i am not kidding. have you ever had deja vu when watching an anime? like youve seen it somewhere before? believe me, you HAVE! why? because a lot of animes have a lot of the same themes.

for example: ever heard of an anime where the boy is weak and bullied....then he finds something he can do so good that others end up looking up to him. then he ends up mastering that particular field of whatever hes doing? yeah i can name three animes from the top of my head that have that exact theme

1) Naruto
2) History's strongest disciple kenichi
3)Whistle!

I DARE YOU TO TELL ME THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE!

but what gets me most is.....why? why repeat the exact theme over and over again? cant they think up something else? so.....WHAT ANIME THEME IS MOST NOTICABLE TO YOU GUYS?!

POKEMON......a kid going around catching lil monsters......mostly cause the show is so long i think that THEY THEMSLEVES played it out..........thats why nobody else is copying there theme.....

but the most noticable theme would be .......shows like the gundam series.......by now most of the gundams and story and stuff seem the same to me......but i still watch it

Let me tell you this, originality in Anime in this time of age is almost impossible ... The only Anime I have seen so far that ACTUALLY shows originality would be Library Wars (there's probably more, but I can't remember them at the momment)...

Taking things from others Animes is okay as long as you make it unique in your own special way. Although a fair amount of Anime fails to do it properly .

@ OP
that's typical Shounen plot you pointed out but not all Shounen Manga/anime start out like that
but other genres keep using the same plot over and over again but that's only the beginning of the story they won't always stay the same forever

Bakuman for example - it's a manga about two aspiring mangakas it's shounen but it's a cult hit it's not mainstream manga like naruto, Bleach etc. where there is always focus on fighting and as you said where a weak boy starts to become strong and defeats all kinds of badguys

I like to think that the animated Digimon series was the mature version of Pokemon.

However in the original Manga version of Pokemon it was considered pretty damn mature. It had blood, sexy looking females, story was a little bit darker, Pokemon and/or human dying, and especially none of the cheesy crap that the Anime version had.

i would say that themes are repeated because they are most appealing to human nature OR they show a part of human nature...so it would be similar...

...yea...sorry if that was confusing lol

oh almost forgot...uhh most used anime theme i think is...never give up?

i thought the digimon series was more successful than pokemon.......but i stopped watching digimon after the first digimon show came out so idk that much about that.......i did read the pokemon manga for a lil bit but stopped that too because on the internet the 1 chapter was lke 12 pgs and it was just getting boring.........i can see where pokemon and digimon are the same but thats just because of the lil monster but the theme of the story is completly different.........there hasnt been any other pokemon themes were there have been alot of other digimon ones were lil monsters talk and stuff.....but thats just my opinion ....and sorry for typing so much.....
