Plot

Nanami was just a normal high school girl down on her luck until a stranger’s lips marked her as the new Land God and turned her world upside down. Now, she’s figuring out the duties of a deity with the help of Tomoe, a reformed fox demon who reluctantly becomes her familiar in a contract sealed with a kiss. The new responsibilities—and boys—are a lot to handle, like the crow demon masquerading as a gorgeous pop idol and the adorable snake spirit who’s chosen the newly minted god to be his bride. As the headstrong Tomoe tries to whip her into shape, Nanami finds that love just might have cute, pointed fox ears. With romance in the air, will the human deity be able to prove herself worthy of her new title?

Hey Fairy Tail fans! I just noticed the Crunchyroll article on Fairy Tail's return. Weekly Shonen Magazine announced that the anime is coming in April 2014.

New Changes

The cast of VAs are the same. However, we have a new character designer replacing Aoi Yamamoto, Takeuchi. Bridge is replacing Satelight for animating the anime series. I'm hoping Fairy Tail gets major improvements in its animation and drawing style.

Personal Comments

To be honest, I thought it needed another year break because the manga hasn't gotten enough space. It seems like the anime will probably face more fillers. I don't mind fillers, but it has to be better than the Key of the Starry Sky arc. Did you guys and gals enjoy that huge filler arc? I believe viewership for the anime dipped down because of that filler arc.
