    Default Are Anime Series Better Than Anime Movies?

    I've been asking about this recently, Anime series are more better than anime movies but I stand corrected. Both of them have advantages and disadvantages. But if I were to ask you, would you prefer series or movie?

    i like em both (equally). they both have their strong points, and both have their flaws, sometimes I want to watch anime movies so I could finish just finish a whole story in an hour or two. but most of the time I'd watch anime series (since there are only few anime movies)
    and there are stories that need to take time for you to get attached to (like steins;gate, and baccano)

    Though I don't like naruto and one piece movies or any other anime series that has a movie. sorry naruto and OP fans, I just don't find them as entertaining as the actual series is. they just feel like a 2hour long filler episode. the only anime movie I liked that came from a series is Higashi no Eden (since the 2 movies actually serve as a continuation of the series) and K-ON (dunno, I just like em, and they did a better justice on how to end the series than the last episode). I just hope the To Aru No Majutsu Index movie, the Toshokan Sensou movie and the Steins;Gate would be well written, if not I'm going to rage. lol


    but if it's just stand alone movies like bungaku shoujo, the girl who lept thru time, colorful, and all the other awesome movies, i'd love em.

    for me it depends, if the series doesn't satisfy me, ill try to find if it has a movie and in the end the movie is much good than the series , and vice-versa

    I would say myself in some cases yes and in others no. Unless you are talking about a Miyazaki film then those are amazing.

    Recap movies? Normally it falls on disadvantage but if not a recap movie, then its equal to the series.

    Both have their own story to go with. All has this story and character development need to fulfill and art and audio to match with the show. But if its about extra movies just because the series is still going on and on, then normally it has a low range of caliber compare to normal movie, movie series, recap movies and tv series since that those show normally work as fillers and nothing else.

    Sometimes anime movies are better than the series, because sometimes the anime gets cut off in the end and there'll be a chance that there won't be any sequel for it. But most of the time, I prefer series over the movies.

    For me nothing can really beat one of my fave anime movies... SPIRITED AWAY and TONARI NO TOTORO

    Isn't it the truth that seems the most suspicious?

    I like both equally as well, but I am not too fond of "recap" movies when they are related to a series.

    Well most anime movies I've seen have only been cool because they were based off of series that I really liked....
