Gildarts fights Bluenote while Fried and Bickslow, who returned to Tenrou Island together with him, help Levy, Lisanna, and Pantherlily to fight Rustyrose. Meanwhile, Azuma reveals to Erza that he has used his magic, the Great Tree Arc, to absorb the magic-giving energy of the island's giant Tenrou Tree, destroying it and draining the strength of all the Fairy Tail members on the island except Erza.
In the land of Fiore, magic is everywhere. Sorcerers are like skilled tradesmen who band together in 'guilds' and take on paying assignments for non-magic wielders, like hunting monsters, retrieving lost items or running odd errands.

One day, she meets a red-headed boy who saves her from a unscrupulous wizard, and before she knows it, she's introduced to the wild and wacky band of wizards of Fairy Tail and begins the adventure of a lifetime.
