Some people like to read a Manga, some people watch it as anime, some do both!

I generally prefer to watch anime. But if I'm supposed to read a Manga then I shouldn't have watched it's anime adaptation cause reading after watching is boring for me.

Generally go for anime based on enjoyment of voice actors, music & good animation, but there are a few instances in which I've been advised by multiple sources that the anime does things egregiously wrong or the manga is a better version of the story so I've opted for that instead.

I'm definitely open to both mediums.

I'm a bigtime Manga fanboy. I can go at my own pace, don't get any character voices or behaviors put into my head, and get to experience the source EXACTLY as it was intended.

I had read over halfway through One Piece before going to the Anime, and the childish english voice they had for Luffy ruined it within a matter of episodes. I tried to watch subbed, but to be honest I can't really stand reading while trying to watch - too distracting for me.

So, I stopped watching One Piece, and went back to reading it - I just finished the Big Mom arc and am hungry for more!

(I will say that doesn't mean I WON'T watch anime, I love well-animated fight scenes and the music is usually really good, but manga is where it's at for me)

Depends on the franchise.

MHA: Anime, because those fight scenes! I'll probably start the manga soon, because it's further ahead.

FMA: Manga, because it's a complete story that doesn't rush the beginning. Anime has cool fight scenes, though

OPM: Webcomic, because it's hilarious and far ahead. Manga, because the art is astonishingly good. Anime, because it's easy to show friends.


What I'm saying is that I tend to get lost in franchises and aggressively consume all media in hopes of finding my way back out.
