I like pretty much anything that distracts me from reality since I find it either boring or broken, depending upon my mood. Big fan of mostly action and comedy animes but I have a hard time getting into anything with mecha. I can't explain why but all that melodrama about their emotions during war bores me. If its funny or lots of violence then I'll probably like it. Even better if it has some of both.
I'm a gamer first and then an otaku though, something that my collections can attest to.
