    Granted, I was told about Bleach sometime during the summer, but at that time, I was still getting up to date with Naruto. I'm not too far in the manga, yet I don't watch the subbed episodes.

    Would anyone here say it's better to just continue reading the manga by itself or watch the episodes as well? I tend to go with reading only because if I watched the sub only, I wouldn't know where to pick up in the manga, though there are things better explained, to some extent, in the anime.

    Anyone have a personal preference or which is better? Either way, I'm still reading it, but does anyone think I should watch the sub as well?

    I'd keep reading, but I'd watch it too. Even when it gets to the Bountou filler arc, it's really well done and very fun to watch.

    So both is good. :)

    For me, the manga wins when it comes to humor. But the anime mostly wins when it comes to the action. The only part in the anime I had a problem with was the Grand Fisher battle. I thought it was a hell of alot better in the manga.

    I would say manga since imo the fights in the manga are much better than the fights in the anime. But it's really what you prefer if u would rather like to see than read then anime is right for u but if u like it vice versa then reading is the best option

    I'd say watch the anime until you get to the filler, at which point you can read the manga or just watch the filler and wait for new episodes. Bleach is really action-oriented, and I really find that to be done better in anime, when the characters can actually move.

    I'd say read and watch. The anime is really good, even the fillers are fun to watch for the most part.

    Both. In term of storyline speed rate, Bleach has more to offer than Naruto(so many things happened in a little time, while Naruto....they are at the beginning season two).

    If you are looking for speed, fast-action fights....watch the anime.

    But if you are looking for slow, mediocre story that makes you always read slowly, think and chew them, recalling back what other characters had said of the same thing.....then reading the manga is better. They are all inter-related.....so you have to like read/analyse why, what, how each character would feel....and the subtle hints KT is trying to say....just not only the 'per se' stuffs. Anime....they just lost it's main meaning.

    Do both then, if you are all of the above. But I rather that you watch the anime first, and then read the few manga chapters where the anime episode supposed to show....to study the difference between manga and anime.

    contrary to most mangas I like watching bleach more than reading.

    maybe because of the speed.

    I really love the bleach music, but I like reading it more for some reason. It is a really tough decison to stick with though, because for themes and stuff, I usually like using the anime more.

    It's very hard decision you know...
    I always like reading more. I really have no idea why...
    But Bleach anime is great even if it is Bountou Filler Arc.

    I prefer to read the manga than watch the anime. I haven't watched much of the anime to say the truth :sweatdrop.

    But both are good :amuse.

    I enjoy the manga more, but I do like the anime, even with the filler. Both are equally addicting to me. :amuse

    Read the manga, but dont just ignore the anime. Each one has its own share of good and bad. If you are only going to go with one, then take the manga since it is the base cannon. That way, you wont be exposed to filler, no matter how hight quality, and not know the 'truth' of the cannon manga.

    If you have the time, just keep reading. The anime doesn't really give you anything that the manga doesn't (no, the filler arc really isn't), unless you happen to be big on animation. I prefer reading personally.

    You should both read the manga and watch the anime. Because the anime may have some hints of what is to come after the fillers end.

    I like the manga. Important details are always left out of anime. I hate the constant animation quality discussions that come with the anime as well.

    I prefer the manga because of the art. IMO, it's 10 times better.

    I really like the anime better because I enjoy the action sequences in motion and I like the music.
