「無限時計を追え」 (Mugen Tokei o Oe)
“Hunt Down the Infinity Clock”
There’s a lot going on in FAIRY TAIL today. We now know that Oración Seis are the culprits behind the church incidents, although it was quite obvious before this considering that we recently found out that Jackpot is part of the group. Their motive isn’t very clear, but Cobra seems to be looking for someone – I assume it’s Kinana. Also, I think it’s quite apparent that Rapowant is pulling Oración Seis’ strings, and his conversation with Lahar made it very evident that he presumably helped them out of confinement.
With Rapowant holding all powers in his hands, it seems like FAIRY TAIL now have to face both Oración Seis and the Legion Corps, with the latter getting a new member – Gatman Kubrick. Natsu’s team seems to be up for a fight against Jackpot and Byro, and speaking of teams – these new teams surprised me a little. The combinations are very random and unique for most groups so I expect some interesting battles in the upcoming episodes. Gray and Freed was probably the most surprising group, poor Juvia…
I’m wondering why Cana included Michelle in Natsu’s team. While she is part of this mission, she’s not a mage. I understand that she’s a main character for this arc so she has to be included, but still, I can’t see her as anything but a disadvantage. But Michelle is very mysterious and technically an enigma, so I guess there is more to her than what we’ve seen so far.
It seems that Kinana is returning to her original form, a snake, but I wonder why she carved that message in the wall, I mean, how is she related to Will Neville? As it seems now, Will Neville is connected with stellar magi – people Kinana shares no connections with. Perhaps Cobra does, as he works under Rapowant who is looking for Will Neville’s disciples.
Finally, we’ve got a bit more Gildarts (and Laki). I think they might be looking into Michelle’s background but I wonder why someone as strong as Gildarts would take on such a mission…
Having so many things going on right now with a lot of interesting battles coming up, this arc keeps getting better and better!
