I enjoy anime very much, but it all comes down to cost. It costs $25 USD for one volume of anime on DVD in most cases. Outlaw Star is only 3 discs, and that box set costs $90 last time I saw it. But I can get 1 volume of manga for $10, and it will usually have more story elements in it than one volume of the anime did.

Then there's the issue of quality. Of the mangas I've read, (not many mind you, but still), the manga was [i]much[i/] better than the anime. Plus there is usually more to the story in the manga that was cut out of the anime (Full Metal Panic, Nausicaa, and Love Hina to name a few).
