How i got into reading mangaHow i got into reading manga

Hi MFC,

As the title suggest, im going to talk about how i got into reading manga.
I was never a manga reader as I tried multiple of times reading online but always getting distracted by something else.

One day, I was waiting for my tutor for some extra lessons.Now, she used to be a big anime fan, she had a collection of manga when she was young and even did a cosplay for when she went to Manifest( cant remember what character). When she came, she remembered i had a small "collection" of figures and brought 4 books of mahoromatic.

Why these books? Well probably because i am a fan of comedy anime.
I only read the first two volumes(and really trying to read the third online XD) and im really liking the manga so far, it's interesting and funny.

My tutor isn't your average tutor or teacher, she didnt have a teaching certificate or anything, just teaching methods that work for me. She even tries to help boost my confidence when talking to people I don't know very well. If you were to talk to me irl, i would usually just stay quiet and only talked when I needed to.

Anyways, i guess that's it, thank you for reading one of my personal experiences. I was wondering, how did you get into reading manga? just by reading it I presume.

Oh, I have one physical manga though, if you can call it that. It's "Manga Guide To Physics". Bought it cause I was still in school and was a nerd physics was HARD.

My friends in middle school were really into otaku stuff. Was casually reading a manga over my friend's shoulder one day, decided that the drawings were cute, and started reading it myself.

Manga was my first introduction to this whole fandom, actually. I was originally very reluctant to watch anime because I thought it was weird. OTL

At school everyone bought 1 volume (Detective Conan, Dragonball) and then we passed them on to each other. There was this one guy who never gave the manga back, so he was the last to read it.

Didn't read any manga for like 10 years after that.

Watched the Claymore anime and wanted to know how the story continues -> bought the manga.
It was SO much better than the anime.
Now i read alot of manga and usually don't even bother watching the anime version.

Also, lots of doujinshi and VNs now.

My sister received a "How to draw manga" book when I was around 8 years old, and since then we both wanted to try to read some actual manga. The first one I read was Tokyo Mew Mew since my sister borrowed the first volume from a classmate and I fell in love with it haha. I watched the anime so many times I could remember what almost every episode was about by memorizing which episode number it was. (I was a little obsessed lol.) After that I tried other series that were being sold at the time, and 8 years later I still love reading manga and watching anime. ^^

InuYasha was my first manga series. I remember my dad surprised me, when I was 10 years old, by presenting me with volume 6 and I was the happiest person in the world. After that I began collecting the entire series. Every time a new volume was released, I would get it and read it that same exact day in the car, on the way home. After that, everything went downhill because I started collecting too much and now I'm trying to sell most of my collection, haha.

I rediscovered sailor moon when I was about 11 only to find that the dubbed anime had been heavily edited. So I read the manga online as I wanted an unedited version of the story. I have since bought Kodansha's release :)

After that I went looking for similar series and ended up buying Chobits. God I remember being so shocked by that!

If there is an anime adaptation of a manga, I won't usually read the manga. I read manga when there isn't an anime adaptation or before there was an anime adaptation. If I read a manga and an anime adaptation comes out afterwards, I'll continue reading the manga but I usually drop reading the manga. xD

I enjoy animation, color, japanese voice acting and music.

I've always loved reading, novels and comics alike, so when I first stumbled into the Shaman King manga online and started reading it, I immediately wanted to own the physical books. I still read some manga online, although not very frequently, but I agree with you that having the book on your hands is much, much better for a lot of reasons. even though English manga are insanely expensive for my pocket T.T
