Fairy Tail is scheduled to make it's return on April 5, 2014. With that being said, the official Fairy Tail site, FairyTail-TV.com, recently showcased a brand new preview of the anime.
The preview not only highlights clips of the returned series, but it also showcases the new animation produced by Bridge and A-1 Pictures. The preview provides viewers with a look at the clear and distinctive animation quality, similar to Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess. As fans of the series watch the preview, they may feel as though the series has upgraded to a “movie quality” approach.
The increased quality has also changed the appearance of the Fairy Tail cast, providing them with a rather smooth and clean finish. Not everyone will like this change, but at least the characters are still recognizable. As for the fast-paced scenes, along with special attacks, the new animation places emphasis on the overall story's color, clarity, and fluidity. The soundtrack used in the first 50 seconds of the preview is very similar to DragonForce, excluding its upbeat approach. Fans may appreciate the studios for remaining consistent with Fairy Tail's past OST's rather than shifting to a different style.
Fairy Tail came to a close with Episode 175, airing on March 30, 2013. The series concluded with a “To Be Continued” title card. A couple of months later, it was announced that Fairy Tail would return in April with a brand new animation studio – Bridge and A-1 Pictures instead of Satellite and A-1 Pictures. Fairy Tail will relaunch right where the anime left off. In addition, the preview contains scenes that are derived directly from the manga.
Now that the series has switched animation studios, do you believe it was worth the over one year wait in order to receive a newly enhanced Fairy Tail? Or would you have preferred Fairy Tail to remain with it's original animation studio, in order to stay consistent with its past episodes? Let us know!

Fairy Tail's animation quality change discouraged me.. It seems I don't want to watch Fairy Tail anymore. Characters are sharper, just look at those sharp eyes, it doesn't match on the previous animations. And the way they talk, they're just standing there. It seems that the editors of the characters rushed in doing their works. It seems they put lesser effort on the new series.

Well, that's just IMO though. It's okay if you would bash, compliment, or critique my view on the new "version" of the Anime. It's an on-going series and I understand the "rush" editors or artists need to do, but imagine Hunter X Hunter-it got nice quality and more "movements" can be seen even they're just having a conversation.

If you were to ask me, I'd seriously prefer the old Fairy Tail rather than the new one. It feels... different whenever I watch FT 2014.
