Mango, every time. I could binge a whole series in a day or two regardless of length, or slow read with shit in the background. While to watch anime it would take 22-24 minutes per like 2 chapters of a manga plus you have to pay attention to it constantly.

I like both. Though I think that at it's peak the medium of anime is superior to the medium of manga, however in practice manga is generally superior to the anime that does get broadcast. All in all it's pretty even.

The only thing that prevents me from reading more manga to be honest. Plus there's the fact that there are a ton of more obscure manga that just don't have translations where as almost anything big enough to get an anime gets subbed.

As far as completed series go though I like both.
>>
Anime

Comic books are a shitty medium for storytelling.
>>
I prefer manga.

The tl;dr reason why is a)there's more of it to choose from and b)it's under less commercial pressure and can be made and distributed or published even by a single faggot in his shitty one room abode so there's nearly limitless possibilities to make manga that wouldn't ever be made into anime.

Manga. I can read at my on pace and there isn't new stuff every week, so I don't need to read every single day, or spend a whole day reading stuff to catch up.
>>
>>152098779
Anime when it's done well, which is rarely. Color palette + sound + motion can enhance scenes by so much when it's done right.

Manga works well with certain drawing styles, allows more detail/frame than anime allows due to time constraints and the black/white tones can be good for dramatic series like Prison School.

But at the end of the day, source is predominantly better so VNs or LNs is the true answer.

As some other anons have said anime originals are great, but usually adaptions are shit compared to the manga. Sometimes adaptions are as good as the source, but it's rare; see Mushishi and that's only because it's an exact copy of the manga.

As a medium I can't really choose between them but more often that not the content of manga is much better than anime.

Anime, but only when it's done really, really well. Which unfortunately, is rare. As such, Manga is generally the "medium" I spend more time on. For instance, I fucking love the OPM web comic and the Murata OPM Manga. But I prefer the Anime. But that's one of the very rare instances.

I like to dump short manga sometimes. Oneshots or else stuff that barely fills a tank; those stupidly cute loveshit threads were always nice.

As for a manga board I think I'm more open to the idea than I used to be. It would the burying of /a/ for me though, it would really be a completely different place after that. Nothing in the near decade I've been here would have changed it more, I think, than if manga threads suddenly weren't allowed because there was a separate board for it. But the board isn't what it was, it's not a funny community like it used to be party because the userbase has changed and partly because it's gotten too fast and partly because the internet and fansubbing and scanlation have all changed drastically. I don't feel like I participate in the board as a whole anymore, I just lurk until I see a thread I like (usually small, slow and about manga; though sometimes I go into anime threads) and then post a little. If there was a manga board it would feel like a bit of a retirement home, I would be happy there if it was much slower and went un-noticed by the majority of anons; I wouldn't necessarily want it to be anything like /a/ is now but neither would it need to try and be like /a/ used to be I would just want it to be about plain old discussion.

I usually find manhua to be much better than manwha. Dunno why but it seems more like manga than the latter.

>>152104271
Depends on how much you choose to follow I guess. I follow quite a lot so I get annoyed when there isn't at least one release of something I'm reading each day. I actually have a faily healthy though constantly changing backlog of manga that I'm following, I just don't have time to read all the releases to catch up because I can only get through a few chapters per day. If you accept that you'll catch up at your own pace and don't worry about it it's a nice and relaxed way to do things I find.
>>
>>152104271
>I can read at my on pace

This is a big deal for me too. I'm much more willing to read a mediocre manga than watch a mediocre anime, because with manga I can breeze through the shitty parts.
>>
I like both, though lately I've been reading a lot more manga than watching any shows. Each medium has its merits, I can't completely disregard anime cause I value music, atmosphere and voice acting too much.

While on the subject, should I read or watch Monster? Watched and read the first chapter and I dont know which one I prefer more. The sound quality in the anime feels... old? Not sure how to describe it.

>>
>>152112456
What?
>>

>>152098814
LN are the cancer of Japanese media and the worst thing to happen to this board. I still pray every night that one day we'll ban all discussion of Light Novels.
>>
>>152113652
Taiyou no Ie was actually pretty high tier for shoujo romance, there weren't that many of the cliches people usually derided shoujo romance for and it never went melodramatic as far as I remember. I recall thinking it was just a cute and straightforward romance manga that might have gotten dragged out a little longer than needed regarding them confessing to eachother.

>>152113897
LN adatptions have been another nail in the coffin for anime if you ask me. I don't pay that much attention but it seems to me that good quality anime originals are less common than they used to be and that the shittiest LN promotion anime are more getting more numerous.
>>
>>152114069
I'm on chapter 25 right now so I don't exactly know what I'm talking about but the whole brother love triangle worries me a bit. The fact that they haven't confessed to eachother but the sexual tension is ever present reminds me of Dengeki Daisy which was kinda shit but I guess I'll have to finish it to have a legitimate opinion.

My favorite thing (But it's very rare if you don't count space mecha) is homages from western litterature. Because you know it won't be as good, but it will be a fucking fun ride.

Not because English anime is better (its not) but just because its easier for me to have on as background noise. If its something I want to seriously watch i'll of course go with a solid sub group

I'd read more manga but I'm not the type to pick up something out of nowhere and the only place I frequent that talks about anime is here. And we don't really talk about manga. Also I can't deal with scanlation slowness when there's always something else to occupy my time. Anime is definitely worse in quality but I hear more about it so I spend more time on it.
>>
>>152120610
>I put way too much value on music and atmosphere to completely disregard anime
this. that's one of the things i appreciate about anime compared to manga.

i'd probably enjoy it more if the anime industry was more movie-format oriented. cheap shows really don't keep my interest most of the time.

What anime was this? I know it's a parody.

>>152120610
I'm about the only person on /a/ that seems to think 99% of anime music is utter horseshit. Some of it is inoffensive if you just kind of don't take any notice of it, but when you do you can't help think how bad it is. Then there's quite a lot that is noticeably bad.

There are a few exceptions I can think of but the majority I think is really poor.

>Once you get used to the volume of posts on /a/ there's no escape
God no, this speed is terrible now. I should be half this pace or less. Threads 404 in 2 hours, that's ridiculous.

I find it incredibly hard to keep up with busy threads and have done for probably a couple of years now.
>>
>>152122971
Not the same thing.
>>
>>152122971
Technically it always was, it's just that it used to spammed and saged off the board if anyone dared to post it. And back then I suspect there were far, far smaller percentage of anons actually reading that shit. Although I guess mods used to pay heed to board culture and would also delete those threads, on the off chance there was actually an active mod around.

How can anime compete?
>>
>>152098779

Anything original.
Anime adaptations are usually shit. Low budget, shit animation, no heart.

Reading shitly-translated LNs is by far the most weeboo thing you can do. I mean seriously.
>>
ANime becuase it can do anything manga can and more.
>>
>>152098779
manga. speaking of adaptations the pacing of anime is always atrocious when compared to the source material. with some shounen it's especially bad, I can read an entire volume in the time I need to watch the anime equivalent of a single chapter.
>>
>>152099675
its not the lack of pictures my dude its the content. if they were written decently they would've been novels not light novels
>>
Manga now that I have a job. But anime was great just as something to put on and watch for the whole day.
LNs are okay. Can't find any good ones though.

I feel like compared to manga, most manhua fall on the extreme end of the scales, they either look like shit or extremely beautiful. But the writing is always, always shit fucking gooks can't write fro shit.

Anime usually.

Sometimes I find manga I like but I've never really known where to search for good manga.
>>
>>152142807
If you take pure numbers, there's far more good manga than even mediocre anime. It's not really any surprise why some people would just be dealing more with manga.

# of bad manga > # of good manga >>> # of mediocre and below anime > # of good anime

>>152143282
On /a/? On charts?
>>
>>152143333
Honestly, I haven't really been on /a/ much recently the last year or two. Mostly on /co/ and then school and work take up the rest of my time.

Though I have a tablet now which gives me more of a chance to read manga because I don't like reading from monitors either. This was like the highest reason to. It bothers me to read from monitors.

Tablet makes it a lot easier.


I've been slowly reading stuff
>>
Manga, but a fucking mile.
Not to mention that coming across actually GOOD manga is much easier than finding watchable anime.
>>
>>152141625
Manga.
I read through naruto in a week and enjoyed it. Watching all the episodes would've taken forever and I'd have hated it.
>>
>>152113897
spice and wolf though

>>152099912
just join a OPT thread or make your own.
>>
I normally binge manga
sometimes LNs
occasionally WNs

For me to watch anime I have to be in the mood to watch something, and to find something that fits at that moment is troublesome.

>>152099912
Manga doesn't have "seasons" or anything that would draw particular attention to a set of manga. When a manga that is trending comes along, you do get threads of it, such as Hinamatsuri and Kaguya. In general though, the manga scene is too diverse for there to be enough attention for an /a/non to shitpost about a manga that he just finished reading.

I'm an idiot, forgot my end spoiler tag

Why not both?

I want to say manga but I can never keep up with current series. A month is too long in between chapters and weekly stuff tends to be so short that I breeze through a chapter in 5 minutes. Not to mention all the breaks that they tend to go on. It's just a pain to keep up with.
But if you presented me with a completed anime vs a completed manga I'd probably pick the manga.
>>
>>152147944
>Pretentious faggot can't enjoy both mediums
Yes, moving colors and sounds can add to the story telling experience. Greentexting like an idiot doesn't magically invalidate that.
>>
>>152098779
Animu. For the most part I do not enjoy reading pictures and would much rather read words, though I am able to enjoy Yotsuba and a few others.
>>
>>152147269
>too diverse for there to be enough attention for an /a/non to shitpost about a manga that he just finished reading
Not true, especially given how small the scanlation community is in comparison.

>>
>>152148350
>Yes, moving colors and sounds can add to the story telling experience.

Only very occasionally, the vast majority of anime which aren't OVAs are trash made on a cheap as shit budget, so animating doesn't add anything worthwhile to it. I will sometimes put up with it if the show has excellent VAs or a really good OST but I personally don't find that happening often enough to watch that much anime anymore.
>>
>>152150793
If you can't appreciate good scene composition the same way you can appreciate good paneling in manga, then that lies on you, not the anime. Not everything that airs has the same visual quality as Nichijou, but they certainly all aren't eye cancer like Hand Shakers either. I won't even get into how much a decent seiyuu can improve joke deliver over text only.

>>
>>152153701
At least half of the stuff that airs either has good art, animation, soundtrack or seiyuu. It's no different than the number of manga with good art and paneling.
>>
>>152098779
I prefer manga for good series and anime for mediocre ones or pretentious shit like Utena or Penguindrum
>>
>>152098852
Same
>>
>>152151790
Sure. All 3 (regarding Ito - those few I actually got) were bigger format, nice paper and all.
Special edition for Blame! as well (and available in HC nad SC).

Oh and the translations are good too, I think. Shows lotsa dedication especially for Nihei's stuff with mini-encyclopaedias at the end of each book.
Cheers.

this.
overall manga is superior, but really good anime does beat manga of the same level. just barely.

Cartoons would die in a board mixed with anime.
Comics and manga would probably be even but it would go pretty fast I'd imagine.

/co/ seems okay because cartoon and comics are pretty even, /a/ is too lopsided towards anime and select few manga.
