I started reading manga off the Internet about a year ago...winter break, I think it was. I had a lot of time then. I came across a scanlation site for short manga stories, and I started reading those. I liked the artwork, and I was amazed at how easily the story was conveyed through dialogue, short explanations, and the actual images. At first I was a little wary of the ongoing series--would I have time to read them? But I couldn't say no to Naruto and Bleach.

Nowadays, I use manga to supplement anime. There's so much more detail in the manga sometimes. And as others have mentioned, the stories, in some cases, are different.

Actually, I never heard of manga until I saw it with my own two eyes. Saturday morning/ extremely dubbed kid anime, yes, I mean who HASN'T heard of either DBZ, Sailor Moon, Card Captor Sakura, Pokemon, or Yu-Gi-Oh? But with manga, a few years ago, I was lookin' through the young adult book section and I see it. Well, I see Sailor Moon. And I used to LOVE Sailor Moon so I'm like "I KNOW THAT!!!" Sadly it was the 2nd edition but I got it anyway, despite my worried-ness about the price. And after my SM craze, I got into all these other titles and authors and that brings me to where I am today, I guess. Yeah Manga!!!

The artwork/characters first, then I looked at the storyline. Whenever I see an anime I like, I try to read the manga. And whenever I read a manga I like, I try to see the anime.

It's a looooong story.

it all started with Inuysha. For my tenth birthday, I got Inuyasha manga volume 1 and 2. Then, since I L-O-V-E cats, my mom thought I would like Tokyo Mew Mew. And now I'm up to forty-something in manga with 8 collections.

I was at Target and I happened to stumble into a Yuyu Hakusho manga. I remember watching YuyuHakusho on T.V. so I decided to buy it.

I saw a friend reading it, and being naturally nosy and curious, I asked to read it. It was volume one of Fruits Basket. I loved it right away, and started to buy my own. Now I have 10 volumes, soon to be 11.

I started watching Sailor moon and Pokemon when I was a kid, and then I moved to a new school district where I met a bunch of girls who also liked anime and manga, and they introduced me to some of the manga I like. I also go to the bookstore to see what types of manga I can try out next.

Well... I've always watched anime about as long as I can remember... I just didn't know that it was anime. What got me into manga were my friends. I saw them reading it and noticed that it looked a lot like anime (by this time in my life, I knew what it was) so they let me borrow it and I've been hooked since happy.gif

My first manga was Gundam Wing: Episode Zero. I never knew what manga was until even after I bought some more GW graphic novels. They were translated from their original Japanese and given a Western Left to Right format. You must understand this was years ago. One day, I picked up an art book by an American cartoonist by the name of Christopher Hart, who had an entire series of How-To-Draw Japanese Manga books. It was then that I discovered the world of Manga. The first time I encountered the Right to Left Eastern Format was a few years ago when I picked up a copy of Shonen Jump #2. I became obsessed with Manga from that point on, collecting every issue of the Magazine, picking and choosing favorites to follow, and going out of my way to search every bookstore within reach for Manga that catches my interest.

To me, I am very much attracted by the superior art found in Manga and Anime, compared to American Cartoons and Comics. As I grew up, I began to admire these Mediums more for their content. I find that the best Anime and Manga out there can be found through extensive research.

Enjoy!

I'll be honest...Shonen Jump and Yu-Gi-Oh! vol. 1 were my first manga and the reason I picked them up was because they had Yugi on the front ^.^;;. Now, my horizons are much wider and I like to read whatever sounds interesting!
