Fairy tail natsu and lucy moments

Fairy Tail"s most popular ship is Natsu và Lucy, or "NaLu." Where did the manga/anime leave the potential couple in the end?


After a successful 11-year run, including a popular anime adaptation, Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail manga ended in 2017.

Part of the series' charm was the large roster of vivid characters, and how distinct each wizard was. Fairy Tail, which primarily followed the lives of Lucy, Natsu, Erza & Gray (with Wendy and Gajeel added later), was great at organically developing their relationships. Unlike Naruto (with the exception of Shikamaru and Temari), the lãng mạn relationships, in particular, felt real and earned. Lucy & Natsu, the two main protagonists, are Fairy Tail's main ship (known to Fairy Tale fans as "NaLu"), but Mashima has always kept the jury out on their true relationship. Although the original manga and anime series have ended, fans are still hoping for a NaLu confirmation in future Fairy Tail projects. For now, here's a breakdown of NaLu's Fairy Tale history, và where the two end up by the story's conclusion.

Proof in Fairy Tail That Natsu và Lucy Care for Each Other


Lucy và Natsu mô tả many charged moments, providing plenty of evidence that the two care for each other romantically. Natsu was the one who invited Lucy to lớn join the Fairy Tail Guild, và from that scene forward, they had an immediate connection. You could honestly write an entire book about all of these instances of thắm thiết tension, but we'll stick khổng lồ some of the more significant ones.

In the Phantom Lord arc, Lucy called out for Natsu when she was falling from the Phantom Tower, knowing, somehow, that Natsu would save her. That points lớn a special, almost telepathic, bond between the duo. In a filler episode, Natsu and Lucy went lớn each other's house to lớn wait for the other and, despite being surrounded by friends they could hang out with, felt a pang of loneliness without the other there. And during the Eclipse arc, the anime's 15th Opening showed a notable NaLu moment in which Natsu went berserk after Future Lucy was killed, specifically promising to lớn protect Lucy's future, not all of Fairy Tail's.

There are also the more general, recurring hints, beginning with the most obvious: Natsu has seen Lucy naked several times and hasn't exactly shied away. Scenes in which Natsu và Lucy save each other often over with them hugging in ways that the camera romantically frames, while filler episodes increase the flirty moments between the two, usually focusing on the two almost kissing or Lucy blushing at Natsu's antics.

At the over of the day, Natsu and Lucy are a good pair because of their long history & compatible personalities. So, why didn't they declare their feelings khổng lồ one another? and where did the (possible) lovebirds over up?

Before we answer, we first have to lớn address the (elephant) wizard in the room: Lisanna Strauss. There's a large group of "NaLi" shippers, and if we look back at the first few episodes, we can't exactly blame them. Natsu và Lisanna go way back as childhood friends, và the innocence in their burgeoning relationship was adorable -- Lisanna even outright proposed to lớn Natsu.

However, their time together was tragically cut short with Lisanna's "death"; although she was eventually brought back khổng lồ start a possible love triangle, things just weren't the same. Lisanna was largely ignored by Mashima, và her scenes mostly revolved around fighting in animal lingerie rather than moments with Natsu. Mashima's comments at an anime convention in France in 2019 can be seen as the final hole to lớn sink the ship: He admitted that, "personally, Lisanna is a nice girl, và it would be a shame lớn see her with a guy lượt thích Natsu. that the Natsu and Lucy ship is more suitable."

Mashima added, "At that time, what fans thought about lãng mạn relationships became very important. I thought, whatever I do, they are going to hit me. Because of this, I thought khổng lồ myself that the simplest thing would be for Natsu to lớn remain as is so that nothing concrete happens."

Judging by how fiercely fan wars can rage, we can't blame Mashima for leaving things open. But he did also say he liked NaLu better, so he may be telling readers that's his version of what's canon.

At the end of the anime, Lucy confesses how much Natsu & Fairy Tail have influenced her, & lobbed the ball up for Natsu to confess his love... Which he drops. But the two nevertheless band together for the 100 Years Quest spinoff, which has released nine volumes so far (with an anime adaptation announced), so Lucy and Natsu still have the opportunity lớn revisit their relationship status.

Fans might be upset with "Trollshima" for not confirming NaLu, but Fairy Tale's creator has given us plenty of lãng mạn subtext lớn work with. He's even gone on record admitting he likes NaLu, so we can presume the two have romantic feelings for each other -- neven if there's no canon confession. Và for disappointed NaLi shippers, Lisanna can still be considered lớn be Natsu's first love, while the xuất hiện (and questionable) ending regarding his current romantic life leaves room for any shipper's fantasies.
