Well, I guess Ultear is dead. It has been a while since they killed off someone permanently. I wonder if Gray, Meldy, and Jellal will find out after this event is over. It was a good episode a bit stalled.
@takashichea: This is a solid case of yes ,no, maybe! OK so she does the legendary magic an it cost her life. But if they destroy the time portal that resets every thing but would it reset her death to? I expect buildings etc to be fixed an some having knowlege of the event but few long term problems.
Its a time paradox story now. The past affects the future. So no door they can not come back threw an al the damage they did should be undone. If she comes back its because of that paradox. Years of watching Dr Who pay off !
The arc is finally over. It was pretty long and had some good moments and some bad ones.
Best Fights and Moments
I actually had a ton more. I guess I should list the bad ones instead.
Just finished season 2 episode 23. @takashichea: What strikes me the most is the change in illustration style kinda did blunt some of the heart tug scenes. For their 1st arc they did good but its not the same in some respects. Tho the same use of music an direction felt the same.
The time paradox stuff at the later half of the arc does not play as well. The whole arc felt like it was one harder fight after another. An the time aspects of that second half does not make sense. Not only should the the dragons have gone back but the world should have reset. But its a minor flaw in a world of magic at best. Tho as slowly as things reset its possible things will shift back to a point. an the one who sacrificed he life for time could come back.
I forgot to mention the animation style. I got used to it now. I do understand where you coming from about the time confusion. This whole arc was like Fighting Festival and Edolas combined. Got fans excited for some awesome fights and then, long dredge through slow stuff.
