I really think Railgun S was the best Index anime so far by a mile... But yeah, the filler was pretty meh... But the good parts were pretty amazing.

Honestly, I think it'll be kind of a given that Index III's visual assets will be heightened from previous seasons, since that's how it's always been with the series. Index II looked pretty neat when compared to Index I, and Railgun S looked amazing compared to Railgun, so it makes some decent amount of sense that more budget will make Index III look somewhat similar to what Railgun S did. Unless Miki had to scrape the project off the ground so badly it was only approved under tight-ass budget, but I don't think that's likely.

So let's not start wishing Nagai's incompetence at directing things with substance in recent years onto Index III...

I think I need some more info here. Outside of Raildex, what has Nagai done that has people calling him incompetent. I only know about Gundam IBO of which I didn't think there was any significant criticism of aesthetics-wise. But I'm clearly out of the loop here.

Nagai?
Please no. Not again.

Edit:
Just watched Franxx episode 14 that had Nagai as director, yeah no, screw Nagai he literally made the worst episode of the series after the previous one that was labeled as the best so far(not directed by him). I don't want him to ruin it.

Not unless it's actually screening (until then it's just hopes and dreams)

I think it's mostly just the Railgun filler that people are butthurt about which as far as I'm concerned has always been a bit harsh. Yeah, the fillers weren't that great but they weren't really that bad either and I wonder if the people complaining about the filler have ever had to put up with the crap they used to give us with Bleach and Naruto. And his direction with the actual canon stories was always top notch and heavily under-appreciated. Those arcs were extraordinarily well done. At times, I thought they were phenomenal and even above anything I'd seen in Index. At the end of the day, the decision to do fillers are something which may or may not have even been in his control and are almost always done because they are considered to be the least worst option. And fillers for an ongoing series are almost always destined for failure. Either they're a pointless waste of time because they aim to achieve nothing substantial or they aim to achieve something substantial and thus break with the canon.

And outside of Railgun he's not had problems. He directed Ano Hana (great) , Ano Natsu (great), Anthem of the Heart (great) and Gundam IBO (okayish imo though its quite popular). His pedigree as a director is undeniable. And episode directing isn't the best indicator for the record: Especially if you're hating on an episode due to the writing which is established before an episode director does their bit.

If I remember right, Nagai wanted to kill off the entire cast of IBO near the end as a lesson, but had to be reined in by the writers. Considering the bad guys won there, there's reasons to be wary. But Index has a source material to draw from and I doubt they'll deviate from it, so the director doesn't really matter.

I hope they tone down her exposure cause she's no selling point for season III, someone like Kanzaki or Itsuwa would be a better fit. Speaking of which, I hope they get popular again too

It's just a key visual, the director said he was going to follow only the LN contents.

Uhhh, if you knew the manga you would know the anime basically whitewashed Misaka of her character flaws on the manga, making her like a pure moral icon which she isn't.

And it's pointless, the staff is the one with Nishikiori.

Realize that you are complaining that one of the most popular (if not the most popular) characters in a franchise is appearing in promotional material. She would be a selling point for season 3 even if she only had a single scene.
