Having seen both, the anime of Death Note streamlines the plot and cuts out most of the padding that's in the manga, and it also does kind of a stylish adaptation of what I found to be boring artwork. The main thing is that the latter parts had much better pacing than the manga.MangaRocks! (post: 1495348) wrote:
And as for Death Note, I actually don't understand Hat's opinion about that, either. (Though, to be clear, I mean no offense to Hat at all-- his opinion is certainly just as valid as mine, of course! I just sincerely don't understand it. ) I mean, the first 24 ep.'s of the series were about as perfect an adaptation as possible-- but from ep. 25 on, it was definitely not as good as the manga (more of my thoughts on that here).
My real reason for why I like the Death Note anime better than the manga(yet dislike both) is because I found the second half to be much better paced, so that would explain why you probably don't get what I'm talking about. That, or I don't know what I'm talking about. Either way.Warrior 4 Jesus (post: 1495321) wrote:Really, Mr. Hat'n'Clogs? Death Note is better as an anime than a manga? I've only read a bit of the manga but I thought the story didn't work so well as an anime because it really was just a long line of talking heads. Personally they really didn't explore the premise enough for my liking.

Granted, I thought the anime was pretty weird to begin with, but cute and also very deep and creative. I heard the manga's really just blah, and if memory serves me right, I've heard she dances with fish and giant teddy bears? I haven't read it, but after reading so many unfavorable reviews, I have no desire to do so.
Yep! Precisely why I chose the wording I did.Nate (post: 1495391) wrote:The source material is usually better? I suppose. There are cases where something was an anime first and then got turned into a manga ... and I think the anime is vastly superior.
Ah!

For Princess Tutu, the manga came after. They attempted to fit 30+ episodes of content in 2 volumes. It is one of the most terrible things I've ever read. I applaud you for not reading it.whereas Princess Tutu and Full Moon O Sagashite changed their stories (I've never read the manga for Princess Tutu, but I heard it's really, really different, so I don't really want to. I read Full Moon because I wanted to see how they tweaked the anime from the manga. They did quite a bit)

I have no idea how you got those three series in the wrong category.

I much prefer a more interesting plot, which the Sailor Moon manga completely destroys the anime without effort. Plot points were completely ignored or dropped in the anime (Beryl destroying the Moon Kingdom out of jealousy of Endymion's love for Serenity, the Dark Kingdom generals being Endymion's servants, Hotaru being a cyborg, Mamoru's connection to Helios and Elysion, the cats becoming human, not to mention all the extra senshi that were nowhere to be seen in the anime such as Sailor Phobos and Deimos, Sailor Phi, Sailor Chi, Sailor Lethe, Sailor Mnemosyne, the Asteroid Senshi, Sailor Heavy Metal Papillion, etc.).
MKR actually was fine either way, though I prefer the manga 'cuz less filler. And CCS I just don't care for the girl that was added for no reason in the anime (Li's cousin, whatever her name was) and the artwork in the manga is just so much more beautiful.
