Bryan here.  I began casually watching anime during the early days of Adult Swim, but it wasn't until a bunch of stuff started coming to Netflix streaming about five years ago that I really got in to anime. I've been watching somewhat regularly ever since.

Having had such a late start to anime, I generally watch just as much older stuff in an attempt to catch up, as I do new stuff. Slice of life/slow-paced/drama/romance with the occasional comedy have always been my go-to genres, but I've enjoyed series of just about any genre.  I also try to keep up with anime films as well.  I am THE biggest fan of Makoto Shinkai.  And Porco Rosso remains the best Ghibli movie. :D

I'm a nerd for most other things as well. I play a lot of video games, watch a lot of Netflix/Hulu/HBO, see all the latest movies, and follow most sports (originally from MN, Twins/Vikings fan).

So, yeah! I'm always up for discussing any series. Nobody I know in my everyday life watches anime, so this is kind of where I get my fill. Feel free to message me, or invite to chat (what chat client do people even use these days...), or follow me on Twitter @Gleszinski. See ya around!

My favorites of 2014 are:

1) Barakamon 

2) Mushishi Zoku Shou

3) Haikyuu

4) Akatsuki no Yona (I love the manga and so far they've done a great job of staying true to it with the anime. I look forward to it every week!)

5) Gin no Saji 2

6) Zankyou no Terror

7) Noragami

8)Tonari no Seki-kun

9) Kuroshitsuji:Book of Circus

10) (the last is a three way tie. They all have a simular, yet slighty different style of comedy and I enjoyed each of them equally ... I simply can't choose between them) Gugure! Kokkuri-san / Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun /Hoozuki no Retetsu

I have unique tastes lol xD

Ya it's my first time watching Aria. I really did like the first season and am taking my time with the following seasons as it's the type of anime I appreciate watching at a slower pace. It's wonderful to hear it gets even better! Something to look forward to! :D

It depends on whether a character who has incestious feelings for her brother would bother you ... personally I don't really care for that aspect of it and that severely crippled my enjoyment of the series ... I would  only rate it a 6/10. Decent, but dragged down by a character I wish they had killed off because she was annoying as hell ... she said the words 'onii-sama' more than a hundred and sixty times throughout the 26 episodes ... it got extremely irritating. And if you're curious as to the 'onii-sama' count ... someone on the forums I haunt started a tally for each episode, that's how annoying Miyuki was >.<' this really isn't an anime that I would recommend...

duchessliz is actually incorrect about the first season following the manga in the first fifteen episodes. Take if from a manga reader, it didn't. It diverged right in episode one, the man "Damian" was no evil, he did not get burned alive in an oven, nor was his name even Damian, it was Sir Clause. Episode 2 was actually chapter 3-4 in the manga, Episode 3 was chapter 2 in the manga, 4-6 were canon with alterations that were not in the manga, 7-12 was filler (never happened in the manga), 13-15 was canon but with alterations that were not in the manga. They were right about the rest being anime original though.

Book of Circus followed the manga closer than what season one did, but it too had fillers and alterations in the episodes that was not in the manga. (I've been reading the manga since 09, the year the Circus arc starting in the manga. I read it first before watching any of the anime. The manga is 10,000 times better than the anime. Book of Circus was good, better than the other two, but I still highly recommend reading the manga from the start up to it's current chapter (97 atm. 98 in October.))
