Welcome back to what I am now calling Fairy Tail Fridays, where I review arcs of the show Fairy Tail. Last time we looked at the first 2 episodes of the shows, with the real meat of that arc coming in the second half. However, what awaits the Fairy Tail crew in their second adventure?
1.Spoilers are abounding here folks. If you want to watch it blindly... go watch it. Spoilers are here.
2. Depending on the Anime, this can get NSFW.
3. I am watching the subbed version.
ARE YOU READY FOR ROUND 2? This is my review of Fairy Tail's DayBreak Arc.
So this will be a bit shorter than the last one, as it's just a 2 episode arc and the episodes flow into each other more. Lucy and Natsu are agree to go on a quest to gain back a book called Daybreak. They agree to the quest, which requires Lucy to dress up as a maid because Natsu and Happy tricked her. Ok That's funny.
Lucy decides to go with it, but Kaby Melon, the person who sent out the quest, upped the price from 200,000 Jewel to 2 million Jewel, as he wants that book to be destroyed. As such, the crew have to head to Duke Everlew's mansion to start the Job.
Everlew rejects Lucy as she is pretty enough... though most of his maids are ugly as hell. As such, Natsu, Lucy and Happy decide to sneak around to get the Daybreak book. After retrieving the book, Lucy begins to read it, while Natsu fights off the guards and Everlew's hit men.
Lucy ends up fighting off Everlew, with Help from Cancer(the sign, not... you know) and Natsu, who ends up fighting off one of the maids, Virgo. They return the book to Kaby, however things are not as they seem. Kaby's father, Kemu Zaleon also known as Zekua Melon, used a word changing spell, as the words DAYBREAK change to DEAR KABY, a letter to his son.
And that's the arc summed up as simply I as I can. This does feel a bit more condensed, but there are some good character moments here. Kaby, wanted get rid of the book because it gave it bad memories of his father, Natsu, due to his own past(his father left him when he was young and has been looking for him ever since) is pretty pissed off here, as Kaby is basically destroying the last memory of his father. This is good because it shows Natsu is not fully over his trauma and abandonment just yet, and I want to see what will happen there.
The bond between Lucy and Natsu also feels superstrong atm, they already seem like good friends, which is nice to see! I also want to see who would join team Natsu in the future!
Overall, this was a nice arc to watch. It was a little short, but I get the sense that it's a pace setter and benchmark for things to come more than anything.
Well this was short. Good though, because we have long arcs to come. Also I realise I didn't talk about the OP and ED last time, which are good, even if Kanpekigu No Ne feels a bit out of place. I'll talk about Snow Fairy more when we get to OP3, which is linked due to the artist being the same one.
Anyways, stay home if you can, keep washing those hands, and I'll see you guys next time. Take care and keep creating!
