(Preface: this isn't a survey or anything)
I was browsing the manga section in the local B&N and realized something: in no other section of the store was there such a diverse population of readers as there was by the manga. It was rather astonishing.
So I found myself curious:
what made you interested manga/anime? What drew you to it? Did someone introduce you? Do you have friends who you can talk to about anime/manga or is it more of a private obsession?

"Why are elves always swordsmen?
"ah, let me see. Sometimes it isn't convenient or safe to to use magic; a sword is as useful as a wand or rod for storing spells; projectile weapons tend to be awkward and can run out of ammunition at awkward moments-"
"And you are an elegant people and swords just look Really Cool."
"and swords look Really Cool."
