Yes. Anime tends to drag out tension and fanservice forever and ever and ever which covers what, one page or a couple of panels in manga? You can fast forward through it but it doesn't help if 10 minutes of the 30 minute episode is spent staring at each other with the steeliest of stares.

Anime can be based on manga but the anime creators choose which panels to linger on or emphasize.

If those were their only problems with anime I wouldn't be so confused. But including things like "tropes" and "genre conventions" on the list of why they like manga but not anime makes the whole thing weird. Those have nothing to do with the difference in the medium. There's no difference between them when you switch from anime to manga.

I meant medium everywhere I said genre. My bad.

Yeah, but we were giving examples about how some tropes can also be less obnoxious in manga than anime, for instance. The mediums really are quite different.

Dragon Ball is the king of this! I read the manga first. I decided to try a random episode of the anime. I quit when it not only 1. dragged out a surprise attack taking a few panels to almost five minutes of the enemy crawling closer, but also 2. added two of the characters seeing each other and introducing themselves just to pad things out.
