mermaid melody - pichi pichi pitch! i thought it was so cool back in 2nd grade, but now i read one piece and say " cant velieve i actually liked that crap". no offense to author, just that their stories are SO CORNY.
I can't remember my exact first manga, I don't know if I read scanlations first or bought...I think I bought Fruits Basket up to 12 after watching the anime. Then I bought 4 volumes of Marmalade Boy and 2 from Anatolia Story
