Has anyone seen the preview for the new show on ABC 'Inhumans'? Has anyone noticed how similar it is to Fairy Tail? In the preview there is one character that seems almost identical to Fairy Tails 'Flare Corona'. What do you all think???

Inhuman characters were created in the early 1960s.........they predate fairy tail by decades.

I think I prefer Arnold spewing frost pun after frost pun over Gray's clothes shtick.

So.....the usual tropes associated with characters representing a given "element" of nature?

The Lord of The Rings also ripped off Harry Potter.





Fairy Tail is nowhere near as original as you think. Nothing wrong with not being "original", but...is a Google search too much to ask for?

]There are so many things wrong with EVERYTHING you said that I don't know where to start.

Okay, number 1; I did not say that Inhumans (which was created by Stan Lee and produced by Marvel Comics) is a ripoff of Fairy Tail.. It seems to me that Fairy Tail took a lot of ideas from Stan Lee's work. I was just surprised that Stan Lee's creation was such a major influence in the creation of Fairy Tail. It seemed like a good forum topic.

Number 2; Before you suggest to someone else to do a google search, do one yourself. Harry Potter was published in 2001. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings was published in 1954. Tolkien was brilliant and his work has been a true example of fantasy fiction that has served as a foundation that many, many present day authors have built there own work from.

Number 3; True originality is rare. It is claimed by many, known to few, and never truly seen.

Kinda like NBC's Heroes and Charlotte! Main character in Charlotte basically has the same powers as Peter Petrelli!



It's really pretty easy to make comparisons of anime series to tv shows. Very few ideas are actually all that original when you really get down to it.

My comment below should have put it in context, when I perceived the original post as a complaint or claim that Fairy Tail ripped off ABC's Inhumans, and responded with an example of just as ridiculous such an idea seemed to me, before clarifying the idea that Fairy Tail is not as original as one thinks it is.

The bolded is where I clarified my use of sarcasm, and I apologize if you miffed by it.

In any case, there are around 7 billion people in the world alive currently, and billions more who were alive in the previous centuries. Humans, although growing up in different places, tend to share some natural commonalities, which only increased in the age of near instantaneous communications, social media, and the information provided by the internet in general. Is it so strange for multiple works of fiction to share some, if not many similarities?

That being said, I would not say it is unusual for a newer show to differ from the source material, as well as taking on more modern influences, regardless of the original production date of the source. Having watched the trailer for Inhumans, I just do not see it that could not be explained elsewhere.

Before you admonish us for misunderstanding, other and I think that the notion of coincidence in fiction, arising out of ideas that people would inevitably have at some point, is extremely common, as well as a well known phenomenon by the general public. With this idea being assumed apparent, one reading would consider this thread wholly unnecessary, unless one believes something is more afoot; otherwise, why make a thread? Similarities exist everywhere.

The idea of intent is harder to disprove when one questions why the thread poster wants to. This is what makes political threads interesting, as the poster can be "technically" innocuous in wording, but their intent can be easily determined from their previous history.

Which...I do not see the point. Many other shows appear to me to be similar to many other works in the same intensity as Inhumans and Fairy Tail, both due to well worn ideas being used to create new intellectual properties, as well as a basic idea of entertainment and "cool" being shared among different cultures, partially due to the reasons I mentioned above.

Edit: To further emphasize my earlier point concern commonalities, and the idea that coincidences are common as are the tropes used, just read the previous replies coming to the same conclusion I did. That of the belief that you were allegedly claiming that Inhumans ripped off Fairy Tail.

Edit edit: Read the title again. "Way too similar (ABC's Inhumans and Fairy Tail)". Too similar implies the issue of plagiarism than simple coincidence, in regards to "too" meaning excessive or unacceptable.

Your current post seemingly has a missing tag, which mystified me, as the first one was edited and legible, but I am not sure where I went wrong. My post communicated the message of my post that was misunderstood, before I relayed about why your thread would have been misunderstood due to several reasons, as well as why sharing any similarities is hardly impressive, especially when you yourself listed just one concerning Corona and the heroine in Inhumans, which did not strike me as particularly odd in the grand scheme of coincidences.

I apologize if I am not being clear, I hope to not start a fight with you.

Correct and second that with cold hard facts

This is so off the wall not neccesary IMO if people do a little research


Before ANIME became a niche in US media American Comic Books and TV series were poplular here like Superman

You could apply reverse complaints saying Manga took ideas from American Comic Books

BTW INhumans started @ Marvel circa 1965 in Fantastic Four and others as The Inhuman Royal Family

BTW their home city was in Capt America 1941

On the other hand Fairy Tail Manga started 2006 / Amine 2009

Fact checking tells the truth ! In this thread it was totally ignored

See for yourself


Inhumans

The Inhumans are a fictional race of superhumans appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

The comic book series has usually focused more specifically on the adventures of the Inhuman Royal Family, and many people associate the name "Inhumans" with this particular team of super-powered characters.

The Inhumans first appeared in Fantastic Four #45 (December 1965), though members Medusa and Gorgon appeared in earlier issues of that series (#36 and #44, respectively). Their home, the city of Attilan, was first mentioned years earlier, in a Tuk the Caveboy story written and drawn by Jack Kirby that appeared in Captain America Comics #1 (March 1941). The city was described as the home of a race that was evolutionarily advanced when human beings were still in the Stone Age.

The Inhuman Royal Family have been adapted to numerous Marvel animated series and video games over the years. Inhuman characters were introduced in live-action in the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., while the Inhuman Royal Family are featured in the TV series Inhumans, which premiered in 2017.

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima. It has been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Magazine since August 2, 2006, with the individual chapters collected and published into 63 tankōbon volumes by Kodansha as of December 26, 2017. The story follows the adventures of Natsu Dragneel, a teenage wizard who is a member of the popular wizards' guild Fairy Tail, as he searches for the dragon Igneel.

The manga has been adapted into an anime series produced by A-1 Pictures, Dentsu Inc., and Satelight, which began broadcasting in Japan on October 12, 2009. Additionally, A-1 Pictures has developed seven original video animations and two animated feature films. The series ended its initial run on March 30, 2013. A second series premiered on TV Tokyo on April 5, 2014, and ended on March 26, 2016.

Fairy Tail was originally licensed for an English language release in North America by Del Rey Manga, which began releasing the individual volumes on March 25, 2008 and ended its licensing with the 12th volume release in September 2010. In December 2010, Kodansha Comics USA took over North American release of the series. The Southeast Asian network Animax Asia aired an English-language version of the anime for seven seasons from 2010 to 2015. The anime has been licensed by Funimation for an English-language release in North America As of February 2017, Fairy Tail has 60 million copies in print.

OMG!!! I just said that that a lot of ideas from "fairy tail" came from "Inhumans" I will put it as simply as possible, Inhumans was created by Stan Lee and produced by Marvel back in the 60's. It came WAY before Fairy Tail and most other anime. I never disputed this fact.
...I have said all of this in above posts..

I think it may be possible to report your own post for a mod to change the thread title, or edit the opening post to alleviate the amount of misunderstanding.

That being said...the misunderstanding of your intent and claim are completely logical.

Eh, unless they run around saving the world with Nakama power I can pretty easily overlook a few power differences.
