I was just curious because me personally, if i want to get into a series and it has both an anime and a manga, i usually prefer to read the manga cause then if i like the manga id like to see it in motion and what not. When i watch an anime first i kind of feel like ive already experienced enough to where the manga feels boring in comparison (though there are exceptions if the manga is considerably better or if theres enough differences to make it feel like a whole new experience). So in other words, if I've seen the anime, chances are i wont read the manga either at all or I'll wait a verrrrrry long time down the road like i did with kuragehime.

So i was wondering which you guys prefer to experience first?

I say anime first because most people get exposed to the anime first and then check out the manga. Plus when its popularized you almost always refer to the anime more than the manga.

I like to watch the anime first because it's just more efficient for me. Then if I really like the anime, I'll start reading the manga

With the whole efficiency thing:
Its more efficient to read the manga. Its takes less time and you get more of the story compared to the anime.
I mean if you can read fast, you can get a whole series done in at least half the time it takes to finish the anime

Yeah, I know. It's just in general, it's easier to do anime for me. I'm visually impaired so reading isn't exactly easy and physical books like manga I can't just pull out and read whenever. So I'd rather waste time watching the whole anime series of something than deal with the manga

Usually Manga for me since it was what the author originally wanted the store to be. I tend to find that anime's usually add in extra stuff as filler or will just scrape the story all together and make something up that usually ends up being really bad.

I prefer reading manga first then anime, bc I can get a lot more story out of the manga. Plus, most anime based on manga is incomplete and has a "go read the manga" ending. I only watch anime based on manga if it's either complete or I've already read the manga.

I usually check out anime adaptations first because they're easier for me to access than manga, and I can get a "feel" for a series and judge its quality before jumping to the manga. If I like an anime adaptation, I'm more likely to read the manga and check out potential plot differences and expansions. Of course, occasionally I watch bad anime adaptations and I end up researching whether or not the manga's any better according to fans (and I end up thinking about reading the superior manga anyway.)

I tend to avoid seeing the same story twice, so most commonly I'll wait for the anime because it gives me a full experience with colour, movement and audio. Then, if the story really grabs me I'll continue the manga where the anime left off. I just don't have the patience to see the same thing more than once. :'D

Until a few years ago I preferred watching the anime first, for the same reason as D!zzyZebra (because it gave me a more "full" experience), and because sometimes I thought the art (or the story, or both) in the original manga was bad. Though maybe that was just me. Sometimes I would read the manga just for the sake of seeing the "manga" version of chapters/scenes I really liked in the anime, and if I couldn't find them (or if they were very different from the anime) I got disappointed.

Now I will usually read the manga first (if the anime is based on one), for the same reason as Oliver's Mom (I can get a lot more out of the story). I will only check out the anime if the other fans say it's worth it (as good as the manga or better). Idk, I can be really picky about some things and I don't like to be disappointed...
