It is so interesting to read Fairy Tail with an artwork from a different artist other than Mashima-sensei himself. Shirato's drawing is pretty nice, I wonder if he is Mashima's student or one of his assistants. I really like his work. The very first cover page has already impressed me. I hope this new author will have his own manga soon. He surely has the potential. Who knows he may be the next generation of the "Top-three"?
Gray's story has a good start with snowy mountains. Those animals were nicely drawn, looked very natural. Similarly to Fairy Tail Zero, Gray has a chibi look which made him stood out and his half nakedness seemed to always create some embarrassment somehow. Even the adults also have to emphasise it? It was quite funny that Gray fainted while trying to cast magic. i guess his energy was totally depleted. Gray's resolve might have propelled him to become stronger.
The guild, Chrono Sound, sounded interesting. That little girl that Gray had encountered looked like a sweet girl. Gray's making of the Ice Flower looked so attractive. Nano Leaf was an unusual name. In fact, the funniest looking guy was Nez Booms. Hmmm.. we have a creative artist here. Even magic skills were amazingly good.
The final page was probably the most interesting part of the entire chapter. Ur and Gray's relationship was also revealed.
What an intense ending! Makes you wanna punch the runt's head. hahaha!

So... no releases of the omakes this week? I thought we were getting them every week until they were done.
I thought it wouldn't be published so soon like a weekly issue. A monthly or quarterly issue seems more reasonable.
Second chapter of Fairy Tail Zero:
Loved the game Mavis had with Yuriy. Reminds me a bit of No Game No Life.
So Mavis is stuck in her 13 year old form? Wonder how that happened. And I thought Zeira died.
A beautiful cover page with sweet little Mavis.
She was as cheerful and forgiving as she could be. It was amazing how the two little kids, Mavis and Zeira of 6 years of age survived all those time on an island.
The game that was played was so tricky. Yury Dreyar was such a naughty guy. But it seemed like Mavis' confidence in winning the game left him sweating out in his pants.
An interesting ending that has left us with guessing on our own till the game continues.
Mavis was, unsurprisingly, a handful. I didn't expect their first interaction to be as opponents, but it fits with FT's manner of doing things. Should be interesting to see how Mavis claims the win.
I thought zeira had died the last chapter. I wonder if there is a chance that there might be something a tad more sinister going on. I don't mean like her being evil or anything but her being effectively dead. Perhaps she is imaginary or perhaps she is a ghost like mavis today. Something else, seeing her current appearance I think we will see mavis die young in the next few chapters. Perhaps the tenrou jade has what we know as the 3 great fairy magics or something and mavis gets a hold of that. On the other hand it is plausible mavis is not properly dead currently.
I was surprised by the fact that Purehito and the others are/were treasure hunters, I wonder how mavis learned how to use magic tho
Considering everything, odds are she picked it up from a book. There are other cases of people learning magic from books and mavis seems to be exceptional and a bookworm herself. There is no one to teach her and I doubt her presence alone would warrant the creation of a guild if she wasn't exceptional.
This is why i love Fairy Tail.
We would never get this kind of background in other manga.
Fairy Tail Zero is very good. I would love to read more chapters about their timeline.
Second Ice Trail Chapter:
Gray sure keeps getting mixed up in all sorts of things.
I actually like Five Bridge Family's design. They look quite fierce. I wonder how a little Gray would deal with those guys.
I think Zeira probably did die. Maybe mavis conjured her spirit with magic, in the same way that all the members of Cait shelter were illusions.
If she isn't an illusion, it seems extremely weird that she wouldn't have joined the other 4 in founding the fairy tail guild.
