and there was some information on Heroaca as well:
Tensai Okamura hasn't directed a Bones anime in years, but he maintains that the studio has not lost its touch at all. “When I look at My Hero Academia, I can still feel the passion of the animators and a sense of consistency in the animation.”
But all that high-quality animation may come at a cost. According to director Kenji Nagasaki, even My Hero Academia was made with constraints. “The idea behind the My Hero Academia anime was to make an anime with the level of quality that only Bones could make. But I was terribly nervous at first. We had almost no time before the first season was about to air. Of course, even in the manga, Deku doesn't fight as much in the first part of the story, and there's a bigger emphasis on thoughts and feelings, but it's only from the second season onward that the animation starts looking like a Bones anime.”
It confirms how rough the schedule was in the beginning and why it was quite average in S1.
You reckon it was on BONES for rushing to grab MHA's license or do you think it was Shueisha shoving it onto BONES so early on? I've always felt that they should've waited at least until 2017 to do it.
Bones was given the series by Toho. I remember Bones CEO Minami saying that they should do it since its a "super power" series. In the end, Bones doesn't decide the air date so someone on the production committee wanted to get it out right away without considering the logistics.
I think we cannot throw away the possibility for this to be the start of another back to back 3 seasons with 6 months in between. I mean there were 9 months from S1 to S2 but most likely I think this is also to give enough preparation room for another movie in 2020.
Anyone think we might get a teaser PV of some sort at Jump Festa? Sure, October is quite a ways away, but a pv of some sort would be neat.
But regardless, I'm excited for a very polished(hopefully) season of MHA in October 2019. It'll make things that much more exciting. And since it was stated they started production at a few months back, that means they have at least a full year of working on the series, which is definitely great.
I bet whatever that it will be drawn by Akiyama Yoko and also that will be published in the Shonen Jump+. Other than that, I would like an official translation announcement of this adaptation. That would be great.
