Fairy Tail 200

[scanlation by Binktopia]

I’m always hesitant to agree when a series praises itself, such as Fairy Tail describing itself as “Super Popular Battle x Fantasy.” Popular, yes, but new volumes of Fairy Tail are consistently outsold by new volumes of not only One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach, but also Katekyo Hitman Reborn! and Detective Conan.

While the first color page is excellent, the color cover is lackluster. The motif is a little too sickeningly sweet, and Natsu’s face seems off.

Lluvia delivers a pretty good punchline.

That makes one of us

Please, Gazille, there was more than enough cat activity in the last arc. Don’t spur on any more cat plot.

The Gorousei — I mean, the Magic Council don’t play a particularly interesting role in this series, and a sudden re-introduction of their desire to dissolve Fairy Tail will not be enough to redeem them.

Punishable by death

Some sad-looking boy with an apparently-unwanted power to kill anything around him appears, and he’s looking for Natsu. “Burden of a terrible ability” plot is overdone as it is; did it really need to be paired with such a dour-faced character?

Cheer up, emo instrument of genocide

Final Flash: Not much of a milestone chapter, and not much to pique interest in future chapters, either.
