FAIRY TAIL 288 – Wendy VS. Chelia
Don’t lose that wig!
The fight is on!
I somehow knew that Chelia would have Sky Magic. She is so similar to Wendy, so I guess I assumed their magic would be related too. But I don’t understand why Lyon thinks this is something of Gray’s interest…
God slaying magic, eh? I wonder how Chelia’s powers are related to Zeref and how this will affect Wendy. She is already quite beaten up, she can barely stand. While I’ve seen Wendy heal others, I can’t recall seeing her heal herself. I am rooting for Wendy but I have a hunch she might lose this battle. Lamia Scale hasn’t performed as well as FAIRY TAIL for a while so I wouldn’t be too surprised if Chelia won this battle. But having Mystogan in the audience suspecting some sort of danger that could harm Wendy, who knows? – This battle might be interrupted!
Doranbolt appeared on a lot of pages in this chapter. It’s nice to see how much he cares for Wendy even though it’s been so long since the incident on Tenrou Island. While they did team up during the S-class arc, I didn’t expect him to have any special feelings for this guild, he was a council member on duty after all. But I’m glad he is there after all these years. I love how this series brings back old characters – every character is important!
As for the battle itself, I don’t have much to say about it because it was quite uneventful. It was repetitive at the beginning, but changed to the better near the end. A lot of focus was put into the fact that these are two very cute and adorable characters. I think that could’ve been skipped because we already knew this from last week. But other than that, the second half of the fight was really interesting.
I like that Wendy had a new ability, even though it didn’t help much. But as I said earlier in this post, I expect Wendy to lose. I doubt she has any more tricks hidden at this point. She wasn’t given enough time to practice and on top of that, she was recently attacked. So, no matter how much I love Wendy, unfortunately I don’t think she can win this one.
But I expect a good fight next week, or perhaps some more in-depth information about Chelia’s magic and how it’s connected to Zeref. Something even better would be some information about “Eclipse” which seems to be completely forgotten at this point, but it’s not something I expect to see next week. So let’s look forward to some more Wendy (and Chelia).
Note: Next week, my post might be delayed because I’ll be visiting a friend.
