I remember hating reading even just reading subs, then I came across the manga called Denpa Kyoushi. Loved this manga, this manga got me starting to read manga in general.

I was really never into manga before, but I'm beginning to produce interests for the things.. For the question it was Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun..

I think it was a old Gundam manga, when I didn't really know what manga was. It was just a backwards comic with no color to me back then XD

 

Once I knew what anime and manga was and fell in love with it it was Blue Exorcist.

Mine was likely Pokemon Adventures.  Does the series way more justice than the show or even the games ever have.

Now there is a manga that brings up memories as well.  Really good manga, just stopped following it due to slow release schedule.

I think the first manga I ever read might have been Fruits Basket. I used to hang out at the public library after school and read manga/comics by the fireplace there

I read some basketball manga when I was really young, I don't quite remember the name of it.

My father still has it somewhere and ive seen it but its in Japanese and I kinda have to think to read it so I cant remember the name from passing.

I have never read a manga, but I'm looking for one to start off with! If someone could recommend me a romance manga I would be grateful!

Same! Although I didn't read them at school or at the library. The only manga my school had back then was Dragon Knights, which I found boring. Makes me wonder if they ever got more. Library never had any.

I don’t know if my school library had any manga. But they did have a collection of graphic novels, where I discovered Sandman stuff and also i vaguely remember one about Discworld

Hmm,I would recommend you ookami shoujo to kuro ouji,it’s typical shojo romance manga and it ended so you don’t have to wait,I think it’s pretty good for start(my opinion)...

 

And to answer original topic,my first manga was tokyo ghoul,even tought I don’t read it anymore(I have to start again) I read a lot of manga and I mean a lot,I actually have this ritual,one month i watch anime,like,only thing I do is watch anime,then other month I read manga,same like anime,only manga,then book and then movies and series and games.

Might be Death Note. I probably read the first few chapters at fourth grade or something.

I was a casual so one of my first ones were Fairy Tail since it was common at bookstores in my country. Got hooked into anime next and then read Hunter X Hunter (got stuck now cuz of hiatus) but it was a great manga. I then read more mainstream shounen until i shifted to isekai.

Nisekoi. This is the anime which hooked me. When I finally finished the 2 seasons of it, I craved for more. I read the manga (started where the anime ended, very typical) and luckily the manga was nearing its end. It was a really great read for a first.

The first manga I ever read was Rurouni Kenshin which promptly ruined a lot of shounen for me due to my expectations rising after that.

The first manga I read was Fruits Basket back in junior high. My school had it in the library so I would read what was there during some of my lunch periods. Befire then it was mostly anime.

Battle Angel Alita was the one I got hooked on, though I wound up losing interest during the Last Order series. Really though, I always preferred animation as a medium. I used to read the series in Viz’s Animerica Extra & Dark Horse’s Super Manga Blast, but the only other series I really read regularly were Oh My Goddess & Yotsuba. (Oops, forgot about XXXholic & Chibi Vampire :p)

My first manga was Princess Ai. It is American made but wasn't a bad read. I was like in middle school. Still it would awhile after that before i really got into anime and manga. I'm a late bloomer it wasn't until my mid 20's before things really kicked off. Now in my mid 30's I am totally addicted and I have a nice collection of things going and I'm glad that i have these things in my life. I just wish I had people to hang out with and like it so that i could talk and watch with others.
