That opening fight against Hades is one of the best anime fight scenes I have witnessed. Seriously, I love it when they do something other than 1 on 1, and that 5 on 1 assault was animated well, and the chosen music really enhanced it. Obviously, it couldn't be that easy to defeat him, but I felt it was just awesome. I really like to see fights between uneven numbers of people, with the good guys working together as a team. I think this is the evolution that action shonen as a genre sorely needs.

And Laxus is back. I have to admit, from reading the manga, I did wonder why he didn't charge up Fairy Law before revealing himself to Hades, but the explanation that he was no longer in the guild, and thus couldn't use it, makes sense. Probably also couldn't waste time in order to save Natsu. I'm not too thrilled about what happens next, even though it does make some sense.
