Tuesday Otaku Debate: What would make a better remake? Trigun vs. Kenshin?


Last week we placed our votes down for the greatest anime of this season. That is hard to say with only two or so episodes out so far, but we will run with it. I’m really enjoying this season because there are a lot of great shows this time, not just a bunch of average shows. This is apparent in the votes as well; seeing how there isn’t only one runaway hit. Nevertheless, our winner this round is Eden of the East. It’s realistic, different, though at the same time familiar. To put it simply, it isn’t like any other anime.

Asura Cryin’: 1
Basquash!: 4
Dragon Ball Kai: 3
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood: 7
Hanasakeru Seishōnen: 1
Hayate no Gotoku!!: 1
Higashi no Eden: 12
K-ON!: 9
Saki: 1
Sengoku BASARA: 6
Senjō no Valkyria: 7
Shin Mazinger Shōgeki! Z-hen: 2

Take a look at this week’s Tuesday Otaku Debate after the jump.

We have three official remakes this season, Dragon Ball Kai, Shin Mazinger Z, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood; so remakes are quite the rage in Japan at the moment. One of the most important reasons why to remake an anime is if it had split itself from the manga’s story, like in FMA Brotherhood. So there is a slight chance that if a popular anime did deviate from the manga, that it could be remade to fix this issue; like Trigun or Rurouni Kenshin.

This is where this week’s battle comes in. Which anime would you rather have as a remake, Trigun or Rurouni Kenshin? Both shows deviated from the manga, and could use an animation upgrade. Most importantly, both series are loved by otaku, especially in America; meaning they will make lots of money.

It is also important to note that remaking any one of these series will bring back bad cosplay from each; especially Vash cosplay. *shudders*
