Wow. Okay, this volume really blew me away. As the final people standing from both Fairy Tail and the Nine Demon Gates reaches a fever pitch, one one-on-one battle takes on a personal - and fatal - significance. Old friends show up (because it's fairy tail so of course they did) and the villains who one seemed so superior show a few cracks in their armor.
As the last volume focused on Lucy and the one before gave Wendy a moment of badassery, this time it's Gray's turn to step up in the face in incredible odds. And in the end - what a great finish! Cannot WAIT for the next volume!
