It’s been a very long time since I did one of these personal posts, I’d like to talk a little about how those who watch both the anime and read the manga have any conflicting feelings when it comes to rewatching or rereading the exact same moment in it’s anime glory.
Before I begin, I’d like to shed some light on why I’m writing this post. I am getting really frustrated and tired of reading and watching the same exact thing, the examples I’ll be using are those of Naruto and Fairy Tail. Both of these anime’s and their manga’s are covered by me every week. As soon as they come out, I show what I think about them as well as briefly narrate what happens in them.
Okay so, imagine yourself reading the Naruto manga series (yes, the manga series has unfortunately ended) until you’re at the latest chapter. Then we have the anime, the animators bring the manga to life giving the characters a personality, movement and a voice.
It’s all jolly up until the moment you know what’s going to happen next, and until that point you keep waiting for the anime to progress further. The current Naruto Shippuden episodes have just sucked, dragging and prolonging everything from Naruto’s Talk No Jutsu to repeating Obito’s life over and over again.
The worse part is that after already writing and narrating the same exact parts of the manga in a post, you’d have to narrate them once more for the anime post. Lately, I’ve been trying to stick with the main points when it comes to writing the anime, so I try not to spend a lot of time on them.
I’m not necessarily saying that I hate Naruto and Fairy Tail anime, just gotten a lot tired seeing the same thing over and over again. Although currently Fairy Tail have a different filler arc, which in it self has made me hate fillers, plus Lucy is seriously pissing me off. Something about her gets on my nerves, could it be the fact that she is totally useless and somehow everyone in Fairy Tail has to pay for her stupidity?
In comparison, manga is actually great. It’s always awesome to read them, even if I only currently read Bleach and Fairy Tail, (truly unhappy to see Naruto go). There is always something new going on, and with it being a direct connection with the author, it’s nice to see the talent the mangaka’s hold.
A little bit of rant since I’m finding some of these repetitive anime’s annoying as hell. The rest on my watch list are superb and have no complaints about. Nevertheless, what are your opinions on those that watch both the manga and read the anime. Just recapping the same thing in its animated form.
