I think the answer is much more simple than that.
In earthland people can replenish their magic if they rest. The magic comes from themselfs. In Edolas the magic comes from an outside source, the lachryma crystals (except for the exceed that are similar in that way to the earthlanders). Like any natural source that is being greedily used more and more it became rare.
This one is working for me http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kz=840121901
awesome chapters.... finally we get to see what grandine and metallicana look like....
Wendy's hair is blue?
Wasn't it black?
For colour pages, it's always been blue or a similar shade, as far as I recall. It looks better in black, though.
So those are Metalicana and Grandine? Well damn they're ugly. Though Igneel's no beauty either, but he's more... traditional.
Well I can say i didn't see a few things coming. Metalicana having a smooth metal outlook I thought it would be more like metal scale look. Grandine having feather like apperance I didn't really think on how she would look. The three dragonslayer roar awesome.
Igneel looks good, no problem with him. Though of course he's much much larger.
Metalicana looks like that famous dragon from Yu-Gi-Oh! and that's too bad cause I've always hated that form looks like an alien from the alien movies just that it has wings.
Grandine doesn't even resemble a dragon more like a bird thing, hehe
Anyway this seems to be a pretty neat chapter, no unnecessary and spontaneous power up by Natsu. Just plain team work, great!
Metalicana does look like Blue-Eyes White Dragon. But this chapter does look good. Since this battle is over I wonder how Mystogan is going to negate all magic. It probably going to take a couple of chapters to do it.
dead link for me at work. so I assume they all do the dragon roar, that's emotion infused and we see after images of each dragon that taught them.
I think it's time for the *insert Yu-gi-oh Dragon names* joke here, and I will start: Blue Eyes White Metal Dragon, Spear-End Dragion, and Harpie's Blessing of Dragon, thank you. On to the main topic: I am so glad that this fight is over, not because it was bad, because I just wanted to see the face of Faust when he gets owned by team Dragon Slayer, and they showed it. Now I can die happy. His expression will be forever engraved in my mind as: Whoop, I wet mahself! OoO. I hope the fans don't complain on the fact that Natsu did the finishing blow again.
