Why does it say restart? It will continue where the first season left off right?

Restart means "starting again." The Fairy Tail anime stopped last year. Now it's "restarting" where it stopped.

I'm digging the new manga-like char designs Very Happy That was my one wish for the restart, and I'm thrilled it's coming true. Hopefully the animation quality keeps up.

Makes no sense whatsoever, very misleading.

I guess Kodansha must be making a big contribution to the budget of this as the previous series had both terrible ratings and merchandise sales so there is no way any anime studio would take this on without someone else taking the financial risk.

Still as Kodansha's 2nd best selling manga (and that sums up just how terrible most of their manga are doing doesn't it) they must be getting desperate.

Fairy Tail sales by year

2009 - 2,886,942
2010 - 5,739,526
2011 - 4,701,596
2012 - 4,128,665
4013 - 3,790,151

I guess we will see if the anime relaunch can revitalise the manga sales in a year.

My guess is not.

Shogakukan's has been doing the same lately with multiple series which have apart from Magi all unfortunately flopped both in sales and increasing manga sales.


So the only question left is will this be a full year daytime anime or a short late night series.

It only makes no sense and is misleading if you haven't been following. Why end it with "To be continued," then start showing reruns, along with saying "the anime isn't over," and then "restart" the anime from the beginning when they just aired reruns?

Would you have preferred the word "Relaunch?"(if so, that was stated in the article)

Anyway, the title has been changed. I'm very confused that someone didn't understand, but I apologize if there was any confusion on the reader's side as well. We had used the word "relaunch" for a similar article, so I decided not to use that word.

As much as it pains me to say this, I highly doubt Rave will ever get a remake. They won't jump into making a series that may not gain them much profit. Rave is nowhere as popular as it was during its prime time.

As for the news, glad to hear that. Looking forward to the Spring season, a lot of awesome anime will appear, it seems :3

Its alright(on my behalf). The article had enough info on what was clearly going to happen.
