Sailor Moon-My first anime..got into it because of the Nephrite x Naru pairing...am so pissed that he was killed off..hope he gets justice in this new anime.

Rurouni Kenshin-love watching the sword fights and Kenshin is real sweet..also there were some funny episodes

Fushigi Yuugi-When I first saw it I thought it was the most hilarious anime with Miaka being your typical ditzy main character for shojo..plus it was an anime where I wanted to know what will happen next.

Yu-gi-oh! Duel Monsters-very nice storyline and I love watching some of the monsters brawl, as well as learning background stories from the characters and some episodes touched my heart

Fruits Basket-Pretty funny and cute anime..

Witch Hunter Robin-nice animation style and I like the characters...it was interesting to see how their mission started as capturing witches only to discover the hunters had different objectives.

The very first anime I am madly in love with is saint seiya! I can stay in love with things forever, I was 11 when I first saw it, to this day I am still watching it, and it still got an active fandom in China.

Then came Sailor Moon, Yu Yu hakusho, Ranma and then Rayearth and Card Captor, X1999 and RG Veda, the anime and manga from the 90s are the best.
The more recent obsession was Angel Sanctuary and Earl Cain by Kaori Yuki. I was obsessed with it during the 2000s.

I would love to check our Ouran High School Host Club if I got the time.

I am spamming the forum right now!

I suddenly have a desire to check out Pretear, I saw some clips from youtube and fell in love with it immediately had anyone watched it?

Is it just me? I think the heroine, Himeno, looks like Hikaru Shidou, Hayate, the knight of Wind looks a lot like Zagato minus the headpiece and Sasame, the Knight of Sound looks a lot like Eagle Vision.

I am wondering if Himeno, Hayate and Sasame are expies of Hikaru, Zagato and Eagle?

Himeno is a genki girl, Hayate is mysterious and stern, Sasame appears to be a very nice guy, the personality kind of match too.

Pretear is ENTIRELY a game of spot-the-Rayearth-character-design. :D *waves at Mannen, waves at Clef.* Watched it with anime club in Uni and that was one of the things which made me start giggling about once a minute~

*cough* the, um, transformation sequences had us ALL laughing. (..........we were a very mature bunch, yep, yep. XD) (Also we were watching it back to back with Rahxephon and Elfen Leid, I think? Unless we were onto RoD the TV by then... might have been......)

Ooooooh! How come I forgot to mention the transformation sequence! I was really embarrassed when Himeno and Hayate turn naked and also that expression on Himeno's face as she took up the knight's powers.

Then all the focus on the naked girl...why can't they stick to something like bestowing powers using a staff?????

I LOVE PRETEAR.  I haven't watched it in years but I've been meaning to do a rewatch sometime soon.  I thought it would be very trite and boring but I couldn't believe how much it made me FEEL.

Great to meet another Pretear fan! I could really identify with Himeno when she felt she was uneeded and Mawata really needs a hug, when I saw her isolating herself.

*Dodges all of the Pretear love, with idea to contribute later, but anyways...*

I generally stick to shoujo but there's some action and other assorted genre stuck in the melting pot that is my brain...

Naruto- It was my first anime,(which I'm proud to say) and it certainly has stayed with me over the years, but I do think that I liked it better when it wasn't as large and angry of a fandom though... ^^;

Kuroshitsuji- I mainly got into Kuro for a friend recommended it, and man was that the right move. This series has the darker and mysterious theme that makes for a good show, if you don't mind the gore... Along with assorted plot twists that make for an interesting and thrilling watch(and or read) yet it can also be comical, so all in all I'd say it's pretty well versed.

Code Geass- ONE THING. CLAMP'S ARTWORK! It's really pretty and entertaining, but man the angst killed me and it has never left, it's a reoccurring issue... But yes, this show is a mecha series, yet it doesn't focus solely on that. The character's intertwining relationships is what overall hooked me.

Death Note- If you could kill anyone that you didn't like, admit it you would, just once.... The mystery and thrill of figuring everything out and guessing how it all would work out was my main focus... The characters are all pretty great though as well, they're each so different yet they all make the show so more interesting...


OHSHC- Love for this has already appeared on this post, but I agree that it's funny and cute and feelsy and great~

Kalideo Star- Mainly this show is really really uplifting and happy-go-lucky~ Nothing bad ever happens! Yet it's also really inspiring for it talks about following your dreams, no matter how far fetched they may seem!

Plus almost all of CLAMP works mainly Rayearth, Tsubasa, Kabato, and Angelic Layer because they are all gorgeous and really well done, and mainly fluffy (I apparently tend to stick to those).

(There are also more animes but I'll stop here for now.)

I am hooked onto another manga: the wallflower. Ever since I installed am manga reading app in my phone.

I actually hate to read manga online, but space is limited in hk.

That manga is really funny with the beautiful but scary girl Sunako and the 4 hot guys who are constantly hunted down by girls!

I just re-read W Juliet (well the last 7 volumes, at least) and am in a current JADIOSAFJDL?Kjsd?aFEELINGS mood. This is such a great manga. It's intolerably cute and heartwarming and it makes me cry more often than not and the supporting characters are so much appreciated and the author makes an effort to develop them so nicely that ugiughuidhfusiafhadygf I'm back to typeventilating.

This is a list of some of my favourite manga/anime/comics besides MKR...

- Sailor Moon. OMG. I can't even describe how much I love it and how much it means to me... I'm a huge fan of Sailor Moon since I was a child... so much nostalgia :'( Even if the anime is quite different from the manga, I absolutely love it ( and sometimes it makes me cry a lot). I think that there are too many filler episodes though... The final episodes of each series are just wonderful. I want to rewatch it again!
I've read the manga about 4 years ago, and it's simply amazing. I found out that Tuxedo Kamen actually has powers - in the anime he does nothing but throw a rose and say some kind of moralistic sentences to the enemies, while the senshis are about to die.
As a child, my favourite senhis were Mercury and Venus <3 But then I fell in love with Pluto and Saturn too! And Uranus+Neptune, what an amazing couple. (Of course, my TV had censored their relationship XD)
Ok, I just love them all *-*
I like the Sailor Starlights too! (even if they're a bit "weird" XD)
I had a crush on Yaten and Prince Diamond.
I'm watching Sailor Moon Crystal, so I've become addicted to this series once more!
Thank you Naoko Takeuchi for having created Sailor Moon...
Sailor Moon and MKR have taught us that girls can fight and save the world. Without the need of a prince.

- Dragonball: I was obsessed with this anime when I was a child! I didn't like Dragonball GT so much (I've never finished to watch all the series... I think Pan it's quite boring)... on the other hand, I love Dragonball Z. I love the first series as well, but maybe Dragonball Z is the one I love most...

- Saint Seiya... I love Greek mythology! I watched some episodes of the anime in my childhood and I read the manga some years ago. I loved it (even if the drawings are much better in the animated version). Hyoga and Shiryu have always been my favourite saints.
The Sanctuary and Hades cycles are the best ones for me... especially Sanctuary (because of the anime!).

- CLAMP series: Chobits (I love it... I love the plot and the characters... It's so deep, and very sad sometimes), Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle (Sakura and Syaoran are sooo cute! Their love is so pure! But I love Kurogane and Fay as well...), XxxHolic (because Yuuko is the best. One of my favourite characters EVER), Card Captor Sakura (even if the manga is a bit "weird" sometimes... i mean, a relationship between a teacher and a 10-year-old child? Seriously?)... I love and hate CLAMP at the same time. But I'll never stop to thank them. They are geniuses.

- Death Note. The plot, the characters, the atmosphere, the drawings, everything is perfect. The anime soundtrack is beautiful as well.

- F, by Noboru Rokuda. I've read the anime some years ago and I was almost shcked by its beauty. The plot is fantastic. It's not just about Formula One races... it's more philosophical. I can talk about it for hours.

- This is not a manga, but a comic by Neil Gaiman: Sandman. Maybe it's my favourite among all the comics/manga I've read so far. Just read it. It's a masterpiece!

- I adore Alan Moore's graphic novels: V for Vendetta and Watchmen. The movies are pretty good, but the graphic novels... they are sublime.

Dear Ithil:

May I high five with you? I am over the moon to have met another Rayearth Fan who also likes Saint Seiya! There are not many people I know who happens to like both of my favorites works!

I fell in love with Saint Seiya when I was 12, but was not allowed to watch it because of the violence, I am still obsessed with it after 22 years.

My favorite characters are of course, the 5 protagonists and the Gold Saints and Athena, Hades, Poseidon, Hilda and Freya too.

Hope to hear from you again!.

It's super nice to know that I'm not alone in my sailor moon love XD So many people here seem to have loved it. Jupiter, Chibi Moon and Uranus are my loves of the sailor senshi! I've even written fic for BSSM before, though it's currely long lost, sadly.

I didn't like the Starlights as much, but that's just me.

Crystal is awesome, I really need to get caught up though....

Dragon Ball: My love from my teen years and currently something I'm reaquainting myself with now. If it makes you feel any better, GT is kind of not that well loved among a lot of the fans. I, myself, tend to chose to ignore it. Do you have a favorite character? Goku is mine XD

Hi, Antoinette!
Thank you for having answered me! I LOVE SAINT SEIYA, I was Saint Seiya-addicted about 4/5 years ago... I should rewatch the anime - I'm sure I'd become obsessed with it again XD
I love the Gold Saints as well (especially Camus, because I'm an Aquarius  :D), and Athena, Hilda, Shaina and Pandora.

It's super nice to know that I'm not alone in my sailor moon love XD So many people here seem to have loved it. Jupiter, Chibi Moon and Uranus are my loves of the sailor senshi! I've even written fic for BSSM before, though it's currely long lost, sadly.

Hello, Pixie! You're definetely not alone in your Sailor Moon love! I think I'll never stop to love that manga and anime...

With regard to Dragon Ball: I like Goku so much! I think my favourite characters are Trunks, Goku and Bulma (because she's not just a pretty girl, she's very clever and badass! XD)  :D

(By the way: I love your avatar and signature! Ascot+Umi <3)

Bulma is probably one of my all time favorite female characters in anything! She totally had an effect on how I view life. Smart, beautiful, and totally capable on her own. At least when it comes to brains. XD

Thanks! I'm quite pleased with my sig and ava too~ XD I'm glad you like them~
