So we’ve had quite an angsty chapter and the war’s first real victim among Fairy Tail and its allies: Chelia’s powers. 

But among it all, I find what she said here extremely relevant:

1. Chelia makes a distinction between “good” Gods and “bad” Gods.
Until now all the Gods that have been speculated of and/or introduced to us have been done so in negative light. Ankhserum cursed Zeref which lead to a whooole ton of other stuff, including Tartaros, END, the relaunch of the R-system, baddie-Jellal to name a few. The war God Ikusa-tsunagi was also someone Natsu had to defeat, having been summoned by the bad guys during Avatar and finally Chronos - who may or may not be the same as Dimaria - clearly also on the antagonists’ side of the story. 

Chelia, however hints at the existence of possible good Gods too. Which is significant, should the story eventually lead to a human vs God showdown (which it seems like more and more with every chapter). I doubt God Slayers themselves will be that crucial in that climactic scenario (simply because none of our mains are god slayers or have the capability yet). In such a situation, having at least one God on your side who actually has some clue of the rules and stuff governing this shibang is not just a very very good thing, but a required one too.

2. Dimaria’s reaction to Chelia’s powers.
Whether this was also Chronos’ opinion (if they are indeed two different beings) isn’t very clear, but the fact that the possessor of a God’s Soul wasn’t aware of the existence of God Slaying magic is significant. 

Both the God slayers we know of - Chelia and Zancrow - had learnt the same when being taught Lost/Ancient Magic (in Chelia’s case formally, and Zancrow from Hades). It seems weird to me that a God, or someone who embodies the soul of one would be unaware of information as crucial as this. 

So how did the technique find itself in the repositories of Lost Magic? Possibly one of those handy good Gods we haven’t met yet?

Shibori Kimono.  Early Showa period (1927-1940), Japan.  The Kimono Gallery.  A rinzu silk kimono featuring ‘chayatsuji’ (water garden scenery) with 'ume’(Japanese plum), 'kaede’ (maple leaf) and 'shippou-tsunagi’ (jointed four circles) patterns. Shibori is the main technique utilized, with the addition of yuzen-dyeing (painting) and plentiful foil highlighting. The soft, high-quality rinzu (damask) silk base is woven with motifs of wave, bird and flower circle patterns.

Fragment of robe (kosode). Japanese, Edo period, late 17th century.

Fragment of robe (kosode) with design of avi leaves in dark blue with white spots and green stencil resist-dye and flowers and leaves in green, pink and light brown silk embroidery and gold-wrapped thread couching on a cream silk damask ground with woven design of floral motifs and interlocking swastika pattern (manji tsunagi).

More spoiler images + Haise's Underwear

Mucchan really looks like a girl in that picture. And that surgical scar, it’s probably from the surgery to become Quinx. It’s the perfect target for Torso. I wonder if Sasaki knows Mutsuki being a girl, that’s why he slipped calling her Mucchan when he’s sleepy in Kokuria.

And the picture everyone is waiting for. XD It’s a matching underwear with his shirt LOL. The image is from here.

Probably the chapter cover. I’m guessing it’s Hinami because the side text says “Chasing for that smell…”.

LOL Sasaki is asking Mutsuki about laundry while thinking of his pants. He’s definitely looking for it. XD;;;

Plain type Tsunagi Quinque.

My memories have stopped
When I arrive there, I’m uncertain
That’s a sentimental SOS
Now, the answers stretch out up ahead

Your voice sounds out
When our voices both echo out, it’s so cruel
That’s a sentimental SOS
Now, the answers stretch out up ahead

It appears I’m blocked
Vague things, inferiorities, sentimental things, they all continue on
Buffering agents are often tied together, a delusional internet

An imagined reality
