Wow, when was the last time we saw someone attacking Erza likes this? It sure was refreshing to see her at a disadvantage, especially after her triumphant victory during the Pandemonium event. But at the same time, I felt a bit sad because I want her to win. I don’t think I’ve ever had a problem with Erza winning too much. I like FAIRY TAIL, and seeing that guild win makes me happy. What really bothers me is that there are some guild members who always seem to be weak even though they aren’t. Anyway, this could be FAIRY TAIL’s first loss in this round, but for some reason, I find it hard to believe that Erza would lose despite being tossed around through the entire chapter.
Much like the Dragon Slayer battle, I assume Erza will rise again, stronger than ever. Whenever Erza is at a disadvantage, it’s usually related to something emotional within her. I know she is capable of taking down her current opponent. Perhaps the two of them will talk this through, and by doing that, Kagura might be discouraged and caught off guard? Anything goes really. But right now, it’s probably hard to calm down the anger in Kagura’s heart. Who would’ve thought that she’d be Simon’s sister? That sure surprised me in a good way. While it isn’t the most impressive and shocking revelation, it sure was a good plot twist.
Aside from that revelation, we also know that there is something suspicious about the things future Lucy has said. It’s quite annoying that we can’t know anything yet, but I’m a patient person so I will wait. But I do wonder if Jellal thinks there is something wrong because of Zeref… He did feel Zeref’s presence around future Lucy, something I forgot to mention last week, so perhaps that’s what’s bothering him? Anyway, this chapter sure was intense and filled with action, but because of that, there isn’t too much to write about it. I just hope that Erza is safe and sound. That cliffhanger near the end was truly nerve-racking. Any guesses on what unfortunate person that was? While it’s easy to think that it was Erza, a part of me believes that it could be Millianna. I know she is trapped but Minerva is an evil person; she might’ve released the girl to spice things up. I guess we’ll find out next week!
