Acnologia descends upon Tenrou Island, destroying everything in sight. Meanwhile, on Grimoire Heart's Airship, Zeref says his goodbyes to Natsu and announces the end of the current era, leaving Fairy Tail for dead. Makarov, sensing the Dragon's strength, engages him head on and then commands everyone to flee Tenrou Island and to obey what may very well be his final order.
The members of the guild start feeling an ominous presence surrounding them. Soon after, a loud cry reaches their ears as Wendy realizes that it is the cry of a Dragon. The members get together as Panther Lily points at a a large winged-beast flying in the sky. As everyone ponders it, Bickslow realizes that it is a Dragon. The Dragon Slayers are shocked as they realize that Dragons still exist in the worlds. Makarov calls him the Black Dragon of the Apocalypse, Acnologia. Natsu tries asking him where Igneel is, but, however, it is to no avail, as Acnologia comes descends, destroying the land. The Dragon's size frightens everyone while Gildarts tells them to run.
They try heading back to the ship as Acnologia continues to destroy the surroundings. Carla asks Wendy if she can talk to the Dragon. Wendy replies that she can't, but adds that Dragons can understand them, as they are highly intelligent. Zeref, elsewhere, states that Acnologia believes himself to be superior to humans in every way, and sees them as nothing more than pests, and will therefore ignore any attempts at communication. Zeref then states the era to be over and says goodbye to Natsu.
As the Dragon approaches, Makarov tells everyone to escape and uses his Giant, intending on fighting Acnologia on equal ground, and tackles the Black Dragon head-on. Others run, showing concern for the master. The Thunder God Tribe tries to help but are ordered back, with Makarov berating them for disobeying their master's final orders, a word which shocks Mirajane. Natsu tries to fight since he is a Dragon Slayer but is grabbed and pulled away by Laxus. Though angry, he does not fight back, as he notices Laxus' tears as he leaves his grandfather behind.
Everyone, in tears, runs away as Makarov continues to battle the beast, asking if sadness can really kill someone, wondering why they cry. He tells them that the answer lies in their hearts, and that they must live on into the future.
