The intense battle between Erza and Ikaruga continues. Ikaruga is also a very powerful mage like Erza, being able to slice Erza's swords and also three of her powerful armors, namely the Heaven's Wheel Armor, Flame Empress Armor and Purgatory Armor, with relative ease. Erza then decides to eliminate the distance that separates her from others' hearts, her armor. She has always been afraid and alone, but she states that Fairy Tail taught her how to live alongside with her friends. Now, with all the strength of her comrades in her heart, she is determined to win...
Ikaruga sings a song while battling Erza, but now Erza is more serious and determined to crush her opponent. Erza requips into her Heaven's Wheel Armor and attacks. Both mages have excellent swordsmanship and the battle is tight. Erza attacks with multiple swords, but Ikaruga is able to destroy them along with her armor using her most powerful spell, Yasha's Empty Flash which startles Erza.
Ikaruga attacks with her spell Garuda Flame, but Erza requips to her Flame Empress Armor and she neutralizes her opponent's fire. Ikaruga is impressed with Erza's speed in requipping, but is able to destroy the armor too. Seeing that, Shô also is amazed, who states she is a monster, Ikaruga taunts Erza into using her strongest armor, and she requips into her Purgatory Armor; however, Ikaruga destroys it as well.
Erza then requips into normal clothes, shocking Ikaruga, and causing her to think she is being underestimated. Erza then says that she is not that strong, since she needs armors for protection. She recalls that she was unable to save some of her friends, also remembering all her comrades. Erza states that she was always crying, and she was always alone, but Fairy Tail taught her the truth. What the armor did is only block the space that separates her from others' hearts. And because of her friends' love and warmth, she is no longer lost and is determined to win.
