My first manga was Tenchi Muyo! I loved the show when I was younger and when I saw the book I begged my mom to buy it for me. I think I was about eight or nine at the time so that was about 1998. I got every volume as they came out and started to compare them with the anime. To this day I still cherish those manga more than all the others that I have now, even though I've graduated to bigger and better things.
