It was previously announced that the Fairy Tail anime would be restarting, however, it was unknown when it would begin airing again. A scan from the upcoming sixth issue of Weekly Shounen Magazine will announce that the anime will be restarting April 2014.

The scan also has an excerpt from the director of the series, Shinji Ishihira. In it he states that the staff of the anime has changed and that they are working to improve the quality of the anime. The scan shows the cast for the main characters, which all remain the same, and a few members of the new staff. The staff include:

Director: Shinji Ishihira
Series Composition: Masashi Sogo
Character Design: Shinji Takeuchi
Studio: A-1 Pictures, Bridge

If it's "restarting" then I'll be sure to follow this then! :D I've put the first Fairy Tail on hold and I'm too lazy to catch up on 100+ episodes. :/

Guess it's time to watch Fairy Tail by now

EDIT: Wait so will this start from the point it ended or from the beginning ? I'm confused.

You are not the only one here who said that although would this be considered to be a bad thing?

They ended the anime on the most epic part and now I'm happy they will continue the show from the point it ended!

Glad to hear it is coming back. Although I honestly wish they waited long so we wouldn't have to go through fillers or another hiatus right after it comes back. Still glad to hear it is coming back and glad to hear they didn't replay 'Aya Hirano' for the voice of 'Lucy'.

Thank fucking god. Soon HxH will be ending most likely, and I needed another long running anime to pick its place up.

Also, I think you need to make it more clear. Is it restarting the whole show, or from where it left off?

They will start from where it left (or so I think o.o). Anyway A-1 Pictures ehh, and they're trying to improve it?? Maybe there'll be blood xD

If it's Fairy Tail: Nakama Power which stays true to the manga without those fillers, I'll be watching it I guess.

Why not say "continuing" instead? "Restart" makes it sound like It's gonna be airing from the beggining again. Anyways I would like to catch up to watch a new series but I dropped it long ago cuz adaptation was mediocre IMO.

I'm almost positive it's continuing from where it left off. I mean, to restart the entire show would be hell for the producers. Also, they've been rerunning episodes throughout the months it's been away.

Since some of the staff has changed and the animation seems to have improved, I guess they'll make FT s2 or something.

For the people who are wondering if the series is going to start from back from episode 1 or if it will start where it left off:

I haven't watched the full series yet, but I know that when the anime ended it had "To Be Continued" at the end of the last episode.

Also I know Mashima pumped out a lot of chapters in a short period of time when the anime stopped which I'm assuming he did so that the anime would start again as soon as possible. In this case I'm almost positive "Restart" just means the anime stopped, but is now it going to start back up again not restart the entire anime.

Lastly from a business sort of view it would make no sense to redo the previous episodes. It's not like the anime is old, it started back in 2009. There is really no reason to start from the beginning again.

I didn't put "Continue" because the scan says "Restart" and I don't want to change words for the sake of changing words, plus I'm not 100% positive.

I think it'd be a really stupid move to start the series all over, I'm pretty sure they'll start where they left off. I'm not that happy, though, it wasn't that good anime, whole anime was like, bad guys appears, beats up good guys, Natsu will talk some sh*t about friendship and magically gain powers with which he'll defeat the bad guys, then it starts all over again. But I'll still be sure to watch, because I still have few characters I like and would like to know how they'll end up dying.

I highly doubt that, they don't want to frighten their audience of 5 year olds.

FUCK YES! I've been waiting for this news for so long.

I've been missing those cheesy nakama speeches, can't wait to see more. Despite people saying that A-1 butchered Fairy Tail, I personally find the anime to be far superior than the manga.

People should really learn the definition of "Reboot" and "Restart", seriously....

I hope the animation isn't lackluster and full of stills anymore.

Never liked Fairy Tail, but I'll see how it 'improved'. If they actually animate action scenes, don't censor blood (ironically they allow fanservice) and use less nakama then I'll consider my judgement.

They won't use less nakama because that is a problem with the source material, not because A-1 was doing a bad job with it. I also doubt they'll put blood in. Fairy Tail is the kind of series that is very enjoyable if you just turn your brain off and watch, hell I only watch it now for the action scenes+ost and still have a blast doing it.

Wow! Really A-1? Improve the quality? Now this is something new.

Anyways, I doubt they will start from the start. That's just impossible. Most likely they will continue the dragon festival arc.

I still haven't watched Fairy Tail but I really want to watch it. I guess I should watch it soon before this continuation or restart happens.

I'm glad that they didn't changed the seiyuus :D

Nakama powers FTW ahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!

It's about damn flipping time

Well I'll have something to look forward to next april.
The Art of Shipping is no mere game. It can be small skirmishes to huge nation size wars.
Of course some will claim their ship is the BATTLESHIP but they all do. This is why battles occur because of factions fighting each other to justify their favourite ship.
And thus SHIP to SHIP combat occurs almost anytime even now.
Beware, Threading into the Shipping battlefield will be bloody.... What are you waiting for?

What's with people thinking it'll start all over again O_o? XD

It's obviously continuing from where it left off. Mashima already said it's gonna be continued when there's enough material (which he did amazingly fast in what little time passed since the anime stopped hehe)

I noticed the guy who's doing the character designs changed to the person who did Gintama's character designs?? I wonder how that will look like. I hope it's for the better. If they can keep the movie character designs that would be awesome.

Also wondering who will voice Lucy? Still Aya?

I wonder how they'll adapt Some certain scenes if manga readers get what I mean ;) XD

I think still Aya will voice Lucy, regarding the character design well we'll just have to wait. Plus the animation's gonna improve (thank god). As for the last part I think they'll make OVA just how they did till now.

A-1 improving their anime?
and what's the meaning of "restart"? why not "continue"?
do they know what "restart" means?
Recent surveys from M**nim*list say that 100% people doesn't recommend my list as a reference, because of how unusual his taste is. Surveys also say that people shouldn't see his list 'cause it would make people rage.

Don't believe me? see it for yourself.
