Segment Before & After Opening Credits

Fairy Tail episode 97 is the 10th bathing scene in the Fairy Tail anime series.


Lucy Heartfilia is at her house at night Shampooing her hair in the bathroom while humming and then turns on the shower. While Lucy is having a Shower she says out loud that it is great to be relaxing at her own house again, where she hears Cana Alberona's voice say that she has a great place here which Lucy agrees and then suddenly gets freaked out and sees that Cana is bathing in her Undermount Bathtub naked.

After the opening credits, the scene resumes to Lucy looking surprised at Cana having a Bath in Lucy's tub Leg Stretching and complaining that Lucy doesn't have any booze in her house. After a brief flashback Lucy has giving a monologue about who Cana Alberona is showing previous scenes in the series that involve her, the scene now shows that they are both in the bathtub together both Leg Curling to fit into it. Lucy and Cana then start conversing and Cana brings up that she might be leaving the guild and stands up in front of Lucy.

Manga Differences

The manga version of this scene.
Main article: Fairy Tail/Chapter 201

This bath scene adapted from the 201st chapter of the manga. The changes made for the anime version aside from the altered design of Lucy's bathroom are:

  • This scene appears to take place in the morning in the manga but takes place at night in the anime.
  • The shot of Lucy showering is toned down in the anime focusing on her back view rather than her front view like in the manga.
  • In the manga version Lucy is already showing while in the anime she was first shampooing her hair and then turns the shower on to rinse it.
  • The anime doesn't show Lucy covering her breasts and crotch when she discovers Cana is in her bathtub.
  • In the anime, Lucy is sitting down and leaning over her bathtub when Cana is stretching her leg but in the manga she was standing up in front of the shower and covering her breasts while Cana's head is blocking the view of the rest of Lucy's body. Water is also seen dripping off of Cana's foot in the manga version.
  • The shot of Cana standing up in the bath is focused on the front of her body in the manga while the anime only shows her from the backside getting up.


  • This is the first time in the anime where Lucy is seen taking a Shower.
  • This is the first time in the anime where a female character who isn't Lucy is seen bathing in her bathtub.
  • This is the only bathing scene to start at the beginning of the episode before the opening credits and still continue afterwards.
  • Lucy's bathtub is depicted a lot smaller in this scene than in any other bathing scene.
  • It's unknown if Cana was already in the tub when Lucy entered the Ofuro and Lucy was just oblivious when she started showering or if Cana snuck into Lucy's tub after Lucy started showering.
