    Fairy Tail Fairy Tail 288 Discussion/ 289 Predictions

    This is where you can post and discuss the spoilers for the next chapter of Fairy Tail.

    24 Hour Spoiler Rule:
    • Mangahelpers enforces a temporary blockade for discussion of new spoilers/chapters. This blockade ends 24 hours after raws are publicly released.
    • For series with a forum, please keep all discussion regarding the newest chapter and its content inside the spoiler/chapter discussions until 24 hours have passed after the raw/chapter's release.
    • Please wait 24 hours before using art from new chapters in signatures and avatars.
    • Please wait 24 hours before posting any art based on new chapters in the art and stories section.
    • The 24 hour rule will be strictly enforced. This is a courtesy rule. Not every member reads spoilers and not everyone can read new chapters as soon as they are released.

    Spoiler Pics and Translations:
    • At Mangahelpers we only allow three manga pages to be posted directly as spoilers.
    • This rule is not judged based on the number of thumbnails but the number of pages pictured.
    • Please provide hyperlinks for any excess pages.
    • Please do not re-post already available spoiler pics or summaries.
    • International translations may be posted in the spoiler discussion thread. A moderator will add it with credit to the English translation in the spoiler pics and summaries thread.
    • Do not significantly edit your post after more posts have been made. Please make a new post if new spoilers are available.

    For-Profit Download Links
    • If a for-profit download link is provided, we ask that a non-profit alternative is available in the same post.
    • Linking to another website with for-profit download links and no non-profit alternative also violates site rules.
    • Mangahelpers asks that members who may not be comfortable using sites that help turn a profit for pirated material have a choice.
    • Mediafire, Rapidshare, and Sendspace are all non-profit links. Providing any of these as a download link fulfills the non-profit alternative requirement.

    Actually that is a good point. The magic reminiscence to zeref has supposedly been there for a while, perhaps even before shelia ever participated in the tournament. In this regard, it might actually be a coincidence that arcadios just happened to do something as shelia started fighting with an ancient powerful lost magic. Basically a plot setup to mislead gerard. I wonder if we will actually see the tournament come to an end....

    I've never been a fan of this whole God Slayer thing, but I was kinda relieved that it was a Lost magic and hoped only Zancrow would've access to it... But now, probably that Orga too can use it too, kinda lame if you ask me

    Why everyone insist on lame? There are only three users in the world, place din top 3 guilds and suddenly is lame?

    Let's remember that DS Magic is also a lost magic. It only means that it can't be thought by regular means, but why the hell top warlocks would learn a magic by regular means?
    The Sky is pouring
    The wind is blowing
    The sea looks red,
    a surging sea of flames
    looks like the entrance to hell
    'Perfect', the captain said.

    As I said, it is the whole concept of " God Slayer " that I find lame to begin with, not the fact that 3 or 4 or 10 people knowing it honestly, but since it was a lost magic, I had hoped that maybe it will be limited to Zancrow only and that's it.

    well maybe Zeref is the 'God' who thought people god slayer magic, it would explain why the dragons are so cautious of him. It could also explain why they seem to 'fear' him since god slayer magic seems to be very much like DS but so much stronger. Natsu almost killed himself to defeat (ish) Zancrow who got up a few chapters later like nothing and then Zeref just looked at him and byebye Zancrow.

    But if Zeref is a " God ", what is Acnologia then ? Mega God ? The way Zeref talked about Acnologia suggested that he's insanely strong, stronger than Zeref himself probably...

    Dragon Slayer is Lost magic, too. So is Arc magic of which we already saw Embodiment Arc, Time Arc and Tree Arc. And the rest of Grimoire Heart also used Lost Magic. It's the same with One Piece's Haki and Haoushoku: Fairy Tail is a story about the top notch mages. No one should be surprised that there's a lot of characters to be able to use magic that is said to be "rare".

    If people start call it lame or even rubbish, then okay, it's their opinion. But - to repeat this over and over - they are simply reading the wrong manga and better should stop NOW before being disappointed too much. Because there's even more lost magic to come, and we can be 100% sure of it.

    Now, as that is said: I'm actually curious how the hell Cheria (Tales of Graces reference?) was able to learn that magic...

    well he never looked like he feared acnologia so maybe its not Zeref whose under Acnologia but vice versa. Zeref gave life to numerious monsters and took life even so he's very godlike =/ its just an idea, it could be acnologia who is the 'god' and just used the form of a dragon.

    Why do we assume lost magic can't be taught by regular means? If I recall lost magic is one that had severe consequences and thus was lost in history. That does not imply it can't be taught like any other magic nor does it rule out some special process. For all we know there even are a few non lost magics that can't be taught regularly.

    Acnologia didn't seem that cautious to me. It was the other way around. He probably boarded Hades' ship more to get away from the dragon than to punish the guy.

    Either way, I doubt Shelia is a god slayer. She's probably got some neat trick, but to get a reaction from Mavis it isn't likely to be something the tournament already showcased.

    I think you take too seriously the "god" part. The whole thing merely means that there is a creature which at some point was called a god and magic to slay such creature was developed (which incidentally means human using the same powers as the creature they slay). Interestingly enough, there could even be other kinds of slayers for other lesser or greater creatures. Basically you find a powerful monster, make a human imitate its constitution and magic and you got a new slayer thingy lol.

    As far as we know zeref is a human though. Even then, if he is a god hellbent on destroying the world why would he teach others how to kill him? Even if he did, if natsu is the one supposed to defeat him then why would natsu be a DS and not a god slayer? There seems to be a clear connection between zeref and acknologia, I would argue it is far more likely that zeref is the DS of life and death or something rather than a god slayer. Granted, the supposed gods could have some important purpose in the grand scheme of the story but I doubt zeref himself would be one. Perhaps acknologia works for the gods and he merely took zeref in for some reason.

    Well, a 'god' can mean something beyond human which Zeref seems to have achieved. maybe its not the orthodox meaning of 'god' we think. I mean he's liived beyond human age for around 400 years or so, he created life and took life which could be considered godlike but not the gods we think off. it seems its more plausible he is a DS but i never said he was a GS but rather a 'god'. I mean the dragons don't use DS magic but rather teach it. Although hades was the one who thaught Zancrow :/

    Interesting, at least. So we know that dark elements are the "God" slaying versions. I assume that Sheila has a similar magic than Zeref because She's using the same principle, but less advanced.
    I kinda agree with this. Remember that Sky DS also had the ability to heal (=life). And if we consider that the GS magic is like the "opposite" of DS magic (the color is black, could be the counter part of the DS magic?), then the opposite of "giving life" is death. So yeah, Zeref could be the Sky GS, the only difference between he and Shelia being that he has mastered the "death" part of his power.
