    Finally ? The dude just finished a fairly successful (not saying good) series that lasted eleven years weekly last summer. You'd think he'd take a longer break.....or if he wanted to go on, that he'd just continue with Fairy Tail, after just maybe taking a hiatus or something.

    Honestly can't think this is because he had any new ideas he wanted to try instead of Fairy Tail....because Fairy Tail was a cheaper, fanservice driven derivate of Rave and he never even bothered to put any kind of depth or proper worldbuilding in place for it for eleven years. I just don't think he really has any actually promising story ideas in him anymore.

    It already had a prequel while it was still running....and again, he coulda just continued with Fairy Tail propper after a timeskip or something but fuck it :catprone

    I mean think of all the unanswered questions, all the deep, relatable characters whose story we have yet to see resolved, all the lore left untapped.


    ....in short, no.

    He won't do that because that'd be effort.

    Also please drop the ecchi and actually bother to have proper story and characterisation instead.

    That's what I respect about Mashima, his writing isn't good save for the Tartaros arc, but his work ethic is unbelievable.

    Just because it's shit doesn't mean it isn't fun to read. Lots of people had a blast shitting on Fairy Tail. We just stopped complaining and taking it seriously.

    True, but I'd still preffer space to be given to something which will actually make an effort, rather than just Hiro being lazy and uncreative as a writer for another 500 chapters.

    I could argue with you on all counts, but Fairy Tail is objectively bad.

    There are moments when the main character gets a one time powerup handed to him by a former villain who just shows up, see Gerard and his magic flame powerup. (No, if you wish to "but actually" on this point, Shadow Luffy uses the concept of Moria's fruit, is the result of the refugees in the forest and it set up Shadow Asgard Moria as a possibility)

    There is an arc where the main characters get turned to kids for 2 and a half chapters, for no reason.

    The entire Keith Shelter centric arc literally collapses in on itself because Hiro thought to retcon Keith Shelter out of existence at the end of the arc.....so a guild that never existed somehow was invited to send a representative to a Guild Alliance meeting to help take down one of the 3 most powerful Dark Guilds in existance. Also the arc's antagonist knew where the Guild that was actually just an illusion put up by one ghost to a single twelve year old girl even was, somehow.

    Future Rogue killed almost the entire human race because his cat died.

    There was a completely pointless flashforward where Romero was the main character for one and a half chapters, because Hiro couldn't have Natsu not be in the series for even half of a single volume.

    The first timeskip was utterly pointless because the entire guild being frozen in time, except for some extremely unimportant D listers no one ever cared about, meant that none of the underused secondary characters got to develop at all.

    Natsu never once actually made even a token attempt to accomplish his "goal" of finding Igneel and got his resolution handed to him without having to do anything.

    There was an entire chapter dedicated specifically to teach Natsu to avoid fights he can't win, and that same arc Natsu ignored it and was completely fine, making any kind of powerscaling virtually pointless at this point.

    Ivan, Makarov's estranged evil son and one of the two plot points Hiro ever properly foreshadowed in the series (the other being Zeref existing), was left completely undeveloped and was relegated to a pointless secondary antagonist for half of one arc before being booted off the series for good, without any kind of explanation for what happened between him and his father, so that his villain spot could be taken by Future Rogue and his stupid stupid hair.

    Hiro drew this and expected it to be intimidating



    And let's not forget the man purposefully took away Lucy's big moment during the tournament due to cheating that no one just bothered to check for, had her fail again in the next round and then booted her off the tournament so the main female character, who actually uses real magic instead of mutant powers pretending to be magic, got publically humiliated in front of thousands of people and never got a chance at redeeming herself. And he just kinda never thought that was worth doing anything, except to have her run into a dragon who melted her clothes. >_>

    That's all just off the top of my head.

    The thing for me is, I'm getting older and losing my interest in anime/manga 2 of my faves are on constant hiatus and all I read on a constant basis is Tokyo Ghoul and One Piece which is becoming a chore. Mashima's writing is not good, but it keeps me entertained and that's really all I could ask for. Plus I know of him, so I know the story would at least be somewhat interesting.

    I love how you ignored all those specific examples of terrible writing and just tried to pretend none of those points are valid and it's all about your interpretation man.

    You claimed OP was worse written than FT, I gave you examples of shitty retcons and terrible management of characters and their stated goals. Unless you can find a way to consistently be able to refute all these points, you are not allowed to say that and not come out looking like you just don't have anything to say so let's just insinuate my unaddressed critical points are all groundless and come from a place of personal antipathy.

    If the ecchi becomes more explicit and the Shounen part is removed, I will read this.

    But ONLY if he does either of those things.

    the " Shounen " part is his greatest dismay ...
    he's forced to use morally right outcomes.. even if the enemy is stronger.. he has no choice but to make the good guy win even tho there's no logical explanation how he would win ( Friendship battles )
    since his fans are seriously attached to the characters.. and doesn't want them to die or lose ..
    its a great setback tbh ..

    but then again using " Shounen " gathers a huge amount of Audience.. if its for money.. he'll do it again :dead
