ahhhhhhh shit!!!!! great chapter, Ivan seems to be keeping tabs on everything, and the revelation of the "true" dragon slayers is pretty absurd! Those bastards, I hope they get their asses kicked by Natsu and co. Also found Juvia's love triangle absolutely hilarious, I was on the floor about how she still thinks Leon is in love with Gray
So, seems like Sting and Rogue both have the same type of magic, considering Rogue said they killed their master.
Methinks they'll end up as the main antagonists for the arc (Sabretooth, that is), then Gazille, Laxus and Mirajane (along with their posse's) can swoop in at the right time to save some fodder... probably, even though I don't want the fodder to be saved, I want them to fight!
Don't know how Raven tail is part of all of this, maybe they're in cahoots with Sabretooth, and possibly the evil king (although they could just have subdued/killed him)
Hmm, so those 2 never had met Natsu and Gazille. I wonder who their dragon was though.
Wendy seems like she'll get into trouble. That or she'll meet the king xD
Those 2 killed their parent? Wow, srsl they killed the dragon? Or maybe they're just bluffing and making Natsu getting pissed off so they can fight him.
I have a feeling that Acnologia will appear on this arc and those 2 will be beaten to a pulp by him I hope he does
lol...there goes my dream of Mashima going outside the circle of "5"...., but I don't want to get hasty...but this chapter got me thinking....in how this arc might turn to be....
Imagine the other guys did not return, because they were captured or something...that would be a little bit ....?....boring .....
I vote "BAD" for this chapter really...it did not excite me or anything....and I don't look forward for this tournament ...
a part of my theory came true : artificial lacryma + dragon parents
another theory is
dragons leave their human child because to become a true DS you must kill your parents that's why there are no dragons anymore and there's just a handful of DS on the planet either they died trying to kill their parent dragon or the dragon left them
Juvia is finally cute again. I love her style now even more than the one before edolas.
Chapter itself was interessting. Laxus and the other powerhouses not beeing here yet means, the tournement will end in a desaster and they will show up to save the day.
juvia made me laugh this chapter, especially how she didn't notice gray was fighting with leon to keep her in the guild. As for the dragonslayers i feel they're going to get a real butt kicking from Natsu. They killed a dragon together not alone and well it was their 'parent'...thats not cool.
"Taking whats mine" eh Grey?
Can't shake the SSJ vibe on...sting was it? Not a bad chapter felt like forever since we got one for some reason. Those two are pretty damn arrogant...If Zeref is afraid of the dragon well...they'll get a wake up call later in the arc i suppose.
Oh my god, the new cover is amazing.
Well, it was a fun chapter after all. A few things worth commenting on. First, obviously the hybrid DS thing. First of all it is bullcrap that this guys killed their dragons. A dragon is a stupidly powerful creature, there is no way this actually happened. Why would they even need to kill their dragons for that? Is dragon lachrima taking straight out of dragons or something? Worth noting about hybrid dragon slayers, I maintain that natsu is currently one. I believe the reason for which he is able to use lightning flame currently is because laxus accidentally transfered some of his dragon lachrima to natsu.
Second bold - i second this idea!
Imagine Natsu receiving Lighting lachrima + opening his second vessel.
About second magic vessel. I was thinking that it may allow Natsu to use Godslayer flames (don't ask how, plot hole no jutsu). One vessel stores normal flames and another one - black flames, in addition to lighting lachrima.
The chapter was good.
I liked the suspense and the build up of the atmosphere before the Tournament. It's actually interesting to know why everyone was ordered to come back before 12? Maybe it's something important? It might be something connected to that eveil magical presense during the Tournament or with that creature that was looking at Wendy and Charlie.
It's also interesting to learn about those two new Dragonslayers. They should be quite strong if they both have not only powers of normal Dragonslayers, but also lacrima in them. I believe they might be at the level of Luxus or even stronger by now, but I don't believe that they managed to kill their Dragon parent even combined. Firstly, because Dragon is insanely strong and second is because they should have been kids back then and they didn't reach the pinnacle of their power at that point.
I actually believe those two are trying to provoke Natsu to make him eager to fight them before or during the Tournament. So for now there are two posibilities conserning them:
1. They are evil and might be a part of something bigger like Sabertooth or maybe even bigger group of baddies.
2. They might want to look bad, but actually at the end they will be at least look like Gajeel, while at some point the main antogonists of this Arc will come.
The thing I also want to see is the King. Who is he and if he is good or bad. That's interesting, especially after Edolas arc. But as for me repeating the King's role as a baddie would be not only repeatative, but actually even somewhat boring.
Also... it looks like Elza wasn't affected by Ultear's magic. So it really might be that she had already opened her second magic container.
P.S. I don't know if it's only me, but I think this time Mangastream had a bad quality of translation, particulary in gramar.
