    Well, the issue with these slaying magics is that to begin with they mimic the constitution and power of the creature they are supposed to slay. In this regard, DS magic is basically the same stuff dragons use and GS magic is basically the same magic that gods use except that it is used by humans. Now, if the implication of both magics is the mimicking of a creature for the sake of killing that creature then how would it add up if zeref is a god? A human copying a human's constitution and magic for the sake of killing a human? It does not quite add up. The way I see it a god must be an intrinsically different creature from a human or dragon with insane powers to say the least so that it makes sense to copy its power and constitution.

    I never really thought much against the idea hades teaching zancrow DS magic. Why would that make the magic not GS magic? If the principle of a slaying magic is to mimic a creature for the sake of killing it then why does it really matter who teaches it? Even DS with lachrima are by all intents and purposes fully functional as DS and we have seen that DS lachrima can actually enhance a DSs magic (sting and rogue apparently). Zancrow being a GS implies hades himself somehow acquired knowledge of how to take the power and constitution of a god. Its like saying grey is not an ice make user because ice didn't teach him the magic. As long as the creature in question is being effectively mimicked then we have no reason to suggest the user is not what he claims to be.

    Just saw the scanlation on manga readers. It seems the one at manga fox missed the page with wendy and shelia eating the air lol. It does seem like shelia can heal better when eating the air... or is she perhaps able to use her wind magic to heal herself?

    Re: Fairy Tail 287 Discussion/ 288 Predictions

    I did think of Orga as a GS, but not that Shelia was it. We did however gain some knowledge of it that I don't think anyone has brought up, and that is the way it is learned. The true dragon slayers are all raised by dragons, some might argue that they are dragons or share dragons blood, most of us are anyway familiar with the idea that Natsu, Wendy and Gajeel are either statues or over eighty years meaning more or less that they are not normal human beings. The GS on the other hand, through Shelia, are now known to be "human"(normal) and with relatives, since Shelia has her cousin. This should explain that GS are not raised by "gods" the same way true DS are raised by dragons, instead they are more like fake DS who have been infused with the magic.

    I'm not the biggest fan of the GS nor the fake DS, since it kind of fouls the pureness and uniqueness of the DS that Mashima built up at the beginning of the manga, but I have to admit that it does bring some sort of superiority against the original DS, too bad Natsu already defeated his counterpart. With Orga it also brings the idea of a true lightning DS if not a lightning Dragon.

    About the chapter though, Wendy has evolved a lot and it's a little unlucky for her to face her natural enemy, so I guess we still have to wait until she finally gets her chance to really prove herself.

    Spoiler: off-topic nostalgic memories... show

    I hope Mashima explains the origin of the God Slayer magic. I can't believe Im saying this, but Wendys fight seems to be the most interesting fight so far. Other fights were rather just flashy (Erza, Laxus, Orga, Jura vs Myst) or just plain ass boring (Elfman vs Bacchus and the rest, who don't even need to be mentioned). This one seems to be rather big and important plot wise. Looking forward to some explanation (though I don't have much hope on that part).

    Then Natsu & Gajeel & Wendy must be gods too ? Real DS certainly aren't humans and Natsu and Gajeel are more than 80 years old, probably Wendy too.
    The way I see it, to me, Dragons are the strongest beings out there, Acnologia's performance should be a proof of that, I fail to see any creature stronger than them except ofc " God " or whatever created this world if it does exist

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...
    Off-topic did Cheria's artes include wind attacks?? I haven't played the game yet....

    Cool Well...

    So Shelia is Zancrow's successor huh?

    Now I believe Zeref had something to do with her training, nobody gets lost magic for free.

    Maybe she is not even Sherry's cousin and is using some sort of memory altering magic to looklike part of her guild.

    Lets be honest.
    I am disappointed in this chapter.
    Another god slayer? What a coincidence!

    Seriously. Could have thought of
    Something cool for Wendy to fight against...

    I think Mashima needed to be a God Slayer to wrap up some stuff.

    It was not to make Wendy fight something cool (Although her fight so far is one of the best) but to develop the plot. I think it's quite obvious.
    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.

Basically a plot setup to mislead gerard. I wonder if we will actually see the tournament come to an end....
    Yeah, one of my first thoughts was if this was a red herring and Arcadios is busy, and has things set up such that it looks like one of the participants is the source of any dark magic that leaks.

    I was wondering if anyone considered that this match could end up as the games first draw?

    I doubt it, I don't think fairy tail A is going to alg significantly behind fairy tail B here. I think wendy is going to win but she is going to have to step her game up.

    A should be a few points ahead right now. If they tie and end up a little behind then B just has to do a little worse at the next mystery event.

    That said, I feel like the most likely tie is the final battle.

    I'm not really a fan of there being more God Slayers. Judging by Orga's reaction it is safe to assume that he is a Lightning God Slayer, and all those God Slayer elements are actually black.

    It was supposed to be super secret lost magic that no one knows about that Hades taught Zancrow, now it doesn't seem really special. It looks like it's only purpose is to introduce decent rivals to Dragon Slayer magic. Who knows, maybe there will be good explanation of its origin that will influence the story.
