After Fairy Tail makes a triumphant return to Magnolia, it’s back to business as usual. The guild starts taking on some seriously odd jobs and gets a sneak peek into the daily goings-on of the Sabertooth Guild – but when something strange starts happening to one of their own, it’s a sure sign that things are about to get serious. Lucy begins having trouble summoning her celestial spirits, and when they finally appear, they’ve transformed into opposite versions of themselves with no memories of her. When the angry spirits demand their freedom at any cost – even death – it’s up to the guild to enter a series of unusual battles to seal them away until the mystery of what’s gone wrong in the Celestial Spirit World can be sorted out. From an epic dance battle between Gray and Cancer, to Lucy trying to escape a sadistic Virgo – it’s up to Fairy Tail to save the celestial world from itself.

Shiki Tohno has a secret. As the result of a childhood injury, he can see the lines of energy that bind all things together. And by severing those lines he can destroy almost anything. Only a special pair of glasses that mute his extraordinary perceptions has kept him sane, but his attempts at living a “normal” life come to a shocking end when he is approached by a strange and dangerous woman with her own terrifying secret. Now, Shiki is fighting both for his life and to unravel the secrets of his own past; for even with a mysterious female vampire as an ally, how can anyone defeat an enemy whose power is to always be reborn?

Taking a makeup exam after learning the test results of Sharon’s condition, Mutta stands on the verge of achieving the first major step on his journey to the stars: officially becoming an astronaut. But the written test is only a prelude to the most hazardous trials of all. Strapped into the seat of a T38 jet, flying faster than the speed of sound, and learning to fly on instruments only, a single mistake on Mutta’s part can mean instant disaster. On the positive side, if he’s going Mach 1 when something does go wrong, Mutta probably won’t have to worry about it very long.
