So only four more episodes? That's very disappointing. Fairy tail is one of my favorite shows. Its sad to see it end half way through its current story arc.

What the shit, March 30th? That soon? Can Grand Magic Games even be wrapped up by then? That sucks, there goes one of my long-running Sunday anime. At least there's still Uchuu Kyoudai and Hunter x Hunter.


Nope, it can't. Its still going on in the manga.

So, this is supposed to be some sort of pause?
It would be sad if they ended it just like that, especially for people, unlike myself, who don't like reading manga..

That's part of the good news.

Think like this:

How many battle shonen have ended with a few episodes of anime original or at the end of a big/important arc that can be slightly used as a ending.

Now think how many ended mid-arc, at the end of a huge cliffhanger chapter.

Helpful Hint: 0%

Whaaaat was my reaction.
But i'm actually glad that it's ending.
Even though i love shounen, i don't like it when there's to many episodes.
(One Piece being the only exeption. Don't want it to end.)

I think it's the best solution since the anime is way to close to the manga... In fact, they should have done this before starting the filler arc...
Still, it won't be the same, watching FT every week for about 2 years, I'll need some time to get used to it xP

How can you be happy when it's ending in the middle of an arc.For the ending they are going to make some bullshit up.

The episode titles are already out.
Its ending on a cliffhanger episode, the same one the manga did before it went on a 2 week "hiatus".

I put Fairy Tale on hold a while ago and had been planning on catching up soon, this is a little disappointing considering I found it to be at the very least decent.

I wonder how they're going to end the anime, when the arc (in the manga) hasn't even ended yet. Make up their own ending?

I'm kind of sad to hear this, since I just caught up with the anime. But I agree that the animation for FT has seen better days.

Edit: Never mind. lol Cliffhanger then.

Also, I don't think Fairy Tail's ratings/sales were a problem at all; in fact I was under the impression that it had good ratings/sales.


You don't think the ratings were a problem simply because you were ignorant of them?

http://www.geocities.jp/animesityouritu/2012a.html

Early 2012, it was averaging about 2%

http://www.geocities.jp/animesityouritu/2012b.html

Yet by the end of 2012, it had fallen down to 1% ratings. And its probably even lower now.

To give a comparison, Bleach was averaging 1.5% ratings when it got canned.

The movie bombing didn't help either.


Ok but after looking through all that by looking at the ratings where the series got canceled then compare it to the rating of everything else you see that the ratings are pretty average so really all but like 5 or 6 anime in japan should be canceled because they have a really shit rating....seems to me anime just isn't as popular as it use to be. Also you might argue well they want to start a new series because that is be popular and make them money.......to that i say false hardly any newly started series got better rating than like 1.5 a lot were even worse that FT so i really don't see japans logic! plus FT manga outsells most all of those anime in the list.

yup, used to be a HUGE fan. can't deny that part of my life, but sometime around 2010 i realized how bad it was and how much worse it was getting. especially after starting one piece around that time.
i picked up the manga where the anime left off, but i'm just reading it for completions sake.

switch from a-1 pls when it comes back.

*if

Seems like the anime adaptation of Fairy Tail was in the wrong hands from the very beginning. This same studio is currently fucking up Magi. I usually just stuck to the FT manga, but I watched the anime on several occasions to see the battles, and the anime seemed quite poor. Re-used animations + still frames, pointless censoring (Edolas Lucy WTF), those god-awful magic circles, lack of blood, ect. So, IF the anime does get a sequel, I'd also want it to be animated by another studio.

I kinda feel bad for anime-only watchers though. But One Piece, Hunter x Hunter and Gintama are still going strong, so at least they can watch superior currently airing shounen.

Why would you even Compare One Piece to this? It has 7-8 times the ratings that Fairy Tail has.

And bringing up the ratings is a totally viable argument, since they don't make anime out of the kindness of their hearts. If they are losing sponsors due to the lack of people watching that timeslot, they will remove the show and add something with more potential to make money.

TV ratings shouldn't matter much as the anime's bigger goal was to advertise the manga (which has been doing very well). Sad to see it go and I can't see how they'll even manage to give it a good ending since we're smack in the middle of some important things. ):

That's completely fine, but it's ratings are a fact. And it's a fact that it's sold the most out of like any manga, and that it's two latest movies have broken records for the money they make. Which is why One Piece is not getting cancelled, Bleach did get cancelled, and Fairy Tail is getting cancelled.

You are pretty new to this right.

Nope, it depends on the series, what audience and what source of revenue it has. Most of the 1 - 2% rating you see go to late night anime 12 am+ which could care less about ratings because they depend of disc sales or goes to early morning anime 6 am+ BUT in this case while could care less about disc sales, those ratings are normal for those timeslots, so no problem for them.

For morning 8- 11 am ratings matter, just as they do for evening-night anime.

Lots of you are on denial, ratings were awful, no question about it, and surely the reason it got canceled.

Fairy Tail has been decreasing steadily decreasing in quality for a long time now. Honestly I think it's time a different anime take up that slot.


I am disappointed and mad that they are canceling it, but I have to agree with you. In the beginning the quality of Fairy Tail was TOP NOTCH, the animation, character development, EVERYTHING. But after they defeated Laxus I did notice the show go on a steady decline with cheesy lines about friendship that made me facepalm

OMG......... the series doesn't start till shortly after that. i know 1p is slow to begin with, but once they hit the grand line, it's in a different league. the storyline picks up immensely.

trust me, give it another shot. 1p gets better the more you watch it.
