I love it when the minors get some of the spotlight.

Laxus's team seem really cool; Freed seems too smug (can't stand that character type), yet overall, they're interesting.
(I never even thought of tatooing my tounge)
As for Laxus, it's a shame such a sweet child grew up to become 'that'.:P
(you're never too old for a whopped backside however, remember that grandad)

I have to say, and I appologise in advance, but Juvia is really annoying me.:(
I don't know why, I just grew bored of anime fangirls a few years back.

Cana is hot, not that I'm promoting alcoholism, yet she's looking good considering.;)
Then again, she's young, she'll have to hope she age gracefully.

Possibly. This arc should reach it's end at roughly episode 50-52. They've removed all foreshadowing the manga had for anything beyond this arc. However they did add a small bit of their own foreshadowing for the next arc.

I suspect that the initial deal was for 50 odd episodes to cover up through the end of this arc, and anything beyond that would depend upon how successful the series was.

What we're seeing could go either way. The decision could have been made to extend the anime past this arc, and the removed material could have remained removed either because the long term fate is still uncertain, or because the episodes were already completed and it simply wasn't cost effective to go back and rework several new minutes of material back in. Alternatively the series could be ending with this arc, and the small bit of foreshadowing they added was to give themselves a reasonable amount of wiggle room if another arc was greenlit.

It's impossible to confirm anything at this point, as no announcement on the length of the series has ever been made.

I hope Mystogan will show up to coming few episodes, always wanted to see him fight.

Those 3 new folks don't seem like the types that belong in Fairy Tail and neither does Laxus for that mater.
One thing i am wondering about tho if Laxus and his bodyguards are so strong then why don't they make there own guild?
It should be easy with there power.

She also has the same powers as Medusa from Greek mythology, only difference is that she doesn't have snakes as hair.

Laxus sees Fairy Tail as his rightful inheritance since his grandfather is the leader.

OK, I didn't mind Laxus so much up to this point. I even liked his "a-hole" personality a little bit, but when you f*ck up my beauty contest with some of the hottest chicks in anime... then you gotta go DOWN! Natsu, Gajeel, get out of that barrier and f*ck him up!

Great episode by the way, I love the idea of having the guys fight amongst themselves to get their girls.

I find it more interesting that Natsu is voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara, and that Laxus is voiced by Katsuyuki Konishi. It's nice to see them play opposite each other again ^_^.

one generally dislikes a character that is designed to be disliked. he is no more of a bad guy than a bear chasing a running kid.


i suppose this will turn out to be good. in the end he can just make the runes make him the winner even if he were to lose. whatever the case it all turns out the same.

Oh, you're right. I haven't heard of Kamina's voice for awhile, so I didn't catch it. But it was easy to hear to Natsu's voice.

It's sad to see the show might be ending soon, what with all the rushing that I see the anime doing. It's a shame because I've had such high hopes for this series since I started getting into it about half a year ago. I realize Fairy Tail isn't exactly 'Big Three' material, but it's pretty damn good in its own right. If I remember correctly, FT was ranked like 4th in popularity for shonen series on OneManga, right below the Big Three. That is quite an accomplishment, even if OneManga rankings aren't exactly official, so to say.

I hope I'm completely wrong and that the anime will continue on past this arc.

I think it will end with this arc and to be honest i want it to end because it could have been better than this so i would like to see it end now and then hopefully get a better remake in a couple of years(like fma).

Damn, Fairy Tail's girls are so top notch. I was drooling a bit when they changed into swimsuits and especially Erza's outfit <3. But Laxus had to ruin it, grrr. Anyways, glad this arc is starting off pretty well, although the removal of the other parts of the manga may indicate that this is ending since those are kinda necessary for the future plot. But there is some hope since they did some foreshadowing back in Erza arc, though only manga readers noticed that. Argh, thinking about it won't help. Let's just kick back and watch the royal rumble.

Nice casting with the VAs. Archer as Freed and Kamina as Laxus. This is going to be sweet :) Anyone know who are the VAs of the other Raijin Tribe?

I'm don't see why they decide to show the Raijin Tribe's introduction of taking down an entire guild but they skipped out on Laxus defeating a guy at a bar. I mean, no matter how you look at it, even if the former was for the sake of introduction, it's still also for the sake of making them look powerful. Plus them beating up a guild for making fun of Fairy Tail ties in perfectly with Laxus's skipped bar fight scene.

Im actually LOL while reading your thought xDD

Fried Justine huh? i was thinking that...he s the coolest character in FAIRY TAIL ! 0.0!
I hope this will not be the last arc for the anime....cause' most people say that this is the last arc for fairy tail anime and maybe 50-52 comes to an end..

however , if they continue on the next arc of ORACION SEIS , it will be the greatest hit of all!

Someone needs an eye doctor and fast.

Anyway e really did skip a few manga chapters but this episode i guess wasn't that bad. Goth loli for the win lol.
Nice place for your fairy tail tattoo Juvia.
And that other guy has it on his tongue.
It makes you wonder what other places those tattoos might be.

Laxu's game leaves me indifferent. His just an idiot with stupid ideas.

smokes said:

Yeah, i guess this is the last arc since they are skipping chapters and all. It probably means they are running out of episodes.

Have you not noticed that the guys making this anime are idiots? Actually that goes for almost all big shounen titles.


BTW, full pantie views are not allowed on TV i see.
