Fairy Tail 156 continues with the Arc as the Fairy Tail team go on a head with the Sky Labyrinth, unfortunately Wendy is nowhere to be found, so Elfman takes her place in the competition, they turn out to be the last team to approach the Goal, even if they’ve gone through, they came last. Wendy is found unconscious near the King’s palace.
Fairy Tail 156 starts as the Sky Labyrinth opens for business, Erza stops them to tell them that Wendy is not there, Elfman steps in and tells them that he’ll be the change in which they need, he carries all of them towards the Sky Labyrinth. They keep on going when Erza tells Lisanna and Happy to go and look for Wendy and Carla.
Every other guild also run towards the entrance of the Sky Labyrinth. Once they reach inside, they notice that everyone is in a maze fashion, there are parts which twist in such ways making it hard to understand where they need to go at times. Erza proposes that they should head East, Lucy brings out her Celestial Spirit, but Erza dismisses it by just mentioning that she’s got a compass.
They head east, at each point they face problems, the Pumpkin explains why Natsu is not getting motion sickness, he explains that the Sky Labyrinth has been coated in a specific magic allowing all players who are afraid of height or get motion sickness to not be affected.
They find themselves in a room which spirals to the end, they are afraid of it but just keep going through it. At the end of the door, Natsu nearly falls off. Erza proposes that it would be useful for them to take notes so they don’t get lost, this allows them to map the place properly.
Lisanna and Happy relay the message about Wendy to Romeo and Nab. Erza and Natsu hear voice from another members of another Guild, they reveal themselves as the members of Twilight Ogre, they remember that they were the members who were bullying Fairy Tail before Natsu and the others showed up. They get ready to fight, so does Fairy Tail.
Fairy Tail, including Natsu, Gray and Elfman kick their ass, they all fall towards the ground. The Sky Labyrinth starts to move around, the pieces and such start to move in different locations, a lot of people start to fall off, Natsu and Lucy also fall off, when Elfman saves them. Gray and Erza are okay hanging onto the objects around them. The Sky Labyrinth stops moving, lots of people fall down.
Erza finds notes of where the goal might be at. They will use this to help them to go to the right places instead of wasting time in going the wrong way. Members of Fairy Tail start to kick more ass, they also start to collect more notes from which it helps them to piece together what they’ve got. The Sky Labyrinth starts to move again, this time it doesn’t do much damage.
Fairy Tail are still looking for Wendy and Carla, Happy and Lisanna go toward the castle in which they think she might be there. Lucy spreads out the notes they collected but it seems that they’re going to take their time in accomplishing and finding the Goal, the compass doesn’t work, Lucy takes out her Celestial Spirit, Pyxis to get help with finding where East is, Lucy asks for its help.
They start going towards the place, they are nearly there. The Labyrinth changes again and they all fall down towards the stream of water, they run towards getting to the rock bridge, everything in that place is fake, they keep on going.
Lisanna and Happy reach the castle, they explain their situation to the guards asking to go in, they are let in, they go towards the court-yard, Happy and Lisanna split up, they must keep on talking to Warren to get their message across.
Fairy Tail reach the Goal for the elimination stage, they are all proud of themselves for reaching it, they find out they shouldn’t be laughing because they’re in eight place. The Pumpkin reveals that it’s finished, and the Guilds will be told at the opening ceremony.
Happy find Wendy’s bag in the courtyard. The creature which could have attacked Wendy looks towards Lisanna and Happy, after some moment, they’re found, seems as though both Wendy and Carla are out of any energy. They don’t know what had happened to them either. Fairy Tail 156 ends here.
A cool challenge for Natsu and the others, it’s was tough for them, plus since they reached 8th place, they are in last, place, it would be awesome to know who the other 7 teams are, although it seems clear that Blue Pegasus and Lamia Scales are there, as well as Sabertooth. Can’t wait for next week’s Fairy Tail 157, titled “New Guild!”, when the opening ceremony starts and we find out who the others are.
