Alas! This is the first chapter of the last set of two-part chapter releases for Fairy Tail. But who knows? We might get other future two-part chapter releases!
Anyway, it is all positive and all smiles in this chapter! Natsu Dragneel has defeated one of the Yakuma 18 War Gods: Ikusatsunagi. It was a majestic feat, something akin to Erza defeating 100 A-, B-, and C-class monsters, and an S-class monster during the Grand Magic Games—probably even more! Considering that Ikusatsunagi was gigantic and as a size comparison, Natsu looked like a fly on Ikusatsunagi’s sword! I guess this arc was made to showcase Natsu’s ability and how much he has gotten stronger in one year. Also, it showcases the other Fairy Tail members’ magical and combat growth.
As I was expecting, Gajeel Redfox, Pantherlily, and Levi McGarden would show up together with the soldiers of the Magic Council after Avatar was defeated. Typical. Nevertheless, it was great that they got to be reunited! And with Gajeel and Natsu seeing each other after a year, hilarity ensues! I just could not believe that Natsu still underestimates Gajeel! And Erza Scarlet, too! They both thought Gajeel did not have it in him to be an officer of the Magic Council! Ha! Ha!

Finally! This is one of those chapters where we say, “Now, we’re on to something!” When Natsu Dragneel visits the Sabretooth guild and goes looking for Rogue Cheney and says that he must not trust Gray Fullbuster at this time, I was brought back to the Dragon King Festival / Future Rogue arc.
Just to refresh your memory, when Natsu beat the Future Rogue in chapters 336 to 337, Future Rogue forewarns Natsu to tell him in one year’s time to protect Frosch. Back then, I kept wondering how Frosch will die / died.
Now, one year after Fairy Tail’s disbandment, Natsu’s eagerness to meet Rogue and his resolve to bring back Gray says it all: Frosch will/might get killed by Gray. Definitely, “We’re on to something!” Things are really getting exciting with a tinge of foreboding. I do hope Rogue does not do anything stupid and follow Natsu to where the Avatar guild is. Then again, can destiny be changed? I think Natsu, Happy, and Lucy are not enough to bring down the Avatar guild. With that, I believe they will encounter other Fairy Tail members before facing off with Avatar. Also, is it possible that Gray knows about E.N.D.? Is E.N.D. really connected to Natsu?
