“Fairy Tail” Anime Returns with a New Staff and New Studio in April 2014


Fairy Tail fans may need to take a flight to New York City, dance exaggeratedly on the streets of Times Square to express their excitement, and return home — or will I be the only one?

In March, the anime adaptation of Fairy Tail was reported to end with episode 175. No further information was given as to why the anime was cancelled since it received such high praise. Shortly after the sad news was reported, Mashima tweeted:

Until the time comes, I cannot say something I’ve always wanted to say, even on Twitter. Please be patient and wait until the time comes for me to announce some good news.

Due to Mashima’s tweet, many individuals speculated that there were internal problems, such as with the studios staff; others assumed that the anime was catching up too quickly to the manga, thus putting a pause on the series rather than fillers. Unfortunately, no one really knows for certain.

But as promised by Mashima and his team, the anime is returning. Weekly Shonen Magazine announced on their sixth issue that Hiro Mashima’s hit manga series, Fairy Tail, would return with its anime adaption in April on Tokyo TV.

Director Shinji Ishihira mentioned that the Fairy Tail anime would have a change in staff, such as a new character designer (Takeuchi). In addition, the series has officially switched animation studios and will no longer be animated by Satellite, but by Bridge instead. Ishihira also notes that they intend to increase the quality of the show. We’ll all have to wait and see.

But is it possible that Fairy Tail was taken off the air for nearly a year due to internal issues and switches? The answer will never be revealed, but it’s absurd if proven true. Regardless, many fans will be happy to hear that the series is finally returning. So who’s ready to see the long awaited battle between Erza Scarlet, Kagura Mikazuchi and Minerva? Let us know!


Lindo Korchi

After realizing that writing was his 'native language,' Lindo set out on creating a novel. Eventually, he realized that it would be 'impossible' to make a career out of it - discarding his dream. It wasn't until he began writing for Anime Expo's news site, Inside AX, that he would discover the multitude of routes that journalism holds. Since that time, he's reclaimed his dream and has continued to hone his skills in the art of writing. While covering conventions, he found an additional art-form that he would fall in love with -- photography. Now the journey truly begins for our young warrior.
