Fairy Tail: About JUVIA and GRAY
Gray is a member of the Fairy Tail guild, who has a great sense of comradeship and is truly devoted towards his guild. He has a rather mellow personality but gets serious when the situation calls for it. Gray also has a weird habit of removing his clothes at inappropriate moments. Later on, Juvia picks up this habit from him.
Juvia was originally a mage of the Phantom Lord Guild. She wasn’t hated by the Fairy Tail members upon joining their guild, but rather maintains a good relationship and she deeply cares for them. Just like she picks up Gray’s habit, Gray also acquires Juvia’s style of making adorable faces at cute things.
Relationship of Gruvia
It was love at first sight for Juvia, but eventually Gray falls hard for her. Her love for Gray has always been genuine, as proved when the Maguilty sense works on her and Gray (a spell that only works on two people with strong bonds).
Though Gray acts mean towards Juvia, he gladly sacrifices his life for her during the Dragon invasion. He also gets very jealous when Lyon declares his love for Juvia. His feelings for her were shown openly during the battle against Invel.
When they were attacked with the Ice Lock Spell, Gray and Juvia gave up their lives for each other because they were trying to protect one another. This proves their deep affection for each other.
Juvia and Gray’s romantic development in the series is what makes them set off as a fan-favorite couple.
