Is reading manga and watching anime different?



The graphic images with text you read is called “manga” if it’s from Japan.
The animated shows that you watch are called “anime” (if they’re from Japan, or in the style of Japanese anime).
There are also light novels with some illustrations which you read.
And there are games and visual novels, which you play.
All of those can be adapted to anime.
Very rarely an anime is written from scratch, as an original. And yes, reading and watching are inherently different, even if the story is the same.
The most apparent difference is that manga can show a lot more detail in the art — but it’s largely in black-and-white.
Manga is also often edgier, more risqué than anime, bloodier, with more nudity, and more sex (without being explicitly hentai).
Manga is directed at people of much more diverse demographics than anime, and there are entire manga magazines for people with certain tastes which never get an anime, or only a very short OVA at best, because the projected audience to justify the cost is just not there. Anime is sometimes very faithful to its source material.
And sometimes not so.
That might be a directorial decision because some things don’t work as well in a visually flowing medium as they do in a static one.
Or the budget doesn’t allow to tell the story at the same pace as in the manga.
Or the manga has organically grown over a long time, meandering kind of aimlessly in parts, and the anime has the chance to tighten the story.
Or it might happen that the anime condenses a lot of chapters of a manga into one “cour” (a 3-month unit of television programming), and during its second cour might catch up with the manga, and is now out of source material.
Then the anime producers diverge from the manga, by writing so-called “filler” episodes, side-stepping the main story by inventing a side story, or padding the main story with much extraneous detail, or by continuing the main story in a direction the mangaka doesn’t necessarily want to follow when they in turn catch up.
You’d think they coordinate that, but alas not always. Then you have anime movies, which retell the story of a manga or novel in a different, shorter, more cinematic format, which necessarily also changes the way the story is presented.
It is really interesting if a franchise is super successful, and you get a manga, a TV series, a reboot of the TV series 10 years later, several audio drama CDs, a game, two movies, an OVA, and some light novels, all dealing with the same characters and the same universe, but all presenting it somewhat differently.
