FAIRY TAIL movie 2 DRAGON CRY
FAIRY TAIL movie 2 DRAGON CRY
Zash Caine (ザッシュ・ケイン Zasshu Kein), the Kingdom of Stella’s minister of state and a practitioner of black magic, infiltrate the Kingdom of Fiore to steal the Dragon Cry, a mystical staff discovered in the dragon graveyard beneath the capital city.
Fiore’s royal family recruits Natsu Dragneel and his team from the Fairy Tail guild to recover the staff, detailing that it is imbued with magical power capable of annihilating the kingdom.
The wizards pursue Zash to Stella, whose ruler, King Animus (アニムス Animusu), intends to use the staff for a ritual. Upon touching the staff, Natsu accidentally alerts Zash to their presence.
After a lengthy pursuit, Fairy Tail is defeated and detained by Zash and the kingdom’s elite military unit, the Three Stars – Swan (スワン Suwan), Doll (ドール Dōru), and Gapri (ガプリ Gapuri).
Escaping from his airborne cell, Natsu frees the others and stops Zash from using Lucy Heartfilia as a blood sacrifice for his magic.
The wizards evade Zash with the help of his reluctant accomplice, Sonya (ソーニャ Sōnya), who is also Animus’s aide and childhood friend.
Sonya warns Fairy Tail that the king’s ritual could prevent a potential magical disaster from destroying her kingdom.
Sensing that the Dragon Cry contains the malicious intent of dragons that were killed by Acnologia, Natsu refuses.
Returning to Stella, the Wizards defeat the Three Stars and retrieve the staff.
Sonya grabs the Dragon Cry and, affirming Natsu’s warning of its true nature, refuses to give the staff to Animus.
Natsu arrives and sees Sonya speaking to herself; possessing Sonya, Animus reveals himself to be a dragon who has sealed himself within her body to cheat death, appearing to her in a human guise to manipulate her.
Unable to escape Sonya’s body on his own, Animus performs the ritual to free himself using the staff’s magic but emerges in an imperfect form after Zash steals the staff for himself, seeking revenge against
Fiore for exiling him. Zash uses the staff to activate an army of artificial soldiers against Fairy Tail and tries destroying Fiore, but is disintegrated to his death by the staff’s magic energy.
In a struggle over the staff, Animus impales Natsu on one of his spikes and finishes absorbing the staff’s magic, regaining his full strength.
Natsu survives his injury, half of his body taking on the appearance of a dragon, and viciously attacks Animus; Animus recognizes Natsu as E.N.D., the “destroyer of all” before Natsu defeats him.
Returning to normal, Natsu is deeply shaken by his transformation, but Lucy comforts him, saying he still looks like himself.
Meanwhile, Sonya destroys the Dragon Cry, deactivating the soldiers and causing Animus’ body to disappear.
The broken staff reverts to its true form, a ribbon, which is blown away in the breeze.
In a post-credits scene, the ribbon is picked up by Acnologia.
In a flashback, a young Sonya loses her ribbon after being mortally wounded by Animus’ gang of dragons, whom Acnologia kills in retaliation; a dying Animus inhabits Sonya’s body during this time, enabling their survival.
In the present, Acnologia callously destroys the ribbon as Zeref observes him from afar alongside Brandish μ and Invel Yura, declaring that his battle with Natsu is imminent.
