Background: Since Newten wrote the weekly reports on Fairy Tail episode 88 and 89, he stopped due to his busy school schedule and a trip to Turkey (if I'm right). Now, we're past episode 100; I haven't did a blog or something special to commemorate Hiro Mashima and his staff's work on Fairy Tail. (There is a special blog that was delayed, but Newten will put it up when he is free from school) I'm doing this report for all the Fairy Tail fans and my beloved teammates who have worked on Fairy Tail and its bounty tasks throughout the year.
Welcome to Fairy Tail's Tenrou Island Adventures report! I'm your host, Taka, a proud member of Team W.I.K.I. Nation on Anime Vice. This report is on episode 100 to 105 where Fairy Tail members have an S class exam on Tenrou Island; the winner will become the new S Class mage of Fairy Tail. The exam does not go well when Zeref appears and Grimoire Heart guild crash the party to hunt for Zeref and to wipe out Fairy Tail guild.
Will Fairy Tail guild be able to defeat their enemies? Who will become S Class mage of Fairy Tail?
Sadly, these questions are not answer in these five episodes, so you got to watch more Fairy Tail!
Unlike the regular weekly reports that I do for Sket Dance, Beelzebub, and Blue Exorcist, there will be a bullet for each episode. Beware of Spoilers! Plus, I linked this blog to the episodes and image galleries, so you know what Anna and I have been doing since the summer.
- Fairy Tail 100: Mest - It has a ton of hilarious scenes such as Gray and Loke's battle with Wendy and Mest and Mirajane's thoughts of Elfman and Evergreen's illegitimate heir.
- Fairy Tail 101: Black Wizard - Gajeel and Levy's battle and relationship is the hallmark of this episode.
- Fairy Tail 102: Soul of Iron - Gajeel's story and battle are the highlights of this episode. Fans get to know him more and cheer him on.
- Fairy Tail 103: Makarov Charges - The battle with Seven Kin of Purgatory finally begins with Azuma fighting Pantherlily, Wendy, and Mest. Viewers get to know Makarov's past a little more.
- Fairy Tail 104: Lost Magic - Makarov's battle is intense as he battles Hades, his former master; every member of Fairy Tail meet one of Seven Kin of Purgatory.
- Fairy Tail 105: Fire Dragon VS Flame God - Natsu's battle with Zancrow is vicious and furious, and in the end, Natsu reveals another side to him as he confess that he is afraid.
- 100: Erza's battle with Juvia and Lisanna did not appear much. There's too much stuff for the episode to cover, so Erza fans are disappointed.
- 101: Lucy and Cana's scene make the flow of the episode slow. It's like a big teaser before the Gajeel's battle.
- 102: Issues with censorship - for manga purists, they won't like how the scene where Gajeel's arm gets impaled altered.
- 103: There are only two battles, and for those of us who crave action, it's not enough.
- 104: Again with the censorship, Hades blasts through Makarov's body; it only leaves a hole in his shirt. It looks unrealistic.
- 105: For the female fans, the butt shots of Lisanna and Mirajane can be distracting. The other thing is that Caprico's fight is overshadowed by Natsu's fight which makes the fight scene useless due to the lack of spotlight.
It was a bit hard to get the bad stuff for the four previous episodes.
- 100: Mest is weird; his personality does not match to Mystogan's silent and serious personality.
- 101: Juvia's daydream of Gray reflects the filler only move while Erza's daydreams are a bit exaggerated.
- 102: Levy makes some iron for Gajeel. Why does it have a heart? What does that imply?
- 103: Ultear blushes when she utter the word, "Zeref," as she searches for him.
- 104: Why does Kain speak so clearly when he is alone and getting lost?
- 105: Even though Natsu has a serious battle, there are silly antics such as Zancrow's gecko comparison and Makarov's disbelief that sends Zancrow flying.
Another reason for the weekly report, I noticed a new visitor, Aniie, add so much Fairy Tail trivia two weeks ago or so. I wanted to acknowledge her. Please thank Annabanana and Aniie for these excellent trivia questions. Anna's questions are marked by "Anna" since Aniie did a lot of trivia questions.
