Why is manga so much better than anime?
>>
Why is Literature so much better than weebshit?
>>
>>101336216
One is not inherently better than the other. Manga can be more detailed and have longer more intricate plots, while anime can have good animation and OST. It's pretty much like stating one genre is better than the other.
>>
>>101336216
A lot of people like the source material because it's cool to think "This is how it was MEANT to be experienced!" which is kind of a dumb reason if you think about it, though I think the same thing.
A lot of people in the west like anime better, but I like comics better. It feels so impressive to me when I see really well-done art and I think "this is drawn by one person". I know they have assistants and all, but it just feels so much more impressive than seeing good animation, to be honest.
Plus I like using my imagination a bit, like in books as opposed to movies, and manga's "tropes" seem much less out there than popular anime.
>>
because retarded directors keep pushing their retarded "improvements" while cutting the source material. it happens also in western tv series and movies.

Let's not have this shit thread again, OP.
You don't deserve to be on this board if you think either of the two mediums is inherently "better" than the other.
>>
>>101336216
>>101336443

It's because they don't need to jump through all of the hoops that are required to make an anime, and that means more quality titles and better writing because unlike with anime things that aren't generic aren't as likely to get shot down or not approved..
>>
>>101336596
Yes, but there's still a lot of generic stuff out there. There are probably more generic manga than there are generic anime.
>>
>>101336216
Less people working on it means less people to potentially fuck it up. Plus adaptations require tons of effort in order to produce something of at least equal quality than the source material, effort people are not willing to do because of a lack of budget or simply can't because of incompetent directors.
>>
>>101336216
Because more often than not the anime's art doesn't match up to the original, and instead of taking advantage of the medium a lot of anime directors just adapt their source material panel-for-panel, shot-for-shot.
>>
>>101337083
That's because basically anyone can make a manga opposed to an anime for which you need a team, a studio, Korean slave workers and shitload of money though.
>>
-easier to make just need a pen, paper, and writing/drawing skills, no real risk in making manga

-Japan likes anime more than manga, so they are going to focus on manga more and leave anime to the kids and otaku

-anime is contractually obligated to a limited number of episodes so they have to contain their works in that limit. which wouldn't be a problem except

-most anime are adaptions, and most adaptions tend to suck
>>
>>101340796
>-Japan likes anime more than manga
Am I really reading this? Bwahahah
>>
>>101341037
yeah it's true

manga is more mainstream than anime in Japan
anime is more popular than manga in America though
>>
>>101341174
But you just said that "Japan likes ANIME more than MANGA" when it's the other way around
>>
>>101336271
This.
Metro 2033 manga when?
>>
>>101341232
Whoops sorry I dun goofed.
>>
>>101340796
>Japan likes anime more than manga
Go home kid.
>>
We really need a manga-only board. There's far too much flavor of the month garbage burying the decent manga threads we have once in a blue moon. I wish Joot would make a poll for that to see who's in favor of it or not.
>>
Anime is influenced by the author and the animation studio alike. If it's shit, it's because we dont like the interpretation of the studio though it sometimes adds a certain kind of flavour not existed within the manga versiosn.
To be honest, i dont like faithful anime who stay true to their source, that's just boring.
>>
>>101341779
We don't need to split the board, it would limit conversation if only anime or manga were allowed on 1 board, we wouldn't be able to talk about the source material or adaptations of a series.
>>
Budgets. A decent looking anime costs a lot more than a decent looking manga.
>>
>>101341779
>There's far too much flavor of the month garbage burying the decent manga threads we have once in a blue moon.

like how /a/ is not mostly flavor-of-the-month anime threads

besides moot already did a poll, most voted no still wish for one though
>>
>>101341779
Just use the text board.
>>
>>101342237
A manga board would be incredibly slow and would be mostly people bitching that X series has no translations
>>
>>101342380
>want manga board
>go to /anime/

hmmm

Why is anime so much more discussed here than manga?
>>
>>101342588
Because anime gets more consistent releases.
>>
>>101342453

Slow boards are better than boards with high traffic. /b/ and /v/ are the worst shitholes of this website and they get the most traffic.
>>
>>101342453
it'd be slow but naturally there would probably be more focus on translating if there was a manga board. Either that or it'll be like /jp/ where they encourage their userbase to know runes

It'll mostly be bitching on how much focus there would be on weekly series as opposed to monthly ones aka the ones that people gush about and the fact that people will think that a board that branched off of /a/ will not have waifu threads and be disappointed.
>>
>>101342588
because most of /a/ are American

also subbers > scanlators
>>
>>101342708
>>101342725
Well it wouldn't be the haven for manga you dream of. You'd just get the same flavor of the month stuff just in a greater quantity.
>>
>>101342588
New anime episodes get released weekly and are airing for couple of months at best.

Clearly that's superior to monthly/bimonthly releases of manga that last AGES.

Not that it's superior, it just gives more room for constant discussions compared to manga, if we're talking about a single manga and a single anime. Besides, manga that get translated weekly and run weekly do get huge discussion threads
>>
>>101342237
>>101342725
>>101342877
tl;dr: expect less punpun and more One Piece
>>
>>101342870
What does being American have to do with there being more discussion around anime than manga?
>>
>>101343164
He's implying Americans can't read.
>>
>>101343257
I guess most of /a/ can't read then. Maybe they only come here to look at the pictures.
>>
>>101343164
American's like anime more than manga. That is if they even partake in Nip things.
>>
>>101343417
Where did you get that fact?
>>
>>101343516
From the fact that everyone likes to hate on Americans.

Good job of proving your point there, OP.
>>
>>101342725
>/jp/
>encourage their userbase to know runes

Why isn't it like that here? /a/ is famous for its elitist attitude, why is it, then, that so many people on this board can get away with practically zero knowledge of moon? If I had a nickel for every time I read the phrase "this needs a translation" on this board, I'd have a mansion and three cars paid off by now.
>>
>>101342892
>manga that get translated weekly and run weekly do get huge discussion threads

Not really ( with the exception of the big three)
>>
>>101344040
I was more or less referring to Bleach and One Piece anyway.
>>
>>101343779
/a/ is not really elitist, people CALL /a/ elitist when /a/ calls them out on their shitposting.

on /a/ "elitism" just means "not a /b/tard"
>>
It's cheaper to produce therefore people take more risks in that medium.
And it's not really better, just different, it's a different medium. Comparing manga and anime is like comparing eggplants with apples.
>>
>>101344040
>with the exception of the big three
What other manga is released and translated weekly?
>>
>>101348238
Apples > Eggplants
>>
>>101348623
>Apples > Eggplants
Plebeian maximum.
>>
>>101348238
>eggplants are better for you than apples
>but apples are much more tasty
>>
>>101348604
Magi for example. It only gets big threads in special occasions
>>
>>101349237
And you can thank Alibaba's suffering for that.
>>
>>101349477
SinBAD and shipping, too.
