Plus, people should watch the dubbed version as well if that were to help for Funi to dub the second season.
I didn't even know there was such a thing as ad lock. I agree with you people should watch the dub version but some either can't or won't for a variety of reasons.

The dubed episodes funimation had on youtube seemed very well done.

Someone seemed kind enough to make some videos sampling some of the voices of characters that debut in Part 2. I'll just put it up in case anyone cares (and if it's allowed)...

^Great find, but I wanted to hear Juvia going nuts over Gray... not her mellow self before meeting him. I mean how can I judge that... she's not revealed her true self yet

Actually it's 9-15 year olds

Hence my comment was about them only targeting the dumbest audience member.

Even a 9 year-old would want to slap him and say "no shit!" The director is pretty crap imo.

"Let me explain: By vibrating his teeth at supersonic speeds, Plaqueman creates extremely high pitched sonic waves that resonate with the titanium bones of his enemy, causing them to super heat and explode!"

etc...

So yes, it's stupid humor but it's rooted in classic sentai tropes. It's something frankly even middle aged people would find amusing if they were fans of these sorts of shows.
Allow me to explain. A punch is when you roll your fists up and move it very fast so a hard part of the fist hits a soft part of someone you don't like with the intention of hurting them. The narroator needlessly chimes in when a simple rewrite with Lucy, Happy or Natsu saying something similar could have worked much better. Like Lucy saying you "HOW DARE YOU USE ME AS YOUR MISSILE!" A) it would have been so LUCY and B) no matter how stupid I'm sure most would have laughed there asses off at that, and C) Everyone understands the result of a missile to the face.

What was even worse was the lame jokes about and in the middle of the sudden introduction in the series of the narrator randomly popping in and explaining a basic mixture of 2 known magic power with a voodoo doll (that ii also such a commonly known object people will just get), lets alone something so obvious it wasn't even funny.

Oh and my 10 year old cousin whom just watched it and found it "very stupid" too. Sorry you are wrong in this case, the target market (of a very scientific sampling of only one person , sorry best I could do ) even found it insultingly obvious too and didn't want the explanation.

We all get it was rooted in the tropes of the genre but that still fell on the needless and stupid usage of the trope.

I really love the latest episode, so funny! the last two episodes are so intense, I was hoping that the next episode will be lighter, thank God! I thought Hikaru is boring and lame, but he's very strong. And I'm so happy that this time Lucy didn't complain in his battle with Hikaru

Remember when the narrator had to "explain" that Dranbalt/"Mest" was a member of the Magic Council about five episodes after it was revealed he was a member of the Magic Council?

Girls tend to dot their i's with hearts, things like that. I think it's just her writing style.

Not to deny the obvious Levy Gajeel shipping going on.
I did a little checking and the results were somewhat inconclusive on the one hand the t in metal was replaced with a screw in the word metal in the miss fairy tail contest in both the manga and anime so she does do flourishs. But during the contest she also did snow and the o in both the manga and anime with normal, the world flower was behind her in the manga so couldn't see it and in the anime it was a normal o.

Dang you really don't want to piss off Juvia. Not quite on the level Natsu who frequently has viens bulging out of his forehead but Juvia still really went off.

Does anyone know the song that played during the recap fight of Meledy, Juvia and Erza? The one in the beginning before the Episode title was shown?

How exciting can this anime get..? When Juvia was fighting it was least expected, since I never knew she had the power to be able to match up against one of the KOP. Meledy was awesome.. I love the way she acts. She might be one of my favourite characters hehe =D!

Water is an extremely strong element so naturally someone made of it would be very powerful indeed. It just needs to be stirred up a bit.

They did this part really well in my opinion - the part between Juvia and Meledy. I was freaked out when I heard zombieJuvia's voice though...XD I can see why Erza was freaked out herself lol.

And using a Sense Link on yourself and Juvia, whom you connected to Gray? Freaking cheap ass move there, Meledy. This pretty much means that all three of you will die at the same time! >.>
Ah, gotta love decisions like that made in the heat of the moment...

Of course Natsu will threaten anyone who makes a move against Fairy Tail - ESPECIALLY the Magic Council. They're pretty much useless anyway from what we've seen anyway.

Natsu sure was pissed.
Wonder what Grimoire Heart'll do with Zeref.
Juvia sure got a good beating, but she sure got serious real fast! Awesome!
Great episode.

You know guys it really isn't surprising Juvia is extremely powerful she was a member of the elemental 4 and there power level was supposed to be about the same as S class wizards. Plus she is really pissed and crazy.

Yes she was a member of Phantom's Elite 4, but all but Aria got owned by Fairy Tail's A-ranked mages (Erza took him out with just one attack too) and Natsu took out both Totomaru AND Gajeel. But to be fair, Fairy Tail has several A-ranked mages that are near equal to most other Guilds S-ranked - it's just that Fairy Tail's S-class exam is so tough but once you get there - there's no doubt that you are an S-class mage.

It's just that Juvia never really fought with as much fevor as she is now - Erza sensed the potential but seeing it in action has her going: If she would have fought this way against me, she might have beaten me.

And as for why she changed....
Because it's raining and she doesn't want the rain to rust her armor and get her clothes wet. Bikinis (most of them) were made to get wet.

Well also those 3 A-ranked mages made it to the 2nd round of the S-class test before it was interupted.

I do agree with you I don't think we've ever seen her go full bore at someone and she didn't seem to care much about becoming a S-class mage and probably wouldn't have wen't if Gray wasn't there.

Lots of rare Juvia epicness this week...and Meldy's finally showing some emotion, it was about time her fight got started for real. Feeling sorry for poor Gray, he's got nothing to do with this and he's going through inexplicable pain and mood changes...while stalking Ultear, at that.
The minor chat was pretty good as well, Natsu telling Dranbalt he'll kick anyone's ass was cool, and I'm looking forward to Bluenote...although even if Meldy loses somehow, there's still Ultear, Azuma and RR.

1) It's raining.
2) She was wearing her knight armor, lots of extra weight if all she does is run, and unnecessary noise while moving around.
3) Most importantly, fun-saavisu!

It's clearly her "increases her slipperiness by 1000%" enhancing mud-wrestle specialization armor. In order to help slip away.
