I haven't been on here in months due to problems in real life, I had a flood and then pipes broke and ruined my floors and kitchen. Still don't have it fixed... And my boss got that horrible cryptolocker virus on my computer at work, so I wasn't online at all for over a month. So yeah, between having to fix my house and work I haven't had as much time for the things I enjoy. I have been watching anime and k dramas and playing otome games and reading regular fantasy/sci fi novels. But had to go cold turkey for a while there.
Yes, I am an adult woman who reads manga.
And Yes - I read a Lot :) and this list would be longer if it included all the manhwa webtoons as well as manga.

I have been writing an epic fantasy novel, "The Stone + The Feather" for more years than I'd like to admit and as I'm am an artist now starting doing it as a graphic novel as well. I originally came up with it while riding my horse in the woods as a kid.
My art site http://inzaratha.deviantart.com/gallery/
I have some other ideas I would like to make into graphic novels so I am currently working on learning how to use computer graphic art programs. I get held back by computer memory and time as I work a lot of hours full time and read a lot too. I do my best thinking while doing something else at the same time, like coming up with story ideas while riding, or listening to music, or doing artwork while watching shows. I'm an introvert and a lot better at writing and being online than I am with actually talking to people...
I am a big fan of Stargate SG 1 and Atlantis, and other sci-fi shows like Serenity/Firefly, Smallville, Supernatural, etc and love martial arts movies and medieval settings.
Interests include reading manga and novels, sci-fi and fantasy, martial arts, horses - equestrian, art, music, anime and movies, good food,
or anything with good looking guys fighting. :)
I have BA's from uni in both fine art and history. I especially like the Black Death and the Renaissance.
I have trained horses professionally,worked in a museum, taught horse sculpture in a museum, owned an art gallery, worked in a library and in schools.
For a career now, I work with troubled teens/ juvenile delinquents in a locked residential school- Think of it like Hogwarts meets reform school in the desert. with a tan, If all the kids were Slytherin...
I like to write, draw, read and explore places either mentally or psychically and spend a lot of time online cause I don't sleep and usually busy cause I have a brain that does not shut off. I also drink lots of coffee and tea.
My favorite authors are Tolkien, Tad Williams, Mercedes Lackey, Terry Goodkind, Terry Prachett and Ayn Rand, Edgar Allen Poe, Ray Bradury, Robert Frost.
Currently taking Korean karate - Kukyidou and Judo.
In the future I would like to learn to read and or speak Japanese and Korean but I'm not much of a speaker, even in English I'm better at writing than talking. But I would like to know the language, even if I never actually speak to a human in it. My second language is French. I enjoyed learning obscure languages like elvish or runes too. I'm strange because I will master something and then move on to something else and forget it completely sort of like math, I mean I never use it.
I listen to a lot of music. Favs include Nightwish, Apocalyptica, HIM, Versailles, Linkin Park,Within Temptation, Amorphis, A7x, Bach, the Gazette - metal, classic and celtic and visual kei I like music that is actually Good Musically.
My music radio http://www.last.fm/user/inzaratha

I actually started watching some anime and martial arts as a little kid cause my best friend was a half-Japanese boy with a talking pet crow, but he returned to Japan. (I know sounds like some weird manga but my life is weirder...) I got into it again later from fantasy / sci fi and then discovered 8 years ago or so I really enjoyed reading shoujo and a lot of others. It's the perfect blend of art and story and I'm addicted to manga. lol
I have a lot of series that I love reading, and I enjoying discussing chapters with people as the people irl that I know don't read what I read, hence online.
I read from a wide variety of manga. Mostly shoujo and josei but also seinen etc.
I prefer reading over watching, but when I watch anime my preferences are different from my reading ones, I prefer more action and supernatural or fantasy or mystery and slice of life to watch.
