Hello Hello. So I will start by stating the obvious: I love anime and manga. As a child, I adored Dragonball Z and Sailormoon and even Pokemon. However after that, I did not return to anime until high school when I was introduced to OHSHC and now I am an avid fan.  I enjoy a wide range of anime/manga though there are few genres that I tend to avoid such as yaoi, yuri, ecchi, hentai, and explicit violence and nudity. Even then, I may compromise if I get good recommendations. For the most part, I am always up for trying new animes and manga so please feel free to recommend anything.

Some other interests including cooking and baking, playing the piano, doing yoga, running, reading, and just being with my friends. I am also currently a pre-med student and am hoping to become a doctor. If you want to know more, feel free to ask.

*For a run-down on my star rating system, let me first state that the star rating simply dictates how entertaining I find the series. It does not technically have to do with having a great cast with rich character development in conjuction with an innovative and thought-provoking plot now how I would choose to recommend the anime/manga.

5: This rating remains an exception to the above statement. I find the plot original, suspenseful, and incredibly well-thought out. The cast remains diverse yet memorable, with each character having their own significance, and there exists substantial character development. I would highly recommend this series to just about anyone regardless of their genre preference.

4: If I find a series entertaining but not amazing, this tends to be my go-to rating. I would consider this my generic default rating, as long as I am thoroughly entertained but not blown away. I would probably recommend this for anyone who enjoys the genre but not necessarily for anyone who does not.

3: For series that are subpar but still somewhat entertaining. The series, though not awful, seems lackluster and only mildly entertaining. There exists a low possibility that I would recommend this but for the most part, I simply found the anime mediocre at best so nothing really worth noting. Not really horrible or an eyesore but nothing all that great and note-worthy either.

2: This remains for series that had potential and has few genuinely decent moments but overall fell flat. Lackluster plot and cast that may be at times be entertaining but for the most part did not compell me to continue further. Since the series really has little redeeming value, I would not recommend this, even to someone who enjoys the genre.

1: Horrible. Absolutely horrible. I would never recommend this to anyone, regardless of genre preference. Series with this rating are lacking in every sense. The characters are either completely generic stereotypes with few if any defining or likable characteristics or are just horrificly disgusting characters that should only exist as villians, and even that could be pushing it. The plots lack originality, good humor, and remains either boring and vapid or completely bizarre to the point where little makes sense. There is absolutely nothing remotely redeeming at all about this series and I would never even want to discuss such a series.

Haha, Yeah I do love shoujo but I do also like shonen, and thrillers like Death Note. Yeah I have to admit I do mostly watch shoujo but I have been trying to go out of the box. I'll watch anything really. I just have a soft spot for romances with hot guys.. xD

How long have you been into Anime/Manga?

Thanks for the comment, I added you as a friend. =)

Peace.

Yeah for sure,its the shit.

If you're looking for something similar,then try Bakemonogatari. Its got a similar kinda feel to it,as the main protagonists kinda have the same personality. It looks gorgeous,and also has a supernatural feel to it,as well as some violence.

Another reccomendation would be Nurarihyon no Mago. Its a bit of a stretch,however I kinda thought of Durarara when I finished watching NnM. They give off a certain kind of vibe,even though they really different. It's certainly a stretch,mainly cos there are few anime out there as cool as Durara.

If you got any recommendations for anime,and cheeses,lump them on me. :)

Oohh brotherhood had one of the best endings I've ever seen. The very last ending scene with Edward was honestly the best haha :) Hmm you should finish the deathnote series, in my opinion it was also great. I agree with you, Izaya is just one of those characters you don't know to love or hate, but i like his personality, even though it just happens to be a rather sadistic one lmao.
