He couldn't be allowed to live as someone not named Jellal who romantically liked Erza. ( in a non-comical manner like Ichiya. )

I would take ''almost no deaths'' over ''only bad guy die'' any day. Besides, Fairy Tail is made in such a way that absence of deaths (except some people that died in the past/offscreen and Simon) and blood is forgivable. Well, for me anyway.

Damn straight, the man overstept his role . Well could argue about Gray's feelings towards Erza, but can be hidden with Fairy Tail comrade feelings. Plus he's a main character which gives him thicker plot shielding than Simon.

I'll agree it was pretty cheesy, though i was totally attached to that scene, thanks to perfect music placement and touching dialogue.

The first Erza/Jellal scene with him finding out what he's done in the past was fantastic. So glad they used 'Reminiscence ~Sad Soul~', which was used a lot during said arc. Jellal's tears were so heavy to watch. Fantastic job there Namikawa Daisuke.

As I've been saying since episode 58 I was waiting on the Lucy X Natsu moments and they really didn't disappoint.
Lucy was just adorable when she blushed<3

Because I got what I wanted the rest of the ep kinda fell into a "yea ok cool....I want moar Lucy X Natsu!" safe to say it got me on a high

The Erza/Jellal scenes were pretty good but this sudden urge I had for the Lucy X Natsu kinda made me not care much for anything else.

No idea why I got this need for Lucy X Natsu, I just hope this urge doesn't cross over to the manga-__-

Me too I skipped watching the last episode of OreImo yesterday just for this.

But Natsu and Lucy turns out to be pretty good, if short and ambiguous. (As always)

First Erza, now Wendy... 'Jellal' is such a heartbreaker...

The whole scene felt overdramatic. I cringed when Jellal started crying over what Erza took him about all the horrible things he did... I mean... Really ? Go back to being a heartbreaker...

Well, when it came to scenes like those, you do have to excuse some cheesiness and drama. Besides, in a way, it felt to me like Jellal had pseudo-reverted back to back before he got possessed by Fake Ghost Zeref with the side-effect of losing his memory. So... kinda like mental re-shota-fication? ( Jellal was always mature despite being kid anyway. )

It just kinda choked a bit higher at that last scene. It was okayyyy.... emotional speeches, amnesia, confused hearts, tears, choking.... cheeesy, but not too bad.... okay, what's with his pained up look... speech about evil, hatred, freedom.... what's this sudden slooooooowwwwwwwwmooooooo with the youu areee freeee scene.

I don't mean that in a bad way, mind. Cheese is better than gritty realism when it came to adolescent drama, but it got a little unexpectedly sweeter at the end. :3

As for being a heartbreaker... I'd say he's doing a really really fine job as he is already.

Oh sure I understand that, but to me it felt weird not because he's Jellal, but because he's suppose to have lost his memories! If he had revert back to pre-evil then that's fine with me- But that doesn't seem to be the case.

I often thought people who lose there memories revert to a more pre-adolescent state myself, their often referred too as being helpless as a child, at least that was my impression anyway.

Well different Memories are stored in different parts of the Brain, in most cases it's the... What do you call it again- Episodic memory, that is lost.

Seeing as how Jellal can still walk, talk and perform complex magic spells, I would say this is the case for him as well.

You know this brings up the question of how Jellal even had a body left.

Could be self-repression then, mixed in with a bit of haze as to his own motivations when he was evil, given that he was kind of brain-washed at the time. If there's no outside influence to direct him after so many years under it I'd likely be confused as well. Thus we can still kind of make an argument that he reverts back to his pre-adolescent state, not in terms of his state of mind but in personality.

I could list a thousand questions related to Fairy Tail, though you just don't ask them. It'll destroy's the fun element.

There's a lot of things I'm willing to overlook, especially in a manga as fun as Fairy Tail, but the Jellal thing is a violation of sanity.
