In Anime industry we have seen many remakes of anime series, but this particular phenomenon is something that occurs very rarely (well not that rare). So today, I decided to make a list of Top 10 best anime series that should definitely deserve or get a remake, just like the other anime series got, and the list includes – Hunter x Hunter, Dragon Ball Z Kai, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and much more…
Note: The below list 0f “top 10 anime series that should definitely get a remake” is based on my personal preference and opinion. So if there is a particular anime that’s not on the list then be sure to mention it in the comment section below.
Top 10 best Anime Series that should definitely get a remake
Also before we began with the list be sure to remember that this list is not based on any kind of poll rankings or any kind of order. It’s just a randomly arranged list.
01. Akame Ga Kill
Akame Ga Kill comes first in my mind when I think of top 10 best anime series that should get a remake and the reason for that would probably be the “terrible anime adaptation” of the Manga. For people who watched this anime series without reading the manga, this anime would be “Okayish” or “Good” but for the people like me who were familiar with the Manga, this would be the most pathetic and terrible adaptation.
The manga takes a completely different route to the ending with many interesting fight scenes, scenarios, twist, and cliches, despite the fact that both Manga and Anime had similar ends. However, when you compare those two, you will find out that the Manga is much more interesting and engaging. I think that the anime was more focused on killing the characters as a part of their so-called “twist factor” but it resulted in the collapse of the anime series.
02. Dragon Ball Super
Just like how Dragon Ball Z got a remake of Dragon Ball Z Kai or Dragon Ball Kai. The newest anime addition to the Dragon Ball franchise, Dragon Ball Super also needs a remake. There’s is no difference in the story pattern of Dragon Ball Super Manga and Anime, but it’s not the story that needs to be remade, but it’s the fight sequences and scenarios that need a remake, because, they are completely different when compared Anime with Manga.
When it comes to Fight sequences and some scenarios things are more logically arranged and explained, which we don’t see in the Anime. For example: In the tournament between Universe 6 & Universe 7, Goku in Manga used SSJ God Red form and SSJ God Blue form simultaneously.
However, in Anime he used Kaioken on SSJ God Blue form. When you compared those two, of course, Anime version raises the hype level but in return, it turns the fight into the overpowered scenario, thus erasing the atmosphere of martial arts tournament. However, in Manga, the fight appears to be a lot more bearable and it had a martial arts tournament atmosphere around.
Although, this is just one single example, there are several different scenarios, which makes Manga more approachable when compared with the anime. Right now the anime feels nothing more except the lingering atmosphere of childhood nostalgia and this makes anime unsteady while the is manga more balanced. That’s why it’s at the second position in the list of top 10 best anime that definitely deserves a remake.
03. Rurouni Kenshin
Rurouni Kenshin or Samurai X whatever you may wanna call it you can call it, but we have to admit one thing, this anime series was quite great during the late 90s and it has the same popularity even now. But I think this anime needs a remake. Well, the Shishio arc, got a remake with modern animation quality but this anime as a whole needs a reboot, the reason is – The anime followed the Manga till Shishio arc, but after that, a major arc was not adapted.
I won’t reveal the spoilers but to be more frank with my words I will just say this – “It was a really important arc that will lay down the base for the relationship between Kaoru and Kenshin”. This was the first reason, and the second reason is – The action scenes are awesome and will even look great with modern animation. However, I don’t want them to censor blood because that add more feels to the anime. That’s why its 3rd on the list of “top 10 best Anime Series that should definitely get a remake.”
04. Hokuto no Ken
Hokuto no Ken got many special episodes and OVA animated with modern animation, however, it’s the anime that I want to definitely have a remake. Hokuto no Ken is the manliest classic anime series out there and even the action is good but the old animation doesn’t live up to the quality of the story and action scenes. I personally think that the modern animation will do more justice to the anime series.
And to prove the point you can watch the special episodes and OVA episodes and movies, and one of them is – “Hokuto no Ken ZERO Kenshiro Den”. Watch it and you will see how modern animation does justice to story and fight sequences and you will know that why this anime is known as epic. That’s the reason why it’s on the 4th rank in the list of – “top 10 best Anime Series that should definitely get a remake”.
05. Deadman Wonderland
Deadman Wonderland had an interesting plot but the anime didn’t completely adapt the story from the Manga. Why? maybe because of low sales but to be frank and serious, I want to see this anime completed!!. The protagonist of this anime gets trapped in a Jail because of false accusation of murdering his entire class.
And the anime & manga depicts the life of the protagonist in the Jail where everyone is declared dead. The manga is a lot deeper and I would love to see the anime adapt the complete story but guess it’s just a foolish dream of mine. That’s why its 5th on the list of “top 10 best Anime Series that should definitely get a remake”.
Yes the berserk anime definitely needs a reboot, the CGI animated version i.e Berserk 2016 was released last year but the animation and changes in the plot screwed the anime upside down. Well, it would be better if the anime was to be released in normal animation, and if followed the usual plot of the Manga then it would have been even better. But, yeah, animation studio won’t make the necessary changes. That’s why its 6th on the list of – “top 10 best Anime Series that should definitely get a remake”.
Claymore needs to have a reboot because of the same reason of “Deadman Wonderland” it didn’t adapt the complete story of the Manga and the story of the anime completely deviates from the actual story. Claymore could really be something else but given the pace of the story and the low popularity rate it didn’t get another season. Which is definitely sad. So this comes 7th on the list of “top 10 best Anime Series that should definitely get a remake”.
08. Ouran High School Host Club
Well, if you’re familiar with the story of Ouran High School Host Club after the anime, Well thanks to the original Manga. Then you know why this anime should receive a remake, don’t worry I won’t be revealing any spoilers of the story. But if you still not aware of the story after anime then you should at least take a look at it. So this comes 8th on the list of “top 10 best Anime Series that should definitely get a remake”.
09. Soul Eater
Soul Eater anime’s story is incomplete, Just like Deadman Wonderland, Claymore and Ouran High School Host Club. We never really got to see Soul becoming a death scythe, and we never really got to know anything about Maka and her past. Personally, the anime tries to explore lot more than its original source material, but there’s not enough room for it in the story, at some point, i felt that the story started loosing its traction and because of all these things I feel that Soul Eater anime should definitely deserve a reboot. So this comes 9th on the list of “top 10 best Anime Series that should definitely get a remake”.
10. Tokyo Ghoul
If you’re following the Tokyo Ghoul Manga then you know why I am adding this anime into this list. Basically, when you compare both Manga and Anime you will see that Anime made the story of Tokyo Ghoul like PG-13 Story. If only the anime would have followed the original source material, then the anime would have been a lot more gore and brutal. Deaths in the anime would be a lot more emotional and tear jerking and the plot would have been more consistently stronger, then the way it was depicted. So this comes 10th on the list of “top 10 best Anime Series that should definitely get a remake”.
Also, Bleach, Naruto, Naruto Shippuden and Katekyou Hitman Reborn are the anime series that should receive reboot along with these 10 anime and the reason for that – “Too Much Filler”.
