FAIRY TAIL – 142 »« FAIRY TAIL – 140


「無限時計を追え」 (Mugen Tokei o Oe)
“Hunt Down the Infinity Clock”

There’s a lot going on in FAIRY TAIL today. We now know that Oración Seis are the culprits behind the church incidents, although it was quite obvious before this considering that we recently found out that Jackpot is part of the group. Their motive isn’t very clear, but Cobra seems to be looking for someone – I assume it’s Kinana. Also, I think it’s quite apparent that Rapowant is pulling Oración Seis’ strings, and his conversation with Lahar made it very evident that he presumably helped them out of confinement.

With Rapowant holding all powers in his hands, it seems like FAIRY TAIL now have to face both Oración Seis and the Legion Corps, with the latter getting a new member – Gatman Kubrick. Natsu’s team seems to be up for a fight against Jackpot and Byro, and speaking of teams – these new teams surprised me a little. The combinations are very random and unique for most groups so I expect some interesting battles in the upcoming episodes. Gray and Freed was probably the most surprising group, poor Juvia

I’m wondering why Cana included Michelle in Natsu’s team. While she is part of this mission, she’s not a mage. I understand that she’s a main character for this arc so she has to be included, but still, I can’t see her as anything but a disadvantage. But Michelle is very mysterious and technically an enigma, so I guess there is more to her than what we’ve seen so far.

It seems that Kinana is returning to her original form, a snake, but I wonder why she carved that message in the wall, I mean, how is she related to Will Neville? As it seems now, Will Neville is connected with stellar magi – people Kinana shares no connections with. Perhaps Cobra does, as he works under Rapowant who is looking for Will Neville’s disciples.

Finally, we’ve got a bit more Gildarts (and Laki). I think they might be looking into Michelle’s background but I wonder why someone as strong as Gildarts would take on such a mission…

Having so many things going on right now with a lot of interesting battles coming up, this arc keeps getting better and better!

Moete kitazou!

    Oh, I’ve been meaning to ask just how on Fiore do you make those full-length shots?!
    It’s really awesome!

    I love Juvia ever since the Fantasia arc; during her battle with Cana against Freed, I saw that she truly cared for Fairy Tail. I was hoping for a team-up with Gajeel (due to the Phantom Lord connection), but now during her journey with Gajeel against the Oración Seis, I am afraid she might be complaining about not being with Gray. At first, her obsession was okay, not desired, but okay. Now, she have gotten too clingy. Gray have not returned her feelings as of yet, and so I am glad for Lyon to come in and sweep her off her feet.

    In essence, where is the strong and independent Juvia that I love?

    Is it just me or does this look like this series will go with an anime original ending?

    Was Kinana saying what Cobra was saying at first? Where is master Markov now anyways? Is Cana going to do something…watch the guild while the rest are gone? Aside from these questions the episode was packed with enjoyment. It was satisfying to see that both the good and bad sides are progressing the story plot. I suppose next episode will actually show that girl with the Plu look-alike. I hope Coco is still alright by then.

    I think Will Neville disciple is Layla, Lucy mother witch will explain why Lucy father is related to this.

    The girl at the end very much looks like Wendy. The blue hair, the bangs, the brown eyes… and the flat chest. Compare these two pictures:
