FAIRY TAIL 322 – Gloria
I just…. can’t. This was so fdsjgklsjgslkdgjskhjfskhj
I just need to calm myself down a bit before I start writing anything that makes sense… Ah, who am I kidding, when does my writing make sense? Anyway, there, I have calmed down!
This chapter was amazing. I know there are a lot of mixed opinions about this week’s FAIRY TAIL, so I expect a lot of rage and a lot of joy. As for me, well, I always want FAIRY TAIL to win so I’m really happy with the way things went. I absolutely loved seeing Juvia and Gray defeat Lyon and Chelia in such a romantic way. I wish they would’ve performed some sort of Unison Raid, but oh well, luckily I’ve already seen them do it because of one of the filler episodes in the anime! I’m not disappointed though, in fact, I’m very happy with the way their battle was handled. I totally didn’t fangirl while seeing them hold hands or anything, nope, not at all. And it’s becoming more obvious that Gray likes the girl. Perhaps he has started liking her because of Lyon? Hmm, maybe Lyon is a bit more likeable now…
As for Erza’s battle, I must say, I do think Minerva was defeated too easily. She seemed so insanely strong. Minerva has constantly been taking down people without any difficulties so this was slightly anti-climatic. But that doesn’t make Erza any less impressive, because, wow. That armour! I wonder if Erza would be able to take down Gildarts while wearing that… But I assume it’s quite hard to keep it up for too long considering how much stamina it requires – which makes me wonder how Erza managed to wear it at all considering how worn out she seemed to be right before putting it on. But who needs logic? Nakama power is all that matters, and I’m not being sarcastic. I truly love to see when characters become stronger through their friends. Bonds between people are truly amazing, and they’re the main reason why I love this series so much.
And it’s not just the bonds in FAIRY TAIL. Seeing Sting and Lector reunited made me tear up. I am so glad to see that Lector is alive and well. Even though Sting is a jerk with the worst personality ever, he still has a heart. It was a bit surprising to see Lector being that well though. I thought Minerva would be more cruel and do something horrible to him. Her personality and strength have become quite questionable after this chapter. And so is her choice of underwear. I always thought she would go for the more elegant style, like lace or something… Err, what am I talking about?
I have been rambling a lot today. Perhaps I should stop and get to the main part of this chapter. FAIRY TAIL won the Grand Magic Games. Oh, the polarity among the readers! As I said before, I couldn’t have been happier with the result. The guild definitely earned this victory righteously. It’s a fair result, but perhaps some of the battles were quite questionable. Still, it was so amazing. My feelings are all over the place and I just want to squeal because I’m so happy!
What worries me now is the fact that this is something that shouldn’t have happened according to… hmm, according to who? We don’t know if the future Lucy is real or not, or if the princess is plotting something and using Lucy as an excuse. I don’t understand how this victory is going to make dragons attack Fiore at all. It makes me a bit sad that FAIRY TAIL isn’t “allowed” to win, but I guess this makes things more exciting. It’s hard to tell where things will go from now on. I’m wondering if this was an arc ending or not, I mean, the tournament is over but the potential war is still a part of this. If this war is huge thing, then maybe it should have its own arc? Whatever happens, I’m sure it will be really amazing. It has been a while since I was this excited while reading FAIRY TAIL. I’m really looking forward to whatever the princess has in mind. I just hope Fiore won’t be wiped out in the process even though that is most likely to happen. But we’ll see! I really look forward to next week’s chapter. The war is on!
