How did you learn about anime? My two step cousins told me about it actually when I asked
what they were drawing. They were actually drawing anime characters and still do a lot.
And how about manga? I learned about manga when I saw that an anime had told me who made
the manga form of the series.
Age, how did it happen, whatever. Well I started watching anime (when I knew it was anime)
at age 12 and I got the series from the library. Though when I didn't know it was anime I
was like four when I first saw an anime but I just thought it was a cartoon at the time.
First anime? Not knowing about anime yet was Pokémon then when I knew it was an anime it
was Vampire Knight.
First manga? Vampire Knight
First cosplay? Grell Sutcliff from Black Butler
First con? I haven't been to one yet

~ I learned about anime when I saw this random anime clip on YouTube and watched it. Then
I ended up looking for all the episodes and yeah.
~ Actually, I learned what a manga was because in the anime I was watching, this character
was reading mangas A LOT. 
~ Uh...I was like 11 when I started watching anime but I pronounced "anime" differently.
So instead of "an-i-may" I pronounced it "an-im" (with silent e sound so...I was freaking
stupid). I FIRST started with Vocaloids (not an anime but it got me SOMEWHERE) and
listened to them. Next thing you know, I end up watching a real anime. Forgot what it was
though...maybe "Lucky Star" I dunno. 
~ First anime was....I'd go with Pokèmon, but I didn't know it. I thought it was just
some cartoon. Lucky Star was when I knew.
~ First manga....I can't find any! Like maybe online but not really...
~ I haven't worn a cosplay yet. I might go as Hungary from Hetalia. (I'm putting it
together, not buying)
~ Haven't gone to one...YET!
I'm freaking amazing...~
 
 
Look at dem sparkles~

How did you learn about anime?
My sister showed me D.N Angel and I watched it with her. She drew anime as well.

And how about manga?
She told me a way to read anime, so I was curious.

Age, how did it happen, whatever. 
Nine years old, I was always curious to how and what my older sister, a wonderful artist
was drawing. Turns out they were anime (original) characters and I asked what they were
and she told me, and that's when she asked me if I wanted to watch some.

First anime?
D.N Angel or Sailor Moon, old

First manga?
The worst thing to do is throw yaoi at a ten year old when she barely knows about sex and
gay guys. But I loved it anyway.
Junjou Romantica, and I still read it today.

First cosplay?
Allen Walker - D. Grayman

First con?
Phoenix, Arizona.

How did you learn about anime?
I used to looooove Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon and Ultimate Muscle when I was a kid. 
And how about manga?
I found it at the public library and used to stay there and read for hours while my mom
was at work when I was young. c:
Age, how did it happen, whatever. 
Pff, as soon as I was old enough to watch t.v. I just really fell in love and always
fan-girled over the characters. (/.) Ofc, adult swim added to my love of anime since iv'e
always been pretty nocturnal. (Bleach and Inuyasha at night FTW)
You had to like it from somewhere! 
From t.v, that's all. Once  I had an internet connection I just kept watching more. 
First anime?
Probably Sailor Moon or Pokemon.
First manga?
Inuyasha
First cosplay?
Hatsune Miku from Vocaloid. (kinda counts)
First Con?
Umm. In 2011.

Hi :D I learned about anime thanks to TV and my sis, who happened to be an otaku at a
young age. When I grew up a little, we went to visit our family in Japan and we were taken
to this Manga/games/cd shop called Tsutaya and there was my first encounter with mangas. I
was 7 that time by the way. I just picked up a random book and...yeah. We came by every
week and indulged ourselves with mangas ^q^

I don't remember well what it was, but probably pokemon. My first manga..? that, I don't
remember. I haven't cosplayed any characters yet (aww) and for cons..nope.

Well I learnt about anime through my Aunt when I was in fifth grade, she is only
12 years older than me so she was like an older sister. One day she asked me if I have
even heard of a show called Naruto, and I said "Eww! I hate that show!" But that was only
because I never watched it, but I remember flipping through channels when I was in first
grade and I saw the character I would later know to be Sasuke sitting in a tree. But then
I spent the weekend at my Grandmas which was were she lived and we watched Blood+, then I
started to watch Naruto and Bleach more regularly and pretty soon it became my life.
Haha!

-My first anime is Pokemon, but my mom made me stop watching after it after the episode
with Shift Tree she thought they were saying something else. Then I started to watch
Naruto!

-My first manga was Shonen Jump, It had tons of stuff in it Bleach, One Piece, Naruto,
Hikaru No Go, etc 

-Well for Halloween in 6th grade I dressed as Kiba Inuzuka and carried my dog around
because he looked like Akamaru. But that was before I even knew what Cosplay was. 

-My first con was in 2013 Anime Milwaukee. Best experience of my life.
