It's a race against time as the members of Fairy Tail split up into groups to find the scattered pieces of the mystical clock before Legion, but they run into all manner of obstacles. Nor does it help that Natsu is currently a doll-sized version of himself.
While the Fairy Tail ladies marvel at little Natsu who is sitting on top of Happy's head, Gray picks up Natsu and asks if Max is going to open up shop. Gray proposes selling slant eyed munchkins much to Natsu's annoyance. Meanwhile, Lucy concentrates cracking the book's mysteries. Elsewhere, Dan and Samuel reunite with Byro's group. Back at Fairy Tail guild, Lucy begins explaining what she learned from the book. The book is about a girl who travels the world for six special keys which she thinks will grant her happiness. However, the people around her became unhappy. The first key "went" on a journey which reflects how the clock hand is brought to Fairy Tail. The other five keys are in various places. The sixth key is at a church. Lucy explains that the key is not at Kardia Cathedral, and she thinks her father has scattered the keys. When she asks Michelle, she states that Jude did not say anything before he died. Makarov states that something will happened if all six keys are found. Lucy and the gang embark on a journey to hunt for the keys in five different groups (dictated by Erza).
Juvia's Dream Family
In Pantherlily's group, he leads Levy's Shadow Gear through the rocky canyons, and Droy stumbles on the ground. When Jet asks Pantherlily where is he going, Pantherlily replies that they will get a strong person on their team that goes "Gee-hee). Elsewhere in the forest, Juvia and Gray walk together, and Juvia has a dream about she and Gray having a child of their own. Then, Lyon appears from out of nowhere without reason. Out over the ocean, Natsu, Romeo, Lucy, Happy, and Michelle take a boat to their destination. While Natsu suffers from motion sickness, Happy remarks that their group is vulnerable. Then, a group of archaeologists appear.
At a waterfall, Pantherlily's group find Gajeel training under a waterfall while getting shocked by thunder. Even though Pantherlily is scared of thunder, he joins Gajeel in his training. Somewhere in the open plains, Wendy, Carla, and Cana trek to their destination, and they stop when Erza has them to have a picnic. Though, Erza's picnic is ruined when a group of bandits riding on strange horses demand they not do a picnic on their turf. When the bandits realize that Erza's group is Fairy Tail, they start eating Erza's food after demanding treasure. In Juvia's group, Juvia swoons over the love triangle while Lyon and Gray bicker a bit. Somehow, Lyon knows what Gray and his guild are looking for. Somewhere by the ocean, Elfman cooks man stew for his sisters, Lisanna and Mirajane. Lisanna asks them why they picked a spot on the cliff to eat.
Over at Lucy's location, the archeologists also learned what Lucy's group is after. One of the archaeologists notes that some of the ruins are where the keys are hidden and they want to Lucy to stop to prevent damage to the ruins. In the plains, Erza finishes off the bandits, and over in the forest, Lyon's group arrives at the ruins. Back at sea, the boss tries to tell Lucy to stop, but Lucy states that she doing this because her father believes in her. Lucy vows to solve this riddle for her father's sake, and the archeologists are easily persuaded. When Natsu is blown off the ship and into the ocean, Natsu cannot swim due to the waves giving him motion sickness. The archeologists dived into the sea and grab Natsu and undo the spell on him as they throw him back on board. Jean Luc appears to know Jude as he mentions his name. Later, Natsu and the gang reach a vast desert.
