Legion News

Legion is a anime/manga concept

Plot

Welcome to the weekly Fairy Tail report. I'm proud to announced that the Starry Sky/ Filler arc is finished! Though, we get to see Byro and his gang for one more time in this episode.

After Makarov accepts Byro's apology, the Fairy Tail gang and Legion have a wild party. Then, Makarov has a word with Gildartz and the others reach some closure with each other. Meanwhile, two mysterious strangers appear. It's Sting and Rogue, the newest Dragon Slayers in the anime.

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

  • Juvia: Gray, who is this guy?
    Juvia: Gray, who is this guy?
    Finally this filler arc ends. We get a bit of Sting and Rogue and news that Gildartz is the new guild master. Wonder how Gildartz will handle leadership.
  • While Lucy and Mary's scene is touching, Juvia and Dan's scenes are funny. I love how Dan is frighten by Juvia or the fact that Juvia ignores that Gray's beauty attracts men such as Sugarboy. The part where Natsu tries to make Byro smile is awkward yet humorous.
  • Theme songs are great. The ending is mellow and shows Mavis who we haven't seen much. The opening is also mellow, and I like how it shows all of the guilds fighting in the tournament.

Bad

  • For those who want to get into the main storyline, the first half is just filler part where they party. It was a slow episode.

Bizarre

  • The cats are in strange color. When I first saw Frosh in the manga, I thought he is in a green or blue frog suit, and his fur is red. Instead, we get a pink frog. For me, I thougt Lector was suppose to be orange or yellow. I don't mind the colors.
  • In the opening, team Fairy Tail had purple outfits. It's a unique color to say the least.

Overall, the episode is average but good. It's just slow when you looking at the Fairy Tail characters catching up with Legion and there is some exposition on Zeref and Sabertooth's part.

Thanks

Plot

Welcome everyone to the Weekly Fairy Tail report! The Fairy Tail gang is taking the fight on Zentopia's turf to defeat the Oracion Seis and stop the nightmare.

Fairy Tail's Race Against Time
Fairy Tail's Race Against Time

Cardinal Rapowant's devious plans begin coming to fruition as time itself warps, affecting even the Fairy Tail members aboard Ichiya's Christina. En route to rescue Natsu and Lucy, they become children, elderly, and even different species!

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Wendy and Tanooki Carla
Wendy and Tanooki Carla
  • Mirajane's fight with Racer is good but not better than her fight with Mary Hughes.
  • Ichiya has become a cool and serious person in this filler arc. He give Lucy advice about relying on friendship. Plus, he hasn't done his parfum sniffing thing with Erza.
  • The Fairy Tail gang has some time mishaps. Wendy and the Exceeds' alternate forms are awesome.

Bad

Are we almost done with arc?
Are we almost done with arc?
  • We all know the animation in this filler arc is not that great when you compared to Tenrou Island arc. It's tough to enjoy some of the cool action scenes.
  • Perception of Time: I remembered that the nightmare should alter one's sense of time, yet in this episode, it transform folks, objects, and their environments.
  • It might be slow for you guys and gals since the whole episode is about Fairy Tail getting to Oracion Seis and it sets up more battles for next episode.

Overall, the episode is good but not great. With the mystery almost solved, the episode didn't have much interesting things. I hope the fight in the next episode will be better.

Thanks to Random Curiosity for the images.

Hey everyone, welcome to the Weekly Fairy Tail report. We are on the 17th episode of this massive filler arc. Last week, we saw the Fairy Tail guild get their butts kicked the Oracion Seis again. This week's episode is a bit mellow and dark.

Plot

Oracion Seis has made off with the Infinity Clock and seems intent on counting down to doomsday. Meanwhile, Fairy Tail regroups, using Cana's divination skills to locate Oracion Seis's targets and choose the best teams to go after them.

By Crunchyroll

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Wendy and Bixlow - a loli and a mage who screams babies
Wendy and Bixlow - a loli and a mage who screams babies
  • Despite the lack of action, this episode did a good job of setting up for the next episode's fights.
  • There are still questions left unanswered such as who is the mysterious girl with the green Plue, how did Lucy's father get involved with the clock, and who is the girl that Cobra is referring to (It's Kinana, but I have a feeling Kinana is something else).
  • Fairy Tail New Teams: Since Fairy Tail has an enormous roster of characters, it's excellent to see different people pairing up. I loved how Gray & Freed and Bixlow & Wendy are paired up. Wendy and Bixlow are an unusual pair.

Fairy Tail Teams

Mysterious girl - A disciple of Will Neville?
Mysterious girl - A disciple of Will Neville?
  1. Freed and Gray
  2. Erza, Evergreen, and Max
  3. Gajeel and Juvia
  4. Bickslow and Wendy
  5. Happy, Carla, and Pantherlily
  6. Natsu, Lucy, Elfman, and Michelle

What is your favorite match up in this episode?

Bad

  • Fairy Tail is a light anime, and violence is not graphic or bloody. When the Cardinal punishes the priest, you can hear him scream in agony. It's up to fans who want the anime uncensored or not.
  • The arc is long, but Hiro Mashima is trying to create a gap between manga's plotline and the anime. It's going to be tough to keep watching. I hope this arc ends well.
  • The new character Guttman or Gatman is like Jackpot. You can't take them seriously.

Overall, this episode is good but not great as well. It's light on the humor and action.

Plot

Welcome to the Weekly Fairy Tail report! Last week, Oracion Seis makes their debut after 7 years. Like the others, they look much better pre time skip.

Just when it looks Fairy Tail is about to have a climactic fight with Byro over the Infinity Clock, Oracion Seis returns, with upgraded powers and a desire to make the ominous clock their own!

Via Crunchyroll

Verdict

Good

  • Lucy and Michelle are like sisters
    Lucy and Michelle are like sisters
    Despite that Fairy Tail got their butts kicked by the Oracion Seis twice upon their first meetings, the action is good. Angel had some cool magic, and I'm curious to see how she got those "angel" magic. I thought she would have different Gate Keys. Cobra improved as he counters his weakness. Erigor is not a pushover anymore. Midnight seems more feminine. Not to offend female fans.
  • Lucy and Michelle got some tender moments.
  • Some people hate Ichiya, but I find this interesting that Ichiya has a serious, excellent scene with Lucy. It didn't have a lot of friendship cliche. It had the right balance unlike Natsu's speech to Byro in the last episode.

Bad

  • Asuka already figured it out before Lucy did
    Asuka already figured it out before Lucy did
    This episode is not that bad. It didn't lag much. It can be hit or miss for fans who already hate this filler. I know it's a long arc, but I believe Fairy Tail will follow the manga faithfully. I just wish Hiro Mashima improves his story telling skills to give series a beautiful ending. Right now, Fairy Tail has surpassed Rave Master in anime and manga length.
  • Late Epiphany: Fans already know that collecting the pieces is bad news. Lucy is a bit slow.

Points of Interest

  • What are you hiding, Michelle?
    What are you hiding, Michelle?
    In addition to Ichiya's serious scene, Dan complements him by acting goofy as he tries to hit on Angel.
  • Michelle is hiding something. I suspect something amiss during Infinity Clock pieces hunt.

Overall, this episode is much better than the beginning episodes of this filler arc. I hope Lamia Scale and Fairy Tail team up to take down Oracion Seis. Maybe Jellal would appear. Who knows?

Plot

Welcome everyone to the Weekly Fairy Tail report! It's another busy week in Anime Vice for everyone. Lots of anime series are ending this week such as Fate Zero. Luckily, Fairy Tail is still running.

As Lucy and the gang listen to Dan's life story, Pantherlily and Samuel duke it out in the skies. Meanwhile, Gajeel and his gang fight some Griffon Kato statues after obtaining a clock piece; Elfman and his sisters find their clock piece, but Mary Hughes is there to stop them. With Dan and Coco unable to do the job, Byro appears. Will the Fairy Tail gang stop Legion before they obtained the clock pieces?

Verdict

Good

The two lovebirds work together
The two lovebirds work together
  • Finally, we get an Exceed Battle between Pantherlily and Samuel. It's a bit short, but their rivalry is great since both characters complement each other.
  • Dan and Samuel share their background a bit. Dan's life is a bit light hearted when his quest for love ends with most women beating him up. I wonder why Lucy doesn't beat up Dan like she does with Natsu. Has she gone soft?
  • Gajeel and Levy's relationship is improving to say the least. Jet and Droy's efforts are a bit humorous. I can see how the years went by for Levy's comrades.

Bad

They basically waited the whole episode while Lucy got chased by Dan
They basically waited the whole episode while Lucy got chased by Dan
  • Besides Pantherlily's battle and Gajeel's group getting the clock part, not much happens in this episode. Basically, Natsu's group's scenes is not that entertaining. They set up the battles for the next episode. I know they're stalling for the manga to get ahead of the anime. There are better ways to stall.
  • Since they show Dan's origin story, they could have show some of Samuel's backstory or extended the fight scene between the two cats.

Overall, the episode is good but not satisfying enough to look forward each week. I'm stoked for Byro and Mary Hughes fights next week because Mirajane has another new form of Satan Soul. They better not disappoint the fans. In the episode preview, I'm puzzled why Erza's gang are in tight black spandex. I'm hoping we don't see the Big Butt Gang again.

Dan's Love Life

I uploaded these shots. I loved these scenes.

Here's Shadow Gear and Gajeel's shots. I know it's a bad pun.
