Oh boy… This was quite the episode! An epic battle between Natsu and Jellal. Natsu going all dragon after Absorbing Etherion was cool, although its probably more of a one time thing. It does show how much stronger Natsu can get though, since he only absorbed a small piece of Ether ion and was already a hell of a lot stronger than a Council Mage.
Erza’s decision to save everyone a the expense of her life was a nice one, and the flash back of her getting her eye healed was touching. The younger Erza was definitely a nice, sweet but unfortunate young girl. Of course, we all know that Erza is far from dead, and that she’ll be very much alive before the next arc starts (thanks to a rather spoiler centric OP theme that was shown quite a few episodes early… )
Simon dying was kinda sad, but at the same time, I didn’t feel too much for him. Its because he’s only been with us for a few episodes, and I really didn’t get too attached to him. He was the most noble and well designed characters out of all the others though, and saving the woman he loved before he died was a pretty nice way to go.
Natsu and gang head back home, to a newly rebuilt Fairy Tail!
