There are only a few good things about this episode…
Che, they had Lucy say the “I trust you!” line instead of Loke’s “What? I thought you trust me?” while he’s giving her a that confident smirk but they are still pretty cool in their team-up against Bicslow. I wish Loke would’ve charged at him and made the attack look like one awesome punch, though. Here, he just shoots some fireball-looking thing out of his fist. Yea, that’s nice.
And I did get a good laugh when Lucy whipped Bicslow good up just once when the idiot got distracted by Loke calling him weak. xD;
Raise your hand if you thought of the show when you saw this! xDD;;;
Meh, but it would have been cooler if he did some corny pose and shone in all the wall instead like he did in the manga. This anime really does downgrade the series by a lot. *not happy* >:/
Juvia taking herself out of the competition because she refuses to hurt her nakama. NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! JUVIAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *BAWLS* Dx<
And all she wanted was to be accepted by everyone because she loves Fairy Tail. Omg, Juvia, of course we all love you! *huggles Juvia*
Seriously, this part did get me very emotional while I was watching it. And Cana was so awesome, too. ;________________;
Because she gonna beat the crap outta that bastard Freed for hurting Juvia and calling her a Phantom woman.
I was this close to hating Freed this episode for all those things he did. Not only to Juvia, but Cana and Elfman, too. Don’t care how gay he is for Laxus, he still f*ckin’ pissed me off! D8<
And dude, we all know we need more Cana action with this screencap, amirite?! =3=
Anyways, finally, the BEST part…
In all her BADASS glory. Honestly, everybody in Fairy Tail is quite badass in their own right but Mira totally OWNS this term with this form. Yes, I’m very fangirl for Demon Mira. Haha! xDDDDDD
And just when she is about to land a huge permanent bruise onto Freed’s pretty face, she stops short after remembering Lisanna (OMG, BRB, *CRYING FOR LISANNA* ;_______;) because even though Freed acted like a total dick, he’s still a part of Fairy Tail and their comrade.
I also think she’s become aware of how crazy with rage when she was in Take Over mode and that probably reminded her of how Elfman couldn’t control his Beast Soul. If she really hurt Freed, she’d have more regrets.
Ohhh, Mira~ *huggles* ;____;
Really touching moment with the ray effects, lawl~
But really, yea, you better cry them damn man tears, Freed! Otherwise, I would not forgive you! *indignant sniff*
With that, Laxus is the only one left remaining.
Overall, this episode was a big improvement over last week’s thanks to better animation but the fights are still not impressive. Mira against Freed’s was okay but not great because I think they made her move too slow.
Alrighty, I didn’t see Gajeel in the preview so I’m assuming he got lost after he making that paper-doll phone call of his but he’ll show up sooner or later.
Anyways, HELL YEA, Mistgun (or is it Mystgun?) finally gets some important screentime and Erza’s joining in as well so oooo, I can’t wait to see that happening! x3 lol, but to be honest, I don’t think anyone would feel surprised no thanks to all the spoilers the OP gave us. And heck, they had to show us a little of Mistgun’s face and hair color, too. Surprise killer. xP
Don’t think I’m going to blog the next one, though. I dunno, the anime lacks the ability to spark interest in me like the manga does and it’s starting to feel like a chore doing all these posts so I think I might break away from that for a while until the next arc comes up…which I’ll only be blogging for Lucy’s epic battle against Angel. *shrug* :/
