Well, i have friends who say the manga is better because of the details and friends who say anime is better because it shows them moving and stuff with actual action in it though it isn't all that detailed.
Personally, i go with manga but what do you think?? Why??

Click! I know you wanna.

well.... manga came before anime e.g. naruto was manga before the anime, so without manga there wouldn't be anime to watch!!! so... if you have a t.v./computer you can watch anime, but if you're on the move like on a train or bus you can read the manga instead... personally, i like both manga and anime.

Will I like them Both anime & manga but I like Anime more than manga because have u notice that the manga has half of the story than on anime. Like when u are reading the manga & it not like the anime, it just has more details but thats what I think.

I like the Manga for the added details

I like the Anime for the animation part...brings the characters to life and so the emotions / characteristics etc came through

In conclusion, i like them both!

Can somebody add a poll to this thread?

VK is one of a very FEW series for which I prefer the ANIME because:
- the anime artwork is prettier When I read the manga, I was confused about which character is which and what's going on; had a hard time interpreting the drawings
- the anime MUSIC and sound effects are epic!
- I want to hear Zero's voice! It's so warm!

I definitely liked the manga so much more than the anime.
Because of all the obvious stuff, like the manga is more detailed.
But I also like the portrayal of both Zero and Kaname in the manga too

Also, the way they end(ish). The anime just ends with all the vampires leaving, and the sad scene at the gate with Zero and his memories. I felt kind of hollow with the abrupt end of action. But the manga keeps going, and you see more how Zero has hardened, not broken.

Well, no one is sure if VK anime has ended there yet. If the animators plan on another season, obviously they have to wait for more plot developments. Recall that they didn't start making the anime until manga volume 5-6.

Yeah, there's not enough material out yet for another season. And there should be another season (L)

But because anime has to come out in seasons, it won't flow the same way that the manga did at this transition point.
Also, the anime has some things added that won't work
example, in the manga, when Yuki and Kaname are together, Yuki's still in pain because she has to drink the blood of both her loves at least once (crazy vampires)
But in the anime, Zero already had her drink his blood to prove she was a vampire.

it really depends
like for action ones i would rather watch the anime but for some they look better as manga
but most of the time i guess would go with anime.

i watched the anime then read the manga that continued on from the anime, i'd have to say i prefer the anime because its coloured xD and just everything look sclearer (like who said what etc). i just can't get into the manga and feel really tired reading it, i guess i don't normally read them so i'm not use to it. the manga would probably be more detailed though i guess like how books are usually better than when they are made into movies. if vk was a book i'd probably prefer that over the anime books > mangas.

I don't know I really like both the Manga and the Anime. Yet in the anime there is no "Sara" which kind of makes me confused because she should have been added in there even though she is most likely going to be in the third series of it. That is like the only reason why I do not really like the anime. Other wise I completely love both because they are both really epic and get me hooked on wanting to know what is going to happen next within the next episode or chapter
