So? And it doesn't mean that the theme of the manga isn't like what we are shown in the anime either. Though personally, saying crap like "x ripped off y" is redundant and causes unnecessary friction. Try "x is similar to y" instead.

I don't really think Scryed has much in common with needless though other than the fact they feature people fighting with special powers. It lacked the comedy and the flare.

Though I can't really say I recall any other series like Needless being similar to anything else other than Gurren Lagann.

Maybe Busou Renkin is another option for consideration.
