Fairy Tale – The Infinity Clock

You will have to read this article excerpt from Fandom Post.com and track down the full episode if you are tempted. I couldn’t find anything decent on this episode to share, but below is a Fairy Tale teaser YouTube video with a good sound track.

Using a book from the Heartfilia library as a guide, the members of Fairy Tail split up to track down pieces of the Infinity Clock—a legendary enchanted item that could have the power to bring ruin to the entire world. Standing in their way is a secret order of wizards known as the Legion Platoon, who don’t trust the magic time bomb in the hands of the notoriously destructive guild. As the clock ticks closer to doomsday, an old enemy—Oración Seis—is reborn in a terrifyingly powerful new form. This dark guild has its own plans for the magical timepiece, and if Fairy Tail and the Legion Platoon can’t stop them from using the catastrophic clock, time could be up for the Fiore Kingdom.

Fairy Tail has had some good stuff going on in general as of late with its arcs, especially as we had a lot of fun overall with the Edolas material and the time understanding what the Exceeds are and the changes since a lot of people from that side came to this side. We also had some potentially good stuff with the seven year gap as the main guild found themselves stuck in time for that long, but the show has really dealt with it in a very weak way of making it interesting in seeing the real fallout from it. We’ve mostly just got some minor angst from Lucy over the loss of her father – and it felt like she was more upset about her clothes and apartment. But the time dealing with that and her sister Michelle did have its moments as Lucy coped with the loss of her father a bit.

This set spends its time getting us to Lucy’s old house, which hasn’t sold after all this time, and we see that it’s pretty much immaculate. There are some cute moments as they go through the house and we see some of how she and Michelle deal with each other, but the main storyline does start to kick into gear when they search the library and Lucy finds the Key to the Starry Heavens book. This tells the tale of the Infinity Clock and what it can do, while Lucy relates that it was her most favorite book as a kid. So much so that she researched all the places the child in the book went to and figured out that they were all real. Which, in turn, has her believing that the pieces of the clock that the girl searched for may really be in those locations. That has everyone splitting into different groups to go and find the pieces to bring the clock together.

With the unsettled feeling they all have about the state of the world in general, and knowing that the Infinity Clock when put together could bring chaos to the world, the idea of getting it and keeping it properly taken care of at the Guild makes a lot of sense. It gives them plenty of motivation and something to do after all that had happened. Of course, there are going to be challenges along the way as well, namely in the form of the Legion Platoon. This group is operating in the service of the archbishop of Zentropia, which has a connection to the Infinity Clock as well that’s slowly and lightly discovered over the course of the arc in these episodes. The church and what’s going on there has its own path as there’s a sense that one of the upper level members is working towards his own purpose and there are rewritten histories from the past that indicate that the church may have acted in bad faith for quite a long time.

But what it all really means is that we have a number of different characters out gunning for Fairy Tail. This is kind of where the series succeeds in a way. I enjoy the show but it’s not one that really gets into its characters and makes them into something more. It’s a comedy-adventure series with some light trappings of characters that you sometimes get a little more about. When it shifts to the adventure part, with lots of comedy mixed in, it just runs with it in a big way which proves to be a lot of fun. We get a lot of that throughout the majority of this set as we see them split and travel while having to cope with the various Legion Platoon guys … read the full article at: Fandom Post.com
