Water and Ice

I love the element of water and ice used in battle in anime and cartoons, in this case Pokemon, Nickelodeon's Avatar series (water benders), and Fairy Tail anime. Enjoy! (all pictures sourced from google images)

Fairy Tail 2

If you've seen my blog you would have seen my previous post on Fairy Tail here , where I detailed my favourite characters Natsu, Lucy, Gray and Erza. But now that the manga and the anime has expanded so much, I have grown to love many of the other characters (some who may have been bad before but are too cool to ignore) as well which I will add to the list now.

Wendy Marvell
A young girl, the Sky Dragon Slayer whose main fighting function is to help speed up and strengthen others. Very cool, and I think her main storyline function was related to Mystogan and Jellal.

Juvia Loxar
The rain woman who uses water to fight; and is hopelessly in love with Gray Fullbuster. She has one of the coolest fighting types.

Mysterious and rarely appeared in the guild; he turns out to be the Edolas version of Jellal and went back to Edolas to rule the world.

Laxus Dreyar
The Master's grandson who turned against the Fairy Tail guild but in one of the most recent episodes he helped (or tried to, at least) Natsu and the rest to defeat Hades.

An enemy but her story is just too cool and her fighting moves are just too awesome!

the Strauss siblings with lots of backstory:

Lisanna Strauss
She disappeared, thought to have died but was living in Edolas world.

Elfman Strauss
He had a lot of guilt because he thought he killed Lisanna, but overcame it to do a full-body transformation.

Mirajane Strauss
The big sister, whose innocent charm can turn into a vicious demon form to fight. Very powerful!

and finally, the Master:
He heaves a lot of burdens because no one would take after him, even after 7 years of disappearing... the coolest attack, Fairy Law, one of the three trademark Fairy Tail moves!

And there you have it, some of my other favourite characters, though I also like many others who I may put down sometime later. Now for one of the cooler action sequences with Erza Scarlet and her Edolas counterpart Erza Knightwalker:

I Heart Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail is a super cool manga-turned-anime that I follow religiously and I probably have watched 70% of its episodes multiple times. Some of its episodes can be super funny (especially their facial expressions but that's standard for all manga/anime), exciting fighting scenes or sometimes emotionally moving, especially at the end of some story arcs. Fairy tail touches on many deep themes like dealing with issues in the past, loyalty, choosing your destiny, family ties, frienship, comradship and love.

These are some of my favourite characters:

Natsu Dragneel

The main guy in the manga/anime. He's a super awesome Fire Dragon Slayer who often proves himself at his max power in the most crucial times. He is fiercely loyal, fiercely protects his friends and is sometimes reckless but gets the job done at the end.

Lucy Heartfilia
One of the main girl characters - she is a Celestial Wizard who can summon uber cool spirits to fight, but she is different from others because she sees her Celestial Spirits as friends whom she fights alongside with.

Gray Fullbuster
Very cool Ice-Make wizard who can create all kinds of ice things from nothing. A bit like Iceman in X-men hmm, only that Gray uses magic whereas Iceman uses his mutated genes... Gray had a dark past and his issues were dealt with in the Galuna Island arc where he fights against Lyon Bastia who was the elder student. His powers are my favourite because they're just too cool.

Erza Scarlet
Finally, Erza is probably my favourite of all the characters because of her uber cool Requip magic and the deep issues that she deals with all the time because of her past. She is also called Titania Erza, the Fairy Queen, because she is the most powerful female wizard in the Fairy Tail guild. She is fiercely loyal to the guild. Her Requip magic allows her to change weapons and armour quickly to have different abilities. Super awesome!

Haven't I said enough? Check it out! There are currently (100+??) episodes. Ice-Make... Finish!
