To me any good piece of art has to have either a intellectual or an emotinal impact, a great piece has both. The same goes for anime, music and just about everything.
I like anime movies, but can't ever seem to choose which ones to get!
Mostly I listen to classic rock music, I have a vast music collection as that's my real passion. Examples of bands I like would be: Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and The Doors etc.
I like to try out new things and that's what led me to anime, I love a good story.
