Thought that too, actually it may tie in with that dak mage whose name I can't remember right now, Zeref?

... I'll admit, they haven't been the greatest we've seen, but they do for now, till we start actually seeing some of the deeper plot

I thought that it would be obvious that we would be getting the introduction of more dragon slayers given that a big part of the central plotline is the disappeareance of the dragons (and the subsequent search of the lost dragons by their former disciples). It was only a matter of time, and we will be probably getting more. (or given the current pattern they are power based on the 5 chinese elements and we will only have 2 more)

Unknown... the significance that "7" has is that the dragons disappeared 7 years ago, and i think it was the 7th month of the 7th day of the 777th year
Ya wouldn't surprise me if their was 7 dragons that disappeared, what with all the 7's

Mashima has dissapointed me several times with Fairy Tail it has all the makings of being epic only to fail a few steps from reaching it. The Erza arc is a pretty good example of it. It started of well but then it ended up feeling dragged out, several dissapointing fights especially the one Erza had with that sword woman and then the arc ended in a wimper. The Water 7/Robin rescue arc this destroys Erza's arc in every way.

le sigh, so predictable and boring. Fairy tale is really starting to get weak, hopefully it picks up again, because this whole arc has been a massive dissappointment.

If that were the case, then that leaves 5 more people with dragon-slayer abilities since we already have fire and metal. If the mangaka is going for an elemental edge, which is very likely, then water and air dragons with corresponding slayers are a must, leaving 3 more pairs of dragons and slayers with powers we can only guess.



And I too agree that the story drags at times like now. Think we're expecting too much from the mangaka?

...possibly. Personally, I'm just going to let this guy write the story, because hopefully once we're done with this arc we'll go back to the dragon storyline and the mysterious number 7, and then things should be good... assuming the mangaka writes it well

Quote:
why does that guy have to be a dragon slayer, he doesn't even eat thunder!

Personally, I don't see them winning against Luxus unless Natsu brought with him etherion to consume....

Pheh, i never thought much of the goku and Vegeta rivalry... i mean, you could hardly call it a rivalry when you consider how after their first battle Goku was ALWAYS a step ahead of Vegeta... if i recall, they never had an equal fight after that, as Goku was always ahead and any equvalance in their fighting was only in the sense that Goku chose to hold back from using a level of super saiyan... frankly, i have more interest in Natsu and Gazzille than i ever had in goku and vegeta

Really, DragonBall was much more enjoyable of a series; DBZ was just a huge downward spiral

Y'know i actually do wonder, would this chapter have been as predictable if the title was something different...

Really, i think that's been a major failing point for Mashima has been his choice of titles which have been making it painfully obvious what was gonna happen... I mean with a name like "triple dragon" there wasn't exactly many possibilities; espeically when you consider that a third dragon slayer showing up out of no where would have been a serious ass-pull... even the title to the next chapter gives me a pretty good guess at what is going to happen; a guess that i might not be too quick to make if not for the title

4... Luxus, though he did not explicitly say so, is practially confirmed as a thunder dragon slayer... so we got, fire, Iron and thunder... possible other dragons; Water, Earth, Light, Darkness, Wind.... wood?...

^ and I bet Jubia's a dragon slyaer too..-_-"

I'm extremely disappointed that Luxus is a dragon slayer. Maybe he'll be beaten wimpily by a trick that only works on dragon slayers...I think that'll happen.

o think the translation that's out sounds a bit wierd

anyway, "Act of Elf", i'm not sure but from the context of the story, i think Luxus is whipping out something like "Fairy Law" to used against them... if the title of the next chapter is referring to Luxus, then i would go on to say that Luxus will want the spell to target his enemies and then it will be reviled that as much as he screams his anger, deep down he does not identify them as enemies and thus the spell will fail... aww...

i think this is gonna end in a rather anti-climatic fashion at this point

Very likely to happen, since Natsu also said "old man" in the previous page, implying it's one of Makarov's spells. Luxus said Rairyuu no hokou so that makes him the thunder dragon. Taking the elemental circle from Rave, Mashima fused "ocean" and "water" and removed "infinity", so we're left with earth/wind/water/light/dark, but since he introduced "iron",having "wood" as its reciprocal is also possible. Now, although having big fights is really fun and all, it wouldn't be so bad to keep the plot flowing-all we got to learn in this chapter is that Luxus is a DS and...yup,that's all. I'm hoping that Makarov will do a final spell to counter Luxus instead of him going all "I've seen the light" AND while he's at it, he could possess Luxus' body and take him out of the picture...

Doesn't it strike anyone else as odd that Gazille, the Steel Dragon, was sent undercover to infiltrate FairyTail by the rival clan? That feels just so obvious and generic.
I'm seriously hoping that at some point they will explain why Nastu and Gazille couldn't leave the guild at first. It only said that those made of stone and those older then 80 years could leave.

It's also getting a little silly how many people are looking like Gerard in this series. Hiro Mashima must have a real hard on for that design. Now Mist Gun has his face?

I love that this manga is published by DELRAY here in the US. I have almost all the current volumes published here in the States. Which aren't many, honestly. They also publish NEGIMA! and they keep the Japanese honorfics in the translations. It's great how close they keep to the original. I wish they published more of my favorite mangas.
