The 1980s were a crazy time when it came to the world of pop culture, giving us some of the most insane movies and television series that were ever created, and anime fans recently were asked what manga series that were created during this decade they would like to see be given an anime reboot. With the likes of Fist Of The North Star, Slam Dunk, Gun Smith Cats, and more, there definitely are a number of franchises to choose from when it comes to translating properties from the manga format to an animated television series or movie!
