I'm an 18 yr old senior in high school. I was first exposed to anime by my uncle who was and still is a die hard Dragon Ball Z fan. My first anime ever was Sailor Moon and even though magic girl themes annoy me now, I still cant give SM less than 5 stars.
I like dark anime with dark themes, dark characters, and art. Sothis is also completely right. Most of the anime I've seen and love is actually shonen-ai ( I didn't really notice until you mentioned it). I also favor reverse harem ( I'm still waiting on the Best Reverse Harem poll).
Wow! I haven't updated this in a long while. I'm still eighteen, still a senior and I still love anime, obviously! High School is almost over and I'm finding myself having more and more leisure time. So much that I have gotten into a few recent releases of anime:
I LOVE Vampire Knight. It's my favorite release of this season. I loved the manga from the start and the anime (even with its variations) is really good. I love seeing my favorite scenes comne to life.
And in reverse harem fan-girl fashion, I really like Neo Angelique Abyss. The guys are hot and the plot is actually interesting.
I'm in absolute love with Junjou Romantica. I'm going to buy all the books on Saturday. There are others but none as important as these.
Still, if anybody has any recommendations for an anime, I'm welcoming them all.
