Fairy Tail 295 Breakdown! Holy Justice is really painful.
Welcome to this week’s breakdown, Fairy Tail fans!
Another extra-long chapter with color pages?! You’re awesome, Mashima.
And what a chapter it was. After activating Dragon Force, Sting gets really cocky and tells Rogue to stay out of the fight because he’ll be enough to handle both Natsu and Gajeel. He then punches Natsu right in the face and proceeds to overwhelm both him and Gajeel, dodging every counterattack. In a shocking display of power, he uses the White Dragon’s Holy Breath to destroy the arena.
I love how Sting is able to easily crush his opponents while using Dragon Force. After watching Natsu and Gajeel pwning him and Rogue in last week’s chapter, I couldn’t wait to see Sabertooth turn the tables on them. I didn’t expect Sting to take them both on by himself, but I liked it anyway. He showed us his true power and it was awesome: he wasn’t even damaged by a point-blank Iron Dragon’s Roar!!
Anyway, this chapter also gives us a glimpse of Sting’s past and the promise he made with Lector.
While he’s beating the crap out of Natsu and Gajeel, Sting remembers why he wants to beat the Salamander so badly. When he was young, other kids would bully Lector and call him a liar because he said that Sting killed a dragon. Wanting to show the world that his friend wasn’t a liar, Sting promised that one day he would defeat Natsu, the closest thing to a dragon that he knew of.
Wow, I expected something much more angsty and depressing. That promise really fueled Sting for all these years? Well, I guess since he was a kid he really took it seriously and once he made it into Sabertooth, the evil master Jiemma used this promise to manipulate him and make him the mean guy he is now.
Moving on, after defeating Natsu and Gajeel, Sting thinks he has finally fulfilled that promise. Rogue says that the era of the Old Generation Dragon Slayers is over and the referee is about to declare Sabertooth as the winner, but Fairy Tail suddenly gets up, commenting on how their beating made them figure out Sting’s habits and now they will continue to fight.
Then Natsu does the stupidest thing ever: he pushes his battle partner on a cart and sends him away, overconfidently declaring that he can defeat Sting and Rogue on his own.
Well, Natsu, I don’t know how you’ll defeat two Third Generation Dragon Slayers using Dragon Force, considering that only one beat up both you and Gajeel. How did you get up after that in the first place? Mashima better explain… or else. 😈
Anyway, I hope Natsu won’t defeat Sting and Rogue and even if he does, he better not use Nakama power or I’ll be really disappointed.
That brings us to the end of the breakdown. See you next week!!
The new Fairy Tail movie is out!! Time to look for a subbed version. @___@
