do you like to read manga. if so why? wouldn't you prefer to see the anime? There's a diference between the story in the manga book and the anime. in the book the story is just like the creator imagined it and you can easily understand the story and infos of it, but it's hard to follow a fight. In the anime, fights are better because you can se clearly what's going on but the infos is badly explained! What's your oppinion?

My opinion about that is if I read manga I will learn more about the story and the ideas of the author but for the sake of the story they create the anime to adapt the parts that in the manga is more difficult to understand and obvious the fights are better in the anime and we have the voices in the anime but in the manga we have to imagine the voices but for me if I follow the anime and the manga I will understand more.Sometimes the anime ends and we have to follow the manga until the end but in that point we understand more the story because we already experienced the anime and we know how is the style of fight, so for me is indifferent

in my experience in the world of manga and anime, i would never really enjoy one without the other. the naime is meant to complete the holes and give live to the characters that we like and enjoy to know about. i really like to read mangas, but anime gives us the life and the effects that make the action come out of the screen.

Well some manga that I like don't have anime, like Kaichou wa Maid-sama (and the manga is actually better than the title sounds) And a lot of anime are based on the manga, but don't follow the storyline, like Fullmetal alchemist (first one) which ended in a really creative but awkward way... like the brothers end up in a different world, I was just like WTF

I love to read manga, I started reading comic and them added manga on. I still watch anime. A lot of the manga I read is not action ( I watch a lot of action anime ) so it not a problem to follow the action. Although to be far I haven't had a problem following the action ( guess it because I read a lot of comics ) I really think both manga and anime are equal, to be honest I don't always watch and read the same things. No real reason on some titles I do and some I don't. Depends on my mood. ( also my wallet if I'm watching a show I will often get a different manga, so I get more titles in )
