Fairy Tail 296 brings an end to the fantastic battle between Fairy Tail vs Sabertooth. We finally find out that the match winner is definitely Natsu and Fairy Tail. Even while Natsu isn’t in his Dragon Force he’s able to beat a Third Generation Dragon Slayer just in his Normal form! He really does force them down with his secret technique.
The match continues as someone from far away gazes upon Natsu, they are overflowing with tears as they look from far away. Jellal who’s in Mystogan’s costume finds out that the person we just saw is definitely Zeref. Ultear says that it feels like Zeref but somehow it’s different. She tells Jellal not to let him get away from his sight, at this point he’s running towards the feeling of Zeref.
The match continues when Sting is mocked when Natsu said that he’ll be able to defeat him all by himself. He asks if he’s just messing with him. Rogue tells Natsu that he only has business with Gajeel because his battle is with Gajeel. Natsu responds that he’ll have to go through him first to get to Gajeel.
Sting powers up and tells Natsu that the Dragon Force is that of a Real Dragon’s. There is nothing more powerful in this world! Sting goes for an attack when Natsu asks him if that wasn’t his full power. At the same time, Natsu blocks Stings attack using his own hands.
Sting proves his worthiness by stating that he was killed by Vicelogia with his Dragon Force. Natsu responds that he will use his own power to fight for the friends that he laughed at. Then Natsu smacks Sting in the face with such a powerful force!
Everyone watches as Natsu counterattacks both of them. Natsu notices that Rogue also activates his Shadow Dragon’s Roar! At the same time he also activates his Fire Dragon’s Roar, which obliterates Rogue’s puny attack!
Sting tells Natsu that it’s far from over. Natsu tells him to bring it. Everyone watches as Natsu brings the Fairy Tail name back to the top and prove that they are the most powerful guild in Fiore. Each attack Rogue and Sting bring forth, Natsu counter attacks and beat Rogue and Sting back down!
The Sabertooth team watch from far as their dream team is being shattered by just one man! Lector also starts to cry and remembers the old moments when he asks Sting to be his student because he wants to become strong.
Sting and Rogue try to double attack using the Unison Raid, they both use it and call it the Holy Shadow Dragon’s Flash Fang! at the same time Natsu enables a Dragon Slayer Secret Technique called Exploding Crimson Flame Blade which brings destruction as both techniques clash!
Everyone watch and watch till the smoke clears to see who the real winner is. The rocks crumble, both Sting and Rogue fall down. Sting calls Natsu’s power “unfathomable”. Sting slowly tells himself that he has failed his mission to Lector as Natsu is just too strong. Everyone from Fairy Tail, even Marvis smile and cheer as Natsu wins! Fairy Tail have also taken the top spot! Fairy Tail 296 ends here!
What a totally amazing chapter, Natsu has finally shown that Fairy Tail are truly the better champions and that they should not be messed with! Seeing both Rogue and Sting lose to only one man, Natsu, tells me that Natsu has really gotten unbelievably powerful! Can’t wait for next week’s Fairy Tail 299, titled “The Face of the Girl I Saw”.
