I don't know what's worse, the idea that this is a time skip, or that this is somehow a hallucination. If it is a time skip, of bloody course everyone's still alive somehow, the new main character just has to find 'em all.

Are time skips considered a bad thing now?

The project Im working on has 2...although the second skip is pretty much a different series with the same cast.

Well you got one of the 3 right, lulz. Shadusk is the planet's name, and he's certainly not the 'master' of said powers...

And I meant in terms of the plot as a whole. But sense I intentionally withold key information, I'll accept your accusations of me being Broccoliche, the Cliche Master.

I guess next chapter will be when they get into the potentially heavy/downer subject of what's been happening these past seven years.

Still, it's nice to see Bisca and Alzack finally hooked up.

Wow, it's just been one nasty realisation after another for the Tenrou Island party. First their once-great guild has faded into insignificance, then they find out they're all broke (and Lucy's dad's died), now it turns out the whole world has gotten stronger and they've been left behind.


Also, I like how the chapter title was "Sky Dragon Grandine", and yet the only reference to her came on the last page. _

And I hope it's not too long before we see Gildarts again. He's become one of my favourite side characters.

Yep. For me it's about fun, cool fights and abilities, and fanservice (and how!). Deep character development is nice when it happens, but it's not a necessity for me.

I'd completely forgotten about Ultear and Meredy. Nice to see they really have changed, though.

In hindsight I really should've seen that coming. It has been seven years, after all. Depending on how old she was at Tenrou Island, she's probably around the same (physical) age as Lucy and Erza now.


Title: Re: Fairy Tail just pulled a seven year time skip. ಠ_ಠ
Post by: Ƨɒlƚy on 10 December, 2011, 01:02:51 pm
It was really more of a "Does every woman Mashima draws have to have tittays out to HERE?!" thing. Also, what a convenient deus ex machina. I suppose when Ultear showed up I was kinda expecting time magic training, as opposed to...whatever the hell it does now.


Title: Re: Fairy Tail just pulled a seven year time skip. ಠ_ಠ
Post by: Gargravarr on 10 December, 2011, 03:20:13 pm
I'd rather this than Fairy Tail getting their asses handed to them or them all getting a Natsu-esque last-minute-powerup-with-no-real explanation. Besides, I'm not so certain Mashima doesn't have something else planned with this. I mean, why bother taking away their training time at all if it's this easily rectified? It seems a pretty major thing, even if it did come along at a very convenient time.

And I'm really not about to start complaining about another bit of fanservice in this series.

Post by: Gargravarr on 13 December, 2011, 10:46:41 am
It's just occurred to me that this powerup might not be foolproof. They all might still have to get used to having so much new power before they can properly use it. Like a normal person suddenly gaining super strength, there might be a learning curve before they learn how not to break everything they touch. And given how accidentally destructive Fairy Tail were known to be before...

And some more awesome, if totally unnecessary, fanservice on page 18. I can't help wondering exactly what power or ability that "armour" is supposed to give Erza.

Well, that's two mysteries solved in one neat package. And I'd forgotten that Gajeel was a double agent. I also like the irony of using the phrase "heated competition" to describe the two Ice Make users...

But I have to say, speaking impartially, this seems a somewhat cheap way to win. If one of the Fairy Tail teams wins, people could just say it was because they had twice as many members participating.

No, a triple agent would be working for three masters. I think he's just supposed to be a false mole.

As for the cheap way to win, you have to remember that every other guild entered another team too. They all had the chance, it's just that Fairy Tail is the only guild with enough good people to get two teams in.

Also, I find it interesting that Mirajane still seems to have feelings of rivalry towards Erza.

Post by: Gargravarr on 17 February, 2012, 07:06:34 am
There's something that's always annoyed me about Fairy Tail, and has gotten stronger since Grimoire Heart first appeared. All these people want to resurrect/revive/unseal/whatever Zeref, but with the exception of Ultear and possibly Hades we're never really given any reason why. It just seems to be for the sake of random destruction which seems kind of pointless and uninteresting.

Also, is anyone else having problems with Mangastream? For at least a week I can't get it to display any pages. It just comes up with the site name and Home, Directory, etc.

On a related note, it's nice to see Ultear and Meredy being involved in a comedic moment. I mean, they both had rare, brief instances before now, but I take this as a sign they're now genuinely good guys.

I think the idea was that the 7 years would just give everybody else time to get much stronger than they were before. So FT doesn't improve and is behind the curve when they come back.

Well, Raven Tail's still finishing in high positions, but it's nice to see Sabretooth finally having some problems. But I don't remember any of the other Dragon Slayers having a problem with motion sickness before. Granted we haven't seen Laxus in that position, but Gajeel and Wendy both seemed fine when we've seen them travelling before. And Cobra didn't seem to have a problem while riding his snake, though that might have been a similar situation to Natsu and Happy...

Still, looks like things might slowly be starting to turn around for Fairy Tail. And of course we get one more parting shot to tell us that Sting is still a douche and pretty much the opposite of the Fairy Tail Dragon Slayers. Kinda wish he'd revealed his element, though.

Yyyyyuuuup. I still want to know what he wanted with Natsu, but that's obviously part of the big Zeref/Dragon/Dragonslayer mystery arc Mashima's had going on for a while.

So... Rogue continues to have doubts, Sting is either shaken or excited by Natsu's strength, we now see Team Sabretooth's final team member (who I can already imagine will become very irritating), and apparently Natsu can use electricity in his attacks even when Laxus isn't around. Huh.

Ugh, another God Slayer? Ever since that style was introduced, I've never liked it. It's just a cheap way of making an opponent a Dragon Slayer shouldn't stand a chance against, thus making a victory from said Dragon Slayer seem cheap as well. God Slayer magic can literally just be described as "exactly like Dragon Slayer mgic, but better!". And I bet, judging from his reaction and own "black" element, that Orga's the Lightning God Slayer. _


Also is it me, or do recent translations of this, Bleach, One Piece and Naruto have way more pre-chaper illustrations than they used to? This week's chapter didn't start until page eight...

Those aren't pre-chapter illustrations. They're included by the scanlators, so far as I know.

Also, yes. God Slayers are uninspired and just feel a little like "Nyah nyah, I've got better powers!"


Title: Re: Fairy Tail just pulled a seven year time skip. ಠ_ಠ
Post by: Gargravarr on 23 June, 2012, 12:31:48 pm
That's what I mean. My point is that there used to just be a couple per chapter.


Natsu has a history of pulling victories seemingly out of nowhere, but his defeat of Zancrow by "nullifying his own magic" (whatever that's supposed to mean) was probably the only one that's made me think "okay, this is a bit stupid". Next chapter will probably have Wendy either being further pwned and defeated after only just recovering from Raven Tail's actions, or pulling a similar victory out of her ass. Neither really appeals to me.

Also, isn't Dragon Slayer a Lost Magic as well? That just makes God Slayer even more pointless. Literally the only reason it exists is to subject Dragon Slayers to The Worf Effect.

How much longer until the members of Sabertooth recieve a beatdown like Raven Tail got? Too long. Mashima's really going out of his way to point out what cruel, arrogant scumbags they are. Still, at least the two Fairy Tails still take 2nd and 3rd place, that's something.

I thought she got second. She would only get last place if she got knocked out within five minutes of whoever got third place was knocked out. But the Sabertooth chick was too busy thrashing Lucy, so she made second place after the five minutes were up.

*re-reads five-minute rule* So wait, you manage to be one of the final two standing, but if you're knocked out after this point you're automatically in last place? That's... really stupid.

Did they force the match to end before or after Minerva held Lucy outside the water?

Nice to see Rufus shaken again, albeit briefly. But what did she mean by "thieves"? Or does she now consider Lucy and Yukino, and/or maybe their keys, her property? Also, she doesn't look as malevolent as most Fairy Tail enemies...

Post by: Gargravarr on 21 December, 2012, 09:35:38 am
Hopefully this won't decrease the chances of Erza laying an epic, brutal smackdown on Minerva with some new uber technique too much. After all, Minerva might be "stronger than the two dragons", but evidently so was Natsu and I'm pretty sure Erza is still stronger than him, so...

Also, even bearing in mind this new twist, I'm still less interested in the situation with Natsu et al than I am with the tournament.

And I bet, judging from his reaction and own "black" element, that Orga's the Lightning God Slayer. _

Called it. Now kick his pointless teeth in, Laxus.

Also, more of Minerva being an infuriating bitch and Kagura being angry and very short-sighted. _

And, what, Sting's suddenly a master planner? And I still don't buy that Lector's really still alive.

Sounds plausible (albeit a basic repeat of Laxus using Fairy Law), but that wouldn''t explain the blood splatter. Unless maybe Minerva suddenly stepped in and attacked one of them while they were distracted.

Huh. Well, I was sort of right.

This does smell a bit of a convenient retcon, but I'm happier with this outcome than I thought I'd be.

But yeah, I'm nominating Minerva for one of the very few Fairy Tail characters to be killed off. I guess I could make my peace with Team Sabertooth becoming friends or friendly rivals to Fairy Tail (though if anything I'd rather it was limited to Rogue and/or Sting), but that bitch has got to go. I know Gajeel was a vicious dick before his Heel-Face-Turn too, but I think I kind of always wanted him to reform (maybe because Dragon Slayers were very rare at that point, I don't know). Minerva, on the other hand, I don't want to be redeemed. I don't want her to have some excuse for why she is the way she is, like Jellal or Ultear. I want her to get what's coming to her in a big way. For once I'd like a villain to stay a villain, not turn out to be "not so bad after all" and get the shit beaten out of them.

And great. I was hoping we wouldn't have to see Minerva again so soon after the last arc. I know villains are meant to think this way, but it annoys me when they talk about revenge for the heroes just doing the right thing and stopping them doing whatever they want. What's that, Minerva? Fairy Tail retook their rightful title as strongest guild and stopped your old guild from being a bunch of deeply unpleasant tosspots? Those bastards! They must suffer at the hands of you new eeeevil guild!! _

Oh well. At least Flare seems to be trying to turn over a new leaf, albeit in a slightly creepy way. And that opening chapter was very nice.

Ah. Well, the three treasure hunters decided to go after Lucy's keys instead, but she and Wendy defeated them with the surprise help of Flare, who it turns out grew up in this village only to return after the tournament and find it in this condition. It turns out she just joined Raven Tail because she didn't know any better about the world outside the village. She's currently leading Lucy and Wendy to the Eternal Flame, from which she got her powers.

Then, while Erza struggles against Minerva, Gray comes across her partner Doriate and also gets de-aged. He manages to hold off Doriate and insult him after figuring out that he can't have been the one who froze the village, causing Doriate to lose his focus and let Gray, Erza and Natsu return to normal, just in time for Erza to counterattack a killing blow from Minerva and accidentally steal her skirt. We then cut back to Gray in time to see his opponent losing control and mutating into a huge beast similar to Zeref's demons. Now in the most recent chapter, the demon roars and this time affects everyone in the surrounding area, so now Minerva, Lucy, Flare, Wendy, Happy, Charle and the three unconscious treasure hunters are all affected as well as Gray, Erza and Natsu. Gray tries to hold the demon off but has to be rescued by Happy and Charle. He realises that the demon is instinctively avoiding the village ice so he channels it through his body and strikes, causing the demon to revert back into Doriate. He warns Gray that he's opened up "Hell's Gate" before being apparently eaten by a huge monster.

There's also been a special chapter released where Fairy Tail Team A have to do anything Team B says after Erza loses to Laxus in rock, paper, scissors.

I feel like catching up right now since almost everyone keeps mentioning this persons hips, and also rolling their eyes at fanservice during some emotional moment with Flare supposedly.

Yeah, it is a bit obvious and unnecessary. Even for Fairy Tail. I wonder if she's meant to be bent over with the "camera" loking up from under her.

Post by: Marie Rose on 04 October, 2013, 03:02:15 pm
After looking at it, I can see why people had an issue with that, it doesn't really make sense from the angle anyway.

Also, good lord, those were some hips.

Post by: Gargravarr on 04 October, 2013, 04:02:45 pm
Her outfit isn't even bulky enough for it to deceptive armour or something. Dem hips really are all her.

"I'm Hiro Mashima and I'll finish this arc with what we all came here to see: hardcore fanservice!"

Anyway, this talk of demon-worshipping just makes me wonder even more what a Devil-Slayer is doing with Tartarus. Whatever happens, I bet this next arc is going to be long and heavy. I don't tend to like things that "shake up the world". _

Okay, not the Worf Effect, just a means of knocking one of the guild's most powerful members (and his three cronies) out of this arc.

Why can't Minerva just die? Apart from the unpleasant prospect of her becoming even more hax than she already was, I'm getting really fed up with the character.

With the amount of fanservice in Fairy Tail, I think it can afford to lose her.

Well, I think Lisanna's set a new record for smallest shorts in this series.

And now I think we know for certain that everything will turn out okay. All magic in the world isn't going to be nullified. Although judging by Natsu's fight with Zancrow that might somehow actually make everything more potent...

Post by: Gargravarr on 01 January, 2014, 11:57:11 am
Something tells me they'll succeed in turning Mirajane over to their side, however briefly, just to make things that much harder for Fairy Tail. And that much more heartbreaking for her siblings.


With the amount of fanservice in Fairy Tail, I think it can afford to lose her.
The amount of nudity and skimpy clothing over impressive curves in this chapter alone is probably enough to render Minerva completely unneecessary.

And is it me, or has Mashima recently been putting more emphasis on hips that he used to?

More nudity, possibly-lesbian demons and a posessed Elfman. This chapter has quite a lot in it.

Kind of hoping that knight guy isn't just Gray from the future or something, like Rogue.

And why do I get the feeling that Face is going to be triggered and then Fairy Tail will have to find some way of bringing magic back to the world?

I'm a bit annoyed that transferring the key was apparently that easy. Unless the ex-chairman quickly transferred it again to someone else out of spite just after his stabbing or something.

Post by: Gargravarr on 07 February, 2014, 09:00:00 am
So Minerva's going to be even more overpowered and irritating than before, two more demons have been introduced, one of whom is your standard sickly-cute girl with a disturbing side, Mira's going to be demon-ised and Fairy Tail's been destroyed.

Ho hum...

Hopefully it's like Natsu's lightning powers.
