The latest issue of the weekly Shounen Magazine by Kodansha publishing announced the return of Fairy Tail. The TV anime series will come back in April 2014 with new staff members, better quality and more value for the high expectations the fans of the manga have for its adaptation.
The sixth issue of Kodansha’s magazine announces the new staff, the cast and the month in which the first one of the new episodes will air. Changes in the staff are made so that the quality of the show will improve, says director Shinji Ishihara.
This doesn’t come as surprise as mangaka Hiro Mashima has been teasing his fans with the occasional Twitter message. He has been saying the show is not finished ever since the last episode of the previous season aired.
So… what are the changes? Main difference seen by the news article is that character designer Aoi Yamamoto is replaced by Shinji Takeuchi who is the main designer for the Gintama show.
