Really, no amount of pacing? How about just adapting up until the war declaration after British Halloween and then leave WW3 as it's own separate cour? As much as I would like to see NT being adapted, there was literally no need to rush to have WW3 THIS season (something many of you wanted to happen with unrealistic expectations and now that you got your wish you complain).

That would only work ONCE, in the first season. The fact that he kept repeating this for every season after instead of learning SOMETHING from it says a lot about how much thought he truly put into it.

Kuroageha, YES I watched the anime (all seasons even Railgun) and have read the LNs, kind of why I can and am making these complaints (which is more than can be said for others) and take into account that I was one of the people that didn't entirely hate the season (doesn't mean I am blind to very obvious the problems the series has had since the beginning and I don't care if you or anyone else don't like what I have to say).
Are you really going to say that when Index 3 cut most of the OP and ED's though? They did it exactly to show more of the episodes.

It also worked for the second season really assuming they did the same, but theres no telling if that's what they did there since within context that line only really refers to season 1

As for what you suggested you do know that's something they wanted to do right? They had to either do three things(If I recall, finish OT, reboot OT for god knows what reason or start NT), none of which is what they really wanted and they originally had to do so with 24 episodes and tried to beg for more because they decided to finish OT because thats what people wanted.

They literally could not get more episodes than the two given, that's all production committee not them.

I like how you're all arguing about the semantics of how the seasons were organised in what's a very obvious show of pure incompetence in terms of production.

The bottom line, at the end of the day, is the following: they rushed Index III into the ground in order to adapt New Testament (considering how its sales are dropping by the volume), except now they're realising that if people don't buy the DVD/BDs and it performs poorly, then they're not getting their NT material anyway and they're basically run a series into the ground for nothing.

And it shouldn't be surprising given that, even if you remove the adaptation aspect, of which I never truly cared for (I'm a firm believer that a good anime isn't necessarily a good adaptation of its source material), this was just terrible altogether to watch all in terms of animation, pacing, organisation, plot comprehension, and entertainment... You people talk about cutting out OPs and EDs to show more of the episodes but that's ludicrous. The basis of competent storytelling is to be able to tell your story within your allocated timeframe and not have to scrape by a minute here and a minute there.

I'll have to agree on the whole "you wanted it and now you complain you got it" aspect of it, Chosen_Hero. Though none of you are strangers to my typical "I told you this would happen", anyway.

Be aware your very post makes it seem Index had extra original scenes when in fact to the end she got her scenes cut, one would expect you to be happy about it but looks like you wanted her to be entirely removed from the anime while barely having ED that are just static images on slideshow
I don't understand what you want.

Also you are ignoring the fact that the editor wanted to end ALL of OT to be done with to jump to New Testament, and that's no new info, it's been known since way before the anime aired. The higher ups just don't care.
It wasn't just a trainwreck that happened halfway the season, it had a big flag warning about it since day 0 before it started running.

Marcus H was right; Index III was a monkey paw's wish come true. I'll confess that I stopped watching at Episode 4 when all my hopes for the series flowed right into the gutter. But the writing was on the walls from Episode 1 and even during the lead up to the premiere.

All of Index III's troubles come down to this: gross-mismanagement at all levels of the production. Not specifically a budget issue like some might say.

TL;DR…
I hate everyone

I think we can say that the mobile MMO is the best adaptation of the third season coverage so far.

Lol this seems accurate on pretty much every level.

I hope that someday somehow we can get a remake of season 3 (and a season 4?).

How embarrassing. I don't think I can ever forgive Project Index and Nishikiori.

Good for Accel though.

Apparently it seems Accel anime might be 12 episodes? This is probably a good thing. Can focus more resources on fewer episodes and potential for more seasons if itís good sooner.

The recent pvís both looked fantastic. Iím very glad they seem to be putting a ton of effort into this.

Kamachi interview:



Kamachi outright states that it was the producers who insisted they cram the rest of the Old Testament (9 volumes of LN) into 26 Episodes.

Yeah, that sucks

Maybe those producers thought Index didn't have the same conditions or chances of success as SAO to garantee a more extensive adaptation...

Wasn't his own production company involved in getting Index III off the ground to begin with?
