Fairy Tail Zero chapter 07

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Fairy Tail Zero Chapter 07 At their camp, a depressed Mavis goes to get water, lamenting her mistake in dealing with a big wizard guild and wishing she were stronger. While at the body of water’s edge, a teen male emerges from the water, apparently bathing. Mavis turns to avert her eyes and as the teen male leaves the water to get dressed, Mavis notices the forest around him dies rapidly. The now depressed lad explains that anything that comes in contact with him dies.

The lad is impressed when Mavis identifies what is happening as Akhseram Black Magic, one of the oldest curses known as “Contradictory Curse” since the power of the curse is enhanced by the cursed person believing they are robbing others of their life force. Hearing of how the teen travels alone to avoid people, Mavis asks if he’s lonely. The lad says he is happy now in talking to her, but he still worries that he might kill her, something he never wanted to do.

Mavis uses her illusion magic to create a whole host of creatures that cannot be killed by he lad’s curse. He is pleased by this, even if he can’t touch the illusions. Mavis asks him to teach her and her team magic so they can defeat an enemy. He agrees, so Warrod learns Wood Magic, Yury says he wants to learn lightning magic, and Precht is told by the lad that he has a lot of magical talent. Zeira appears to learn fire magic.

After a few days, the teen leaves, this time with Mavis and company his most treasured memory. Mavis wears new clothing and hair style as Mavis the Black Wizard.

Thoughts/Review:

So, a young Zeref is who taught Precht, Warrod, and Yury how to use magic. Mavis, who already knew illusionary magic, apparently learns additional (dark) magic.

Fairy Tail Zero Chapter 07

I gotta say, Mavis looks pretty cute as a dark mage.

The way the chapter ends, which are apparently the thoughts of Zeref, indicates that Fairy Tail gets formed in ten days, but that it might have been Zeref who killed her, as he expected. I’m not current with the Fairy Tail manga, so I don’t know what other interactions there’ve been between Zeref and Mavis (I recall one where he couldn’t see her, but knew she was there). It would be interesting and tragic if Mavis were killed by the dark magics she learned from Zeref.

Because I’m not current with what’s happening with Zeref, I do find it interesting that Mashima-sensei is making him a sympathetic character, which is not something new, since we’ve seen this sad part of him before in the regular Fairy Tail manga.  But, the current Tartaros arc is all about the Demons of Zeref, so I am interested in seeing how Zeref came to do what he did.

On the Zeira front, there’s nothing that happened to change the status quo on whether she’s alive, dead (as a ghost), or an illusion. She had no interactions with anyone save Mavis.

So now our pre-Fairy Tail team is powered up and the next chapter, I would guess, would be them re-confronting Blue Skull. Well, we’ll have to wait and see how that all goes.

    So.. did Zeref teach Mavis fairy magic? Probably will find out next chapter.

    I’m really enjoying this prequel, it’s really fun, has good pacing and some much needed backstory for the main series.

    Zeref indirectly being responsible for the creation of fairy tail is a pretty great reveal.

    I think this series is strongly tied to revelations in the Tartaros arc.

      Hmmmm…that is an interesting idea.

      Yeah, it has been fun. I’ve read the other two spinoffs (one with Gray as a kid and one with Wendy), but I can’t get into them. This one with Mavis has been quite enjoyable.

        Seems like Zeref is the master of Mavis and the founders of Fairy Tail… ironically he created the guild that will one day destroy him…

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          Well, I would say the teacher of Mavis more than the master of Mavis. But yeah, he does seem to be responsible for helping create Fairy Tail.

      • NML says:

        I feel like Gray’s story improves a lot once Gildartz shows up.

        Also all the prequels/spinoffs will probably be animated at some point which I’d really to see.
