I'm only reviewing this after the first episode, so this is a pretty limited review, but I do feel confident in saying this is another classic addition to the FT franchise. If you have shit pseudo elitest pleb-core taste, stop reading and don't watch because you probably already hate Fairy Tail. Theres the door. Peace brehs have fun jerking off to Death Note.
If you have good taste and can enjoy generic tropes and ecchi, obviously depending on the execution, you should probably watch these OVA's.
There isn't much of a story in the first ep, its basically all ecchi and fan service, but there is a nice little plot for Wendy and Cana, and it does give you a better impression of Cana. She is probably one of the less redeemable characters in the guild, albeit still very attractive and nice at her core, so this was a welcome addition to her character's background. There's also some Gajevy here for all you fangirl shippers out there.
The first episode was very sexy. Lots of great boob action, which is to be expected, but this OVA steps it up a notch and is essentially competely ecchi. Great display of Erza's glorious behind here as well. The animation quality itself was pretty good, considering how sketchy Bridge has been with FT 2014's animation. No fight scenes here though so there's not much they could screw up, considering Mashima's masterful art style is a god tier blueprint for any studio. They also used a brighter color pallette, more akin to the original anime than the 2014 restart. I'm indifferent to the color choice normally, but considering how light hearted this OVA was, it was a nice touch.
Fairy Tail has a great cast and they delivered as usual. Not much in terms of a soundtrack because it was relatively fast paced, as to give as many characters as possible some adequate screentime. The OP and ED were pretty bad in my opinion, but its a 3 ep OVA so its understandable they wouldn't invest too much in those.
Most of character points were touched on in the story part of this review. To briefly restate those; there was some nice insight into Cana's character, a cute and happy Wendy plot, and some Gajevy. Gray was pretty funny early in the ep, Juvia was funny in the latter half. Everyone else was just there for hijinks and ecchi, which was done well.
I laughed and had an erection throughout, not sure what more you could ask for in an OVA. Great watch.
I'll openly admit, Fairy Tail has been hit or miss for me the pass couple of years. Well more or less the anime. When I first saw it I loved the hell out of it and watched the episodes on repeat. When the 2014 season came out I can't fully explain why but I just couldn't get into and paid more attention to the manga for the most part really. Fairy Tail has got a little on my nerves a little though. It just certain stuff that kept me off it for a couple of months. But this... I think this has a good chance of being pretty good
Hello all you people. For those who don't know I'm Josh and today I am reviewing (will be revised when all episodes air) the first episode of the Fairy Tail 2016 OVA. Let's do this people.
Story- It was mostly fan service and was based off a bet from the grand magic games between team A and Team B of Fairy Tail. I won't say who won cause I don't want to spoil it fully, but the losing team had to basically do what the others said. That being said going back to what I first said, the first episode was mostly ecchi and fan service. Don't worry though it is not Eiken level though. God forbid any anime go that low. There was a nice thing with Cana and Wendy which I did smile at and I did laugh at a couple of things. Overall the story gets a 7/10 from me
Art- Arts never been a issue with me in Fairy Tail especially with A-1 at the helm of it. It is pretty good and I loved it. Overall the art gets a 8/10 from me.
Sound- Being a OVA I wasn't expecting some great song. The opening and ending were alright though. Pretty average to me compared to the other fairy tail openings and endings. That might just be me though. Voice acting was good as always so I can't really complain about that though. Overall sound gets a 7/10 the voice acting being the main thing keeping that from being lower from me
Characters- Other than the main ones, I have always struggled with remembering the members in fairy tail and the other guilds. Some are eh to me, others are alright and the rest I have to see their faces or atleast called by their name for me to remember. But the first episode had pretty much the character I know about the most and care about the most in the first episode. Plus I'm not a big Cana fan and never have beenbut I will openly admit I liked her in this first episode and the moment she had with Wendy. I sincerely liked it. But overall I'm giving it a 6/10
Enjoyment- I enjoyed it. I have moved away a little from Fairy Tail but I sincerely enjoyed seeing this. Granted some weird ecchi and fan service scenes I did enjoy it. 7/10
Overall- It was a pretty good 1st episode in the OVA. I enjoyed it fully. I recommend you guys check this out. Overall the first episode gets a 8/10 from me. Granted some people might not want to see it because of the fan services, it is pretty good overall
