Mashima truly has no balls. Can't even have a minor character properly sacrifice himself, let alone have one die from jumping into a pool of lava for pete's sake. He SHOULD be dead too, I think the fact he even made it to Yukino and Lucy was already impossible.
Natsu's end of the chapter comment seems to mean that the Executioners are already screwed. Not that I expected them to win, but already? They are pointless, but if they lose already then now I really don't get what good reason Mashima could have for including them. On another note the "Acid Rule" on that dudes back was a Rave shout out.

Still hoping Minerva is lying and Lector is dead, which would be deliciously evil.
I just re-read the chapter from mangastream, and I am more convinced that we shouldn't expect much of anything with these Hungry Wolves or whatever.
They are just filler fights to pro-long an important plot line which is, Arcadios good or bad? Did he really mean to sacrifice his life? Or was he that good of an actor or researcher and knew that Lucy's Horologium will come out to save him?
For me its too easy and the hype of these Wolves was too fast and rushed that they are nothing more but sparring partners for Fairy Tail.
Next Chapter should end all 5 battles and with the Princess thanking Lucy and everyone else whilst opening up the skeletons of Fiore.
On the first panel, the lava's glow made Lucy's skirt look like an ass with a G-string HAHA!
holy shit the chapter 309 it's out i'll be right back
okay, i finished reading the chapter and i believe if mashima let aracadeus died for the grow of lucy and yukino and that will give then a better reason to keep moving foward and more motivation to use the 12 zodiacs keys that eventually lucy will have..
i give this chapter 6..

Am I the only one who thinks that Leo looks kinda fat?
And the solely reason this chapter was good is Arcadios. Why? Because now we don't know if He's evil or not. You may say that He's evil because He talked about Zeref. What if He talked with the latter Zeref? The one who was peaceful and regretted his sins, I mean.
We just don't know. It's weird, since Acnologia issue DOES seems to be something that Zeref is concerned about. How and why Zeref is linked to it? We don't know. The Dragon spirit couldn't lie, I think, so that part may be true.
What if Zeref is the human part that Acnologia left behind??
Anyway, I don't like the lava stuff. Should have been ANY other thing. It's just unbelievable that He can walks trough Magama and rise from it without getting a single burn on his skin. I understand that He must be kept alive, but...Come on, Mashima.

Arnie is proud of you
Shame, I was looking forward to see the "holy knight" shows his skills. Other than lavawalking of course.

It looks like some people forgot how the laws of physics work in a fantasy world :
- Lava is around 60°C
- Magic fire is not really fire, but heat which burns superficially
- Lightning has high voltage but low intensity
- The human body can lose up to 30 liters of blood before falling unconscious
- An average human can jump from up to 50 meters high without breaking any bones
Must be very hard again for people reading manga just to wait for the author to kill off characters or stick with real world physics. Mashima just has teh ballz not to hesitate not to j-vulg.snip-f some meaningless killings just to bolster up the FT story to cover up flaws. (I'm typing this after seeing only the initial post. Not that I wouldn't respect other ones' opinions - at this point I don't care to read them as they are too easy to predict.)
Nice chapter so far, not much progress - neither on the battles nor the tournament - but still well enough for me. Just enough to go on reading. I think Mashima just deals with the new bad guys similar to like he did with Dokuro Kai (==> Ikaruga etc.). Therefore I'm eager to see a LucyXYukino unison raid fan service. :P But Loki's last fight was done in a pretty smart way, so I guess there's gonna be a big punch coming up in that battle.
