Oh there's nothing wrong with doing the hat trick for inspiration or an idea, but there's a famous quote that goes as follows:

"Good artists borrow, great artists steal."

What this means is that a great arist will build off of what came before them, take ideas and inspiration from other works, and retool and rework them for their own purposes. And it makes sense—in order to become a great artist, you copy techniques developed over the centuries by prior artists. To become a great writer, you read literature and learn about various writing styles, themes, story ideas, and archetypes. Musicians and singers will look towards other's works for inspiration in how to craft a cool sound or how to evoke certain emotions in response to the way the lyrics are sung.

Basically what I'm saying is that a story doesn't have to be whole cloth original-it can wear its influences on its sleeves, and you can synthesize multiple ideas together to come up with more unique ideas that look at things either from a different angle, or that are played entirely straight. It is often the minute differences that will set your story apart from its contemporaries in meaningful ways. Studying various media and practicing writing gives you a better grasp of which ideas are compelling, unique, meaningful, or otherwise evocative.

That's cool but the hat idea is better

I've always wondered why series end up getting scanlated by like, a bunch of different groups in sequence. Is it burnout? Drama? DMCA notices? Something I didn't think of?

Obviously it varies but in my experience yeah, it's mostly just interest for doing it petering out. It's a loooot of work.

I kinda liked it and meant to get back into it after reading some of the pop team epic guy's wixoss manga but just never have.

It's decent, and most people who only watch the anime like it, but I definitely prefer the manga just because the art is so good.

The only manga I've ever read was Hi Score Girl, and I still haven't even finished it yet. I absolutely loved it though, and would like to read more manga if I ever find the time to.

It's a fun romp, regardless of the source. Julias is indeed right that the manga is more visually impressive, but the anime has a je ne sais quoi quality that helps it.

ok before it was just japes but now im actually going to have to turn my full attention to you and tell you to watch the k-on anime and tell me with a straight face that it's better than the manga. You can't do it, you can't see yui in full motion and go back to static yui, you can't see a fully animated fuwa fuwa time and tell me that it's better than words on a page. Your thesis is shallow and easily rebutted. Fly away, troll.

the anime is good yeah, i watched through it last month and it's definitely a favorite. there's some perplexing cgi choices in the first few episodes that got it a bad rep, most notably the infamous bear, but the production values get better each season and it's a good adaptation otherwise.

A lot of really good mecha anime is anime original so I will not agree with this.
