I don't really watch much anime anymore. I just have no time for it, but I still own a crap-ton of the stuff. Most of it is in storage, though. I
still enjoy some of them, I just don't actively watch it. Some favourites include: JUNGLE wa itsumo hare nochi guu, bishoujo senshi Sailor Moon (yes yes, shoujo, I know ^9__9^;; ), Dragonball
Z, Dragonball, shin kidou senki Gundam Wing, Outlaw Star, Trigun, Rurouni Kenshin, stuff like that. Most of those are shounen (boy stuff), cept for Sailor
Moon. I have enjoyed Tokyo MewMew and mahou shoujo Pretty Sammy (Magical Project S) before, but I have to be in the mood for something incredibly stupid
to watch those (and Sailor Moon, too, as it's also notoriously sugarpuff stupid-ish). Pokémon and Digimon are the only anime I can actually enjoy as English
dubs. All other English dubs make my ears bleed and my brain implode. Spanish dubs, however, are a lot better than English ones. Sorry, America, you guys just have terrible voice actors for
Manga, however, I still enjoy a lot, when I have time to read them. I own a lot of manga as well, but that's also mostly in storage because the
world is crazy. My favourite manga are: Naruto (no, I don't watch the anime), Dragonball Z, Tokyo MewMew, Trigun Maximum, Priest, Hellsing, Gundam Wing, Shin Tenchi
Muyou!, Rekka no Honou (Flame of Recca), aaaaand I can't think of any others right now. Meh.
- Webcomics: In no particular order, and now with links! 8-Bit Theater,
Goblins, College Roomies from
HELL!!!, Looking For Group, Something Positive,
VG Cats, General Protection Fault,
DM of the Rings, Dub This!, Wendy (apparently the creator
has deleted the site for this one. Sad). Some of these have ended now, but they're still pretty good, IMHO.
- Movies: The Last Emperor, Farewell My Concubine, huo yuan chia (Jet Li's Fearless), Curse of the Golden Flower, The
Forbidden Kingdom, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, BloodSport, Armageddon, B@ndits (the German one), Blade, FaceOff, Ghost in the Shell, The Rock, ConAir,
Vampires. Yes, lots of these are Chinese movies, and none are Japanese (cept GitS, I suppose. Do anime movies count?). Why does everyone find that weird?
- Favourite Actors: Jet Li, Ving Rhames, Norman Reedus (♥), Jackie Chan, Jean-Claude Van Damme (why doesn't he make movies anymore?),
Nicholas Cage, Bruce Willis, Tony Jaa
- Favourite Actress: Jasmin Tabatabai, Milla Jovovich
- Favourite Colors: Blue, black, and silver. Anything with all three is automatically awesome.
- Favourite Books: Any of the Redwall Series by Brian Jacques, Slaughterhouse Five (Kurt Vonnegut), One Flew
Over the Cuckoo's Nest (Ken Kelsey), the Dragonriders of Pern series (Anne McCaffrey), the Dragon series (Patricia C. Wrede), The Hobbit and the
LoTR trilogy (J.R.R. Tolkien), Jurassic Park, The Lost World, The Andromeda Strain, Congo, and most everything else by Michael
Crichton, Raptor Red (Robert Bakker), Chromosome 6 and various other books by Robin Cook, Parasite Eve (Sena Hideaki, and yes, this is the book, not the game), books about viruses
(not computer viruses), need I go on? I like reading.
