That moment when someone accuses Goku’s character traits of being copied from Luffy’s character traits
Because you know, that jerk thief Toriyama time-traveled to the future and stole some of Oda’s character ideas.
And it’s not like Oda hasn’t riddled references to Toriyama through his work.
Toriyama ought to have designed his characters better in a way that couldnt be easily improved upon and serve as an easy inspiration for others. Surely you all could agree that he could aimed for a higher state of originality.
He used archetypes, so it’s not that someone took the characters that he created and moved forth with them, it’s that other writers have used the same archetypes but have done it, in your own opinion, better than Toriyama did.
He also kind of ushered in the era of fight manga, so he created what’s essentially the base of everything that gets done in the series that came out thereafter. At this point it’s inevitable that parallels will be drawn, and there will always be people trying harder to do it better, and many of them will succeed.
Sounds like a certain mangaka was an inspiration to other mangaka after all.
