Hey guys,

Does anyone here start (and finish) reading a manga/light novel for a selected title and then watch the anime afterwards?

I feel like it's the right way to go about things as the manga titles tend to have more in-depth details on the story, character development etc.

I know some people prefer to watch anime first, but what do you guys think?

I usually don't read manga when there's an anime based on it. Since both anime and manga are graphic media, the visual element is a big part of why I'm into them, and anime delivers more on that front. The one time I've been really glad I read the manga in addition to watching the film/series was with Koe no Katachi (A Silent Voice). The movie was great, and it was awesome watching the signing instead of seeing weird hand-wavy lines in the manga, but when you read the comics, you get a little more info about what's going on with the side-characters that's pretty important. Taken together, I consider it a masterpiece.

yes I love how in the manga you can take it slow and take time to admire the art in it so I'm doing manga first just trying something new

I used to never read manga, but then i watched school live and it ended on a clif hanger so i decided to start reading manga. But I always watch the anime first and then read the manga. I usually do this cause I prefer to buy my manga, so I have to wait for it to release in the United States. Im also to lazy to find new manga lol :p

Like others have already said, I generally watch the anime first. Then I'll move onto the manga if I want more.

In the end I'd like to have both bases covered, but at the beginning it just varies. If I know about and follow a manga during its early days then of course there'd be no anime. Opposite of that, if I come across an interesting anime I'd probably just start watching it. If I find out it's based on a manga then I'd be sure to check that out eventually.

Only did it for Hunter x Hunter because I had no choice and then the remake came.
