Let’s Look:Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 29: Giving The Spirits Their Wishes!

Feel free to read the review but to be straight nothing major happens. You can skip it and go straight to next episode without missing much.

So this episode doesn’t have much stuff to work with so it’s going to be a kinda short.

So Lucy and Yukino along with Natsu and Happy go up the Hill of Stars to summon all 12 Celestial Spirits to thank them for closing the Eclispe Gate during the battle against the Dragons.

So Lucy and Yukino decide to summon each Spirit one by one to let them have any wish they want from them.

And that’s it! I could really end the review there and you’d be ready for the next episode.

However I respect you all too much for that and I’m listening to ‘See You at the Elementario’ by Brilliant Four(The Ending for Amagi Brilliant Park) so I’m in the mood for some extra stuff.

So I’m going to heroically count down my top favorite moments in this one. That counts as a review? Right?

Anyway coming in at number 10 is Libra!

Libra is the Spirit of the Scales and she belongs to Yukino. So what do you want Libra?

That’s it? You can see why it’s number 10…

So moving on number 9 is Aries!

Aries is the Spirit of the Ram and she belongs to Lucy. So what could she want?

Snapshot_7

She wants a tan? We’ve got tanning beds for this…

Snapshot_8

Too much dude…

Snapshot_9

Well at least she’s happy…

Coming around the park at number 8 is Taurus!

Taurus is the Spirit of the Bull and he belongs to Lucy. We all know he’s a S-Class pervert so what does he want?

Well he’s got good taste…and with that he heads home.

Around at number 7 is Cancer!

Cancer is the Spirit of the Crab and he also belongs to Lucy. So what could a hairdresser from the sea want?

Hmm so how it turn out?

Snapshot_17

Hahahaha but this reminds me of the Tarturus Arc when…I can’t tell you sorry. I’m not going to give spoilers for you anime only viewers.

At number 6 is Capricorn.

Capricorn is the Spirit of the Goat and he also belongs to Lucy. So let’s get it to it.

Snapshot_18

Snore

What?! What?! I’m awake! He just started reading and I just blacked out for a minute.

So now we’re getting down to the good ones.

Coming in at number 5 is Gemini.

Gemini are the twin Spirits of the …well the Twins and they along belong to Lucy. Love these guys.

Hahaha it hurts to laugh so much.

Coming in at number 4 is Sagittarius.

Yeah he belongs to Lucy too and he’s the Spirit of the Archer.

Oh god! It hurts! It hurts to laugh this much. Not only does Happy get a afro but it gets cut by an arrow!

Next up at number 3 is Leo.

He belongs to Lucy and he’s the Spirit of the Lion and leader of the Zodiac. He’s also a member of Fairy Tail but that’s another story.

So what do you want Loke?

Hmmm I completely agree! Soft soft, white hair, curvy figure! I’d go for her too!

Close to the number 1 is number 2 is Pisces.

They belong to Yukino and they are the Spirits of the Fish. So what do they want?

Ah the sweet irony! The fish eats the cat! Hahaha good one!

The great number one is Aquarius.

She belongs to Lucy and she’s the Spirit of the Water Bearer.

Aquarius isn’t my favorite because of the comedy but because of the bond that she has with Lucy.

Aquarius is the first Spirit that Lucy obtain after her mother died. And because of being rich, Lucy didn’t have any friends so Aquarius was the only companion she had.

So Lucy does a little play with Yukino to try and make Aquarius laugh. It doesn’t work…epically and she ends washing them out and Lucy gets hung on a branch on a cliffside.

Aquarius pulls her off and puts her under a blanket so she won’t get a cold. She has a flashback of Lucy when she was younger.

Now we all know that Aquarius is …not a friendly person but Lucy did love her and cherished playing with her.

As we can see through the flashback, Aquarius cares for her too.

This last part could actually work in the canon since it really enhances a certain part of the Tarturus arc when Lucy summons Aquarius.

I could tell what happens but why spoil you? All I have to say is that I really hope that Eri Kitamura and Aya Hirano can give it their all in that scene.

So the episode ends with Lucy and Aquarius sitting down and looking at the stars.

Snapshot_46

So it was a funny episode and the part with Aquarius was really nice. So I’ll give Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 29 a 7/10 for good feels and some good comedy.

Now things are serious! The filler arc is coming next week. I hope it’s good. Although I really wished that they adapted A Day with Asuka and 419 Days. But hey they’ll do it someday.

But next the next review,
Later Days

Let’s Look: Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 28: Bunny Erza, Maid Erza, and How Bisca Joined Fairy Tail

This is one of the times that I love Erza. She’s a great character and one of the most badass female characters that manga has. But my favorite part is her love of cosplay!

So this episode start off like any other. Something crazy and strange happening in the Fairy Tail.

Snapshot_1

I have to say I’m half good at pool.

So Gray and Juvia went on a job together(totally going to end up together) and the guy that gave the job playing a few games of pool with them. Then he gave them the table in addition to the reward. Nice old guy.

So Gray prepares to shoot some pool the only way he knows how.

Snapshot_2

Is there one activity in the world where he doesn’t take off his clothes?

I haven’t found it yet. And I’ve watched the entire original series, read every chapter of the manga, watched all 6 OVAs, and even read Fairy Tail Zero and Ice Trail.

Anyway everyone totally swoons over Gray’s awesome pool skills. So of course Natsu has to try it out.

Snapshot_3

Not even close man. Like not even in the same reality close.

So Happy joins in by pitching the cue ball…and making a golf reference. Do you even know what you playing cat?!

So predictably everything goes to chaos, pool balls flying everywhere and breaking stuff.

Now this is funny.

Snapshot_4

Now that’s just blatantly asking for sex. More points to Gruvia for being the best Fairy Tail ship!

Back on track…

Snapshot_5 Snapshot_6

At this point Erza has a flashback of when she went to a pool hall expecting sweets. She’s wrong and they direct her to the sweet shop next door.

Normal right? Wrong! With Erza Scarlett of Fairy Tail nothing can be normal!

This is what she shoots pool in.

Snapshot_7 Snapshot_8

Hey she wore that in the 6th OVA, Fairy x Rave! As you can see I am a big Fairy Tail fan…but you can see that by the fact that I review it every week.

So Erza totally destorys all the balls and pretty much wrecks the place. However while she’s all sexy in her bunny girl costume, one of the guys notices her Fairy Tail guild mark on her arm.

They all get afraid.

Snapshot_9

As they should be. Why? Because it’s Erza!

So turns out that a bandit named Moulin Rouge has been saying she’s a part of Fairy Tail and stealing stuff. Erza swears to bring her to justice…as soon as she gets some cake. That’s Erza for you!

So she runs into Moulin Rouge in the sweets shop and takes one of the workers’ uniform to try and sneak up on her. Of course she doesn’t though.

Snapshot_18

This is Fairy Tail. Save the sublety and hiding for Part 1 of Naruto(Part 2 is more massive explosion than clever hiding)

Anyway Erza gets into a fight with Moulin Rouge and of course she owns her.

Turns out her friend needs medicine and she was just stealing to help them. She needs work and food since she’s a new immigrant to this country.

Snapshot_14

Erza doesn’t give a damn! Impersonating a member of Fairy Tail is a serious crime. Check out what Natsu did to Bora in the first episode of the original series if you want to know.

Anyway after beating her down, Erza offers her work at Fairy Tail which she takes up.

After which the flashback ends and Bisca, Alzack, and Asuka return from a mission. It turns out that Moulin Rouge was Bisca when she was younger. Fairy Tail took her in and gave her a home.

Now I know a lot of people rag on Fairy Tail being too Power of Friendship heavy but you can’t ever say that they don’t create a family atmosphere.

So the episode ends with Bisca and Erza about to play another game of pool.

So this episode isn’t all that good. Not all good but not bad either. I’m giving Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 28 an 6/10. It does good with the fanservice and explaining the past of a minor character but it doesn’t have that key factor that makes it a really good episode.

So now that this episode is over. We get into the good stuff. The filler arc! The real one and not these one shots. Pity. I really wanted them to adapt 419 Days mostly because a whole of Juvia x Gray shipping goes down as well as Gajeel x Levy shipping.

But tragically I’ll have to wait. It seems that this one is focusing on the Celestial Spirits so it looks like Yukino will return. Good I always liked her.

Also once the Grand Magic Games Arc ended, the ending animation changed. I’m happy for it because the first ending was depressing. All it was seeing what happened to Future Lucy after she died. While it was happy in a way, it’s still sad.

So now the new episode is a pan up of a character(of course female) in their pajamas. Hmmm seems like they used a lot of the budget and couldn’t get creative. Despite that I like it. I’ll start showing you those in this review.

First one was Lucy of course. Then Wendy. Finally it was Erza in this episode.

Strangely it’s kinda relaxing. It makes me want to go to sleep and relax. Maybe it’s May J.’s song and the characters in pajamas? Who knows.

So that’s all for this review.
Until the next episode,
Later Days

You can ask me as many questions as you want on Ask.fm and you can follow me on Twitter to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll know when stuff comes out right when it does! 🙂

Also check out my right hand man, SkyCorps on AnimeWithSky where I’m also a writer. We’ve got some good reviews from all the writers, Speculations, Light Novel Reviews, and Manga Chapters Reviews. What are you waiting for? Come and check us out! You won’t regret it!

Let’s Look: Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 27: Rogue, I Think Your Cat’s Stupid.

I have to say I’m liking these fillers. Props to Hiro Mashima for making the source material and props to Studio Satelight for adapting it.

So we start off this episode with Lector and Frosch, the Exceeds from Sabertooth. Apparently Lector’s looking for a new vest to buy.

Relax man. You’re a cat. No one’s paying attention to your fashion choices.

So while Lector’s being a slave to fashion, Frosch disappears into the crowd. Noo!

So after the opening, we hear the people of the town say how much warmer and nice the Sabertooth mages are after Sting became the guild master.

Snapshot_3 Snapshot_4

He’s taken up the will of Gemma!

Snapshot_5

Oh it’s a pool! Yay! Swim time and it’s time to see Yukino in a bikini!

So the Sabertooth mages comment that they must be the only guild that has a swimming pool in their guild hall…

Well…

 

Darn and they only got theirs finished seven years ago.

So everyone’s having fun. Sting’s splashing everyone. Orga and Rufus are chilling with some floaties. Then Lector comes in and explains what happened.

Of course Rogue goes off. Calm down dude. It’s not Lector’s fault your cat has the attention span of a goldfish.

So it’s time to go looking for Frosch!

Snapshot_10 Snapshot_11

So after a bit of looking they run into Gajeel and Pantherlily. Rogue goes crazy again and gets all aggressive with Gajeel asking if he’s seen Frocsh.

Snapshot_12

Ummm…dude you do remember the last time you fought him right. It ended with an Iron Shadow Dragon’s Roar to the face.

So after Sting reins in Rogue, Pantherlily tells them that they saw Frocsh ten minutes ago in the park.

So they rush over there and find Wendy and Carla but no Frosch…

Turns out Wendy’s in town buying a swimsuit. But it’s too big for her and she says that she can’t fill it out. Poor Wendy. It’s tough being the token Loli but hey every anime needs one.

Snapshot_13

So Rogue gets all up in her face too.

Snapshot_14 Snapshot_15

So Sting sends him flying into a post while Yukino explains the situation and Carla points them down the street where they last saw Frocsh.

Here we go again.

But before we go, Lector totally hits on Carla.

Snapshot_16

And something funny happens.

Snapshot_17

He sensed a disturbance in the Love Force!

So after they run into Ichiya of Blue Pegasus…and isn’t much help…in fact…well… see for yourselves.

Snapshot_19

AAAAAHH! MY EYES! MY EYES! What the hell man?!

Snapshot_18 Snapshot_20

Anyway they manage to run into Frocsh who’s staring at a map. Apparently he’s trying to get home by himself…Let’s look to Sting and Lector on how likely that is.

Snapshot_24

They know the cat’s stupid too.

Anyway Rogue makes them wait…in his own way.

And Sting gets all mad. And thus Sting x Yukino and Rogue x Yukino was born!

So they let Frosch try to find his way back by himself. Of course he gets distrcted by a butterfly and nearly hit by a horse carriage.

As they follow Frosch they run into Kagura and Millianna who both want to take Frosch home. Millianna just loves cats and apparently Kagura just likes cute things…or frogs…one of the two. She’s a weird young woman.

Snapshot_25

So while they start arguing Frocsh runs off and runs into some frog traders. Wait Frog traders? That’s a thing? Anyway they can’t catch him because either Frosch is too fast or they’re stupid. Then Natsu, Happy, and Lucy show up and help out.

So next Frocsh runs into Juvia and Grey.

Yay Juvia and Grey together. More likely that they’ll be together!

Snapshot_31

Anyway after Frosch starts to cry, Grey and Juvia offer to walk him back to the guild hall but Frosch says no since he’s a member of Sabertooth he’ll make his own way home. He doesn’t want to keep depending on his friends. Aww that’s nice. But look at this.

Snapshot_32

See clothes

Snapshot_33

No clothes and it was like a second he was off camera! How fast of a stripper is Gray!?

Anyway Frosch continues on with Sting, Rogue, Yukino, and Lector watching until Frosch meets Erza. Frosch shows her the present he…she…I don’t know what Frosch is. I want to say that he’s a guy but I’m not sure.

Anyway he wants to show her the present he got for Rogue.

Snapshot_34

Hahahah are you going to wear it Rogue!

Anyway after that Frocsh asks for directions and after walking for hours. He makes it to…the Fairy Tail Guild Hall! It’s a completely different city!

And that ends episode 27.

If you’re looking for deep emotional stuff or action, don’t come here.

It was definitely all comedy and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Side Note:Rogue I suggest a new Exceed. Your current one needs to get a brain.

Anyway I give this episode 8/10 for good comedy and good art. It’s always good to see a new side to characters and we get that here with the Sabertooth guys and one girl.

So the next one is called Moulin Rouge. And it turns out that Moulin Rouge is a current member of Fairy Tail. Wanna know who it is? Check it out next week.

Also I’m loving the fact that Hiro Mashima is one of the hardest working guys in Manga. He’s made a massive amount of omake chapters for the anime to adapt while the manga gets more distance on it. My favorites out of this omakes would have to be ‘A Day with Asuka’ and ‘418 Days’. Mostly 418 Days because it’s all Juvia centric and the shipping is in full force!

So I’m guessing that it’s going to be Moulin Rouge, then A Day with Asuka and then 418 Days.

So that’s all I have for this review,
Until the Next Review,
Later Days

Let’s Look: Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 26:Even Moles Love Lucy and Zeref vs. Mavis

Let’s Look: Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 26:Even Moles Love Lucy and Zeref vs. Mavis

I knew Lucy’s sexiness was universal but I didn’t know it crossed species? Also Zeref just threw down the gauntlet and Mavis just said bring it! The battle between Fairies and Demons is about to begin…in one month

Once again heroically double posting. Do I really need to say this? I’ve already done a few posts on AnimeWithSky…Yeah I need to do this until I can finally get an update post out. And with my backlog it will take a few days…

So anyway Episode 26 of Fairy Tail 2nd Series is called ‘Present’.

So now those epically cool mages of Fairy Tail have returned back to Magnolia and greeted by the entirety of the city. Everyone’s living it up and celebrating save one person.

Snapshot_1

He still remembers what happened when he saw Old Ultear. I still can’t get over it myself. See Ultear was only max in her mid to late twenties. She was still in the prime of her life. Now she has to spend her last days watching all her friends live on. Sure she doesn’t have any regrets but imagine if this was forced on her. The despair would be overwhelming.

On that note Juvia notices that Gray is feeling down and tells him that it’s rude for him to have such a sad look on his face while everyone else is so happy. So Gray puts a smile for her.

Now stuff like this is what makes me think that Gray x Juvia or commonly referred to as Gruvia will be a thing. Out of all the people in the entire crowd, Juvia was the only one to notice that Gray was sad. Now if that wasn’t love or future wife material I don’t know what is.

But getting anyway from the sad parts and to the comedy, so Natsu digs around in his backpack and pulls out this.

Snapshot_2

He stole the King of Fiore’s crown! He stole the crown….

Then he just puts it back in his pack. Apparently he grabbed the wrong thing. Dude you just stole the freaking crown and now you’re just casually putting it back like a trinket.

Snapshot_3

Wow the trophy is nice! Still stole a freaking crown! Return it man!

Note: We never see Natsu return it, someone come and get back it, him mail it, or anything. It’s safe to assume that he kept it….What the hell?!

So after that everyone just crying because they finally won but the greatest comedy comes from Makarov. Turns out that townspeople fixed up the guild and payed off their debt! Yay

Snapshot_4

It’s okay man. Let it out. I will too. Hahahahhaa oh the pain and the comedy. I love this anime!

But after this we see this little thing.

Snapshot_5

Obra’s Imp? What it doing here?

So at this point I’m at a crossroads. I can continue the review in a linear fashion, reporting things as they happened or break it up into the filler and the canon stuff. I’ll do the second.

So the little imp runs out of the town and into the forest where he goes up to a certain person…

Snapshot_6

It’s freaking Zeref, the Black Mage! Run! Run! Those of you with weak constitutions may want to leave the review.

Just joking with that last part.

So Mavis appears, you see her walking to this little glade in the middle of the filler, and she starts to talk with Zeref.

Now note while this sounds like a conversation, it isn’t. Zeref can’t see or hear Mavis at all because he lacks a Fairy Tail guild mark. However he can sense her. And this is what surprises you if you really think about it. Mavis asks questions and Zeref’s responses sound like logical answers to her questions. But once again Zeref can’t hear her so that means that he know hers that well where he can anticipate her answers perfectly.

Damn that’s good.

So after experiencing the world for seven years, what do you want to do now, Zeref?

Wow, whenever Zeref appears things get real! I love this dude! Humans keep making the same mistakes over and over again. To someone 400 years old like Zeref, it must be like a parent that watches their kid do the same dumb stuff again and again. Now this parent wants to cut us off…permenantly!

Scary, right.

What’s Mavis’s response?

Snapshot_9

Oh Zeref throws down the gauntlet and Mavis accepts the challenge! I can’t wait for the epicness!

Wow just the epicness. Now back to the filler.

It’s pretty simple. Natsu, Lucy, and Happy go on a job to stop a mole that’s terrorizing a town. They can’t beat it because it keeps ducking underground. Erza, Gray, and Wendy show up. They help out and the day is saved. All in all, very simple and overwhelmingly boring.

I’m not going to go in depth with it because in a lot of Fairy Tail filler this isn’t good stuff. So I’ll just do a pic spam of moments.

There is some funny stuff in there. Turns out that the mole is looking for a mate so he goes after Lucy. Erza asks since she’s a young attractive woman(yes she is! Thanks Mashima for making her so hot and that’s Sayaka Oohara for giving her a sexy voice) why isn’t it going after her.

Snapshot_10

Hahaha. Still insanely hot.

Then Wendy asks the same question….

Snapshot_11

Hahahah oh god the pain and laughs! It hurts!

Snapshot_12

It’s okay Wendy. Remember your Edolas self. She had huge boobs. Maybe you’ll grow up to be like her. Who know? Every manga and anime needs the token loli for the perverts to drool over and for the normal people to ‘aww’ at their cuteness.

Okay now Picture Spam go!

And that’s it for the Episode.

Now I believe it’s been announced that this entire month will be filler to give the anime some more distance between the manga. I like a lot of Fairy Tail’s filler mostly because it isn’t technically filler.

Most of what the Fairy Tail anime adapts into filler is Hiro Mashima’s omake chapters. And that guy pumps them out. So there’s rarely something that goes up in the filler part that’s not canon in someway. The next episode is in fact canon that happened right after the Grand Magic Games with Sabertooth and how they’re rebuilting themselves. But of course they’re got to be some shipping there too. There’s some Gray x Juvia shipping and some of my favorite Sting x Yukino and Rogue x Yukino shipping. Poor Yukino. Stuck in an entire guild of guys.

Anyway that’s enough of me rambling. So the next episode is Welcome Home, Frosh. I personally can’t wait for it. It’s chance to see the new Sabertooth.

So until next week,
Later Days

Let’s Look: Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 25: A Witch’s Sin is Finally Forgiven

Oh Ultear. Oh Gray. They suffer so much in this anime.

So this is my first double post on AnimeThief and AnimeWithSky. I’m going to love this so much!

Side Note: Since I’m on two blogs now, I’m going to mix in more pictures with my normal Fairy Tail reviews. It makes it more interesting and fits in more here

Episode 25 of Fairy Tail 2nd Series is called ‘Drop of Time’.

This episode is all about things returning to normal after the attack of the dragons. Except one thing.

Snapshot_1

Who is this?

So as we go through the episode first we see that the pace is really slow but it’s not bad slow. It’s good slow. It’s relaxing.

The members of Fairy Tail start heading back to Magnolia while Jellal and Merudy start leaving Crocus.

Now on the Jellal and Merudy side, they search the wrekage of Crocus for Ultear until Doranbolt comes along to fill them in on the situation.

So turns out that Doranbolt modified the memories of all the members of the Magic Council including Lahar so they wouldn’t go after the Royal Family. After all the Royal Family used magic from the Book of Zeref so that would make a major problem in the entire country of Fiore. So it’s best that it stays in the shadows

So after that and this is my favorite part. Cobra returns to prison without a fight but not before saying a few choice things. One, he heard the voice of Cubellios(Kinana). Aw now if you watched the Key of the Starry Night filler arc(which is actually canon) then you know there’s a fair bit of Cobra x Kinana shipping…

Anyway the big thing is that…well let Cobra tell you.

Snapshot_8

Now I didn’t know this when I downloaded but it’s a suckish translation. Gates of the Underworld should be translated as Gates of Tartarus As in Tartarus, the third part of the Balam Alliance, the only one that hasn’t been taken out yet.

They’re about to make their move!

Now since I’m on AnimeWithSky with this post I can’t really go off on a long tangent but I’ll do a quick one.

So if Cobra heard this while he was fighting that means that a member or members of Tartarus was there during the Grand Magic Games. The only reason that I can think of is that they wanted something…or someone. The only question is did they get it?

For those answers we’ll have to wait until the Tartarus arc begins.

So back to Fairy Tail, they’re in a carriage heading back to Magnolia, relaxing. Erza’s drawing a custom armor(very badly), Natsu’s about to barf, and Lucy and Happy are laughing. However Gray’s just looking out the window. He can’t get that vision of dying out of his head.

He tells Wendy what happened with Ul and the feeling he felt after the fight with the dragons.

Snapshot_10

So after that we go back to Jellal and Merudy leaving Crocus and passing an old woman on the road who gives them a letter from Ultear.

Snapshot_11

Now if you’re not well versed in Seiyuu, the old lady is Ultear. Turns out Last Ages aged her down to her last few days alive.

You can even tell at the beginning of the episode when she talks. Miyuki Sawashiro doesn’t really lower her voice at all. She just elongates her words to make her sound a bit older.

As Merudy finishes reading the letter, she cries and Old Ultear disappears as Jellal looks back. Old Ultear walks for a bit until she passes the carriage with Natsu, Gray, Erza, Wendy, and Lucy in it. As Gray looks out of the window he sees Ultear and recognizes her.

As he asks for the carriage to stop, Ultear nods no. She’s had her time. Her part in this battle and in this life is over.

The episode ends with Ultear looking up at the sky, being bathed in the sunlight, saying finally she’s forgiven herself for the things she’s done.

Now this is just the feels episode of Fairy Tail and I’m giving it a 9/10 just for that.

Now the episode is epically awesome but bad because according to Hiro Mashima’s twitter, the entire month of October for the Fairy Tail anime will be filler so to give the manga a chance to get some more distance.

Aww man. I really want to see the Sun Village arc and the Tartorus arcs get animated.

I guess I have to wait.

And you will need to do until next week with Fairy Tail Episode 26, Present.

Until next week,
Later Days

You can ask me as many questions as you want on Ask.fm and you can follow me on Twitter to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll also be update on what’s happening.

Let’s Look:Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episodes 21 & 22 Double Super Mini Reviews:Death of Grey and Ultear

Need to do a double just to catch up with Fairy Tail. Positive side, I just marathoned Rio:Rainbow Gate and OniAi.

Noooooo! Don’t kill off Ultear! Ah Miyuki Sawashiro! I guess it’s okay since I see her as Sinon in Sword Art Online II

Episode 21 of Fairy Tail 2nd Series is called ‘Sin and Sacrifice’. Millianna, Erza’s friend with the cat theme and the stripper/dominatrix theme, confronts Jellal for trapping them in the Tower of Heaven or Tower of Paradise depends on what translation you started with. Then again you could call Jellal Gerard if you have one of those weird translators at the beginning. Also he killed that dude that was Kagura’s brother…Simon I think. Anyway before Jellal tries to take responsibility for his actions but Ultear explains how she manipulated Jellal for her purposes. She tells Millianna to get into the battle and they’d settle their score if they were still alive. Then we see a sight of Kagura resheathing Archenemy as she hears this. Maybe she’s letting her grudge go?

After this Ultear has a flashback where she was about to kill Rogue but then Sting arrives to help our Shadow Dragon Slayer. This makes Rogue remember that even he falls to the darkness he’ll be purified by the light.

This makes Ultear see that she was wrong and she truly hasn’t changed from the person she used to be if she wanted to kill an innocent person so easily.

We get some boring filler about the guild’s fighting the mini dragons but you don’t care about that. You care about the good stuff.

So we go to Gray, Juvia, and Merudy where they’re fighting off some mini dragons. They dodge the first few but when another wave comes up Gray pushes Juvia out of the way, saving her life but dying in the process.

Episode 22 of Fairy Tail 2nd Series is called ‘Time of Life’. Many wizards are killed by the dragons such as Bacchus of Cuatro Cerberus, Droy, Macao, and Wakaba of Fairy Tail as well as some members fighting the full sized such as Lucy, Gajeel, Laxus, and Wendy. As Ultear sits in the courtyard, she remembers her time as a member of Grimoire Heart where she learned of the spell, Last Ages. It’s a spell which in exchange for one’s entire life they can turn back time.

Ultear uses this spell but is only able to turn back time one minute. Now I know this is rather dark but in the original manga this part was tragically funny. One because Ultear’s reaction. Now here in the anime, you’ve got the sad music, Miyuki Sawashiro’s low sensual serious voice, and you see all the pain that Ultear’s going through. I mean in the manga you see that’s her skin’s burned up but her you actually see it.

Anyway Ultear dies thinking she was unable to save anyone. However she was able to save so many of the wizards fighting against the dragons including Gray as well as giving all the wizards a fighting chance against the dragons.

After basically running for two episodes(I assume those huge boobs slowed her down) Lucy finally reaches the palace and explains that if the Eclispe Gate is destroyed in their time it will send the dragons and Future Rogue back to their own times saving the world.

And here we go for the scores. Two good episodes in my opinion.

Scores:
1.For Episode 21, it gets a 7/10 for good art and a big twist at the Grey death. However it loses out for all those fillers with the guild wizards. Have some filler with the actual dragons.
2.For Episode 22, it gets a 8/10 solely for Ultear’s sacrifice as well as some greatly done art.

And with that I’m finally caught up with my reviews. Finally! I’m going to drop a really important post soon. Probably right after this one. Make sure to keep your eyes open for it!

 

Glasslip Dropped!

Yeah I’m dropping Glasslip. I thought that PA Works was on to something with this but then they ended up screwing up a good thing. How? They did nothing with it! They had a cast of teenagers on their last year of high school in their final summer and what do they do with it? They don’t use any of the possible drama they could be doing!

They also jumped into the dating parts too early. It’s the second or the third episode and Yukinari’s already confessing to Touko. It’s so dumb. I’m not going to care if this dude is confessing to this girl if you haven’t built up anything to make me care about either of them.

Also the main guy, Kakeru Okikura, is a bastard with a massive addition of jackass anti-social. It’s like the guy doesn’t know how to talk to people. He’s just too cold and off putting for everything.

So that’s just a few of the reasons why I don’t like Glasslip and that’s why I’m dropping with no chance of it ever having a Full Review. PA Works did what a lot of people feared. Awesome art but horrible plot. If I wanted a snorefest episodic, I’d watch an American cartoon.

Granted the character designs and the environment are really good though. Yanagi is definitely the hottest girl on the anime but it isn’t going to save it. Despite that I’ll leave you with some pictures.

Here you go!

And with that Glasslip is officially dropped. Now since my side list isn’t up yet, this season I’ll only be reviewing Rail Wars and Fairy Tail 2nd Series. However in the fall season, the Side List will be up and I’ll have anime on there for it.

You can ask me as many questions as you want on Ask.fm and you can follow me on Twitter to know when my new reviews are coming out. You’ll also be update on what’s happening.
