Filler and I hated the anime Stars compared to the Manga... It's not the same plot line altogether.

totally it had more action and plus the voices and musci added a more dramatic theme which made it more exiting

Kristen If you like shoujo manga, you should take a look at Shoujo Manga Book Club! It's a group where you can discuss your favorite manga, meet new people, vote in tournaments, play games and more!


message 1: by Mary (new)

Mary I have not read every manga in this list but I would have to disagree with this list. I thought both the manga and anime were both great for three of the series I have read (Ouran, Sailor Moon, Soul Eater). I don't think either one is better than the other.
Normally for me books are better than the movie but I can easily say when it comes to manga and anime I can't say that I prefer one over the other.
