Shouldn't it be "Does Anime ruin the manga for you?"

I think the Naruto anime ruined most of fights from the manga. I think fillers ruined the anime.


But I think there's some good things the Naruto Anime has done that's pretty well done, mostly the emotional scenes. Fights however, are pretty slow.

More obvious answer is it depends on what it is. I enjoy both for different reasons. I am picking up the Naruto manga now after being completely caught up with the anime. It's just as enjoyable and better than watching the show twice through while waiting for more episodes. Granted I am reading other manga and watching other anime as well.

Both are great.

This.

Although I would always rather watch an anime than read a manga.

There are some anime that totally rip their manga to shreds, though.

An awesome example of this would be Cardcaptor Sakura. The manga had Sakura capturing and changing a "full" deck of 13 cards over the span of 50 chapters; but the anime, on the other hand, had Sakura capturing and changing an actual full deck of 52 cards over the span of 70 episodes--and two movies.

However when it comes to most manga/anime, the manga's story goes so much farther and deeper than the anime's does. Off the top of my head, Negima, Lucky Star and Mysterious Girlfriend X are three that make the anime pale in comparison to the manga.

the manga usually doesn't ruin the anime for me

Love both! The manga never runs the anime if I read it first but I can read it after the show too.

It was good enough to make me lol, I didn't hate it though but I thought the animation was inconsistent during the entire Naruto vs. Pein fight.

Manga makes sense of the anime because the anime is just a shortened and animated version of the manga.

More people said that 'Revolutionary Girl Utena' made more sense after reading the manga. Where as the anime left them confused.

Depends on the manga and the anime.

There are tons of manga that are better then their adaptions, and there are tons of manga that are worse than their adaptions.
Anime sometimes delivers better than manga does, but that's just what I personally think.
But that doesn't matter if the anime is bad, as for fillers, you can just skip them.
So I can't just say that I prefer all manga above their adaptions, some are better, some are worse.
Of course it's gonna take a while for the anime to catch up, it's made AFTER the manga. :3

Or in the case of some shows the anime is made before the manga... Neon Genesis Evangelion comes to mind. The way I see is to think of each as their own story. Regardless of which media it was adapted from or to (light novel, novel, anime, manga, art-book, movie, music, etc.); I'll use Evangelion as an example. In the anime, the character of Kaworu Nagisa is more self-sacrificing and understanding of others than the Kaworu Nagisa from the manga, who is a sadistic that plays on the feelings of others and doesn't care for self-sacrifice, only the answers to his own questions. This makes the story develop in different ways so I view them as different stories of the same thing. So, no, the manga doesn't ruin the anime for me or vice versa.

Nope, for most series I only watch the anime. Some I may read the manga if the anime ends abruptly or has one movie/episode to cover a whole manga series.

Totally forgot to mention that. >_<

And I'm still wondering about the Evangelino manga ending. >_>

It's in its last volume as we speak, so not a long wait.
