@takashichea: I remember the Kenpachi rip off dude... I thought that was funny. And it looks like he also has the same attitude as Ken-chan.

@DBZ_universe:

Oh, my bad.

When I look at the comics, I thought it was a parody comic. It didn't look real, and it reminded me of Grim Tales of Down Below except less cartoony.

@waybig1010101:

I was thinking something else, but it kudos to for pointing it out. It was my first time seeing the man's work, and how much similarities it had to Bleach and other series.

@DBZ_universe:

You're talking about Grim Tales From Down Below?

Unlike Nick Simmons' Incarnate work, this is a fan homage to the series with a different spin. I don't think they sell their work.

I heard of the series from when I got curious about his Twitter Profile image. It was a good series but mind numbing because you got tons of characters from different shows. I stop reading it afterwards.

@takashichea: Yeah. Grim Tales from Down Below borrowed heavily on various Cartoon Network/Nick series for it's story. Another one is the dark, edgy PPG spin-off that the team at SNAFU did (2004-2010?). See below (example):

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

I didn't put a link up because Im not trying to host other sites.

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).

Here are some shots for folks here.

It's Crow of Deadman Wonderland!

It's Kenpachi and Ichigo (Bleach)

It's some babe I don't know

Oh Incarnate, the worst rip off in recent years.

Is pretty bad.

That is bad. But dig into Incarante more. I think it reigns supreme for the time being. It was so bad that it reached Kubo's ears and Simmons' serialization was cancelled.

I forgot the name of this manga but it has an anime adaption and it was a blatant rip off of Shaft's Bakemonogatari

It was about some dude who was obsessed with zombies and he meets a girl who dies and he resurrects her as a zombie

@Saladking:

Was it a kickstarter project?

@waybig1010101: @cosmicdude:

I forgot to reply to the guys who quoted me. There was another rip-off, but it never made it through.

@takashichea:

No it was done by an actual studio and I just found it. It's called Sankarea.

But really. Bleach is InuYasha plus Yu Yu Hakusho.

@Whats_out_the_bag: @katmic: just because there are similar in some things does not make it a rip off also those shows probably have some things that was from something else. If you think it's easy to come up with something completely original I would like to hear from both of you

@SMXLR8:

ROFL. To use the argument, if it's so easy how about you do so. I've made original stories all the time. It's EASY to make an original concept, the hard part is the execution.

Now to justify, rather these series got ripped off or were simply being praised. If it was simply a praise, that's more like Goku and Naruto. Hey I have blond hair and wear organe, just like you Goku!!!!

Bleach even as ARCS that are simply a copy of YYH. Could that be because they, both share the same director could be. But other than this random arc, we see many similarities with these series.

Do we have to look at the characters? Similar abilities? The series goes from being inspired to down right coping either InuYasha or Yu Yu Hakusho.

@Whats_out_the_bag: No matter how "original" you think your stories are there will be some thing that someone would say reminds them of something else , so it's not easy
