「透明ルーシィの恐怖!」 (Toumei Ruushii no Kyoufu!)
“The Terror of Invisible Lucy!”
Let’s paint Lucy!
The third station for this filler train is invisible Lucy, and was this episode a good one? – Yes it was. It wasn’t what I had expected. When I saw the preview last week, I assumed this to be more emotional. I thought we’d be able to see the importance of Lucy in this guild, but somehow, this turned into a comedic episode where everyone is making fun of her. Not that I mind, because painting Lucy was a brilliant idea!
Personally, my favorite “Lucy” is the afro version, but nothing beats the original. An invisible Lucy is fine too, especially if she’s running around town – naked. But invisibility does not erase one’s scent, so Natsu found Lucy quite easily – and probably grabbed her somewhere he shouldn’t have (what’s with all the groping this week?).
Unfortunately, the potion Lucy bathed in – that caused this problem – was seven years old, so its effects had changed. Instead of being invisible, her whole presence slowly faded away. But luckily, one person’s memory was stronger than the rest – Natsu saves the day again! However, he and the rest of the guild, excluding Lucy, became invisible instead.
While I do think that the conclusion of this episode was a bit sudden and fast, it wasn’t disappointing. However, I wanted Lucy to get a little bit more love than this. Lucy is a great character but unfortunately, she never gets any good moment to shine in this story. Her “cool” moments are very few. But as I said in the first paragraph, I don’t mind that it turned out this way.
With that being said, I can finally say that the real original story arc is coming up, as seen on the preview. As far as I know, the original story arc will have Lucy and her father’s relationship (and the new girl) in focus – something I’m looking forward to. So what are we waiting for? Let’s get on the train again!
