Should I watch Fairy Tale Anime or read the Manga? I borrowed the first volume for Fairy Tale, read some of it and although I enjoy it, I was wondering if I should skip the Manga and go straight to watching the Anime on Hulu/Amazon Prime.

There is a few Manga that I enjoy that is better than the Anime, like Beserk, and Gantz, only because the show stopped production at some point. The Anime I love to watch on T.V is Death Note as the pacing is awesome and at the end of each episode ends on a good cliffhanger to keep me wanting to watch the next episode.

The other Manga's I'm currently reading is Pokemon since the Anime sucks, Bleach, because the Anime pacing is soooo slooow that I keep falling asleep watching it, Dr. Slump since the Anime quality is kind of old (it needs a reboot).

The Anime I enjoy watching on T.V is Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, and One Piece as I enjoy some of the epic battles and the show comes to life with it's good music, dramatic settings and colors (I skip filler episodes). Some of the episodes can be slow pace though.

I also borrowed Volume 1 of both Prince of Tennis and Bakuman and also curios if I should read the Manga or watch the Anime.

Anyways, back to Fairy Tale, is the Anime action scenes epic and something that I should watch rather then be reading? Is the pacing well done in the Anime? Do you recommend me watching the Anime or reading the Manga?

Read Fairy Tail, Bakuman and Prince of Tennis. Fairy Tail is a good anime but he manga gets me more excited than the anime. Though I never finished reading POT, the manga was more enjoyable than the anime. Bakuman was made by the creators of Death Note. It is a fantastic manga and anime. Watch the anime and read the manga. You'll love both (plus the manga usually has more detail than the anime)

Well, I only will read or watch one of the shows, not both as I will know what the story will be about and that I want to catch up on other shows and manga as well. For Death Note, I hear that the Manga is a little bit too wordy and enjoy the show even though I haven't touched the manga.

What is this Fairy Tale? I've heard of the manga/anime about the guild of wizards called Fairy Tail but never of Fairy Tale. Anyway, the anime has some filler (though some of them are pretty good and funny). I've only read up to volume 30(?) of the manga and I found it to be more enjoyable than the anime, however the anime is still pretty epic. Also you can watch Fairy Tail here as well! No need to use the shit called Hulu. Don't have Amazon Prime so I can't rate that
