I've been a fan of anime for over 16 years now, having seen a good number of anime franchises and notable titles both past and present. My biggest turn offs with anime titles are fan service heavy titles, moe pandering and the use of gratuitous violence and sex for shock value in an anime title.
For those curious with what I mean by "rainy day pile" in my anime list notes, these are titles I presently have in my physical stockpile which I have yet to watch through. Living out in the boonies kind of inconveniences me since I have a low data cap enforced by my wireless ISP. To get around this if I want to watch licensed anime titles, I buy up physical releases to watch at my leisure. I still download short or ongoing titles on the side, but not too heavily since I still need to watch how much data I download each month.
Don't be too surprised if I have a slim list for manga as I am more a viewer of anime than I am a reader of manga. I hardly read manga nowadays except in cases where I need to look through it to recall events from what I read from the past, though I may make an exception if I come across a manga title that has yet to be adapted into anime form.
