Fairy Tail Chapter 405 Review
Okay so this chapter is set 20 minutes before the countdown ended with Natsu and Igneel still battling their enemies. Can I just say the panels with Igneel and Natsu are awesome? Acnologia finally speaks because he’s facing a dragon. He didn’t speak before because he thought humans are nothing but bugs to him, so why bother wasting energy to talk to someone that’s beneath you? But uh oh, Acnologia is being serious. Watch out Igneel! Natsu is surprised when both Sting and Rogue appear to help fight Mard (what kind of name is that?), but wants to obey Igneel by battling him alone. To me seems like he just wants to impress his father. Sting and Rogue end up joining the battle anyway, and I must say Mashima did a really great job with the battling panels. 3 dragon slayers and two dragons fighting in the sky, that is pretty intense. Mard is wondering if there could be more, but more what? Dragons or dragon slayers or perhaps more of both? Finally, he gets kicked into the ground and comes back up angry for the first time in ages. Now it’s Mard’s turn to get serious while the others mainly gets excited over this.
And that’s the chapter. Is it me or are the chapters getting shorter and shoter? Usually 24-25, then went down to 22 then 20 now 19. Why? Also, we still have no idea where Gray went of to and Lucy didn’t appear in the chapter at all. Finally, let’s talk about the title for the next chapter, “The Girl in the Crystal.” I’ve seen folks wondering if it’s Gray’s mom, or Ur (which I highly doubt). It could be something related to Lumen Histoire. I ‘ve seen some say it could be Erza, Lucy or Wendy or anyone else from Fairy Tail, but I’m surprised no one has wondered if it could possibly be Lucy’s mother, Layla. Don’t forget she died or disappeared the same year the dragons did. If Gray’s dad, Natsu’s dad showed up probably Lucy’s mother is next.
