Lets take a shit anime/manga and make it good by replacing the MC and switching them with a side character.
>The manga/anime is now named Kakashi
>every chapter is Kakashi traveling to different countries on Jounin missions
>sill has his sharingan to copy other ninjas jutsus giving it a Megaman twist
>Anbu are given more importance and not just generic canon fodder since they're the closest thing to real ninjas
>Anko and Shizune are his love interests and get more screentime
>Team 7 still exist but are just minor characters and get killed offscreen later in the series
>on his downtime Kakashi reads his sex novella and bros it up with Jiraiya and Asuma
When Eren gets eaten during Attack on Titan he genuinely gets killed off. Narrative focus shifts to Armin who becomes more of a badass over the course of the series, now determined not to yet Eren's sacrifice be in vain.
SnK without Eren is like Code Geass without Lelouch. It just doesn't work.
I'm betting most people on /a/ would argue that Code Geass doesn't work even with - and maybe even because of - Lelouch.
Eren getting genuinely killed off at that bit would imply that the "Titan's are actually piloted by people" twist never happens, meaning it would be a very different show anyway.
A better one
Nah, they still would have found a way to make it fucking retarded
Bullshit, both Eren and Armin are horrible characters, even Jean would make a better MC.
>Series now is how to control shonen wars while being in the shadows
>psycological wars with the other side's strategist
>with your average Kuboing
>Kona is the new MC and the anime is named Gunvarrel's legacy
>Focused on the disappearance of Kona's mom and her desperate attempts of finding her afterwards
>Only one episode to sum up the whole R;N shit
>Season 1 ends a few episodes after everything that happened
>Season 2 shows how she gets a better man than the retarded MC and the creation and education of an AI that she will treat as her own child
>The show ends with AI ruling humans peacefuly as a divinity
Admit it /a/, you'd still be watching Naruto if Shikamaru was the MC.
You sure? Eren is such an unlikeable character I personally wouldn't have minded it one bit if he got killed off early on in the series. It evolved into an Oprah show afterwards just because everyone got them nice Titan powers. Which is absolutely lame.
We remove Ichika and replace him with his sister.
You just made it into a shitty version of TTGL
>implying Eren could ever be like Kamina, or Armin like Simon.
Nigga please go.
Are you imagining something really genre aware?
Do you control shonen wars by making use of shonen cliches?
Shikamaru a shit.
Rock Lee should be the MC.
This one is hard
>Add actually interesting characters
>Don't make 500 episodes of filler
>Make meaningful character development happen
>Don't adopt the "Monster of the episode" formula
>switch it so Jean was the one who was with Eren that day
>he would have a similar breakdown as Armin did since he didn't even want to be out there
>despite the shit he gave him, Eren gives his life to save Jean
>Jean new main protagonist
I would watch meta-shonen wars.
>Kill la Kill is now wholly about Sensei fighting the oppression
>70% of time he's wholly naked
>the rest is spent incognito
Not that I think it's bad right now.
Replace main dude with Sunohara, and his autistic gf with Tomoya.
The idea of faggot turning in to a badass ins't original, but that don't mean that it needs a kamina clone because is a TTGL clone. Not everything is a TTGL copy, and even if is, it don't mean to be exactly like, following a strict formula.
Anyway, SnK would be better with eren dying and the focus shifthing to someone else, Mikasa, Jean, whatever.
Clannad as is from Akio's perspective. We see him raise Nagisa and Ushio, and we see Tomoya during the timeskip avoid his daughter. Then we see Akio and Sanae after the original ending.
Neon Genesis Gendo
>My fucking son won't pilot this robot
>Fuck him, I'm piloting it
>24 episodes of Gendo fucking shit up
>Banging Rei, Misato and Askua on the side
>Angels cry like little bitches
>Disowns Shinji, has him sent to boarding school
>Homolust killed on sight
>EoE is him becoming a god by duct taping reis together
I would actually watch it if it was like this
I actually like the original series, but NGG would be the best thing ever
Holy fuck stop it please.
>Not bro-ing it up with Gai
>Sword Art Online
It follows the adventures of Klein and his guild as they work their way up the ranks. Some politics, a la Log Horizon, though action is still the focus of the show. Emphasis on cooperation and strategy. Alternatively, Agil or one of the girls could work just as well. Instead of mustache-twirling Laughing Coffin, the main antagonists (aside from Kayaba, of course) would be guys like Kibaou who have disagreements with how the leads are handling things.
Meanwhile, the antisocial tryhard edgemaster with a preference for black dies early on for his puzzling decision to try soloing in an MMO permadeath game.
From the point of view of that crazy soldier dude.
He's part of an SCP like organization and has to hunt down and kill the monster of the week.
Either or, I would still be reading Naruto
>Meanwhile, the antisocial tryhard edgemaster with a preference for black dies early on for his puzzling decision to try soloing in an MMO permadeath game.
Wasn't there a spin off with him?
yes, and it was fucking awesome
I'd watch it. Certainly was why I didn't like SAO, the soloing and acquiring some special power no one has. Also why I like Log Horizon since it's much more true to its MMO heritage.
Admittedly, a lot of people do solo, but that's only because MMO's has been causalized too damn much. Nothing wrong with being able to have solo options but goddamn, end game should mostly be about groups and raids.
I'll just stop before going further.
I thought naruto was a good anime, but then i read your coment and realised how much better it could be (except for shippuden, that's when the anime gets good)
Anko is hot af. Only Hinata becomes more best girl with time.
Fairy tail MC is now Freed. Now fights are extremely tactical and with no asspulls at all. Also,him beating villains that are far stronger than him is justified,since his script magic is very powerful.
Too bad that it would become really gay.
Polite advice to lurk more before posting.
>actually catching them all
>idk, maybe winning the league?
But Kirito still participated in all boss battles, and major raids.
Not that the anime covered that. So meh.
That is the plot of Pokemon Adventures though.
is Atack on Titan worth watching?
Knew I forgot someone though Kakashi mostly finds Gai to be annoying. I see them having the occasional team up or fight since they're rivals.
Ah, true, forgot about that. I still would have preferred some focus on team fighting and such.
It would be more like JoJo so yes.
Except kishimoto can't strategize for shit.
And Adventures is infinitely better than the anime, isn't it?
I would watch that, provided the filler was Kakashi dreaming about different chapters in his sex books.
>Replace Ash with Red
>Red bangs Misty
>Red captures Mewtwo
>Every climatic scene/fight is a different remix of his final boss theme
Well, people who can struggle through it tell me that? And who actually care about Pokemon?
I am not these people.
Coppelion is now about Grenade-kun doing tactical things.
Asides from the third and last one, Isn't that what happens in that Pokemon Origins? Sure it's 4 episodes but still
It's a manga. Also there's Origins if you want to watch an anime that is more like the original games, protagonist actually catches all 150 by the end.
further proof that if he was the MC of the main series, it would actually be watchable
I'm still going to assume he absorbed his Dad's Code. I just can't believe that Orange would accept his actions if they resulted in his death.
Neon Genesis Evangelion: Protagonist is now Gendo Ikari. He decides after the death of his wife to take good care of Shinji, since it's the only thing of her he has left. Only crazy people would clone their wife in order to ressurrect her in order to be with her again.
I wish it was a full series.
>let's exchange asspulls for plot armor, it will make it better.
It should be about Gildarts and his adventures in foreign countries, fighting dragons and other continents' mages (reminder that the whole series until now is only in magnolia).
Well Gendo is crazy.
Also that would be a boring anime.
why was origins only 4 episodes ;_;
>Karate Shoukushi Kohinata Minoru
>Pedro as MC
>Goes around raping boys all the way
But that pic is stupid. No one should be crying over Lelouch because he's alive
Because they don't want to admit that it would completely eclipse every other season they've ever done and the MC would actually win leagues
He would, he was that loyal
That would be like replacing Kaiji with Akagi.
He blows up the sisters the moment they turn rogue, right? If so then the series is saved.
And now, anime is saved
Blows up Kenshiro and puts a bullet in Misaka's head.
He would, he was that loyal.
>Its now about chad
>Chad the stoic soft spoken highschooler has no problem coming to terms with his unusual hollow powers and remains levelheaded through out his trips with his friends through soul society and mexico. In his free time chad likes to play guitar, listen to music and play with the little foreign kids after school
>Show revolves around Chad being a main nigga, and helping his friends kill hollows and move furniture.
Imagine IS with 8man instead of Ichitard
>doesn't bro up with gai
I would watch Nigga Chad all day if that was the real show.
For extra points he would still wear all of Medaka's outfits.
>I'm betting most people on /a/ would argue that Code Geass doesn't work even with - and maybe even because of - Lelouch.
You would lose that bet. Hard.
