Hello! I've been reading the ending chapters of Fairy Tail's manga and I have to say it is not that great. I reminds me of Bleache's ending and Naruto's too. Except Naruto's wasn't that bad, it just had a random boss come out of nowhere for no reason. Anyways the NAKAMA OVER POWER UPS are so annoying in this series. I mean wow the good guys win every time. I'm like SOMEONE DIE lol! The writing is poor and rushed. Way too many plot holes and enemies who are like, "YEAHHH IM SO POWERFUL YEAAAHH!" POOF! DEFEATED! With one friendship powered punch to the face or gut. Also the fanservice is annoying. I'm not here here to read hentai. I mean I love boobies, big butts, and camel toes, like any guy but come on. I can't have a boner watching an anime reading a manga. What are your thoughts?

I have to agree that it all seems a little rushed. The fight scenes are not as exciting as I would expect and it was a little disappointing that the King of Dragons, of all people, would be defeated so easily, especially considering he has been around FOREVER. I am hoping the conclusion improves and doesn't leave me feeling like it doesn't make sense.

Naruto, for all of the flaws in the ending, certainly ended better than Bleach did by any stretch. The main flaw with the ending to Naruto is that it tried to cram too many fights and too many things into one arc, instead of spreading it out properly - so a lot of the impact and such was not as great as it could have been.

Fairy Tail has never been well-written, though. It's always been full of plot holes and inconsistent fights and action, with the power of friendship and fan service taking a front seat to a coherent story. I haven't read the manga in a while, but from what I last saw of the "ending" arc, it didn't seem to be doing that great.

It seems like a rush to finish, which is common in long-running series like this I guess. Sadly, there have been pretty much no series every written of great length which were "action" based like this that ended "well." Naruto did alright, but not good - it was adequate. Bleach did poorly, with the story rapidly spiraling out of control and the ending being impossible to make good. Fullmetal Alchemist I think had a good ending, and I would rate it above these, but even in that (and it's not QUITE as long by any stretch) the ending seemed a bit rushed and parts a bit unsatisfying just to force a final conclusion.

Etc etc.

Yes. With how Irene went out, with how Zeref went out, with how Acnologia went out and various other things, I think all the objective readers of the manga can all agree that the Alvarez arc has been piss poor. It has been the worst final arc I've read in a series period. Hiro, how the hell do you have a magic drained, out of energy Erza get every single bone in her body broken, then manage to have her one good arm left push her off the ground to cut down a meteor falling out of orbit? And then completely coming out of it unscathed and defeating her mom with a headbutt? By the way Hiro, when you have a villain who's constantly repeated how she wants her daughter dead, has sent out people to go kill her, has broken her daughter's entire body, stole a friend's body of said daughter, and even summoned a god damn meteor out of orbit to completely crush her like an ant (Fujitora style), you CANNOT have her then do a complete 180 on her personality and say how she's always loved her... How do you have Zeref extract Fairy Heart (the most powerful magic in the world) out of Mavis and into himself and have him get one shotted by a wounded Natsu? As I recall, Zeref described it as a "Savage blaze of emotions!" Don't even get me started on Acnologia. A villain that literally had no backstory other than being a once complete human who bathed in the dragons blood so much, he turned into one. Now all of a sudden he has a sob story at the VERY END of the series? A contradicting, hypocritical one at that? Don't get me wrong, I found his character to be the most bland, boring final villain of all time and was in need of character depth, but Hiro wtf is this?..



So yes, I'm sure anime only viewers will be hyped considering they most likely don't know what's in store for them. Although for me, this will go down in history on what NOT to do when you write a battle manga.

Going with the final chapter thing, if enough people express how they wanted a NaLu better ending on his Twitter account, he could always do a "remake" chapter for the final tankoubon. with where they do kiss. This is since a volume often have chapters specifically made for that volume.
Also, they bring that up at his panel at NY Comic Con in October.

Seriously, "Rave Master" a better ending. Even if there was no confession or wedding scene, a lip kiss that is not obscured would have been good enough for some NaLu fans like me. At least they somewhat got together.

Pretty much all of the long running manga that I have read has had an ending that seemed out of control, hard to follow or just rushed for one reason or another. It was clear a few arcs ago that I was going to be disappointed with FTs ending. Mashima Hiro did such a good job with character building in this manga that I had to see it through. Even the fighting in FT is good. What it lacks is a proper end to the battles or fights. Its all the same since the first arc. Over hyped enemy that FT should have no chance at defeating then boom "friendship punch". It was less obvious early on but still it has always been there. Am I disappointed....YES, but I am happy it is almost over. It has been a good read. Just always lacked a good finish to the arcs.

It was okay. It would have been better if it had ended a couple arcs sooner, but at least it was more or less conclusive. It was pretty much what I had expected, it didn't exceed my expectations, and I didn't have the highest expectations for it in the first place, but it was decent more or less. It may be because of nostalgia since this was the first weekly series I followed, but I'm glad I kept up with it to the end.

The ending was a major disappointment. It didn't feel like anything had concluded

I feel like the ending was pretty good. I mean, it was an open ended ending, but that's what I feel like it needed to be. That's what a lot of manga have been doing lately so maybe one day we could come back to it at some point maybe and make a sequel or a spinoff of some point, but considering all things and how the series went, I wasn't surprised how it ended at all.

Lucy and Natsu confessing, lip-kissing, getting married, and shown with at least 1 kid would be the best NaLu ending for me.

The ending was pathetic, in my opinion, this last arc can't touch some of the earlier arcs in the story.
