I've only read and seen the Chobits Manga and Anime, but prefer the manga over the Anime. But sometimes,
the anime is better because of the music that's added and the actual flow of the story. It all really depends on
the viewer and their preferences. i.e: Cowboy Bebop's Anime, in my opinion, is way better than the manga, but
has no flow---

Or maybe it's because Spike's just cool like that.

Well if their really good artist in animemation like for instance the movie Metropolis or the show Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone complex, you still get the quality of what ya see in the manga. Story wise may be different defintely when it comes to the manga and the animemation. Great examples include: FLCL ( I was confused by the anime, the manga confused me even more), Knight of the Zodiac, Azimango Diaoh, and many others. I agree with those who said sometimes the anime gives more story wise than the anime does, but if ya like the genuine art of the manga it usually makes up for it. Sometime it's also vice versa some animes completely mess up the orginal manga due to editing, and etc...
So it all depends in the end if ya just watch the anime and read the manga and make a conclusion for yourself.

I think that manga is much better, becuase if the manga is made first, then a lot of things are changed. It is always much better in the manga, just like how a book is always better than a movie.

In Fruits Basket, for example, a lot of things were left out when they made the anime, and so a lot of funny parts were left out. Also, Shigure was changed, and made more rude than funny.

The drawings in the Fruits Basket manga seem to be better. In they manga, they made Kyo deformed and made Shigure just plain ugly. The anime seemed to completely ruin Shigure overall.

I find reading the Manga and watching the Anime togeather makes you understand the whole story.

I have been reading Ai Yori Aoshi, and enjoying the Anime, and I tell you, you get more out of both.


So in my opion, go with both...

This actually depends, if the manga in question is a direct adaptation of the anime, then the anime would be better. on the otherhand, Some manga go into greater depth and are more enjoyable. The Flame of Recca anime for example, was a good anime, but there was no conclusion, while the manga (so i've heard) goes on longer and ends the series. Love Hina's anime ends at vol. 12 of the manga, and i felt it was a chore to watch. the manga on the otherhand was rather enjoyable.

Yeah the diffrences are apperent but I myself would prefer manga, it just gets more into detail I mean you have anime well take love hina for example. The anime itself is comedic and short. The manga is discriptive and lenghty.

I like manga better because it goes into more depth and things with the story, but anime is always fun to watch after reading the manga ^ ^
