Not much you can do when you don't even bother to read the source material to begin with ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Anime hater blaming the LN readers and the creator lol

Not much you can do when the source sucks to begin with ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

LN fanboys blaming the director lol

I can't comment on an interview where the only source I can find is on a Chinese forum. There doesn't even seem to be a legitimate direct translation for the interview.

It's fair to criticize Nishikiori for his directing and how he approached the adaptation, but theres a difference between critiquing and straight up insulting him. The harassment he received for a tweet hes since deleted was horrible.

As for animation-wise, it's not fair to completely pin that on Nishikiori. Anime production is inherently stressful, and so many problems can crop up during it. Index s3 itself was a production disaster, and being 2 cour certainly doesn't help with that. J.C Staff themselves have already been having a bad run with this sorta thing, with them picking up a few too many shows and having to outsource a couple of them because they prove to be too much of a load. OPM S2 itself is already struggling despite being planned for years. It can be hard to find animators for projects too, since there are only so many animators in the industry and yet more shows get produced each season.

As for him being difficult to work with, do you know of any specifics or any links that talk about that? I've never quite heard anything like that about him.

Even with that taken into account we don't know if the manuscripts could even work because we don't have information regarding on the manuscript itself. For all we know, it actually wouldn't have worked with how it's written or changed. At worst, it's just presumptuous to at least assume if it is the case or not.

I'm not trying to defend Nishikiori but I feel like this is rather difficult to even get an idea what's even going on.

The adaptation issues are on his shoulder. It seems that a Newtype interview with staff members has told us that he doesn't listen to the author's ideas for helping scenes work in the anime, claiming that it doesn't work in the anime, "it's not his fault that the LN is too convoluted". In addition to this, the author stopped working with him after episode 3 due to them not getting along. So yeah, this is definitely who you can blame for the adaptation. It wasn't his choice for it to only be 2 cour, but your animation and adaptation gripes are with this guy. He has a history of being hard to work with in the past and thus having issues recruiting big name animators.


Apples | Apr 9, 6:46 AM
Theres no need for insulting comments just because a director didn't handle an adaptation as you wanted it to be. It's only an anime.

Also please have a little perspective and realize that the issues of Index s3 are not solely on his shoulders. Problems like having a rushed production schedule, and only being given 26 episodes to adapt the material he was given are completely out of his control. The fact that Index got a s3 to begin with is almost a miracle on itself, and he did his best to try to animate what fans wanted to see as best as he could with the resources he was given.

Don't you dare think of touching new testament of Index


abystoma2 | Apr 7, 4:12 AM
This guy should just stop.


TomHazard | Apr 6, 9:05 AM
Lmao I genuinely don't care anymore

He deserves to be taken out of the anime industry after ruining to aru so badly.
