Well, people you tend to forget that not only power of feelings is ridiculous thing, but also it doesn't work for everyone. It only works for Fairy Tail. That's why it's even more ridiculous.
If in this manga you should just like your friends so much, that no matter what you will still win, then in this final round FT should have put Romeo against the entire Sabertooth and Jura at the same time. If you care about your friends, you will still win.
Without this crazy illogical thing Fairy Tail manga would be one of the best out there.
About new guys... well, they look stylish and may even make Resque Team beasy for several minutes. The only thing is, when the Power of Feelings will be turned on... Because at that moment either Natsu or Mira will one-shot all of them.
About Arcadios... No matter what he seems a bad guy to me. He seems to be one of those Zeref's zealots...
those new enemies that was in the dungeon are sent by either the princess or the beard dude/wounded guy to make Lucy summon her spirits
i think that the door that natsu and co. saw (the door that absorbed natsu's magic power) needed the stellar spirits to open them and not Lucy
Lucy can summon multiple stellar spirits so maybe she can use all of them at ones
yukino being the edolas lisanna is nice assumption expect for the fact that they cannot use magic on their own.
future macth ups erza vs kagura , juvia vs minerva , laxus vs orga , jura vs sting and rougue, lyon vs gray that leaves gajeel fighting with other remaining memebers. i mostly think fairy tail and lamia scale to be in the first two places than sabertooth who have nothing but those 5 guys to rely on .and all other guys from st are nothing but weak as we saw yukino and their master is one guy obssesed with power.in these seven years they only raised to the top guild only because of these games which require exactly five guys to compete.
i really want to see kagura going all out and how powerful she is and now that she knows jellal is in FT erza being close to jellal this time she will unsheathe her sword and fight seriously. and i donot really want the sting and rogue fighting FT as they are already defeated by them its time to show jura power and their guild strength . how the battles end are for only guesses as mostly they are matched perferct with there magic.
do u think battle between the knights and natsu ,mira will collapse the palace????
Well, Sting was also fighting for Lector's sake, when he fought against Natsu in the Tournament, but still couldn't win. It actually shows that this power only works in FT's favour.
Also I can't agree that Sting was stronger than Genma. It was just the fact that Genma wasn't cautious and clearly understimated Sting, while he managed to use a surprise attack. The same way even Gray can take Makarov or Gildats...
Maybe the idea is that even if he was fighting for Lector's sake it was still mostly a matter of proving he was strong while Natsu was fighting with... the fury of seeing his friend being harmed? And now that Lector is at risk of being harmed... yeah. idk. By this point I kinda think Lector's dead, and Minerva just said a ton of BS to keep Sting in the guild and motivated until the tournament let up.
Though this being Fairy Tail I'm probably wrong -.-
I don't think Sting will fight any1, Sting will turn on Minerva I'm sure of it. This leaves Gajeel & Rouge have their own show, however it will be a very lame show and not enough to give Gajeel what he deserve.
An encounter between Laxus + Jura + Orga sure is going to happen, same with Erza + Kagura + Minerva ( With a little bit scene between Minerva n Sting )
Getting thrashed like nothing by Laxus TWICE.
getting a run for his money by a freaking CAT.
Getting completely thrashed by two unbelievably random members of GH. While natsu and the others defeated people at least 70 times stronger than these two.
Why do you expect so much from him is beyond me.
I'm pretty sure he did not want to hit Laxus back, so they can acknowledge him as a member of the guild, why else would he protect Levy ?
Lily is the most awesome cat among all the other joke presented in this manga and its Gajeel cat. Lily was overwhelmed by Gajeel strength in the fight.
As for the fight against GH, believe it or not...his fight was way much better than Erza fight against Azuma, or Gray vs Ultear....
Gray lucked out, but Erza beat Azuma. Gajeel got downed by mooks. It's like being beaten by a Team Rocket grunt then saying "so and so only beat Giovani because his Persian hit itself when it was confused." I'm with KingOfNight. He's a strong character, if day 4 was any indication he will cream Rogue, but your giving him too much credit.
Don't misunderstand me, i know Gajeel is strong and all but not that strong. I just don't understand why you expect so much from him. His fight against the goat and chicken may have been pretty epic but his opponents where literally a nobodies, so nobodie-sh that they were made into a goat and a chicken. Even i was surprised he was thrashed by them (yes i consider this their victory because they were pretty fine after the fight while he was out cold for the rest of the arc, had Erza not been there, they could have killed him 20 times over). While i'm sure he will own Rouge, thats as much as i see him doing nothing more really.
And BTW he lost to Natsu because Natsu was genuinely stronger than him.
Well, no matter how you look at it Gajeel is way stronger than Gray, who is just a fan-favourite and has a very strong plot-armour, thus he barely looses even if his opponents outclass him like Ultear or Rufus.
Well, Elza against Azuma... it was beyond any logical reason. Elza's victory was one of the biggest asspulls in the manga history. Azuma literaly had the entire power of Tenrojima and the power of entire Fairy Tail (including Makarov and Gildartz) and Elza managed to take him down? That's just "a power of friendship", that's normally called asspull in a dictionary no matter how we look in it...
Also, Gajeel powered-up considerably after timeskip during his training. I doubt that it would be an easy match for him, when he fights agasinst Rogue, but still he should win this one. And I doubt it would be as much of an asspull as it was on Gray's part.
Obviously, it's because kid Gray won that skirmish in the OVA.
Not sure where I'd place Gray relative to Gajeel. He gets more screen/panel time, but I think they'd come out pretty evenly matched, based on how other fights have gone. If Rogue tries Dragon Force again I may change my mind, but as of now that's how I see it.
As for Gray being stronger than Natsu... No. Erza is stronger unless the situation says otherwise, and Gildartz and Laxus have both proven that they're stronger, but Gray has most certainly not demonstrated that he's stronger.
That being said, I think Gray had the best shot at becoming S-Class. Cana and Lucy didn't seem capable of taking on him and Loke, and Natsu wouldn't have found the grave.
