Interesting to find out that all DS'ers have issues with motion sickness. I am curious as to why Gazelle has had no issues with it in the past...

Kinda another filler chapter, but it was still interesting enough.

Eh.... probably Mashima just screwing around with Gajeel.... Nice transitional chapter, let's see what's up next.

sarutobi_sensei
March 23, 2012, 07:03 AM
So Gazelle didn't have any problems with transportation until now? Could it be that it was after this training that he truly attained Dragon Slayer powers? Maybe Wendy's like this too now.

Hmm, I think that Sting was talking about the FT from the first Generation, even if the FT from 7 years ago didn't really care about what others did and said.

A filler chapter to give FT A's first points making it stand on equal grounds as FT B. But the whole speech was very emotional and well thought, typical of Natsu when talking about his friends :D

Now, I wanna see more fights :D

March 23, 2012, 07:31 AM
Was it evident that Gajeel never had problems with transportation? I never really noticed.

So many mysteries with DSers, their age, motion sickness, etc. Pretty good chapter and a very classic "I don't understand human feelings" quote from Sting.

I hope the battles start next week.

Now that you mention it, it's strange that they didn't get sick on the boat. As far as I know more people get sick on boats than on land vehicles.

Chapter was ok, Raven Tail is getting way too many points, they're on 26 now, so first. I really don't want them to win. But if they do, I hope FT will destroy them (which they'll probably do anyway).

Gravity magic was pretty cool, but apart from that, it's pretty standard. We still don't know what Bacchus' magic actually is, that'll probably come out in the next few chapters, when Erza settles their rivalry (evil laugh).

That's why he said, I didn't have any problems before and then Sting said, so it seems you've really a true Dragon Slayer.

How exactly one becomes a true Dragon Slayer we have no idea. But it seems that Laxus has it as well.

March 23, 2012, 08:50 AM
This chapter made me want to know more about Sting and Rogue, and that is it. It wasn't bad, it was fine but nothing that interesting.
I gotta say I'm starting to like the two, I was indifferent about them before. I guess I wasn't completely persuaded that they're true dragonslayers, trained by real dragons. We still don't know anything about them and how is it possible that they weren't there 7 yrs ago, and now here they are, trained, claiming they've killed the dragons, etc...
Their interest in FT DSs was shown before, but now it seems they know stuff about Fairy Tail as well...

I think Gajeel now truly unlocked his DS powers via training, that's why his motion-sickness was discovered only now... that should also make him monsterly strong, lol, if the Gajeel back from FT vs Phantom was uncomplete XD

And I was surprised that Laxus is included in "real dragonslayers" by the motion-sickness standard O_o

I won't discuss my thoughts here.

Ignoring my complaints about that, the chapter was not that valuable. It was a waste of a competition day. As someone working on Fairy Tail reviews on MH, I think that the chapter was less than worthwhile from that perspective. There's just not a whole lot to review for this chapter. About all that happened can be boiled down very simply: Bacchus is decently strong, all dragonslayers gain the transportation problem, and FT A finally got their first points. Hurrah! What a useful chapter.

Um, the art wasn't even very detailed this chapter and the only character bit to discuss is Sting's thoughts of the old FT and the new FT.

March 23, 2012, 09:08 AM
Not that great of a chapter IMO it is a waste for Bacchus guy to be shown like this well he won but there isn't even a competition to begin... For the dragon slayer I would quote what Happy had said it is like Gajeel is taking all Natsu's traits lol I think it is pretty bad to have all the dragon slayer to have this kind of weakness well maybe it will be explained in future chapters I have faith in Mashima to explain it not like Naruto where all can be achieve without proper explanation etc..

Well I think this tournament will not be finish because there will be an outside force that will ruin the tournament I think it is better this way because we don't even know how strong Gray/Natsu had become.

not a big fan of the ds's now having motion sickness

lazy plot twist imo

still a good chapter

bacchus has an interesting magic

Sumpner
March 23, 2012, 10:35 AM
I am fine with the whole motion sickness thing, I think it works well.

Although it is slightly contradictory, but I have forgiven worse, both in this manga and in others.

Dragonball had lots of plot holes, the only one that doesn’t is One Piece…unless someone proves me otherwise that is.

Like some of the other people have mentioned maybe you only get it at a certain level, but even then Natsu has had it since the beginning and Gajeel is definitely at that level. The way Sting seemed to be aware of it, but neither Gajeel or Wendy have shown signs of it before.

That said, we know next to nothing about the Dragon Slayers, Natsu also seems to be special amongst the DS anyway, so who knows.

I still believe that when Zeref was talking about the end of an age, he was talking about that generation of DS.

I think that this was a good chapter, FT A finally got some points, which is good, still do not think they will win because of the upcoming interruption.

Would have liked to see the DS attacking each other, but still good chapter, not great, but good. Someone said it wasn’t a useful chapter, I disagree, it revealed some info and left me with more questions, that seems like a normal chapter. It could have been just Natsu affected by the motion sickness, but instead we had all the DS which made it more interesting.

We still have a hell of a lot of unanswered questions though…but that’s all part of the fun.

I don't mind. Chapter was funny and I just can't stop loving Mavis. x3

Atobe the king
March 23, 2012, 12:06 PM
I came here first...then read the chapter...so maybe my expectations were so low i didnt mind? There are some interesting (to me)

-Rogue and Sting are made out to be bastards...not just arrogant but cold, the end of this arc should be interesting.
-FT gained crowd support...I'm hoping the course of the matches change and its no longer "herp derp FT got this and e-wuh? we've been cheated? last place again?" and the winner of these events becomes a mystery rather than "well we know ft is gonna be last"
-Natsu still wins even when he loses haha
-Am i to believe gajeel is the most undragon dragon slayer lol? If even laxus is showing dragon slayer weakness. Im also wondering why the boat never bothered any of them...even though i remember it being an issue in the first chapter for natsu.

Uriel
March 23, 2012, 12:25 PM
The whole "Nakama is crap" thing makes me believe that all the DragonSlayers have something really dangerous as a past and something involving Natsu and Zeref changed things. Yes, I deduced this for only that comment. Far fetched I know, but can't stop thinking that there is something weird there. The prophecy of Polluska was not then the travel to Edolas...was something else. Maybe the thing that Makarov revealed to Gildarts.

And I'm enjoying this arc, event chapters like these ones. It's obvious that Mashima left the strong dishes for later.

Actually, do not forget we are being trolled. The King asked for Bacchus versus the one from Fairy Tail A that can transform.

We are gonna get Bacchus versus Elfman.

March 23, 2012, 05:30 PM
hmm my be gajeel finally fit a few of the requirement to be a true dragon slayer,
1st having a cat
2nd being able to use dragon slayer power
3rd still don't know

wendy have the toria spell plus she have not been master full of the sky dragon slayer may be she can float when she is in a transportation or she can cast toria on her self all the time.

zeref dont have a cat yet and he does not want to use his dragon slayer powers

i wonder about laxus mybe you just need to have full control of the dragon slayer magic
it would be cool to have laxus have a cat also my be a female cat for lily lol

Personally, I did not like the motion sickness plot twist, Gazille wasn't affected by it before and thus it shouldn't affect him know. I also thought the motion sickness "gag", which know obviously is supposed to define DS, was a perfect protagonist weakness since it was unique and could easily be used over and over again. Oh, well the decision is mad and I hope we at least get a good and legitimate reason for the weakness and also why it affected Gazille know.

However, what I did like was the drunken man, that character is great and also with him it brings a new seriously dangerous into the battle. I wonder if him being drunk enhances or gets mixed in with his magic in some way, if they are connected at all.

i dont have a problem with it being story relevant

i have a problem with gajeel (who with the whole steel skin thing seemed to be even more accustomed to being a dragon slayer than natsu)
all of a sudden having motion sickness because he is "accustomed" to being a dragon slayer...

its a weak pitch in my opinion, but at the same time i love this story and manga so much that it doesnt matter

Personally, I did not like the motion sickness plot twist, Gazille wasn't affected by it before and thus it shouldn't affect him know.
And when did we see Gajeel riding some vehicle?

From skimming through the chapters:

In Phantom Arc, he was in the MkII Headquarters of his former guild, but that stood still, when Gajeel was shown, and Natsu wasn't affected either then. On the times it was transforming/moving, Gajille wasn't shown.

In Edolas, Gajeel was eating the metal of faust's dragon mecha when it wasn't moving. No motion, no puking. And it looks like the floating island with the lachryma crystal doesn't count as vehicle.

At the beginning of the Tenrou Arc, Gajille was sitting on deck - but he seems to have it hard since there's some metal in front of him, but it doesn't look like it makes his mouth water.... Once they arrived the island, both Natsu and Gajeel were well...

Tenrou Arc, Volume 24, Chapter 203


So it probably gets worse the stronger a DS becomes? And it really has to be a man-made vehicle to make them sick.

Gazelle himself said that he never felt motion sickness before.

Actually if you get pass that page you will find Gajeel standing next to Levy with an evil look. waiting to punch Erza or Natsu.....his face expressions in this photo is for being bored, and like sarutobi_sensi said Gajeel already mentioned he had no problems with it before.

Regular chapter.

I don't know if the drunk guy's magic is really magic, it seems like simply brute strength.
About the motion sickness : could it be that now Windy is affected by that too ?

Interesting enough to see that Sting doesn't have any ability to compensate it. I guess he is also "full damage" type magician, like all other DS, aside Windy.

Gerard would have won this contest with no sweat. Meteor => over.

I don't think this was a bad or boring chapter at all, in my opinion it was pretty good.

It was interesting seeing Gajeel start to gain motion sickness and it looks as though Laxus does too. It just raises more questions about Dragon Slayers, which is a good move on Mashima's part if you ask me. they were mysterious enough but now I want to know more about them and why exactly they experience motion sickness. There has to be something in particular that Gajeel only just did in his training that sets it off.

The only thing I can think of right now is something like: Eating another element.

I don't know if Laxus has tried this, but we know that Natsu did it before he even met Lucy. I recall he tried to eat Laxus' lighting or something haha. That's just about the only thing I can think of that Natsu may have done different to Gajeel so far, maybe Sting, Rogue and Laxus all tried to eat other elements too.

Maybe not something as specific as that, but there has to be something that triggers this!

I also liked that we learn more about Sting's character in this chapter, the fact that he doesn't care about his comrades, which is the polar opposite of Natsu. I wonder if he experienced something that made him feel that way, or if he was just always that heartless..

AluminumTough
March 24, 2012, 03:55 PM
I think he created this motion sickness amongst dragonslayers as an afterthought. However, I'm sure he came up for an explanation as to why Gajeel didn't have it before but has it now, which will hopefully tie the story together a little more. I've defiantly been wondering why they couldn't get through the ruin with the age restriction (Gajeel and Natsu).

frozen18ice
March 24, 2012, 07:19 PM
i wonder is sting is like this because of the fact that he ate his dragon, i wonder how many dragons are out there really, igneel, grandine, metalicana, arconologia, so far there is natsu, wendy, gajeel, laxus, sting, rouge, zeref, cobracobra we know that the 1st generation ds are natsu, wendy, gajeel, zeref. lacrimal type is laxus, cobracobra both types/eaten dragon sting, rouge
can a dragon lacrimal be produced? it is possible that there could be 14 dragonslayer magic available in the world why is this ebolas dragons slayer counter part could have been killed or changed to lacrimal form to be implanted or the real dragons but we are not even sure that there are only 7 original dragons but it just sounds good with the whole 777 thing that mashima does.

i wonder what kind of dragon slayer is sting and rouge or if rouge is really zeref with longer hair, if also arconologia is anybodies parent other than zeref or is his dragon someone else

First I agree with majority of guys here the motion sickness is really annoyed the hell out of me. Mashima better explain this later. And second, throwing Sting in this part of game was really a waste. But I am glad to see Natsu playing this wasteful game. He had too many important screen time. At least I am happy Mashima didn't bring this nakama-spirit at the climax of the arc. (and worst thing, they were sobbing for that wtf)

I'm not surprised they were sobbing, the guild hadn't seen Natsu and his typical "I will fight for my Nakama" act for 7 years. Of course they'd get somewhat emotional after a long time like that.

Plus if Sting wasn't in that round then we wouldn't know all "true Dragon Slayers" suffer from motion sickness. And do you really want to see Sabertooth winning every round? It was good they got no points, it gives Fairy Tail a little bit more of a chance to catch up.

March 25, 2012, 09:11 AM
After the contest of the second day we have this situations:
Raven Tail: 26 points (18+8).
Sabertooth: 20 points (20+0).
Lamia Scale: 20 points (16+4).
Blue Pegasus: 17 points (14+3).
Quatro Cerberus: 12 points (2+10).
Mermaid Hell: 9 points (3+6).
Fairy Tail A: 2 points (0+2).
Fairy Tail B: 2 points (1 +1).

Fairy Tail lose some points, their margin from the one who have take the seventh and eight place increase a little, while the difference between the second place and the sixth decrease.

At the same time thanks to the second place Raven Tail take the leadership of the tournament.
Anyways I believe that in the fifth day, or perhaps even in fourth day they will began to lose some battles, and perhaps also some contest (for the contest I hope that will not be when will participate Flare).

About the dragonslayer and Natsu’s speech:
I don’t like that all the dragonslayer have motion sickness, I think that would be better if only Natsu had it.
Anyways Gazille before of this chapter have not the motion sickness, infact he himself say this, so this is really strange.

But even if is strange I believe that the author has a good excuse for this (even if perhaps we will know it only after several chapter).
Anyways I don’t think that this motion sicknes in only for joke, for fun, perhaps this could be important to the plot, just as could be the fact that neither Gazille or Natsu could passed the rune in the Fairy Tail civil war.

From what says Sting seem that after the training of 3 months Gazille became a true dragonslayer, that before of it he was not a true dragonslayer yet, he missed something (also if I have not any idea of what this is).
Wendy seem fine, so perhaps even her is not a true dragonslayer, also if anyways she has Triora.

I really like Natsu speech (also if I would prefer Gazille), and in fact I thought that was strange that they would participate to the contest, also because they had not all this interesting in to be the strongest guild just said Sting here.
But perhaps because their position was not in discussion, except perhaps against Phantom Lord.

Anyways I liked that while Natsu say it we will see the reaction of the others Fairy Tail mages, the one who participate on the contest but more important those that did not participate, the one who did not lose the 7 years.

And then seem that after Natsu’s speech seem that the audience has begun to change their opinion about Fairy Tail, even if a little Fairy Tail gained some fans (I believe that at the end of the tournemals almost all the audience will be by their side).

I also think that is not so bad Sting’s reaction, because even he don’t fight for his nakama, even if he does not to want to became strongest for them this not means that he would betray them.
In fact I believe that he is like Azuma, he fight for himelf, but he will not betray or abandon his nakama like the member of the dark guild that he defeat in his introduction or like Urtear when she betrayed Hades.

Anyways after this chapter I have changed my idea about the battles (I will explain it in another post).

Bacchus:
Anyways I have something to say about Bacchus.
I thoughyt that more alcohol he would have drunk more stronger he would become, but after this page http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/276/6 I have changed my thought.

Anyways I believe that he will fight in the battles against Elfman, and he would not have win, he would have lose or at least the battles would end with a draw.
I believed in fact Natsu would have took the last place, for this reason I believed that would be unlikely that even after the second day Fairy Tail team A would have still 0 points.

To tell the truth I still believe that this will be the result, in fact I don’t think that there will be a great difference between 0 points and 2 points.

I also thought (I wrote it in the thread of chapter 275) that Bacchus could have participate to the contest, because this could became an excuse for the result of the battles, if he would have lose or the match would be end with a draw.
In fact I thought that after the contest he could be tired, the power that he could have receive by the alcohol could be vanished.

But as I said after the frame of page 6 that I posted above I think that could be the opposite.
Ironically in fact Bacchus could lose because the alcohol that drunk against Cana could be not worn off.
In the truth at the end he seem fine so I don’t think that this will be the case, and to tell the truth I would prefer if Elfman would win or to tie with his own efferot.

Risley:
I really like Risley power.
His magic is named “Gravity transformation”.
I believe that it’s similar to that of Kilo Kilo fruit that in One Piece ate Miss Valentine, she can change her weight.

The difference is that Risley change even her body shape, her appearance while Miss Valentine appearance did not changed.
If it so perhaps she could became even slimmer that her original form http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/276/9 (she is sexy even if I don’t like her hairstyle).

At the beginning I have not understand how she was able to do run in this way http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/276/6.
But after sometimes I think that I have understood.
I believe in fact that she put her weight on her foot, it’s as if she put some glue under her feet.

About the next chaper:
I have got an idea about the next chapter title.
I believe that has something to do with the woman in Sabertooth.
In fact I believe that her magic is similar to that of Erza, in fact even if perhaps there will be some differeces I think that she uses requip magic.

Hmm pretty average chapter IMO !

I am still waiting to see amazing things happening and to see FT finally getting recognition (well they made the 1st step in this chapter and people started acknowledge them but they have a long way to go ).
I didn't like that Mashima put this task exactly to Natsu :darn . It's like he wanna test his character and make them look miserable at 1st but still i wanna see improvements . If even Natsu only got 2 points then what should we expect from the rest -_-;
As things are progressing and from that vision Charle had i'm thinking that we won't have a chance to see this tournament till the end . I think someone will stop it or it will be stopped after the palace gets destroyed ....

Chapter was sort of boring but it was there were some interesting revelations in this chapter. I really want to know what kind of magic Bacchus uses. It seems like Kurohebi (the Raven Tail dude) might have a magic ability that has something to do with snakes. His name literally means black snake.

Edelheld
March 25, 2012, 05:00 PM
Well, if Bacchus turns alcohol into strength and agility then that's not something unheard of. With the right amount of booze even I can do that kind of magic =)
Kurohebi looks awesome, but Flare did too and got a fail =(
After first day of tournament many people dismissed Pegasus, Mermaid and Cerberus as cannon fodder. It's good to see that they also get some highlights.

It was a decent chapter overall. I liked Natsu's speech and the humor but that was it. Glad the competition is over with, now we can get on to battles. Erza or Elfman or will someone that already went go again?

Firstly I am fed up with this whole nakama power-up thing. But i know I have to bear it because Mashima will bring this in every arc for sure, so I'll just have to ignore it. But then on this chapter when they were sobbing after hearing the speech, I mean come on it's not like someone dies. Few tears are acceptable but sobbing.. was that supposed to be gag scene or emotional scene I don't know.

As for Sting, that was precisely why I want him to be available later in more challenging game. Beating those two in a minor child-play game wouldn't be fun. Giving them a proper beating in a real action packed game like battle royal would make a great match and bring satisfaction to the readers. Also Sting didn't need to particapte in this game to reveal DS weakness. But I feel you man. You must be broken hearted by these 3 loses in a row aren't you:cheez

Firstly I am fed up with this whole nakama power-up thing. But i know I have to bear it because Mashima will bring this in every arc for sure, so I'll just have to ignore it. But then on this chapter when they were sobbing after hearing the speech, I mean come on it's not like someone dies. Few tears are acceptable but sobbing.. was that supposed to be gag scene or emotional scene I don't know.

As for Sting, that was precisely why I want him to be available later in more challenging game. Beating those two in a minor child-play game wouldn't be fun.

I know what you mean, the whole Nakama Power up thing does get tiresome. It's overused too much, but I didn't think it was too bad in this case because it didn't so much as give him a power up, more like for the sake of doing it for his friends it gave him the drive and determination to battle on. Which I think is just like Natsu's character, so it didn't bother me so much this time, but if however he somehow got rid of his motion sickness weakness temporarily because of it, then that would of peeved me off a little haha :)

And I see what you're saying, but then the Fairy Tail members did miss them over 7 years as if they were dead, some probably believed they were too. So I think seeing Natsu so determined and just like he was after years of them losing may have drove them to tears of happiness. I'm also hoping that them seeing Natsu like this again will also give them the will to become stronger again.

But don't worry about Sting, I have a feeling we will see a battle royal between him and Natsu in the battle rounds. Maybe not so soon but a bit later on and hopefully Natsu wins after a hard long battle with his OWN new found strength instead of some kind of power up. and that'as true he didn't need to participate to show it, but I think it was better to actually see with our own eyes how Sting suffers form motion sickness too, it would have been a little more boring if it were just Natsu and Gajeel and then Sting, Rogue and Laxus were in the crowd like "We get that too", well that's only in my opinion anyway :)

And Yes! I can't lie it's horrible having to see Fairy Tail lose by so much, especially since we've been used to them begin a winning Guild since the beginning of the Manga haha, especially with Jellal's and Lucy's lose! Although I have to admit Jellal's battle had me in tears at the end, of laughter that is haha :)

I think this competition only serves as a minor part of the arc. The major part, which is something related to charle's premonition would be more epic that this. We could careless about the result of the tournament even if FT1 and FT2 would end up at the bottom of the league I don't care. I wouldn't be surprised if Mashima let Laxus lose in a lamer way than Gerard

Hey guys!
Just wanted to let you know that I finally started Fairy Tail last week and that I'm now up-to-date with that manga!

I enjoyed it a lot!
So, you'll probably see me around here from now on too.


I hope we'll see the competition to the last day.
The S-Class exam was cut short before the end, so it would be nice if we could see all of this competition before the evil guys do their stuff...

This is what I'm really worried about. I have this scenario in my head that he will go with "Ivan removing the Lacrima inside Laxus body while he's fighting Orga from Sabertooth", since Ivan said he can remove it, but that will be lame again. I hope to see more from Laxus fighting ...he was only giving like 3 pages of fighting against HADES :-_-

I was expecting a fight between Bacchus and Erza/Elfman but the chapter was completely dedicated to the chariot race. I think this chapter was used to show us how strong Bacchus is even without alchohol. But it was a let down since the fight did not happen.

laxus doesnt seem like they type to lose easily , he would probably rather take the whole stadium down and kill the spectators in the process , than lose

Hey guys, since I'm new on the fairy tail forum, I don't know when to expect spoilers and manga release.
When are we usually getting spoilers for Fairy Tail?

as long as mangastream releases the chapter we get the scan before spoilers, lately it has been released early friday, but it used to always be very early saturday. I can't say what specific time friday but keep your eyes open on fridays when you wake up in the morning.
