When an unstoppable force descends upon Magnolia and Fairy Tail, the entire town is transported to Edolas, a world where magic is in short supply. There, a power-hungry kingdom plans on draining every last drop of magic from the captured guild – unless someone can stop them fast. As Natsu and the few left behind search for their friends, they discover a parallel plane where a tough-as-nails Lucy runs a bizarro version of Fairy Tail, and Erza is a ruthless enemy who hunts down rogue wizards.

Meanwhile, Carla and Happy stumble upon a cat-filled land where their shocking origins are revealed and a terrible betrayal comes to light. Will Natsu’s team be able to save the guild when they can’t even trust each other?


Well, things are making a strange turn and once we get past the filler episodes the world of Fairy Tail is turned upside down. This series of episodes show both the worst and the best of the Shonen Jump franchises. The worst of it is the tireless filler episodes that permeate through these logger series. It almost feels like they are just milking us for more money. The best comes in the for of the story twist and this one is wonderful. A full flip of personalities and a all out save them all situation puts the new phase of the series looking like it is going to be a blast.

I fouled some of the personality reversals a lot of fun and a few of them annoying. Gray is often bothersome but the the other world Gray is really over the top. That utter change in all of them is going to be the key to this arc. Fairy Tail does a great job of being fun and entertaining, but it also does a superb job of telling a story that is full of adventure and honest emotion and friendship.

The bond between these stranger people is once again at the heart of a arc. It sustains the story in the goods time and bad, but with this arc there the times are just down right odd. I have a feeling that there will be plenty more of unusual situations and plenty of fun.

Overall Grade: B+

Moving into a new acr can be great and awkward at the same time. I would have to say that the transition into this arc was more awkward than great. Once they got to where they were going things turned around.  I still find Natsu very distracting and rather tiresome, he is also fun to watch. The rest of the cast really makes this series worth the time. I am really looking forward to how it develops and how Natsu and Lucy end up saving the rest of Fairy Tail. Keep it coming.
