I just started binge watching Fairy Tail, and I’m wondering why so many people hate Lucy Heartfilia?
One common complaint I see from people is that Lucy is weak, annoying, and is only around for fanservice (can’t we say that for the entire cast?). But I think people might be misjudging her character.
Yeah, Lucy doesn’t have kick ass magic and will never win a fist fight, but I think her real power is being a type of calming presence for the guild. Natsu, Erza, and Gray can go around destroying towns and winning battles, but I think Lucy kind of grounds them in a way and reminds them that not every one is a Rank S warrior or whatever.
Also, I think her magic skills are stronger than people give her credit for. At first, Lucy can only summon familiars as friends, but now she can use them in combat. Also, she seems to become a pretty decent strategist over time, knowing which familiar to call out and directing battles. She also knows a lot about spells, which is valuable to the team.
But still, I want to know why people don’t like her. Is it really because she’s not on the combat level as Erza or is there something I’m missing?
And sorry for all the questions lately, I’m pretty new to anime!
