With Gildarts leading the charge, he blasts back God Serena as a declaration against Alvarez; the Ishgar warriors following his cleared pathway to the guild. More of the Spriggan 12 make their move, engaging the resistance in a battle they've have yet to ever face.
Gildarts finally returns and excitement ensues amidst the battlefield. Everyone is hopeful once again. Cana points out that he has joined the fray very late and Gildarts excitedly hugs her, having met her after a long time. Cana says that he should stop since they are in the middle of a battle and Gildarts agrees.
Gildarts notices God Serena and doesn't sense the magic of a living human coming from him. He remarks that he might have been a formidable opponent when he was alive but he is nothing more than a small-fry now. God Serena replies that he is only blabbering on and doesn't know his true power. They headbutt and the others are blown from the shockwave created by their magic powers clashing.
Wendy notices that Romeo is scared and tries to console him. Romeo says that he is indeed terrified by the sheer number of enemies, even though he charged in passionately at first. He says that he is pathetic from being scared and that his legs have been trembling from the beginning. Wendy calms him by pointing out that deep down, every one of them is scared and what's important is to rely on each other and give it their all.
Ajeel creates a sandstorm and Gray remarks that he has returned while Erza says that the storm has enveloped Magnolia. Elfman says that he will make a 'Manly' path for everyone. He enters Beast Soul: Sandbeast and charges on towards Ajeel, while the later uses Antlion Pit and stops Elfman in his tracks. Lisanna rescues Elfman from the vortex using Animal Soul: Harpy.
Jacob is getting ready to take on Fairy Tail when Mirajane punches him in the face and declares that she will be his opponent. Mira's scantily clothed form causes Jacob to remark, "How utterly vulgar". Mira covers her nearly exposed breasts and is visibly embarrassed. Wahl Icht and Bradman charge forward when they are engaged by Rogue and Minerva. Lector remarks that he doesn't see Sting and Rogue replies that they were seperated when the light flashed. When Yukino asks how they found them, they point out Kinana and say that she, being a Fairy Tail member, guided them.
Wahl remarks that things are starting to heat up when Bradman recognizes Rogue' shadow magic. Rogue points out their abnormal magic power to Minerva to which she replies that the two are indeed dead. Minerva asks Yukino to find out the puppet master controlling the dead and take care of him. Yukino gladly accepts.
The Alvarez army advances as Romeo notes that everyone is fighting with all they've got just to make it back to the guild. Natsu charges head-on and challenges them as the foot soldiers of the Alvarez army assert that they won't let them through.
The fight between Gildarts and God Serena continues. Serena remarks that his magic is being 'broken apart' when Gildarts says that he always wanted to know which one would win if they were to fight at their full strength,but unfortunately, he will not be able to. Gildarts uses Crushing Evil, Spreading the Truth: Empyrean and finishes off Serena. Everyone's hopes are up after seeing Gildarts while he remarks that they should give it all they've got as the guild is not much far away now. Fairy Tail charge in with full force. Romeo is finally excited and doesn't seem afraid anymore. The chapter ends as Invel stares down on Fairy Tail.
