Platinum End: Chapter Two

Platinum End chapter two is definitely worth a read for fans of this creative team; the series has its flaws early on, mostly in lack of restraint, and antagonists without much to offer besides padding the story, but this manga has potential.

Fairy Tail #470

This is Fairy Tail’s final arc; this is where it should be pulling out all the stops, with it’s most gripping fights, strongest character development, and heart-wrenching and blood-pumping moments. Unfortunately, it’s hard to see how undermining a character like God Serena is in any way constructive to that effort, and it’s among the most egregious of a string of baffling writing choices Mashima’s made that makes it hard to understand where he’s trying to go with the series, and why the reader should care.
