    I started reading manga when I was about 10 years old. I remember that I had gone to the library to pick up some books for my project and while I was waiting to be picked up I noticed some unusual "comic books" that didn't look like any I had ever seen before. I picked one up and instantly I liked it. I continued to go back to that same section for another year to read these unusual "comics". I didn't know what manga was for another two years when I got faster internet. Ah, if you're curious as to what my first manga was... it's Ranma 1/2. That was the first manga I randomly pulled out of the shelf.

    My first manga was Kaichou Wa Maid Sama! I started simply cuz I wanted to know what happens next and this is how I started. It was not too long ago, may be 4~5 months.

    My 1st manga should be Negima, kinda curious why the anime seems so screwed up lol...
    It should be around 2-3 years ago. Don't really read much manga though...

    My first manga was .hack, bought a copy of it from barnes and noble, didn't really enjoy it. I first started reading manga when naruto episodes went into filler mode (6 years ago?) and i decided i'd just read the manga of it and so began my spiral down the manga hole.

    I can't remember what my first ever manga was. Goes way back high school. One of my friends brought hers and I borrowed it. But the first manga I bought for myself is CLAMP School Detectives. Well that was back when I was still into shoujo series.

    hmm... I started reading manga I think when I was 7 something. it just happened that my old cousins brought some manga with him and I bumped into one.
    at that time, my desire to read was very high. it had become my urge to begin with. I read almost everything
    and when I bumped into manga, I cant stop reading it. until now.
    the first manga if I am not mistaken is dragon ball or doraemon. I cant really recall it.
