I've been curious about this for a while. I mean I started out as a total anime lover. I didn't even know dramas existed a year and a half ago. After all, I came to this site looking for episodes of Naruto. But after I watched by first drama, Gokusen, I fell in love with the drama world. Now I wonder: which is better? Anime and Manga or Drama?

My answer is dramas. Obviously I'm including all dramas here, no matter if they're Japanese or not. I think they're better for two reasons:

1) They bring to life most anime/manga that I'm already familiar with to make me like the storylines even more than I did before.

2) I like the real people interaction on the shows.

Sure, there's a lot of cool stuff in anime that you can't do in dramas, but at least in dramas it's real people and not animated people. Let's face it, it's probably a lot more healthy to like dramas anyway. At least there is a small (we're talking microscopic here) chance that you could meet some actor/actress you idolize one day. With anime guys/girls, all you can do is talk about it. Or write fanfiction.

But that's just me. What does everyone else think?

I like drama most because I can drool on the actors. and somehow, I can relate drama more to myself rather than anime.

Reading manga is too confusing for me. Maybe because I rarely touched it. I'm confused of which box to read next. Is it going down, going left, going right, or what?

So I'd rather stick to dramas.

Okay two things don't compare Anime to Reality Dramas.... Plus No more vs threads. If you say this isn't a vs thread....think of what your asking since your comparing both these.

I used to love anime and anime only. But after discovering dramas I must say I've been converted. Korean, Japanese and Taiwanese dramas are so addicting, with actual people it seems more real, it's more romantic and more expressed (I can cry in drama but never during anime) And if it weren't for drama I wouldn't have discovered a lot of asian music and celebrities that I am now obsessed with.

Also there is some good eyecandy. Honestly it's healthier to fall for a real life hottie than an anime character. Haha!

manga for me definitely, sometimes anime's cut out reli interesting parts and dramas cut out even more, they might even twist the storyline a bit so its not as good (for example death note, the manga is probably the best i've ever read but the drama sucked, anime wasnt that good either, although its probably cuz i alredi read the manga so everything seems less in contrast)
