First epic chapter.
this made me love fairy tail even more so many twist and turn in the Manga. Anyway if Zeref really turned a human DS into a dragon then why in the first place what did he have to gain. And it seems that if a DS kills a Dragon and bath in it's blood you become more dragon like i wonder is this why Sting and Rogue say that they killed there Dragons to become true Dragon Slayer... hmmmm. And why still no info on that mystery woman damn!.
so now we acnologia was a human who is now a dragon who beat gildarts so easily and natsu is currently still weaker than him . im excited at how powerful natsu will become in order to defeat acnologia and perfaps with his defeat the rest of the dragons might come out of hiding and claim natsu as their new dragon king
I don't think Zeref is the one that turned Acnologia into a Dragon.
I really think that Zeref was and is a good guy.
I think he might have been a dragon that turned into a human.
Maybe, he actually turned Acnologia into a Dragon and himself into a human by some transfer magic.
Maybe he used the same technique on Natsu, Gajeel and Wendy...
That would explained a few things for sure...
Anyway it is possible that Mashima was inspired by this legend.
About the Acnologia/Zeref issue, I thinkt hat the two must have had some sort of relationship; otherwise, why Acnologia would go to him in order to become a full-fledged dragon?
I think the thing that held Natsu and Gajeel in that barrier was their clothing, Natsu might be 20 years old something but his scarf given by Ingneel came from 400 years ago and hence he got rejected.
The concept of parallel dimensions and timelines is already present in FT, Mashima has experience and affinity for that theme, it wouldn't be bad if there was a broken world full magic version of Earthland and Eclipse will inadvertedly bring it forth.
Mashima has proved his writing capabilities in that area, he can reuse that theme if played right.
Heck, there were even crossovers with RM, what prevents FT from being another dimension/timeline from the RM multiverse?
Not to mention we've seen two demons he's created, one who rampantly destroys things, one who steals the souls of everyone around it.
We know why DS's were created, for the purpose of helping win the Dragon Civil War. So that begs the question why are DS's still being "created"? The war is clearly over and on top of that DS's basically led to the near extinction of all Dragons. So why produce more individuals like that, especially since we just learned that Sting and Rogue "killed" their Dragons. It makes no sense to create beings that are meant to and often do kill you.
Weird scenario, what if sting and rogue's dragons for some plot related reason asked to be killed? It doesn't seem like sting and rogue are evil per say (just assholes) and igneel does seem kinda familiar with the others. Or perhaps their dragons were just on acknologias side....
one person was questioning god magic and i might answer that question. It might be derived from dragon slayers. Humans learnt magic from dragons and these dragonslayers then taught that magic to other humans but was named god magic. Dragons are considered godly anyways and the name stuck. However I do have one question.
as for acalogia being human and killing humans makes sense. all villians destroys all weak people so he can make only his henchmen survive, he seemed to want to get rid of the competition in my opinion
my question is that how does natsu and lucy fit into all of this though in my opinion natsu is exhibitin a unique ability the ability to take on other elements it might be unique to him alone.
i wonder what story is Arcadios trying to concoct to convince fairy that he working for "the greater good." even though when know there is ulterior motive. i reckon what he might do is destroy zeref to control acnologia for his own gain. i dunno whether acnologia is the dragon king....?
I just thought of something. I mean I think that I have an idea on what could occur when the Eclipse gate is going to be opened.
I think it's a device that is going to summon Acnologia and the dragons that opose him (most likely Igneel, Metalicana and Grandeeney, who I belive belong to the human coexistence fraction) and restart the Dragon King festival - after all another all out war between dragons vs dragons + DS is definitely going to "change the world".
Now, the reason why I think that's going to be the case is:
1.) Igneel's statmemnt when the fight between Sting and Rouge is about to start, that the Dragon King Festival is going to occur soon
2.) Future Levy's scar, which might be something done by a claw, and we know that dragons have claws.
3.) The mysterious girl's note from chapter 300, that suggests that there is a connection between the dragon king festival and the Eclipse plan.
As for Arcadois, well he might mistakenly belive that the Eclipse gate is going to summon Zeref, or be something that is going to kill him (which, I doubt, since Zeref has said that the only thing that can bring an end to his existence is Natsu.)
