[New][April 2014] Fairy Tail 2014 (Fairy Tail Season 2)

Summary: This is the continuation of the first season of Fairy Tail. Picking up, right where they left off.

First Impression: At first, it seemed like they have a slightly different animation team on this. Just some fringe things niggling at the back of my brain. I adapt to graphical shifts too fast to notice or care, but maybe it will bug someone else? Or it might just be my imagination.

First Opinion: This is Fairy Tale. ... That's about it. They start off strong with a little slap in the face of ... future premonition? Possibility? Parallel universe again? The hell if I know, and you probably won't either until they tell you. (or maybe if the manga's ahead, which it likely is, if you read that). I liked Fairy Tale, and this is exactly the continuation of it. Kind of hard to go wrong from there. This isn't a sequel, it's a second season. Sequels are made to pump out more money, Second Seasons come into being to finish the story.

Having said all that, I really got a nostalgia trip during the show when they had a sign with Plu (I have no idea how to spell his name) on it. No clue what relevance it was, even in context, but it reminded me that the old show Rave Master also featured him, and I one day looked it up and found out its a character the creator uses across several of his works. After that, my usual brain fade kicks in and it would be foolish of me to continue saying[typing technically] anything after that, I'd just be putting my foot in my mouth[or...on...the...keyboard...?] and making myself sound stupid by saying something false. Interested? Watched that old show? Look it up. You may find something you like.
