So much to appreciate in these panels; all the dragon slayers being rushed by their loved ones, THAT GAJEVY/GALE HUG, the most perfect Nalu moment to date, Natsu with that special grin he only gives when he’s with Lucy, the list goes on!
You can really feel Hiro Mashima speaking to us as he’s getting ready to close the book on a beloved story. I know i’m going to be a absolute wreck once it’s all over, but at least we’re getting 48 COLORED pages, Gray’s answer (FINALLY) and with any luck see our ships sail at last! And what’s with that little bit at the end making it sound like a new adventure is beginning??
It’s been a phenomenal journey Hiro-Sensei has taken us on with these guys. They’ve taught us so much about the power of love, of living, of family and of friends, that blood alone doesn’t have to connect us in order to be considered family. I for one am so grateful for everything Fairy Tail has done and will be so sad to see it go, but will never forget the memories that were made while reading this incredible manga.
