My sister is 14 years older than me and my brother is 10 years older then me, and both of them are into anime. I grew up always seeing video games or anime on the TV, so I guess you could say it's in my blood.  I think I grew up with the typical anime that all 90s kids had... SM, DB and DBZ, Slayers, Outlaw Star, etc. I think because of this, I have a great fondness for older anime and tend to prefer it by default. I really, really prefer hand-drawn anime. 

While I love watching anime, I'm a reader by nature and have taken to manga more nowadays.  I've been out of the anime/manga scene for awhile and am trying to read and watch those that I just must see before I die.  

My favorite anime ever is Now and Then, Here and There.  Sailor Moon gets an honorable mention, though, because I was so obsessed with it when I was kid.  I really thought I would turn into Sailor Jupiter when I hit 14.  I really did. (No, I'm actually not kidding.  I was actually convinced and I think maybe I suffered from Chunibyou!)

My favorite manga is Fruits Basket.  I feel like that manga basically defined my high school experience. 

As I mentioned before, I've been out of the anime scene for awhile. Feel free to recommend me anything worthwhile! :)

Ok, well, don't say I didn't warn you. 

Yeah, yuri is the more sex-oriented version. I don't particularly mind shoujo-ai, although the main shoujo-ai pick is anything but clean... 

I don't really know what put me off AoT, it just didn't capture my imagination at the time. Seems a bit harsh on the mangaka to not read something just because of the art. I can pretty much garuntee that's not it. Once you get through the early volumes of Bleach, no art is bad enough to put you off.

Will do! I actually read the first volume of AoT early in my manga career, but didn't really enjoy it enough to carry it on. Hopefully the anime will encourage me to read more of it! 

This is the marathon I signed up to. Not sure if you can join in part way, although you could always ask! I will warn you though, there has been some really weird stuff picked... You may be better off avoiding it tbh... At least the shoujo-ai/yuri section seems to be over.

You're welcome! I have never seen Battle Royale so I would really know if it shares any similarities.

I am enjoying them both & hope to finish them soo. Shugo Chara! is very cute though I think I prefer Pandora Hearts more. You should definitely give it a try. :)
