I was hoping.... Yeah, what was I actually hoping for? That the writing would get better and the fan service take a step back? Guess I was hoping in vain.
7 chapters in and we've already lost one of the main characters' credibility. *sigh*
Minor spoiler about the "Quest" ahead..
Remember Natsu? The guy RAISED by a dragon? Who LOVED Igneel and thought well of dragons except for the evil ones running rampant? Yup, the same guy now sets off on a quest to "seal" some dragons without even bothering to ask why. And initially he thought he'd just beat them to a pulp because he didn't think
twice about what sealing actually meant.
WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY? If we think of Natsu, he should be the first one to jump in the defense of dragons and being vary of sealing dragons just for for the sake of sealing them.
So those dragons COULD destroy the world. Well, duh. Obvious for pretty much every dragon out there. Considering that the fictional world is pretty much peaceful, it means those dragons haven't set out to go on a rampage and terrorize everyone like Acnologia did. Yet Natsu sets out to seal them?! Give me a break. The real Natsu would have a blast searching for and meeting those dragons - not sealing them for having done nothing wrong.
Character relationships have not developed one bit. Rather the opposite if I may say so. The tiny couple scraps we got in the last chapter of FT were entirely ignored as well. No pairings here, nothing.
The fan service got to a level where at least one female needed to loose all her clothes twice a chapter. Give me a f---ing break. Just do a hentai spin-off and be done with it already! I don't mind if there's a bit of fan service now and then. Every demographic probably has that. But it's not necessary to have EVERY damn woman except for 2 Loli characters have E+ cups and apparently not enough clothing to cover her butt cheeks. It's just gotten tasteless. Sure, I'm a straight woman, so I may be biased. But even the guys I talked with were annoyed by the level of fanservice this has reached.You can't have blood and big wounds in this manga but this level of porn?! And it gets a PG-13 rating?! I mean... seriously...
FT could be so much more... Please just stop this farce and concentrate on the story and world... *sigh*
