ITT: Times where the anime was better than the manga
Hold your horses
Anime was trash though. Every single arc was done better in the manga. It's not even close.
This is not fucking true at all. Yes it has amazing animation, but the jokes don't land for shit. All this time I never understood why people said it was hilarious.. then I read the manga and got it immediately. Fuck outta hea'
Even if TOEI made some filler episodes, the ending was better handled in the anime.
>better than anything
I'll tell you what, Naruto is better than 2011. (and better than the original but that's a discussion for another thread)
David Production did a really good job. They even fixed some continuity errors that were in the manga such as Jonathan's star tattoo not being present.
1 & 2 were really good, 3 you can really go either way, but I'd definitely read Part 4 over watching the adaptation. Part 4's anime really lacked in quality when it should have probably been the part that had the best treatment.
The anime looked like trash, the manga was actually impactful and visceral. 2011 is probably one of the most soulless adaptations for any shounen, right next to FMA Brotherhood.
