There was this one anime about two boys in an old japanese setting, called hero or some such. One is an urchin and the other is an emperor. Plot interested me, but the animation was absolutely horrible, some cell shaded crap.

You are indeed correct, I didn't necessarily want to imply that all series that differed from the manga were bad. Because frankly I enjoyed Blue Exorcist and Soul Eater. Even though the manga didn't develop enough in time for the anime adaptation to follow through the story the manga had set.

One classic that could use the update: Remember Akira? How about a version that covers everything from the manga that the original movie could not fit into the budget? (Nothing against the movie, of course, but there was some neat stuff that they had to leave out.)

Also Gantz. I'm not going to lie and say Gantz is some well written masterpiece, but when I want to watch blood, gore and titties, I want them in HD dammit. And preferably, I would hope it wouldn't be animated by Gonzo again.


I haven't read the manga but I know its popular and I tried watching the anime for it. The art style and angels are just so weird it would give me headaches so I had to stop watching it. I would love to give it a second go if it was redone a bit smoother and in HD



The manga is way.... and way better than the anime could offer. I really recommend you to give it a try. All I can say is that the manga is a masterpiece though the ending is a bit disappointed but the overall is still great despite a rash ending. I really enjoyed the excitements it had been giving me over the years. Though this is just my opinion, i hope you would give it a chance.

I'd like a season 2 to blue exorcist, simply because the story hasn't deviated too much from the manga. The only issue that might arise is about their mother, though I wouldn't be surprised if it plays into the manga as a clever twist.

On a different note, I think more adventures about the johto cast in pokemon chronicles should have been made. Those eps offered a wider view of that world that it wasn't just Ash all the time. Though I admit I gave up on the anime a long while back after they changed voice actors.

I admit most of the stuff I want as anime are either already anime that haven't had later chapters animated yet like bleach or never had animes to begin with, aka cloverfield/zombie powder. How I wish they'd animate them.

These three popped into my mind immediately:

Tenjou Tenge
Fate/Stay Night
Kuroshitsuji

Do you realize Natsume Yuujinchou is based on a manga that has absolutely no romance? They can't just put any romance in it. Also for me Natsume Yuujinchou is a masterpiece and I don't think that any romance in it would do any good for it.

An opinion is an opinion but I strongly disagree I love the anime itself but I felt like there could be more if they redid it and added romance there could be more interesting and funny

1. Rurouni Kenshin... PLEASE... just animate the damn Jinchuu Arc... That is all I am asking for...

2. Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel Route. Yeah, the original anime is okay, but the Fate Route is easily the weakest route overall. While UBW movie was a hyper-speed retelling that did a pretty crappy job of explaining what was going on. So third time is a charm. Make a full anime series following the HF Route. Would be awesome.

3. Soul Eater. YESYESYESYES! Follow the manga directly! This can be done! Studio Bones did both FMA and FMA:B. They also did the Soul Eater anime! There will be no excuse to NOT do this! Especially with how popular Soul Eater has been getting the last few years.

I second this. As one of the five people who actually owns all of the manga, I have to say that a series (or OAV) that has everything that manga does would be fantastic.

Yes, I do understand that was your opinion but I just had to say that

Am I out of line in saying that we could use a version of Evangelion that actually follows the manga? It is one of the few manga series that came after the anime that I can say that was truly better than the anime. Shinji isn't as cowardly, Asuka is even more of a bad ass, many of the angel fights are much more exciting, and the series is much easier to follow as a whole than NGE, EoE and RoE. I know we are getting Rebuild right now, but Rebuild follows its own storyline that is separate from both NGE and the manga, and I still than the manga is better than both.

*brofist*

Well said. I'd almost forgotten how long it's been since that anime was released.

Along the same lines: I also wouldn't mind a new Speed Grapher. I really like that character designer (see: Fire Emblem: Awakening), and HD would do him proud.


Out of curiosity, are you part of the Bro Army, too?
