The Edolas arc is the tenth story arc of the Fairy Tail series.

With Wendy admitted into Fairy Tail and Gildarts' homecoming, the entire town of Magnolia is thrown into disarray, as they are all sucked into the parallel universe, Edolas, through a portal. Seeing no other way to get their friends back, Natsu, Wendy, Happy, and Carla utilize the pieces of the portal in order to travel to where their friends are. When they arrive, however, everything is not what it seems to be, as they find out that their friends are not the ones they lost. To make matters worse, in the midst of it all, they are thrown into a terrifying plot involving the Exceeds, the Dragon Slayers, and Mystogan's own father: Faust!


New Member, New FriendsEdit

Team Natsu returns home to their Guild with Wendy and Carla. Natsu enjoys a short time of sick free transport and Lucy thinks back to all that happened after learning the truth about Cait Shelter. The Allied Forces members have all headed back to their respective guilds on good terms. Lucy is approached by Gemini, Scorpio, and Aries who tells her of Angel's arrest and their voided contracts. They ask to form a contract with Lucy, and she is surprised to receive 3 of the 12 ecliptic keys at once. She also shows her kindness to them, which is no surprise for Gemini, confusion for being called a person for Scorpio, and happiness for Aries for finding a nice owner, free of mistreatment, and being able to be with Loke again.[1]

They learn that Wendy is the Sky Dragon Slayer, and the Master then throws a welcome party for Wendy and Carla. Wendy instantly takes a liking to the guild but Carla is somewhat disturbed by the guild's immaturity. Gajeel, leaning on the pole as he watches the festivity, becomes frustrated to see both Natsu and Wendy have their own cats while he is the only Dragon Slayer without one.

However, when they carry out their plan, and enter the secret tunnel, they are ambushed and are captured by the army led by Edolas Erza.

Truth of the 6 Year MissionEdit

Lucy captured by Army of Edolas

Lucy will be executed?!

With Natsu and Wendy captured, they try to get some answers but have only learned that Lucy will be executed, and that the exceeds carried out their mission perfectly. Happy and Carla then wake up in a room to meet up with Nadi and Nichiya, who congratulate them. Shortly after, they learn that Queen Shagotte, who sent them to Earth Land when they were still in their eggs, ordered them to kill the Dragon slayers. However, they don't understand how they completed their mission since they didn't carry out their mission at all. The captain of the exceeds tells them that the queen decided to change their mission at the last minute to capture the Dragon slayers. However, they had no way to reach them and tell them about the change, so when Carla and Happy brought Natsu and Wendy to Edolas, they unintentionally carried out their mission.[20]

Carla then breaks down because she thought for sure that she was abandoning the mission by helping them rescue their friends, but instead led them to a trap, doing what she didn't want to, and failing to protect Wendy. She cries, feeling that everything she did was just being manipulated and that everything that happened was a lie that they built up in their heads. However, Happy stands up for Carla by saying that they aren't their puppets, but Mages of Fairy Tail.[21] They decide to escape, and try to save their friends on their own, being labelled as fallens in the process. After a short chase through the town they hide in a wagon, but it rolls down the hill with them on board.[22]

Shortly after, a farmer shows up and then the army catches up to them instead of turning Happy and Carla over to the army, he tells them to hide out in his house. There, the farmer and his wife treat Happy and Carla with hospitality and they learn that the reason they save them is because they were banished from the kingdom and therefore they don't listen to their laws. Happy still decides to rescue their friends and tries to think of the next course of action, but Carla is still filled with guilt and feels that there is nothing she can do.[23]

After Carla regains her senses, she and Happy decide to head out towards the Royal Capital and help save their friends.

At first, she tries to ask her for help but then she gets dragged out of her cell and onto a ledge where she is about to be pushed off. She later learns that this Erza is the one from Edolas and that unlike their Earth Land Erza, she is an enemy who enjoys hunting Fairy Tail Mages. Just as she gets pushed off, Happy and Carla manage to arrive and catch her. Later, Carla tries to get some info as to where Natsu and Wendy are by pretending to be Queen Shaggote's daughter. She manages to find out their location but fails to get Edolas Erza to release them, since the other royal guards arrived and told Erza that they are the Fallens. As they try to retreat, Captain Nichiya and an army of exceed arrive and try to catch them.

As they run down to stairs to where they are, they get attacked by Erza Knightwalker and her army and realize that the army is already draining the Dragon slayer magic out of their friends, which is their life force and could kill them. Despite Carla demanding they return Wendy, Erza ignores her and prepares to kill her, but Happy defends her and says to kill him first.

The Dragon slayer magic that the army wants can be used for many different purposes, one of which can be used to release people from the Lacrima. Realizing that since Gajeel released Gray and Erza, and then he should be able to do the same with the others, Happy flies towards Gajeel and takes him to where Lacrima is located. When they finally arrive at the room where Natsu and Wendy are, they find out that they are too late, but then Gray pulls out a bottle of pills to feed Natsu and Wendy. They soon regain consciousness, and learn that the reason Gray and Erza were able to use magic despite being in Edolas is because the pills they got from Mystogan let them use their magic; Lucy then recalls being fed the same pill by Mystogan when she was sent to Edolas. The moment Natsu wakes up, he charges out of the room and Wendy tells them that the army plans to use the Dragon slayer magic to smash the giant lacrima into Extalia and create eternal magic.[28]

Shortly, Byro shows up and demands for the key, which Lucy mistakes for her celestial spirit keys, and decides to defend Coco from Byro.[33] As they start fighting Lucy summons Taurus to fight against Byro but learns that Byro's magic involves throwing liquid with varying effects, which takes out Taurus in an instant. She then summons Virgo who manages to trap Byro in a pithole for a while, until he takes a liquid which transforms him into a giant humanoid octopus. Realizing that Lucy is using a lot of magic to summon the zodiac spirits, Virgo decides to give her a celestial whip to battle against Byro. Lucy uses the celestial whip to tie up Byro's tentacle and sends him crashing into a wall just as Natsu managed to punch Hughes through the wall on the opposite side, knocking them both out.[34]

Erza Knightwalker then cuts her hair so as not to confuse herself with Erza Scarlet.[40]

Natsu reaches Extalia with Happy just in time to try to stop the giant Lacrima from ramming on Extalia. Meanwhile in Extalia startling revelations are made by the the queen, showing everyone her only wing she has due to her lack of Magic Power. With everyone shocked, the story continues to unveil as the elders say that they do not decide who will die but it was thanks to Shagotte's precognition ability that they knew who was going to die thus they build a husk around this fact to mislead the humans and make them fear them as they once ill-treated the Exceeds. Still Carla's determination does not waver and she flies to help her friends to save her homeland Extalia alongside with Nadi.[41]

When Mystogan tells him that won't quell the chaos, Pantherlily offers to be the villain instead.

Gajeel couldn't be much happier and hugs him tightly due to the fact that he finally got his cat.[56]

Reunion with Natsu

Pantherlily states that he caught a suspicious person, everyone is shocked, especially Natsu, when that person is shown to be Lisanna. She asks Pantherlily if he is an Exceed, to which he replies by stating his name, and Gajeel angrily asks her if she is picking a fight with his cat. When Lisanna sees Natsu, she runs towards him and hugs him. While she hugs Happy, she greets both Gray and Erza. She notices Lucy and Wendy too, and deduces they must be the Earth Land versions of their counterparts back in Edolas. Gray then asks if she's Lisanna of Earth Land, to which she replies yes.[57]

Lisanna disappears

Everyone is further shocked, and Happy and Natsu happily try to hug her, but Erza stops them and states that Lisanna died two years ago. Lisanna then explains the truth to everyone about how Anima absorbed her when Mirajane tried to heal her, after waking up in Edolas she found Edolas Fairy Tail. Everyone mistook her for her Edolas counterpart who was said to have died after falling from a high place, Edolas Elfman and Edolas Mirajane were overjoyed to see their "sister" alive again. Lisanna explains she would have felt bad if she told them she wasn't actually the sister they knew so she just pretended all that time.[58]

Lisanna continues that when Natsu and others came to Edolas, she was shocked to discover that they are the Natsu and Happy from Earth Land. Natsu asks why didn't she tell the truth when they first met, to which Lisanna says that she couldn't bear the weight of hurting her adopted siblings. However, when the Anima sucked the living beings with Magic inside away, she began to glow. Lisanna tries to explain, but Mirajane and Elfman of Edolas reveals that they already knew. Elfman says that they already noticed, but just couldn't say it, and apologizes. Mirajane then says that she's like their Lisanna, someone who's really kind, and thus she can't let her real siblings cry anymore. As Lisanna tearfully scream out their names, Mirajane asked her to give them their regards.[59]
