I've always was interested in this manga but got around to reading or watching it.

So, I was wondering if I should read the manga or watch the anime?

Normally I'm more into reading manga but the art of the anime seemed better than the manga.

That's why I wanted your opinions.

If you want the full story you should read the manga. In my opinion a story is infinitely better when they don't cut half it out and then make up a poor excuse for an ending to fit it into a short anime series. I will agree that the anime looks better but unless visuals is all you care about it's going to leave you wanting.

Blasphemy! Elfen Lied is awesome!

Besides that if I have to pick read the manga.

An instant or an eternity. Both are the same, in the passing of an instant lies the beauty of eternity.

At least give a rationale for your answer.

To answer your question, I know for sure that both are amazing, though I only watched the anime.

Manga. The anime wallows in the ecchishit that takes up the first half of the story and never gets to the most entertaining parts.
