In all my years of watching anime (WAY to much to admit) I've developed certain tastes and likings, but also a tolerance, which helps me watch an anime, notice its flaws and watch it anyway. And so, the epic, tear-jerking Clannad After Story, which takes us to a whole new dimension of experience was watched by me completely, even though the art and conventional setting of season 1 made me twitch at some points.
Rozen Maiden & Le Portrait de Petit Cosette - 2 anime, that are unique like none other, but have one thing in common: The male protagonist and a doll(-ish) female. Never seen a better story setting, seriously. Once you have a concept like that, you can build a beautiful collage of music, art and plot and pour emotions like none other into it.
Death Note. Classic. Must I even mention how superior, how morally-questioning, how psychologically- challenging this anime is? I don't think so, at least not to anyone, who's already watched it. Haven't you? Then what are you waiting for!
Hayate no Gotoku. Riiight. All of us have this one movie/show/anime/song, that technically is no work of art, but somehow, we feel emotionally tied to it. That's Hayate for me. I have no idea why, but I feel strongly sentimental about it. Maybe it was watched at a time in my life, when I was especially vulnerable to emotions, and felt tied with the show, and it's wide variety of characters?
Maybe it was the really long run-time. It's true, that the longer the show lasts, the stronger you feel about it and the closer you become to the characters. Especially when you're watching it while it's still being aired. Oh well. Hayate is just MY anime, and something I will always cherish and look back to with a smile, like a warm, summer memory.
Nana This anime revealed all my soft, girly, shoujou-loving parts, which existed without me even knowing about them. It's hard to put into words how this anime made me feel... I'd say "go watch it yourself", but I'm aware, that Nana is something you either love and cry over, or hate and drop after 2 episodes. I guess I can say, that this anime so deeply embedded in my soul, that it partially made who I am today and changed my point of view on certain matters.
