A recap of Edolas Fairy Tail guild joining to help and the new armor of the Droma Anim begins the episode.
Natsu, Wendy and Gajeel lay fallen before the Droma Anim
Faust tells the Dragon Slayers and everyone to hand their magic power to him and brags about how his Droma Anim is indestructible. Natsu, Gajeel, and Wendy struggle to get up, and Faust attacks them. Faust tells his Droma Anim to collect the magic from the sky, the land, and the whole world. Gajeel tells his comrades to use their breath at the same time. As they prepare for their attack, the three dragon slayers unleash their combined attacks on Droma Anim which creates a huge explosion. Surprisingly, the Droma Anim is in the sky, and Faust unleashes Dragon Knight Spread Cannon which showers bullets on the Dragon Slayers. Faust lands his mecha dragon on the ground and continues to rant about how the magic belongs to Edolas. Natsu and the others are exhausted of their magic.
"I'm standing right here!"
While the three mages are struggling to get up, Faust comments that it takes time for them to regenerate their magic. Wendy cannot stand up; Gajeel thinks this is the end; Natsu yells that he is still here. Faust stomps on him for his arrogance. Natsu lifts and throws the Droma Anim on its back as he tells his comrade that he will squeeze his magic from tomorrow. Faust fires on Natsu, yet Gajeel uses his iron attack to punch through Droma Anim's foot. He locks Droma Anim, and he urges Natsu to attack. Natsu tells Wendy to send him flying with her breath. As Natsu uses the vortex of Wendy's Roar of the Dragon to get speed, Natsu uses Sword Edge of the Dragon. Faust imagines three real dragons attacking him. Natsu bursts through the Droma Anime while grabbing Faust. He and Faust crash on the ground. Then the Droma Anima explodes into pieces. Faust glances at Natsu and trembles at his face. He faints at the shock of their dragon gaze. The three mages smile for the moment. Natsu laughs that they defeated the king, so he thinks he should say checkmate. However, Wendy corrects him by saying that a person says checkmate before capturing the king. Gajeel calls Natsu an idiot. Although their laughing stops as the earth rumbles beneath them, the floating islands start to fall.
Byro, Sugarboy and Hughes watch the magic disappear
At another location, Lucy Heartphilia notices the same phenomenon while both Grays freak out. The Edolas soldiers and the Edolas Fairy Tail guild are shaking in fear. Happy stares at the sky, and nearby, Chagot explains to the young Exceeds that the floating islands float using the world's magic powers. She fears that the magic is disappearing from the world. Back to the Erzas, both of them notice the yellow aura leaving the ground. In the Edolas kingdom, Byro notices the same yellow auras. Hughes and Sugar Boy meet with Byro. Hughes questions Sugar Boy's comment about how beautiful. Sugar Boy replies that he always thought that magic is fearsome. Somewhere in Edolas, Mystogan and Pantherlily are in the center room where all the magic is flowing out. Mystogan states that he will get rid of all of the magic because people fight over it. He talks about how the Anima is reverse, so the magic will go to Earthland, but Earthland is overflowing with magic. Mystogan says that he will destroy a piece of Edolas to make a new world.
Gray tries to calm his counterpart down
Meanwhile, the Edolas army and the Edolas Fairy Tail guild notices that their weapons are useless since the magic is leaving the weapons. Lucy ponders, Gray Surge mopes over his weapon, Fullbuster tells him to calm down, and Coco says that the world is ending. Happy and Charle continue to look at the magic. Back to the Dragon Slayers, Gajeel asks his team if losing all the magic makes things worse. The islands drop to the ground. Back to the battlefield between the kingdom and Fairy Tail, the Edolas army retreat, and Fullbuster shouts that they won, yet Surge and Edolas Elfman are not happy that they cannot use magic. Cana, Nab, and Jet feel terrible. Droy asks what will they do now without magic while Lucy tells them to calm down. Ashuray yells at Heartphilia that their whole lives are at stake. Dragion, who is on the ground, tells them that they have lost the world even though they won the battle. Juvia comments that she fears the most when all of the magic is gone. Surge cries while the whole guild cries after him. Knightwalker's words make Scarlet look worried.
Pantherlily refuses to go along with Mystogan's plan
In the Edolas kingdom, everyone panicks while Gajeel voice his opinion about how Edolas is everything to them. A grandmother thinks this is punishment for opposing the exceed. Hughes and Sugar Boy wonders how they live without magic as history changes. At the coliseum, Wendy tells them to head back to the city to see what they can do to help the people over there. Natsu, Wendy, and Gajeel rush to the city. At the center world, Mystogan talks about how the people need a new leader if they were to survive without magic. Pantherlily asks Mystogan if he will be the new leader. Yet, Mystogan replies that he cannot since he has not been in this world for a long time which does not give him the right. Mystogan states that the leader is the one who plays both a hero and a villain. He states that he is the villain that overthrow the king and wants Pantherlily to kill him to become the hero. Meanwhile, Edolas Gajeel takes notes of the chaos while a man thinks he is insane. Mystogan's words shock Pantherlily when he explains that Pantherlily should execute him in front of the people to gain their trust. Pantherlily yells at him for spouting nonsense, and as the story ends, Nady watches Pantherlily and Mystogan from behind.
