It's all in the title, what kinds of things do you love in anime/manga? Are you into martial arts, drama, thrillers, romance, gunfights? Feel free to share some anime/manga, but if you're going have spoilers make sure you use the spoiler tab!

I'd have to say more than anything I love the martial art type. Especially ones that deal with Samurai or Ninja. I also love the psychological thrillers that are super intense. Here's a few that fall into that category for me:

-Naruto
-Death Note
-Samurai Champloo

I have to say, I enjoy something I can relate to.
Or something that inspires me, hence the reason I always watch anime with 'struggle' or emotional stress.
It's eye opening, and others may frown upon me for being motivated and relating to completely fictional works.

Not at all, haha. Naruto's character and personality has inspired me in things that actually matter in my life. Some may think it is lame, as you say, but I feel that if it's something you can relate to, and something that inspires or motivates you. Then that's what matters regardless of people think.

Im kind of a saddo :]
Here's a list of my strange preferences (some are normal I think :]):

- I like demons and stuff and some (kinda) dark animes (Uraboku, Kuroshitsuji)
- I like watching typical shoujos (hehehe)
- BISHOUNEN O___O (I watch so much anime that has bishounen overloads in them) so unrealistic but so good o_o
- Random evil sadistic good looking bad guys, along with the not so good looking ones (heh)
- Anime where main character has to actually work hard to achieve something, and has to go through many challenges to reach their goal (one of my more normal preferences)
- Heartwarming anime (like kobato and Ikoku Meiro no Croisee ;D)
- I love like the random comedy with the random kinda chibi like faces and stoof
- Inspirational anime (:

I like really down to earth realistic emotional stories but I also like the regurgitated, overused story lines in a lot of anime (for some strange reason)... Also when I first got into anime and didn't understand the concept of the genres I watched a few shounen animes where they end up with a harem at the end. I kinda like watching those once in a while :}

I like the fact that anime can be relatable and inspirational and can also be supernatural and random and can take you to another world which is what makes it so enjoyable!


I might update my weird list some other time if more comes to mind (hehe) :] This whole list also applies to manga too. Except most of the manga I read is shoujo or has demons and mystery in (:

Let's see.. I like something mysterious and crime solving types..
and also action- adventure shounen.. It can be either Fantasy or Sci-fi.
I'm more focused on the story line

It has to have a compelling story. Characters can't be one dimensional.

The characters have to have a personality or I can't even stay focused.
I also really love the anime that really know how to build up the suspense and leave you on the edge of your seat.
I also seem to prefer animes with good fight scenes, a lot of Shounen, and comedies.

In short, it's gotta be funny, and it's gotta have blood.

Except for Fairy Tail. Even though everyone seems to have rock-hard skin and no blood what-so-ever, it remains high on my list of fave animes/mangas.

As long as it a good strong story to it I will watch almost anything (the more complex the better).
That said I will forgive alot if it as a decent giant robot in it.

Supernatural Anime and Manga. I just love it when they show their ability, it's one of the reason why i really like One Piece. One thing that is an absolutely must have for me to like it is comedy though. If there is no comedy, it just bore me. Kinda like Naruto. I really like the first part when he was a kid but the 2nd part is pretty boring. But Kurama and the Juubi are awesome so i still watch and read it.

What I like about anime is the facial expression/caricature that they use which is not possible with real life humans.

I also like the sci-fi and fantasy themes in an anime.
- Fairy Tail
- Haruhi Suzumiya
- Naruto
- Death Note
- Fullmetal Alchemist
I really like the concept of Sword Art Online, but the characters and content don't engage me.


If the anime's non-fantasy type, like it's set in our world, then I prefer parody or comedy types like:
- Ouran
- Lucky Star


I despise drama in anime or real life TV shows... unless the drama has a really really strong/unique lead character like "My Little Monster" or "Pet Girl of Sakurasou".
Drama animes with weak/superficial characters like "Space Brothers" or "Say I love You" are the types that I find boring.

Those moments where I have my creepy otaku smile on. Either when someone dies or when there's some romance scene when they kiss for the first time. Just those shocking/exciting scenes

The thing is I'm into so many different types of things that it all depends on how much enjoyment/entertainment each anime gives. Although typically I'm most interested into Romances, Slice of life, Action, Comedy. Although some of my favourites animes are meccha animes (Gurren Lagann, Eureka 7, Gundam Wing, Full Metal Panic! series) I'm actually not that into the meccha genre.
