The episode opens with Rufus, you remember him guy that got owned by Gray a few episodes, waking up and remembering what happened.
After the opening we get a quick review of the scores with Fairy Tail in first place with 50 points followed by Sabertooth with 49 points.
Risley and the girls from Mermaid Heel comment that it will be hard for them to come back since they’re in last place with only 43 points but there’s no need to worry because they’ve got…
They’ve got Kagura, who’s voiced by Saori Hayami one part of the beautiful triangle that’s made in this episode.
But Beth(the carrot girl) comments that no one’s seen Millianna on the Lacrima vision for a while. They hope that nothing’s wrong…they are so wrong.
We go to the Rescue Team walking through the Hell Palace towards the exit. They talk about how Arcardios survived and what the Princess, Hisui, is planning. Until they find the exit.
Looks like they’re going to get out.
Who is this?
We flash up to the guys in the palace and Princess Hisui. They basically tell us what we already know. Fairy Tail came, they saw, they owned the Garou Knights.
Now we get the minister of defense, Darton, come up and question why she’s so happy that Arcardios, who was thrown into the Hell Palace with Fairy Tail has escaped since she threw him in there. Darton then realizes that Hisui not Arcardios is the mastermind behind the Eclispe Project.
Hisui comments that the plan that he’s heard about is only a cover plan but the Eclispe Project has another version, phase two. She states if Phase Two of the Eclispe Project doesn’t go into effect then all of Fiore will be destroyed tomorrow.
We head back to the Grand Magic Games(Finally!) where we see Juvia(ah my beautiful water mage) getting attacked by Chelia.
Turns out Chelia wants to fight Juvia because she’s getting all of Lyon’s attention. Aww…little Chelia has a crush. Now for some extra info. Now according to Chelia’s guild card, she’s fifteen while Lyon is twenty-six, eleven years her senior. So unless he wants to date a girl that young it ain’t happening.
Guild Cards are usually cover pages for manga chapters and they explain a lot about the character that hadn’t been seen while they were on screen. After the Grand Magic Games Hiro Mashima did a few months worth of guild cards for all the guilds that participated in the Grand Magic Games
Anyway thanks to Mavis’s strategy Erza heads up to the roof of some building where Mavis strategized that she would fight Minerva, the ace of Sabertooth. However this happens.
I’m giving you pictures but they don’t really do it justice. Imagine epic music and awesome voice acting alongside and you’ll get the picture.
Then Erza and Kagura clash and this happens.
Looks like Minerva’s joined the party and with that Kikuko Inoue joins the party! Three of my favorite female seiyuu about to duke it out. Thanks Fairy Tail!
Wow this is tense. Only pictures can convey this awesomeness.
Then Minerva uses I Ragado to trap Erza and Kagura in spatial bubbles then she uses one of the most badass spells in the anime, made even better by Kikuko Inoue’s beautiful voice.
So awesome but you know what’s better?
So Minerva changes up her strategy seeing as Erza and Kagura are stronger than she expected.
Oh so that’s where she went. Minerva explains that she’s sucking out her magic and sneers at Kagura and Erza’s anger.
We flash to the palace where Hisui explains that a person from the future told her of the coming threat and to make her believe he told her that one guild will win the Grand Magic Games with an unbelievable outcome.
We go back to the Hell Palace and Natsu confronts the hooded woman who begins crying, asking for their help. As she asks them, everyone notices her voice and she takes off her hood to reveal that she’s Lucy from the future.
So until next week,
