Fairy Tail 349 shows some love to Fairy Tail as their members begin to fight back. Erza, Natsu and Gray all become their normal size, from this point on, they begin their winning battle. However for Gray, he has to battle the beast which seems to have gained power from the book of Zeref, Doriarte fights Gray as he begins to transforms into his real form allowing him to change into a large beast.
Fairy Tail 349 begins as Doriarte asks Gray if he’s serious, by just looking around him, he’s in real trouble. He explains his magic, retrogression magic isn’t something that grants young, strength, speed, endurance, magic powers. It simple reduces all of these, bringing Gray into a rabbit state in which he’s going to get hunt down.
He hears a click and looks down to find that the ice beneath him is breaking, from this he falls down, which was Gray’s plan all along. Gray mentions that not all of his abilities are reduced as his bran and creativity is still up to scratch. He explains that molding magic was made to utilize their imagination and creativity to create weapons. Doriarte begins his climb back up to notice that Gray has vanished.
Gray puts him into another trap in which he created an artificial floor. He disables it and the first thing Doriarte falls in is a tree containing spikes. Gray molds some magic to create a tiny hammer. He mentions that it’s okay for now since he’ll just change that to something else, it’ll be shaved ice. Gray mentions that he clearly isn’t an Ice mage, and there he could have not done such a thing.
Doriarte begins to change, Gray mentions that you can’t find the boss until the minions have been taken down, referring to Doriarte as a small fry. Minerva has a sword pointed at Erza, she mentions that if she was to beg right now, she could even change her mind on killing her. Erza responds by saying that she has lost all pride, she can still go back.
Minerva looks at Erza in anger and chants a word, she goes to strike Erza however she quickly gets back to her original form, she moves away from there and strikes Minerva below the chin, then goes for a roundhouse kick pushing back Minerva. Minerva realises that Doriarte has been beaten. She mentions that it doesn’t change much, Erza dieing in her young form would have left a bad taste in her mouth.
Minerva thinks that she’s got a way to counter her Nakagami Armor, then tells Erza that she needs a better wardrobe stylist. Erza says the same when Erza quickly took Minerva’s skirt leaving nothing but her underwear. Natsu returns to normal. Gray also returns to normal while Doriarte begins to change. He jumps for an attack and hits Gray, he gets bigger and bigger.
Gray notices that it looks like Mirajane’s Satan Soul, but then realises that it’s not, it feels like something out of madness. Doriarte changes himself completely, with huge arms and massive teeth. Gray quickly begins to notice that it looks like something from the magic book of Zeref. Which seems impossible, how will Gray fight like this. Fairy Tail 349 ends here.
We are very close to 350 chapter for Fairy Tail. And every single chapter seems to be building another great story, especially since we’re entering more into what and how Zeref works. The fight between Gray and Doriarte will certainly be something to enjoy as it’s likely to be one great one, can’t wait for next week’s Fairy Tail 350, titled “Gray vs. Doriarte”.
