Do you agree that Masashi Kishimoto (Naruto) copied the great Yoshihiro Togashi (Yu Yu Hakusho)?

Here are some of the IDEAS he stole. 1. Yusuke and Naruto both start off as loners with no one to guide them in life. Yusuke hangs out in the roof of his school, while Naruto sat on a swing all alone. 2. Both Yusuke & Naruto possess hidden powers that were granted by their ancestors. 3. Early in the anime... show more Here are some of the IDEAS he stole.

1. Yusuke and Naruto both start off as loners with no one to guide them in life. Yusuke hangs out in the roof of his school, while Naruto sat on a swing all alone.
2. Both Yusuke & Naruto possess hidden powers that were granted by their ancestors.
3. Early in the anime Keiko gets part of her hair burned; in the Chunin exams, sakura is forced to cut her hair.
4. The 9 tailed fox in Naruto is identical to how Kurama looked in his fox form.
5. Kishimoto copied the whole idea of having a tournament similar to Yuyu Hakusho's. The Chunin exams were very similar to the genkai tournament. The forest that the little Naruto characters went through is very similar to the Forest of Death in Yuyu Hakusho. Also, team Kakashi encounters Orochimaru in the center of the forest, likewise, Yusuke encounters and evil spider.
6. The whole shadow clone jutsu and the posture Naruto takes are identical to Susaku's technique "prism of seven".
7. Toguro's relationship with Yusuke is the same as the one between Itachi and Sasuke. Like Toguro cared for Yusuke, Itachi cared for Sasuke and he knew that one day he would grow strong and take his life.
8. Hiei and Sasuke are very similar. They're dark characters with irritating tempers, and layed back personalities.
9. In the Dark Tournament, Chu has special abilities when he's drunk. This is identical to how drunk Rock Lee behaved when he fought Kimimaru. Even the movements are the same.
10. The whole idea of barriers in Naruto (like the sound ninja 4 when they infiltrated Konoha) is the same as Shishiwakamaru's Cage of Hell.
11. (This is an ovbious one) Elder Toguro's immortality is the same as Hidan from Naruto. Both of them get trapped and destined to suffer for iternity.
12. Neji's gentle fist technique is identical to the Evil doctor's technique. The doctor's name is Minoru Kamiya, and he is seen with Sensui after the Dark Tournament.
13. Yusuke's ancestor (father) looks a lot like Jiraya from Naruto.
14. Deidara's bomb technique is similar to karasu's bomb technique that he used against Kurama.
15. When Yusuke fought Toguro, he took off handcuffs that hid his real power. Also Bui took his heavy armor to show his true strenght. Similarly, Rock Lee took weights that he had in his legs to increase his speed.

There are many other things in which Kishimoto stole from Togashi. All in all, Yu Yu Hakusho is the best anime of all time.

lol... I bet if Togashi would've made Yusuke take a dump in the anime, Kishimoto would've made Naruto do the same.
