oh Raven Tail entrance...

guy with the mask could it be Ivan ?

I don't think he will be participating tho, since masters not allowed to be involved in the tournament, but a face to face meeting with Makarov will be interesting ^_^

That girl look like a "wierdo" version of Erza LOL

Mashila is pulling the unexpected chapter after chapter nowadays. Nice one.

Raven Tail is here. Laxus's team didn't come back yet.

Which leads me to suspect that Laxus is the amored and masked guy in the Raven Tail's team, for some reason, against his will I guess. His father planned something for him for a long time after all. It would be weird that nothing happened since. Besides the masked guy has light hair.

For the first Time i really fell out of my chair after reading a page. The arrival of Mavis as a cute little Girl really brought me down... Didn't see this one coming...

Lot of fanservice though with Mermaid Heel and the cute little sister within Lamia Scale. Not that it bothers me or something.

Chapter was really enjoyable and very very funny.

Why do i get the feeling, Mavis will fight along the other Fairy Tail members against the bad guys in this arc?

January 20, 2012, 12:56 PM
Nice chapter. I wanna learn who's that mysterious team. One is Sabertooth for sure.
Could that masked guy from Raven Tail be Gajeel?

Ero-Sanji
January 20, 2012, 01:15 PM
I don't know about the masked man, but I don't think it's Gajeel nor Laxus. I have a hard time seeing Gajeel coming back to RT, even stranger would be for Ivan to accept him after all these years. Laxus not being available foreshadows Ivan as "surviving" this arc. It did surprise though that RT didn't come first or second... Oh, also I smell a fake dragon slayer amongst the RT five, he seem to be a mix of Midnight and Cobra.

I sincerely hope that the last uncovered guild isn't Tartaros, those guys should have their own arc as the other two of the B'alam alliance.

EDIT: Is Mashima seriously bringing another psychotic girl into the mix? Hasn't he had one mentaly disturbed female or someone who have become one in every arc, now?

hehe,,,,I came here to post this idea....ahhh well...I totally agree with you .

I'm not sure why, but I think the new guild is

1-Freed
2-Bixlow
3-Evergreen
4-Gajeel
5-Lily/MiraJane

They thought if we made 2 teams more chance for us to win this shit..not sure tho....or found out something about this event...or trying to save laxus form something..it's confusing Q_Q

But 80 % Laxus is the masked mage.

McNuss
January 20, 2012, 02:13 PM
The masked guy is most likely someone we already know. Why else need a mask? For fashion?

As he's part if Raven Tail, it is even more likely that it is someone we already know who has a connection with Raven Tail. There are three people besides Makarov who have such a connection:

- Laxus: Ivan's (pls not Ewan, Makarov is "Russian" it makes more sense that his Son has a Russian name too) son, however he was so happy to be back with FT, him joining his father voluntary would make sense. He could be brainwashed however. RT beeing allowed as a normal guild hints at some manipulatory powers within this guild. Also he is a tall guy who likes wearing fur mantles.

- Gildarts: Ivans Rival, as hinted by his character sheet. Same as with Luxus, the only reason he could be there would mean he was brainwashed. Hes also tall.

- Gajeel: He worked as a double agent for FT. He could be back to his spying job. As Makarov did not know RT is going to appear, this would mean he's acting on his own. The attack on Wendy could have been a test for him to prove his loyalty. We all know that Gajeel has no problems taking such extreme methods. Or he's brainwashed.

The next chapter's title however made me think that Fairy Tail is going to have a second team. Fairy Tail has been named special and punks in the past. As Gajeel, Lilly, Team Laxus,
and apparently Mirajane and Cana are still missing, they could have formed a second team under a wrong name.

January 20, 2012, 02:17 PM
@Ifrit:

I also think that the mysterious team is indeed fairy tail's new team. Raijin Tribe + Gajeel. I think we shall believe the masked one to be laxus - but maybe iwan has a second son? Some sort of twin brother to laxus.. or well. 7 years have passed. Maybe lwan had another son he hid from makarov.

Well i guess we will see Blue Pegasus, Quatro Cerberos, Mermaid Girls Guild and Lamia Scale will lose quite quickly. Erza defeating yura will be her first step to become one of the 10 wizard saints.

Erza defeating yura will be her first step to become one of the 10 wizard saints.I agree with Quatro Cerberus, Mermaid Girls and Blue Pegasus. Im not sure with Lami Scale however. Jura is strong, Lyon and Grays Rivalry has become a huge plot element, and there's a new girl to showcase.

I think, from now on each chapter will be one of the tournaments rounds, until cerberus, mermaids and pegasus are out. From then on it will take more than one chapter.

January 20, 2012, 03:12 PM
Liked the chapter.:)

I really enjoyed it, even though it had decent emount of fanservice.:) Hope we'll see the end of Guild's introduction in the enxt chapter and finally getting to the begining of the Tournament.:)

It's going to be interesting, cause we'll see other strong members who made Sabertooth the strongest Guild in Fiore. And there is a good posibility that another Guild will contain some mages we already know, but I think they aren't FT mages. Maybe some from ex-dark guilds like Raven Tail.

Talking about Raven Tail... they really look powerful and Mavis felt evil presense from them, so I really see they should be conne3cted with all this event and they might be even connected with higher-ups among Magic Council or higher-ups of the Kingdom itself and have some evil agenda apart of destroying Fairy Tail.

About the masked man... I don't think he is Luxus (even though the posibility is quite high, but I think he is too high for Luxus)). I hope he is another mage and supposedly the most powerful after Ivan in the Guild.
The thing I want to understand if the guy in the right corner of RT formation here is someone we know:
http://mangastream.com/read/fairy_tail/23344827/17
He actually looks like they guy from Oracion Seis who was called Midnight.

January 20, 2012, 03:23 PM
im with everybody the first thing that came out of my mind is that fairy tale got a second team to be in the games, reason why they got boo from crowd, mybe just used a different name and the name special punks b team is a great indication that it might as well be bilgow, evergreen, mirajane, cana, freid, laxus, gajeel one of these five people could possible be them and my be it might be possible that mask man be a double agent or somebody that is being controlled or just gajeel he did spy for raven tail and part of the reason why he trained by himself.

sarutobi_sensei
January 20, 2012, 03:37 PM
Sooo, the ones who attacked Wendy were Raven Tail. Hmm, stealing her Magical power, cowards. Poor baby girl.

Lol @ Mavis being there aswell xD Haha that was indeed funny.

So 2 more teams need to be revealed, Sabertooth and maybe it really will be Raijinshu + Gajeel xD That would be epic really :D

Raven Tail has become legal, see, that had to be it. Though, the council approving them is odd enough.

---------- Post added at 08:37 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:34 PM ----------

It's also interesting that Quatro Cerberus is one of the strongest teams. I never thought that master would have a powerful guild xD

Who was the master of Mermaid Girls?

I am calling Edo FT team! Without Mystogan of course, since he would be locked right away. Imagine the fan service we would get seing FT core members a lot older.

Edo FT team would be indeed "special", no normal magic + kinda punks, going on with magic tools instead of magic. Plan B, since its another sort of chance to win for FT ^_^

I think its a matter of perception over there..but moving on.

I like all the guilds introduced but I'm sure the cerebus will be ...fodder..because they look like fodders.
Ivan's team looks good and hyped up like with all ft villains. Tbh mavis joining in is kindda ridiculous, felt like
she's there for fanservice.
Can't wait to see sting and raven's guild (their other party members) and the other one who might just be the first one
that made it.

And god, the girls are in skimpy clothes again. Did natsu really have to change his outfit? I mean, I liked that one alot.

January 20, 2012, 05:56 PM
Ok, I didn't expect the Wendy case to be solved that soon already. :blink It's a bit surprising but ok, with this rivalry with Raven Tail it could turn out to be interesting. Although I thought that the one clinch with the two other dragon slayer who killed their mother and made Natsu rage would have been enough for this arc. I'm wondering which rivalry is going to be the dominant one.

If the other unknown guild is going to be the third one Natsu is raging about it could turn out sort of complicated, so I do not hope so.

Ehm, and Mavis appearance was very odd, I'm not sure what to think about it yet. :notrust

I don't think FT will have a 2nd team. I mean how is that even possible unless the new guild was recognized within the 3 months of training.

Looking forward to Sabertooth and Punk B team making an appearance next week and getting the tournament started.

I can imagine it already having to do with transportation so Natsu will be useless lol.

I'm probably beating a dead horse with a bamboo, but why is it so hard for translators/scanlators to decide on using one name rather than having a squillion different spelling for the same people. Wrrryyyyy? Ewan takes the cake, how do you butcher a simple name like Ivan... o_O

Their speed translator apparently can't be bothered to spend any time checking the Fairy Tail wikia for character names. Which would still leave them using Iwan as the first instance of Ivan's name was translated as that in the manga, which is what the wikia goes by, though the latest volume corrects it to Ivan. Given what I know of how Fairy Tail official name translations work, Iwan probably was the official translation until enough time had passed to get a message through the Kodansha bureaucracy to Mashima that "The name you want is 'Ivan'" by which point it was too late to fix for the first volume it appeared in. Still, "Ewan" is just silly, the characters used for his name are 'iwan', and plugging that into any japanese name translator should net you Ivan.

Dang Mashima!

That panel is not supposed to be on a manga for children.

As for the masked man he is probably Laxus if Punk Team B doesn't end up being him and other FT members.

In my opinion brainwashing is out of fashion, it has already been used on Juvia and people using talking no jutsu on Laxus again won't feel good.

On the other hand, it could be that Raven Tail ambushed Laxus and took the Raijinshu hostage to force him against Makarov.

That would be far more epic because Laxus would be outright forced to fight his friends for the sake of his even closer friends without being able to reveal why he is doing it.

Think you're right on the mark here, he's testing or pushing the limits, maybe to as far as he can go, maybe to try change shounens to be allowed to go to such naughty heights :cheez

The masked man is extremely unlikely Luxus, as he spoke to them, therefore they would notice his voice right away..

You know, Mashima is doing well. He released a string of decent chapters, nothing too terrible in them or at least there weren't really faults that you couldn't get past(other than the BS dragon raising from Sabertooth), and there was nothing incredibly great in them either. They were pretty solid chapters for a base to build an arc on. But I must admit, this chapter in particular was pretty darn good. Nothing I could find was displeasing, in fact it was a better than good chapter.

I am knocking on wood here because we have seen Mashima in the past has produced good chapters at the start of an arc which gets us all hyped up, but his trouble is the long haul. He hasn't been able to stay consistent and keep the level high for an entire arc and has gone downhill as the tail ends of arcs roll around. I am hoping Mashima has improved and can keep this up, but I am fearful of one thing. And that is the sheer amount of characters in this arc.

I honestly think it is just too many. How will Mashima juggle and balance not only all the Fairy Tail mages competing in the tournament, but the individual members of the other "named" guilds? Aside from the possible "fodder" guilds he just introduced he has to give screen time to Raven Tail, Sabertooth, and this mysterious yet to be revealed dark guild. Along with Pegasus and Lamia Scale and how they are defeated.

Frankly it is a ton of characters, and you just know Fairy Tail will have to get their due. They will have to get Raven Tail back for what they did to Wendy, they will have to face Sabertooth due to the Dragon Slayers, and they will have to figure out what the heck is up with the unnamed guild and what makes Gerard and co. along with Mavis skeptical about the dark aura they put off.

I am remaining hopeful since it's a tournament arc and Mashima should be able to cut down on the guilds pretty easily.

Jorge D. Dragon

There is one posibility how Luxus might have been made a member of Raven Tail (though I hope it's not him).
When Raven Tail main members were shown with Ivan several chapters ago, I van was shown with something like a little paper puppet in his hand... So maybe his magic is related to puppeting? That's a way he might make someone his puppet.

Also about FT's names... I think it's quite normal that names are somewhat written a bit strange. It's the same with Erza, cause normally this name should be Elza. Or Gelall, whose name should obviously be Gerard (don't know the right spelling in french).

Lectro Volpi
January 21, 2012, 03:12 AM
This is the part I love the most of Fairy Tail: the beginning where everything looks great... I will enjoy...

There is no way Lamia Scale will lose! they have Madoka on the team! damn! (I was searching if no one did the joke and I am glad I took it)

So It was correct the fact that Raven Tail legalized but it will be too obvious if they were the ones Gerard spoke about.

"That is the cat girl from Heaven island" Wow... you were fast!

I fan for Mavis... damn me.

I don't think so. It was mentioned that for the first time they are participating right, so this tournament been running for 7 years now. Unless Gerard n co. started to feel this weird evil I don't know what they wanna call it recently then you might be right about this one.

most likely it will be what you said. Maybe controlling the Lachrima inside Luxus body. But no way Laxus would turn against Fairy Tail.

Hmm, that masked man could be Laxus's clone or something. Though the coat is the only indication we have right now.

Freid
January 21, 2012, 12:15 PM
I didn't say that they travelled to Earthland during the 7 years fairy tail were absent. People from Edolas no longer being able to travel to Earthland only means that it's possible that this guild could have been around before the Edolas arc, like Porlyusica. Knowing how coincidentally other Edolas characters have wound up over in Earthland, I can see the possibility of an entire guild doing the same. Especially with Mashima recently revealing Porlysica is from Edolas, it doesn't seem as though he wants to completely forget about it. Still, I personally don't want the manga to focus on Edolas again, but this guild being from there wouldn't necessarily mean that.

I vote for new guild to be the former baddies we have seen in previous arcs. Hope there will be that dude from Eisenwald.
I doubt that that girl with sexy lingerie and shroud from mermaids is kitty-girl from tower of heaven arc as someone said 'cos she won't split up with her bros as female only guild would suggests =) Though those 3 can be missing part of Sabretooth's 5

Well there is also the possibility that Marakov has two grand children, maybe not same age.

and some thoughts on the arc on that..

1 Brother takes the side of Ivan
1 Brother takes the side of Marakov

Ivan and Marakov match up. (Somehow despite they're not allowed in tournament, perhaps afterwards or inbetween matches).
Brother match up.
Natsu and the 2 dragon slayers match. (Pretty unsure how I want to predict this match, because it smells like Mashima will make it epic).

One thing that has been bugging since the last chapter is... where is Mira?

Didn't she train with Lisanna and Elfman?

They have not addressed her or even shown her since they came back...

LoS
January 22, 2012, 12:07 AM
Dunno about that, I think Luxus needs to face his father, Ivan. We need to see how much Luxus has grown, does he still hold his father dear in his heart. Remember he wanted to run away to his father, and we all remember Ivan doesn't care one bit about Luxus, but rather the lachrima inside of Luxus so that he can sell it off.

Kinda late but i also enjoyed the chapter :)
Hmm those Raven Tail guys look strong and it's obvious their main target is crushing Fairy Tail. I'm so pissed they did that to Wendy , stealing her magical power that's really cheap and for that in her place we have Elfman. I personally don't like Elfman, his only good point is his brute force overall he doesn't have any other good point about him.
His weak point is that he doesn't think much when he fights that's why i fear for the outcome of this tournament. I just hope he lasts till Wendy recovers ;) i'm not asking too much i think :)

How was that off-topic though? I'm not trying to be rude or anything, just wondering..
I agree I could have toned the part with Mashima down a bit in this thread, but the other parts was highly on-topic as how I see it.
The entire arc, so far, circles around this tournament, therefore every discussion about the tournament would be on-topic if only a little related to the current / next chapter, right?
Also the discussion about power scale could provide information and also a reason for why we'll keep seeing old characters in this arc, for example, what guild or members of a guild hold the most absurd power scale battle thus far? Could it be that yet unknown team or guild? That's how I see power scale discussion being on-topic, it can in theory provide information on who that guild will be, and also about the current chapter.
In an interview we were told a lot of old characters will return, this also makes it on-topic imho, as the likelyhood of this still unknown guild might be someone we know, and es earlier mentioned, looking back on power scale battles, we might predict who they are, and what will come next chapter, a prediction.

So when this chapters theme was to show new and old characters, discussing the power scale issue might give us clues of the old characters still to be shown, and likely, next chapter. This would be on-topic?

Again, not trying to be rude or anything, but a bit put off no less.
I'd like to predict what comes next chapter, but without a foundation discussion (power scale), how can we make a prediction that isn't way out there?
We only got a limited amount of member space left in the tournament, as the spot will be 5 mages (1 guild), so the most absurd power scale battle in the past, might be them.
My bad if I repeated my self, trying to make sure this is not misunderstood.

Friendly regards, Cez

Think this arc is to repair the power scale in the manga, while it's unhealthy to think too much in power scales, FT has often been seen as always winning through "love & friendship".. which is one of the mangas weaknesses in terms of realism, so I wouldn't be surpriced if this is what Mashima is attempting, his a young writer isn't he?

So including all the old characters Mashima can justify the past manga events, if he plays this right.
Also it would be perfect conditions to set up the basic grounds for a new major, perhaps final arc, who knows, something BIG really seems to come after this arc, or it'll cut midway into a final part of the arc.
is very off-topic. And this discussion is about this and the next chapters, another thread to discuss and keep the power level talk[which is universal and doesn't only relate to the current plot] in one place would be appreciated, even if it's the Hangout thread. How about a new topic?

I like the idea of a ex-Edolas guild, maybe a good version of some past enemies, but I would be glad with completely new characters too.

edit: They just introduced the third team and you are talking about the pricipal stuff like Mashima, realism, win through love&friendship and the last arc. Why put the power talk in here, where it will be archieved in forgotten instead of giving it it's own attention in another thread that wont vanish within a week of two? The key reason for the moving was the talk about Maschima, you will have to accept that, it's not my decision how you will handle the rest. Everything is Imo as always.

It's VERY on-topic, combine the interview with the still unknown guild that will be revealed next chapter, how can you say it's off-topic?
Power scale discussion is a tool to find out who exactly that guild might be, a theoretical tool no less, however, everything here is theoretical.

This thread is all about predictions, is it not?

My theory for the next chapters:
I guess that the missing guild is a Fairy Tail B team (my guesses:Luxus, Fried, Mira, Cana and Juvia)
It is a pure fighting tournament. There are always two guilds against each other. It begins with the quarterfinals.
My guesses for the battles:

Quarterfinals:
Fairy Tail vs Lamia Scale /Winner: Fairy Tail
Sabertooth vs Quatro Cerberus /Winner: Sabertooth
Raven Tail vs Blue Pegasus /Winner: Raven Tail
Mermaid Heel vs New Guild (Fairy Tail B Team) /Winner: New Guild

Semifinals:
Sabertooth vs New Guild /Winner: Sabertooth
Fairy Tail vs Raven Tail

And I think that something will happen during the Fairy Tail vs Raven Tail battle and the tournament will be cancel.

Sorry, but I doubt this is likely (although it would be cool).

Next chapter will probably involve individual character introductions of the final two guilds.
Also, a thing about last chapter, on this page http://mangastream.com/read/fairy_tail/23344827/18 the guy in the second panel down on the left, he appears to be saying "Did they say dark guild?" and looks like he's twirling his left hand. What the hell is he doing with his right hand up some girl's shirt?!

Anyway, time to get serious. I bet FT will win this tournament, or at least beat up a bunch of baddies and come close to first, because they need jobs.

I'd like to see some of the aged (post-timeskip) characters join the fight now. Maybe keep Natsu and co out of the first half by way of the tournament.

Also, it's possible that Laxus and Gajeel have been captured by Raven tail. Laxus for his lacrima, and Gajeel because he was found out (Ivan dreyar seems pretty smart, so I figure he knows about Gajeel now). Hmm, I went a bit haywire with the speculation there, ah well.

Maybe Raven tail will escape the ultimate fairy tail friendship beatdown for this arc, and the other evil will cop it instead, who knows.

I wouldn't be surprised if Raven Tail is behind this whole dark magic from the magic games phenomena.

Looking forward to the next chapter:D

It's been mentioned. My guess is that the "girl" is supposed to be a hand puppet, seeing as by the placement, he doesn't just have his hand under her shirt, but has his arm in her chest.

Possible, but keep in mind this is apparently the first time Raven Tail's entered the tournament.

I don't know why, and maybe it's just me, but I would LOVE it if one of the 2 remaining teams ends up being Edolas's own fairy tail. It has been 7 years since they whole edolas thing so maybe somehow they got transported to this world. I just think it would be awesome to see the other fairy tail whoop some ass and even somehow win at the event :amuse

The thing is, the discussion is only valid now, as soon we get next chapter it's outdated, as we'll know who the second guild will be. This is also why we got these threads, for short term discussions, which is exactly the point of them instead of many small short term threads dieing out fast due to be outdated. This is fact, and not opinion.
The absurd power scale has been discussed many times, but currently is a great time for Mashima to fix it, given the current circumstances, tournament with old characters etc. etc.
If his purpose is to balance the manga a bit more, and thus avoid the bashing of unreal feeling towards it, then there is a high possibility you can predict what guild might be the 2nd.

This is why it's on-topic, assuming Mashima is holding to his words from that interview.

So the 2nd yet to be revealed guild is;
- A known Guild and fought Fairy Tail once
- A new Guild and unknown members.
- A known Guild with unknown members...
- A new Guild with known members...
etc. etc.

So, here is where the "imo" is ;)
Which of these would you think is likely? or one not listed?

What strikes me with this cliffhanger is that there is something special about this 2nd yet to be revealed guild, for all we know, it could be another dark guild been registered, and in that case, possibly someone fairy tail once fought.

Say someone predicts this outcome, it means that power scale discussions becomes on-topic, as which of the guilds Fairy Tail fought, was the most unrealistic? Possibly a candidate of the unknown "2nd" Guild.

So, yes, a lot is "imo" here, but you can't say it's "imo" on-topic / off-topic.
It clearly has relations to both current and next chapter, and it'd be a waste to make a new thread for it when it's old after next release.

Anyway, anyone has suggestions for this 2nd guild, who they might be? known or unknown guild/mages?

Doubt it, but it would rock hard !
But I too would love to see them again :p
Sadly though, I think it would ruin the tournament if they turned out to be one of the yet to be revealed guilds.. Epic for comic releaf though :)

If Mystogan was leading, I would be all for this idea (sure, he's not actually in Edolas FT, but earthland don't know that)

Also, Krono, it's not really relevant whether Raven tail only got into the tournament this year, as a matter of fact, it could all have been a plan to get back at Fairy tail.

We did see Ivan saying that he's "waited patiently and quietly", so, yeah, he somehow knew that they'd survived the Tenrou island incident. It doesn't really matter if they hadn't been in the tournament for previous years, since he could have been setting up for the year Fairy tail would come back (in full form, that is). Don't know about the dark force, might be the Raven Tail mages presence itself, who knows, maybe they have taken down the castle, that castle looks damn ominous.

Also, sorry for bringing up the weird guy again, so many comments, tl;dr and all that.
