One can make people into stone, another can take control over their bodies, third is able to write runes which even guild masters can`t undone and is able turn himself into a demon with powerfull abilities. Pretty much high level if you ask me. But yeah Mahima should have cheat and got rid of them and Laxus by using "curse".

Just because someone is gay doesn't make them less human or whatever.
Just get over it.
I would be the last person to ever complain about gay characters in anime but, what I find really aggravating is Mashima's portrayal of them. He introduced a gay pairing (can we even call it that yet ?) in a group of devils (like literally). He has had an infinite number of opportunities to introduce a gay pairing in FT till now - hell, ErzaXMira is more legit than this Jellal-Erza shit - and he didn't.

What this tells the audience is that, gays can only exist in groups like Tartaros. Normal people can't be gay.

So, yes I do have a problem with his placement of these characters rather than their existence (unlike some others).

Um, okay... 0.o I think you're reading something that just isn't there. Expressing disdain over an imagined slight doesn't help anyone. Honestly, grow some thicker skin instead of being susceptible to every little thing that offends you.

What about Freed? He likes-likes Laxus and in that omake, he looked pretty interested in the nude spread of Blue Pegasus' males. Also, you have to look at this from the timeline of the series. It's medieval times, and of course something that in this day and age is mostly accepted, back in the day, anything that was different was classified as being from the devil, so in a way, Hiro's portrayal of Kyouka and what'sherface being a couple, implicitly, fits with the train of thought of medieval times, JEZEBELS! HARLEQUINS!, and the devil they work for, or created from, Zeref.

Edit, kinda off-topic: looks like Hiro is going to start a new series: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...w-manga-series

Of course this was the response I was gonna get. If you don't see such portrayal as problematic - whether deliberate or not - its your prerogative. I find it problematic because I have seen it way too many times, not just in anime. But hey, when you don't see a problem nobody else should.

Freed's wink-wink nudge-nudge is just that. He's used as a comic relief character and nothing else. And just because the setting resembles medieval doesn't mean it has to have the same prejudices. FT is also a fantasy land whose rules are upto Mashima to make.

Anyway, I don't read FT for its social commentary. Mashima and his editor will obviously shell out stuff that they think will make them bucks - which I usually enjoy. That doesn't mean that there won't be times that I or someone else doesn't like the way certain characters get portrayed.

Ah, don't worry, there's gonna be tons of moments where all the readers aren't gonna agree on something, just wanted to point that out. Topic change, I wonder what Hiro's new series will be about? Part of me wishes he'd continue the monster hunter orage chapters he did, but I know that was just a short.

That would be interesting to see how Mashima will explain it. If he has any idea who Natsu is, then it would be possible.

Also, is Jellal dead? And more importantly, is everyone happy now?

If I think about it, Jellal lost most, if not, all of his battle so far despite being very strong.

Well Jellal didn't really lose, he just got blasted through by surprise.

dafuq...... NOO!!! I want my Erza X Jellal!! Don't kill Sieghart again, Mashima!! He always and always be my favorite character in every manga you made

and also... considering nothing happen so far between Natsu and Lisanna... maybe Natsu isn't a normal healthy boy after all

It seems only Kana is able to see Elfman through... as expected as one of longest-serving member in FT.. He knows everyone deep down...

poor Erza... She's going to break down soon (physically and mentally coz of Jellal)

u do realize that this girl was tortured in the tower of heaven as a child I suspect she's received abuse just as bad when she was their I wouldn't be concerned about that.

as for natsu when u were raised by dragons you lose all ideals of normal right there. Most of us here would've nailed her two or three times before now if we were natsu. (Whether you think lisanna or lucy deserves to be with natsu idc but u cant deny that both are very attractive I personally give lisanna a slight edge in the attractiveness)
Plus his hands are tied literally and figuratively.
