I'll read or watch anything. Romance is my favorite genre. Action, sports, fantasy, futuristic...all of it is good. I don't care how old or new something is; animation style will not dissuade me from watching something. Of course I do enjoy beautiful animation. Redline was stunning. Endings are the most important part of anime and manga, to me at least. If everything was nearly perfect, but the ending was awful (left things too unresolved, choosing the wrong love interest, wrong characters dying, etc), then I will most likely rate the anime or manga as ½ a star. What else am I reasonably supposed to do when you give me something like the ending of Berserk? Plus everyone ignoring Griffith’s narcissistic personality and thinking he was actually a good guy worthy of following upset me. But even that is relatively minor compared to leaving the viewer with that massacre of an ending. I still enjoy Berserk though; I will watch it again occasionally just to experience the whirlwind of emotions it elicits.

And to close, two of the greatest mangakas of all time: Mitsuru Adachi and Kouji Seo. I love almost everything they create, even the rollercoaster ride of highs and lows that will inevitably be part of their stories.

Also, what shows did you used to see in the top 100? I certainly think there's a lot that shouldn't be there, although I think there are also a number that certainly deserve their spot. I'm glad that anime-planet allows more than one anime to hold the same rank; it'd really suck if it didn't.

Ok awesome, I look forward to that list! I'm sure a lot of people still know about cowboy bebop, but personally I haven't seen ranma 1/2, more because of its length than because of its age. I did just recently watch Legend of the Galactic Heroes, though, which was amazing. What are some of your favorite shows?

On another note, i notice you say that you like romance anime. I honestly haven't seen too many. But it seems you've seen quite a few shows. Would you mind rec'ing some romance anime? And please PLEASE do not say Toradadora, which I dislike about as much as steins;gate. xD

hah. Ok, well I'm glad that I wasn't the only one who had that same experience! xD I wonder why so many other people had such a good time with it, then? How many of them gave it 5/5 just cause everyone else did? How many gave it that high rating because they haven't seen much and don't have much to compare to? This makes me think of madoka, which imo is also overrated, although somehow better than steins;gate.
