I picked up manga from my friend Abby-chan. I always saw her with manga and I read one and then I wanted to read more, and then my manga obsession began. lol

I have always liked comics, but I picked up InuYasha at the library and it all kind of went down-hill from there.

I became interested in manga through Japanese class in High School. I would read really simply child aimed manga in Japanese like Card Captors Sakura or Sailor Moon. Now, that I have a greater understanding of the Japanese language and kanji characters I am starting to read Hagaren manga in Japanese. I bought this great book from the book-store a couple days ago that gives brief biographies of Japan's greatest manga-kas.(It is called MANGA and it by Amano Masanao. The book features all most every type of manga out there, so just be wary of some of the images in the book. ) I have found some wonderful manga series that way from historical to artsy. Learn Japanese so that you will be able to read and comprehend all of these great manga that can not be found in the US yet.

Manga (in our language) - mango fruit
Then he gave me a japanese version of a pokemon manga (lol) even thought I didn't understand it then he gave me a suikoden 3 manga and I liked it! And then, i started watching more anime and then yeah thats what made me hooked on phonix! I mean...Manga!! (hardy har har) huh.gif

My first manga was A.I love you by Ken Akamatsu. I didn't know why I picked it up...maybe beacause I'm a big fan of Love Hina or I liked the art. Maybe it's my obsession for anything Japanese >_<

Ooh, Suikoden! That's a nice manga... When I was little, about five years old or so, my dad always had to buy me comics to get me to go to the dentist. I'll never forget that Doraemon was the first exposure to manga that I ever had. After that came Dragonball (admit it, who's never heard of it?), Sailormoon (only for a while), and then Rurouni Kenshin (oh yeah!). I guess, at first I gothooked to manga because I read almost anything and manga is intresting, but now, I realize that manga is a very good way to preserve culture and yet entertain (Hikaru no Go, anyone?) Besides that, the translation for manga nowadays is excellent, so you don't need to worry about bad English (rude Engish is a different matter though.) Finally, by reading manga/watching anime, I have picked up on a lot of information, as I like to research anything that I come across.

I started reading comics (mostly french ones) because of the artwork. I never took a close look at mangas because I thought - meh, they are not coloured and drawn too fast.
That was before I watched the first ep of FMA. After that first ep I wanted more...
The second ep took too long to download so I started reading the manga in the meantime - and I really loved it!

I first started to read manga when my sister's friend started lending books. My sister would let me read them, and then I got hooked on the series she sent over....

Ehhh... to be honest, I'm not all that familiar with manga outside of what's tied in with anime. But with most series, there's significant divergence from the anime's plot to warrant reading the manga, and there is more cohesiveness in a lot of ways, because a manga is generally created by a handful of people and only one or two writes and directs things, whereas in anime, there are dozens of people involved in a project, all of whom have different ideas about direction.
Plus, manga tends to handle more 'adult' subject matter, which is too risqué, even for Japanese tv, and doesn't beat around the bush when it comes to sex, violence and generally adult topics.
