I dunno but it looks more like a giant black bird than a dragon...just look at the wings and tail.
And the head reminds me of the Edolas dragons or whatever they were.

I'm actually looking forward to watching Acnologia obliterate Tenrou Island and pawn FT. They've had a few too many victories under their belt, so it's about time they have a solid defeat handed to them.

Gildarts is still awesome though. XD

Giant beast, wings, horns, tail... looks like a dragon to me. Yeah sure, it lacks the leathery wings so common in western dragons, but there's plenty of dragons with feathery wings out there. Asian mythology is filled with them (when they even had wings, that is).

It looks more like a demonic Fenghuang to me than even an Eastern dragon, was my point (which I probably should have actually said... ).

Feather wing dragons would be South America Dragons.

Asian dragons don't have wings.

Probably less than you'd think. Back in Rave Master, he apparently promised to do a shower scene with Elie, then put off doing it for quite a while. To the point that fanmail began nagging him about it. This was apparently partially out of reluctance, and partially out of lack of a good place to put it. After a few volumes he finally went ahead and placed one as one of the end of volume bonus pages.

Only instead of simply including it, he had the last question of the Q&A be about it, gave a longish response that ending in something along the lines of "ok, here you go" that required the reader to turn the page. The next page being a shower scene of the two most ugly and annoying male character's on the hero's side, with a caption along the lines of "oops, let's check back after the fan art section". Then a couple pages later after the fan art section was the Elie Shower scene.

He's gotten more comfortable with such fanservice over the course of Fairy Tail's run, but personally I suspect that those chapters at the start of the year where the cover page one week was topless Lucy posing on her bed, and the next week was a topless Ichiya in the same pose on his bed; was a gentle reminder that if he's bugged too much to include more fan service, he may just make it service of characters we really don't want to see service of.

Doesn't it look a bit like the Fairy Tail emblem, though?

Coincidence?

seriously...yeah you are right, all those scenes listed would fit the bill, but thatonly flies under the assumption that Mashima a) works dilligently and this is all 100% planned and b) does not throw around red herrings for the fun of it. So yeah, good chance you are rite, but to say it with Makarov's words when being faced with Natsu messing up Erza's council trial:"We shall patiently wait for the results"...

Spoiler for 251:
I'm sorry haegar, I really am. It's just that people keep relating someone dying with Charle's visions and it pisses me off. Hell, some are so retarded to say that Cana crying hasn't happened yet and that it will happen but she'll be wearing the clothes she's wearing now. It's getting very tiring that some people can be THAT slow and annoying.

Don't usually see 'powerful' people in mangas flipping out so naturally like Gildartz. But its all good.

But however promising a father Gildartz may seem to be, I sense he will be easily distracted.

If he lives after Tenrou, I can see him and Cana being like Brock and Misty, that everytime he sees a hot chick and gets flirty, she pulls him by his ear and takes him away>v<.

Well there's only so much time they can spend together really. If Gildarts get sent out on an S-class mission, let alone SS, Cana probably wouldn't be able to come with him. Then again, it is Gildarts we're talking about...

Well, it is supposed to be something that heralds the ending of an age... but a fenghuang? I don't know, I'm on the other side of the fence, looks too dragon-like to be a fenghuang.

Generally not, no. But when they were they did tend to be bird wings. Or at least that's my experience. But yeah, south America is a better example in that regard.

I hope he does. Don't get me wrong, sometimes a dramatic death can serve to spike up the tension, but Gildartz dieing so shortly after the events in this chapter? That'd be a bit too much forcing the drama for my tastes.

While on the subject, I think this next battle is approaching a bit too fast. We just settled a big battle arc, a bit of juxtaposition would be appreciated here.

I think the couple chapters of celebration they had was enough. I almost thought they'd escape disaster since Zeref hitchhiked off the island before cutting loose, but nope, Acnologia flew right back.

Put another way, this arc ain't over yet. Mashima put alot of resources into hinting at a big loss for FT; It just turns out it'll be due to the black dragon rather than GH winning, or the Council nuking the island, or Zeref waking up. They dodged every bullet except the last one.

(Well, okay, they could still dodge this too... and then I'll be pissed.)

Indeed. I'd say 90% chance Mashima fails at killing anyone.
