Title: Anime you liked better than the manga?
Post by: hychelseap on April 04, 2013, 10:40:21 PM
I know a lot of anime series change the original story line for logistical reasons like (1) manga isn't finished yet (2) the company thought it would make more money this way.
I was curious to what anime you actually liked/preferred over the manga because it had an alternate plot/ending.

--
Personally I thought Black Butler did really well in its anime adaptation, especially how season two brought in so many other characters.
I thought Magi did really well too, despite it being rushed. Hopefully season 2 of Magi will be better and fill in some of the loop holes!

What are your thoughts?

There are some scenes in One Piece that they really amped up for the Anime. There's a lot of action, so that helps.

I do wonder what Anime have different endings than their manga counterparts, is there a list anywhere?

Usually, people prefer manga endings rather than the anime because the manga endings/plots are more detailed/extended than the anime.

I agree with you about Black Butler.  The anime is just gorgeous.  I have never read the Magi manga.

I know people are going to kill me, but I have (finally) started reading Naruto.  I am surprised at how much I love the manga.  However, I actually like watching the fight scenes on TV better than trying to figure out what the heck is going on in the manga.

True that. I had to watch the anime version during the Punk Hazard arc since there are too many stuffs going on, so it ended up being too chaotic in the manga. lol

Initial D... it goes along with what others have already stated: any action is better in anime than reading it through manga. But Initial D was one of those I couldn't stand in manga format. I just couldn't sit through three pages... .__."

I preferred the anime version of Hajime no Ippo, in terms of the boxing matches.

Anime version of romance animes tends to be better... althought the plot and certain details ;P are not as good...

I also enjoyed the anime version of Hellsing, especially the scene where Alucard messes around with Luke..

Gintama. The manga is hilarious. The anime is even more. Comedy is always better when actually acted out than read in my opinion. The characters' voices made things much funnier.
