Do you like Pokemon, DBZ, or Yu-Gi-Oh? If you do, I think we'll get along very well.
Besides those classics, my favorite genres are comedy, yuri, slice of life, and fantasy. In general, I'm not a fan of anything too serious. I simply enjoy watching shows with likable characters, good art, and lots of comedy.
I follow anime sales every season. Someanithing.com is the best anime sales site I know of. It is managed by a MAL user named Jmal. If you are interested in how much money a certain anime made (or will make), this is the place to go.
