Its not a ripoff. I know its about vampire but it doesnt mean that its a anime ripoff. If you look up there are thousand of vampire stories. Even drams [Buffy the Vampire] <-- I think. Twilight is completely different..and its awesome >.<

o_O There are tons of stories based off of other stories.
I mean I never read the series and I don't plan on it but if you think it's shit... don't bother with it.
And come on, there is no universal vampire that everyone uses in their stories.
They change all the time.
I mean I hate to admit it but yeah... every story has some sort of cliche. Good guys always win.
The girl has to go through a journey of hell to get her man. Quiet characters have a tragic past.
Whatever.

Besides... I don't see people ripping off Romeo x Juliet because it's an anime remake of the original Shakespearean drama. Yeah it's the same concept.

If you don't like Twilight because it's somehow a second-rate copycat, then don't read it.

Who else here thinks that Twilight and its sequels/spinoff movies/collectible mugs are a total ripoff of various anime that have been around for years? Like.. in terms of vampires and humans in taboo relationships, and similar themes like that. Erm.. the one that I can think of the most quickly would be Vampire Knight, and there are others too. Vampires have been common in anime and manga for a while, especially with the romance aspect. Any other examples you can think of?


SCREW YOU!

i don't like twilight, but...

twilight & anime are different.
so you can't really compare them when it comes to merchandise.
it's like comparing itazura na kiss to like... house or scrubs.

i totally agree on how stupid it is that they can be in the daylight. however the book in and of its self is quite good, and its different then the usual vampire novels. and just because there are similar bits of plot lines here and there, doesn't make it a rip off. its really hard nowadays to come up with something completely original that no one has thought of before.

I disagree. I highly doubt Stephenie Meyer watched VK or something and said "Oh, look, it has a good plot. A hot vampire and a human. Now all I have to do is write a book with the same plot and PRESTO! instant fans." Even though there are several animes (well, actually I can only think of Vampire Knight) that have a similar plot, I think "ripoff" is a bit harsh.

Why is it that all anime fans seem to either adore or hate the books?? I thought they were pretty good, though not worth obsessing over. In a hateful way or an adoring one.


I couldn't agree any bwetter with you! Twilight is deffinetly not based or even trying to steal form other anime ideas and plots.

How do you know that the anime didn't rip-off of some other story? A lot of anime have similar storylines... Stories that have been done so many times already...
