Top 10 Mangas That Were Better Than the Anime

Anime has so much filler that the Manga counter part is always superior.

The Top Ten

1 Tokyo Ghoul

The anime's pretty good, to be honest... The animation, the voice acting, the lighting, the tone, the feel, the vibe... But, it's a shame that they had to rush the story so much.

The Plot totally disappointing. - Undistinguished

Everyone knows that manga is released first, it's the canon that the anime is based on. Thus, anime's "augmentation" of the more "condensed" manga. I couldn't care less if manga goes faster, great things are worth savoring for a longer time. Filler gives me more scenes with my favorite characters, the best thing to me, far from "useless". It can elaborate on events mentioned but not previously shown. Manga's only superiority is that the pictures and words "stay" for prolonged viewing. I say: the anime is superior.

I totally disagree. I'm a 'character fancier'. The fillers and flashbacks give me more footage of my favorite characters (who were killed off in the canon, leaving the inferior characters). Extra stories are good, I say the more the merrier. The anime augments canon scenes with more dialogue and fight maneuvers, making them better. Anime always has the advantages of motion, color, real voices and sound effects, and soundtrack music. Manga seems like a condensed version.

Manga usually gets released before the Anime. And even then the Manga usually is faster, a Anime takes 2-3 episodes just to cover a page of the Manga. Anime has far more useless filler than Manga. Making the Manga always superior. - Jeffery0206

The anime is filled with fillers. I mean 10 episodes for just 1 volume that's just nuts

I'm absolutely furious that Lynn just had to kill Lucy/Kaede off when Lucy/Kaede deserves a brighter, better future than ever before and usual so far. She's been through enough already.

The anime suck but the manga is amazing. I would admit I forgot it exist for a moment and I can't even remember where the story is right now but I remember that it's being so good. I just wish I would be able to finish it one day.

I loved the manga, but the anime was probably meh at best. My main complaint is that the anime had all the events run in chronological order, but the manga's storyline starting with Train's life as a Sweeper with his past presented in a series of frequent flashbacks just flowed better overall.

I literally puked after watching this disgrace of an anime. To think I was expecting so much after reading that awesome manga... - Undistinguished
