To be blunt: Anno is a plagiarist hack.
The top is from the novel 'the General Zapped An Angel.'
And the bottom is from the theatrical 'End of Evangelion.'
Why is this allowed?
If i was moot i would just have deleted /m/ once SEED finished airing
Sorry, anon. But you actually cannot say that.
Plagiarism is a crime, and you are making a legal accusation. This is slander.
Because you are making a legal accusation, whether you are right or not depend son the legal application of the case at hand.
End of Evangelion isn't plagiarism of "The General Zapped an Angel", because "The General Zapped an Angel" is a collection of short stories, none of which has a plot which is identical to any plotline in Evangelion. Your only point of evidence is one of the three different cover art pieces that the book has been published under, none of which actually show anything relevant to the content of the book itself, and between which there are substantial differences enough to prevent any legal action. For much the same reason as why, after the filmography of Alfred Hitchcock, it isn't plagiarism to shoot scenes of stairwells as long as you do not literally re-use his footage.
So you are wrong, and you should stop being so wrong.
>Uh, well, he's just shit cause I say so!
Sorry, but you said a thing that was verifiably wrong and you got called out on it.
Go back to the shadows from whence you came. Tell your master that we are not afraid of your kind.
man creating stuff needs inspiration, in fact eva its such a think because its inspired by multiple media, not only anime but manga toku and western movies and books, you can´t make up good stuff out of your ass by your own
Maybe the secret organization with a world-saving giant robot, and Masato or whatshisface being a big wuss at the start of the OVA and not wanting to get in the robot
But that's not the only series like that by far.
why do western fans deny Ultraman's influence on Evangelion?
Giants of light, ineffectual super science powered military organizations, crucifixion, mega-scale gore, 3 minute power limits, foreign mythology reinterpreted as vague sci-fi weirdness...
Is it just out of a lack of respect for the franchise?
Hell you could probably describe Evangelion most succinctly as Ultraman+X-Files
>why do western fans deny Ultraman's influence on Evangelion?
Because the only westerners with decent exposure to Ultraman in the west are like in their 60s+.
People tend to just get defensive if you try to inform them about something they have never even heard of before (in this case Ultraman), specially if they claim to be diehard Eva fans that know everything there is to know about the series.
1) Means acknowledging Anno being an otaku and NGE being Otaku angst, which destroyes image of evangelion being made by an auter in a french environment
2)simplifies the central theme and destroys "hurr it is actually 2deep4u plebians" evageeks
What's wrong with you guys? Post some fucking evas.
Jesus Christ, guys, just look at these fucking rip-off artists. Just straight stealing people's shit and putting their names on it. I bet ELO didn't even get royalties for this shit:
GAINAX BTFO. Evafags on suicide watch.
I'm not sure which type of reply you're seeking, but here's one anyway.
I do not hthgign that it ia rip off because when you are doing a rip off yuou are baiscally doign fanffiction and hwne you are fanficiton you are not ripping off but instad you are sesentialy doing something that is between rip off and orignal work because orignal work is not oiriginal ounlessit is not turpope before but it is always trope before so there is no oriignal that is not also a rip off so that all things are fanficiton of triopps and atropes all becme fanfiction so therte is no differtnce betwen rogiinality and ripoof
Anno anime = ripping off everything he loved as a child. That's it.
Eva is a big mashup of tokusatsu and dynamic pro mecha with a sprinkle of Ideon and UFO (the 70s TV series).
And no, that's not saying anything about Evangelion's quality as a watchable anime. But faggots need to stop saying Evangelion invented everything when it's more like it stole everything.
Have you never even seen 'everything's a remix'?
no one should have a problem with anno taking inspiration and remixing, it's literally how everything is created.
Oh you're the worst kind of moron. Sure, every single story in existence is similar to other stories. That's obvious, seeing as they're all made by human minds which conceptualize along certain patterns. But that doesn't mean plagiarism and copy/pasting stories doesn't exist. Pull the trigger, anon. No one will miss you.
Assuming you didn't watch the video, because copy-pasting stories, redoing scenes shot for shot, and reusing visual themes and designs are all things done often and done well by almost everyone in visual media.
We can all go home everyone, this guy would prefer to just shitpost than learn anything.
This seems like a pretty typical typical reactionary GL fan post. There's nothing wrong with mentioning Getter influence in mecha considering the impact it had on transforming mecha,.
Though it doesn't have much place with Eva.
>Same for the Getter Robo anime The manga of Master Ken Ishikawa was like a bible to me.
I don't know how that can't be an influence with a statement like that.
>not influenced by Getter Go
It kind of takes a little more from Ken Ishikawa's other series than Getter, but there's still a nod to it here and there.
I don't see why people get upset about Evangelion's relationship with other series. Yeah, Anno put a LOT of scenes, designs, references, influences, elements, whatever into Evangelion. It's not a worse work for it.
What I think is that people either get upset at most Eva fans being ignorant little shits spouting nonsensical praises and hardcore Eva fans feel like others are saying Eva is worthless. Stop being so reactionary.
Who's the one really butthurt here anon
Don't really get what Greco has to do with evangelion or anno
Though I'll admit I was annoyed too when Greco and his tallgeese lost against Niels, but I don't spend all day every shitposting about it
