I prefer slice of life, sports, mecha, sci-fi/fantasy, and on rare occasions romance shoujo anime. Like most people, I got into anime with Sailor Moon and Dragonball. I'll never forget the colorful gradients that made me yell at my parents to go back, back, back! This was well before I started school, and I got re-introduced with toonami. I've been hooked on anime ever since. マンガ
As for manga, I first saw Oh! My Goddess at a bookstore when I was probably in fourth grade. It's a good thing that wasn't my first manga, being adult-themed and all. Fast forward, and I entered my sixth year where my friend introduced me to the Fruits Basket series with her collection. I like manga, but can't afford them. And I wear glasses so reading online seems like a pain. I haven't read many manga since, but I'm thinking about trying it again.
