I never like it when the internet figures out the secret beforehand, because it gives them a right to brag and act like they're superior to the series. I only like it when I make a prediction beforehand, and I was starting to notice it myself this week as well, so I suppose the main thing I want to say here is... I was right and that's all that matters.
|Cana has a point, and the fandom hates him for this.|
|Another panel from Fairy Tail that highlights Cana's ass-ets.|
However, it's time to go back to Larcade and... oh poor bastard. Larcade isn't his son, but in fact a creation from the Book of Zeref that he made to try to give Natsu a body. Larcade is essentially, the beta version of Natsu. The prototype. Zeref is angry, and only falling apart even more as he kicks his "kid" and goes back to his brother.
|Sorry Zeref. Frieza and Doflamingo's rage moments far exceed yours.|
In the present, Gildarts has finally figured out the truth behind August's power. He can copy and nullify magic, but he was dodging Cana's cards this whole time. It turns out that he cannot copy "Holder Magic" and can only copy "Caster Magic". Essentially, if a magic has a vessel like a card or key, August can't copy it. And unfortunately for him, that includes Gildarts' robot arm that he got after fighting Acnologia so many years ago.
As August takes a very painful direct hit from Cana and Gildarts, we finish the flashback by seeing Zeref discover the child and name him August...
Opinion: So it technically wasn't nakama power!
Yes, for all the complaints and moans about "nakama power" defeating August, this one was more about actually figuring out an enemy's weakness and striking at the most critical point. I even looked back at previous chapters, and yes he did only dodge the cards from Cana. By the way, is Gildarts' robot arm a reference to Berserk? I want it to be.
So Mavis was pregnant... Okay. Ignoring the dozen of biology questions rising from this, such as "Was it good?", when did Zeref and Mavis have time to do this? It obviously wasn't when they first met because Mavis isn't that easy, but Mavis mostly-died right away from one kiss when they met after the death of Yuriy's wife. So around the death of Yuriy's wife/Makarov's mother, Mavis must have had sex with Zeref? She died in the year X697, Makarov was born in the year X696 and I doubt she did what Irene did and was pregnant for years upon years with the power of magic... So in conclusion, Mavis must have had sex with Zeref almost immediately after she killed Yuriy's son, then he left and she went into that starved state we saw. Then Zeref appeared and kissed her. Then Precht.
|Holy shit, Precht is a major asshole! The child of one of his best friends and he's like "Pfft. Fuck it, bye!"|
Larcade smells like Natsu because he was meant to be Natsu's vessel. Yes, even I started to feel bad for him this time as Zeref lost his temper. Admittedly, it was a slight disappointment to see Zeref's temper right now, as I do love when a villain truly feels rage for the first time, but we have Acnologia for that. Let's hope his rage causes the planet to explode in five minutes...
Manga Rating: 4/5

|I thought we agreed never to talk about this ugliness!|
