It'll be fine if it's just Sting, but they suck at animating everyone especially Laxus and Gajeel with the latter looking like Akuma from SF and the former looks so stupid compared to his awesome looks in the manga. The same goes for Rouge, Natsu, Jura and almost every other character. The irony...that the manga has the best art I've ever seen, but the anime has the ugliest animation out there.
They have good weeks too. They probably just didn't want to put much of their budget into an episode that's entirely transition. It just... really bugged me watching Sting walk out like that is all.
In any case, animation is especially important during fight scenes.
And starting from next week, we will have mostly fight scenes one after the other!
I can't wait to see this arc animated!
Me neither, I've been hoping to see this arc animated for such a long time. I was re-reading the manga and I was like: OMG I wanna see this, and this, with this battle music, and then this and this.
The ones that I'll love the most are day 3 and 4, I'm just going to love those.
i dunno whats going on but i feel like the manga arc has more deepness in it, dont feel that muc pumped up for anime at all...Like for example it was epic when FT B first appeared in manga, in anime it was so whatever...lik no big deal. well thats my opinion...plus freakin op sspoilers
And about the OP spoilers, yeah I agree, they're terrible, especially for those who doesn't follow the manga.
Having said this, I quite liked this week episode and finally the day 1 has officially begun.
This is the link in YouTube of the raw of the fourth OVA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCqdT0y0Pcw.
Yeah, Day 3 and 4 are the best ones.
But, I especially loves Day 3!
Oh, well, it seems we'll have two days of tournament filler.
Days 1 through 4 seem to be exactly like the manga, day 7 will probably be like day 5 in the manga, and days 5 and 6 will be filler...
Will this be the last arc?
I don't know where to ask, but would it be okay to post something about the ova episodes here? It's so funny, I just couldn't hold back. I couldn't wait to see it subbed. The best I could say without spoiling anyone is that there's a lot of nalu there. REALLY a lot of NALU there. I'm sure natsux lucy fans would love it. There's also grayxjuvia there.
