Plagiarizing [Bleach & Incarnate]

Updated on March 4, 2010



So I was some new manga issues on when I FOUND THIS HEADLINE THAT MADE MY BLOOD BOIL ~

So HERe it goes: copied right from

This issue has been all around the MangaWorld... Fans are enraged that Nicholas Adams Tweed Simmons creator of the comic book Incarnate has obviously plagiarized character designs, fight scenes, plot segments, dialogue, poses and expressions from both professional and amateur artists, specifically from both published manga and from art communities such as DeviantArt. 

And the Manga specifically plagiarized was BLEACH... Yep BleachFans you should really start Hating now! 

The power of the manga Fans really brought up the attention of VizMedia, Incarnates Publisher and Even Tite Kubo himself. 

Tite Kubo's Response via Twitter:

"12:07 - I've received tons of comments from fans overseas while I was sleeping stating that there is a manga in America that looks a lot like Bleach. I checked out the site that was all in English and not really knowing what it all said it appears that Gene Simmons' son Nick Simmons wrote a new manga. 

12:08 - Quite frankly, more than whether it looks like it (bleach) or not, I'm more interested in the fact that Gene Simmons' son is a man 

MangaHelpers Translation

Radical Publishing Postpones release of Incarnate, read their response below:

We at Radical Publishing, Inc. and Radical Comics, Inc. are quite concerned to hear the news surrounding Nick Simmons’s Incarnate Comic Book. We are taking this matter seriously and making efforts now to contact the publishers of the works in question in an effort to resolve this matter. We have halted further production and distribution of the “Incarnate” comic book and trade paperback until the matter is resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. Rest assured that Radical is taking swift action regarding this matter and will continue in its efforts to maintain the integrity and protect the intellectual property of artists throughout the world whose creative works are the bedrock of our Company and the comic book industry. 


 Frankly SPEAKING:

As for a starters this is outrageous!! As a loyal bleach fan i couldn't help but wish i got my hands on the neck on the dude responsible for this. I hope that his path and mine don't really cross in the near future for i assure you they is going to be a massacre if that happens. Gene obviously plagiarized Bleach As well as other characters from different series. The SIMILARITY IS OBVIOUS and no one can object on that.

The characters mainly plagiarized are:

Korosaki ichigo

Zaraki kenpatchi

Inuoe orihme

Grim Jow (arancar 6)

hirako shinji ( vizard and ex-captain)

Ichigo's hollow

GEne was not contented by stealing bleach character but also stealing settings, fighting positions, characters and well as color schemes. The issue is a big deal since people should show their own creativity and not steal other people's works. It really makes my blood boil and it makes me want to kick the crap out of that GENE person~

Well kick is an understatement. THE RIGHT WORD would probably be impale in the city square and burn him/her alive. 

COmment on TITE kubo's reply:

I would really want to complement T>K for his respectftul reply because it that happened to me i wouldn't know what i would probably do. TK took this matter in a very respectful manner yet that doesn't mean the issue is going to be forgotten i assure you!!!!!!!!!
