I'm sure there are a ton of shitty copycats of shows that were so bad nobody ever bothered subbing them and nobody will ever license, but for popular stuff I'd say Fairy Tail is the biggest no shame about it ripoff of a series I've seen.

@sickVisionz:

As a Fairy Tail fan, I object your accusation of Fairy Tail being a One Piece rip-off!

Nah, just kidding. There is one manga series copying Fairy Tail. Have you heard of Buster Keel!? The similarities between One Piece and Fairy Tail are less subtle than if you compared Buster Keel to Fairy Tail. In Fairy Tail's case, there's no direct link between the characters, but only the overall idea and story line mirrors One Piece.

I was going to do a blog for the community, but you got me all hyped up. I went ahead and created the blog.

@DBZ_universe: Awesome Gohan avatar!

There are many rip-offs of one another. The comic world there are tons. You have the archetype and then the followers of its kind. Just look at the many harem series. It's basically the same with a minor difference in plot.

Nope. They aren't even similar except some techniques, transformations and characters...

I'm pretty sure Ninjas and Aliens have nothing related to each other.

The worst one by far that I have come across is a rip off of Bleach. Not to diss the man's name but just look up.... Nick Simmons. I didn't put a link up because Im not trying to host other sites.

I think he did that as a tribute to Evangelion. The anime Aquarion of the otherhand, is suspisiously similar to Evangelion in its concept.

@KingOfAsh: No seriously, Liefeld copies a lot of his work. My guess is he did steal it. I just don't know what the comic is that it's from.

@Destinyheroknight: @taichokage:

It's the first time I heard of the guy. I look it up, and it was a big rip off.

I got your back, Taichokage. I also found some other works he copied off besides Bleach. I found a Deadman Wonderland one, and I'm not sure what the third image is referring to. I'm not familiar with that anime.

Gia wrote an article on it back in 2010 (for those who haven't heard of the guy).
