THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Another new OP song huh? Imo though, this one is better than the previous although lacking against the first OP song of this series.

First half felt slow but the pacing picked it up. This is also probably imo one of the better episodes of this filler arc as it takes on a much more serious mood. Some parts still felt dragged out though especially with the cheesy dialogues. Episode also felt more like a boss fight with the transition. Heh, I'm not sure when this arc will end soon but FT is back on track now.

Lucy and Yukino's battles finally ending.

Celestial Spirit King going on a rampage to destroy his own world and all of it being a plot to gain immense power.

I do look forward a little to perhaps the king's new form? Anyways, the fight should be decent!

Arc needs to finish XD

Is it just me or does it feel like the Op and Ed are getting more and more english incorporated into them?

I absolutely adore the new opening. Much better than Mysterious Magic!

Also loved the twist in this arc involving the Celestial Spirit King. 3 Episodes to the end of the arc and then we adapt the Omake chapters from the manga, super excited!

Schedule for January and February:

The new OP is vast improvement from the previous and the same can be said about the episode as a whole.

Fairy Tail starts the new year with a boom, a new OP and ED, and a great new episode.

Great new opening, I liked it. It looks like just like I thought we ain't getting back to the manga till April, which is cool with me, give the manga more time to get ahead and avoid another hiatus, this arc will be over at the end of January, February we have some omake chapter adaption, I can't wait to see the Natsu and Asuka one, and we will have a one shot anime original as well, as for March I don't know, perhaps some stand alone that will involve Sting, Rogue, Doranbolt, Lahar, and best of Kagura and Millianna. I hope Kagura appears.

As for this week's episode, just like the last anime original arc, Fairy Tail been fighting the wrong side along, but if the Zodiac spirits would have said something all of this could have been avoided.

Who thought Ophiuchus was just as suicidal as the rest of them. If this is just some flip version of Ophiuchus like the others, is the real Ophiuchus female? Maybe she has a thing for the Spirit King and just wanted his attention. Ophiuchus was actually pretty awesome, I have to say she is the one of the saving graces of this arc.

I told you the Celestial Spirit King was behind this, what a jerk, he has some redeeming to do, perhaps fight the king of the demons and than we can forgive you. Ha ha ha. Seriously, I can't wait to see the Celestial Spirit King's evil form. After some rough patches, Fairy Tail has been getting better, this is awesome.

As for the ED, it is a nice catchy song, and we get some focus on the corrupted Zodiac Spirits, better do it now, because we won't ever see them again.

So next week, we are headed closer to the end. I am thinking we have two more episodes of fighting, than the last one will be an epilogue. Than back to the omakes, and to the Sun Village in April.

New opening was way better than the MYSTERIOUS MAGIC crap.

I will admit that the episodes of the arc are improving. I mean who would've guessed that it was the king behind this thing the whole time. Although I find it weird that Orphiuchus was just willing to do all of this without a reason O.o.

If they kind of made episodes like these then this arc could've been at least fine. So far it's been average at most.

Anyway, just 3 more weeks until this arc is over. I don't know about everyone else, but i'm excited for the omake chapters to be animated. I found them very entertaining. Yeah, I guess it could be seen as more stalling, but i guess it's going to require patience on our part.

So the Celestial Spirit King is nuts, on a rampage and the one who planed this, Ophiuchus is doing his bidding cause she's madly loyal to him and the 12 spirits were trying to escape the King.

I like the opening song and I love the visuals, the outfits of the characters in the beginning are from manga covers and from Hiro Mashima's twitter pictures. Asuka and the snow globe and the light novel in it as well. I can't wait for those to be adapted.

The fact that we got a new opening means that this filler arc is only half over 0_o

I give up. I'm going to put this on hold -_-

No, the filler arc is over in 3 episodes. The rest of the stuff in the opening is from omake chapters and the light novels based on Fairy Tail, meaning its canon stuff.

Is there anyway to read this light novel online? Are there any fan translations? I can't seem to find a page on MAL for it.

I didn't like the new OP that much...
Although the real mastermind was a little unexpected, the episode was still meh.
As for the ED, I like it.

It's listed there, but there are no discussions specifically about the second light novel, its just bunched together with the first one.

They completely ruined the epicness of Urano Metria this episode. Trust filler to do that.

New ED and OP are decent, particularly the ED. It's rare for Fairy Tail to have an ending that I actually like.

New OP is much better than the last one, but still has nothing on Masayume Chasing or Strike Back.

I like the OP and ED better than the last ones. Loved the part where they show the guys with a mafia look and the girls with a fancy look.

Loved it when Happy said "So basically, he's a raging demigod jackass, whose sense of reason was tossed out the window, right?" XD

Looks like there is no spoilers that I'll be aware of, since I don't read manga. Just some big monster thing that I can't tell if it's filler, a side story, or canon.

Bah. New OP only has novel & omake cotent which means the new arc won't be starting for a while longer. Oh well. I'd hoped it would start after the specials aired.

Episode was okay. I don't get why Yukino didn't try talking to Ophiuchus though. And I don't exactly understand it too well. Did Ophiuchus get corrupted too? Or was she just always psycho? Wouldn't surprise me if it was the latter.

This episode was better than most of this arc, though lotso of stuff still doesn't make sense.

Given that Yukino had a key to call Ophiuchus, why not force shut her gate with a new key like the others? At the very least, she would not gather more power.

Well, at least they explained what happend to the spirit king..sort of.
New OP & ED are okay, but nothing to remember.

And Urano Metria was ruined. The incantation was...okay. Barely, but okay. But then it was just a bright flash and it was over. Do they have budgets assigned to abilities, and the first two times took everything or what?

Eff you FT for loosing everything that made you good. You need your manga. This shit is terrible.

And yes they ruined Urano Metria.

That is like Lucy's ultima move and it was literally a flash of light following the incantation which was severely lacking as well.

So there's a new OP and ED, which are good. I listened to them both a second time before thinking what to say.

The Celestial Spirit King's whereabouts is still unknown. Ophiuchus dedicating it all she has done for the Celestial Spirit King. Fairy Tail should be more precise in concluding all this stuff since they have Hisui.

This filer arc seems to be getting better as it is hopefully coming to an end.

I liked the new OP, especially the animation of it.

Things are picking up. I'm anticipating the battle in the next episode.
I really want to hear more of the main OST 2014 in their fights.
Let's go Fairy Tail!

Did every hate the last op? I though it was catchy lol. Kinda wierd that theyre already using a new one but it kinda keeps it fresh unlike the current one piece one XD we've been shining and running for god knows how long. Arc could've been much better if Wendy and kana had actual fights and something....different.... For Lucy. Episode is really picking up the arc tho hyped for the end of this one and start of next since everyones praising it so much.

I'm not so concerned about the fact that the filler arc is almost done. The point is, I want full version of new ending single. And I daresay I'm not the only one. Come on, it is really catchy!)

i'm still teetering between liking it and thinking it was okay, so i don't think you'll "get jumped" for saying you don't like it. everyone is entitled to their own opinions, after all. i think a lot of the people are just happy that it's not MYSTERIOUS MAGIC anymore. ^^()

Ahh looks like I'm finally caught up...When I got myself caught up with the dubs at episode 164, it took me forever to decide to watch the subs, because I love the dubs, but I couldn't wait. Now I'm caught up with the subs and it's happening all over again xD 4 days until the next episode...

Dat OP is really cool, I mean the animation! The song is alright-good. I prefer Mysterious magic but with that coolness, can't complain. Seems like they are going to animate the Gruvia special. Meh at least, it was well-written.

The episode was better than the last one, too.

Love the ED A LOT, so western rock-ish <3

It comes out on Jan 28th IIRC. And no, you're not the only one; I keep having to fight the urge to listen to it repeatedly so I don't get sick of it before the full release.
