Are you more interested in a manga after watching it's anime or are you interested in the manga itself? I have found myself more interested in reading a manga after I watch it's relative anime series. Let's discuss it!

If I read a manga I don't feel overly obligated to watch the anime.

But for some reason when I watch an anime I feel like I want to read the manga right afterwards.

Don't know, that's just how it is for me.

I'm the same way! However, I meant I feel more interested in reading a manga after I have watched it's anime instead of becoming interested in a manga on it's own.

I only read manga if there's an incomplete anime series that I really, really liked.

If I like an anime a lot, I'll almost always look up what it's based on-- manga, LN, or VN--and at least make some effort to see if it exists in English. If it is easily acquirable, I'll often read it immediately.

On the flip side, if I like a manga a lot, I'll usually check to see if there is an anime version, but very rarely will I run out and watch it immediately; things like that tend to sit in my queue for awhile.

Depends what get's my attention first. Though most likely everything defaults to the source material. Really doesn't matter what it is. Most likely than not, its anime to manga or light novels. Not going to Visual novels because I don't like the fact im playing an anime life.

I read far more manga than I watch anime.

I'm always cheering when a manga I enjoy gets animated.

I usually like reading the manga after an anime. I look forward to small stuff that the anime missed, or if it ended weirdly I like to see what really happened. If I start with the manga, I normally don't want to see the anime because it has more filler.

Depends on what I watch. Usually I won't go read the manga after watching the anime, but more often than not I hear about popular anime, and usually check out the manga first before the anime. But lately, I've been more interested in manga, and manga that doesn't have an anime like Vinland Saga, Inside Mari, I am a Hero, etc.

I usually read the manga first and then the anime because I can't fit anime in often.

Let me put it this way, it's easier for me to get interested in a manga series through it's relative anime rather than going straight to the manga.

I used to watch the anime first then when I was hook went straight to the manga and kept going now I'm just more into the mangas. Only watch anime when it's an original one without a manga

I read the manga first.
Then watch the anime.
And back to manga when I finished the anime.
