Natsu torches Madmorl’s and burns through his armor. Wendy now nude, is given some clothing from the spirit world. Lucy, Carla, Gray, and Happy get back together, and prepare to fight Skullion and Madmorl. Shocking everyone, Madmorl gets up after Natsu’s match. Natsu’s flames begin emitting heat, resulting in Kyria’s clothing melting. Ezra’s is unaffected because she’s wearing the “armor of the flame empress.” Kyria attacks claiming that “we’re going to eat these flames.”
Ezra isn’t phased by this and she attacks using Flame Empress’s Rising Fire Cutter. Kyria is teleported by Skullion. Natsu and the rest of Fairy Tail impress Skullion. He reveals that they are no longer interested in the Water God. They now want the White Witch, he reveals that there are more of them. Skullion then leaves, promising that they will return. Their ship dissipates into ash. The Water God Dragon awakens and tells Caramille’s to run.
The villains of the series so far are too generic. Skullion in particular has thin characterization. While it’s likely that they will get more depth, but so far their behavior is predictable. That said a guild of Dragon Eaters seem interesting. I haven’t been able to really get into this series yet. It’s only the 16th chapter, but I feel something is missing. I like reading it but not as excited for the chapter like I am for other series.
