I seem to like all kinds of "forbidden love" stories. I totally love yuri, but not because it's hot for two girls to be together or anything; I love everything involved in it. From becoming friends, noticing the desire to be "more than friends", the suspense and uncetainty of what to do in such a situation, that awkward period where girl A realizes she actually loves girl B but girl B doesn't notice so they end up doing embarassing things together (like changing clothes together at school or bathing together and so on...), the big confession (which usually requires a period of time before a proper response can be given), sweet sweet fruition, the inevitable intimate part of the relationship which both parties are usually inexperienced and confused about what to do lol (and I'm talking about the consummation of true love here! Not mindless, meaningless sex), figuring out whether or not they should let their peers know about their love, whether or not they should tell their parents about it O_O, thinking about what they should do about marriage, and any other obstacles that may oppose the lovers. ... ahh yeahhh... I love that, like, alllll of that lol ;D
I'm not exclusively a fan of yuri, though. I do enjoy all of the more popular and common genres as well lol.
And you would think I would like yaoi for all the same reasons that I like yuri but, nope! Sorry to any yaoi fans but that actually just grosses me out... I'm not bashing yoai or it's fans here, I don't criticize people for their interests, it's just my personal preference. After all, considering how much I like yuri and all that, how could I judge people who like yaoi.
I am extremely open-minded and very understanding and most of all, REALLY laid-back. There is literally almost nothing that gets me angry past the point of simple irritation, but unfortunately there are even less things that can get me really happy (one of these things is anime/manga if you couldn't tell lol). I basically feel apathetic towards just about everything else. But I am not some depressed emo or anything! I basically just kinda feel content with life, I guess.
Anyway, I'm open for suggestions and such. And now I would like to mention my #1 Anime and Manga for which I am prepared to buy almost anything that would support them/their producers:
For Anime, it is the Clannad Series (including the after story and everything lol). Absolutely amzing job on everything concerning the story. I even love the animation, art style, and the music... oh the music from this show... I want to own the OST sooo bad! Even the English voice acting was phenominal! I plan to watch it again in Japanese just to see how it is lol...
For Manga, it is definitely Girl Friends by Milk Morinaga. I absolutely LOVE everything about this manga: the comedy is great, the story is insanely well thought out and wonderful, and... geez! just everything about it is awesome! In fact, Girl Friends is the only thing I have EVER re-read/re-watched in my life. Usually, I hate doing something like that unless I'm showing the it to someone (which generally only aplies to anime anyway lol) but I got so caught up reminiscing about it more than a year later that I just ended up reading it again lol. I would do anything to get an anime made for Girl Friends! I want that to happen SO SO SO BAD!!! Continuing the manga would be awesome as hell too lol.
