And ugh, freaking Cana. You know this is going to be a frustrating chapter. Of course Lucy's completely crackbrained theory/idea turned out to be correct and Cana arrived at the gravestone. Just get her annoying storyline over with, please I beg you!!!!

I can guess what his magic is its Gravaity

Gravaity always has that effect in Manga and shows and its almost always one of the most strongest powers

We get to see his tattoo better on that double page.

He's also a heck of a lot older, and uglier than I pictured him to be.

That is one really thick braid he has on the back of his head as well.

I didn't get that impressed with Bluenot, to be honest. He reminds me too much of Zero and, yes, it seems like his powers is gravity and we now know that he was the one behind the sinking ship, as some where in doubt.

Cana just found the grave, and it's glowing... Boring, it's not fun anymore thinking of that it's not even the last quest and by the fact that no one is interested at it for the moment.

Also, Lucy's new clothes are going to get ripped apart.

It will be hilarious when Cana is all like "yay, I found the grave first, I won" and then she realizes there are huge explosions going off all around here all over the island, and then she is all terrified.

Too bad an explosion can't hit her location and lock her in that passage.

Cana is a good mage her cards have a large ammont of effects that are useful and she is smart and I like her but she needs to get something through her head

the exam is over it ended the second Grimorie Heart showed up

Lucy changing clothes is total mind blow. And I agree with Los. Get her annoying storyline over with. I don't give a damn in it.

I didn't expect Bluenote's face to be like that. I imagined a bit more younger.

kkck
April 17, 2011, 12:30 AM
Bluenote's tattoo looks an aweful lot like fairy tail's. Perhaps a member of raven tail? I guess he quite literally went out when the 4th grimmoire heart member fell. Wonder who he is using his magic against though... I want him to fight gildarts though, I doubt any of the kids has a chance except for luxus (assuming he gets there).

Can't wait for the chapter. I hope they reveal what Cana wants in this chapter. Hopefully Natsu doesn't take down Bluenote >.<

April 17, 2011, 01:40 AM
I saw that attack and i was like "Gra-vi-ton rai-ful!" (quote from SRW series >.>).

Blue note rocks, he looks like a good villain to me.

Natsu's face is priceless.

As always, more p**n from Lucy.

Cana must die! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTw2YvutJRA
By the way, i was thinking that maybe whoever finds that grave, might learn Fairy Law. Maybe Laxus learned in the same way.

I can tell you didn't think this one out too thoroughly. You are supposing that all S-class mages who obviously pass are given the same task of finding the grave? What about those S-class we have seen who didn't know Fairy Law? I'm not picking on you, just that the idea has a few huge holes in it.

Gosh Mashima teasing us all again.

So mean.

Well I think crap is gonna go way bad for FT now. The only saving grace is if someone of Bluenots level shows up. I just hope someone dies.

saya1987
April 17, 2011, 02:41 AM
no, i dont think they are going to reveal about cana in this chapter because it seems that the glowing tomb is on the last page. Hopefully, hiro will tell us everything related to cana or the tomb in the next chapter and not drag it over so many chapters.

Sigh, if this is so, hiro wasted two pages of manga. The first one was cana staring at smth in one of the previous chapters. Now, another page is wasted at her staring at a glowing tomb.

bluenote indeed looks insanely strong.

it's a bit off topic, but one thing just came to my mind.. why did GH have to follow FT to their secret island? after all hades is the former leader of FT, he should know where to find the island! they could have go there and take zeref with no resistance at all? i wonder if this is going to be explained or if it remains as a plothole

ghostexiled
April 17, 2011, 03:11 AM
^I don't see any plothole at all.

It could be just a matter of coincidence that GH showed up at the island shortly after FT.

GH has been out doing missions required to be done in order to bring Zeref back, so there is your reason GH didn't just simply go to the island beforehand.

If you simply go back to when Makrov took on the ship, Hades and crew seemed a bit shocked at the fact that Makrov was there.

Back on topic, looks like Bluenote is going to be a beast that has the ability to crush FT with little effort.

I still think Cana wanted to see the grave for a reason other than the exam.

Actually i did. Mest claimed that each year tasks change. So maybe when Erza was doing the exam, task was different?

It's like Kinder Surprise :D Each year, different surprise :D


Maybe Fairy Law is written on back of tombstone or something. And yeah, that would kinda redeem Cana in some way, if she was looking for that...

Ero-Sanji
April 17, 2011, 03:39 AM

It's called first impression, when Zero got introduced he had a similar pose and he also crushed everything around him until Natsu got his power up. That's why such an entrance doesn't impress me.



I still think Cana wanted to see the grave for a reason other than the exam.

I don't really think so, I mean why else participate four(?) times if it's not occurring on this special island? I'm guessing the only thing she wants is status and perhaps Bluenote is the one she wants to meet.

How is this any different than what I am stating about the grave? :p

@Erosanji - well... I have stated this before...

The grave could be what she is after even though the exam happens in different locations.

The island may only be accessible to S-ranks and higher. So no matter where she becomes a S-class mage, she would be able to visit the grave one way or another.

Of course this is all my theory. :)

ca12nag3
April 17, 2011, 04:13 AM
Possible she is related to the first FT guildmaster? Just a longshot. Cana is so obsessed with this i can hardly believe the grave finding is a coincidence.
I dont see anyone shes close to except for Macao perhaps but he doesnt need her to be S-Class.
Its more like she wants to show her *lineage* that shes a worthy successor to the bloodline? (More like that)

LoS
April 17, 2011, 04:38 AM
The fact is, her prattling around and continually bitching and moping about going on and on about becoming an S-class mage in order to meet "that person" is not redeemable by merely seeing a grave.

For Mashima to make this in any sense remotely interesting and make up for all the horrible pages of Cana the past 30 chapters it is going to have to be something monumental, as in will flat out alter the entire scope of the Fairy Tail verse storyline. And I seriously doubt it will be anything so special, so I am afraid it will turn out to be a colossal let down.

The Fairy Law talk is pretty rubbish. The girl doesn't even have the strength to invoke the spell, but of course Mashima would pull that power out of her ass and make her capable of doing just that.

I see, now that I think about it, the grave has just begun to glow, which it didn't do when Makarov sat at it. It's either reacting to Cana as a contestant or as the "chosen one". There could also be the possibility that Mavis is turning in his grave since the island is getting more and more destroyed and threatened.

sarutobi_sensei
April 17, 2011, 09:04 AM
Or maybe he'll appear to her and say: You stupid prick, you think not helping your comrades is the right thing to do? You're not worthy to be a FT mage.

And then she collapses.

Some major Cana-backslashing going on...
and - to a large extent the character deserves it -_
But frankly - Are we all talking of the same fairy tail where worst enemies redeem their ass and even get in FT?!
Cana is a member of that guild! I am almost sure her redeem-your-ass-up storyline has already been written somewhere in Hiro's desk/mind!...

Bluenote blah - If you people are expecting some kind of huge change...
Then don't waste your time! I am among those who thought Natsu won't hit the deathreaper guy in the lullaby arc - that he won't be able to touch Jellal - That Brain will rape his brains out!....
Well this is FT!!! Unless you are reading some other manga called GH...
I highly doubt Bluenote will take this one - If not Natsu - then Laxus/Gild/Erza might continue the fight....

Bluenote looks like an real nemesis, Magneto kind of bad guy. I sense Guildartz jumping back in a few chapters.
And Wow didn't expect Mashima to shove Lucy's boobs up close to us like that but I'm certainly not complaining, XD.

saya1987
April 17, 2011, 11:10 PM
According to a japanese spoiler report, blue note indeed uses gravity. Secondly, it was also mentioned that he has a good physique. Blue note used gravity to crush/squash Natsu's team.

Both Wendy and Lucy had a change of clothes. Marakov is still lying down.

The report wasn't very informative as you can see. It's pretty much stating the obvious but just to clear the air, reptile guy (blue note) uses gravity!

Nice spoilers, Really looking forward to the chapter now. I didn't think Bluenote would be introduced this week, thought he'd only come out when all the 7 Kin fall or close to that. Guess he got bored...

Cana's finally reached Mavis' grave...I still can't figure out who is the person she wants to impress by becoming a S-Class mage but we'll see.

A bit disappointed that this chapter didn't carry on with the Urtear and Gray scenes.

Jorge D. Dragon
April 18, 2011, 05:53 AM
Spoilers are really promising. Especially Bluenote attacking Natsu's group. Bluenote is shown as one of the strongest mages in the manga for now, so I REALLY hope that he won't be taken down by some shitty combo by Lucy with Levy or even Natsu and Gajeel.
Also I think we'll get a bit more than some porn from Lucy, some dumb look from Cana observing Mavis's grave and badass entering from Bluenote in this chapter.;)

April 18, 2011, 11:38 AM
^well, I guess I will take your word over makarov's for that. I don't think strength in the only consideration when deciding who has the right to take the s-class exam. Knowledge, character and personality traits are bound to be important. Kana has a very versatile magic to say the least and her info card does describe her as a veteran and skilled mage. She is not too dumb either so even if she is not among the strongest members she is most likely still a very decent mage. Besides, in the exams there are other people to compete against, would it be that bad for her to have lost the chance to be an s-class mage to mira, erza, luxus or mistgun? We also have to consider erza and mira were probably not as strong as they are now when they took the exam. Mira became an s-class mage about 4 or 5 years ago (she was already an s-class mage when lisana disappeared 3 years ago) so it would be unlikely for her to be as strong then as she is now. Same thing could be said for erza at the very least. Besides, we have already seen the gang on at least one factual s-class mission and their skills were not too shabby for it considering how long ago it was, even lucy did ok. I don't think Cana being a candidate for s-class mage is that far out there...

Agree with everything you said !

But have some doubts about Mira strength.
I think that Mira might probably be weaker than when she she became an S-class mage!

Erza of course is a lot stronger now !!!

kkck
April 18, 2011, 02:11 PM
I have my doubts about that. Mira actually managed to hand fried his own ass on a silver plate in a fight and fought on par with azuma even though she had a limited amount of magic. He also kicked her brother's ass. She really does not seem weaker than the current erza at all for the most part. I would even find it weird that she had this level 3 years ago (being 1 or 2 years younger than current natsu or grey both of whom are very talented). That said, mira could actually use limited forms of transformation magic so perhaps she managed to somehow train to at least maintain or perhaps raise her level of magic.

Why is the grave shinning? Is it reacting to Bluenote? Could he be his descendant or something?

Damn, can't wait for the next chapter.

So, it's going to be Lily, Levy and Lissana vs Rustyrose? Lol LLL vs RR xD

Erza vs Asuma, cool! Didn't predict it.

Now, I keep wondering if Urtear is actually telling the truth or not. I'm going to go with no, she's a lying manipulative bitch like we've seen already, but still... there's something in there.

I also wonder if Mavis is going to appear in spirit form or something.

But this is way to overkilling to Fairy Tail ! Just hope that Laxus and Gildartz come to save the day ! Because without them , they don't stand a chance !

Next chapter we will finally see why Cana did what she did ! But i think that independently what were the reasons, i might never forgive her for what she did !

And i can't imagine seeing no one beating Bluenote beyond Gildartz! I fight between those 2 is destined to be epic! :zomg

To conclude : Awesome Chapter

What a cool chapter. Gravity as most of us expected Bluenote's power to be. I actually preferred his design when his face was hidden and thought he'd have some sort of bear at least like Ivan or something.

The fanservice was awesome as always :hurr
Azuma vs Erza fight has fantastic potential in my opinion, plus Erza hasn't used up that much magical power compared to the rest of FT mages.

Blunote for Cana's dad? otherwise what do they both want with Mavis' grave and why is it glowing?

April 18, 2011, 05:28 PM
@Jorped Thats a given, no reason to bring it up :P, Erza is hotter anyway but that's a different discussion (lolmitsurukirijobias).

Depending on who her father is...they just made cana magically important...i'd just thought of her of meh fanservice who's guaranteed to be in a bikini if erza and lucy aren't. What's happening to fairy tail.....

I think this song and it's title sum it all up

Erza and Lucy fanservice.... Thank you Mashima-san!!!

Ultear... I still don't get it. Is she just acting or telling the truth? I hope we get the full info about it next chapter.

So Bluenote is Cana's father? And unlike the others, I like Bluenote's design. And come on, time for Gildarts to join the fray and I hope Laxus as well. They don't stand a chance without them.

There's some secret in Mavis' grave and I have something in my mind... Maybe he'll come out in spirit form to aid them or give his strength to Makarov(This one is just a random guess).

Aikidoka
April 18, 2011, 05:43 PM
Bluenote is awesome, gravity's one of my favorite powers and I'm glad Mashima gave it to one of the (seemingly) strongest mages in the FTverse. I don't really mind that he's ugly, though Mashima seems to be mostly following the Shounen trend of ugly=weak (powers/design/character), and I'm hoping he doesn't do the same with Bluenote. As much as I dislike saying it, Natsu seems like the only contender to fight Bluenote now, with Erza preoccupied.

That's another thing. Erza vs. Azuma, so obvious now in retrospect...the badasses of both guilds fighting against each other. I'm confident this'll be a good fight.

Also looking forward to what else Ultear has to say...I'm wondering if the MS translation has faltered again this week, because the context seems to imply Gray should be saying "You're using" rather than "you used"...unless this means Ultear was the one that released Deliora? Either it's a translation mistake or a poorly-introduced plot twist/shocker. If it turns out Ultear was the indirect cause of her mother's death, then I'd expect Mashima to have put more focus on it.

Bluenote is stupid. Thinking he actually can't lose is gonna be his downfall. Natsu always defeat stronger opponents and Bluenote will fall like the others.

Erza vs Asuma, Erza will defeat him easily. The only reason a weakling like Asuma beated Mira was because she was out of magic power.

As for that glass dude, he is gonna lose somehow.

As for Ultear, she is far too weak to be considered a threat. On Garuna Island, Natsu was easily keeping up with her and she was only using half of her powers. Now if Natsu would have fought her seriously, she wouldn't have stood a chance, but the author just had to let her live so she could meet Grey. Don't understand how she can be the leader of those 7 kins when she is so weak. Zancrow was a bigger threat.

Bluenote is awesome, gravity's one of my favorite powers and I'm glad Mashima gave it to one of the (seemingly) strongest mages in the FTverse. I don't really mind that he's ugly, though Mashima seems to be mostly following the Shounen trend of ugly=weak (powers/design/character), and I'm hoping he doesn't do the same with Bluenote. As much as I dislike saying it, Natsu seems like the only contender to fight Bluenote now, with Erza preoccupied.

If that happens, we will not see Natsu moving for a long time :crying

Bluenote is on higher league than Natsu! Bluenote is an opponent to Gildartz !

I can't see any other way of Natsu and the others surviving that don't include the arrived of Gildartz or Laxus ! Or maybe something related with glowing will make Bluenote leave !

Why are you saying that Bluenote is Cana's dad? :oh

And what meant Bluenote by saying this

http://i51.tinypic.com/t66xat.png

Is supposed for Natsu to be able to fly ? or did i get everything wrong ?

Ive always held it possible that the dragon abilities they have arnt even half of their true potential. And its possible Bluenote as a superior class mage knows way more about their power.

(im also holding it possible Zeref is the black dragonslayer thus they know about his max abilities etc etc).

So flying and possible dragontransformations with wings and the whole package are an option.

As for Cana well i was on the right track the reason is the grave and its of great importance. (Its indeed possible Bluenote is her dad ^^ luckily she looks like her mom then :D). Anyways become S-Class + pleasing daddy for presenting him with the secrets of the grave. Guess thats partialy what its about.

So in essence you could say she has the reverse relation with her dad as for Lucy.

-Lucy wants to prove she can be on her own and live her life the way she wants it even tho her dad doesnt give a crap about her.
-Im asuming Canas dad doesnt give a crap about her either but shes looking for his love/attention/aproval and will do anything to get that (become S-Class and get the grave secret). And i supose shes out there doing that on her own without her dad knowing btw. Im thinking she might have known/overheard her dad on what he wants and decided to bring him that gift ^^.

Based on your post it seems that all Grimoire Heart is nothing more than a bunch of weaklings :toc

I can't believe that people really think that Bluenote will be defeated by Natsu ? :o
For that to happen, Natsu would have to have a mysterious huge power up ! I can see him managed to dodge some attacks but if somehow the battle is not interrupted i can't see any of these guys survive! If Makarov was in good conditions the situation would be different !

Natsu was going all out when he fought her on the island she was using 1 3rd of her power not even half she is stronger then him and he has not really grown any stronger

Azuma was even with Mira but Mira was not any weaker then normal she just could not stay in that form too long

Bluenote never said he did not think he could lose he just pinned Natsu down and asked were the grave was

Now, I keep wondering if Urtear is actually telling the truth or not. I'm going to go with no, she's a lying manipulative bitch like we've seen already, but still... there's something in there.

One thing I wondered a while back was if Ur could be a former member of Zeref's cult. Her splitting up with Ultear's father when Ultear was young, and Ultear's father staying with the cult and Ultear opting to stay with him would explain a fair bit about why Ultear's been evil since she was a child, and why Ur was scanty enough with the details that people thought Ultear was dead.

The person Cana wants to meet turning out to be her father is not particularly surprising, but it's nice to have it confirmed. Now we just need to learn why she's so determined that it's this exam or bust, to the point that she's abandoned her guild mates. I mean Natsu wants to meet his father as well, and thinks being S-Class would enable him to do that, but he doesn't take it to irrational extremes.

Glad i didn't get it wrong :Haha

Bluenote is someone very powerful and has probably full knowledge about the Dragons and the DragonSlayers !

But if Mashiro is giving to us this info now it probably means that we will see probably Natsu flying soon !

Since i started reading Fairy Tail i was never this hyped about it ! This chapter was so Epic!! I can't wait for the next chapter :yay

How come you know Bluenote is thinking he can't lose to anyone? And the reason Natsu defeated opponents like Jellal and Zero was because of a WTF power up and he's one of the main characters.

Mira was out of magic power? She wasn't out of magic power before she fought Azuma. And she lost coz she was out of time and protected Lisanna.

And Ultear is far too weak? What are you saying? She wasn't even using half of her strength when she fought against Natsu. All she did was use one orb. And they already had a little fight and it seems that Natsu couldn't keep up with her. Zancrow was a bigger threat? The opponent Natsu defeated with one hit? Ridiculous!!!

In order to understand what Mashima does with his female cast in contradiction to his male cast you should read his earlier work. For the most part whenever he writes about a character on a mission to do their parents wishes they all go to the max extreme.

-With most his female characters he tries to maintain a *daddy's/Mommy's little girl* thing. Just look at all of m.
-Most the guys are all the maturing and get up when they fall typ.

Also many of his characters are selfsacrificial to the point of betraying their current alegiance for relatives/lovers and ideals and even chosing their own death. Wich is a lot.

I still can't help but wonder about the tatoo on Bluenote's arm. It is extremely similar to that of fairy tail but it seems to have some key differences. Wonder why he would have such a tatoo if he is a member of grimmoire heart. And what the hell is a deputy director in a guild? First time I ever heard of such a thing.

As for mavis's grave, I think it is going to change the tide of the fight. I have a number of theories:

1.- Fairy law: Too easy though, it would outright eliminate grimmoire heart.
2.- The light will bring back to the island strong people, most likely luxus and gildarts.
3.- Mavis will posses kana and beat the crap out of bluenote.

In spite of the fact that it was obvious mavis's spirit was going to play a role in this fight (as makarov asked him to protect the kids), I know people are going to bitch about this. Bluenote is evidently interested in Mavis so it makes sense for him to be taken out by whatever his spirit is about to do. I seriously can already see people bitching as they did with the grimmoire heart guys but with bluenote lol.

I have no clue about anything else, but I've seen "deputy" used to refer to second-in-command. It would make sense if the word were used in this sense for Bluenote, seeing his interaction with Hades.

*facepalm* obviously, I wasn't refering to her whip since it can't do any damage to opponents like bluenote.

In case it can't be any clearer, I meant her gaining suffiient strength to summon celestial spirits. She could at least help.

Anyway, I forgot to mention that Marvis's glowing tomb would probably help Natsu's team to win somehow.

I hope Azuma doesn't end up just being fodder again for Erza like almost every other character shes had to fight against.....he's too badass for that. I want GH to survive and continue their war against FT somewhere else in a different arc. Natsu definitely should not beat Bluenote.....someone needs to make him realize that Natsu can't just run around, fap to his nakama and rawr. Natsu shouldn't just carry on ignoring Gildartz advice, especially when he really was able to bring Natsu to his knees.

That's just bad storytelling. Hopefully Bluenote will knock some sense into him I guess. This was a pretty good chapter......I was expecting to us to learn some more interesting things about Urtear and Gray, but what we got see instead was still very interesting. Bluenote's face ended up looking alot different from what I expected, he looks kinda old......still can't tell if the tatto on his arm is GH or something else.

Blutenote is definitely on Gildarts level.
For one, shonens like this have a formula for how strong a character can be.
With Age = Experience+strength+skills.

Blutenote and Gildarts look about the same age. Talking about Natsu taking him down should be out of the question.

Natsu has already fought hard, the role of this arc is coming to a conclusion. I'm curious to see how mashima will end this arc.

I would be disappointed if everyone in FT makes it out alive. I know the the point was to get Zeref but plot-wise, some dramatic should happen to the main cast to make a greater impact on the story.

It seems that Hades does not have Bluenote completely under control. And at the same time when Bluenote leaves his ship, he seems not to want to use bluenote. I have the impression that Bluenote is stronger than Hades, or the same level, what do you guys think?

And in Fairy Tail, is Gildartz also stronger than Makarov? Or the same level?

LoS
April 18, 2011, 08:01 PM
Page 7 is just too silly, I know the FT crew will have to keep marching forward with all their might and cling to hope, but what can they expect to accomplish seeing their own Master in such a poor state considering they know they will have to face the culprit who trashed him around to such a degree? But I know they wont simply cave in and give up. I just wished they would come to the realization sooner.

Urtear's provocation, I don't really know what to think. But to be honest, I am just sitting back and letting this storyline develop and taking it in stride.

Azuma facing off against Ezra is all too obvious now. Azuma kept going on about his pride, wanting to face off against strong opposition, so naturally he would want to face Ezra who is the strongest FT guild member on the island behind Makarov.

Page 13 first panel is kind of odd. Hades himself seems a bit sad that he knows Bluenote will destroy FT. But what is odd is him saying he never wanted to use him again. What is the point of having someone in your guild if you don't ever let them use their magic against anything?

Page 14 middle panel is so funny. Levy building up hope thinking that their combined strength would surely be enough to overcome GH. Well it is Fairy Tail, and the good guys will certainly get such a plot boost.

As others have pointed out page 17 bottom panel about flying probably sparks what will be the most widely discussed portion of this chapter. I myself won't go into much discussion on it until I see an alternate translation or the following chapter expanding on this comment.

Looking over Bluenote's tattoo in a much better view this time reveals that it is not very similar to FT's mark, someone earlier said it is, but it isn't. If anything it takes on the shape of a "G" with some feathering out. There isn't a 3 pronged wing shape on it, nor a real tail. But who knows, this could be something similar to One Piece where Nami and the Fish people got a tattoo to cover up an existing tattoo.

Page 21, Bluenote expressing his desire to reach Mavis' grave is a precursor to revealing that there is a way to harness some power from reaching the grave. Someone pointed out earlier that many members would bitch about the grave marker situation, but this page just reveals that by going their you can obtain something.

Many of us could figure out that Mavis' spirit would somehow protect the island from an etherion blast even before Doran Balt revealed that the Council intended to fire a blast. Before this arc it was revealed that the Council would take out FT and it was pretty obvious that once they got to the island and GH showed up the Council would fire the blast.

The only good thing about page 22 is that it reveals that Cana didn't need to see the grave in particular, but it was more just the goal/end point for her to become an S-class in order to meet her father. The Grave wasn't what she had been seeking/longing for, it was just a step in the process of obtaining her new title. Although, this reasoning of becoming an S-class is nowhere near acceptable for her bitching/moaning it is something done in manga quite a bit. The child strives for power/status so that their parent will accept them. Her father must have told her come seek me out once you become S-class.

Page 23 just kind of upsets me, because I would be fine with Mavis' spirit protecting the island and the FT guild members from Etherion and GH, but it looks as if power will be granted to Cana, and this is just not acceptable. Bluenote himself was seeking out power from the grave, but I really don't want to see Cana receive some power boost from Mavis' personally.

Also, isn't it all too convenient that the GH members can easily find and track down the FT members? Azuma seemed to find Ezra in particular and did it quickly. Rustyrose seemed to find the camp without a hitch either. Why can't the FT members find one another easily, or track down/avoid the GH members? There is some parity here that is not sitting well.

Oh as an edit, I was thinking this just the other day, that Azuma would have to fight someone strong from FT before the arc ends. Because he is the only member from the Kin who has not yet had his magic revealed. He will either reveal it's nature to Ezra willingly, or as was the case with Ezra vs. Midnight she will explicitly relay her thoughts to Azuma detailing what his magic is to the reader.

Well, I mean, it's kinda obvious right? That he is her father. Considering that she wants to impress someone, she's been trying to do it for a long time, and they both want to go to the grave (though we don't know why does Bluenote want to get there).

Anyway, I'm sticking with this till it's revealed who's her dad.

Regarding the still can't fly thing, I have no idea what he might be talking about. Probably about himself actually.

FaerieoftheSea

Bluenote Stinger is a pretty powerful guy. If he's got no interest in Fairy Tail and he doesn't care about Zeref. Now, Zeref in itself is enough to make people go, "WOAH! DANGER!" So when one of the most powerful bad guys mentions a mere grave, I think we know it has got to be something monumental.

I honestly don't think it's Mavis' spirit to come help them.

I'm surprised Cana is disregarding the whole battle around her just to become S-Class to see her father. Obviously, he must be very important to her in order for her to go to such drastic measures. Perhaps he's someone very powerful, a bit like Lucy's father? I don't know what she would be proving to her father, unless it had to do something with her mother, but we hardly even know her history. She does drink alcohol a lot, so perhaps it's something to do with that? Maybe she wants to forget her worries?

I don't think Bluenote is her father. The reason I think that is because I don't think he would be going to the grave just to see her or her as an S-Class. Bad guys like them don't usually care about their children (at least in my opinion!). I don't think Cana would just become an S-Class at arriving at the grave.

Also, because of her surprise, I doubt she knew the grave was going to glow. Does anyone else think it started glowing when Bluenote entered play? I don't think just because Cana entered the threshold meant it would start glowing. I don't even think the grave would normally glow if they found it during an uninterrupted S-Class trial. I believe Bluenote's presence is indeed effecting this, especially if Bluenote wants it himself.

Uh... I think that's it, unless I forgot something, for now.

April 18, 2011, 09:30 PM
I agree with you (as I've pointed before) on the part that the grave is probably reacting to Bluenote, since it was already shining before Cana got there.

But what could it be? A super powerful Magic? Lost information? A way to make yourself way stronger than you should be?

Or just the spirit of an old man who wants to protect his island and guild?

I will not confirm this but it appears to have been left implicit.

Bluenote would likely fill the description of an absurdingly powerful father figure who cannot look at his daughter because of her weakness.

Heck if you think things deeper, it might have been that he told her to become an S-Class just before leaving to fight in the war that made him legendary.

Cana's crying panel (Charle's prediction) could be a reference to she finding her long gone father before her in that island.

Above all it's a good thing that Bluenote is a far more deeper character than just a psychopatic juggernaut, if there was one thing that made Brain weak was him going beserk and idiotic for free.

Bluenote won't kill FT as long as his personal goals are fulfilled and that is a clever plot route to avoid the impossibility of facing him at the moment.

FaerieoftheSea
April 18, 2011, 09:39 PM
Oops, haha. I sort of skipped in a page in hurry to filter out what I thought.

It's sort of hard to figure out the importance of the grave. Half of it is discovering whether Bluenote is there for the grave, or for Mavis himself. Mavis is dead (. . . supposedly? I don't know, Zeref is alive, although he was "slumbering". Never put anything out of the question!) so I don't think that means Bluenote is going for him unless his body is important.

After all, it was the grave itself that was glowing. Also, upon re-reading the chapter to analyze it, Hades says he's apologizing to Makarov for using Bluenote again. I wonder what happened last time? And if that mark on his hand that supposedly looks like Fairy Tail's mysteriously relates to that said 'again'?

I totally skipped talking about Ultear and Gray. (Well, and the others.) I don't think much of it right now. Let's see... Ul lost Ultear over about seven or so years ago, yeah? I'm wondering, if with this whole, "Ul's will" (assuming she isn't lying), if it was planned long before by Ul to her daughter. Although, then again, I don't think Ul hinted at anything of the such. For her, it was that she lost her daughter.

After all, why would Ul want this in the first place?

There's the issue, they aren't friends FT is family. I'm also not gonna let my family...or even "friends" get brutally murdered. And is makarov dies who is going to recognize her as S-Class? We'll have to see how it all turns out but as it stands....

Funny thing about all of this is, if Cana's father is some powerful person, or even an extremely strong Mage, just what will Cana accomplish by gaining the title S-Class?

It in itself wont make her stronger, it is simply a title. Although, it is looking like she will receive some power boost this arc, so she unfortunately will get stronger.

Anyway, it would be hilarious if her father was like, "well you claim you are S-Class, yet you are still so weak."

So instead of asking for help, you'd back stab your own family (yes cause the bond in FT isn't just a friendship bond, it's a family bond) in order to accomplish something? I'm sorry but that's just the worst kind of people there is.

Now, if you lie to them and make them "suffer" just to let them go making it look like they escaped and then telling them the truth, that's not lack of character, that's not wanting to help you.

What Cana did was to endanger the others, mainly Lucy, because she wanted to become an S-Class mage. She wasn't doing it so she could protect them, she did this because she is only thinking about herself.

Well yeah, they said the guy ended the war the moment he got in there but he doesn't seem to be crazy maniacal villain, more like, I want to do what suits me best.

It's too bad that the 7 Kin have been downgraded each chapter this arc. You would think that if they are in the presence of such monumental juggernaut powerhouses in Hades and Bluenote each and every single day it would have forced themselves to become ridiculously strong as well.

Ero-Sanji
April 18, 2011, 11:23 PM
As I mentioned before, Cana is just after the title. Now we know it's her father. The question is what Los mentioned what does she need the title for? Perhaps it's a sign toward her father that she's strong now and that he will come to her and not the other way around.

Now, the interesting part is that the grave is glowing at the moment she stepped in, why?

I'm scared of two things at the moment. First is the coalition of Lily, Lisanna and writer girl(forgot her name), I'm worried that they might actually manage to defeat Rustyrose because of their team work... The other thing is that Bluenote just came across Natsu, and we all know that Natsu has a thing for utterly defeating much much stronger opponents.

Come to think of it, Levy's power has some similarities with Rustyrose's one (he can materialize what he imagines => she materializes what she writes). So it's not that farfetched to have them fight and Levy winning by outsmarting him.

Don't forget that Levy was chosen as an S-class candidate. With some confidence and a good opponent matchup, she could shine.

Well I'm not to worried. If Natsu win it would be probably thanks to the help of Marvis spirit. I don't think it will be just a power boost for Kana but for the entire guild.
But I'm really curious about why bluenote was searching for him. And if this is related to the fact that Zeref was on the island

may be there wouldn't be much of a fight between natsu and bluenote. Natsu could use Gildart's lesson here that he is of no match against such a powerful opponent. Of course, Blue note wouldn't let them escape until he knows where the grave is. Lucy could easily save the day by either blurting out the location of the real grave or just giving him a fake location.

As for cana, what she did wasn't right but I don't see her as bad as some of you think she is. Obviously, she regards her biological father closer to her than anyone in her FT family. Afterall, everyone can have a lot of family members (close family friends, godsiblings etc) but only one pair of biological parents.

wow, impressing chapter. so now we know that there's much more about mavis grave than just being a grave. Bluenote has to have some other intentions.. some that even surpass zeref.. also urtears speech about ur's will might come up interesting..

to be honest i can't imagine what will happen next. well erza will defeat azuma, guess there's no questioning that.

also natsu & crew won't be able to defeat bluenote, he's just too powerful.

rustyrose vs. the other guys... well i can't see defeating them now while their spiritual energy is depleted.. maybe they get some support by cana..


so what could possibly happen? some things i thought of are:

- mavis grave somehow boosting cana's power up to the insane, letting her defeat bluenote. don't think that could be it as hades would still be left.

- the grave with some sort of technique restoring the magical energy of every FT member.. that would be kind of lame to be honest..

- the grave / mavis summoning some powerful allys... well maybe, because we're just all curious about seeing gildartz fight in a real battle where he can just go crazy

- the spirit of mavis vermillion appearing.. doing something..(most probable one i guess)... like.. illuminating cana so she notices that she did something wrong.. taking over her body going wild.. it would be great to at least see mavis.. fighting against hades would be insane..

- the glowing part may just be some magic spell done by makarov to guide to the last part of the exam




and bluenote.. maybe he just wants to become S-class, too :D

Or he is cana's father :D

I don't know if it as already been mentioned, but does anyone think that Canas' father is Bluenote. Both of them seem determined to get to Mavis's grave. Maybe she wants to get it so she can meet him.

Edit: Nvm I see it has already been brought up.

April 19, 2011, 03:01 AM
Well, I mean, it's kinda obvious right? That he is her father. Considering that she wants to impress someone, she's been trying to do it for a long time, and they both want to go to the grave (though we don't know why does Bluenote want to get there).

Anyway, I'm sticking with this till it's revealed who's her dad.

Regarding the still can't fly thing, I have no idea what he might be talking about. Probably about himself actually.

I guess the can't fly thing was meant to diss the members of Fairy Tails cause normaly Fairys are able to fly but the gild members can't do it.

Well I'm not to worried. If Natsu win it would be probably thanks to the help of Marvis spirit. I don't think it will be just a power boost for Kana but for the entire guild.

No offence toward you're post but this is exactly what I fear. When will Natsu through his own strength defeat someone?

I know that an ongoing theme in FT is friendship and teamwork but for once it would be so satisfying for Natsu to either lose or win through his own work.

Since the attack of GH I knew/thought that the Grave will be behind their retreat and I still hope it will work that way but not that it empowers everyone to win a battle that by the author is an impossible task.

In this arc Mashima has in some way created a double standard were they are supposed to know when to give up but then allows them to skip this "rule" at the same time, in the same arc.

Anyway, I still have faith and hope that Bluenot will inflict severe damage and that he, Ultear and Makarov leaves the island victorious. Rustyrose and Azuma are probably doomed and I'm really interested at ho this will work out. I mean Levy wasn't that great against the goat and the rooster but I guess the friendship boost will help her. Even though I like swimsuit Erza:D I'm curious to see her potential explosive or bomb armour.

Btw, how did the GH-ship get up again?

Still not fully convinced but i won't say that it doesn't is possible !!

And about the flying thing , i think that he is talking to Natsu! Bluenote is in a very high class, he probably already did a lot of very dangerous stuff! He probably knows a lot of stuff about the Dragons!

So i think that he probably was talking about Natsu! Although i don't have any idea how the hell did understood in just a matter of seconds that he couldn't sleep!

But i am sticking with this opinion ! I think that Natsu still has a lot to learn and we definitely are going to see more hidden powers coming from them. If Dragon Slayers perfect everything that the dragons taught them I think that them will have close powers and comparable to the dragons! And we can't forget how strong the dragons are , even Gildartz wouldn't stand a chance against one!

I also wonder if the grave is ganna give everyone a sudden buff D:

April 19, 2011, 05:49 AM
Talk about exaggerating,
that line about "no life will be left alive" irritated me, it's like the bad guys look down on themselves too after all that hyping, its like oracion seis all over again but this time its bluenote as zero but before I say that, I approve that this is not an asspull because Cana foreshadowed it a long time ago.
That's not my only complain tho, natsu is behaving in a sudden mature way that is odd and then what in the world is spiritual energy? Was that ever brought up by ft? If yes, I apologize.
Cana is insane over his father to go that far and it seems that instead of hades as the main big bad, we have bluenote now. Surely there'll be a Kana flashback/backstory + Natsu getting mad + sudden powerup or as k-dom mentioned via marvis grave + pwning Bluenote.
Then my prediction is that Makarov goes for a rematch with Hades..
Gravity is disappointing, the rest of them have much more interesting powers.. and there's a zero vibe in this guy.
Is Gray not going to fight again? It seems to be the case according to the matchups..and urtear talking like that.

The good thing is that Hades is not laughing it off and is actually getting serious now that his guild is losing.

saya1987
April 19, 2011, 06:11 AM
my interpretation of bluenote's flying statement is that it is linked to his gravitational powers. It wasn't a mockery of fairies.

"can you fly?"
"nope, still can't fly."
At this point, he's probably thinking, if you can't fly, might as well fall and thus, he used gravity to crush them.

Anyway, I don't think there's much to the statement. It's probably a phrase(and also a character trait) which he likes to say a lot or that he says it before he attacks someone. It's kinda like saggitarius who keeps repeating his phrase of "moshi moshi" or kain repeating "woowhee".


Btw, doesn't it nag you when hades said" I hand't intended on using him(bluenote) again."

I'm really curious when was the first time hades used bluenote and it seems like bluenote knows marakov personally.

And this would fix a lot of annoying moments! :zomg

it would just be too perfect for him and to us :toc

If Bluenote is the Deputy-Commander does that mean there's others beside him, the 7kin and Hades( Him being the Commander I presume.)

@Ero Sanji - Technically, Natsu always uses his power, other people just tend to awake it.

Against Gerard when he ate Etherion he awakened Dragon Force, a power that was sleeping inside of him and that needs to be properly fueled (since he still doesn't know how to awaken it by himself).

Same thing against Zero, he got the same power awakened by Gerard this time.

Against Zancrow he used his own power to cancel his own magic power and then ate Zancrow's fire to overpower him.

In all instances, it's his own power that he uses, it's just that he gets some help awakening it cause he hasn't mastered his own abilities yet.

Its funny how many among you have been bitching around for so long about the importance of friendship and nakama-powered plots in the manga!
...and now backstabbing friends is like the worse thing anyone could have done in FT!
So she wants to see her father...
Not the best excuse ever - But frankly - people are selfish - they always want something in return - I see the Cana-meeting-father in a whole new light...
How can love for someone just mean everything that you obsess till exasperation!
Its human nature...
But frankly -_ having the S-class title really means not a damn thing!
Okay you get higher ranked missions - But does that mean you are the strongest?
Maybe her 'father' set a condition that she should become an S-CLASS before she can meet him again...

The whole grave thing makes you think that Bluenote could be Cana's dad!
But its highly improbable!...
Again - Bluenote is being hyped! Be ready to collect your pieces when someone in FT will bust his ass! (which will happen because this is FT!)
I am seriously hoping its not Natsu! :s

Azuma vs Erza is thrilling!
On one side you have the woman who usually never loses...
and on the other side you've got Azuma - the kind of guy who is not used to losing in mangas (Have you seen how the guy is drawn!!? Some kind of adonis :D)

This does not explain why she k.o.ed Lucy and went off on her own ^^. Since the S-Class trial is a team effort they could have tagteamed all the way to the end and make Cana S-Class.
Lucy didnt bail out on her cause of the flair but she took out Lucy and ran off...why?

So that defeats the entire idea that her goal is become S-Class to see her dad.

Seriously i think its the grave and w/e secret it holds that she plans to get for her dad.

meepers4982
April 19, 2011, 11:13 AM
okay chapter, but definitely better than nothing. I think under the circumstances that ca12nag3 states: (seriously i think its the grave and w/e secret it holds that she plans to get for her dad.) i could see bluenote being her father and getting tired of waiting and going to the grave himself.
However that doesnt sound to be very plausible especially since her goal is to become an s-class mage and not to see the grave especially since the trials change every year for the s-class test.
One theory i have is that part of the reason cana wants to be an s-class mage is so that she is strong enough to fend of blue-note (idk im trying to make a connection since mashima is practically screaming at us that there is on)
i quickly went back to the part where he is shown and he has the same hair coloring style cana does so father possibility just rose a little bit in my book.
also interesting point to not is that lucy is the only concious on left from the group encountered by bluenote so good possibility she will lead him there, also another hint that there is a relation between the two.

k-dom
April 19, 2011, 11:21 AM
Hum, the grave was just the aim of the current S-class test. If Makarov had asked to search a lemon tree, Kana would be searching a lemon tree. It's completely unrelated to her father or the fact that bluenote is searching the grave too or else it's a mega coincidence.
That her father has asked for her to become a S-class mage is more credible. Or maybe she knows where he is but his location can only be reached by completing an S-class mission

* Looks like Natsu gets to fight Bluenote....ah, well. I personally think he won't stand a chance against that guy, but Natsu being Natsu, you never know when he gets another super power up. :| anyways Bluenote expressed interest in the grave, so hopefully Natsu won't get to stop him ya know what I mean? He's gotta get to that grave so we'd know what he wants from there. Either he'd trash Natsu and team or they'll get separated. I can't see him falling before he gets to his destination :D

* I don't like that there's a Lucy fanservice all the time. She's more than that, peoples. **Sighs.

* Erza vs Azuma-- I think they're on the same level in combat, and both already fought soumeone in the previous chaps, so hopefully we get to see a decent, well-balanced fight :}

* Rustyrose vs everyone in the camp-- hmm, maybe Levy's script magic can do some good. Not saying she'll beat him easy, just that they're both er, "creating" something out of nothing? I'm not sure about Lisanna fighting... she seems still shaken...and am I the only one that didn't like Lisanna counting on Natsu's arrival? It was sweet, I'd accept if you insist, but I thought she should know to fight for her own at least. Or maybe she's just tired too after her fight w/ Erza....

* Gray and Urtear--I can never guess where the story's going, w/ those two.

I want to say that Urtear's just pretending..but I don't see a reason for her to at that moment. I mean what will she gain? If she has some resentment against Gray she could easily fight and defeat him w/o having to pretend anything, maybe kill him. (not underestimating gray, just giving a senario) If she's serious about pretending then it means she wants Gray on her/their side, and in order to get him she must pretend she's an ally. But for what? Is Gray that powerful or important to try to recruit? O_O

If she's saying the truth, then Deliora's arc was just a bit wasted, for I thought the essence of it was Ur's love. Besides, she openly admitted to all those schemes involving Gerard and deliora befiore... I just can't think of Ur as evil...maybe she is but it's a different side, another persona? The Ur who thought and protected Gray and Leon doesn't seem capable of evil to me :|

It could also work this way-there's a third evil person involved. someone brainwashing Urtear into believing what she's doing is her mother's will.. oh well. i'll stop wondering and just wait for the truth to be revealed. it's much easier though it'd take so long. lol :D

But whichever is true, there's something to Urtear's pretense. She has got to have a reason to share those things to Gray, true or not.

*i'm sleepy now, so let's not make me start with Cana. i want to give her a chance to redeem herself but as it is her reason's personal and therefore her actions were selfish. try much better next chapter, pretty miss. :|

...all in all I thought it's a good chapter :) not very very good but not bad either. good night!

In all instances, it's his own power that he uses, it's just that he gets some help awakening it cause he hasn't mastered his own abilities yet.

Technically this so called power of his own is fueled by some other energy.

Etherion had energy within that made him more powerful but it's not just his own power as in own ability but his skill to actually defeat one by himself.

Against the Grim Reaper, he got help from Happy.
Against Gazeel, he got help from Lucy.
Against Gérard, he got help from Erza and the darkness dude.
Against Zero, he got help from Gérard.
Against Zancrow, he got help from Makarov.

When is he going to win by himself against a major foe. I mean I don't care if he gets help from time to time but not every single time. I for once would like for him to lose since it shows room for growth etcetera but sometimes I feel it's just too much. The first two are okey, better yet even great but at the time it came to Zero it became too predictable.

Remember though these are my opinions, the bad thing with constant power-ups from random sides are like in this situation. The minute I saw Bluenote infront of Natsu I immediately thought tht Natsu would get a power up from Mavis and then at the end of the arc it started glowing. Not saying it's bound to happen but it would suck if it did.

I don't care that Natsu got help from others in order to beat two strong opponents, Jellal and Zero. These are fights he shouldn't have been able to win. It's just too much. Jellal was a wizard saint, Zero was the master of OS and much more stronger than Brain. And Natsu defeated them.Heck, why didn't Natsu get a title of Wizard Saint then if defeated one? It's just suitable, right? I really really hope Mashima doesn't ruin this arc by giving Natsu WTF power-up.

I'll see your 10 dollars and raise you another 20 that he won't won't touch Bluenote or I'll seriously question Mashima, he's not his level. He just about defeated Zancrow by using up all his magical power and getting a hand from Makarov...and that wasn't before his ass was handed to it by the Godslayer.


And people are paying too much attention to what Bluenote has said about "flying". Most probably he's making a reference to fairies and his ability to bring anyone down(gravity) imo.

FaerieoftheSea
April 19, 2011, 02:37 PM
Okay, maybe this will be a bit more insight into the whole "flying" thing.

Hades did say he was using Bluenote again. Bluenote himself, "Nope, still can't fly." Still! I'm thinking this whole "flying" thing may be a reference to that previous event when Bluenote encountered Fairy Tail. Although most of you are probably right and it does entail the ability of fairies to fly, I think this explains it moreso.

Krono
April 19, 2011, 03:11 PM
Page 13 first panel is kind of odd. Hades himself seems a bit sad that he knows Bluenote will destroy FT. But what is odd is him saying he never wanted to use him again. What is the point of having someone in your guild if you don't ever let them use their magic against anything?

That one is easy. Just because you never want to use something or someone again does not mean that you won't need to use it/them again. Therefore you keep it around just in case, and so that it can't be easily picked up by someone else and used, particularly against you.


I'm scared of two things at the moment. First is the coalition of Lily, Lisanna and writer girl(forgot her name), I'm worried that they might actually manage to defeat Rustyrose because of their team work...

Why scared? I'd be entirely unsurprised. Consider that Fairy Tail has a strong theme of good teamwork winning, and that this arc has a theme of the Kin being defeated by their own power being used against them.

Then consider that while Rusty Rose was explaining what his power was, he stated that it had several limitations and restrictions before boasting that even so he'd never been defeated. Zoldeo then demonstrated just how ruinous breaking those limits and restrictions could be. Then Azuma cautioned Rusty Rose against underestimating Fairy Tail, and it does not seem that Rusty Rose heeded his advice.

In other words, Rusty Rose is well set up for someone relatively weak but smart like Levy to figure out what his limitations are, use teamwork to exploit those limits and restrictions against him, and defeat him as a karmicly fitting punishment for his hubris.

I hope my point is clear.

It's wrong when it happens every single time with the same character since it brings forth an inconvenient predictability. That's why I prefer Erza's and Gray's battles over Natsu's. The Neji and Byakuya aren't that good examples, no? That's like saying Lucy is getting help from her spirits(which she does but they are her spirits fueled by her magic). Hollow and Kyuubi are their powers just like Dragon force etcetera but etherion and flame of rebuke and so on are given power-ups.

I don't have a problem with outside help, it's great when it's nicely done but not in situation when it appears forced, unnecessary and illogical.

I'm scared because she didn't do that much against Gazeel nor for Gazeel. She did well but I'm not impressed and I wouldn't bet on her against a 7 Kin, especially not this one.

Look at the situation, this guy single-handedly defeated both Elfman and Evergreen at the same time without receiving injury. His opponent are the weakest around and the strongest cat but they can barely move let alone fight because of lack of magic. How are they supposed to win if not for a random and forced spell out of the blue? That's what I fear since it would be very repetitive and I sincerely hope that I'm severely wrong, I still have faith.

I agree, I think that natsu will put the advice he got earlier from gildartz to use and try to flee from the scene. No way he's beating this guy. My bet it he'll distract blue note so the rest can escape, or someone intervenes. Hopefully gildartz or laxus.

FaerieoftheSea
April 19, 2011, 03:49 PM
I think Natsu will probably try to attack Bluenote at the least. I can say that he always tries to go up against the more powerful opponent, whether or not to win, although it seems that he does win most of the time. So I have doubts he'll flee the scene.

I recall earlier when Natsu said he was afraid that he wouldn't get to fight Hades to avenge Makarov. Since Hades is the guild leader and Bluenote is around second-in-command, Natsu looks like he's going to go for it. I think that Hades is probably more powerful, so if Natsu can't defeat Bluenote, he has no chances of defeating Hades. (Or if Bluenote is more powerful, then. . . Well, whatever.)

I'm not saying he should or can defeat him, I'm just saying that's the order of things here.

Well, unless Gildartz comes back, yeah?

LoS
April 19, 2011, 06:40 PM
The good thing is that Hades is not laughing it off and is actually getting serious now that his guild is losing.

No this is wrong. He is merely surprised that the brats of FT are able to defeat members of the 7 Kin whom know Lost Magic. He personally isn't serious, in fact his is actually saddened and reluctant. He is disappointed that to accomplish his goal of retrieving Zeref and defeating Fairy Tail he had to resort to unleashing a monstrous power, something that is not very fair in his mind. He had hoped that the 7 Kin would prove capable but they were not. Hence his sigh, indicating having Bluenote go isn't something he would have normally wanted, and also from his line I guess I was too late, he wanted to persuade Bluenote to not head to the battlefield.


People need to realize something here, Cana is searching for the grave for the sole reason that it is the goal of the test. She needs to find the grave to obtain S-Class status. The grave is not what she wanted to see prior to this exam. The grave is not her father. Some posters have pointed this out, but far too many people are still confused.

Now, the S-Class status part is still incredibly dull. Just by obtaining a new title but not a significant boost in power is supposed to make her Father accept her. Even if the Father told her come find me when you become an S-Class mage it is still very droll. But sadly it is becoming more and more evident that she will receive a power boost. With Bluenote unleashed and heading toward the grave along with Mavis' spirit/aura illuminating the grave Cana will most likely receive some power boost from the grave to deal with Bluenote for the time being, but I really hope the power boost won't be permanent.


As some others have pointed out the line about flying from Bluenote most likely has no connection at all to Dragon Slayers, but rather his own power of Gravity. I don't take his personality to be the kind which taunts and makes fun of the opposition, he seems very serious and remorseful even. He seems to recognize that he has incredibly power and works efficiently in getting the job done.


A minor few posters have remarked on the Levy vs. Rustyrose fight, and yes it is definitely built up for Levy to be victorious. Levy being crafty and intelligent will make use of her power to find a loophole in Rusty's magic and overcome his cocky/overconfident personality. Mashima has been blatantly mashing the idea of hope, and teamwork down our throats. Levy will defeat someone who vastly outclasses her and has superior magical power.


This arc is extremely close to the conclusion, I am afraid we will not get to see a lengthy or detailed fight between Azuma and Ezra. Both of whom have already fought, but both had early endings to their fights. Ezra's fight never really got started or fully serious and was interrupted. Azuma's fight was cut short due to Mira's endurance, she was full power but couldn't maintain it long enough to continue the fight. The arc is being set up for only Urtear to be the sole member of the Kin to go undefeated this arc.


One thing to note that no one has been able to wrap their head around is what exactly Bluenote did last time Hades unleashed him? Hades is incredibly reluctant to unleash Bluenote due to his vast power. Hades as he has admitted is the type to take things in stride and wanted to be entertained watching his guild members fight. He could have easily killed literally every single person on the island within minutes, but chose not to. I can't see the reasoning being something so trivial as Hades didn't want to use Bluenote because it would be over all too quickly and not entertain him enough. But it certainly appears this is the reason.


Last bit. But why do people believe Bluenote and Cana are related? Is it simply because he has dark hair like her? Is it because of the coincidence of them both aiming for the grave? Is it because him revealing he knows about Mavis and the grave indicates he has a connection to Fairy Tail? As of now they are all just suppositions, and none of which are very concrete at all.

I don't care that Natsu got help from others in order to beat two strong opponents, Jellal and Zero. These are fights he shouldn't have been able to win. It's just too much. Jellal was a wizard saint, Zero was the master of OS and much more stronger than Brain. And Natsu defeated them.Heck, why didn't Natsu get a title of Wizard Saint then if defeated one? It's just suitable, right? I really really hope Mashima doesn't ruin this arc by giving Natsu WTF power-up.

All of Natsu's opponents from now on are probably going to be around that level or higher. So what do you want the main character to do? Not fight and twittle his thumbs or just get owned every fight till the manga ends?

Well, to be fair the seven kin were grossly outnumbered. From the chapter I got the impression that hades was more disappointed in the fighting coming to an end rather than the seven kin being defeated though. He was laughing pretty hard about it just a few chapters ago.

Hades was the former master of FT, he knows that his former guild doesn't kill their opponents unless under extreme circunstances.

For that reason seeing his own pupils getting knocked out was like watching WFF on Saturday night where people beat each other in a display of art.

Bluenote is like bringing the Undertaker to a battle of mid-weighted fighters, he will utterly crush them all without barely feeling their strongest blows. In other words it takes the fun out of the show while making it a lot bloodier.

Hades came hoping that the Seven kin would simply come and trumph each of their opponents on a fair match which would be an honorful victory for Grimmoire Heart.

Bluenote makes that victory quite pyrrhic as it meant that Hades lost most of his troops and had to apelate in order to win.

It's exactly the same reason why he didn't crushed FT by himself, there is a thing in the FT world that is called guild honor and that is measured by how well the whole of your guild can cope up with it's goals.

To explain it better imagine that Makarov and Guildartz decided that they should take care of every hard mission FT receives because beings of their strenght doesn't need to delegate resposabilities to lesser guild members.

You know what would happen to Fairy Tail?

It would become a joke, every other guild would say "Look at those lechers of Makarov and Guildartz" and "Hey morons! How are your parents sustaining you today?".

There wouldn't be a point in having a guild if only a couple people in it were responsible for everything, in fact this is exactly why Laxus went mad in the first place.

He saw his guild acting like a bunch of fools and bearing all the burden of keeping it's name up to high regards all by himself.

So, in a nutshell, whenever Hades uses Bluenote it's like admiting that Grimmoire Heart is only powerful because it has juggernauts like the deputy commander and guild master who can sigle-handedly succed in destroying everything when the rest prove useless.

It's wrong when it happens every single time with the same character since it brings forth an inconvenient predictability. That's why I prefer Erza's and Gray's battles over Natsu's. The Neji and Byakuya aren't that good examples, no? That's like saying Lucy is getting help from her spirits(which she does but they are her spirits fueled by her magic). Hollow and Kyuubi are their powers just like Dragon force etcetera but etherion and flame of rebuke and so on are given power-ups.

I don't have a problem with outside help, it's great when it's nicely done but not in situation when it appears forced, unnecessary and illogical.

its like people can't just accept that with each arc he gets stronger. Getting stronger isn't an asspull, its natural progression. It'd be boring watching training sessions. they're implied to happen.

What do you want to happen though? Natsu get weaker and the fights get progressively more boring?

But you see that is the problem, his growth gets hidden behind power-ups after power-ups. Personally, his fights are already getting more and more boring and very predictable: He fights an opponent that's too strong, gets beaten, rises, eats something and finish it big. I wish for once that he could beat someone like he did against the barrier dude in the Moon drip island, by his own brains and brawns.

I'm with you though, no training sessions those are even worse than random and forced power-ups. This arc was however built up in a way that made it sound like FT is going to get f'd up, I just feel a little cheated. But that's normal, an author can't please everybody all the time. Furthermore, I'm ready for Erza vs Azuma, there's a woman who can fight, just hope we can skip her special eye this arc:p

I'm scared because she didn't do that much against Gazeel nor for Gazeel. She did well but I'm not impressed and I wouldn't bet on her against a 7 Kin, especially not this one. .

I dont think this is fair. Levy as well as all the S-Class candidates have a fair shot at becomming S-Class so shes not that far off from being good enough to do a S-Class quest.
Saying that i mean that she has the overall capacity. This means that her combined skills both combat, intelligence and determination have what it takes.
Its just that the physicaly strong mages are more impressive but this does not mean they are stronger then those that use their brains, matter of fact most of the time they lose cause they lack the ability to look thrue the oponents traps and where the oponent is weakest.
(i guess that makes Erza the most complete mage there is :D but thats besides the point :P).

If Levy uses all her skills im sure she can preform equally as all the other candidates like Elfman,Gray and Natsu. So her chance to win is there.

You Say
April 20, 2011, 08:55 AM
Great chapter. Bluenote reminds me some characters from Groove Adventure Rave. And in my opinion It's awesome how "not so pretty" he is. And It would be epic if Mavis rises from grave and begins to assembling some strong mages. We would get another powerful side besides Grimoire Heart, Fairy Tail, Council, Tartaros and Raven Tail. Long future for Fairy Tail.
For the next few chapters, I hope that Hades will assemble all the kins back on ship and gets away with Zeref. I would love to see rematch between Natsu and Zancrow (yes I find Zancrow as a good character and his fight with Natsu was really good in my eyes), Elfman and Rustyrose, Mirajane and Asuma etc.
I like how Mashima starts one thing in some arc and begins consecrate on it later. Like he done with Laxus's rebellion, Mystogan's identity, whole that Gildarts foreshadowing thing. I like this style. So It would be nice if this conflict would be solved in future.

Awesome chapter, glad to see Asuma and Erza facing off, should be an epic fight. I think Rustyrose deserves a fight with a strong character instead of the 'weaker' Fairy Tail members. I like Bluenote's design, I was expecting to see someone that looked like Admiral Zhao from Avater: The Last Airbender but I like his somewhat 'ugly' design and his Gravity magic is kickass.

I'm not sure if this has been asked yet but does anybody know what it says on the back of Bluenote's jacket?

He should be round about the same age, but that doesn't mean he's related to Cana. Cana's plans just seem to coincide with where Bluenote is going (Mavis' grave), someone else mentioned she's just following the rules for the S-class exams. If it was for her to find a shoe, she woulda been somewhere completly different :p.

I'm personally looking forward to the Azuma vs Erza fight; a fight between powerhouses are always interesting. On the other hand, Natsu and co shouldn't be able to stop Bluenote because theyre weakened and he needs to progress so the story can advance and we can find out what he wants with the grave.

I didn't say she doesn't have a chance but that her slight chance to actually win is what I'm afraid of.

Let me explain why: Levy is smart and all that, I know that but at the moment she is up against a guy that took both Elfman and Evergreen out without getting hurt. Does this mean it's impossible for Levy to win? No, but judging from how she fought against the "demons" she didn't do anything outstanding that this battle actually requires. The only way I can see her, Lily and Lisanna win is by some ass-pull ancient spell that she has, that in some way power's up animals or something like that, much like how Lucy won against Angel.

Now I understand that she might find some weak spot but that would require that she uses a lot of spells to test his powers and keep him and his beast(s) away or/and while she is studying him Lisanna and Lily will fight him. However, seeing how easily he took care of Elfman and Evergreen I can't see how those two would fair against him. Lastly, the good side has a major weakness at the moment. They are tired. Lisanna said that all of them were exhausted to the limit.

Hadn't it been for this major point I would have been for a sort of intelligent plan to defeat him but at the moment I can't see a victory unless it's forced and illogical or silly, like Levy writing lightning or electricity and due to the rain zaps everyone, however seeing how the arc of embodiment works he should be able to make a rubber suit:p

I won't be surprised if Cana's dad is a member of Grimoire Heart, possibly BlueNote, b/c I can't tolerate a casual "family reunion" after all the risks she's taken.

FaerieoftheSea
April 21, 2011, 08:37 PM
I don't see why Bluenote could be Cana's father. Cana is really trying to prove herself to her father, and that means he won't accept her readily. If he meets her, it's by accident. Cana wants to become an S-Class in order to meet her father. Honestly, the particular mission of finding the grave from Bluenote has nothing to do with her becoming an S-Class and meeting her father to me. If he was her father, he wouldn't go to the grave or the S-Class trials because he wouldn't care about meeting her. It's all about how she has to prove herself to him.

Although if Bluenote -was- her father, I believe him wanting to find the grave would be mere coincidence, and not to mention his status in Grimoire Heart sort of requires him to be there.

That's what I think. :D

saya1987
April 22, 2011, 02:03 AM
Personally, I find the following theories are absurd:
-bluenote is related to cana
-Cana is related to mavis

Just because they're both searching for the grave doesn't mean that they're related. Cana is only doing that to pass her exam and bluenote probably wants revenge. I don't think bluenote wants power because hades would've wanted it for himself.

Personally, another thing that intrigued me is the lack of mages that are of the same age group as bluenote. So far, I can only think of gildarts, macao, wakaba, layla, ichiya, ivan, ur. Even then, I would say some are actually quite young.

Before Marakov became the 2nd master of FT, he used to have a team(it was shown in a photo which includes Porlyusica and some others.) but I'm sure the guild should have more mages than that but where did they go?

Presumably, everyone is either retired or dead except gildarts and bluenote. This kinda make them seem like loners...haha, okay, I rambled tooo much.

One of Charle's visions involved Cana on her knees, crying. I checked between that outfit and the one she's wearing when she visits the grave and they're the exact same. It doesn't necessarily mean that'll happen now, but I think Charle's second vision is about to come true. This whole grave thing seems pretty big. I have no idea why she would cry unless Bluenote was there torturing her or something. . . Unless she meets her father? (I have no idea why that would happen. I don't think it's Mavis.)

I don't think Cana would cry because a grave would be glowing, so it seems like something pretty important. Like a person.

[Edit]: Also! Lisanna says Natsu thinks he'd be able to meet Igneel if he was S-Class. Maybe we're thinking (or at least I'm thinking) about this the wrong way. Not that her father doesn't care about her, or that he told her to become S-Class. What if her father is like Igneel and can't be reached? Or she has to finally put faith into her power by being classified as S-Class and will know she'd be able to save him from something or other?

[Editx2]: Going to refresh our minds. Apparently Cana told Lucy about her whole story -- her obsession with becoming S-Class and wanting to meet her father. Lucy apparently thought it was strong enough to join with Cana. Perhaps this understanding allowed Cana to knock Lucy out, although I'm not positively sure about the whole thing at all.

[Editx3]: (This whole going through and re-reading manga pages helps tons.) Makarov said Mavis "sleeps" on the island. I wonder if this is nifty word-play, or perhaps a subtle hint of foreshadowing?

The whole strategy is cliché but it will work - The evil creator pitted against the one sweet but intelligent girl...

Really - I hope no one from GH gets in FT!
Frankly - am done with FT accepting all those they beat in pulp - what is FT? a rehab??...o0

And again!
Please - do not raise your hopes on Bluenote! Are you people reading the same manga I am?!
I am hefty sure he'll be taken by Gild/Erza/Laxus! Tho am really expecting a huge plothole detailing how Gild/Laxus will reach in the island!

Well said, we also have to keep in mind to which age gruop the manga is directed 13+ mostly teens which would not really be hyped by character deaths (although i wanna see a tearful scene which would be most epic) and their 'hero's' losing i rather think they prefer Natsu and co. winning in some weird cool way.

keeping that in mind i'm happy with how FT is going and totally hyped for Cana's backstory which will hopefully clear as to why she's being so as you guys put it 'idiotic, stupid' etc. Still she's a good person and regardless of what she did till now (abandoning Lucy who got almost killed bla bla bla) i don't want to say she's trash yet...(and Lucy is my fav. female character so...) still she deserves a chance looking back to phantom arc and so ^^

Also speaking of Lucy...she and her mum are fishy hmmm Capricorn might explain something hopefully! and Lucy is yet to do the important part she said she'd play in the beginning of the arc...i doubt its a nice vacation in some resort although a 'Lucy saving the day' is not usual it seems it's something along that lines

well i guess you're right ^^' we have different opinions though thats normal xD kingdom heart i love haha okay my lucy is hades granddaughter is obviously speculation =P but if i have a hunch that lucy and zeref are connected someway and maashima goes another way i dont mind ^^

thoeries are fun, speculations are bound to be dissappointing yes im a ft fan but i wont let my thoeries or speculation ruin the manga for me as i said

I have to agree with your opinion. I think Lucy is connected to Zeref and the dragonslayers. I really can't wait for what Mashima has in store for her in the future.

I really hope the next chapter shows the fights with Azuma and Erza. I really want to know more about his magic.

April 25, 2011, 01:36 PM
Azuma is cool and i cannot wait for his fight with erza which should be good but i find rustyrose's magic to be more intriguing although i'm more curious to see how he'll be defeated xD thanks for agreeing! something is definetely up i mean Lucy didnt even see zeref who was right in front of her and zeref was out so couldnt see Lucy which is weird lol
also is it me or does only natsu call lucy, Luce? --> sorry random moment xD

Looks as if Cana has a break-down after realizing what an ass she has been to her friends and guild... and ends with her determined to help out her friends from the onslaught of GH.

Also noted... looks as if we have finally seen all the "Foreseen" images that Charlie had. Natsu crying... check. Hand on the ground... check? Cana crying... check.

When did we saw Natsu crying i don't remember :huh

@Jacke12 I think he is talking about the time Natsu fought Gildartz and knew he had no chance but I don't think that is the image Charle seen in her vision.

you beat me to it haha, yea i think there will be another moment with Natsu since this is a sad look on his face, yet the crying in the premonition is out of anger and that hes ready to fight.

this is the premonition crying it rather seems sadness to me than anger but looking closely it could be both anywho it might be in this chapter cuz he looks like he's kneeling bluenotes doing? maybe he hurt someone from team natsu

I think the LLL fight would be really interesting. The 2 underdogs of Fairy Tail I guess and a cat.....against Rustyrose, the dude who beat Elfman and Evergreen so easily. I really hope this isn't the last time we see both Azuma and Rustyrose. I really like both of their characters.

i really have taken a liking to most of GH especially meldy, as well as azuma, ultear and rustyrose, but seems to me that till now meldy is most probable to continue the tradition of joining ft thanks to juvia xD
LLL as in Lissana, levy and ?
edit; i forgot caprico already joined but didnt also juvia and gajeel join from before at same time maybe multiple joinings xD

April 25, 2011, 02:26 PM
LLL = Lily, Lisanna, and Levy

Yeah same here I've take a liking to all the members. I really hope this isn't the last time we see them.

I don't think Meldy will join. I remember reading a post that said where ever Ultear goes is where Meldy stays and I have to agree with that. If Ultear joins FT (which I highly doubt) than maybe Meldy will follow but who knows maybe :)

Natsu crying will probably be at the end when makarov dies. Because makarov has like no chance in surviving.

Oh lilly yes, i knew he was there and yet *facepalm*

maybe Ultear leaves and meldy decides that sticking to ft will help her find her again? but what you say i guess you're right as much as i wish she stays she was so adorable as a kid haha :D

Levy interests me too wish they'd do her past too, although next arc might be on lucy's mum unless its an ongoing topic like ellies memory was in rave

yeah youre right lets compare and contrast;
http://www.mangareader.net/135-57514-18/fairy-tail/chapter-201.html

As we have seen from the hand:
http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/225/19
and cana crying in the above spoilers thay are very similar if not identical to the premonition charle had right?

while this;
http://www.mangareader.net/135-58237...apter-206.html
is almost completely different apart from the fact Natsu is crying

wow Natsu will be crying more than once in an arc thats surprising :O

Makarov dieing is a possibility but i doubt it i think he'd probably be at least handicapped and will retire
[hr]
also I think it actually is mavis sending Cana a message from this;
http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/231/23
'Mavis' light illuminates the unknown fate...'
still if she wasn't talking to him that light might have showed her something extremely scary from her expression

I have zero faith in makarov living.

1st. He has already called for his grandson luxus which would be a waste otherwise.

2nd. He already was near death and was saved during the luxus rebellion arc.

3rd. Rave master had alot of deaths while fairy tail has zero so far. Actually they brought lisanna back to life.

IMO, I don't think Marakov will die in this arc. They already had a chance to kill him once in this arc but they didn't. I hope though after this arc he decides to retire and make the guild master Gildartz. In the future though I do see him dead because there is a lot of foreshadowing of his death in the series.

i agree (well evryone will someday die) someone will probably get as badly hurt but killing makarov after healing him :/ idk doesnt seem right
he will retire but Laxus becoming master is not something i think will happen NOW later yes but now he lacks experience and his grandfather's wisdom which he is traveling to achieve he will come back but yeah Gildartz seems a better option the rest are too young

Well makarov hasn't been healed yet wendys magic wasn't working on him. Makarov is in pretty bad shape right now. I am certain that luxus will be the next leader. I think he will lead with mira though.

it was natsu she couldnt heal because of the black scarf however wendy was oo weak i think to heal him too so he might not survive but why let him live so far? he might have an imp last message maybe

Mira and laxus leading? thats a thought that could work
still they are way young an inexperienced so Gildartz seemsstill the better option

Well I figured he was gonna stick around to say goodbye to luxus and then luxus goes insane and takes down hades. I mean bluenote is pretty much saved for gildartz if he returns. Natsu and company will probably save the injured from rusty rose. Erza has that guy.

Gildartz doesn't seem like the type of guy that would want to lead though. He seems like the adventure going type.

I never thought of it like that but idk. I don't think Luxus could really take down Hades. That dude is a beast and if Makarov can't take him down, I don't think Luxus can do it either. I think LLL will find a way to beat Rustyrose. I'm not sure about the Gildartz vs Bluenote thing...I hope that happens.

she didnt have one her before she changed so plus the tattoo is on the arm she used to grab the light or whatnot ^^

Laxus taking down hades whose an animal i dont see that happening plus he felt something yes but how will he get to Ft island in time?
Gildartz vs Bluenote is more probable althogh i dont see how he'll get the sos message or whatnot
i wonder how long will this arc last

I doubt Makarov will die, if Hades wanted to kill him he would have and there was really no better time for him to die at that point.

it'd be funny if they teased makarovs death to make you think it happened, then healed him just to make him die a little later to surprise us.

Yep why waste that opportunity and let him live? and to say the truth Gildartz is kind of a guy i see travelling a lot so he would be a good master option but in the end no onw but Makarov is yet fit to take his place, laxus its way to soon for him, maybe though if a bunch of the older one took over together still makarov is and will always be the master in my opinion
but i do get the i will retire now vibe...

Rave Master had alot of deaths????? Really???? I can only think of Sieghart and Haru's dad, and thats it. Haru's dad had no place left in the story anyway. Oh yeah and Reina. But she was an Oracion Seis, they were originally antagonists anyway if they did switch sides. Their deaths were to be expected. Sieghart died close to the end of the series, but that was pretty badass. One of the only things I liked about Rave Master was Sieghart.

There were plenty, oh yes PLENTY of situations where a character should've died but Mashima pulled some horrible stupid device out of his ass to make him end up alive.

How about Griffon Kato getting cut in freaking half and still surviving?? Shuda surviving a fall from a platform in the freaking sky without any explanation that I can recollect??? I remember at least two or three scenarios where Let should've died too. How about that guy with the bandana getting shot in the HEAD? Nope, not dead. Or possibly the dumbest one of all, Musica being swallowed by darkness only for us to find out that he was actually turned into a WEREWOLF. Yeah, a werewolf.

Sorry about the rant....its just that when Mashima tries to kill someone he either does something disappointing and they end up living, or he actually does kill a character only for it to be someone who has no place in the story anymore like Shimon.

And Makarov can't die now, not before the whole Raven Tail story gets explored. So I think Luxus will either temporarily take over while Makarov recovers or maybe he'll just show up to save everyones ass. I doubt Mashima has the balls to kill him yet......
