Well... anime fillers are generally pretty gross, and I like manga because I can take it anywhere with me and read it whenever I want (On several occasions I've found myself going out to see a movie, and sitting in the theater reading instead XD). But I can't sit there watching anime at school or anything T_T. I guess... it really depends on which series. Naruto for example, I'm not really a huge fan of the anime, but the manga is pretty good. Though, when it comes to stuff like Bleach I think I prefer the anime.

That depends. The manga shows a more detailed idea of the world you see in the anime. And if you doesn't understand an anime episode (no matter how many times you watch it) the manga helps. I guess that I like manga more.

What I hate is that when you read the manga and then watch the anime, you get dissapointed because what you liked in the manga may not appear in the anime and vice versa. I, however, like watching the anime rather than reading the manga. Nothing wrong with mangas, but i like seeing the action come to life.

Manga because the plot generally possesses greater depth and stronger character development.
It depends on the series really. Bleach anime and manga are both equally good. The anime actually has a whole arc separate from the manga; it was very well done despite not being in the manga. FMA anime and manga are both good, despite the anime being drastically different. Love Hina manga is much better than the anime though.

Give me manga any time of the day, the artists have their own liberty and complete control of their creation. Plus, they don't have to worry about deleting scenes because of the movie being allowed by the producers can be no more than 2 hours, when in manga the narrative can be as long as you want. Akira is good example, a friend of mine and i had already seen the movie but we got curious about the manga, so when we started reading we were completly blown away by it, it's just so much better and it's lot longer with great moments. WARNING, SPOILER: Who would have imagined that Akira is actually alive and one of the main characters.
