Does Manga ruin the Anime for you?

Honestly to me, I don't need to read the manga to know if an anime is on filler, I can usually just tell its filler by watching it, to me I can tell because the filler usually just seems to have a bad plot or the writing seems bad or the quality is just overall worse then usual.

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.



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.


Really? Thanks for the info.

And we got the 4th movie coming out too. >_<

If the manga is just right ahead of the anime, then yes it does. Its fine as long as when i watch the anime, the picture of the manga isnt completely imprinted on my brain.

quite the opposite, anime ruins the manga for me. all the discrepancies, all the fillers. it's a real buzz kill when you come in hoping to see what you read animated, and a lot is missing, or important details are changed, for example:

amongst many, many other examples of screw ups. the difference for me being, it feels like making the manga in the first place is pointless if you don't animate all of it, or the integrity has been lost because of greed for more money when they add fillers to keep the show going while the manga progresses. I feel if they took time off to let the manga progress and aired new shows in the gaps, we would have more, and higher quality anime in the long run. BUT, with the anime industry the way it is, it's all about profit, why chance new titles when they can keep turning a profit by beating the horse until it is dead, and then some.

it has gotten to where I only watch "mainstream" anime like naruto, bleach, and one peace to name a few for the animated fight scenes. until those episodes come out, I just watch the other seasonal shows and keep reading my manga.

I dont read manga, but I rarely see anyone that does read manga and watch the anime say that the anime was better. If the manga is what originally engages people in the story they come to like, then its only natural not to appreciate the deviations and differences between the two. Many animes are based off the manga, which come first, so the manga will naturally be percieved as the better of the two. Manga and comics have never been my choice content for reading material, so I tend to like just about anything that I watch.

Not really, because its nice to see the pages come alive in a animated point of view.

No, but I like when the anime producers work with the Mangaka to add a twist to the story or something extra.

I just look at them seperately. I read the manga for content, but I watch the anime to see it animated and to clear up things that are harder to see in just white, black, and gray. Some shows are animated vastly better then they are drawn (Hunter X Hunter is a prime example).

And for the most part, I like them equally. When I see something I like in the manga, I get excited to see it in the anime, but I don't look at an anime that bases itself off of a manga as content (animes that are original are a different case).

Not at all! I actually generally prefer anime to manga, myself. I enjoy seeing the different ideas and twists tied on to most animated adaptions, especially when they make good use of their medium. I love adaptions as a whole, really.

Depends on the theme.

I read the Deathnote manga and enjoyed it immensely.
I don't intend on watching the anime, since there's really no point.
The series isn't at all about fancy graphics but rather just an illustrated detective novel with supernatural elements.

Things like Hellsing or Sword Art Online, however, I enjoy as anime, and don't think I'll bother with the manga.

And then there are the "on the fence" cases, like Shaman King.
Clearly, the anime dumbed down the story in Shaman King, so I think I might read the manga at some point to get the whole story the way it was originally told.
But on the other hand, the music in the anime was amazing. My favorite anime soundtrack to date. So there's that.
