    Which do you prefer anime or manga?

    For me I prefer manga more. To me thats the original and where the story was first created (although this isn't always the case, just mostly) ^-^
    Although I do like to watch anime, especially for the fight scenes which sometimes can be hard to make out in the mangas.

    If given a choice for a series between anime and manga, I will go with manga. The reason is that when you base an anime off something else, you end up having to adapt the storyline to a season based schedule, which ends up restricting the original story to blocks of a given length.

    The exceptions to this are if the story of an anime was originally created with this schedule in mind, then the end product will generally be very good. Also possible is the episodic anime which consist of many little arcs rather than one large arc. These types of anime I find less restricted by the season schedules.

    Manga (and light novels) are published without any such restrictions on the author, so the stories tend to be closer to how an author envisons them.

    If the series was a manga originally, then the manga. But if the series is like Code Geass, which was an anime first, then the anime. But as the majority of anime series were manga before, its usually the manga that I'll read. Besides, sometime the animators screw up the series... Fullmetal Alchemist, for example Frustration

    Manga is the best to me because you get to see what the author originally wanted it to be.

    An anime is still good because you get to see those thoughts (even if they are sometimes screwed up) in action

    Manga. Definitely. The story's a lot better than the anime and I like reading more than watching a video. Smile

    Manga is better because there is more detail!
