I was talking with a friend at a coffee shop talking about anime and stuff. We debate anime and manga and more so which is better. Of course, in Japan, the manga is long time out before the anime ever reaches air.
However here in North Amercia, we see the anime most times before the manga. (Or the manga itself is hacked by translation.) I wonder how we would view anime if we had the manga first.
I've tried to get some manga of some shows, I'm following where it's beyond the anime and see how that affects my viewing of the anime.
I just wonder if others have done the same and what effect did knowing what happens in manga effects how you view the anime?
