AND THE WINNER IS... In the final matches of the Grand Magic Games, a wounded Erza struggles against a sadistic Minerva who can twist space itself, Gajeel sinks into the shadows against a powered-up Rogue, and Laxus faces down impossible odds against Jura, the world's fifth-strongest wizard. But as the Games end, the kingdom prepares for a day Natsu never thought he'd see: the return of the dragons!
PREMONITIONS AND PROMOTIONS ? Natsu and gang return to Earthland from Edolas, and back at home, it's time for the annual S-class wizard promotion test! The eight participants, including Natsu, choose partners and head for Tenrou Island, where Fairy Tail's first master was laid to rest. Only one will pass! Who will join the magical elite?
A RECKLESS RESCUE! To the surprise of no one, Natsu hasn't really thought through his plan to rescue Lucy. Along the way, they face a death trap, a team of magical executioners, and...another Lucy?! Meanwhile Erza struggles through a three-way free-for-all with the world's other two most powerful women wizards! Will the world survive Fairy Tail's attempts to save it?!
MASTER AGAINST MASTER Just as the S-class wizard test gets underway, everything goes wrong! Grimoire Heart launches a surprise attack on Fairy Tail. But the guild is just collateral damage - their real goal is much more sinister. At the vanguard of the invasion force is Grimoire Heart's master, Hades... a man who only respects power, and has a history with Makarov!
THAT'S THE SPIRIT? A powerful user of magic, with a goat's head? It'd be funny if it weren't trying to slaughter Fairy Tail! Loke has an idea of the wizard's true identity - but while he fights to prove it, Ultear has already reached the sleeping Zeref, and she has plans of her own for the legendary black wizard...
THIS AIN'T THE SAT! ? Natsu, Levy, Gray and the others face a fierce trial to reach the coveted S class! But with a mysterious death wizard wandering the island in search of Natsu, a mystery man manipulating the memories of the entire guild and a powerful dark force preparing to mount an invasion, one thing is clear - this test really needs a proctor!
PAWNS VS. GRANDMASTER Fairy Tail's remaining wizards stand against Hades, a former master of the guild who has already defeated his successor, Makarov! But can they really take on someone with an encyclopedic knowledge of their magic and deadly lost magic of his own? It'll take the return of a wayward son and an unlikely alliance to turn the tide!
KNOCK ON WOOD! Erza is up against Azuma, a dark wizard who uses trees as conduits to draw upon the magic of the earth itself. He uses this mysterious power to fell the great tree at the heart of Sirius Island, depriving all the Fairy Tail wizards of their magic! Can a nearly powerless Erza hope to stand against him? And where has Zeref the Black Wizard gone?
A ROYAL DOUBLE-CROSS! King Faust finally reveals his plan - and it's even crueler than anyone imagined! Happy, Carla and Lucy have to hurry if they're going to rescue Natsu and Wendy from the king's torturous magic extraction machine and stop a genocidal scheme that would kill the remaining Fairy Tail members. But first, they'll have to make it through... an amusement park?!
THE BLACK DRAGON AND THE END OF FAIRY TAIL! Grimoire Heart is in disarray, but it1s already too late! Acnologia, the Black Dragon of the Apocalypse, is on its way to unleash death magic that will consume the world. To this massive beast, the 3dragon slayers2 are little more than insolent insects. There are some enemies not even Fairy Tail can defeat, and after this confrontation the guild will never be the same!
