Kimi no Na wa “Definitely A Rip-Off”

KiminoNawa-Ripoff-Accusations-2-2

Further “proof” has emerged that the widely acclaimed Kimi no Na wa has ripped off Niji-Iro Hotaru, with the accuser seeming to be rather desperate to get others to condemn the profitable film – while others may yet state that the individual has too much time on their hands.

The accusatory video:

This time the scenery of a matsuri event has been accused of bearing “inexcusable” similarities, with most internet denizens seemingly still remaining unconvinced on the matter…

    Maybe this is why the director hates his own movie and tells us not to like it.

    Ripping off, plagiarism, tribute, whatever.

    I genuinely enjoyed the movie. This wont change how i felt about it at all.

    This is sad. But it's life as usual in Japan. There's plagiarism in music, in literature and, yes, in Academia.

    I have to wonder why it took them so long to notice the supposed plagiarism and post about it. Or how nobody else noticed until now.

    I think the order+angle+timing of the scenes is pretty suspicious, although the original version has extra scenes in-between.

    It's possible Shinkai could have "copied" the scenes from memory, while forgetting where he originally saw those scenes.

    Because it wasn't released on BD earlier.

    (This means the material to make up the comparisons wasn't available unless you took a video cam into the cinema.)

    I've seen all those same scenes in just about every other anime I've watched too. Curvy road, festival, lanterns. It's all the same shit in everything. It's pretty and represents Japan.

    It seems a lot of these accusers don't understand the difference between plagiarism and paying homage. I can assure you that a legend such as Shinkai Makoto would be of the latter.

    It's not even a homage. I think he's saying that the accusations are of thing that are extremely common.

    shinkai makes nothing but generic-looking japanicana with no personality in it. of course it looks like every other anime that's taken place in contemporary japan.

    can we talk about how Hosoda's most popular movie is literally a remake of the exact same movie he made a few years prior? now that's brazen.

    Out of curiosity, what do you consider good anime then? Personally I love pretty much everything Shinkai has made so if there's something else out there that's better it'd be great to know.

    I like animation that takes advantage of the medium. All of Shinkai's stuff feels like it could have just been live action. The character designs are bland, there's no visual wonder at all, and the cinematography is flat and by the books. All his films are about Japanese Everyman/Everygirl in Real Life Japan, being Emotional. They're Nicholas Sparks movies p much. You look at stuff by Ghibli and Satoshi Kon and even Hosoda, and these movies are stale toast.

    Art is not just being original. You can be original and make random shit. What sets Makoto Shinkai apart is putting his back into quality, few anime can rival the visual aesthetic of a Shinkai.

    His visuals are pretty lame. The only good looking thing in his movies is background art which is ruined by lack of animation in it or mostly no animation at all. Its pretty average tbh, I have seen way better movies.

    Artists use other's work as a foundation for theirs all the time, American comic book artists do it all the time and it is even taught to them to do so. Most of Superman's images were of another hero. Only the ignorant, not linked to the proffessional art world, think it's wrong to do so.

    People don't realize that in the art world, that's an acceptable, and even taught tactic, so they take to the internet to become a "hero" fighting some injustice, calling out artists when they find these type of things. Comic book artists are taught this before anything else, most poses, character shapes, and scenes, were already used in other comics. It's not plagerism if the content was changed enough to where it's no longer the original. Artists use other's work all the time as a foundation to build on their work, it's only looked down apon by the consumer, heck, artists give away their work for that sole purpose.

    Of course it's plagiarized. It's what Japanese do. They stole their letters from the Chinese, they took Buddhism, too. And pretty much everything else and then made it their own. Like tea ceremonies and stuff. It's cool, nobody cares if they plagiarized it, just like no one cares if people watch fansubs.

    Logograms are not letters. And a good number of original kanji were created and only used in Japan (kokuji).

    Doesn't your argument essentially mean that the Americans (and others) stole English from the English?

    No, Americunts used to be English but then cut their ties. Okay, some of them weren't, those adopted the language. Adopted, the friendly word for taking. The unfriendly word for taking is stealing.

    Japan didn't take Buddhism, the Buddhists came to Japan to convert the Japanese.

    Except Buddhism was introduced (read forced) by the Tenno back in the days.

    Are you implying China is any different? Because Mao was pretty thorough in removing every shred of culture and individuality in the name of communism. It's a sea of meat robots now.

    I bet even matsuris are plagiarized, I mean, they all look the same! Surely a truly creative artsy guy invented one and then all the loosers started plagiarizing it to look like cool guys!

    Oh and their mainland is china too.. get a life f a g, china has to hate their own relatives quite obviously cause they are too retarded to remember history class...nvm they teach lies in history class on the "mainland". yet again china has no shame flourishing with massive copies everything from the iPhone...to software and anime/manga.

    Who stole Buddhism again ? don't bring that bull sh!t here , Buddhisms(Theravada) origin is in India and was then spread to Sri lanka(Theravada)& Myanmar(Theravada) which followed true to Buddha's teachings, regardless that nor china or japan has any true right to Buddhism due their alteration to the entire religion itself(Mahayana aka the falsification/alteration of Buddha's teachings) yet again the typical "claim of ownership" over something you don't even have the right to talk ownership about nor even know of about its prayers and what they even meaning, ignorance is bliss especially for those who believe in the altered Buddhism.
