Anime that could really go for a remake right about now

Postby Naga Inverse on Thu Sep 06, 2007 12:30 pm

It seems that tis the season of remake doesn't it? Eva's getting remade into movies, a revision of the old series for old and new fans alike; What I want to know what anime do YOU think really really, and I do mean really is in the need as in it should be given a remake for? My first pic would be dragon ball Z, second would be Slayers followed by Devilman Lady.

If they did it well and with higher production values, the original Vampire Princess Miyu OVAs.

But in general, I say leave stuff alone. Eva is already Eva and doesn't need to be remade. DBZ is a load of crap and the last thing anyone needs is more of it.

I think this thread might be better suited in the Keenime forum.

Avatar's being live-actioned and that would be my choice, too. I'd love to see the water and earth bending in live action on the big screen.

Harry Potter actually gave us a taste of what water bending would look like.

Oh, and what exactly could they improve about Akira? It's about the best anime ever made already. Plus it would suck if it lost it's great 80s fashion sense.

Then why is that where all your first posts are at?

Edit: Boy is my face red. I thought those were Keenime, but it's apparently somebody's comic forum.

I don't really see why shows and movies have to be remade in general. Isn't a re-release enough?

(Movies based from books don't count.)

Well, sometimes the technology or budget can be improved upon. I mean, imagine if they'd made a LOTR movie back in the 60s... It just seems like it wouldn't be as cool as what we can do these days.

Yeah, they did make a LOTR series of movies Back In The Day (the 70's I guess), and they weren't that good. So yeah, making new LOTR movies was good. However, I believe I already said that movies based on books don't count. :D I suppose that argument could be applied to other stories though, in the cases where the studio/producer/whatever was/were too ambitious. Like, I haven't seen The Last Starfighter, but I still know that if it was remade it could look a lot more realistic.
