    Should I read manga after watch OP anime?

    i just watch the whole OP series in these 2 weeks. Will i miss any dialogues or scene if i dont read the manga? What i mean is there any difference btw anime and manga other than filler anime?

    I'm not particularly sure but you might miss some important data which occurs quite often when they make anime from a manga

    Only thing different about the anime and manga his the Davy Back Fight arc. It was done totally different from the manga but I still prefer the anime version to the manga version

    It's more often the other way around.. Anime is usually being made after chapters of manga, so its like 2nd time making the same chapter, so you can throw more info that you forgot to put in the 1st drawing, and there are a lot of places where the anime explains stuffs that the manga forgot to.

    About your question.. If you aint lazy, read the whole manga. If you are lazy, I think that the current Anime episode is somewhere around 406 manga episode, so you can try reading from there..

    I always read the manga first for two main reasons:

    1. more information in the manga often
    2. I can not read manga of watched anime

    I think it depends whether u are patient enough. Traslated anime is way behind manga...

    If u cant wait, its best u follow manga..
