I was looking through Crunchyroll's catalogue, and I stumble across some shows that were not as good as they could have been. They either didn't meet expectations or were not able to properly use their source material. The shows cold have been amazing, but they just were not. This got me thinking. What shows do you feel deserve a second chance? (What shows need the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood treatment)

To be clear, this is not a thread about returning season of other shows. I want a third season of Spice and Wolf as much as the next person, but that show doesn't need to completely start from scratch.

My personal example is Pandora Hearts. I read the manga and I absolutely loved it. It was the first one I had ever read. Unfortunately, the show was ok but not amazing, while the anime original ending completely ruined the show for me. It just didn't do the source material enough justice. I would love it if the show could have a second shot to try again and possibly go from OK to amazing.

You can consider this post as a mention for every anime adaptation of a manga with a "read the manga" ending. You know, the kind that follows the story of a popular manga but can only get 1 or 2 cours so it just kind of stops, often anti-climactically and without tying up loose ends expecting you to just read the manga. Many anime, especially in the shonen genre, deserve a redux running through the full story of the manga, or the "Brotherhood Treatment" as I like to call it.

I want Oreimo redone with a good ending. No incest.

I just want them to finish Katekyo Hitman Reborn in anime form.

I really liked the Shimon Family and Representative Battle of the Rainbow Arcs, and it would be pretty awesome if they did that.

Plus I really wanna see my OTP in anime form.

Berserk 2016 big time. Just stop what you're doing and go back the drawing board.

I never read it but I hear Gantz was a terrible adaptation.

I know people want Claymore and Tokyo Ghoul to be redone. Gangsta. had a pretty weird adaptation as well. It'd have to be done by a different studio though since Manglobe is gone. There's also Soul Eater and any other Bones adaptation that strayed or didn't quite faithfully follow its source material. I don't care too much either way, at least for the moment.

I like the original Trigun, but I would love to see a faithful to the manga adaptation.

Claymore is the one that comes to my mind first. Considering that Berserk is my favorite manga, Claymore is the perfect alternative for a different story set in a very similar universe to the one seen in Berserk. The anime was pretty decent and I still like to rewatch it, but it needs to get the FMA Brotherhood treatment for sure, the Claymore manga is phenomenal imo.

And we could add all the anime adaptations that Studio Pierrot has screwed up, like Tokyo Ghoul and Twin Star Exorcists. The TG manga needs no introduction, but I've heard many good things about the Twin Star manga and it's such a shame to see the anime turned out to be the worst shonen action anime I've seen in a very long time

They should remake Princess Tutu and make the guys sexier.

Or just do a new thing with a 3M2F OT5 of magical ballet dancers, with sexier guys.

Dog & Scissors. I thought it was an enjoyable show until it got canceled before some hinted characters entered the scene.

If Tiger & Bunny ever got re-done with an animation upgrade I'd be over the moon. The series is fantastic but it suffered from random derp art and awkward movements when animated in their suits; they looked like robots in movement not people in constumes.

Occultic;Nine also would have faired better if they slowed down 1000%. Holy shit, it's not a race to tell a story guys. Ryouka's breasts could have calmed down a bit too.

And let's not forget now Soul Eater ended. Ugh. Would have been happier if the show ended before entering that final arc or even left it as a cliffhanger, anything was better than that.

Definitely World Trigger, the anime was such a disappointment, the animation was so bad at points and the whole thing was a bore to watch, plus it didn't even have any good OPs. I wouldn't even need a full adaptation, just a 25 episode season covering up to the end of the full scale invasion would be great if done by a good studio.
