Natsu and his friends who returned from Tenrou Island learn that the rest of their guildmates have surpassed them in magic power. They visit Poluchka for medicine to strengthen their magic, but are turned down. Wendy recognizes Porlyusica's voice and scent as those of Grandine, the dragon who raised her. After apologizing to the group, it is revealed that Poluchka is the Grandine from Edolas who is now stuck in Earthland. Following directions from Grandine, Poluchka gives Wendy written instructions for two advanced spells the dragon failed to teach her. Meanwhile, Makarov announces Gildarts' succession as master to the rest of the guild, only to find he has gone on a journey, leaving a letter of resignation behind. In the letter, Gildarts reinstates Laxus into the guild, returns mastership to Makarov, and tells him to make Fairy Tail the strongest guild in Fiore again. Romeo suggests they participate in the Grand Magic Games, an annual festival designed to determine the guilds' rankings. Despite the rest of the guilds' objections after suffering six consecutive losses in the games, Natsu and his friends eagerly accept.
