Welcome to the Weekly Fairy Tail manga! Continuing off from last week, the recent chapter ends with a big cliffhanger, Gray Fullbuster's headshot scene. It leaves fans wondering if Hiro Mashima is going kill off a major character. This week's chapter is a bit strange. Let's go over the chapter.
Check out Katmic's blog on the same chapter.
Ultear recalls a magic spell called Last Ages and that it can revert back time at the cost of one's life. Back then, she wanted to use this spell to gain back her happiness but chose not to do it. She uses her spell and realizes it turns back time, one minute. At the same time, Gray and the others save each other lives after receiving a vision from their future.
While Gray wonders if someone out there gave them a message, Ultear's body lies lifeless on the ground.
- Meredy. I was wrong on that part. In this chapter, it goes unnoticed by Gray. It's a bit bittersweet since Ultear does not know that her life saved countless others, just one minute makes a difference. I wonder if Ultear is really dead or not. If she is confirmed dead, will Gray find out? It's another great cliffhanger.
- It depends on preferences for fan service. This chapter has several fan service shots. Her body, mostly her butt, is exposed over the course of chapter. It's good for the Ultear fans, but bad for fans who want a serious chapter.
- With Ultear's spell, it feels like a Deus Ex Machina. Ultear just remember this one spell that she never used, and it just saved Gray and the others' lives. It's a simple solution, but it doesn't have that Fairy Tail vibe, the whole friendship saves people's lives.
Overall, the chapter is great for folks who loved Ultear. This chapter and last week's chapter have been surprising. Not much plot progress, but it's entertaining enough.

Wiki Progress: No new wiki pages has been added last week. I have been transferring episode screenshots to character galleries. It's good to see new fans of Fairy Tail uploading images, but it's been frustrating to delete duplicate images. I ask everyone to please check the episode and character galleries before you add the images.
