On 2ch, Japan's largest bulletin, a thread popped up with the title, "Concrete Proof of One Piece's Plagiarism lulz". In this thread, an image showed seemed to detail how One Piece continues to knock off Disney and Tim Burton. Or does it?
One Piece is basically Dragon Quest with pirates and DBZ kind of fights. But man, those pictures sure are compromising!
Naruto took ideas from Hunter X Hunter (Sasuke is 100% based off of Kurapika) but I don't see people tearing into that series.
Death Note ripped off Spongde Bob
I said the samething about Sasuke but them Naruto fans will get mad ass hell at you for saying that. LOL
dragon quest games are much better story wise
How is that compromising at all? King Neptune and King Triton are both based on Neptune from mythology, so nothing there. The characters from Thriller Bark all follow a Halloween theme, just like Nightmare before christmas, the characters themselves aren't copies they just follow a similar style. As for Alvida, I had no idea that Disney has a copyright on fat women with make-up, what other similarities are there? Can't remember her having tentacles...As for Genie, the guy has a wide smile and a pointy nose, do you honestly consider that plagiarism? This is just a troll article, if you're going to accuse Oda of plagiarising a series he has put his blood and sweat into for 15 years then at least have some convincing evidence.
lol OP does look really similar!
One Piece took borrowed some styles and made it work within its series.
I hate this troll site. Disney rip off a lot of work too. Look at Lion King its a direct rip off of Kimba the White Lion. He did copy some stuff either way it works within the series. LOL
Pablo Picasso ~ "Good artists copy. Great artists steal."
steve jobs even stole that quote...smh
oh wow, and all this time i thought that was a steve jobs original lmao
The sooner one piece ends...the better
i dont get comments like this, if you dont like one piece dont watch or read it, i do this with all anime i dont like and guess what? it works... one piece wont be ending any time soon, the new world still beckons....
so of all the 100+ unique characters, 3 or 4 of them + one background , are similar what is your point? one piece has way better character design than Disney overall characters. and no we don't want one piece to end sooner. if you don't like one piece to watch something else.
Anime takes from disney and disney takes from anime. The article makes it look like this is something new
wait, aren't disney stories just revisions of folktales from just about every culture in the world? How can that be plagirism...
I say Oda was either inspired or giving a throwback to the Disney stuff.
