i don't think ultear is not really dead, maybe she might be in a coma, i mean if ultear dies who will take care meldy ? and who will help jellal in the guild of his...
Quite predictable move for Ultear, but it really sucks how her life and sacrifice would only cost 1 minute of time.
Maybe the Time Ark would require a really strong magic power in order to be activated.
Well I also do hope that Ultear isn't dead. I mean, her final moments weren't able to sink into me. it felt kinda rushed.
Another thing I've noticed, Ultear has the most number of hairstyles in this manga XD
i believe the magic she used consumes a certain amount of time that is determined by the outcomes it reverses as opposed to the value of the users time or power of their magic
ultears "minute" saved several people that she was allied with (inderctly or directly) in a short period of time
so i guess what im saying is the spell consumes time based on quality of time as opposed to quantity of time
like "ultears life was worth saving these peoples lives" not "ultears life was worth one minute because she was a naughty girl"
I don't mind Urtear dying. But I do want to see her know that her sacrificed is not in vain and the minute she traded her life for is the start of what allows human to start their counterattack. That would be the most important part to me.
Time for some napkin maths :
1 day = 1440 minutes
1 year = 525600 minutes
So if Crocus has 500000 inhabitants (which is a reasonable guess) and she used her magic for everyone in the city (no need to use it further, only Crocus is in danger for now), she lost only 1 year of her lifetime.
I think she'll survive it. She probably could only revert time by 1 minute because she didn't have enough magical power do do more.
Hmm, my bet on one minute is different.
I bet, that by the end of next chapter, we will see some sinister figure(-es) approaching Ultears corpse.
"My Time" might simply refer to "Time i have left".
She might have died within that one minute by someones hand.
Ultear, best female character after Mirajane. Gone but not forgotten
Retarded.. Rather than wasting a minute why didn't she get back to fighting one of the dragons?.. Nothing has changed! She's probably one of the top Mages there but decides to die on a whim for what????? No-one has made any progress in their fights and if anything how is it possible they have enough time to grieve when Gray only had a second to let his guard down.. Most pathetic death scenes I've ever seen
I believe that Ultear would be ok after this, though would suffer from using Last Aegis.
I get the feeling that the Last Aegis is a sort of magic which actually has its own consciousness and thoughts. What i meant to say was that when Ultear used it, the magical power of Last Aegis judged that only one minute worth of time was required for the present situation to change in the favor of the Mages fighting against the Dragons and there was no need for it to use up Ultear's life anymore than that amount.
In short, its sort of judgmental type of magic (sort of like Fairy Law), but instead of the users feeling it works based on the requirement of the present situation and the castors will.
If the whole world is set back for a minute, of course the dragons are affected by it as they're part of that world as it does no harm to dragons at all. Just like Fairy Shield was able to block Acnologia's dragon breath. But none of Ultear's other fighting skills she has shown so far up to this point could harm a dragon as she is not a Dragon Slayer. No magic other than Dragon Slayer magic can harm dragons. That's the rule.
And loosening Mirai Rogue's influence on the remaining 6 dragons wasn't within her powers either.
That one minute was enough to save Macao, Gray, Droy and going by the last pages, Gajeel and Bacchus also from either certain death or taking heavy damage from an attack.
And of course, it's nowhere in the chapter that setting back time for one minute was the counterattack already. It's only the beginning of the counter attack like a starting shot. By gaining one minute, she opened the door for the counterattack which is now to begin next chapter.
Ultear deserved half of this chapter and all of those final moments to get some closure to her life.
Uhhhh so apparently Chelia has gone missing.
Wonder where she went off to...
