Fairy Tail 465 reveals to Natsu that he and Zeref are brothers, and that he is in fact from 400 years ago along with Wendy, Gajeel, Rogue and Sting. All while Natsu also learns that he is END and that by destroying Zeref, he shall also disappearing being one of his cursed books. This is the only chance Natsu has to kill Zeref, but Happy stops him.
Fairy Tail 465 begins as Natsu deals his blow against Zeref. Natsu collapses after using such a strong attack, however he still has one more attack in him left. All while we see Zeref largely unhurt but seems to have been bruised quite a bit. Natsu asks Igneel for one more attack, one final attack against him.
Zeref mentions that he seems to have marvelous strength, he recites what he had said a lot time ago about how he might just be able to stop him, he’s always had that belief. However, he seems to be a bit late, instead of destroying him, he’s destroyed the surrounding area.
That is until now, with his final attack, he can defeat him using his power. And that is why he must reveal something to Natsu which he will find important. He reveals his name to be Zeref Dragneel. He is his older brother! Natsu is shocked, Zeref continues that around 400 years ago their parents were killed by a dragon’s flame, his brother was also killed.
However, using his own research, he was able to restore his life by the use of Etherious magic he developed. This is what he is, he is Etherious Natsu Dragneel, END! Happy tells Natsu to not get caught up in the lies, while Natsu says that he won’t believe him no matter what, he’s there to do one thing and one thing only.
Natsu talks about Igneel and how he was unable to defeat END, that is because he loved END too much, he loved Natsu too much. They talk about Tartaros and how it created the guild, but Mard Geer was never supposed to come across it. END book is brought out when he throws it on the ground, Zeref shoots a hole in the book which affects Natsu proving that he is END.
He was never a good listener, he sought advice from Igneel, a close friend of his, in those days, Igneel was a rare breed who wanted to work with humans. Igneel offered to teach Dragon Slayer Magic, along with other dragons. They thought of a plan where they would get these kids, and put themselves in them and travel to the future.
All for the purpose of defeating Acnologia. The dragon’s power was gradually weakening, the issue lie in the fact that the Ethernano was not dense enough for them to recover, if they did not travel to an era with an abundance of Ethernano, the Dragon Soul Seal could not be undone.
There were five kids, Natsu, Gajeel, Wendy, Sting and Rogue. These kids were all orphans, except for Natsu, but Zeref allowed it. They had used the gate of Eclipse to leap forward in time, a Celestial Spirit known as Anna opened the door. They did not decide on when they’d arrive, but Anna’s clan, in accordance with the Dragons’ plan, selected an era in which Ethernano concentration was particularly high and opened an exit there.
This was done by Layla, Lucy’s mother, who opened the Eclipse Door, on July the 7th of the year x777. The day in which him and his dragon disappeared. They thought that they disappeared, but in reality, they were within them, in the future. Therefore, Natsu is a child who was born over 400 years ago, along with the others.
Zeref waited for a very long time, he witnessed many eras come and go. His empathy of the true weight of human life and death began to erode. He met Mavis and then were parted again. Natsu shuts him up telling him that he won’t believe him, he goes to punch him, when Zeref mentions that he is a demon of the book of Zeref, if Zeref dies, so does Natsu.
Out of nowhere, Happy arrives and stops Natsu from attacking by holding him back, even if Natsu wants to do this. Happy tells him that he won’t let him do this. Happy cry’s as he mentions that he doesn’t want to lose him, as Igneel’s power disappears, Happy mentions that he is his best friend, asking if he’s not the same to him.
Happy cry’s as he doesn’t want him to do anything more, he mentions that he will take him no matter what. Natsu somewhat agrees. All while Zeref mentions that he will no longer be able to stop him, he say’s he goodbyes to Natsu. Fairy Tail 465 ends here.
A very intense and amazing chapter, it seems that Natsu is shocked that he and Zeref are related but what will happen after he tells everyone else. Can’t wait for next week’s Fairy Tail 466, titled “Assassin” when we see what happens. Can’t wait to see what’ll Natsu will have to do in order to stop Zeref, he’ll have to go ham.
