    His point was the word is tale, not tail. Fairy Tail the manga is a play on words of fairy tale.


    I think we're seeing the 28F test rather than jumping straight to 30F because of the introduction of these two new characters that SIU said would reappear later. I wonder if we'll see Team Tangsooyook's 29F test or if we'll jump straight to 30F. I imagine they'll be getting to the 30F with very little time to spare before the tournament starts, and he might want to show them rushing to get through the test to indicate that they aren't so good that they can easily climb 8 floors in 2 years.

    I didn't see much tension between Koon and Dan. Dan seemed to accept that he had been relying on the others to carry him if he did something foolish and that it was wrong to do so. His relationship with Ran wasn't the best, but Ran seemed to have great confidence in his ability during the test. He might have a bit of an inferiority complex, but his skill is undeniably useful and perhaps Rachel managed to cheer him up (while also trying to turn him to her side?).

    Climbing 8 floors in 2 years is already insanely fast (it also seems tests dates are scarcer on higher floors, which makes it even slower)

    I can't wait to see how much change and growth will have occurred by the time these characters become rankers. Supposing certain character even make it to the top at all because, unlike a lot of series, I don't think it's a forgone conclusion that most of these character will make it even past floor 30, much less all the way to the top.

    The time factor is also something to be considered. Baam and the rest have been in the tower for a little under 10 years. The average time it takes to climb the tower is 500 years. Some special people have done it it less, like Yuri(who did it in 200 years) and Mazino (who did it in 50). So there is a lot of time for these characters to grow into real monsters. I mean, Yuri despite being considered fairly young is actually over 600 years old.
    Going off of what you said about not everyone making it. I voted 'other' on the poll and that is because I think a part of Baams, Androssis, and Koons groups will eventually come together. Some of them will defect or die off. Right now the team size seems to be about 7 but I think it gets larger because Zahard climbed with 10 warriors and other people like Grace Mirchea Luslec, so at least 12.

    No wonder I missed the point there, mocking my spelling. Such cruelty...

    I mean, I'm always grateful for corrections of spelling mistakes for come on you got to be a little more clear that that frosty.

    lol

    Well, what do you see happening with all of the groups after the Gongbang?

    Use this as an example. http://www.batoto.net/forums/topic/9...for-your-team/

    That's just a thing about making eight person teams and everything, but it has merit. I'd like to see what you'd make for a team, honestly, using those eight person rules and assuming you need at least one person in each position, except perhaps Spear Bearer.

    Moreover, do you think that the people who don't go onward with the main team will just vanish from the story, quit climbing, die, what?

    Re: Tower of God Chapter 118, 119, & 120 Review

    If I had to pick only 8, I'd go with...

    Fishermen
    Androssi, Anak, Yeon,

    Spear Bearer
    Rak, Arkraptor

    Scout
    Wangnan

    Light Bearer
    Koon

    Wave Controller
    Baam

    I actually did a break down of sorts a few weeks back about who I thought would either quit or be eliminated and who would go on.

    I'm going to take the cowards way out and just list who I think is safe (reletively) and who isn't. If I forgot somebody just assume they are in the danger zone

    Safe
    • Baam
    • Androssi
    • Anak
    • Koon
    • Rak
    • Wangan
    • Yihwa
    • Arkraptor
    • Miseng
    • Ran (the sole member of Koon's team that doesn't seem like a red shirt)

    Danger Zone
    • Rachel
    • Hatsu
    • Prince
    • Horyang (a.k.a. Teddy)
    • Leesoo (a good candidate for a heartbreaking death)
    • Serena (see above)
    • Goseng
    • Sunwoo (the greedy little blonde girl)

    I'm not saying everybody in the Danger Zone will meet their ends but I think that's the list of characters in danger.

    Hmm, I see.

    I do recall that you'd made that post.

    The team I'd take going forward would be this:

    Fishermen
    Androssi, Ran (I don't believe that Androssi and Anak come as a set and Koons seem to remain in the story, seeing as Hachuling reappeared.)

    Spear Bearer
    Novick (I'm not a fan of Rak, and apart from the Ra-Leader bit, he got a bit tiresome. Novick appears to be a good soldier, if a little quiet)

    Scout
    Hatsu, Leesoo

    Light Bearer
    Koon (I'd rather take a second Lightbearer over a second Wave Controller, but there just aren't any other Lightbearers that I believe in.)

    Wave Controller
    Baam, Laure

    There is one light bearer I think could take that spot but I don't want to say it out loud for fear of it coming true.

    (I'll give you clue, she's the most hated character in this series)

    Yeah, I know. Perhaps Rachel (Michelle Light-five ) could be, but I can't really see how any of them could forgive her.

    You pretty much summed it up. In fact, Arkraptor and Yeon are also the characters I like in Baams team, but not as much as the old ones... not yet.
    Things can change, things already changed, since I disliked most of them at the start, which is not the case anymore.
    can anyone else picture androssi ans yeon meeting for the first time and constantly fighting each other for baams attention? Androssi would make a snide remark about yeons cup size and yeon would in turn burn everyone up on accident. lol would be awesome

    Climbing the Tower worked differently then, plus there were also others like Grace who climbed with them, so...

    The teams that we've seen at the moment are all eight person teams, which is why the thread creator came up with the idea of an eight person team.
