Why is every manga superior to their anime adaption?
I was waiting for the train and decided to read the manga of that one show I started watching the evening before and holy shit it's just so much better.

pic unrelated since I didn't read it yet
>>
Because adaptations are by definition shit.

We say lol secondaries for a reason
>>
>>120873918
>every manga
>pic unrelated
>>
>>120873918
For whatever reason I find manga infinitely more enjoyable.
The only time I prefer an adaption is for touching scenes that make me want to cry. Anything else I prefer reading source material because it will be way more enjoyable.

That's wrong though.
Bad thread, apply yourself next time.

I can't judge something I didn't read you retard, although it probably is better as well.

From what I've read it was pretty bad.

But they're quite rare.
>>
>>120881426
But that's not a manga adaption anon
>>
>>120876884
It depends, but it's generally mediocre and sometimes it's outright shit. Don't read the Cowboy Bebop one.
>>
>>120873918
As a rule of thumb an adaption is never as good as the original or better, but there are exceptions.
>>
>>120876884
Mostly terrible shit.
Same goes for LN to manga ones but, unlike the anime to manga selection, there is a bunch of properly done ones in the midts of all that crap.
And few actually outstanding series.
>>
That's because anime is made just as by-products of manga, and only animes which end up to be commercialy succesful, like Naruto or One Piece can actually allow to follow the original maga till the end.
The rest gets only very poor treatment and has to be cut off after the first few volumes of the manga and is mostly consumed by hardcore otakus who like their waifus colorful and screaming in cute voices. Why do you think 99% of anime are manga adaptations? Because they can't afford their own screeplayers or character designers.
>>
>>120873918
Source material is almost always better than the adaptation.
>>
>>120876884
There's Gundam: The Origin and... I got nothing.
>>
planetes
>>
>>120873918
Because the original writer/artist are the one with the real talents, duh.

The people in charge of the adaptation try to emulate but they can never be as good as the original, emulation is very skillful.
>>
>>120884237
This, anime staffs with real talent do their own original content.
>>
>>120873918
>>120876884
Original source is always better than any adaptation, or at least a 99% of time it is, the only adaptation that I have knowledge is better than the original source is SnK, so there may be more of this cases.
>>
>>120873918
because most of the material is left out, so you have to go read the manga when the anime leaves you less than halfway the manga and with a shitty original ending. FUCK YOU I`m looking at you "needless"
>>
>>120878562
Came here to say this. The adaptation is so much better it's actually impressive. Almost no cut content, either, as far as I know.
>>
>>120884848
I wouldn't say much better, but it's a pretty good adaptation, as much as the manga.
>>
>Implying I give a fuck about black and white gook comics

>Has an anime version of the Manga/LN and seems like I might enjoy it

I'll download it and give it a try

>No anime version

Why would I care? It's not immersive and fun.

Not 100% true, but FMA is a brutal example of the manga being superior to either anime.

YrYr is way better as a manga. Namori is just magnificent at everything she does.

I can't imagine giving a fuck about Attack on Titan if I read it. The awesome fights are the only thing that I'm interested in and the animation is great.

Manga is than the vast majority of their animes.

Light novels are often worse than their adaptations. Infinite Stratos and Haganai (the manga is better) immediately come to mind.
>>
I can't stand 4koma like Azumanga Daioh and K-on, it is just so easy to get distracted or bored.

The only anime adaptation I would deem superior to its source material is Gintama

Samurai Champloo is really bad. If you like the show then you will hate the manga. Just look at how shitty this looks.

On the other hand, anime adaptions are always superior to LNs. Why do you think this is, /a/?

It's fairly rare that an adaptation is worse than its source material, at least when it comes to manga -> anime. Sometimes the adaptation truly is just that poor or shoots itself in the foot somehow but the vast majority of the time the anime is superior.

Things anime has:

>color
>animation
>sound effects
>voice acting
>music

Things manga doesn't have:

>color
>animation
>sound effects
>voice acting
>music

Let the abilities of the mediums speak for themselves and which is superior becomes clear.
>>
>>120893637
I'm almost afraid you typed that out seriously.
>>
>>120891362
Buy it or read it officially on ComicWalker.
>>
>>120894227

It is quite serious. I don't see how you can disagree with it, either, unless you're saying that color, animation, sound effects, voice acting, and music have no effect whatsoever on the quality of a work.
>>
>>120894658

I quite seriously watch anime for the sound effects
>>
What about manga and anime adaptations of video games? There is a lot of stuff based on video games but I can't think of a single one that would be better than the game itself.
>>
>>120895039

The game -> anime transition is much rougher, because you are losing an important element of the original work (the gameplay). The reason manga -> anime adaptations work so well is that anime is basically just manga but more complex and deep in the ways it can present itself, just by the inherent traits of the medium.

What about Manga to Manga adaption
>>
>>120874209
Cut content doesn't always mean bad adaption. You can't possibly cram every single thing into the anime.
good studios cut parts that are least important if it means that it will make the overall experience better
>>
>>120894658
>not imagining your own voices, music, and sound effects while you're reading manga
>>
>>120894658
Just adding these dimensions doesn't necessarily make it better for me. I care more about how they use it. Color, for example. If we're talking Gankutsuou, it matters, but if we're talking Parasyte (which is not bad but not on par with the source material), it's not particularly relevant. And it's not a coincidence that Gankutsuou was anime-original - something made for a given medium is more likely to exploit that medium properly, because a lot of adaptations don't take the different capacities of print and animation into account.
>>
>>120881244
If you think this, you're not good at reading manga. Get a better imagination.
>>
>>120895202
Much needed. You ever seen a web comic drawn better than the manga? Shiiiit. Its the same with horimiya and the guy who made ojojojo and icuwmhis
>>
>>120895573

I read Parasyte a while back, but dropped the adaptation two episodes in for one major reason - the music was unbearable. The dubstep was placed seemingly randomly and did not fit with the tone of the scene nor did anything flow well with the music. Also, the CG crowds were absolutely disgusting.

But Parasyte is one of these fairly uncommon adpatations that just does something so badly the source material is more appealing. Had these elements that detracted immensely from the quality of the show not been present, I see no reason why the anime adaptation wouldn't have been superior.
