「動き始めた刻(とき)」 (Ugoki Hajimeta Toki)
“The Time Has Begun”

I loved this episode! It’s probably my favorite one in this arc so far, and that’s because of the story development and the spirit of the fight, it was so intense (and it had the amazing “Dragon Slayer” playing in the background), but I think the best parts were the dialogues between the guild members and Byro. The best thing about the fillers in this anime is that they don’t lose any quality as original stories. The plots are very relevant; they don’t feel random at all. Also, the characters – they are always interesting no matter what the setting is, and this is why I enjoy fillers in FAIRY TAIL.

Quite a lot happened today – the clock is complete, the main FAIRY TAIL members are gathered, Coco switched side as expected, Kinana has gone crazy (probably got her memories back or something like that), and Oración Seis is back with some replaced members (turns out that Jackpot is one of them)!

I’m trying to figure out how Oración Seis is related to the Infinity Clock. I expected them to show up in this arc because of Kinana but not for the clock. And speaking of Kinana, did she get her memories back? While she is a key character in this arc, there hasn’t been much about her until now, so I wonder how she will affect the guild. Is she going to be a villain? Will she return to Cobra? The opening sequence makes it look like they might take different sides…

As expected, Coco is no longer on Zentopia’s side, but she didn’t make her choice because of Lucy – it’s because of the moral aspect in Zentopia’s view on justice. It’s hard to define justice as it’s such a vague topic, but I must say that Happy’s speech was amazing. FAIRY TAIL might have a bunch of naïve members, but their team morale is better than the other guilds’ and I find that admirable.

The characters arguing about the definition of justice was really exciting, and I almost got goose bumps when everyone arrived with the clock parts. I was in awe at the end and I didn’t think it could get any better, but it did!

Now that the clock is activated (the chaos is starting), and Oración Seis is back, I expect things to be really intense and exciting. It looks like there’ll be some fighting next week, also, Blue Pegasus will return – I’m looking forward to that!

Moete kitazou!

    Never thought Happy was a good speaker.
    Michelle looks suspicious really at some parts. Her face is stern at times. Was hoping for some caps of that.
    And that priest in Zentopia kind of looks like Brain/Zero from Oracion Seis, which makes a grand entrance in the last part.
    Anyways, let’s see how they play out in this story, along with Kinana, whom we finally got a little tidbit.

    Kinana slim >>> Kinana fat.

    Kinana yandere mode ON.
    I found incredible funny that Natsu couldn’t get Byro any angry, but Happy (with the awesome speech) got him on his nerves. Good arc so far, and now with the arrival of Oracion Seis I believe it will turn even better.

    Fantastic episode. Filler who? Its as good as the original story.

    Also, let’s not forget about the few moments where creepy Michelle shows up again. When everyone was about to be blasted by Byro’s attack, she just stood there with a serious face and no emotion (and it seems Dan noticed that).

    And the couple of lines she had in the dialogue with Byro was interesting, where she mentions that is must be easy to make decisions when you don’t have to worry about whether it’s right or wrong.

    Regardless of what her true intentions are, she’s a character that is becoming increasingly interesting. I sure hope they manage to leave her in the show permanently past this arc.

    Any idea how much longer this filler will go on?

    • July 14, 2012 at 3:31 pmKitty

      Its slotted till ep 142 so far…. I think its going to be awhile XD

      but i must admit. It is a interesting “Filler”. an Anime original Story Line. “fascinating” *Spook like*

      • July 14, 2012 at 3:53 pmKitty

        Oh I love it very much~~~ Fairy Tail filler is like the only filler I can stand! I think because its so much like the ‘actual’ show ^__^

    Since zentopia priest shouting about eternal midnight, I think Midnight will use it to boost his magical energy since he said when he battle with Erza that his magical energy reach its maximum when midnight. And I wonder what will Angel use since three of her golden key is in Lucy possesion.

    Anyway filler in Fairy Tail is always good like 24 hour race and one that Juvia buy love potion and make guild go crazy.

    It’s always great seeing realistically-proportioned anime characters who don’t look half bad.

    Great episode. Haven’t seen Happy make that face since his awesome speech in Edolas.

    Angel looks great; maybe we will get the return of Caelum (and introduction of other silver spirits this arc).

    Disappointed that Racer is still alive only because that takes away from his earlier “death scene”.

    Michelle definitely knows more than she is saying but ultimately I don’t think she will be a bad guy.

    Why is Lucy hallucinating? Who is that creepy little girl? Don’t mind me….
    Another great fight scene of everyone’s combo attacks in this episode.

    As good as an episode this was, there were just a couple of things that had me literally saying, “WTF is going on?”:

    1. How did everyone else meet with Natsu and co. so fast, and know exactly where they were? I’m guessing they were using the clock parts as compasses when they started reacting with each other, but they never say that. But hey, whatever the plot demands. Not that I’m eager for the filler to end soon, though it’s clearly reaching its final act…

    2. What’s causing the Archbishop and Kinana to go crazy? I’m more than positive their behavior will be addressed in the future, though; I think they may have even already foreshadowed it with Carla’s vision in episode 132 (it may have something to do with the parts and/or Cobra; I had a feeling they really would bring him back at the time everyone was uncertain that he would be). But for now…food for thought.

    • July 16, 2012 at 2:55 amMisk

      If I recall didn’t they decide they’d meet there once all the clock parts are found? At least that’s what I remember Natsu/Romeo w/e was saying.

    Must love Fairy Tail ^_^ Michelle’s storyline is quite interesting since she entered fairy tail. Its quite mysterious what her role is. I have a lot of theories, Like she could be Lucy’s mom who is a spirit or something XD One thing is for sure, I LOVE MICHELLE’S storyline :)

    i might be late to notice this but, byro cracy and bureaucracy.
