draw a profile shot of a character but draws 80% skull with no nose. Or the generic overused female shot with the same body type.. Or the over the top fanservice which is poorly done and just annoying?
>Lucy has ten of the Golden Keys
>Lucy has Second Origin
>Lucy gained Star Dress during the timeskip and felt confident enough to spar with Natsu
>Lufy recently got a resolve boost from Aquarius
>Lucy just have to be saved from a throwing knife
Why do I ever get my hopes up that the character who could be the most tactically devastating with multi-summons might do something besides shake her naked tits around for half a chapter.
>who could be the most tactically devastating with multi-summons
Come on that manga has more ONE PUNCH action than OPM. Guy yell some shits and one shot their opponent because [any] slayer magic or because they're Erza.
This really surprised me when I started
Mavis is pretty fucking clever.
The beginning with the lying game thing had me kind of surprised
I knew she was up to something but that was pretty smart.
>No cool fight choreographies like Vegeta vs Recoom, Garou vs Metal Bat, etc...
>No cool tactic or strategy like in HxH...
>Shit paneling, no dynamism, no intensity nowhere
>Mediocre art style
WHY AREN'T YOU POSTING PLOT DAMMIT !
>Mashima plot production is stale
G A R B A G E
Smug Lucy is a miracle of the universe.
Goddamn, just imagine ghost loli's tactics + Lucy's versatility, Hitman here would get his shit kicked in.
>brother from another mother
there is nothing wrong with loving Gruvia and worshipping the best girl
No he's right. Mashima's probably the worst mainstream action artist right now. He's like the opposite of Isayama.
Mashima: Nice designs, but flat sterile action.
Isayama: Wonky designs, but good at action and suspense.
>Not saving Brandish as well so her and Lucy can be lewdly squished together around Natsu
I daresay Mashima is losing his touch.
Kubo stopped caring years ago. Mashima still care but honestly FT would be better if it was a slice of life manga instead of a battle shounen, Mashima sucks at drawing action or setting pace.
I don't really read FT anymore, but it was the first manga I read and back then the action felt fairly well done.
Think it was nostalgia goggles or has the action art grown a bit more stale as he moved towards his current drawing style? First 150 chapters or something had a slightly different, OP inspired style.
I liked the characters but in the older chapters the story was pretty bad.
Like, Its hardy a good story now but, The older chapters were just Natsu doing everything.
It got much better after Tower of Heaven but I remember some arcs straight up had me a little confused as to why exactly some villains were doing what they were doing other than
The majority of Tartaros battles were well done, with a couple of exceptions like Erza/Kyouka. They were playing with magical shit way beyond the level of the first chapters, but it was appropriate for the power levels and all of them were legitimately weighty for the characters in them.
Wendy/Ezel, Lucy/Tartaros and Gray/Silver were some of the best fights in the series in my opinion. Final fight with Mard Geer also flowed uncharacteristically well for a Fairy Tail final boss fight.
Agree with this. Story went to shit when Mashima had Jellal survive. Battle of Fairy Tail was decent IIRC though, but the alternate universe one sucked.
I especially dislike that they cut Mystogan from the story like that in favor of his more shit doppelganger, he had such a cool design and abilities.
I liked the alternate universe, felt pretty fresh and Mystogan was pretty cool despite being Jellal2
It got really bad after Tenrou, but until that point it was pretty decent and even good at times
>Final boss of Tower arc is Jellal
>Guy Oracion Six want to resurrect is also Jellal
Just wait, Ninehart will end up being Jellal4. The circle will close.
Bracing for big fat cat tats.
>Reminder Fairy Tail got away with getting outside interference from Mavis during this tournament but Sting's not suppose to take advantage over them being injured because plot demands it and MUH NAKAMA.
I strongly disagree. For all Mashima's faults, his art/paneling are great at conveying movement and impact. Contrast with Samurai Deeper Kyo, whose fights always felt oddly lacking in dynamism, despite having nice-looking art in other respects.
Kubo used to be really good at it, to the degree that he was my hands-down favorite artist during Soul Society. But then he started OVERusing the artsy camera work instead of saving it for climactic scenes, and just decompressing his pacing in general. Plus he regressed in facial distinctiveness. Now I don't know what to think of his art.
I thought we'd find out this week, but now it's been pushed back further by Natsu vs Jacob. Nervous.
Isn't it funny how most of the Fairy Tail character get away with things like
>Cana ditching Lucy to get to Mavis grave only leaving her for dead for Kain if she never woke up.
>Elfman planning to nuke the guild along with himself to try getting his sisters back.
Supposedly Mavis conveyed her plan the night before, hence it not being updatable when things fell apart.
As for Sting, he just realized that the setup was making him look like a heel instead of showing his strength.
>As for Sting, he just realized that the setup was making him look like a heel instead of showing his strength.
>Implying Fairy Tail still wouldn't use plot armor to win even if Sting went along with the set up.
Ironically Sting could have saved a bunch of people if he even defeated one of the teams with Future Rogue's prediction being based on his surrender
Yeah Mystogan was great imo. I think the main reason why I didn't like the alternate universe was the whole deal with the cats, Lisanna coming back along with the fact that Mystogan was basically cut out of the series.
P L O T
God, she is simply built for sex. Bless the should do porn man.
What if the loli is bullied by a loli?
I'm watching it
dubbedso I'm only on episode 5
But I'm really loving it, The OP is top tier and Mavis is so adorable.
I think they also come untanned, if you aren't into brown.
Dem crazy hips
Reading Fairy Tail its a torture.
You got a cool looking villain. A hype scene, and a good set up for something ineresting to happen.
But instead Jacob will get nakama tornado punched and thats all.
>Wendy will grown up to be a cum guzzling whore.
Plz stay cute and innocent forever Wendy ;_;
As expected. Can't have Lucy actually be useful and do something for once.
I personally like ONE's artstyle. Yeah it's shit but it's kinda comfy reading it. It's a bit like looking at those silly comics that your friend drew in high school and showed around being proud as fuck
She has to grow up to be 50 year old Mest's 20 year old wife at some point
Lucy was extra spicy this chapter.
Oh shit. I haven't even thought about that.
Guess Natsu was also doing his waifu-protection training during that year.
Am I the only one that wished Natsu kept his long hair? He rocks that dragon mane well.
It fucking hurts still
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
Trying to pull us out of the darkness anon?
In one of the anime original arcs they gave him a love interest that was literally legal Wendy
The Keys of the Starry Sky ones. They first meet in episode 143.
Urtear didn't finish casting Third Origin on Wendy, since Sherria convinced Urtear to do her instead. It ended up being a placebo for Wendy to buy time to unlock Sherria's Third Origin.
Well at the time he hadn't heard about Fairy Tail's return. So he thought his deception of Wendy was responsible for her being on Tenrou Island when it was blown up. Not the easiest thing to forget about.
Is being fused with Leo affecting her behavior?
Oh man Nalu Team Up 2.0. I loved Lucy/Natsu/Happy vs Kain. That shit was funny as hell. Guess we are about to get a better version of this now. I expect some heavy fucking after they are done.
I think she is acting more like the way she was at the beginning of the series. Before Mashima turned her into a goodie tooshoes. But whatever I welcome this new Lucy behavior. It only makes her sexier.
>Short shorts absolute territory
>Outward bulge of legs from the end of the thigh highs
Mashima might not be a master of storytelling, but god is he good at drawing girls. What a pic. I wish he drew porn.
>Fabric so tight you can make out her lips.
By that point you might as well wear body paint.
I know she has an amazing rack but I'd love to see more art of Lucy from behind.
It's a bra and gold belt with flaps. The green between the bra and the belt is paint. The white is a super-thin material similar to gymnast leotards or volleyball shorts.
Or it's magic and she ain't gotta explain shit
Ummm could you all stop talking about the girls and just maybe talk about the plot and action instead?
We can talk about the plot and action, yes. We simply aren't choosing to do so at the moment. There isn't too much to discuss this chapter that hasn't already been gone over. If you wish more discussion, perhaps you should start it?
Maybe. They might simply adapt up to chapter 419 and then stop. We haven't gotten any news confirming the series continuing into April yet, and adapting 418 and 419 could easily fill the two episodes they have left before then.
No, both of those are fucking shit.
Yes and he got it 3 minutes ago from his dead father who learnt it after he has been resurrected by a demonic necromancer who came out of a book wrote by an immortal depressed dark mage from an hundred years ago, the necromancer was probably sleeping in some inn in Gray's Town when the Deliora smashed everything to shred and killed Gray parents, he then saw the dead body of Gray father among all the other corpse and though he needed a new pet and this one looked good (fucking homo), how convenient, also mind you his father passed him the magic just like that, yes that's right: "You can have it for free, son, Mashima said it was OK to give you some power-up right now" and then he evaporated because Gray love interest killed the evil sand necromancer and broke the spell that kept his father alive. For some obscure reason (mostly because Mashima though it could be cool) Gray father also master ice magic.
What an incredible story lads !
The part I never understood was why Silver learned ice devil slayer magic. He knew E.N.D was a fire demon and learned ice magic instead of water magic which makes no sense since fire > ice.
Yeah I have to wonder about what Mavis can do as a ghost. She used fairy sphere but had to use the strength of people's bonds. I thought that was BS (it is) but I guess that was also foreshadowing how she can't tap into her own personal Magic powers.
So in this form her best ability is instantly teaching people how to use the 3 magics?
Also she can't be killed. The magical coma will last forever but Ahnk won't let her die.
That still doesn't make any sense considering he could have just learned water magic from the beginning. Not to mention he can't do anything with the melted ice anymore.
I don't really understand why Mashima thinks so. And that confuses me greatly.
Implying that wasn't the plan
Mashima was a hack and always will be .
>inb4 hurr durr shounen shit
>also the past chapter it so, lots of strong character was jobbed due mashima is a jobmaster on par with kubo or any shounen manga
>says wrong pic
>posts a loli instead
>not even the good loli
Shit taste senpai.
Best girl forever and ever.
I agree, Juvia is best girl
What the fuck is wrong with you Gray?
Flaming homosexuality, anon. That's what's wrong with him. They lived together for six months, in a cabin with one bed, and he didn't falter FUCKING ONCE. He's gay, that's the only possible answer at this point.
After Tartaros, when FT broke up and Natsu went off to train, Lucy became a model, and so on. For six months Gray and Juvia lived together and trained etc.
Then he left without a word of goodbye, and she got near-death from sickness and sadness waiting for him until Lucy and Natsu got there just in time to help her.
She's spoken for.
Oh. The filler episode of the party after the dragons were defeated, and everybody was wearing fancy dress.
>plot and the characters
Does anyone even know what this story is about after the tartaros arc ended?
Gray is stupid.
Best girl is in love with him and he doesn't even care.
He has to be homo.
Yeah, it's from the latest volume.
The story is pure nonsense, this so called "war" comes from absolutely nowhere. I don't even understand what the Sprigann 12 are fighting for, they all seem like soulless puppets to me.
At this point Natsu has put his face in every single part of Lucys body, same for Lucy in Natsus, don't know why the fuss
>Natsu stealing the spotlight from
Is as if you never read this manga at all, there is been any moment where Natsu didn't steal the spotlight? Man I even remember during the tournament arc an entire stadium full of mages, 10 saints, Sclass mages, the first and the third at bare 1 meter of the little girl and the only one that realized Lucy was being blackmailed was Natsu
Erza versus the 100 creatures, and all that final day when he was off doing whatever in the dungeons.
I went easy on the original run, but the filler was really awful. After putting it off for a while, I watched up to the beginning of Tartaros, there were only TWO episodes that were any good since it started up again in 2014, and they were the ones based on the Asuka and Juvia omake.
I was expressing anger at a typical recurring event, Had I started reading Fairy Tail on this chapter I would be willing to overlook it since it happened just the once from my experience.
Yeah, it's just a shame that she keeps that little hairknot thing in everything.
This. Zeref had no intention of winning that fight, he wanted Natsu to kill him.
>Zeref could have hit this
>some cockblocking god wouldn't let him
FT gods are assholes.
And Zeref is basically /a/, raging because somebody stole his waifu from him.
She goes on the very difficult quests, and spends a lot of the money she receives on buying new armour. Other stuff she finds or has given to her. Most of it she keeps stored somewhere (I think she rents out several apartments on the top floor of something and just stashes it all in there), but she always has a selection of different ones "with" her.
>be fedora high school student
>want to resurrect your dead little brother
>teachers say 'das blapshemy'
>get a little too close to figuring it out
>become immortal black wizard, kill everyone, resurrect little brother anyway because fuck god
>teach loli magic
>loli uses magic and becomes immortal like you
>fall in love with loli, hahaha, thanks god, now i have an immortal loli waifu, in this moment i am euphoric
>god kills loli
>start a fucking world war to get her back
Zeref is iterally /a/ incarnate.
I pretty much read it becuase I like the characters, If they arn't doing it for you it's probably just not your cup of tea.
I can't really remember when it gets better but the the beginning I found to be really boring.
There was a fight scene a few episodes ago, It was literally just a slideshow.
That's enough health for me to lose myself in for a solid three days of fucking.
Gave me a whole new appreciation for Mavis.
Pic very related, I'd want to start a fucking war too if I could have hit that and got cockblocked by a god.
I've seen examples of bits that are well animated, but for the most part it looks like shit. There have been several times when they have a still for several seconds looking ugly as sin. I haven't kept up with the anime, though. It's a lot more boring since the studio change imo.
I get the feeling that the animation has been on a downhill slide ever since the studio change. Still shots are technically more manga-like, but the movement is terrible, like all the money has been thrown into other projects and FT is getting something along the lines of what Toei does to One Piece.
I mean, compare the most recent fights in the anime with the Hades fight, or big chunks of the GMG arc (e.g. Four Dragonslayers, Erza vs 100, fuck, even the Jura vs Jellal fight was well done, and it was a prime example of something they could have used to save on budget). The quality difference seems very noticeable.
Just imagine the amount of fucking they would do once they become the Emperor and Empress of Alvarez.
Also posting my favorite Fairy! Man I just can't get enough of Lady Brandish.
Mashima knows damned well why we love Wendy. Pic very related.
