Following Ichiya's kidnapping, The Trimens reveal to the Thunder God Tribe about their guild's rivals, Red Princess, who always wanted Ichiya to join them. Laxus states that they should leave the former to return by his own, in which they reply that Blue Pegaus's ace is weak without his Perfumes. Eventually, Laxus and the group decide to go and save him, considering him as one of their family. At Red Princess Headquarters, Ichiya is being torturing by being tickled with roses, as Master Briana persuading him to join their guild. Suddenly, the four Mages enter the guild and tend to leave upon seeing Ichiya's wired posture, misunderstanding the situation. Master Briana stops them, saying that they won't let them go like that.

At Red Princess Guild Hall, Laxus, Freed, Bickslow and Evergreen are confronted by Master Briana, and are later joined by The Trimens.

Confused by her statement, Laxus steps in, demanding that she ends this right now so they can go back, just to be surrounded by thunder clouds as the Master states he mustn't underestimate her. The Lightning Dragon Slayer is then striked by Gloomy Day's Elegy, as a team of four female Mages appear.

After requiping Thunder Armor, Sonnet, alongside the three girls, combine their powers into a Unison Raid, stiking the Dragon Slayer with Four Lightning Symphony, damaging the surrounding area. After taking such a heavy attack, Laxus kepps standing, much to the girls' impression, while Sonnet suggest they go for an "encore".

The battle between Maiden Quaretet and Laxus continues, with the girls brutalizing the former with their Unison Raid.

Laxus then, unaffected, rises and strikes the whole area with his Raging Bolt. He then states that the warm up is over and it time for round two, just to find that Maiden Quaretet was completely wiped off with his attack, much to his shock. It is then revealed that all the previous attacks were just mere illusions. As Laxus gets angry for being trolled, Red Princess Guild Master, Briana decides to interfere to end this conflict. Excited, Laxus charges at the Master, who readies her Magic for the battle. As the Lightning Dragon Slayer delivers his punch, Ichiya blocks the attack, taking the fist himself.

6. Blue Toast
After taking the fist, Ichiya flies away and falls down, much to everyone's shock. He then tells Laxus to stop fighting now, before Briana falls into tears, stating that after hurting him, she can't claim Ichiya anymore. Laxus the, irritated, yells at Ichiya and demands him to explain what is happening and why is he belittling him. Ichiya responds that he isn't and thanks him for coming to save him, pleased to know that they were the first ones to come to his aid. After that, the Blue Pegasus Mages return to their guild and party all night, celebrating their ace's rescue. Laxus sits away in a corner silently, much to the Thunder God Tribe's concern, before Ichiya comes to him, inviting him for a drink. When asked why he's so loved, Ichiya replies that he's just handsome, leaving the four Mages startled. After he goes for the chant, The Trimens step in, explaining Ichiya's real "strength" in how he was able to end a conflict without Magic, adding that they trust themselves to him. After that, Laxus tells Freed, Bickslow and Evergreen that they will be drinking with the guild. Flash of Great Lightning 6 Cover June 8, 2016
