....sigh. Why does everyone think Natsu is going to defeat hades? and why is crying a btch move for him? so crying because you think everyone you love and hold dear is going to die because you are/feel powerless is wrong? grow up people. Wait for next chapter before jumping to such conclusions. Hes doing his last charge vs Hades. They cant run so hes going down fighting. This chapter was 100% fine to me
I would say this is a rather decent chapter although there is a part which I find rather illogical.
The good parts:
1) more relevations about layla
2) hades's moves are drawn in an awesome way
3) the cheesiness wasn't as bad as erza's fight with the tree guy. I kinda like the nakama bond in this chapter. It has always been a recurring theme in this manga but this chapter didn't overplay this theme to a great extent like the others.
the bad/illogical part:
First off, to clear the air, (in my opinion) when natsu said that they should face their fears, he meant more than just facing Hades. There has a deeper meaning to it- facing their fears of knowing that everything they do will be futile and even with this knowledge, they should do something. CHoosing not to fight and run away is not an option, it's not like they have elsewhere to go. Could Hades have let them off? If they're going to get killed by Hades, they might as well fight him or at the very least, try to, rather than sit down and cry.
The only illogical part is them throwing a powerless natsu who couldn't even move at Hades. So much for the nakama speech. I can't believe they just threw their very own nakama(who btw is physically drained and weak at the moment) at him! To a certain extent, it seems like a senseless and stupid potential sacrifice of their teammate. In war, you don't just throw someone who's injured at the enemy! Why can't they just attack Hades all at once? Either way they're going to die, might as well die fighting as a team than throw an injured natsu to be at the battlefront.
I really hope next chapter is about Lucy. I'm pretty tired of Natsu acting like...like...superman o.O
I doubt Natsu will beat Hades. I really hope Hades doesn't get beaten in this arc still =/
Mashimas other great work Rave Master we didnt get to see the end boss up untill over the half of the story so i think FT will go a long long time beyond this. And i Think Zeref will be more developed then his Rave counterpart ^^ Im not in for comparing the mangas but there must be a huge link between Natsu and Zeref just like done in Rave. Im really looking forward to how it all works between those 2.

Lucy is already out of magic, she is not about to summon anything. It'd be interesting if capricorn shows up using his own magic though, we never actually saw him leave the island.
Chapter is out!
This chapter is making me puke.
Mashima: "Hey guess what! Hades has some thingamajig now which is the source for his power (which he lets protect by 08/15 guys), and when someone destroys that thing he gets totally weak! Genius!"
Who didn't see this coming though tbh lol. At least Natsu didn't feel full power hades on his own.
