Anime or Manga?

Which do you prefer? Anime shows or Manga books? Think about the Anime shows you have seen and if you have read the Manga or vice versa, and which one did you usually prefer?

I prefer anime as long as I haven't read the manga first. For some reason if I read a manga first, even if I don't enjoy it as much as the show, It just ruins my mood for watching the show.

I like both, actually. =| They both have their perks. Normally, I'd go for the manga because I tend to like books more than movies, but I've seen plenty of anime I love. I can't really choose. They're both great in their own ways.

I've watched much more anime than I've read Manga. There's only one were I've read the Manga and watched the Anime, and because I get such a preference to the first way the story goes, I thought the Manga was much better. Well, there was also the fact that the Anime messed up someone's name and had a big inconsistency right at the beginning. I'm not sure if it ever got patched up, I only watched 1 episode, because it had terrible pacing, too. So, I guess the answer is, whatever I watch/read first.

I much prefer manga over anime. I can't concentrate on the T.V. for that long, there is just way too many things to distract me.

I personally lean to anime. I don't need to hold a book and can relax while I watch it. Generally I watch dubs so I don't even have to pay really really close attention. I can do one or two other things while watching it and not miss anything.

It really depends. For Bleach, I'd rather watch it, but for Death Note, I'd rather read it.

I would have to say manga on this one. Generally more story/character development compared to the anime.

Anime or manga. Both have their advantages. I prefer anime simply for the fact that they're shows. Moving animations with voices and actions. However, manga almost always last longer than their anime counter parts. Inu Yasha, for example, which I'm sure everyone here has heard of and seen at least one episode. They figured the anime was getting too long, maybe due to financial reasons or whatever, and cut it off. The manga continued long after, but I think that ended a few years ago. Bastard!! is another example.

I prefer manga because the ones I've read have a better plot compared to the shows (this is my opinion at least). Anime's cool too because it can have an awesome soundtrack.

Typically, when there's a manga, I'd rather read it than watch the anime first. Sometimes the anime is better, however, my favourite anime happen to be standalone as in there was no manga prior. That being said, it usually depends but I feel confident in saying that I prefer the manga. As an artist, I really respect the writers/illustrators work.

Also, manga is convenient in that I don't need to focus all of my attention on it, or I can take it with me very conveniently. Since it's a book, there leaves a little more to the imagination.

I've only read a bit of Manga, and I admit I did enjoy it, but anime occupies me more than manga and the story progresses faster.
