Hi, I've been lurking around this website for a few months now, but only recently did I really work up the nerve to finally make an account. LOL
Well, I've actually been a fan of anime ever since I was a child; you know, the standard stuff (Voltron, Robotech, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, etc.). Lately, my time devoted to anime took a significant back seat to other, more pressing matters, such as school, and now that I'm going into a graduate program in Biology with the aspirations of getting into medical school, I'm not exactly sure how much time I'll still be devoting to it. However, my passion for anime has recently been piqued once again (mostly due to this website, actually), and I hope to increase my admittedly limited anime repertoire enough to make somewhat of a contribution to this website (at the very least as an active member).
The reason why I put drama, comedy and romance as my three favorite genres of anime is because I feel those are the three most basic components of a show/movie/etc. Sci-fi, horror, mystery, etc. wouldn't be nearly as effective without any of these aspects, in my opinion (drama moreso than comedy or romance). As a result, I tend to be fairly lenient when it comes to the shows I watch. I can forgive a flimsy story, sloppy animation, and crummy sound if the series knows how to give great and likeable characters (regardless of whether they're good or evil) that are able to deliver on any of these genres.
Tl;dr - Just give me a show with good characters, and I'm happy. :) I'm always free for any recommendations or adds, so feel free to talk to me; I won't bite TOO hard. =P
