To attempt to clarify for anyone still confused, chapter 312 officially was released on 12/26 in issue #4-5. It's a double issue which means that they put two issue numbers on a single issue, so that they can take a week off without disrupting their count.
Chapter 313 officially comes with issue #6, which will be released on 1/9/13.
Due to the way that the industry printing and distribution system works, copies of a magazine can be available up to 5 days before the official street date. Those early copies are what scanlations usually get made from. That's why we got "this weeks chapter" last Friday.
When there's a double issue, the distribution time tables tend to change. As such we could get a chapter today, in which case there would be no chapter next week, or we could not get a chapter until next friday. Or any time in between.
In general, any time you're curious as to when scans are most likely to show up for a new chapter, just go to http://kc.kodansha.co.jp/magazine/index.php/02065/next check the date of the next issue (it's in year/month/day format and should be fairly easy to pick out even if you don't know Japanese) and subtract 5 days.
i want minerva to win and kick erza's ass.
hell not, minerva won't kich erza ass, minera could push erza to her limits but at the end erza will win..
When future Lucy said they'd win with an outcome so awesome no one would believe it, I think Fairy tail will defeat everyone still left standing without losing a single member.
I want to see Erza summoning a strap-on and... I'll let you guys figure the rest
But seriously, I really want to see that Minerva getting her ass kicked by both Kagura and Erza, and after that they can fight without interruption, that would be sweet
I think its about time for Erza to wear her fairy armor as it is the only way to achieve a fast victory in this case unless something is kept as a last resort card. And who knows maybe this will provoke Kagura to draw her sword for real this time.

Another thing is that Minerva has that cat with her so at least I suppose for Erza to win, Sting has to at least finish his battle or else there is no need for using the cat trick that has been introduced. Or that even in defeat she uses the cat as a card to drive Sting to achieve victory no matter what.

without a doubt fairy tail have the hottest chicks and erza is going to have a hard time vs minerva and well kagura is pissed off that erza helped out her lover
if i read correctly...it says a guild shall win in an outrageous manner (i guess on mangastream).....
so i wouldnt be surprised that sting actually starts the dragon festival....
Even if it's off topic I ask it here.
I think that we should make a thread with all our judment for the 2012, in a similar way how this thread of One Piece http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showth...-Piece-in-2012, and even one with our expectations and hope for the 2013,
What you think about this????
As for Sting, he is weak. Both he and Rogue will lose to Gajeel this time. Also, his stupid little cat is really dead, since Minerva is a lying b****. I only find it sad the master didn't kill the other cat too.
