A lot of people are already complaining about the season finale but honestly the Smith family belittling and ostracizing Rick at the end was far more unsettling than anything I could’ve expected and there are a lot of loose ends to be answered in season 4
If anything I feel like this season ended on the biggest set of cliffhangers yet
I noticed Something that no one has talked about yet decided I might as well tell my thoughts:
Everyone is currently thinking that natsu cock-blocked Lucy and didn’t end up telling her what he was going to say (many saying he was going to confess)
I would like to add a possibility that seems possible,
Remember how several times before key moments in the manga were blanked out to hide the message behind it? I think this might be one of them, I know it sounds stupid but bare with me here,
I’ve seen A lot of people saying that there should’ve been another panel in between because it didn’t make sense to them, but that just isn’t the case here, instead let me walk you through what I think.
The circled picture in the first panel is the key element here. THIS is where natsu tells Lucy what he wanted to say, think about it. It would makes sense, Lucy gets shocked to what he says and is confused, and natsu gets flustered and tries to avoid talking about it.
So was it here, that Nalu became Canon? I don’t know, I personally would say so but others might disagree. The one thing I’m almost 100% sure of is that in that panel Natsu told Lucy whatever it was he wanted to say, and by the looks of it, Natsu had been wanting to say something about a topic for quite awhile now. I mean it was mentioned right as the final arc was beginning, and when Natsu “Disappeared” so there’s no way Hiro Mashima would leave it out.
I don’t care if Thiam becomes canon or not, well maybe I do a little, but there better be some Thiam in the last episode. I’m talking straight up heart eyes, and smiles and them being precious. Punching each other in the face is hot and all, but I need a little fluff.
