Anime bc I love seeing the fight scenes animated! Even though in the manga they are really good, nothing beats seeing it actually animated (for me anyways haha)

Definitely prefer manga. Sometimes anime adaptations can be better than the manga though. (Example: The Princess Tutu anime is WAY better than the manga version.)

I almost always find the manga counterpart better. They usually have more "story" which sometime get diluted while getting into the anime. But nothing is better than an anime which takes a great manga and adds the right cast of seiyuu and a good soundtrack. Those are positively heavenly!

Depends...Both has its pros and cons.
Anime sometimes has more to watch but draggy.
Manga sometimes has too many words in a page but more original...

I like both. But i prefer first read the manga and then watch the anime.
But sometimes watching the anime makes you want to read the manga.

Even though most of the time the adaptation aren't great, I prefer anime. Color, sounds, BGM... I just like it more. When I read manga I feel like I miss on a lot.

Always manga.

1)Art - most of the time original artist art is better. There are exceptional to some series
2)Plot - Adapted anime tends to fast forward on certain plot line. Although I have to admit some anime has more polished plot than manga.
3)Pacing - Manga better pacing for adapted anime.
4)Character Portrayal - The same for both manga and anime.

Always manga. Most anime, especially shoujo, have to leave out significant amounts of story to fit it into a series that only runs 1 season.

It's depend of the situation. I probably prefer manga more than anime. Manga have more detail and the story line doesn't is way better. As for the anime, sometime, the story line change and added unnecessary things to. I do watch anime when I have the chance.

I would prefer to watch Anime due to the possibilities offered with a visual medium.

It all depends. Fast action sequences(fights, sports, etc.) is easier for me when they are animated. However, mangas focused on romance I prefer mangas.

Typically, I don't find the average anime as enjoyable as the average manga. With anime, you run into many instances of uncompleted / cheap endings. That doesn't happen nearly as often with manga. Also, quite a few anime have poor quality animation due to a low budget, whereas most manga art stays fairly consistent and can even improve as the series continues. And don't even get me started on how a lot of anime adaptations turn out to be simple advertisements for the original work. Grr. Those always frustrate me.

Anime is slightly more enjoyable. Though it really depends on the adaptation, some adaptations are just unwatchable due to unnecessary changes that don't make sense.

Though I read more manga than I watch anime.

I prefer manga. I like better the rythm of a story that has the proper time and space to develope.

But sometimes when the anime is not just the condensed manga but gets new elements, storylines or characters that are great and are revised by the author, that's when the anime beats the manga. Let's not forget the music involved.

I prefer Anime to get good sense of series, but quickly switch to manga, as the manga is faster to read / better art, and better storyline + funny moments

I usually prefer manga only because the anime usually ends prematurely. Also, I feel like the anime will have fillers and will unnecessarily exaggerate a small scene. For example, the Silver Spoon anime had a scene where the main character was told to sit up straight on a horse, but the anime made a big point about it. I figured that they needed the extra two minutes to make the episode long enough. Oh, and the constant flashbacks in One Piece's anime...

One more note, I hate how the art sometimes changes when converted to an anime. I'm glad I didn't watch the Love Hina anime. Although, Natsume Yuujinchou was very well done.

I find that I can enjoy both anime and manga but that I usually prefer to read the manga first. It's nice to see your favorite scenes "acted" out in the anime and yet know all the backstory and details from the manga. Although some action based mangas can be hard to follow. For example, I always had a lot of trouble following the action scenes of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle.
