Lucy's role in this movie was really pathetic. That crying in the end made me cringe.

The king/prince/whateverhewas was really stupid.

Origin of that Phoenix wasn't explained, or did I not pay attention enough?

Comedy was actually great. Had many laughs, especially when Gray got arrested for being half naked.

Soundtrack was 1000/10 as always. Especially the piece that started playing when Laxus and his team arrived. Sogood.

It was fine, had its moments. 6/10

great movie.. enjoyed watching it especially because the art and animation were waay better than in the anime episodes.

maybe then fairy tail would have way better ratings in japan when the movie guys would animate the anime.

8/10

It was way better than the manga. I wish Mashima find the balls to kill his character too in the manga.

Id say a 7 though the animation was for once good with FT (never thought those two would go hand in hand)

Hmm. Not bad.

Favorite small moment: Erza wearing the wedding dress.

I was expecting more of a battle between Natsu and Dyst... but I guess it isn't about Dyst since the Phoenix is the real enemy.

Dang. It almost made me tear up.

Also didn't expect that Geese would help them! Do I smell like a possible movie 2 where he may be a character??? It so foreshadows it when he mentioned, return the favor someday.

Hmm.....

Finally saw this today after waiting months after it came out in theater. Anyways, I thought the movie

It started off dramatically with the music and all. And holy shit, is that blood I see? That's a first for the movie. The OP song was okay I guess but the animation was NOT. I did not like the animation/visuals of this movie much.

>He's nude.
I lol'd.

>Thank you, undressing habit

For one thing, I didn't like this Eclair character at first. All cold and straight forward with anything. I find her to be naive and lacks a personality, not to mention being nearly useless. The fight scenes were okay I guess. Lol @ Juvia as usual with her beloved 'Gray-sama'

I guess the movie is about a phoenix stone that is a very important source. Rather, it is part of the main plot. Other than that, there's also some other revelations revealed regarding Eclair. Ultimately, I thought the movie was alright but wasn't too special or anything. 7/10.

For Fairy Tail's standard it was quite good. Was Mashima even majorly involved in the production of this movie? Because if he didn't then it make sense why the movie isn't as bad as the manga.

damn if only the animation of the TV series is this good then it will be amazing!!! laxus did not get a lot of action scenes though i hope their will be more movies eventhough the TV series will end soon

and Eclair's death is not that so sad, she live for like 400 years already and her death was given a happy ending too so its good imo

Finally got to see this Movie, and it was worth to wait for so long.
It was kinda lame in the beginning, but the battles were fun and I almost wet myself when Dragonforce was playing in the background.

I think it was good. Some funny moments. Some sad moments.
At least we got more Fairy Tail there.

and OMG making me cry at the end. I was holding my tears in. But then the list momon ghost appeared all happy to be back with Eclair and then the tears!
Poor lucy too. After making a new friend that she really liked and loses her. I felt bad for her. But happy for Eclair to have been able to make friends with Lucy. They are both good people.
But it was a good ending.

And Lucy didn't look fat. She looked thick-ish. But Grey looked thicked too, like whoa, too much, no thank you.

And haha at Juvia getting all jealous with that ugly homo.

Oh and Erza's hair looked different. But I'm guessing it was the coloring of the entire anime, but Erza's hair was easier to distinguish.

I still liked the movie though.

Instead of this whole zeref+guild conflict always going on I'd so much rather have the series to just be the guild going on several contracts, adventuring throughout the world.

The drawings are worse in this than the series. How the F is that possible?! :P
Not that the drawings is horrible in the series, it's just that it has become worse in the last 2-3 arcs there.
But I'm used to that the drawings and such is better in movies.

6/10
Not really good. :P
Lucy was so annoying in this, such a crybaby.
And the above stuff I wrote.

how can this be "R - 17+ (violence & profanity)"?!
this movie isn't violent, it only has a little blood, but nothing special: looks like a naruto and bleach movie. For example, Fullmetal Alchemist Movie 1: conqueror shamballa is "PG-13 - Teens 13 or older" and it has much more blood.

That rating of Fairy Tail movie, doesn't make sense


The FMA movie was released before the rule about too much blood was implemented in Japan.
So of course the rating system over there bacame more strict. That FMA movie would probably be 18+ now.

It wasn't bad by any means. It was pretty badass to see all the guild go (nearly) all out on the phoenix. The story was a little meh but hey it highlighted what FT as a guild is all about.

8/10 would of loved to see some more complex fight sequences but oh well. It is only 1.5 hours so can't really knock it too hard for that desire.

Idk what people expect out of a shounen series. BTW I love reading the review from a guy who isn't even current with the series....good stuff right there. And the other has her #1 as One Piece basically meaning I'm comparing FT to One Piece and there is no comparison...I don't smell the bias > > (One Piece movies were given 10, 10, and 9 out of 10)

I strongly appreciate Hiro Mashima's style of nudity, he keeps it beautiful and pure.
Basic Character anime anatomy.

Lucy was naked but only from the back (her body didn't contain adult naughty bits)

During the final battle of Erza vs Coordinator, each were shown nude during they're re-quipping transform, you could their whole breasts (but no naughty bits). Each of the ova's didn't show adult naughty bits. (Even for Gray)

By doing that he used basic character anime anatomy, by just drawing keeping it pure. Pure and Beauty is how fairy tail has always'd been. I love it. Watching/reading FT made start back drawing my own anime characters/comics again. I respect him that much.

Fairy Tail has always been my favorite anime/manga, I've watched/read every episode/manga they had. I'm a big fan. I appreciate Hiro Mashima for his hard work. He Rules!

I still have Fairy Tail on hold since episode 32 because I found it childish...
So why watching the movie? Usually movies are better (animation/design, not story) than the parent anime so... but this, THIS is UGLY! seriously! I don't remember watching a movie as ugly as this one since years! The girls are like cows or loli... lot of choice! I know, it's a shounen, it's for the fanservice... so let's look at the guy... I remembered that at least Gray was a bishounen and from what I read their are a time skip so he should be more adult, much more my type... but no, he's UGLY, as all the others -_-' and the clothes!!! even 100 yens shops sell better clothes than this... again, specially for the Gray's one!

And the story? they (and the supposed to be phoenix) kill hundreds of people but stupid cow Lucy's crying for stupid Eclair and don't want to supposed to be phoenix to be destroyed... yes, why not! let's destroyed the world because she want to protect so much a tsundere she met few hours/days before...

Yellow bird was also horrible! I didn't specially like the flying cat but the biggg head yellow bird is horrible and have absolutely no use except apologize for the stupid tsundere!

so if the movie was supposed to be good, I understand why I didn't like the anime... but I like Rave (and Plue)! Why not a new Rave anime and not not again bad Fairy Tail...

Finally watched it! And it was good. Amazing fight scenes and it really has a fairy tail feel to it. Just want to mention that I like the attack on the guild by the Carbuncle and Juvia's misunderstanding against that firing guy is funny.. and this one just so hilarious too:

My favorite being this.

The story wasn't too compelling, but I admit at some scenes I started to feel a bit teary eyed, but that didn't last too long.

Had some good things, but nothing superb to make me be shocked in amazement by it. Nice watch though for FT fans.

Oh my god, that was such a good movie. Gray finally gets arrested for exhibitionism, Erza wants to get married, the fights were great, but the ending was very sad.

Manly tears were shed........and proudly at that.

Seriously ?

Lucy getting overattached to any random and to no time , is really boring ( happens a lot in the series too ) -_- and i didn't give a damn about Eclaire and her bird -_-

All this movie had , were a few funny scenes, other than that , it was cliche and a waste of time

While you do notice they have put a lot more effort into animation and art in this movie but well with doing that they lacked the proper feel of Fairy Tail! The concept of the story is pretty nice but well IMO doesn't really fit the feel and style of Fairy Tail, the battle was so so and could've been made more way better! Either way not a bad Movie! I do wonder though when this story is taking place, before the parent's story last arc or after...

I like the movie a lot and did not expect many things from this movie, as a Fairy Tail anime watcher, I'm surprise. It feels like Hiro just shut up so many fans with "no death" thing in anime. Hiro should do more movies for FT, this guy can really come up with stories not related to the main series. XD

OMG@ bird dying... its like happy or chopper. NO friendship power lOL

and poor Erza, she should use that archer form more often. :O

I went with not much expectations and got a little surprised..
The art was nothing much.. characters felt a bit plain at the beginning too.
But the funny scenes and not to mention fan-service was damn funny.. I notice Lucy had a pretty huge butt. LOL
The fighting scene is good too just that it lacked their skills and moves.
The story is quite normal but after awhile I really got into the emotional scenes.. the feels.
All in all it was enjoyable to watch. :)

Erza looks fearsome before the OP but she was cute when she overdid it. I laughed at the comment about Erza's desperation for being a waifu^_^. "How desperate you have to be" xD.

Natsu's words at the end made my eyes teary. I want to give 10/10 but for some reasons I'll give it 9/10.
Was a sad movie, just like the ED song. But the fact that we are waiting for a new season I watched this at a good moment, it reminded me why I like Fairy Tail and it also brought back some memories from the series as of where would this fit in.

Somehow the colors looked a lit bleached out her. Not sure if it's the movie itself (can't remember noticing anything when watching the special though) or just the version i watched. Or it's just my imagination.

Overall usual Fairy Tail style, but that also means villians that totally overpower everyone, no matter how much training Natsu and co had in the past. It's okay with some of the dark guilds and other obviously powerful enemies, but any random guild no one has ever heard of? I mean, not only was it never mentioned in FT before, it wasn't even recognized in-universe.

On the other hand it also included some nice scenes, like Eclair headbutting Cream in the cell. Or Coordinator being like "how desperate are you" when she can't dispel Erza's wedding dress. I think she was right there. Who knows, maybe Erza can keep Jellal out of jail long enough to marry for once. Or they marry in the prison chapel..

I also think the connection between Dyst's past and his actions now is literally non-existent. No villain ever said "no" to living forever, especially if it's presented on silver platter like this, so the scene in the prologue was kinda pointless.

4/5 good film at all. Think about its the first one.
It was fun to watch and hat some nice fight scenes.
I noticed that erzas hair was a little bit different (which i liked) and gray had a way bigger body than usual. He was a little bit taller and had more muscels. So u could see a better different between him and natsu.
And the end.. well i liked it, it was a nice NaLu moment but only a little bit of NaLu because for real.. it was a FairyTailxLucy moment.
Natsu hugs her as a friend, just saying that he and the rest of the guild is there for her, that shes not alone. So yeah we see natsu hugging lucy *O* but more friendly than romantic.. u know.

P.S Oh and about dat "lucy looks fat" gosh.. go to your f****** top model shizznit.. annoying kids.. really.. only dogs want to play with bones.. and except that, she wasnt fat at all, not even a little bit. She just has DAT ass and DAT tits.. even if its too IMO.

and ive seen it with dubs and without and the dubs were BAD in the series it was ok but in the movie O.O

First of all, its Fairy Tail! How good would you expect the movie to be? I wouldn't say the art was better or worse, but it was different. Some aspects seemed more detailed and some seemed simpler.

I for one enjoyed this rendering of Lucy's figure ;-) Its a welcome difference from the TONS of boney anime backsides!

I don't know what I expected either.
In my opinion it's definitely worse than the series.
The progress happens too fast and we can't look into the story deep as we do in the series. I liked the animation, but this one felt rushed.

That was really just bad, and yea it's mainly because the story progresses too fast, it doesn't even have depth, no proper build up, no proper pay off, no nothing, everything is just.. for the action. I laughed when people from Fairy Tail were crying at the end, I don't even know what Lucy was crying for, the heck she barely interacted with Enclair, and she's the one who interacted the most with Enclair, which makes me feel like the "feels" was pretty superficial. Natsu and the gang barely even knew Enclair at the beginning, like, they only met her for like what, 5 minutes? They just decided to help her because they have nothing else to do? How convenient is that writing? They are not Luffy for God's sake, it's just so off. The art style too, it looks really different, and it's all weird.

"Is magic evil?" Now they are trying to sound deep. -_-

The bad guys don't even matter, and they took up quite a lot of screen time. The action was boring, bad guys destroyed FT headquarter, FT counterattacks later. For whatever reason they just.. win. "How desperate are you?", and Erza just win like that.. the heck I prefer nakama power over that to be perfectly honest. In the end I don't know Enclair enough to care much about her.

To me the movie is just bad.
