Thanks for the kind comment! Fairy Tail is getting somewhere that I dont really get, fights and new forms of power; the story is accelerating so fast that it feels like it can end in a week or so. But there are still the other continents and all, that we've yet to see :c
I know, like what's the deal with Zeref? And what really happened in the future? I'm following through the manga so I can't wait for the next volume to come out! You think it will end soon? I hope it doesn't - but I guess not everyone can be Odacchi :3
Seriously though, following at manga-ka like Hiro Mashima and Tite Kubo from chapter one, it's amazing how much not only the story, but also their art has improved and is still going strong! That's something that I think the anime can't capture as well. I mean, look at Tegami Bachi - there's just no way to translate that beautiful art onto a screen without losing a bit of the artist. But then it's usually made up for with some kickass voice-acting (usually not redubbed versions).
Sorry for the rant And you're really good at studying these artists! I'm sure you've already got your own style and don't even know it.
Zeref is like in a mid-life crisis if that is the correct term to use right now. He is depressed, he has seen many things and done and lost all his hope for the future. Even though he was supposed to be like an evil god of some kind. Well maybe there really isn't someone that is truly evil in Fairy Tail. Even Zeref seems to be like, he is a good person, at least can later on become one. He hated his own being, being a curse to his surroundings and destroying them. It is a bit complicated but well I also guess that not everyone can be Odacchi
Maybe Tite Kubo and Hiro Mashima are too focused on their drawings and from time to time get too caught up on them, like Tite Kubo improved his own style a lot compared to the first chapters of his story but new character introductions and the kind seems to lack a bit. I mean for a manga that is been going on like 10 years, I would expect more characters with more great stories to tell. Diversity. Sometimes there is too much orange on the screen, and same eyes on the manga. Those "grown-up eyes" of Kurosaki. Hiro Mashima feels like he still has a lot to tell. Since there are other continents but if it becomes too focused on the power-ups as it has been for quite a while(lightning-fire dragon, iron-shadow dragon can be examples), like Naruto the series may lose its power balance :c I think that it has lost. And I think in animes a bit of the artist's is always lost, but some are preserved.
Naah man, I am okay with ranting and I do it like all the time Thank you btw! Well If I do have my own style, you will see it in a short time I am thinking of studying a bit of anatomy and creating new characters. Hopefully it will turn out like I want it to! Thanks for such a nice comment
While I think Bleach is still amazing, the one thing that I'm really not sure of is if Kubo-sensei honestly had this whole thing planned out from the start or if it was all Aizen's plan *plz ignore overused meme* I find it hard to believe he could have thought that far into the future. But the use different languages for the quincies and espadas and stuff are cool and integrated nicely enough. I kind of wonder if there was any reasoning behind it or if it's just in there to sound cool...
And I guess having rivals with those sort of counter-abilities is a big deal in shonen manga, but for them to have been beaten so easily when it got down to the wire was kind of insulting considering how hard they tried to beat their idols, you know? I mean, did Natsu and Gajeel even have to go to that trouble? It would have been over so much quicker! Just what is the gap between the dragon slayers?
So you're going to start doing your own characters? Nice I'm looking forward to seeing how they turn out. You've already got a lot of the basics down so just dive in and see what happens! If you don't like it at first, it can only get better the more you work at it And right back atcha!
Kubo Tite might not have thought so far into the future, but I think that every once in a while he sits and makes a plan that aims to cover the 3-4 years worth of content. Also I remember reading something like, he re-reads his own chapters and makes new connections with his current arc or something like that. Not so sure though. Well, if he considered the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis is to be true; he might've given some certain characteristics to the languages that he used and prepared a ground for his characters' basis.
That might be the magic of the shonen. No matter how long that they drag the fights on, we still read them and have fun. But sometimes it is a bit too... unnecessary lets just say. I remember Goku vs Frieza ;_; I think I left watching Dragon Ball Z after or during that fight. Now back to the dragon slayers, they are like devil fruits. Once you eat, swallow some bit of their power, you can use them as your own and I think that is a bit too much ;_; imgur.com/8U9Uivp The gap between the dragon slayers may depend on the status of their dragons. Natsu being the "son" of the The Flame Dragon King Igneel The Mighty First Of his Name.
I sometimes try drawing faces and all but didn't really try something serious. Well since I won't be at home for like 20 to 25 days, starting from 2nd July, I might as well try it. When I am back, I'm planning on uploading so many drawings that I am planning to draw in that time period Thanks btw! Hugging is always good!
You're welcome I get the wanting to do serious things. For some reason I had the idea that you have to reach a certain point before you get to do 'real' things of your own when really there's no better time than the present.
I can see how Kubo might have to backtrack. As much as I like Bleach, there's no way I can keep track of everyone that shows up (at least not by name...). This hypothesis is pretty interesting although I'm not sure whether cultural diversity is more important or if the language is partially to blame for that diversity, but either way it seems I don't get it But maybe I learned something new? If I knew more about the actual cultures of the languages he's taking from, I might be able to see just how accurate the different groups behave in regards to the language they're using. Tbh I love dissecting languages (mostly phonetically) but when it comes to meaning or background, I'm totally lost... *rambling* I'd still like to call bs on Ichigo being all those different things. I mean, Kubo did a good job finally explaining how it all could be possible, but it's still way too complex and oh-this-guy-is-the-chosen-one-he's-unstoppable! to be at all realistic. Even if it's true.
Wow now we're bringing back DBZ. They really know how to stretch screen time! *cough cough hyperbolic time chamber* But Frieza in the anime was pretty funny when you get down to it. If only he would just stay dead after the first few times... The Cell saga and Majin Buu were pretty good though.
So what is the dragon hierarchy then? I think we can assume that Natsu has the coolest, strongest dragon on the side of definitely-not-evil because he's the main hero, (i just looked at that photo and I swear to you I am still laughing Aizen just went too far XD ) *ahem* So my question is are there enough slayers to determine what kind of rank these dragons might have? And would it be determined by age, power type, power level (no overused jokes there ) or something else entirely?
Anyways, hope you enjoy your trip or whatever Internet will be waiting! Also more hugs yay!
