This makes me so sad…
I don’t even know where to start, just wow. I’m glad I wasn’t wrong when I suspected that Rogue might be evil. Well, that might be debatable but I think that he did a horrible thing. I know he was probably desperate considering what kind of future he comes from, but I don’t know why he tried to kill someone who is obviously weaker than him. He could simply just restrain her or keep an eye on her. But then again, going against Lucy if she were to stand in his way would mean going against FAIRY TAIL… I don’t know really, but I just can’t stand the fact that someone would kill someone because of “fate”.
I can’t even imagine Lucy going against saving the world from such a horrifying future. I’m trying to figure out what reasons she might have to do so. Is it the fact that Fiore will be wiped out? Which reminds me, what year did Lucy come from again? Is the future Lucy from the same time as Rogue? Did they sacrifice the worlds they lived in by going back in time? Ahh, this is so confusing.
Anyway, I can’t see anyone getting in the way of Eclipse. I wonder if Rogue lost Frosch in that future? He seemed so desperate. I still don’t see why FAIRY TAIL winning the Grand Magic Games makes any difference for what’s about to happen. I guess I should stop speculating and just write about the actual content of this chapter before I end up frying my brain.
Watching Lucy die was truly painful. Even if she wasn’t the actual Lucy, I just can’t stand seeing one of the characters I love dying. She wasn’t even able to defend herself. I felt so sad. And seeing her last moments nearly made me cry. Her being happy about having her loved ones nearby was truly heartbreaking and made me wonder what happened to everyone in the future. Who died? Who lived? What really made me sad was the panel where we saw Natsu looking back at the moment when Lucy got her guild mark. This was truly a sad chapter, but in a way, I loved it because it made things so intriguing.
A lot of people say that characters don’t die in this series, and I don’t know if this death is enough to prove them wrong. For me, characters not dying or losing has never been an issue. I don’t even see why you’re reading this manga if you feel bothered by the lack of character deaths. This is, and always will be, a series about friendship and overcoming hardships together. Perhaps this was a very random thing to bring up, but I’ve been surprised to see so many complaints about this issue. Oh well, some people love to hate and I assume that’s just something I have to accept. As for me, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to stop loving this series. I find the characters of FAIRY TAIL so respectable and I hate seeing them suffer. Seeing Lucy die was more than enough; I hope I won’t have to see that happen again (to another character I love). Anyway, I look forward to seeing how Natsu will fight Rogue. I assume the person in front of him is much stronger than the one he defeated in the arena. But then again, I doubt anyone is able to stop Natsu when he is that angry.
Note: I will be away for a while (see the announcements), so all my posts will be delayed. Thanks for understanding!
