Natsu wants us to sit away from the television in a brightly lit room. I don't know why they decided to introduce one of these things this late in the game. He looked kind of kiddy there.

The opening has a lot of new characters while the ending seems to have this arcs characters. Maybe the new opening will last a bit longer.
Spoiler for Episode 12:

Is it UL or UR? Subs say UL but Manga says UR.

And Yes I know that Japanese L and R are interchangable and I'm still suffering from the whole Erza (Ezra) vs Elsa (Esla) thing.

Meh the 2nd OP just screams low budget, lots of stills, pans and reused scenes... really disappointed in the production values for this show.. heck I was excited when I saw A-1 got this.. I'll even prefer Pierrot now...

I actually find the new OP less BUDGETy than the first, which was so crappy it had to be redrawn after a few eps. Even then, the cheap looping segments after "oh yeah, oh yeah" stuck out worse than the still shots in the new one.

How can A-1 and Satelight get any cheaper than they are right now? I mean A-1 has So-Ra-No-Wo-To coming out, and it's looking really good, so why does Fairy Tail get the crappy treatment? It can't be the budget, they clearly have enough money, and FT is a popular manga. Is it because it's a shonen? It can't be. The big three gets there share of great animators at times, such as Norio Matsumoto and Noriyuki Matsutake. Shinji Ishihira isn't even trying to get good animation directors for FT or anything. As for the opening, you see for the majority of it is reused scenes from the anime or just stills, and the opening should have better animation than the series for the most part.

The good part of the opening is when Gazille was fighting Natsu, that was great, even though it was for like 2 seconds. See what happens when you actually make characters move. Episode 12 was probably the best animated episode yet in my opinion. I thought the the pacing was a little too fast for my liking. A little more serious in this episode, which I like. Lastly, the ending didn't kill the end of the episode, which was great.

If FT is going to get better, they can either fire Ishihira, or another studio can somehow pick it up.

Well Since I've already gotten past the whole "still scenes and what not" stuff, all I can say is its another great FT ep so not much to say really.

The new OP and ED are not bad, I still like the fact they keep with the chibi art style for the ED
But ED shows us where we will get to with the anime...hopefully

Cherish those two seconds and expect them in loops if FT amvs are made

The still ice suddenly multiplying really takes still battles to a whole new level, ruined the entire Gray/Leon fight for me. The OP and ED are indeed better, although I still think the OP was replaced too soon...oh, and although it doesn't matter much, Natsu's snoring SFX was somehow off. Yeah I'm weird, I know o_0
At least the music's getting richer with each episode!

Oh, and they finally got rid of the narrator intro! There wasn't a peep from the narrator during the episode either. It's probably too much to hope they're getting rid of him permanently...

It's been replaced with Natsu's TV warning.

New Opening wasn't bad, new ending is better, the animated shots for each were very nice to see as well, along with a certain short silver-haired girl making an appearance in animated form, which is good since I always liked her character. As for the episode itself, very nicely paced, lot of fleshing out of the characters, good insert song there in the middle, the VA for everyone including the minor characters is still top-notch and one of the most positive aspects of the series, action was also good enough despite a lot of them being stills, but overall just a really solid episode and I can't wait for more. LoL at the scene with Erza btw

So early they changes opening and ending.
Song was not bad, the scenes was good.
Opening have already show Phantom lord storyline
Gajeel looks so tough, But is his eyes red?
Why just only Gajeel?
First ending was Lucy, now is Natsu and Happy
Lucky is just minor character why she is with in the last opening scenes.

Lyra song was nice
Although I said combat fight motion was not enough animation, but magic fight was good.

Spoiler for future:

Official glossary says Ul, so I use Ul.

I think Uru would look a bit better but Ul's how the author wanted it.

The missing narrator is a good point, the small segments before the OP and after the ED with Natsu and Happy respectively somehow remind me of Gintama...
@ Ravelt: you can see some people behind the Raditz look-alike as shadows, they're easy to make out.
