I hate absolutely everything about the spoilers I saw. I hate how Mashima ripped off Sorey's design (Zestiria, really Mashima?), I hate how he drew more stupid shit with Zeref/Mavis & I ESPECIALLY hate the color images with all the goddamn ships. All I wanted one last time out of this series (as I am officially done with it) was the freakin' Fantasia arc cover for Laxus (seeing as Mashima continues to forget he exists). All I got instead was an implied Miraxus knife in the back. Not like this...
And it really does feel like a knife in the back, that last one. Laxus was the Stronghold, man. The One Character who hadn’t yet been shoved into a hetero ship that made no sense beyond available men and women being together. The Miraxus fandom was annoying as fuck, what with their insistence that this bullshit was going to be so canon and their “masterlists” composing wafer-thin material that could be called evidence if you twisted it, bent it in a pretzel, and put it through a blender on puree. I now have the horrible, miserable feeling that they’re going to be vindicated literally right at the end.
Oh god…..is–is this what those Naruto and Bleach shippers felt like?
I’d gotten so used to brushing off Miraxus shippers that I never even imagined Mashima would give them the time of day.
