Telling A Person Watching THE Anime That the Manga is Better

Everyone has heard this at some point while watching anime. "The manga is way better than the anime!" Some are grateful for this input and I salute them but personally, I find it rather annoying.

(PS: I suck at writing these posts so it's all jumbled up. It's too short I'm sure but this is just my view on the matter)

Books over TV? Scary! picture done by moai

Chances are if the person is watching the anime over manga they either:

  1. Don't care about reading manga.
  2. Didn't know one existed.
  3. Or you know... They just like watching anime!

Personally I fit into number 1 and 3. Manga is expensive for me. Reading it online just gives me a headache and I can't sit still long enough to read more than a one shot or 2. So obviously watching anime is much more preferred in my case. Anime over Manga for me~ I always know manga exist for my favourite series but generally I can't be bothered with them. The only time I'm ever interested in picking up a manga is after I've watched the anime and liked it A LOT or there is no anime of the manga I've gotten interested in. Oh, there's also those "rare" anime that just "end" which I enjoyed a lot and since I'm aware that those have manga which keep on going with the story *looks at Kare Kano, Berserk, and Claymore* I'll want to read those at some point. Those rare cases are the only time I will even give a Manga over Anime person the time of day when it comes to pushing manga.

This book? Way better than your TV! picture by ak0130

So why do people bother telling someone else that the manga is so much better? My answer to this is simple. They liked the series in question a tonne! It just happens to be one of their all time favourites and they just can't imagine anyone hating their favourites! I'm totally ok with people humping their favourites... But... What really ticks me off is when these people suddenly think it's ok to say the manga is sooo much better when you aren't even enjoying the anime. What makes them think if they tell this to someone that they will even want to give the series more of a chance by having to reading it. Does it really deserve that? No. Only if the person was on the fence of LIKE or GREAT could this possibly work. I think it's pretty rare to go to liking something when you were already finding it quite meh.

Reading or watching! I don't care! Just leave me be! picture by uzura yuuno

So yeah I'll always be an Anime over Manga person. I love you Manga over Anime people but you won't ever convert me so give it up! 😛 By the way, magical girl anime will ALWAYS be better than their manga! Why? What's better than watching a transformation sequence? Certainly not reading it! 😀

Tuesday Tally Week 2-4 Oi! January 11-31

So yeah the goal was to do this every week no matter what... BUT of course things just get in the way now and then and it was impossible for me to do for 3 weeks... The good news is that I didn't overly watch a lot of anime in those 3 weeks. Uncharacteristic like for me but real life just stepped in for the month and everything was pushed back anime blog wise. Although the title mark in this post looks huge it was mostly just small ova's and movies. I've gotten back into my anime mood over the last few days so I think things are back to normal!

^________^

January 11-16

Trigun Movie re-watch x2

Overall: I actually watched it 3 times total now since it came out. I find it very fun to watch and my second viewing was with other bloggers over Skype. Interesting to see others reactions to it. Too bad I had to leave half way through the viewing.

Gintama episodes 62-86

Overall: Episode 79 with the toilet paper crisis is probably my favourite episode of Gintama of all. It just makes me laugh a hell of a lot! It is also time since I've reached episode 86 that I am not re-watching episodes anymore and from now on every Gintama episode will be new to me.

Starry Sky episode 4

Overall: These voices don't match these douches at all. I can't stand it. I'm considering dropping it at this point.

Kamichu episodes 1-5

Overall: Kamichu is the first title I decided to watch that I haven't seen yet from digitalboy's top 100 list. It has a very slow start so I'm afraid that I won't end up enjoying it as much as I had hoped. 4 20:22

Well I suppose this didn't need to be added to Final Fantasy o.o

Final Fantasy Legend Of The Crystals OVA

Overall: Each episode takes a look at one of the 4 crystals. I can't say it adds anything to Final Fantasy in general but it was a fun watch. ep 2 7:00

Gintama episodes 87-88

Wandering Son, Kimi ni Todoke, and Fractale episode 1 was watched. Thoughts on these are here. I watched 7 episode 2's for some of the current airing anime too, but nothing worth mentioning since I can't really remember anything from them and didn't take proper notes.

Love Stalking *click to read*

Finished the Manga Love Stalking

Overall: This is a short smutty manga where each chapter (there's 4) follows a girl and her strange love life at the time. I enjoyed the sexy parts and only one of the stories so this gets a 5/10. The title doesn't make much sense either since only one of the stories involved stalking...

What a pro eroge VA

The high school girl not so much... YET!








January 17-25

Koe de Oshigoto! re-watch

Overall: This is one funny ova about a high school girl who decides to learn how to become an eroge voice actress.

Gundam Seed episodes 20-25

Level E episode 2

Overall: I'm suppose to be episodically blogging this series but... Yeah... I'll do a batch episode release this week hopefully and get back on track. Simply loving this series though!

Gintama episodes 89-90

Your Color *click to read*

Finished the Manga Your Color

Overall: Really short yuri manga that doesn't really go anywhere 5/10.

Ikenai Candy Love *click to read*

Finished the Manga Koi wa Tenka no Mawarimono - Ikenai Candy Love

Overall: Meet a really shy quiet working girl who is about to loose her job. She happens to see a higher up getting a blow job in the alley way and things start to pick up for her from that point on. This manga actually has 4 other stories in it (I think) but only this one has been translated. I shall be eagerly awaiting the others in hopes that they were as good as this one was! 9/10 easily.

Naughty Honey *click to read*

Finished the Manga Naughty Honey

Overall: 6/10 I don't have much else to say about it honestly...

Girlfriend *click to read*

Finished the Manga Girlfriend

Overall: Another compilation manga showing off girls and their loves. Some are good most are rather meh. 2 of them actually ended up intertwining story wise which I found to be most interesting. I feel that my 7/10 is generous but I did enjoy the ones I found that were good very much.

January 26-27

Andersen Douwa - Ningyo Hime Movie

Overall: Lets just say that this does not have a Disney's happy ending. Pretty good watch even though I viewed it over youtube.

Zenryoku Usagi episode 39

Twelve Months Movie

Overall: I had heard great things about this movie from a friend and it didn't disappoint! It was a fun story about a Cinderella type girl who was used and abused by her adoptive mother and sister. Sent out on new years eve to gather a basket full of flowers for the spoiled rotten Queen that is no older than a girl because she offered a basked full of gold coins. The poor freezing girl luckily ends up meeting some mysterious men who happen to represent the 12 months of the year! Since this girl is so kind they help her out with the gathering of these flowers due to their magical powers. Also viewed over youtube.

Gag Manga Biyori Jump Festa

Tell me what YOU see here

Yumeiro Patissiere OVA

Overall: This was one strange little ova since it made me think of perverted things when it totally shouldn't have. The rest of the series wasn't like that so why do it in the OVA?!

Cool Cool Bye OVA

Suteneko Tora-chan Movie

Overall: This adorable cat themed 1947 movie short is great. It's like a cat opera which I found most amusing.

Noel's Fantastic Trip Movie

Overall: The name says it all in this case. You really do feel like you should be tripping over some drug to find it enjoyable. With it's pretty bad looks and terrible singing I recommend passing this one up for sure.

Just one of the glasses girls in Megane na Kanojo

January 28

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Parallel Works

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Superman Legend OVA

Overall: Random last minute pick for my Snack of the Week.

Megane na Kanojo OVA

Overall: Each episode follows a girl who wears glasses. It's short and sweet. It definitely could do with more stories as these ones were fun.

Yuri Seijin Naoko-san OVA

Overall: Meet an alien girl who is obsessed with human little girls. Yup this one is for the yuri loving lolicons out there.

Aki Sora: Yume no Naka OVA

Overall: Watch this as a soft core hentai only. Do not expect a mind blowing plot.

Crimson Wolf OVA

Overall: This ova ended up being really awesome. I mean it wasn't anything special but it certainly did what it set out to do. The poor girl that was in this almost never wore any clothing. She was either in the shower being attacked or clothing was being ripped off. Not to mention the numerous times she wore just a man's shirt. Hell she was even naked in flashbacks!

Black Lagoon OVA episode 3

Overall: The action certainly was more pleasing from the lack of it in episode 2. My Chang got pretty sassy with Rock over the phone which I found to be most amusing. The head maid that the little master has been trying to find shows an interesting side that he just isn't ready to deal with. I honestly was a little shocked by her actions too.

Gintama episodes 91-94

Off to the God world for the first time

Our little Gods best friends

Cat Fight Club!








January 29

Kamichu episodes 6-16

Overall: With the super slow start I complained about earlier in the month I was rewarded when episode 8 came around. It revolved around a cat world fight club parody. It was the most interesting cute thing I had seen in quite some time. Especially since the leader cat was appropriately called Tyler. From that episode onward the time flew by and before I knew it, it was over. I was rewarded with a great ending that I really loved and won me over completely for the show. Someday I'll have to give it a proper blog post but for now this will do. I see why it is on digitalboy's top 100 list and I approve ^_^

Shin Koihime Musou OVA and Live

Overall: Yet another fun filled ova enters this franchise. It wasn't anything special but it was still fun. What was really odd was the Live. It was some of the girls singing tracks from the anime in a concert setting. Quite bizarre honestly.

Abunai Sisters episodes 1-2 ongoing? OVA

Overall: w...t....f...

Bungaku Shoujo Memoire OVA

Overall: After watching the movie with some skepticism on my part and ended up enjoying it I certainly looked forward to this ova. Each episode can be watched as a stand alone but none really left an impression on me except for the 2nd one. It was really depressing and heavy on the drama.

Prefectural Earth Defense Force OVA

Overall: This is a delightful parody anime where people get turned into cyborgs and they must fight the evil Telegraph Pole Society. With a description like that what's not to like!

Riki punches hard

So hard that...

...He's jaw "fell" off!









January 30

Riki-Oh OVA

Overall: I first watched the live action movie with my boyfriend several years ago. It was bad but so bad in the way that it was great entertainment. I expected pretty much the same from the ova and that's what I got. I really wish that ova 2 was available somewhere.

Mirai Nikki OVA

Overall: This seems like a Death Note but slightly less serious as it has turned into a game of sorts among kids. If it ever turns into a series it could be interesting but I won't have high hopes for it as this ova was pretty average.

Prism Mergical: Prism Generations OVA

Overall: Well... The only thing I can say about this magical girl show is that it was only 15 minutes of my life... I did enjoy seeing a magical boy though.

Quiz Magic Academy OVA 2

Overall: I never actually thought a second ova would come out of this considering that it's first one was rather mediocre. Sadly the mediocrity didn't leave and I was still left wondering why it was made. Not a terrible watch by any means though. Think of it along the lines of Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu.

Tall and short! Cute ^_^

Hiyokoi OVA

Overall: Is an ova about a really shy short girl that gets seated beside a really tall loud boy. It's short and rather cute. I'd watch the series of this if they ever made one. It could rival Toradora in my opinion.

Gintama episodes 95-99

Overall: The Shinsengumi arc is super duper awesome. It rivals the more serious Naruto and Bleach ones for sure!

Wild 7 OVA

Overall: This was my pick for the Chii & Kira Anime Watching Club. I haven't finished my review of it yet but lets just say it's completely opposite of what Kira thought about it. Check out her review while you wait for mine!

Koi Suru Boukun OVA

Overall: I hated this yaoi ova with a passion. It takes a lot for me to hate on a yaoi generally but this one was just downright bad. I'll take less rape in my boy love shows thank you very much. This show should probably go on my does not want list. >.<

Dragon's Heaven sure is ugly...

January 31

Gintama episodes 100-105

Licca-chan Fushigi na Mahou no Ring OVA

Dragon's Heaven OVA

Overall: Words can't really describe how this ova started off. It was basically a real mecha model just being shown off. Very strange. Once the real ova starts you are graced with what I think is one of the worst looking ova's ever. From what I've seen only California Crisis can rival it's shitty looks. Then again both are pretty shitty story wise too...

Saishuu Shiken Kujira Progressive OVA

Overall: This is actually a 12 episode 5 minute series to begin with. Generally I don't watch the ova's of these kind of shows before actually viewing the show but for some reason I viewed this. It isn't a bad tale of magic sick girl meets a boy and tries to have a normal life for once but it's not something I'm going to remember next year.

Tuesday Tally Week 1 Starto! January 1-10

So honestly upon thinking about this project more I REALLY should have started it when I started my blog. It would have been amazing to been able to have seen my stats from last year but oh well. I can do it for this year though so starting fresh is best here! I started off my year in a house somewhere in the middle of Vermont nothingness. I had a great time and oddly was able to watch 30+ episodes of anime while surrounded by rambunctious friends.

<3

^__^








January 1-3

Kuragehime ep 11 END

Overall: It was rather unfulfilling first episode of the year but I still love this series to bits even if the last episode was lackluster. I really hope we see another season of this show someday because I think it was brilliant and really funny. We need some darn closure too! Don't make me go read the darn manga, but oh wait... That's not even finished either!!! It all makes sense now!

Joon-sang and Yu-jin as teenagers

Winter Sonata ALL

Overall: If you love your drama to keep coming over and over again before you can take a deep breath this show is for you. It's a lovely Korean made anime that is beautiful to look at and it'll make you fall in love with all characters. Starts off with the character as children and they GROW up! I love anime that do this so I was taken with Winter Sonata in a heartbeat. 8/10

Heroic Age episodes 1-6

Overall: Great start to this series honestly. I've been craving a great space opera anime for quite sometime now and this certainly wet my lips.

Arakawa episodes 12-13

Overall: Very interesting and fun way to end the series. I'm still not sure what's up with it but I hope we'll see more someday. I love everyone that lives under that bridge!

😀

January 4

Gintama episodes 1-17 (re-watch)

Overall: It's good to finally get around to this wonderful series. I'm starting from scratch again because I'm watching it with my boyfriend and it'll be more fun that way. He's loving it so far and I'm getting more out of it funny wise a second time around for sure.

Heroic Age ep 7-18

Rio: Rainbow Gate episode 1 was watched as well but I'll talk about that more in a Winter Season Start Review post coming up soon.

Stay strong my trannies!

XD










January 5

Gintama episodes 18-28 (re-watch)

Overall: This batch holds some of my most favourite episodes. The tranny episodes were just awesome and the epic meat battle will never get old no matter how many times I watch it.

Kimi ni Todoke episode 00

Overall: Did we really need this kind of episode?

Starry Sky episode 2

I love me some space ships

<3








Heroic Age episodes 19-26 END

Overall: I'm honestly still putting my thoughts together on this one. I'll definitely need a re-watch of it at some point too. I really, really loved it but it's hard to explain why. It has a lot to do with it being a Sci-Fi SPACE show with kick ass "mecha" like creatures. I enjoyed the music and animation a lot and the OP and ED were great. All the characters were liked except for the twins... I don't understand too much why they had to be the comic relief but there they were! Great show and I highly recommend! 9/10

January 6

Gintama episodes 29-36 (re-watch)

Naruto Special

Overall: It was a boring fight. I did enjoy that it was 6 minutes or whatever compared to the 10+ episodes it took in the actual series.

Sweet sweet pew pew power

Gundam 00 Movie Trailblazer Crap

Overall: Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhg.... Was a great way to start off my "Snack of the Week" project though!

January 7

Gintama episodes 37-43 (re-watch)

>.<

Starry Sky episode 3

Overall: This show is fucking SO ugly.

Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls Special 2

Overall: Kissing guide! lol...

Infinite Stratos, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Yumekui Merry, Gosick episode 1 was watched for all but once again more details will be included in the Winter Season Start Review post coming up soon.

;___;

January 8

Gundam Seed episodes 16-19

Overall: It certainly was an emotional few episodes. I'm not liking this sand arc too much but I'm told that it's not all that bad so here's to hoping! Episode 19 at the very end made me a little sad for Sai honestly because everything has just gone to shit for the poor guy. *shakes her fist at Flay*

Gintama episodes 44-51 (re-watch)

Overall: Episode 50 has been one of the best episodes yet. It has about a million different parodies and references in it which was highly amusing. This show just rocks so hard!

Attraction Studio 4°C Short

Overall: This is all about not smoking. As weird as it is, it is also very interesting. Especially since you can actually interact with the show but only 4 times and it just involves clicking where they tell you to and wiggling the mouse back and forth. I highly suggest you check it out if you are a fan of Studio 4°C.

Cardfight!! Vanguard, Freezing, Oniichan Crap, Beelzebub episode 1 was watched for all but once again more details will be included in the Winter Season Start Review post coming up soon.

Brother *click to read*

Finished the Manga Brother

Overall: I didn't like how they kept telling the situation at the beginning of every fucking chapter. That was super annoying because it was rather short being only 2 volumes. I thought that the younger brother looking older than the real older one was just weird. 18-23 years old were the siblings which was a little odd at times. The sex was pretty darn hot though! Only check it out if you aren't afraid of yummy man sex! XD

Oh Vash!

January 9

Gintama episodes 52-54 (re-watch)

Trigun: Badlands Rumble Movie

Overall: Very much <3 I'll gush about it more for this weeks Snack.

January 10

Gintama episodes 55-61

Dragon Crisis, Kore wa Zombie desu ka, Wolverine, Mitsudomoe episode 1 was watched for all but once again more details will be included in the Winter Season Start Review post coming up soon.

Level E episode 1

Overall: I picked a GREAT anime to episodically blog about this winter season.

On the Fourth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,
Four Quirky One Shots,
Three Big Contenders,
Two Amazing Rivals,
and Char Aznable on a Horse

Children Cant Choose Their Parents

Female Fridge No. 1

Yamamoto Mimikaki-Ten

Holy Night (Shintaro KAGO)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year I started actually reading manga on-line. But I generally limit myself to really short ones known as One Shots. These are one off random stories about anything you can possibly think of. Here's some of the weirder ones I've read throughout this year and easily became favourites due to their quirkiness.

Children Can't Choose Their Parents - You will never look at a chicken the same ever again!

Female Fridge No. 1 - Imagine spying on your crush in one of the strangest ways possible.

Yamamoto Mimikaki-Ten AKA Yamamoto Ear Cleaning Shop - Probably my favourite of the bunch because well... I will admit that I do have a ear cleaning obsession. If you look deeper into it, it's also a tale of growing up.

Holy Night (Shintaro KAGO) - Santa is one messed up dude! This one is NSFW!

I can't wait to read more weird stuff! I'm possibly going to be doing a manga project in the upcoming year.
