Hey! My name is Peter. I live in Poland and I got addicted to anime relatively recently.

 

I watched my first show when I was pretty young ( I think it was the Tenchi Muyo series), but I've gotten really into it in about 2015/2016. Since then about half of my free time has been either catching up with what's popular or rummaging through old series in search of a good find.

 

While there isn't any particular genre that I consciously look for I tend to like comedy and romance shows or series that are *really* weird and/or goofy. I also enjoy shows about art and artistic endeavor.

 

Since I'm in my thirties I tend to like anime featuring adult protagonists, but younger characters aren't a dealbreaker for me.

 

I'm interested in storytelling and visual media so I try to make a review from time to time to hone my abilities to appreciate the shows on a little deeper level. I'm no pro though and I don't pretend that I am.

 

I also like to make and update my anime lists, since I've found lots of good shows through other people's ones and would like to give back to the community (however dumbly profound that sounds).

 

If I were to suggest a series in order to get my tastes I'd pick

1. for the romance anime: Toradora!, Gosick, Teasing Master Takagi-San, Wotakoi: Life is Hard for Otaku and ReLife

2. for the slice of life anime: Barakamon, Planetes, WATAMOTE - No Matter How I Look At It, It's You Guy's Fault I'm Unpopular, Welcome to the NHK!

3. for the comedy anime: KonoSuba - God's blessing on this wonderful world!!! and Hinamatsuri

4. for the 'cool' anime: Cowboy Bebop, Black Lagoon, Samurai Champloo

5. for the shows about art and artistic endeavor: Nodame Cantabile, Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, Welcome to the Ballroom and Bakuman

6. for the battle/shonen anime: One Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100 (I like My Hero Academia too, but it didn't blow me off my feet)

7. for the Weird but Great anime: Arakawa Under the Bridge, FLCL and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

 

In terms of characters I like and dislike, I generally gravitate towards down to earth, intelligent, cynical and sarcastic ones, hopefully with as much sense of humor as possible and dislike most that have any kind of uber plans, missions send by gods and are pretentious/self-important.

 

Anyway nice meeting anyone nice enough to visit and I hope the reviews/lists/whatever You're here for will be worth Your time :-)

Those are not weird tastes, those are amazing tastes lmao. Aikuro is HILARIOUS, Guts is a lovable weirdo and I think it's illegal to hate Senketsu lol... The ending made me really sad...

Anyways, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I'll get to your recommendations when I have some time to spare!

Woah, that was fast! It takes me like forever to watch an anime XD. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Btw I'll totally check out Arakawa Under The Bridge! I've always heard about it but that's not what I expected it was going to be XD. It seems funny!

Also who was your favourite character in Kill la Kill? I'm obsessed with Satsuki, she's my favourite anime character ever

Hey! Sorry for the late reply, I must've missed the notification!

Thanks a lot for the recs! I'm actually always eager to hear people's recommendations ahaha

I actually thought Black Lagoon was already on my Want To Watch list, I must've forgotten to add it when I was making it so thanks for that XD

But yeah, I'll definitely be checking those out! I'll tell you my opinions when I do! I'm really slow at watching anime tho, and my WTW list is super long, so it might take me a while to watch them, but I'll get there eventually!

Also you got my tastes PERFECTLY right XD! I LOVE weird stylish shows! The more iconic something manages to be, not caring about conventions or what other people thing, the more I tend to like it.

As for my recommendation, I can see you still haven't seen Kill la Kill! It's not for everyone because there's a lot of nudity, as nudity is quite literally part of the plot, but it's the most amazing shonen (and anime in general) I've ever seen! It's got way too many memorable characters for me not to recommend it to you, as it's quite the staple in anime history. I think it's something every should see at least once. Plus, you seem to be into the "Weird but amazing" anime and this one definitely fits that category.

Anyways, Thanks a lot!
