    Can you read and watch? (simplistic way to put the question)

    To explain my question, I'll present my personal experience:

    I, when I read a manga, have somewhat of a problem watching the anime, even if I really liked it. And vice versa, when I finished watching Chobits, I was wondering wether I should buy the mangas.

    I guess i might be because I then already know the story, but it might just be part of it.

    What is your status when it comes to this? Do you watch both? Or not? Or maybe?

    I am really interested to know.

    Yeah I have the same thing, I think it's because the storyline in each one will be the same, but there will always be bits that are differant from the other or not even mentioned in the other one. But I still read and watch.

    Typically I like to read the manga and watch the anime. I find it interesting being able to notice some of the differences between the two. For example, the manga for Steel Angel Kurumi has quite a few differences from the anime.

    However, whichever I happened across first is usually the one I end up liking more, though there are exceptions. Case in point is one you mentioned. I read the manga for Chobits first, then I watched the anime. I personally liked the manga more, but that is probably because I was exposed to it first. It's hard to say since you can't possibly be exposed to both at the same time.

    If you cannot answer someones argument, all is not lost; you can still call them vile names.

    I usually have no problem at all if I've seen the anime first, a manga usually delves a lot deeper than it's animated counterpart.
    Going from manga to anime can sometimes be a (small) letdown but even then it doesn't bother me that much.

    I actually enjoy watching an anime and then reading the manga. It shows me the little (and sometimes quite big) differences between storylines and gives me a better overall view on what actually went on. Take Saber Marionette J for example.....

    I can do both. I mean I never get confused or lost on which manga/anime is which anime/manga.
