I just did this because I needed to occupy my time somehow... =u=

Anyways, I was a little curious, to all my potential mangaka brethren out there. What got you to try and create manga? .-.
I'll start off, just for the heck of it...
Yes I know this is highly unlikely and sound like something from a storyline plot, but it really did happen, I swear...! D<

For me, I think it was nearly 2-3 years ago when it all began. At that time I was about 14-15. I had drawn before and my love of anime/manga were growing as strong as my love for gaming. =u=
I'd already been writing since I was a kid, but my drawing skills were.......well...lets just say, at that time I sucked. =__= Badly...
Now that I think about it, I did used to create a comic with a friend of mine back when I was in elementary school. I still remember...it's a good feeling to get fans... =u= Though I still sucked back than too! XD
Anyways, I'm just doing random things, no path in life, really nothing to do with my life and no path, and in a couple of more years I'd have to go find something I want to do with my life...such a dark time. X___X AND THAN...As if suddenly some supernatural being had known a way I can use my talent for writing, it gave me a shining light of opportunity!
From a girl who I had a crush on, (>_> What? I'm a guy...we're allowed to have crushes too...) I saw one of her mini-comics. Even though it was just a sketch, I liked it...And than I didn't think of what I did next. X__x;;
I just, well, sort of asked...But not like:

'Nonchalantly I asked, "Hey, these are good...Lets create manga together." I held out my hand, waiting to see if she would accept...'

Nope...It was more like:

'After reading through the comic-strip, I couldn't contain myself. I stood up without warning, as if about to attack. "<name>, lets create manga together!" I said it a little loudly, because I was so excited. I sort of calmed down, and awaited eagerly for her answer...'

Honestly, thinking back now, I think I may have scared her a little...Now that I think about it, I wonder if she mistook it as coercion? Because she agreed pretty easily... ._.

A little while later, we started creating manga...We still are. ^u^

Cool! I started manga because they looked so cool...I started two, one 1-2 yrs back(that sucked so badly) and two a couple months ago ( not bad, but kinda messed up). I never finished them, so I stick to just drawing now...

I'm a good writer, love to write magical and sad story.
I'm also a pretty good drawer, I draw anime character too.
So those combine together are perfect.
I love writing and drawing anime a lot.
