After the contest of the second day we have this situations:
Raven Tail: 26 points (18+8).
Sabertooth: 20 points (20+0).
Lamia Scale: 20 points (16+4).
Blue Pegasus: 17 points (14+3).
Quatro Cerberus: 12 points (2+10).
Mermaid Hell: 9 points (3+6).
Fairy Tail A: 2 points (0+2).
Fairy Tail B: 2 points (1 +1).
Fairy Tail lose some points, their margin from the one who have take the seventh and eight place increase a little, while the difference between the second place and the sixth decrease.
At the same time thanks to the second place Raven Tail take the leadership of the tournament.
Anyways I believe that in the fifth day, or perhaps even in fourth day they will began to lose some battles, and perhaps also some contest (for the contest I hope that will not be when will participate Flare).
About the dragonslayer and Natsu’s speech:
I don’t like that all the dragonslayer have motion sickness, I think that would be better if only Natsu had it.
Anyways Gazille before of this chapter have not the motion sickness, infact he himself say this, so this is really strange.
But even if is strange I believe that the author has a good excuse for this (even if perhaps we will know it only after several chapter).
Anyways I don’t think that this motion sicknes in only for joke, for fun, perhaps this could be important to the plot, just as could be the fact that neither Gazille or Natsu could passed the rune in the Fairy Tail civil war.
From what says Sting seem that after the training of 3 months Gazille became a true dragonslayer, that before of it he was not a true dragonslayer yet, he missed something (also if I have not any idea of what this is).
Wendy seem fine, so perhaps even her is not a true dragonslayer, also if anyways she has Triora.
I really like Natsu speech (also if I would prefer Gazille), and in fact I thought that was strange that they would participate to the contest, also because they had not all this interesting in to be the strongest guild just said Sting here.
But perhaps because their position was not in discussion, except perhaps against Phantom Lord.
Anyways I liked that while Natsu say it we will see the reaction of the others Fairy Tail mages, the one who participate on the contest but more important those that did not participate, the one who did not lose the 7 years.
And then seem that after Natsu’s speech seem that the audience has begun to change their opinion about Fairy Tail, even if a little Fairy Tail gained some fans (I believe that at the end of the tournemals almost all the audience will be by their side).
I also think that is not so bad Sting’s reaction, because even he don’t fight for his nakama, even if he does not to want to became strongest for them this not means that he would betray them.
In fact I believe that he is like Azuma, he fight for himelf, but he will not betray or abandon his nakama like the member of the dark guild that he defeat in his introduction or like Urtear when she betrayed Hades.
Anyways after this chapter I have changed my idea about the battles (I will explain it in another post).
Anyways I have something to say about Bacchus.
I thoughyt that more alcohol he would have drunk more stronger he would become, but after this page http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/276/6 I have changed my thought.
Anyways I believe that he will fight in the battles against Elfman, and he would not have win, he would have lose or at least the battles would end with a draw.
I believed in fact Natsu would have took the last place, for this reason I believed that would be unlikely that even after the second day Fairy Tail team A would have still 0 points.
To tell the truth I still believe that this will be the result, in fact I don’t think that there will be a great difference between 0 points and 2 points.
I also thought (I wrote it in the thread of chapter 275) that Bacchus could have participate to the contest, because this could became an excuse for the result of the battles, if he would have lose or the match would be end with a draw.
In fact I thought that after the contest he could be tired, the power that he could have receive by the alcohol could be vanished.
But as I said after the frame of page 6 that I posted above I think that could be the opposite.
Ironically in fact Bacchus could lose because the alcohol that drunk against Cana could be not worn off.
In the truth at the end he seem fine so I don’t think that this will be the case, and to tell the truth I would prefer if Elfman would win or to tie with his own efferot.
I really like Risley power.
His magic is named “Gravity transformation”.
I believe that it’s similar to that of Kilo Kilo fruit that in One Piece ate Miss Valentine, she can change her weight.
The difference is that Risley change even her body shape, her appearance while Miss Valentine appearance did not changed.
If it so perhaps she could became even slimmer that her original form http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/276/9 (she is sexy even if I don’t like her hairstyle).
At the beginning I have not understand how she was able to do run in this way http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/276/6.
But after sometimes I think that I have understood.
I believe in fact that she put her weight on her foot, it’s as if she put some glue under her feet.
About the next chaper:
I have got an idea about the next chapter title.
I believe that has something to do with the woman in Sabertooth.
In fact I believe that her magic is similar to that of Erza, in fact even if perhaps there will be some differeces I think that she uses requip magic.
Hmm pretty average chapter IMO !
I am still waiting to see amazing things happening and to see FT finally getting recognition (well they made the 1st step in this chapter and people started acknowledge them but they have a long way to go ).
I didn't like that Mashima put this task exactly to Natsu . It's like he wanna test his character and make them look miserable at 1st but still i wanna see improvements . If even Natsu only got 2 points then what should we expect from the rest
As things are progressing and from that vision Charle had i'm thinking that we won't have a chance to see this tournament till the end . I think someone will stop it or it will be stopped after the palace gets destroyed ....
Chapter was sort of boring but it was there were some interesting revelations in this chapter. I really want to know what kind of magic Bacchus uses. It seems like Kurohebi (the Raven Tail dude) might have a magic ability that has something to do with snakes. His name literally means black snake.
Well, if Bacchus turns alcohol into strength and agility then that's not something unheard of. With the right amount of booze even I can do that kind of magic =)
Kurohebi looks awesome, but Flare did too and got a fail =(
After first day of tournament many people dismissed Pegasus, Mermaid and Cerberus as cannon fodder. It's good to see that they also get some highlights.
It was a decent chapter overall. I liked Natsu's speech and the humor but that was it. Glad the competition is over with, now we can get on to battles. Erza or Elfman or will someone that already went go again?
As for Sting, that was precisely why I want him to be available later in more challenging game. Beating those two in a minor child-play game wouldn't be fun. Giving them a proper beating in a real action packed game like battle royal would make a great match and bring satisfaction to the readers. Also Sting didn't need to particapte in this game to reveal DS weakness. But I feel you man. You must be broken hearted by these 3 loses in a row aren't you
And I see what you're saying, but then the Fairy Tail members did miss them over 7 years as if they were dead, some probably believed they were too. So I think seeing Natsu so determined and just like he was after years of them losing may have drove them to tears of happiness. I'm also hoping that them seeing Natsu like this again will also give them the will to become stronger again.
But don't worry about Sting, I have a feeling we will see a battle royal between him and Natsu in the battle rounds. Maybe not so soon but a bit later on and hopefully Natsu wins after a hard long battle with his OWN new found strength instead of some kind of power up. and that'as true he didn't need to participate to show it, but I think it was better to actually see with our own eyes how Sting suffers form motion sickness too, it would have been a little more boring if it were just Natsu and Gajeel and then Sting, Rogue and Laxus were in the crowd like "We get that too", well that's only in my opinion anyway
And Yes! I can't lie it's horrible having to see Fairy Tail lose by so much, especially since we've been used to them begin a winning Guild since the beginning of the Manga haha, especially with Jellal's and Lucy's lose! Although I have to admit Jellal's battle had me in tears at the end, of laughter that is haha
I think this competition only serves as a minor part of the arc. The major part, which is something related to charle's premonition would be more epic that this. We could careless about the result of the tournament even if FT1 and FT2 would end up at the bottom of the league I don't care. I wouldn't be surprised if Mashima let Laxus lose in a lamer way than Gerard
Just wanted to let you know that I finally started Fairy Tail last week and that I'm now up-to-date with that manga!
I enjoyed it a lot!
So, you'll probably see me around here from now on too.
I hope we'll see the competition to the last day.
The S-Class exam was cut short before the end, so it would be nice if we could see all of this competition before the evil guys do their stuff...
I was expecting a fight between Bacchus and Erza/Elfman but the chapter was completely dedicated to the chariot race. I think this chapter was used to show us how strong Bacchus is even without alchohol. But it was a let down since the fight did not happen.
Hey guys, since I'm new on the fairy tail forum, I don't know when to expect spoilers and manga release.
When are we usually getting spoilers for Fairy Tail?
as long as mangastream releases the chapter we get the scan before spoilers, lately it has been released early friday, but it used to always be very early saturday. I can't say what specific time friday but keep your eyes open on fridays when you wake up in the morning.
