Not a bad episode! The story moved forward quite a bit, and we still got a few nice juicy tidbits about Erza’s past, as well as some of Fairy Tail’s signature humor. Natsu and co relaxing and eating and changing clothes in between their battles was funny, as was the growing jealousy that Juvia has for Lucy.
Seeing a small, cute Erza was nice too. I think I’m beginning to like her character a lot more now that I see she’s human and more than just an angry bossy sisterly character. She’s generally scared of whatever Jellal is planning, and of him, and the very fact that she feels fear and is so afraid is great for the character. That aside, Lucy and Gray insisting on helping her was pretty sweet too.
The revelation that Jellal was actually Siegrain’s twin, and not Seigrain himself was surprising, but not all that bad. I wonder what kind of relation the two brothers have, especially since Siegrain seems to know Erza, but isn’t present in any of the flashbacks of her childhood. Siegrain seems pretty afraid of the R-System himself, and wants to end things quickly with Fairy Tail’s version of an Atom Bomb XD
As for Jellal’s actual plan, I wonder who he wants to revive, and what his real plan is. It may be that eye that we get a glimpse of in the preview, or some evil demon much like Deliora from Gray’s past? Eitherway, its nice that while the series continues to keep the action and humor in each episode, the emphasis is clearly on the story.
Also, I still can’t stand Wally, that blocky weirdo should just… disappear. Jeez XD
It seems next episode will conclude the backstory and whatever happened to Jallal after he was captured.
