Mavis could just be concern about what happen to #2 and decided to keep a closer eye on the kids.

Didn't expect to see Mavis, lol. I somehow think she knows something, and wants to be here to witness it. To find out something. Though I keep expecting someone to question her on what she thinks about Hades real source of magic. If it were me, I'd ask, "Is he right? What is the origin of magic? Do you know?" I don't think anyone will ask, though, which will be a bit of a plot point that bugs me. I presume Mashima wants to keep that little secret for awhile.

Quatro Cerberus, eh? Aaaaaand we have our Red Shirt guild. Expect to see them trounced by someone. Either a guild like Sabertooth to showcase how badass they are, or Fairy Tail to showcase that FT is worthy of competition (or else they'll squeak by a win making their enemies scoff at them).

All female guild Mermaid Heel? I didn't think Mermaids had heels. ButI am dubbing the woman on the left, "Spider Woman." Waiting to see if she shoots webs...

Blue Pegasus has added a rabbit. Okay. I'm kinda expecting them to get curbstomped. At least Mr. Parfum will get curbstomped.

Lamia scale, that was obvious, too. Leon(no Sherry? That mames me sadface), Jura, Toby and the guildmaster's granddaughter, Sheilla. Should be interesting. Sheilla is also Sherry's/Shelly's sister? So Sherry/Shelly is a granddaughter of the guildmaster, too? And which way is that name spelled? I thought it was Sherry. Am partially expecting Lamia Scale to get beat down to showcase the baddass-ness of a guild like Sabertooth (or the mystery guild). Although shonen tropes would expect Leon and Gray to match up on something, and for Gray to win.

Raven Tail was expected. So they have become an official guild. And Ewan(Wasn't it supposed to be Ivan?) has been waiting for this day? Hmm, should be interesting. What do they have in mind?

And I guess we'll get the two new guilds next chapter, of which one has to be Sabertooth. And my guess is that the other guild will be one we haven't seen before, either.

My other speculation, is that perhaps this other guild will be revealed to be the main antagonists of the arc. Perhaps in such a way that will force the Sabertooth DS's to team up with FT's DS's. Wendy WILL be available for the final tournament event, sooo... *dun dun duuuuun*

One other bit of speculation I had... Rogue and Sting only think they are real DS's, and they only think they killed a real dragon. I'm betting some (small) amount of money they may have been tricked or manipulated in some way, to only think they had a dragon parent. If so, I'm betting that reveal will happen this arc, and in the end, we'll still be left with Natsu, Gajeel, and Wendy as the only 3 real DS's.

Other than that... kinda wish some of the names could be consistent. Do we have official English spells? Ivan/Ewan or Sherry/Shelly or Leon/Lyon?

Yes, Hiro Mashima has provided official English translations for each name. As of the latest English translation by Kodansha (taking over from Del Ray, who also had input), the names you mentioned are spelled:

"Ivan" (apparently Del Ray originally translated it as "Iwan" since it is spelled イワン (Iwan) in Japanese, but his latest appearance in the new Kodansha translation calls him Ivan, which I assume would be pronounced "ee-VAHN," like a Russian name)

"Lyon" (if it were "Leon," it would be spelled レオン (Reon), not リオン (Rion); if you were to watch the Funimation dub of the anime, it is pronounced "lee-OWN," kind of giving it a romantic language flair, just to distinguish it from "LEE-on")

"Sherry" (since her name is シェリー (Sherii) in Japanese, it's most likely a simple case of R's vs. L's)

People are just inconsistent when it comes to romanizing names, especially fan translators like the ones who translate most of the manga you see online, despite the fact that these official English translations exist; they either don't know about them or think that their names sound better the way they do it. Some people today still call Jellal "Gerard," because it's a real name that's written as ジェラール (Jeraaru) in Japanese, like his name.

Then again, apparently Hiro Mashima provided the names "Ur" and "Ultear, the tear of Ur." Considering some names are being revised by Kodansha, hopefully they'll rectify the situation and change Ur's name to Ul (since Ultear's name is still the same), because apparently Funimation did their take of the name in the English dub of the anime by keeping Ur's name and changing Ultear's name to "Urtear" (it's cool as long as the meaning of her name is the same). After all, Kodansha is also responsible for distributing the manga in Japanese, so there's no way they wouldn't have contact with Hiro Mashima.

Thanks for the info immblueversion, I still use whichever name comes to mind, imo as long as people know who we're talking about, there's no problem.

Wait, we weren't just mocking him when we were calling him "Jellal"?

I always called him Gerald when I wanted to mock him.

On an entirely unrelated note: Sherry's little sister is Kaname Madoka?

Tartaros, I call it now! Sabertooth will bit the dust and learn a bit about being less arrogant.

I think they killed their parents only because a parent won't dare to hurt their children, yeah, Rogue and Sting are heartless jerks.

Tartaros would have to stop being a dark guild too, you know. And we have no way of knowing how the remaining dark guilds will manage themselves without Tartaros.

Guys, take a look at the title for next chapter.

"Special Punks B Team"

Which is very close to Makarov's description of his Fairy Tail members.
Its gonna be Team Laxus, with the Raijin Tribe trio and most likely Gajeel.
It's very unlikely that Gajeel is in Raven Tail, because Pantherlily hasn't been seen lately, and I don't see him approving of RT at all.

Don't put words into my mouth. Most of the anime i watch aren't action ones, and i hate when action scenes go on forever. I'm just excited to see how everyone has grown with their powers and I'm anticipating the new folk' skills too.

That was something that did cross my mind but then thought even with Laxus I couldn't see the others breaking away from the guild to form their own.

Altho I can't say enough how much I'd love to see Laxus and the Raijin and Mirajane form a team(instead of Gajeel), that would be down right awesome!

It's as unlikely for Gajeel to be with Raven Tail as it is likely.

All we know is that Gajeel has been spying on Raven Tail, Raven Tail thinks he's spying on Fairy Tail, Makarov sent him on this mission in the first place, and neither of them have told anyone else about it. Now Gajeel is missing, as is Lily, and Makarov is concerned.

Maybe Makarov sent him to do an errand relating to Raven Tail. Maybe Gajeel is acting on his own accord without Makarov's knowledge. Maybe he really did betray Fairy Tail over those three months. Maybe Lily is off doing something to support him if Gajeel is acting out of Fairy Tail's best interest. Maybe Gajeel still hasn't told him about it and left him for some unknown reason. Or maybe absolutely none of what's going to happen is related to what we're talking about. In fact, maybe Gajeel isn't even anywhere near the event grounds.

My point is, until we see exactly what he's been up to, we have no reason to believe anything is impossible. We're just speculating on things based on what comes to mind when it comes to Gajeel and Raven Tail.

I don't think the master is actually Shellia's grandmother. It's more like how Natsu calls Makarov "gramps" (Jii-chan).
