“Can I ask you a personal question?”
“I don’t know what the signals are like in your culture, but in mine, when you spend an evening helping someone take apart vibrators to smuggle into a foreign country, it’s a pretty good indication that it’s okay to get personal.”

Fairy Tail Chapter 539 Review

Ladies and Gentlemen, this freaking chapter

Our cover is the GMG arc. Maybe this whole conclusion will turn out like the GMG arc, starts off good, then becomes bad, then becomes absolute garbage.

So we open on the random where Blue Pegasus is stationed. As they all begin to notice cracks in the sky.

Y’know what makes Jenny’s tears more sweet, the fact that Anna and Ichiya don’t show up in this chapter meaning there is a possibility they didn’t survive the christina explosion. I know I shouldn’t expect them to be dead but honestly wouldn’t that be a little interesting?

I just love all these looks of absolute terror.

My friends the king is back

Okay questions. First I understand eating the magic but the way Anna described it sounded like this wasn’t just magic but it actually was a space in between time, while Zeref said it’s overflowing with time magic which means Acnologia can eat it wouldn’t it still be hard and take time to get out of a rift in time and space? Second I never thought controlling the magic you ate was a problem for DS, in fact I believe it’s been a signature thing about how the DS body will adapt and incorporate what it’s eaten. In fact, we see that later on. Third I’m really just trying to hope this isn’t a new “level” of power because he’s already strong enough as it is, so I’m interpreting it as he’s just refueled himself from using up a lot of magic.

Acnologia whips out a technique called “Eternal Flare” (which sounds like he stole it from Atlas Flame) but hey lets check it out!

Thats… Thats my king’s roar! Okay if people don’t know I wrote a “How I would end Fairy Tail” and it has a big fight with Acnologia and he uses a technique I thought up called “King’s Roar” where he uses his breat attack (Y’know the energy blasts) and rains hell down upon the everyone. This is the same thing! This actually reminds me, there’s a fellow reviewer of mine named @ac-fairytail who made a prediction list and surprisingly a good chunk of her predictions actually came true. Well now with this our suspicions about Mashima just spending time on tumblr might actually be true.

Also literally 2 pages are devoted to destruction caused by this technique. On the one hand I like this for creating this sense of scope but on the other it seems like this eating away more page space than it needs to.

So we cut to Erza sinking and wow this is pointless, I mean regardless of the fact that she is basically invincible we see that focusing on her actually isn’t even for the future of the plot. I mean you are probably not going to do a damn thing this climax, Erza.

See! Wendy is taken! Wouldn’t it make more sense to focus on the character that will actually have an effect on not only the future chapters but also the character who we’re suppose to feel scared for? No lets focus on Erza again!

So apparently eating time magic gave Acnologia Ban’s fox hunt because we see he’s just grabbing all the DS from first, second, and third gen. Also this scene with Lucy and Gray, first off my god the re writing ENDs’s book actually worked? The hell? To make sense of this I’m still under the theory that maybe there was an organic link transfer to Lucy from the book and that’s why Natsu didn’t die. Second, wow are they so oblivious to not notice the glowing light just sucked away their friend. Also this is my other problem with the chapter and it’s something we will get into post chapter follow up. 

So Natsu (And most likely the other DS) have been taken to this newly forming structure in the ravines of time where we see human Acnologia. Okay I made jabs saying that Natsu vs Zeref is just ripping of Haru vs Lucia. Well maybe I was wrong. With being inside this area of time and a black sky plus the falling stars, this is basically a pseudo version of the star memory battlefield in Rave.

Post Chapter Follow up: This was honestly an okay chapter. What it does good is very obvious, it brings back Acnologia but what I really need to give credit to this chapter for is building tension. Watching just how big the strength of the widespread destruction is, plus the sheer terror of this situation really draws the reader in.

Now even though it’s okay it has some very hard to ignore flaws, the first being the moment of focusing on Erza. Why would you focus on someone who will most likely not be involved in the climax and is someone we obviously don’t fear will get taken by Acnologia. Now this isn’t me hating Erza it’s me hating the structure of the story telling. Speaking of structural problems, it bugs me is this chapter in context with the previous one we saw Natsu disappear then the cracks in the sky, but that’s not how the linear story telling went, the cracks are happening before the disappearance. It bothers me that Hiro wanted to have his cake and eat to because last chapter he did “death” of Natsu and the cliffhanger was the cracks even though that’s events out of order. It’s not even like this is so nitpicky that it doesn’t need to be fixed because in Tartaros when Mashima had the dual plots of Erza stopping face and Natsu facing Mard Geer he made clear distinction in the time difference of the events told out of order.

The biggest problem I have is the Acnologia plot convenience beam coming and grabbing all the dragon slayers. While I’m happy that we may get DS vs Acnologia we still don’t have any clue of what the DS have been doing and why we should now care. Wouldn’t it be so much better to use that breather chapter to check up on all these guys? What has happening to crime sorciere, how did they feel about Jellal just blowing them off or are they okay with it? What’s been going on with Sting and Rogue after their Larcade fight? With Gajeel and Laxus we see what they’ve been up to but the others are just being grabbed without enough build up of why we should care about the characters if their just going to be thrown into something with no build up, other than they are dragon slayers.

This chapter isn’t not bad it really is pretty decent, but it’s failings are still very note worthy.

Final Verdict: 5/10

  • Average but done decently
  • good tension building
  • But some poor structure

ELEANOR: A LOW TOUCH STUNT

I will preface by saying that I came to the fandom in January 2015, so no, I did not live through Eleanor 1.0. 

Think about Eleanor 2.0. She’s the lowest touch stunt you’ve ever seen. She doesn’t have to actually spend time with Louis for them to be perceived as together. They’re trading on the “history” of Louis and Eleanor to get mileage. If he was with a new beard, he’d have to build all of that from scratch. Now, every like/SM interaction has legs. She can get photographed alone. He has to spend almost no time with her.

Maybe it’s just easier?

imagine rapper line working on some new songs in the studio and when hoseok reads through namjoon’s drafts he lets out this exasperated sigh and says, “are you rapping about your dick? again? seriously namjoon, at this point i’m just wondering if it’s really as big as you say–” before yoongi pipes up absent-mindedly “yeah, it is” then going completely still when he realizes what he just said but it’s too late bc hoseok’s face is already morphing from confusion to realization then finally to Pure Horror as he whips his head from yoongi to namjoon, who is looking Very Smug and Filthy while watching yoongi get 3 shades pinker, “i don’t even want to know” is all hoseok says as he scrambles to put his headphones on before namjoon can even throw in a dirty comment

After school.
  • Kise: Shoot, I forgot to bring my umbrella.
  • Kuroko: Kise-kun...
  • Kise: Ah! Kurokocchi!
  • Kuroko: What are you doing here, Kise-kun?
  • Kise: Ahaha, I forgot my umbrella at home and didn't check the morning forecast.
  • Kuroko: That's so lame.
  • Kise: How mean-ssu! Ah! Could it be that Kurokocchi also forgot his umbrella?
  • Kuroko: Yes, I forgot mine. The rain starts late after school and I didn't know I'll be spending the whole afternoon in the club so I didn't bring one.
  • Kise: Oh.. It's so like you, Kurokocchi.
  • Kuroko: I guess we have to wait for the rain to stop.
  • Kise: Y-yeah, we should.... Uwaah, Kurokocchi and I? I can't calm down. I can't calm down.
  • Aomine: Ouu! It's Tetsu and Kise! Why are you guys here?
  • Kuroko: Aomine-kun, Murasakibara-kun, Akashi-kun, Midorima-kun, hello.
  • Aomine: Oi, Kise...
  • Kuroko: Don't disturb him. He's mumbling incoherent words.
  • Aomine: Hah?
  • Midorima: Unbelievable.
  • Kuroko: It's rare for Midorima-kun to forget his umbrella.
  • Midorima: I didn't. Akashi destroyed it.
  • Aomine: Why would you do that?!
  • Akashi: It's lonely without Shintaro.
  • Midorima: That reason is way too suck, Akashi!
  • Murasakibara: Arara, I've seen this situation before.
  • Aomine: Hah?
  • Murasakibara: Group of friends, stuck in the school, were no one else is there, and after that... the following days, they were a goner.
  • Kuroko: ... Aomine-kun, what are you doing?
  • Aomine: Uh, I thought there's something on your back so I checked it out.
  • Midorima: Ridiculous, there's no such thing like-- kyaah!
  • Everyone: ...
  • Kise: That's a loud shout, Midorimacchi.
  • Aomine: Ah, you're back from the reality.
  • Murasakibara: But that's like a girl shout~
  • Midorima: It-It was not me.
  • Akashi: It was clearly you, though.
  • Midorima: Enough. We need to think of a way to get out of here.
  • Akashi: With a strong lighting blow a while ago, I don't think it's safe to wait here.
  • ----
  • Kise: Why are you guys even here? And where are we going?
  • Midorima: To the shogi room. There's plenty of board games and books there to keep us entertain.
  • Aomine: You're fantasizing about Tetsu and you, huh? Oi, Kise, that kind of scene only happens in Shoujo Manga.
  • Murasakibara: Yeep~ Like one of us will be gone.
  • Midorima: Why are you so into that kind of plot?
  • Akashi: We have to hurry or else Atsushi's theory might come true.
  • Aomine: You're scared, aren't you? Haha! Tetsu, Akashi is-- Tetsu?
  • Everyone: ...... It came true!!!
  • Kise: Uwaaah, Kurokocchi?! Where are you?!
  • Midorima: This is ridiculous. That guy is hard to find.
  • Akashi: For now, let's find Tetsuya.
  • Kuroko: ... But, I was right behind Murasakibara-kun. I guess I'll head to the shogi room first.
  • ----
  • Kise: It's impossible. We searched every room and we couldn't find him!
  • Aomine: Tetsu is not a kid to get separated from us, though.
  • Murasakibara: It's happening!
  • Midorima: Like I said, why are you so into that?
  • Akashi: Let's split into two groups. Shintaro and Murasakibara in the gym and lower floor of the school. Daiki, Ryouta, and me will be on the upper floor. Got it?
  • Everyone: YEAH!
  • ----
  • Midorima: This is hopeless. What if that guy ran away and went home?
  • Murasakibara: But it's raining hard outside. See?
  • Midorima: Kuroko is not the type to forget things, though.
  • Murasakibara: But he was waiting with Kise-chin in the entrance. Besides, Mido-chin, why are you holding onto my shirt?
  • Midorima: I might get lost.
  • Murasakibara: Eehh?
  • ----
  • Aomine: Wow, this floor is scary as hell. None a single light was on.
  • Kise: It's creepy but don't you think Kurokocchi is scared?
  • Akashi: It's the opposite.
  • Aomine: You have no idea what happened back when we visited this haunted house. Tetsu did most of the work, though. He scared the hell out of us.
  • Kise: Kurokocchi does?!
  • Akashi: Hold on... What's that?
  • Aomine & Kise: W-where?
  • Akashi: Is that a light?
  • Aomine: Oi, Akashi, don't scare us like that.
  • Kise: I'm scared-ssu.
  • Akashi: It's coming...
  • Everyone: NYAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!
  • ----
  • Midorima: What's that?!
  • Murasakibara: What's what, Mido-chin?
  • Midorima: Didn't you hear that? Someone was shouting!
  • Murasakibara: Eehh? I didn't hear that.
  • Midorima: O-oi, Murasakibara. How about we head to the shogi room and just wait for them to come back?
  • Murasakibara: But Kuro-chin might not know the way to the shogi room. And Mido-chin...
  • Midorima: What?
  • Murasakibara: Please walk on your feet. Don't cling on my neck.
  • ----
  • Aomine: Haaa.. haaaa... t-that was.. what-what was that?!
  • Kise: It's a ghost-ssu! It's a ghost-ssu!!
  • Aomine: Stop shouting you stupid! It might be Midorima or Murasakibara!! Right Aka--
  • Aomine & Kise: ....
  • Kise: A-Aominecchi...
  • Aomine: Man, this is so troublesome!!
  • Kise: It's like Ghost-san is slowly taking our friends one by one-ssu!
  • Aomine: That's impossible! Akashi might ran to a different route! And don't call a ghost like that!!
  • ----
  • Akashi: Ha... haaa..... haaaaa... Now, where am I? Huh? Eh? Haaa?! Tetsuya?!
  • Kuroko: Hello, Akashi-kun.
  • Akashi: Wait, huh? Where were you?! We were looking for you.
  • Kuroko: I didn't go anywhere, though. I was right behind Murasakibara-kun and all of you suddenly ran to a different way. So I decided to wait in the shogi room.
  • Akashi: All this time...
  • Kuroko: Yes, Akashi-kun. I came to get you guys but Aomine-kun and Kise-kun ran away from me. That hurts.
  • Akashi: They thought you were a ghost.
  • Kuroko: That's so mean.
  • ----
  • Murasakibara: Mido-chin, Mido-chin. Is that I think it is?
  • Midorima: Oi, Murasakibara, don't scare me!!
  • Murasakibara: No, look. It's a light. It's coming over to us.
  • Midorima: U...uhh.. Run, Murasakibara! Run!
  • Murasakibara: Huuh? Why? And stop pulling my hair!
  • Midorima: Ngghh... It's coming over!! It's getting closer! Run I said!
  • Murasakibara: I'm not a horse! And stop tightening your legs around my waist. It's killing me!
  • Midorima: It's here!!
  • Murasakibara: Eeehh. Arara~ It's Kuro-chin.
  • Kuroko: Hello, Murasakibara-kun, Midorima-kun.
  • Midorima: Kuroko?!
  • Akashi: Wow, Shintaro. You got Atsushi to give you a piggy back? He never agrees to let me do that.
  • Murasakibara: He forcefully do it, though~
  • Midorima: How did you find him, Akashi?
  • Akashi: He found me instead. Besides, he didn't literally disappear. He was right behind
  • Atsushi.
  • Midorima: Uh, I see.
  • Murasakibara: Since we found Kuro-chin, Mido-chin... can you go down now?
  • ----
  • Kuroko: The rain stops.
  • Midorima: The rain stop this late? Shall we head home?
  • Murasakibara: Let's stop by the store~ I need snacks.
  • Akashi: Sure thing. Let's go...
  • Midorima: Hm..
  • Murasakibara: What's wrong, Mido-chin?
  • Midorima: I think we are forgetting something? I just can't put my finger on it.
  • Murasakibara: The rain stops, so you are forgetting to eat ice cream.
  • Akashi: That's right. Let's head over there. It's my treat.
  • Kuroko: Thank you, Akashi-kun.
  • ----
  • Aomine: Oi, Kise, what should we do?
  • Kise: It seems ghost-san is not moving an inch away from the door.
  • Aomine: 'ch, let's just wait for the others to come and pick us up.
  • Kise: Sure-ssu.

:c Is there something wrong with reblogging other people's stuff though? Cause that's sort of what I do. I just reblog whatever relates to how I feel and what appeals to my eyes.

No, reblogging is not bad, but reposting - yes. Because you don’t know that this person stole something from others. It’s not nice when I see many blogs with my caps and they don’t even credit it. They post it as THEIR post. Sometimes “their” post have much more notes than mine. It’s pathetic then someone ask them about what manga is it and they reply “I don’t know”. I spend  a lot of time on reading and editing manga and somebody just save it and post it without thinking.
