^ I assume she could get it on credit...one year of missions would be enough to cover it, I guess. How much could she have grown by then?

She knew Ol' Rob so Makarov probably gave her some help in starting up and whatnot. A little mind you, Erza's not the type to live by credit alone.

And she's obviously not going on S Class missions at that age yet, so how does she suddenly get all that money to afford fancy armor she'll just keep growing out of?
Well, even as a kid she was cutting down slavers while dualwielding full-sized swords. I suppose she could handle tough jobs for her age, adults allowing.

Besides, it's just a breastplate and set of pauldrons. Kid-sized and nonmagical. How expensive could they be? The S-class money is for stockpiling magical and designer armors.

Tut tut, brand names are always expensive! I bet she could take on B-rank requests even as a kid though.

They should realize she would make a good spokesperson and just make it for her for free and use her for their advertisements.

"Heart Kreuz: You might not need the power to destroy entire cities, but don't you feel safer knowing you could if you wanted to?"

(Kudos to anyone old enough to get the reference)

Pretty sure Makarov would help her in the financial aspects.

Help give her room and board? Sure. Pay for fancy armor? Hell no.

Makarov is all about people pulling their own weight.

The next part spoilers the end of this arc so:
Spoiler:

They'll probably do 12-20 episodes of filler. The anime is way, way, way to close to the manga at this point. They need to create some space.

- flashback arcs with Erza, Natsu, Laxus, Raijin Tribe, Gildartz, etc. back when they were children in Fairy Tail.

"Fairy Tail 5-7 years ago."

- flashback episode between Lucy and her mom. Flashbacks between Lucy and her dad. Lucy's life 5-7 years ago.

- side stories involving Exceed's search for a new place to settle down

- arcs involving the other guilds

- the tower of heaven trio's adventures in foreign lands

- side stories involving any Fairy Tail member up until the time the Tenrou Jima Arc ends but not before Cana or Laxus come under the care of Makarov (since they're the first in Natsu's age range to join the guild).


Just think "History of Konoha" arc from Naruto: Shippuden.

What I wouldn't count on:

- I doubt they'll delve into stories in between this arc and the next arc. They'll save these tales for the next round of filler.

- Team Makarov stories from Makarov's youth. Makarov's adventures may have their own manga arc.

- Flashbacks with the Dragons. Because they are supposed to remain veiled in mystery for now.

*can't stop laughing*

Ah, great finish to the fight, and we even got a serious lecture afterward but the aftermath was HILARIOUS! I kept rewinding the ep through the Erza parts - she really is comedy GOLD given form. Declaring a 'healing battle' against Wendy ... XDDD

Everyone had great comedy in the 2nd half - it was fantastic. It didn't seemed forced in anyway, the laughs just kept building on top of each other.

Well Makarov treats her like his own god-daughter. I get that Wiki's may not always be correct, but according to Fairy Tail's wikia

"he viewed Erza as sort of the daughter he never had. Because of this favoritism, Erza became unquestionably loyal to him"

Which was what convinced me. Anyway's, it's just armor so yeah. :3

-Episode 120-

I thought the conversation between Makarov & Purehito was pretty darn amazing.

And Gildarts teasing Laxus .. he's really changed.

LASTLY, NURSE-ERZA FTW LOL. Wondered why no one mentioned it

We were in too much shock of Nurse Erza not only stealing Wendy's patients, but even getting Makarov, Gildartz, and even Laxus in her line. XDD She's so damn good at the seducing...but following thru is just...

"Actual ability is not truly important in a battle. What is being tested is your heart."

"A-a battle, you s-say?"

"Hey! Don't be scaring Wendy like that!!"

So funny. XD

Heh, you can really tell the people behind the anime have much love for this story. They really know how to expand on the manga and add in bits that are funny and interesting. And rather than make up episode after episode of filler, they add in their filler into the story itself. Both the final segment of the Hades fight, and the campy stuff after, were well done.

And I do like how Gray keeps wondering where Juvia is, and if she's okay. Looks like she is growing on him, heh...

Regarding the Hades fight, I think I actually like the anime version better. In the manga, it felt like he lost because his dark heart was destroyed. While in the anime it was still a major factor, it also added a bit more balance in making the fighting characters a strong factor as well.

The tree revived itself. Good news for Fairy Tail.
Victory! Finally!
Making fun of Natsu while he slept, Juvia & spanking, Erza as nurse... & whole bunch of other post battle stuff were totally LOL
Zeref looked pretty scary... guess the fighting is nowhere near over for out fav guild.

Actually the tree had help in its revival courtesy of Ultear. That was one sexy pose they gave her.

And as for the studio love, Mashima is probably very involved in the planning as well. If you remember hiw his first work was handled, you can see why he's so into it.

Guess Erza didn't need a seduction armor after all! LOL @ the response from the guild...once again, the padding was very decent, Hades' last stand made things a bit more interesting, and the comedy is always welcome. Looking forward to the next episode!
