Gerard is just so confusing that at this point it's kind of hard to sympathize with his character. Hopefully Mashima has a reasonable backstory for him.
Anyways, it's celebration time since the Fairy Tail Anime has been announced. Can't wait to see one of my favorite manga animated. Also, the chap itself wasn't so bad.
Erza's ok but like what was mentioned already, more Erza Gerard melodrama is the last thing this arc needs. Jura vs. Hoteye could prove very interesting, and if it wasn't blatantly obvious that Cherie was going to attack Gray I see Gray trying to defend himself and peacefully subdue her until Leon makes a surprise comeback.
As long as everything just keeps on flowing forward, then that's already enough.
Where there's a will there's a way!
