These 2 animes had great potentials but eventually mediocre. Eventually the Tokyo ghoul anime got even worse but Sao got a lot better in alicization. I have read the Tokyo ghoul manga and it was great. On the other hand for Sao's aincrad arc, I have read the progressive manga which I greatly enjoyed. So would you like these reboots if they are done?

Edit: About Sao, I'm just talking about the anime adaptation of progressive as it expands on the story of aincrad and shows us the world building a lot better. I'm not a hater and I think my high enough rating for it confirms it.

OH LAWD YES

I have been a huge fan of the tokyo ghoul manga for a long time, never really read the RE tho. So yes indeed i would love Tokyo Ghoul to get the FMA:B treatment. Hands down if they had done the manga justice, the anime could've been in MAL's top 10 because of the insane hype it generated back then.

On topic of SAO, for me I loved the first half of SAO. I just generally really like the isekai genre. The rest of SAO really soured me however, and I never really went beyond SAO II. Honestly, dont even want to give alicization a try. Idk but just have ptsd of lost potential. So indeed I think the whole aincrad arc should've been 50 eps honestly. SO much potential.

SAO was fast-paced, I wouldn't mind a longer version of it, but it's not necessary... which won't go for Tokyo Ghoul, where almost everybody hopes for a reboot of at least Re 1 and 2...

The arc needs to be longer. The Sao world is still totally foreign to us. Lores and character developing moments are there in progressive considering floor takes up a volume. I would enjoy it being animated. Believe me, everyone would the new Kirito. 😂

Sword Art Online did well enough with every its story, even more so considering they tie-in into a larger narrative of virtual reality, future technologies and A.I. development. You might not have liked it, but it does not make it any less valuable and well-executed. If you want a discussion you are welcome to bring actual arguments to this.
As for Tokyo Ghoul, there will be no reboot, as the story... tadaaaam, belongs to a single author. And he failed big time when he got depressed halfway through is series, twisting initial vision to the unknown extent. Tokyo Ghoul will forever be an example in the history of Japanese animation, of how tragic art-creating can turn out. As much as everyone regrets what happened, there is nothing that can be done about it and a reboot would only dishonour everyone concerned. Tokyo Ghoul was good when it lasted, and it was worth something despite the way it ended. All there is to it.

I understand you might have wanted to see more of the virtual world they created... but it was never in a focus. The whole point was not the world, but the people trapped there. How they reacted, how they fared, how they evolved. I can respect you wanting to see more of that unique and cruel world, but please do not anyhow implicate the SAO is bad because it did not turn out a meek "another world" with extensive, yet meaningless virtual world.

Tokyo Ghoul reboot could be done but under one condition. Yutaka Yamada is to take care of the soundtracks again.

If they get reboots i will personally commit sodoku and you should too.

Both are not good enough to deserve a reboot imo, i would maybe watch a TG one just cause it was the first mango i followed weekly.

People don't deserve such greatness as the Progressive. Just like HakoMari it should remain forever and always a novel. After mistreating my girl Asuna the world doesn't deserves to see her in one of her best forms.

Nope, I wouldn't wanna see resources being 'wasted' (sry if it sounds too mean) on reboots of these two anime.

The Tokyo Ghoul: re manga felt apart after Sui Ichida begin rushing the story, most likely due to his 'illness,' but it let to over a third to almost the half of Tokyo Ghouls' story to be underwhelming at best and awful at worst, therefore, before making a reboot of the anime, Ichida would've to rewrite half of the story which considering the effect it had on his condition I rather can renounce from,- better let him create a new, fresh title, which hopefully won't inflict similar drawbacks at the process of drawing.

In SAO's case, I don't see how this would be necessary, not like they won't do one in the future anyway, because money, but I don't see a real benefit from my perspective.
The anime is already very popular with more than enough people liking the serious, so for them, a 'reboot' isn't needed as much as they only want more SAO content. On the other hand, for people like myself, I don't see how progressive would be able to improve on the original anime in a meaningful way, to make me like the series, when even SAO's sequels weren't able to, which had the benefit of telling an entirely new story that was not bound by the 'mistakes' of the original story, at least to the same extent I'd expect progressive to be, so yeah, I find a reboot unnecessary.

Don't care anything about SAO. But Tokyo Ghoul obviously requires a 'Brotherhood' treatment.

Don't know it can grab an "absolute banger" opening like 'unravel', I wish.

The problem with SAO for me is Kirito. He is just boring and his personality is being op. There is nothing good about Kirito. He is just super 1 sided.

His progressive counterpart is very different. They changed the characters a lot in the novels and manga. I mean there was one panel in the manga in which Kirito was thinking something very deeply while doing a quest with Asuna and a female npc. When she asked him, he replied "I'm thinking about whom to marry between the 2 of you". Asuna was like "wtf!" and I was going ROFL. 🤣🤣

Sure, Sword Art Online deserves it. But a spin off would be better because that would be kinda going back in past to see the development. It's better to move forward but still a yes from me. As for tokyo ghoul the whole story was not for me.

Progressive is absolutely amazing, I’m loving the novels, I really want it to have an anime adaption. Considering Unital Ring is just started, to animate it is needed a lot of time, so Progressive could be the next part to have an anime adaptation in SAO franchise and it would be great!
About Tokyo Ghoul, I’m not interested in, so I’ll be indifferent to an eventually remake/reboot.

Underworld is actually better than the rest of the series, maybe because 98% Kirito and his bitch are not in there, lol.

Don't care for Tokyo Ghoul since it's garbage either way.

Don't know, the alternative ggo is also there. It might get a new season. But I'll greatly prefer progressive over it.

Probably that's the only good thing to come out of the anime

There's no way to really salvage SAO Season 1 without completely rewriting it and coming up with a new villain that doesn't feel cartoonishly evil but like an actual character.

More worldbuilding and the likes would be welcome, but as long as it all goes to shit as spectacularly as it did in the current version it wouldn't make much difference to the overall quality of SAO S1.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

Alternative is done by another studio, so it’s an independent project. I believe it’s not related to the other SAO series from A-1 Pictures’ point of view.

SAO is going to take a nap in the 2020s, is what I think.

Tokyo Ghoul is maybe cursed and I don't think anybody's gonna approach it, let alone touch it, for a very, very long time.

So, Kirito is still building a harem and wanting to fuck a npc. Progress indeed.

It's not a harem. He also has a lot of male friends who gets a lot of screentime. That panel was just for comedy and still Asuna does not like him. So he doesn't have any girl who likes him yet. Kirito is shown to be a fun loving dork and always ruining serious moments. The manga does have a lot of fan service though, which is not in the novel. I would like to read it but I'm more of a manga person. That's why I want an anime. The first and second boss fights are more epic than anything Sao season 1 produced.

Moreover, everyone has been given an interesting twist in personality. Asuna is shown as a clean freak and can do anything to get a bath done. Whenever someone addresses them as a couple they will shout out that they aren't. Agil has a lot of screentime. There's a new character, Argo who always teases kirito as she is the info broker. Most importantly she doesn't jump on kirito's dick and sees him as a little brother. Not to mention the development of each character so far has been great.

Definitely man. They made Kirito so interesting and likeable. Even his haters will love him if they watch progressive. Still kazuma will stay my favourite anime protagonist though.

I've been wanting a SAO Aincrad reboot for forever now. The fact that the arc was so short made zero sense, and with the mediocre writing and character development, I only thirsted for a better version of it. I don't care if they nearly completely changed what happens in the reboot (if it were to be made), but if they can just go back to their roots and actually make the Aincrad arc at least a full 24 episode season, instead of the perplexing 14 in the original Aincrad arc, and improve the writing and character development, it could possibly be one of my favorite shows of all time.

An Aincrad reboot has unbelievable potential if executed correctly.

The progressive is basically what you want. Given that unital ring has just started, it'll quite some time before season 4 releases. So they might actually release it in the next couple of years. It'll not be a 24 ep anime. Given that the novel takes up a volume for each floor, it's easily gonna be a 300 episode anime with many seasons.
