One piece manga or anime?
Which do you prefer and why?
Both but mainly the manga. Reason being the pacing and as of recent years inconsistency in capturing the comedy (and the general portrayal of the story). I rarely laugh when watching the anime, unlike when i read the manga. Again the pacing is the main factor that limits everything. It affects even the voice acting because lines need to be stretched out and the delivery doesnt have as much impact as it used to. In any case, i've found my own way of consuming both media, like watching or making clips, screenshotting and generally discussing the different aspects of production and adaptation. Bottom line is, learn how to consume one piece the way it fits you. Sounds generic but i think its very important. Dont let others tell to you watch this or dont read that. Limiting yourself to only the manga or the anime is impractical and stressfull. Whatever is available check it out.
