I've had this account for awhile, but never bothered to fill out this profile before. I just didn't have a lot to say here, I guess.
Favorite books: Too numerous to count, but some highlights would be the Harry Potter series, Howl's Moving Castle, Watership Down, Huckleberry Finn, and the Percy Jackson series.
Favorite manga: Again, too numerous to count, but some top faves would be Fullmetal Alchemist, Bleach, Naruto, Inu-Yasha, Case Closed/Detective Conan, Natsume's Book of Friends, Chi's Sweet home, Ranma 1/2, Rurouni Kenshin, Vampire Knight, Chibi Vampire, Fruits Basket, Emma, Loveless, Hana-Kimi, From Far Away, etc.
Favorite anime: For the most part, much the same as my manga list. Both Fullmetal Alchemist series, the original and Brotherhood, Bleach, Inu-Yasha, Naruto, Case Closed, Natsume's Book of Friends, Rurouni Kenshin, Vampire Knight, Fruits Basket, Loveless, Kyo Kara Maoh, Ranma 1/2, Death Note, Karin, Emma, Saiyuki, and of course, all the Studio Ghibli films, etc.
I do have a love for several vintage anime too, like Speed Racer, Kimba the White Lion, Star Blazers, Robotech/Macross, and The Mysterious Cities of Gold. I wish some studio would release Belle and Sebastian someday. I got my hopes up when Mysterious Cities of Gold was finally released on DVD, but so far, it hasn't happened.
