This thread is why I believe that the fairy tail series is not very well done and how the creator Hiro Mashima has let the series down with his poor decisions. The first issue is the lack of character development how can the main character not change in a emotional way for 400 chapters he has no sense of responsibility or moral maturity. All of the characters are like how they were in the first episode it's just that now they are all friends. The second issue is that nothing bad happens to the fairy tail members they just happen to stay alive even the crappy side characters that nobody cares about or are even relevant or useful. The third issue is that they have gone so off track about the plot natsu doesn't even look for igneel the whole reason why we meet him at the start. lucy had a chance to get all the celestial spirit keys and she hasn't even done it. I think that this is enough ranting to start.
