Feel free to recommend me something you think I'd like, or comment/message me about anything you want to mention or talk about.
My anime/manga likes and dislikes:
I like witty comedy, or comedy that depends on character personalities and relationships. (Skip Beat, Ore no Imouto, Kodomo no Jikan, K-On, Lucky Star)
I dislike slapstick, corniness, ridiculousness/absurdity, silliness, and most parodies. (Level E, Negima, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Sora no Otoshimono, Yuru Yuri, Baka to Test)
I like romance that actually develops, even if it's just subtle. (Toradora, Ef - a tale of memories, Skip Beat, Spice and Wolf, Bakemonogatari, Kimi ni Todoke)
I dislike romances where the relationships are superficial, don't develop or play much role in episodes, are unrealistic, or where the couple are too kind and proper with each other. At least make one of them sarcastic or something so that they aren't so disgustingly bland and make me cringe... (Ah! My Goddess, Air, Elfen Lied)
I like moe characters that are so cute and funny ya just want to hug 'em like a cute puppy. (K-On, Usagi Drop, Lucky Star, Ore no Imouto, Mitsudomoe, Toradora)
I dislike the kind of moe based on a high-pitched, squeaky voice, excited, doll-like child (a.k.a. Mickey Mouse personalities) or goody-two-shoes (totally pure-hearted, overly-friendly, naive, shallow personality) or one-dimensional characters. (Ah! My Goddess, Sora no Otoshimono, Yuru Yuri, Samurai Girls, Baka to Test)
I like ecchi/hentai, but it's not sexy if it's just boobs, panties or sex. To be sexy, there needs to be romance, cuteness, or some sort of believable, unforced situation, and the characters need to have personality.
I like strong-willed, smart, witty main protagonists (especially when a single male is the lead) who acts how I want him/her to act (or at least take understandable actions) so that I can sympathize with him/her and put myself in their shoes. (Spice and Wolf, Usagi Drop, Death Note, Kodomo no Jikan, Kanon, The World Only God Knows, Eve no Jikan, Toradora, Angel Beats, Skip Beat)
I dislike weak, crybaby, indecisive, cowardly, annoying protagonists (especially a male lead). (Gantz, Kanokon, Elfen Lied, Welcome to the NHK!, Chobits, To LOVE-Ru)
Story Themes and Styles:
I like stories where nobody believes in the protagonists' abilities or worthiness and they face nothing but scorn, ridicule, and pity, but throughout the story are constantly impressing everyone unexpectedly, changing minds, and winning their praise and affection, and becoming heroes. This also makes for good Tsundere characters who start out as skeptics but are slowly seduced into dropping their tough attitudes. (Skip Beat!, Chihayafuru, Great Teacher Onizuka, Zero no Tsukaima, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari, The World Only God Knows)
I dislike forced drama, such as someone getting angry and running off due to a misunderstanding, unwilling to listen to an explanation, or other instances where characters do stupid things to create dramatic situations. (Elfen Lied, Gantz, Myself; Yourself, Welcome to the NHK!)
I dislike stories that jump around a lot, conveniently leave out details and explanations in order to surprise you later (details that the characters would know, but only you are kept in the dark), and try to tell many stories at once in order to weave them together as if that is supposed to make up for all the lack of details and lack of focus that make up the majority of the story. (Baccano, Durarara, Darker than Black)
I dislike shounen-style fighting and shounen-style heroes. Your yelling and grunting while you fight does not make it more dramatic... Along these same lines, I don't think I'd like very many Mecha shows either. (I avoid these shows, so I don't have many great examples)
