Nice chapter! I'm glad that Fairy Tail doesn't go the direct confrontation route with rampage mode on.
The tactical way is always the way I support more, even though we all know that this isn't going to last long with Natsu.
Still don't like the fact that Genmas status remains unknown. This manga really lacks long term interesting antagonists. Nearly everyone who appeared to be a promising was defeated/killed in a pathetic way imo.
Fairy Tails entrance on the other side was epic as always. Laxus, Erza, Gajeel, Gray, Juvia, what do you want more (since I don't like Natsu that much)? Sting surely lost his sense of reality, if he thinks they got lucky while facing the likes of Laxus, Erza and Gajeel. Can't see anyone giving Laxus a run for his money at this point.
It's a shame that Gildarts is literally forced to stay out of these affairs, otherwise... you know what I mean...
Just my thoughts;
I agree with most people saying it's Angel, though it looks almost too obvious it's her. It may be her because Lucy is stuck with the younger one, when previously she fought the older one. A bit of irony? That and the point raised that Sora = Sky and Angel was most likely a codename like the rest of OS guild. Angel would fit perfectly if her real name was Sorano.
But other than that, I actually like Juvia in the team. I think she might be underestimated for a lot of people because she's usually the ditz that fails because of simple things...but hardly ever do you see her fight seriously. She WAS an S-class in her previous guild (though that entire guild was basically smashed by FT)...but I think she can be better than just a ditz. She's pretty unpredictable and I'm hoping that they replaced Natsu with her for a good reason. That, and she was nominated for the S-class trials so she did get recognized by Makarov himself.
I really hate Minerva right now. :l But I fear that she actually might be one of those strong antagonists working for the dark guilds that take a while to defeat. (That, or she gets utterly defeated by Erza or something. Which I'm hoping. xD)
...AndMira is finally get action, and I think everyone is loving that!
The last name is not a problem, she is supposedly a cousin of Sherry which can easily be manipulated with memory magic and the fact that the Guild Master even mentioned that Sherry is far from no where near her Chelia's level.
Also the fact that the last time we saw God Slayer Magic, it was from the dark guild that also worshipped Zeref. RIP Zancrow
Anything is possible
Was it really necessary for Mashima to draw Ichiya's nose in the shape of a d*** with a a smiley face on it?:notamused
Aside from that that most interesting part of the chapter were probably all of the new outfits. Everything else was kind of predictable to a certain extent.
I just thought of something.
Ice and water work well together and metal ,water and, Ice are all very concuctive with lightning. So I forsee a 4 way elemetal combo with Erza doing her own thing or somehow joining in like with the thunder emporess armor. All together, it seems like a perfect team once the fire(natsu) is gone.
I like Rogue's new outfit. Sting on the other hand looks like a mix of Lyon and that memory make dude.
As the master I would have added Fried to Natsu's team (and maybe Elfman).
T__T This page broke my heart... seriously... ;(
I hate Sabertooth but whoa... poor Frosch... Q__Q
I still can't believe Lector is dead, Mashima! >__< Minerva "saved" him... it has to be...
/EMOTIONAL POST OVER, sorry. :D
Yukino's sister is either Angel or Kagura. Angel.. we know why; Kagura's hair looks similar only different color, ribbon in her hair, and she wants to take revenge on Jellal. Yukino and Kagura don't recognize each other it seems, but I'm not completely damning that possibility.
pretty obvious who the girl in the hood is.
either lucy or that other FT girl or yukino that came from the future.
Ah - I KNEW I've seen the hair of Yukinos sister before, but I couldn't remember, but your right! Its Angel!!!
I defenitly think, she's Yukinos sister, so my theory with the hooded girl is totaly illogical. xD
I hope we finde out soon engough who this hooded girl is - it's making me crazy not knowing that!
This chapter was really good, but what i don't get is why Sting and Rogue are still in Sabertooth after what happened maybe Minerva talk to them into saying cause she might have a plan that needs there help. the final day of the tournament is here and i must say Sabertooth looks like there rearing to go and got lucky that Natsu isn't there said by Sting himself, but he has other matter to attend to lol.
Everyone has someone to go for in the final day, lets see what Gray can do know, i just love the way how there all came in with there new outfits also i was wondering why Juvia and not Mirajane was sub for Natsu, then i see she helping Natsu with the rescue of Lucy. But all and all i can't wait to see this final day damn it's going to be one epic game.
Why can't they show the Mysterious girl yet we all know it's Lucy or Levy
Just one thing i wonder if Yukino's sister is Angel of oracion seis the hair look so close well let just see

All I want to say is that Gellal would do better than Juvia, more skills, more drama with mermaid heel.. And yet he hasn't been shown at all, he could also be good as rescue team leader, but I guess he'll have some other good role, since he've met the hooded girl
Substituting in Juvia makes a lot of sense. She has fought against Grey's magic before, so she knows what to expect from Leon. It also allows those two to work together as a combo to produce even bigger attacks. Her water attacks can also be boosted from our favorite Lightning Dragon. Spread out a pond and he'll zap a whole team away with no effort. She was already close to Gazille from their days in Phantom together, and Erza's respect for her has grown steadily sine the Tower of Paradise. She saw how serious Juvia can be when they were in the S-Class test and Meredy said she was going to kill Grey (wait, was here name Meredy? I am blanking on everybody tonight)
Oh. And I guess she is still considered a super powerful mage in her own right. I guess that shouldn't be overlooked. She was one of the people who was up to join the ranks of the S-Classes in the guild.
If anything, I'm upset that Lucy's rescue team was so small. Of course Natsu is going, Wendy can be there to heal, and Mira provides somebody who can be a powerhouse and a stealth ninja. Panther will probably also get a battle in. I'd actually love it if all three cats teamed up to beat an opponent. Charle needs a win under her belt. But what about the rest of the guild? It would have been a great twist if somebody outside the Tenrou Island group was included. Maybe Gerard, Ultear, and Meredy will join in on that fight now that they've identified the strange power.
i think yukino's sister is angel, they look very similar o_o
