What do you think were the best nalu moments in this arc so far?
Hmm~ This is a good question! I had to go back quite far for this one, but I think you’ll like it! It’s gonna be a long answer, so let’s get started!
First off, we have Natsu coming back from his year long training session:
I mean, in the entirety of chapter 418 we see just how much Lucy misses Natsu (and Happy too of course), but in this page, you can see how happy she is that he’s back. She looks almost relieved (not that she wasn’t thriving on her own, but she had a hole in her heart). Natsu looks ecstatic to see Lucy (we even get a little blush).
Moving on to chapter 419 (don’t worry, I won’t be going through every chapter like this lmao) but OH MY GOD LOOK. Natsu had no idea how hard Lucy was working and how broken she was losing Aquarius, everyone, and HIM all at once. I think this is where he truly understood her pain whether he knew all the details or not.
Also, how can we forget how “first chapter” this page is. It’s almost like Lucy can’t believe it. He’s back and so is Fairy Tail.
Here, it’s pretty clear that Natsu has learned how much him leaving as well hurt her. I think this is v important for their relationship… Which they still have yet to “resolve” though I don’t think Natsu leaving was entirely “selfish”.
I think here Natsu is trying to gain Lucy’s trust again. To prove himself to her, and honestly I believe that this scene is very intimate between them and the way their relationship is. Not so much romantically, but their trust in each other.
We also get a LOT of scenes of both Natsu and Lucy reacting like this to one another…
Okay, okay I know, I’m nitpicking everything- HOW CAN I PICK JUST A FEW FAVORITES?? But alright, I’m going to get into general, overarching moments that I think are the best and really love!
There is A LOT under this break and there are also spoilers of the latest chapters!! Please read with caution :)
