I wonder if the anime industry as a whole is shifting becoming a lot more open to doing remakes and continuations of old works.
I've noticed that over the last few years we've seen series that most thought were concluded or over with getting sequels/continuations after 10+ years with nothing.>Code Geass movie>Full Metal Panic S4>Bleach anime
And now we're getting way more full on remakes too which was pretty unprecedented.>LogH>Sailor Moon Crystal>Shaman King>Akira
Kinda makes me excited to think that older shows that didn't get good treatment can be redeemed.
But it also comes with the dreaded thought that we'll get half-assed cash grabs the same way hollywood has done.
