Top Ten Mangas You Should Read Rather Than Watching the Anime

The Top Ten

1 One Piece

I mean, the T.V. series is great and all but the manga’s the real thing - Undistinguished

2 Berserk

The first anime didn’t even cover half of it and also with too much censoring, cutting the important scenes.
But believe me, if you haven’t read the manga then you don’t know Berserk.
The new two animes are awful by the way. - Undistinguished

3 Slam Dunk Slam Dunk

Inoue Takehiko at his best. You shouldn’t miss that. - Undistinguished

4 Orange

Please forget about the anime. The manga is one of the only few shoujo mangas that the boys will also love. - Undistinguished

5 Nisekoi

It’s a shounen manga, man. You can’t turn the anime into a half-shoujo one. - Undistinguished

6 Claymore

Are you really gonna wait longer for the second season? Read the manga already. The art might seem pretty bad at first but that won’t be much of a problem as it is so awesome. - Undistinguished

7 Tokyo Ghoul

I added it lower because I heard there will be a remake of the original manga. - Undistinguished

8 Blue Spring Ride

I don’t know why but almost all shoujo animes are usually bad. - Undistinguished

9 Negima! Magister Negi Magi

The anime covered the worst part of the manga also with the worst artwork possible. - Undistinguished

10 Great Teacher Onizuka Great Teacher Onizuka

The anime is good but do you know that it’s unfinished? Plus the artwork is better. - Undistinguished

The Contenders

11 Black Cat

I loved reading the manga, so I thought I'd check out the anime too. Sadly, I didn't enjoy it nearly as much. The anime starts out with Train's life as an eraser, but the manga's format of starting with Train's life as a sweeper with flashbacks to his former life had a better flow overall & kept the story at a good mix of dark & comedic elements. Even after Train became a sweeper in the anime, it still had a feel to it that resembled a dark back-alley, leaving the mood more serious than the originally funny manga had done so well. And the fight scenes are much better in the manga as well. In the manga, the action was at a decent pace with good visual appeal, but the anime's fights had a pattern of making a few moves, pausing to talk, a few more moves, pausing to talk again & just didn't seem as interesting as the manga. If you're interested in starting the Black Cat series, please just read the manga instead.

12 To Love-Ru

Actually both of them sucks but To Love-Ru Darkness is awesome. - Undistinguished

The first manga is okay while the first anime series sucked.

13 Houshin Engi

I personally liked the anime, but the manga is PURE GENIUS. It's simultaneously tragic and hilarious, it's filled with good action and loveable characters, and it has an ending that will have you question your own existence. The anime only covered a tiny portion of the story and left out most of the best parts and characters...

14 Inuyasha
15 Strawberry 100%

The anime sucks as hell - Undistinguished

16 Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches
