Quote from CKent
Why isn't there an anime OVA series option? That's what I prefer, since the production values are usually higher than a TV anime, and it doesn't have the limited running time of a movie.

When I created this poll, I was thinking along the lines that an OVA (Original Video Animation) are almost always "new stories" that don't originate elsewhere.

If I added OVA to the poll choices, then I'd have to also add Original Net Anime (ONA) and Original Anime DVD (OAD), etc.

And this whole [ OVA | ONA | OAD ] adaptation idea could be of its own unique poll, if phrased correctly. Plus, I would have added it to the poll choices, like this: OAV ..which would have been worse than adding it at all since Original Animation Video is usually mistaken for Original Adult Video. Plus, only those who are really into the anime/manga culture would know or care what an OVA is.

But as I look back, I should have added it to the poll list. I just never would have guessed my poll would be chosen. If I could have seen into the future, I wouldn't have missed it. If you are into OVAs that are broken down into episodes, then go with an Anime TV show. If you are into OVAs that are just a one film wonder, then go with an Anime movie. Sorry for the inconvenience. none

People here certainly very tolerant to unsatisfactory quality of most anime out there. I weep for this.

grammar mistake is intentional, grammar nazis need their entertainment.

I choose manga only, since I don't watch/play the adaptation anyway. I don't have enough patience and time to download hundreds gb of anime/drama/game/etc. Generally I prefer reading to watching, so maybe that's why bigrazz. I like reading novel, but I prefer reading original story, not adaptation of some manga. If I already read the manga, why read the same story again.

I do watch anime, but only anime movie, mostly the ones that Studio Ghibli produced. They're short, the story are original and sometimes touching without being too heavy.
I watch anime OVA too, but if it's the continuation of the manga or if it's complementary to the manga. Something like RK: Seishouhen that told the story after the manga ends, or xxxHolic: Rou/ Adayume that explain some things that the manga doesn't explain.

It depends on the kinds of series you like. If you read gruesome Supernatural | Horror | Tragedy type of series that deals with constant dangers, fear, negativity and life threatening situations... you'd want that sort of stuff to not be a part of your life.

But if it is getting superpowers, getting into awesome romantic situations, meeting someone that may change your life for the better, having all real nine dragon-balls, obtaining a book that allows you to kill anyone you write their names in, etc., then I'd understand.

In fact, I also go for real life situation. biggrin

Static, I agree with everything you've said, except this part:

Plus, only those who are really into the anime/manga culture would know or care what an OVA is.

That same remark could be said about DramaCD, J-Drama/K-Drama, Musical, or even novel. Only the hardcore manga-fans will acknowledge their existence enough to vote for these choices. It's highly unlikely that these choices will get a high percentage of votes when compared to Doujins, Games, Anime, Live-Action adaptations.

Voted anime, because half the time, I imagine the manga characters to be god-like in terms of looks, and it's pretty hard for a human to live up to that. And at the same time, I like colours plus moving pictures. Anime movie or OVA would work too, but I guess I chose the common choice? You know, I always thought that OVAs seemed to have less 'movement' than anime, not more. Did someone say it was the other way round? Oh, and at the risk of sounding like an idiot, what's the difference between live-action and drama? I watch them, but I always thought that the terms were interchangeable.
