Eyecatch

At the bar, Gray and Natsu quickly get into a fight. Wendy and Pantherlily notes the two are polar opposites just like their magic. Lucy asks Makarov to break up the two; however, Makarov is too drunk. Erza stops the two only when they ruined her cake with Happy's fried fish. While Erza punishes the two boys, Gajeel arrives with news of a place he found after Natsu had pushed him off in a rail cart during their fight with Sting and Rogue. At the Sabertooth Guild's hotel, Gemma is infuriated at Sting and Rogue's loss with Fairy Tail and beats them. He orders them to remove their crests and get out of his guild. When Lector defends Sting, Gemma wonders why a lowly cat bears their guild's proud crest. Gemma takes out Lector much to Sting's horror. Devastated by Lector's death, Sting attacks Gemma by blasting point blank at his master. Meanwhile in town, Jellal finds the mysterious woman who reveals her true identity. He reports back to Meldy and Ultear. Deep in the mines, Gajeel leads his group into a dragon's graveyard. Happy wonders if Igneel's bones are here. Natsu confirms that his father isn't here. Wendy realizes she can use Milky Way that Porlyusica had taught her.

In town, a mysterious woman writes and records an entry, July 7th - Festival of the Dragon King. In the dragon's graveyard, Wendy finds one soul using her Milky Way spell. With the soul resuming his original form, Zirconis scares Natsu's gang for his own amusement. He teases Natsu about eating Wendy just to get him mad. Zirconis starts explaining about his past, a world full of dragons. When one dragon starts arguing to co-exist with humans, the opposition side starts to go to war. Zirconis states that he opposes living with humans. He informs Natsu's gang that the dragons who on the humans side bestow Dragon Slaying magic upon the humans. Even though it gives them the advantage, it has a cost. One human being gained too much power. That human being transforms into a dragon after killing many dragons. His name is Acnologia.

Once Zirconis's spirit enters Nirvana, Arcadios and Yukine arrive to the scene. Arcadios states that Zeref was the one who turn Acnologia into a dragon and that by killing Zeref, they have higher chance of subjugating Acnologia. Then, Carla has a premonition of the future where Natsu defends Lucy from dragons. Natsu refuses to give up and continues to fight.
