For me, it depends on the series

Like for Love Hina manga- great design on scenes and characters, original story, and more time on character development. Love Hina anime- crappy design, doesn't follow some elements from the manga & crappy design!!!!!

So it really all depends on the series..

Yup, the anime version is better for fight scenes, and I guess that's goes the same for sports anime...like for prince of tennis, it's more thrilling to watch those amazing serves or special moves than read them in manga.

Though, there some titles that are better off in manga...like xxxHolic, Pet Shop of Horrors, Fruits Basket, Genshiken...I think these titles are more on story rather than action so they come up better in manga.

I think it can go both ways. For the most part I like mangas better since they seem to be more detailed than the anime. They also continue on when an anime concludes like Gravitation or Fruits Basket. Although I like watching animes ^^

The manga is always better since the story can get more in depth as well as character development. In most anime series, they go to like 13 episodes and I feel that some stuff is left since it is so short.

Anime is better than manga in terms of action. I mean you get soundtrack,gushing blood, awesome fights, cute fluffy scenes, etc. instead of drawings and bubbles.

I think all manga is better than the anime afterall, if theres no mangas ( regardless of how bad it is ) there would not be any anime ( regardless of how good it is )

the manga is great if you want to feel all smart. but the animes just fun to see your favorite charactor actually MOVE!!! i got into anime first so i like it for the whole "going back to your childhood" think but i like the manga when i want to feel older... not to say the animes for young people. its been an upward battle to get my family to see that animes for 16 year olds too.

I like the manga since it kinda helps develop your imagination. You can imagine what the perfect voices would be and this can not lead to any disappointments of how the character's voice sounds.

It`s just the way you gotta look at it.
Manga could be better because it gives you tons and tons of information about the characters, past, history, etc. While the anime sometimes skips over a few things that you`ve missed that was in the manga.

As well, anime could be better too in a way, because it gives you a viewing experience from what you`ve read in the manga.
And it`s very colorful, only if you can find a lot of manga that has color in the pages, which here in Maine, there really hardly is any.

So yeah, I say that both could be the best, I guess.
