Which one do you prefer to do first and why? Read the manga vs Watching the Anime

Some people prefer reading an original manga first before watching the anime. Some people prefer watching the anime first so that they can have a reason to read the manga to begin with. Which one are you? Or do you have no preference at all?...LOL. If you have other reasons, feel free to express yourself here!

i prefer reading the manga first, because it's the original idea, usually is better than the anime (there are exceptions, like Sakura Card Captors...) and it's more complete (many things are suppressed in the anime version, including endings ¬¬). But I have watched anime versions before reading the anime and liked it, like Bleach and Shaman king....

Hmm... I'd have to say I like both! =D

I like to read the manga though when the anime stops or when the anime is behind, so I can read ahead to see what happens, if I am impatient. I also like the manga though because sometimes the order is a bit different than in the anime, and the anime skips parts of it.

I like the anime though, when I am to lazy to even both to read manga and because, this is sometimes how I find good manga to read. (Like, a second series. Ie. Kamichama Karin Chu is the second series of Kamichama Karin, but isn't an anime YET.)

I also like the manga, because there are many manga's that deserve to be put into an anime form. (Lots of the Shoujo manga I read deserves to become an anime!)

So, yeah. Both are the best =D

I think it depends. I like the Claymore manga way more than I like the Claymore anime-which is also great, but I loved the Fruits Basket anime and hate the manga.

Because I tend to be lazy and want to watch things first before considering the manga, I would probably have to choose watching the anime first. There are times when I follow a manga first before watching an anime, but due to time constraints and a hefty school schedule, I haven't had enough time to do what I love most..reading the mangas! With that said, I am stuck to say that I watch the anime first before considering a manga first.

I prefer to read the manga first. It usually explains things that the anime leaves out which I think sucks. But I don't mind watching the anime first either. It's a lot easier for me to watch anime than to read manga. But I would rather to read the manga.

I only read the Bleach manga so i read that first before watching the anime
