Holy shit, awesome chapter!

Okay, now we definitely know that he is specifically after celestial mages and not Lucy alone.

Also, it said July 2nd and in five more days the day would come. Wasn't July 7th the day the dragons disappeared, will the dragon king feast finally take place? I can't wait!

Holy crap. I think all characters with the name 'Kagura' are strong as fuck. That was like, really quick! 8O

I'm cheering for Mermaid Heels~

But Kagura's so cruel... .___.

Ah, I didn't notice. So that's why they specifically showed the calendar.

Obvious foreshadowing is obvious. I can't wait to see Erza vs Kagura battle.

So one sided... but I still liked the chapter.

But I like that Kagura girl. She definitely reminds me of Ikaruga from Senran Kagura. ^^


Bad thing is that I can already see her fighting Erza.... and losing of course. :/

I don't get what's so surprising about another celestial spirit mage... =.=
I mean, shouldn't they actually be pretty common? it's basically magic you can buy, most stores sell keys. Granted, the 12 zodiac gates are rare, but the rest of them are all up for grabs... anyone could do it... But Lucy already has over half of the zodiac gates, right? That's like, a big deal! I mean, having only 12 in the world to begin with, those are some damn rare Pokemon, why didn't they make a bigger deal of her getting so many already... That's always bugged me...


ahh... but I guess it was a good chapter. I like this no-frills Kagura chick. We need more badass women in shounen, who aren't just there for fanservice (but that's impossible to ask from Fairy Tail)

So, the plot thickens, I hope we do get to see more dragons in 5 days.

^Wow....that's almost *exactly* alike. Talk about lack of creativity there, Mashima.

Anyway, 13rd!? 13RD!? I appreciate the group's effort in translating, cleaning and what not but c'mon...at least get some decent quality checkers for your translations.

So did Kagura pull out the sword? And why did Erza know anything about it?

The 13th Spirit is also terribly underwhelming too. So much for being a 'hidden' spirit lol.

I think Kagura might save the life of the Sabertooth girl in the future. Since her life belongs to Kagura now, I think Kagura will actively try to stop anyone (like that evil royal guard person) from kidnapping her.

I really would have want to see more about Pisces and Ophiuchus, they appeared too briefly.

Libra is now figured out, another gravity magic user.

CRAP CRAP CRAP! Yessss!! All of the 13th Gates of the Zodiac are revealed! but why are Syukino’s 3 spirits much more cooler than Lucy’s 10 spirits?

Pisces, Libra and Ophiuchus are much more cooler than Cancer, Sagittarius, Aries, Gemini, Aquarius, Taurus and even Capricorn. Leo is really is the coolest followed by Virgo.

WAIT WAIT WAIT. With the current flow of the storyline of FT…a celestial mage will be sacrifice and it’s Syukina. Therefore… Pieces, Libra and Ophiuchus will be in Lucy’s hand!

also when they where annihilated by the black dragon in the tenrou island it was also the 7th year after X777 the x777 when all the dragons disappear..

That Kagura is so strong. I had a hunch she would win... and yes she did!
Somehow, I thought Yukino from the start is a celestial mage since she has a similar fashion style to Angel of Oracion Seis. And I was right.

I was expecting Ophiucus to appear... Pisces and Libra were cool as well.
Though, the mean-looking Ophiucus sunk down in the sink by Kagura's sword.
She is cool as heck.

Cannot wait for more. I see some foreshadowing in a stage where Erza and Kagura fight it out... and the date might be related to the dragons...

And now we know they are not interested in Lucy, but celestial mages in general.

Yeah, anyone can, but you saw the keys Lucy has from shops. They're practically useless. The only fighting celestial mages we've seen ALL had at least one (commonly more) zodiac/golden key. Which means that zodiac keys are a must have for a fighting celestial mage. That's why everyone was surprised. She could have pretty much shown all of her keys, that would be the same. You could say that fighting celestial mages are rarer than dragon slayers. And since she was with one of the strongest guilds, she must be incredibly strong even for a celestial mage. And THAT is something.

Aside from that, very nice fight. I, for one, don't think that the celestial mage was weak, she was just greatly un-experienced. It was her first big battle and all. She is clearly strong (summoning 2 celestial spirits without trouble) and creative (using abilities of Libra that way) BUT it was obvious that she didn't expect her oponent to know gravity magic. She wasn't prepared for it. That's just lack of experience. Then, she used her strongest spirit, even though she didn't think how to use it (it was simply thoughtless last resort move, she didn't know how to react). Kagura, on the other hand, has a lot of experience, that's why she knew she had to act fast and use her incertainty to her advantage. That's why she could defeat that thing so easily, she acted fast with full power while her oponent was just thinking of a strategy.

Sting-"sama" was shaking in his arrogant boots. Its starting to look like Sabertooth isn't all that powerful when compared to other big shots from various guilds. (Laxus, Jura, Erza, Kagura etc)

Lucy is even stronger than Yukino (disregarding the fact she was technically labeled a rookie, she still made it into Sabertooth)

Those three new spirits look special/awesome, but that's only because they are new. Leo, Capricorn, Aquarius are definitely stronger than those three.

.....Kagura....You're so badass. Let's have babehz.

Wonder what she's going to have Yukino do. Doubt she'll kill her.

Again with the 7s. All the emphasis on 7 is getting tiring ._.

:O that was quick! I had expected more of the fight. And Kagura just cut through Ophiuchus as if it were nothing!

Looks like Yukina will be target #2 after Lucy, if Kagura or her Sabertooth team members don't kill her, that is...

I can guarantee that there is a key to calling forth the spirit king. It would probably take ALOT to get that key I would presume.

Didn't really like this chapter tbh. Mainly because of that slave thing, I mean who accepts that so easily, I mean she lost but still. Well whatever.
I'm guessing that gate that they wanted to open is a door to the celestial world or something like that.

What is this "Slave" thing you guys are talking about?

You mean Yukino's life belonging to Kagura now?

Oh and for what you said about "who accepts that so easily?" It was her idea to do a wager. And she chose the wager. Has to own up to it.

You can't say that. At all. Unless they actually fight.

Until then...I have Kagura's babies.

Everyone is talking ohh shit Kagura is awesome, but now the whole fucking story plot is almost foreseen now. Sabertooth and Fairy Tale are going to fight then become allies, since the evil bad guys are going to take both of there celestial spirit mages.

Exactly what I was thinking. But there's also that vision that Charle had that specifically had Lucy in it so I'm not so sure...

The way these types of things normally work out I am just going to assume that there is another level of keys that we haven't heard about yet. If Lucy gets her hands on these last 3 and there isn't another level then she essentially is the strongest celestial mage on the planet.

I am looking forward to seeing how this arc will play out!

She pretty much already is. Remember she can sustain multiple spirits at the same time PLUS she is the only stellar mage so far with a direct attack spell aka Urano Meteoria.

All gold spirits until now were humanoid. Pisces and Ophiucius being animals is pretty strange. I hope Mashima pulls a Virgo to give them human-like appearances. Nice to finally see them though.

Kagura won't kill Yukino. And I don't think Yukino will take Lucy's place and die so that Lucy can get her keys. Mashima won't start killing people now, especially a brand new bishoujo. I wonder how the keys will end up in Lucy's hand, if they do.

Kagura is super cool. I wonder if she has something to do with Ikaruga.

This chapter was really awesome.

1. Picis and Libra. the two zodiac keys that Lucy not have. And a third?? I want to know more about this key.
2. So, another spiritual mage? Interesting.
3. The battle was really awesome, too much action and surprises

How? All of Yukino's spirits seem much more offensive-based than Lucy's, the only real exception is Leo. Yukino is definitely on Natsu-Gray-Lucy level and unlike them, despite being roughly the same age (based on looks), she hasn't even unlocked her second magic container.

Capricorn, Scorpio, and Aquarius are all battle based too.

Ever since they discovered the 13th zodiac sign last year I had a feeling it would appear in FT like this.

That was a great key, awesome!

So does this mean with the arrival of another celestial magic user that Lucy is once more utterly useless? Makes sense...
