Fairy Tail 284 Breakdown!! The Epicness of Erza Scarlet.
Hey guys! It’s been a long time since I’ve written a breakdown for Fairy Tail and I’m really sorry. I’ve been really busy with life but summer’s almost here, so I’ll resume writing breakdowns regularly now!
The chapters I missed have really been great, but so was this week’s chapter. It looks like the third day of the Grand Magic Games is going to be EPIC.
It starts on a calm note. We see Yukino in the city, overhearing two men talking about Sabertooth being attacked by someone. She thinks it was Natsu, but she doesn’t know he challenged Jiemma and blew up a part of the guild right before being stopped by Minerva, the strongest woman in Sabertooth who is going to participate in the Games. Judging by how she blocked Natsu’s attack effortlessly, she must be extremely strong. I can’t wait to see her fight.
Anyway, the third day’s guest judge is Lahar from the Magic Council and Doranbolt has come with him to see how Fairy Tail is doing. Because of their presence, Jellal decides to retire from the GMG for the day and let Cana take his place.
I’m happy Cana is going to fight in the Games. We have never really seen her full potential, not even during the Tenrou Arc, so I hope she’ll get to show off her magic this time. If she trained hard during the three months before the Grand Magic Games, then I’m sure she’s S-Class level. Considering how Hiro is letting the non-main characters be awesome (just think about Elfman and Kagura), Cana should have an epic battle too.
Moving on, Matt (the pumpkin man) gives us an extremely lengthy and mostly useless explanation of the rules of the competition, which actually looks really cool.
After seeing the power of the participants, I thought Pandemonium would have taken at least one more chapter, but I was proved wrong. Erza draws the #1 straw and reminds us why she’s one of the most badass characters in the manga.
Ah, Erza… it’s been a long time since you showed off your awesomeness.
Taking on all 100 monsters at once, even the S-Class demon which is said to be stronger than a Wizard Saint, is not an easy feat. I thought she would have lost, making Fairy Tail fall behind once again, but she’s just too strong.
Some people even said that she’s overpowered and her power-up was too great, but I disagree. Many arcs ago, during the war between Fairy Tail and Phantom Lord, it was said that Erza is Wizard Saint level. Also, even though the last serious one-on-one fight she had was against Azuma, she had been weakened by the Tenrou tree’s uprooting, so that wasn’t her full power. After the power-up, I think it’s normal for her to be really strong.
What do you think? Is she overpowered?
Either way, if we really want to see how strong she is, we will have to wait until she gets to fight another powerful mage.
That brings us to the end of the chapter. After defeating all 100 monsters, Erza raises her sword in victory.
Thanks to the Scarlet Knight, Fairy Tail has just got 10 points and everyone else didn’t gain any. This means Fairy Tail A is second, 14 points behind Raven Tail.
I hope that there will be a plot twist or something that will make Fairy Tail fall behind because if they keep this up, they will win effortlessly. They could lose some points if Erza is called to fight next chapter because, since she is severely wounded, she would lose. But Fairy Tail can send in a reserve member to take her place, just like Blue Pegasus did with Ichiya, so that won’t happen. Fortunately, Mashima isn’t such a troll. 😛
Well, that’s it for me! Next week there will probably be a breather chapter because this week’s Fairy Tail was just too epic. See you next time!
Vegeta, what does the scouter say about her power-level??
It’s… OVER 9000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*splodes from too much awesomeness*
