I didn't really know what was good, so I bought Mixxzine which had a couple of popular titles Sailor Moon, Parasyte, MK Rayearth.

I don't think I've ever 'entered the manga world' I might own a couple hundreds comics but that was from a time where all of that media was in a scarcity and the internet resources available today were not at your fingertips.

the majority of titles were released by Dark Horse or Viz, and none of them have appreciated in value 1 cent save for Ghost in the Shell issues

I'm still an anime 1st devotee, which is to say an abomination; unapologetically so.

In the 90's I managed to get some Dragon Ball and Ranma 1/2 volumes, but it wasn't until the early 2000's -when I discovered Angel Sanctuary- that I definitely entered in the manga world and became a regular reader.

Mars was the first one I read unflipped. I had previously read Ranma 1/2 before, but those were flipped to read like a western comic.

My first was InuYasha ?. I checked it out when I was out on my weekly run to buy Witch comics as a kid and got hooked.

Kimagure Orange Road and Maison Ikkoku back in the mid 2000s.
But at the root were all the J-animes that were broadcast on TV when I was a kid (before my country put a ban because you know violence, meh) : the two mentioned above, Ranma 1/2, Hokuto no Ken, Dragon Ball, Saint Seya, ... Funny and probably not uncommon thing is that what I loved back then (shounen, action) I now hate and what I loathed (romance, drama, josei) I now prefer.

I started with Naruto, back then I didn't know manga existed, so when I found out that there was a comic ahead of the anime in terms of storyline, I went and pursued it. However I didn't really enter in the manga world until I stumbled in some Pandora Hearts fanart and got curious. Fullmetal Alchemist sealed the deal.

I started off browsing on OneManga, though I wasn't really too into it. Just viewed spoilers for Naruto or something because I was much more into anime at the time.

My girlfriend back then noticed, and suggested I read Liar Game. Didn't exactly like it very much but it did open me up to the idea of reading more manga series out there.

Oof, can't really say what's my very first manga, but the one that made me want to explore the whole manga landscape (or at least the Kirara one, because i enjoy the magazines) is Yumekui Merry.

I had heard that it was WAY BETTER than the anime and readed it to see if that was true.

And yes, it was pretty damm good.

I don't really remember what the first manga I read was, but I used to really be obsessed with the Pokémon series and games and I liked to get that manga series from the library.

I also remember reading a little Yotsuba& but l didn't ever finish it. I'm pretty sure anime got me into manga lastly, but I do have to owe it to the manga I read when I was young ?.

“Maka Maka” was my first and was the reason I got obsessed with Yuri, at that time I didn’t understand tags so the second manga I read was “Trash” which almost put me off manga altogether simply because of the rape and murder (naïveté is a blessing, now I’m just a corrupted manga enthusiast).

I started with early US Shonen Jump - DBZ, Narooto, Yu-Gi-Oh etc. I'd blaze through those in one sitting, but I lost interest after a while. Later, I started watching Anime Abandon and got into all those sleazy 90's anime, and got curious about their manga sources. After reading insanity like Apocalypse Zero and Riki-Oh, I was hooked.

Originally, it was a combination of Sekirei, Wolf and Spice, Elfen Lied, and Shuffle! (Along with their anime adaptation). However, I eventually dropped off from it, and what made me recently interested again was I love cinema, I am lonely.

My first manga was Detective Conan and I borrowed if from my friend at school. I also read Crayon Shin-chan back then, also borrowed. Basically I borrowed everything that my friend had haha.. It was around 2000 I think..
But one time maybe one or two years later my friend asked me to draw Recca from Recca no Honoo and that was the first manga series that I followed and bought every month. I remember used almost 80% of my monthly allowance at that time just to buy some manga every month haha.. Time goes so fast..
