Filler arc over!!

What They Say:
“Believe”

The end of an arc! At the Celestial Spirit Beast’s core, Natsu and Happy discover the original Celestial Spirit King, chained up and heading for imminent destruction. Meanwhile, the other Fairy Tail members are on the outside, trying to destroy the creature even as it gets stronger.

The Review:
Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
This arc somehow got worse. The enemy, in the end, was literally A REALLY BIG EVIL THING. That’s it. That’s literally it. I don’t know how this could be any more infuriating than it was, but it managed.

Oh, and what defeats it? And it is an it. Natsu. He gets to be the big strong dude that takes down the evil enemy and not any of the Celestial Spirit mages that are literally fighting for the magic they use. Damn you main characters. And how does he do it? HE EATS MAGIC PINK STUFF. I don’t get filler arcs. They think that they can just waltz into a perfectly fine show and do whatever they want. If I had my way, I’d say no more.

There is exactly one high point in this episode, and god damn are they emphasizing this. Way back in episode 29 of series 2, Fairy Tail had an episode with Lucy and Aquarius. They focus on the relationship yet again in this episode with tsundere Aquarius giving up her key to Lucy, along with all of her other Celestial Spirits. It’s a sign that they’re all friends again, yet remember nothing that happened. It’s an all too convenient plot device.

The next episode is still filler, but I think it was an omake chapter. So hopefully it’ll be more tolerable. It’ll be fun at least, with tons of cute little Asuka.

In Summary:
This was a terrible story. The arc had some really fun episodes because they were allowed to go completely out of the story constraints of the arc and, well, have fun. But your enemy is at least four separate entities (the Celestial Spirits as a whole, Ophiuchus, the not-Princess Mononoke thing, and the evil pink ball) and, in the end, the real enemy is not given an explanation as to why any of it happened. This is not the brilliantly nuanced story that Under the Skin is; they have nothing else to say or tell than “these cool sequence of events happened.” Oh well, I get to be done with it for now. Until the next giant pile of trash filler arc, Fairy Tail!
