That's a bad habit. You would just need to read the manga from the start if the adaptation was bad.
It should be reading the manga first then watch the anime.
So, you would know why others are so upset about the outcome of the anime.
Haters always gonna hate.

What about you guys?

It's much more comfortable for me to read the manga, which means that in some instances I'll drop the anime outright in favor of it.

If I'm interested to see the continuation, I'll read the manga after finishing the anime. Depending on people's opinion about the adaptation (good or bad), I read from ch 1 if needed.

Recently my 'currently reading' list got bigger, and it's hard to follow many manga, so I put some on my 'plan to read' list so I won't forgot what series I should read.

It honestly depends because unlike you lazy can't be bothered to read people mangas are ridiculously easy to run through more so than an anime is because there's no have to keep up wi the pacing of the backgroun music and text speed as well as spped of the line readings by voice actors and in cases where the subbing is just god awful to the point where I an American can pick problems in the translations *cough* Kodomo no Omocho *coughh*I think that some mangas are worth reading even if you haven't watched the anime and sometimes even light novels are worth reading, for example I much preferred the light novel version of high school dxd to its anime counterparts I'm not entirely sure why but probably because the retardness is explained better. Naruto is better in manga version because of the lack of fillers but more importantly gives way better pan shots for talk no jutsu, there's something to be said about the like 3 page split of naruto talking at (not to) sasuke at the bridge. Some shows like OreImo which I watched anime first refuse to even rewatch the show let alone read the manga but even a show like Familiar of Zero is an incredible read in light novel form the manga is good but I prefer the light novel to the manga. 95% of shoujou manga are better in their original mediums than in anime form such as Kaichou and School Rumble. Some shows even stick to manga material almost religiously Shokugeki no Soma and Bakuman are two shows where it's hard to rate which is better but I like the Shokugeki no Soma anime slightly better than the manga because the jokes flow really well and Erina's mad face is freaking hysterical animated. Bakuman manga is better than anime but that took me like 20 minutes to actually decide. I have taken to mangas when the ending of a show was literally like I'm gonna punch a hole in the wall (I wish I could say Major but the manga ending sucked too) but some really rise above what's in the anime. For the record my biggest problem with Japan's culture is how they like open endings for whatever reason, what's the saying if you try to catch two hares you will end up with none (lol school days). Trinity sevens manga is good but the anime fits the characters to their roles perfectly and the actresses and the main lead knock it out of the park with how natural the work flows. I could probably continue but I'm feeling like I'm getting further away from my original objective I really think shows like welcome to the nhk stand put when the animes rise above their original works cause I hated the manga ending and regression at the end but I like their increased usage of drugs in the light novel version as it was more realistic of an idea anyway but the anime had a few poignant scenes that were done better in the anime than e manga and the ending of the anime is just so much better then the manga ending but you still need to read it, it's really strange how some manga are like that. Ashita no joe is a great manga but I'll be damned if I'm not gonna watch dem fights in an anime. Endings usually do it for me in terms of transitioning to manga from an anime because it's he easiest way to find it if you like a series but god damn fist of the north star is nothing less than one of the greatest mangas I've ever read in my life (then again I've only read about 300ish). Reading the mangas before watching the anime is setting yourself up to be let down because mangas usually have more depth than anime counterparts but I really do have to respect that type of fortitude because I hope you didn't have to experience Schools days twice, I guess all I can say is gombare KaoruMatsuoka-san.

I usually watch the anime first. If it's going to have a second season not aired yet, I'll watch the already finished one and then try to catch up with the manga before its release date.

Well, I often do. Either if I like an anime a lot and want to find out how the original compares. Or I dislike the anime, but think the concept is interesting and want to find out if the original handled it better. Or an anime is good but done primarily to sell the manga. It usually ends after one season and oftentimes on a cliffhanger so I want to know what happens next.

Well, sometimes I do. It depends. I read ERASED when I was still watching it's anime counterpart. And I read Soul Eater after finishing the anime. But I don't normally read manga unless it's really good.

If I don't like a medium of entertainment I'm not going to enjoy it. It's a very simple concept. The quality of the manga is irrelevant, I don't like the medium. Don't need to be a 'genius' to understand this very simple concept.

95% of the times I read the manga before watching the anime. Or it's more like I end up watching adaptations of manga I've already been reading for a long time...
Anyway, I'm the "original first" type.

I'll read the manga if:

1. I REALLY liked the show and want to see it again in another format
2. The show didn't cover the entire manga and I want to know what happens next
3. Someone recommends the manga to me when they hear I've seen the show

I, too, read the manga from the beginning after I watch the anime. I read it from the start because the series may be sometimes different from the manga.

With long running things ie long Shounen shows like one piece I caught up on anime then read Manga from start to compare how close it was to anime.
Not often do I do that but occasionally I do

don't use your self-righteous bullshit on me just admit to the fact that you're too lazy to read all it is. Nice try taking the lol "moral high road" I can like whatever I like is equivalent to Eric Cartman saying: "Screw you guys I'm going home". If I don't like the medium hahahahaha that funny no really it is, I'm saying you're a genius because you live by the saying ignorance is bliss the reason I'm calling you an idiot is because you're so close-minded to this idea to the point if I ever saw your post again In another forum I would disregard it because there's no point having an argument with someone (not a fun one anyways) who can't be bothered to see that there are some mantas out there that have such impressive characters, setti, themes , you name it with so much more depth and sometimes realism in them to the point that their stories far surpass at least 70 % of the animes I've seen in terms of their overall quality. I believe this type of ignorance is unforgivable because it doesn't take much effort to read a manga but don't hide behind your bullshit do called tastes, just own up to the fact that you're too lazy to bother to read manga.

I enjoy light novels, I do not enjoy manga. I enjoy books, I do not enjoy comics. I'm not close minded, I know what I like and understand different people have different preferences towards entertainment mediums. This is apparently difficult for you to comprehend, so I will not be replying anymore. I never said anything towards the nature of ignorance is bliss, I've read manga. I did not enjoy it. I would not say i don't like the medium if I did not try the medium.

Never. If the anime delivers poor closure it turns me off the franchise, and if the anime ended on a good note I don't want to ruin it by reading further. When I pick up an anime that's the only chance the franchise has with me.

I will watch a visual novel adaptation if it's a good VN, but never read a VN after watching its anime first.

I don't know yet if I'd watch an anime that was adapted from a manga I already read, as I haven't been in that situation yet. But probably if it's a good manga.

Depends if I liked the anime's story, characters, etc and if I want to find out what happens next/ how it ends.
Could I be sick, hm?
There’s no way I could be, right!

I do as doing it the other way around might ruin the experience but if you watch the anime first then read the manga than you enjoy the anime then get to enjoy more about the world/s they're apart of. I do this for Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings etc as well :)

So far I've only read 1 manga, Deadman Wonderland, because I was so curious of what was supposed to happened after the last episode of the anime. Whenever I feel like reading manga of some unfinished anime, I feel that there's a whole lot of others I still need to watch, so I end up watching anime.
A retard is trying to prove his point, thanks.

I plan to read the manga if I enjoyed the anime and if it wasn't a complete adaptation.
However, the number of times I tend to actually follow through on this? Very rare, lol.

Most of the manga I read is original stuff that hasn't been adapted into anything.

I actually recently began doing this. I mainly grab the manga for long trips, as visiting my parents takes me nearly 7hrs from my place to theirs. So I began buying mangas of my favourite animes and started reading them. It's a nice change from my 3ds and sudoku.

It still hasn't become a habitual pattern but lately I feel inclined to check it after completing the anime although there are certain condition to be matched before, first I should deem the anime worthy enough to check and indulge at its original source/manga and if possible the source is a completed and not too long one.

It really depends on what anime I watch. But most of the time, I just wait for a second season of the anime to come out.

Well I've done it once, with Nisekoi, but even so, instead of starting from the beginning, I picked up where the anime left off so I've never really done it before I guess. Normally what I do is, for an anime with a manga series that goes beyond what the anime covers, than I'd finish the manga and then read. I'm probably weird for doing that.

At some point? Its backwards for me because until the past few years I usually mostly read manga and not watched the adaptations of the shows. Now I watch adaptations of what I read, and watch shows as previews to decide whether or not something is worth reading. I read a lot so I have a lot on hold and a lot I need to get around to and catch up on so its a good way to see if new things are interesting or catch up if I say haven't read something in a few years and just refresh my memory.

It's reversed for me.

I usually just read manga that were originally manga (like Shonen Jump manga)

And if I happen to like the manga enough, I watch (part of) the anime to see how it gets adapted; its just interesting to see how it would look animated.

Conversely, I don't have much motivation to read manga of original anime.


I'm the same and I agree wholeheartedly.
I found that 95% of the time the source material to be better for both anime and manga.

Yes I'm reading the Gintama manga because the anime hasn't animated the rest of the story yet.

In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth. But the world isn't perfect, and the law is incomplete..." -Alphonse Elric

I'll take anything like The Pet Girl of Sakurasou. Anything as good as that.

Me too. Otherwise I don't really worry about the Manga since most Anime are usually LN's anyway. And to be honest, I feel a lot of LN"s are just Fanfiction that people pay for. Some of the words in them feel like something ripped straight out of fanfiction.net

Unfortunately most of the time, when I go to check out the source material, it is either a light novel or a novel, most of them have manga versions but they're ongoing and very few in chapters

Yes, if i really like the anime or if I feel like the story would be better in the manga, I'll totally give it a try, tbh. Anime normally doesn't go as deep as manga.

Don't like manga as a medium but just started doing this for some lns, starting from the start. Will soon start checking out lns I haven't watched the anime of before, just getting back into reading after a 2-3 year break, used to read 1-2 novels a week.

Sit back, smoke up and chill to Madoka Rebellion. A truly beautiful experience that matches and perhaps even surpasses any iyashikei....provided you're at peace with it before starting XD
