Anime vs manga vs live action

Recommended Posts

Most people would get off starting with watching anime before understanding that they are adaptations from the manga and live actions to-follow if a franchise hits the mark. Anime is mostly great, but nothing can be better than the manga. And as sad as it sounds, the live action would always come off as a disappointment. Better to drift away from live actions for our safety and stick with anime.

I prefer anime over manga. I do know how they get adapted from manga and light novels and it's just my personal preference. I do read manga from time to time and just not often like anime. 

Live action is different and I usually avoid them. The only exception for live action is 'Death note' for me and it's not that bad, when compared to other live action series.

I have yet to see a live action anime movie that I was even remotely impressed with. It's just so hard to cram all the character interactions and development from a show into a movie that 's only a fraction of the show's runtime. 

As far as anime vs manga goes, I don't have a strong preference. I think that some stories are better as anime (Mushi-shi), some are better as manga (Attack On Titan) and some have both a strong anime and manga(Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Death Note). It also depends on how much time I am willing to spend on a series.
