These are the shows heavily inspired by other popular anime and manga. We’re not discounting how good they are but you’ve gotta admit, they do kind of copy them. Expect the likes of Duel Masters, Digimon and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress to make this cut! And remember: Every anime borrows from pre-existing ones, so now one show is guilt free. You’ve got Super Robots following in the footsteps of Mazinger Z and Shonen series copying Dragon Ball Z. Either way, let’s look at some more obvious ones.
