When I'm not occupied with stuff or squealing about cute guinea pigs, I turn hikikomori-mode and try to keep up with anime and manga. Not too shabby. eh? Just like everyone else, Sailor Moon got me into the squishy anime lovin'; Akira was my first anime love. (Six years old. Pleasant memories!) And I'm also self-teaching myself Japanese. そうですね!
I don't really have a favorite; I watch whatever interests me. But an absolute love is anything horror and psychological. Adventure, mecha and historical I can do. Comedy? Romance? Slice of life? I may proceed with some skeptical caution, but I'm open-minded with anything.
