Fairy Tail 266. The labyrinth of awesomeness and unoriginal titles.
Ah, the start of the Grand Magic Games. We were all wondering what Mashima would have done and he surprised us all.
This chapter was fast-paced, hilarious and action-packed. I also really liked the mysterious and slightly creepy atmosphere. If the whole arc is going to be as epic as this chapter, we’re in for one hell of a ride.
As soon as I saw the host of the tournament, I knew something was up. He wants to reduce the number of participating guilds from 113 to 8 and he doesn’t care if anyone dies in the labyrinth. Erza was right when she thought that the event organizers were responsible for the mysterious magical presence.
Another mystery is Wendy’s disappearance. The last time we saw her, that imp was spying on her, so it probably attacked her for some reason. I think it was trying to sabotage Fairy Tail because if they don’t have 5 team members, they automatically lose. Or maybe something bigger and darker is behind her kidnapping…
Regardless of who or what kidnapped her, Fairy Tail needs a wizard, so Elfman joins the team.
I’m not so happy about Elfman taking Wendy’s place. He’s awesome, but I like Wendy more. She’s a Dragon Slayer and also has those two ultimate spells that Grandine gave her. Well, as long as she uses them against her kidnapper, I’ll be happy.
Speaking about Happy (get the pun? X__X), he and Lisanna went looking for Wendy. I think this is Mashima’s chance to give him a new ability unlocked by Ultear’s magic. Charle has precognition and Lily has his Full Power Mode, so he really needs a unique power to catch up to his fellow Exceed.
Or else he’ll get pwned like these guys.
Seeing Fairy Tail curbstomp everyone that got in their way was so funny. They may have trouble with S-Class Mages, but fodder is always fodder. It isn’t as funny, though, to see that they really aren’t the most powerful guild anymore. Of the eight teams to make it to the end of the maze, they were last.
Fairy Tail will really have to work hard if they want to be #1 again. There are 7 guilds that they have to fight. I’m guessing that they are Blue Pegasus, Raven Tail, Lamia Scale, Sabertooth, Quatro Cerberus and two new guilds. I really wonder how Fairy Tail is going to win the tournament. This arc is going to be very interesting!
That’s all for this week. Let’s hope next chapter is going to be even better than this one!
This demotivational poster is saying exactly what Tenrai wrote in a comment on last week’s breakdown. That’s uncanny. O__O
Well, I hope you enjoyed the breakdown! See you in the comments!
