I think it is really really funny when kids complain that the anime lacks blood when the manga itself has only 2 or 3 drops of it; can't help but laugh!

The first part of Fairy Tail was done pretty well! They don't have a need to remake it from scratch - that would be a huge waste of time, money, and resources IMHO.

I think they should continue from where they left off, and if the animation style is too different, then probably start from the Grand Tournament arc again.

Unless it's like FMA where the series ended using a different route than the original manga, there's not really a reason to remake this from episode 1.

why would they ever start from the begginng? they just finished the show last year in the middle of the grand tournament arc . they left off in the spot of the arc for that reason . i would be shocked if they started at episode 1 . show only started 5 years ago.

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.


Excellent. Yeah it certainly wouldn't make any sense for them to completely restart it, from a business point of view.
Fingers crossed they continue from Ep 176.

Wait... Is this going to be like FMAB, a superior remake to the original Fairy Tail starting back at episode 1 or will we just be getting episode 176 like Code Geass R2?


Can't speak for Geass, but this is a continuation, meaning episode 176.

Oh, boy...Why?


Because enough people wanted it and investors seem to think its worth it.

It's still a step in the wrong way.


In your opinion. Which matters very little in the end

Because YOU dislike it? That's silly. I get you want to hate on the series but at least have something clever or witty to say instead of "Ugh why".

I mean, I hate the crap out of Sword Art Online, but I admit that it would be foolish NOT to make a second season (which they are) due to how popular it is.


If you're gonna compare, at least do it right. SAO had brilliant sales, which is what factors for a shorter series. FT needs ratings, which it did even more horribly than Bleach.
