I'm a geek and an artist. I love anime and manga.
I love anime because it will push barriers and go places most media cannot. Animated media can get away with things that live action would never bother with. The Japanese are especially good at doing these things, and I am often surprised and pleased with what I see.
I'm a BIG sucker for Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli films. I own them all and watch them all the time.
I also love Lupin the 3rd very much. I've seen every movie special I can get my hands on!
Admittedly, my least favorite anime type is Mech/Giant Robot. I also have little patience for the '500 girls LOVE one boy' formula... (ie Tenchi Muyo, Love Hina).
