An excerpt of the interview with the director of the Fairy Tail movie, taken from the movie pamphlet. The movie was produced by A-1 pictures, the same studio that is doing the second season of the anime. The movie was directed by Fujimori Masaya and the screenplay written by Sogo Masashi. Even though the director of the current season is different (Ishihara Shinji), Sogo Masashi still remains in charge of writing for the series, which might be why we’re getting a lot of Nalu in the new season.
Anyway, on to the interview! (Please link back to this page if you’re using it elsewhere, thank you.)
— Director, what are the scenes you are particularly into in this work?
To begin with, planning of the movie version was inspired by the picture of Natsu and Lucy drawn by Mashima-sensei. Therefore, I compiled the storyboard so that that picture would appear at the final scene. I consistently depicted scenes of “Natsu worrying about Lucy” and “Natsu watching over Lucy” from the beginning of the story to lead to the scene of “Natsu consoling crying Lucy”.
At the end of the story, Natsu makes a difficult choice to go against Lucy’s wish for her sake. Even though Natsu knows that he would also end up carrying a heavy burden because of this, he makes that choice so as to protect Lucy. I think Natsu’s feelings for Lucy might go a little beyond camaraderie and friendship.
Natsu’s feelings for Lucy have yet to be clearly depicted in the original work, but I had Mashima-sensei’s consent to develop it a little in the movie. I tried to express Natsu’s feelings for Lucy, which go a little beyond friendship, through his gaze and movement.
— Mashima-sensei said that he was mindful of “Lucy’s growth” in the movie. I think that Natsu, who supports Lucy, also grew as a person.
So do I. When Lucy grows as a person, Natsu will also grow along with her. I’ll be happy if the audience pays attention to Natsu’s feelings towards Lucy. Even in the opening scenes where Natsu is fooling around, he is paying attention to Lucy and is the first to rush to her when something happens.
