when the anime ends in 'read the manga' i usualy just pick up where the anime left off.
tho there are exceptions if i really loved the story.

suzuka i picked up where the anime left off, but im waiting to read the entire thing from the beginning when i can get a hold of a paper english copy.

I like to relax when I read, usually if I read on my phone I will lay back with headphones in listening to some music, but if I read paperback I tend to sit on a seat with the light on and just read away.

I will read manga on my iPad or on computer, sometimes I'll play some soundtrack music from animes I like.

I mostly read manga on my iPad Mini. It's more or less book sized, so it seems more like the real thing. I also make up the characters' voices in my head, and, if I happen to read a manga first and watch the anime second, I'm occasionally 'disappointed' by the characters' anime voices! As for music or any other noise, I prefer not to have it.

Don't we all use our imagination while reading? So it's also like watching anime but you are incharge of what they sound like..

Back when I use to read manga, I just read it how I read my books, I get some place quiet and read or if i'm on a long car ride I read then but most of the time i'm the one driving.

Any environment is fine.

Dead silence can be deafening for me though, there has to be some sort of noise in the room.

Sometimes I listen to music, and sometimes I have the TV on in the background. It all depends. I don't like reading in pure silence.

Occasionally listen to some OST, mostly if I'm reading during the day to avoid noise from outside my room from bothering my poor concentration. During the night I like reading in complete silence.
Just like with Anime, having some snacks and drinks ahead of time is preferred.
Then just throw my feet to the bed lay back on the chair and read till my eyes can't stay open anymore.

It has to be completely silent for me to get into a story any sounds while i'm reading is an annoyance.

I love books of all types, including manga, and over the years have developed a number of habits.
Firstly, I really don't like reading on a screen and will get paper copies whenever I can.
Secondly, position is important. I'd suggest trying out a variety of furniture and "sitting" positions. Some people prefer reading at a desk or lying on their bed. I however, often do my reading sprawled upside-down on a comfy chair. If you're not in a position you find comfortable, reading will be difficult.
I like having ambient sound, whether background music in my room or the scattered conversations found in a cafe. I'd suggest trying out reading in all sorts of environments.
I always create voices when reading. If I watched the anime first, I'll often use those voices since they're stuck in my head, but I don't have a problem changing them if I didn't like them. I also often read manga aloud when I'm alone, especially for action scenes and speeches.


As for your other question, anime adaptations (as with any adaptation) will be different in many ways, whether subtle changes in dialogue, or chapters or even whole arcs cut out or even added in. Anime that end before the manga ends in particular often deviate from the original work. Reading such manga from the beginning allow you to enjoy all of those missing or changed scenes, as well as enjoy your favourite ones all over again. Also, if the story is a plot-heavy one, then reading from the beginning can cause you to understand scenes that didn't make sense before, and spot foreshadowing that you missed before.

I put on music but lower the volume so it doesn't distract me that much. Based on what I read I'll put on some cheery music or sad , I find it very easy to get engrossed in the story that way. I actually like reading manga that don't have an anime adaptation yet so I can get surprised, that's one of the joys of reading those manga IMO.

I don't think it's possible for me not to make up voice for the characters that I read on the manga. It just happens.

I read SlamDunk manga while constantly playing Sekai Ga Owaru Madewa by Wands on a loop.
The music gets into me on certain scenes, like when Mitsui saw his former Coach for the first time after a couple of years of rebellious disappearance.
That actually hit hard. (I grew up playing basketball, that's why.)



I think that's the only manga actually read and listened with music.
