good manga is easier to do than good anime
good LN/WN is easier to do than good manga
this is because the level of expectations, skill level, and people involved decrease as you go from anime --> WN
So I think it fair to say you lose nothing consuming all forms of media as the anime will have things the drama cd won't, the manga will have focus where the anime won't, etc.

I only read manga that are done. I don't want to wait 10 years for someone to get off a fucking boat and then have the author die.

What image viewer does /a/ use for reading manga? Seems like a shit time on the stock windows one. I want something that works similar to the sadpanda webviewer.

>>136184770
If you've got enough of them, you get releases all the time of things you weren't expecting. Either way, reading things that are completed suffices.

>>136184776
That's like barely any anime. The only things I usually bother with are originals, but otherwise it's just manga.
>>
>>136184363
The major difference between the anime and manga industry is that manga don't suffer from low budget. There isn't that much difference from manga and LN in that department.

Also the manga industry is full of shitty works too, at least animators don't waste their time adapting failed manga/LN/VN, for every QUALITY anime there's an even shittier manga plot somewhere.
>>
>>136184709
Same as what the other anons said, there's a lot of good options, but I use Honeyview.
>>
>>136184866
>there's an even shittier manga plot somewhere
And there's orders of magnitude more manga. So well, take your pick.
>>
>>136184140

Manga is the absolute worst medium for any story and its nature of publication has the most potential to destroy any story that could potentially be good.

Manga is a part of the culture of "indefinite serialization". What that means is that all Manga authors are encouraged to take any premise that is successful and to keep it going as long as they can. This means the middle of their stories stretches well past their logical limitations. Manga runs until it is cancelled, so authors are no longer financially invested in telling a good story, but instead, telling one that keeps going for as long as possible.

Manga does not end when it should, it ends when it is cancelled. This perverts and destroys all endings to Manga as they fall into meaningless arcs until cancelled or until interest drops.

>Manga is a part of the culture of "indefinite serialization".
The only thing you're talking about is shitty shounen series or shoujo ones. It doesn't even apply to most monthly manga, let alone much of seinen or josei. Stop reading JUMP garbage.

>all manga is WSJ battle shounen
Stop being a fucking idiot, there are plenty of series that ended in a timely manner. And that's the great thing about manga, that there really is such a huge volume of it to the point that you can't generalize it. Almost anything you're looking for can be found in reasonable quantities.
>>
>watch the one season that gets into anime
>read manga for the rest

If they didn't want you to do it this way, they'd make a season two.
>>
>>136184958
I think you mistook manga for American TV serials.
>>
>>136184958
that sounds nice in theory and all, but in truth it only applies to the biggest moneymakers.
>>
>>136185382
I cannot watch the second season of anything.

Notice how every epic meme/"culture" thread is about anime, and how manga threads are never bad until it the subject gets an adaptation?
/ma/ needs to happen. Animeonlyfags are a scourge on discourse, spending all day sniffing the catalog for fresh blood. They are anti-art, anti-critical thinking, mostly underage, and shitposters. Since this board is basically tumblr already it may was well be made into a containment field for them while the rest of us have a space that makes it difficult for them to shitpost. Its what we all deserve.
>>
>>136185476
The only reason it is any good is because it's under duress. Mangafags will actually recommend shit because they actually want to talk about their shit more. Once there's another board, it's the same old circlejerks and all the shitposting is now on manga instead. I already hate whenever manga threads devolve into BEST GIRL threads, but at least they start off with decent discussion or they die when they're supposed to.
>>
>>136184140
I do both because I'm not brain damaged.
>>
>>136185476
this, kill them all. The reason why anime fans create the negative image in both the general fandom and medium.
>>
>>136184140
But the KnB anime has been mostly pretty good. But yeah the manga is better.

youre fucking wrong.

stop you cancerous fuck.
posts like these will only make people rwad manga to try to fit in. just like it happens with anime
manga is very diverse, i'd rather they start at their own niche and then discover the whole range.

Which threads are you talking? OPT are full of that garbage. They're just another shitty general that lots of people don't bother with anymore.
>>
>>136185476
Remember when everyone liked OPM?
>>
>>136186278
The ONE threads are still fine. All the secondaries come after translator-san dumps the translations because they don't stick around /a/.
>>
>>136186314
And Murata fanboys have been shitposting OPM for a while now. Long before the anime there were Goku vs Saitama threads. Even daily for a while.
>>
>>136185849
no, I'm not. I said expectations decrease for LNs in the first place. No one expects LNs to be anything but simple with girls and some art shoved in, while Manga has a much more complex audience and is considered art like Jack Black, Berserk, etc. LNs to my knowledge don't sell to seinen readers.
>>136184866
>for every QUALITY anime there's an even shittier manga plot somewhere.
Shit is shit no matter what
>>
>>136186359
the shitposting began when the anime was announced
>>
>>136186523
Fucking lies. I've been here since Boon translated the manga. Nearly every dump thread since it started translations. People have been pretending to hate on Murata for ages, just so they would shut up.
>>
>>136186632
nor that guy but i'm pretty sure the comparison threads didn't exist at that time.
>>
>>136186710
When mangafox picked up on OPM, and it was number 1 on all the shitty reader sites, yes, there were Superman vs Saitama threads, and whatever else. The threads themselves existed since the beginning, but they were daily at that point.
>>
>>136186824
>mangafox picked up on OPM
???
>>
>>136186960
When all the kids on mangafox found a series which joked at all their favourite battle shounen and had pretty images, the series rocketed to #1 in popularity and most other manga sites. Is that clear enough for you?
>>
>>136187009
You do realize that mangafox doesn't translate shit and they don't "pick up" anything, right?
>>
>>136187009
No doubt they probably tried shilling oppai hoodies or something as well on their illegal merch store.

Where was that ever implied?

By mangafox, I referred to the entire community. How was that wrong for an umbrella term?
