Looks like Hiro Mashima is gutting his series as best as possible which I find impressive takes a lot to make a fan base drop a series after years of dedication
So with Hiro's latest few chapters he's been dropping antagonist like flies with one shots and ass pulls. While I'm not surprised it's disappointing to say the least, however this isn't my area of expertise what is is that these fights have now been compared to bleach which I disagree with to some extent
The difference between the two is Kubo was being forced out and in a pretty disgusting way to with not even so much as a mention it was the last chapter in jump. No jump cover no mention no nothing just a "thanks for the dough now get it the door" Hiro has nothing but love from a huge supportive fan base and jump itself HE'S doing this to his own vision by his own design. So while there are a few chapters left unless Hiro decides to do the same bull he does for his protagonist when they "die" yeah Fairy Tail will be on its way out with a wimper instead of an explosion... :3
While I was less than enthusiastic about the ending of Bleach the anime I was left somewhat satisfied with the manga sure questions GALORE needed answering but it's best to leave them as the mysteries they are instead of theorizing until the end of time because that's all we as fans really can do :D
Here's hoping Fairy Tail can pick up a final stride and really do something surprising or helpful to this abysmal set of chapters.
