What Anime’s would you like to see get a reboot/remake?

Recommended Posts

There are so many great anime of the past that have their own charm, but watching them alongside newer anime may dim their shine, and cause their glory to slip away into the depths of the past.

Some anime that could benefit from a reboot in my opinion would be those that either have a messed up or unfinished story (deviated from the manga) or those with severely outdated color and graphics. 

Some of my favorites that need a remake are Rurouni Kenshin, and Inuyasha, which could benefit greatly from an updated look, and I believe could become popular anime once again, as they were in the past.

Because both of these anime are set during past time periods, they could be updated without changing the image of the anime.

What do you think?

Reboot or remake?

If we're talking reboot, I'd like to see the Mezzo series (particularly DSA) get rebooted.  I just don't think the series got enough love, and I always thought it was a great show.  Elfen Lied also had a lot of potential to go on.  Really how the series ended, it is perfectly reasonable to see a follow-up season/series.

Remade/remastered, I think DNAngel is worthy.  It was a beautiful production when it came out, I think it would do well in a remaster.  Tales of Eternia needs a remaster by UFOTable badly.  That series aged so badly, it completely makes the story unfollowable anymore. lol

Holy melons, thanks for reminding me this existed. It was one of my favourites and it's been 15 years. I don't even know if I finished reading it. Last I knew there was this character named Argentine.

Yup, the butler guy.  He did not have an anime incarnation, but made for an interesting story in the manga.

Reboot/ remake isn’t the same thing 🙊 

I see.. reboot had a subtle difference in if the series already has good storyline and quality it just needs to be “remastered”. And if the series had a crappy storyline, deviating from the source or otherwise could be done better - it needs a reboot, like Claymore. Claymore needs a mad reboot. Inuyasha and Rurouni Kenshin could arguably go about their stories in a more straightforward way and also get a reboot, but a remastering would be just as good IMO.

I think the best part about reviving an old series,  whether it’s a reboot or remake is, the audience of new will get to see new promo materials, and hopefully lots of merch.

I'd like this one to be remade to be more like the manga version.  I'm not usually into the sports-themed anime, but I read the manga first on this and was intrigued enough that I tried the anime.  The anime wasn't totally bad, but what's there could certainly use a makeover, and it definitely needs to be completed/caught up to the manga!

I'd definitely like to see a reboot of Gungrave that follows the video game series. It would be cool if they could remake Bartender (though I feel like I'm the only one that's actually seen that anime 😭).

I’d mentioned it in other topics, but I would like to see Battle Angel Alita get a full anime adaption as the old 2 ep OVA barely scratched the surface & it was one of the few manga series I was really into.  While I wasn’t a fan of the live action movie, it did seem to get some positive attention, so maybe it could happen.

I'd like to see Bones finish Darker than Black as the second season was so obviously left with the intention of further continuation. I doubt it will ever happen mind you, what with it being 10+ years old now. It's one of those things that if I ever win the lottery, I'll be shooting a cheque their way to finish it 😅

At this point, I would be okay with either a remake or reboot of Outlaw Star. It could have been the Space Dandy of its time if they gave it more attention. I would like a remake of Big O. This show gave me the chills with its noir-style storytelling and visual direction, mysterious characters and backgrounds, and eerie musical scores that intensified a scene. The Batman of anime but with an unfortunate and rushed finale.
