Also, still wondering why everyone was surprise Jellal have the ability to shut his eyes close (I guess, it was an error or something)
Huh. I checked a scanlation and "You did it by shutting your eyes...?!" was "He crushed his own eyes..." which is a completely different sentence.
There is blood below Jellal's eyes, but judging by the last page of the fight it looks like he just slit them. I'm guessing there's a weird translation issue.
