    Re: anime or manga? whats the difrence?

    Depends on personal preference. Some people like anime more than manga and some like manga more than the anime. To make this as simple as possible I added the difinitions of the two words from Wikipedia.

    Manga:
    Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia
    Manga (漫画, Manga?) is the Japanese word for comics and print cartoons. Outside of Japan, it usually refers specifically to Japanese comics. As of 2006, manga represents a multi-billion dollar global market.[1] Manga developed from a mixture of ukiyo-e and foreign styles of drawing, and took its current form shortly after World War II. It comes mainly in black and white, except for the covers and sometimes the first few pages; in some Animanga all the pages are colored. Popular manga are often adapted into anime (Japanese for animation) once a market interest has been established. (Manga is sometimes mistakenly called "anime" by those not familiar with the term.) Adapted stories are often modified to appeal to a more mainstream market. Although not as common, original anime is sometimes adapted into manga (such as the Gundam franchise, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop and Tenchi Muyo).

    Anime:

Outside Japan, the term most popularly refers to animation originating in Japan. To the West, not all animation is considered anime; and anime is considered subset of animation.

    While some anime is hand drawn, computer assisted animation techniques have become quite common in recent years. Like any entertainment medium, the story lines represent most major genres of fiction. Anime is broadcast on television, distributed on media such as DVD and VHS, and included in computer and video games. Additionally, some are produced as full length motion pictures. Anime often draws influence from Japanese manga and light novels. Some anime storylines have been adapted into live action films and television series.

    In short anime and mangas are different. One is moving animation and the other is printed comics. But they are related. Sometimes mangas are turned into anime and vice versa. That depends on the popularity of the series.

    Question answered.
    But solking, why do you use the anime plural anime and not the manga plural manga?

    1 anime, 2 anime.
    1 manga, 2 manga.
