(alright to sound like less of a bitch, i'm going to change what i said earlier)
going to point out some similarities between naruto and 666satan. first off they're twins i think, that is Seishi Kishimoto and Masahi Kishimoto. Maybe they think alike?
Protagonists both have demons sealed within them.
- Naruto - Kyuubi
- Jio - Satan
Evil Doers are looking for said demons to seal.
- Akatsuki - Jinchuuriki
- Zenom - Kaballah Demons (not sure of exact name)
Weird dog that can fight that grows to be huge
Both have timeskips that lead to a more mature main character.
there are probably more. also someone's probably pointed this out already, but i still feel like sharing, because sharing is beautiful.
Does Kishimoto have a twin ( it hought he had an older brother). And is 666 satan's mangaka kishimoto's bro? wowOriginally Posted by jairdan6
.....whoa...u didnt know that sharinganLS-kun??? anyway, jairdan6.....dude get ur facts straight, they both were inspired by DBZ, so thats most likely why they have a time skip and other ideas. they actually said this too. i think u just wanna make threads IMOOriginally Posted by sharinganLS
damn! how'd he know?! *runs off to assume new identity* yeah i should probably stop...
"GOD DAMNIT LEEROY!"
LOL i was suprised not anymore though (did some research abt him); wow another thing Kishimoto (Masashi) and i have in common (a twin).Originally Posted by 九尾写輪眼
in my defence, i still feel like the mangas are still too similar, even if they both borrow from dbz. i don't remember a dog type creature in dbz either...
Oh yes there are animals that talk in dbz (i think there was that wolfman and a dog who was a major i think ). Anyways i just think they practised their artwork during the same time and were competitive thats why their art styles are soo similar (but i dont have a problem with that i like it).
Akatsuki and Jio -> WORLD DOMINATION *hrrhrrhrr*Originally Posted by jairdan6
To be serious and as a fan of both manga: Yes, you can't overlook the similiaries in drawing style and story - BUT I truely don't think that they steal each others ideas. Would be a little bit stupid, eh?
I don't know if you have any experience with twins. We have two twin pairings in our family and also my children are born very close (just 17 month apart). It's sometimes surprising how much alike the mind of cloth siblings can be, especially when they are twins. They don't need to talk much, they thinking the same in the same minute.
Rather I think it's great that both are going their own ways, not paying attention of what people might say. Both already said once, that they know about the similiaries and they don't do it on purpose. As twins they shared the same expierence in their childhood and i think the special parts that attract your attention are the parts that both of them favorite in their pre-mangaka life^^
Besides most of the look-alike-stuff is something you can find in other shounen as well, but the similiar drawing style makes it standing out.
The necklace Jio/Naruto got who keeps Satan/Kyuubi in check. That is something!
Does that mean Ruby = Yamato? Personally, I don't thinking they copying each other... YET. I need to see more similarities before I conclude that one of them is ripping off the other.Quote:
They are twins after all, I dont think its out of the world to say that twins do think alike sometimes!
i think 666 satan is drawn more like shaman king im basing this on the front cover of a shaman king manga book so i dont really know if thats a good opinion but also im pretty sure sieshi was going for the db feel and in fact if his producer had let him the characters would have been more westernized because his initial drawings of ruby looked more like a native american a very streotypical native american at that which i probably would have found offensive if he wasnt from japan
You could guess it from the covers, yes ... but I just looked at a few Shaman King scans and it's not similiar. 666 Satan is definitly a drawing style like Naruto, you can see that the basics are the same but you can also see different points.Originally Posted by zetsuie
Actually Ruby is the one who keeps Satan in check.necklace is not related to that as much as I know.Originally Posted by ikuroi
it is true that there are too many similar ideas in those mangas but characters are completely different(especially after the timeskips) and there are not much similarities in battle types.That is enough for me.
I think i like 666satan/naruto more because they are so similar. I think it is kinda interesting to see how the same influences manifest themselves in different ways.
