    Or do you appreciate both no matter what?

    I read manga and watch anime. I like them both.

    But it bothers me a little bit when people confuse them.

    Nah, I meant like story differences. Like the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime and the manga.

    I like them both, even if there are major or minor differences. Not all anime goes directly with the manga or vice versa because not every detail is going to be there.

    Oh, you confused me a bit.

    Well, some anime stick to the manga exactly (excluding fillers), such as Fairy Tail, and Magi.

    And some anime, such as Akame ga Kiru and Gokukoku no Brynhildr, drifted away from the manga a bit.
    Akame ga Kiru was an awesome anime, but they changed and left out so many things.
    Brynhildr was a good anime, I greatly enjoyed it. The only thing that bothered me was the fact that they completely ignored many chapters. These chapters were inbetween the beginning and end of the anime, and it had a character that I really liked in it. The character was nonexistent in the anime. The anime was only 11-13 episodes, but still.

    So for me, it depends on what is changed, and who it involves.

    I like them both. I just don't appreciate it when people mistake it for anime or criticize you for reading "Chinese stuff" and you have to explain to them that it's from Japan and not China, then explain the difference between Japan and China. But that's only with really shallow people who are really shallow.

    Fairy Tail DOES NOT stick to the manga that much. The manga is much more different, and I think the manga is way ahead in arcs than the Series 2 anime. The anime is doing it's own thing, the manga is doing it's own thing. Sometimes the manga is more vulgar and different than animes, the animes have the same conception but they don't go as far as the mangas for some reason.

    Overall, I prefer manga, because that way you can carry it around with you.
    But THEN there are those people who insist on being like "Oh, you read those backwards books?" and the people who are fascinated by all the gore in your "reverse comic book" and it can get awkward sometimes.

    I said not including fillers.
    From what the anime has taken from the manga, they've followed it pretty much exactly. The 2014 series stinks in my opinion.

    Also, you don't add an "s" to the end of anime to make it plural. It's just anime.
