Albareth Empire arc

So, it seems we got a pretty big worldbuilding chapter that introduced an entire new continent + a lot of backstory for the universe. Given that Makarov went to Albareth to stall the empire from invading Ishgar to get LH, it's kinda obvious what this arc will be about. Insivel (talk) 06:48, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

Give it a couple chapters. Last arc seemed pretty obvious to be about the rebuilding of Fairy Tail and it didnt turn out that way-- God · Pray · 06:52,6/8/2015

I wantd 2 propose a name change! THIS WAR has an ofical name now whic shuld reflect the arc! insterd of Alvarez EMpire shouldn't it be "Dragon King festival" or "ragnork"? howeva u spell it-- 02:42, February 1, 2016 (UTC)

The Dragon King festival is not the central plot element of this arc, the Alvarez Empire is-- God · Pray · 03:05,2/1/2016 

I agre! think there shuld be at least a vote for formailtes, besides Zeref mentioned this war from the last few chapters in the avatar arc too duh. so once it was made official wht the plan was for the arc in ChP 445 that should be the main idea and point of the arc cause dats the meat of it . I cant vote but it should at least be voted on plz I;m fine with either DKF arc or ragnarok :p 15:34, February 7, 2016 (UTC)

I've proposed a new name which I find equally as valid as the two new proposals-- God · Pray · 20:01,2/7/2016 

Dragon King Festival arc

Ragnarok arc

  1. Support Support - The arc focuses on the war, which is called Ragnarok. Acnologia is also an integral part of the war (rather than just an extra like in previous arcs). Acnologia is participating not because of the Alvarez Empire's participation, but because it is the Dragon King Festival (or Ragnarok) of prophecy. Ragnarok is the inevitable final war which Zeref was researching and has been the motive of the Alvarez Empire, not the other way around. Many important aspects such as Natsu's past, Layla, Mavis and Zeref's past, etc. are important parts of the arc and not related to the Alvarez Empire. Rather they and Fairy Heart are related to defeating Acnologia (during Ragnarok). Fairy Tail's motive is not even to defeat the Empire, it is to protect themselves and Fairy Heart from all opponents. This arc isn't about the Empire, it's about the final war. Everything leading to Ragnarok, which is currently taking place. Alvarez Empire arc is just inappropriate. Even Defeat Acnologia arc would be more suitable considering that's what everything is leading up to. --Sane Lunatic (talk) 10:27, February 8, 2016 (UTC)

Alvarez Empire arc

  1. Support Support - I can't take the arguments of people that are unable to spell or use grammar properly seriously... Derax PaganiTartaros 15:41, February 7, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Support Support - I get anon's point but the entire arc has been all about Alvarez... DKF or ragnarok or whatever tf it is has been mentioned what will happen, but not the overall arc.. might as well call it the Mavis & Zeref arc if we only doing parts of the arc NcduruRavens wallpaper (2) 15:43, February 7, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Support Support - I respect the fact that you're approaching this with adherence for formalities, but at the same time, Ragnarok has only just begun, and we have absolutely no clue if it will continue, or if Hiro will throw a wrench in the whole design. Arc names are supposed to encompass names that link together the myriad plot points and unite them under a single title. Barring Macao arc since it was the first three chapters, all arc names have some sort of encompassing effect. Ragnorok and/or Dragon King Festival are just certain aspects of this war. There is so much more, and Alvarez Empire is the safer way to refer to the arc as how it will unfold is, as I've said, a mystery.

Summary Division

I think we should divide up the Ishgar vs Alakitasia part into the different frontiers like the "Southern Campaign" or something like that.--CNBA3 (talk) 17:56, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

idk where to break it up at lol it is getting dumb long but I like the sub-title of the entire war and don't want that to change so we'll have to get creative NcduruRavens wallpaper (2) 19:22, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

I honestly see no point in that. Line breaks between paragraphs aren't used for no reason DispellingSiegrain ChibiMage19:30,4/28/2016

true, if FT wins or Alvarez get Fairy Heart or something a new subtitle could be made. The entire war is under the subtitle so it should be cool until something new happens NcduruRavens wallpaper (2) 19:34, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

Done. Either be consistent with those sub-titles or don't use them at all. There is no point in having one super abstract title that covers 3/4 of the arc.. Miskos3 Message

Very nice, thank you Miskos!--CNBA3 (talk) 22:31, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

Volume 53

I found this interesting.. peep the comment under the Natsu-Zeref art pic, Hiro refers to this arc as "Alvarez arc". Not sure if he's just being general or this is the actual true arc name, if someone had this volume in Japanese that would be helpful cause if the kanji goes like アルバレスの編 then it really might be the name of the arc, which really isn't big of a change plus it's official one from Hiro NcduruRavens wallpaper (2)

Wrath and I already talked about that and I think that it's just a shortened version. That page has a limit on words, after all. In my opinion, it'd be very silly to cut the name. That'd be like... Oracion arc. Tenrou arc. Doesn't seem too nice, does it? Miskos3 Message 08:00, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

pic - Nertype (talk) 08:51, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

My opinion still hasn't changed, and in the raw volume it does indeed say アルバレス編 (Arubaresu Hen, or Alvarez Chapter/Arc), and apparently more than once and in more than one place. I'm of the belief that if that's what the volume afterword itself says, coming from Hiro's mouth, then we should use it. I mean, it's the same amount of characters as Tartaros arc, and it's only two characters shy of Alvarez Empire, so I don't see the need to really shorten the name of the arc in a volume when Japanese is kind of a succinct language compared to English anyway. So I would love to use Alvarez arc. It's better than the one we ourselves made up, anyway.
WrathRogue ChibiZero 15:37, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

Right I'm with the change... rather go with anything Hiro says out his mouth than our stuff, who is us to tell Hiro? NcduruRavens wallpaper (2) 19:05, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

hey guys my two cents is that we should use anything that Hiro says from his mouth that is backed up kanji, this being a great example. "Alvarez empire arc" so more complete than "Alvarez arc" but it's not our story it's Hiro's, so what he says goes in my opinion. Started the vote if you don't mind-- 10:44, May 2, 2016 (UTC)

Alvarez arc
  1. Support Support - I don't really care which one we use cause they're both cool and technically right but I rather go with what Hiro says over what we say 95-100% of the time, if he says it should go cause it is his story, not ours so I'm down NcduruRavens wallpaper (2) 22:22, May 2, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Support Support - Since when does speculation trump what Mashima says? It being a shortened name is just pure speculation. Of course there are rare times when a decision has to be made, some speculation is needed (to a degree), but when it comes to info coming from Mashima himself, who are we to speculate against it? If he used Alvarez Empire arc once and Alvarez arc once, then fair enough, obviously the latter is a shorted one, but this is not the case, and we only have one name from Mashima. From what I know, with all the arc names that have come from Mashima, I have never seen him use a shortened one. For the record, I like Alvarez Empire way more, but this isn't about preference.--DuelMaster93 (talk) 18:02, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Support Support - Shouldn't be a discussion if it was a term slated by Hiro. Shorterning a term shouldn't be a problem now of all times, because if it were, we'd have names such as Avatar Guild arc. Either way, Hiro's names are official and it's what we have been and should be using. :Umnei:Juvia'sPictureForUmneiSignature 19:44, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Support Support - lol, let's not be ridiculous. Alvarez is as much slang for Alvarez Empire as China is for People's Republic of China. I sincerely doubt that Mashima put any serious thought into giving the arc a canon name when he made those remarks, but... it's what we have. It cannot be contradicted and we do not speculate. Until he refers to it by a different name later, be it Alvarez Empire arc or the Spriggan 12 Are Asswipes arc, I don't see how we can ignore Mashima's own words. Plus, nobody wants Dark Guild Tartaros arc or Legal Guild Phantom Lord arc, right? :P --Sane Lunatic (talk) 20:43, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Support Support - Sure, w/e. Derax PaganiTartaros 12:55, May 5, 2016 (UTC)

    WrathRogue ChibiZero 13:35, May 5, 2016 (UTC)
Alvarez Empire arc
  1. Support Support - For I do not think cutting a term is acceptable. It is 'Alvarez Empire' even if characters sometimes go with just Alvarez in their dialogues, kinda like a slang or something. Same goes for the afterword. Miskos3 Message 11:29, May 2, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Support Support - Agreed with Misk, sometimes the shorter one is used like slang to make it easy to say. Like if their was a dark guild with a longer name then most would just go with an abbreviation of it instead.Libra ClearAnimaltamer7Libra key02:57, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Support Support - Guureat...another name vote What people above me said
    DispellingSiegrain ChibiMage17:37,5/3/2016
  4. Support Support - Man, I just hate slang words. 'Alvarez Empire' makes much more sense than 'Alvarez' anyway. Onfire.gif Wonder Talk 17:50,5/3/2016
  5. Support Support - I thought this over long and hard, and I'm going to have to go with Alvarez Empire arc. You guys are kinda being ridiculous imo. Context is very important when making decisions like these. Naming the arc wasn't the point or purpose of the afterword. It was just mentioned in passing. If Mashima had said, "Hey guys, here's a list of arc names," then I'd feel differently, but that wasn't the case. He was likely just using shorthand. Nothing more. Nothing less. Furthermore, your whole "Phantom Lord Guild" argument is beyond ridiculous, but I think you both knew that when you said it, so... :P Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben04:26,5/4/2016
  6. Support Support - its kinda like saying Tenrou Island, Galuna Island and Phantom Lord arcs = "Tenrou arc", "Galuna arc" and "Phantom arc"... imo Tenrou/Galuna feels incomplete without Island (as well as Phantom to Lord)....(BUT there is an exception like the Macao arc instead of a "Macao Conbolt arc" xD) --PhoenixFlames23 (talk) 10:05, May 4, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Support Support - "Empire" gives the context of what Alvarez means. Also Rai's and Phoenix's arguments convinced me. We know sometimes they call it Tenrou or w/e, but we still name it as Tenrou Island. I mean if we just called it Tenrou arc, then people may wonder if we mean Tenrou Team or Tenrou Island. Same with Alvarez.[furbie.helios.tissue.moup.yuki] 16:01, 5/5/2016  

I would not begin the vote if Hiro didn't say this directly and if there wasn't any kanji, we should 100% of the time go with what Hiro says from his mouth over our stuff cause it's his story. If this arc was name Natsu beats everything arc and it had kanji we would have to go with it :p thank gosh it's not 10:44, May 2, 2016 (UTC)

Avatar isn't even a guild, nor has it been called in such way at any point, so your example isn't valid. I would agree with you if we had things like Oracion arc or Tenrou arc or even Games arc... Miskos3 Message 20:29, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

Whateves, fine, Tartaros Guild Arc. Or even better, Tartaros Dark Guild Arc. :Umnei:Juvia'sPictureForUmneiSignature 20:45, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
But those aren't the names... lol. The guild is called 'Tartaros', nothing more. You are mixing up stuff. Miskos3 Message 20:56, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
Well, the decision of my vote doesn't stem from the point you keep responding to, it's just a factor~
:Umnei:Juvia'sPictureForUmneiSignature 21:00, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
I think your decision is based on a wrong point, thus my responses. Miskos3 Message 21:13, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

As I said to Ummy... You are making up stuff. The guild is called 'Phantom Lord', nothing more. We have 'Alvarez Empire', not Alvarez. You wouldn't call my country 'Slovak' either, because it's 'Slovak Republic'. Miskos3 Message 20:56, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

Not really. We're just explaining that the form of the state or institution does not have to be affixed every time. In many cases, simply the name suffices and is definitely correct. Phantom Lord is the name, Legal Guild is the form of the organization. Alvarez is the name, Empire is the form of the state... I normally call it Slovakia, just like I'd expect you to use India rather than Republic of India. ._./ --Sane Lunatic (talk) 21:05, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
And that's the point, exactly. Slovakia is the less formal, less official name, but at least it is a name. We don't have Alvarezia or anything alike. Alvarez Empire is the name of the country, simple as that. And even if we do go as far as to compare India or Slovakia to Alvarez, I find it a little... unprofessional? To use the slang/non-official name for the name of the arc. As I said, it's like using Oracion arc. Miskos3 Message 21:13, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
I think examples such as X791 Grand Magic Games arc, Macao Conbolt arc, Fairy Tail Zero arc would better illustrate Sane's and Umnei's points.--DuelMaster93 (talk) 21:24, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
Nah, they wouldn't. Macao arc is dumb to begin with, but this isn't the place for that Miskos3 Message 21:40, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

miskos I 100% see where you're coming from but in this case bro you're wrong. Plz I'm not being rude or dissing you but seriously guys, this wiki is built off of not speculating anything and now we want to speculate that "Alvarez arc" is just "slang" when it came from Hiro himself? This discussion really shouldn't be a discussion but for the sake of it we're doing it, It's. Not. Our. Story. If Hiro named this arc boobs and ass galore arc then guess what? That's what the name is. I feel like there is a lot hypocrisy from doing this vote. All love though to you misk just being honest. -- 22:15, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

No hard feelings~ I also see where you guys are coming from, but I disagree with the reasoning. I think Rai got my point across even better, do check out his reasoning. :0 Miskos3 Message 06:06, May 4, 2016 (UTC)

Misk I agree with where you coming from fam, those shorten arc names would sound whack but it's just not our place to say what Hiro names his arcs... in his own story. In some ways this would be a different situation if this was just a tweet or an interview where he's speaking freely, but this coming from the actual volume, with actual printed kanji, coming from Hiro. It's speculation to say we can speculate if it's slang, we should always go with what Hiro says NcduruRavens wallpaper (2) 00:24, May 4, 2016 (UTC)

Same thing I said to the anon above. ;o Miskos3 Message 06:06, May 4, 2016 (UTC)

arc name again

This discussion is closed.
Please do not edit this discussion.

Hiro from June 5th on Twitter:


Translated: I don't really know that much about voice actors who haven’t worked on FT before, but for the anime version of the Alvarez arc… if there’s some voice actors that you think totally works, i would like to know. But the original creator doesn’t have that much control over the casting so this is just as a reference.

Kanji from Vol 53 on the name: アルバレス編

My point is if you already haven't realized it is that our current arc name is wrong. At first this really was remedial so it didn't really matter much to me but after Hiro himself (if the volume didn't already prove that) tweeted the name of this arc, with all the kanji matching up, I think it's time we change it to Alvarez arc as the official name of the arc. I hate to be the one to bring it up again, but the job of a wiki is provide factual information to help visitors for information... and with that being the wrong name when we got the source from the volume, and now Hiro himself on his Twitter isn't right at all. It's no point of really discussing again cause now we have it outta Hiro's mouth literally. Idk if this should be a vote or whatever but we should change the name, adding the correct kanji. Alvarez Empire sounds more complete and cooler but it doesn't matter, if Hiro named the arc Dimaria is bae arc that's what the name would be. It's not hard to get a bot to delete a word out of the arc name on pages too, so idk if this is a support or oppose kinda thing but I Support Support - we change it to Alvarez arc cause putting Alvarez Empire arc when the actual name of the arc backed up with sourced and factual info here in front of our eyes is false information. I hope we can all just change the name

Side note: the anime might be back sooner than the last hiatus, if Hiro is already taking suggestions for voice actors in the anime adaption of the arc NcduruRavens wallpaper (2) 03:54, June 7, 2016 (UTC)

This example is no different to the last one. I don't think this tweet is changing anyone's mind right now. Let's face it, nothing's gonna change until the name gets mentioned in some sort of official capacity.--DuelMaster93 (talk) 07:37, June 7, 2016 (UTC)

Twitter has limited amount of characters............................... We're not going through this every second day jesus christ Miskos3 Message 03:56, June 7, 2016 (UTC)

Just pointing out that, that particular tweet got nowhere near the character limit. There was space for over 20 characters left, and it only would've taken up one single character to add "国" to the end of it.--DuelMaster93 (talk) 07:37, June 7, 2016 (UTC)

More Hiro Mashima confirmation on "Alvarez arc"'

So from Hiro Mashima's official twitter we have him saying "Alvarez arc" while in Volume 52's afterword he wrote "Alvarez arc" as well. I still haven't seen any confirmation on it being "Alvarez Empire arc". Is it possible we can change this already, if not discuss it? Wiki should be as close to 100% accurate! Thanks guys. SageSlayer (talk) 11:09, June 12, 2017 (UTC)
