My Burrito Review of Fairy Tail
My Burrito Review of Fairy Tail

Welcome to the Fairy Tail review! I'm Takashichea (Taka for short) who is a big Fairy Tail fan and wiki editor. There are so much content in Fairy Tail, so I decide to review the last parts of Fairy Tail because it's fresh in my head. Since this review is for the Anime Vice's Write A Review & You Could Win A Copy of FAIRY TAIL! contest, I have to set it up like a burrito.

See Link to the Fairy Tail Facebook page!

Spicy!

Some of these ingredients are fantastic, and these make Fairy Tail enjoyable. The unique part about Fairy Tail's Time Skip was that it did a 7 years skip, but the main characters along with a few supporting characters didn't age. Compared to Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece, everyone had aged. The Grand Magic Games/ Tournament arc in Fairy Tail may seem a cliche arc you see in most Battle Shonen series. For Fairy Tail, it had build up the characters to this point where you want to root for your favorites and new characters. For the filler arc, it's has some good parts and bad. Overall, it wasn't exciting as the tournament arc. When you hit the filler arc, you may skip it or not. If you eat a breakfast burrito each day, you might get bored of it. That's how I personally felt with the filler arc.

Story and Characters

Ravages of Time and Old Wounds
Ravages of Time and Old Wounds

The Key of the Starry Sky filler arc is an extension of Lucy Heartfilia who suffers from the ravages of time. Even though she still has her guild as a secondary family, she lost her father. She regrets not spending the time with her father who was worried about her those seven years. Because of the Phantom arc, Lucy had distance herself from her father. It was tear jerking to see her story with her father reach closure. The rest of the gang didn't have a lot of issues with the time skip like how Lucy did. Later in the Grand Magic Game, Erza encounters her past when Jellal and Millianna come into play. That makes the story in Fairy Tail come full circle. These past arcs still have their roots embedded.

Random Funny Moments + Shipping
Random Funny Moments + Shipping

For the characters, their fight and struggles are what gets the audience revved up. Lucy's fight with Flare just makes you want Fairy Tail to win. Natsu's and the guild's drive to back up Lucy makes you feel you're part the experience. Even though the friendship theme is a bit overwhelming, Natsu's speech manages to stir me up. With the action and drama, Fairy Tail's comedic scenes are often warm and enjoyable. Happy's scene of Lucy's sex appeal finally working or Mirajane vs Jenny's cosplay fight were great and memorable. Some of the humor comes from shipping characters make some scenes irresistible like Erza and Jellal's scenes by the beach. The fans loves this part of Fairy Tail, the silly romance we make it up in our heads.

The flavor of this series' burrito is memorable. You can't forget these characters and their stories.

Just Needs More Seasoning or Flavor

Music

Personally, the music in Fairy Tail wasn't memorable. I sometimes hum different anime songs along with other music at random points in the day. I don't really hum the Fairy Tail theme songs. It's not that I hate Fairy Tail songs. It's a bit average.

Animation

I don't know if it's my eyes or Crunchyroll. That's the legal streaming site I use predominantly for Fairy Tail until Crunchyroll remove the episodes later on. I feel the animation was sharper and crisp in the Tenrou Island arc. For the animation in the Starry Sky arc and Grand Magic Games, the animation looks blurry. Close up of characters look fine, but shots of characters in the middle ground are pretty blurred. The animation in the fight scenes are lower than ones you see in Kill la Kill and other anime series that are produced by companies like Production I.G, Inc.

Bitter!

Big Butt Gang - Hit or Miss. Wendy look good
Big Butt Gang - Hit or Miss. Wendy look good

Everyone might run into a bad burrito or ate a stale burrito. There are some stale parts in Fairy Tail's last arc or some times there is an odd combination of flavors.

  • Big Butt Gang - This group is from Hiro Mashima's old work, Rave Master. There is a hit or miss with this group. Personally, I find them annoying. While it's funny to see Erza, Wendy, and Carla wearing these outfits, the Big Butt Gang can be gross. The Big Butt Gang can be an odd flavor that's out of place like anchovies. You don't see anchovies in burritos.
  • Overuse of Friendship - This is part of eating the same burrito gets boring. Fairy Tail solves its serious fights with friendship often. For children, it's a good theme to reinforce. For the adults, you get tired of it.
  • Being a filler arc, the Key of the Starry Sky arc does a lot of padding and set ups for the next fight. You find yourself wanting to get this done. Some of the plot seems predictable like Michelle's identity coming out. When Lucy has a late epiphany that to resolve means defeating Oracion Seis. That's pretty predictable. Fairy Tail solves everything by punching in the face.
  • Tournament arc had a slow start and short matches. Some folks love short battles compared to some Shonen series that are known for ridiculous long battles. For Fairy Tail, these matches that pit your favorite character against another. You want it to be satisfying. Some fights like Wendy vs Chelia are stalled. I remember most of the fight began in the next episode.

Tortilla - End

The Tortilla part in the burrito is what holds the ingredients together. Fairy Tail did a decent job for its last arc back in 2013. It's coming back from a year break starting this spring 2014 season. The story does get stale and look like its running out of ideas, but it keeps you going with its characters and their zany adventures. Fans will look forward to Fairy Tail. Newcomers will enjoy Fairy Tail if they like the simplistic characters, a bit of fan service, and light hearted fun.

Welcome to the Weekly Fairy Tail report! I'm Taka, and I'm glad to be with you guys and gals as we cover the 9th episode of the Key of the Starry Sky arc.

Plot

When Dan and Natsu crash into the chapel, Happy and Michelle has a plan to use Lucy as a decoy. Meanwhile, Erza and the gang meet the Big Butt Bandits where Wendy and Erza dons the bandits' trademark black, spandex suits. What in god's name is wrong with this episode?! Will Natsu and Erza's company beat their enemies?

Verdict

Good

Charle's nightmare is cute
Charle's nightmare is cute
  • For the first time, Lucy's sex appeal actually works. I love how Happy cried at that moment even though Lucy used her seductive charms on the wrong men who have different taste.
  • Speaking of Happy, Charle's nightmare is hilarious. She just scream which is out of character, but I enjoyed so well. An army of big booty Wendy in tight, black spandex is chasing Charle is a great scene.
  • I can't talk about Erza's scene yet. It's pretty great.

Bad

  • I find the scene with the Big Butt Bandits and Erza's group confusing. I don't know why Erza fools around with them and asks them silly questions instead of kicking their butts. It's a pretty boring scene until Wonderful Gocche pulls out a sneaky attack on Erza.

WTF Moment

I copy this element from FoxxFireArt's reviews just to change things for a little bit.

Erza gets a Point Blank Ecstasy
Erza gets a Point Blank Ecstasy
  • When Wonderful Gocche jumps in front of Erza with his behind pointing at her and unleashes a Point Blank Ecstasy attack, I felt bad for her. Plus, I can't believe I laugh at such a nasty scene.

Overall, the episode is good, but the Big Butt Bandits scene might be a hit or miss with the fans. In the next episode, Pantherlily takes on Samuel who has a second form like him. I feel psyched for next week's episode.

Plot

Hello everyone and welcome to the weekly Fairy Tail report. We're still in the filler arc as team Fairy Tail hunting down the 4 remaining keys. Let's go over this week's episode.

Under the desert sands, Natsu and his gang confront Dan Straight and Coco. While Natsu fights Dan, Lucy and her group search for the clock piece after Lucy helps Coco. Meanwhile, Gajeel's group arrives to the top of the mountain, and Erza's group finds a magical library where Erza finds a jiggly butt.

Verdict

Good

Dan's Dream Wedding with Lucy
Dan's Dream Wedding with Lucy
  • Dan Straight displays his love and creepy obsession over Lucy once Lucy shrunk. She looked awfully cute as Dan's strap.
  • Happy gets into trouble a lot as he steps on his friends like Natsu. Only this time, Happy is big.
  • Coco and Lucy: The scenes of Lucy helping Coco show how Lucy has a heart of gold. Lucy fans would love this episode.

Bad

  • Hit or Miss: Not much action in this episode as Dan and Natsu's fight is barely started. For this filler arc, the emphasis is more on fan service and humor.

Bizarre

Erza's wearing the jumpsuit?!
Erza's wearing the jumpsuit?!
  • They're back:The Big Bandits make a second appearance. I see Erza and Wendy wearing their black jump suits in the episode preview.
  • Dan Straight does not like to take off his armor even though Romeo filled his armor with stinky gas. How does Dan take a bath or go relieve himself?
  • Bad Luck Lucy: I thought it was Natsu who getting his team into traps, but it's more of Lucy's fault.

Overall, this episode is not that bad. It's funny enough that it won't bore you guys and gals.

Overview

Welcome to the weekly Fairy Tail report! I'm Taka, an avid Fairy Tail fan and part of the wiki editing coalition here on Anime Vice. Last week, we had our first filler episode to cushion the story before it reaches the manga's storyline. This week, we have an episode with a bit of a Rave Master influence. Sadly, Haru and the gang are not here for total crossover. No, we get a visit from the Jiggle Butt Gang. Prepare yourselves for this crazy yet disgusting episode.

Check out episode 126's The Truly Evil Jiggle Butt Gang's Image Gallery!

Plot

Wendy and her group take up a job to guard a freight cart of gold as it reaches its destination. When the Jiggle Butt Gang arrives and takes Wendy hostage and control of the situation, Lucy and her group are booted off the train; Natsu is incapacitated due to motion sickness. It is up to Wendy to save the day.

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Wendy got some lackeys of her own
Wendy got some lackeys of her own
  • Wendy gets the spotlight in this filler for the second time. Even though she didn't beat up the bad guys, she got her own lackeys.
  • Despite how nasty the jiggle butt gang and their farts, I got a few laughs about their stupidity.
  • True to Their Roots: The bandits still love Plue and will not change their life of crime. For you Rave Master fans, I recall the bandits almost gave up a life of crime to be with some rich ladies. However, they didn't do it. With Wendy, they are still thieves.

Bad

Ew!
Ew!
  • The butts are nauseating to look at and hard to avoid.
  • Many fans call this episode the worst one in the whole series. I agree with them.

Bizarre

Wendy is so adorable!
Wendy is so adorable!
  • I wonder why Wendy can't wake up Natsu or drop him off outside or why can't Wendy take out the bandits. I can't blame Wendy because she's a total softie.
  • I love Wendy's facial expression when she wore that Jiggle Butt Bandit's outfit.
  • Wendy is the official Fairy Tail recruit officer, and I have no idea where she pull out the Fairy Tail guild brochure.

Overall, this episode is hit or miss with the fans. I kept watching it because of Wendy. I just close my eyes every time those bandits farted.
