Fav genre is definately psychological (why doens't ap aknoledge this as a genre? >=O ). Mysterious / supernatural are also highly aproved ^^ Also like thriller series that make you sit at the tip of your chair =) Comedy appreciated, though rather as feature of a serie then when it's only about being funny and in rare occasions, I like drama / romance (if it's presentation is good)... actually, I like almost all genres =)
I have a weak spot for series involving music (read: I totally love nodame cantabile), as I am a piano player myself =) this year trying to get accepted to the conservatory, hope I succeed ^^
at the time I don't watch a lot of anime (atm following 2 series: nodame cantabile finale (watching last episode today) and Lost (wich isnt an anime)), because.. well.. as stated above, I should be practising piano instead of doing something else ^_^' (or training my musical hearing etc)
From time to time, I re-rate some series to create a better/balanced personal rating system. Most frequent reason is there are too many series I would rate the full 5 with current way of doing it ._.
though I have quite a buffer with 60+ wanttowatch, recommendations are always welcome.
About my Top 5: just to stay clear, Nodame Cantabile means all three seasons, just thought of it too lame to let one serie take 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ^^ (yes i love it that much). Though anyone not being blissed with enjoying classical music, I don't recommend it to you (though aside from the music, it has good humor and cute, though serious, romance). Mushishi is the clear 2nd place holder, for it is definitely one of the best series... ever!. Kino no tabi: see mushishi, though mushishi has a mysterious ring to it wich improves its rating ^^
About my Soundtrack 6: 'Why 6?' you ask? For the simple fact that I couldn't kick baccano out of the list, it's just too good for that =') 'Why mushishi first if you're such a classical junk?' Mushishi is just.. just awesome.. listening to it makes you feel all relaxed and peacefull 'n stuff. Nodame has it's clear reasons. Cowboy Bebop's soundtrack is the best worked out 'self-composed' soundtrack ever that catched my attention. Some songs are such good quality that it's just like listening to a genuin jazz/blues artist. Kudo for Yoko Kanno. 5CpS is just really cute and sweet, with special attention for the closing credits song (and One More Time, One More Chance). Then maybe a weird entry: Genius Party (and Beyond), a serie just for showing off epic graphics and epicness in general. Though besides neat graphs, this serie has quite a few episodes with really good music (Gala, Baby Blue, Dimension Bomb for example). And Baccano is just awesome, so awesome that I refuse to not list it ^^
Other series/movies worth mentioning:
Summer Wars ridiculously awesome at some points, and really cool when not
Akagi Taking mahjong to a whole new level of wtf
Bakemonogatari it has everything: humor, action, brains, drama, romance, fan service
Black Lagoon for if you like true badassness
Elfen Lied just one of those series you just HAVE to watch. warning: do not watch with parents...
