It’s difficult for me to bid Fairy Tail a fond goodbye, given how much it has offended my sensibilities as it wore on, and how much I’ve crapped on it as a result of my annoyance at the series. But it has entertained me in its earlier arcs, and I’ve based my best fanfiction on its world.
So I’ll try to be more objective and push aside my grievances a little as I ramble on about the series that had sort of taken the place of Naruto as one of the big three manga for me.
Another good one bites the dust. But at least this one didn’t end in a confusing, shortened mess that didn’t address any of the gaping plot holes or creating fanfiction pairings a la Harry Potter.
I’m looking at you, Bleach.
I haven’t had a good rant about Fairy Tail in a while, mainly because it’s not worth a lengthy whine in a blog post. But this…this is stupid. This is a level of stupid that makes me struggle to think of anything more stupid.
And so another giant says goodbye.
The genre of ‘stuck in an MMO’ has really taken off in the past few years. Sword Art Online, Overlord, Log Horizon (which I have yet to watch) and now The New Gate.
I don’t usually care for rom-coms, and Nisekoi was a stereotypical rom-com harem manga where we have a boy with a crush on a girl and vice versa, but with neither realising each other’s feelings. A whole cast of females fall in love with our oblivious male protagonist, and they go off on their adventures in high school trying to figure relationships out while trying to remember some promise from years ago.
If there’s one chapter in Fairy Tail that can get me to quit reading it, this is the one.
Well, that was a bit of an anticlimactic ending. Nagisa’s way of subduing that unruly student looked really odd, not to mention the art seems to have declined in quality a little.
The series is seriously meh right now, but I have to give them props for their pretty decent weapon design. Well, at least for season 1. Season 2 was just guns and Kirito being an OP protagonist bringing a sword to a gun fight and winning.
Never actually realised Asuna’s rapier isn’t really a rapier though. Anime is anime…
