While traveling home with grumbling bellies, the team stumbles upon a deserted village with lots of yummy grub lying around, but Erza's gut tells her something's up. While she investigates, the boys chow on a forest full of odd fungus.

The exam participants arrive at Sirius Island, Fairy Tail's sacred ground, where they each take one of eight routes that will lead to the next stage of the exam.
