Natsu and the gang go to a ball to hunt down Velveno to claim the 4 million Jewel reward as they protect Aceto, the princess.
Gray: Let's Dance and Strip!
Natsu and Happy look for a job, and Happy hands him a flyer about Velveno with the bounty of 4 million Jewel. Lucy appears and states that job is perfect for paying her bill. She recalls that Velveno was the person who Gray was searching for. Happy adds in that the bounty was originally 40 thousand Jewel. Natsu laughes at the Count's name, Balsamico, which sounds sour. Macao explains that the Count has a magical ball, and Wakaba added that the ball is held every seven years. The ball is next Saturday, so the gang have to practice dancing according to Lucy. Outside of the guild, Lucy leads Natsu in dancing, and Natsu steps on Lucy's foot. Romeo thinks dancing is about stepping on one's foots. Suddenly, Gray jumps in and takes Lucy while he is stripped naked. Lucy gives him a kick. Observing from the door, Juvia gets angry at Gray for dancing with Lucy. She decides to strip too much to Wakaba and Macao's interests. Erza steps in and demonstrates her skills. She spins Natsu like a top while Happy narrates why she is the dancing demon. Lisanna appears and spins Natsu, too. Elfman wants to join in, and Erza spins him sick.
Wendy gets asked by Warren to dance, and Happy does the same for Carla. She accepts Happy reluctantly. Romeo asks Kinana to dance, too. Macao asks for Mirajane, but Wakaba fights him over Mirajane. Meanwhile, Gajeel tells Levy that he is not going to dance. Droy and Jet try to ask Levy, but the two fight each other for her. A few moments, Droy and Jet see Levy and Gajeel dancing much to their disappointment, and Gajeel acts a bit of a tsundere. Vijeeter tries to show off his move. Lucy freaks out that she has no partner, and Caprico lends a hand while teaching her how to dance. Natsu and gang arriva to the Count's castle where they meet Aceto. Inside, they encounter the Count who explains the request to them. He states that he has a valuable ring for his daughter's husband selection process. The Count warns them about Velveno who can copy powers by contact and can change his form. Cancer gets Lucy ready, and Lucy sees Erza and Wendy in beautiful dresses. In the ball, the girls find Natsu and his group. Meanwhile, Warren, Carla, and Happy use the surveillance lacrima to watch the ball. One crazy gentlemen asks Erza to dance with him, and Erza spins him like crazy. A handsome gentlemen asks Lucy for the dance while two crazy ladies grab Natsu and Gray. Elfman gets lucky with a beautiful lady. Gray takes Elfman's lady, and when Gray asks if she can use powers, the two start exchanging Ice Make magic. Erza stops them immediately. Then, Aceto and her father walk downstairs. Everyone is at awe at Aceto's beauty. Erza takes Aceto to dance with her while a young boy asks Wendy to dance with him. When the clock hits 12AM, the place that holds the key opens up. All the men rush for the key. Happy and Warren sees a boy all tied up. The young boy who danced with Wendy changes himself into Velveno. Natsu challenges Velveno and the two exchange the same flame dragon moves. Erza steps in and attacks Velveno with her Purgatory armor. Velveno counters with the same armor.
Aceto accepts Velveno's marriage proposal
He stops the fighting to explain that he has been trying to get the ring to marry Aceto. It turns out that he and Aceto are childhood friends. Velveno asks Aceto to become his wife, and when Aceto accepts, everyone is shock. However, Aceto accepts on one condition. Velveno must turn himself in to pay for his crimes. The Count refuses to pay Lucy and her group the reward. After the crazy event, Erza has everyone dancing the night out. Lucy talks about how she wants someone to propose to her. Then, Natsu appears, and Lucy thinks he is proposing, but Natsu talks about how full he is. She takes Natsu to dance with her until she finds out Natsu is sick after the troia has wore out.
