Is Reading Manga Faster Than Watching Anime

The Japanese entertainment industry is in good shape in the 21st century, with manga, anime, light novels, and Japanese video games enjoying substantial success all across the board. There are many reasons to dive into the world of both manga and anime, but after a point, fans might decide that they like manga better than anime, or vice versa. When it comes to anime versus manga, there is no definitive answer, especially since different fans have various interests, tastes, and preferences. Still, many fans like manga better than anime, and they have a handful of solid reasons to feel this way. Anime has a lot to offer, but collecting and reading manga is simply better in many ways. If someone believes that reading manga is better than watching anime, their reasoning will be a combination of the best perks of manga and the worst aspects of anime, or a combination thereof. For example, while some anime series manage to tell the complete story of the original manga, most don't. Countless fine manga series only get as 12-episode or 24-episode anime, and that's not enough to tell the whole story. However, the source manga will certainly tell the entire story unless it gets abruptly canceled, and overall, this is a major reason to prefer manga of anime.

Many modern anime series have excellent animation techniques, such as the popular Attack on Titan and Vinland Saga. Fortunately, manga is immune to this problem. Since it's all still images, there's no risk of awkward or cheap animation, and readers can imagine the action with as high a framerate as they choose. When Guts swings his legendary sword in the Berserk anime, the motion will always be perfectly smooth in readers' minds. Anime streaming platforms such as Crunchyroll and Funimation are excellent sources of anime, along with Netflix and Hulu. Still, some series are never streamed because certain platforms simply don't have the rights to them. Some series, such as Wotakoi and Grand Blue Dreaming, are barely streamed anywhere at all in the West. This can be a real headache for some anime fans, especially if they cannot or don't want to buy the Blu-Ray DVDs to dodge that issue. Manga, by contrast, never has problems with this, and any series can be printed and stocked on bookstore shelves just fine. In general, people read words much faster than they can speak, which means an anime show or TV show will deliver its content more slowly than any comic book, novel, or manga volume. A sentence that can be read in two seconds might take eight or more to speak aloud in anime. Manga/anime fans who are pressed for time can enjoy a story much quicker in manga form than anime form for this very reason, and that makes it much faster to read all of One Piece's manga than watch the entire anime.

Welcome to a new Look Of Manga

A particular downside to being an anime fans is the fact that many solid manga series never got an anime at all, so an anime-only fan is locked out of these stories entirely. Some anime fans won't mind, but others will realize just how much they're missing out on. Manga fans, by contrast, can enjoy a much wider variety of series than anime-only fans, and it's rare for an anime to not have a source manga or light novel. Overall, anime-only fans make a much bigger sacrifice than manga readers do. Granted, some manga series do have fairly simple art that is easy to adapt into a lovely anime series, and a few manga series are actually improved this way. But the reverse is more common, and that works in any manga fan's favor. Some art simply cannot be animated. Since manga panels don't move, it's easy to draw incredibly detailed art, and this is especially true for the famously well-drawn Berserk by Kentaro Miura. Not even today, much less in 1997, could any animation studio truly replicate what is found in Berserk's pages. Not everyone has the budget or the room at home to collect dozens or hundreds of manga volumes, but it is a wonderful hobby to have for those who do. Some people love to collect physical items, and manga fans can buy a few bookshelves and stock them up with every volume of their favorite series. Collectors can find great joy in their collection and proudly show off all their neatly-organized manga volumes for their friends to check out.

39;s also fairly easy to watch anime anywhere, but manga is even more flexible.

Having so many physical items in one place is the best route to take for those collectors, a satisfaction that anime cannot provide. Even if an anime series doesn't stop with a single 12-episode season, manga fans will still have the advantage over anime-only fans. In many cases, such as with Attack on Titan and One-Punch Man, the anime's next season may take two or more years to come out. That's quite a wait. Fans waited for years for Attack on Titan's anime to resume, but manga fans rarely experience issues like these. Aside from hiatus-prone series like D.Gray-Man, manga series tend to release their material steadily and reliably, so there are no huge, awkward gaps to worry about. Anime fans can enjoy their hobby for cheap, such as paying pocket change for a Netflix or Crunchyroll subscription and watching whatever anime they can find on their platform of choice. That's great. But manga fans can enjoy their hobby for absolutely no cost at all. Public libraries are an excellent resource for not just ordinary books, but also trade paperback comic collections and manga volumes alike. Anyone with a library card can visit their nearest public library and check out some free manga series at their leisure. Thanks to smartphones and tablets, it's also fairly easy to watch anime anywhere, but manga is even more flexible. Watching anime in public calls for earphones, a full battery, and a decent WiFi signal, which can be awkward at times. Watching anime on long airplane flights or at the DMV isn't always going to work out. Books are extremely convenient for entertainment on the go since they don't require an Internet connection, battery power, cables, or earphones. This applies to manga too, so a fan can bring a few volumes with them on a lengthy flight or car ride. Plus, it's perfectly quiet, which is helpful in many settings. Manga is very friendly to travel and the public.

Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings.

Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.

Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back.

She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.

39;s birthday was near and planned to celebrate it.

When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.

When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.

That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.
