Top 10 Anime That Deserve a Reboot

HunterXHunter, Hajime no Ippo, Fullmetal Alchemist...these series have been lucky enough to get a faitfhul, if not superior reboot to their previous adaptions. What series do you believe also deserve a reboot? A long-running one with too much filler? A poor quality adaption? An unfaithful adaption? Vote!

The Top Ten

1 Tokyo Ghoul Tokyo Ghoul

Sure, the anime boosted its manga sales to the point of it being the 4th best selling series of 2014 and will undoubtedly be within top 10 this year, as well as it being one of the best selling series in Western countries... but it still didn't give it the justice it deserves.

Anime-only watchers who are stubborn to try manga will never get to see its meaningful, well-written, and complex story

Haters that came from the anime who then decide to read the manga can never be able to genuinely give it a chance and now call it an overrated, a wannabe seinen series, among other blind hate

If it sold that much despite having a flawed anime, imagine how much a perfect adaption would have helped its popularity. But that will never happen, even with a reboot... haters tend to be too close-minded to witness the real, rich story objectively. But a reboot would help the ones who ARE open-minded, as well as giving anime-only watchers a gateway for them to see it without reading ...more - Stopthehipsterhate

This can get a reboot, it was great, but this shouldn't be number one for reasons, First of all, it wasn't the most powerful anime, it didn't have the strongest development, if you're looking for the best, though not most popular anime, then it's Gurren Lagann, Simon can beat the universe with one hand in Gurren Lagann.

Season 2 sucks. Make Tokyo Ghoul a big anime.

As a manga reader, the anime adaptation really pissed me off.

This & Deadman Wonderland needs a reboot.

2 Deadman Wonderland Deadman Wonderland

Why did it have to end on a cliffhanger? All we got was an OVA and that was about it. If only this were more popular in Japan it would have kept going.

I really want a Season 2. Come on, don't stop at a cliffhanger while things were starting to get good, Woodpecker! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

More like a season 2 not a rebbot. If they EVER make ONE. - BM55

3 One Piece One Piece One Piece is a manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. The manga has been adapted into an original video animation (OVA) produced by Production I.G in 1998, and an anime series produced by Toei Animation, which began broadcasting in Japan in 1999 and has aired 749 episodes to date.

Better than Tokyo Ghoul, and it didn't end, it's still there, and very popular, but still not the best, That would go to Gurren Lagann, which has universe sized characters raping universes in less than a millionth of a second.

4 Soul Eater Soul Eater Soul Eater is an anime series directed by Takuya Igarashi and produced by Bones, Aniplex, Dentsu, Media Factory, and TV Tokyo, which adapts the Soul Eater manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Ohkubo.

I think Soul Eater need something like Sailor Moon Crystal. I mean a reboot which is more similar to the Manga.

This anime had such a bad ending. This definitely should get a reboot superior to the original.

I think a good title for a Soul Eater reboot that I heard would be Soul Eater: Resonance. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Needs one bad

5 Naruto Naruto Naruto is an anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. The manga was later adapted into a television anime, which was produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex. It premiered across Japan on the terrestrial TV Tokyo and other TX Network stations on October 3, 2002. The first series more.

Very popular, but not the best, it's very good and should deserve a reboot, but it doesn't get first place, because the characters aren't anywhere near as strong as those of Gurren Lagann, which was less popular somehow, Those characters can outgrow and outpower the whole universe.

6 Akame ga Kill Akame ga Kill

The ending was pointless. I heard about a remake though, so I hope it happens. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

7 Bleach Bleach

A few episodes are good

8 Berserk Berserk Berserk, also known as Sword-Wind Chronicle Berserk, is a Japanese anime television series that aired from 1997 to 1998. An adaptation of the manga Berserk, it comprises 25 half-hour episodes produced by Oriental Light and Magic and first aired on Nippon TV.

Its mother f-ing berserk, it needs to catch up to its manga counterpart, and at least don't end on another gross cliffhanger


Berserl should be fully adapter no filler needed(after all the series has 350 chapters and they are super long chapter like. 70pages).
Thr trboot was bad it needs a full reboot

9 Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt

I want to know if Panty lives and what happens to Stocking!

Something is going to be announced on December 16th...

10 D.Gray-Man

The Newcomers

? Gokudo the Adventurer
? Pokemon: XYZ

I hate the Sun and Moon anime! They should make a Pokemon Z instead of Sun and Moon so we can still see the best season in action!

The Contenders

11 Katekyo Hitman Reborn

THANK YOU! no one gives this show the credit it deserves. I mean I get, tsuna is so annoying (when he's not in hyper dying will mode) but I loved all the characters and it really needs to be brought back so I can see if tsuna actually assumes the role of boss

12 Elfen Lied Elfen Lied

The ending wa pointless + The manga has more than 100 chapters

13 Beelzebub
14 Gurren Lagann Gurren Lagann Gurren Lagann, known in Japan as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, is an anime series animated by Gainax and co-produced by Aniplex and Konami. It was also directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and written by veteran playwright Kazuki Nakashima.

Gurren lagann needs to come BACK NOWW.

15 Ouran High School Host Club Ouran High School Host Club Ouran High School Host Club is a manga series by Bisco Hatori, serialized in Hakusensha's LaLa magazine between the September 2002 and November 2010 issues. The manga has been adapted into a series of audio dramas, an animated television series directed by Takuya Igarashi and produced by Bones, a Japanese more.

Host Club definitely needs a reboot to tell the whole story from the manga. There was so much left out and too many banana slipping on scenes. The plot and characters were just starting to develop when it ended! It's so unfinished and it has the popularity and humor to deserve another go! - NerdBunny

16 No Game No Life No Game No Life
17 Blue Exorcist Blue Exorcist Blue Exorcist is an anime series directed by Tensai Okamura and produced by A-1 Pictures, which adapts the Blue Exorcist manga written and illustrated by Kazue Kato.

It's getting a second season soon!

18 Shaman King
19 Black Butler Black Butler Black Butler is a Japanese anime television series produced by A-1 Pictures and premiered in October, 2008.

I know Book of Circus and Book of Murder were the reboots (I think. If they are called Season 3 then why do they have nothing to do with the last two seasons? ), but it would have made sense if they had rebooted the ENTIRE SERIES from scratch.

20 Inuyasha Inuyasha InuYasha is a manga franchise created by Rumiko Takahashi. It was adapted into two anime television series produced by Sunrise. The first was broadcast for 167 episodes on Yomiuri TV in Japan from October 16, 2000 until September 13, 2004. The second series, called Inuyasha: The Final Act, began airing more.

Inuyashaaa! Just make it all one series with better animation and take out the bad filler. I know the actual manga had filler esc chapters but I still loved them, just the anime filler, they were pointless
