Fairies never lose! Let’s go!
So we start off the episode with this!
Oh Rogue you done stepped in it now.
So after the opening we go to the Rescue Lucy team in the palace. Future Lucy explains that a swarm of 10,000 dragons will attack destroy the entire capital.
We go to Princess Hisui who confirms this and says that she will open the gate if the person that told her of the future is correct.
Side note: I just realized that Princess Hisui is voiced by Suzuko Mimori of Love Live fame. Yay, Umi-chan!
(cough) Ignore that idol fanboy moment and let’s get back to the show.
We go back to the Rescue team who shows looks of fear and confusion. Well except one person…
The others spitball ideas about where the dragons are coming from or what is their purpose while Natsu does…well just look.
Like that’s going to stop a dragon.
Future Lucy asks why do they believe her. Mostly because the story does sound a bit far-fetched.
After Future Lucy gets a quick scolding by Present Lucy, Carla finally connects the dots about the vision she’s had for like 20 episodes ago.
Yeah in the first episode we saw Natsu fighting against all the dragons so what did happen at the end?
After Future Lucy’s flashback she explains that she used the Eclipse gate to go back in time to July 4 X791.
But Arcardios seems to see something wrong with this.
Future Lucy advises Natsu’s group to go and meet up with Jellal’s group to figure out what to do next since she didn’t have a plan coming back to the past.
Arcadios also has a flashback showing how Princess Hisui got the idea for the Eclispe 2 Project. He concludes that if Future Lucy told Hisui about the Eclipse 2 then it was impossible for her to arrive on the 4th.
Future Lucy starts to worry about the future and how she was unable to do anything but all Natsu needs to do is this.
After that we go to Jellal, Ultear(she’s so hot and she’s got Miyuki Sawashiro as her voice in Japanese and Lydia Mackay in English!), and Meredy sitting outside out the city trying to figure out what’s true about what Future Lucy said.
We move back to Gajeel vs. Rogue.
Someone’s been busy laying down the smashdown on Rogue.
Rogue explains that he always looked up to Gajeel while he was in Phantom Lord but once he went to Fairy Tail he couldn’t believe it at the time. However over time he realized that it was because of friends and that Sabertooth doesn’t have bonds like that.
He says that Frosh is Rogue’s friend and Rogue agrees. Rogue is about to give up but something speaks to him in the darkness.
And his shadow tells him to kill Gajeel. Wow this looks like a badass battle after the commerial.
But we go to Natsu’s group back in the palace and other than Arcadios and Yukino leaving, the rest is all filler to make sure that the episode gets to 22 minutes. So I’ll make sure to skip that part and focus on the good stuff.
Back to Gajeel vs. Rogue.
Looks like someone’s about to get power up.
There is it!
So they start up the fight and it’s just better to show with pictures.
Wow, this is a good one. This is why the anime needed to come back!
During the fight Mavis comments that something must be possessing Rogue and it’s deeply evil.
After that we go back to Jellal and the others where they sense a spike in magical energy they realize that Future Lucy has just gotten into a battle but in the fighting she isn’t fighting at all. What’s up?
I could comment on the filler parts but I respect you all too much.
After that we have Gajeel completely owned by Possessed Rogue.
Looks like he’s about to kill him. Come on that’s too far for a game but it looks like things aren’t in the game territory any more.
Oh crap things are getting serious now! When Natsu ate Laxus’s Lightning, he became the Lightning Flame Dragon Slayer. Now what will Gajeel be when he mixes shadows with iron?
Oh crap. It’s about to go down it’s…it’s…
It’s the Iron Shadow Dragon!
And with that we end the episode. Can you even wait to see the battle of the Possessed Rogue vs. Iron Shadow Dragon Gajeel! Until next week,
