Should I get the manga if I watched an anime that is adapted? It's a bad habit I have and that are manga series that haven't been released in English

Relative to anime, manga tend towards:

-- More in depth; more development of side characters and more sub-plots, in particular.
-- More likely to have a satisfying ending. Most anime lack satisfying conclusions. Many more manga end on a reasonable note.
-- Worse fight-scenes. Many manga fight scenes aren't thought out as well; by animating them, the fight scenes tend to work more smoothly.
-- Lack of voice acting can be either a positive or a negative, depending on the quality of the voice acting.

I can't tell you what you should do--after all, it depends on the anime/manga in question and on what you liked about the anime in particular. If you've watched all seasons of Dragon Ball because you love the fight scenes, then you probably aren't missing a lot by not reading the manga. If you watched Maid-Sama because you liked the relationship between the main couple, then you should definitely read the manga to see how that relationship continues to progress.

I meant I have many anime series that are based on manga (and light novels) -- including manga that have never been released in English. I was only askin' should I buy the manga?
