As an aspiring novelist with the eye of a screenwriter, I currently view anime and manga series from not only the audiences' standpoint, but as well the creators'. Unfortunately, that also means that I spend my free time—aside from watching anime and other television shows—writing, so I don't currently write reviews or give public recommendations. 

My interests have changed since I first created this account in 2009, so my "won't watch" list is not particularly accurate.

Drama

Mystery

Sc-fi

The most important factor to any story is character development:

This doesn't necessarily mean that the main focus needs to be on how the characters grow throughout the story, but rather, how they act upon their surroundings and how well their personalities shine through the artwork and animation. Take Haikyuu!! for example: I'm not a big fan of sports, and certainly not of volleyball. But the atmosphere was created by more than the "camera" angles, lighting, and sound— it was beauitifully established in every one of the characters, who are conveyed with the complexity of real people. Sure, there are a lot of exaggerations, but the characters have something that not a lot of series do: unique personality traits through movement and expression. It really makes the audience—or at least me—feel like there is more to them than the show will ever let on, much like how real people are in any given situation. That's what character development is about: creating a character that feels like he or she has a million and one stories to tell without speaking a word about any one of them.
