In an entertainment industry that has a nearly endless supply of amazing source material (manga, light novels, visual novels, etc.) it seems a shame to worry too much about getting shows remade. There's no doubt that some shows missed the mark or could have been better, but take it in stride and look for the next great thing.

Leave it as is, reboots usually tend to fail.

I would like to see a 1080p remaster of Cowboy Bebop though

Can you give some example of anime reboot failures?

The reboot of Hunter x Hunter seems to be doing quite well, and I don't recall seeing many (or any, personally) people saying the original Space Battleship Yamato series was better than the modern 2199 reboot.

No reboots please. New original series not adapted from print material would be preferable.


Find this hard to believe...

Very few anime are true to original written work as it is, if that wasn't true would you still think that way? Most, not all, that stick to the written works really show thru with quality.. the writers that make up deviated plots and fillers are just plain horrible.. id hate to see a series developed with no help from a pro mangaka..

No.

One anime that I'd like to see rebooted with a more serious/darker tone is Birdy the Mighty. I think that anime has potential to be great.

Edit: I rambled a hell of a lot, so just to cut it down:

There are plenty of excellent original anime written by people in the anime industry, including: Cowboy Bebop, Eden of the East, Haibane Renmei, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Now and Then, Here and There, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, Kyousougiga, Serial Experiments Lain, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, and Texhnolyze.

If anything, the lack of a preexisting fanbase means an original anime has to aim for even higher quality to convince publishers to invest due to the higher risk, while adaptations can be lackluster when their only goal is to appease an existing fanbase or generate additional revenue for existing multimedia (such as manga, light novels, games, etc.).

There's nothing magical about a mangaka's inspiration compared to someone writing a screenplay for an original anime; if anything the latter guy's job should be easier, since the mangaka is pressured into a hellishly demanding work schedule while someone working on an original anime has enough time in pre-production to create a holistic piece.

Gatchaman: Crowds was pretty good - not interested in the original anymore.

Crest/Banner of the Stars would make an awesome reboot.

I don't see any reason to reboot either of those. Neither of them are that old and both of them are fine the way they are.
I could see a second season for either one of them but a reboot? Nah.

Yet, despite that, we have:

Galilei Donna and, now, Wizard Barristers....

And Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, Beyond the Boundary and Coppelion. But they aimed for things, and I'll put up with them in exchange for ones like Kill La Kill, Kyousougiga, and Nagi no Asukara.

And it's not like adaptations are free of things like Pupa, Photo Kano and BlazBlue: Alter Memory.


I don't mean to argue that either side is better, just that both sides can be just as awesome.

If we're talking about reboots, I would sugest Mahou Sensei Negima.

I think if anything, they should make an OVA or two with Ed as an adult.
