All Those Times When Jellal and Erza Saved Each Other

Jellal saved Erza on numerous occasions:

1. Back then, he saved her when they were enslaved, in Chapter 80:

2. In Chapter 331, Jellal saved Erza during the Grand Magic Games Arc:

He then helped her walk in Chapters 335 and 337:

3. In Chapter 474, he saved her from the two remaining Knights of the Neinhart Squad:

4. In Chapters 482-483, he saved her from Neinhart, due to whom Erza had sadly already been harmed. Because of this, Jellal got incredibly angry and defeated Neinhart right away only for Erza’s sake:


5.
In Chapter 509, Jellal told himself that he must get up in order to protect Erza: 

Then, in Chapter 528, Jellal saved her from Acnologia himself:

6. Jellal once again fought Acnologia himself in Chapters 534 and 535 in order to protect Erza:


Erza also saved Jellal many times. What is really beautiful is that, while Erza saved Jellal physically, too, she also saved him from an emotional point of view:

1. Physically, she saved him during the time when they had already started to fight for their freedom, in Chapters 81-82:  

2. Also physically, she saved him in Chapters 147-148, when she caught his hand and, this way, prevented him from falling:

3. Once again physically, in Chapter 536, if Ichiya and Anna hadn’t pushed Acnologia with the ship, fact which released Jellal from his hand, Erza herself would have taken Acnologia on to save Jellal:

Then, after Jellal had been freed from Acnologia’s hand, he fell into the water while Erza was rapidly swimming towards him. Right after that, she immediately helped him:

4. And, as I’ve previously mentioned, what is really important is that, besides physically, Erza saved Jellal emotionally, too.

These are Jellal’s words from Chapter 416: 

As it can be seen in Chapter 509, also from Jellal’s words, his and Erza’s paths did finally cross completely and he sees Erza as his light, the light in his heart which illuminates his darkness, fact that is a reference to his previous words from Chapter 416:

Therefore, while both of them saved each other a lot of times physically, Erza also saved Jellal emotionally and this is really beautiful. ^-^

Jellal’s words from before:

Jellal’s words in the present:

Therefore, their paths have finally crossed thoroughly and they will definitely remain like this from now on. :)
