And so, we all go back to where everything started. This actually feels like the first chapter of Fairy Tail! Anyway, Lucy Heartfilia has written letters to everyone she could come in contact with saying to meet up in Magnolia so they could bring Fairy Tail back. She, Natsu Dragneel, Happy, Carla, and Wendy Marvell are thus back in Magnolia. It is but fitting that Lucy be the one to assemble everyone for since I started reading Fairy Tail, it felt like the original plan for this manga was to have her as the central character. But, it is much better that the focus was directed to a group and other individuals outside of it.
Getting back to the story, Lucy feels that after the uneventful disbanding one year ago, everyone must have gotten on and/or moved on with their lives. As such, she feels downtrodden. While feeling sad, Cana Alberona approaches her—as if we would not be able to recognize her just from her back! Hah! Anyway, she cheers up Lucy and says that the disbanding was a good break for everyone to learn new things outside of guild life and to grow. Although we did not see her reaction to the guild disbanding (along with Erza Scarlet, Gray Fullbuster, and Gajeel Redfox’s, which we would like to have seen) I am sure it was a shock to them.
