Yes, I deliberately decided to not make December 2016 Fairy Tail manga spoilers guide, not only due to Saezuru and Yuri on Ice happening o.o, but also due to lack of news.
So I’ll begin this new format with a brief synopsis of the December chapters.
Fairy Tail manga synopsis December 2016
Fairy Tail synopsis chapter 513 – titled Flower Circle
I’m a bit shocked that Rakheid was beaten almost too easily, being technically Natsu’s ‘nephew’, to be frank.
Kagura tells Minerva that she holds no grudges or resentments anymore.
Natsu and Sting can’t even move.
Then this is the infamous Erza/Eileen fight
Erza holds her own against Eileen.
Eileen has the superior advantage in her magic, despite Erza using Heaven’s Wheel.
But Eileen drops the bomb spoilers that we’ve waited for all 2016:
Erza doesn’t give a shit, since her family is the people who have been with her all her life.
Eileen wants to tell her more about the circumstances of her birth before killing her, but Erza just attacks ahead.
Fairy Tail synopsis chapter 514 – titled The Dragon Seed
It takes us back to Dragnov, Ishgar, 400 years ago, an era where dragons and people coexisted in peace. King Dragon Belserion was their ruler.
We see a young Eileen Belserion, Queen of the Dragons.
They were against the ideology of dragons eating humans. While Dragons helped human civilization to advance, some Dragons of the West felt entitled to eat humans due to their superiority.
King Dragon Belserion didn’t allow that to happen and that begun the infamous Dragon King Festival war.
Erza is hooked, anyway, 400 hundred years ago o.o Her mom obviously pulled a Tsunade, and apparently she has that ability too.
The chapter delves more on Eileen’s ability to grant any object an attribute that makes it stronger, such as giving a wooden stick the properties of an iron sword that can cut over another sword easily.
Despite this, Ishgar was annihilated because some local dragons betrayed King Belserion.
On the verge of losing the castle, Eileen asks Belserion to grant her with the power of a Dragon Slayer.
A human against a Dragon, that was a novelty back then.
So she’s kinda like the Six Paths Sage of Fairy Tail, by technically having invented Dragon Slayer Magic o.o
By the way, there’s a full Nalu scene with Lucy naked lying next to Natsu to warm up his body. Happy is also there.
In Wendy’s consciousness, she tells everyone what they need to know, though.
Anyway, Eileen tells Erza that despite turning the war in their favor, not everyone could withstand such power, thus the Dragon Seed was born on those that could adapt.
Eileen eventually couldn’t handle the power either, but scales coming out her face, and by then she was pregnant with Erza.
Fairy Tail synopsis chapter 515 – titled ‘I am you, you are me’
This implies that somehow Eileen’s circumstances were special in regards to her pregnancy.
Mashima kept us hitting in the head with the truth.
But to avoid bestiality / dragon tail sex implications, which would even be too much for this manga, Erza’s father is not King Dragon Belserion, but some emo-looking dude-general that Eileen was obligated to marry to solve a territorial dispute.
This is where Acnologia appeared, he was the one that won the war, killing everyone in sight.
The emo-looking general dude freaked out as how Eileen kept developing dragon scales on her face. The people thought she was going to turn into another Acnologia.
That’s how Erza’s father refused to recognize his unborn child.
Eileen got incarcerated.
She was tortured, beaten and humilliated for three years. What a parallel.
She kept developing dragon scales all over her body. She took all the beatings so she could protect her child.
The emo-looking dude general is an abusive son of a bitch who one day went to her cell and beat her up, and tried to cut open her belly.
But fed up enough, she developed fully into a dragon in her ire, but with wings very similar to what Erza has in her armor.
Going full berserk, she squashed the son of a bitch Erza’s biological father like a bug.
She ran away to the mountains, with Erza still in her belly for hundreds of years.
Untill she met Zeref, who finally helped her get human body again.
Still pregnant with Erza, she still had symptoms of not being able to taste food, couldn’t sleep, and had allergic itches and colds all over her body.
With her body so damaged, she basically wanted to pull an Orochimaru on her unborn child. o.o
“I’m you and you are me, my child”
At this point everyone is freaking the fuck out with her story.
But Eileen finishes her story by telling that she eventually delivered Erza naturally and threw her in the garbage, until they found her and that’s how Erza ended in an orphanage.
Is there’s ever a Ishgar Social Services office, what a field day they’d had o.o
But Erza is unfaced.
Erza: “I’m glad that you threw me away in the garbage, because that’s how I was able to meet my true family”
Fairy Tail synopsis chapter 516 – titled ‘The truth about enchantment’
Erza accepts the truth about herself. She probably always felt that she was simply an unwanted child, anyway.
Wendy and Erza attack her with all they have and Wendy manages to hurt her.
The reason she can do so is because she has the Dragon Seed, just that it’s suppresed to she wouldn’t have to face dragonification.
Natsu sees Igneel again in his subconcious.
Igneel explains that aside the Dragon Seed, he has too the Demon Seed, thus he is E.N.D
There you have it folks, from the Dragon’s mouth itself. o.o
But he drops another bomb:
Back to Eileen, she somehow regrets that ultimately there was a way to seal dragonification.
So she has a yandere explosion o.o
She swears to avenge Belserion at all costs, that’s her ultimate motif.
And she still wants Erza’s body, so he uses her enchantment to entangle her.
This is a freaking Law and Order case by now o.o
Wendy uses Deus Zero to counter her magic and Erza manages to land an attack.
Eileen is bleeding, but she managed to transfer into Wendy and possess her body, since she was not compatible with Erza precisely because they’re relatives!
Fairy Tail news 2017
We kickoff the year with THE excellent news that the movie Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry, a project stalled since 2015, will premiere on April.
There’s still more details to be sorted out, but it can be somehow an insight that the anime could return too on October.
Fairy Tail manga spoilers January 2017
Fairy Tail manga spoilers chapter 517 – out on January 16 – titled Wendy Belserion
Oh dear o.o
Supposedly Lucy will confess to Natsu
Eileen will use Wendy’s body against Erza, who will have no choice than to beat her.
Erza could gain a new form due to this.
While Natsu is unconscious, Igneel explains to him that the Dragon Seed and the Demon Seed are fusioning, and this process is inevitable.
Update January 14:
Finally more updated info on the first chapter of the year.
The cover has Wendy in full Eileen (Irene) regalia, an Orochimaru-style renaissance.
While Erza is shocked, Eileen evaluates Wendy’s body.
“A left thigh injury, some bruises here on the knees, but no problem, it will move”
She emits a blast that blows Erza away.
Eileen: “Not bad, she has more power than what I thought”
Erza is lying on the ground. “I can’t…believe this”
As Wendy Belserion walks towards her.
Eileen: “I bet you don’t have such a pretty child like this. Then all I have to do is erase your existence”
She attacks Erza again but she dodges it, and hesitates whether to hurt Wendy’s body.
Eileen attacks agains and slaps her.
Eileen: “you’re just too sweet, Erza”
Eileen keeps attacking like a mad bitch, but she is slowed down by Wendy, trying to take over from the subconscious
She manages to expell Eileen and returns to normal.
Wendy collapses on the ground.
Erza returns to her normal appearance while Eileen is injured.
Erza: “Let’s settle this now”
Eileen is in bad shape, bleeding all over.
Fairy Tail manga spoilers chapter 518 – titled ‘Extreme Addiction and Master Enchantment’ – out on January 23 – TBA
A scarlet bond of black hatred indeed.
Update January 22:
We have Happy on the cover, flowering the plants.
The battle continues.
Erza: “Wendy, I’ll end this here”
Eileen (Irene): “Finish me??? I can laugh for 400 years!”
Eileen throws blasts of power at Elsa but she dodges them easily.
Eileen: “I have kept you in my belly for 400 years! But your role is insignificant and so you shall remain!”
Erza: “I feel sorry for your misfortune, but I’m not going to lose!”
Eileen: “You can’t possibly know anything about my misfortunes”
Eileen manages to hit Erza, but she begins to regenerate her body.
Erza begins telling Eileen her story.
Erza: “I became a slave of a cult group in the village you threw me in”
She’s about to slash Eileen with a sword.
Erza: “My misery might not be as great as yours, but even I learned to love under such circumstances”
But Eileen is unfazed, she stops Erza’s sword
Eileen: “While that’s beautiful, I hate all humans and I hate you even though I gave birth to you”
She nails start growing and slashed Erza in the right arm, she manages to escape cutting them with her sword.
But it regenerates anyway and Eileen starts fully dragonizing o.o
I bet Acnologia is interested now.
Fairy Tail manga spoilers chapter 519 – out on January 30 – Titled ‘Show me your smile’
The battle continues with a dragonified Eileen, as Erza puts all her strength on her right arm and managed to break down the meteorite.
Eileen (Irene) can’t believe it.
Eileen: Even if you cut down the meteorite, you can’t cut dragon scales!
Wendy, lying on the ground, manages to enchant Erza’s sword, thus it is reinforced.
Erza manages to cut dragonified Eileen through her torso.
Eileen is forced to return to human form.
Bur Erza is in such a bad shape that she falls to the ground, she loses the sword that is near Eileen, as she tries to approach it.
Eileen: this ends here, just give up.
But Erza smiles, and she can’t help but trigger a flashback on Eileen’s mind.
That of her newborn daughter smiling after 400 years of being in her belly.
Eileen: ‘Do not laugh at me!’
She goes deranged and stabs Erza on the left shoulder.
But Erza with all her strenght lifts her up and butts her head against her mother, knocking her out.
Eileen: Not yet…and this is over
Eileen pierces her own belly with the sword.
Looking to create a new enchantment with their blood?
Eileen: (in thoughts) I’m the strongest woman in Alvarez, and yet…I can’t kill my own daughter.
Erza is on the ground, grinning.
Eileen: Even I don’t know
She falls to the ground, having a remembrance of when she left the newborn baby on the village. She didn’t want to enchant her.
Eileen: I was wondering, and now I remembered clearly, have I ever loved you?
Fairy Tail manga spoilers chapter 520 – out on February 6 – titled ‘Spirit or Demon?’
Looks like this chapter retakes the Natsu END arc. And probably the Natsu / Lucy moments go here. Also the Igneel scene.
Update February 6:
We have Natsu and Lucy on the cover, going on an excursion of sorts with Happy.
Back to Eileen and Erza, indeed the former committed suicide out of confusion and despair for her own motherly feelings.
Erza: “Goodbye, Mother”, as she lies on the ground.
Wendy: “Are you allright?”
Erza: “I’m fine”
Wendy: “I’m asking not only about your body…”
Erza has a fallen eyelid, swelling as hell.
Erza: “Thank you for bothering to ask”
“Still, Master was my only parent”
Wendy says that the smell of Master has not waned yet, but not sure it’s due to being mixed with other people’s smells.
Erza hugs down Wendy, they’re lying on the floor.
We finally get back to Natsu
Natsu is taling with Igneel on a volcanic area.
Natsu: Will I die?
Igneel: That’s right
“As the Dragon Seed and the Demon Seed mixes, you won’t be able to live as a normal person anymore”
So he means not a literal death, but a full transformation, similar to what Eileen has gone through.
Natsu: “There’s thing I still need to do, such as defeating Zeref and Acnologia”
Igneel begins to fade
Natsu: “Hey! You can’t just leave when a person is depressed!
Igneel laughs. “Well, let’s talk till the end, then”
Ignel: “One way out of this would be that you choose one of the seeds and eliminate the other”
Natsu: How do I choose?
Igneel: For this you need to have a strong will and someone by your side who is either a dragon or a demon.
Natsu thinks of Zeref and his phrase, “the strongest devil ever created, END”
Igneel: It’s ultimately upon yourself whether you live or die.
Natsu: Am I a dragon or devil?
Igneel: There’s really no answer, Natsu.
Natsu: Even so, I have always been a human being, Natsu Dragneel.
Igneel is touched.
Igneel: I hope you have it right.
Igneel: Revived with the power of a devil, raised by a dragon, but you are ultimately a human being.
Igneel: It’s now time for you to advance with your own feet.
Thus Natsu wakes from the lucid dream, with naked Lucy by his side.
He’s more oblivious than Goku and Naruto at this point.
Happy and Lucy hugs Natsu.
Lucy covered herself in Natsu’s sheet.
They are suddenly enveloped in a huge light.
It’s Mavis talking to everyone.
Mavis: “Please take everyone’s hands”
As Eileen died, her enchantment is dissolving.
August realized that Eileen is dead.
Zeref: “The effect of Universe One disappears and everything is the way it should be”
Fairy Tail manga spoilers chapter 521 – titled ‘The Strongest Mage’ -out on February 13
With Eileen’s enchantment gone, Magnolia returns to its original state.
Mavis is also back,
Mavis: ‘let’s use topography to make the fight easier’
Laxus hold Makarov in his arms
Laxus: “just hang on a bit more, we’ll take you to the guild”.
We get back to the fight between Jacob and Mirajane, hilariously enough he got beaten because the didn’t want to see Mira’s left tit hanging out like Janet Jackson at that infamous awards show.
Wow, so much for the Sprigans, no wonder Japanese fans are so pissed.
Elfman and Lisanna are reunited
But finally we get back to Natsu and Lucy’s side
They’re in Magnolia, and Brandish reappears
They’re still in shock of their surroundings
Dimaria is beaten and shrunk by Brandish
Natsu squeezes her in his hand.
Bur Brandy takes her and they start walking away.
Lucy: where are you going?
Brandish: “I’m relieved I’m not your enemy now, but well… we will disappear”
Lucy: “I hope to see you again”
But Brandish keeps walking with her back on them.
I guess she’s dissapointed as pretty much everyone with the outcome of all this buildup for nothing? o.o
