Nice chap. As expected FT will lose the first round. Good guys always gets beat at first. Damn, Gray couldn't do a thing. I'm guessing Lucy will win her match against RT but would be weaken and be trashed again by Sabertooth. I wonder who would compete on team B. Their weakest link imo is Gazeel already and I don't think he would compete right away so I'll go with Mirajane.
And what's up with these early releases? I'm gonna get spoiled :p
sig made by me
To be fair to Gray, I'd be pissed too if I came in dead last largely thanks to one camping griefer.
Decent chapter, all things considered. I found Eve's method of descerning the real players to be rather clever, and the punishments that Laxus and Mirajane were picturing got a good chuckle out of me.
So now Gray has to do whatever Juvia says? ^^
The audience is kind of annoying with their Sabertooth bandwagoning, if they just turn around and start cheering for Fairy Tail at the end it's just gonna prove they're a bunch of hypocrites.
Bummer for Gray, sucks that he had to be the jobber here but hopefully that means Elfman gets a good showing seeing as they're usually the ones that take the hits. Natsu and Erza are too dominant to lose convincingly, and Lucy despite her rookie status wins a lot more than she loses.
That Narupuding guy is really irritating, it's gonna be too long before Gray puts that purple ball-chin freak in his place. Rufus is cool doe, I like that Gray has a worthy rival this time around. His magic is similar to Rusty's from Grimoire, but deals with memories? Wonder if it has any similarities with Mest's powers. I could see them duking it out later down the line in a battle, and I'd be down for Gray getting his payback there.
Lucy vs. the gothic chick next. I'm thinking draw, but Lucy's always a wildcard. Hope she goes with Loki, because he's awesome, or Caprico so we can finally get some insight into his skillset.
I find it funny how relatively innocent Laxus's and Gajille's ideas for what they'd make Team A do considering their history with each other. You'd think they'd be a bit more devious than what their initial thoughts showed. And even funnier when you realize it was those thoughts alone that gave them enough motivation to participate.
Anyway, it was a sucky hand Gray was dealt in regards to this contest. Certainly wasn't something suited for him and his abilities. Heck, I'm not sure anyone else in Team A would have fared much better when I think about it. Well, there'll be plenty chances to make up for it.
As for the audience, it's no surprise that they're Sabretooth bandwagoning. Fairy Tail's core members disappear and the guild turns to crap as a result. That doesn't give the crowd much of a reason to cheer for them, now does it? If they do wind up cheering for Fairy Tail in the end, it'll be because they earned the crowd's support, not because of hypocrisy.
Anyway, looking forward to the catfight. It's definitely a given that Lucy will go with Loki, and I'm sure Caprico will get his turn as well being the newest addition to the team. Let's see what the chick with the Rape Eyes can do too.
I think Lucy will be beaten here.
Too early for a Fairy Tail win.
You're right on the crowd, but the unfairness of the situation made it feel worse. Gray was jipped and I felt bad that Raven Tail essentially cost him the match. It would be pretty weird to cheer for a guild which has been on a downturn for the better part of a decade so I can understand the jeers and jokes, but dang it we know what they're capable of and they're gonna raise some hell!
but yeah great chapter i love how gray is just PISSED also im sure ivan has something to do with why they kept going after gray. next chapter will be cool. let hope we see a leo and Capricorn tag team!
