FAIRY TAIL 313 – The King’s Scenario
Drats! I wanted to know more about future Lucy…
I’m a little bit disappointed that the future Lucy collapsed because I’ve been waiting so long for her to reveal everything. If she was feeling so bad, she should’ve rested instead of strolling around town, unless, she was attacked recently. Oh well, I’ve waited so long now, so I guess a bit more won’t hurt. Also, it’s probably just my fangirl mind going crazy, but Natsu’s hand…
Aside from that, there were quite a lot of things going on in today’s chapter. I guess the most important part is that Eclipse is now unlocked and can be opened by, basically, anyone. I don’t think it’s very clever to leave something dangerous like that open. Who knows what people might’ve overheard that conversation, or if there might be any traitors in the palace? Having the gates unlocked seems like a perfect chance for any villain to barge in and destroy everything. I kind of have a feeling that something like that might happen, but at the same time, it’s more likely that things will go wrong in tournament (as future Lucy has said), and the gates will be used for what they have been unlocked for. There are many battles left, so we’ll probably have to wait for a long while until we know anything concerning the horrible future Lucy comes from.
The battles today were quite interesting. I must say, I did not predict any of this. I had assumed that Kagura and Erza would take down Minerva together, that was wrong. I was thinking that Laxus might fight Jura before anyone else but that was also wrong, however, I had one correct guess – Gajeel is up against Rogue! For now, the main battle is Erza and Kagura. It’s quite frustrating to see Erza in such an emotional battle. I think she will win, but this will be hard on her feelings. Kagura has already managed to surprise Erza by saying that she shouldn’t act like Millianna’s friend. I don’t think of Erza as Millianna’s enemy, but I can definitely see where Kagura is coming from. Erza likes the man who unintentionally murdered a friend of Millianna, and while that wasn’t really him, the hate in Millianna’s heart makes sense. I guess this battle will be more of a mental challenge for Erza, so it’ll be quite interesting to see where this goes.
As for Gajeel and Rogue, their battle is not surprising at all. I am absolutely sure that Gajeel is capable of taking down his opponent. Especially if it’s someone who has been defeated by Natsu already. Of course, there are many things we don’t know about Rogue. He does seem somewhat different – everyone in Sabertooth has changed since Sting attacked their master. So I don’t think Gajeel will have it easy. But when it comes to Laxus, I doubt that battle will be much of a difficulty for the second generation’s Dragon Slayer. If he could take down an entire guild on his own, a God Slayer shouldn’t be too hard. It’s quite interesting to see two different types of magic of the same element though. Oh well, now that everyone in the FAIRY TAIL team have engaged in battles, I expect the upcoming chapters to be intense and exhilarating!
