Barely the introductory chapters, actually.

I know. I meant like what chapters so I can pick up from where the most recent episode left off.

On the official web, in the page of the characters, something that had caught my attention in Shiranui.

You can identify? (who read manga)

Your second picture doesn't work although I know what page you're talking about because I've re-read this series way too often.

However, I don't think using a facial expression from a future chapter is really that important. It's not like this is an animated scene or anything, it's just concept art to show the kinds of expressions they make. I mean, she makes similar expressions in other chapters, maybe they just liked that angle?

It is because spoiler is too big. And as we're on the topic of anime, I was afraid to get in trouble .

Anyway, I deleted the lines, so I guess it's okay.

You don't need to post it, I told you I know what you're talking about. I recognized the expression instantly. However, I don't think it proves anything either way.

But, we probably can rule out the chances of being only 12 or 13. Can probably be up more than 24, thinking positively can follow the same path Sket Dance, Gintama or Fairy Tail. At least the Gainax think so, I guess.

This image gives me hope, even if only a little.

No, we can't. We can't rule out anything. Having a facial expression from a later chapter does not mean they plan on animating that chapter. Frankly that logic makes no sense at all. It's not like the picture is an animation cel or anything. It's just concept art.

But it's hope . It's better than nothing. Medaka Box has everything to be a good anime. Deserves to be the level of Nurarihyon no Mago, at least. (two seasons with 25 episodes.) If anime, goes up in the series, it is quite likely.

the anime has quality, just lack the fans (many, I hope.)

I don't know why Gainax are doing it that early, but they've already updated the site with the information on the fourth episode (story/staff/characters). They've got 2 (!!!) Animation Directors for this episode, so I think they'll animate the fight properly.
(actually I've made fun of this number - for example only 3 episodes of Guilty Crown has had 1 Animation Director, and the 19th had the most - 7 Animation Directors)

I don't think having two directors is better than one. Wouldn't they just get in each other's way? Well, I suppose given the format of the series they could each work on a different half at the same time, but they certainly wouldn't make any particular scene better by having two. Too many cooks spoils the soup and all that.

Well the 19th ep of GC was really a feast for my eyes, so I don't think so. On the other hand it's the more issue with the Key Animators - but I don't keep track of them.
BTW here's rather interesting video about the process of the working on animation:

There's a very good read on what animation directors do , a post by Cindy H Yamauchi who's worked a lot at Madhouse and recently been the animation director of the first episode of Sakamichi no Appolon.

She brings up what you pointed here:

Quote:
Most television shows have anywhere from four to six Animation Directors (sometimes more when the deadline gets extremely tight), and unfortunately, they don't necessarily draw or time out the animation in a similar way. To give the show or film a more consistent, uniform look, the chief animation director (sou sakuga kantoku or sou sak-kan for short) is responsible for overseeing the Animation Directors.
So even if there's more than one they're still working under a chief that oversees the whole thing.

If there's an action sequence then maybe someone was brought in to oversee just that

Quote:
The Animation Directors are usually assigned based on their particular skills and specializations. Easy ones to categorize include mecha and/or effects specialists, creature specialists and action specialists.
@Iby

Since you brought up that vid,part 4 deals with Imaichi who used to work at gainax,while he's not working on this show his style mentioned in that vid popped up a bit in episode 3 when the punk got taken down.

It depends on the reason for assigning more than one animation director. As totoum pointed out, some people are brought in for a particular specialty.

However, in other cases, multiple directors are assigned because of tight scheduling. To meet a deadline, work on an episode is divided and sourced to different places, with each segment requiring a separate animation director. The Chief Animation Director is tasked with stabilizing character art, but there isn't always enough time to do it right (new trend = multiple Chief Animation Directors).
