I love anime, and manga but I usually enjoy chilling and watching rather than reading.  I have an addiction to the supernatural and the unusual so typically I like shows which aren't purely realist(or realistic completely with wierd unrealistic beat up comedy parts).  I'm a little turn off by manga unless the story is compelling, but I pretty much get around to watching everything.  I can usually find something good in almost every show.

Wow. So thanks very much for the post script there. I'll probably still watch ZnT at some point, but I'll certainly move it down the priority list now.

As for GTO... well, I won't give you the lo-o-ong version, but I didn't really appreciate anything it had to offer. For starters, I'm not sure it made me laugh even once. Just not my brand of humour at all. Secondly, characters like Onizuka (or Captain Tylor as another example) are a pet hate of mine. I don't mind characters being stupid or reckless, but I don't like the God Mode that Onizuka seemed to have which meant he never really faced any consequences for doing stupid stuff. I also find the whole "live life your own way, believe in your ideals, and everything will work out great" message to be patronising and generally wrong. The show is meant to be inspirational and funny, and Onizuka is meant to be a guy you can get behind. Because the anime failed on all three counts in my opinion, I ended up hating it. I just found it long and intensely boring. Unlike shows such as Shakugan no Shana and Ai Yori Aoshi, I can completely understand why people like GTO. For me, though, it was a pain to sit through. Think it was the first anime I really disliked.

But that's enough from me. Thanks once again for the follow-up, and best of luck with your application for reviewership!

You have to register for the forums, since they're not integrated into the main site. It's a pain in the ass that trips up a lot of people.

Well,  if you found Louise annoying but still enjoyed ZnT, I'm certain it's worth me giving it a try, as that was really my main concern about the show. Guess I'll add that one to the list as well :).

Thanks again. It's always good to get recs from someone who's seen so much anime.

Thank you kindly for the recommendations. I've had a look at them and added most to my Want to Watch list (a couple were already there), although I'm hesitant about Zero no Tsukaima. It seems that many people who like it are keen on Rie Kugimiya's tsundere, which I don't personally care for (only reason I'm watching Toradora is because ThePatches [who, it appeas is a mutual friend] persuaded me to). I was wondering if you still think it's well worth watching, bearing in mind I couldn't really stand Shakugan no Shana. I understand ZnT is well-recieved, it's just I've not heard any arguments for it that don't revolve around teh Rie in some way.

Oh, and I'm sure don't need to tell you this, based on your avatar, but I feel like saying it anyway. Persona 4 is awesome and win :)
