Why August used that spell?

    I saw someone post he used it because of Acnologia to try and kill him.

    Then someone say that this is false, he first tried to use it before Acnologia returned to the battlefield.

    But if you remember, August said it would wipe out the "Entire country." Which Acnologia never left. He was always in the radius of August's spell, just coz we never knew where he was does not mean the spell would not have affected him.

    Then again, his power MAY have protected him. I'm never one to say just being strong protects you from everything. But this spell is old, Acnologia SHOULD know about it. The fact of the matter is, if it was effecting Acnologia i think Hiro would have shown it to us. Just like he did when Face affected him.

    In short, August's main attempt with that spell may have been to kill Acnologia, but in the end, it probably would have failed.

    I think he might have just been ragequitting and trying to kill Zeref, Natsu, Acno, Gildartz and Cana basically whoever he can because his daddy didn't love him.

    He wanted to serve Zeref but didn't want to hurt his mother, so he decided to off himself.

    Or at least that what I read somewhere else

    had to justify that whole....only his mother can stop him. he was basically beat and was just resorting to a suicide last resort, but mommy came into view.

    it's like using solemn judgment playing yugioh. you pay the price first before the effect take hold. then seeing mavis is like 7 tools of the bandit. this was chained. but august already paid the price even though the spell didn't activate...so he dies.....lol.

    All these people saying August was beat. :facepalm

    Omfg... Show me a single scratch on his body please. Oh you can't? That's because Gildarts punch had next to no effect. :zaru

    August did that stupid suicide move because it was the only way for him to go. Without it he would have destroyed FT and no one would have been able to do anything because the only two people that may have been able to do it have their hands full with Zeref. :zaru

    It made him cough up blood. It was nothing substantial but he definitely took damage.

    and considering that was pretty much Gildarts' best/only shot...

    Superficial damage at most. August was completely fine and still at 100% after the attack.

    Hiro had no way to take August out so he had himself do it. If he did not he would have had to pull a Bleach and just have Zeref or Acno aka another big villain take him out for no god damn good reason other than just coz. Just like he did when he had Brain take out Cobra before he killed Natsu because (I want a real DS even though you were clearly the stronger out of the two and already a loyal comrade that i don't have to mind control over to my side.)

    Acno could have easily killed August.Mavis could have released FH and defeated him.There were many ways August could have gone down.

    look how much shit you talk

    everyone believed Gildarts had defeated August, and Hiro could have gone that way, we have seen this often enough.

    He just decided that he rather wants August to die a somewhat edgy suicide :mlpshrug

    So was he going to destroy the country like an actual explosion or actually melt it?

    Was the country he was going to destroy Ishgar or just Fiore? I've been kind of wondering the context here since I don't read this shit on a regular basis.

    Probably just Fiore, sadly he never got that far into the spell but i'm guessing it would be like a nuke going off without... the nuke actually going off. Aka, after effect. The country would still be there, it would just be a wasteland unable to inhabit life.

    August wasn't beat. Gildarts attack had zero affect on him

    August never coughed up blood.

    let me see. they figured out his magic, and he can't copy cana's and gildart's last attack and was actually taking damage...so he resorts to a suicide attack. and yes, he had blood and he knew he was beat which is why he resorted to a suicide move.....why would a guy not beat resort to a suicide move. in any case, this chapter was nothing more than a retcon to the "only his mother can stop him", he was already beat last chapter.

    Figuring out his magic doesn't mean anything since that doesn't stop him from using said magic...hence Ars Magia.

    Gildarts' last attack couldn't be used more than once because it broke literally right after. That was their best and only shot and it did superficial damage.

    They were ants to August even with all the CIS in the world helping them. The reason is simple

    figuring out his magic makes a difference. august cannot defend from the attacks other than dodge or tank. one can speculate as to how many times he can tank magics he cannot defend or copy, but RESORTING to a suicide spell, the so called, said magic, is telling that he may not be able to to tank it much more. he took damage. though gildart's artificial arm broke, that doesn't mean that is the only means of attack he can do, and there is still cana's magic that as gildarts pointed out, august continues to dodge. but back to the point.....august resorted to a suicide move from the so called "superficial damage"....why? because he was beat. and to think that that was "their best and only shot" is silly given the history of this manga and arc.

    People truly are ignorant. August was going to use Ars-Margia before Gildarts ever showed up.



    He didn't use it against Gildarts because he had no options left, he used it because he always planned on using it. The best Gildarts could do to August was give him a bloody nose. His arm was trashed after that meaning he had no options left that could even harm August let alone defeat him. And take the Cana's cards nonsense out of here. If the most he received from Gildarts' best was a bloody nose then Cana's cards aren't doing shit to him.

    They were sitting ducks for him, but Hiro, being the hack that he is, had him suicide because logical ways to oust his villains consistently allude him.

    Pretty sure the guy is still a virgin with the whole being a momma's boy and everything

    Really this is the correct answer. Hiro made August too OP to the point where he couldn't think of a way to bullshit his defeat even with Nakama power.

    So he just took Lacrade's backstory and inserted it into August and then had him kill himself the moment enough chapters were wasted.
