Ikki Tousen is not a Tenjho Tenge rip off. It is stated that it is the Romance of the Three Kingdoms re-enacted in modern times by schools instead of kingdoms. Where Tenjho Tenge is an internal conflict between factions in the same school, and with a much smaller cast.
Even everyones favorite Dragonball is based off of Journey to the West/Forbidden Kingdom (like Saiyuki), how many monkey king Gokus do we need?
If anyone has seen Tokyo Mew Mew now that rips off some Sailor Moon.
I suppose some of my examples are "inspired" by other stories, or ripped off. That is sort of a personal call. I guess it depends on how much content is just too similar to ignore.
For the most part folks don't really care though. I mean we gave an Oscar to a man who remade a Chinese film and nobody batted an eye (or credited the original). The Departed? Really? Really!?

Two days ago, I've been chatting with Slowdanse (Mod of this site) and her friends on Twitter about anime shows. She asked what's our least favorite anime and one of her friend mentioned that Wedding Peach is a rip-off of Sailor Moon, and for that, I was thinking to create a new topic here.

A ripoff is a blatant or unscrupulous copy or imitation.

I could only name a few shows here 'cause I'm still noob in anime world.
Combatler V - ripoff from Voltes V in different models and characters.
Dear Boys - Slam Dunk.
Duel Master - Yu-Gi-Oh!
Ikki Tousen - Tenjho Tenge.
K-On! - ripoff from Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad in female version.
Lucky Star - Azumanga Daioh. It might be.
Hungry Heart and Captain Tsubasa. IDK which one is a rip-off.

Let's get started.



LOL at Beck Mongolian Chop Squad and K-on!...

sure its the same because it talks about having about having a band...but thats looking at the two superficially... did you really watch it to say that it is a rip off..? (k-on!) im saying this because I love the two series...

and I would say the very same to Azu Manga Diaoh! and Lucky Star..

about the topic hmm...cant think of anything....

It's a disgrace to the world animation.

This should never have been published D:

It is hard to argue with money. The most recent series consistently placed higher in the TV ratings than Naruto or Bleach, typically coming in at the #7 or #8 position among anime.

It should not need to be stated, but just because you are not the target audience for an anime doesn't mean it should have never been published.

I don't think there are any rip-offs, just ideas that came from something else.

Ah. That makes perfect sense. Thanks for clearing that up. I always wondered why the art between the 2 is so similar.

Took the words out of my mouth. As a fan of the two series, I felt insulted by the first post. Thanks, man.

There's a difference between borrowing some ideas (which is normal for ALL arts) and ripping off/plagiarism. There is also borrowing TOO much.

For example, Bleach's Bount arc in the beginning almost looked like a rip off of Yu Yu Hakusho's Chapter Black saga. Even Urarahara had the same problem Kuwabara did.

There are two ways you can judge any anime: first, by it's originality with almost every anime failing that test, and that really is another argument altogether being that originality is now very relative, and secondly, on it's own merits, a cohesive plot, animation quality, believable characters and so forth. Mangaka and writers draw upon aspects of folklore, technology, social events and certainly other works to formulate their stories so their ideas and notions come from somewhere. There are plenty of paths to be taken by both the mangaka and the anime directors, but an anime/manga does not have to be truly unique for it to be good.

At least Azumanga is hillarious XD
That one me LOL.
LS just made me smile :P

Many of the new animes from the winter season feel familiar.
It`s like the manga/anime creators have lost their creativity.

Oh wait, Azumanga came first, so you ment that LS is a rip-off of Azumanga :P
(I don`t get good enough sleep nowadays :P)

If LS is a rip-off, they did a bad job at it hehe.

AD came out back in April 2002 and LS on April 2007. That anime isn't exactly a rip-off.
I dunno why I'm disappointed on Azumanga Daioh.

I apologize for what I said in the first post 'cause you know, I'm currently retrieving some of my memories from the past. Both shows I've mentioned were under fighting genre right?

Urgh. (Facepalm)

i dont think Ikki Tousen is a rip off of Tenjou Tenge. Also Ikki Tousen sucks, i watched like 5 episodes of that garbage and couldn't take it anymore. But Tenjou Tenge definitely needs another season. I still cant understand why dumb anime like Ikki Tousen have so many seasons and better anime are left incomplete...
