>>
is it a ripoff if it's made by the same people?
>>
>>140012129

It's still a shameless ripoff.
>>
>>140012064
Who cares? It looks good and looks promising, also it's not tied to follow a manga/LN
>>
>>140012162
that doesn't make it a ripoff, it makes the creator a hack.

It is if the original is based on external source material
>>
the worth you are looking for is rehash


every other anime you enjoy and love is also inspired by something and has several copies, so having two similar shows isn't a big deal
>>
It looks great and has a length cap, so it'll likely end and resolve as opposed to spiraling out of control and getting nowhere just to drag out something popular.
>>
>>140012064
>kabaneri
it's not even the biggest ripoff of the season

>Hundred - IS ripoff
>Hero Academy - Naruto ripoff

Both of those are much more transparent ripoffs then this. Furthermore, this is more a ripoff of every zombie flick ever, except for the steampunk motif.
>>
>>140012064
Shingeki doesnt has ownership rights and neither does muvluv, so no.

Haifuri is more of a rip off to be honest.
>>
>>140012064

I could also say that Snk is a muvluv ripoff.

Also both shows have the same director.

In that case, I'm pretty sure MIX wins, since Adachi has written pretty much the exact same manga at least ten times before. And I love it every time.

BnHA is barely similar to Naruto except in the trope ridden way all battle shounen are.

Kabaneri copies nearly every element of SnK from the premise to the pseudo-period setting to the plot structure so far. I don't really mind it though, the premise was the best part of SnK. If this can get the execution right it would be a step up.
>>
>>140012990

Habanero looks better and has a magnificent foot shot IN THE FIRST EPISODE.

SnK is the lesser version here.
>>
>>140012418
>Fairy Tail exists

You mean Rave Master right?
>>
>>140012967
No, it's the old irc crew that never left.
>>
>>140013082
It just depends how the plot develops from here. SnK turned to shit when everyone was titans, if this goes full retard the visuals won't save it.
>>
>>140012990
That's the point, genius. The premise, setting and plot stucture are not SnK's to being with, its just another show that uses said elements.
>>
>show about gay vampires
>show about cute magical girls
>shows have tournaments in them
>show is about terraformed Mars, and one specific Italian town of old which was based out of lagoons, where little boats were the best way to get around. The story follows three friends doing their best to become full-fledged gondoliers while experiencing the magical stuff of comfy

Face it, anon. Everything has been done and there is no originality left in anything. Everything is a repost of a repost.
>>
>>140013280
If it copied one or two aspects then sure, it's just the usual way nothing can be truly original. But when it copies fucking everything and just tweaks it, it's a rip off.

I don't know why you're pretending companies don't actively try to come up with rip offs of hit series to ride the popularity wave. This was definitely made with SnK in mind specifically.
>>
4chan is a ripoff of 2chan. You might as well just go there.
>>
It's a complete and total 100% copy.
Except they use guns instead of swords.
And they're fighting zombies that turn their victims into more zombies instead of giants.
And there are trains.
And there are multiple settlements instead of all of humanity living in one multi-walled megacity sectioned off into districts.
And the characters and their motivations are completely different.
And there's no scouting legion analogue.
But yeah other than that it's the same.

Walled cities in apocalypse are a thing, protags with some "evil" inner strength are a thing. Just watch the zombie train steampunk samurai show as it's own thing and not a 1:1 copy of a series that borrowed elements as well

If you want to see something really blatant go watch Infinite Stratos then Hundred. I can't tell the difference for the most part.
>>
>>140013528
I said in my original post I don't mind, it's just retarded to deny the similarities with "but nothing is original!!!". No shit, but originality is a sliding scale and this is far to one side.

then you haven't read hero academy. there are cast similarities, relationship similarities, replace the hokage with being the no.1 hero and you have the same fucking story.

This kind of show is definitely a genre, and one that only retarded newshits think was started by SnK. But yet again, you fucking retards find retarded things to pick at instead of it's actual flaws.

You also described several science fiction novels, a handful of video-games and probably some kind of children's cereal.

All stories sound the same if you deconstruct them down to their basest parts.

Attack on Titan is a mediocre manga. Everyone who jumped on the bandwagon that watched the anime and not read the manga have no idea of how generic and bland the story is.
>>
>>140018642
God Eater is a Monster Hunter ripoff though.
>>
>>140012064
Yes, SnK was the first of its kind to incorporate any elements included in it.
This is blasphemy, how dare they.
Someone ought to write to the studio and tell them they're stealing someone's work.
>>
>>140018867
MH is a Phantasy Star Online rip off
>>
>>140018642
It's also by the exact same studio and team.

I mostly agree with you, and either way the show should be judged on its own merits, but come on, it's very obviously ripping off Attack on Titan specifically.

Anon, it is the other way around. PSO is a monster hunter ripoff.
If anything, the original would be something like ICO or SoTC

No, it isnt. All the details that differentiate AoT from other similar series are not present in Kabaneri. Without those details the core is stock humanity vs something storyline.

Your syntax is horrible.

The entertainment industry takes ideas from various forms of medium in order to create art. Autists on /a/ bitch and complain about trite without realizing that art is a collaboration of ideas that create something new.

If you were to look at various forms of entertainment I would guarantee that you would find accounts of "ripping off ideas" in order to create a new medium. I referenced Platina End to showcase that ideas are being used all across the manga industry in order to create a new story.

The MC wants to be a great hero, but he wasn't necessarily aiming for the top. Now he's obligated to follow in the footsteps of the no.1.

Cutting a limb is hard. You can't do it with a gun.

>>140030941
Why don't they wear katana or knives in case that happen then ?
>>
>>140030970
They seem to think it's a curse. Once you're bitten you're done.
>>
>>140030970

Because even with a good quality knife/sword, it's not easy and usually takes several hacks. At that point you'd already be infected.

Not anymore, the show is about them living in the train.

>>140031222
That alone will change things up dramatically. At leas the first 1/3 of the show is going to be the rush to get to another walled city while defending the train.

This series actually seems like a direct improvement. The visuals are better already, the fact that it isn't EXCLUSIVELY "HIT THEIR WEAKPOINT!!!" means that we'll see a wider variance in combat, there are a variety of weapons that will see regular use, the trains mean that we'll see multiple locations instead of just "inside the city" and "outside the city", and I have grown to enjoy the bizarre nonsense that the MC is doing in order to succeed. I mean the fucker sliced his own wrist just to bait a zombie at him and then strung himself up in bondage attire in order to stem the flow of a disease, all while trying to prove his steam-pilebunker worked.

First episode was better than SnK first episode obiously. Well, if you like apocalyptic series and you enjoyed SnK you will like this too.
>>
It's not a ripoff because this is how it was made:

>SnK team go out for dinner after finishing SnK
>everyone gets drunk as Araki buys drinks
>Araki: are the walls really filled with titans, where did they come from
>fuck Isayama, why doesn't he just tell us what happens
>I bet the people who get eaten are turned into titans too
>wouldn't it be cool if there was an original titan who transformed the others into titans
>hahaha I bet we can write a better story than Isayama
>all the young animators get excited because young and not jaded, thought animating 3D maneuver gear was super cool
>wait, I suck at writing
>drunkenly calls his buddy Okouchi to come up with the rest of the story
>what if x
>what if y
>what if z
>what if we got Mikimoto to do designs
>I bet we can get a fat budget because stupid gaijin want in after seeing SnK success
>young animators happy to be able to animate something "cool" with lots of budget

This is exactly how it happened
>>
>>140012064
If i would be fucking Isayama i would be pissed as fuck.
>>
>>140032016
Is there supposed to be anything wrong with that?
>>
Incarnate by Nick Simmons.

Top level plagiarism.
>>
>>140032214
No, I just think it would be kind of cute if it's basically the SnK staff in a young studio making their own big "what-if" of SnK
>>
>>140026689
Except we were all saying that SnK was garbage as it was airing. I dropped it around ten episodes in because of how shit it was.

There's always been a core of plebs maintaining the threads and fanbase, same as there are for fucking Naruto and One Piece now. In fact it wouldn't surprise me if these were all the same people.
>>
>>140032315
*And them getting all the cool toys to play with because of the popularity of SnK. Therefore going the anime original route without having to stick with the source material

How do you rip off something which also ripped off a bunch of other ripoffs?
>>
>>140032350
/a/ only liked SnK when the manga started.

It shit itself when fucking everyone could turn into titans.
>>
>>140032350
>Except we were all saying that SnK was garbage as it was airing
You clearly were not there when it aired. SnK spammed dozens of threads everyday and most of /a/ enjoyed it despite the huge amount of shitposters. Then it was hated because it became extremely popular, letting the minority of vocal haters express their thoughts everytime someone talks about SnK.
>>
>>140032572
>/a/ only liked SnK when it didn't have an anime
fixed

The shifters have never been a problem or a reason to shitpost when it was manga only.
>>
If people really want to shit on this there's no need to say it's a ripoff of anything. It has enough problems of its own.

Like how the train inspections happen inside the wall. And they lower the bridge as soon as a train is approaching without any visual contact to ensure it hasn't been fucked. Retardation added specifically to have an easy way in for the zombies.

Even the MC's plan is fucking retarded. The current guns aren't strong enough to kill the zombies and somehow he's the only one who thinks "let's just build a bigger gun"? The things seem like they can be killed without destroying the hearts anyway, so why care so much about it? Go out in full plate so they can't bite you and lop some heads off.

>by the time everyone recovers from their drunken insanity, they look at the final pitch and recoil in horror: there is no way any sane person could write this shit.
>No 'sane person,' at least.
>"Excuse me, Mr. Okouchi? We're cashing in that favor you owe us for Code Geass. We need you to write for our new... 'Gundam anime.'"
>"No, we couldn't get ahold of Taniguchi. But we do have someone else in mind who we think can handle being Director."

OP is a SnK fanboy or a fujo/landwhale . This thread is a bait

>>140012064
Does something being a ripoff even apply to anime?

I mean, look at every single battle harem show. Most first episodes are a step away from being shot for shot remakes. Entire series are exactly the same aside from the characters' names and powers and no one cares.

>>140033571
The maneuvering devices are definitely steampunk. I agree that the term doesn't really work though.
>>
>>140033763
Survivalpunk.

Also aren't the gear actually pneumatic? I thought it utilized compressed gas, not steam.
>>
>>140033915
They are, but that doesn't make it not steampunk.
>>
>>140034041
Actually, it does make it not steampunk.

You're going to have to slap a boiler onto the design and have it fire off of steam pressure rather than compressed gas.
>>
Well, something like Alien would never be made if the writer didn't, by his own admission, steal everything from everyone. It's still one of the best movies ever made.

Of course there are limits to stealing. We'll see if Kabaneri will feature characters transforming into monsters, trains secretly made of zombies an a plot hook about getting into the damn basement.

aot doesn't have any steam punk machinery or zombies and they're all trapped in a single place

Maybe, first episode was better than SnK though

>>140036279
The MCs are both half Kabane half humans but I'm sure af that the train isn't made of Kabane. Or at least I hope so.

Of course it was better. I hope it will continue to have this dark atmosphere.

I was giving my own retarded option that would still be less retarded than what they actually chose to do. Obviously there are far better options than both.

>>140033376
What was wrong with what I said? Please tell me.
I was possibly wrong about killing zombies without destroying their hearts, but I haven't seen anything to make me believe they can't be killed by the standard methods being used.
>>
>>140012064
Everything is a copy of something, as long as it improves the genre i'm okay with it.
>>
>>140036503
>What was wrong with what I said? Please tell me.
Everything and they have all been explained in previous threads a hundred of times so I'm not gonna explain again. For example
>And they lower the bridge as soon as a train is approaching without any visual contact
>specifically to have an easy way in for the zombies.
>somehow he's the only one who thinks "let's just build a bigger gun"?
>The things seem like they can be killed without destroying the hearts anyway

Also, it's an apocalyptic anime, that means that humans will do something retarded in order to make easier for the zombies to attack the station.
>>
>>140036390

Yeah, the people who are saying, "lo, grimmdark snk ripoff" are just the peope who like to rip an anything that gets a decent amount of hype. It's not a game changer, but it's fun and it has good animation and music and so far it hasn't done anything glaringly wrong. just enjoy it
>>
>>140036716
>it's an apocalyptic anime
>bad things can't happen without retardation being involved
I'd even accept retardation from an individual, but here it seems like the whole system is retarded.

>The things seem like they can be killed without destroying the hearts anyway
Okay, I won't ask for an explanation behind it, but can you tell me what the currently accepted rules are then?
Can they be killed without removing/destroying their hearts or not?
>>
>>140036847
Exactly. Afterall, shitting on an anime series is retarted. Just enjoy the series. If you can't then don't watch. What do you win by insulting something? It's ok if we do it for fun but a lot of people take it so seriously it wnnoys me.
>>
>>140036903
>Can they be killed without removing/destroying their hearts or not?
Just read the synopsis:
As the world is in the middle of an industrial revolution, a monster appears that cannot be defeated unless its heart, which is protected by a layer of iron, is pierced. By infecting humans with its bite, the monster can create aggressive and undead creatures known as Kabane. On the island Hinomoto, located in the far east, people have built stations to shelter themselves from these creatures. People access the station, as well as transport wares between them, with the help of a locomotive running on steam, called Hayajiro. Ikoma, a boy who lives in the Aragane station and helps to build Hayajiro, creates his own weapon called Tsuranukizutsu in order to defeat the creatures. One day, as he waits for an opportunity to use his weapon, he meets a girl named Mumei, who is excused from the mandatory Kabane inspection. During the night, Ikoma meets Mumei again as he sees Hayajiro going out of control. The staff on the locomotive has turned into the creatures. The station, now under attack by Kabane, is the opportunity Ikoma has been looking for.
>>
>>140036990
I can only assume the next episode will start with the beheaded one picking up its head and celebrating its newfound ranged attack by flinging flying chompers around.

I've gotta be honest and say that kills some of the interest for me. I've never been a fan of those types of stories.
>The world is under attack by a group of invincible enemies with only one extremely obvious (literally glowing) weakness that only MC is smart enough to properly exploit after being initially unsuccessful!

I was hoping for a few Letters from Iwo Jima style banzais from the guys blowing their hearts out, but I suppose if there was any yamato damashi left outside of the super special MC group the world wouldn't have gotten to the state it's in.
>>
>>140037367
Well nothing it's perfect. Just try to enjoy it the most you can. Or just don't watch it as anon said.
>>
>>140032572
>It shit itself when fucking everyone could turn into titans.
That never happened you retarded fuck and shifters are part of the story.
>>
>>140036938
>What do you win by insulting something?

ikr, there's a big difference between criticizing something and just shitting on it. The former can tell us a lot about the industry and how to improve things, especially if we're creators and writers still learning the ropes of storytelling. The latter is just something assholes do to feel fulfilled. Sharing similar story elements to a previous work isn't a very good point of criticism. AoT does not own the tropes of "humanity not at the top of the food chain", or "humanity in walled cities" or the steampunk or zombies or monster fighting. These things are things and what really sets a story apart are the closer details of the setting and characters. Mumei so far doesn't seem at all like Mikasa in terms of personality. Ikoma isn't a berserker like Eren, but an inovater who wants to help people fight instead of jumping into the front lines.
