First of all, Lamy vs Lisanna... Goofball battle... That bunny eared demon is just here for the lulz right?
Mira did something useful! Destroying the whole lab so at least those demons can't revive anymore. At least for now.
Sayla is badass. Her released form looks amazing and her strength is... Wow. Who is going to beat her? The rest of FT is kinda busy...
On the other hand we have the (probably second in command). I hope he is not a vessel for END like Brain was for Zero.
END being someone we know might be interesting. But I do hope it is something else.
It's more likely that the story needed an enemy for Makarov/Silver.
Silver is still the strongest one shown, because it took him no effort to defeat Natsu and he acts differently from other demons.
Also take a note that Ki-Su isn't attacking Grey which is indicating that Grey and Silver are indeed the same person.
There are only 2 Demons left to show their power.
Just how many more times Mashima gonna paid dust to Mirajane? She hasn't got the spotlight ever since she fought Freed. And that's YEARS ago. She's sabotaged when fighting Azuma, and her battle with Jenny can hardly be called a 'battle'.
Did Mashima hate Mirajane so much?
It's so obvious that Natsu & Lucy gonna save the day again by beating Sayla in the next chapter.
So, to most of you guys that still have hope that Mirajane somehow will defeat Sayla, i can only say that don't hope too much for it. I'm a big Mirajane fan and it's just hurts me to see that Mashima just won't give her the spotlight.
Anyway, let's throw a plethora of scenarios which can result from this fight:
A- Mirajane powers up by consuming Sayla's demon particles to increase her takeover, she beats Sayla but runs out of control needing Lisanna to cool down.
B- Natsu intervenes with the aid of Lucy's Capricorn to neutralize Sayla's control, he beats Sayla using Fire-Thunder DS mode.
C- Same as above but Natsu is unable to defeat Sayla until Lisanna uses takeover on Natsu, becoming a dragon girl and using Unison Raid with him to defeat Sayla.
D- Death scenario, where the combined efforts of Natsu, Mirajane, Lucy and Lisanna are unable to defeat Sayla but Lucy awakens as E.N.D. and destroys her.
Good chapter overall.
I must say again, that I really don't like Mira's strongest demon form.
She's sexy in every form but that one... The metallic thing around her face makes her look like she has a beard...
I really don't like it... I wish she looked more like Sayla in her final form (although Sayla legs looks pretty weird...)
The guild leader name "Marde" is the same as the slang Quebec (French Canada) word for Shit.
So that was pretty funny!
A - I guess that is the most likely one. In the end she will gain a new form and even more power. I would like that.
B - I feel like Capricorn is only a plot device that helps Lucy to connect to Layla. Furthermore Human Subordination was Zoldeos magic if I'm not completely wrong. It wasn't Capricorns.
C - That would be rather cool too, I give you that. But not as likely as A.
D - I can't see this happening. Even IF END is Lucy, I can't imagine it would happen that soon.
Defeating Sayla will probably have something to do with that eye on her hand. Otherwise it wouldnt make any sense to show it right before the kamehameha
Sayla has always been my favorite since the introduction of Tartaros.
WOW!! Just.. I.. Like.. Her.. aoisdoiasmdoianfoasdoshfosjdoisfoindsofodisnfoisdnfoanfoidniofndaiofna
Wow, I never thought mira would get defeated like that.... Well, she seems to be out at least. Odds are she is going to pull of something by putting her life on the line or something of the sort. It really is a shame mira never got second origin though, even she seems to lag behind erza nowadays. Still, it is very surprising she got defeated like that. I wonder if she perhaps has some sort of demon form which she has not yet mastered and will have to in order to win. The point made in the chapter was that a human imitating demons could not really win so logically it implies there should be more to her abilities. Perhaps the situation is that she can control her powers but has not taken the steps to fully turn into a demon. If she turns into a demon like the tartarus guys then it stands to reason that doing so has some inherent risk to it. Or maybe she can use the tentacles which were transforming her and use them to fully turn herself into a proper demon... and then take over that. And she will stand on the same ground as the tartarus guys a demon.
So a demon exists in the form and imagine of good old zeref... whats the deal with that? I guess the biggest issue here is that there are two more powerful demons to look out for. The king of hell adds a new level of danger to everything, it is a hidden enemy amongst people they are already having trouble defeating.
I guess the light refers to lumen histoire.... I am a tad surprised that it would be meant for when they fought tartarus though. there is at least one more arc against zeref, I would have thought it would be relevant then.
I'm really going to be pissed if Elfman or someone else butts in to help Mira, really. Its been since Freed, that she had a glorious, shiny moment. Other than that, she was kinda here... and there, doing like, not much. Which is a shame since it kinda taints her position as an S class mage. Plus everyone did shake after hearing that "Demon Mira" was near, so gawd, Mashima. Badass moment now, please? :c
Shayla was beast (literally xD) and so was her "awakened" form, really badass. As for if any for the question that if any other demon didnt remove the limit and thats why they went out easily, i'm just gonna say this is her "demon" form, and she happens to be a tough foe. Well, her curse in fact was kinda OP back then, so i'm not surprised if her going full power mode is also a big deal. Just like Ezel's demond form could be that armor, the blades, etc. Not sure about Franmalth, lol.
Marde Guille (Dat name) sounds to me like a second in command rather than E.N.D's body, or sealed form. About who E.N.D could be... God knows. D:
