Fairy Tail 171 starts the one thing which should have not, Sabertooth provokes Fairy Tail leading to a near death from Lucy. The challenge starts out as it should, but this time Lucy and Minerva are left in the Naval Battle alone, Minerva goes to anger every from Fairy Tail telling them that what ever they do is useless, she uses her magic to nearly kill her!
Fairy Tail 171 begins as members of Fairy Tail party the end of the day, they mention their victory as well as their ties in regard to Wendy. Erza’s praised for her work, Elfman also notices that Evergreen is with him, Natsu goes on a barrel run, everyone else takes part, Gray, Erza and other members of Fairy Tail do it too.
Sting is seen talking to Lector about how he feels that he’s going to fight Natsu the next day. Rogue also suspects the same. That night, everyone seems to be have a lot of things in their mind, Kagura things about what happened, Millianna is also spaced out, asked from Risley whats going on, she says nothing and gives her a hug.
Jellal also remembers his moment with Doranbolt, Arcadios also notices that Yukino Aguria also joined his ranks. Someone mentions that there are only 4 days left. The next begins with everyone cheering. The next challenge challenge begins. All members will go into the large water into which they will fight to get each other out. The last two members will have 5 minutes to which they will use to powers to get their opponent out, within this 5 minutes, the person removed will be in last place getting no points. After that 5 minutes they will be able to get as much fighting as they want.
Juvia from Fairy Tail B, Chelia from Lamia Scale, Jenny from Blue Pegasus. From Mermaid Heel, it’s Risley, from Sabertooth it’s Minerva. From Fairy Tail A, it’s Lucy. And from Quatro Puppy it’s Rocker, the only man. They all enter and get ready to go all out!
The battle begins with Lucy calling out Aquarius, out of nowhere it gets to Juvia and she quickly uses her magic in order to counter attack Aquarius attack! It seems Fairy Tail are fighting within themselves. Aquarius and Juvia might be friends, but Juvia quickly got onto Aquarius level. It seems Juvia wants to impress Gray so she wants to go all out. Jenny gets Rocker out, Chelia attacks Risley but fails as she turns slim.
Aquarius disappears and it seems that Lucy’s in trouble, she gets Virgo and Aries out to help her which they do. Juvia keeps on attacking, Risley, Jenny and Chelia keep on attacking each other. Juvia’s time has come, she goes on to enable her Second Origin! She does so and calls on the power of love to Gray and pulls out everyone in the water out, except Minerva and Lucy.
She looks at Gray and sees that he’s shocked, she’s quickly removed by Minerva’s tactics and she also losses. It seems that only Lucy and Minerva are left, the 5 minute watch begins. At this point, anyone who goes out will be left in last place. Minerva uses her magic and out of nowhere, it attacks Lucy, it uses the water to attack as it heats it up and tries to burn her.
Lucy’s keys are taken, she’s nearly taken out of the water but she tries to come back, Minerva uses her magic to keep her in the Naval sphere. Lucy keeps on getting hit, one by one she keeps on being pushed down. Lucy begins with her speech mentions that if she loses, she won’t be able to face everyone, therefore she will not lose! Minerva somehow stops attacking after hearing this.
She lets the 5 minutes finish, but at this point, she begins to attack as quickly as possible, she does so after saying that there is no use because she’s so arrogant! Plus they’re Sabertooth and will never lose. She keeps on punching and kicking her, all over her body! Lucy keeps on getting beaten down! Natsu, Gray and Erza notice that Sting and the others are laughing at this.
Arcadios stops the match, the referee stops the match, Minerva holds Lucy outside water barrier, as though she will throw her off, Natsu and the others run as quickly as they can when Fairy Tail 171 ends here!
Can’t wait for next week’s fantastic chapter, this is getting better and better, the fights are getting more and more intense that a match from Natsu against any Fairy Tail character will be epic! Can’t wait for next week’s Fairy Tail 172, titled “The Perfume I Dedicate to You!”, when we see a brand new team from Fairy Tail, as A and B join up to make, Natsu, Gajeel, Gray, Laxus and Erza!
