Fairy Tail chapter 229 is the 17th bathing scene in the Fairy Tail manga.


Juvia Lockser is shown bathing Underwater in an Unspecified Freestanding Bathtub with only one of her legs sticking out on the chapter cover. Along with the bathwater, many flowers and plants are in the bathtub as well covering Juvia's explicit areas. Nothing bathing related happens in the actual chapters story.


Appearing Tropes


  • Hiro Mashima - Artist


This chapter was first released on April 6th, 2011 in Weekly Shonen Magazine. It was put in volume 27 released in Japan on June 17th, 2011. It's English translation was released in the 27th volume on June 25th, 2013.

Anime Differences

This specific bathing scene did not get adapted in the anime in any form and is exclusive to the manga.


  • This chapter is part of the Tenrou Island arc also known as the S-Class Exam arc.
  • This is the only time a female character is shown bathing on a chapter cover in the main Fairy Tail manga. The 13th chapter of the spin-off Fairy Girls is the only other time in the franchise.
  • It is unknown if the Freestanding Bathtub that Juvia is bathing in is a Clawfoot Bathtub, Flat Bathtub or Pedestal Bathtub. At the very least Juvia is the 1st or 2nd character in the Fairy Tail franchise to bathe in any of those three categories of bathtub if it were confirmed. Ultear Milkovich is for sure the 1st in one of the categories as well since the bathtub she bathed in back in chapter 102 was unspecified as well.
  • It is mentioned back in the Fairy Hills omake that the dorm room's private bathrooms only have Showers which means that Juvia went out of her way to get a bathtub so she can take Baths in private since she's too shy to continue using the dorms Public Bath to bathe. The tub being a freestanding supports this theory since they are more mobile and not attached to the ground and the fact that there is a Gray Fullbuster doll decorating the room proves she lives in this location. The Bath Stool also shows that she converted her shower into an Ofuro. The amount of effort Juvia went to for this may tell us that Juvia prefers baths over showers.
  • This bath scene is implied to take place after Omake 15 because of the bathtub but before chapter 201 because of Juvia's hair style.
