The good thing about this anime. Is that it makes you really hyped up about what they would do when the say "we'll attack together one chance" (They phrased it out something like that). Then you would see some awesome combos that they do. Even though the don't defeat the opponent it still gives you a thrill.
Laxus is back to get revenge. Hope there is another combination between the FT guild against Grimore Heart's Leader =D. Can't wait!

I don't recall there being gifs for the other episodes as of late. What makes this one so special?

Considering it's arguably the best episode of the arc imo. Even better than erza's fight against asuma. My jaw just dropped when I saw the epic group work they delivered against hades. The music just makes it even better.

Oh and Laxus is back and is going to blow **** up.

Good entrance for Laxus. And the combination was good as well - shows what a team they are.

(When I was watching I was thinking how he should be ashamed of himself to be boasting how he's so much better than a bunch of teenagers, lol... when he's got so many folds of years to improve his magic than they do)

nope thats not why.
its beacuse voices dont fit, and the people doing the voices sound as if they arent getting payed enough and lack motivation. :/
they also change some of what they say in the dubs, like in tue original there may be little cussing(example) and in dub they cuss up a storm. thats kinda why i like this subed.
i tried the dub of this, they voices dont work with my brain 
i hope this series goes to at least 200+ episodes

Can't deny that. Pretty sure I just blinked there with my jaw slightly dropped. You know mentally Wendy can't die here, but it's still a case of "wha...."

Huh. You clearly didn't watch enough of the dub. Unless, of course, you saw the Animax dub and somehow mistook it for the Funimation dub. Because I can clearly see where you're coming from if that's the case; the Animax dub was, without a doubt, truly every bit as awful as you say it is, so your complaints would make perfect sense in regards to a dub such as that. However, the same simply cannot be said for the Funimation dub in the slightest.

First, never before have I heard a dub with such solid, enthusiastic performances, especially before the Funi dub of Fairy Tail. In fact, it enhances the scenes, if anything. If scenes are funny, they end up funnier. If scenes are sad, they still bring a tear to my eye. None of that would come across from an unmotivated dub like Animax gave. In fact, the only motivation Animax put into it is giving random characters random European accents, each and every one of which sounds as fake as anyone can make it.

Second, you say dubs cuss up a storm? Not in the Funi dub, they don't. Seriously, I could barely even count five times they cussed in the first four episodes total. In fact, they barely even curse once every five episodes; that's how often they swear. The dubbers at Funimation even specifically stated that they're refraining from "cussing up a storm" for this series. They feel that if they only curse during serious, intense moments, it will make those scenes sound more powerful, because that's the kind of series they think Fairy Tail is; it gives them the kind of impact that doesn't get across when they overuse cursing.

Lastly, the Funimation dub is not only a bit more colorful than any subtitles I've read for Fairy Tail, but it makes the whole experience seem fresh. I don't know how long that freshness is gonna last, but it's certainly lasted 36 episodes, and I'm more than eager to see how the rest of it goes. And I'm hoping Funimation will dub those 200+ episodes you're hoping for.

I'd talk more, but we should take it to the "dub discussion" forum. There I've even posted a few videos with dub audio from later episodes of the Funimation dub, as well as audio from the Animax dub which, as I've said, is as every bit as awful as you claim it to be. Just watch those videos on that forum and say which one sounds familiar. Trust me, it'll be worth your time.

It's pointless to discuss about dubs and prove each other wrong, especially about if the voices fit or not, as that is a personal thing for every one of us. You know what they say, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While Funimation dub is indeed good, some people out there, like myself always prefer the original in their animes.

Well, I prefer the sub of this series too. But I'm not aiming to see that the other person is wrong. Still, I'm guessing what I am aiming for, if it's clear to the others, is also a pointless discussion...

I for one suck at making GIF's if no request is made ; If you want a gif, request it in it's appropriate thread.

The comboing part was pretty thrilling indeed.. But what I really miss is Natsu using his real powers.. I mean, he is the '' son '' of a dragon. There has been past episodes where he was much stronger than this, where even his skin changed to scale-ish .. If only he would utilize that power dwelling inside him ..

Imagine how much worse it must have been for the Japanese viewers who had an entire commercial break to wait through after Wendy went "poof".

i said used that as an example -.- i didnt say all dubs cuss up a storm. zzz. and im starting to understand some japanese from watchung enoughsubs so i dont need to read that much.
and its my preference. so dont go assuming i pity ppl or just hate dubs beacuse ppl watch em, and i watched both, english voices just dont fit anime to me. just my preference, i just hate when ppl complain about watching it and still watch it and complain more, like that person that sayd he could hear muffling.


finally made it to episode 50 just to have to rewatch it because my brother wanted to watch it now, he originaly thought it was a "gay" series. ._.

You're talking about me. Although you made a mistake, I wasn't bitching about the dubs as if I'm watching it because I'm not. I was checking the English dub one-time only to get a grasp in how the quality is and what voice actors are doing my favorite characters. The NO muffling sound was concerning Mystogan's talk and it was just a thingy I wanted to mention, no big deal at all. immblueversion stated already, I must have watched the Animax dub and not the Funimation one who is, in my own opinion, pretty good but I still stick to Japanese.

For reasons unknown to me, I end up loving almost every single episode of this anime. I don't know if it's the fights, the camaraderie, the emotional moments, or all of the above; I just know that I absolutely adore the show.

Natsu and co.'s teamwork against Hades in this episode was pretty amazing. I have to admit; I was just waiting for Laxus to makes his epic entrance, which he did, after seeing all the lightning in the previous episode. Laxus' duel with Hades in 118 will be awesome.

Not sure why everyone is so impressed with their combo, it's not like it did any damage at all. The group faced against Hades and he annihilated them all. Hades going pewpew made me laugh so hard. Also while Laxus' entry was indeed entertaining judging by power levels it won't make that much of a difference.

Because sometimes people value other stuff except the result? It's not about if they did damage or not, it's about how hard they tried. They practically went all out on him with cool combo attacks and they were really in a sync as a team.
