Why is Fairy Tail better than the big three?

Pro tip, you can't argue against this.
>>
>>101593572
With this dissapointing Bleach chapter, I can't argue. But it isn't hard to outdo a manga from JUMO
>>
Even if Fairy Tail is better, it's still shit in the big picture.

I tried to get into Fairy Tail but I just couldn't. The fight scenes were extremely, extremely bad. I can't even describe how fucking bad they were. And those villains..

Despite the Tower of Heaven arc being long ago I still can't get over the complete fucking ass-pull that was Erza's fight against Ikaruga. Her strongest fucking armors and swords were being destroyed before Erza could even fucking react, hell even her fire resistant armor was burned off. All of a sudden she "takes off the armor around her heart and trusts her friends" and suddenly Erza is able to take down Ikaruga with one hit. I couldn't even believe it when I saw it.

"Power of friendship" is recurrent in anime but Fairy Tail takes it to the extreme, most of the battles are won by trusting your friends and never giving up.

>>101598480
Come on man. I like One Piece too, but really?
>>
>>101598367

I'm aware of that much but it made absolutely no sense how Erza was able to reverse what was an absolute beatdown. The only other power-up that extreme and as bullshit as that was the fucking ruin that is Ichigo's last fight with Aizen in Bleach. Hundreds of chapters being spent about how overwhelmingly strong Aizen is even before he transform like 5 fucking times. But then Ichigo comes out of a hyperbolic time chamber, and using a method of training that was said to be fairly ordinary he managed to absolutely destroy Aizen in what wasn't even a fight.
>>
JoJo shits on all four.
>>
>>101598706
It doesn't make sense, that's how power of friendship works.

Besides every Erza battle is her getting her ass kicked until she stops wearing her armors.

>>101598745
Not on One Piece, they are really close.
>>
>>101598813
Until she puts on the armor that breaks the rules of magic, just cuz.

Literal PlotArmor. Fuck FT is terrible at everything.
>>
>>101598862
It really is, it's not even laughable. And it's getting worse.
>>
>>101598706

The same happened when fighting with the guy of the tree and the explosions in Tenrou Island.

It would seem Erza was about to die and had no magic left, suddenly she gets inspired and attacks with the power of her friends behind her and beats the guy.

Fucking ridiculous. It happens many many times in the story.

Christ. All those names are terrible too. I remember reading somewhere that Mashima names his main characters after the seasons because a Japanese audience wouldn't "get" a western fantasy type name. Yes, that's proven true...by Mashima himself and his name choices for his goons.

Yeah, but the third one from the left was a blatant copy.
>>
>>101602539
The problem with that is that it's using two One Piece filler episodes as comparisons.

Now, you want actual plagiarism, look no further than Shanks, the strongest mage in Fairy Tail, who is the MC's original mentor and also has no left arm.

No, wait, I meant Gildartz, one of the strongest pirates there are, who is the MC's original mentor and also has no left arm.

Or the Soul Eater arc comparisons.
>>
>>101602803
What Soul Eater arc?
>>
>>101602803
Remember how he was never mentioned beforehand, not even in the flashbacks, until one arc before he first appeared.
>>
>>101602937
Capture Baba Yaga's Castle. Give me a minute to type up the comparisons.

>>101602971
He WAS mentioned in the manga, the anime cut those out because it didn't expect to last long enough to include him. Similar to HxH 2011 cutting out Kite from the beginning.
>>
>>101603026
The thing with Kite was probably done because they wanted to make the pace faster, and it didn't make much sense having that before. It was still shitty.
>>
>>101602971

For a big part of the story Mystogan, Laxus and maybe Erza were the strongest mages in the guild not counting Makarov, no one challenged that fact.

The, out of the fucking blue, Gildarts!!!
>>

Gildarts was mentioned before though.

Okay so, right when the Soul Eater series got popular was when the anime started, the manga had just begun a certain arc, Capture Baba Yaga's Castle. The arc itself ended in early 2009, and in mid 2009, Fairy Tail began the Oracion Seis arc.

In CBYC, a group of 12 heroes advance on the enemy organization (Arachnophobia). We also get a glimpse of someone on a high scale of power, though they don't do much in the arc(Tezca). Unfortunately, they have to rely on a past villain who has a large history with a female MC (Medusa and Maka). Arachnophobia is located in a spider-shaped fortress, and they have something that reverses a person's morals(The Moral Manipulation Machine) in this arc. In order to reach the final boss, they needed to destroy the 8 Locks, each located in the legs of the spider.

Now fast forward to Oracion Seis arc. A group of 12 heroes advance on the enemy guild (Oracion Seis). We also get a glimpse of someone on a high scale of power, though they don't do much in the arc(Jura). Unfortunately, they have to rely on a past villain who has a large history with a female MC (Jellal and Erza). Oracion Seis is looking for something which can reverse light and darkness, effectively reversing someone's morality(Nirvana) which turns out to be a spider-shaped fortress. At the point Nirvana was revealed, either Mashima was caught by his editor and had to change or he realized he didn't have enough people so he changed the legs to 6, because: in order to stop Nirvana, they needed to destroy the 6 Keys, each located in the legs of the spider, wait, sorry, insect thing.

Why the fuck did lucy suddenly become one of the most powerful in the guild. She doesnt do do shit and is useless most of the time

She stuck with a group of good magicians and got herself good keys thanks to that.

Is Rave Master as shitty as Fairy Tail?

Wait people actually read/watch a shitty OP clone?

I don't really know why I do it. I hate everything about it and I've been reading the manga and watching the anime for years. I guess it helps apreciate good shonen.
>>
>>101605084
It's actually pretty decent, and some of it seems planned out, and actually GOOD as a result. It's a better read for sure. Only problem is Mashima's gigantic hardon for altworlds and time travel plots.

When you are done ripping off the canon story and start copying the shit tier filler arcs too...just stop.

Also I can't speak for everyone but breaking the rules of the universe drives me crazy in any fantasy story. If Magic is X and does Y don't all of a sudden have it be Z and do Y' just because of....some armor?!

Eh, I guess it's like my guilty pleasure anime. There are certain scenes that get some legitimate laughs out of me and I a sucker for the "power of friendship!" asspulls, especially in an already light-hearted series. I even choked up a few times as well.

Idunno, it's not perfect, but it's something. I can totally see why someone would not like it though, especially if they already liked One-Piece
>>
>>101606359
Same here, I see all the ridiculous shit and understand why people hate it, but I still can't get enough of it.
>>
Fairy Tail is still too new to be one of the top 3. It still has at least 4-4 more years to go. But the author doesn't seem to be as motivated as the others, and it probably won't have longevity.
>>
Please tell me bleach isn't in this "top 3." Bleach is garbage. I'll take fairy tail any day of the week, over that poor excuses of a manga. Tite has the same characters and story lines and just recycles them, over and over again.
>>
>>101605680
He actually draws a shit load cleaner than Oda. If he could manage to iron out his own style he would be set.
>>
>>101613074
Cleaner maybe, but he doesn't understand flow or choreography too well at all. I'll take slightly off art trying dynamic shit over boring flat lifelessness.
>>
One Piece >>> Fairy Tail > Never watched nuruto and Kubo
>>
>>101613799
Neither dose Oda. His fight scenes are messy as hell.
>>
>>101614126
Really? I always found his fight scenes to be easy to follow. One of the things he does best is involve the surroundings in the battle, something basic I've yet to find much of in other shounen.
>>
>>101614126
No you're just retarded. Battle choreography is one of the best aspects of One Piece. No retarded beamspam, no "I'm actually behind you" garbage you see in other shounen manga.

That's more of a beatdown than an actual fight scene. Something like this is what I mean. The panel flow itself is pretty simple and follows the actions well. Oda tends to make the characters stand out and have different shapes from one another, making it easier to follow, plus like I said before, usually involves the environment in the battle itself in some way. I don't read One Piece FOR the battles, but the fact they're done well does add to it.
>>
Fairy Tail is purely fanservice.

It panders to the retards that wish they had a group of friends that could use magic and have fun while also providing softcore porn-tier scenes for their dick.

As shit as they may be, Naruto, Bleach and One Piece have enough pride in themselves to deliver some sort of storyline that is even the least bit meaningful and important.
>>
>>101614867
Well I guess my problem with them is more his skill as a draftsman. That look's a lot clearer than the one I posted, and no it's not because the quality of the scan, I have a copy of the book in my hands. Dose he draw pages digitally now?
>>
>>101615059
Nope, he actually doesn't do anything digitally, even his coloring is old fashioned. He's widely improved with time, part of his 20-hour workday schedule is coming up with the best way to tell the story page by page and how each of those pages should be arranged. He's good at drawing the line of action and impact and showing stuff.
