@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

An anime or manga or any story of any kind doesn't have to be original to be different. There are many series about kids with orangish hair that can see ghosts and even go on to fight spirit based enemies which you would never connect to bleach. there are also tons of shows about ninjas with super abilities which you cannot even begin to connect to Naruto. something doesn't need to be original to be different. Just look at madoka magica and sailor moon. madoka is not original in its ideas but it is most definitely not a ripoff of sailor moon.

@SMXLR8: It's very simple to make something different. At least for me. Just simple don't try to copy anything, think outside of the box. There's MANY MANY stories that don't copy. Being similar is bond to happen, which I don't mind. But copying is different, coping is barely changing anything, and simply living the entire plot and being in tact. Bleach copes. And you can excuse that with... well it's hard to make a story, so that means It's now justifiable to copy someone else's thought or idea.

If they took one thing from YYH, It would simply be either similarity or inspiration. Kind of like FMA and InuYasha having some similar aspirated traits ( Which it's common knowledge she's a big fan). We can see one or two minor similarities, but other than that they aren't the same at all. Bleach simply called it something else and left all of the original creators finger prints on it. This thread is simply to point out "In your face Ripoffs" ( A joke really).

Most debated case: Lion King and Kimba the White Lion.

@Dream:

That bring me back when I was a kid, I remember when I first saw Kimba. It was a preview at the end of a Ranma 1/2 or Pokemon VHS, and I blindly call it a rip off to Lion King

But, I can't be mad at the Lion King. it bring me one of the best Villains song :)

So, it get a pass from me

@Destinyheroknight: I meant Lion King being a Kimba ripoff. Kimba's been around since the 1960s.

@Dream:

I know, I was giving you my thoughts when I first saw Kimba as a kid

That why I say I forgive Lion King, because of that song :)

What's wrong with that? Folks just want to do it for fun. Agreed with What's out of the Bag and Katmic on their arguments.
