Ep 166 stream
Looks like next week they made an entire episode out of what was essentially one page of the manga.
That, or they're not showing much of the episode in the preview.
at least next episode title is 1 vs 100, not MPF
glad that they expend the pandemonium part woohoo
Yeah, if there's one part I don't mind that much them cranking up the filler is Erza being a badass.
As for this episode, they gave Dobengal a bit more to do before Natsu put him down, and they gave Natsu 30 more hits on Giemma due to the "Low-Budget Solution of the Animated Meteor Fists of Win"TM (which is when the animation stands completely still for 30 seconds, or maybe one character's arms move back and forth between two frames, and all you hear are punching sounds).
I also enjoyed how on some frames Rufus was 6 feet behind Orga, and on others he was right in front of him.
Regardless, great episode, capturing 2 of the tournament highlights: Natsu vs. Giemma, and thousands of dropping jaws at "My oponnents will be all 100".
Still, the true highlight of the episode was Minerva. Wow. She looks awesome.
It was easy to predict that they will show us Erza's fight with 100 monsters. Do you really think it's filler? I would rather say that the next episode will show us what was going on between 18 and 19 page from 284chapter which was SKIPPED by Mashima, we had only a final result of Pandemonium competition.
That's not to say that it isn't a good decision. It's a whole lot better than making every single female character in sight jump into the arena and starting to undress, that's for sure...
Next episode is going to be great *_*
I hate Minerva with all my being, but damn if her voice is hot (as well as her body. )
Ok, Pervert mode off, now about the episode I quite enjoyed watching it and something tells me that I will enjoy even more the next one.
As long as fillers are used in such a way, I've got nothing against them.
Actually, Minerva's face was... odd. Like, her nose was off or something.
Well, I'm probably not going to consider any specific action Erza takes in this next episode when weighing her in debates. (We already know she beat all 100 while looking awesome anyway, so it's not like that's some huge loss to her.) Still, as long as it's not a whole episode of stiff fighting then I think it as the potential to be a good episode.
Does that sound odd from someone who counts the Starry Heavens arc? From the preview it looked like there was a lot of stuff that Mashima gave no indication for in the manga, so I have a feeling I'm going to just call this filler, be it good or bad.
Cally me crazy, as much as every1 hates Minerva SHE IS DAMN HOT hehehe. I'm starting to fall for her.
Next episode is all about ...here comes wonder woman
I'm kinda disapointed in a way they drew this fight, to me in manga it was more entertaining and epic. And in anime it looked a bit awkward and like it has been somehow cut into random fragments. Also too much explanation but whatever it's still fine
I have to say, I don't like Minerva but her entrance is nice..I love the color of the dress she is wearing and she is portray nicely.. so far..

WTF is with Millianna's clothes!? I seem to remember her wearing shorts in the manga. O_O
Nope. A quick google search returned pretty much the same outfit as in the anime.
