    I watch the anime first and then read the manga chapter that corresponds with the episode. Reading the manga earlier spoils the anime for me XD It's the same for all other anime ^^

    lol, its turning into a anime vs manga discussion rather than the benefits of reading manga after watching the anime...

    Different ppl have different style I suppose.. Reading manga and watching anime for me is just 2 times the fun.. Sometimes, I find that anime missed out some details but at other times, I find the transition in the anime better than the manga.. So it's kinda good to do both

    i personally read the manga and then watch the anime... i like the action sequences a little better in the anime but i cant resist the temptation to read ahead in the manga... even though i know what will happen in the anime, i still enjoy watching it.

    To me it's exactly the oposite, anime is a bonus to the manga, with the cool voices, nices musics and flashy animation, that's something I don't need to apreciate a story, but that can really enhance the experience ... or destroy it when it's lamely done. Anime mostly always comes after the manga so, it's quite logical.

    About the topic...I think in one piece it's not necessary to read the manga in addition to the anime, if your concern is about the plot, the anime details mostly everything the manga does, so don't worry.

    i dont like the luffy anime character compared to the original luffy manga... he's too serious and kinda annoying at times... and older. so to me the manga is important if you really want to enjoy one piece that much

    I only stick to manga, so I might be wrong here.
    If you're planning on reading the manga and watch the anime, I think you should go with reading the manga first, so that you can enjoy the anime better. It's like the maincourse food and the anime is your dessert that compliments the manga.
    I personally like the manga better because of the art in it, the artist spends more time on drawing each scene (i wonder) and many scenes can be so dramatic in black and white.
    ...the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short....

    The manga has more info about what really happend. Like how sanjis teacher lost his leg. It's not the same in the manga as it is in the anime

    the manga is way better because in the manga the plot is solid in the anime they sometimes change things that make the plot less solid
