Fairy Tail 321 Breakdown. The Power of Youth!
Welcome to your weekly breakdown, Fairy Tail fans!!
This week’s chapter starts off immediately after last week’s final page. Laxus punches Jura, who quickly retaliates by raising earth pillars from the ground. Their fight continues and the crowd, especially Makarov, is shocked by the Lightning Dragon’s true power. Mavis says that today’s youth will continue to grow stronger, leading the world into the next era!
As if on cue, Laxus uses a powerful attack that leaves Jura almost speechless, but eager to continue their battle. He then thinks about what Natsu would say in this situation and steals his trademark catchphrase: “I’m getting fired up!”.
This shows that Laxus has really changed and he’s not the arrogant prick he used to be in the Fighting Festival arc. He has developed as a character and as a person, which makes him much more sympathetic.
The scene moves to Erza and Minerva’s fight, with the Scarlet Knight proclaiming her intention to win no matter what.
Minerva’s magic is finally explained, even though I wasn’t the least bit satisfied. Mashima used to develop the forms of magic the heroes and their foes used and it made everything more interesting.
Just think of Ultear, Cobra, Kain Hikaru, Meredy… Their magic didn’t get a one page explanation. It was explained during their fights and I really liked that. That’s why I think Mashima’s getting lazy because he could have developed War God Magic more, instead of simply saying Minerva can manipulate anything in her field of vision, even changing the properties of the space she’s manipulating. Maybe he didn’t do that because there are so many fights going on, but he should’ve slowed down and focused on one, with a quick look at another one instead of what he did in this week’s chapter. It was too hectic, in my opinion.
Anyway, despite her opponent’s magic, Erza counterattacks and releases Second Origin, revealing an awesome new armor.
Please correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t this armor’s name translate to Heavenly God’s Armor? That means that Erza wields the power of the gods now… That is so epic.
Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait to see what happens because the next page shows how Gray and Juvia’s fight is going. They’re badly beaten, so Lyon and Chelia decide to deliver the finishing blow, but the Fairy Tail mages are determined to win using their combined magic.
I think they should lose. Gray isn’t at full power because of his fight with Rufus, so Lyon is stronger than him. Also, Fairy Tail winning every battle would be really cheap, so it would be better if they lost one and would have to struggle to win the Grand Magic Games.
Moving on, the chapter ends with Laxus using Dragon Slayer’s Secret Art and defeating Jura.
Oh no, Fairy Tail has won again! It’s getting old. They’re winning the tournament and they still have five members left! I hope something shocking will happen, like Sting finishing off the weakened members of Fairy Tail because them winning like this would be really boring.
Well, I guess that’s it for this week! See you next time!!
What the heck is happening here? Is that Lector?! O__o
