FAIRY TAIL – 174
「四人の竜（ドラゴン）」 (Yonnin no Doragon)
Wow, what an episode! It has been a while since we saw an episode dedicated to action only and I must say that I’ve really missed one like today’s. I loved this battle in the manga and I love it even more in the anime. I really enjoyed seeing both sides having their moments in the battle. It’s a fair and exciting fight and I’m glad it’s not over yet!
It’s quite hard to come up with things to write about an episode that focused on one thing only but I’ll do my best. Let’s see, maybe I should start with Sabertooth? As many of you probably are aware of, I’m not a huge fan of that guild considering what kind of attitude most of the people there have. But I do admit, this part of the story makes me see Sting in a slightly better light. That doesn’t mean that I forgive his rude personality though. Still, I liked seeing that a jerk like him also has a heart. Too bad that positive side of his is only limited to his dear friend Lector. Their promise may be a childish one but it was certainly sweet. As for Rogue, hmm… I believe I’ve said before that I see him as the only decent character of Sabertooth. And if I haven’t, there, I said it.
Enough about a guild that sucks, on to FAIRY TAIL! It feels great to finally see Gajeel and Natsu showing what they’re capable of. Their previous battle, the Chariot event, was not entirely fair to the two of them considering what kind of handicap they both have where vehicles are concerned. I really like seeing Natsu using his brain properly in battles. Usually he just throws himself into a fight using all his force but this time, he actually had some sort of strategy. I wonder if burning off that mark hurt… Anyway, Natsu was clever – he studied his opponent fairly well and hopefully the result of his observations will bring us an epic finale to this amazing show.
Having said that, I wish to apologise for the short post, but I don’t have much more to add to this. I can’t believe that this anime is ending next week, but who knows? Mashima has stated that this isn’t over yet so hopefully that means that we’ll see more in the future. Anyway, I need to prepare my heart for the ending, which most likely will be epic!
Note: I will be away for a while (see the announcements), so all my posts will be delayed. Thanks for understanding!
Special note: This isn’t relevant to anime at all, and probably something very insignificant to you, but please, if you care for this planet, and have the opportunity to do this, then please, turn off the lights during Earth Hour today. It isn’t much but it helps. I’d be very happy if some of you took this into consideration. It’s just for an hour! So if you can, please, turn off the lights.
