Fairy Tail Zero chapter 09

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Fairy Tail Zero Chapter 09Mavis and Zeira return to the cathedral to warn Yury and Precht about the Tenrou Jade. Yury refuses to believe Mavis because Mavis wants the jewel returned to Tenrou Island. Mavis tries to explain about the true nature of the stone, and that it is dangerous due to having absorbed so much evil magical energy, which is why it was sealed on Tenrou Island in the first place.

As Yury continues to reject Mavis’s story, the jewel activates and causes Yury’s electrical magic to go haywire. The bone dragon becomes electrified, then becomes animated before beginning to rampage through the streets of Magnolia, the evil in the Tenrou Jade having swallowed up Yury and merged him with the bone dragon, which is giving it life.

Mavis climbs up to a roof and races across so that she can shout at Yury from a distance, pleading with him to not destroy the town. The bone dragon stops, then fires a breath attack at a stunned Mavis, who has to be rescued by Precht before she takes the hit. Precht argues for the destruction of the dragon, but Mavis wants to save Yury and the town. Now resolute, she tells Precht she needs to get closer to the dragon and vows to protect the treasure of friendship as she considers Precht, Yury, Warrod, and Zeria to be friends.

Thoughts/Review:

I have to say that I’m really enjoying Fairy Tail Zero.  Mavis is such a likeable character, and while she may be a bit naive and thus foolish at times, I love how resolute she becomes one’s her strategic mind works out a plan of action.

As things progress in this story, I’m starting to wonder if this is the story of how Mavis died. After all, her appearances in Fairy Tail show her to be about the age she is now, and that’s as a ghost. It would explain her grave being on Tenrou Island, and there’s nothing to say that her spirit form ran Fairy Tail initially until she passed the torch.  But I’m not current of the Fairy Tail storyline, so I may be full of hot air.

I’m still amused by Zeira because the whole “is she or isn’t she alive” thing hasn’t been resolved. It just sort of is, but it is at the level of, “well, does it matter?” The other factor in this equation is that there is no Zeira when Fairy Tail is founded.

Otherwise, there’s just not a lot to discuss on the chapter. It was mainly Yury refusing to believe Mavis’s story, being fused with the bone dragon, and going on a rampage. And yet, it was still quite enjoyable.

    A certain revelation in the Tartaros arc really puts Mavis’s…”situaton” in question.

    I’m really loving FTZero, this is what Mashima can do when he puts a month of thought into a chapter instead of a week. Don’t get me wrong I like Fairy Tail but it can be very formulaic.

    This is easily my favourite spin-off, although I haven’t seen much of Fairy Girls.

    I’m looking to seeing this animated, I’m sure it will be.

      You remind me that I have another volume of manga to read. I got to get to that.

      I hear ya. Although given how Mashima-sensei is as a writer, I can easily see him falling into a formulaic trap with Fairy Tail Zero too.

    I’m curious as to, wether that skeleton is the achnologia and how it links to mavis. My theory is that the achnologia gets revived in the storyline, mavis kamikaze’s in some form or other to repel him. He then spends about 100 years resting to restore his power, but is unsure as wether he can dominant the world, until he fights guitars. He then after tries to transform back into his human form, but discovers that mavis cursed him. Condemning him to his dragon form, while searching the world for answers. He feels Cana use fairy glitter, which draws him to tenroujima, as he grows closer to the island he feels mavis, guildarts and zeraf
    enraged for various reasons, he begins to overcharge his roar to destroy tenroujima.

      That’s an interesting idea. I’m not that versed on that dragon other than him being used as a plot device to send Fairy Tail forward in time. (Seems like there was something else involving that dragon as well.) But it sounds pretty interesting.
