Personally, I prefer manga, because anime rarely captures the mangaka's unique style. With anime, you just don't get to enjoy their progress in art as well as the effort they put into their coloured pieces and still-shots. Plus, anime is so much more a commercial product, so often times the quality gets sacrificed (filler arcs, budget cuts that result in abrupt endings and heavily recycled scenes etc.) It's gotten to the point that I now feel trepidation at the prospect of watching any anime adaptation.
Of course, I do make exceptions for anime that aren't adaptations, and I still enjoy those very much. Anything else is a no-go though.0
