This twelfth volume of the `Fairy Tail' manga sees the continuation of the story arc concentrating on Erza's past. With Trinity Raven defeated and the Magic Council preparing to launch their ultimate weapon, Etherion, on the Tower of Heaven, Erza goes to confront Jellal for the final time. Jellal though is unperturbed by these events and is ready to set his plans in motion.
This is another very entertaining volume of `Fairy Tail' with some nice emotional moments for Erza and some nice action for Natsu. The volume gives us a little more information on Erza's past as well. Some of the plot twists in this volume were also quite interesting, if slightly predictable in places, and the ending of the volume is also very well written and quite sad.
`Fairy Tail' is easily one of my favourite manga series and this twelfth volume is a great continuation of the series.
The Thunder God Tribe has been defeated and now Laxus stands alone against the remaining Fairy Tail forces. With the Thunder Palace counting down to the destruction of the town Mystogan, Erza, Natsu and Gajeel all converge on the cathedral for the final showdown with Lexus.
This is another very good volume of the `Fairy Tail' manga with some great action and some nice character moments here and there as well. The volume also gives us some interesting information on the Mystogan but also opens up more questions about the powerful and mysterious mage. The volume also gives us a few hints about Laxus and his family's past that are also quite interesting. The bonus story included in this manga is very good. It is a flashback to the birth of Happy and it is nice to see the child versions of the characters again.
Overall this was a very entertaining volume of `Fairy Tail' and is well worth a full five stars.
This ninth volume of the `Fairy Tail' manga focuses primarily on Lucy and Loke. After the defeat of Phantom Lord, the rebuilding of the guild begins but Lucy also has some family trouble that she needs to sort out. After this Fairy Tail's resident ladies' man, Loke begins to act strangely and Lucy tries to find out what is wrong with this wizard with a phobia of Celestial Spirit wizards.
This is a good volume of `Fairy Tail' as while it doesn't have any major battles, it does have some nice character moments for Lucy and gives some good information on Loke's background. The volume is also very funny in places with the short breather chapter between the Lucy and Loke storylines being particularly amusing. This was an enjoyable volume of `Fairy Tail' and while it may have been lacking in action it is still worth a full five stars.
