Erza's "I can not die." comment.
Erza finally getting a clean hit on Kagura.
Erza risking her life to save Kagura from the falling rocks.
Finding out that Kagura is alive and was not taken as a child was cause of Erza.
Minerva playing dirty and defeating Kagura.
Erza's "killing face" directed towards Minerva.
Minerva is a strong mage, the fact that the other members on her team saying that the twin dragons don't even hold a candle to her just emphasizes the point, she blocked a lightning flame dragon attack like it was nothing, but now all she does is look weak every other time she's shown. She beat up lucy, a stellar spirit mage, only after taking away her stellar spirit keys, which is a smart move, but if she is a strong as she claims she shouldn't have bothered with that because they wouldn't have made a difference. She made a decent showing in the short 3 way battle with kagura and erza, but then shoots out some bs about being a king and leaves and makes them fight, only to come back and sneak attack a defeated opponent and brag that that's how a king fights. She has had decent build up, but all she's really done is attack weakened or defenseless opponents, she fought a stellar spirit mage with no stellar spirits, and stabbed an unarmed swordsman from behind, I so wanna see erza beat her face in, at least other enemies like sting, rogue, rufus, and orga are willing to actually fight someone, minerva just goes after defenseless people and brags about her strength, she seems way overrated instead of being sabertooths number 1
I really liked this chapter.
To tell you the truth I really can’t understand why there has been so many negative comments.
Infact even is it true that Erza was outclassed by Kagura, even if She had not draw her sword, Erza damage was not too great (at least the damage of her armour, for example infact Ikagura was able to destroy completely all Erza’s armour).
I was even sure that Erza would have not allow to Kagura to kill her so easily, because thanks to her dream around chapter 100 she discovered than that would have only bring pain to the others members of Fairy Tail.
I have to admit that I thought about Erza’s death, because at the end of the chapter 314 I did not see Erza’s sword, so I believed that she could not defense herself, but now I believe that most likely her sword was covered by her clothes.
Anyways I think than the clothes that Erza is wearing at the beginning of the chapter is not a real armour, for this reason I believe that here http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/315/6 Erza had all her magic power in her sword.
But I believe the real reason that has make able that Erza would be able to defense herself from Erza’s attack is the trajectory of Kagura’s attack.
Infact here Kagura was attacking KaguraKagura was attacking from the side, from left to right, for this reason I believe that was able to change the trajectory of the attack more easily, she was able to dampen the impact force and move it to her right more easily.
At the opposite if Kagura’s attack would be similar to this http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/314/6, with the only difference that it would came from top to bottom, I don’t think that Erza would be able to defend herself so easily, I believe that infact that she would be badly injured.
Anyways several users have complained about the fact that Kagura’s undrawn sword was hyped but then it was not so great.
I must say that I don’t agree with it, because infact Kagura’s attack was able to destroy several building, she has almost cut the city in half http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/315/5 (I was sure that it would be similar to Mihawk’s attack).
Beside in their second slash http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/315/10 Erza did not defeated Kagura with power, but with speed.
Beside that other to the fact that Erza put all her power in the attack (and with it even her speed of attack increased), I must say that we must count that Kagura had lost her control, She was at the mercy of emotions, of the hatred, for this reason her movements were less effective.
Anyways Kagura was still able to continue the fight, but then after discovering that Erza was of the same village and the Erza saved her, she lost the will of fight.
Anyways after what Kagura says here http://mangastream.com/read/fairy_tail/81404703/19 “I need time to process all this information” I believe (in the truth I already thought this) that at the end of the tournament (or in the middle if as I believe Erza will be eliminated in the middle of it), Kagura and Milliana will ask Erza more informations, more details about Shimon death, and then after knowing that in the truth Gerard did not killed him, but in the truth Shimon decided to die for Erza, and most importantly that Gerard is no longer evil, that the Gerard that killed Shimon no longer exist I believe that both Milliana and Kagura will forgive him.
it's not a surprises to me if erza got a hard time vs kagura, she is one of the strongest(female) mage in the world while erza should be the number one soon or she might be number one already.
By the way there is a little change in Erzas' motivation that I like. It's not nakama power up this time - it's gonna be rage power up

Don't understand why minerva stabbed in the kidney and not in the heart. Still puzzled on this.
