Despite the success in preventing Tartarus from nullifying all magic power on Ishgar, the cost of reaching such a point was felt by many, in particular, the Dragon Slayers and Gray. The truth behind the remnants of the Dragons and their attempts to prevent a repeat of history and the annihilation of their creation birthed from their mistakes unveiled the necessity of working together to defend against the inevitable future threat Acnologia poses to all creation. And within the shadows of that engulfing darkness, Zeref waits for the one capable of ENDing his suffering and setting him free from the prison of immortality. The flame demon known as E.N.D, otherwise fully known as Etherias Natsu Dragneel.
Interesting, so Mard Geer does have some bite to back his bark, I was worried for a moment there that him being too overconfident in his abilities would let him get complacent during his battle with the Dragon Slayers and ultimately have his perception of humans erupt into flames. Still that may happen, but it looks like Natsu and Co. will need to come up with some drastic strategy to even begin to get Mard Geer serious. I wonder if Mard Geer will even be defeated this arc or whether it will conclude with the Face plan failing and Mard Geer retreating with E.N.D.
Reduced to nothingness and numbed of sensation, the world before one turns to darkness, yet within that formless stream of existence and space, the magic of one’s soul manifest into a light connecting their being to the endless depths of the world. Broken down and stripped of her five senses, Erza manifest her spirit into a light capable of residing within the flow of the world, ultimately awakening a sensation beyond form.
And so the wings of hope cast aside the clouds of despair and reveal the rays of light awaiting beyond such impending doom. Appearing before his son and resolving to open a path for his son to prevent the end of the world from culminating into destruction, he engages the Black Dragon, Acnologia.
You know if Mard Geer wasn’t so arrogant and oblivious to dangers Fairy Tail pose to his plan, I would have called him out as a fool for expressly revealing his plan to Erza and Co., but seeing as how it has already been shown that Mard Geer grossly underestimates humans, specifically Fairy Tail, and believes with absolute certainty that they won’t be able to stop him, it follows with his character that he has no problem revealing his plan to his enemies. But who would have thought, Keith, the necromancer, was able to revive Crawford. I guess Crawford will just have to die again =/.
Frozen by detachment and confused by superiority, the heart of a girl once so full of warmth is smothered by the narrow-mindedness of strength and the fear of weakness. Engraved within her being by the terror of her father and the darkness of his teachings, she distanced herself from her feelings and began to ignore the cries of her heart, cries that craved to be embraced. Yet through her denial of herself and the acknowledgement of who she is, the heart of her emotion began to beat again and with the realisation of a place to belong, tears once dried up and frozen begin to rejuvenate the heart.
Well dam, that sure exploded in Fairy Tail’s face. Mard Geer is still kicking, Franmalth is still alive thanks to some unknown mushroom transformation, the Kyuukimon are still powerful and Face is anything but destroyed due to their being more than one Face – the Magic Council were such trolls. Looks like the answer to the threat FACING humanity lies in the form of Lumen Histoire, the “secret” locked away underneath Fairy Tail. At least now we know why Mard Geer was so confident the Face plan would be able to progress despite the initial Face going down. I wonder where Mard Geer is getting all this information from O.o.
How impressive it is that Lucy, while having the Celestial Spirit King summoned, was able to cast her most powerful magic to take out Jackal. Her actions these past few chapters has really showcased how reliable and resilient she can be, despite all the challenges she encountered, Lucy, with the aid of her beloved spirits, was able to scale those walls and illuminate the darkness with radiating light. The Celestial Spirit King’s Galaxia Blade directed the radiance of the stars onto the darkness imprisoning Fairy Tail, ultimately eroding it away and effectively saving Fairy Tail. With Alegria dispelled, it is time for the rest Fairy Tail to carry on what Wendy, Mira and Lucy gave their all to stop, that is Tartartus.
