So how is the anime doing? I remember watching a few of the earlier chapters but the pacing and the cheesy anime circles and the weird tone change (feels like a teen manga was turned into a kids anime) turned me off a bit.

Do they still spam 'stock footage' attacks all day? Is the animation any better?

I'm not sure how long it's been since we've seen any stock footage, but it's maybe once every couple episodes.

Whether the animation is better is up to you, but in my opinion the "average" has risen over time. The animation for some of the final arc battles and attacks has been pretty good, plus the animation for some of the "buildings"/"structures" (not to spoil anything, although it seems you're a manga reader), it very well done.

The magic circles are there, but toned down, I think.

Can't wait for the OAD to be subbed. It is very a fun episode. In fact the funny part isn't about the girls but

Yeah, I stopped watching when Erza took a 1 sec armor change manga into a 1 min magic girl transformation >.>"

^ It seems like you stopped watching after episode 6, cuz' thats when Erza first transformed. If you didn't like it then I doubt you will like it now.

Watched the phantom guild arc. Am pretty impressed. Only knock I have is that they keep on referencing that 'shed blood for blah' yet I haven't seen any blood at all. And it's weird that blades leave no laceration at all.

I do think the face drawing has improved a fair bit. Don't recall so much dbz elements with natsu though

Let's make it clear. Animation is presumably the worst element of puzzle named Fairy Tail. Occasionally (e.g. in some important moments) it is better, more careful, but it's definitely not a standard here. Backgrounds and chars could have more details and be better shaded, but it's only TV serie, so you cannot expect good stuff here.

I noticed 2 things:
  • Reduced use of CG magical circle signs, which is good.
    Spoiler for manga:
  • Natsu's glowing hand instead of flames... WTF, tight budget? Hand flames weren't maybe perfect, but this now is so typical and overused across animes that I'm really disappointed.
- snip -
This glowing hand is really out of place and they still insist on using it.

We haven't had any real battles now, so the sample is not enough to claim that repeated attacks footage usage (like 1000x times so far) was really diminished lately. I wish it be true though...

I can somewhat agree with Quarkboy, but times of rising average animation level are in the past. It isn't really getting better in last 9 eps and they are even lowering this average in recent eps.
Maybe it will improve again toward some battles.

I do like how they keep the character proportions (boobs) and faces so close to the manga. It started out a bit rough. (at the tower gerald arc).

Probably the main reason i stopped watching naruto which has like 5 different animation teams for each episode >.>"

I'll probably keep this as my main shounen show for now

Episode 77 is awesome! first off we get to see Gajeel's quest in search of a cat. Absolutely hilarious with how desperate he is. Then we get to see interactions of various characters, including Levy's group. (this group really needs more attention!)

the anime has made great improvement of the manga by adding in relevant foreshadowing. Just love it!

and then Mystogun shows up. At last.

I also like the new background music in this episode, esp the one used when Carles tells Happy off for not knowing anything.

The 77 was so good ...
When you know all the story, when they try to always protect Fairy Tail ... And when you look at this episode ...
Nothing, no more Fairy Tail ...

Yes, that was a fantastic piece. A few more new pieces this episode, and hopefully more as we now enter the Edolas arc.

That was done only like 3-4 times during whole series, otherwise it is normal transformation.

Nothing bad in making things flashy just once for a demonstration.

The only thing that is the same is that anime has no blood.
