My Top 5 Anime Series that should have a remake. What's series should be remade?

Since Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood ended a few years back. I started to think of anime that are either close to finishing r ongoing enough in the manga, or finished completely to warrant a remake. So here's my List of Anime that should have a Remake.



1. Baki The Grappler(2001)
The Anime was slpit into 2 series Baki The Grappler and Grappler Baki: Maximum tournament. I loved the fighting in this series and animation was ok. What makes this anime is the fights and the characters.


2. Deadman Wonderland (2011)
A Anime about a boy who gets framed for killing his classmates and sent to the infamous theme park prison, deadman wonderland. Anime was left in a cliffhanger and since the manga ended in 2013,why not make a remake.


3. Yu Yu Haskusho(1992)
Good series,its one of those series that even though the manga was still coming it actually ended. I wish this series had a few more OAV's to go with it or maybe a new series would be awesome with a new Spirit Detective, but anime is worth the watch.



4. Flame Of Recca(1997)
I dont even want to explain how awful the English dub was!(and this is coming from someone who loves watching dubbed anime) I still love this anime, people see it as a YuYu Hakusho clone(which it basically is), but its one of those anime that leaves you in a cliffhanger and plotholes galore.




5. Mobile Suit Gundam( 1979-1980)
The anime that gave birth to many mecha anime. I still have yet to watch this series, aside from being a gundam anime fan. Gundam series usually have a balance of action,drama and political issues interwined in it. if this had updated animation I bet it will bring a whole new generation of fans.

Neon Alley has given us anime fans Gargantia English Dubbed Streaming

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet is up on Neon Alley finally.finally. I've been waiting for this dub for a while and I plan to binge watch this. If you don't know what it is here's a little Synopsis:

In the distant future, mankind has taken to the stars and formed the Galactic Alliance of Humankind (人類銀河同盟 Jinrui Ginga Dōmei?). The Alliance is engaged in a perpetual war with a tentacled alien species known as the Hideauze (ヒディアーズ Hidiāzu?). 16-year-old Ensign Ledo is a soldier in the Galactic Alliance, piloting a Machine Caliber (マシンキャリバー Mashin Kyaribā?), an AI-automated, humanoid-shaped battle suit, which he refers to as 'Chamber'. 

 I've seen the first ep subbed when it premiered but dropped it cause I was watching other anime.I embedded the first episode dubbed. Tell me what you think of the dub. If you watched the series, what did you think of it?

So whats on your Manga Pull list?

My Make shift bookshelf is bare and its time to buy some manga. I have put together a pull list of the series that I want to acquire So here's my list:

Manga List

Fullmetal Alchemist Omnibus Volume 2-? (I own Volume 1 of the omnibus version and they are still being release 2 or three a year.)

Deadman Wonderland-Since this finished up recently I added onto my list of reading since the anime was left on a cliffhanger and probably wont see a season 2.

Naruto- What is it like 20+ Volumes or something more than that. I love this anime, been a fan since it debut in 2002 I believe. I've been reading it on Mangapanda.com but I want to own the manga since its something I will re-read over and over again.

Sword Art Online- I love this Light Novel,found out through watching the anime like always. The second arc of the series with the fairies wasn't all that great, but the Gun Gale Arc so far is intriguing and looks to be a masterpiece just like its light novel.

Tokyo Ghoul- I found out about this series a few weeks ago and have been watching the series. I hear that the manga is 10x better than the series, so I will add this to my pull list and hope it gets a U.S release soon.

others that are on my pull list: One Piece, BloodLad,Magi and Blue Exorcist and yes I've been watching these animes or have seen them and want to see how they differ thru the manga. So What's on your pull list?

Fan Perspective #1: Finding anime schedules

[caption id="attachment_1684" align="alignleft" width="300"]2014-07-10_2134 animecalendar.net One of the best places to find your anime schedules.[/caption]

When an anime series's episode goes on hiatus for a week, it irks me to see people who been around the community for a while say "where is this Anime and why hasn't it come out today" So I'm here to share some little enlightenment and tell you how to get this information.

Google it. If your a fan of a certain show you should know dates and times, If not use Wikipedia(although sometimes a unreliable source) can sometimes give you the answer. Also there are countless sites out there that have an anime calendar. Animecalendar.net is the best site when it comes to finding a schedule for your favorite anime and sync your favorite anime to your Google calendar and other means.

So do a Google search or try my ideas before asking when a show is coming back or why its on hiatus. Remember Google is your friend and animecalendar.net is your best friend.

I want to know your thoughts on this. Till the next Fan perspective. Watch tons of anime and be chill :)

Blog's new direction

Over the last few years I've been posting random anime posts with some writings I have.Over the new few weeks I will be taking a more organized approached to the blog. I want to try to spark discussion so some old posts will be deleted with exception to 2014 posts and some personal writings. I will also bring some Anime arc guides which is being revamped as we speak to help those fans wondering when and where arcs begin and the relevance to the some anime eps to manga chapters.

I have some other ideas to make this blog worth coming too but one thing at a time. so bare with me and enjoy visitng the blog and throw some of your suggestions into the comment section if you have any.
