It seem there no energy lost when Cana used it, but I doubt she lacks the speed to avoid their attacks.

Pretty sure Laxus and Mystogan/Jellal could do this as well. In my opinion Laxus is stronger than Erza but don't nail me on that. Mirajane is most likely as strong as Erza. Definitely not Gray and I'm not confident in Natsu's nor Cana's abilities do it either. As for the other teams, Kagura, Jura and all of the top5 Sabertooth members. I'll go out on a leg here and say that Yukino would be able to do it too. Even though it got one-shotted by Kagura, Ophiuchus is still a hax summon.

the fact is the only people in the show who are capable of doing it are probably the dragon slayers (including sabertooth) except for wendy and cheria, Jura most definitely can do it. Serious mira could do it but im not convinced. The fact is the reason erza did a lot of it was because she can switch the armors. Jura is just that powerful and the Dragon slayers can eat element to recover energy. Kagura might be able to do it but i'm not convinced. That's it. Juvia CANNOT do it. Regrettably Jellal cannot do it because the only way he could would be to use his personal magic.
As for today's episode in a word disappointing

I thought they'd at least wind up the Laxus/RT battle in this episode, but they are really dragging things out. The Milliana fight was a decent addition, but they are really beginning to push this. How many times they did focus on people going "*gasp!* ? There is padding that smoothly fits within the flow... and then there is just padding.

Ah well, the FT anime has been pretty good thus far, so I'll let this slide.

like i told before, anime team is try to slow down the pace to make sure the anime dont gonna catch too soon manga, they trying to make 1 or 1& 1/2 chapters per episode with some fillers scenes, for me is better than put 2 or 3 chapters and start to make many mistakes like the chapter 161 where they rushed almost 3 episodes and cut too much good things.

the manga still have 32 chapters ahead anime this means who even if they start to put 2 chapters per episode we gona have at last 4months(dont count new chapters after chapter 318) before anime reach manga.(who can ending being something like 6 to 8 months). who is better than anime being stopped in the midle just to be sure he dont reach manga, like happened 2 years ago.

nah, they're just milking the cash cow. They've got us all hooked already, dragging out a bit every time means they might get to do an extra season without actually needing to come up with new content.

i dont have problem if they make another "anime only" arc like the clock of sky, after the end of this arc, can be a good help to increase more the gap between manga and anime as long the anime dont stop just because is reaching manga.

Just saw the episode and I like the pacing. Sadly I don't recall much of Milliana and Eve fight in the manga. I wonder if Hiro will expand there powers base on the anime staff direction or maybe they work in collaboration in this episode, anyone know?

The preview of the next fight looks nice, lot of movement and attacks. I wish Laxus still has his cocky attitude like back in the day. I'm assuming Laxus mother has blonde hair, what happen to her anyways...

Mira cheering for Laxus makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. Everyone cheering (including Gajeel) was nice and seeing Natsu blush made me ROFL. How many people does Natsu looks up too?

See you next episode.

I have the same complaint, but seeing another filler arc would blow, I rather have this pacing with fights like Eve vs. Rufus more thoroughly focus and expanded.

I loled hard at the illusion fight. It felt really wooden, how could anyone NOT tell it is fake?

LOL You can ask that about any character in Fairy Tail. Apparently, in the Fairy Tail universe, mothers don't exist. The only mothers we know about died before the series even started (Lucy's mom Layla and Ultear's mom Ul).

The only elder female in the series is Porlyusica, and she is an old maid (well, technically, there is that old guild master for the all female guild). And no, Mavis does not count; she's too cute and loli.

Even the newly introduced Minerva of Sabertooth only has a father.

Well, ok, maybe Bisca, but she had a child halfway through the series. The author really has a thing against moms in this series.

Well I don't think your first impression is that it's a big illusion. They were checking to see if something was being done outside, but not down where the fight was actually happening. I either hope they figure it out. Or they find out by the illusion shattering and the fried bodies of Raven Tail being left after Laxus is done beating them .

Fairy Tail finally got its spotlight.
Milliana vs Semas! That was a pretty fun fight.
Rufus Lohr vs Eve Tilm!
Honestly I didn't think Eve stood a chance right from the start and I was right.
Laxus vs Alexei! That was very interesting to watch.
The illusion battle was pretty one sided, but really was much worse.
Can't wait to see what'll happen next time.

Oh yeah, I fully understand why they are doing this. The alternatives were to put FT on hiatus for awhile, or give us yet another filler arc. Given that we just had a filler, my pick is what they are doing now. If I had to expand something out, I would have made Eve's fight vs. Rufus much longer, and had him put up more of a fight. Perhaps to give Gray a clue in how to defeat Rufus.

Do you actually want a new filler arc?

If it means that it won't catch up to the manga, then I wouldn't mind another filler arc. New never-before seen content is always welcomed in my book.

i was actually looking forward to Laxus in this episode but got more than that,

like Eve Tilm was in the council, a Rune knight and was a shining light (as said by Lahar), and is now even more powerful, even thought he lost to Rufus his status just got updated for me, its so much killing me to know who is under the bunny suit in Blue Pegasus, even Hibiki and the others don't know

Although i was already spoiled on who Alexie was(thank you Fairy Tail Wikia ),
An illusionary fight, i think the biggest cheating card of Raven Tail,as already mentioned Ivan is probably behind the secret that Makarov showed Gildarts, and now Laxus fights the Elites of Raven Tail(includes the guild master/his own father), i was expecting for Laxus vs Ivan but this is way too much,

So I'm going to guess that Laxus will win. If that is the case, the illusionary magic will disappear, and the crowd and officials will see 5 bodies on the field. What happens to Raven Tail after that?

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Well, I can't wait for the epic battle next episode. I mean Wendy really hasn't contributed much in the battle sense on her own up until now.

I really liked Miliana's fight and Eve's too. Too bad Eve's was pretty one sided. I liked the talk with Laxus since I LOVE his voice.
