  1. Instead of making new stuff that can’t guarantee it being successful just remake Tokyo Ghoul damit it’s would be better than many other anime no Scratch that Top 3 Anime out there if they adapt it properly and have a good animation

      1. Completely… Tokyo Ghoul is a great anime but its good enough as it is… why make it again when it’s gonna be basically the same and we don’t care for that… if you want to watch Tokyo Ghoul then go watch it again you don’t need a remake of it… new is always better

  2. I think it would be great cause the character designs will be great and also im a fan of sword art online.But i don’t like the fact the Main character is not overpowered.Just opinions
