They actually killed the retard off and there's only one chapter left, so don't expect him to come back.
Next chapter is 48 pages SoL.
Is Acnologia the worst final boss in battle shounen history?
>But I think most readers had no expectations at this point compared to other series.
This is an excelent point, outside of /a/ ter were plenty of people excited for Naruto to the very last page.
I doubt there is a single soul that gives a fuck about Fairy Tail.

Is there any Shounen series that has lasted more than 250 chapters thats worse than Fairy Tail?
I mean honestly. I have been absolutely astounded how each and every arc gets progressively worse, how each fight couldn't possibly get any worse, but yet it does. Mashima keeps reaching new lows I never thought possible. How does he do it?
If Mashima didn't remember us in the first page that this shit was about to end, I wouldn't have thought this would be the final arc. It didn't feel like such. It felt like any other FT arc, with a bunch of unknown but supposedly powerful guys appearing only to be defeated by the power of friendship, and the big bad guy being destroyed by Natsu after consuming some sort of special magic.Mashima seriously can't create a good story to save his life. The arcs always started so good, but at the middle is like he didn't know what the fuck to do next and then procceded to do a clusterfuck. And my god, that Natsu vs Zeref fight was so underwhelming. It was some generic bar fight.
This series started so good, but ended being such a dissapointment. The only good thing about this series is the amount of beautiful and humungous tits and asses that appear every chapter.
Ironically, I started reading this 10 years ago because I thought it was created by Oda. Oh poor innocent me, thinking that Oda would have enough time to make 2 series at the same time.
>Ironically, I started reading this 10 years ago because I thought it was created by Oda.
WHAT!?!!!?! The final boss was one-shotted by a punch? I'm like totally shocked, I honestly thought he was going to get done in by the super-nakama friendship speech ray. I totally believed is was going to be even more predictable than this.
You mean as in everyone gets together with their ship has kids, and leads a new insufferable generation of fairy tail that hiro mashima will eventually serialized and demand that his fans to read?
Wait, so, Acnologia can't be defeated by magic, just like Madara and the rabbit bitch couldn't be defeated by chakra and only by taijutsu.
That means that Luffy or Zoro could solo the final bosses of those series
Eh, as far as Falcon Punch endings go, this one is only meh tier.
True shit tier Falcon Punch endings are shit like the Soul Eater anime ending.
At least here, there was multiple actually decent reasons that Acnologia couldn't fight the punch and why it was so good against him.
Honestly, it's still trash but I do love that he tried to block with his missing arm only to remember "Oh shit, right, Igneel took that. Fuck maybe I shoulda used my crazy magic power to restore my god damn arm at some point"
Naruto was supposed to be about ninjas, yet everyone turned out to be wizards by the end.
Fairly Tall was supposed to be about wizards, yet every boss is taken down with punches.
When can I expect Ippo to start killing his opponents with ninja skills? It nneds to happen to close the circle.
Maybe but it's because Mashima can't write shit so I would rather blame him than Acnologia. Fucking guy just has to make FT win everything even though he stated that Spriggshits >>> Fairytale
>Only Lucy survives, with Natsu's son in her womb.
>Fairy Tail: Next Generation, in a wasteland ruled by Acnologia, Natsu and Lucy's son joins the hopless underground rebellion....
>I'm the last mage of Fairy Tail and the last Dragon Slayer!
>The spirit of the whole guild, my father, my mother, aunt Mavis and uncle Zeref are in my fist!
>I cast 'Fist of Wild Nakama Family Fire Ice Water Lightning Ecchi Wind Nakama Shadow Light Fanservice Poison Magic of the ultimate power called Love!'
>I cast 'Fist of Wild Nakama Family Fire Ice Water Lightning Ecchi Wind Nakama Shadow Light Fanservice Poison Magic of the ultimate power called Love!'
Did you forget the last chapter? That'd be too much work, just turn it all into fire.
I dropped this shit when it was revealed that the dragons were living inside of them all along has anything worthwhile happened since then?
>just turn it all into fire.
That was the final straw. I knew it will be bullshit, but at least, I expected all of the going super saiyan and usin their powers at the same time, with delicious artwork, at least half a page per DS, showing off all the elements. And then that faggot Natsu comes and turns eveythig into fire, and the others just sit there.
>Haha I am completely immune to magic you puny magic user can never defeat me.
>I magic harder!
>Gah I am beaten.
I have to convince myself he does this on purpose. He only cares about drawing the fan service and makes the story as intentionally bad as possible for shits and giggles. That's the only way I can remain sane, because accepting the possibility that this might genuinely be the best someone can do, that he might actually write this and think "wow this is so good, I did a great job telling this story and making it really cool and dramatic" would make my brain die.
Every time a big shonen manga ends I come to /a/. It's becoming a tradition of sorts for me. I'm always curious who will be happy about the ending, who "wins", and who is angry and why.
FT seems like it's left pretty much no one happy for pretty much any reason, which is kind of sad. Well I guess the Natsu Lucy shippers are happy but I don't follow this series so I don't know the significance of that.
They went to war with a neighboring nation because Zeref is that nation's king. Erza's biological mother is a 400-year old dragon who gestated Erza for all that time with the plan to demonically possess her once she was born, but gave up. Erza cut a meteor and her mom killed herself. Gray and Juvia tried to kill themselves, then Gray got pissed after he failed and tried to kill Natsu. Also, Juvia survived too. Makarov used a spell that explicitly kills the caster and survived. Zeref and his waifu fucked each other to death. Among other things.
And we never got to see which other Dragon Slayer elements God Serena had.
Also, whatever happened to other three Gods of Ishval after being defeated by Serena? They were pretty underwhelming, even after that old hag from the Magic Game bragged about their power.
>Natsu is guild master
>Lucy is houswife
>GM is now about paperwork, requiring 100% of Natsu's attention
>Their son hates Natsu
>Natsu won' be home for the their daughter's birthday
>Also dragon marks on the kids
>Grey and Juvia's daughter has her own gaiden
>Grey didn't see his family for over ten years
You left out that Erza did the meteor cutting with every one of her bones broken, then cutting down a dragon in one strike, but she is Erza so it's okay. Also Ichiya was the single most fearsome opponent of Acno before Natsu. And there was Anna, Lucy's great grandma or something, but she was there because, well, she was there too.
Squad 0, on account of how fucking pointless they are. If the bad guys who fought them were all going to power up and end up winning anyway they might as well have fought relevant, recognizable characters instead of a bunch of jobbers.
It's not really any different than the Wizard Saints. The problem here is that Mashima didn't even make it good looking in the process. Kubo spamming ink for dramatic effect was better than a short chapter and then immediate jobbing.
It's not as great as you think. He was driving an airship into Acno, pushing them both into a literal plot hole in a suicide attack. Everyone involved survived and it basically did nothing and turned out to be basically filler.
>And there was Anna, Lucy's great grandma or something, but she was there because, well, she was there too.
Goddamn yes I forgot about this pointless woman. Why is she here again?
I wonder if his next series will be about that oneshot he did a year or so ago. Hopefully, because it had a female MC. Upon further inspection, female MCs could save Mashima's works because it will be nothing but fanservice.
>reminder that according to 2 dudes from Chapter 1, typical mages are physically weak
>reminder that pre-useless-timeskip Raven Tail was so stronk that it could be independent of the Dark Guild alliance and they obviously got only stronker after the deep and meaningful timeskip
>remember how Natsu won by punch firing the big bad gay of that arc? Fucking badass, too bad it happens only every single arc
>please note that THIS new villain squad is a totally big deal and won't go down like all other losers before them
>Erza is too cool, man. Too bad she wants to fuck Jello and killed the Treeman, Treeman was like the best fucking guy in the "Totally the Stronkest Dark Guild"
>Makarov is dying again
>I actually dropped this when Laxus oneshot Raven Tail but visit some of the threads sometimes
>many arcs have a nice buildup but leave the reader with blue balls of disappointment
>most of characters are good or okay, too bad they are in the "Erza overpowers and Natsu overpowers, so fucking cool" manga
>Cobra has a nice pet snake, pic related
What was the point of Acnologia as a character? He only exists for Zeref to have a reason to do what he did, causing the final arc.
hey, Tenrou Island was good, and the GMG were perfectly fine, except for that bullshit with Sting and Rogue losing
The only "bad" fights were Natsu wrecking that War God and Bluenote
I would decrease fanservice or art because if you look at it again, hands not on dick, Mashima knows only 2 body types, loli and cowtits. Even faces are the same. Erza and Lucy are the same, the only difference is hairstyle and clothing.
Technically you could think of him as the overpowered final boss that Zeref wasn't.
Though none of what I said works. Zeref should be pverpowered to begin with and got his hands on the litteral infinite magic. Godamn Fairy Heart was such a joke like everything in this arc. You only needed Natsu/Erza/Lucy/Wendy to resolve all the major shits.
Nothing new. 2 underlings of the STRONKEST DARK GUILD beat Iron Dragon Retard to almost death and were like:"Hehehe, you didn't even see our 7 Shounen Purgatory Dudes and Dudettes, they will murder you, hehe."
The only people of note there were the Treeman (needed a serious asspull to get beaten in one hit), maybe the Glasses dude and the old Guy Who Gets Punched by Natsu of the arc. That's like 3 out of 8. Ultear was pathetic. Not even appearing in arcs before could save her.
Godamn I really don't want to see this happen. I want a full orgy in the guild. He can always put photos of the married couples like it was done in FMA, but the chapter better not be about timeskip bullshit. I don't give a shit about their kids.
This should "probably" not happen since that means much less fanservice possible because of the focus on the kids.
I'm going to make the obvious couples appear in the same panels, but won't confirm anything, so shipping can fuel the manga for a while. Might make everyone meet again after ten years for Makarov's funeral, but make him come back so everyone can be happy in the last page.
> Ultear is presented as the leader of the 7
> gets solo'd by Grey
What a fucking joke. At least Treeguy felt like a thread. Most of them were fine honestly, there just wasn't enough members of FT on the island so they weren't allowed to shine. Zancrow was easily the biggest waste and the beginning of FT's descent into the sea of absolute bullshit.
Thats an insult to Madara. Even at his end he was a fucking riot of ridiculousness
Zeref started out as a very interesting character who would have been a great final boss leaving the heroes actually questioning what to do. But no he turns into just a generic named boss fight
I don't remember the actual chapter count, but Kekkashi started off with lots of promise, killed off the most popular character, and then tried to recreate that character three fucking times to win the fans back over before ending it all in a steaming pile of shit.
At that point I didn't really think any of the villains were a threat since no body important died or even showed long term scars or anything from them. one of the first villains had a fucking death flute and didn't even try to use it on them. phantom lord never did any lasting damage and neither did Laxus, oracion seis, Jellal, or the king in edolas at that point.
Oh yeah, I just remembered that there was some totally stronk guy who was there to get sent flying by Shanks so that Shanks could get lazy and leave murdering the last boss to Natsu, Erza and some bimbo plus nudist.
So that's 3 out of 9, fucking lol.
My fucking sides. I can't believe it's possible, but this is actually more anticlimactic than Bleach. I'm just going to read the last chapter to see if any of the couples fucked and had kids.
He better. But there's a new Monster Hunter around the corner so it might take a while.
12 top tier mages attacked Fiore, leaving most of Fairy Tail dead and the characters struggling to survive. Makarov died, Gildartz died, but eventually due to strategy and team cooperation they manage to take down the 12 mages and Zeref. Then Acnologia attacked. He proved to be a very interesting and deep villain with strong motivations that almost convinced many of them, but they managed to defeat him with a lot of sacrifice.
>this is actually more anticlimactic than Bleach
Not it isn't. This whole arc has been one long wave goodbye to the series and ended the way we all thought it would. Bleach was just meh.
Gurren Lagaan is the first that comes to mind, especially with the extended version where it literally is a fist that becomes a drill.
I don't know how others felt about it, but I liked the one that ended the Needless anime as well.
I didn't say there's many good Falcon Punch endings, just that this is far from the worst you can get with them.
>Retard Mard Geer picks up END's book and carries it with him, telling everyone that END is the true guildmaster of Tartaros
>END is Natsu
>Zeref never designed END to be like his other demons
>He explains that Mard Geer was just a retard carrying around the END book for no real reason
The ones that pissed me off the most were Midnight and Raven tail. you have midnight going around and making it seem like he's actually killing semi important people but then it turns out they're alive and no harm done. raven tail gets rekt by Laxus even when they got hyped up near sabertooth in the GMG. Fairy tail has some of the worst villains in the terms of doing any harm what so ever.
Yeah the lizard box was cool, and meeting Karasumori was dope. But it was so hard to enjoy anything after Gin's death because they kept shoving similar remake characters in my face and trying to force me to like them.
>that little imp that was with Zeref after the GMG
>those marks that Gray pulled out of his ass to randomly tank Memento Mori
>the survivors from Tartaros
The only think I'm interested is when a good copy of the movie is out to torrent. I just want the dance scene so I can make a webm of it and keep it as a reminder of what FT meant to me, fapbait.
You guys are pathetic. You condemn Mashima, when you can't even read his manga properly. If you can catch on the foreshadowings and can read between the lines, you can see this is the greatest manga ever, obviously intended for mature people, disguised as a battle shounen.
Did all of you forget about Ankhseram? The one who set the gears of this manga in motion? The joke, and the genius of Mashima is that he spoiled the end of his manga before in an interview. He said Ankhseram won't be the final boss. But he didn't say he won't appear. Ankhseram is a central character to the story in more than one way. Remember, he was the one who cursed Zeref with eternal life. But why? Because Zeref attempted to resurrect hi little brother. Now, this was the first point you all should have started to catch on. Why would a god get so angry about resurrection? And why is the punisment eternal life? The answer is easy, but reading FT more makes it easier: Ankhseram himslef is an immortal who wishes to die. Zeref's childish ideal of defying death fueled Ankhseram's anger, who just wanted to die, and bestowed eternal life as punisment, and as a lesson for Zeref to learn the importance of death, eternal rest.
Now, now, are you catching on? Who is the one character, who does everything to dies, yet can not achive such simple task? The one who comes back every time. The one who tries every method to die, yet fails every time.
Yes, Ankhseram is Makarov. FT is really Makarov's story of trying to die. But it's not something you can directly tell, and Mashima is a great writer who knows this well. Natsu and Lucy are not the real main characters, they are just place holders, the ones to deter the eyes of the young and unworthy from the real story of this masterpiece. Fairy Tail was always about Makarov, and his struggle to finally die and rest in piece. But he could never achive this. He is a failure, an immortal all powerful failure. A proof of Mashima's genius.
>Next chapter is just a 48 page hentai of Natus and Lucy fucking
If fucking only.
I wonder if Fairy Tail will finally get the porn it deserves when it ends, or if it'll just fade away into obscurity.
not one girl i wouldnt fuck
I swear Natsu or at least somebody better impregnate her. Jesus Christ. Lucy is literally made for breeding. Mashima should just do hentai after this. He wouldn't be the first mangaka to do it. The guys behind Black Lagoon and Maken Ki do it.
The chinks are kinda cute, here are some comments from the link in the OP
>No tits, shit chapter
>The villian of the series killed the black dragon
>Was that really the final boss...
>Both Zeref and Acnologia were shit bosses!!
>That was the perfect moment for Lucy and Natsu to kiss what the fuck
>He literally got one punched!!!
>How many children will NaLu have?
>I can't wait to see the color page!
I don't know what I was expecting, but considering I'm a powerlevelfag and a fightfag, this garbage really pissed me off.
Getting hyped for any fight, especially one with Natsu or Mary Stuza is a mistake.
>Zancrow, badass, bloodknight with GOD slaying magic that can't be eaten
>lol Imma eat it and never use it again then use a gag to beat you
>gets killed by Cuckref the edgelord
>Bluenote, controls GRAVITY and can make blackholes
>fought Gildartz, but gets destroyed by Natsu, the boring self insert for 10 year olds
>God-Serena, hyped to fucking hell, has all four magics or whatever, presumably has other abilities, destroyed his own fucking country with by himself
>oneshotted by the most boring character in the story where everyone is boring
>oneshotted again by Gildartz because why not
>Zeref, edgy faggot with death magic, le invincible, hyped as fuck
>becomes the god of time, yet fights so pathetically that he can't even destroy the small wooden shack he was fighting in
>beaten by self insert with fire, which he is supposed to be immune to
>Acnologia, the most hyped fucking thing ever in this shitty manga, kills off the only entertaining characters in the manga along with the other edgelord
>dies to a generic fire punch, something that he is explicitly stated to be immune against
This much asspain and all I did was watch a few fights and read the last 20 chapters. That fucking hack is worse than Togashi, Ishida, and Kubo put together.
its good the ayy lmaos are coming but Sumire was best villain
I'd rather cum on it's grave if you know what I mean.
>somebody better impregnate her
I hope its Gray. Just for one last big fuck you from Mashima.
To me a Falcon Punch is just about ending the whole fight, regardless of what came before, with a single hardcore punch.
Sometimes it's awesome and sometimes they're "a fist full of courage" that simply makes no sense and is anticlimactic as fuck.
Pretty much existed for plot convince, as a lazy way to get Brandish good and the Jacob fight. Stuff like that, which made me hate those chapters as a whole.
Same thing goes for this:>>159761302
Never realized it before, but Mira is the hottest fairy tail girl.
That's enough for now.
I still wait for a Doujin with them or Special Chapter that's never going to happen. At least I saw a small panel of them in this.
I'm pretty sure ships are the only things keeping FT's fanbase alive. Mashima knows this which is why over time he started drawing more and more shipbait on his twitter.
Sting punched through his gut to avenge Lector, then Minerva threw him out of the guild as he no longer fit his own description of being the strongest. Tartaros captured him and rebuilt him as a demon, and Sting and Rogue defeated him when they joined the battle on the cube.
He probably won't even show the main pairings getting together. Just timeskip, maybe some handholding and then everyone has kids.
You just know he'll do it like this.
That's one of the few good things I can say about FT. Unlike other series which are rife with fujos and shipping wars, at least made the endgame pairings extremely obvious.
>Mirajane going straight to hug Laxus
Umm,ndid I miss something?? When the fuck were these 2 a thing???
Will we see their kids too? Or is she going to cuck Happy with Lily?
OK that makes more sense
Well that's a shame, Mira and Laxus had a ton of potential and would have been a top tier ship if Mashima wasn't a lazy hack
>happy never got a humanoid form
I'm actually surprised. When it turned out she had one I was sure he would gain one as well.
Didn't Natsu try to peek on Lucy when she was in the shower? And he's also pointed out that she was sexy to him, but then later on pointed out that the novelty our seeing her naked has worn off.
Makes sense since he sleeps with her.
>natsus scarf actually looks likes like dragons scales
Okay, that's a neat little detail.
So the memories ended last chapter? That's weird.
Gajeel and Levi are together and banging daily already.
Gray and Juvia are essentially together Gray is just constantly putting it off.
Jellal and Erza are basically together, but have had to be separated because plot demands it.
Natsu and Lucy is the only one that's up in the air. Lucy obviously wants that hot dragon dick, but Natsu hasn't really shown any romantic feelings towards her. If they show everyone but Natsu and Lucy together that closes off most relationships, and then have the rest of the chapter focus on Natsu and Lucy getting together or whatever.
It's amazing how often anons talk about those three specifically and not any sort of extra combination, like, with Angel or Minerva or anything.
Hoping for the foursome ending with Lucy you guys want.
>It's amazing how often anons
It's clearly the same guy saying it once every thread.
What are you talking about?
There's been bigger asspulls in the series already, this shit is tame by comparison.
>They got Acno's actual body on a boat and trapped it in a continuously refreshing shield so he couldn't just Acno out of it.
>That caused his weird other body bullshit to lose it's power for a moment
>Natsu took the combined magic of all the Dragon slayers there and made a fist with it
>Acno tried to block and forgot he's only got one hand now cause of Igneel
>Punch hits him while he's defenseless
It's a lot of bullshit, but it's hardly the biggest asspull ever, even in this series alone.
Brago and Sherry was post final boss rival fight. Clear Note was the final antagonist whose existence was never hinted at prior to his reveal.
Clear at least got established at the start of that arc. And he had a lot of buildup.
Also, Gash Bell in general was just a better series than Fairy Tail in all regards except tits and ass.
>Some FT mage got so mad at Zeref he killed himself to chase him to the afterlife and beat him up further
>The beatdown only stops when his friends bring him back to life
I expected Natsu fighting alvarez, seeing his comrades die (for example Lucy or Erza or at least Makarov) will trigger his anger and he will turn into demon as he is supposed to be and then fight vs Grey while Grey sacrifices himself to bring Natsu back or something but no they must ruin the whole point with "power of friendship of love where even deadest people are happily alive"
These niggas still chill together. Should have jumped ship with Gajeel and Juvia
>there will never EVER be lewd doujins of brandish or dimaria written by mashima
Why even live?
Ywach was pretty damn neato up until the final hour, though. There was just no way he could follow Aizen's act. Speaking of which, where did Aizen even go after the final fight
>beginning of a new era
What you thought the ride was over?
It's funny how one simple decision can set up a whole arc for failure. In this case it was establishing that there were 12 FUCKING MAGES as powerful as the best mage from Magnoria, which is part of that group, by the way. I can just picture Mashima writing this down and thinking to himself "Oh man, I'm not even sure how I'm going to bullshit my way out of that one."
>nakama power one-shotting acno
>for torturing us for the past decade, mashima rewards his followers by opening his vault of H manga he's made over the years pandering to those of all fetishes
The dicks of those across the planet would erupt from overuse.
She is the main character idiot.
Natsu fills the "hero" role because he generally beats the boss and saves the day but the story is about Lucy. The story starts from her perspective. When the guild split up and everyone left to do their own thing we followed what Lucy went to do, when Natsu runs off on his own we hardly ever follow him, it's always centered around Lucy.
People need to understand hero and protagonist are not automatically the same person. Or you need to stop watching so many harem shows where you never bother learning the protagonists name so you just call him "MC", which leads lots of people to mistakenly believe MCs can only be men.
I wish Gray was the protagonist. Nasty was so unbelievably garbage.
>start a world war over your waifu
>get a literal fairy tale ending
>get away with her to the afterlife with zero repercussions for your 400 years of negative actions
>leave acnologia to the fodder without even fighting him once
The absolute madman
Acnologia comes back by some bullshit. Erza puts on her /fa/-approve flame detail cargo shorts and tries to slash him with a katana but it breaks and fails. Natsu tries to friendship punch him again but it fails. Acnologia kills everyone and the series ends.
Final chapter is just a full on hardcore hentai orgy featuring every single
hotcharacter in the entire series.
