I am not particularly sure of what i read in this week’s fairy tail chapter, but maybe something that Hiro wanted to say got lost in translation. Seriously though, the amount of fan service in this chapter…a review i watched on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UEA4_52Ns8) imputed this chapter to nothing more than 22 pages of soft-core porn; i have seen chapters before where Hiro has made an extra effort, seemingly, to prove to us the extent of his skill with regards to drawing naked characters but this was a little excessive.
Here is what pissed me off about this chapter though, nothing whatsoever happened. What the heck kind of fairy tail chapter was this, with nearly every page wasted telling us what we either already knew, or more drivel about what it means to be a member of fairy tail (and more naked Lucy, Erza, Wendy, even Warrod himself).
I am seriously starting to lose my patience over how the characters seem to over romanticize the nature of their guild, and even the revelation that Tartarus may be demon worshipers in possession of the book of Zeref did little to assuage my irritation over how meager the content in this chapter was. The ending might have salvaged the chapter at least; and by the ending i am not talking about that scene with Natsu and Erza, but the title of the next chapter, seemingly a prologue to the Tartarus arc.

RATING: 1/5, Hiro really went all out this time. Though it s possible that i am just over reacting because fairy tail rarely does these sorts of chapters.

@katmic:

You got to be careful where you placed your threads. This one was placed in fan fic. I need to clean your scans of illegal scanlation sites again.

Actually, I'm behind in Fairy Tail. I'll catch up. Got to support the FT folks here.

@katmic:

Plus, you have to careful about what fan art you post. The fan art that you posted is created by a Fairy Tail Wikia and Deviant Art member, TheCarrotSaysYumYum. You need to ask them permission which I don't think you did. I'm going to remove your image from the blog and your gallery. Sorry.

I thought it was a fun chapter. The fan service was over the top, for sure, but I like that Hiro Mashima is ballsy enough to do that every once in a while. Plus there's almost as much naked guy as there is naked girl in this chapter, so the fan service doesn't seem particularly "sexist" as some people often like to label it.

Erza's wanted to share a bath with the boys for a while, I think she's said on more than one occasion that she wouldn't mind. She claims it's all in the name of skinship and bonding, but I think it's really her naughty side coming through -- as hinted at in the Fairy Hills OVA when Levi let slip that Erza has a fascination with adult reading material, ha! I'm pretty sure she thinks of Natsu and Gray as her little boy toys.

Still, not a chapter everyone will appreciate, which is perfectly understandable. The latest chapter kind of makes up for it by having an extra long chapter that definitely moves the plot along.

That's not a written rule anywhere. If you want to ask for permission for every piece of fan art you upload that's fine, but personally I just make sure the artist is credited and if they want the image removed, by all means I'll remove it from the site.

@Daniel_Newton:

I know that person since I was in Fairy Tail Wikia. She or he doesn't like folks uploading his/or her work without asking. I just removed just to be safe.
