Incarnate artist plagiarizing manga

Comic book artist Nick Simmons, who is the son of famed Kiss bassist, Gene Simmons, has found himself in hot water after scathing complaints of plagiarism. Simmons’ comic book Incarnate is believed to have taken artwork, ideas, and dialogue from manga such as Bleach, Hellsing, Vampire Hunter D, and NANA.

Viz Media is apparently aware of the situation, as is Bleach mangaka Tite Kubo, who has already commented via Twitter. Simmons has not responded to the accusations.

Comparisons of the artwork can be found on the LiveJournal community, Bleachness.

Anime Footwear

Most anime series have loads of merchandise featuring images of the main characters or logos and replicas of items used in those series. There’s a lot of apparel from some of the more popular series; Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Bleach, to name a few. Among the t-shirts, hats and hoodies are the elusive pairs of shoes. While Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! have sneakers tailored towards younger kids, UK based T.U.K. made skate shoes for Fullmetal Alchemist and Bleach along with Fullmetal Alchemist slip-ons. Nike and Bandai teamed up as well to create a limited edition pair of runners based on Naruto for the Japanese youth market.

Hitsugaya Shirt

I think this is a cool shirt, just because Hitsugaya is awesome. Nice colour and Hitsugaya has an awesome pose on the lower right side. There’s also a Bleach logo on the left sleeve too. I don’t think it’s on sale yet, but when it’s on the shelf, I’m gonna get one.

Bleach Skate Shoes

Bleach skate shoes

I finally got the Bleach skate shoes I ordered a few weeks ago. Made by TUK, the shoes are black and white, with a skull print on the sides and a stitched blue, white and red stripes. There’s also another skull embossed in white on the sides as well as one on the bottom. The shoes also come with a pair of black or white laces. The design are very nice and it’s not overwhelmed with flashy colours or emblems. These are pretty cool.

Mine are in size 11, and are very comfy. TUK used the design similar to the Fullmetal Alchemist sneakers made a few years earlier for Hot Topic (I have a pair of those as well).

Unfortunately, there were only 360 pairs made for Viz and were available exclusively on their web site. The shoes are come in men’s sizes 4 through 13.
