So, tell me. For those of you that enjoy Uraboku (boy or girl), do you prefer the anime version or the manga version? And for what reason(s) do you prefer one over the other?

If you're undecided, that's okay, too. i say this because i'm undecided myself. lol! i think the characters look better in the anime (except Luka, cuz to me he looks better in the manga ), and i think the story in the manga is more in-depth (even for just 7 volumes ).

Tell me what you guys think. :D

The animation is done well in both, but my vote would go to the manga. The anime just doesn't explain enough, and the characters are still being introduced 2 episodes from the ending of the show! They either should have waited until there was more material to base the anime on or have not based it on the manga. There is too much information to cram into 13 episodes and it will end with a lot of unanswered questions (example. we barely even know what the Giou Clan is and why they exist, why they reincarnate, Luka and Yuki's past, what exactly the Zweidlt are, the backgrounds of the different types of demons, etc.). Watching the episodes so far feels more like watching the first arc of an anime, not the entire thing. This is definitely a series that needs two seasons worth of episodes (24 - 26) to explain everything, not just one (12 - 13).

The manga--definitely.
As soon as I heard it was going to have a 12~13 episode anime series, I dreaded it.
There's too much going on to cram into so little episodes, not to mention animators usually take a few liberties and change some things around, like in the manga for example, you know how the BL-tag is pretty subtle (at least, for now), I didn't want to have that be changed (I'm not a big fan of BL, like, at all. I had a big bad feeling...>.>...) but so far, it hasn't been bad (Just so you know, I've only watched up to like episode 8 so far...I've been obsessed with Durarara!! so I haven't watched anymore Uragiri wa boku no namae wo Shitteiru episodes. If the subtleness happens to change, I'm going to be quite pissed.)
Not to mention the art (IMHO) is a lot better in the manga than in the anime (they're faces are so long and angluar. It's...odd...to say the least.)

I have only read the manga til chapter 3 or 4 I think but I'm updated with the anime. The story in anime is kinda slow. It'll will end soon but I feel like it's just an introduction. One of the things I hate in a series is cliffhangers! Because it means I have to continue learning about the it through manga which I don't really have much time unless it's yaoi. I am more on watching than reading unless I like the title and it doesn't have an anime.

But the anime of Uraboku has nice character design and I can hear the seiyuu.

I just started reading the manga and I love it. There's so much more detail. I can't find anywhere that hosts more than the first couple of volumes though. Does anyone know a good site. The anime isn't bad. I love listening to Luka, but it's missing enough that things don't always make sense.

Watched up to episode 9, then dropped.

Dynamic-gothic-shojo-shonen-ai series aren't just my cup of tea...

Btw Uraboku is running for 24 episodes.
