Author has written 84 stories for Rurouni Kenshin, and Yu-Gi-Oh.
So I first watched the YGO Duel Monsters dub on Saturday morning TV in 2000. The prospect of a (very) handsome young pharaoh being sealed away in a piece of jewelry for 3,000 years, then possessing the young boy who solves it in the modern era being just enough to seduce me into it. I've also read the entire YGO manga series, which I love even more for Yami Yugi being so wild in the beginning and even racking up a body count using innocent Little Yugi as his vessel of murder. I also enjoyed YGO Shadow Games (Seazon Zero) because it adapts Takahashi's earlier manga, where Yami Yugi isn't as heroic as Duel Monsters dub fans are used to him being.

I've been an anime/manga fan since 2003. My favorites are YuGiOh, Berserk, Inuyasha, Yuu Yuu Hakusho, Shaman King, Nightwalker, Wolf's Rain and Fullmetal Alchemist. There are others too, but those are the main ones. I think anime is infinitely superior to any of the crap that's put out in America. In the 80s, it was exactly the opposite, but since the 90s, animes have improved immensely.
That said, I strongly prefer manga to anime. Manga is the original medium that many animes are based on. The animes often leave out characters or even entire plots. Violence, blood and swearing are often removed from the story to make it more palatable to the masses. The manga usually has all the good stuff intact.
