I have been watching a lot of anime before, but now mostly stick to manga because... it is always interesting to read original stories and I can stop reading anytime and continue later same day(same practice is annoying with 25min series) :D
Also a lot of awesome manga was not or never gonna be animated anyways.
In rare cases anime is also censored(like Ichigo Mashimaro or KissxSis). But thanks to anime I have learned few hundreds spoken Japanese words. I still love certain anime adaptaions mentioned in favorites(and some more). I like many animes from Shinbo Akiyuki a lot!
And J-Pop music too!
