I am a librarian who reads too much manga.
I started reading manga in the late 1980s, when Viz first started putting out manga in comic book format. Somewhere I have a box of old issues of Mai the Psychic Girl and Area 88. I missed the early part of the manga wave in the US, but stumbled across Sailor Moon and Rurouni Kenshin and started collecting manga again. I mostly read shoujo, but I enjoy the occasional shonen series now and then.
