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

  • 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

  • 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.

Welcome to another weekly Fairy Tail report! I'm Taka, wiki editor who is working on the Fairy Tail project with Daniel and Annabanana. Last week, the episode is a bit of hit or miss with the fans. However, this episode brings back some action and hilarious scenes for this week. Also, I update you guys and gals with a progress report on the wiki projects.

Plot Summary

While Gildartz goes off for a solo mission to investigate the Legion, Lucy and her gang stop by the Heartfilia mansion to look up clues about Jude's Memento. They find a book called Key of the Starry Heavens. Suddenly, they get attacked by Legion Corp's mages: Samuel and Dan Straight.

Can Lucy and her gang fend off Legion Corp's attacks and keep the book away from them?

Verdict

Good

Happy holds lil Natsu
Happy holds lil Natsu
  • There are some memorable and hilarious scenes especially when Dan fall heads over heels for Lucy. He is more bold than Hibiki, Juvia, and the other lovestruck characters.
  • Cute Noises Make Another Comeback: I call them noises or sound effects. Erza makes that cute "Kya" a second time since her funny scene of falling into Lucy's pitfall. That "Whoa" sound appears when Samuel flips Michelle's skirt.
  • Last but the funniest scene, Happy stepping over Natsu who was shrunk by Dan's lance. The way he holds him reminds me of a little boy playing with his action figures.

Bad

  • Jackpot is a stupid name for a villain, but I didn't find it funny where his powers relies on a slot machine.

Overall, the episode is great with the second half having the best scenes. Though, the defeat of Fairy Tail can sour some fans due to the past episodes. I'm sure the comedy will cheer them up. The good section is my bizarre section since everything's a bit bizarre.

Dan Straight's Confession for Lucy

New Characters

Samuel
Samuel

Samuel is the new Exceed in the Fairy Tail anime. He acts like a know-it-all person which infuriates Natsu and his teammates. He has this strange ability to predict what Natsu's team does and orders Dan to obey his commands except when Dan falls in love with Lucy.

Dan Straight
Dan Straight

Dan Straight is quite the energetic person with a strange name. He hits on Lucy and remarks to Erza that Lucy is way cuter than her. Plus, he is a tough opponent with a shield that reflects both physical and magical attacks and a lance that shrinks things.

All of the snapshots are in the episode 132's gallery. Have fun!

Thanks
