Is this the holy grail of asspulls? Does any other asspull can top this in level of bullshitness?
I liked it.
I swear I'm the only one who defends it, I thought it was awesome after they spend the entire fight pulling out all the stops and they clearly can't do shit then the final reveal with maka's birth.
Manga's better, but that doesn't mean the anime wasn't good in my mind.
>Laxus pulling out an armageddon magic to kill everyone, it doesn't work because he didn't want to kill anyone
>Sting pulling out a "plan" to beat the FT alone, the plan succeeds and he could beat them all alone, so he kneels on the ground crying and surrenders
To be fair, his entire character is a semi-joke of being a complete monstrous powerhouse with a fuckton of will to keep going even when no longer existing.
Mashima doesn't even seek logic. Cannot be compared.
The worst part of it is that Erza having an artificial eye was already very well established at this point, and would've at least been a slightly reasonable explanation as to why she was able to pull this dumb shit off, but I guess Mashima just completely stopped caring.
