Here is where I want people to chime in with known instances of artists and companies failing miserable because of images they made use of in their products.

As an example: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/14298774/images/1300566050931.jpg

Image to the left: Dante, Devil May Cry

Image to the immediate right: Dante with a rifle. In a Hunter: the Vigil book.

What the fuck White Wolf?

The similarities are mind-boggling.

It comes off as less 'similar' and more 'artist traced that shit'.

A similar problem happened with Nobilis 3rd edition, where entire sections of artwork were lifted almost straight out of Touhou Project.

Jenna Moran, the game writer, threw a fit when she found out and had the whole book release held back to tear the things out.

Aye, that one. Amusing, sad, and quite rightly pathetic.

My sides.

Why would someone want to copy a shit manga like Bleach, except for the money?

For the money.

Wanna hear something funny? I could't even make it through the pilot chapter of Bleach because of the art. Art was horribad in chapter 0.

Might try later though, but only because.

I actually thought Bleach's art style was pretty good, from what I saw of it.

I loved the backgrounds in Bleach. They were very clean.

I actually kind of like Bleach's art. It has a distinctive flavor. Kind of like Liarsoft's games. Or anything from Toriyama Akira, or Ogure Ito. They all have a distinct flavor that further colors the works themselves.

That's after much grinding and polishing over the years.

I remember reading Kubo couldn't find a publisher initially because the art was not up to par.

Damn it, don't force to pick up Bleach again because I've been putting it off.

I'm already trying to trudge through sixty-odd volumes of my beloved One Piece that I've neglected for nearly a decade.

It's too much too soon.

Not to mention they keep churning out 18 or so pages a week so your work load gets bigger.

Also bleach is not worth it. It is the first manga I dropped and picked up again after 50-80 or so chapters since I couldn't bear it.

Bah! 18 pages is nothing.

500 chapters left...is something else entirely.

I found the ripping off to be highly amusing and laughed myself to sleep last night (seriously, my bro came to share some news and I was out of it) I know I came across something that would have been perfect for this thread, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was...it was used as a mascot or something for a store and when I asked them about it, they insisted it was something they had created :/

As for the subject of Bleach...I...I really liked it, but I can't carry on with it. The new arc is ridiculous and I feel it should have ended a long time ago...

One piece is probably my all time favorite manga series

One Piece is probably the only one of the big three shounen still in an active run that I still respect at all by now.

Naruto got dull and stupid after a while (fucking Uchiha), and the art... hasn't really changed much at all to my knowledge.

Bleach stopped having backgrounds. Everyone looks identical. Aizen was one of the least entertaining villains ever. Plotholes galore. Nothing to recommend it anymore.

On topic!
So, I went to the mall to watch a movie with my cousin.
As we made our way to the cinema, we passed by a sporting goods store.
Then, something caught my eye:

Apparently, Ezio Auditore advertises soccer jerseys here in Ecuador.

If it was an intentional homage, then it's not plagiarism, lolololol.

Knowing Ubisoft... I wouldn't doubt that this is some kind of marketing scheme thing.

Ubisoft. Marketing scheme. In Ecuador. By using a local sporting goods brand.
