I tried to read Fairy Tail once more, but I couldn't. I realized that I'm tired of shouen mangas, like Naruto/One Piece/Fairy Tail, since they're so freaking idealistic. Natsu once said that he would never let anyone sacrifice Lucy's (his friend) future, even though they were in a grave and desperate situation where Rogue accused (incorrectly) of Lucy blocking a very important step in saving the world and wants to kill her. I... on one hand, Natsu trusts his friend very very very much, the other hand he is being very selfish for the world. He is unwilling to sacrifice his friend's future, but willing to kill off the world' future? And, of course, in the end, everything works out well.

I guess this is not the type of manga for me then, because I hate it when people are so selfish and well the author himself supports this type of view, portraying them in a just light, and I'm just ugh.

Maybe that's why I prefer Shingeki no Kyojin 1000x than FT? Well, those two animes conflict in terms of values in so many different ways lol but the thing is that Shingeki is realistic in terms of battling methods- you must sacrifice many people's lives for the sake of the future and humanity because that's real life, while FT is all about trying not to sacrifice anyone's future, but if that couldn't be done, oh, fuck that, just don't sacrifice my friends' lives alright?

:/ I once loved Fairy Tail to death and it was the only anime that made me cry more than five times, but as the anime/manga progressed on I stopped crying and losing my tears because they are, to me, turning more and more selfish and Mashima actually supports them.

Oh well.

but their soundtrak is damn good
pennilee: (FUCK.)

After watching the FT movie...

I didn't feel any emotions. Could that be because I've watched too many heart-wretching FT episodes that have done better jobs than the movie? Maybe, but then how come I cried after rewatching the Edolas arc if I'm supposedly immune to FT dramas? Idk. But I hated the fact that Lucy was acting like nothing short of a selfish brat and useless person there.

I mean, there were many instances in which she could have pulled out her keys and protected Eclair from danger. But no, she just chose to ran and scream away. Hell, then, at the end, when Eclair had to go because of the Phoenix's death, she was so reluctant on letting go and not caring about the world or the Phoenix stone (she said so herself at the beginning! I don't care about the stones or that! I just want to protect Eclair!) ... which basically meant she didn't give a crap about the world and only did it and went on this mission for her.

Can you say SELFISH!? I mean, I know, Lucy has always been on the selfish side of humanity, but she just kept on screaming in the end when Eclair was about to die, and Eclair even wanted to die because she has lived too long! Besides, which does she want to keep? Her friends or the world?

I have a feeling that Fairy Tail would pick their friends instead of the 1 billion+ people in their world.

Right now, I fucking hate Lucy because

#1. she's fucking useless. All she does right now is collect keys and occasionally being a badass (loved it when she argued with Angel for Loke + the sheep...'s happiness and slammed Urano Meteoria on her) and being FUCKING USELESS.

#2. she's selfish. I mean, I /can/ tolerate her if she's useless but not selfish, but NO, she's selfish on TOP of being fucking useless. Seriously? she'll drop dead for her friends but won't for the world. And judging from her decisions, she'd probably drop dead for Eclair than saving the world, since Lucy kept on yelling "STOP!" when Makarov was signaling Erza to fire it AND thus, saving the entire world.

I understand her feelings a bit. But seriously. She needs someone to bitchslap her occasionally, and her friends are too nice to do that so I may jump into the anime one day and do that myself.

Rating the movie a 3/10.
