Hello everyone! Just sharing some cool artwork from Valentine's Day this year. Figured it would be a nice break to post this before getting back to work. I wish I posted this on Feb. 14, but I was out sick the whole weekend while trying to study for midterms this week. Please share any artwork, official or fan art.

For you Infinite Stratos fan, a dose of cat girl maids with juicy chocolate is a double whammy here.

Fairy Tail (Wendy)

Was expecting Hiro Mashima to put Lucy or Erza, two of the most popular and endowed Fairy Tail gals. Seeing Wendy here was just so adorable. She has that shy but determined look to give out chocolate to someone.

Nurse Hitomi

Have read Nurse-Teacher Hitomi's infirmary to sample it once I heard about another monster manga series being licensed by Seven Seas Entertainment. It reminds me of Monster Musume. Nurse and cyclops combo is a double win!

Didn't know it was Ban's birthday! Ban is one cool dude.

Lastly, we have Sonico and Pochaco. Sonico is rocking the cute succubus theme while Pochaco is very risque with her outfit and theme. Pochaco is one of the few anime characters that have very wide hips. Most of time, you see well endowed characters with thin figure or hour glass shape (cough One Piece). It's nice to see diversity in beauty.

Thank you everyone for reading. I bet you all had a great Valentines weekend.

My Burrito Review of Fairy Tail
My Burrito Review of Fairy Tail

Welcome to the Fairy Tail review! I'm Takashichea (Taka for short) who is a big Fairy Tail fan and wiki editor. There are so much content in Fairy Tail, so I decide to review the last parts of Fairy Tail because it's fresh in my head. Since this review is for the Anime Vice's Write A Review & You Could Win A Copy of FAIRY TAIL! contest, I have to set it up like a burrito.

See Link to the Fairy Tail Facebook page!


Some of these ingredients are fantastic, and these make Fairy Tail enjoyable. The unique part about Fairy Tail's Time Skip was that it did a 7 years skip, but the main characters along with a few supporting characters didn't age. Compared to Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece, everyone had aged. The Grand Magic Games/ Tournament arc in Fairy Tail may seem a cliche arc you see in most Battle Shonen series. For Fairy Tail, it had build up the characters to this point where you want to root for your favorites and new characters. For the filler arc, it's has some good parts and bad. Overall, it wasn't exciting as the tournament arc. When you hit the filler arc, you may skip it or not. If you eat a breakfast burrito each day, you might get bored of it. That's how I personally felt with the filler arc.

Story and Characters

Ravages of Time and Old Wounds
Ravages of Time and Old Wounds

The Key of the Starry Sky filler arc is an extension of Lucy Heartfilia who suffers from the ravages of time. Even though she still has her guild as a secondary family, she lost her father. She regrets not spending the time with her father who was worried about her those seven years. Because of the Phantom arc, Lucy had distance herself from her father. It was tear jerking to see her story with her father reach closure. The rest of the gang didn't have a lot of issues with the time skip like how Lucy did. Later in the Grand Magic Game, Erza encounters her past when Jellal and Millianna come into play. That makes the story in Fairy Tail come full circle. These past arcs still have their roots embedded.

Random Funny Moments + Shipping
Random Funny Moments + Shipping

For the characters, their fight and struggles are what gets the audience revved up. Lucy's fight with Flare just makes you want Fairy Tail to win. Natsu's and the guild's drive to back up Lucy makes you feel you're part the experience. Even though the friendship theme is a bit overwhelming, Natsu's speech manages to stir me up. With the action and drama, Fairy Tail's comedic scenes are often warm and enjoyable. Happy's scene of Lucy's sex appeal finally working or Mirajane vs Jenny's cosplay fight were great and memorable. Some of the humor comes from shipping characters make some scenes irresistible like Erza and Jellal's scenes by the beach. The fans loves this part of Fairy Tail, the silly romance we make it up in our heads.

The flavor of this series' burrito is memorable. You can't forget these characters and their stories.

Just Needs More Seasoning or Flavor


Personally, the music in Fairy Tail wasn't memorable. I sometimes hum different anime songs along with other music at random points in the day. I don't really hum the Fairy Tail theme songs. It's not that I hate Fairy Tail songs. It's a bit average.


I don't know if it's my eyes or Crunchyroll. That's the legal streaming site I use predominantly for Fairy Tail until Crunchyroll remove the episodes later on. I feel the animation was sharper and crisp in the Tenrou Island arc. For the animation in the Starry Sky arc and Grand Magic Games, the animation looks blurry. Close up of characters look fine, but shots of characters in the middle ground are pretty blurred. The animation in the fight scenes are lower than ones you see in Kill la Kill and other anime series that are produced by companies like Production I.G, Inc.


Big Butt Gang - Hit or Miss. Wendy look good
Big Butt Gang - Hit or Miss. Wendy look good

Everyone might run into a bad burrito or ate a stale burrito. There are some stale parts in Fairy Tail's last arc or some times there is an odd combination of flavors.

  • Big Butt Gang - This group is from Hiro Mashima's old work, Rave Master. There is a hit or miss with this group. Personally, I find them annoying. While it's funny to see Erza, Wendy, and Carla wearing these outfits, the Big Butt Gang can be gross. The Big Butt Gang can be an odd flavor that's out of place like anchovies. You don't see anchovies in burritos.
  • Overuse of Friendship - This is part of eating the same burrito gets boring. Fairy Tail solves its serious fights with friendship often. For children, it's a good theme to reinforce. For the adults, you get tired of it.
  • Being a filler arc, the Key of the Starry Sky arc does a lot of padding and set ups for the next fight. You find yourself wanting to get this done. Some of the plot seems predictable like Michelle's identity coming out. When Lucy has a late epiphany that to resolve means defeating Oracion Seis. That's pretty predictable. Fairy Tail solves everything by punching in the face.
  • Tournament arc had a slow start and short matches. Some folks love short battles compared to some Shonen series that are known for ridiculous long battles. For Fairy Tail, these matches that pit your favorite character against another. You want it to be satisfying. Some fights like Wendy vs Chelia are stalled. I remember most of the fight began in the next episode.

Tortilla - End

The Tortilla part in the burrito is what holds the ingredients together. Fairy Tail did a decent job for its last arc back in 2013. It's coming back from a year break starting this spring 2014 season. The story does get stale and look like its running out of ideas, but it keeps you going with its characters and their zany adventures. Fans will look forward to Fairy Tail. Newcomers will enjoy Fairy Tail if they like the simplistic characters, a bit of fan service, and light hearted fun.

Okay Fairy tail is officially back in my good books; I have been on the fence for a few chapters, unsure as to whether or not i had any interest in where this was going. This chapter gave me some hope that we might be in for a really interesting ride. Not that the chapter was mind blowing or anything.

It's just that....i was entertained while reading it and it has been quite a while since 19 pages of a fairy tail chapter excited me.


Natsu meets up with Lucy, Wendy and Flare, and together they head to the eternal flame, which turns out to be the entire frozen mountain. Just then Gray, Charlie and Happy arrive on the scene, fleeing the giant bird that ate Doriate. Gray believes he can melt the ice now that he knows how to conduct it through his body.

While he accomplishes this mission, Natsu takes on the bird, engaging it in a short but intense fight that bring the bird to its knees.

Natsu then joins Gray as he attempts to the melt the ice.

He melts the ice indeed, but the flame within disappears the instant it is freed.


This chapter was more action than anything, with the only progression in the story occurring at the end. But i liked it. For one thing the art was better than what we saw last week. And the action sequences with the bird were actually well choreographed and interesting to read.

Like i said, the battle was short yet intense enough to illicit some excitement. We didn't get any shots of Erza but maybe that is good. Hopefully Hiro dedicates the next chapter to their fight.

Though now that i think about it, Natsu and company will most likely interfere. After all without the mountain to obscure the way, i wouldn't be surprised if Erza and Minerva were just a few hundred meters away.

That doesn't sound so bad actually, since i do not think we have seen Natsu Vs. Minerva yet.

The eternal flame is a mystery. I was surprised at how MASSIVE it was, and i have to wonder how the heat waves of a roaring mountain high flame didn't cook everything in the vicinity, the village included.

I have a feeling all that happened is that on melting the ice, the generated water simply quenched the flame.

It is possible, though it is a strange wonder that ice could freeze a flame in place. We now know that the voice Natsu heard was emanating from the flame. I still think this is related to Igneel. I cannot think of anyone fire related character that could be within or connected to the flame.

I am starting to enjoy the mystery shrouding this arc, so many questions yet unanswered while raising new

ones. Seeing Leon on the cover made me wonder how the hell he lost to Gray and Juvia in the tournament. After seven years of growth he should have been miles ahead of both of them.

RATING: 4/5, this was a decent chapter, with great fights and an intriguing mystery at the end.

Highlight: Finding out that the mountain was the flame.

Predictions: There is every chance that the reason the village was frozen was to protect the flame. Maybe it was already on the verge of disappearing for one reason or another and someone took steps to prevent that. I wouldn't be surprised that Gray unleashed a disaster when he melted the ice.

Ooh, atlas flame.

This chapter was strange, i do not mean that in a bad way...or maybe i do. I reminded of the sorts of scenes i usually find in the rare fairy tail filler that i have come across.


We learn that Flare's appearance isn't totally by accident. Flare is a citizen of the village of the sun, and she is pissed off at what has become of her home. The hunters are quick to refute the accusations aimed at them but end up admitting that they are hunting the eternal flame.

Flare goes on the offensive and loses. Wendy and Lucy however team up and take all three hunters down.

I think that was it...oh and two pages of fan service.


There was one exciting thing in this chapter and that was learning that the village of the sun was Flare's home. Okay, i wouldn't call it exciting, more like an interesting bit of information.

The rest of this chapter was mostly meh. Virgo's antics were funny as usual and it was good to see Leo, but other than that little else happened in this chapter worth mentioning, which isn't a good thing considering the fact that this was an action packed chapter.

Considering how hyped they were in previous chapters, the hunters went down quite easily. True they put up a fight, but it all seemed too easy at the end. I wasn't happy with that.

Learning that Flare's powers were instigated by the eternal flame augurs some interesting events to come in the future. Who knows what will happen when Natsu eats it, and we all know he will.


Highlights: Virgo trying to dive into the ice.

Hey guys, I'm Taka, and I'm just picking off where Katmic left off. See his Ch. 344 review blog. Don't worry, I'm a temp. Feel free to join the gang in the Fairy Tail Discussion (Manga) thread.

Don't worry, I got your back.


After the intense battle between Fairy Tail & the guilds and Future Rogue & his dragons, Natsu and the gang are taking a trip to save the giants - who all have been frozen. While Erza finds herself reverted to her child form, Natsu and his team are fighting against some treasure hunters. In the middle of battle, Natsu follows a voice. He finds himself reverted to his child form by a strange man. Around the same time, Erza runs into Minerva, who is a member of Succubus Eye. Elsewhere, Wendy and Lucy find themselves in a tight bind until Flare Corona arrives to save them. Is she Lucy's friend or foe? (Looking at her breast that holds the Succubus Eye stamp)



  • Cana and Wendy
    Cana and Wendy
    I forgot the bonus chapter where Fairy Tail B do their punishment game. It's a fun chapter, and it explores another aspect, Cana and Wendy's relationship. What I love about Fairy Tail is that it has a huge roster of characters, and it does well exploring them. Lot of shows can't do what Fairy Tail does with its characters. Cana has that gentle side to her, you don't see much.
  • Old Villains Come Back: It's awesome that Minerva and Flare are coming back. It's not Fairy Tail when it's missing some dangerous divas. I wonder if Flare is bent on getting revenge on Lucy after that bath scene.
  • Little Natsu and Erza are pretty cute. Erza's imagination and her insecurities are pretty hilarious especially that Jellal is not into lolis.


  • With this new arc, the fans who want a serious story after Mavis and Zeref declare war will be disappointed. It's Hiro Mashima's style. You see it in Rave Master and his other works. Heck, a lot of Shonen shows do this. Just sit back and enjoy it. It's not bad like the Key of the Starry Sky arc with the Big Butt Bandits.

Overall, these last three chapters are enjoyable. It's slow in story, but you'll love the punishment game, little Erza's scene, or the skirmishes/reunions between Fairy Tail and its new and old enemies.

Wiki Progress

I have been behind. Fairy Tail Wikia is doing pretty well. Here, it's just Daniel and I, but we're busy with other things. If you love Fairy Tail, come and join us in the discussion or wiki. I'll do a catch up. The search engine is broken for two weeks or more. New pages won't appear, but I will create new Fairy Tail pages.

Aaaaaaah, Hiro went ahead to do exactly what i was praying he would do his best to avoid.Suddenly this arc looks like it is going to take a more comedic cutesy turn.


Last week the hunters bested fairy tail. This week find out that, following Natsu’s disbelief that mere humans without magic could defeat magical opponents, the hunters are not as average as assumed and are actually champions of the hunter guilds’ version of the Daimatou Enbu, making them fairy tail’s equal at least as far as accolades are concerned. Gray still manages to steal the moon drip which they go on to pass around among themselves as they avoid the hunters until it gets to Happy’s turn.

The exceed drops the bottle, causing panic. But as predicted it only melts a small portion of the ice on the ground and from beneath Natsu hears a voice using his enhanced senses which he says is familiar. He runs off to find it as everyone else follows, eventually colliding with the mage that was with Minerva on her first appearance in this arc. Before Natsu can react, the mage reverts him to his younger self, making him less of a threat.

Elsewhere Erza grapples with her tiny size and searches for a solution.


First the good bits: i am starting to like Sylph Labyrinth. They are proving to be very capable mages. I actually didn’t realize it last time that the hunters were human. I assumed they were somehow manipulating magic through their gadgets. The fact that they managed to hold fairy tail off so easily without magic makes them that much more impressive. I liked the bit about the hunters’ tournament, proving that they are just as capable as fairy tail, who are magic champions.

It took everyone way too long to figure out the fact that the moon drip was too little to prove useful. But i liked the comedic elements it injected into the scenes, especially when happy dropped the bottle and he asked Natsu to spank him. Erza’s scenes were funny enough, especially when she was imagining how different her life would be if she couldn’t revert to her normal age.

What i didn’t like was the age reversing bit. I am starting to fear that this is going to turn into a chibi arc. And i am not saying that it automatically means Hiro will mess up. Just that i have never seen a chibi related arc or saga execute well on screen. I will commend Hiro though. I still can’t predict where this story is going and that is good. If there is one place fairy tail goes wrong, it is when it becomes too predictable to be enjoyable.

I am starting to think that the enemy mage shrank Natsu and Erza because he heard from Minerva just how dangerous fairy tail was. That makes him seem weak though.

RATING:>3/5; overall a decent chapter, even though i didn’t like where it seemed to be going.

Highlight: Happy’s dropping of the bottle, the reactions of everyone.

I am really starting to regain my faith in Fairy tail. Obviously that makes me naive because anyone that has read fairy tail extensively knows that Hiro never does anything new. None the less i am choosing to have hope in this new arc.

I enjoyed this chapter. Story wise, we didn't get anyway, but not every chapter of a manga series is able to create a natural pacing in story while constantly making new revelations. For now i am comfortable.


Thinking about it, little happened. The chapter starts off with fairy tail pursuing sylph labyrinth for the moon drip. The dialogue here i mostly comedic. The hunters complain that they went through quite a lot to acquire the moon drip and it wouldn't serve their interests to give it up so easily.

They eventually stop fleeing and engage fairy tail, proving to be a formidable force. Fairy tail quickly realizes that they will have to take the fight seriously after the trio deflects there attacks.

Elsewhere Erza does a bit of investigation, discovering that the giants had been heading into the mountains when they were frozen, clearly armed and ready to fight against something.

At the mountain top, she discovers something and before she can react, she finds herself transformed a younger version of herself.


As i mentioned above, this was a fun chapter, compounding upon the quality of the last six chapters. The art was great and again i am not sure if it's me who has never paidmuch attention to fairy tail art or Hiro has really kicked his skills into another gear.

The story stalled in this chapter to focus on the action and that didn't bother me because as far as action chapters go, this was pretty good. I liked the uniqueness of the different mages, the giant fist like gadget and its potency against Natsu's flames, the sword with the stretching abilities, perfectly complimenting the sword skills and agility the mage wielding it displayed against Gray's ice attacks, and the sniper attacks that debilitated Lucy's arrow based summon.

I was afraid these guys would prove to be no different from the Garou knights, all talk and no bite. But i was pleasantly surprised when they put up a good fight. And, as mentioned above, the art in these action scenes was superb. One of the reasons i enjoy reading fairy tail is how fluidly displayed the action scenes are.

I do not know what to think about the Erza twist.

If all the characters end up reverting to their child like selves, i will not be happy. Those sort of clichés do not impress me. Clearly this is linked to the eternal flame which i assume Erza found located behind ice. whatever the case, i hope Hiro has a good story in store for me.

So far i have nothing to complain about.

MY RATING: 4/5, this was a decent chapter, short and concise. I cannot complain.

HIGHLIGHT: The fight between fairy tail and the hunters. Lucy looks like she is in for a beating once more. I am curious as to how they are going to deal with the sniper.

This was one of those fairy tail chapters that is somewhat hard to rate because technically, Hiro, just like last week, managed to create content that avoided the sort of pitfalls most shonen manga are known to fall into by applying some logic to his execution of events, yet the level of predictability and over all ‘fairy tail-ishness’ of the entire chapter left a lot to be desired, in the end producing a weekly chapter that was nothing more than meh.

In other words, not bad, yet not actually good enough to be excited.


Following Ultear’s sacrifice last week, the fairy tail team are able to use their brief one minute preview of the future to turn the tide of battle and begin their counter attack, with many avoiding previously fatal attacks and making headway against the enemy.

Natsu and Rogue are still going at it, with Natsu, despite acquiring new flames, making little headway against the shadowy attacks. In between taking punishment, Natsu tries to reason with rogue,but the future man is hell bent on saving the world by making it his. Natsu attempts to reach him via Frosch, his cat and the damage he could be causing to him as well as his present self. Future rogue however expects his past self and future self to eventually fade into each other with time. Frosch does not move him, as future rogue explains that he is not longer the man that plays with kitties. Besides, in his time line Frosch had died, and would die one year from then. His presence makes waves no within Rogue.

So Natsu continues to push against his much more superior enemy. At that point Atlas Flame unleashes a powerful flaming attack against Mother glare, which engulfs the entire dragon in a powerful wave of explosions.

Natsu being a fire dragon slayer, uses these explosions to his advantage, amplifying them and focusing them against both Rogue and the dragon and sending both flying to the earth.

Elsewhere, Wendy with Laxus’ assistance is fighting Zirconis. However Lucy has discovered a secret in the diary she discovered from her future self. Apparently destroying the eclipse gate is key to defeating the dragons. Based on future Lucy's theory, destroying the gate would affect the flow of events in time as they had happened so far and make it so that Rogue and his dragons never came through time, hence leading them to disappear.

However no amount of power delivered by Lucy is even able to dent the gate. It is then that the giant fireball that is Natsu, rogue and mother glare fall from the sky and slam into the gate, smashing it into pieces…


I didn’t bother reviewing last week’s chapter because i was somewhat annoyed by the result. Even though Ultear’s action followed a logical pattern, without breaking any of the rules of magic Hiro had set up (as i expected him to), and the whole one minute thing was an interesting addition to the plot, i was still irritated by how predictable the result was, that no matter how devastating the battle has been, fairy tail will come out unscathed.

This chapter followed a similar route. Rogue vs.. Natsu was more logical than i expected it to be, no nakama power ups and the like. Natsu was clearly on the losing end of the battle and it was the power of Atlas flame’s attack that brought the future mage down. IN a way you can give this to Natsu’s ingenuity, in realizing that he could use the explosion to his advantage. None the less, the predictability of it irritated me, that i knew that Rogue would lose and it happened so soon…it is hard to criticize the end of this fight. In fact it is the one thing i liked about this chapter. It was an unexpected end, yet…something was simply lacking. I wasn’t nearly as blown away or impressed as i hoped to be.

Maybe the battle should have ran a little longer. I for one will be pissed off if all those dragons disappear along with rogue. I do not think Hiro handled them well; he didn’t highlight each battle as much as he should have. Something has been missing from this war ever since the beginning. We didn’t see enough fairy tail vs. dragons fights, merely snapshots.

Anyway, my quarrel with this chapter comes in the form of Lucy. three things stood out as far as Hiro’s misshapen story telling is concerned:

1. What the hell did Lucy mean by her future diary. Last time i checked it was Levy who had the diary and was chronicling everything that had happened during the dragon festival, not Lucy; at least not according to the visions of the future we were shown.

2. I am sure Lucy had a diary but where in the story was it hinted upon that there was anything worth reading, at least as far as the dragons are concerned, that Lucy wrote down in her diary. We know that future Lucy woke up four days after the dragon incident and immediately leaped back into time four days in the past. So she pretty much missed most of what happened, so she couldn’t have known anything of use, not unless Hiro had told us somewhere that she took an extra day after waking to sit down and analyze everything which she then chronicled. The future Lucy we know leaped back in time immediately after waking, which means she couldn’t have written anything down and even if she could have, she didn’t know anything. Really, Hiro.

3. Exactly how does any of that mumble jumble she said about destroying the gate make sense. From what i understood, the idea was to destroy the gate so that it wouldn’t have existed in the future where rogue came from which meant that Rogue would disappear and nothing that he had done would have ever happened, including the dragons. How does that work, all that will have changed in History is that rogue came through and then the gate was destroyed, stranding him in the past. There is no way destroying the gate AFTER ROGUE HAD ALREADY COME THROUGH changes the time line.

I know the science of time travel is complicated and all that but that part isn’t. If they went back to the past and destroyed the gate days before future rogue came through, then that would make sense in cancelling everything rogue had done in the present because he wouldn’t have come through in the first place, but…really…i do not get what Hiro is playing at but none of what was said makes any sense.

I also think that if Lucy is right then the dragon problem was solved a little too easily. There can’t always be a magic weakness which, once used, solves everything. That’s what made the dragon incursion so exciting in the beginning; because i couldn’t see how they were going to solve the problem of 7 giant lizards with such a weak force. It wasn’t the conundrum i thought it should have been and which would have made this arc all the more epic.

Anyway, i await next week’s chapter with baited breath; despite all my complaints, i am still fighting to hold onto my faith in Hiro, even if its barely none existent, to surprise me (even though i doubt he can, with the predictable paths that he has been taking)

Rating: 2/5, really, this chapter was lackluster; almost good would be a better description in that Hiro executed a lot of the events skillfully, basically doing the same old thing but in a fresh way. yet he simply didn’t go the extra mile, something prevented this chapter and the last from achieving greatness and instead stranded them in slightly below average territory. I just wasn’t entertained and i am starting to worry about the future of fairy tail. Instead of looking forward to next week’s chapter i am worried and anxious about how bad it will be. On the plus side, if it turns out to be good, i will be that much more blown away.

Highlights: That natsu attack against rogue was kind of impressive, and the fight itself atop the dragon was pretty dynamic and interesting to watch.
