Final episode of anime:
I liked the small touches they added to the "Levy scene", in the manga all we really got to see was her face (if I remember correctly), but in the anime they added scenery of the apocalyptic world, and showed the ruins Levy was actually in.
The final episode was pretty good! Loved the scene at the end with future Lucy turning around and Jellal being in shock, they did a great job animating that. Hope it does continue, too.. given the "to be continued" message at the end I think it's likely to in the future.
When does anyone whose name isn't Simon die anyway?
I'm sure Mashima doesn't have the balls to kill off Gray
TTGL Simon was too man to die. Anyway, I'm sure Ultear is going to sacrifice herself to save Gray cuz ya know...SUPER NAKAMA POWAH SACRIFICE TO ATONE FOR SINZ is totally what Mashima is capable of doing. Then again Mashima could just troll us with Juvia hallucinating...
Yes the anime. I see your point but Fairy Tail fillers are generally better since they do develop characters as they give some plot. Who can remember the Bubble Butt gang and how that ridiculous plot gave us more depth into Wendy's character.
