「動き始めた刻（とき）」 (Ugoki Hajimeta Toki)
“The Time Has Begun”
I loved this episode! It’s probably my favorite one in this arc so far, and that’s because of the story development and the spirit of the fight, it was so intense (and it had the amazing “Dragon Slayer” playing in the background), but I think the best parts were the dialogues between the guild members and Byro. The best thing about the fillers in this anime is that they don’t lose any quality as original stories. The plots are very relevant; they don’t feel random at all. Also, the characters – they are always interesting no matter what the setting is, and this is why I enjoy fillers in FAIRY TAIL.
Quite a lot happened today – the clock is complete, the main FAIRY TAIL members are gathered, Coco switched side as expected, Kinana has gone crazy (probably got her memories back or something like that), and Oración Seis is back with some replaced members (turns out that Jackpot is one of them)!
I’m trying to figure out how Oración Seis is related to the Infinity Clock. I expected them to show up in this arc because of Kinana but not for the clock. And speaking of Kinana, did she get her memories back? While she is a key character in this arc, there hasn’t been much about her until now, so I wonder how she will affect the guild. Is she going to be a villain? Will she return to Cobra? The opening sequence makes it look like they might take different sides…
As expected, Coco is no longer on Zentopia’s side, but she didn’t make her choice because of Lucy – it’s because of the moral aspect in Zentopia’s view on justice. It’s hard to define justice as it’s such a vague topic, but I must say that Happy’s speech was amazing. FAIRY TAIL might have a bunch of naïve members, but their team morale is better than the other guilds’ and I find that admirable.
The characters arguing about the definition of justice was really exciting, and I almost got goose bumps when everyone arrived with the clock parts. I was in awe at the end and I didn’t think it could get any better, but it did!
Now that the clock is activated (the chaos is starting), and Oración Seis is back, I expect things to be really intense and exciting. It looks like there’ll be some fighting next week, also, Blue Pegasus will return – I’m looking forward to that!
