@devilmenworks: How are the arcs better? Or the fights? The supporting cast who are almost all as deep as puddles? Maybe the art but that art style was the reason TAS looked so stiff most of the time.
The biggest thing tas has going for it is some more accurate portrayal but SSM is a better show. Maybe the discussion should be about the better adaptation. If so then i believe SSM wins by a slight margin since it keeps the cores of the characters while TAS made some really stupid changes to those.
