I've been an avid anime fan for the past 5 years now. The first anime I remember seeing was FLCL, back in 2006, and it got me really hooked. Fullmetal Alchemist, Initial D and Cowboy Bebop were some of the anime I started with.
Favourite genres (if I must specify so) are Suspense/Mystery, Action and Slice of Life. I'm generally wary of harem/romance-centered titles, mainly due to the insane number of mediocre series that are there of these types. Though I've had my bad experiences in these types, needless to say, some of most favourite anime (Honey and Clover, Nodame come to mind) are Romance- centered.
My favourite anime, well you can check out the list, but, if I must say so, would be Kara no Kyoukai, Hagane on Renkinjutsushi, Ghost in the Shell, Monster & Planetes.
Well, that's about it!! happy watching!! :)
