Re: Toaru Majutsu no Index's 2nd Season Green-Lit
Mouryou no Hako (Box of Goblins) had lots of quality seeping out of every cell. It also has 6 episodes of discussion around a table on the etymology of kanji, spiritualism, mythology and the historical context and crossover of all of these. In a 13 episode show. Poorly written literature-to-anime adaptations will always exist. The trouble is financiers aren't likely to put the money on the table to make them unless there is already a proven track record of return. So far, Index and Railgun have provided that track record. A pity, really.
