The sources I've heard that from are basically rumors from forums and stuff, no real first person or decent second person sources. I just was curious about what kind of power the artist has over an animated version of his or her work.
Plus, I'm even skeptical about Rinne getting anime since it isn't really much popular to get an anime like Urusei Yatsura, Ranma 1/2, and Inuyasha. But I didn't included because of the name value of Takahashi Rumiko.
Rinne doesn't get much fanfare, it's true, but as you said Takahashi's name is enough to get it out there. Arata and Rinne aren't my favorite series or anything although I DO read them. I'd just like to see more anime coming from the magazine.
As for believing rumors, I didn't say I believed them. I simply stated that I heard these rumors. I was curious as to whether they are true or not. It makes sense that artists would be too busy drawing to really get involved with the anime adaptions of their work, but I would think they'd have some say. Look at the whole Shirokuma Cafe thing going on with Higa Aloha. That's what made me kinda curious of what the manga artists' role is in an anime adaption, besides the 'original work'.
So, I think that the author only has small role for the anime-adaptation like choosing voice actors and request the actors to read a script in specific ways; but, I don't think the mangaka has power on other things like making scripts, character design, drawing scenes, background, special effect, etc., etc.
I wonder if the Magi anime will be done in fall or January? Though longer anime don't usually premier in January, and Magi has enough material to last a little while, if they don't premeditate a year or shorter.
