I love anime, but before I ever liked it I already liked comics (french and beligum ones) and later on manga.
As has been previously stated, I think anime just doesn't deliver the exact same kinde of content as a manga. I t can give more in terms of emotions through the voices and images, it can be beautifull and can have many things a book or a manga will never have; but it will also miss many things. (just like film adaptation always miss something out of the original)
Manga, books or comics can afford longer story, more detailed descriptions of the world, the charachter and any detail the author think is important to his work. Therefeore I think I will always prefer written versions as most of the times they are just deeper and anyway, there are many things that you just can't find anywhere else.
