I am a fan of any sort of film medium. I turned to anime recently cause I was getting a little fed up with all of Americas repetitive franchises. I am not an art critic but as long as I can see whats going on and the story is written well, I dont care.
I like a lot of goth shows, movies and anime. Theres just something about the dark side that draws me in. But dont let that be a reflection on my character. The darkness is just so interesting is all.
When it comes to watching anime, I dont just watch the first episode of the series and base all of my judgements on that. I usually wait about 3 or 4 episodes before I decide if I will continue or not. As the scholars say, "Patience is a virtue."
I dont really read a lot of manga but I will if I like a series enough. I dont really plan on reading all of my "want to read" list. I just wanted to have some options for the future.
My favorite anime has to be the When They Cry franchise. That includes Higurashi and Umineko. The only one from that series I dont like are the first 3 Kira OVAs.
