I like the anime more than the manga. It's hard to tell what's happening in the manga with all the magic seals here and there and a bunch of other random stuff.
I'm quite disappointed that in the second OAV they skipped the Celes arc, which I was really looking forward to with hey, more magic seals here and there! I was thinking the battle scenes would look really epic. I was right, since at the start of the OAV it showed a short scene of the ending of the Celes arc - and boy did the animations look hawt. Go back and re-do Celes pls.
And the manga is just full of random shits that I have a hard time following. D=
