I always read graphic novels, and I come from a Japanese background, so anime seemed to always be around (parents/grandparents/friends of family getting them for me). I had the anime kid movies when I was little (like Magical Princess Gigi). I realized somewhere along the line that there were mangas of the animes and that did it.

Well, first I got into all these anime series (little:Sailor Moon, Speed Racer, Pokemon, Hamtaro older:Inu Yasha, FMA, Rurouni Kenshin, all the stuff I'm into now) Then i "found" the manga sectoin at Walden Books. I've really been looking at them since I could read pretty well (about 2nd grade). So i got my friend to but me Tokyo Mew Mew for my B-day. Than I started collecting. I only stsarted though I think a year ago.

What hooked me onto Manga? I'll be truthful, a couple of years ago I could have cared less about this stuff. I remember my mom trying to get me to watch Sailor Moon when I was little but I refused. I wanted to watch Looney Toons and other types of cartoons. Another time, when I was little, I stayed the night with one of my older brothers and his friend and they were watching DBZ (I didn't know it was DBZ at the time they were watching it) and I didn't really care much for it. But, my 8th grade year (I'm a Senoir in High Schoo now so this is a looooong time ago) I was watching Cartoon Network because we finally got it on cable and I saw Toonami and I saw DBZ and Tenchi Muyo. I reconized DBZ and Tenchi Muyo (I saw bits of Tenchi Muyo when I was at a friend's house when I was little) and I immediatly liked it. I got on the computer and started researching other animes. I started downloading music videos, moives, online mangas and episodes off the internet and started watching/reading them as well as watching what anime and movies come on T.V. In fact, in less than I week I learned, by reading, everything that happened in DBZ up the the current events that were showing on T.V and the characters etc etc down those lines. In less than a year I started watching: Sailor Moon, Tenchi Muyo, DB, DBZ, Pokemon, and Digimon. As years progress I've learned of many more animes and manga's that I have come to love. This is the list of animes and I know a lot about: Sailor Moon, DB/Z/GT, Digimon, Pokemon (the earlier seasons), Inuyasha, Full Metal Alchemist, Spiral, DNAngel, Hellsing, Excel Saga, Azumanga Diaoh, Noir, Naruto, Yu-Gi-Oh, Samurai Girl Real Bout High School, Saiyuki, Rurouni Kenshin, and Chobits. I guess you can say I have no life.
I have seen: Inuyasha, DB/Z/GT, Hellsing, DNAngel, and Full Metal Alchemist from very first episode to the current, new episodes I have Played and Beaten: Inuyasha and the Cursed Mask (PS2), FMA and the Broken Angel (PS2), FMA and the Crimson Elixer (PS2) and the 1st Digimon Game for the PS1.

well i didn't exatly read it coz he told me, i first got into the anime, then he told me that there was a manga and it was more advance (and you probably know how I love spoilers) so knowing that, made me read the manga^^

i started liking manga.. because of my slow internet connection... it takes me a while to actualy download a full epsiode of anime..so i started downloaded manga..which would occupy me much longer then anime..and the file size is much smaller then episode...
and theres just alot of interesting and crazy manga out there!!

I was roaming around the library and then I saw a volume of Cardcaptor Sakura. It looked so cute that I checked it out, and I've been hooked since. XD

I started to get into The DNAngel anime, and I had heard that there were such things as books of anime so i looked around on the web and saw the tokyo pop website. I got the manga, and pretty much everytime I watch a new anime series I get the manga for it. I love manga!
