Thank you to all the 100 participants for making this project work! All the spots were completely filled in 2 weeks which was really unexpected, but made us very happy that the love for the Kagamines is still as strong as ever. All the artist credits can be viewed here in our shiny new page… make sure to check it out! Be sure to tag your individual artworks as ‘100 Kagamine Collaboration’ so we can reblog it from you!
Again, a very Happy Birthday to Rin & Len! Both of you will forever be our two yellow singing robot angels for years to come!
Gruvia fans have been waiting for a proper reunion since chapter 499 when Juvia sacrificed her life and Gray thought she had died. Mashima-sensei wouldn’t be Mashima-sensei if he gave it to us that easily though, especially with this pairing being one of the most teased in the series. Currently there are 4 chapters remaining before the series end (chapter 545 is the last, confirmed by the creator via twitter), and we are still waiting for Gray’s “answer” to Juvia, which is basically a promised on panel canonization of the ship.
We know that promise will be kept, not only because it was in the manga, but also because Mashima-sensei himself confirmed it last year when he went to Japan Expo in France.
Fan: Will Gray give Juvia an answer or will he make her wait?
Mashima: I think everyone wants to know his true feelings/how he truly feels, so yes, we can expect an answer soon enough.
Announcer: Ah, love love.
It’s not a matter of “if” Gray will give an answer. The question is “when”.
Following chapter 499, Gray went on a rampage due to the intense emotions he was feeling after what had happened to Juvia. He was so overwhelmed, the emotional gravity of the situation caused him to
pass out the moment he saw that she was alive. Juvia being heavily injured, passed out as well. And thus, Gruvia fans and their reunion were left hanging.
After being separated for quite some time, Gray and Juvia are finally back together:
But the war is not over. Lyon comments on this fact, and Gray even confirms it.
Gray is sticking to what he said in chapter 453; that the answer will come after the battle is over. That was Mashima-sensei’s way of telling us to wait as well. That is also why the two aren’t talking about what happened yet, so it’s important to not be discouraged. Especially because Mashima-sensei reminded us of how significant it is that the two talk.
That was the point of this scene:
The first thing Gray thinks of when the “after the war” topic is brought up is his commitment to Juvia.
Not just that, but Mashima-sensei’s recent twitter sketch tells us all we need to know regarding the future of our beloved pair:
We’re fortunate that the author has given us so much–and not just these reminders. Gruvia is one of the most developed pairings in shounen history. We got the chance to see that growth take place, on panel, step by step throughout the manga.
The above official art showcases Gray the happiest we have ever seen him. On the topic of Gray’s happiness, in the afterword of 413 Days, Mashima-sensei said that Gray and Juvia had a “boom” (impact) inside him, and had mentioned the different types of Gray fans (those who like him in his entirety, those who want him with a specific girl, those who don’t care for his romance, those who don’t want him with anyone, etc). He states:
I’ve already decided exactly what Gray’s future will be (/how Gray will turn out). I won’t (/unlikely) change my decision despite the various fan opinions/reactions. However, as a writer, no matter what happens [to Gray] I’d like people/fans to think more along the lines of #1 (he would be happy if fans thought that way).
#1. Those who like Gray in his entirety. If Gray is happy, everything is fine.
We know what, or rather, who makes Gray happy. This last arc has mainly focused on his side of equation, which is wonderful. We also can ascertain that he wants to experience that happiness to the fullest without conflict and past demons marring the future. Juvia’s love for Gray is of course, still as strong as ever. The fact that her feelings are still very much present in the closing chapters of the story is a tell tale sign they will be reciprocated. That has been clear for quite awhile now.
Gray has waited. Juvia has waited. Surely, we can handle that wait as well.
As we wait for the finale, we get the chance to see Gray and Juvia work together one more time. Even though we have not gotten a “proper” resolution yet, they are both ALIVE and facing the final obstacle TOGETHER to set a firm foundation for a bright future. The mere fact is that chapter 453 stresses that the answer would come after the battle.
Acnologia must be defeated before any meaningful conversation and resolution takes place. As we wait, let’s enjoy the final battle where our ship is together and putting the finishing touches on the journey towards their future. :)
Happy birthday to our most beloved Jeon Boram. Thank you for showering queen’s with love and ‘aeygo’, your smiles and ajumma laughs. No matter what decisions you make in the future, know we will always be behind you, supporting and watching over you. Thank you for being a part of our lives. Thank you for being a part of T-ARA ♛

This was it; in a few moments, you’d be sealing what had been the greatest adventure of your entire life; Harry Potter had brought you love, eternal friendship and so much happiness. You looked at yourself in the mirror, still feeling the same nerves you felt ten years ago when you were turning up to the Philosopher’s Stone premiere - now here at the Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiere, you quarrelled on how quickly time flied. You still recognised yourself yet you had matured - you had experienced so much and you were so lucky.
Practicing your mantra in an attempt to control your breathing, you took a breath for seven seconds, held it for five and exhaled for six. “Having fun?” You heard an all too familiar voice chime from behind you. You turn around, spotting Tom stood leaning against the doorway. “I’m so nervous.” You declare, walking over to him to give him a peck on the lips. “You look ravishing.” Tom comments looking you up and down with a smirk. You were wearing a navy full length dress that hugged your curves in all the right places. He was wearing a navy suit (which just so happened to be the same shade) and his hair was tousled just the way you like it. “So do you.” You replied in an oddly surprised tone. Tom hadn’t really bothered with the previous premieres, even turning up in jeans and a t-shirt to the last one. “You sound so surprised, love.” He chuckles, intertwining his fingers with yours. “I am, I didn’t think they’d make you look this sexy. Now I have to compete with all the other girls.” You chime, reaching up to peck his lips once again. “You’re not competing, Y/N, I’m already your boyfriend. Besides, you look amazing, should I be worried about any man trying to steal you away?” Tom asks with a grin on his face. You shake your head. “Of course not.”
Dean wants to cry when he sees Cas’ broken wings for the first time.
He remembers what the shadows of those wings looked like before, huge and majestic, terrifying in their awesome power.
And when he sees them broken, he wants to cry. But he doesn’t want to cry for all that Cas has lost. He wants to cry for all that Cas still is. He’s still strong and steady, still noble and loyal, more powerful than he ever was as an angel because now he knows what it is to love.
Dean wants to cry because Cas’ broken wings are more precious to him than Castiel’s whole ones could ever be. And he wants to cry because he doesn’t have the courage to make sure Cas knows that.
Baze doesn’t start repeating Chirrut’s chant when he dies, at least not quite.
Chirrut’s chant is “I am one with the Force and the Force is with me”. What Baze says “The Force is with me and I’m one with the Force”.
And it’s not because he’s just picking it up where Chirrut left off, Chirrut is silent when Baze reaches him. Plus when he starts his suicide run after Chirrut is dead he says exactly the same thing: “The Force is with me and I’m one with the Force”.
Again, reverse order.
It made me think.
What if the chant was always two part, meant for two people to conduct? One saying “I am one with the Force and the Force is with me” and the other replying “The Force is with me and I’m one with the Force”.
Chirrut haven’t heard the second part in years, not since Baze lost his faith. He could he supposes find another partner for the chant but he doesn’t want to, it’s Baze or no one.
He still keeps his own part, his own faith are as strong as ever and he makes no demands that Baze say his part. It will genuinely from the man’s heart or not at all, but he can’t refuse that the loss pains him some times.
Hearing Chirrut’s chant sometimes annoys Baze, it reminds him of what he once had but lost. But he says nothing. Whatever he does or doesn’t believes these days he won’t take faith away from another. And he knows that Chirrut isn’t doing it to upset him, but because it means something to him. So he stays silent on the matter, though sometimes he wishes he could say it again.
And the last thing - the very last thing - that Chirrut hears in this world, as consciousness fades from his body is Baze’s heartfelt voice saying “The Force is with me and I’m one with the Force”.
When we cast Kaitlin she brought so much to it in the first season that we were able to figure it out, and figure out what was funny about her. I have to give her a tremendous amount of credit because she really pushed us.
