Fairy Tail episode 23 (anime adaption)
Fairy Tail chapter 51 is the third bathing scene in the Fairy Tail manga series as well as the 3rd overall bathing scene in the Fairy Tail franchise.
After retreating from a battle against the members of Phantom Lord, Erza Scarlet is seen having a Shower back at Fairy Tail in the guilds shower room. In the shower she thinks to herself of how impossible the battle they are in because of the guild masters defeat and the guilds strongest mages absences and punches the wall in anger thinking that she should have been with the master in battle. While still in the shower, she and the rest of the members of Fairy Tail feel the ground moving.
Post Scene Events
When everybody is outside seeing that Phantom Lord is going to destroy Fairy Tail with a giant laser, Erza is seen along them wearing only in a Towel where she tells everybody to get back as the chapter ends.
Continued into the next chapter titled "15 Minutes" (15分), Erza Scarlet who is still in a towel after her shower charges toward the mobile Phantom Lord and drops her towel and quickly exquips in armor to try and stop the laser that was being fired from hitting the Fairy Tail guild.
This shower scene was adapted in the 23rd episode of the anime. The changes made in the anime version was the addition of lots of steam covering Erza's body. The shower stall which was made out of wood in this scene was changed to stone. All of the post scene events were present in the same episode rather than how Erza's towel scene went into another chapter. The anime adaption also reveals that Erza's towel is purple.
