1. Mashima is collaborating with the fillers is because he didn’t want to do the same as Naruto, One Piece and Bleach do with their filler arcs. He didn’t want the animators adding stuff that were of no relevance to the manga at all and that could even ruin the story. I also read that he’s strenghtening the relationships between the main pairings in the anime, because of what is about to come in the upcoming chapters, so that it wouldn’t feel too forceful when it came to it.
2. The anime can be considered canon, since Mashima said he wrote the fillers himself.
3. The only fillers that Hiro didn’t write were the NaLi ones. The director had told Mashima to bring Lisanna back, because he liked her character a lot, so Mashima did so, that’s also why Lisanna ain’t really playing an important role in the manga, Mashima wasn’t planning to bring her back in the first place. But then Mashima got mad at the anime director for adding stuff that didn’t exist in the manga ( NaLi ). So that’s why he told the director to make the main pairings more obvious in the anime: NaLu, GaLe, Gruvia, Elfgreen, Jelza, etc.
Hahaha! When I’m giving the bill of our American customers, his companion is doing random Asian pose (coz I’m in Chinese get-up for the Chinese new year event of our lounge). Then the guy is asking if I’m Singaporean (Chinese race is one of the major population here, and I’m kinda mistaken as local Singaporean-Chinese citizen sometimes). I said no then he asked where I came from which I answered ‘from Philippines’. The other one said ‘hay nako naman’ to show he knows some of my language. I find it amusing when someone tries to make a parody out of me. Then we had a tiny chit-chat. But sometimes I feel insecure of my job because I’m dealing with people way too mature than me, working in 16 years of age feels you’re still too young to work. I’m not really required to work, it’s just I wanna earn my own money for myself. I don’t wanna depend much on my parents when it comes to things you just want and don’t really need. But I feel normal when dealing with youngsters in the lounge. They might be older a year or so than me, but I know we’re on the same line where we are not yet independent enough. This is just a random post about my boring life. I’m being semi-active again on blogging because Facebook atmosphere pisses me off. I’m not happy with it so welcome back to Tumblr Lara. :D
