Mine was Inuyasha. My friend recommended that I watch the anime, and after a few episodes I discovered that you could actually read it (I had no idea what manga was at the time haha), and that was it for me.

My first manga was... aw crap can't remember correctly but it was either Fruits Basket or DNAngel. A friend was carrying one of the books around and I spotted it and asked her why its cover was backwards. O.o
Thus began my love for manga.
And yes, I still laugh about the backwards thing to this day.
I take no credit for the avvy; only using it till I can whip up a little somethin' somethin' special.

Mine would have to be Fruits Basket, however, the first actual time I read a manga was when my friend was reading Yotsuba&! and I asked her about it. I gave up after like two pages because I couldn't read it (the 'backwards thing'), but I remember it was when Yotsuba put fireworks on the hood of a car. XD
Then I got into Fruits Basket because the same friend told me it was one of her favorites. XD

My first manga...? Chobits~! xD It's when I started buying manga and read it, I was watching anime before (oh, well, watching, I watched 5-6 series or something like this or when I was just a kid I watched things like Sailor Moon or Slayers and wasn't aware that this thing is called anime). From Chobits the story about me and m&a really started~
