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..

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.
