I have been watching anime since I was a teenager. Some of my favorites include Rurouni Kenshin, Sailor Moon, Gundam Wing, G-Gundam, Pokemon, Summer Wars, and the Miyazaki movies. I haven't been reading manga as long as I've been watching anime, but I sure read a lot of it. I like Shoujo and Slice-of-Life manga the best, but I also like to read Shonen and Josei manga, and have more recently begun reading some horror manga (more psychological horror like Blood on the Tracks).
I love recommendations, so if anyone wants to recommend a favorite manga or anime, I'm always open to it, and will be sure to give it a fair try, even if it ends up not being my cup of tea.
