he probably has none

How about the story?
The "hero" looks much like if the manga is aimed at a younger audience. They should at least have made super-deformed characters then i guess

Who is this?!  Lettme at e'm.  The worse plagiarist in my world--is a plagiarist in my country!

Like DISNEY, or them geeky American artist, those doozy quacks (new artist mind you, not the old school by the like of Buscemi, etc.)  :-X  

It's great to be influenced--but blatantly COPYING the product out of another is just pure uncreative, greedy, and uhm..ya know..obtuse.. yes, I have my fare of share to teach the young ladies.

hmpf.

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream. I am a traveller of time and space, to be where I have been. To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen. They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed.

Oh father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years. With no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear.

Personally I'd chop off his left forearm and put out his right eye.

Then he'd be an even better imitation.  ;)

Berserk inspired level in Vampire Saviour?

If anyone has played the game and seen the "fetus of god" level, is it possible that this was inspired by Berserk?

Cheesy Dragonslayer ripoff...
« Reply #32 on: February 21, 2005, 07:27:47 PM »
(Please feel free to move this if it's too lame for this section...)

My husband found this in a comic mag the other day.  I think this is the first American comic I've seen to blatantly rip off the Dragonslayer.  The only change the artist made was to the hilt. 
Also, I'm not sure what the deal is with the other character's mechanical hand.  Looks like it might shoot something.  Not that there haven't been other mechanical hands in comics and movies, but the combination of the two is funny.
My favorite thing is that the comic is called "Exploitation Now."  ;D

The section is the good one, I merged it with an older thread on the same subject though. That comic looks pretty lame overall otherwise.

I also noticed that nobody gave the link to the Todono Hunters site yet, which focuses on pointing out what Seiuchiroh Todono, the author of Daemon Hunters (Akuma Kari), ripped off of other works (mostly Berserk).

It's an old (now dead) webcomic, DragonSlayer girl hardly qualifies as a bit character.

The guy in the back looks like a more masculine Casca

It's a chick.

I used to read that Web Comic! :D

If you want, you can read it here.

It took quite a while for a story to develop, since the series was more about the gags.

Yeah, a chick named Bush. LOL.

Since we're at it, here's a shot from a demo of Castlevania DS, currently in development. DS indeed. ::)


As a side note, this one looks a lot less like the Dragon Slayer than "Ascalon" that you can find in "Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow" on Gameboy Advance, which is almost a carbon copy, only shorter since the game developers couldn't do otherwise (the in-game description text also makes it clear it's a reference to the DS). I expect them to include a perfect DS-clone in this one as well. Here's an image of the main character swinging Ascalon in Aria of Sorrow:



There are a lot of other Berserk references in videogames, probably too much to list them all here I guess.

I've read about half-way through it and it's pretty funny, though pretty over-the-top.  I don't see the DS as a rip-off in this since it seems a lot of material pokes fun at anime cliches and such.  It doesn't look like its meant to be taken too seriously.

I notise the exact replica of the Dragon Slayer is feature in this game. Somewhere in this trailer shows it:

I guess the gamemaker is a fan of Berserk.

I kinda want to download that Demon Hunters comic (stealing seems fitting for it, no?). It's like Berserk if you took away everything unique about Kentarou Miura's style and turned it into totally derivitive and cliche Japanese entertainment.

If she was a mongloid.

Speaking of Berserk Rip-Offs, has anyone played FF7?  Think about it.

Sephiroth has a long slender sword, silver hair, is a pretty boy, amasses a huge female fandom even though he's an asshole.

Cloud carries a beefy sword, has a screwed up childhood, keeps "almost dying", has a beefy sword, hates sephiroth and travels the entire god damn world to chase him down, and oh yeah, he has a big beefy sword.

Me and my friend TJ were conversing about this the other day, and while we came up with a huge list of things, we also remembered the following.

1) Theres a whole bunch of badguys in anime with long silver hair.
2) Theres a whole bunch of guys (good or evil) with beefy swords.

Conclusion being: With exception of Berserk and Bastard!, all japanese animation with beefy swords and/or silver haired pretty boy badguys needs to be burned.

Bastard wasn't all that good in my oppinion, by the way, it's just that the guy was such an asshole that I thought it was funny.  Plus there was an IFRIT, which we all know is like, proprietory to SQUARE ENIX DOT COM (tm)(R).  I am going to sleep now.

I dunno, I mean, of course I'm not crazy about people ripping off of Berserk, but I think the addition of the DS is pretty cool.  Definitely makes me want to play the game =).  Just as long as people know where credit's due, I'm fine with it.
