I note you are still using ANN's ".cc" domain. Were you aware they've had their ".com" domain back for a while now?

I don't recall ANN even posting an article alerting people of this fact, so I wonder how many people are still using the ".cc" domain every day.

I wonder if it will be 24 episodes like all of the other Index and Railgun seasons.

Wait, so they are still using the ".cc" domain for their own Twitter links?

Checked Twitter for myself, question answered. They are.

That would be one way to temper fans enthusiasm.

Announcement: New Index anime!

Fans: YES!!

Announcement: one cour

Fans: Oh


That said, I would be expecting 2 cours, along with everyone else.

It's certainly happened in the past.

Just look at Attack on Titan. 25 episode first season, and 12 episode and season, and the second season left us with more questions than it answered.

Although I am not sure if enough source material was available for more episodes.

I am certain Index has plenty of material considering there is a long running spinoff series too.

I won't get my hopes up.

How many episodes would it have to be to finish off the Old Testament?

The first two seasons with 24 episodes covered 6 volumes each. So it would probably take another 36 or so episodes to complete the 22 volumes

Strictly speaking, the first two seasons adapted most of a total of 14 volumes, so 7 volumes each would be the average.

But actually, it wasn't evenly split. Season 1 adapted volumes 1-6, minus one chapter of volume 5. Season 2 used one episode for that one chapter of volume 5 missed by season 1, then used the rest to cover volumes 7-13 + most of volume SS1 (effectively adapting 8 volumes total).

There are 9 main volumes remaining in the "Old Testament" series, plus the SS2 volume. Even though much of SS1 was adapted, I'm personally expecting most of SS2 won't be, since the stories in it are more scattered and further outside the main story line / group of characters.

So that leaves 9 volumes (and maybe a bit extra) to be adapted, which is within the realm where I'd personally think it's possible they choose to adapt it all in 24 episodes, though they'd have to cut larger chunks of the story out than they have previously. A hypothetical 26 episodes would be allow them to do it pretty close to their season 2 pacing. 36 episodes would also be possible, but it'd be a more luxurious pace than season 2. 24 episodes + a movie for the conclusion might be another way give a reasonable pacing.
