I started watching anime a few weeks before I turned 20, a bit less than 2 years ago when I wrote this. I have pretty broad tastes, but I favor stories with romance and action. My interests are not limited to anime, but they are pretty much limited to stories in general.
Before I started watching anime I spent a great deal of time reading western fantasy or sci fi novels. My favorites being the Lord of the Rings and the Wheel of Time. I have only a minor interest in games, since I find that more often than not their stories are nowhere near interesting enough to make them worth the effort.
I have read a fair few visual novels, and generally find them to be a superior form of media. My favorites being FSN/MLA and Little Busters. If I had to choose a single favorite anime it would be Angel Beats, but I think MLA was better than it, though this is largely because it had so much time, and comparing different forms of media is rarely fair.
Despite how much I love anime and stories in general, I enjoy discussing the stories I liked even more.
A lot of my favorite music has come from anime.
Specifically, Ichiban no Takaramono My song and Brave song from Angel Beats! I loved 'This is my road' from Guin Saga and 'secret base' from Ano Hana and Yakusoku from episode 20 of Idolmaster as well. Thats not all of the songs I have come to love due to anime, but it is my favorites.
