(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?

I started watching anime without knowing it was anime at first. When I was 4 I started watching Sailor Moon, then Speed Racer, and Battle of the Planets later on. Then around 1997, Sailor Moon came back on Toonami with some lost episodes or something, and I guess I got hooked again. Then that led to Dragonball Z, Pokemon. Around 2000 (I was 12) I started watching Gundam Wing and stuff like that, and learned that all this stuff I had been watching was called anime.

As for manga, I only started reading that this year. I only heard of manga really just last year when a friend bought Saiyuki and started telling me about it. My school's library recently purchased a bunch of manga (I was so happy and surprised) and I started reading Saiyuki and Evangelion. I meant to check out DN Angel and others, but it was hard to find and by the time I actually could find it, school was out.

Now that I've recently got a job, I'm going to buy FMA and Chrno Crusade manga when I get my first paycheck biggrin.gif

I was desperate to find out more about FMA so I started reading the manga since I couldn't watch the episodes I missed. Of course, now I realize that it didn't help because the manga chapters all vary compared to the episodes.

My slight obsession with anything that's Japanese, the fact that I already liked drawing in anime style myself and that there's a mangastore at a seven minutes' walk from where I live.

What makes me pick up a certain manga now is having heard good critics and... dundundun... the art.

Well, reasons for picking new manga... it always differs. tongue.gif
For example... I've started reading Naruto after seeing a video (made by fans) about it. At that time I couldn't watch the anime, so... cool.gif
And about FMA... I just heard about it on some forum (drawing-related) and there was a link for the first two chapters (later I found the others).

I saw the Shaman King anime and I found out about manga. And I ended up getting different manga.

I've always liked to read more than watch TV. As well, manga artwork is usually nicer than the corresponding anime.

heh, that's interesting wink.gif
I too had watched anime without knowing it was that.. I learned the name while I was in Germany (as an exchange student). That was also the place I discovered a "comic book" called Vampire Miyu belonging to the kids in my host family. I "read it" the wrong way round and was told that these "manga" were read from right to left wink.gif. The first manga I then read was Videogirl Ai (also discovered in my room)....I've always liked comics and figured that it was an easy way to learn the langauge too.. but I guess there was something in that particular manga that attracted me. Mainly the story and characters.... I later read every possible manga in their house (volumes of Angel Sanctuary, Fushigi Yuugi, Ranma 1/2, DNA^2, You're under Arrest, Seimaden etc. For some reason I didn't get into Vampire Miyu tongue.gif)... bought some myself and slowly my obsession grew. I also learned about the connection between manga and anime.. but got into anime later.

My mom always borrowed mangas from my cousin who is obssesed with them(she is now in college in Japan, hoping to become a manga drawer). I always read them, my mom liked to borrow mangas because she likes to draw them. (mi mom was a manga drawer assistant, but not anymore) Then I began to watch animes like Pokemon, Digimon, Card Captor Sakura, Detective Conan and stuff. I always read mangas where ever I find them. Then, I saw the universe of the computer world of animes, now I'm an anime/manga freak. So in another words, I just grew up in a manga enviornment.

I started to watch Sailor Moon and Card Captor Sakura and didn't even know it was anime. i found out they were anime when I started watching Pokemon. For some reason, I just always loved anime.

As for manga, when I got addicted to Inuyasha, I learned about manga on the internet. I didn't think of reading them, cuz I already watched the anime. But after going to a bookstore and seeing ALL the manga, I decided to try reading Inuyasha. I was only going to read vol. 1, but decided to continue. After that, I got Gravitation manga, Fruits Basket and others!
And, yes, the art.

Mainly because I love the art style and became curious. I discovered once I read one of the graphic novels that the inside storys can be just as wonderful as the internal and external art work! laugh.gif I love comparing the different artists styles, plus the stories are so endearing I don't know how I ever got along with out them. lol biggrin.gif
