Some good stuff: Nodame Cantabile, Monster, 12 Kingdoms, Spice and Wolf, Darker than BLACK, Aoi Bungaku, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
Aside from anime, I read a lot of fiction. I try to read at least 50 books a year. Mostly, fantasy, historical, adventure and some unique chick-lit once in a while. If you have recommendations, let me know :D
I also dabble in graphic design and food photography <3
Why do I have so many dropped series? My theory is that there's plenty of fantastic anime waiting on my To-Watch list so there is no point in sitting through something just for the sake of finishing it. I do give most of them second chances when someone convinces me though. I dropped Seirei no Moribito and Noein initially but ending up loving them!
Anyone else out there love movie soundtracks? My current addiction is Thor. Also love Black Swan, Pan's Labyrinth and a lot more.
ALSO I'll try watching anything once as long as it doesn't sell itself on fanservice...
UPDATE Jan 2012:
FINALLY BACK FROM HALF A YEAR OF ANIME HIATUS! (So sorry for ignoring messages etc... it really wasn't my intention.)
theAlien? My real name is commonly mispronounced as alien and thus my friends have dubbed me "the Alien"
