In Volume 9,Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest, Natsu and the team moved to Elentear, after a brief stop in the universe of Edolas. We face many challenges with the potential to take on our biggest enemies. Are they going to win? Let’s see what happens.
While the whole Natsus party plays the key on the cover, it is clearly Gray and Lucy who steal the show in the boxes from here. The two face off against both Mimi and Hakune, powerful opponents they already lost in Volume 9. But, as the two have already said, Fairy Tail never loses to the same people twice, so the wind blows in their favor.
The fight against Mimi takes on the skills of people who aspire to success is a more powerful and hardening contest. Hakune tries to avoid Gray in an illusion, that where Ur and his father are still alive, and that Juvia and her husband have one small son. Gray recognizes this is a dream or hallucination immediately, but with anything he’s ever wanted right before him, it’s difficult to resist the temptation to stay there forever.
The magic on Elentear keeps getting out of control, which quickly destroys the universe. For all involved, Wendy is beginning to make a plan for all, so that it won’t cause the calamity and gives everyone a safe and sound return.
When I saw the X-volume 8 and 9 of Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest, I was talking about how being able to make this multiverse storyline become increasingly funny. Not last but because of the power creep and the new abilities that the cast has been pulling out so far. I think while I have read Volume 10, I have some credit for keeping things relatively restrained.
What the cast feared was foolish, but it still is beyond the realm of libel and hysteria. It also helps that no one has found new magic on his chest in the fights we see that book, and instead it works against his present abilities and strategies. Between these two events and the fact that the arc of multiple different angles can end by the end of the book, I left feeling satisfied with what the world’s gone. The second of the shorter arcs so far has always been, but again it is good enough that when it comes to not having the time or the opportunity to get in over its head it is not what is the long story of it.
It’s nice to not have Natsu being saved for one minute. Fairy Tail has always been very good for helping all the members of its extensive cast, but in this arc in particular Natsu has successfully taken a backseat while Lucy and Wendy get more a chance to shine.
Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest volume 10 comes to the West by Kodansha and continues to be translated by Kevin Steinbach. The translation is well written, without any issues. There is expected to be a Polish release in November in Volume 11 of the series, so we have to wait to find out what’s on our minds.
Volume 10 of The Flying Tail: 100 Years Quest succeedsfully closes the multiverse arc in an interesting way that’s able to keep it from getting inside over its head. Now the series continues onwards into what I hope will prove another entertaining arc.
