YOU’RE WELCOME! :D
I feel guilty for always going on sudden hiatuses though…
Personally, I like the manga more. I love major, overlying plotlines that never get boring and always keep my attention, and I love watching a couple slowly fall in love. While I love the anime too, it’s just too short to have all that.
Besides, I’m pretty sure the anime is the reason the series has such a childlike reputation. It never gets to the dark themes in the manga that I love :/
Mikan is actually older than Natsume by a few months. Mikan’s birthday is some time in May, while Natsume’s is November 27th.
