Before you ask who the character in my profile picture is; someone drew me as a Naruto character many years ago, that's what it is.
Sub or Dub?
Sub watcher, can't stand most dubs. I mean no disrespect to anyone who likes dubs, or to any non-Japanese voice actors. I just prefer the original, in my opinion it feels more authentic. I did watch Dragon Ball dubbed in English however, because it was my first ever anime and I became attached to the English voices. My second anime was Naruto, which I watched subbed. Since then I've only ever watched subbed and will continue to do so.
Currently, as of July 2023, my Top 3 anime are:
1. Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)
Amazing anime with incredible characters and a great story. Very emotional and inspiring. Super well made, with superb animation. Levi is my favourite character, but I also really like Eren, Erwin and many others.
2. Naruto (including Shippuden).
Mainly for personal reasons, because it inspired me back when I was having a hard time, that's why it's in the Top 3. Overall a well made anime with great characters, inspiring life lessons and an amazing soundtrack (especially in Shippuden). Itachi Uchiha is my favourite character.
3. Yuukoku no Moriarty (Moriarty the Patriot)
I think this one is criminally underrated. Such an interesting anime, with great characters, cool plot twists and clever writing, all in a fairly unique setting. Favourite character in this anime is William Moriarty, the main character. The main character is rarely my favourite character in anime, but this anime is one of the exceptions.
Some honorable mentions:
SK8 the Infinity
Bungou Stray Dogs
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club
Dragon Ball Z Kai
Run with the Wind
Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan
The Case Study of Vanitas
Darker than Black
I tend to postpone watching an anime until it's completed, after learning the painful lesson of great anime being cancelled before being completed. Such as Yona of the Dawn and The Heroic Legend of Arslan - I was invested in these only to realise they won't be renewed (at least it doesn't seem that way at present). So there are many anime I look forward to getting into later on, such as SPY x FAMILY.
I like manga too, but I don't like spoilers for anime I want to watch, so I tend to avoid reading "conventional" manga. Sometimes I check in on the manga after watching the anime. I tend to read a lot of Korean manhwa however, mainly shounen ai (BL). Not a big fan of the overly explicit ones, but I like the ones with a good story and well written characters.
