Fairy Tail Zero chapter 10

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Fairy Tail Zero Chapter 10Warrod discovers their trap for the Blue Skull master is empty. In town, Mavis creates the illusion of gold coins to attract the attention of the Yury bone dragon. Having accomplished this, Mavis leap’s onto the back of the bone dragon’s back, having decided she’ll use the Law spell.

Zeira also lands on the bone dragon, begging Mavis not do cast the spell since Mavis has not mastered it, and according to Zeref, it would take ten years for her to do so. However Mavis is determined since the spell saves what the caster considers good and defeats what the caster thinks is evil. Mavis is willing to take the risk with this ancient spell because it would defeat the bone dragon and save Yury. Further, since she considers these guys friends, she wants to save them.

Zeira has Mavis promise that they’ll hunt Fairies together with the three guys. Mavis thanks Zeira for giving her courage as she leaps off the dragon’s back and casts her spell. The bone dragon is defeats and crumbles, and the Tenrou Jewel shatters. Zeira sees that Yury is alive and himself again, but then she notices that Mavis is lying on the ground and not moving.

Thoughts/Review:

Heh!heh!heh! I remember when Fairy Law was introduced in the Fairy Tail manga as a means of ultimately defeating the Phantom Guild. Back then in the manga, Zeref was this cliche-sounding dark wizard who created a lot of demons to destroy the world. So it is funny to me that the forerunner of the Fairy Law spell (Law) was actually taught to Mavis by Zeref.

Fairy Tail Zero Chapter 10

Mavis continues to be awesome in this chapter. While she does discuss friendship, she doesn’t fall into the trap that the main Fairy Tail series keeps getting ensnared in, that being the so-called “nakama power” by which a Fairy Tail member cites their friend for giving them power to defeat their enemies. Here, Mavis just credits Zeira for giving her confidence to do the needful, and cites the need to take a risk of one’s own life in order to save one’s friends. That is fine to me.

I’m not current with Fairy Tail (I’m up to volume 46), so I don’t know what new info there is out there for Mavis. However, Mavis is basically a spirit, howbeit a powerful one, in what I’ve read to date. So seeing Mavis at the end of this chapter makes me wonder if she’s actually dead here. If Zeira is alive, then it is possible that she sacrifices herself to save Mavis. There’s a possibility that Mavis is dead, but something happens which explains why she has an ethereal body.

Of course there’s Zeira, who may not be alive at all. Man, Mashima-sensei has dragged that little plot thing out for nearly a year now.

Although I’m not finding a lot of specifics to discuss, I am finding that I’m liking Fairy Tail Zero a lot more than Fairy Tail. While Mavis is a factor there, I think the biggest thing is that there are only five characters to deal with. In the last volume of Fairy Tail that I read, I couldn’t even begin to tell you the number of characters that are in that manga, or involved in the arc as a whole. Mashima-sensei gives different characters a moment to shine, but as I mentioned earlier, they all seem to “shine” because of nakama power, which is boring and cliched as all get out. We get it — your friends and guild are important.

Anyway, I don’t know how long Fairy Tail Zero will go on. However, I hope that Mashima-sensei will avoid the mistakes in Fairy Tail and not have a story with 100 or so characters to deal with should Fairy Tail Zero be here for the long term.

    I’m really loving Mavis. She’s become one of my favourite FT characters, possibly my most favourite.

    She’s very different to Natsu and Haru(Rave Master) and in a good way.

    I hope FT0 continues for a while but I think it’s crazy that he’s working on a weekly and monthly series at the same.

    Also I know the Zeira mystery has been going for nearly year but it’s only been 10 chapters, most mysteries in shonen manga last a lot longer.

      I’m with you there. 😀

      That, and the other work he does for his Fairy Tail empire. I don’t know how he has the time.

    11th Chapter is out, and we get two revelation (one of which would be explained properly in the next chapter).
