Since CR has added the manga to the anime subscription I wanted a forum to find out where the anime ended and the manga picked up. This can be anime/manga on CR or other places.

For example: CR has the anime of Arpeggio of Blue Steel. Once the anime was over I wanted to know where I could pick the story up in the manga. So, I am hoping that this thread will allow people to say now that this anime (pick your choice) is over you can pick up the story in the manga starting with chapter...

This is not limited to just CR anime/manga Hope this make sense.

This will be my first forum so if there is another one like this just close it and direct me there.

Since CR has added the manga to the anime subscription I wanted a forum to find out where the anime ended and the manga picked up.

For example: CR has the anime of Arpeggio of Blue Steel once the anime was over I wanted to read the manga but did not have the extra money to get the subscription. Now that the subscriptions are combined what chapter in the manga did the anime end so one can pick right up in the manga. So, I am hoping this thread will allow all to know where to begin in the manga. This is not limited to just CR anime and manga. Hope this make sense.

I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

It seems it could be helpful,so I encourage people to add what they know.

Unfortunately I have no idea about Arpeggio of Blue Steel or much else.

On CR:

- Bokku wa Minna (The anime is called The Kawai Complex Guide...) goes to about ch 28

- The Mysterious Girlfriend X anime covers (roughly) the first 35 chapters.

- The Arpeggio of Blue Steel manga is VERY different from the anime; they have a lot of plot elements in common, but things go in a much different order, and some of the events play out differently. I don't even know how to answer the question for that one.

- Attack on Titan's anime covers about the first 33 chapters. The anime and manga tell the same story, although the manga has a lot more detail, especially about the side characters and the setting, so just be aware.

Some others:

- Maid-Sama: goes through ch. 32

- S.A.: Special A: Goes through ch. 53, though it consolidates some events to get to where it wants to go.

- Ah My Goddess: Skips around a lot, and covers different episodes and events from roughly the first two hundred chapters, with most of the first season taking place in the first 50 chapters.

- The World God Only Knows: Season Three ends with Chapter 189; there is a little skipping, but not much, and what is skipped is pretty well summarized in the anime.

Hey, I found the discussion! So, to address your concern herein: in most instances with which I am familiar, an anime which is based upon manga creates its own story arc in order to offer viewers an intelligible story with some form of ending. This is necessitated by anime series having a much more limited run in which to tell their story, versus a serialized manga. In the example of Arpeggio of Blue Steel, the manga is ongoing, while there has already been one full season of an anime as well as two movies scheduled for release this year (the first having been released on 28 January). And, of course, two related music albums by Trident. So you usually can't pick up a manga from the end of its related anime, although you can often find the rough time period and general storyline within the manga to which its anime belongs.

[I would offer Usagi Drop as an example of why this can be a good thing: this is my favorite anime--no, actually, my favorite show--telling its own limited story in a delicate, searching manner that can break and then mend your heart as often as you'll let it. And you can pretty much pick up the manga exactly where the anime ends. But the progression of the manga becomes increasingly disturbing and repugnant, completely destroying--more accurately, desecrating--the sense of innocence portrayed earlier. So it can be good to accept an anime as its own separate artistic accomplishment without worrying about how it fits into its inspirational source material. Seriously, watch Usagi Drop, but don't read it.]
