Finally, I get a bit of of time to throw in my two cents.
Like Sean, I do much prefer the manga in terms of story. I mean,
when you have characters that you like, it makes the work that much more
dearer to you. I already like the anime characters, and I feel even more
so with the manga.
In terms of exploration of human psyche, the anime is far more
focused on that as a goal, and I like it for that. That, I imagine, is why
Zhou likes the anime more, especially since he has experience in that sort
of thing. You see a lot of what goes on inside one person, that way.
The way the manga is then set up, though, allows for more
character-to-character interaction. Interpersonal, rather than
intrapersonal. Shinji and Asuka actually _talk_ in the manga, that sort of
In the end, again, I prefer the manga characterizations over the
anime, and so, I favor the manga overall. I still respect and like the
anime, though, for its explorations of human psychology.
