Well... I expected something better rather than good ol dragons fighting among themselves and some of them teaching humans so they can help him etc etc
I was expecting something more better or dangerous, I don't know, something like Rave... I just find it a bit disappointing, although it is still too early to judge it, because it is still too early to reveal the plot totally now
On another hand, I truly wasn't expecting Acnologia being a human before and transformed by Zeref, I was always under the assumption that Acnologia was like the boss of Zeref seeing his reaction, but hey, this gives at least more importance to Zeref than before
Another thing that picked up my interest was that the Dragon said about humans turning to dragons the further a DS goes down the path of DS magic, could it be that Dragon Force is nothing but the first step toward that and not the ultimate form ? But then again Dr Tenma look alike refuted that theory so...
Overall it was a good chapter, lots of infos after nearly 300 chapters with nothing but questions more than answers
look at the bottom panel. i am now convinced that the guy with the scarf fighting acnologia is igneel.
Acnologia was originally a man and his dragon slayer power was so strong that he turned into a dragon. I think it is the same way with all the current dragons, they had to become powerful enough to beat acnologia, thereby turning them into dragons.
I think igneel and the other good dragons realized that acnologia was planning something, so they each took students to train them for something big was coming up....another Dragon King Festival.
I think a few characters are going to die this arc, including markorov and jellal. I dont think wendy was wrong about someone dying. since she had the vision before the the last arc, we thought a death was going to happen on the island, but it will haoen here.
I agree with the assumption that Igneel was possibly a human turned dragon. It gives a better explanation of how and why a Dragon can be so caring for a human child. If this revelation holds true, that would mean the entire Dragon race can be repopulated by teaching humans Dragon Slayer Magic. It would also mean that Dragon's are not truly at the top of the food chain if a human can become a dragon. I wonder if this is all related to that One Magic thing as well as Lumien Histoire of how any magic can become another magic. I also wonder if this makes the Fairy Tail Guild some sacred gate keepers to the future of world surviving (Most likely)
Well, for next chapter we'll probably get a little chat between Yukino and Lucy. Some more revelations about the Eclipse cannon and maybe a quick look at Sabertoothe's situation. All around a good chapter.
EDIT: I knew I saw that image with the horns and screaming before. Always gotta be careful with Mashima.
You never know when he just might get Ya.

As we know the dragon king festival will happen again soon enough. I think we are mere chapters away from seeing igneel, grandine and metalicana....
Does anyone else think that because humans can become dragons that likewise, dragons can become humans? And that the reason behind Natsu and Gajeel not being able to exit the no one over 80 barrier is because that they were actually dragons reborn as humans? Maybe Natsu and Gajeel as dragons were critically injured, and the only way to save them was to turn them human causing a loss of memory, and in order for them to return to being dragons, Igneel and the other dragons that raised them taught them Dragon Slayer magic so that eventually they will rejoin them.
Also, the only person who can perform the magics to turn human to dragon, and likewise dragon to human, was Zeref, explaining his own connection to Natsu.
Perhaps it's a stretch, but I think that would be a logical explanation for some of the mystery surrounding the Dragon Slayers.
Dark Aura = Evil = Demons
Since Dragon King Festival was mentioned as "Where Demons, Humans and Dragons fight" i guess that GS magic is nothing more that Demon Slaying magic, because demons simply use darker versions of elements.
Only thing i have to say about this chapter...
Good evening guys and girls , i read mangahelpers forums every week but i didnt had an account since 5 mins ago :P
FT seems to become more and more interesting every week. I voted epic for this chapter , at least we saw a dragon speaking and explaining things even if i wanted to see the things more complicated.
I am reading again and again the chapter trying to understand who the dragon leader of the dragon " rebels " ( the dragons that wanted to live with humans) is. I am pretty sure the dragon is not Igneel. Check out also what is Igneel is saying here

that was nice... especially the part where my theory about dragon slayer magic actually will transform the user to dragons. did not thought of acnologia being the king of the dragons, but i suppose Igneel and the rest thought natsu and the other dragon slayers to defeat acnologia!
Although. I must say why Igneel is here wondering if humans can exceed dragons?
Obviously they can, Acknologia did....
