Cobra News

Cobra is a anime/manga character in the Fairy Tail franchise
| |

I spent an irritating Tuesday and Wednesday anticipating a new fairy tail chapter because of last week’s late/early release. Sufficing to say it didn’t come, which was disappointing and when it finally came on Friday, it wasn’t as good as i expected, or at least as good as last week’s chapter, which might have had that level of impact because it literally came out of the blue, catching me off guard.

THE PLOT:>

Last week we found out quite a number of things. First Rogue lied just a bit. Ten thousand dragons did not come through the gate and take over the world. It was one dragon that contended with and

eventually subjugated humanity, and that was Achnologia. With his power alone, he brought the world to its knees. Rogue at first comes off as logical and innocent, claiming that he wished to unleash ten thousand dragons to use as tools to combat the achnologia. Then he reveals that his intention isn’t as much to save humanity as it is to rule over them in Achnologia’s place. Natsu quickly puts a stop to his rumblings by nearly taking his dragon, mother glare, down.

Natsu then reveals what we all knew, that only dragon slayers could defeat the dragons and this is qualified when Makarov, even with his giant magic, is incapable of doing anything more than getting burnt when he tries to take on atlas flame. With Laxus, Natsu, Gajeel, Wendy, Rogue and sting, that makes six dragon slayers against seven dragons. But we quickly learn of the favor that Jellal asked of the two council members, which is to free cobra, the poison dragon slayer from his incarceration, to join the battle.

We also learn that Rogue and sting did indeed lie about killing their dragons, though that was kind of obvious since they would have been way too young to execute such a significant task. it turns out that their dragons were reaching the end of their lives and asked the pair to kill them, apparently because bathing in the blood of a dragon grants one great power. So far that doesn’t seem to be the case.

In this chapter, the fight has finally began. Laxus takes on Atlas flame in Makarov’s place, then sending Gajeel to find himself a dragon to slay. Pegasus blue try and fail at beating the their enemy and it falls to cobra to save them. Rogue and Natsu’s battle is about to commence, but before that, Rogue has the dragon unleash a myriad of eggs each of which hatch into little dragon like monsters.

At the gate, Zirconis makes his move, first ‘incapacitating’ the king’s army and then Lucy, before coming face to face with Wendy. All in all a set up chapter.

MY REVIEW:>

I loved chapter 329, mostly because of that huge bomb shell that not only would we be seeing Achnologia again (soon in fact) but that it alone had the power to subjugate the entire human race. That revelation made Rogue’s actions so much more sane and logical, in contrast to the slayers. Well, they do have to stop him, but i wonder if they have thought about what happens after. They will obviously need the seven dragons to achieve victory, especially if you consider that in the original timeline, seven dragon slayers couldn’t stop Achnologia. They should probably focus on trying to free and refocus the fury of the dragons towards their looming enemy.

Either way, things just got better for fairy tail’s future, because we now know why Zeref, in the last arc, spoke of the ending of an age with the coming of Achnologia who, besides annihilating the island, simply flew away. I guess he could foresee the consequences to come, that Achnologia would return to rule the world.

This recent chapter,330, wasn’t the most exciting.It was mostly set up with the dragon slayers pairing with their dragons. Next week will be Wendy Vs. Zirconis.

I don’t see her beating the dragon, she could barely stand against Chelia and her god slaying magic and back then she was coming at her with a whole new set of moves. Now, so soon after the tournament i don’t expect her to win this; but we all know that she will and it is up to Hiro to make this look good. I DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT WANT TO SEE NAKAMA POWER PREVAIL AGAIN. Hiro needs to make this look good and convincing because i don’t see Wendy winning this even if it is merely Zirconis and it will be his job to make me believe that it is possible.

I see what Hiro is trying to do with the little dragon monsters, which is simply trying to give the other mages something to do while the slayers do there thing. It isn’t a bad plot, but i had hoped that they would at least assist the dragon slayers in slaying the dragons. I am curious as to what role the god slayers are going to play in the battle. I have yet to see any gods so Hiro had better elaborate on the whole god slayer business. Besides that however, i am curious as to how their magic affects dragons. I suspect that Jellal is sitting in a prison somewhere having exchanged his freedom for cobra’s.

I am starting to think that the dragons were right about the power gained from bathing in dragon blood, after all sting and rogue can achieve dragon force mode easily while Natsu can’t

Highlights: Rogue revealing that achnologia took over the world. I was afraid that Natsu’s initial attack had put that dragon down. That would have been disappointing. Pegasus blue’s attempts to take down the rock dragon where hilarious. I have always considered Ichiya to be a creepy comic, he managed to force a few chuckles out of me with his so called armpit perfume attack. I am loving Zirconis and his wacky attitude.

Lots of fan service in chapter 330, of course centered around Lucy.

MY RATING:> chapter 329- 3.5/5; chapter 330- 2/5, i get that it as was a set up chapter but that doesn’t change the fact that i was disappointed.

Howdy everyone and welcome to the Fairy Tail weekly report! This is the 2nd to last episode in the filler arc because next episode preview contains scenes of Legion and a scene of Sting Eucliffe and Rogue Cheney.

Plot

Only Brain II is left standing between Natsu and Lucy, but he's the most powerful of the Six Generals! Also, learn the secret history of Lucy and Michelle in this epic finale to the Key of the Starry Heavens arc!

By Crunchyroll

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

  • Emotional Momentum:Fairy Tail always grabs me when the old Fairy Tail music swings and Natsu and his gang kick butt. It's the only time where talk about friendship is allowed.
  • Michelle and Jude's Back Story: Michelle and Lucy's bond is one of the biggest highlights in this filler arc. In the end, Michelle/Imitatia really love Lucy, but she was controlled by Midnight as a puppet.
  • Natsu's fight with Midnight is short which is good because Natsu's fights are pretty much overpowering his enemies. No creativity or anything new occurs.

Bad

Rogue and Sting might show up at the end of Ep 151
Rogue and Sting might show up at the end of Ep 151
  • Pre-planning crap: I don't believe that Klodoa, Midnight, and the others set this plan for 7 years or more. That's ridiculous if you agree with me.
  • Midnight's daddy problems didn't go so well. Lucy and Natsu just rattled the guy's nerves which led to his defeat.
  • Next episode still includes some filler which will drive fans nuts when they want to see Sting and Rogue.

Bizarre

Cobra and Kinana - what's happening here?
Cobra and Kinana - what's happening here?
  • Kinana x Cobra:Wish we could see more of their back story on how the two met. They're pretty close.
  • Lucy became the ship.
  • What will happened to Kinana? Will she stay with the Fairy Tail guild?

Overall, this episode is decent. After stalling the anime with mediocre fights and stale humor, we're almost at the manga's current story. The unique thing about this filler arc is Michelle who brought a mystery element into it.

Plot

Welcome to the Weekly Fairy Tail! Last week's episode had a great battle for Gray, and the final battles are almost there. This week's episode concludes Erza's battle, Michelle/Imitatia's true identity, and starts up Natsu's battle with Midnight.

The battle to rescue Lucy from the Infinity Clock rages on, but it may be too late as Lucy becomes one with the clock! Plus, the climactic battle between Erza and Cobra!

— Crunchyroll

Verdict

Beware of Spoilers!

Good

Romeo and Natsu's Heat of Friendship
Romeo and Natsu's Heat of Friendship
  • Big Surprises: Man, I love Fairy Tail when their surprises are awesome. I had doubts if Michelle ever care for Lucy, but she did love Lucy to the very end. At first, I thought Michelle was fake, but I dropped the idea when Michelle reveals herself as Imitatia. Now, she's a doll that Lucy forgot.
  • Michelle/Imitatia's Character: Some of you guys and gals may not like Michelle/Imitatia, but I love her character. She was a ditzy character who care for Lucy, and when she was Imitatia, she was cool and had this Yuri obsession with Lucy. She made arc interesting enough to keep me watching it.
  • Heat of Friendship: Usually, I hate cliche scenes where Natsu and the gang talk about this subject. Romeo's speech is one of the best in this arc. The others didn't have enough emotion. When I saw Natsu punch Midnight for stepping on Michelle, that scene felt great.

Bad

Erza's battle is short and stale
Erza's battle is short and stale
  • Erza's battle with Cobra:It was mostly talking and little action. Cobra keeps being obsessed with Cubelios (Kinana) while Erza keeps talking about friendship.
  • The episode feels like it stalled again since it takes the whole episode for Cobra and Imitatia to be defeated. Imitatia's battle with Natsu and Romeo is better than Cobra's battle with Erza.

Overall, this episode is decent but the battles are stale with too much talking. Though, Romeo's talk to Imitatia added more emotion to Imitatia's battle while all that pent up despair makes Imitatia's death scene makes most of us feel sad or pity.
