Manga vs. Anime: Which floats your boat… with god speed?

This is what I call a beautiful dilemma, just like picking out what to eat at your favorite restaurant. I sit and ponder which really rocks my world? Off course~ each title is different, certain moments work out better on the screen than on paper, the plot in the anime changes, the drawings are different, and so on… The list factors to consider always seems to place me in a predicament.

Personally, I like to watch the anime before reading the manga. Most of the people I have talked to think this as an odd preference. To them to most it is like watching a movie before reading the book. To me, the prior viewing of anime before reading manga simply does not spoil the plot as much as the latter. I can still enjoy both. Does it really matter which you have seen first?

Just to pick a few of my faves…

Naruto – too many anime filler episodes are shaking the boat
Slam Dunk – it’s a close race, brains still racking
Yuu Yuu Hakusho – first half of anime (up to the defeat of Toguro) takes the lead but loses speed during the second half.
Candy Candy – changes in plot of the anime makes it longer, thumbs up to that
One Piece – manga is outrageously funny, but still pondering…

Btw, I read and watch in Japanese, translation / interpretation may be a factor to consider.
So, what's your take on this? Any particular titles you would like to share opinions with?

I guess I like watching the anime cause of all the reactions & the voices makes you live with the story & feel it I really don’t like to read the manga cause of that reason besides it always make me confused

for me it is simply apreference to style, at least currently (I may change my collection in the future), I prefer action anime to drama anime and drama manga to drama anime. There is too much going on in a battle to see it all on the tiny page of a manga, though a drama story just dosn't move quikly enough for me to enjoy it unless I can pick up the pace I read at when it is exciting and slow down as it relaxes........ The only thing I can compare is Naruto, being the only series I have read (part of) and watched (other than fruits basket, which I stopped watching and started reading) and for the manga i did enjoy some of the scenery that was added with additional frames, but I stopped reading it because even the fights became unclimatic, though watching it I have almost lost a monitor and a laptop between Naruto and Bleach watching the cliffhanger endings that occasionally grace my screen.
