Adventure Time ZX is a 2016 reboot of Shroob12's Adventure Time ZX TV series based on the comic-book. It is created by The John Studios, collaborating with TMS Entertainment, aired on Cartoon Network Japan and America in August 5, 2016. Instead of being half-adventure, half-comedy, it takes influences from Record of Lodoss War, Slayers, and Attack on Titan. It also addresses problems that the original had, such as pointless plot points, randomized characters that dosen't fit well and chapters that makes no sense, so it was rebranded as a sequel to Adventure Time.
