Yeah she had too much gilt hanging on her shoulders to fight back but anyway I think that was Milliana in the end somehow she got free, my guess is Jura stomped Minerva.
Milliana jumped in to protect Erza just as the old man and Simion did, that would explain everyone's shock.
Best way to get her to take out her sword. Perfect.
Hmmm, knowing Mashima...when blood is spilled and we don't know who it is...we might think it's Erza's...but I bet it's Kagura's.
It could be that:
1. Erza slashed her back waiting for Kagura to break her composure
2. Kagura got stabbed by a 3rd party or someone else jumped in and took the blow
3. Kagura stabbed herself out of random feels and some noble explanation ensues
That's at least how I see it. =/
The Mangastream version is out too:
Shows how much she cares for miliana to try to kill one of her oldest friends (Erza) like that.
So, with who have Minevra substituted Erza ? Choosing the Cat Girl sounds like a thing she would do, but, seeing as it's a plan devised by Sting, it might have been Jura. After all, Kagura believes that the unsheathed sword is capable of slaying Gerard, who is stronger than Jura. Otherwise taking down one of the 10 strongest magicians might be a very hard thing to accomplish.
maybe minerva switched erza with milliana at the last minute to drive Kagura nuts. Or maybe it was Minerva who was slashed by trying to sneak attack Kagura when she wasn't looking but Kagura knew she would and had been working with Erza on this elaborate skit to lure her in and then slash her
I believe Simon is still alive. I have this theory the he has somehow absorb the magic energy that was shoot out to space. He'll probably come back to save the day. He has a badass sister. He must have some hidden potential in him.
I never really liked Erza; Too much of a mary sue. I hope she did get cut.
