Fairy Tail 301 opens up some fantastic information to us. We learn that the dragon Acnologia was once a human being who bathed himself in dragon blood who became a dragon after some time. We also learn that some of the Dragon’s aren’t as bad we think, this dragon also explains that Dragon’s used to own everything around 400 years ago.
Fairy Tail 301 starts out Wendy starts to make a magic circle around her where she can use her Milky Way spell to call upon a dragon. Once done, she tells everyone to stand back. She chants her words which will call the wandering souls of dragons. She enables the spell and calls outs Milky Way.
She goes around looking for the soul, the bones start to crumble, she says that she’s searching for the souls of the dragons which are lingering around this place, it’s very old and small. She finds it quickly enables it. Wendy goes into a concentrating mode where she can keep the dragon there.
At this point, a dragon appears from no where. Everyone standing there is shocked at this revelation. The dragon makes a large roar where it can scare the hell out of Natsu and the others. After the scare, it unexpectedly starts to laugh. It tells them that he loves seeing the faces of human chickening out.
He introduces himself as Zealconis or the Emerald Dragon. He notices that there needs to be a Sky Dragon somewhere to be able to awaken him there. He notices that Wendy is sitting down concentrating. He calls her a lil’ cutie dragon slayer. Natsu tells him to quickly get away from her.
Zealconis threatens to goggle her up right there. He then tells Natsu that he’s kidding, he reveals that he cannot do anything to a physical body while he’s a spirit. Carla, Happy and Lily asks them what had happened to them as well as their past there.
Zealconis explains that around 400 years, the Dragons were the king of the world. Freely soaring through the skies, dominating the lands, crossing the seas. They had led quite the prosperous lives. Everything in the world belonged to the dragons.
He explains that a fool of a dragon appeared and protested against their rules. He spouted nonsensical things like creating a world where dragons live in harmony with humans. At this point a civil war broke out between those that supported and those that opposed him. The battles between the dragons had already scarred and ripped apart several lands.
This was when the Pro-Human side put their foolish plan into action, they gave the humans magic to slay dragons as well as enter the war. It made significant change. The victory of the Pro-Human side would have been inevitable if it wasn’t for one small miscalculation.
They had notices that they had given the Dragon Slayers too much power and those who wished for peace with human were also slain by their hands. Among them was a man who bathed in the blood of dragons. The man slayed many dragons and continues to bathe in their blood.
This was until the mans skin itself became scales, his teeth into fangs and his form itself became that of a dragon. Zealconis goes on to explain that the dragon’s in the cave were all slayed by that one man. He was both Human and Dragon. It was the war that gave birth to the king of dragons, and the Dragon Festivals.
The King’s name was Acnologia! They are all shocked at this fact, they can’t believe it. Most of the dragons there were killed by Acnologia, and this was over 400 Years ago. At this point, Zealconis disappears while Natsu wants to keep on asking more questions. Wendy can no longer connect to a dragon.
At this point Arcadios shows up, he tells them that it’s impossible for them to become dragons. Natsu and the others notice that they don’t know this person. He tells them that he heard their conversation, he asks if they’ve hear about Zeref’s book of Dark Magic. He tells them that Zeref could have made that Dragon Slayer into Acnologia.
He then tells them that getting rid of Zeref, the root of all this is the first step to defeating Acnologia. At this point, Yukino Aguria stands by his side, everyone notices this, Carla quickly notices that the white knight she saw from her premonitions has come in front of her. Fairy Tail 301 ends here.
We now know a little more about the past of the dragons and we can all try and link a few things together Can’t wait for next week’s Fairy Tail 302, titled “The Eclipse Plan”. It’s possible that it’s going to be good, can’t wait for it!
