At the cost of being rendered worthless and forgotten, yeah. Demoted from being a serious rival to being so enormously behind on power curve he can't even hope to compete anymore.
Gray is equal to END since tartarus so it doesn't matter. It kept him being a better character than natsu and erza who get the power of friendship 24/7
This chapter was so shitty. Just look at mavis. Literally worse than sasusaku
Wait so this is the end? Just like that? Without even a final epic fight?
Where the hell is the long awaited demonic Natsu form? Not making Natsu giving in to rage and becoming evil and turning into a demon even for just one chapter is the biggest letdown for me, it's even worse than all that "powahs of friendship and nobody dies" bullshit
>makarov didn't die lol
>natsu just friendship punches Zeref to win
>nah I'll just reincarnate
>no you won't because of love and shit or something
I don't know what's worse, this """""plot""""" or the fact that we're surprised when shit like this happens.
>isn't even allowed to fight zeref
Hey I am not mashima who is haxx
>grey was equal to END when being hurt from previous battles and not even using his full demon slayer power up
This should say enough about them being equals. The thing is the manga is mostly about Natsu followed up by grey erza and Lucy so it isn't surprising he writes those 3 off just for natsu's sake to have some cool fights
Love killing him makes sense because of the curse of contradiction. There's enough bad stuff in this manga as it is. I can atleast give it to them when they do something right.
>8 chapters of one big orgy
what would be your reaction /a/
Why did it not work the first time around then? Surely a good fucking is enough love for you to die.
Because they're both immortals it somehow nullifies their immortality? That's pretty convenient.
>tfw your parents get to live happily ever after in magic heaven while you remain dead and forgotten by literally everyone
>people will complain about this chapter
It's easily the best since this war began. No fighting, no power levels, just Mavis using what anons have predicted since Zero to kill zeref, and now the edgelord X Loli otp gets to be immortalized through memes. It truly is a great chapter.
Chelia is a normalfag now, Erza killed her mom, Mavis just died, pretty sure the 1-4 wizards are dead. There's consequences, an amount you'd expect in fairy tail. Limit your expectations and thereby limit your disappointment
Mavis was already dead. Erza's mom was a villain who sudoko'd the last second for no reason. 1-4 literal who's? The day I limit my expectation is the day I let Fairy Tail win.
The reveal chapter that shows August was their son and not that other faggot with the orgasm magic was actually one of the most well done things in this manga.
that scene was the last and only resemblance of anything simmilar to quality in this entire arc
this girl deserved more
i would finally think fairy tail was worth it
>Makarov is alive
im glad i stopped reading this shit after tarturus cause good lord this is a painful cycle of
>HURR DURR I MUST DIE
>U CANT ITS FAIRY TAIL
>SHIT U RITE NIGGA
>ERZA METEOR IMPACT
>MY FLAMES CAN BURN THE SUN ITSELF
>grey was equal to END
You keep saying this but nothing in the series shows any such thing. Natsu was just as fucked up as Gray was and still got to step up to Zeref, while Gray wasn't allowed to. Nothing suggests whatsoever that Gray is on Natsu's level, because he's never allowed to be. There's been nothing Gray has done that Natsu hasn't done better or more of, nor has there been any trial Gray's faced that Natsu couldn't.
Can we get a >be me for him from someone more talented?
>no emotional build up for Zeref's and Mavis' death
>Acnologia, the destroyer of everything, had a meme death with no tension whatsoever threatening the world
>The fight between Natsu and Zeref barely had any drama
>Natsu is now more powerful than a powered-up-by-time Zeref
>Powered-up-by-time Zeref was probably THE strongest foe in the entire Fairy Tail world
>Natsu is now the most powerful mage in the world?
And to imagine that this used to be a light hearted adventure manga with a story.
>token joke ugly character is literally the only person to die
>He was voiced by Aizen
Acnologia was all part of his keikaku
At what point did he lose his hype and credibility?
Everything is forgiven and fairy tail officially goes down as on of the greatest manga in all of history.
How does this make you feel, /a/? For me it's like seeing my beloved but retarded child finally being put down
I mean, he was never the greatest character to begin with, just a fucking dragon that sought destruction, but the reveal of his ow the edge human form didn't help. Neither did him fucking around the battlefield killing people "nothing personnel" style.
Fun fact: The majority of Fairy Tails fans have always been female. People focus on the tits and ass of the females a lot but the boys are all chiseled dreamboats as well, and there's more shipping fuel than an oil tanker.
>Gray is given a power up by his own father
>is hardly ever used since he got it
>is barely seen in chapters overall because Mashima cares more about showing off his overpowered dragon retard
>and there's more shipping fuel than an oil tanker.
See I always figured the shipping culture thrives on large numbers of ambiguous but potential pairings propping up a few main pairing fandoms. The thing about Fairy Tail is that fucking everybody has a designated love interest, so there's no real room for people to go "BUT WHAT IF NATSU LOVED ERZA"
>The thing about Fairy Tail is that fucking everybody has a designated love interest, so there's no real room for people to go "BUT WHAT IF NATSU LOVED ERZA"
You don't know the mental gymnastics that go through shippers' minds, I can assure you that there is a fandom Natsu-Erza.
Since the beginning after the first implication of him when he took of sad dad's arm.
I've gone back and reread the series twice over the years and he's basically done nothing at all in the course of the series.
He's always been "that guy is fucked we better stay away from him/one day we gotta beat him I guess".
Every flashback chapter with him and the dragons was them going "boy that guy sure was a dick" and you get one panel of the spooky black dragon then the rest of the chapter is dedicated to something almost unrelated like Natsu being a fag as a baby.
Every time he's shown up in person throughout the series it's been to go "FUCK YOU I'M A DRAGON" and then fly off. He doesn't destroy shit and doesn't kill or maim anyone important really. The most danger we ever got from him was the implication of him in an alternate timeline that doesn't matter because at the end of the day you can go "if left unchecked he kills everyone" which you could say for any single character or plot device or whatever.
The most intimidating he ever was was chomping dad arm. It's not like he's even flying around destroying random countries in the background and there was never a time when the main cast tried to fight him and then proceeded to lose hard. He's always just sort of around doing his own thing in the background and at no point has he ever been the main threat of an arc.
Even now when half of Zeref's army's goal was to destroy the fucker he was certainly in no way the main star. or threat it was still Zeref.
His one claim to fame is btfoing all the dragons and that's impressive I guess but A) we never truly get a scale of how bad he wrecked them and B) when all the dragons show up constantly as life coaches for the slayers the impact of "wow this guy sort of killed them all" does not matter at all.
In terms of story?
Honestly hard to say which was worse.
In terms of semen demons?
Honestly hard to say which is better.
Bleach had potential which it squandered. Fairy Tail has been a smooth ride of mediocrity the whole way through. Depends whether you think it's worse to try and fail or not try at all.
Obviously it's incestfags. They're basically blood related siblings. Natsu and Gray didn't even get phased when they were bathing with her that one time because they were used to it, she used to scrub their backs all the time. Then she beat the shit out of them for getting too rowdy while doing NAKAMA POWER speech or something.
They're both bloody messes but at the very least Bleach has style and does "cool shit" pretty well. Literally any bankai is more dope than anything in Fairy Tail. Kubo can't write but he can certainly draw and come up with stylish stuff. Mashima can't really draw anything remarkable except tits and asses.
>His one claim to fame is btfoing all the dragons and that's impressive I guess but A) we never truly get a scale of how bad he wrecked them
Only time we even half-do is in the latest movie, but it's just a few splashes of blood and sudden scene cuts to dead dragons all over that under-coliseum cave.
My melanin enriched brethren
Dimaria x Brandish is second best
>not Wendy x Chelia
Lucy fantasises about two things: raped by women, and fucked by Natsu.
Bleach had its own unique style, unique power-system and distinct character designs.
Fairy Tail was the definition of generic shonen, with the most generic power system possible and characters who could as well be put in any other shonen like One Piece, with no distinctive style at all.
How does Mashima do it?
It had better be about pairing them all off. Pic related.
It better be 1 chapter of recollecting after the fight, and the rest about pairing characters and just straight up sex.
If this happens then Fairy Tail will have been worth it.
So this has pretty much cemented Fairy Tail as the worst manga in history of mankind hasn't it? I mean it was always bad but to asspull grandpa back into life for the sixth or seventh time 537 chapters is just sickening to watch
>Killed every dragon
>Mfw looking for sub-far undragonified dragonslayers some fuckwits try to stop me
>About to rape some Loli when a giant spaceship comes
>Chase them for like 2 hours
>Some flying douchebag throws rocks at me
>Try to crush that fucker
>Fucking spaceship crashes into me
>Mfw fall into some bullshit cosmic time hole
>Disperse across time and space
Not just any loli. This loli.
Truly Zeref was an /a/non.
fairy tail threads are like people complaining about the porn having no plot instead of the porn having no porn
You know I was about to write fairy tail off as mediocre but still better than hitman. Until this motherfucker came back to life. I honestly don't think this can get worse now
One can be a loli yet have hips, anon.
Pick 5 FT girls to form your harem.
>Mirajane (and id have her transform into Seilah)
>zeref stuck his dick in this
Erza only has strange, tingly feelings for edgy childhood friends.
You don't exactly see me with my dick out for each new chapter. I'd fap once in a while to a specific art but the reality is behind all the T&A there are actual story, plot, background and characters going on. You don't see anyone praising porn for anything over than sex but FT does have a well established fanbase that praises inherent elements to a work of fiction. Hell just ask Mashima himself, I'm not sure he wants his series to be regarded as nothing else than fapbait.
>ok plot that climaxed early tenrou island but went to shit due to asspulls and makarov not dying
Fairy Tail is a fucking trainwreck but it showed so much promise in the early days. It's a fucking shame how it absolutely went down the toilet. At least the girls are still 10/10 fap material, it's the only thing Mashima can't take away from us with his shit writing
>many years from now Mashima is on his deathbed
>a small crowd comes to see him off
>one old fan comes forth to ask him if he ever drew any porn of fairy tail girls, and if he will release it now since his life is ending
>"You want my smut? Well, you'll just have to find it! I left everything I drew in one place."
Thus began the great pervert era
>Splash and Smile
don't mind if I do
Uh, anons, I was actually dissing Fairy Tail here, by saying that because the intent behind it is more than fapbait and because certain people like it for more than that, it's legimitate to express negative criticism over it as well, rather than just being in it for the semen demons, which is perfectly reasonable, too, but then you'd probably be better off sticking with strictly fapbaits artwork.
>jump-starting the colonization of mars was his plan all along
Meredy is the key to it all. Remember, she has the ability to link peoples senses. We'll all be able to share all of each others senses. While fucking 1 I can make them all feel it and can effectively fuck all 5 of them at once. And when I make them all cum at once, they're all feel their own orgasms as well as the other 4s, plus mine. And I'll be able to feel all of their orgasms as well.
It'll be a bliss unlike anything anyone has ever known.
Fairy tail is the worst by fucking far. Every major-selling shounen has at least one or two arcs that are still remembered to this day despite going to shit later on whereas FT has none; Bleach also still has memorable fights, characters, and certain scenes. Name one fight in FT that at least matches up to Byakuya vs Ichigo.
People are just reading FT for the waifus and pairings.
The worst offense was Natsu versus that God Slayer
>"oh hey you can't eat my flames"
>shit he'll have to get creative now and think of some way to beat hi-
>"if I empty my stomach I can"
The entire arc was a huge letdown but still the most memorable one in all of FT imo.
>Acnologia, the destroyer of everything, had a meme death with no tension whatsoever threatening the world
There are a few chapters left. Acnologia is totally coming back. His actual defeat won't be any more satisfying, though.
Main girl, closest thing to an actual relationship. Mainly for pationate love making
Would probably get a similar amount of attention as Levy
sweet loli fun but with that build it wouldn't feel like straight up pedophelia like with Wendy for example
but hell I sure don't judge you if you take Wendy
I could explore her body on a whole other level and in many fucked up ways with her powers
For the hate fucks. Also I'd love to pull down those MC-hammer pants
Tenrou island could have been a legit good arc. Let Makarov fucking die against Hades, don't let the seven kin of purgatory job as hard as they have, let Laxus beat Hades and it could have been pretty nice.
Bleach is the worse of the two in pretty much every aspect except maybe actual hype fights early on. Bleach was really good at that back in the days.
It's funny how I'm holding Naruto in a fairly high regard compared to Fairy Tail and Bleach. I still like Fairy Tail, but Bleach is just a pile of horseshit.
>promises to end fairy tail
>after it ends he asspulls the series itself back to life and continues on unchanged for another 10 years
Well Fairy Tail has the better girls but that's about it. The end of Bleach was a fucking trainwreck and it left pretty much 50% of the whole story unexplained but it had at least a few cool fights in the Rukia and Orihime rescue arcs. Fairy Tail really has just tits going for it, nothing more
>mfw my folder keeps increasing
Reminds me why FT threads are still a thing.
>implying you wouldn't hit this any time of the day
This. Whilst Bleach went to utter shit towards the end. It had its cool moments and was pretty decent for the first 200 chapters. Fairy Tail on the other hand has never been decent. It was generic from day one and the only thing it had going for it was its fanservice.
>Well Fairy Tail has the better girls but that's about it
Not really. Fairy Tail women mostly have the same body type aside from Levy and Wendy.
Bleach has more variety:
You like titties? Matsumoto and Orihime
You like tall and flat chested? Soifon
You like petite? Rukia
You like dark skin? Yoruichi and Harribel
You like traps? Giselle
Only thing Mashima does better is lolis.
Him destroying that Spriggan that was supposed to be the best ice mage in the world in a matter of seconds was one of the biggest bullshits of the arc along with Erza and Natsu's final punch.
>TFW Mashima said in an afterword that he would never bring a character back to life.
>Just brought Makarov back.
>Mashima: He never died and if you thought that he had died then its your own fault.
I guess Mashima didn't bother re-reading the script of this chapter when he wrote it in 5 minutes.
Something's different and my body can tell but not my mind.
>Igneel's fire couldn't beat Zeref
>dragon force couldn't beat Zeref
>Natsu's knocks him out cause muh emotions
Is a shonen getting a 5+ chapters epilogue a thing? I'm all for it at this point but somehow I think we're not done with the bullshit. He'll find a way to bring Acnojobia back.
Yeah her all the bones seem to have disappeared from her arm.
When I started thinking abut it I remembered how SS arc in Bleach got 4 chapters for epilogue/wrap up, but two times as long arrancar arc and then the last arc only got two each. I still don't know what Kubo was thinking.
It was still pretty fucking underwhelming in its execution though. He had hyped Natsu after his year of training and have him do shit like this and then his ultimate technique knocks tables off the ground. Real fucking impressive.
Main guy tragically dies, but returns in the epilogue for no fucking reason at all. Exactly what Mashima's been doing for the entirety of FT, basically. Cue the happy tears and wedding shots.
>spend eternity with her
Sounds very happy to me.
Reminder that they got away with this in the anime.
Fairy tail. At least early bleach had some style and a somewhat interesting and adequately executed premise, but Fairy Fail has been nothing but poorly defined magic and dudefriendshiplmao since day one.
Fairy Tail. Its greatest crime is how utterly, mind-numbingly predictable it is.
Bleach may have been a complete clusterfuck of half-realized ideas and dropped plotlines, but it was also good at throwing the odd curveball. Like having Aizen being the big hero who saved the day in the end. Or having Ichigo's final power-up amount to precisely nothing.
It's method of storytelling is terrible. I've never seen a series that more readily shits on prior arcs than Fairy Tail.
Think for a moment about how much of a waste Jellal is. He was was enslaved by a cult and mind fucked by a dead wizard except for the fact that the wizard was never dead and he was mindfucked by some other bitch character for no rational reason beyond reviving the dead wizard that isn't dead?
Or how about the Edolas arch that basically played out like walking through a sandstorm of glass shards in how everything was just one massive misunderstanding stitched together by ass pulls with nothing to come out of it other than a character we didn't really care about not being dead and a pointless explanation for talking cats.
Both of those things are because of bad writing though. If Fairy Tail is either lazy or "safe" writing, then Bleach is schizophrenic nonsense being passed off as planned.
One thing remained predicable in Bleach though. Even all the way up to the last chapter nothing ever happened.
>Bleach is schizophrenic nonsense being passed off as planned.
Maybe so, but at least the idea that the vaguely interconnected shit /might/ have been planned is more entertaining than anything Fairy Tail ever did.
>One thing remained predicable in Bleach though. Even all the way up to the last chapter nothing ever happened.
Well, you're not wrong. Tutor Hitman Reborn is still the worst in that regard though.
>Maybe so, but at least the idea that the vaguely interconnected shit /might/ have been planned is more entertaining than anything Fairy Tail ever did.
I guess. I'd attribute that to the theories that flew around being far more entertaining than anything that actually came out of Bleach personally. In my eyes the two are very similar, Fairy Tail and Bleach both had good starts and failed to use the momentum from them. I probably dislike Bleach slightly more because it was so similar to Yu Yu Hakusho to begin with and just made me really mad every week after a point, probably because of the lost potential. I only kept reading out of a weird sense of obligation. Having said all that though I am, admittedly, still bitter from sitting through the town war arc weekly.
>Well, you're not wrong. Tutor Hitman Reborn is still the worst in that regard though.
Yeah well, that was a real turd of a series with a bit of a troubled start. The only other thing Reborn's author has done that I know of is the character design for Psycho-Pass.
At least he actually killed off Zeref and Mavis?
And Acnologia rather than redeeming him. And Lucy's great-great-granny... whom everyone assumed was long dead anyway and we only learned otherwise like two weeks ago so who cares.
Bleach had higher highs, and even the lows weren't as low as Fairy Tail's. Sure, Bleach had some pretty shitty moments, but Erza's antics alone can at least give them a run for their money in terms of shittiness.
Erza outside of the asspulls, Gajeel otherwise I guess
GMG for entertainment reasons
the Fairy Tail fodder members pretending they're useful, including Makarov
too many to count
Zeref fucked her so hard they triggered the curse, anon. Deal with it.
Were you upset because of the establishing of a love interest for a previously unattached character, or because it suddenly made a villain built-up to that point as the supreme evil in the world morally redeemable?
None. Erza is the hottest but she's trash in every other aspect.
Phantom or Tower.
Natsu vs Gajeel.
All of them.
This garbage war.
Too many to count.
if you think about it,
he got the SUCC
Mavis, now Ultear
Sun Village BY FAR
Can't remember any
Any of the villains
Anything that's not Sun Village
I have always loved FT in a special way, despite the story obviously being bad. I really do love the characters, even though they are also written bad sometimes (or always: Erza). I thought the only thing that could ruin it in the end for me was too much or out-of-place shipping, which I knew may very well happen.
This thing with Zeref and Mavis, it just feels off. I just wish she could have ended him, and as he died said something like "I really used to love you" or something. I would have been fine with that. After all he's done, fuck this is practically Sasushit and Sakura all over again.
Lastly, Natsu doesn't have a romantic bone in his body. Could you see Luffy in a relationship? Fucking hell no. But, I know Mashima's gonna force this because at the end of the day the shipping seems to be the main purpose of this series. With "love being magic" and all.
Damn, Mavis looks like THAT?
I at least give FT props for never changing. It's always been the same thing, never got better or worse (if that's possible) than it already was. Wasn't a giant cocktease like Naruto or Bleach were.
Know that feel all too well. Thing is, I usually end up liking characters from big shounen a lot. Even though things like Naruto, HxH, etc. fucked me in the ass, and FT isn't going easy on me either, the fact that Bleach is the only one I haven't experienced is nagging on me. Though for Naruto and HxH, they got so bad where I didn't give a shit about any of the characters, and the characters I did love in Naruto all died.
It's gotta be extremely unhealthy for me to keep doing this. These type of series always screw me over. One Piece has slightly declined but as now stands as the only long series that hasn't to date. And the enjoyment is nearly outweighed by the fear that it will fall apart.
>not getting into bleach for the keikaku master
Well if you managed to go though with Naruto and HxH and want to complete the list with Bleach then at the very least, read the first 200 or so chapters or watch the anime up to episode 64. That way in memory they will remain as decent characters.
She was in a crystal for the majority of the series. The curse doesn't work when she's in ghost form. She killed Zeref because she was back in her physical body.
Also, I'd just like to remind everyone that she is technically naked. The clothes are an illusion she made.
Elaborating on this, should I purge the remaining shounen from my backlog? Just Ansatsu Kyoushitsu. Hero Academia possibly. And was Yamada-kun as bad as FT, knowing Yoshikawa Miki was Mashima's assistant and all. Don't want to do anymore of this nonsense. Gonna stick to my 4koma series.
Probably 7 years or so. And that's 7 years of uncertainty and teeth grinding. Well, at least we don't to worry about retarded shipping. I think One Piece might actually be the outlier and be the only one worth a damn.
Nobody honestly. Ill pick August because he was cool.
Festival i guess, i was hyped
Everyone vs Hades
Gray Edge Arc
Zeref vs Natsu
I dropped it after the Tower of Heaven (or what was it called), but I'll still respond:
Grey vs. Juvia
Tower of Heaven
Gajeel/Natsu or basically any TH fight which isn't Natsu vs two Erza's friends.
I don't even know what to say anymore. I can't even try to pretend that I was surprised by anything at all this chapter simply because we've been given this kind of shit forever now so to expect anything else, even in the final moments of this shit would be delusional.
Where's that reaction pic of Dewey from Malcolm in the Middle where he's like "I had no expectations and I was still let down" because that's essentially where I'm at right now.
I wonder how the manga will end compared to Naruto and Bleach. The latter was really really bad.
8 more chapters should be enough to wrap things up. Wonder if there will be a time skip where everyone has married and had children with each other.
>acnologia comes back
>every fairy tail uses Courage Punch, amplified by all their Nakama Force, to beat him for good
>Love was the one piece all along
>Mashima will have written the ULTIMATE shounen finale
>the series ends in a cliffhanger, where Natsu is absorbed into something
>the last line in the whole series is
>"Look forward to the final chapter in ONE PIECE: FAIRY TAIL WORLD"
>Oda said that's One Piece's final arc, should be starting in 4-5 years
There was literally nothing good about it after SS arc
FT has at least good fanservice and humour but Bleach? Bleach has fucking nothing. It loses in Story, characters, humour, artstyle and fanservice.
They are all so forgettable, I can't say
Can't remember anything good
99,9% of the cast
They are all so forgettable, I can't say
All of them
I wish there was some way they can just start over all again.
Mavis and Zeref could be papa and mama, August could be their son.
NaLu can be their annoying in-laws.
They will love each other and it will be awesome.
Mavis x Zeref was the only well written ship of this series, no joke
Bleach shouldn't even be discussed anywhere near Fairy Tail.
Naruto sure, but every other shonen needs to be left out because they're both in a league of their own shittiness.
I got kinda emotional there, I'm really going to miss Fairy Tail. Now that it's ending I never knew just how much I really liked it ;_;I have so many fond memories
