I have seen a lot of statements lately like "Bleach is a rip-off of Yu Yu Hakusho" and "Rahxephon copies Evangelion." N00bish comparisons like these are poorly said and proven by giving a bunch of random details that two anime have in common.
For example:
Naruto and DragonballZ
Goku is a carefree guy who doesn't care if someone is stronger than him unless that person threatens the people he cares about. Naruto strives to become the strongest to gain acknowledgement. They are both overrated anime, but that is all. Dragonball Z is merely waiting until shit happens and then stop that shit. Naruto has missions that he must fulfill while trainging to be stronger to become Hokage.
THE PLOTS ARE NOT SIMILAR AND THEREFORE NARUTO IS NOT A RIP OFF.

Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho
Let's think. What was Yusuke's first case after he became spirit detective. He fought against Hiei to regain some stolen artifacts. What was Ichigo doing after he became a shinigami? Kicking random ass. How about after that. Yusuke went into a castle to kick some guys ass who was controlling these bugs that possess people. Ichigo was rescuing Rukia from Soul Society. If you think these plots paralell, then you must be on crack. There is no similarity between the two in plot.

Rahxephon and Evangelion
I'm gonna have fun with this. THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT SAY RAHXEPHON COPIES EVANGELION ARE THE LEGIONS OF PEOPLE THAT HANG ONTO EVAS BALLZ. Basically, the EVA equivalent to a narutard except with a better anime to hang onto. Rahxephon's plot was a war with the Mu after Ayato realized that he was isolated in a world that kept the outside world a secret. Evas plot was Shinji destroying the angels. They both go deeper than that, but their plots don't even come close to being parallel. People that compare these two are EVAs whores that watch one episode of Rahxephon and assume they understand the plot and conclude that Rahxephon is a rip off of EVA. I think EVA is the better anime, but Rahxephon too was a masterpiece. Everyone that says Rahxephon is a rip off is an asswipe who basically is trying to shit on the anime community because of their petty fanboyish nature.

Exactly.
Just because they are both in outerspace doesn't mean shit.
Cowboy Bebop is episodic and Outlaw Star isn't. How they can even be comapred as much as they are is beyond me.

There was a thread about it a like two weeks ago I think. Outlaw Star's bounty hunting episodes were pretty much filler for the most part.

awesome post. i've been getting tired of hearing comparisons like that.

the comparisons that are usually made are often weak or few in number. they aren't very stable.

Any anime to any other anime

Unless it is an complete rip off of another anime, no anime should be compared to any other anime because there are always differences in opinions between ppl.

In Trigun and Rurouni Kenshin's case, they almost completely parallel. The differences are what caused them to make their promises and the setting of the story. However, the whole story is taking care of those that are bitter about what happened in their pasts. Trigun really shouldn't be compared to Rurouni Kenshin in the end because they are different enough not to be.

Naruto and Bleach. I've seen all out flame wars on this one.

It's like someone already said. We have ninja's on missions. Shinigami kicking random ass. Maybe it's just me but I see nothing similar between the two...

Than we have Sailor Moon and pretty much every magical girl, save the world type anime.
It doesn't matter if the series has nothing in common with Sailor Moon. If it's magical girl, and those magical girls are saving the world than it's a rip off of dear miss Usagi. Like...Tokyo Mew Mew. Diffrent plot. Diffrent characters. Diffrent types of powers. BUT, it's magical girl, and those magical girls are saving the world! How dare the Mew Mew's copy the Sailor Scouts! Shame shame!

Gravitation...all those other creepy shounen-ai's and even yaoi's. I've only seen this a few times but geez. People compared Gravitation and Loveless. All they have in common is genre. Loveless is scary! Ok, we have a college student having affairs with a twelve year old! "Why Soubi...your parter appears to be no more than twelve...what? That's ok with you? Alright..." Ok? It's scary! And I don't want to go into the others...while Gravitation is a romance. No matter what you say it's a romance, except with two guys instead of a guy and a girl. And they are both of legal age. =D

Ok I'm done...hehe I have fun with these kinds of topics.
