Eh~ Where do I start? Well, *twist!* I'm not saying anything~
Okay, enough with the annoying jokes. I'm just a teenager addicted to manga and anime in general. To be honest, anything with a good story, setting, and characters is enough to get me going, including movies and especially books. There really isn't anything I won't read, so long as it fits the requirements. But, I'm a bit biased in a way that there has to be a balance between the three; again, plot, characters, and setting. Being sort of hot headed to these things, I get really nerved when either the animation studio and/or the author ruins a good story by doing so.
Authors that merely do just ecchi stuff to appeal to the majority of male readers irritate me if the story isn't interesting at all (not that I have anything against the genre itself). Likewise, although Gosick has a good setting (Victorian era, which I LOVE, next to Steampunk), Kujo pissed me off incredibly for being made clueless to completely obvious facts, which in turn Victorique must explicitly state for him to understand. I usually dislike harem based stories, but I love Clannad simply because Tomoya was given such great character structure, unlike Rito from To-Love-Ru, Touma from Toaru Majutsu no Index (but I love the rest of the character cast), and Ichika from IS: Infinite Stratos (but I loved the mecha ideas Izuru Yumizuru thought of).
Well, that was more about my preferences than my life's background.
