Twelve years ago during a project on Japanese culture. I had to debate to the history teacher that anime and manga was a part of Japanese culture. I spent almost half the period debating before he gave in to let us do a project on anime and manga. Granted, we did absolutely no work until the night before, we wanted an excuse to watch anime and read manga as part of a project. This was before the anime boom in the early 2000s. Pokemon was what people thought was anime.

Where I lived, anime and manga wasn't all that popular. You might find some Robotech VHS at the local video store, and at Blockbuster, there were usually between eight to twelve anime VHS.

My brother. He was always reading stuff on the computer and I got curious and asked what it was. He showed it to me and convince me to read some. It was mostly shonen and ecchi/comedy stuff. Looking back it's like... bro! Why did you let little 11-year-old me read that! Haha. Also the first anime I watched was Elfen Lied because of him.

An anime I really liked had a crappy ending, so I read the manga and learned that there was more to the story

Anime was the "gateway drug" for me too, then Robotech comics which led me to Japanese manga, first translated into English, then in Japanese which I still read today.

One of my friends had picked up a book called Vampire Knight. IT looked awesome and I really wanted to try it! So i asked my friend if i could borrow it and i was hooked!!! THEN i found out it was connected to anime shows like Naruto and Sailor MooN! I thought what could be better~

because they don't go far enough in anime while hentai is too far. i enjoy a good fan service/harem manga with a ecchi edge to it

My cousin had subscribed to Shonen Jump and I decided to read one of the issues. I found it interesting to see that some of the anime shows I were watching then were in it and farther ahead. I also got interested in the series Tegami Bachi and so I started reading manga.

I was 11 Years old, and I was at my friends house who at the time was around 15. He had this pinkish & white Book laying on the floor. I asked him, what is that. He said Fruits & Baskets Volume 1. I was like cool so it looks like an anime, he said yes but its in black and white and you read it backwards, I was so shocked I read it in 20 minutes and have been hooked since :D
