Some of you told me that the summary was unnecessary, but there were also those who wanted the summary to stay. After some discussions with the other writers, and some people on the IRC channel, I’ve come to the conclusion – the summary stays. If you don’t want to read it, just scroll past the blue border!
Wow, this sure was an intense chapter. This was one of the best chapters in this arc so far! I don’t know how to start writing my impressions because it was so good!
Okay, let’s start with the keys. I’ve always wanted to see Lucy being the owner of all the golden keys, but I’m very glad she declined the offer. I would hate to see her get the keys like this. But I’m assuming she will end up having them after this arc ends.
As for Yukino – I must say, I like her. I’m expecting her to become a FAIRY TAIL member soon. I seriously hope nothing bad will happen to her or Lucy because of this “Eclipse”. She has already been through so much. I was so surprised to find her crying over a mere apology from Natsu.
And speaking of Natsu… Much like I had expected, the way Sabertooth handled Yukino was good fuel for Natsu’s rage. He is pretty much of an idiot, running off to challenge the guild master, but that’s what shounen heroes are supposed to be! The last pages of the chapter left me gritting my teeth because I wanted more! I’m pretty sure this battle will go nowhere for now because of Eclipse, but you never know when it comes to FAIRY TAIL.
Something else worth mentioning before I end this post is Erza and Gray’s conversation. I’m so happy someone finally asked Gray about Juvia, lighting up some hope for the romance lovers. As you might’ve noticed from my anime posts, I’m a big fan of Juvia x Gray. But I’d be very surprised if they’d end up being a couple. I’d love to see that, but Juvia is at her best when she is jealous (and having some wild imaginations), so for now, I think I prefer her being a creepy Gray-supporter.
I think that’s everything I wanted to include in this post. Having that said, I’m expecting a fantastic chapter next week!
