  1. 1. Which do you like better? Anime or Manga?



Recommended Posts

Years later...I still feel the same way. Anime over Manga. The only times I'll read a manga is if there no anime for it, there's major differences between the anime and manga, or if they are almost completely different (like Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and 5Ds for example). I prefer the visuals and sound. Now....if I'm at a job where I'm at a desk and cant browse the internet last a job I had 2 years ago.....then ok I'll read any manga lol.

EDIT: Just had a half hour argument with my gf who says that watching an anime over manga is lazy >_>. Yea....fuck that.

I love both. I prefer mangas because the story is much more in depth and usually contains more details and such. I prefer anime because I love seeing the characters and story in motion instead of just using my imagination.

How can people chose manga over anime?

Yeah I get it mangas are more complete and all. But IMO, It's somewhat the same as picking a CD over a USB. this is just another proof how technology is getting better and better, and I think this is just one of those transitions that are difficult for other people to accept.

This is a silly post.

That's like saying, "Why use a laptop when you can use a desktop! They're so much more powerful!" Or, "Why use a desktop when you can use a laptop! Laptops are convenient and mobile!"

You just can't say anime is a direct upgrade to manga. That's just.

Why.

Anime has its entertainment value. Manga has its own. Once upon a time, I used to read manga quite voraciously, which cost a pretty penny for my father since the books generally sold for ten bucks a pop. But my interest in anime? Virtually nil, even at the peak of my fangirling for sweet bishounen and bishoujo. It rarely extended beyond moderate interest in movies like Spirited Away and My Neighbour Totoro. Even when I lived in Japan I didn't care much for anime itself.

Manga is definitely better. It doesn't leave anything out the anime, and it gets right to the point. Sometimes it takes way too long for an anime to get through a part.

I never thought about comparing manga and anime, those were two differents media to me, but lately, I have started to read more comics and less manga, but still i never get tired of watching a good anime.

So i guess that's my answer

As long as there are no fillers in the anime, I prefer watching the anime. For instance, the FMABrotherhood anime was marvelous. But if there are spoilers and way too many of them, then I prefer the Manga.
