    Default What was the very first manga you read?

    I just got back from the book store and bought my first manga [Shakugan no Shana volume 1] and it brought up an idea for a post soo...

    If you own any, what was your first manga and what did you think about it?

    And for another conversational question, did you start your life as an otaku on anime or manga?


    PS if anyone knows whether or not there's a Darker than Black manga, please tell me..I didn't see it at the book store T.T

    I may sound like such a noob ... but I discovered anime and manga only 2 years ago ... all on my own and the very first one I read in Nov 2007 was Zettai Kareshi (Absolute Boyfriend) Loved it!! However it was on OneManga and I dont own any as they re not available in SL. There is one top level store that sells the brand new manga but they are very expensive and not in complete volumes. I dont mind the cost, but it would kill me to not have the complete series 0_0

    I started my love with anime - by accident while travelling overseas, and then found manga, by accident... This country I live in maybe a paradise in weather and other areas, but not for Otaku's. Its so rare to find anyone who has even heard of anime

    You? a noob?i discovered anime this summer xD

    anyways to keep on topic...
    i started out with anime sometime late spring, around the time school got out. The first manga i ever READ was (if it counts) Megatokyo. (if that doesnt count to you, since its american made, then i read Black Lagoon volume 1) however this shakugan manga is the first one ive owned to my name..ureshii ^_^... anyways i pretty much owe my entire life of anime to my friend Josh (otakuq on this site).

    I started out with Naruto.

    I remember that I wasted my entire summer break reading scans of it on MSN. I left it and never went back to it at the chapter where they defeat that one bad guy that controlled a bunch of puppets.

    The first manga in my collection was either chobits or a volume of shonen jump I got from a friend. I believe it was chobits though.
    The first manga I read was back when I was about 9,10,11. I'm not sure exactly which one though. Something like Sailor moon, Ceres: celestial legend, Mai: The Psychic girl, X/1999 or a manga I don't remember the name of. I just read a whole bunch of them in the library.

    And I started first on anime. Watching them on Toonami, kids wb, adult swim, and a local station that showed Kenshin. I've been told I saw Samurai pizza katz also(don't remember that).

    The first manga I bought was Ichigo 100% volume one, and that's the only reason I ever watch that kind of anime when they come out. Mmh, first one I read though was naruto XD, I read like 250 chapters, that was all that had been realeased back then, and never continued.
    I don't rly have a manga colection, cause is hard(*cough* I mean imposible) to find them arround here, but from time to time I order a couple of first tomes from argetina, just to compare the art with the anime xD

    The very first manga I read was Magic Knight Rayearth (borrowed from a friend). INDEED WE MUST ALL HAIL CLAMP!! *bows*

    And yes, I have been an otaku all my life. Pokemon, Sailor Moon, and Cardcaptors. Classics.
    Isn't it fine to say that we are loved?
    To be bound, so the world may never but touch
    Isn't this, too, just fate, and nothing more?
    Fade away, fade away, I say to a love...

    towards being a manga reader
