According to Akadot the Shoujo Manga ‘Flower of Eden’ by Yuki Suetsugu is being accused of Plagiarism due to huge similarities mostly in the artwork with Takehiko Inoue's SLAM DUNK. The discovery which was made on postings on the internet message board 2CH (now famous as the site where Densha Otoko originated), led Kodansha to apologize for the matter and as a fact printing of all of Suetsugu's comics has been cancelled, and those in stores will be withdrawn. Suetsugu has already admitted to a number of the accusations, and has apologized for her lack of moral and judgment in a public statement made on the Kodansha Website.
