I'll basically watch anything and everything (except Shounen Ai/Yaoi) as long as it has a decent storyline. Whilst I search for Comedy, I've taken liking to the mainstream lose-train-win plot circle. That hasn't prevented me from being astonished by Psy-Thriller productions like NGE, Steins;Gate or Higurashi series for that matter. My personal favorite being Gintama- I have yet to discover something that could beat this unrivaled comedic masterpiece.
My first long run anime happens to be Bleach followed by FMA, by this time I had already been victimized by its dependency. I caught my bad habit of finishing 12-24 episode series straight near 2011 winter. Unfortunately, the piece of earth I live on, lacks the availability of Japanese Manga. Also, As far as manga concerns me, reading them off my Laptop or Mobile's screen is just not my cup of tea. With an exception of Gantz which caught my interest after finishing the incomplete anime adaptation which I ended up completing ironically. Note: I'm planning to buy a tablet solely for this purpose in the near future. Update: I'm getting the hang of reading manga from the screen.
I still have a preference order though, subject to change w.r.t. hype, recommendations and my mood. Comedy>Action>Romance>Sci-Fi>World Domination(?)>Drama>Psychological=Thriller>Harem/Ecchi[decent plot]>Horror and the rest.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ ★ How I base my Ratings ★
10 - Loved the entire length, considers as Masterpiece. (Registers itself as one of my favorites) 9 - Something different/unique, wildly entertaining. (Almost nothing to complain)
8 - Liked most/all of it, albeit few constraints restricted the best. (Well above average, what I'd call a 'Good' show) 7 - Above average enjoyment, interesting every now and then. (Could have been a little more polished)
6 - Average enjoyment, tended to lose my attention often. (Too cliched or lacks power) 5 - Kept me bored entirely, but held hope for improvement.
4 - Something I wouldn't recommend to others. 3 - Waste of time, no substance at all.
2 and below - Haven't delivered this to any yet. Deliberately stayed away from series that might change this fact.
I would Recommend anything with 10, 9, 8 on my list.
I am an Asian and I indeed have had my share of Japanese culture fascination which lead me to learn its history and whatnot. But I'd love to visit Japan someday and learn about its culture in person, starting with cuisine of course!
