Fairy Tail Zero chapter 08

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Fairy Tail Zero Chapter 08Mavis convinces Yury, Precht and Warrod to free the town of Magnolia despite some reservations on the part of Yury. Mavis and Zeira make a scouting run before coming back to draw up a plan of action for taking down Geoffrey, the Master of Blue Skull.

While Geoffry is out hunting with a few men when the trees begin moving, thanks to Warrod. Warrod comes out, telling Geoffrey that he’s not there for revenge, but for Blue Skull’s treasure. Geoffry gets a report from one of his men that Magnolia is on fire as Warrod flees. Geoffry sends his two men after Warrod while he frantically races home.

Arriving at the burning Magnolia, Mavis emerges from the flames, denouncing him for having done this same thing to Tenrou Island seven years ago. With people burning to death, Geoffry realizes this is an illusion. As such, he dispels the illusion, only to find himself in a cage. While Magnolia is fine, Yuri and Precht take out Blue Skull.

At the cathedral, Yury sees the Tenrou gem on the alter.  As Yury is going for the treasure, Geoffrey tells Mavis that if they were going after the Tenrou gem, it shouldn’t be touched because what’s in the cathedral is a substitute which if removed, will destroy Magnolia.

Thoughts/Review:

I love Mavis. She’s such an awesome character because of her fearlessness. Yeah, she can be knocked down at times and even cry, but she always gathers herself together for a return that makes her more awesome than before.

Fairy Tail Zero Chapter 08

Seriously, I just LOVE that image of her coming out of the flames like that. But that’s just me. ^_^

There was no real explanation as to why Yuri, Warrod, and Precht got the magic they did other than this is what they had in Fairy Tail. I’m just a little disappointed in that, but I suppose that since it wouldn’t advance the plot, such details are pushed aside.

As to Mavis, I like how her powers are basically what they always were, only better. She projected an illusion a great distance away, causing Geoffry (or Jeffry) to not realize how far he’d traveled and to be completely sucked in by the illusion. Further, her illusion hid the trap he walked into, which makes her powers all the more impressive.

So, what fun is in store if Yury takes the gem? Or will there be something that stops him from taking it immediately, so that Mavis can get there in time?

Finally, there’s still no resolution on Zeira and whether she’s real, illusion, or a ghost. I wonder how long Mashima-sensei will keep that little mystery going?

So a pretty fun chapter, letting Mavis be her awesomeness. ^_^

    I’m really enjoying Zero but I wonder how much longer it will last, I originally thought it might be a single volume but I don’t think this story could be resolved in 2/3 chapters, but it might.
    Although, I would love to see it last have a few more arcs.

    Also, I believe Yuri mentioned last chapter that he specifically wanted to learn lightning magic.

    I really hope this gets animated, I think it could be a good OVA or two, or they could animate it in place of filler.

    I imagine since Fairy Tail is pretty popular that each spinoff will get animated.

    Have you been reading the Gray, Wendy and Fairy Girls spinoffs?

      I had the impression that it would be a staple of the manga magazine Mashima-sensei publishes. Granted, this is a TON of work for a single mangaka to do (a monthly and a weekly manga series, plus all the extra stuff he posts on Twitter), but I suppose that as long as he has the ability to do it, he’ll continue Zero.

      Have you been reading the Gray, Wendy and Fairy Girls spinoffs?

      I sampled the one with Gray and the one with Wendy. I couldn’t get into either of them. I didn’t know there was another one featuring Fairy Girls. ^_^;

        The reason I thought it might be a single volume is because I thought this might be too much work for Mashima. I like the idea of Zero lasting for a long time, I hope so.

          Yeah, it is pretty insane how much work he does with his empire. But, when you love what you do, I guess it isn’t a chore.
