    Default Do you prefer Anime or Manga?

    Okay, so what I want to know is do you guys prefer anime or manga?
    I don't really have a preference but I usually read manga because it has a lot that the anime doesn't and is ahead. If. You prefer anime, Dubbed or Subbed?

    Anime over manga whenever possible. Why waste time reading a book when you can be WATCHING TV?

    Honestly, I prefer manga over Anime for a few reasons.
    - Firstly, there is a consistency with quality, unlike anime where budget issues can affect animation quality. Yu Yu Hakusho is an example of this.
    - Secondly, there isn't a need to cut content so it can fit into a broadcasting time slot.
    - Lastly, I don't have to worry about crappy dubbing if I'm watching in English, or reading subtitles with a moving picture (I've never been very patient or good with it) if I'm watching in Japanese.
    I know violence isn't the answer. I got it wrong on purpose.

    Anime all the way. I dont mind manga, but one of the most amazing things ( to me, anyways ) about anime is the music. For that reason alone, I love anime more than manga. Music draws you in to a story, in a way that pictures cant. It gives the entire story so much more feeling, emotion. Im a guy, 27 years old. I work for a masonry company, I drink beer, i shoot guns.... and I could name at least 10 tracks from animes that had me fighting back tears before I even watched the whole series. Sorry, you cant get that from paper. At least I can't. Thats why anime wins for me.

    Oh! and subbed. Dub is awful, unless I really need a laugh. I speak and write japanese so its really funny to watch a dubbed anime. Japanese isnt the best lang out there for direct English translation.

    Definitely anime, for sure. Id rather watch than read, and it lets me become more involved with the particular show a lot easier.

    And definitely subbed, not dubbed. Some of the English dubs are absolutely horrendous D:

    I prefer Anime cos I like to see the movement and hear the characters voices. When I read I prefer novels, or non-fiction.

    I personally prefer Anime but Manga has its merits too. Unlike manga, anime has more of an emotional response from me. Why? because the characters are alive, if you while, plus the music in the series helps make more better. Anime, subbed or dubbed? It really depends on the voice actors for that particular series. Though I like hearing it in subbed but I don't mind dubbed, that's if they get the right voice actors. Though, I do like manga because its have more content than the anime. However, there isn't much of an emotional response because they aren't moving. It's too static for me.

    Default Re: Do you prefer Anime or Manga?

    Manga, always.
    • It's a more bare-bones art form, and the detail of artwork in anime can't even compare. Try as it may, the anime of Mushshi could never capture the light, airy illustrations of the manga. A Blame! anime couldn't hope to capture the contrast and detail of the manga, a Pastel anime couldn't get the pastel/watercolor styling of the manga.
    • It's what the author intended. Anime gets censored to meet broadcast standards, it adds fanservice to draw the late-night crowd and general otaku, it gets moe-fied to draw in otaku, filler is added to maintain scheduling, character designs are changed to make them more suitable for animation, sometimes even art styles are changed. One of my biggest pet peeves in changing of colors, particularly black. A lot of anime studios avoid using black for clothing, hair, eye, or background coloring - even if it was part of a character design or scene. Instead it gets changed to dark blue or purple. This happened most recently with Tasogare x Otome Amnesia.
    • Voices not fitting characters. As you read manga, you develop a voice and a tone for characters in your head that is created from their character traits, the way they look, and context clues. Anime gives characters a solid, specific voice and tone that may not fit the perceived voice from the manga, or even fit the character itself. This has been why I don't like watching the Nazo no Kanojo X anime, despite the fact that it's been one of my favorite manga since it first began serialization.
    • Pacing becomes a big thing. In manga, the author has control of time. A single panel could contain half-a-second, 10 seconds, or a few minutes or hours. Anime is bound to real time. They can compensate for panels with a lot of content in a short time with slow-motion effects, but there's no way to accurately convey a 10-minute-time-span panel into anime. What they'll do is a show a few second of material, and then go into a montage of the sun going down or shadows growing or cars going by, and hop back to what was happening before in about 10 seconds.
    • Scheduling. Anime are generally produced with an amount of episodes decided before the series starts, with a few exceptions. This means if a manga has ended, in most cases they'll try to pack it into a standard length series - ~12 episodes, ~25 episodes, ~50 episodes. To do so they will cut content from the series, drag things out, or add filler content to make it fit into the anime's schedule. If a manga is still on-going when an anime is produced for it, the anime producers will either have a cut-off ending, or make up something to substitute for the end. Most recently, this was Zetman's problem. I looooove the Zetman manga, but the pacing in the anime was terrible. They're trying to cram at least a volume's worth of content into a single anime episode - a typical anime episode is equivelent to about 30-40 pages of manga, a volume is about 200 pages.
    • Budgeting. Anime is very, very sensitive to budgeting. Bigger studios or bigger projects can afford more animators and produce higher quality animation...but not all studios are Sunrise or GAINAX, and this means that either the anime as a whole is low/mediocre quality, or the budget is saved to make the more critical scenes high quality and the rest of the scenes are low quality. Look at the animation of Naruto Shippuden, One Piece during the Skypiea arc, or the original Shakugan no Shana series for examples. Naruto is a pretty good example - the quality of the animation during most scenes is sub-par, while the far-and-few-between fight scenes seem to receive most of the budgeting.
    • Waiting and selection. Even the most popular manga series don't get anime until more than a year after they begin serialization. Some series take much, much longer than that. The vast majority of manga series never get animated. The anime pool is small, and the manga pool is incredibly large.

    It's no less "fake" than the Japanese dub; it's just a different language.

    The English dubs of Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell (including both series, and all three movies), FLCL, Evangelion, Casshern SINS, Naruto (after the second season), Full Metal Panic, Fullmetal Alchemist, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Deathnote, Kikaider, Yu Yu Hakusho, or any Studio Ghibli movie is as good as or better than their Japanese dubs.

    In an ideal world I'd both read manga and watch anime, as both mediums have their unique qualities - but sadly, since I mostly can't find the time to do both, I go for anime.

    Sorry might have said that out wrong but since im already a bit used to Japanse dubs
    i dislike watching it in English (Although i begun with English).

    And aint it a opinion that the English dubs from all the series above are as good or even better than the Japanese ones?

    Sorry if after that you still think im completely wrong.

    Anime Dubbed. This is 'Merica, in 'Merica we read books normal like n'stuff. And we speak 'Merican!
    in other words, idk why, but the whole reading books backwards thing with Manga really annoys me. And i don't watch TV to read, therefore i want Animes to be dubbed.

    Manga generally.

    The story is usually better thought our and more consistant.

    It's generally the original story line only therefore there are no fillers, filler characters or random plot holes.

    The character development is usually more profound.

    No change in the art style so to speak.

    It usually has a much better and more rounded ending to it then anime.

    *Ususally* it doesn't stop right in the middle of a series.

    And...you don't havr to worry about which VA does it better, Japanese or English, because it doesn't matter.

    Some English dubs like The Melancholy of Haurhi Suzumiya are great as they actually put a good dub for Americans. I read the novels of Haruhi Suzumiya, and the way it was worded just wasn't as great or as funny as its English-dub anime counterpart.

    Anime. Dubbed.
    First off, animation has been a huge interest of mine since I was little. Second, voice acting is also something I love, even when it's bad it draws me into the story so much much than not having it there at all.
    I just can't connect with manga. I read it every now and then but it's not nearly as enjoyable.
    (I'm such a hypocrite though, because I vastly prefer books to movies xD)

    I Prefer Manga over Anime.
    Because you can basically make the character sound like whatever you want.
    And Its ahead the Anime it self.

    I prefer to watch anime because I need color in my life and it is mindless entertainment where I can sit and relax with a big bowl of candy. Candy is like my version of popcorn ^^;

    What I will do sometimes with dubbed animes is just close my eyes and let it play. It's a way to relax but it's still like watching the anime bcuz all you really need is audio to know what's going on and if I have already seen the anime then I can just visualize that for myself. For me, listening to movies or anime that I have already watched is almost the same as just watching it all together.

    Manga, its easier access and mostly has a longer but better and refined story.
    Animes, kinda changes. But sometimes I do like seeing the actions in Anime and of course the awesome voices and songs of our seiyuus <3

    Default Re: Do you prefer Anime or Manga?

    I think my preference falls back on which series it is. I normally prefer watching anime over reading manga because I have a really short attention span. The voices and the soundtrack isn't something that you get in anime or manga and those things play a bit part in the series. This boils down to the reason why I enjoyed the anime for Death Note better than the manga - because of the fantastic sound track and voice acting.

    I find that the majority of the time, I enjoy the manga with series like Black Butler and Fullmetal Alchemist. This is usually because the anime quickly catches up with a manga that hasn't been finished and goes off of the rail. Both anime significantly falterred after the episodes started to take their own path and not stick to the manga. This is why FMA:B was so much better that the original and the Soul Eater anime more than the manga.

    It depends on how good the story is in the anime or manga. Sometimes one isn't as good as the other.

    Default Re: Do you prefer Anime or Manga?

    I myself like a little of both, but i can understand the appeal of anime over manga. I love seeing how the characters are brought to life in an anime. sometimes you just don't get the same feeling from reading the manga as you do watching the anime. Besides i find watching the animes really relaxing and they are just so awesomely cute to look at sometimes.

    I like reading and watching both so that i can compare them. especially when i discover that the anime is so totally opposite from the manga. I mean that is not a bad thing, But sometimes it's not great either.

    as for subbed and dubbed.. well a lot of anime i started watching was on television so i guess that would be dubbed and i got used to it. but then after a while i started watching more of them online like bleach and naruto and gundam and other random ones and i got so used to read the subs that when i would go to watching them on television now they sounded kinda funny to me. But I guess since i go back and forth between them, i am kinda used to both.. but honestly i think the subtitles ones are much better.
