Personally, I prefer watching anime because I like the actions and sound effects in the anime. For manga, I do not like it because it is normally black and white and there are no sound effects. What about you? Do you prefer anime?

I like anime too. The sound effects, dialogues, moving characters, and funny facial expressions really does give life to the anime series. I also prefer anime than manga but there are some difference to the original manga in the anime so its also nice to read the manga. Its kinda like reading a book before it becomes a movie or the other way around, just to see how the book and the movie compare to each other.

Yeah, same for me. I prefer watching anime because I can listen to the sound, looking at the movements and the effect of fighting scenes. It is more exciting watching anime.

Definitely.^_^ They just add to the overall effect. Its nice to imagine scenes sometimes but in order to fully experience what the series/manga is about, its a lot better with moving characters and dramatic effects.^_^

I mean the anime version sometimes more boring than the comic version such as DN Angel, samurai deeper kyo but sometimes the anime version better than comic such as bleach (although in anime many scene addition, but I can understand their movement more clear than the comic version)

You are right. Managa is more boring. That is why I like anime.

Vandread Manga - Two volumes and one special manga were written, serving as an alternate storyline to the canonical anime series. The manga takes a vastly different approach to the story, with several characters reinvented, and new ones added.

Honestly, I really prefer manga over anime since some themes can only be presented in manga while on their anime counterparts, would either be altered, toned down or simply removed so that it can be safe to be viewed by most viewers. Some stories in the manga get changed due to that and some details too. On the other hand, there are times when a particular series would be released first in anime and then its manga medium would follow later on. A good example for a particular series like that would be Vandread

I understand that in anime, some of the thing might be altered but I still prefer anime. I will read the manga if some of the important parts are modified in the anime.

Of course, everyone has their reasons for being interested with the things that they like and preferring either manga or anime and groups for each one can be relentless upon discourse in stating which one is better or not at all. Hey, thanks! (^_^ )

If an anime series would come from a manga series then I would really prefer the manga. I like reading the manga because it is more consistent with the original ideas of the author unlike in anime wherein a lot of ideas of the author are changed. Also in anime there are a lot of filler episodes (naruto and bleach for example)that make it uninteresting. For now I read more manga than watch anime because I hate filler episodes.

Hi, You are right. I do not like filler episodes too. I am willing to wait for the anime version. So, I will just watch the filler episodes.

i prefer manga over anime because the drawings are more detailed..also they add some scenes in the anime which are not necessary and they put too much drama in it..the episodes i watch in anime are usually battle episodes..for anything else i read the manga for the full plot..

I prefer anime because of the sound effects and movements. I do not like manga very much because it is black and white.

i agree. i like anime. in manga all the sweet battles and scenes are minimalized because the emphasis is not expressed properly.

manga is better! because in anime too much detail ignored and also i like to move back to previous page to read again some conversations or reading fast when i didn't really like the story.. you cannot do something like that with anime :D

Depends on the Anime/Manga. But most of the time I read and watch. Both are entertaining and interesting.

Hi, I don't like to read manga. It is hard to read and hard to imagine the actions.

I much prefer anime compared to manga, it really is exciting to see the action in the manga really come to life on screen! But the disdvantage is that animes tend to lag the manga storylines, and oftentimes, it lags by quite a bit.

I have the same feeling too. I like sound effect, actions and colors in the anime. It makes the stories more interesting.

i would prefer anime because i like to see moving animations rather than just pictures. my friends tell me that the manga is usually more interesting and more detailed though, as compared to anime. Also, anime also adds in a lot of filler episodes which has nothing to do with the manga. These filler episodes are often not as good as the main storyline itself

I have the same feeling like you. I want to see the movements and effect in anime. If I am reading manga, I can actually see the effect. I like anime because it has sound effect too.

hi, If I have free manga to read, I would read manga too. Normally, if I want to read manga, I need to spend money to buy it. So, I prefer watching anime because I can watch online or borrow anime from my friends.

I love both. Why?: Because when an anime ends it continues in some mangas. I love watching anime but I also love reading it as well if it has ended or no more episodes are being released.
