FT Ending RANT: I'm Dissapointed
It’s been a while since I’ve been feeling this way, and since the last chapter is next week, I might as well voice my opinions and feelings.
Fairy Tail has a special place in my heart, and always will. It was the first anime I genuinely enjoyed for years on end…I was crazy about it. Fairy Tail was always in my vocabulary, I was always reading fanfictions, watching episodes, watching AMV’s, loving, appreciating, and fangirling over the story and all the characters… and when the anime ended, I began to read the manga, and was still always just as excited.
Fairy Tail helped me to meet many new people online and offline, helped me to reach out and try new things, and also just gave me genuine happiness like nothing else.
But…during the past arc, the last arc, I noticed the quality of writing decreasing with every chapter. And me being the Fairytard I am, I tried to defend it as much as possible. I was being oblivious and ignorant. “It’s not bad.” “Hiro always has bad chapters here and there but then he’ll release one that’s complete gold” “This is what I should expect.”
But, their is only so far you can get pushed. Alvarez was a huge disappointment. Why introduce them in the first place if they all got beaten so easily. Why hype them up if in reality they could’ve been mistaken for fodder. Why make Chelia lose her powers, to supposedly make the defeat of Demetria more dramatic, when in actuality Demeria was still alive and healthy.
I was so disappointed with Alvarez. I was so disappointed. Especially with the one shot of God Serena. Just no.
And the way Zeref and Acnologia were treated honestly just makes me sad. Zeref, someone so intricately written and thought out. Someone so twisted, yet so kind, someone you didn’t know wether to love or hate. He was such an interesting character, my favorite villain of all. Yet, how was he taken out? Being punched or whatever by Natsu when he could’ve easily just walked through the portal to begin his new life? Being beaten so easily in that OP state? He couldve killed Natsu with the flick of a finger if he wanted to, not that I wanted him to either, but still, so much wasted potential.
And Acnologia. My God, I was just DISGUSTED by the way Acnologia went out. Being beat my magic, when he’s apparently immune to magic and can EAT it? Being cornered into some last minute fairy sphere, how this girl got all around the continent in such a short amount of time will forever be a mystery.
But WORST OF ALL. Acnologia conveniently gets paralyzed, forgets his arm is gone(how the hell do you do that and also why could he only move that arm)and one-shoted by the Dragon Slayers Friendship Fist. Fucking Hell.
AND WHATS WORST IS THAT HE DISINTEGRATED! HOW? WHY? Did being hit by Natsu’s fist make him reach some form of enlightenment? What was with that dazed, peaceful look? So UNCHARACTERISTIC FOR HIM? What would make this twisted, heavily PRIDEFUL, and psychotic man/dragon THROW AWAY HIS OWN TITLE, ADMIT DEFEAT, AND GIVE HIS TITLE TO SOMEONE ELSE? We didn’t get any backstory that I’m sure we were all expecting. He just ended up being an OP, depthless character who wanted nothing but to destroy all dragons, with the last minute drop in out of nowhere that “dragons are terrible and killed my family.” Yet…didn’t he boast about being the DRAGON KING? About being the strongest dragon? Where the heck is the sense in that.
That was terrible. Hell no. It would’ve been better if he would’ve went out with a very cliche and overused, “Noooooo!!” Which still would’ve been better than this ishh Mashima pulled. That was terrible. I’m disappointed. I’m so disappointed. Mashima, don’t hype up characters for hundreds of chapters, make them super OP and badass, and LIKEABLE, just to make them go out in shit ways and have their final fights be lackluster, disgusting, cringey, overused, and disappointing as fuck. At least Acnologia, I thought. If anyone, at least he’ll let Acnologia go out with a bang. But hell no was I wrong.
I literally read the latest chapter with a straight face throughout the whole thing. I was done with it, and I wasn’t expecting a great ending at all. I’m glad my hopes were not shot down, since I didn’t have any in the first place, but I will admit the one thing that made me smile throughout the whole chapter was the small Nalu moment at the end.
After all, their relationship is a big reason why I fell in love with Fairy Tail in the first place.
I actually look forward to the next chapter, since they no longer have enemies to beat. I’ll enjoy one of the main aspects which made me love Fairy Tail, the relationships between the characters and their interactions with one another. Surely he will not disappoint on that. I really hope not.
But…those are my feelings. I’d love to hear what you thought too.I am Trollshima’s Assistant. But I sure as hell did not help with this crap arc.💩I will overlook Fairy Tail’s darker days and continue to love it for the beauty it contains.
