I started watching anime way back with Sailor Moon, Digimon, Escaflowne, etc... If you can really call them anime haha. But it wasnt until around 2002 that I started to watch anime seriously.
I generally watch more serious series like Death Note and Ergo Proxy and stay away from the 'cutsey', hyper types because... well... they annoy me greatly... but I do like funny, silly anime too like FLCL and Excel Saga XD
Also a big part of anime that I love is the music <3
My favourite soundtracks are from Hellsing, Cowboy Bebop, Death Note and Ghost in the Shell. Japanese music in general is an obsession of mine, and listen to it a lot, mainly Jrock. So I'm on AnimeNfo Radio a lot XD -> http://animenfo.com/radio/playing.php
