Welcome to the Weekly Fairy Tail manga! I'm Takashichea, a Fairy Tail wiki editor and fanatic. Continuing off chapter 333, we are heading deep in the battle between mages and dragons.

Plot

Natsu and evil Rogue and their dragons are neck and neck in their battle. While Rogue has brute force, Natsu has Nakama power. Meanwhile, one dragon tells present Rogue that he cannot kill him. Rogue denies it, but his shadow keeps taunting him. Nearby, Ultear is thinking whether to kill Rogue or not. Despite what Natsu said, Ultear is bent on killing Rogue to fix this time period.

Verdict

Good

  • Some dragon on dragon action is seen as well as the power of friendship is being demonstrated by Natsu.
  • At last, there are some conflicts with Ultear who is planning to kill Rogue. Will she do it, readers?
  • The timeline is a nice addition to the chapter. Clears some things up.

Bad

  • For those who hate cliches, Natsu's friendship can be heavy. I'm pretty used to it.

Bizarre

  • Where is Meredy? I want to see her take on killing Rogue.

Overall, the chapter is pretty entertaining. A good read to pass the time. For me, every Fairy Tail chapter is short. I try not to read it under five minutes.

Thank you for reading and please support the franchise by buying the manga or checking it out in the library in your home country. Or you can help out in the Fairy Tail wiki project.

All comments are welcome here or over at the Fairy Tail Discussion (Manga) thread.

Wiki progress:

Been preoccupied with the spring 2013 shows, I will update volumes and their list of chapters. I thank Pikahyper and Daniel for helping me out in the project. I will add the new manga characters such as Atlas Flame.

At the A-Kon panel, FUNimation announced the dub cast for Haganai.

Synopsis

Kodaka Hasegawa is a recent transfer student to St. Chronica's Academy, a Catholic high school. As with every other school he has ever attended, he finds it difficult to make friends there because of his naturally-blond hair and fierce-looking eyes, which make him look like a dangerous "yankee" to his prejudiced schoolmates. One day, Kodaka accidentally comes across the equally solitary and very abrasive Yozora Mikazuki while she converses with her imaginary friend Tomo. Realizing that neither of them have any social lives, they decide that the best way to improve their situation is to form a club: the Neighbor's Club precisely intended to make friends and learn social skills.

Dub Cast

Shoutout to Haganai fans: and
