Well, I prefer the manga cause it's like watching a movie based off a book And, basically, for me, books are better than the show Also, watching anime takes up most of my time since I watch from the internet and it takes time to load and watch the whole thing while when you read manga, just wait a few seconds for the whole picture to load and boom You're already at the 50th chapter in just 2 hours When watching anime, you're still in the 6th episode in 4 hours
I think anime but I guess I'm not allowed to watch anime. I think books are better than the shows too. But I mostly think if you're watching anime, it's like watching TV. And I get what you mean. It takes up my time. And you mostly have to wait it to load. And I agree what you said at the last part. You got a good point.
Serena, Iridescence, I agree with both of you I mostly read manga without watching anime, because i think that anime is a great time wasting. But there's an exception)) It's Death Note. I like the anime more, though the manga is very interesting too
I prefer both, but if I have to choose it will definitely be manga. Anime generally don't follow the manga storyline which is always a disappointing factor for me and sometimes the drawing may not also be on par.

For me, it depends on the series. I prefer the manga but I like to watch the anime as well because I have seen that the manga and anime may be different from each other. I also like to watch the anime counterparts because the series itself is so amazing and I want to have the glory of watching it in action
I highly prefer moving pictures, so entertainment-wise, I'd go with animé. If I'm not familiar with the source material—which is most of the time, since I don't read a lot of manga—then there's nothing to be disappointed about in its animated adaptation. *shrug*
I usually don't compare since reading and watching give me entirely different experiences. On the one hand, you've got a (probably) more coherent plot and (probably) more attractive character designs; on the other, you've got voices, music, and action that bring life to the once static images.
Of course I'm not saying animé is better, because that would be a lie. ;) I just try to see animé as complementary to the manga.
