Fairy Tail 272 Breakdown.The Noble Loser.
You can’t win every battle; that’s how life goes. Sometimes, even if you’ve strived to become powerful for your friends and you deserve to win, you’ll lose. It’s unfair, but you have to accept it. That’s the great lesson Fairy Tail learned in this week’s chapter.
Fairy Tail 252 was an amazing chapter. Mashima surprised us by ending this battle in an unexpected way.
Lucy lost, but she deserved to win. I really liked this battle even though I wanted her to defeat Flare. It was very sad when she lost because Raven Tail cheated, but we got to see Lucy’s true power and it was epic. In my opinion, she’s S-Class now and she can probably hold her own against monsters like Natsu and Gray. If it hadn’t been for Flare’s cowardice, she would have easily won this battle.
This chapter also established Raven Tail as the worst guild ever.
We knew they were villains, but they’re unlike any we’ve seen before. They are cruel and cowardly. They gloat when they’re winning, but they start whimpering when they’re losing. They don’t even have a sense of honor. They only want to win, no matter what.
The funny thing is that Flare is probably the nicest in the guild. The other Raven Tail members are going to be even more sadistic and they will try to crush Fairy Tail in any way possible. Mashima really succeeded in making me hate them.
Fortunately, we got to see Flare suffer a bit this chapter, thanks to Natsu.
I’m happy Natsu saved Asuka, even though it was ridiculous that Mavis and Makarov didn’t notice Flare’s hair right next to them. You’re pretty much God-tier and you can’t sense her magic? I guess it’s because Flare’s hair had plot armor. -__-
Anyway, Lucy can finally make Flare pay.
She immediately summons Gemini and makes them turn into her. She then starts casting Urano Metria, the Ultimate Magic of the Stars, that had previously defeated Angel of Oraciòn Seis. Even with Lucy’s magic power doubled, it’s weaker than that time, but she’s sure it will defeat Flare. Finishing the incantation, Lucy opens her eyes and summons the power of the stars to crush her opponent.
Unfortunately, despite that epic chant, Lucy’s magic is cancelled, but it still leaves a huge crater in the ground. Flare stops whimpering and realizes that her guild mate Obra (whose familiar is the imp that incapacitated Wendy) saved her. The crowd starts ridiculing Lucy and Fairy Tail while Ivan’s trollface makes Makarov rage.
It looks like Yajima noticed Raven Tail cheating, though. Hopefully he’ll do something next chapter.
The chapter ends on a sad note. Natsu (who I’m actually starting to like) tries to cheer Lucy up telling her that they are going to win this, but she can’t stop crying.
Fairy Tail has a lot to do if they want to win. They can’t end up last in any competition. They also have to defeat Raven Tail and especially Sabertooth. I can’t wait to see that happen.
Fairy Tail A won’t be the star of next chapter, though. Since they’ve already fought, I think next chapter will focus on the other teams and it will be a nice change of pace.
I really want to see what the other mages are capable of. I’m looking forward to seeing the leader of Mermaid Heel fight and, obviously, Sabertooth. I also want to see Shellia‘s power. She’s a young girl like Wendy and she probably is way stronger than she looks.
Which team do you want to see fight?
Well, that’s it for this week. I hope you enjoyed the breakdown!
See you in the comments! ^^
