I don't remember whether Sailor Moon or Doraemon was my first anime. My cousins gave me copies of anime in VHS (I'm so thankful) and I watched them over and over again. Thanks to them, I was also introduced to Ghibli with My neighbor Totoro (which my mom erased it with some other TV programs T__T), Castly in the sky and Only Yesterday. My neighbor sometime lends VHS of Ranma 1/2 and Chibi Mamuko-chan, so I watched some episodes of those. The most memorable anime that grew up with me as I watched it weekly were Ninja Rantarou and Mahoujin Guru Guru. I read some manga when I was at the end of my primary school journey but I didn't have the means to search anime to watch of my own accord until I got into high school, got my own computer and a friend recommended me to watch Tsubasa Chronicle.
I was young when I joined MAL, even I, find my own ratings of anime inconsistent. I would have wanted to provide you a better portrait of my taste but changing the scores can be a tiring process, not to mention that I might not remember some crucial elements of the anime if I want to re-rate it. I also don't follow MAL's rating system/definition for no particular reason. I used to think that I wouldn't give a score below 5 because I should have dropped it way sooner than completing it (5 being an outrageous score if it appear in an anime's page as the overall score). I would give a very high score if I judge that the anime deserves it even if the genre, for example, isn't my cup of tea. In other words, I might actually love an anime with a 8 better than a series I gave 9 despite its flaws. Talk about inconsistency.
You shouldn't give too much credit to the MAL community anime's rating. After all, it is questionable that a hentai sequel (which only released one episode) got into top 150 out of so many good series (15/06/2014). MAL community's rating is a joke, I find people FIGHTING over it are really ridiculous.
If you came to my profile, I guess you saw me in the forum? You might realized that English isn't my mother tongue, not even my second language. I'm sorry if I messed up the language. I do try my best to reread my post sometimes so that I don't make any silly mistake that I would find stupid as well. I'm also not a good person at expressing myself/formulating a good opinion and my writing sucks in all the 3 languages I can write with.
My manga list will remain private because I grew tired of updating it. My favorite genre is Josei, but the genre I read the most is Shoujo. Feel free to recommend good manga, especially good seinen romance.
I don't watch dub anime, especially english dub. I actually don't like to watch dub for any kind of watchable thing (like movies and tv series), even if I grew up watching dub. I also try to not look at the subs when I watch anime because some of them are so liberal, ugh.
My profile picture features Ayumi from Honey X Clover and my forum picture is Hagu from HxC as well.
Want me to recommend you an anime? Go watch Yomigaeru Sora because it deserves some more attention.
Btw, I will be grateful if you can tell me what is this anime:
It's a old TV series I watched before 2005.
It's a kiddie anime where the main characters are two brothers (one goes to elementary school) and their childhood female friend. One day, they received a parcel through the mail and when they opened it, there were 5 (I think) small superheroes-ish figurines. They turns out to be alive and they fight against some (small) creatures who want to annihilated the Earth (I think). The antagonists are mostly in form of a spider. The figurines are all male and their outfit reminds me of Saint Seiya/Iron man. The figurines always have to fake they are toys and only the three MC know they are living creatures.
Fall 2015 series I'm the most hyped for:
2. Lupin III (2015)
3.One Punch Man

Series I don't think they will have another season but definitely deserve one:
Seirei no Moribito
Saint Seiya the Lost Canvas WorkingGranted!
Hyouka ( a movie will be perfect )
Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince
HAIKYUU!! <3 Worth reading even if you watched the anime, Furudate-sensei is amazing!!
