Kicking off from last time, Kyouka is now in the same chains Erza has been in for the past few chapters, with Erza looking very angry and grumpy over the previous torturing and wanting to get some sadistic revenge. Erza, Natsu and Lisanna demand she tells them where Mirajane and Elfman are. Kyouka tells them that Mirajane is in the lab and they're probably already too late. She also tells them she doesn't know who Elfman is. And with that, Natsu and Lisanna run off to find Mirajane, leaving Erza with Kyouka.
|Erza's rape face is giving me the weirdest boner right now.|
|This is starting to become a ridiculously overpowered loophole.|
As Erza and Kyouka face off, they talk about how Kyouka blindly believes in her creator no matter what, and Erza tells her a person should choose who they believe in. Personally, I find this lesson almost pointless because we all know Kyouka is far too dark and cruel to ever even listen to Erza and change sides. If she did, this arc would lose a lot of points. This is when Erza takes out her next armour, and a huge lance smashes into Kyouka.
|How is there no blood?!|
Back to the rest of Fairy Tail, they're getting fed up fighting all the soldiers that seem endless. I have a theory that there are so many guards due to some sort of cloning technique. Possibly the demon in the helmet. Possibly Lamy. Maybe we'll find out soon. I hope they answer it because random generic humans fighting them? That makes no sense. Anyway, Elfman finally stands back up and is now fighting alongside them to correct his mistake of being manipulated.
|Nothing wrong with a Juvia-upskirt-while-raging picture... right?|
With literally every character of the Fairy Tail guild, who aren't horribly injured or inside Tartaros already or never in the plot except when it suits him, (where the hell is Gildarts right now?!), Happy and Carla are trying to figure out how they can get inside Tartaros since they are still stuck on the very bottom. In comes Erza and her massive lance of penetration, which has literally broken through the entire guild-cube!
|A Levy panel without Gajeel? I don't approve!|
Natsu and Lisanna are splitting up now, due to Natsu having/wanting to fight off the guards that are chasing them. It's weird to see Natsu use magic in so long, but I suppose it had to happen eventually. We can't have a plot without the main character. This is when things take a very surprising turn. The guards stop moving suddenly. Frozen in time. And out of the shadows, steps Zeref!!!
|Wait. Is Zeref... cute?|
I'm going to start off with talking about Zeref. That's easily the biggest part of this chapter and the one that interests me the most. Zeref is here and he looks somewhat happy. That's a big difference to how he looked when he first stepped out in front of Natsu. Again, I am 100% sure that Zeref is secretly Natsu's biological father. Is Natsu a demon of Zeref like the others? Not likely but don't rule anything out. And with the arrival of Zeref, the chances of the guild defeating Tartaros just got even slimmer than before. We've only had Kyouka get defeated by the looks of things, so there are still far more enemies to go through.
Manga Rating: 4.5/5
Overall Character of the Week: Erza Scarlet for finally getting her revenge against Kyouka, and creating a massive hole in Tartaros so the rest of the characters can get involved.
A) Zeref and Natsu are going to have a big talk, where Zeref reveals plot twists and why he is here. He might say he wants to save magic and stop the demons. He might say he just wanted to see Natsu, his son. Gray, Gajeel, Juvia and more will enter Tartaros and end up facing their main battle of the arc, finally!
B) It's not Zeref. It's an illusion created by one of the demons of Tartaros, who is trying to trick Natsu so he/she can get a better chance at killing him. I'll be really pissed off, consider leaving the manga series, bitch for a while, then sigh and write how disappointed I am in the next review.
P.S Does this mean Kain Hikaru and Rustyrose are here too?
