I am the hopeless romantic.
I'm Josh, from Missouri, USA.
Romance is my favorite genre of anime, along with comedy and action. If I really like an anime series i'll rate it 5/5. If its got a crappy ending but is good overall, i rate it 4.5/5. from there i take off for different aspects. If I absolutely hate it or it just doesn't grab my attention i'll stall or won't watch it.
I highly recommend Golden Time, Mayo Chiki, and Elemental Gelade if you like romance anime.
Fairy Tail, Sword Art Online, Toriko and Gintama are recommended for those who like action and comedy.
Don't watch Toriko on an empty stomach, or you'll eat everything in your house.
I've only watched the first season of both Naruto and Bleach, and don't plan on continuing them.
Dragonball Z, Rurouni Kenshin, and Inyuasha are where I began my journey with anime, watching them on Cartoon Network when i was younger.
I do read some manga, albeit very rarely. I'll even read the occasional shoujo if it's not super girly. For example, Shinshi Doumei Cross was very good.
