Toshifumi Akai

Akai is the series director. He says that the preparations for the anime were assembled from "an early stage" and remarks that there are hardly any two-cour anime that are as "blessed" as Babylonia is in regards to the schedule. Of course, when it comes to two-cour anime, the second cour is always an uphill battle for the animators, so there's plenty of fight still to go.

didn't people from projects like darling in the franxx also leave early so they could work on this
"I like young-girl sexual creations, Lolicon is just one hobby of my many hobbies," he says.
I ask what his wife, standing nearby, thinks of his "hobby".
"She probably thinks no problem," he replies. "Because she loves young boys sexually interacting with each other."

Oh, I can tell! Even I was surprised at how good the animation is still after 10 episodes. In almost every 2 cour anime that I watched, the first 2-3 episodes usually looks amazing then the animation starts to get inconsistent or worse after 3 or so episodes. Babylonia has been an exception and its animation has stayed consistent throughout. I'm hoping the 2nd half of the series looks just as good.

If anything, I think it will look even better honestly.
The staff knows the important bits of the story and I think the quality will reach many highs during the second half

yep or after the first 4-6 episodes the animation quality starts to drop

thats the unfortunate thing about anime this days because of anime overproduction and animator shortage crisis too
