I'm curious to know if you all have seen both the the anime and the manga. According to MAL's stats, more users have watched the anime then have read the manga.

Both.

Started off by watching the anime.

Started reading the manga simply because Punainen Jättiläinen (translates to "Red Giant", a Finnish manga publisher) started publishing it in Finnish. Buying manga in my mother tongue is a lot cheaper than finding and purchasing English volumes around here.
Eleven volumes are out right now, it's nice having something to look forward to each month.

The anime and manga both captivated me and left me in tears~!!
Even though the anime took a different direction in the plot, it was still great!
I read the manga first, but before I finished, I started the anime~~!! XD

I started by watching the anime and then moved to the manga, since at the time there was no license for the anime, so i couldn't get my dvd fix. I knew manga versions were different to anime counterparts, but boy is it different. I prefer the manga story.

I have watched all of the anime, and I really loved the different approach to the vampire genre. I need to read more of the manga-I am way behind.

I read the manga, and was left with a warm, yet bittersweet feeling after it finished. A year later I watched the anime. I prefer the manga better, but the anime was still all right. Also, more screentime for Maki (though I'd toss Winner and his family to a bottomless pit, thanks).

Fffffffffffffffffiiiiireeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!11

I bought the manga after I saw the anime and I love it more to be honest. I read it ten times already. I finished the manga in August.

Yeah, I watched the anime and loved it; it left me with -that- "omgwantmore!" scent in my mouth, so I read the manga.

By the way, it's sad how it ended in the manga! I was reading it in class and I literally hit the computer and yelled "now come on! was that necessary?!" Still love it =)

I read the manga first. :D Though after being extremely disappointed with the ending, I decided to watch the anime soon after. And trust me, the anime's ending is a lot better.

What? Anime ending better. Are you kidding me? Manga ending is much better than all that anime crap with Vampire hunters. Also romance line of Karin and Kenta totally finished in manga. Or I you from that idiots who don't want their "goddes" to be married in the end (even if chosen guy is her couple from the star)?

I've seen the anime and watched the manga. I read the manga because it was recommended to me and shortly after finishing it, I found out there was an anime of it and that's when I decided to watch the anime.
