A series you're interested in has an anime and a manga. The manga came out first and is way ahead of the anime.
Do you read the manga or watch the anime?
I used to watch the anime first, but ever since I started reading manga, I try my best to stick entirely with the manga unless it came out first as an anime. TTGL is a good example of this.
I stick with the source material when possible then follow any adaptations to see how it turns out or in the case of manga/ln -> anime, seeing everyone moving around and voiced.
>then watch anime fight scenes
Anime fight scenes are usually worse because they try to use the high impact scenes from the manga but lack the impact due to the style change and don't flow as well.
>animation doesn't flow as well as still images
Manga because 90% of the good shit will never be animated, and if it does get animated it will look like shit.
Plus I can get stupid high and listen to whatever music fits the theme.
Too many things affecting the production of the anime. QUALITY, fillers, minor and major rewrites, differences in pacing, etc. Usually it's just the music I enjoy, and I can listen to it while reading the manga. Sometimes the anime turns out well but it's so rare I tend not to bother.
Gantz is fuckin one of a kind and you'll never see anything like it published again.
I prefer manga mostly cause of the selection and the art looks better.
There are some good Animes as well but if i had to choose one i would go Manga.
SO FUCKING THIS
lately /a/ been a little bit casual
>implying the two pages it took to go super saiyan 3 was anywhere near as amazing as this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKjKrjTWDBg
I still reenact this scene whenever I'm super constipated.
I don't think that I or anyone can say that one is always better than the other, but personally, I'm both a musicfag and a seiyuufag, so in the case that the manga and anime for a particular series are more or less equally good, I may prefer the anime.
But this still isn't a simple question. There are tons of times when the anime and manga are quite different, making one better than the other. And even in cases where they both follow the same story, the animation staff and director can potentially greatly improve or kill a series's appeal.
You have no idea what you're on about you filthy secondary.
It's not the animation, it's the fact manga fights are limited by the panels so they stick with a few high impact scenes, in reality or in movement they'd look like shit so they don't translate well to an animated medium.
>It's not the animation
>in movement they'd look like shit
>gaijin killing sprees
>refrences of gang rape
Sure it had it's share of flaws like any series but you're not going to see seinen manga like it published ever again with the present day censoring.
I prefer anime. You get voiced, animated characters, and they leave a much bigger impression.
I always read too fast, so the scenes in manga feel like they are on fast forward.
Manga first. If the Anime is a travesty or is shit I don't watch it. As it should be. Adaptations have the potential to be better than the source material but it's almost never the case.
>I always read too fast, so the scenes in manga feel like they are on fast forward.
I have this problem, too. I also have the problem of only reading the words and not looking at the scenes or just glancing at them, so I miss a lot of what's going on.
I remember finishing a whole chapter of Bleach in less than a minute.
>a huge list of,
>there is no
>other word for this,
>juvenile, edgy, shit.
I doubt that, but I'm fine with not seeing anything like it again, because, yeah, I am not enamored with Gantz because I am not a teenager.
Read the manga, then when you feel like rereading it however many months later, watch the anime.
Retard. Also, the only reason to watch the anime first is if you want voices and animation. Anime is usually cut to hell, so you're missing out on so many things. Best thing to do is read the manga then watch the anime to experience the best of both worlds.
shounenfags are the worst kind of fags
Mango = original animu > LN adaptation animu >>>>>>>>>> mango adaptation animu
manga is a god tier medium to convey a story and theme that normally wouldn't get greenlit from anime studio, anime is too strict with budgeting and censoring.
Most manga adaptation anime are look like shit,(shounen battle anime are literally "talk no jutsu")
The ONLY way to enjoy anime is to watch the original one or LN adaptation anime
manga : god tier
original anime : good tier
LN adaptation anime : okay tier
manga adaptation anime : shit tier
People are legitimately defending light novels, christ, I know /a/ loves all that garbage but you'd think these people know they're reading garbage and acknlowledge it, nah, ya'll fucking delusional thinking light novels are actually worth something from a literary stand point or have decent writing and whatnot.
I don't care about Manga AT ALL. I will only read once I run out of Anime to watch which is impossible.
>I don't care about Manga AT ALL
Ohh you poor soul, I'll pray for you.
I don't need your fucking prayers.
Legit how can someone get to +600 anime and not get into manga. I mean its only natural that around 200 or 300 anime you come to realize how fucking shitty and awful anime is an make thte switch to manga which is objectively better for the most part and stop watching anime almost completely. So I mean, I can only come to the conclusion your mind is filled with shit and you like garbage of any kind, whatever makes you happy man, I wish I enjoyed anything and everything is this world as you.
Who the fuck has time to watch shitty anime anyways
Unless you're a fucking neet with no life whatsover
More anons with some sense.
Is that seriously what you liked about gantz?
I don't watch as much anime as I read manga.
If it's good it's good, but if it's based off of a manga then it seems redundant.
So original stuff, or if there's something exceptional about the animated adaptation then I'll watch.
That's simply what set it apart from others.
>implying japan has ever cared about baby dicks
Look at shin chan
I recall my american dvd version of dragon ball as a kid a fake copypasted looking underwear on goku when he was naked though.
You people do know that manga is a story told and illustrated in the way a single person imagined and dreamed it to be
When i get hooked on a story it is because of the wonderful feeling it provokes in me
The characters, the story, the dialogues and the world it all takes place in originated in the mind of the mangaka
It is his vision it is his piece of art
When it falls into hands of greedy people it deviates completely from it's orginal purpose
So fuck anime and all them greedy fuckers
If you prefer anime than i can assume you don't get what this is about
Godtier: Watching the first episode of an anime to see if it interests you, then marathoning through all the manga, leaving you feeling listless and unsatisfied by the rest of the anime adaptation.
Looking forward to new Gintama anime, if it comes. But that's only because Sunrise puts some effort into it or so it seems. Anyways, it's only one exception out of hundreds of anime.
I was about to roughly say the same. Of course, manga authors/artists are still limited on what they can do by their editors and such, but they much more of a set goal then anime writers.
Although that doesn't mean that all anime have shitty writing, everything's possible.
i would say it is enjoyable, but quality wise it's poor
the only redeemable factor is sugita voice acting
it's inferior compared to original material and only served as a complement nothing more
Kagaku na Yatsura's OVA was... well, not so funny like the manga is. Sometimes, the source is better than the adaptation.
Example: Black Bullet. In the anime you could only blow up lolis in episode 10; in the Light Novel you beaten, humilliated and raped lolis in the same part.
>opening and ending songs are the only music used in the anime
The music is fucking brilliant.
I see someone hasn't actually read LNs. They have absolutely no quality control for this shit
Not that anon but for example, In the One Piece anime, Luffy's punches don't seem to have much impact, cuz they show it stretching forward at a digital rate instead of flying forward quickly like a punch does. It's less the anime and the fact that it's just...not WELL animated some times for the sake of padding and budget.
