    Makarov died?\npfffttt……lol should we buy this for real?

    • Robin Purnama

      Yes, there’s no way that Makarov would be alived. Maybe he could be revived with Dragon Ball which is impossible.

  • KILOSHING

    ERZA, the next guild master. Officially. I hope Makarov really is dead. Knowing Mashima……well….yeah. Let his sacrifice be symbolic. I hope Mashima won’t waste his sacrifice and suddenly ressurect him. \n\nLet the old man rest. Sadly though, The others might get the news about his death late…

    • Alex Drake

      Fuck no. She is not worthy

    • Porthya

      Err, she’s already the 7th, the magic number, lol, even though they were addressing Makarov as “Master” out of use and respect.

      • LoveMeSomePhilly

        Naw they gave him the job back. It’s gotta go to Laxus. They have been indicating it since he was introduced into the story

    • Adnan

      Naaaah. Its gotta be Gildarts or Laxus. They may be a bit reckless, but they seem more rational compared to Erza.

  • Kemor

    WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK

  • Yukonissea Haruki

    This is for real people. No doubt about it.

  • Porthya

    I’d forgotten FL consumes lifespan, ugh, makes sense…If he is the one to die and never come back, I can live with it, it’s better than one of the young ones who should still get a future.

  • Yukonissea Haruki

    Erza vs Eileen next up!!!

    • Alex Drake

      No the title definitely refers to Natsu and Ugh Gray

      • Yukonissea Haruki

        Can’t say that for sure. Could also apply to the both of them.

        • Alex Drake

          Not really. Eileen and Erza don’t have a bond to break

          • Yukonissea Haruki

            Uhm, there is a possibility they had though. Erza’s backstory way back Tower is completely unknown.

          • Kemor

            Erza has no idea Eileen takes a part in this war. There are no bonds to break and Erza will definitely not have sudden flashbacks about whoever eileen was to her. Natsu and Gray will continue in next chapter

          • Yukonissea Haruki

            She’s right in front of her, lol. Why would she have no idea. She also saw her enchant those soldiers, and there is a chance that they will encounter with each other.

          • Kemor

            You do realise Eileen is at the top of the mountain? Inside the guild halls? Or at least in front of the main gate, anyway she’s not on the battlefield

          • Yukonissea Haruki

            You do also realise that there are no more soldiers and they can just go right up the guild?

          • Kemor

            It feels like I’m talking to a monkey that keeps throwing shit at its monitor. Erza has ABSOLUTELY no idea Eileen is with Alvarez. None. If she were to suddenly meet her and decide “hurr durr it’s you, I’m breaking our bond!” – ain’t happening. We don’t even know who they are to each other. Eileen ordered to kill her, I doubt they have ANY bond what so ever if she ordered that right off the bat. Next chapter WILL be about Natsu and Gray. Unless Lucy decides to throw Natsu away because of his appearance/attitude. Which won’t happen, because unlike Gray, she’s not retarded.

          • Porthya

            And why are you so hung up on the bond breaking happening in the current times or that it must be strictly from Erza’s perspective?! Have you skipped the chapters where even Zeref,one of the main antagonists, has flashbacks about a shared past and relationship with at least one main character?! Also, it could still have something to do with the Gray and Natsu conflict, as well as with other events on the battlefield.

          • Yukonissea Haruki

            The title says, “Broken Bonds”, which it already indicates that it is in past tense. You just can’t limit the possibility that they USED TO HAVE a bond, and because of certain events that we don’t know yet, it was broken. And please, this discussion is just an assumption, no need for nit-picking.

          • Serana Crossgrove

            Except Lucy and Natsu are retarded. Gray isn’t

          • Porthya

            They could’ve had one in the past and the title references the possible flashback to go with the confrontation…The title could refer to many situations in this war.

  • LP East

    Makarov is dead????\nI don’t buy it, Hiro has used this card so many times, he has taken the hype out of it, no one takes it seriously anymore

    • Alex Drake

      Nah I think this is definitely a death

      • LP East

        That’s what they said, about Juvia and Gajeel though…\nMost likely, he might turn out he will never be able to use magic anymore.

        • Alex Drake

          You realize those fakeouts were build up for this don’t you?

          • LP East

            I do, they were all led up, to the certain points in the story.\nBut they still doesn’t change the fact, that Hiro had us initially first believe they were dead, then brought them back.

          • Alex Drake

            Except Mashima said during an interview that there would be one death that would occur on the Fairy Tail side that would shake up the guild. Makarov as the loving grandpa being that death makes perfect sense.

          • LP East

            I didn’t hear about though, if I’m wrong I’m wrong. \nYeah it would make sense that Makarov would be the one to die though.

        • Yukonissea Haruki

          Lol you can already see his body, totally lifeless. So I have no doubts that he’s really gone.

  • Hentai Chef

    Laxus wasn’t even here to say goodbye…. I doubt this is the end for Makarov.\nIt would be a lame move from Hiro for Makarov’s last words to be to Erza and not his grandson.

    • LP East

      In any case, it might just mean, he will not be able to use his magic anymore, that seems the more likely route, Hiro would take.

    • Porthya

      Stuff like this happens in war-times. I’ve seen people complaining this arc doesn’t follow any war-specific features, but there have been many actual instances that went accordingly, including soldiers dying away from loved ones, regardless of being on the battlefield together. His words were to Erza as a guild-master(the 3rd) to another(the 7th), not just a parental figure.

      • The Real Tobi (Cana)

        LOL who’s died besides makarov

        • Porthya

          Nameless characters, but characters nonetheless, also the already infamous Bill(an early example of Bradman’s powers) and Beth. Beth actually has a full name, Beth Vanderwood and she was a Mermaid Heel participant in the GMG. Plus, I don’t buy the whole spiel with “nameless characters don’t matter”. \nDefinitive deaths have happened in this war before Makarov, just go back and look at Bradman’s 1st apparition, Wahl’s missile attack on LS and MH when they went to release Harugeon and what Larcade did to set DiMaria free. They killed their targets.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            I know nameless characters but most off screen that’s what counts he doesn’t show death so it’s offhand, it’s like oh they died off screen, then who cares it has no impact it’s just words on paper. Nameless characters don’t matter, so a whole bunch of grunts got killed okay, they were important to the story how? So instead of actually killing off characters with names Mashima just draws some nameless blobs to take the brunt it’s lazy. Also I see it going around on tumblr that Beth died but we never got a verification that she actaully did, it was just assumed.\n\nYup but nameless one and nobody that counted or just people who rarely if ever showed up no one that matters. THat’s what I’m talking about people who have something to do with the plot or are tied to characters. All we get is random nameless people dying off screen or in this case a flash of light.\n\nIt literally takes no talent to draw random characters kill them and say people died, so what there’s no impact on the story, am I supposed to be moved. We did not see Bosco get obliterated at all, it was just stated. It’s not like when Nappa arrived in East City and vaporized the place and we saw everyone die. If it was like that then yeah nameless people count, but we get one or two people knocked down that aren’t confirmed dead, or told that people died without seeing, ergo no impact at all.

          • Porthya

            You can’t write off deaths just because you didn’t watch all of them in gory detail(that implies terrible things about your psyche tbh) or because those people were nameless, there were enough that were shown on page and it’s already kinda harsh if you consider the reader-target of the work is placed at about the age of 14-17. \nWe got to see the missiles Wahl sent off touch on pages 4 and 5 of 467, we got to see dreadful blood splattering from the mouths of the soldiers attacked by Bradman in 485, page 17, which meant they received enough internal damage to kill them, since he was done playing with them. Larkade sent DiMaria’s guards souls “to heaven”, which again can be counted as on page death.\n There are many ways to render death on a drawn page and again, we don’t need gory details to know someone has died. In real life we weren’t witness to the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, but those people died nonetheless and to consider them “grunts” is beyond what “rude” can describe, and empathy and educated deduction normally fill in the gaps for what is not seen but merely reported. \nDeath remains death, the countless communities and populace Eileen simply erased from existence border on genocide and the impact is there, no matter how much of a blind eye you turn to or from the nameless.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Did I ever say they had to be gory? Nor does it say anything about my psyche lol, humans are naturally violent, I’m not overseas killing people for a living talk to them, they’re messed up. Maybe I want a little detail, I can write off deaths because if they aren’t shown they practically didn’t happen at all, if they aren’t shown it’s just said no impact. \n\nSo……..JoJo’s, DB/Z, Naruto, Bleach, Inuyasha, One Piece, Yu Yu, Shaman King, Hoshin Engi (Which featured a father forced to eat his son who was made into a hamburger), Ruroni Kenshin, Saint Seiya, Hokuto no Ken, Attack on Titan, need I go on? They are all in that age range………..and they have plenty of gory scenes hell I mean when Goku got shot through the chest with the Special Beam Cannon or Cell got the top part of his body blown off, or when Gero grabbed the guy through the roof of his car and made his neck a mangled mess all in the same age range as this, actually 12ish range too.\n\nBradman’s particles affect the lungs which is when blood actually comes out of your mouth, as shown with Laxus who still suffers this, that was explained early in the Tartarus arc. So for all we know they got a tuberculosis type effect not necessarily enough to kill them, not to mention none of them were shown dying per say just falling down, implied deaths not confirmed. Lol if you consider coughing up a little blood dreadful, please stay away from Go Nagai’s works your brain would melt. On the other hand it may introduce you into some amazing stories, Devilman is a great read. Yes we got to see them set off and touch down but we didn’t see the effects. This is a common complaint in modern superhero movies no civillians are ever shown harmed and it’s really unrealistic and boorish. One reason I’m looking forward to Logan because they’ve said Wolverine will be fighting for keeps and anybody that gets hit seriously, falls from a building, hit with a car or if a building crumbles, will actually die and not get a cushy child friendly bounce to safety. It’s fine to assume/imply death, but any tension goes away when nobody is shown struggling. They don’t have to be dead but even a little struggle or showing the battlefields and towns would be good, too. Mashima just gives them a passing mention or barely shows anything and then it’s up in the air if it happened or not. Plus it’s unrealistic that none of the fodder have died so far, yet Makarov was struggling. Some of them should have parrished this is a war after all.\n\nLakarde didn’t even kill them if you look back they’re blubbering on the ground in an enlightened state. So when a Priest in a series relieves a trapped soul that’s now killing? So Miroku is guilty of killing pour possessed people?\n\nThose people were vaporized, there was nothing left, and those that did survive suffered horrible burns and scars and radiation poison for generations.\nDon’t see any of this in FT, plus you’re equating Real life with a story. I never said that was the case in real life. In a story just killing nameless people that have no real part of the story doesn’t really do much for tension, so random guys got killed. SO we can plan on Natsu using some Nakama OHKO super special punch to win a fight that he was losing before his corny speach. (Happens every arc btw)\n\nLol Irene didn’t erase anything, she rearranged the land that was explained too, all those people just got moved around and even, then they never stated anybody died from it, you are just speculating.

          • Porthya

            I’m not equating, I’m making a parallel…between off screen situations. And for someone asking for “originality” in Mashima’s work, you’re also demanding for him to have an identical take on war and its consequences, as well as the detail of damage that gets showcased(which leads to the level of violence presented in his work), to the authors of DBZ and co. \n\nYou won’t decide if you want him to be unoriginal or do his own thing. You should be aware authors are humans as well and are free and bound to decide to just how much violence they’re willing to expose their public to. It’s not simply a matter of skill or laze, but also of choice. I’d say there was enough blood and gore and damage on the battlefield to not completely ruin the overall theme of the story that is bound to finish on a happier note than his previous serialized work, Rave Master. There’s nothing bad with an author’s preference in events with “a silver lining” and I do prefer the barely implied or reported damage to repeated visuals of people dying. I did give a go to Devilman (unfortunately I didn’t find a continuous serialization, not even to the “Neo” spin-off which i prefer, art-wise), and I do read or watch other serious pieces of fiction(manga or otherwise), but FT as it actually is, milder, is a nice reprieve from stuff like that. It’s still plenty dark, just not fully edgy. Even if many more mature mangas and novels do fit that age range, it doesn’t mean all should be the same, if all had the same level of realism in consequence dealing then we’d all end up depressed as hell or even unhinged, not that reality and the darker fiction don’t give us enough reasons already.\n\nAs for the “psyche” remark, I was referencing the “empathy” component, which actually makes us react to deaths and hurt(fictional or real) more or less, depending on its level. I actually don’t mean to offend, but it is scary to see people dismissing death unless it happens to someone they’ve “known”.\n\nAlso, it wasn’t actually our species’ cruelty and predatory instinct that kept us in existence and led us to the frightening number of over 7 billion individuals, but rather self-preservation(that most times has nothing to do with cruelty) and empathy. \n\nWe’ve only seen characters we know as unharmed by Universe One and the fact that even Acnologia could’ve ended up “in the middle of the sea”(while the freaking thing can switch forms and fly away), ordinary humans(you know, the 90% that don’t have magic) could’ve ended up likewise, or in other life-threatening places they’d never set foot in willingly. She also shrunk the size of Fiore, which brings to mind what Brandish pulled on Caracolle, which could’ve ended with thousands of deaths if not for the trading ships. And that while Brandish does showcase some empathy as opposed to Eileen who even turned their own army into mindless “puppets” and canon fodder. Not to mention that Larkade’s victims looked to me just as “alive” as those people from NnT whose souls had been devoured by the Commandments, just sayin’. As for tuberculosis, it is quite fatal unless treated and I’m yet to remember a healer on par with Wendy anywhere near the Northern battlefront, especially in the Ishgalian army. I’d say they didn’t just die, but that it was in fact agonising and we’re better off not having seen it.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Well hey the ship has sailed for Mashima to do anything original there are so many things in this war I can show you from other manga’s that it’s just hilarious. Also I’m talking about wars in general, I was merely giving DBZ as example, as this is what isnpired him to draw Rave and FT in the first place.\n\nYeah I know they are, but that doesn’t mean I have to sit idley by and just accept it, I’m allowed to criticize a series and it’s short comings, Mashima is not a deity who is above criticism and belittlement. I want him to be original in character designs, techniques, and other things, taking hints from other series that have done wars much much better is not a bad thing. I’m not saying he needs to copy them word for word, but at least take notice of how it’s done in other series, that I’m fine with if he needs help, but don’t slightly tweak the Shichibukai and call them Oracion Seis, or have Gray turn evil get a curse mark and have Natsu’s “inner demon” fight them and talk about bonds, or any of the other examples I’ve given in the past. \n\nIt is also lazy, if you’ve bought any of the manga volumes and read the interviews and blurbs, Mashima speaks on his process and he’s admitted to throwing things together at the last moment and hoping they work. It’s also obvious that he tries to cram to many things or focuses on fanservice and ends up messing things up, or like in Brandish’s case he created a character with a story breaking power and had to come up with a bad reason to turn her good, when Brandish could literally win the war with a snap of her fingers. You can still finish on a happy note and have blood shed that’s not impossible. Wars are violent and deadly, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows and minimum casulaties for the good guys, that’s just BS. FT hasn’t been dark in forever, it’s lost any suspense or tension it once had well before the timeskip due to the repetitive formula of the good guys always winning, and it’s the same thing each arc. Enemies supposedly far stronger then thought possible beat FT, FT does no training, regroups, gives a friendship speach, randomly gets stronger, Erza asspulls a fight and Natsu gives a corny speach and finishes the enemy off anticlimactically.\n\nTrue but making people joyous and happy doesn’t prepare them for real life, sure it’s an escape, but that’s what series like Pokemon are for. When you’re telling a story and there’s no consequences for the heroes besides a few scars, and almost everyone turns good, it drains all tension out of the manga. I can’t feel bad for Makarov’s sacrifice because well he’s pulled this stuff before, and it’s hard to take it seriously. Gajeel “died”, Mirjane “died” Juvia “died”, and they all came back in no time at all. When there’s no loss on the main characters side and he does the repetitive arc formula it just gets predictable. One Piece while the main heroes don’t die, Oda manages to keep the fights varying I never would’ve guessed Luffy beating Biscuit like he did, and I honestly don’t see how they’re going to save Sanji. With FT I could easily predict how they would save a person in that situation.\n\nI would feel for death’s in FT if they count, I hate to admit this but at 25 years old I can’t watch Fox and the Hound without crying, and the Lion King gets me too, History of Trunks if my favorite DBZ special, but I hate to watch it because of Future Gohan’s death, it’s meaningful and passionate and the death counted for something and we know that future was ruined. I cried when Misato blew herself up to give Shinji time to get into Unit 01, and I cried when Konan died, I couldn’t even watch the anime version they added in her gasping for air and kicking her feet about. Though in all of this my favorite character in fiction, Cana. If she died, I can’t say I would cry….why becaue Mashima has shown that these death’s don’t count for anything they are brought back, I would be depressed but I would not be able to feel a deep connection like I had with those mentioned before, even though she is my favorite, Mashima has just done this with the lack of tension and loss.\n\nHell, I get depressed my great uncle just died a few weeks back, and just this thursday my Grandfather went into surgery for brain tumors, that may have bought him a little more than a year, he would’ve died next week, I feel these things for sure. The thing is though I used to feel for every single bad thing in this world, and to be honest deep down I still do, BUT it left me depressed and I had to get into the mindset if I can’t do anything about it I have to move on. I’m in medical school working on becoming a nurse in order to help, people and I hope to get a doctorate someday in psychology in order to help those that are suffering. It’s just in FT I can’t feel this because Mashima has made it so happy in the atmosphere, that loss is all bot lost.\n\n\nTrue but you can’t deny that humans have a tendency for irrational behaviour and left to our own devices without fear of repurcussion we would break down fast, just look at the riots and terrorist groups around the world, sure some is mental illness, others are being manipulated, but others are just sadists who do it for their own benefit and power, the cartels come to mind. They’ve done so many inhumane things it’s just sickening….there’s something in us all that if we gave into anger we would fall apart.\n\n\nTrue, but I was assuming you meant they were simply eliminated, we have yet to see what happened I thought she purposfully sent him there to get him away. True but it’s also good they can swim, vicious sealife and those who can’t would’ve died of course.\n\nEileen is one so far who has been willing to use people like that and it’s a refreshing change usually the villains are redeeming or aren’t as quick to do so. True, they were more Poison Peach Tree victims from Inuyasha still alive just in a different state. Sorry, I was thinking of the monk he absovled that worked for Naraku and became tainted with evil, and Miroku let him pass on, he did it two at least a few others too.\n\nTrue it is deadly but we don’t know how much they inhaled,but then again Laxus was only able to absorb as much as he did because of his Slayer magic. I don’t deny it was probably painful, but they probably worked out something or at least stopped it or contained yet they are probably still in agony.

  • Looks like we finally have the death of an FT member unless of course more BS happens.\n\nMy original prediction was that it would be Lacard/Rahkeid fighting Acnologia, I remember Zeref talking about him being able to remove the souls from Acnologia.\n\nMy guess for next chapter would be Natsu VS Gray.

    • LoveAnimation

      If Makarov stays dead i wonder if people can finally shut up about the whole death thing in Fairy Tail.\nBut i thought that would happen when Igneel died and nothing changed.

      • Zanji Suzunami

        Remember when Simon died? And those guys from Grimoire Heart died too.

        • LoveAnimation

          Plenty of characters have died in Fairy Tail but people only seems to care if its a member of the guild.\nWell a member of the guild died it seems so i hope people will stop complaining about this now.

          • Sweatysocks

            The problem is not characters not dying. It’s the way it’s written how it seems like characters will die from something, but then they are saved, and the way it keeps happening just makes at least me stop caring when “near death” situations happen, since I know there’s absolutely no way they will die. It would be better in my opinion if they stopped adding situations where a character gets close to death if it won’t happen anyway, and then we don’t need to see bullshit reasons for saving them either.

          • Konci Park

            I think Mashima is saving the drama for Natsu…

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Lol barely any characters have died besides no counts and off screen deaths.\n\nAlso no, I mean it’s one guy out an entire country that died, plus Makarov has been set up to die about 90 times now it’s about time he died.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Because it only adds drama when it’s a member of the guild, if the good guys always when snore fest

      • The Fabulous Wombat

        It’s not about death itself, it is about what death means. If no Fairy Tail member ever dies, then there is no tension and unpredictability in fights. When you kill of a character here and there, that gives you tension because you constantly keep the thought of “I dunno who is gonna win, will they even survive?” on your mind, and that is what gives the fights excitement. For the most part, Fairy Tail suffers from a major lack of tension in it’s fights (and the pacing of the fights itself doesn’t help either, they feel like they are over before they started).

        • LoveAnimation

          You know that the good guys are going to survive and be safe at the end of most of the arcs in these mangas but people only make a big deal about in Fairy Tail.\nIn all the many shounens i follow important good guy characters very rarely dies and only a few has died so far and in some of the series i follow no good guy characters has died at all.\nIts how the characters are going to defeat the villains and make it out of the danger alive that is supposed to make this stuff interesting and exciting and not the posibility that the characters could die at any moment.\nIn American superhero stuff characters almost never stays died but people still love it.\n\nThere does not need to be death for this stuff to feel exciting and have tension and i think the fights in Fairy Tail are the same as the fights in all the other shounens when it comes to that stuff.\nHonestly most of the time in Naruto, Bleach, oriko, Magi, Yu Yu Hakusho, Dragon Ball, The Seven Deadly Sins, One Piece, My Hero Academia and most other shounens do you really believe there is a posibility that the good guys are going to be killed by the bad guys?\nI hate that people makes this sound like a Fairy Tail only thing when its a shounen thing in general or an adventure and action thing in general actually.\n\nNobody died at all in One Piece for 574 manga chapters before Ace died but it was still one of the most popular mangas and animes ever and im sure most people felt it was exciting and that there was tension and still after 841 chapters Ace and Whitebeard are the only good guy characters that has died so far.\nThe only bad guys that has ever died in One Piece was Monet and Vergo so during the huge majority of One Piece you can be sure that nobody is going to die both on the good side and the evil side.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Yeah we do because in FT no one dies and there’s no tension.\n\nYou don’t follow enough Shonens then. I know plenty where they die and don’t come back.\n\nWe know how they’ll be beat in FT , with some BS Nakama power after a friendship speach every damn arc it’s the same thing it’s boring. FT can’t win the enemies are too strong, then friendship magic they are able to overpower the enemy that can’t be overpowered with no training at all and bam OHKO every time dude. Dude get your shit together so many characters die in american comic books it’s not even funny hell there are alt worlds where they are brutally killed off Earth 2, where Wonder Woman is stabbed in the gut, Superman is sent to permenant torture and Batman dies in a suicide bombing trying to stop Darkseid. Plus it takes years for them to come back not mere chapters, and Tim Drake just died to in a very brutal death.\n\nUh yeah it does, maybe if you’re mentally ill and guillable it doesn’t but when there’s no death there’s no point. Why even got thrilled in a fight if you know the good guys going to come through in the end with some BS Excuse.\n\nUh yeah and it has happened remember Jiraiya, Asuma, Minato, Piccolo, Tien, Yamcha, Goku, Vegeta, Yusuke, Ace, Alibaba, Kakashi, Whitebeard, Yamamoto, Kyoraku, I mean practically the entire soul society was wiped out dude, stop being blind.\n\nIt is a FT thing because other series have the guts to kill off characters, you’re just to blind.\n\nHey here’s the thing they DIED AND THEY STAYED DEAD FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOT THREE FUCKING PAGES, FIVE PANELS, OR A SINGLE CHAPTER. It took a year for Goku to come back story wise and even longer chapter wise same for Tien, Yamcha, Chiaotzu, and Piccolo. Same for the Sailor Scouts they came back at the end of the arc not in the middle like oh I’m back fanservice time. Yusuke died right off and it took him the first entire arc to come back, the second time he had a false death, and he had a good reason it was his demon blood, not Oh I shrank the wound even after it hit my heart, which would do squat. Also wrong not everyone was alive at the end depending which version of DB and SM you are using so……\n\nAlso you’re wrong on One Piece plenty of people died haha, jesus and on screen too. You needa reread it man. Do I need to list the people who died in One Piece, I have before but you apparently can’t remember it every time I list it. Also dude Oda has a way of being unpredictable. I never would’ve thought Luffy would beat Biscuit like that, and I don’t know how the Straw Hats are going to save Sanji, because Oda is unpredictable. Mashima he’s so predictable anyone with half a brain cell already knows how this arc and all the fights are going to end.\n\nMashima it’s the same thing every arc, and this was an obvious thing the entire time, I mean Fairy Law should’ve been used from the get go and now Mashima just conviently throws in it uses up your life span as an excuse for sacrifice jesus man stop drinking the flavor aid.

          • Matthew Joseph Addai

            *Sigh* The issue people have with Fairy Tail is how death is handled as a whole. Yes the death and revival of heroes is a troupe within Shounen that is overused however series like Dragon Ball had logical plot devices employed from the very beginning to deal with it, plus even then it wasn’t always straight forward and there were certain conditions that had to be met (although I suppose the inclusion of the Namek Dragonballs did relieve some tension regarding death). Fairy Tail is a series which sets up supposed deaths, only for characters to end up alive through some BS plot device. I agree that series like One Piece and Nanatsu no Taizai are quite guilty of this too similarly, but Fairy Tail is the Shounen which does this too many times and it cannot be denied. The author himself has had to explain why death is treated the way it is in the series, and frankly speaking his excuse was incredibly lofty. Series like Bleach, DBZ and Naruto dealt with death as a whole a lot better than Fairy Tail ever has or ever did. At least even if a character was dead, they would actually stay dead for a fair while before they were revived, and in a way that was dramatic. Fairy Tail generally fails to do this. Look what has happened with the cases of Makarov, Juvia and Gajeel. Makarov should have died a loooooooooong time ago, and the Juvia “death” was one of the lowest moments in this arc for me in terms of the resolution. At least show Wendy spotting Juvia and making her way to her for pete’s sake as a cliffhanger or something. Not have her pop randomly healing her. As for Gajeel, I will give him a pass, as Mashima could have made it such where as he was just stuck in Hell, and later brought him back. That said, this death looks and hopefully is legit.

          • MetalHead

            The only people that died in this manga are villains. No good guys has ever died in this dam series.(Not counting flashing back or dragons.)

      • illidan

        The think is, Igneel was already dead or something so they didn’t count it. Too bad people forget the first character that died in Fairy Tail, Simon. That thing hit harder than I thought.

        • The Real Tobi (Cana)

          Simon died when FT was good, Igneel was off screen and already dead.

      • TheInfamousEddy

        I’m guessing you haven’t read Hiro’s response to why he treats death how he does in FT..

        • LoveAnimation

          There are moments where it looks like characters dies and later it turns out they are still alive in all of these shounens so its not a Fairy Tail or Mashima only thing.\nI can remember many times stuff like that has happened in the other shounens i read or watch and One Piece for example has done it hundreds of times.\nThat stuff about a character not being dead unless its actually confirmed hes dead that your talking about from that article seems to be how it works in shounens in general.\nSailor Moon is not a shounen but even that series did it a couple times.

          • Kyra Taylor

            NO I HATE SAILOR MOON!

          • LoveAnimation

            I love Sailor Moon. 🙂

      • Ensaru64

        Not a chance. FairyTail uses death for cheap drama, and worse, it’s often played out. When you cheapen it too much people will eventually stop caring when characters eventually die. \n\nAs with the old man, I’m not even bothered by what he did. At this point, whether he dies or not is no longer a concern to me. Not to mention that his death already feels cheap due to the fact that Mavis already had a plan in mind and that it seems he’s just gonna die to fill a death-quota.

    • Gabriel Garcia Ruiz

      Igneel, Simon, Preach, Org, Zera, Mard Geer, Kyoka, Jackal, Lahar, Azuma, Ur, Wahl, Bradman, Serena, Atlas, they’re dead in FT, and almost a pair is important for the Fairy Tail Guild Members

      • Alex Drake

        Grandine and Metalicana are dead too. Same for Sting and Rogue’s dragons

        • Ruum90

          The dragons don’t count we barely knew them they only came back for a few chapters plus they stated they already died long ago.

          • Symbol de Au

            But it’s still impressive they’re actually dead lest we forget Lisanna.

      • Darth Vader

        But none of them are main protagonists.

      • TheExorcist95

        almost everybody that you mentioned are or was a bad guy, only if you are evil you die, but if you are in fairy tail you will no die

      • Robert Orwell

        You’ve forgotten Keith, Tempesta, Trafzer, Belno, Silver, Ikagura, Jiemma, the ex-President and the entire nation of Bosco. About Jackal, I love the fact he has killed by Lucy, one of the sweetiest characters of the show who hadn’t, until that moment, killed not even a fly. I might have forgotten someone, so, if I have, just name them.

        • The Real Tobi (Cana)

          They are all unconfirmed

          • illidan

            Keith, Silver and Ikagura are definitely dead. Silver was just a coprse and he even disappeared afterwards. We saw Juvia blowing up Keith and him disappearing as well.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Jackal, Jiemma, and Trafzer are unconfirmed actually, they were never shown actually dying just left there.\n\nSilver was already dead, and he was killed off screen to begin with\n\nBelno wasn’t important and showed up rarely, written off like the rest of the Councile as spare parts never actually showed their death\n\nBosco wasn’t shown just stated had no impact whatsoever on the story at all.\n\nIkaruga was also off screen and just shoved in to give an extra enemy for Erza to relive, she was alive last time, not sure how she died unless Neinhart was hunting them.

          • Little Miss Truthful

            Jackal is dead, one of the other demons (I think it was Tempest) said that he felt Jackal’s magic disappear or something like that. So if Tempest feels Jackal’s magic is gone, and then Silver says only one is alive, and then we have the blank eyes…

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Blank eyes don’t mean much though it can be anything from fainting to just knocked out cold, if they aren’t killed on screen it’s hard to know if they are truly dead. I mean seriously, if Natsu knocked out an enemy and his eyes went blank and then walked away. There’s no way to know if he’s just knocked out or dead. Mashima isn’t good with detailing things leading to these sorts of discussions.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Never argued Keith.\nAs for Silver, yeah I know he died but it wasn’t shown, only his “zombie” form was put to rest on screen\nIkaruga was off screen and must’ve died between her fight with erza and now, unless she was caught up in Etherion, but I still think she was shoved in just to get one more enemy for Erza\n\nMy point is there aren’t that many on screen deaths, so people die but it’s rarely shown.

          • Robert Orwell

            Ikagura has been killed when the Tower of Paradise collapsed and exploded. Silver was undead, it’s different from being utterly dead. Jackal is dead, Lucy’s enhanced Uranometria killed him, Silver confirmed his death when he said: “So now only one lives” in chapter 386. Trafzer is shown with blanket eyes too, and, also Jiemma, and everyone fond of manga know that blanket eyes after being defeated means the fighter is dead.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Unconfirmed we never saw her die it’s just assumed. Silver was undead, yes but he was killed off screen the first time so it doesn’t really count. His soul simply passed on different from being killed. Jackal was never confirmed dead he jus dissapeared as well, his official status is unconformed same with Jiemma, and Torafuzer.\n\nThat’s not true how do we know they aren’t just knocked out they’re death’s weren’t confirmed. Lol no plenty of manga have blanket eyes for knocked out they could be roaming around, they were never actually shown killed, they could just as well be knocked out.

          • Porthya

            Silver confirmed Jackal’s death as part of the remaining Kyuukimon’s reactions to the Urano Metria. He said “So only one lives” implying only Lucy was still alive at the end of that fight.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            He could’ve been talking about that Lucy was the only one free from the prison.

          • Porthya

            Silver’s line was in the series of reactions after Lucy and Jackal (with blank eyes) fell to the ground after Urano Metria, there’s no “could” or “would”. It was a reaction to the consequences of that fight.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Eh you say so, he’s still listed as unconfirmed at the wikia

          • Porthya

            Manga translation says so and wikia can be edited by anyone(there’s leeway for any of the 2 to be wrong, but I’d rather go with something I read in the actual story), including people who misread a situation; if you can provide a verifiable version of the actual Japanese text which makes Silver’s line ambiguous in meaning, then there’s an argument. Otherwise, Silver has accurately judged Jackal’s state.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            I know Wiki’s can be edited by anyone but this does not make them untrue. A common misconception really and if you’ve ever been to the wiki, it is a very very very super tight ship, everything is peer reviewed and constant debates go on before anything is changed….I’ll take a lot of people who spend way to much time on FT over some random fan so…..\n\nYou mean what you are interpreting from the story. Perception is everything. You may be biased, over analyzing or under analyzing. Hence why it’s better to discuss it out with people. Depending on how it’s read it can be a entirely different story. For example, with my perception Erza is a very abusive, petty person who is not above physically, emotionally, and in the christmas special sexually abusing her friend out of sheer jealousy and childishness, she has no redeemable qualities and makes this story a horror to read because of the plot armor and the sheer BS that goes into her writing. While others see her as the best character to ever exist. I could edit my view into the FT wikia, but you know what it wouldn’t stick as the admins would discuss it over and due what’s right.\n\n\nWhy don’t you provide proof that it isn’t ambigious? He said his magic power is gone, you know who elses magic power is gone Ultear and Chelia, and they are still living. He did not state he was dead, just his power vanished. It could be one left standing not one left alive, again it’s about perception and how you read it.

          • Porthya

            I’d love to see those members of the “tight-ship” doing something about those huge chunks of horribly edited and misspelled articles on mains or protagonists of quite popular mangas. I do remember the time I took the bother of rewriting a paragraph in one character’s bio once he’d been confirmed(just as many had suspected for ages) to have lived for thousands of years, as opposed to a few hundreds of years and was written in hardly legible English. A week later it was back to the previous form, although I’m more than sure that the edit was saved, since I was debating a subject with someone in the comment section after a refresh.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            You’re equating the FT community to all wiki’s they are different, there are plenty of wiki’s that are run down and have no proper control and are indeed full of inaccurate info, the FT wiki is the best one I’ve seen.

          • Porthya

            I still don’t take it for error-proof.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            I never said it was 100% error proof, just that it’s more reliable than a lot of them.

      • The Real Tobi (Cana)

        Simon was killed on screen,\nI guess you mean Precht, he was killed on screen\nOrg was small fry and rarely showed up killed kinda on screen\nMard Geer was killed on/off screen his book was burnt what is he a Mamodo? Didn’t even have the grace to wipe his body out.\nKyoka was on screen\nWahl was on screen\nBradman was on screen\nSerena? The toad guy or Sayla, cause she was absorbed by Mirajane\n\n\n\nZera was killed off screen, and still lingers.\nJackal is unconfirmed\nAzuma merged into Tenrou Island, so he didn’t die\nUr froze herself and still “lives” on in the Sea near Tenrou\nAtlas was off screen

        • WhatsAname

          Technically Zera was never a true character, she was just an illusion.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            That’s true, her spoiled child self appeared for a small time and that was it

        • Gabriel Garcia Ruiz

          Ikaruga not die on screen, Azuma either, nor Ur saw her die on screen, Jude, among others none of them died on screen, we know that died that there would still be alive Neinhart could call upon any.\n\nIt just shows that the characters that die FT is not False.\n\nIf you talk about the Protagonists, that happens in many sleeves, and before they leave with illogical things I remind you that a popular character who dies necessarily is not a protagonist, it may be a recurring character or a secondary with some importance, for now in Modern Nekketsu Shounen I have not seen any real protagonist die, and at least two of the most popular not killed any lead.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            I know Ikaruga was off screen Azuma merged in the ground, and Ur still lived on in the ice that sealed Deloria. How do we know Neinhart didn’t just use illusions and called it necromancy?\n\nyou must not read a lot of shonen then….even if they come back eventually thats fine but they at least die, lol Naruto died, Ichigo died too, so yeah….

          • Gabriel Garcia Ruiz

            What Protagonist died in Naruto? Neji? He was already more a background character at the end, the death of Neji is considered as a simple filling even among fans of Naruto, who considered it a simple excuse for NaruHina, if those we were the death of Neji would have the same weight Lahar’s death or Org. ¿Jiraiya? he was not a main character, was appellant, his death would become an equivalent to that of Igneel, if you talk about PROTAGONISTAS in Naruto The main characters are Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura and Kakashi …. and I have news for you, 4 still alive and well in overtime. Do not confuse players with recurrent or significant side.\n\nBleach …. Does the Old Yama? Old barely reached recurrent and after seeing the end of Bleach, many Bleach fans believe that his death was a fanservice created to attract people to the world of Bleach New account out of it Who died of PROTAGONISTAS (Ichigo, Orihime, Rukia, Byakuya)\n\nNow that Naruto Murio When? The just stay out of a few minutes, I did not die, he was saved by Sakura, like Ichigo, he never died, he stayed close and came there.\n\nIn which case if you talk about resurrections, that’s worse than the “never was dead,” that detracts from strength to death to revive the characters each as possible and die loses all sense as dramatic act\n\nLo Neinhart the same manga and character tell you and said the same author, all character created by Life Maker Neinhart is someone who is already dead point, is not necromancy (the same Keyes said it when he was brought ) is a recreation of someone killed with his memories and total skills\n\nBefore you accuse me that I do not read manga, first analyze your own situation friend. that read manga for many years and this pattern has always existed, the sleeves that do the opposite are not the norm, are the exception

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Neji, Jiraiya, Gaara, Naruto, Asusma, Kakashi, Sasuke, Minato, Hiruzen, Obito, Shizune, Chiyo, Itachi\nToo bad it had more impact as org and lahar appeared in little to no chapters at all, compared to Neji who had quite a presence and was a rival of Naruto. Haha Igneel was already dead before the series even began dude, he died off screen what we saw was an afterimage. To bad Igneels death had no impact like Jiraiya’s did, Jiraiya had more presence on screen then Igneel ever did. You can’t really differentiate, I guess you have your mouth sewen to Mashima’s ass and just eat that shit he spews typical.\n\nHey guess what Naruto, Sasuke, and Kakashi all died, they were brought back but they did die, and it wasn’t a chapter later and it wasn’t \n\nYamamoto was a guiding presence throughout the series, Hitsugaya, Rangiku, Rose, Kensei, Nemu, Ukitake, all died they were brought back through Zombie resseruction but they did indeed die. Ichigo also died when Ulqiorra ran through his hear and his hollow side revived him.\n\nYup but he did in fact die he was in limbo, his heart stopped a la clinical death, same with Sasuke they were in limbo that’s why they met Hagoromo they would’ve died without his powers\n\n\nNope it’s not and hey guess what Mashima doesn’t even give em a month they come back in the same chapter, the next chapter, or just a few pages. At least in other series they do in fact die, and there is sacrifice to bring them back or it takes quite some time to bring them back but in FT, nope not even serious wounds to the heroes a few stab wounds and scars that’s it, and stupid I’m not dead at all insert BS reason here. Haha you mean like it has in FT where there’s no sense of loss at all, Makarov’s death doesn’t have any impact because all the death’s in FT are cheap and poorly done and never permenant, except to arc characters and bit players. \n\nHaha anything manipulating the dead is necromancy maybe brush up on your definition skills. Necromancy is a broad term.\n\n\n\nLOl nope I’ve read manga for most of my life and there are plenty of series that have their main characters die, you just haven’t read them even if they come back they at least die. Not as bad as it has been in FT, it’s the most predictable series.

          • Gabriel Garcia Ruiz

            Of course, boy, you just said the most illogical thing I’ve read, ALL \nMangas become predictable and the same Naruto fans can tell you that \nyour series.\n\nDeaths\n that you quoted were characters who were not major or leading roles, no\n matter how popular they are, as in the case of Gaara and Naruto, they \nwere revived after a while, so it does not generate importance, but I \nnotice that your fanservice want to give you Deaths, crave that fan service, because that way you seem to sienets serious or something.\n\nBleach is the problem that many “deaths” not imported because at the end everyone ended revived too.\n\nNo\n matter ripe how you want sound and how knowledgeable you want to put, I\n only see the classic boy who believes that he knows a couple of sleeves\n Mainstream believes it has the authority to decide who is right or \nwrong in the world of Manga / Anime, by Of course.\n\nUnderstand, however much you believe that, does not give you the \nreason, because the sleeves are not made for you and before you say \npalabbras as predictable, first you would have to show ya exactly as end\n the arc.\n\nWhat will defeat Zeref? That’s\n Obvious, around sleeve must defeat Malo in Naruto defeated Madara, \nObito and Kaguya, I knew, everyone knew that Naruto would Hokage, we \nknew that there would be a Naruto vs Sasuke, basically we knew \neverything from how it would end, I\n do not see why say that is predictable, and I imagine that’s why you’ll\n say “we did not know how things would occur outside of the obvious” \nWell, here is exactly the same, we know that good must win, it is his\n obligation by the audience it is, but I’ve seen a lot of people make \ntheir predictions and no scoring practicamenet how things would occur. That\n is how obvious it must pass in the genre of Nekketsu is the only thing \ntruly predictable here and everywhere, the method to reach it, whether \nyou like it or not, do not know how it will be because no one imagined \nwhat the FL, Encounter Gray or Natsu vs, neither of Larcade, or Irene.\n\nSo\n you try to have a broader perspective and tries to stop believe \nyourself superior, because you’re not only’re a person more than he had \nthe chance that his parents buy him or pay him the Internet and watch \nfree something, and only therefore\n believe that you can criticize without contributing anything to the \ngenre, it does not speak well of you, if at least, you will provide \npromoting something, maybe you could have a real right of reply, but I \nonly see the desire to believe you know everything when you really here,\n all we\n know that the Manga is Fictitious, which is guided based on your target\n market is Japan and not to the taste of a person who does not buy or \npay for and still believed in the right to treat ignorant that if they like and if they pay for it.\n\nI’ll\n remember, the objetiivo Publico is Japanese, if the Japanese like \n(which have shown pro the great success of the Museum of Fairy Tail in \nJapan and achieve remain among the 20 best and most sold mangas despite Shounen Magazine does not handle large marketing campaigns that Jump) \nit indicates that there are more people who like and is handled that \nthey dislike\n\nWith that I end point, for I see that your obsession with wanting to \nbe “Deaths” is insane and will not change and I leave you, you want \nanswers that do not interest me comments from someone who treats others \nof uncultured\n\nGoodbye and God bless you

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Yes they do to an extent but FT has become so predictable it’s not even funny\nThey had connections to the main characters and were prominant, they were named they had screen time they spoke and they did stuff. FT hey just have bit characters who speak two sentences or appear in an arc. They are still prominant secondary characters. FT only kills off territary characters.\n\nAH but they stayed dead for more then a few pages, and more than a chapter and more than 4 chapters as we got, they died it had an impact and it caused an urgency. In FT we don’t get that at all. Not sure what you’re saying here about fanservice…\n\nThat’s not true, Bleach had many people that did not come back, and even then when they did they had a reason for it, not just OH I magically survived no reason given.\n\nDude what the hell are you even talking about sleeves? I’ve read good stuff, I don’t have to be all knowing to know when something sucks, and I’m clearly not the only who who think’s this series is shit, it’s just low tier garbage. Take a writing class or read a how to guide, Mashima would fail a writing course.\n\nYeah but we didn’t know what would take place during those fights. We know what will happen when Natsu fights Zeref, and when Natsu fights Acnologia. He will be overwhelemed he will give a friendship speach get a random power boost that let’s him overwhelm his enemy then beat them in an anticlimatic fashion. As has happened in every arc of this manga. Naruto vs Sasuke was well done they were pulling movies and actually engaging in combat, not talking then one punch and a corny speach.\n\nWhat the hell is nekketsu, you mean Shonen? Lol dude I already know how all that’s going to end just like every other fight in the series, are you blind or are you just to dull to pick up how the fights work in this series.\n\nI believe you think you’re superior, I don’t think I’m superior, but I’ve taken University writing classes, studied literature and writing form, so yeah I have a little expertise. It doesn’t take a genius to realize how bad the pacing and tension is in this manga. Lol that’s all perspective doesn’t speak well of me? That’s your view, maybe I don’t give a shit what others think about me, becaues I don’t know any of these people they are random people on the internet, you have problems if you’re worried what that IP address from anywhere in the world thinks of you. Lol how old do you think I am? I pay for my own stuff dude, I go to school full time and have a job. Know you’re the one acting superior thinking he knows everything.\n\nLol that’s such a weak argument by that logic no one should ever criticize a tv show, a book, because it’s fictious and it’s not suited to them. That’s a bunch of BS, there are standards and rules, and things that teach one how to do things properly something Mashima hasn’t followed at all. \n\nToo bad it’s falling out of popularity it’s taken a nosedive from the top 5 to the top 15 in just a few years still a good placing but people are getting sick of it, they can’t even keep the anime on the air, and they’ve got two movies after 505 chapters, lol OP had like 7 and DB had even more. FT is a disaster companies don’t want to take a risk on it to even make games. Dude lol you know how many manga series get their own museums I can’t count them all, it’s just a thing for the milestone a publicity stunt. Plenty of series have it, don’t see it having it’s own theme parks and stuff at the Japanese Universal studios, like Dragon Ball and One Piece. Nor is it going to be at the olympics like Goku, Luffy, Naruto, Sailor Moon, and the Yokai Watch thing. Hell even Shin Chan beat out Fairy Tail.\n\nDude sales don’t mean squat, there could be people buying to give reviews or people like me who loved it in the beginning and want to complete our collection. It can’t even stay on the air got canceled twice.\n\nIt is not insane, it’s from a story standpoint, having a war where nobody dies is insanem having fake deaths and then magicially popping up for no good reason is insane.\n\nGoodbye and Hail Satan

    • darewin

      It’s not really the lack of deaths people are complaining about. it’s the fake deaths like that of Juvia.

  • Gryin

    Tbh Gray vs Natsu go Naruto-Sasuke probably a best things must happen to FT manga.\nNaruto-Sasuke rivalry is not bad actually, Kishi just executed their rivalry overdramatic. On Gray vs Natsu yeah overdramatic is trigger lever.\nFT has suffered from lighthearted nakama asinines so why not turn them into Naruto-Sasuke emoedgerivalry

    He’s definitely dead. I mean, he was getting too old and when a character gets too old they usually die. Unless, you’re Zeref of course.

      • Porthya

        As you said, he was healthy, till Zeref killed him. We didn’t get to learn if Grimoire Law had been used previously to the Tenroujima arc or if it consumes the user’s lifespan, but we did get to see the already old Makarov using Fairy Law during Phantom Lord, so it’s easy to guess there had already been enough time deducted from his remaining lifetime and energy to prompt health deterioration. And who knows, maybe all those size changes applied to himself through his own magic, Titan, could’ve affected the function of his main organs.

        • Kyo Shiro

          Grimore Law didn’t use at Tenroujima arc n his magic Titan doesn’t effect his body. His healthy problems becoz he is heavy drinker, just that.

          • Porthya

            1. You have no way of knowing if Titan doesn’t affect his health, constant alteration of size of one’s body and inner organs could, logically speaking. We have no canon statement that his health couldn’t be weakened by such magic type. Warrod eventually even turned into a humanoid tree(though he looks more like a brocolli), so it could be that Titan has a thing to do with Makarov’s health deterioration throughout time, paired with alcoholism and usage of other powerful forms of magic. There are other heavy drinkers in the story and they don’t go around having heart-attacks, though they are plenty younger.\n2. I was considering the possibility of his magic affecting his health as one of the many factors to do him in, not the only one. Especially since we were discussing other “geezers” as well, who seemed in better condition, while at relatively a close age to Makarov.\n3. Who’s Walken?

          • Kyo Shiro

            Walken Walrod, he become a tree bcoz all higher wizard will be like that when they become one with their magic. Makarov still far from that n his known as heavy drinker among his old friend even polusyca warning him about that becoz it give his heart become worse. His healthy worsen since his son make many bad thing until his disband from fairy tail by his father (Makarov) it get more worse when Rob not back from his mission until one day Erza come to fairy tail n tell Makarov that rob already died protect her.

          • Porthya

            Don’t you mean Warrod Sequen?! That’s his name

          • Kyo Shiro

            Oh yeah, I forgot his name ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • LoveAnimation

      I really like it when old characters in these mangas, animes and other stuff sacrifice themselves to help the new generation.

      • The Real Tobi (Cana)

        Yup just another list of long things Mashima can’t be original about

        • Aoiinazuma

          Have you ever written a goddamn story in your life? Nothing is original anymore. You will never create something that isn’t built off the foundation of another work.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Welp, ya know sometimes you can be a little bit original with designs but when Kagura looks like Ikaruga from Senren Kagura, GIldarts looks like Shanks,etc,etc, you can be original with designs, plots not so much and techniques a little bit, but come one there are so many things that are so damn similar I mean Flare is just a copy paste of Kaorinite from Sailor Moon. Yes some things can’t be original but at least change the color of Flares clothes or her hair or something to make it not look so damn similiar

    • Rene

      Natsu is still alive

      • Kyohei Kinoshita

        That’s because he doesn’t see Natsu as an enemy and he doesn’t know who END is

    • TheExorcist95

      Oh yes, he is sooooo dead. Just like every character that died in this arc so far -.-

    • Guy St-Amant

      Well, Makarov has/had quite the collection of Death Flags.

    • Tenebrea

      This is Fairy Tail. He won’t die, until the author says he’s dead 100%, otherwise he will come back to life even if a blessed worm crawls over him.

      • Brieanna The Artist

        Naw he’s dead. His death seems like the only one that’d make sense for Hiro Mashima to have. And if not now, then later on. I mean, he isn’t immortal so he was going to die soon anyways. I was expecting this death and I’m also expecting a few others as well (1 or 2 from the Fairy Tail side and some from the opposing side.) \n\nHe used 1 of the 3 great fairy magics and so I believe he will stay dead, kind of like how they had that big price to pay of 7 years while on Tenroujima Island (by using fairy sphere) to protect themselves from Acnologia.\n\nAnyways hi! Haven’t seen you on Masterani in a while.

        • Konci Park

          “I’m also expecting a few others as well (1 or 2 from the Fairy Tail side and some from the opposing side.)”\n\nNatsu? because technically he’s already dead… \naww.. I hope it’s not what I think will happen.. Natsu taking Zeref with him and Natsu leaving a heroic legacy. Because wherever I look at it, even if there’s a possibility that they can turn him into human again then he will be dead. Isn’t that demonic power the only thing that’s making him alive?

          • Kyo Shiro

            Natsu is new entire being that zeref created to revive his dead brother. Zeref ask help from Igneel n Anna to send Natsu to the future so he can grow up without problem. So, technically natsu is alive, it’s just someone from another past or future can’t live in different dimension as long the door that bring natsu n the others not being destroy. N that door lies in Layla mansion.

        • Kyo Shiro

          They stuck 7 years in Tenroujima bcoz Mavis in her astral body, so she limit to do everything. Makarov cannot b dead bcoz fairy tail is imperfect without him.

      • Simon Belmont

        If you look at his eyes you can clearly see there’s no pupil left, he’s DEFINITELY dead.

      • Kyo Shiro

        Yeah man, I agree with u hahaha ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • Fulbring

      You’re probably 99% right about that, but I won’t believe it until I see an actual memorial or funeral. \n\nIt’s kinda not fair for Hiro to throw this in like this after all the “deaths” thst have happened and it’s been the exact opposite.

    • Sogeking

      Saying someone is “Definitely dead” in Fairy Tail was your first mistake. He should have died back on Tenroujima. If he didn’t die there I see no reason why he would die here.

      • Porthya

        It’s not actually impossible for him to stay dead, he was already experiencing symptoms of another heart-attack, he was very old and age was already showing into his magic activity, plus (Fairy) Law consumes life-time, like many huge spells. In its incomplete form it stopped Mavis’ growth and earned her that special gift from Ankhseram. \nNow I doubt Mashima would go for a 3rd bearer of the same curse, who goes around clutching his chest and releasing “death waves”,unless he’s set on pulling an 180 on his readers and turn this comedy/drama/action/adventure story into a horror show(which sounds nothing like Mashima).

        • Kyo Shiro

          Yeah, what u said make sense but ankseram curse happen to mavis bcoz she’s not learn it properly. U need 10 years to complete it n zeref being curse bcoz he try to revive his dead brother. Hades (Purehito former 2nd fairy tail master) his age same with Makarov father n Walken but they (Walken n Hades) still alive bcoz they already become one with their magic n that’s what will happen to all wizard when they achieve higher level. Makarov heart symptom bcoz he is heavy drinker.

      • Kyo Shiro

        yeah, there is no reason y he should die bcoz he is one of main char. Fairy tail without him is imperfect.

    • David Urzendowski

      or Natsu. wait he was dead already.

    • Jasmine Ellish

      Yeah ultear did die after getting old

    • Kyo Shiro

      This is magic story, there is no logic in magic story bcoz possibility is endless. Hades (Purehito) Walken n Dreyar( Makarov father ) is same age but they still alive except Dreyar already died in the war long ago.

  • scaiajedah

    Not much of a hype chapter. Shows that other FT members as fodder. Never was a fan of Erza. Gildarts was good to see though and this death if it is one is a relief. An overdue.\n\nBut i liked the exchange between Mavis and Makarov on this one.

  • Larcade

    MAKAROV TOOK AN L. WELL DAMN!!! I HOPE NO BS HAPPENS AGAIN!!!

  • lolTengu

    FUCKING AWESOME

  • Manga Lover

    The chapter was too short

  • I bet Eileen and August aren’t dead yet =_= They both were shocked by the light of Fairy Law but . . . \nAnd Eileen.. she can enchant all of those soldiers… jeez.. if she’s that strong.. how strong is August? Damn.. and August hasn’t shown any of his true abilities yet. . . \nAnd another thing that I hope is that Fairy Law would drive the E.N.D. inside Natsu away x3

    • Alex Drake

      Like hell END would get driven out that easily. You have no sense of narrative if you believe that for even a moment

      • LoveAnimation

        I dont think the E.N.D stuff will be over already but i think its possible that Natsu will go back to normal for now and he will transform into E.N.D again at the end of the arc.\nSame with Gray and the way hes changing.

        • Alex Drake

          Except if that happens now Gray would kill him on the spot since he would be defenseless. This fight is not going to end so easily.

          • LoveAnimation

            Gray could also go back to normal for now.\nHes also being changed by dark magic that could temporarily go away because of Fairy Law.

          • Alex Drake

            Yeah that’s not happening. Fairy Law does not have PURIFYING qualities. It just targets things the user considers enemies. Natsu and Gray do not fit those parameters plus Gramps has no idea they’re fighting in the first place.

          • LoveAnimation

            I guess so.

  • Natsu Drangeel

    My guess is that Matser die but he will come back to life i am pretty sure natsu and he will come back to life what i mean by this is that natsu will kill zeref and die along with him but i think that natsu will fight with the god of life and death that curse zeref and the god of life and death will find him interesting ( we all know gods always find main character interesting) and give him his life back but its all a guess

    • Damn… how can u be so sure?

      • Natsu Drangeel

        I am just guessing there is nothing wrong with guessing

        • Robert Orwell

          And there isn’t, really. People are just nasty and stupid nowadays, don’t bother yourself with them. You are free to guess whatever you want to.

        • Right

    • Alex Drake

      Nice fanfiction. Not gonna happen

  • Manga Lover

    Broken bonds… I wonder what Hiro is intended to indicate

    • LoveAnimation

      Gray and Natsu probably.\nOr something else.

      • Manga Lover

        I don’t know why … But may be Erene and Erza ….I could be wrong

        • Alex Drake

          There’s no bond other than hatred between Eileen and Erza so no they are not eligible

  • HELLO IM 4CHAINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

  • LoveAnimation

    The only reason why i want Makarov to stay dead is because i know that there will be a huge amount of hate and complaining if he comes back.\nHiro Mashima said that somebody would die in this arc so i guess this is most likely what he meant.\nI love Makarov so if he is really dead and gone i feel really sad right now.\nBy the way the cover page for this chapter is one of the big reasons why i love Fairy Tail so much and why i love and enjoy this series more than most of the other shounens.

    • BlackRegio

      Makarov its no death… Laxus was not there to say goodbye or enter in berseker like Ezra in the next chapter…. Makarov its gonna comeback in the end of the arc

  • Nakki

    Makarov. Rip provided trollshima isn’t at work

  • Naza Lover

    I knew Eileen could or was going to pull something like that (to enchants the Alvarez soldiers) but I though the Trump card was referring to Larcade or maybe Gray using one to try and defeat Natsu.\nNot that Master Makarov would use Fairy Law and sacrifice his life in the process, guess that Fairy Law is not only deadly to the enemies, but to the caster as well.\n\nThe question that I had now is will he be back or will Makarov stay death?\n\nLooking forward to the full reaction of toward his death in the next chapter.\nI did liked the interaction between him and Mavis, is the first time he talked rude to her like that.\n\nEileen was surprised but August was calm.\n\nIt appear that for a brief moment with Fairy Law casting both Natsu and Gray have partialy returned to normal atleast for now.\n

    • Alex Drake

      What? No they didn’t. They were looking right at each other just as fiercely as last chapter. They didn’t even look at the flash. Fairy Law had no effect on them

      • illidan

        You have to calm down a bit, you know… accepting someone’s else opinion isn’t always bad. Neglecting it completely without proof, which I see you do everywhere, is what’s wrong.

    • illidan

      It looks like it, but when I take another look, it looks as if they’re keep fighting. Can’t tell from that point of view if they stopped due to the light or they are completely insensitive to their surroundings :/

      • Naza Lover

        Well for me, they looked a little more normal, even Natsu face wasn’t dark anymore it eyes and around can be see again..\n\nI think they feel the familiar magic from the Master and maybe reacted to it, while still looking at each other.\nThey looked a little surprised.\nBut I agree with you, in their current state can’t be sure if they are aware of the surroundings or as you mentioned are insensitive to everything besides each other.

        • illidan

          I think that shadow over his eyes was to create an intense moment, like it always happens with anime and Fairy Tail specializes in that. But I agree that Natsu doesn’t look so evil anymore.

          • Naza Lover

            It make sense, I though it was to represent his partial END awakening, yeah he look normal at the moment and his hands don’t look like 3 claws, but that maybe was the flames.\n\nYou know now with the side-effects of Fairy Law revealed, one character could have die early in the series or at least become very old.

          • illidan

            …\nI wonder if Hades would have died, using Grimoire Law. We’ll never know now 😛

          • Naza Lover

            Maybe not since he could have liked it to the Devil Hearts to avoid the side-effects. But you are correct we will never know.\n\nIf Laxus did managed succefully use Fairy Law when he casted it, since Magnolia and decent sized town along with all the people in it, he would be a old man by now, right?

          • illidan

            If he felt like everyone in Magnolia is his enemy, he would probably be dead.\nLooks like both us and everyone (except the Masters who are most likely been told of the nature of Fairy Law) were ignorant of that magic…

          • Naza Lover

            Yeah, he would be death by now since Magnolia had so many people living in it.\n\nMaybe for Mavis that wasn’t a problem since she inmortal, but for others can be lethal.\nI think that August wasn’t surprised by Fairy Law since Zeref probably teach it to him as well.

  • Kyra Taylor

    Nooo we will miss you

  • Gabriel Felicio

    Obrigado pelo cap

  • Otaku_leaf_

    This is gonna be one heck of an anime scene

  • captain Lassiter

    Makarov going out like a boss

  • Cathy Taylor

    Lets Hope Makarov Stays dead, even though, he went out like a boss…

  • venky

    i don’t think he is resurrecting anymore.. i mean he’s already fuming out.\ni would’ve preferred if it was against Zeref or Acnologia…. Not a bad way to go Makarov.

  • captain Lassiter

    At first I was “no!! Makarov can’t die!”… Then he told the queen of anime lolis to shut the hell up and I was like “kill that old bastard!!!”

    • Alex Drake

      Mavis has been trash in this arc. Telling her to shut the hell up is justified

      • Jayzii

        She is so useless, to be honest…

  • Mystogan

    Makarov went out like a BOSS

  • Travis letchford

    What is it will old and powerful masters dying to save the next generation

  • Tshering Sherpa

    I think Natsu is back to normal, look at his eyes after makrov used the fairy law.

    • Jayzii

      What do you mean with “back to normal”? he always have been normal…He just wanted to avenge Lucy.

  • Gabriel Garcia Ruiz

    I liked the episode but feel happened quite fast.\n\nThe Fairy Law was great and active and showed us their limits and a fairly logical reason why not used all the time.\n\nIrene is quite powerful enough to increase the soldiers of such a level that even Erza could cope on their own.\n\nI liked the act of Makarov and this live or not, it was clear that is the Master of Fairy Tail.\n\nI imagine that next week will see you again Natsu vs. Gray Front\n\nI guess like any Spriggan know if it was affected by the Fairy Law.

  • illidan

    There are those tears again… heartbreaking.

  • Emperor Spriggan

    Makarov on some of that Whitebeard badassery… damn, this was a mighty fine chapter

    • illidan

      That was an epic exit for Makarov… I just hope it’s not Mavis’ illusion, because this all happened very suddenly and Makarov even yelled at Mavis…\nEspecially that “to you they might be mere soldiers” is really intense.

      • Alex Drake

        An Illusion would not be able to cast Fairy Law >.>

        • illidan

          The illusion might have been Fairy Law destroying the soldiers.

          • Alex Drake

            That would make no sense whatsoever

          • illidan

            It’s just a guess. No need to take it seriously 😉

      • Emperor Spriggan

        IKR!!!!\nThat was a really well done scene, plus he died standing :O

        • illidan

          Dying standing is the most epic death. But it still can’t reach Whitebeard. Damn, old men are probably the most epic characters in anime history.

    • Vic Romero

      aye fam i feel you on that, makarov be on that whitebeard shit haha, and I agree with you even though it was centered around other characters it was still pretty damn decent.

    • TheExorcist95

      but this is not even close to the level of badassery of Shirohige

  • Ruum90

    I won’t believe this death until the series ends, Hiro loves to troll but if he’s truly dead about time!!!! Be should have died back at tenroujima and more lately by Zeref.

  • Darth Vader

    Finally, one death!

    • illidan

      Hey, watch out. Simon might hear you…

      • Manga Lover

        Lol

      • Robert Orwell

        Also, Ikagura, Azuma, Lahal, Org, Belno, Ur, Hades, Silver, Igneel, Ezel, Jackal, Keith, Trafzer, Tempesta, Kyoka, Mard Geer, Jiemma, God Serena, Wahl Nicht, Bradman and the mages from Sabertooth whom he killed, Beth Vanderwood (unconfirmed), the entire nation of Bosco. Interesting how they never manage to kill all their enemies altogether, though (some of the demons from Tartaros, such as Franmalth, are still alive somewhere).

        • MetalHead

          He meant the 1 death from the good side. All those names you mention are mostly villains and characters we barely know.

          • Robert Orwell

            Don’t you think Silver can be considered a good person?

  • Erza_cake

    WHYYY!

  • ๖̶̶̶̶̶̶̶ۣۣۜۜMєllѳ•٠·

    thank you for the chapter yonkou 😀

  • fish8100

    Makarov looked like he turned to stone there. Where is Laxus? I can’t remember but I dunno, I thought there would’ve been a part of the page looking at him or something. Not sure I wanna read other forums given all the people who will be saying about death in FT again lol. Dammit, I need the next chapter! Thanks for posting!

  • CastleBuzz

    ERZA RAGE MODE IS COMING BITCHES!!! \nI cant wait for Eileen vs Erza!! XD\nTime for Erza powerupppp 😛

    • The Fabulous Wombat

      Please, for the low of god, no! If Eileen goes down, it needs to be well earned and make sense. Erza is not doing shit by herself, i don’t give a fuck how pissed off she is. Eileen is someone who made Acnologia sweat for a bit…That is leaps and bounds beyond Erza’s league.

      • Robin Purnama

        There are no woman in FT Guild who could defeat Eileen then (stood a chance).

        • Robert Orwell

          I was betting my bottom dollar on Gildarts, once he had faced Acnologia and survived to tell the tale, but seeing him all bruised from battling mere soldiers, even if they were in a overwhelming number, made me reconsider. Now, aside from Natsu/E.N.D, I cannot imagine who will be able to take down Eilleen, August or Larcade. But I still think Erza will come up with some new stuff due to her rage and we may see a titanic battle between those two. Mayhaps…

          • Robin Purnama

            I think Gildarts will fight August. I don’t think that he will fight/attack women because he is such a pervert.

          • Robert Orwell

            Hahahahahaha, you might be right. If I were him, I don’t think I’d be able to attack August, he has earned my respect due to his kind nature despite his outrageously huge power. Eilleen, on the other hand, is nasty, sadic and reckless, even though she’s also powerful. I mean, she made Acnologia sweat a little bit. I would go face Larcade, he is also strong and frightening, but I guess I would have more chances of victory against him.

          • Robin Purnama

            I think Larcade will fight Natsu/E.N.D. It’s like holy vs dark, Angel vs Demon. Haha i thought that Eileen would used some attack spell, but Acnologia was suprised for a bit at that moment.

          • fade27713

            Gajeel or mirajane maybe ?

          • Robert Orwell

            Mirajane is having a hard time with Jacob, a not-so-strong Spriggan – they are twelve, so I put him in #6 – and Gajeel almost lost his life defeating a demon – ok, a Spriggan 12, but still… I don’t see any of them being able to defeat neither August nor Eilleen, but who knows, right? Trollshima has always been pulling a rabbit out of his hat.

          • fade27713

            Mirajane can’t use take-over magic because she used it all up. She also has sayla’s curse magic with forces people to do what she says. Jacob’s a top tier sprigging btw. Hismover 100 assinations aren’t for show. keep in mind FT guild wouldn’t be around right now if it weren’t for….. I only said gajeel because of jet black dragon mode and us not seeing much of it. He was also on par with nastu (b4 he went e.n.d)

          • Robert Orwell

            Regardless, the way she is now, all bruised and beaten, she can’t raise a finger against Eilleen. Gajeel is very strong, I just don’t think he can match August’s skills – just not yet. Aside from E.N.D., I really can’t imagine someone strong enough to have a chance to take August or Eilleen down – I think Mashima is planning a titanic confrontation between Eilleen and Erza, though.

      • CastleBuzz

        I dont think Erza is gonna win againts Eileen, I think maybe Eileen wont go all out like Silver vs Gray or maybe Erzae will get help from Jellal, but i really want them to meet already!! Im dying to know about their connection and Eileen’s past XD

    • ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ

      Even though I for one would want them to finally fucking meet, Master Makarov’s sacrifice is making me want to wait for a bit. But it would probably cost me my life if the two will fight, just holy shit.

  • Smokid

    Maybe this is the last Fairytail arc i suppose?

    • Robert Orwell

      Very likely.

      • Smokid

        Yep im right .

  • Dreaded Smile

    The oldman made the entire world shudder with that attack and went out on his own terms. The alvarez troop losses are beyond counting yes they will probably survive, but that Bitch Irene just ruined their lives and family’s lives forever. Tis the price of any true war don’t you think?

  • Ken Chu

    RIP Makarov ?

  • LoveMeSomePhilly

    Sooooo he’s actually dead this time right?

  • Wizard

    I love how Makarov say shut up to Mavis 😀

  • Holy Ray

    Look at the August and Eileen when Makarov use FL.This shows level difference

    • Robert Orwell

      Agreed. For even the Magic King and the Scarlet Despair to be bewildered by that Fairy Law, it was really a very strong spell. It was able to wipe out the entirety of the one-million-soldiers Alvarez Empire army.

      • Kemor

        Natsu took out 1,000 soldiers with one of his strongest attacks, and here we have Makarov take out 995.000+ soldiers with Fairy Law. Says how much of a nuke this spell is. I’ll believe he’s permamently dead when his body get blown away with the wind, like Vegeta’s body in Buu Saga.

        • fade27713

          I know vegeta cause I see him in super isn’t dead, but why a DBZ reference ? FUCK YOU !

          • Kemor

            Calm down cunt.

        • Robert Orwell

          Yes, I recalled Vegeta when he sacrificed himself in order to kill Majin Boo – which didn’t happen, because Majin Boo just rebuild his gelly body. He (Vegeta) has become a statue of dust or salt, I don’t remember, but, anyway, his petrified body has blown away with the wind, the same might happen with Makarov’s likely corpse the next chapter. Also, Natsu had knocked out the soldiers; Makarov has killed all of the soldiers.

  • TheExorcist95

    Oh no, the most useless and unimportant member of Fairy tail (apart of Lissiana) just die, this is so sad because we will never see him again… yep… he WILL NEVER COME BACK!\nYes… because he is dead…really… aja…\n\nPretty boring chapter, we just have random fairy tail members fighting with random soldiers with no name. \nHow many chapters you think that Makarov will stay dead?, I think that he will stay this way just 2 or 3 chapters

    • Manga Lover

      It was an impressive chapter

      • TheExorcist95

        yes for how lame this chapter was

        • Manga Lover

          It wasn’t lame

  • ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ

    Old man.. I expect you to be on the guild, sitting on the bar with a mug of booze in hand okay? You’ll always be in our hearts, Master.\n\n/This is getting really interesting, now that we’ve got a chapter with mostly Irene in it, and we’ve got a spotlight for Erza in the last few scenes, meaning there’s something huge that’s gonna occur that involves our Titania, and possibly with Irene. And hey, did anybody noticed Natsu’s eyes reverted back to normal when they saw the Fairy Law? Aw fuck, I’m gonna miss Gramps.

  • BlackRegio

    But the death of WHitebeard was EPIC, this was… meh. Makarov its gonna comeback in the end of the arc

  • BlackRegio

    The death of Makarov (if he really die) was weak…

    • Manga Lover

      Nope

      • Little Miss Truthful

        Yes it was, he didn’t even take out one of the Spriggan with him… he died alongside fodder…

  • Natsu freakin’ Dragneel

    I think nobody thought this will be the “Trump card”…

      Yeah ikr

    for reals ? Makarov died while Natsu and Gray(the guilds aces) are having a nonsense fight there. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3deb09565db6bc19598bf60bda727a052649ad41915dab1b7c99668135a113da.png

      In gray’s case you know Natsu have really nothing to do in Gray’s misfortunes in life. Natsu is the leader of tartaros but he didnt lead them it was Mard Geer who lead tartaros for so long until tartaros wreak the town where Gray’s family live and his parents died there. Gray’s resolve to kill Natsu leaving other guild mates that having trouble is very foolish.

      • fade27713

        Grey’s misfortune comes from zeref. He hates zeref and all his creations. Natsu is one of zeref’s creations. Simple as that.

        • Little Miss Truthful

          Which makes their whole fight incredibly dumb. Natsu helped Gray kill off Deliora, he helped his guild fight countless of enemies who were acting in the name of Zeref, he even beat up some demons and Mard Geer as well. But Gray seems to think “muh daddy said so” and is now laying the blame of all his sorrows on Natsu, even though Natsu is the least person/demon to blame…

          • fade27713

            He probably thinks that natsu knew he was E.N.D all along, but didn’t tell anyone because he was a spy and trying to gain their trust or something.

  • Hella

    It must’ve felt strange for Mavis considering she was there at the time of his birth and now at the time of his death.

    • Kazui (Secret Senju)

      Holy sh!t I didn’t realize that.

  • Godson704

    Hes dead but then mashima finds a retarted way to bring him again just like the rest

  • Dragon

    Sooooo dope i love how hiro handled this i had a feeling gramps was gonna die, makorov hasn’t done a damn thing since his fight with josie i’m glad he got some valuable screen time

  • Robert Orwell

    His last Fairy Law has amazed even August and Eilleen – if not hurt them as well, once they are enemies. What a great way to depart. Ô Makarov, if you are really dead, know that you have passed away like a hero and we, FT fans, will always remember your sacrifice. A pity Laxus hasn’t had the chance to bid farewell to you.

  • Manga Lover

    Alvarez has just made their demise. The death of Makarov will have a tremendous effect on the FT members especially on Laxus and Natsu who is grieving over the death of Lucy. I hope the ridiculous fight between Gray and Natsu should stop now and they focus their rage on Alvarez empire.

    • Robert Orwell

      Natsu, as he is now, and Gray, as he is now, need to stop fighting and concentrate their forces against what remains from Alvarez Empire forces. The one-million army is now dead, killed by Makarov’s sacrifice. Neinhart, Dimaria and Invel are off-side; Brandish has changed sides; with Neinhart’s defeat, God Serena, Bradman and Wahl Nicht have vanished from the living word once and for all. Then, now Fairy Tail has the duty to take down Ajeel and Jacob (very easy, they have been defeated once, they can be beaten again), and, the real uphill task, to knock out Larcade, August, Eilleen and get rid off Acnologia and Zeref. If they keep forwarding this senseless quarrel, they will exaust each other and their chances to win against Zeref will greatly diminish.

  • Celaena Sardothien

    Oh great. Now I’m sad

  • Symbol de Au

    This is pretty stupid though.(Unless I forgot something) I was wondering why Makarov didn’t jsut use Fairy Law from the start. I mean the reason he didn’t use it on Grimoire Heart was because Hades threatened to use Grimoire Law. I guess(unless I forgot it being mentioned before) Mashima remembered Fairy Law existed and decided to add “it shortens the users lifespan” as a new excuse for not using it. OK. So why didn’t Mavis just use it considering she’s immortal?

    • Little Miss Truthful

      Yeah, Gray picking a fight with Natsu is dumb. It’s all about “muh daddy” at this point, for Gray. Lame, if you ask me.

  • Edogawa Conan

    he did that just to show to the guild that he cares about them ? really ? -_- \nand guys, guess who’s coming back to life next chapter 😀

    • Manga Lover

      Who?

      • Symbol de Au

        Layla no doubt.

        • Manga Lover

          Huh… What?

  • Pol Val

    …. That was the cheapest death scene I’ve ever seen. I feel nothing about Makarov dying from this contrived consequence. I’m just tired… let this end. Let this shitty arc end.

  • Merciless Jean Percy

    Good riddance, it’s been a long time coming Makarov. \nPls stay dead

  • Elöf (•⊙ω⊙•)

    please die makarov. ı m sorry but please die. because all of guys are survived in this manga. SOMEBODY SHOULD DİE!

  • Claxxi

    Such a faggot,he die for nothing..

  • Twilight_Garden

    Honestly, if anyone was gonna die it was gonna be Makarov, and while I have my doubts due to the lack of any kind of reaction from Laxus this chapter, I can see him getting his own chapter and reaction later. I hope this death is one that sticks, but we all know Mashima and how he doesn’t like killing anyone off, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

  • Leopold Vermilion

    sorry Hiro, but fuck you I am not falling for your bullshit ever again

  • Tethys

    He died for nothing…

    • shodai kitetsu

      maybe he died for gray and natsu andthen for erza to berserk

  • The Real Tobi (Cana)

    Finally he’s been set up to diei what 50 times by now, and we have a good guy death confirmed in this war that makes 1\nWhat pisses me off though is he has time to draw fanservice but we don’t get a reaction of Cana?\n\nAlso what a Vegeta way to go out

  • Gate7

    Im afraid fairy law took out END (for now), and if this is true this chapter is super BS. Anyway you cant expect much from the writer, which will bring back Makarov somehow (maybe Mavis will sneeze on him and the saliva will give his life back).\n\nI start feeling that Naruto flashbacks are more interesting.\n\nThanks Yonkou for the chap, you are the champ.

  • DarkGyro

    So the old man finally died huh. Now people can shut up now that Markarov never dies(well time will tell anyway.

    • The Real Tobi (Cana)

      Lol the one magic will bring him back

      • DarkGyro

        Yeah I know. Nothing really surprises me in this series.\n\nHow have you been?

        • The Real Tobi (Cana)

          XD, me either but some people are still surprised by stuff\n\nPretty good how bout you?

          • DarkGyro

            Busy with shit in the real world; but I’m good.

          • The Real Tobi (Cana)

            Haha me too, it is a pain it has to be done

  • Kyra Taylor

    RIP gramps so sad #DicksoutforMasterMakarov

  • ZEPLER

    Something tells me he is dead, but something tells me he isn’t\nI don’t know or care.

  • Akuma

    O my GOD fuck hiro you became berserk to kill

  • SPOOKYHAIKYUU

    I Can Hear the Fairy tail sad music playing…

  • Elif

    I just wanna say : Why?

  • Kyra Taylor

    Hiro knows Makarov isn’t dead you little troll!

  • Symphonetic

    if there was a way to not let him die mavis wouldnt have freaked out like that

  • Psico Menace

    I’m really feeling this dead, anyway if this is just another feint by Mashima-sensei I will be really happy.

    • Dreaded Smile

      Neinheart just became very useful don’t you think?

  • Dylan Carters

    he’s the only one they can get away with killing off Makarov must be 80 by now

  • PappaSmurf

    Mavis: I have a plan!\n\nMak: Shut the fuck up bitch. No one gives a shit about your plan!\n\nKills himself with the rest of the sprig fodder.*\n\nLOL He basically died for no reason other than to give haste to whatever mavis was about to execute.

  • YuriFan

    Makarov was like “F*** this shit manga, i’m out of here”.

  • Aaron

    Natsu bout to oneshot everybody when he finds out Makarov is dead \n

  • Point_Blank

    Mavis touches him granting that way INFINITE Magic, therefore he doesn’t die… or “F*** It!!!” after all the supposedly dead people, I won’t be surprise if he died or not.

  • America Sanchez

    Is it sad that I hope he’s dead.\nHear me out, as much as it pains me to see him die, thik about all the character development for everyone in the guild once they find out Makarov has died?\nI mean, he probably is alive or will come back to life, but i really do wish he out of everyone for sure dies. I think itll make for great development.

  • Jake jr

    Rippperoni knowing fairy tail for all we know he could be reincarnated into pepperoni.

  • Millaray Gonzalez

    Has anyone realized how this will help the story?, even if he it isnt dead, the most afected as it seems, is erza, after all her background story and all that. Now she will be in a huuuge rage(bigger than gray’s, i must say). That will set us to the perfect scenario to the “eileen vs erza”

  • Millaray Gonzalez

    And how the hell cares about “if he dont die for real, its not emocional and credible”. Fairy tail is like that, and i dont care, each series has their good and bad points. And its no important to much if their are alive or not, is about the scene, and how you make the feels flow. C’mon, gajeel’s and juvia’s “death” where one of the saddest scenes ever. I still remeber gajeel’s words :’v. If you love the series, you have to accept it just like it is, and im pretty emotionaded about this arc, no one expects that natsu vs zeref will be just like at the begging of the battle, because, almost everyone think that , that will be the “final battle of all” but hiro makes that battle earlier, and makes to expect a 2nd natsu vs zeref. Also with the tumor, no one thinks that the tumor was relationated to END, after polyrusca says that was and “anti-ethernano tumor”. Or that acnologia will kill Serena.Or that brandish will become an ally after her first apperance. Or that diMaria would be the one that unleash END. Hiro has sorprise me a lot, so i conclued that this arc has been full of a lot of emotions of all kind, with or without “deaths” \n\n(sorry if there are gramatical and spelling problems)

    • Millaray Gonzalez

      Stop it with the thing of found each bad point of everything and start to see the good points, and you will see how amazing and good are the series, and not only for FT

  • zloan93

    wait so does this mean we get the seven deadly sins too?

  • Rosalino Felix

    I’m still waiting on Gildarts vs August and that fight is going to go hard

  • Hiyorie

    im sorry but i love just seeing erza cry; even tho it makes me cry

  • Simmila Simmer

    Makarov…..*sighs* I knew he was going to die in this battle but, it still hurts. It hurts so much. And the new chapter being called Broken Bonds? I can only imagine it being the continuation of Natsu vs Gray.

  • hari

    gray’s logic is far worse than sasuke’s logic. Gajeel deserves to be natsu’s rival. Gray sucks. i had high hopes for gildarts bt he let his master die by nt taking care of the soldiers. gildarts culd hav done somethin with his magic power rather than punchin them.

    • Porthya

      LIke AOE the battlefield and risk killing his allies as well?!Have you seen a realistic scuffle, I’m not gonna ask about a battle, where it gets so crazy and risky your own friends/allies can be thrown as projectiles at you and even if you take the enemies 1 by 1 with your weapon of choice(magic in this case), you still risk hitting one of you own?

    • Little Miss Truthful

      It’s been said Gildarts can’t really control his magic all the time (which is why the town adjusts for is arrival, Natsu gets made into chibi’s, and even Gildart’s said so himself once, can’t remember when exactly). If he goes all out around his friends, he’s bound to hurt some of them… he wouldn’t risk going full force unless it was just him and the enemy… alone.

  • I expected this to happen in some part of this arc…

  • Yuu_Demonzz

    I can’t believe this man

  • Puar Super

    Vegeta…

  • turtle3334

    I was wondering when he was going to die. He was getting old so he needed to go soon. Not trying to sound rude though. The question is. . . Who is going to be the next master?

  • XAnimeUzzieX

    if he’s actually dead, (this situation is so likely considering we haven’t really had the feels of someone dying yet if you don’t count Juvia, Gray, Gajeel, Mira, Brandish, Erza and Natsu’s “deaths” – Gosh really had a lot of near deaths haven’t we?) I think this would be a great advance in future plot considering there is no guild master which then makes way for Natsu to most likely be the future guild master and leaves a definite emotional loss for this war. All in all, I’d say Makarov’s finished, his plot armor has finally been chipped away at. As much as I loved his character and really didn’t want to see him die, I think… it’s time….

  • Lolita

    Oh geez I don’t even cry 🙁

  • Konci Park

    From this Fairy Law, I expect Natsu and Gray to go back on their senses.

  • Lord Rutsah

    He is dead because Mavis has been revived. There is no reason for him to stay alive as far as the plot is concerned.

  • Valsoray Gaming

    Is it mee or do I just want to see a huge Natsu Murder spree?

  • Devin Haskell

    HOLY SHITTTTT
