I don't care about this fight anymore. The party had a perfect counter and the show didn't use it.
It's very strange how stubborn this show is about doing anything even the absolute slightest bit significant with Wendy. I can't even put down to the standard anti-female bias in shounen jump style shows, because Fairy Tail bucks that trend. It uses a female as its narrative protagonist and the strongest member of the core team is still a female. That team was split 2-2 initially, and by the end of this arc it could be 4-2 in favor of females. Though Juvia seems to be falling by the wayside and I don't know if Wendy will stick around long term.
So I don't get it. I guess they're still saving her for later, but come on guys. When is later?
