Lmao, what the hell is Juvia thinking? Seriously

>Ice Make Mouse
LOL.

Hell, I'm glad they extended Kagura's fight a little bit int his episode. She's one of my favorites to win this tournament. But ya, Kagura being badass Kagura. :3

Finally, the match I've been waiting for. Sabertooth vs. Fairy Tail. It's go time. I wonder how this entire match will be animated because so far, Natsu and Gajeel just completely went to attack.


Yup, shit's about to go down ;)

For a tag battle, there isn't much teamwork happening in the first fight. Honestly, I was expecting more when they said that Lyon hadn't showed his powers. Is it the same concept of being able to have more than one action at the same time (like how Lucy is with her celestial spirits)?

I'm curious as to what Lucy might have told Natsu (ahhh!! my NaLu feels!!), but since Natsu smiled with confidence, it would probably just be a simple "all the best" in her own words. ~(O.O~)

This is the best they could do with the fight because it's literally just 1 panel in the manga >.<

Seriously, was that Lyon's "top" strength? Summoning 3 ice creatures simultaneously is pretty impressive and I get that Kagura's strength is on par with Laxus' (probably) but for him to be defeated so easily was just... meh, color me disappointed.

Shipper mode ACTIVATE! I'm going to dive in the NaLu love that's going around because NALUUUU n_n

But the sad thing is they won't get together until FT actually ends and by that time nobody will like it anymore because Mashima will have buried his series in shitty arcs *coughGMGcough*

Hahahahaha.

No.

Anyway Anime team really wants to hype Kagura up to heaven, in the Manga the fight on has like 1 panel and and looked much more balanced. They seriously outdo her Gravity magic here because she has never shown to be this impressive with this magic the Manga.

I didn't like how long the first fight was. The title is Battle of the Dragon Slayers, but there was hardly any thing good about the dragon slayers in that episode, except for the 30 seconds they fight before the episode ends.

I kinda felt like they needlessly extended the first fight when they could have made the FT vs. ST fight take up more of the episode.

The Dragon Slayer match!!!
Although I kinda hate how they removed bits when it started. Very well, I expect a seriously good animation for this fight!

They did great with this episode especially on the Lyon vs Kagura fight. While the manga trolled us with a 1 page nonsense we got the full version here. Even the intro to the Dragon Slayer fight is fantastic. And the music is very appropriate in every scene, I'm totally impressed, this is the best episode in a looooonggg while.

Who said natsu and lucy will never be together because of mashima's shitty arc? Fyi, i love the current arc, and don't
You worry, natsu will never die, that's shounen for you, it's

Bad extension. It made Lyon look like a joke.
That was horrible.

> Battle of the Dragon Slayers
> 30 Seconds
> Huh?

Best part was definitely Igneel.
The fight should have just started next episode rather, it lost impact and was not nearly as good as the manga.

No.


So there's no way Kagura's stronger than Laxus?

She's not even close to his level... and even that's a understatement.

man the first fight was just plain boring, but I guess they did with it what they could.

finally time for the main event. Natus and Gajeel at least have some time work so far. They need to take it to them.

The manga made the Lamia Scale vs Mermaid Heel battle seem more even than the anime did... Apparently someone likes Kagura, because she was a fraction of a second away from schooling Lyon in this ep. (she apparently can stop midflight motion on a dime, though. XD) ^^; In the manga Yuka and Milianna were both still standing, too. Hm. I guess whatever, it doesn't really change the outcome at all. ^^;

I enjoyed this episode, but I'll have to wait till next week to see what I really wanted to see!

I don't know if there's some definitive evidence in the manga, or anything that might suggest that Laxus > Kagura, but i've always considered him and Erza pretty much equal, and kagura seems just as strong, if not stronger than Erza, especially the way she beat down Yukino. And the fights in Fairy tail aren't always decided by who's the most powerful. If anything Laxus was overpowered when he fought Raven Tail. Again, excuse or correct me if i'm wrong, I don't read the manga and don't want to be spoiled.

Consider this about Laxus. Makarov considered him to be the next Master but held back since his personality before the conclusion of the festival arc was the worst and would make him a very bad guild master. After that he was exiled so he was no longer an option.

So it's not a surprise Laxus is fuckin strong if even his gramps thought that in terms of power he would be more than suited for the job.

This episode was horrible imo.In last 3 episodes they shoud have extended the tag team fight and left some time to wrap up the season.Lyon is overrated(just like Gray) and so is Kagura.That unibrow guy or whatever and Milliana are pretty weak so I don't know why you guys liked that overextended fight that much.

This episode just seemed to drag on, love it how the title is about dragon slayers fighting and its only for 30 seconds.

Also glad that they are putting fairy tail on Hiatus at ep 175 instead of shitty fillers so that the manga can progress more.

Man they extended the fight between Lamia Scale and Mermaid Heel for too much, more then half of the episode with some bullshit.

Looking forward to the Dragon Slayers battle, they are hyping this fight too much, but the manga readers know that we'll all get trolled.

I do think that the Lyon/Yuka vs Kagura/Millianna match was good that it was extended but imo, it was extended too long. I thought that they would show Lyon to be slightly more stronger than what happened in the anime. It made Lyon seem like scrap.

Laxus has been and always will be stronger than Erza even with her

Remember the Battle for the Strongest of Fairy Tail Arc. Laxus could have wiped out the entire guild by himself excluding a healthy Makarov/Gildartz. In this tournament Jura is considered the strongest, Laxus is probably second, while Kagura/Minerva/Erza/Gajeel/Natsu are a level below these guys and then the others.
The loneliest people are the kindest. The saddest people smile the brightest. The most damaged people are the wisest. All because they don't wish to see anyone else suffer the way they did.

Hmm the battle wasn't as good as I expected, although Kagura was still epic. I can't wait for the moment she draws her damn sword and goes full op.

I somehow like Rogue and his cat... so I'm cheering for Rogue, Gajeel and Natsu in the next battle.

Another thing I gotta note about the FT vs ST fight so far. Minimal if not no use of those annoying magic circles. I approve greatly of this change.
