Fairy Tail: sh*t just got real.


I've been wondering since the whole "12 spirits of the zodiac" motif was brought up as to whether or not Mashima would work Ophiuchus into it. I'm pretty glad he did, too. Holy **** at Pisces, though. All the other spirits are more or less in line with what I was expecting prior to their reveal, but Pisces all sorts of out of left field Smiley: laugh

....you know.... that would make a lot of sense... Lucy's ability is a lot like FFXI smns! Only the gold keys (avatars) are ever really useful while the silver keys (elementals) exist and are far more common, we never see her use them, save random specialized situations and plue for the sake of him being plue.

Buuuuuuuut:

Taurus -> Titan (The big guy)
Cancer -> Ifrit (The rarely used claw guy)
Aquarius -> Shiva (The super strong icequeen (Ok, shiva's not super strong, but the only avatars I've seen get regular use for the entire time I've played are her and garuda, others fade in and out)
Virgo -> Garuda (The useful, kinky one)
Sagittarius -> Ramuh (The rarely used awkward one (horse hat, ramuh's gigantic ******* eyebrows, etc)
Leo -> Fenrir (The loyal powerhouse)
Scorpio -> Diabolos (The specialized powerhouse (sleep-based vs sand based)
Gemini -> Carbuncle (The cute one)
Aries -> Alexander (The defensive one)
Capricorn -> Odin (The situationally strong one (Presumably))
Pisces -> Leviathan (the creepy looking fish one)
Libra -> Pheonix (The... Gravity vs Pheonix.... pheonix are birds and can fly, there's something here to make this work. idk, boobs.)
Ophiuchus -> Bahamut (The oh shi- music queing one)

********* actually
Natsu -> Sam (Designated Shounen Protagonist Sue (Sam being the sue, Natsu's shown SOME ability to not be totally shounen protagonistic)
Gray -> Drg (The Not-quite-as-strong-but-still-really-strong Rival, but really I only say this because of Gray's Icemake: Gungnir)
Erza -> Pld/War depending on the situation (Team Tank or Melee Weapon Specialist)
Wendy -> Whm (Overly strong healer, with Sky Dragon's Roar being Wendy's Holy II)
Happy/Charle -> The Moogle (They're cute and they can fly)
Gajeel -> Drk (The Other-not-quite-as-strong-but-still-really-strong Rival)
Elfman -> Mnk (The Other-other-not-quite-as-strong-but-still-really-strong Rival, but with some tankability)
Lily -> Pup (The unassumingly strong one (Lily's my favorite, this analogue is totally inaccurate, but I don't care because <3 Lily and <3 pup))

Smiley: jawdrop

True, but compare her physical combat strength to Natsu's. Then compare smn melee to sam melee. Still, your point is valid.

I always figured Natsu was a DRG and Happy was his little blue flying pet.

Yea, I wanted to go with that, but given how cliche that would be with the fact that he uses Dragon Slayer magic, I opted for Sam, which is pretty much FFXI's version of the "Generic Shounen Invincible Protagonist" Realistically, you could argue that Natsu, Wendy, and Gajeel are all drgs, with Happy being the Multipurpose wyvern, Charle being the Support wyvern (and by proxy, wendy being drg/whm or drg/sch) and Lily being the Offensive Wyvern, but that was too much to type out at the time I was doing that Smiley: laugh

The Fairy Tail special was amusing. I can't wait to see Erza vs. Kagura.

Extremely early release

So Quincys get bankais now?

Bleach: Boring
OP: Final Boss of this arc gets named
Naruto: More back story for Kabuto

In other news the Naruto Shippuden OVA: Naruto: Honoo no Chuunin Shiken! Naruto vs. Konohamaru!! was kinda cute. Checked it out on a whim cause I was bored. Otherwise I never watch the anime, to much filler.

Remember way back in the Soul Society Arc when Ishida went against Mayuri, and had to use that mega powerful, but lose your powers forever thing?

Pretty sure that's what we just saw.

Also, the villain is now wearing heels.

You were right, Ishada did use that move. I guess I forgot (went back and re-read part of that arc) his just wasn't so, flamboyant, so I didn't connect the two.

Obviously, however, because these guys are the secret quincies that weren't supposed to exist, they've developed a way to reuse that ability over and over without actually losing their powers permanently, or having anything close to the side effects ishida had, because he managed to get his powers back, too. Never expected Kubo to pull plotkai on the quincy badguys, though, so I have to give him points for that.Smiley: laugh

I was expecting something more along the lines of Kubo rehashing something else and making Arranquincies with Resurreciones, or for him to pull some fifth* group out of his *** to fill the void and have the quincy badguys be half quincy-halfnewgroup, and then the new group would either become a third party and instigate a three-way war, or would for whatever reason, align themselves with one side or the other. Both seemed far more convoluted and Kubo-esque than simply taking something he used as a one-shot forever ago and half-retconning it to fit the plot now.

*: Fifth counting Shinigami, Quincies, Hollows, and Fullbringers, and ignoring Bounts, unless I'm missing someone. Visored are half shinigami/half Hollow, and arrancar are half hollow/half shinigami, so neither is really a full group on their own.

So, Claymore.

That's the end?

What.


Seriously hope it's going to get a continuation and the author just wanted to give it a new name or something... I mean, I know that Japanese culture prefers ambiguous endings in general, but ****, this is way beyond ambiguous. We're not talking hanging plot holes, here, we're talking well set up, dangling plot canyons... Smiley: dubious
Someone please tell me that the author's said something about the story still going, becauseI can't find it...

Since they can still awaken, my guess is that from now on they will have to go Highlander on each other every time one of them changes. The final two Claymores will then kill each other during the final battle, and the Claymores and Yoma will become legends in the island's history.

If Claymore ends like that, then wow way to troll Yagi. All this after finally getting me to want to see more of Raki. Though I haven't seen anything from Jump or him to explain it or news that it was done and something replacing it.

There are plenty of rumors. Some say he's restarting the series under another name. Others that the publisher just decided Claymore wasn't doing well enough. Some that it's part of a protest against legal changes to author's rights to their works.

Negima! has ended abrubtly due to the legal issues as well.

My understanding is that the publishers are trying to claim more of the copyright pie, in order to pursue copyright violations and take more credit for the artist's work. A lot of artists who don't want to lose control are going "Oh really? Well, I don't need you" and ending their series that come out in the Big Weeklies with plans to switch over to an independent, online based format with print on demand for compilations. Why pay a big publishing house 90% of the profits of your manga and lose control of your work when you can hire your own assistants and a digital typesetter, release it online like everyone wants anyway, and keep all the money (minus assistant salaries) for yourself instead?

The only ones who cannot jump ship like this are the smaller, no name manga artists who don't have the weight of their names to sell any new series and thus cannot afford to end their contracts with the publishers.

I still bet Kagura vs. Erza is going to happen, but after Kagura totally punks Jellel.

hrmmmmm,

So rogue is not at all content with his guild, while sting is a complete assjack, which everyone had already figured out. Yukino wants to talk with Lucy for obvious reasons, Kagura wants to kill Jellal... god dammit Mashima... I WANT NEXT WEEKS CHAPTER NAO.

edit: I also love that he totally carried through with the Quatro Puppy thing Smiley: laugh

Okay, I just totally had a squee over Erza and Jellal having secret meetings and normal conversations. Also, the Gray/Juvia/Lyon chibi panel was adorable. I wonder how that meeting went...?

My guess? Gray and Lyon unconsciously stripped, which Lyon blamed on Gray and then started a fight about. They had a swordfight, and it ended about as well as could be expected. And yes, I did that intentionally.
