I am a nerdy guy, with way too much time on my hands. I watch anime and have seen more then my fair share. I play video games, I paint D&D miniatures. my favorite types of anime are alot different from when I was a kid,then I liked action and just about anything that lasted a long time 100+ episodes or so. But then I started to find that anime is better when they only make about 12 to 24 episodes. No more of the 2 episodes of people staring eachother down and then 1 episode of flashbacks and then 2 more episodes of people being stared down and then 2 mins of fight and then back to the stare down and flashbacks. so I gave up bleach naruto and DBZ and started watching good stuff.
My top 10 in no real order
Spice and wolf, hellsing ultimate OVA, Claymore,squid girl, last exile
black lagoon,tokko,deadman wonderland.
