A few years ago, I wanted to buy some manga because everybody talked about it. I had been watching some anime. My sister had introduced me to anime, Sailor Moon, Magic Knight Rayerth and Dragonball Z. So I cjose Zodiac P.I. because I love astrology and crimes related to Zodiac signs sounded interesting. razz
I really really really love this manga! It really made me cry a bucket of tears and the plot, characters and drawing are just awesome! Hands down to the mangaka cool (Tho I forgot her name already . __ .)
My very first manga was Yu-Gi-Oh!
I was hardcore into the show back then and I remember seeing the shonen jump manga commercials on the Yu-Gi-Oh! VHS's. (A really long time ago) I saw them in BooksAMillion one day and decided to buy the whole first series. Vol, 1-7. $75 in total. Oh the blissful days of having an allowance.
My first two (I read them around the same time) mangas were Fullmoon Wo Sagashite and Rosario + Vampire, both great mangas, and they both have anime versions if you'd rather watch than read wink Personally, I like Rosario + Vampire more. It's so funny and there's a good storyline. My friend from school introduced this to me, thus sparking my love for manga ^.^
My first manga I read was Boys Over Flowers. I only read the first volume though and preferred not to read the rest. That same day I read the first manga that sparked my interest, Yu Yu Hakusho. I was introduced to manga by my friend Roxanne in sixth grade while I was at her house and she pressured me into reading them with her.
My first anime I think was Rurouni Kenshin, the first manga I ever read was One Piece.
Kenshin will always hold a special place in my heart. I still remember staying up late to watch it on adult swim. smile
