Do you prefer manga or anime

Manga are japanese comics and anime are japanese cartoons (often based on the comics) What do you prefer and what series do you like to read/watch? I personally prefer manga, because even though you can see fights better in the anime, the manga is usually farther in the story and is more portable. I like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece and Death Note.

I like both manga and anime, but I like anime more because I'll watch it more than once, but I do buy osme manga, but only if it's really good. I'll get the manga if it's not available on DVD and it's a really good story.

I love them both but I prefer manga more. I like it since I was small, love to read it and I think that the way they describe the characters in manga is more real

I like mangas better, well for one, you could actually get the real story of the manga. Because sometimes mangas are different from the anime and usually, when these stuff happens the manga is better than the anime. However, there are also some disadvantages of reading mangas. Like for example if you are reading some action-packed manga, it is difficult to decipher the action sequences. Unlike in the anime when they are moving and you can clearly see what is going on. Also, anime has sound effects which at some point help the viewer internalize what's going on with the series.

Both are good. Sometimes manga has things that animes skip, and sometimes anime has things not included in the manga. The manga is better for people that like to visualize, and anime is for people that just want to watch something.

I prefer manga more than anime since its seems like the manga can deliver more story content than that of the anime series which would be summed up to each episode. Sometimes, certain parts in the manga would be altered to be viewable in the anime too. I think manga is more original but, there are cases wherein the anime came out first before the manga. The manga just provides more details for me.

I prefer the anime because as you said, the action scenes are better. My favorite anime and only one I thought worth buying on DVD is Wolf's Rain.
