Lawl, I immediately thought Ultear will give up her life to save Gray. That, or he'S actually an ice clone :P
It's an inappropriate way to die for an MC. It's okay if Mashima is culling the characters as most of them don't get any paneltime or are insignificant anyway but this doesn't seem right. Maybe we're being trolled again. XD
It really isn't a good way to die for an MC even if his own story has been resolved.
