Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
Ouran High School Host Club
High School of the Dead
Full Metal Alchemist
Shingeki no Kyojin
Naruto x Hinata (What can I say, main staple pairing)

I'm fine with most pairings. These are just my favorites as stated above.
Concerning the ever present Critics United, I've never understood how getting authors to remove integral parts to their stories was, in any way, shape or form, "helpful". I could understand if it was a poorly written lemon, or even a straight smut fic (Many of which haven't gotten flagged by the CU for some reason...) but sometimes these things are necessary for plot development, or, again, an integral part to the story. You can't say that good literature doesn't have sex in it since there are ones out there *cough50ShadesofGraycough*. Notice I've primarily only talked about lemons, and that's because any other violations tend to be ignored, and CU tends to go after fics with at least 100 reviews, and lemons in them. Again I'll state this, just because you see the words "sex" or "lemon" does NOT make the writing bad. My theory is that the people in Critics United are a bunch of prudes. Seriously. Walk outside in a mall, or supermarket, or any public area really, and you'll see a lot of people who thing a strip of denim is appropriate clothing. Now I know what you're going to say, "Oh, but that's different! They're not having sex!" Well shit. No there not. But neither are the characters in the many fictions people write. It's all just a collection of letters that people may or may not choose to read. It's like movies or games. Just because the label says "Rated M" or "Rated R" does NOT mean that people will listen. If you've ever played multiplayer on an FPS, you know what I'm talking about. Whiny 9 year olds yelling into their microphones on a game meant for people double their age. Point is, people know what they're getting into when reading the description. If you buy a box labeled porno, you expect to find porno in the box. You don't buy the porno expecting Cherrios, and cry foul because there's no Cherrios. That's just plain weird. Same concept. And so, that concludes my rant. Not that I expect too many people to read this...
