Welcome to the weekly La Storia della Arcana Famiglia! Last week, Felicita, Nova, and Liberta stumbles upon a person in tube while in Jolly's laboratory. It's a homunculus. Things just got interesting in this series.

Plot

Felicita finds her father sleeping due to excess work, and she questions Dante and Jolly about her father and homunculus in the tube.

What secrets has Felicita has uncovered about her daddy?

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Mondo and the Arcana Cards
Mondo and the Arcana Cards
  • We finally know why Mondo hosted Arcana Duello and get a glimpse of his past and personality. Mondo's excess work is providing energy to Arcana Cards/ or Tarocco who have no hosts. This why Jolly is finding new hosts by experimenting on young children. Poor Debito, Luca, and Pace. They never knew the full truth.
  • Felicita's character shines in this episode. I'm glad she does because she is the main character who is overwhelmed by the presence of the interesting, male love interests. It's interesting that she is only character (as of right now) who holds two cards.

Bad

  • With these secrets exposed, wouldn't it be better to have explained after the tournament? Yet, this series is slated for 12 episodes from what I heard.
  • I hope this series finish what it started or at least end with a good ambiguous cliffhanger.

Overall, this episode is great but not perfect because we still have some things to expect from this show.

Arcana Powers Wiki Pages and Images

Besides collecting card images, I find the seals on the bodies interesting. I have to recapture them. Jolly's seal is on his right eye while Sumire's seal is on her left palm. I couldn't get a good shot for Felicita's Wheel of Fortune seal which is on her back. It was too far away.

Thanks

Thank you guys and gals for reading this report and supporting the franchise and the wiki pages. Every contribution counts and makes this community better.

Wiki Progress: With this recent development, I have to update Mondo, Dante, Jolly, Sumire, and Felicita's origin stories. I finished Ep. 9's page, but I need to add the accent marks to Felicitá and Libertà.

Due to Daniel's new image policy, Sonata is working on the profile portraits, 300 by 450 size images.

Hey everyone and welcome to the Fairy Tail weekly report! Last week, Lucy receives the shock of her life when she discovers her beloved cousin who is like a sister is her enemy. Natsu and Lucy wind up getting captured. It's up to the Fairy Tail gang to rescue them.

Plot

As Natsu and the Jiggle Butt Gang break out of their prison cell, Erza and the Fairy Tail gang ride Christina to stop the Oracion Seis from unleashing the nightmare that affects everyone's sense of time.

Can they save the day?

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

The first Big Butt Bandits' cool moment
The first Big Butt Bandits' cool moment
  • Despite the jiggle butt gang, it was actually pretty tame. For some weird reason, I enjoyed Natsu and their breaking out scene a lot.
  • We got more background info on Jude Heartphilia. Too bad, it's all filler information. Lucy is damn naive, but Imitatia had some feelings for her. Kindness is pretty contagious, eh guys and gals?
  • Mirajane's fight scene is unexpected and fun to watch. I enjoyed everyone's fights except for Natsu. He just overwhelm people with just brute force.

Bad

So looking forward to seeing her fight
So looking forward to seeing her fight
  • We didn't get anywhere much. It's just a big exposition and set up for new things to come.

Bizarre

Trivia: The Fairy Tail women wore the suit but not the men
Trivia: The Fairy Tail women wore the suit but not the men
  • If Celestial Wizards' Anti Link is severed and turn into a chrystallis stage, how come Katja is all normal?
  • Interestingly, Natsu declined to wear the Big Butt Bandits' tight spandex outfit. I realized it was the girls who wore them. Not a single man from Fairy Tail wore the spandex.

Overall, the episode is good but not awesome. It's just a slow episode where they set up things. I'm interested in the nightmare that affects everyone's sense of time. It's an interesting chaos element.

Thanks

Thank you guys and gals for supporting Fairy Tail and the wiki editors who are working hard. Any blogs, reviews, wiki edits, or comments would make Anime Vice a better place.

Wiki Progress: Daniel is currently doing character profile portraits. Please see his tutorial blog. I'm almost done with Ep. 145's page. Check out our Fairy Tail wiki project and list.

Welcome to the weekly Campione! report! I hope to continue to do this weekly, but when school rolls by, I might do this biweekly. Last week's episode finished Godou's battle with Duke Voban. We haven't seen the last of him. I still wonder about the fights between Campione. Are they held by rules like a fight for the best Campione or random battles? It's probably the first one.

Plot

Erica and Lucrezia trick Godou in going to Italy for a little vacation. Elsewhere in Napoli, Liliana watches Salvatore slashes Hera's Seal that attracts a dragon. A mysterious person arrives to stop the dragon. Godou meets a familiar person.

Who is the blonde man and who did Godou bump in Italy?

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

It's Godou and Liliana's turn
It's Godou and Liliana's turn
  • If you love fan service and beach scenes, this episode is good for you fans. There is a naughty scene where the girls fight over Godou while smothering him with their bosom.
  • Athena makes another appearance. Though, she somehow got Perseus to fight Godou.
  • Looks like we might have Liliana and Godou emphasis for this episode and maybe the next one. The last two episodes were about Yuri and her past.

Bad

  • Hit or Miss with cliche fan service and harems: Some of you might hate this because there is a bunch of cliches such as girls fighting over Godou and Yuri's towel falling off. Yuri slaps Godou for being pervert even though it is Yuri's fault for not tying her towel properly.

Bizarre

It looks like Arianna is drenched in...
It looks like Arianna is drenched in...
  • These thoughts are probably formed when my head is in the gutter. Yuri plays the motherly role while doing the shrine maiden/virgin fetish. Erica is the front liner, and Liliana plays hard to get or the tsundere part. I'm not sure about Athena. Some folks say Athena has a thing for Godou. I say let's wait to see some more stuff from her.

Overall, this episode is good but not great. I hope the Perseus battle is more better than Duke Voban's battle. Athena's battle with Godou is the best in my opinion because it had an even teamwork between Erica and Godou.

In Duke Voban's battle, the girls did most of the work, and Godou was just kissing them.

Trivia Time!

Sometimes, I did this for the Fairy Tail and Sket Dance weekly reports, but I ran out of time and creativity.

  • Godou: 1, 2,
  • Erica: 1, 2,
  • Yuri: 1, 2,
  • Athena: 1,

Thanks

Thank you everyone for reading this report and supporting both the anime and the wiki editors who are working hard. Any help to the wiki page, blogs, and comments would be appreciated.

Wiki Progress: Daniel and I finished Ep. 8's wiki page; I added Perseus's page. I think I updated Yuri's evolution section last week; Sonata updated Athena and Duke Voban's powers (the column on the right for those who are new).
