I really like 2014 art-style but the animation has only gotten worse, the magic circles are gone and I feel like the battles aren't as great as they used to be. I felt like the original paid attention to details, though I really like 2014 art-style, I'll have to say the orignial caught my attention more than the new style.

Stopped watching after the animation started changing I missed how my waifu Lucy originally looked :(

I honestly can’t understand why you guys miss the old animation. I was fine with it, sure, but once the new animation was out I was thrilled. The fight scenes, and character animation, everything is so much smoother and well animated than the old animation.

please help what's the difference and what's the order of they are the same continuity. like when does it come in if ever and why was it changed

To be honest, I don't MIND the new animation (although I prefer the old one) but what I do mind is the way all the colour has been paled to the point that half the characters' faces aren't coloured at all
XTankiX Flare (2 months ago)
I like the new one, matches the manga.
Liana · (2 months ago)
I'm not trying to be rude but I like the 2014 art style to be honest and stop complaining about the animators and how the new art style and the series changed! I know you guys will probably comment on me like "original is better you have no life" then your heartless to my opinion and I don't care whether they have magic circle and have weird looking effects or not! I'm just glad they improved the art style and I liked the original but I just like the 2014 art style more and say whatever you want to me I'm used to haters and you guys don't know my past and my prescence but I just liked they continuedl

In the 2014 art style they look more mature and older
Just another Otaku (3 months ago)
I actually like both and I don't mind that Hiro Mashima wanted to change the art style because he wanted to look like the manga. In the end Fairy Tail is Fairy Tail :)
I just made it through the last episode of fairytail aka Tartorus arc. The new style is nice but the shades in the sides of the screen is just.. idk it was just pissing me off

I like the new animation, but the colors in the old is better.

Wtf did they do to Erza
Light House (6 months ago)
I hated the new art style at first but after a while I got used to it and I actually liked it better than the old cause the characters look more badass. In terms of animation, it's crap in the 2014 version . But at least it improved on the tartaros arc
Ginger Blender (6 months ago)
why did they change Ultears and Meredys eye colors? So annoying >.>

lucy use to be way much stronger and had a unique personality and ezra changed so much too, ezra used to be the prince in that play and now she's more feminine and looks eh
Johann Kassai (8 months ago)
why does everyone have to modernize? I know the show changed its art style to stay true to the manga, but they don't have to change the colors, but i guess its more fluid to look to, but i'm interested if they are gonna change it because the tartaros arc is over, and fairytail will be coming back, will the show be fun if the colors are simply bland? Am I bad at reviews, this review sucks. Bye hahahahahah
Ashley S (9 months ago)
I hope the old animation returns in season 8.
Eddie Y (8 months ago)
Hope they go back to Satelight studio for Fariy Tail's upcoming series too.
Girem (9 months ago)
Lmao if you think this isn't an improvement, you don't have eyes. The only thing that I miss is a bit more color and Natsu's hair, but the color palate is meant to be darker for these arcs. Especially the Tartaros chapters.
arafath islam (9 months ago)
original was better indeed

BARTOL CHERRY (1 year ago)
erza look like emo .. wtf that fairy tail 201
Jk8Z A.K.A Nitro-Nick (1 year ago)
I'm not too bothered by the style, it's more about the lack of animation, either reactions, background characters, talking and FPS.
Caster for life (1 year ago)
People that say the new animation was better than the 2009 one are blind as fuck. 2009 was consistent and good for a long running. The 2014 animation was so poor
icecream hero (1 year ago)

The Dragon Mage (1 year ago)
i don't understand why people hate the new animation . the old one had poor quality and it looked bad . even in the old animation the characters did not look as strong as they were in the manga . that's my oppenion

The new ones look like cheap rip offs.
Blini cat (1 year ago)
I love the new animation. I hate anime with loud, bright and vibrant colors. The only reason I stuck with original was to enjoy the different arcs (My favorite arc from original was the Oracion Seis/Cait Shelter one though it had bad animation).
Manaka-chan (1 year ago)
Like we get hooked on the old style then all of a sudden it changes

YoongiIsMyDaddy (1 year ago)
I actually like the new style because the old looked a lot like One Piece's style. Anyways, it's my opinion.
YoongiIsMyDaddy (1 year ago)
I actually like the new style
Gaster Blaster (1 year ago)
Personally I hate the new animation. The colors are so so so crummy. They're expressions just aren't the same. The older animation man whenever I saw Natsu's face get angry I just paused cause I just enjoyed seeing the design of showed emotion and it sent chills. However this 2014 had no effect on me what so ever. They're faces don't give me the excitement. Whenever I see there powers come out I simply don't get the urge anymore. I LOVED there fight scenes back in 2009 it was amazing. It ran well, no choppy stops, and it felt like characters really had PUNCH to their fights. However I feel like 2014 failed miserably with this. Most fights consisted of talking and minor cuts of fights. Which I hated . Sometimes they talked more than they actually fought. They're fights where absolute trash. My goodness most of the time when they fought and was very slow VERY slow and somewhat choppy. They're was in my opinion no real emotions. I just didn't get the vibes. And the colors only ruined it. So dull so lifeless so boring. It took a long time for me to finish the anime where it is. And I can say with absolute honesty that it was poor.
Potato_Chii (1 year ago)
Sigh....I miss the old style Fairy Tail had. The new style just doesn't seem to...y'know, hold the same charm that Fairy Tail had.
Allstar (1 year ago)
Personally i dont think the new animation is bad (at least design wise) it would of been better if they had better color
Sunriser (1 year ago)
Happy just looks weird after this change. His face is too round
Sunriser (1 year ago)
It just seems like they smoothed out all the lines. Most noticeable on happy and carla
Tyrone Biggum (1 year ago)
I stopped watching the new one because of its god fcking awful animation. literally when the 2 dragons fought it was 2 stationary images being dragged back and forth together. Actually the worst animation i have ever seen on one of the most important sections of fairy tail. Igneel fighting was like watching a stop motion fight but the characters dont change shape
John Smith (1 year ago)
Not even a contest. Original is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better. Seriously... this is a real shot from episode 48... http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/3207/9921/original.jpg Even if I'd photoshopped it to look worse I couldn't have come up with something that horrible. It even makes Episode 6 of Dragonball Super look well drawn.
John Smith (1 year ago)
"less detail" Dude... they are missing PARTS of themselves. Eyeys are stuck in random places. Gray is randomly 6 inches taller. Lucy's head is attached to her left shoulder. Natsu's face looks like it went through a meat grinder. Lucy's hands are 3 inches from wrist to finger tip. Happy's left eye is twice the size of his right and... god I can't go on. It's not even a distant shot. It's not even a full body shot. This looks likes someone's first day with a "How to draw manga" book.
Just Away (1 year ago)
lol, yeah that's a bad shot. But I still prefer the new style since they look more mature and it's closer to the manga... Also, there's always less detail to characters when they're further away in the shot like the one you posted.
Well the hair styles are different of what you look and think.
Zemo (2 years ago)
The new version is way better you dumbasses I think u guys are looking at things throughout Ur damn anus that's why good things look bad and bad things look good
Potato_Chii (1 year ago)
Or, ooorr, and hear me out on this....! We simply like the Old version better.
John Smith (1 year ago)
I took the screenshot myself... watch the fucking episode.. lol. It's from episode 48.

Matthew Dunkley (2 years ago)
The 2014 series sucks, so many cuts and short lived fights very choppy not fluid like it used to be they clearly did it on a smaller budget and much worse
Poison (2 years ago)
So the 2009 and 2014 release is the same plot? Only difference is that the animations have been "improved?
Forty7even (2 years ago)
2009 has a 175 episodes which stopped airing cause the anime basically almost caught to the manga, the 2014 is a continuation. Its not a different version, it just carries on from where it left off.
geo k (2 years ago)
Fairy tail 2014 is sooooooo SHIT . 1) art stile 2)colors 3)story 4)SOUNDTRACKS 5)its so ecchi that loses the point, dont get me wrong the first one had some too but 2014 is THE STORY.Its like it has less story and more shipments and fanservise. I dont know what is wrong with the writter but this is ridiculous!
Kaylyn Fraser (2 years ago)
I honestly love this! It shows the improvement!
SEA-MASTER (2 years ago)
no the original is way better

does anyone know when Fairytail's Animation Studio will chnage?
d3fod (2 years ago)
The new art is better but the first animation is way better i mean have u seen the fights in 2014 they are so choppy animation
PuriNTomO (2 years ago)
If you are wondering why they changed the style, it's because of how Hiro Mashima wanted the characters to look more like their manga characters instead of the original anime style. SO this makes Anime Fairy Tail correspond with their Manga characters more, so it kinda is better and you still get the full experience in the anime like in the Manga
Xinchura (2 years ago)
+The Otaku The Writer Agreed! I love the manga so much and was disappointed with the original anime's art style when I first saw the preview of it. It didn't feel like it fit FT. I didn't like the vibrant bright colors - I felt like it was too much, or at least I didn't feel like they did a good job utilizing it. I'm very impressed with the 2014 art style because I feel like it really follows the manga and how Hiro wanted it depicted. (Although, I can agree that seeing the eye overlapping the hair is one very big flaw that started to bother me since I noticed it when I read comments, especially in a close up scene). I'm hoping that when they make the new season for FT, they'll be able to make some improvement changes - but so far, so good to me.
PuriNTomO (2 years ago)
Also, fairy tail isn't always about vibrant colors and playfulness (though most times I question that myself) it's also serious and may rely on friendship too much...but yeah, Fairy Tail is suppose to be fun while being serious, also, you should judge the content of the Anime if it's like the Manga, otherwise, it wouldn't be the same.
George Arizaga (2 years ago)
I liked the original art style more because it was so much more bright and colorful.
Kayzarous (1 year ago)
I like the new animation because it was more gritty and dark looking. To me it Went well with the Tartarus arc demon theme. Like I guess fairy tail was supposed to be colorful and pretty but I just like the change to dark style when stuff got more dark. Yes there might not have been much more detail but I barely even watch stuff in 480p to care about that lol.
I am the only one that LOVE the 2014 FT from the first episode?
John Smith (1 year ago)
Probably. I'm still trying to slog through 2014. Taking me months to watch it. I frankly don't know if I'm going to finish it or not. It's fucking horribly and is 75% filler.
Tus Gurl (2 years ago)
And what happen to the magical circles?!?!?
Tus Gurl (2 years ago)
But I fell like it should of been like that from the beginning
Tus Gurl (2 years ago)
2014 is WAY better in my opinion
John Smith (1 year ago)
http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/3207/9921/original.jpg ...right... NOT.
SomeguycalledSmithy (2 years ago)
I actually hate, and I mean hate the original now. The vibrant colors I like, but everything else to me actually makes makes me gag most of the time. In the 2014 anime Natsu looks really good, same with lots of the other characters, their faces and body features have tuns of detail, but in the original their everything seems very rounded and has less detail. I'm ok that people like the original style more and I'm not trying to change anyone's opinion, but I'm actually worried. At this point I'm hoping that when the 2017 series starts, the style is kept the same, maybe adding a bit more color, but keeping everything else the same.
John Smith (1 year ago)
I HATE the new jJvia. They changed her from something unique to just another generic big titted anime slut.
SomeguycalledSmithy (2 years ago)
+Georgia Kyranis she seems much younger now. Her old design made her look older than she really was. When she was first introduced she was meant to be around 17-18 years old, but she looked like she was in her mid 20's. She also looks more cheerful now and is on par with Wendy on how adorable she looks. Speaking of Wendy, that's another design that had major changes. Now she looks like a 11-13 year old girl and not child that escaped from pre school. I could honestly sit here all day listing how much better the character designs and how the new art style made them look better.
Georgia Kyranis (2 years ago)
+Smithlinkiller I LOVE THE NEW JUVIA DESIGN!!! I feel like her features are so much more defined and pretty
SomeguycalledSmithy (2 years ago)
Ok so maybe I was a little too harsh, I was more or less in blind rage when commenting the first time. I have no major problems about the original style other than the character models. In 2014 the characters look very good (apparently people don't like how Gray looks, but I've noticed the least amount change with him) Juvia being one of the big examples. The original has a very cartoony feel to it which it nice, but for the parts of the anime right now, that style would longer fit and feel very out of place with the dark atmosphere.
lgndz (2 years ago)
I like 2014 more than 'Original'
Dren Reinhardt (2 years ago)
originals were movie quality good but the one we see now is complete shit.
John Smith (1 year ago)
http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/3207/9921/original.jpg Defend that as "good" artwork. I fucking dare ya. That's straight from episode 48.
MalikProductions Max (2 years ago)
Lucy did not transition well in 2014
Kitty Kat (2 years ago)
I'm so pissed. The 2014 version took Gray and fucked him up, in my opinion. I mean, Gray is still hot, but he looked better in the original...
Kitty Kat (2 years ago)
Yeah xD
Georgia Kyranis (2 years ago)
+Kitty Kat I think the only ones that are better are Juvia and maybe Wendy cuz I actually like her new shade
Kitty Kat (2 years ago)
Not to mention almost all of their hair are different shades, you can see the eyes through the hair, the style for the girls' eyes changed a bit, and yeah.
xXShizukaKunXx (2 years ago)
2014 color is so relaxing...
Napoleon Contreras (2 years ago)
I hate how the eyes overlap the hair and when their eyes are covered it shows it, even if the hair is covering it
yarin Lu (2 years ago)
I'm getting HXH 99 vs. HXH 2011 vibes from this... fairy tail before break was so magicall, livefull, colorfull. I was so excited to continue the amime from ep 175. the moment I saw the new ver was really sad to me. however hxh 2011 is great compared to FT 2014 and thats the difference in my feelings(I still prefer oldschool drawing like hxh 99 lol).with that being said... to the FT Manga! here I go!
Wolf Revenant (2 years ago)
Old is much better. No more transparent hair which is my god it's everywhere in the anime world. Fairy Tail had a special good quality art before. Plus there are no magic circles. The eyes became so dull and of course, boobs have gotten unrealistically huge. The characters chins are pointy/ -They made Natsu look dragon-like which takes away his personality with the new look. His eyes look very one piece like. I hate his new hair style too. -Lucy looks like just another blond-haired anime women we see all the time. Her new hairstyle is crap too. -Gray looks alright. I'm just not a fan of his pointy chin. -Erza looks alright. She's just overdone like Lucy. Remove the hair that's covering her eye and make her not transparent and it'll be okay. Her new armor color looks much better I admit.
Grace Wise (2 years ago)
The difference is obvious, but honestly I can't decide which one I like more. I see why people don't like the newer one, in the beginning the characters designs are really crappy but it gets a lot better as it goes on. The only thing I don't really like is how the hair looks so dull on the females for the newest art style. Other than that both of them are good.
Vali-Lucifer (2 years ago)
It seems like theres a light shadow in the new versions. Doesnt bother me either way but i guess you can tell the difference
Lindsay Mire (2 years ago)
having watched this season yet, but once I finish the original I will watch this and then come back and rant about it! I mean I see the differences already! there hair is flat and has no volume, and it's color is off and so is there figures and facial features. They look awkward in there stances. I want spoilers so please tell me what this weird season is about.
Jada Franklin (2 years ago)
I skipped a lot of things so sorry if not everything happens at once. There's waaay more trust me. But I'm not so great at summarize this.
Jada Franklin (2 years ago)
Yeah Fairy Tail's coming back in like 2017.
Jada Franklin (2 years ago)
+Lindsay Mire okay so the Grand Magic Games arc finishes and then some dragon gate is unleashed yada yada Dragons pop out they try to fight them. Future Lucy dies and her past self cries over her. Main boss is Rouge. AND A COOL THEME SONG! Umm Yukino and Lucy close the dragon gate summoning all their celestial spirits. I don't really remember the rest of the arc. THEN THERES A FILLER ARC WITH ECLIPSE CELESTIAL SPIRITS THAT ACTUALLY LOOK PRETTY AWESOME! Just never EVER look up eclipse Cancer vs. Gray. It's ....just never speak of it. Gray gets into the gayest situations. But here's an important spoiler: Aquarius dies! Lucy breaks her key to summon the Celestial Spirit King and defeat Tartarus. A demon guild or something. Igneel straight up dies and Natsu finds out Igneel was inside him all along. *I'm not really good with these things so I might have skipped details* But the last episode of the 2014 episodes was a little after the Tartarus arc the guild disbanded a bit. It's coming back
Lindsay Mire (2 years ago)
+Jada Franklin yup! I need to know what im coming into
Jada Franklin (2 years ago)
Are you sure you still want spoilers?
snowy bear13 (2 years ago)
The original art style will always be better than the 2014 one. Hopefully when fairy tail comes back from it's second hiatus they'll improve the animation
Utter Otter CHOICE (2 years ago)
Ugh its just so weak compared to the original, I hate it
Dada B (2 years ago)
i want to start vewing the anime but i dont understand is fairy tail 2014 a remake of fairy tail or fairy tail 2014 is the continuation of fairy tail?????
Dada B (2 years ago)
ok thanks
viggyvodka (2 years ago)
+Daniel Barranco It's a continuation, start by watching the Fairy Tail which came out in 2009, and then watch the 2014 one once you've watched the original 175 episodes. FYI in my opinion the 2014 anime is a lackluster continuation, with a switch in animation studios which only made everything (art, soundtrack, animation) worse. Enjoy the original 175 episodes though, they were great
iRoXaR (2 years ago)
When u see when hair is on their eyes, the eyes you can see them lol
Isabella Mae (2 years ago)
I like the original better heh
Spidey Fan (2 years ago)
what bothered me is the color it gets more gray natsus hair dosent even look pink anymore
Chocolate5tar (2 years ago)
Yeah, I agree
jessie (2 years ago)
am I the only one who thinks it looks better on some characters, I like how they changed Lucy except for her eyes, those were nice, and I like how they made Ezra's hair look softer, even tho it's not as shiny as before. Y'all complaining that fairy tail is bad now just because of the animation difference, please grow up, I agree some battles lack animation but you all just focus on the bad animation, all the comments are basically complaints, which is extremely sad and petty.
jessie (2 years ago)
+viggyvodka I honestly think the music was a little better in 2014 because of certain songs (like strike-back which is probably the most popular fairy tail op) and the fights really didn't change, fairy tail always wins in the end
viggyvodka (2 years ago)
+jessie melendez Yea I see what you mean, and I basically did drop it, only watched important fights and stuff. But if all these people are discontent with the 2014 anime, it obviously means that there are quality issues with the show. It's just hard to watch the new anime because it just doesn't have the same music, art, or even direction when it comes to fights and important scenes. Atleast with the 2014 anime now ended let's hope the new one includes the old music and great animation all around.
jessie (2 years ago)
+viggyvodka that's extremely true, but what I'm saying is if you don't like the 2014 animation then either drop the anime or stop bitching about it, because half of the comments here are about people complaining and it's annoying
viggyvodka (2 years ago)
+jessie melendez Easier said then done, most people including myself loved the original 175 episodes. I still love Fairy Tail, but I hate what the 2014 anime made it become, it's hard to drop a show which you get so invested in, you know what I mean?
jessie (2 years ago)
overall can y'all stop bitching and watch the anime? and if your to picky that you say "the animation is horrific I can't enjoy the anime!!" then drop it and stop complaining.
