Thanks for the early spoilers.
Well, the chapter seems to be a conventional Gray-asspull. It's not that I don't like Gray, it's just that he pulls his victories against the characters who he can't beat under any circumstanses. This guy with Memory Make was just broken, so how come Gray accidentally became from useless against him, to practically trashing him with the same ammount of power?

Well, it was really bad. Didn't make any sense, why Gray managed to win. Rufus was absolutely broken. The only people who would have been able to take the guy down would be Luxus or Gajeel due to their insane power, but obviously not the likes of Gray.

And again the same useless power of feelings. Are we going to witness the same nonsense we've seen in the battle against Grimmoire heart?

Well, Rufus is actually damn strong. Gray always wins due to plot induced stupidity. Otherwise under any logical conditions Gray should have lost to the guy who has counters to any magic and managed to memorize like tons of strong attacking spells and can also combine them.

So basically Gray performed a Denial Of Service attack on Rufus's primary ability, granting him the victory. The OHKO doesn't surprise me in a sense that Rufus does not look like the type of guy who is used to taking hits (his broken ability ensures that he does not have to ... until now).

Fight was still disappointing overall but on the other hand having a 4-5 chapter fight would have broken the pace. It's not as if Rufus was the main antagonist of the arc.

This guy with Memory Make was just broken, so how come Gray accidentally became from useless against him, to practically trashing him with the same ammount of power?

Because the rules completely changed. Hidden was not a battle. It was a game. Any of the blows that Gray took in the fight this would have automatically knocked him down, and restarted him elsewhere regardless of whether or not they actually hurt him if this was Hidden; thus prohibiting counter attacks when you've been hit, or tanking attacks. Those large scale attacks Gray used would have taken out scores of decoys, costing him dozens of points. Gray had the Raven Tail guy constantly attacking and distracting him, so Gray's attention was divided when Rufus used the one attack that he used, which has a very short dodge window.

This ain't a game anymore. Gray's allowed to tank attacks and counter attack. He can use as scale large attacks as he wishes.


Well, Rufus is actually damn strong. Gray always wins due to plot induced stupidity. Otherwise under any logical conditions Gray should have lost to the guy who has counters to any magic and managed to memorize like tons of strong attacking spells and can also combine them.

And Gray's a massive tank, and he can make anything he can envision out of ice, and he's done plenty of fighting versus flames against Natsu.

Rufus, like most non-Fairy Tail mages, isn't very tanky. Nor does he have counters to any magic, he can counter specific things he's memorized, but Gray can make as many specific things as he can imagine.

Actually that came to mind as well. The fact that he hardly takes a beating means that his defense is probably quite low. He's a range righter so its not surprising that up close hes done for.

Still--It was too fast for a win. But you got to admit, that Ice Make Unlimited looked pretty cool :zomg
Anyway, moving on. I want Juvia to go berserk!

Well, I would call Gray a massive troll. No matter how you look at it he doesn't look any better a tank than Rufus. Also how come Rufus is one-shotted with not that strong attack, while Gray surprisingly managed to take not even Orga's spell that seems to be damn strong by himself, but take it combined with his own spell. And also why Rufus didn't dodge as before he managed to evade way more difficult spells from Gray?
No matter how you look at it it's still the same friendship asspull that we've seen in Tenrojima Arc...

November 01, 2012, 09:02 AM
rufus is weak (physically i mean) ...his magic makes him dodge stuff and hit more...grey can tank damage just like natsu...one good shot at him by gray and this was bound to happen...we all keep forgetting that Gray is a monster just like natsu... and logic was pretty simple...if rufus would not have tried to memorize the magic and dodge it instead then things would have been different...but since he got cocky and tried to memorize it he got owned...Gray deserved this coz inspite of being good char he has been trolled again and again coz of focus given to natsu... good chapter

"Looks like a tank" doesn't matter. Looks are irrelevant. Time and again in the series we've seen Gray tank attacks. Heck, all throughout Hidden Narpudding was surprising Gray, and presumably hitting Gray as hard as he could. Gray suffered no actual injury from that. The thing that sets most Fairy Tail mages apart is that they're good at tanking damage. Half the reason Laxus and Azuma get so hyped is that they absorbed massive amounts of damage before going down.

Rufus didn't dodge the "One Sided Chaotic Dance" because he was busy being stunned by the speed of Gray's Ice Make, and the inability of his memorize to keep up, and Gray shifting gears caught him by surprise. He didn't dodge Ice Bringer, because he didn't expect Gray to break through the flames, after which Gray was at close range, and Rufus is a long range fighter who we've never seen dodge sudden attacks from close melee range.

This week is great, first bleach comes out early. Now fairy tail too! I'm loving it! I knew gray was going to win but I didn't think it would be so easy. I'm glad gray can make more things with his ice magic. I also like the fact that the chapter was short and not one chapter longer than necessary. Lastly, gray looks fine with rufus's hat on him, even better than rufus.
I hate this though " the power of emotion strengthens magic".

November 01, 2012, 09:23 AM
i like grays new hat.
seriously, it looks damn cool :D

anyway. i don't understand why everyone is underestimating Gray....
it was a short, but epic fight. maybe epic is a bit too much, but Ice Make Unlimited was really nice to see :)
and as i said, gray stripped :D and he wears a normal trousers, no skirt.

next chapter: legion of hungry wolves.
sounds like ogra? oO don't know :D

November 01, 2012, 09:39 AM
I really liked this chapter.
I thought than Gray vs Rufus would last for more chapter, but anyways it was really a good chapter.
After the first chapters of this arc (more precisely after the first contest) I thought than the fight between Rufus and Gra would be similar to this.
In fact I thought that Rufus would have believed he had stored all the type of Ice Magic, but than Gray would create something that he or Lyon never did before, and this would have shocked Rufus and for this reason he would not be able to neither evade or counterattack it.
I thought this because I did not think that Rufus could even use the various type of magic that he had stored, for this reason I must admit that I changed my mind after see the fight between Rufus and Eve, in which Rufus defeated him copying the attack that Mira used against Jenny.

Anyways the thing that differs from my original idea is the fact that Rufus was not able to stored that attack because that at the opposite of the other thing that Gray created (the ice shield and that ice hammer) that creation does not stop, for that reason Rufus can’t memorize it.
Anyways Gray was already able to create that strange shape of ice here http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/261/13, now thanks to Urtear that unlocked his 2nd origin container he was able to add the swords.
I was sure that thanks to Urtear powerup he would be able to refine his Ice magic, I was sure that he would able to create things more elaborate.
Infact before of Urtear’s powerup the things that he created were easy, but now just like he showed in this chapter he is able to create elaborated things, just like Urtear did in her fight with him http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/240/19.

Anyways I never thought that Rufus would be able to create his own magic, infact here http://mangastream.com/read/fairy_tail/77180506/12 he combines Gray’s magic with Orga’s magic, just like he himself said here http://mangastream.com/read/fairy_tail/77180506/11.

I really liked when just before of launch his final attack, Gray teases Rufus saying that he had memorized stronger flame, and that at the end he take Rufus hat.
The other things that I liked are that Lluvia see this fight, and blush for Gray, but then when he stripped, even the other women of the audience blush, the best in the girl that has her eyes became a hearth while covering the eyes of her daughter.
The last thing that I liked is when Gray says that he never lost to the same opponent twice, infact against Lyon and Urtear he lost the first fight (with Urtear if we split their fight in two) but then won the second fight.

November 01, 2012, 09:50 AM
I vote good. Loved the fight, but I did not expect Rufu to go down in the same chapter his powers are really remarkable I hope we see more from him.

Gray magic and his power up...just bigger and stronger shapes....he didn't really lose all his strength in this fight...he can give more maybe helping Gajeel or whoever gonna face Jura.

Name of the next chapter maybe something related to the "Rescue Team", so Mavis said there will be enemy activity to the place where she sent Erza n Laxus perhaps Mavis already planned for Erza n Laxus fights.

R.I.P Rufu you just got iced :pwned...1 down 4 to go

It seems to me that some people here are underestimating Gray; Ok, he's not as powerful as Natsu, but he's still an excellent mage.
About the chapter, the fight was short indeed, but I liked it nonetheless, also because of Gray's new technique (which is the coolest that I've ever seen in this manga).
I am happy to see out of this game Rufus; I really couldn't stand his sight (he is too arrogant).
About his defeat, as someone said, he is not a Physical mage like Gray and Natsu, so it was obvious that a technique so powerful would have instantly defeated him.
And the "power derived from friendship" is part of this manga, so we will have to live with it.

I don't know why some people are still trying to find any logic in Fairy Tail fights. I mean this is Fairy tail, so I guess the concept of "stronger and weaker" doesn't mean anything in the author's head lol.
Anyway I think the chapter was good, and even if I don't like Gray that much, must admit that the Ice Make Unlimited looked awesome.

I don't think this fight is bad at all. i don't see any friendship or any that crap. It's pretty logical. Gray is even with Natsu, who beat 2 of the strongest 5. I don't see how Rufus would beat him alone.

KingOfNight
November 01, 2012, 12:33 PM
Why is Gray so underestimated ? Seriously he has already been shown to be stronger than Natsu (without that whole Nakama crap) and without a doubt in my mind stronger than Gajeel. Think about it :
When Lyon beat Natsu, Gray defeated him after that.
When that owl looking dude kicked the crap out of Natsu, Gray owned him.
When Racer smashed Natsu easily, Gray kept up with him and defeated him with Lyon.
When Ultear shamed Natsu, Gray defeated her (And she is at least 20x times stronger than the nobodies that kicked the steel out of Gajeel).
And unlike Natsu who always gets a help or Nakama power up Gray stands for himself most of the time.

Great chapter and great victory. I see zero problem with Gray winning. Here are some points to consider:

1) Natsu, Gray's rival, dominated two of Sabertooth's guys much stronger than Rufus. Is it hard to believe that Gray can win against one guy vastly weaker than those two?

2) Rufus' magic is very good and tough match up for Gray, as stated. Gray countered his magic with his own new technique and gained advantage.

3) Gray has been hit by Natsu's flames many many times, this is just child's play for him. This has happened once more, in a fight against Fukurou, so it's very plausible.

4) As stated already, Rufus is obviously not a physical mage, he is used to just stand in place and shoot people, where as Gray is used to go into melee and known to receive and endure incredible amount of punishment. Rufus was doing well in a ranged fight, but in close combat - he was in trouble.

5) Agreed completely that Fairy Tail has had some completely logic-defying fights, but this wasn't one of them.

What an amazing simple fight! and that in just one chapter. Gray deserved to win.
Gotta ove the bottom panel http://www.mangastream.com/read/fairy_tail/77180506/21 referring Natsu's flame power.
I cant wait to see the rest fight! I dont have much hope for Juvia to win something because i dont see her defeating others..but i hope she will.

Oh and i disagree with Mavis. Gray is the the best choice of the group to match Rufus because unlike others, he can shape his magic in many many different ways. I dont see others do that.

Yeah, it wasn't so bad. Rufus defeat made sense, he lacked physical might and was too overconfident in his memorizing abilities to ignore Gray's DSA and make a run for somewhere else.

Rufus problem is that he is basically a revamped version of Rusty Rose, heck they even have the same hair color (might even be the same person in fact) so that makes him a broken glass canon who beats everyone with his boring hax abilities until he gets kicked hard in the face.

Mashima should not give such overwealming powers to second grade antagonists, it makes their defeat go credited to the idiot ball.

I liked the fight because Rufus had reasonable weaknesses, however, the pacing was terrible. It was more of a case where Rufus just stood idle trying to tank Gray's attacks while the later summoned the power of friendshipplotkaielements of harmonyridiculous attack spammage to moan him down.

Yo. Quit being whiny babies. Gray has always been quite strong. Sure he isn't a Dragon Slayer, but neither is Erza. He had his 2nd source unlocked which clearly boosted the potency to his magic. You guys need to chill. If your opponent can only memorize what he can keep up with, Gray found that weakness. Its clear that emotions have always been a plot element and its fine that in this world they actually boost power. Sabertooth doesn't have that type of conviction which is why they will always lose to FT.

Maybe I'm the only one who sees the tournament as a back story to what the actual plot to this arc is. Which would be why the fights are so short, 1 chapter at best. We have the whole thing going on the castle which is going to take center stage.

For me this was an epic chapter i wanted to see Rufus taken down because he was way too overconfident but it should have lasted longer like Natsu's fight with Sting and Rogue but still loved it, and Natsu also used his feelings to win. Anyway Rufus can only Memorized at a particular speed at a time so when Gray made so many different type of blade so fast Rufus couldn't Memorized them all so that slowed him down a bit and Gray is a lot stronger now remember the second organ ppl, also the reason why the first didn't want to make Gray fight Rufus was not because he was weak but because of the type of Magic he uses so he had to prove the first wrong. Now i want Gray to take down Lyon next.

I wonder if Gray will got his ass kick and Makes Juvia go berserk and take down the one that did it that would be cool...

Now Gajeel need to be the one to take out sting and Rogue...

Nice one, Morlun ^^


I predict a cliche ending. Rufus, who memorized the Dragon Slayer match, will decide to finish Gray with Crimson Lotus: Exploding Flame Blade.

Gray will survive mostly unscathed, say something like "Natsu can crap better fire magic than this," and finish Rufus.

Well the fight was ok. I was actually hoping it won't last over one chapter. There's no time for that and, thankfully, Mashima is not Kubo.

Gray's magic ability has really been amped since second origin. All his shapes are more detailed and it all looks faster. Glad that he got the time to shine. He was always cool. But I think the best part for me was when he took Rufus' hat and put it on. :hip

Now, I could try to legitimize Rufus's defeat, but he's named after Ron Stoppable's naked mole rat. Really, I wasn't expecting much from this douchebag come crunch time anyway, and yes the way he was defeated actually does make sense. He's memorizing magic. No matter how fast you commit stuff to memory it will be a longer process than the SPEED OF THOUGHT. Which is basically how I figure Gray won. An emotion, an instinctual (read: happens as fast as you can think) action or reaction, will always trump cognitive awareness.

Very well said, Rufus got his ass kick and it was about time. Fairy tail will be number one...

I was waiting something like hard beating of gray and than last omg wtf new powerfull attack that will freeze the f*ck kilometer around and win the match but whatever. I think Mashima is cuting fights a bit because there is much much more material he wants to show us. To make this fight more intresting it would have taken 2-3 chapters. And am I the only one who thinks this rufus guy's op magic is kinda similar to grimoire heart's dude who could do imagination magic? They also look a bit similiar - both fags :nod

Rustyrose? Yeah, the idea is almost the same. Rufus could only imagine physical things, objects, body parts and such. In reality, his mind was his only limit of ideas. He probably had to train a lot to come up with best methods and get rid of shitty ones, giving his objects and summons names and such.

Rufus was limited to things he experienced, I guess. Memorizing stuff he has seen, then using it to create new magic. That's how the making of memories should work in any case. Pretty hax magic. Too bad he didn't train his body more. He'd likely be unstoppable.

I don't know which one I would like more. Rufus' seems kinda stronger, since he can negate magic as well.

I liked this chapter. In my opinion it showed the progress that Gray made, due to obtaining Second Origin.

After all, it should be pretty obvious that the results of the tournament won't matter much, when it comes to saving Lucy, considering she's currently trapped in the dungeons, beneath the King's palace - after all, considering the fact that apparently people never got out of that place - due to some unknown reason, I doubt the King or the Princess would risk sending his troops down there to "rescue" Lucy.

Rufus's memory magic memorizes others' magic which he uses to fight with Rufus used fire natsu's magic to try and defeat natsu however he forgot that natsu and gray fight every day so their level is always the same. hahaha now gray will go on and finish others hehe

Well the fight was ok. I was actually hoping it won't last over one chapter. There's no time for that and, thankfully, Mashima is not Kubo.

Gray's magic ability has really been amped since second origin. All his shapes are more detailed and it all looks faster. Glad that he got the time to shine. He was always cool. But I think the best part for me was when he took Rufus' hat and put it on. :hip

Heh, thanks. Close enough. :)

I'm glad Gray got a categorical victory. Like Gajeel, he's not that far away from Natsu's power level. Now let him join Gajeel, Juvia and/or Laxus and defeat Jura. :)

The multiblade thing looks like it was suggested by Erza (chapter 14 for instance) and this memory overload technique was probably brainstormed beforehand. Gray is battle hardened and knows when and how to play dirty while Rufus is used to a one strike win. In my opinion, emotions didn't have much to do with it, just preparation, cleverness and prolonged fighting experience.

I wonder about Juvia actually taking somebody on. In chapter 304, Mavis literally said that "Juvia will provide logistical support by looking for enemies" and we didn't see her in action. Could be she's the team leader.

Coming next weeks, Erza against Kagura and Minerva, Gajeel against Sting and Laxus against Jura?

Well, I won't say that this was a good battle, but it wasn't simply a plot-shield win.
Gray was actually pretty brillant in this battle.

Basically, he created a lot of ice, to force Rufus to use fire.
Then, as the ice was melting, he went straight through it and took the fire damage so that he can get close to him to give him the final blow.
The fact that Gray was able to take this attack without problem is because he's used to take way worst fire damage from Natsu.

Thus, the reason he said that he "memorized" stronger fire before.

Overall, this wasn't that bad!

I voted for Epic for this chapter, but I think I was caught up by how cool Gray looked in Rufus' hat. XD I probably should have voted for Good, but whatever. At least Rufus didn't go down without doing some damage.

And to those that don't like the friendship-boosts-magic thing, it's been explicitly said that strong emotions (or at least strong positive emotions) boost magical power. What's wrong with that? And if you don't like it, fair enough, but at least accept that it's gonna happen in Fairy Tail. And if you really don't like it, then don't read Fairy Tail.

Most people are whining about that emotion-powerboost thingy, but they mostly children. If they ever fought on the street protecting their girlfriend they'd know what boost can emotion and fear give to a person. Magical power in Fairy Tail, strength and reflexes in real life, the same thing.

I liked this chapter. Granted, I'm a sucker for weapon designs and this chapter provided me a lot of eye-candy. And it was not such a fun fight but at least not that bad.

And Rufus Magic is probably the best after Arc of Embodiment so far. Why I always like the magics of feminine guys!? ._.

Some of you guys are being very defensive IMO, If some1 did not like the chapter or how the fight went...don't start saying don't read fairy tail...actually if you can't take the criticism..don't read the forums then. Every1 is entitled of his/her opinion.

1) Hell no I did not like the fight, not because how Gray won, but Rufus magic was awesome & I hoped we could see more from this magic. His magic is sure going in the top 5 magic presented in this Manga.

2) Gray beating Rufus...makes more sense than Natus beating Sting+Rouge...with an attack hardly moved Gildartz a couple steps back

3) I disagree with Mavis. Emotions had nothing to do with anything in this fight. Mavis was wrong, Gray clearly used his head in this battle, which is not the first time he always uses his head in battles (To think and head butt if necessary).

4) Rufus memorize ice magic was no more working with Gray increasing his speed in making shapes. The next thing would any1 think to do is to attack Ice with Fire, but this Ice mage here...took a dragon slayer flame...he can take on some newbie fire.

Erza is not an opponent, she's a force of nature. It's like an earthquake, you can't really lose against it, because it wasn't competing against you. :)

November 02, 2012, 04:45 AM
Gray's mention of more powerful flames was predictable, and the fight overall was somewhat unspectacular and rather uneventful. Bit of a letdown, to be honest. Rufus was disappointing. Gray's magic was pretty impressive, so it wasn't a total loss in terms of entertainment. It was good to see Gray's progress. Hopefully the other battles are going to be more tense, and have a bit more going on.

November 02, 2012, 08:03 AM
good chapter indeed.
i think ice-make still stronger than memory-make i mean in memory make, rufus have to remember magics which he must see beforehand for casting but in ice make, gray create anything with ice he can imagine and he imagine faster than rufus's memorization speed and with second origin he got from ultear he can cast them repeatedly without a problem of getting exhausted. i dont think he can do that move named 'one sided chaotic dance' before second origin so this is a nice improvement for gray.
also one thing got my attention rufus cant use every spell if i'm not mistaken he memorized natsu's battle against sting and rogue but he cant use natsu's flame against gray instead he used normal fire magic which he have used before against eve, so i think he can't use lost magics like dragon slayer and god slayer magic despite he memorized them, so orga's magic is not a god slayer magic nor lost magic.
anyway waiting for orga vs laxus. we will see what orga's magic actually is in that fight.

Could it be that when Rufus memorizes an attack, it doesn't mean that the attack is performed in the same power as the original that has been memorized? Just a process of being a copycat and when performed, it is done based on the performers powers not the original thing..

However this way Rufu's magic is the same of Kurohebi, which I doubt.
Rufu's magic is a very advanced one and it would be interesting to see it used again, even hough I doubt it myself; but who knows, Rogue, Sting, Orga and Rufus might become members of FT. :derp

I just found it funny that Rufus was reading a book titled "Le Memory".

In the raws provided earlier, it was also written like this. In proper French, it would have been "La mémoire". I think Mashima is a secret redditor.

Somewhat more seriously, though, I see a increased mention of memory in this entire arc. We were first introduced to it by means of Rufus. Then Natsu and Gajeel in their battle suddenly became technical and showed that magic in itself isn't enough and, like the martial artists, you need to keep a clear head and memory of how your opponent places his feet, breathes, synchronises etc. Then there was Mavis, and now we have Gray reminding us that he has memorised Natsu's flames.

So they're not just dumb muscles who are eager to fight.

I like these little touches by Mashima (or maybe, he just had the idea and is now using it everywhere).

Those weren't the same attacks as we've seen. He takes stuff he has memorized and molds those memories into new shapes, i.e. different spells with same elemental affinty. He did call his attacks in his own names. The casters magic power is probably the limit. Can't expect Rufus to match Natsu's attacks. It's probably enough to defeat most of the opponents. It's no wonder ST was considered a strongest guild. They just had the misfortune of fighting the main cast, lol.

Well, I would call Gray a massive troll.

Gray actually never fought Rufus in the hidden round but just was hit by a long-range attack that hit everyone in the round besides Nalpudding who was fast enough to evade it - which was the first hint that speed is a way to beat Rufus.


I don't know why some people are still trying to find any logic in Fairy Tail fights. I mean this is Fairy tail, so I guess the concept of "stronger and weaker" doesn't mean anything in the author's head lol.

And I don't know why some people here have been forgetting logic once there's words like "friendship", "comradeship", "feelings" and "emotions" popping up somewhere in a dialogue.

I think that in the next chapter we will see the reaction of the member of Fairy Tail that participate in the tournament and that of Sabertooth (I am particularly interested in Minerva’s reaction).
I want to know that because she could decide to decide to punish Gray.
I wanted to see Minerva vs Lluvia since Minerva’s first appearance, in the chapter where she stopped Natsu’s attack, I think this because Lluvia is the opponents that would have the best change to defeat her.
For this reason I really would like if Minerva will injured Gray very badly, just like she did with Lucy if not even worst, this would piss off Lluvia, just like in her fight against Meldy (in the truth this would happen even if she will only try to hurt Gray).
Anyways I don’t think that this will happen immediately, infact I believe that before of this Lluvia will fight Lyon.

Anyways I think that the next chapter will be about Natsu and others, I believe that the “Legion of hungry wolves” will be the first trap that Natsu and the others will encounter.
I believe infact that between every fight we will see Natsu and the others, they will encounter various traps, gradually more and more difficult.
For that reason I believe that in the first pages we will see as I said the reaction of the others mages of Sabertooth and Fairy Tail that participates in the tournements, and even that of Urtear, and then we will see Natsu and the others for the rest of the chapter (perhaps Natsu’s part will end in the first pages of the chapter 308).

I think that we will see Lyon’s reaction in next chapter, but perhaps if we are lucky even his meeting with Lluvia, or that with Gray (I don’t know if he will immediately met with Lluvia or if before if he will fight with Gray but then Lluvia would come to stop the fight).
There is the possibilities that the next fight would be that of Erza, since Mavis in chapter 305 said that “the enemies are active around there” (I believe that it will be or Minerva or Milliana (I hope Milliana, since I hope that Lluvia will be the one who will defeat Minerva)).

What's the point for Rufus to memorize Natsu's abilities during his fight against Sting&Rogue if he can't use those same flames here ?

Could it be that he can't use those but can somehow "transfer" the abilities he memorized to his Dragonslayer guildmates ? Is that why they looked so confident for this last match despite the fact that Natsu humiliated them ?

Or was he just so overconfident that he thought his current flames would work ?

Mavis' emotions comment made me want to puke as usual, but as for the rest of the chapter it was a great fight, at least for this arc. Gray's Unlimited attack was boring and unoriginal, I know Mashima's drawn attacks that have looked like that before, and I don't really get why Rufus couldn't just dodge, and you people raise a good point with Rufus not memorizing Natsu's flames, but who cares? We all knew Gray was going to win, and he actually had to work for it. And it wasn't really a hyped battle or anything. Mavis was a moron for thinking someone from Fairy Tail would lose though. Not in this story sister.

November 06, 2012, 11:10 AM
I kinda liked the chapter although seeing how it turned out I don't see how it is that grey's abilities were bad against rufus. Granted, rufus' ability to merge and create new magics could border in overpowered however ultimately had a counter which was perfect for it. I mean, he just went and created magic faster than what rufus could memorize it.... Isn't that a perfect counter?

What I do wonder is why rufus didn't use any of the stronger magic he had seen. Copying grey's magic is a given however he also seemed to have copied other powerful stuff. What about DF? What about natsu's flame? What about Natsu's lightning flame? I guess it comes down to just how strong sting and rogue actually were and just how rufus would compare to them. Overall rufus actually was an opponent for grey and grey has generally been just barely below natsu. Does that mean rufus is also that much stronger than sting and rogue? .

I wonder about the title... legion of hungre wolves? It seems like focus is going to change for natsu and co for a bit. Some wild animals should be no problem for natsu and mira though, I guess the issue will be protecting the defenseless girls... Anyone thinks its about time lucy learns how to deal with her key logistic issues? Even if the amount of magic she has is no longer an issue it seems like she is prone to losing her keys now. She lost them to minerva very easily and now she is defenseless without them. I wonder if learning how to ex equip stuff is viable. Keeping her keys in an alternate dimension and summoning them would altogether avoid her current situation. It would even be faster than getting them out of a pouch...

I forgot to mention how pimp it was when Gray put on Rufus' hat. Now thats revenge with style. I was worried that Mashima was going to start giving Gray the Musica treatment since both characters share the same design and just have him win with friendship speeches, but nope. Grap will always be my favorite out of the main character team. I hope he keeps that hat on for the rest of this round, really rubs his victory in Sabertooth's face.

Well, no way current Gray is close to Natsu... Natsu utterly destroyed both Sting and Rogue with just his Fire DS Magic. Gray would have lost badly to any of those two and I seriously doubt they would actually need Dragon Force.


And well, Gray's victory against Rufus was one of the dumbest even in Fairy Tail... he didn't even try to dodge Gray's last attack, when before he easily managed to dodge way quicker attacks. And also how the guy didn't use any of tons of spells he copied before... he barely used two on Gray.

This chapter was a complete fake out. You can come up with excuses but ultimately there's no reason Gray won beyond the plot demanding that he do. Seems that towards the end of the manga Fairy Tail always gets to win the day - without even being pushed back particularly.

Natsu's victory was... a tad bit over the top. If Gajeel had stayed behind, or if they'd run out of the juice needed to maintain DF mode it wouldn't have been a big deal, but 1 slayer vs 2 DF slayers seemed to be pushing it for the power of friendship win.

In Gray's case I think it was a fair win. It was established in the Eisenwald arc that Gray was noteworthy for the speed at which he worked creation magic, so he outsped another creation magic user, just one who works with memories rather than ice. It was also established in the Tower of Heaven art that copying other peoples magic doesn't necessarily make it as powerful, so someone who deals with Natsu on a daily basis should be able to deal with weaker fire magic. Also, as has been pointed out a few times before, absolutely nothing indicated that Rufus should be able to take any punishment and the way his magic works even suggests that durability/defense shouldn't have been something he had much of.

So Natsu's victory-as it was handled-was either plot or nakama power, but Gray won fair and square.

Well, 90% of FT victories is mostly plot-power of friendship. Can't you agree with this?:)
The same fight between Gray and Ultear and especially Azuma against Elza. The last one was the most ridiculous I've even seen.
Also, Natsu's DS magic was actually reffered as very strong in the begining of the manga. It was Natsu who mostly took out the strongest opponents in every Arc and he is also main hero. He also now not only has his own DS Magic that got two times stronger after Ultear's power-up, but another DS Magic and their combo, so obviously he is way stronger than Gray. Of course his victory over Sting and Rouge was a big surprise, but for Gray to win this one and especially in such one-sided fashion...

Morlun
Well, going by what was shown in the last chapter Gray destroyed Rufus. Not utterly, but still.:) Still, for me there is no logic in this...Gray was actually shown quite useless after timeskip and here against the guy who can actually destroy Gray with tons of spells who are also stronger than Gray's, the author makes an illogical way to take out Rufus... No matter how you look at it it's a bad writing...



P.S. About new chapter...
It was quite good.:) So we are getting a special ops to fight Natsu and Co... Well, I actually doubt they are strong enough to give hard time to Natsu and Mira... And if we add Wendy and L:ucy, this should be quite easy for them. But you never know with FT.:))
Also even though Arcadios is shown like this in the current chapter, I'm still not sure if he is a good or bad. He might still turn to be either of the two possibilities.:)
And in the next chapter we are going to witness Natsu's, Mira's, Wendy's and Lucy's power and see how good their opponents are.

Well, the differense between Kakashi and Rufus is that Kakashi is low on chakra, while Rufus seems to be quite strong in terms of magical power... And is reffered among the strongest mages currently. Well, his magic obviously makes him one of the strongest.
