>still preferring anime over manga
I jump between the two.
I'll stop watching anime for a while and only read manga until a new series catches my eye, then it's the reverse and I stop reading manga until berserk comes off hiatus.
But a lot anime don't end so much as stop. Notoriously so, I'd say. It's no secret that most shows are just advertisement for the source material and rarely adapts up to the end.
Besides, there's a plethora of actually completed manga to read. There's far more stuff than one could reasonably expect to finish, so saying "I only read finished series" really doesn't say that much.
If I get the choice between reading a manga as it comes out or watching an anime as it airs, I'll go for the anime.
On the other hand for a finished series I'm more inclined towards the manga than its adaption.
I prefer manga and recognise the source is literally always better than adaptions, however in spite of that I still find anime easier to consume, especially if it's currently airing. There are a lot of series that I'll start reading after finishing the adaption though, so I guess they're doing their job in that regard. Older stuff I'll typically pick the source material if given the choice.
i wish it had more going on than just a bunch of images loosely connected together
i also wish this was a femdom thread but oh well
How about this for extra salt?
>manga gets anime
>threads ruined forever
>manga becomes shittier because he want to pander to animefags (More mindless actionshit in shonen, more shipping in seinen, etc)
>manga is ruined forever and gets a shit ending
Because if you look at what are the best works among both anime and manga it's always original anime and those do have endings: Eva, Lain, Kaiba, Utena, Casshern, Angel's egg, Kyousou Giga, Princess Tutu, Haibane Renmei, FLCL, Bebop, TTGL etc.
Animation makes it several times more interesting: stylized movement, editing and shot transitions. If it at least had color, I mean french comic books are beautiful.
>hear about anime
>research adaptation versus original
What's the solution?
Only the most mainstream of the mainstream shit is translated and I just don't enjoy it enough to learn nip.
Even stuff that is translated wallows in year long delays relative to raws.
takes 20 minutes to watch an episode whereas you could read the same content in 5 or 10 minutes.
Yeah it's hyperbole to say "always", but I can really only think of a handful examples of an adaptation actually being better than the source.
Reading will always be faster, but sound and animation can make it more enjoyable as a whole.
Were it not for some adaptations absolutely butchering good scenes from their original, the ruling would be to watch a show when you feel like watching something, and read when you don't. Reading is such a non-committal thing.
Manga doesn't have an OST or Saori Hayami's voice.
>Watching is just easier for when your hands are occupied
>Because if you look at what are the best works among both anime and manga it's always original anime and those do have endings
Yes. This is something that mangafags will always be loath to admit.
I read too fast. The pacing is limited to my internet speed.
I've already read my favorite manga so everything else is not as good.
The only manga worth reading is porn manga.
Manga has poor translations.
Interesting manga always get anime adaptions and good manga that does not get animated are from genres I dislike or is stuff that doesn't even have a translation.
Scanlators give up in manga all the time.
Holy shit stop abusing filters while cleaning you're ruining the art.
>Because if you look at what are the best works among both anime and manga it's always original anime and those do have endings
The only people that think this have not read anywhere near enough manga.
>He reads LNs instead of Japanese lit
I'll occasionally read LNs when they're the source material of works I'm fond of, but I don't seek the medium out actively otherwise. Shit writing combined with even worse translations, the medium is even more flooded with trash than anime or manga are.
LNs aren't limited to battle haremshit and isekai, only Japanese teens and retarded ESLfags can stomach those.
I like them all.
>He still pretends "real literature" is a thing and that regular novels can't be garbage, and doesn't judge each work on its individual merits
>my mfw face when errytime
fucking do it fag
knowing just one language = you're retarded
all smart people know two or even more
if your willpower is so lacking you can't learn a language then you'll just be in the shithole you call your life forever
Manga is better than anime.
You don't get cringe worthy animation and tropes,
You don't get to hear another overrated seiyuuki cunt and they all sound the same,
No need to listen to shitty pop / rock anime music,
No over dramatic voice acting,
Anime is generally terrible
I wanna rape her
Why are you're surprised about that? I think it's normal for a person to not consider learning a language that he will not use for anything other than to read his Cambodian Comics.
Faggot, there's a shit ton of apps out there on learning moon. Oh wait, you think learning a language is a meme, you're retarded.
Normal people also do not complain about subs and lack of TLs for their mongolian pictographs.
AHAHAHA, you wish. I'm mocking them since they're too busy whining about this shit when they could have used the time to learn nip and you know, actually enjoy stuff instead of being a faggot.
>Eva, Lain, Kaiba, Utena, Casshern, Angel's egg, Kyousou Giga, Princess Tutu, Haibane Renmei, FLCL, Bebop, TTGL etc.
Most of these pale in comparison to the best manga series
Most of the best mangas have never been adapted in anime, the ones that were usually got a shitty/incomplete adaptation
Japanese is more valued than English if you are job seeking, actually
I mean, who the fuck doesnt know English
Unlike the other guy, instead of mocking you, I'm going to pity you because you have such a myopic perspective of things. You have no idea how well sought after you can be among MNCs. Japanese is still a pretty damn valuable language to learn for business.
Is English not your first language? You don't seem to have gotten the hang of holding a conversation.
Normal people are also really stupid and would probably eat dog shit off the side of the road if it meant they don't have to put effort into eating food. Normal people would also ridicule you for trying to imply that learning is a good and fun thing and would rather sit in stagnation.
Not sure what point you are trying to make. Learning a language for the sake of increasing your knowledge is reason enough. Only morons and entitled idiots think they need any reason other than that to learn something new. Any other reason is merely a bonus.
This word has lost its' meaning. Same with "literally". Instead of "trying to get somebody to waste his time with useless shit", you say "meme".
Japanese is fucking useful, anon.
Maybe if you faggots would stop memeing about learning nip people wouldn't whine. Let people learn nip from their choice not because they're persuaded from an anonymous image board and they will fail within 5 minutes.
After YOU faggots would stop complaining about shitsubs and no translations first. These things don't start in a vacuum. Nobody's forcing you to learn moon, yes, you are free to learn out of your own accord. But at the same time, nobody is obliged to provide translations for you. You want to whine about it? Then expect others to do the same tot you, bitch.
Maybe you should stop being such a little bitch about the fact people are telling you to do something productive once in your time and to stop bitching about shit, you entitled fuck? Every single person who went ahead and learnt Japanese sit higher than you in every regard making your opinion mean nothing.
If someone is telling you to learn nip it is probably because you said something stupid. Like asking for translations, complaining about translations and the like.
I genuinely find it sad that even in 2016, you still have people who think they are being cool or funny by shitting on others who took the effort to learn something. I thought we're long past anti-intellectualism and yet here we are, there's people being smug about being ignorant.
And this is why you keep getting mocked. You can't even come up with proper arguments and have to resort to pointless words. Yeah, forget learning another language, you can't even handle coherent thoughts in english.
First guy here, I was pointing out his dumb usage of the word "meme". He doesn't make claims, but just calls things "memey".
Sorry if I missed the point, I'm ESL. I fully agree.
Can't you niggers stop taking the obvious bait just once?
I can't disobey the words of Kumeta-sensei.
The last full season of anything I watched was One Punch Man. I started watching the Gate anime but it feels so different from the manga that I don't really enjoy it but I'll finish it. Some anime now seem too childish for me to watch, something I never thought I'd feel. It really stood out when I tried to watch an episode of that orange autistic hamster cunt and I really didn't like it at all. Other than OPM and Gate the last one was the AoT anime and that was years ago. Whereas I'm caught up on Berserk and a good few dozen other manga series and completed some as well since then.
Manga is just easier for me to consume than anime.
Why is Kumeta so based.
Funny how you say this but when I read another thread in the future there will be some faggot coming in and shilling on his learn nip is superior crap when no one cares about it.
Fucking stop humoring the faggots
Spice and Wolf, Legend of Galactic Heroes, Jinrui and Kino's Journey are all LNs. Hyouka was first published as an LN.
I know you're stupid and don't have much else going for your, but reading The Great Gatsby doesn't make you cultured or smart, sorry.
I don't think you know what normalfag means. Sounds like you are just trying to project your stupidity here. Here, let me give you a refresher.
Nobody's forcing you to learn. The more you whine, the more you get mocked, simple as that.
Of course you can't name any.
It's just like the whole "there's manga made for everybody, even housewives read manga made for them" fib. It technically exists, but it's such a small part of all manga and has so little content that it's silly to pretend that it's anywhere near other demographics or that manga is as mainstream and accepted as a common pastime by all ages as foreigners try to portray it as.
>It's an idiot who doesn't know that Japanese love to publish books in series and that aspect alone doesn't make a novel a LN
>Actually, >>150682717 → is your thread. Go there.
>mfw normalfags can't handle 4d shitposting chess.
>make shitposting thread
>people shitpost in it
Gee, who could have foreseen this?
Sorry anon, but that isn't the case. Anyone can write shit into Japanese. Light Novels are just young adult fiction and anime style art has nothing to do with it. Overlord is a light novel.
I prefer my lewd animated, for greater detail of lewd and more possible screencaps to edit on Notepad and shitpost with. Also the fight scenes. Like holy shit, sometimes you legitimately can't tell what just fucking happened since its still images, so it fucks the immersion.
Yes, well apparently its not global because overlord is a LN, tardlord.
I see no reason to actually buy physical copies of LNs. I don't want people to see me reading fucking DxD and think I'm a weeb piece of crap. You can hide it much better when you're on your phone.
>have domestic writing system based on syllables that actually makes sense and all
>use retarded chink runes anyway
Why would nips do this?
>tfw can read and write kana and mostly understand Japanese speech, but only know about 20 kanji
I keep telling myself I'll learn one day.
>not reading with your favorite seiyuu voice
Recently I completely left the anime gutter and ascended to mangadom.
At first I only read things that didn't get the adaptation. Then I read source material instead of watching adaptations. Now I realize I can't fucking stand these poorly directed "moving" pictures. Even the action is better in manga. Fucking action.
>I prefer my lewd animated
Small market = Small budget = Shit
Shit animation, shit art, shit voice acting, shit story-line (if that's your thing), just absolute shit. Only independent animators can bring a decent amount of quality, but they aren't easy to come by (pic related).
>sometimes you legitimately can't tell what just fucking happened
Experience makes it easy.
Keep lashing out, anon. I love when stupid, unaccomplished people pretend to be cultured and smart. Come talk to me when you speak more than 2 languages and have been around the world.
Whores deserve nothing better than rape.
>The pacing is limited to my internet speed.
>The only people that think this have not read anywhere near enough manga.
Or people who've read far more manga and watched far more anime than you.
Yeah, but the best of original anime surpasses the best of original manga, even in terms of pure story and design.
>reading doujin with the characters she voices
>Only the most mainstream of the mainstream shit is translated
Not true, like at all.
It has to be REALLY obscure for no one to touch it. If it runs in a magazine or on a website, people who read raws will know about it.
There are only a handful of original anime that could compete. The sheer amount of good manga makes it the superior medium. Especially now more than ever when anime are just 12 episode commercials of manga and originals dont get made that often.
I'm an originalfag not a mangafag so I don't really care whether original anime is better or original manga is better, but rule of thumb is, an adaptation is worse than the original.
>This is wrong and you know it.
Why do mangafags get all salty over this? You've still got lots of great original manga, but it's obvious that anime is the medium that wins when it comes to this.
Nah pretty much seen everything original anime had to offer. And while some of it is really good it pales in comparison to manga. There is a reason manga enjoys so much acceptance in japan compared to anime. Even causal people know that most anime are otaku trash.
Not reading manga is a sign of low IQ
If you don't read manga you're depriving yourself of like 80% of the best works of fiction Japanese drawn media has to offer.
For every one really great anime there are at least 4 really great manga simply because the manga industry is so much bigger and can support so many more authors creating works.
Even if anime sold as well as manga, the far higher production costs would limit as many great works of fiction from being produced.
I watch anime for the atmosphere, voice acting, music, and colors.
I read manga for the dialogue, pacing, and art
I experience both for cute girls interacting with other cute girls.
I think I wouldnt be exaggertating if I said that manga after japanese novels are probably their highest form of story telling art. Japanese film peaked 50-70s before manga really hit it off. And Anime has always been too restricted and nowadays too commercialized. In manga anyone with talent will be able to publish his works somewhere if not online > see ONE with OPM and Mob Psycho.
if someone were to compile a list of five star anime and 5 star manga, the manga lost would be much longer.
There are lots of manga as good or better than the anime you've listed
