I don't have any particular favorite genre in fact I can and will watch just about anything and enjoy it with the exception of yaoi.
I'm always up for a conversation about anime ^_^
I started watching anime about halfway through my senior year in highschool and I graduated in 2012 so I probably started around Oct-Dec 2011. I started seasoning (watching airing anime) Fall 2012.
Before I really got into anime I had seen anime as a kid such as Yu-Gi-Oh!, Pokemon, Megaman (I re-watched the Megaman series), some Digimon, and some DBZ, but I didn't know those were anime until I looked into it :P I would have to say that Full Metal Alchemist is what did it; it was the anime that started me on my anime journey and is my all-time fave to this day.
I served 4 years in the US Navy where I worked as a Sonar Technician feel free to ask me questions about it, but if you ever want an accurate representation of what it's like to live on a Destroyer watch or read Zipang!
FMA/FMAB are my top favorite anime, I think they are equally amazing. Original Greed is also my top favorite anime character and Maes Hughes is my role model.
When it comes to my favorites:
For my favorite anime, they are in order and each one of them mean quite a bit to me due to that fact that each one changed my life in a fairly significant way, for that reason they almost never change. The same will be true for future additions and my fave manga as well.
For my favorite characters the top 4 are in order with Greed and Maes Hughes meaning the most. The rest haven't been ordered and change every now and then.
Finally for people, that list is a clusterfuck, just know that Miyano Mamoru is my #1 for subbed and nano is my top j-rock/pop singer.
Apparently I missed my 100th anime benchmark :( To bad I didn't join myanimelist when I first got into anime :/
My plan to watch is mainly for anime not aired, but coming out soon; I have a separate list on a word document for every other anime I want to watch ;)
I follow randomc.net
In general 7 is my average score anything that falls under wasn't very good in my opinion, although, some 4s and 5s/6s were still enjoyable.
Some of my other favorite characters include:
Nine, Mirai Nikki
Benten, Uchouten Kazoku
Hikage, Senran Kagura
Kido, Mekakucity Actors
Aki, Yugioh 5D's
Kanae Touichirou, Maria Holic
This may sound weird/stalkerish, but I'm found of reading other people's comment conversations so if I comment/mention them don't get freaked out. §
For no real reason I took a long break from logging in on Mal between Oct, 4 2018 to Feb, 29 2020 even though I still used the site bi-daily :P
