    lol@Mashima for building up the hatred toward Raven Tail.

    I'm a bit surprised that no one noticed Flare cheating after Natsu's intervention, it was pretty obvious. She should have been banned. Anyway, if they don't discover who's behind it, Fairy Tail will never win.

Good chapter though
    yea this is setting us up for a flashback episode that will tell us the backstory of what happend between ewin and makarov

    also i was dissapointed to see lucy cast such an awesome spell just to have them cheat, yes i agree that raven tail is pretty damn pathetic and i am starting to really hate them, i mean if they are strong and just kick ass but are evil but to fucking cheat....i cant stand cheaters.

    i really want to see natsu kick someones ass in a battle type situation, or erza!!

    Wow. Mashima REALLY wants to make people hate Raven Tail. As for all enemies until now they had a greater goal - even if it was evil. Most of them even fought noble or were just badass. The best example is Asuma. But Raven Tail seems to be nothing but scum. From the very first matchup they just cheated to embarass Fairy Tail.

    But i hope this will stop soon. Some things seem to begin to work out of character now. Natsu's reaction to what lucy did was great and it was just fine - but i can't see makarov holding it much longer? How long it will until he confronts ewan/iwan? But well. Yajima seemed to notice it and i think he will be setting out to find the origin of raven tails cheating. It will leed to their disqualification somewhen when they start to brawl against the real enemy of this arc (this commander guy it seems).

    I want Laxus to be shown soon. We always see makarovs reaction towards ewan, but never laxus'...

    And how did Lucy learn that spell? Did she remember out of nothing? She hadn't even time to practice... Moreover it is one of this one hitters. If you miss, you lose because it takes too much magical power... I still think a double summon of Leo & Caprico might be more powerful in a real fight.

    ps: Well it quicked sucked when gildarts departed right after the timeskip to be on his own again. Now we know the reason behind this doing. Considering his reaction towards bluenote and his hate against ewan this cheating would had its possible ending in the destruction of the whole arena by gildarts magic. (Wow, i want Fairy Tail to just destroy Raven Tail so much right now)

    I think these tournament is rigged... I also wouldn't be surprised if all the previous editions were as well.

    I remember FT characters saying how "unlucky" they were with the previous contests, and in this edition is clear that ST and RT have unexplained advantages. I would guess it has something to do with whoever is living in the castle were Wendy was attacked...

    My bet at this point would be that the whole thing is designed to harvest magic power, and assure highest status to certain guilds is just part of the process.

    P.S: Lucy Uranometria was awesome, but i had minor "Naruto feelings" when she used Gemini to (almost) cast it...
    P.P.S: Makarov and Iwan's story will (finally!) be addressed, and Gajeel probably will play a part. It was weird when Iwan said HIS name upon the arrival of FT Team B, considering his SON was there.

    Most everything's already been said -- Awesome Uranometria from Lucy, dirty Raven Tail cheaters, etc...I think it's kinda cool though that the big-nose guy can nullify magic (seemingly). He's IMO the best design out of the Raven Tail mages, glad to see he's got an equally cool magic.
    Rest in Peace, Pwncrow. You will be missed.

    i wonder if lucy will get to fight orca, to get him back for taking her attack, it could be a tag team fight with wendy that would be nice to have payback.

    Wow RT, is the lowest of the low... They must be in on something. Now just to figure out what that something is.....
    After Hades and Ultear I thought I wouldn't hate any other characters more... Well done Mashima San, I'd like to "cleanse" RT out of existance..

    Nice build up, but I'd like it if FT loses the tournament, but finally reveals the dark secrets of this place..
    Kind of a lose the battle to win the war scenario....


    It's on. Like Donkey Kong

    The amount of Lucy fanservice in this chapter was ridiculous.....sheesh Mashima. I liked Flares design but her magic was really uninspired. Oh well she's clearly not one of Raven Tail's best anyway, one of the lower ranked members.

    I have a problem with Lucy using Uranometoria though. Hibiki giving her that spell was a one-time deal, and she had absolutely no idea what was happening while she was casting and remembered nothing afterwards. Plus she was able to remember and learn how to cast such a high level spell in only a few days?? Well its not the the most ridiculous thing Mashima's done so whatever.

    She had at least a couple months in which to ask Hibiki what he'd done, look up the spell for herself, and start attempting to learn it. That's months exclusive of the time spent on Tenrou Island, or in the Stellar Spirit world. And she probably asked him before the alliance parted ways.

    Re: Fairy Tail 272 Discussion / 273 Predictions

    I really don't see why people are pumped or excited for this chapter.

    Lucy's spell took ages to incant, seriously, if she was up against any competent mage in this tournament they would have tried to counter the spell rather than quaking in their boots. Corona has been a very pathetic character from the get go. Mashima designed her to used a magic we have already seen before, hair magic wasn't exciting back then and it isn't now. We have seen the psychotic personality before as well. Just nothing interesting at all about Corona.

    I know Mashima is trying to develop a motif here of having everyone feel Fairy Tail is a loser guild, and that Raven Tail are going out of their way to confront Fairy Tail, but it is just getting tiresome. It's really not something I can legitimately complain about, but it's just my personal opinion.

    Also, to the people saying Fairy Tail vs Raven Tail in fairly fought 1 v1 battles would always turn out a Fairy Tail victory, well no shit. They are the focus of this manga, they have had cop outs left and right from Mashima forcing them to win their battles.

    The chapters have all had their flaws, but they have also had interesting moments, so I really can't degrade them too much. It is just that personally they aren't exciting for me, I want them to be, but for some reason I simply am no longer captivated by Fairy Tail. I will continue to read since I've completed plenty of chapters. so I will just sit back with low expectations and read them for the fights or sudden plot twists and just hope for the best I guess.
    The OG that ran Bleach for near a decade is no more.
    Cheers to a boss villain, I tip my hat to you Aizen

    WOW! this was- wait for it -expected!! i knew from the beginning that lucy would lose from someone intervention!! it was a boring chapter for me.

    RT, is So so. nothing to them except the aim for FT?! unexplained for now! but my guess would be a rigged tournament, and that this whole tournament wouldn't see a finish because of something that will occur in the middle of everything and then FT will start wrecking Havoc in the arena.

    Well other mages noted what happened. Makarov, Yamajii look at his expression, and I'm sure that FT team B also noticed something. As well as members of other guilds. The audience however, is being kept in the dark.

    And not having a referee is also part of the dark scheme that's going on in this tournament.

    i wonder if levi will sript the outside so no cheating can be done. or with freedo,
    Nah, he heard Lucy whispering Asuka-chan.

    Lucy using Gemini to summon Uranometriora was interesting. And I didn't get the part of, doing it together, doesn't make it as powerful as last time. But, why does she need Gemini to do it? Can't she summon it by herself?

    @LoS - well, yeah her character is a mix of other characters we've seen before, but I'm sure there's another purpose for that.

    And Lucy took time to summon the spell last time as well. And we know that this always happens in manga/anime. Whenever one of the characters is going to use a bigger attack, the opponents never do a thing.

    And on the part of 1vs1 fights, it's always been like that. But, they have also lost before winning. Not on full scale fights, but it still counts.

    In this case, we know that Lucy would've owned Corona if it wasn't for her blackmailing and the other guy's intervention.

    Anyway, Laxus vs the Armor guy seems to be coming next. Will it be the 3rd loss in a row?

    I believe by summoning Gemini her power increased or doubled.

    I think if Laxus lost this it will be because of Ivan doing something to his son by taking the Lacrima inside Laxus body. I think Laxus will go in Dragon force to beat the black lightning guy from Raven Tail, but I hope if that happened Laxus would be able to use Titan magic just like his grandfather and that will be his win.

    From what it sounds like she never asked Hibiki since he's surprised, plus there was never any mention of any training back then before Tenrou Island, and they only had about a week to find a partner before the exam. The gap between this arc and Tenrou Island in which Lucy could've developed this spell as a result of most of their 3 months being lost is very short. You'd figure she'd use something like that in the fight against Hades if she could. Right after Oracion Seis was Edolas, there wasn't much of a timegap there either. There was no time for her to train. For her to be able to use this without any mention of it for the past 100+ chapters since its use and without much time for training, when its supposed to be an extremely difficult spell seems a bit much.

    I don't know why you all say She forgot it. Why? She already did the spell and it wasn't one time deal. If anyone can certainly PROVE that the spell will be erased after execution when She first make it, I would gladly take out my words. Hibiki said that He SHARED some energy for Lucy that time to be able to make that spell and INSTALLED the knowledge of it.

    About the time used while executing it...It happens EVERY TIME in EVERY MANGA except Berserk or HxH. Aside those, there is always some precious moments the characters use to charge their power. I like to think that the awesomeness freezes the enemies.
    Let's just remember for a moment Saint Seiya, Dragon Ball and even modern fighting shounen like Naruto or Bleach. EACH of them have this. Talking in every rol game takes at least 6 seconds of the time and it's only when you're saying a short phrase. They usually speak TONS of shit to hit. EVERY.FUCKING.SINGLE.TIME.
    The Sky is pouring
    The wind is blowing
