There's a reason why people don't just let so-and-so company handle everything =_= It's not as simple as writing a nice letter and asking please =_=

^Yup. Also, Trigger wouldn't fit at all if we're strictly looking at the studios resume and staff...

Happy with JC.

WHAT!!!! I LOVE TRIGGER ARE YOU KIDDING ME LOL. They did Kill la Kill. And they split from Gainax because they hated their way of producing things. Either way, if you just look at the designs for their new anime it looks better than UFOTable's stuff I've seen for Fate series and looks to be on par to Railgun S from the PV I saw. The point is that Trigger is brand new and has already produced pretty amazing work, and they're still putting things together. I feel like they would probably be a much better fit for Index in NT than JC. I say this especially because Trigger has directly said before that they love series that have an insane amount of trollish amounts of craziness happening everywhere... and in anything they have done up until now, they've had lots of amazing workmanship all around... so I dunno why you are exactly saying that? Their first anime was Kill la Kill lol... (or technically it was Little Witch Academia which looks absolutely stunning by the way on 1080P with 3x as many frames as a usual anime does) and Kill la Kill was their first long one. I mean they are brand new and they are already doing things that good. I have to say that I think that they'd be good...

What makes you think they'll love to do Index =_= ? This show couldn't be further apart from what they like.

And I might as well tackle Utfotable while I'm at it- unless someone is willing to cough up the big cash, Utfotable are strictly working for Type/Moon and Bamco.

The staff at Trigger, their style and what they do is on the opposite spectrum of what Index is and how it's written. It'd pretty much be all style and no substance if Trigger had animated it. Their style of world and story building doesn't really fit at all. Too bombastic and the fights would probably bore them.

Also, seems every anime I come by lately has people wishing ufotable does it... Just enjoy what you have.

It reminds me of the days where EVERYONE wanted KyoAni to do EVERYTHING.

Utfotable is good, but that quality comes with a price- Time, Money and Manpower.

Ah, I remember that. That was really annoying. Implying KyoAni could do good with every single series and I'm inclined to lean on the "no" as of recent.

And yeah, bunch of factors in play. Just be happy it was adapted at all and not turned out shit. They have done a very good job with it.

Isn't Shaft now kind of like Kyoani was... and wasn't Gainax then like Kyoani was less then... Either way... meh... I don't get the whole Trigger isn't deep in style. They've literally only done one show. I don't really get how you can say that they're shallow yet. I meant that by the time it's time to do NT... a few years will have passed by then... and they'll have animated a lot of shows... regardless... isn't NT bombastic... or am I reading the wrong series. (I must be.) But I guess you two are opposed to Trigger for some weird reason... I guess I'll wait to bringing this up again until more stuff by them comes out later...

Either way, don't get me wrong. I love J.C. staff's adaptation of it... what I hate though... is what they did with railgun filler... to create the split in the fanbase that currently exists... They're slowly improving... but then they had Railgun S part 2... I'm okay with them because they do a really good job, but I'm really annoyed at how split up the fanbase is because of how the anime has been handled so far... (did I say that enough times? )

While they didn't do a bad job with Index, I don't thing they really did a good job either. Even though they covered the story quite accurately, they changed the tone the LN gave to make it more...shonenish I guess.

This is really apparent when you compare Touma vs Accelerator in Index to Railgun S. The complete lack of blood and injuries, the plasma ball being about the size of a large beach ball over Accelerator's head, rather than a phenomenon that threatened the entire city, Touma standing at the end as if he only had light bruises, completely disregarding the severity of that conflict. The Railgun S version of that fight is on a completely different scale, making the Index version look like a school yard brawl in comparison.

The other issue I have is with Touma's character development, they skip a few really important bits of dialogue that lend greatly to understanding his motivations, the reasons why he stands in the face of danger with this fist clenched. For example, Touma's inner monologue after he saves Himegami from Aoreolus (which leads to Amnesiac Touma's first IDTI), the conversation Touma has with Kuroko after he saves her from Awaki's large scale attack, Index's talk with Himegami at the end of the Stab Sword arc.

While I love certain scenes from the anime and play them over and over (Accelerator vs Awaki was done perfectly imo) as a whole I can't help but be disapointed with it as an adaptation of the Index LN.

That being said, if they do the next Index season with the quality they handled the Railgun Sisters Arc, I will be quite pleased.

Edit: Forgot to mention that what led me to read the LN if the first place was this jarring feeling that there was something missing the entire time I watched the show, I just couldn't shake the feeling that what I was watching was incomplete at some level. It came quite apparent after reading the LN and at that time I become hooked on the Raildex franchise.

That's not somewhere else. That's one of the Shifting and Fluctuating Worlds. Duh...

So I made this post a while back when speculating about how the remainder could be adapted....

Season 5-a 2-cour season covering Norse Mythology, then NT1-4

2-Rushed WWIII and skipped SS
Season 3-a 2 cour season covering Volumes 14-19
Season 4-a 1-cour season covering Volumes 20-22
Season 5-a 2-cour season covering NT 1-6

3-Rushed Norse Mythology SS+WWIII
Season 3-A 2-cour season covering Volumes 14-18 and then SS2
Season 4-A 2-cour season covering Volume 19, Norse Mythology, and Volumes 20-22
Season 5-A 2-cour season covering NT 1-6


4-All my money, JC Staff
Season 3-A 4-cour season covering Volumes 14-19, then SS2, then Volumes 20-22
Season 4-A 2-cour season covering Norse Mythology and then NT1-4

I prefer options 1 and 4.
We can't have any anime original arcs for Index. Ever.
Now I shall update it.

1-Well-paced 2-cour seasons
Season 3-a 2 cour season covering Volumes 14-19
Season 4-a 2-cour season covering SS2 and Volumes 20-22
Season 5-a 2-cour season covering Norse Mythology, then NT 01-04
Season 6-a 2-cour season covering NT 05-10

2-Rushed WWIII and skipped SS
Season 3-a 2 cour season covering Volumes 14-19
Season 4-a 1-cour season covering Volumes 20-22
Season 5-a 2-cour season covering NT 01-06
Season 6-a 2-cour season covering NT 07-12

3-Rushed Norse Mythology SS+WWIII
Season 3-A 2-cour season covering Volumes 14-18 and then SS2
Season 4-A 2-cour season covering Volume 19, Norse Mythology, and Volumes 20-22
Season 5-A 2-cour season covering NT 01-06
Season 6-A 2-cour season covering NT 07-12

4-All my money, JC Staff
Season 3-A 4-cour season covering Volumes 14-19, then SS2, then Volumes 20-22
Season 4-A 2-cour season covering Norse Mythology and then NT 01-04
Season 5-A 2-cour season covering NT05-10

5-Fund it, JC Staff
Season 3-A 4-cour season covering Volumes 14-19, then SS2, then Volumes 20-22
Season 4-A 2-cour season covering Norse Mythology and then NT 01-10

Obviously, Options 1, 4, and 5 are satisfactory but Options 4 and 5 are unlikely...
NOTE: The NT12 thing is under the assumption that NT11 will either be the first in a 2-parter of NT12 and NT11 will be their own one-part arcs each.

^Thing is though SS2 is only 233 Pages compared to the regular volumes which go from 380-450. That would be dragging it by a ton, wouldn't it?

I guess so. Maybe 6 episodes for SS2, then...
The thing is, I want to see WWIII at its fullest so giving it a fair amount of time is a good thing.
I also want to see NT10 receiving a fair amount of time so that there may be some expansion in it as well, though.

S4
SS2-SP-NM-WW3
2 episodes-4 Episodes-4 Episodes-14 episodes

That actually seems fair. But, I think we're all in agreement that Season 3 should be volumes 14-19 only.

Yeah. When Season 1 did 6 volumes, it was really well paced.

Since this is where OT gets real good, they should probably do the same.

I'm expecting them to animate what they didn't of SS1 or a bit of SS2 though for a introductory episode. Also feel SP is crucial.

Then for NT:
1~6 for Season 1
7~12 for Season 2.

But we have Railgun III and IV/movie before that.
