First manga... I guess it all started when Dragon Ball and Ranma 1/2 were all the rage in Latin America. A friend showed me a Dragon Ball volume in korean. Then I started special ordering Ranma 1/2. That's what started my collecting.
Wait... technically the first manga I ever had my hands (though not the one that really got me into reading) was a comic-book sized, flipped, one shot by Ippongi Bang that was published by Antartic Press, if I remember correctly. I think I still have it around...
Either Magic Knight Rayearth - published by MiXX, so the pages fell out after two weeks - or Oh My Goddess, back when Dark Horse just threw random chapters into each graphic novel. I can't remember which one I bought first, but I preferred OMG.
well, believe it or not, it was one piece. my friend was getting the books and I had no idea what i was getting my self into. soon i grew addicted to it.
a few weeks later my brother started talking about this Naruto thing and how it was really cool and all and I didn't believe him. i thought it was pretty stupid sounding, so I didn't even bother trying to read it...
all i remember was picking up a Naruto book somewhere and falling in love after the first page. from then on, One Piece came second.
Chalk up another one for Inuyasha. I got into the anime on Adult Swim first and then eventually found the manga. It's no longer one of my favorites, but it still holds a special place in my heart for leading me to bigger and better things. <3

Re: My first manga was...
King of Hell (majeh), the first manga that really got me into reading manga and collected it. been a manga fan for 6 years now because of this title, even though the story hasn't been much lately, i still read it. Hope it gets better in the next couple of years.
My first manga was Candy Candy. Last time i am so amused with the trend on shoujo art where the mangaka always whitening the eyes whenever some character show emotion, like suprises, angry etc. If you read Glass Mask you will now what i mean lol.
I can't believe it has been almost 20 freaking years since i know what is manga >.< basically one girl bring a vol to school, and everybody were like. OMG let me see bla bla bla... it was like if you have not read it thats mean you behind the trend lol. And soon everyone got manga fever, competing to buy manga to be the first.
My first shounen manga is Kungfu Boy Chinmi (tekken chinmi?)
