Fairy Tail Dragon Cry Thoughts

This is more of general thoughts than a review proper so excuse me if the structure is a tad messy. So i went to see Fairy Tail Dragon Cry at a local cinema on the 17th and while i did have a good time overall (The humour was on point), there are definite issues with this movie and not just on a story level. Before we get into it here's the trailer so you can see the quality of film we are dealing with.

Top 10 Favourite Cuts (Animated Sequences) of 2016

Well that certainly was quite a year for anime. After One-Punch Man's excellence last year, Studio Bones decided to fight back to reclaim their place at the top of the anime industry with Mob Psycho 100, Fairy Tail's second series ended with a high note adapting the well liked Fairy Tail Zero spinoff manga, Funimation and Crunchyroll combined to form an Industry Voltron of sorts, Makoto Shinkai became the new Miyazaki apparently, Naruto kind of ended but didn't, Yoshihiko Umakoshi worked himself silly, Terumi Nishii exploded back on the scene with her designwork on Jojos Part 4 and Toei Saved Christmas. It was a bit of a tough year on many other fronts however for a lot of people (Including me) which is why I'm glad that dumpster fire of a year is gone. Lets see how 2017 treats us and just be glad it finally arrived.

Now like last year, the 3 simple rules i set for myself are as follows:
  • I have to have watched the show (no just seeing a cool clip on sakugabooru, i have to have watched a good amount of the thing).
  • The show must have aired this year (only episodes of a continuing show that aired this year count).
  • One sequence per show.
Warning before we continue as usual, there will be spoilers for many shows including but not limited to Mob Psycho 100, Jojo's Bizzare Adventire, Sound Euphonium and more. Now without further adieu.
