Best Way to Know Where an Anime Left Off in the Manga?
Posted 7/26/14
I'm always trying to figure this out. When an anime ends, but the manga still continues the story, where is a good source to always go to that will tell me what volume or chapter of the manga I should start reading at where the anime left off? For example, the AOT anime ended in volume 7 and continues from there so I would start reading around volume 7. I like doing this to save time, unless the show is completely different than the manga.

I can Google this for big shows like Attack on Titan, Wikipedia is helpful for some shows like Soul Eater, or I can ask in the Crunchroll manga forum. But smaller shows like One Week Friends can be difficult to figure out and I don't always want to rely on the forum.

What is a source I can always go to that will tell me what chapter I should begin reading at when I finish the anime adaptation? Thanks!

You skim. You skim every chapter until you see something you don't recognize then you go back. Or just read the manga from the beginning.

Mangaupdates.com generally lists the volumes and chapters that the anime includes.

Just search for the manga there and check the "Anime Start/End Chapter" info. Be careful though, the events of the anime may have branched from the manga at some point, and it's not necessarily always listed in the info.

yup i use mangaupdates/bakaupdates. But if it's just like a 10/12-episode anime it'd probably be good to read from beginning.

I read from the beginning of a Manga, anime or not.

Just as it should be done because anime will generally cut off chapters.

the answer is always yahoo answers lol or sometimes the wiki from the anime, for example fairy tail wiki look at the arcs and its divided by arcs and manga/anime chapters/episodes

Wiki sites can be really helpful on this. For example, if you want to find what chapter a Naruto Shippuden episode covers, you can look up the episode name. For example, Shippuden episode 337, "The Izanami Activated", corresponds to ch. 585-6.

I'd say read it from the beginning because you never know how much the anime left out or how different it is from the manga.

I just read from beginning. For example I used to watch onepiece when it was on Toonami back in the day and they stopped at the Crocodile arc. 2 years later I decided "I wanna get back into onepiece" but by that time i had gotten more into manga and hadn't really be watching anime. I didn't feel like finding where the crocodile arc ended in the manga tho so I just decided to read from the beginning :/

Personally I suggest not even trying to find the cut off point because reading the manga is always better imo and theres usually alot more information you can get from reading the manga that the anime doesn't have.

I know that's not what you wanted to hear but my personal opinion. Other than that... google?
