I know their expectations of Fairy Tail have plummeted for understandable reasons, and I'm positive they'll rethink just how weak the guild is by the end of the tournament, but still, their "Fairy Tail sucks herpaderp" attitude gets me just as pissed as Gray is at those two driving forces for his pure, unadulterated rage. And if Gray says he'll get payback, then goddammit, Hiro's gonna let him have payback.
Well, I'm predicting it now, the upcoming fight is going to be a fight of tits. Simply because its Lucy vs large breasted heavily cleavage girl. IIRC the only thing Lucy's magical level do is effect how many summons she can do at once. It'll all come down to strategy, like who will work well with who. But again, since Lucy is involved it's gonna be a gag for the first chapter or two before the fight gets serious. If it even does.

If Lucy does lose, it's not a big deal overall, because Natsu and the other powerhouses of fairy tail will make up for it.

To be honest I only predict Lucy, Natsu and Gray to win their matches...I don't know why but I get this feeling Erza will get beat in one of the matches.

As for B team...I don't see Luxus and Jelly losing, Gajeel has been on a slop lately so he'll possible get quite an epic win at some point.

Gajeel is the new Worf.

form Miria's little fantasy, she still got that rivalry going between her and Erza.

My problem is that Gray and Juvia did nothing. Gray has ice shields while Juvia has water prisons and is also able to hide in water. They just stood there and got slapped around, and Gray didn't find a counter to Chin-man in the end at all. I was disappointed because I wanted Hiro to show-case some new abilities or tactics for each character, but only Eve and Chin-man seemed to utilize any tactics, and only Rufus displayed any worthwhile ability. That left the impression that Leon, Yeagar, Beth, Juvia and Gray were just running around slapping each other.

Well, we all know that Lucy oftentimes wins her fights with her resourcefulness. But if Lucy loses, then I'll have to put up with another week or so of the audience's shameless heckling. Sure, that'd probably make it all the sweeter when Fairy Tail demonstrates they're not as weak as everyone thinks they are, but still, I'm more of a fan of people gradually gaining the acceptance of others. It just gets me in a bad mood when people are viewed with such contempt for so long.

Yeah, Juvia should be untouchable, she's water woman...still, no matter how much Fairy Tail is jeered upon, I feel that the true sacrifices in this arc will be the Mermaid Heel and Quattro Cerberus members. If anything, they didn't do jack in this chapter either, and also got caught by the top contenders. Curiously enough, nobody seemed to notice that except a few guild members.

Well, whatever the case may be, I think I can predict what the moral of this story arc will be:

The number one guild isn't truly determined by ranking the strength and skill of its members. And Fairy Tail will no doubt be the one to demonstrate that lesson, whether they know it now or will figure it out along the way.

Calling united-we-stand! Mashima's always been short on the moral department, and if FT has any major flaws, it's definitely the generic nature of FT's morals; standing strong on friendship, but not even going for protectors of Magnolia, defenders of justice, dark guild hunters or the many other things that they could do with ease.

Yea Fairy Tail was kind of screwed from teh beginning. They are all about AOE moves and massive damage. But this match if you did anything of the sort you would lose points. MASSIVE points.

Actually Gray was probably the best one for this test depsite how he fared.
He has shown us that he is precise and very good at controlling his magic, his magic is probably best for attacking single targets just he didn't apply any kinda plans to this round whatsoever.
Was gloosed over really, got no planing of any kind from Gray and thats usually not the case, he's one of the smarter ones.

Well putting that aside I figured FT would be coming last to begin with, figures we'll see them hanging on in there for abit and pulling back a comeback of sorts.

But all that doesn't matter atm cause all I'm looking forward to is this awesome match, Flare vs Lucy!
I love this RT chick, she's got that sweet spot crazy sense that you can totally get behind!

The thing is, Gray didn't really get much of a chance to plan with the way the Raven Tail guy was pretty unerringly going after him, and him alone. So it's not surprising that he ended up fairing poorly.

Ya know, I get this feeling that "Flare Corona" seems to be a rather..."celestial" name, wouldn't you say...?

I guess the constellation Corona Borealis could provide a silver key, but I don't see anything in this Flare Corona that evocates a crown.
Plus wouldn't that be a regression, we already had a gold key last time ?

Anyways, if she uses threads, mazes, labyrinths or even minotaurs, we'll know for sure since Corona Borealis kinda represent the crown that was given to Ariadne

The only corona I can think of is the corona effect on power lines...can't say it's indicative of a lightning magic user though

Or she could be realted to a certain beer

Maybe she'll have a drunken bitch slap style magic!

Wouldn't that be something else!

In this case, it doesn't matter. You just need to touch someone to score a point.

Anyway, I'm joining the chorus about being interested in the next match next week. Will Corona be another key user? Will Lucy win through skill, or luck? I'm sensing a luck theme with Lucy throughout the entire story, and am wondering how it will play out here. I'd rather she not win fights through luck, though, but actually step up and showcase some skill.

Thing is, if she summons Capricorn, she should win, since if Flare is human, she shouldn't be able to beat him. So I'm wondering how that will be negated. The only thing I can think of, is if Flare has spirits, too. But then Leo is supposed to be the ultimate battle spirit.

The only other option is for Lucy to lose, which I can kinda see happening. But that would be unlucky (or would it?).

If by FT you mean Raven Tail, then yes, so am I. But I'd rather see Fairy Tail take out Raven Tail, considering how they're apparently targeting FT alone.

It wouldn't be surprising if Flare or someone else in the tournament turned out to be a celestial wizard (or if more than one of them did), because Lucy still has two more golden keys to prove she's worthy of having. And as I have said once before, I want to see Lucy walk away with at least a tie. It's allowed, after all, and both teams would be awarded 5 points, which would keep the first day from being a complete and utter failure. Otherwise we'll have to wait for the start of the second day onward to see Fairy Tail turn things around.
