Fairy Tail 292-294 Breakdown!! The most one-sided fight ever.
Welcome to this week’s Fairy Tail breakdown, WRA! After many weeks of absence, I’m back! I missed three chapters in total, so, without further ado, let the breakdown start!
Chapter 292 was a good chapter. Fairy Tail declares that they will make Sabertooth pay and they are informed that they have to fuse Fairy Tail A and B together to make the number of teams even for the last days’ battles.
The new team is awesome, even though Mirajane is deprived of the spotlight once again, so we can’t see the full potential of her new Satan Soul, unfortunately. The match-ups are also really predictable: Laxus vs Orga, Gray vs Rufus, Natsu vs Sting, Gajeel vs Rogue and last but not least, Erza vs Minerva.
That brings us to this week’s chapter, Battle of the Dragon Slayers! Sting and Rogue finally get to show us their magic, but will it be enough to defeat Natsu and Gajeel after their training?
Apparently not, because the entirety of the chapter is about them getting pwned. 😛
Unexpectedly, Sting and Rogue aren’t even close to Natsu and Gajeel’s level. I thought they would have been on par with each other, but it looks like they really aren’t. Even when they activate their Drives, they only manage to overwhelm their opponents for a short while, probably because they were surprised by the power boost.
The most interesting part of the fight, imo, was the Third Generation Dragon Slayers’ magic. Even though I don’t like Sting, I have to say that his magic is really cool. He uses the White Dragon’s power, the power of justice! I hope someone will explain how that’s different from light magic. O__o
Rogue’s magic is also really fascinating. He can literally turn into shadow and become intangible. It is far from unbeatable, though, since Gajeel hit him anyway.
Moving on, after getting a beating from Natsu, Sting uses his most powerful attack in his Drive form, but it fails to even damage the Salamander. Makarov and Yajima conclude that the difference in power is just too great.
Don’t tell me you didn’t expect that joke… It was set up perfectly. X___X
I don’t like how easily Natsu and Gajeel defeated their opponents. They’re in the top five of the strongest Guild in Fiore! They should have put up much more of a fight, even without their Drives. If the other mages in their team are as “strong” as they are, then Fairy Tail won’t have the least bit of trouble winning.
Surprisingly, though, Sting and Rogue still have a trump card… Dragon Force.
Mavis’s reaction is really interesting. Has she met a Dragon Slayer before? Is it Zeref? If you want to know more about that, I found an awesome theory on the Fairy Tail wiki! Click here.
Well, that’s it for me!! See you all next week.
By the way, I didn’t mention chapter 293 because I’m trying to erase Ichiya’s face from my memory… *shudders*
