usually nomatter what... manga is better than anime and drama in terms of...

1 - story
2 - origin
3 - fillerless
4 - alterless
5 - getting to point
6 - requires less budget
7 - release progress


anime is just for it to be promoted in a bigger media... and some people just likes to watch it animated especially the kids... with music, filmated, voices, action, and etc...

drama or movie adapted are lame... actors may be able to adapt marvel or DC stories, but animes/manga... is abit going overboard... people like manga/anime in the first place due to the art and funny impressions only drawings can express... but there are few acceptions such as silent hill, though its a japanese game.....

Only one I checked all media forms is Nodame Cantabile. They are all good laugh, well, you can call me just a Nodame fan. Had watched Honey and Clover anime, it's good, read some of the manga, but there isn't much scanlated around since it has been licensed, and hadn't watched the drama though.

For Antique Bakery, I guess you can say that the anime would be better. Since the plot is exactly the same as the manga. In the anime, they have colour and sound effects and such. So, yeah. Anime.

As for Nodame Cantabile, I've only watched the anime and the drama. The anime is better. And I heard from others that the manga is great too. biggrin

I can only compare blood+.
The anime was quite lame, although Haji was cute, saya cried to much, and they had too many meaningless dialogues between the brothers-sister.
Those stupid "meaning of life, blah blah blah nonsense".
So I wouldn't recommend~
I've read 2 volumes of the manga, maybe I'll read some more of it.
Anyways, the manga seemed to be quicker paced, and overall better.
Although things were different in the anime.

for Nodame: drama - you get to listen the music and see ppl perform
Honey and Clover: I only watch the drama. I think it's the best because there are some paintings that you can only appreciate when you look at the real one - the colour, etc
Skip Beat: manga - more comical and funny
Sugar2 Rune: anime

I highly recommend the Nodame Cantabile drama. I loved it. watched it twice, in fact. All the episodes, plus the specials, have been subbed by SARS, so there's no wait to get them (except to download). Being able to hear/see the music is incredible. I have to admit, though, that I didn't read the manga, so I can't comment on how well the drama followed the story.

Antique Bakery also has a drama, which I found incredibly boring, and didn't finish.

Thank you very much for the help! biggrin

So... to sum up the average...:

Blood+, manga.
Antique Bakery, anime.
Skip Beat, ...manga? (I'm a bit more hesitant about this one because of the 1 chapter I've read, no offense, I found the art quite... painful whilst the anime looked a bit more okay?)

Sorry, the rest I'm still a bit unsure... confused

For Honey and Clover, the anime is very faithful to the manga, apart from in the last episode (Season 2 last episode). I would recommend that you watch the anime, because you get the extra of sound and colour ^^. The songs are pretty nice, and they really help get you into the story. I haven't watched the drama, but I heard that they had to alter parts of the story because they can't be acted out in a real drama.

For Nodame Cantabile, hmm... maybe the drama.
I'd usually recommend the original version (which is the manga, in this case), but some things are just lost in translation, and imo you can get to savour the story better with the help of sound and voices in the drama. Umm... if you read Japanese, go with the original version (manga).

Blood+ ... this is anime made into manga (not the other way round.) I've only read a few chapters of the manga, but I can see that the story is different. I would say go with the original version (anime).

For Princess Tutu, I highly recommend the anime. eyes

I haven't read the manga, but from looking at it in a store, it seems to be a pretty ordinary "magical girl" story. The anime is most definitely not, and the music is wonderful. biggrin

Don't be ignorant and answer with a generic response that isn't appropriate, especially considering that Nodame was included in the OP's group of works to be considered. Which possesses no filler (except for long interludes of music which is, in many opinions, what makes it better.)

Also, manga may require less budget, but it also makes less money (at least for the artist.) Manga is much cheaper in Japan than in many/most other countries, and therefore less profitable. Also it can be rather expensive to actually print the books.

As far as I'm concerned your post was remarkably unproductive.

To OP:

Blood+ / Skip Beat = manga
Antique Bakery / Nodame = anime (I'd suggest drama AND anime for Nodame actually.)
The rest = haven't seen.
