Indeed, who is worthy enough to take on the prestigious, but daunting task of leading and representing Fairy Tail?
Well, I’ve been going around the web reading others’ thoughts on this. In this post, I list some potential candidates with my thoughts on them, summing up with who I would like to be “it”.
1. Makarov Dreyar
Fairy Tail will never be the same without Makarov. That has been a long-held statement ever since. When Makarov attempted to resign as guild master to atone for Laxus’ rash actions in the Battle of Fairy Tail, the members were not hearing of it. Also, when Gildarts, the fifth guild master, appointed Makarov back as the sixth guild master, everyone did agree that he was meant to be guild master forever.
However, after the disbandment, which was decided on by Makarov himself, I doubt that he would be enthusiastic to return as the seventh guild master. After all, he disbanded the guild and then, after only year, he would be willing to assemble everyone again? I do not think so.
2. Lucy Heartfilia
I would actually like to see Lucy as the next guild master. Her love for her guild runs deep, just like everyone else. However, she did keep tabs on everyone during the one year apart and she did take up a journalism job just so she could locate everyone as something to do on the side.
However, a guild master is usually one who has more developed and stronger magic than everyone else. Hmm… Still, I would like to see her be picked as the one.
If you would love to read this omake, but could not find an English scan of it on the Internet, you can read it on this forum post. Just click on “Mostrar” (Spanish, translates to “show”) to expand the post.
I love all of the Fairy Tail omake as it allows Fairy Tail characters to go out of their comfort zones. They portray scenes we do not usually see in the canonical manga chapters. Particularly, they act out scenes that fans would love to see in an official, although not canonical, Fairy Tail manga. So, in a sense, the omake issues (of Fairy Tail) are fan-services. 🙂
Before I go on, let me point out that this omake’s title has nine (9) letter “E”s in the “Men”. Just in case you were wondering and could not properly distinguish and count the “E”s in that long “Meeeeeeeeen”.
This particular omake, as can be gleaned from the cover, has a zombie structure to its story. Thankfully, it does not involve getting eaten or bitten by infected/zombified characters. However, the simple act of being smelt by an infected or in this case, Ichiya-fied person, is just so CREEPY!! Really!? Being smelt on!?
Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki, with his warped sense of the concept of handsome plus his Perfume Magic, has come up with an “ultimate perfume”. This gets accidentally poured down a drain, with its essence then being spread around Magnolia. The essence changes people’s faces into Ichiya’s image and makes them act like zombies, sans the gore and morbidities.
