Fairy Tail's final season left me disappointed. I especially enjoyed Fairy Tail Zero, and the Tataros arc while full of plot armor was still decently enjoyable. This season had its moments, but ultimately I didn't enjoy it as those 2. It also left me confused, as there are many plot points that don't add up, or are just thrown out there to either make the season more interesting, or keep the viewers interested without basis.Story: The beginning of the final season is essentially the Avatar Arc, and at first they look like the main villains of the season, but they turn out to be incredibly weak and just fodder. You could skip those episodes and miss absolutely nothing. Ultimately, the main villains are the Spriggan 12, who act as Zeref's personal army. They all have insanely powerful abilities, and apparently are apart of the Alvarez Empire, which is extremely wealthy and powerful (but for some reason we don't hear anything about them previously. You'd think such a powerful empire would at least have been known well earlier in the series). They basically battle against Ishgar in addition to millions of other soliders from the Alvarez Empire (this all happens because Zeref is bored, I guess and wants Mavis. Great reasoning there by the smartest main character in the series). Many other guilds join in helping Fairy Tail, notable ones include Sabertooth and Mermaid Heal. Animation: The animation is solid. Character designs are pretty good. I like Ajeel's design, and God Serena's is interesting. Not much to complain about here. Sound: I've never been crazy about the Fairy Tail soundtrack throughout the series, but it does fit the story and the theme of the guild. So while I may not be a huge fan of it, it does fit the series pretty well.Characters: If you're interested in the final series, chances are you probably already know who the main characters are, what their personalities are, and what there relations are with other characrers. So I'll use this section to talk about the Spriggan 12. I'm not a fan of them. Many of them have either have bland and forgettable personalities (outside of the eccentric God Serena, though we barely see any of his fights and Wall Eehto), or are extremely overpowered and use their abilities poorly (Jacob and Brandish are notable in this). Irene and August have the most overpowered abilities, and have their fights end due to plot armor. This whole series was poorly written.Overall: This season disappointed me a ton. Too many things don't make sense (how does Erza struggle to defeat Ajeel who's one of the weaker Spriggan 12 members then suddenly punch a meteor controlled by Irene) and the new villains are not interesting and lack character development. It feels like this season was rushed. I understand the anime tried to stay consistent with the manga (which I read and also didn't like in terms of the final season), but for such a popular anime to close out this way, especially when some seasons were great, it's disappointing.

I'm honestly disappointed, this was an okay ending but it could've been so much better I've gone through the whole series praising it because I just thought it was so good but now I'm rethinking all of that, like the episodes I've admired so greatly have lead up to this? It wasnt the worst ending ever it could've been worse but it just could've been so much more. And as I sit here I realize that this is the last. I can watch all the ovas, movies, and episodes all again, but I will never get anything more out of that I already have. I just wish I couldve gotten the satisfaction, the closure that I needed from this, what was supposed to end off a great series. After zeref was defeated I felt a feeling of almost emptiness, like there wasnt anything left, and I guess I was right. The very last episode is what really saddened me, not because it was the last, but because I never got what I truly wanted. The fact that you just KNEW that natsu was going to tell Lucy that he loved her but he completely ignored that and told her they were going on a quest and that to me was so stupid, what's the point?? Why couldn't they have just given us what we wanted, it was the last episode anyways they could've just left off on a happy note. Also what bothers me more is the other relationships, the fact that gray and juvia were still acting like that even a year later towards eachother? That's just so unrealistic like they would atleast get closer to eachother maybe even date I would think. Another thing that was unrealistic was the fact that nobody dies in the battle, the huge battle with over a million soldiers and 13 supposedly unbeatable opponents. They could've atleast taken out a not very important person like nab or laki, maybe even someone from another guild, but they all came back. With an ending you need to either make or break the person who's watching it. You need to make the ending so great. You have two options, you can leave on a happy note, or a very bad one. In my opinion the best example to leave on a bad note was Your Lie In April, it was so magnificently done that I can't even hate it, they had a great ending but it broke me inside, it left me with satisfaction but how I wish it could've been so much happier. I guess this would be a good but bad representation of a happy ending because everything turned out right, nobody dies, and everyone was happy in the end, and the fact was it had so much potential, it could be and was so great, but the writers ruined it. It just goes to show that it wasn't just Fairy tail it was actually a fairy tale.
