The poll question pretty much says it all. LET THE VOTING COMMENCE!

Also, please post explaining why you chose "yes" or "no".

I choose Yes because the original anime never got the Jinchuu arc (minus the OVA that had it but with different animation). Also there's SO much that needs fixed.

1. NO anime only characters!
2. ALL manga characters return
3. NO fillers (why even have it since it's been so long since the manga ended?)
4. NO pink kimono on Kenshin. It MUST be red!
5. Better animation studio
6. Better director
7. Soundtrack from the original anime stay the same
8. Better openings and endings
9. Can have at least one anime film if necessary, but must be non-canon
10. ALL manga arcs INCLUDING Jinchuu and Hokkaido animated
11. Better English dub voices. Also, VIZ Media needs to rescue this franchise and acquire the license for the anime and the anime movie since they have the manga


That's all I can think of at the moment. What do you guys think? Is there anything I've missed or forgotten about?

A new anime with no filler that adapts all the arcs is what I've wanted for years. Like Flame of Recca, I find it odd that it never got a full adaption.

I agree. I really have been hoping that with each new announcement about RK that we'd get this new anime with no fillers that adapts all the arcs. Japan has been avoiding Jinchuu like it's the spawn of Satan and who knows how they will treat Hokkaido. :/

I remember Flame of Recca, because I watched a little of I think the first episode, but never got around to finishing it, or the rest of the anime series. Is Flame of Recca still available in English so that if ever I or anyone else is interested, we can buy it? Just curious. ^^

Yes, I think Flame of Recca should get a full adaption, and maybe Yu Yu Hakusho as well (unless the manga really was fully adapted into the anime, but I keep thinking they didn't finish it).

Flame of Recca's manga is available digitally. The anime is here on CR. The original anime only covers the first 16 volumes (out of 33), cuts out a lot of the fun and humor, and is just bland. It deserves a proper anime.

Yu Yu Hakusho was fully adapted. The final arc was actually expanded on and improved in the anime.

But yeah, Rurouni Kenshin would be great. It would be kind of lame if they made a Hokkaido anime adaption while skipping a whole arc in the story. The best thing to do would be to start the anime over.

Oh ok, I wondered about that. Yes, I agree, Flame of Recca needs to have a reboot/remake as well. It would be cool of both RK and FOR got their reboot/remake and aired back to back. TWICE THE 90s AWESOMENESS :3

Oh ok, I wasn't sure about YYH. That's good that they were able to finish the manga in anime form and that its final arc was improved in the anime. :)

I fully agree with that. Just animating Hokkaido would make no sense because you'd be skipping a whole arc, so yes it's better to start the anime over.

It's one of my dreams to see a Kenshin reboot or remake just like they did with Fullmetal Alchemist and Hunter x Hunter. It's a shame that the anime never adapted the last parts of the manga, the animation in the show was excellent for the time it was released, even more so considering that it was a pretty long series. A lot of classic shows like Kenshin need a second chance. I'd love to see a new Trigun anime as well.

I thought the animation was ok, but I didn't like the random live action shots they used sometimes, especially toward the end of the series. Another minor issue I had was when they would mess up the characters' designs in some scenes and never fixed them. For example, in the Sanosuke VS Anji fight, there's a scene where Kenshin is talking to Anji. You can see Sanosuke in the background but his face is all messed up like the animators got lazy or something when they were drawing him. Also there's some openings and endings that reuse clips from the episodes instead of creating new ones.

But yeah, other than those minor things, I agree that the animation for that time was actually good. Hopefully, if ever there's a remake, that the animation will improve so much.

I don't even need a reboot of the first part of the series. Just having Jinchuu animated and getting the due it deserves would be fine with me.

Although, if this is an anime reboot, maybe it needs to be in the Anime section.

The problem is though that it's been years since the manga and original anime came out and I don't know if the anime is even on TV anymore. Not many people may know this series at all. That's why I thought a reboot/remake would be better so that new fans can enjoy the anime and hopefully they'll read the manga too, and hopefully the older fans like us here in this thread will enjoy it just the same as the original anime and the manga. :)


I wondered if I had this thread in the wrong section or not, but I wasn't sure. Maybe a mod or admin might have a better idea? :/

I doubt the anime is on TV anymore, since it's from years and years ago. I think most anime fans would have at least heard of RuroKen, though. It was one of the most popular manga of its time, if I'm not mistaken. And they've made several things since then including new movies/retellings of Shishio arc and the live actions. I think if RuroKen were to get a reboot, though, it would involve OVAs, since I doubt they'd make a brand-spanking new anime from a series that ended in the 90s. Anime is usually created to sell the original product, which I have to guess is out of print at this point.

Definitely should happen. Would purchase the shit out of a nice anime remake for it.

I won all the manga volumes for a reason.

I figured since it's an older anime series. True, and I agree. Well, if they do like how HunterXHunter and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood was done, I think it could work. But, I'm not a director or producer so I don't know what would work, and I don't live in Japan so I don't know how they do things there :P

I would buy all the DVDs that came out for the new anime, since I already own the DVDs for the original anime and all 9 VIZBig volumes

Well, the biggest differences between RuroKen to FMA:B and HxH 2011 is that Brotherhood and HxH 2011 both ran while their manga series were still in circulation (HxH still is, though on hiatus, and FMA:B ended about a month after the manga finished). RuroKen would be having an anime created over 15 years since its original serialization. The closest thing to that is probably DB Super, but DB is in a class by itself in terms of popularity, so it's probably not a viable comparison.

Yeah, that's true. But remember Sailor Moon Crystal? It was made WAY after the Sailor Moon manga was finished, and I think it's a reboot/remake of the original Sailor Moon anime, but I might be wrong. And look at DB Kai & Super. Both were made WAY after the manga ended and from what I could tell were remakes of arcs of the anime and manga but with newer animation, but again I could be wrong.

If nothing else, Japan could do like a reissue of the manga but in volumes and do reruns of the original anime to see if any newer fans will like it before trying the reboot/remake. Or do whatever Sailor Moon and DB did.

There's also JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Parasyte, and Ushio & Tora which got new anime, and the fact that Rurouni Kenshin is getting a new manga soon.

Now might be the best time to make a new anime.
