    Re: Nick Simmons accused of plagiarizing manga.

    But even when you're being 'inspired by' someone's work, you still have to use some of your own creativity so as not to plagerize. What Simmons did is just wrong and outright theft. Plagerizing = bad idea, wrong, and lacking in creativity. Inspired by = taking something as a small guide and making it your own idea, creative, and good.

    I'm totally in love. Sadis + yinyangAio1 forever. <3 (Yes, we're together irl. We're engaged.) Also, if you liked/dated him, please stay off my page.

    A few new incidents have made me retract my opinion about the issue. After reviewing the facts it is very clear that Nick Simmons is indeed guilty of plagiarism. He didn't even try to be original. He copied panel for panek for crying out loud.

    Not only that, his characters look eerily similar. Look at this and tell me it doesn't look like Alucard:


    Also:

    Chick on the right looks exactly like Orihime.

    Yes, that does look like Alucard. And that does look like Orihime. That's just wrong.

    Ugh... I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit...

    I don't understand why people can't just try to use their talents on their own terms instead of directly copying panels and changing minute details.

    Nick Simmons however inexcusable had a reason for doing what he did. The reason was some cash. Money money money. That is his thing. Of course he may well pay for this. But why do people participate in plagiarism when it doesn't matter.

    People have plagiarized works here on AO. To what end. There is no money or anything else to gain, only your credibility to be destroyed.

    Re: Nick Simmons accused of plagiarizing manga.

    yeah, she does look like a blond version of orihime. and the worst part is that this guys manga looks pretty ugly compared to bleach. It's not delicate enough, the blood coming out of the guys mouth is too thick and gush like. It doesn't look realistic. his manga is really blah, ugly. i don't like the fact that it's in color either, when i saw the pictures in the first page when they compared it to bleach, bleach's looked better, even though it was pretty much the same thing. Even if he doesn't get sued, i don't think that the manga will ever be in the same league as those he's copying.
