Okay, I didn’t actually cry myself a river. But it sure was enough for me to shed tears. My brother told me to watch Angel Beats! without crying and I took him up on his test; but I failed. It wasn’t until the end where I was overcome with so much emotion over what transpired in the last 5 minutes of the series. There were a few other parts in the anime that were really sad as well but they weren’t enough to make me cry (almost did, though). But coupled with the bonds that the characters developed with each other and the execution by the director, it’ll probably be one of the more memorable endings (or scenes) that I’ll ever see in anime.
Fairy Tail – The Final (?) Chapter(5/28/2013)
I finally caught up and finished Fairy Tail yesterday and man did I have goosebumps. This was probably the first anime (or maybe it was Sword Art Online, I forgot) that really put me into this otaku phase (with the exception of Pokémon), and I’m excited to say for myself that Fairy Tail was a great series. Specifically towards the ending, everything about the last few episodes was great. I was thoroughly entertained by all the action, dialogue and execution of the background music to fit every mood for each scene. Since I knew that the anime was ending (or at least, taking a hiatus), I did have the feeling in this last arc that this really was going to be the final battle for Fairy Tail (as far as the anime goes), and along with the final-battle-esque opening theme for this arc, Fairy Tail was done justice.
The final representatives for Fairy Tail were alright. I kinda wish they were different. I’m being a little baised here, but I wish that the final Fairy Tail team ended up with the line-up of Natsu, Erza, Mirajane, Gajeel and Juvia. You know, just because everyone loves the Juvia and Gray angle, and just because Mirajane is hawt stuff ;). That’s just me though. I could probably replace Gajeel with Gray, but then I would miss out on the Goku/Vegeta like interactions between Natsu and Gajeel. But anyways, that doesn’t matter, it is what it is.
The anime ended in the biggest cliffhanger I’ve ever seen. I guess I’m gonna have to read the manga to find out what happens next but ehhh, I’d rather watch anime than read manga honestly. Nothing against manga, but I love watching anime. Can’t wait to see who Zeref is, and what happened after the Grand Magic Games.
