I'm also still a bit puzzled on the God Slayer thing. I mean, Zancrow had a bit of an excuse since Hades got them the lost magic. But how did Orga and Cheria come by theirs?

Mest was annoying, and Jellal has focused in on the Zeref-magic feeling. Hmmm...
Did they outright say Cheria couldn't heal herself? I assumed it was the opposite of Wendy's Dragon Slayer magic in that she couldn't heal others, but I don't think they said she couldn't.

As to Cheria and Ogra I'd guess it depends on their backstories (if we ever get them). Sabertooth's master is a shady enough guy that I could believe him passing that onto Ogra. With the appearance of Zeref I wouldn't be surprised if some lost magics that had remained hidden somehow began to surface. But since Wendy and Cheria became friends maybe we'll get her story about learning God Slayer magic eventually.

Shellia heals injuries (for anyone), but can't restore energy. Wendy restores energy (only for others), but can't heal injuries directly. It's similar to the difference between Orihime and kido-based healing in Bleach (ch 382).

Wendy can also cast buffs and cure status ailments (for anyone), which we haven't seen from Shellia so far.

Except that Wendy was outright healing people in the arcs leading up to this. Her first few heals were bringing Jellal "back to life" from his near-death state, and then healing Erza's poisoning.

Right, Wendy is the healer+status buffer. The only person she can't heal is herself but she can cast status buffs on herself. For the reason why she can't heal herself: I think the healing bit is done by sharing her vitality with someone else, which is why it was so taxing on her earlier in the story and why Charlie was flipping out each time she did it. She was able to cast a Lvl 10 healing spell but it wiped out 3/4ths of her MP to cast it at a pop.

I think Wendy could theoretically heal herself, but it wouldn't have any practical effect. Energy gained from healing = energy spent by casting a healing spell

Those were both status ailments. (Poison, and Aetherion exposure.) I'm not positive that she can't heal wounds directly, but those aren't the best counterexamples.

At the least, she can heal small bruises, cuts, and whatnot. Nothing to go on for the larger wounds like a stab or hacked-off limb.

I think the issue was Cheria could heal herself, and Wendy couldn't.

Alright alright, here's how we can solve this.

Wendy: Her powers are basically RPG style stat boosting powers: Power up attack, defense, speed, evasion, etc.
Cheria: Her powers are basically leftovers style powers. Sure you can heal yourself just dandy, but it's not gonna stop your body from feeling the toll of using constant strong attacks.

I'm surprised that they did not have the crowd boo Minerva. That was a dark guild move she did, and the crowd was very silent.

Well well, this is some unpleasant news. http://animepaw.com/fairy-tail-tv-se...march-30-2013/ DAMN YOU Hs FOR TAKING MOST OF THE CAST BACK TO YOUR WORKS!, I'm just kidding, they're probably ending it because of how close the animé is to the manga.

Well that's a bit surprising. I figured they'd stall as much as needed to finish this arc. I'm not actively following the manga, but they aren't done this arc right? Won't that be a rather awkward stopping point?

Although this is kind of what I've always asked these series to do. When you catch up, stop until you make up some more space between anime and manga before starting up again. Rather than horrible filler arcs, or painful pacing, etc. I mean we could see they originally were going to stop around the Battle of Fairy Tail arc, so really we've gotten a lot more than expected.

Still, kind of weird if this is really true. Though in the end long as it comes back I'm ok with a break.

Kind of a funny episode, except for that Minerva part. She is good at making you hate her lol.
I really liked Juvia's part.

I was thinking today, I wonder when we'll get our next filler arc, or if we'll get one at all.

Fairy Tail sure knows how to party hard.
They are a menace to every tavern ^^
The games continue!
This time it's an interesting naval battle.
And it's like a swimsuit competition with mostly girls.
Lucy's Aquarius vs Juvia! Now that was a fight!
At least the crowds totally loved Lucy's celestial spirits ^///^
Minerva totally beat the crap out of Lucy on purpose.
Looks like Fairy Tail just got another enemy.
