FAIRY TAIL – 169
「ウェンディ vs. シェリア」 (Wendii vs. Sheria)
“Wendy vs. Chelia”
What is a family? That is a good question, and I believe my answer to that is in line with Laxus’. To me, the bond between hearts is more important than the bonds of blood. And I don’t see why there should be any obligations in a family, especially in the Dreyar one. There is a matter of course a matter of responsibilities and duties that come with a bond, but those are relevant when there is love – something that can’t be found between Ivan and Laxus. I absolutely loved seeing Laxus stand up for his true family. He was marvellous and truly respectable. And wow, what an epic battle! So much for Raven Tail being an anti-FAIRY TAIL guild… Seven years is obviously not enough time – and I doubt any amount is – to surpass FAIRY TAIL. Especially not when they’re fighting for their nakama. I’m really glad that Laxus simply didn’t take down an entire team on his own, but also made them pay for what they had done for his team mates. Well, technically they aren’t his team mates, but they’re his fellow companions from the same guild. Nothing is more enjoyable and heart warming than companionship, in my opinion that is.
Raven Tail may be out of the picture for now, but obviously this is not the last time we’ll see them. With Lumen Histoire hidden beneath the old guild, I’m sure there will be more to expect from this guild. And seeing how Obra’s little pet ran away while he himself seemed unconscious made me wonder if that little creature is his true self while the larger body is just a vessel. I’m not sure but whatever he is, he is a terrible person and I want to see him burn for messing up Lucy’s amazing battle. Well, enough about that. Let’s not forget that there were two battles in today’s episode!
Wendy and Chelia’s duel was not very interesting to me while I was reading about it the manga. I thought the fight itself was just made for some cuteness in the middle of all the raw action, but I must say, the anime made me change my mind. I absolutely loved Wendy’s fight. It was intense, exhilarating, and of course, adorable! I enjoyed this battle a lot more in the anime, perhaps because of the amazing music and the extended action? Anyway, it was really nice to see Wendy back in action. It makes me happy to see characters like her who can be both cute and intimidating at the same time. Chelia was also really impressive. It’s nice to see opponents that are kind and not arrogant jerks like the members of Sabertooth. It’s quite interesting that Wendy and Chelia are both young and cute girls with similar magic. Even though Chelia clearly has an advantage in this fight, I doubt that she’ll ever be able to beat Wendy. Let’s not forget that the FAIRY TAIL members are as strong as one can be when they’re fuelled by their love for their friends. And that’s what’s going in Wendy’s heart right now. I definitely look forward to the continuation of this loli battle. Hopefully it will be even better than today’s amazing episode!
