Ah, the obligatory favorites list.  What's a personal site without it?  ^_^  Yes, yes, I am a sheep.  I know.  So, here are a few of my favorite things, in no particular order.


Favorite Colors - Purple, Blue, Green

Favorite Wild Animal - Fox, wolf, various big cats

Favorite Domestic Animal - Cat, horse

Favorite Mythical Animal - Dragon, unicorn

Favorite Musical Genres - Classic rock.  Mostly 80s, though I also love 60s-70s rock.  Also, I love foreign music.  Mostly stuff in languages I have an interest in, such as Spanish or Japanese.  Hence, I love anime/JPOP music.  To a lesser extent, I also like some 40s-50s music; mostly swing and other similar fast music.  As a rule, I prefer faster paced, upbeat music to slower, pretty music.

Favorite (English) Singer/Group - The Beatles/Their solos/Wings, Pat Benatar, Madonna, Huey Lewis & The News, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Frank Sinatra, Moody Blues, and many more!

Favorite (English) Song - I have way too many to list.  I adore music, so I really wouldn't know where to start!  Basically, songs by my favorite artists and songs in my favorite genres.

Favorite Movies - Both "Star Wars" trilogies (though I like the original trilogy best), "Dragon Heart", "Short Circuit", "The Last Unicorn", "Memoirs of a Geisha", the "Harry Potter" movies, and many more!

Favorite Literary Genres - Fantasy is my favorite, hands down.  I typically prefer the medieval, swords-and-sorcery type of fantasy.  Although, I'm really coming to love urban fantasy too, these days.  I will also occasionally read regular fiction or sci-fi.

Favorite Anime/Manga Genres - I usually prefer shounen/action titles, though I do like a few shoujo titles.  Along with the shoujo, I'm quite fond of yaoi/yuri titles, as I'm a romantic sap.  ^_^

Favorite Anime - Fullmetal Alchemist, Yuugiou, Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, Slayers, DragonBall, Gundam Wing, Saiyuki, Gravitation, Yami no Matsuei, Inu-Yasha, Shoujo Kakumei Utena, Weiß Kreuz, Generator Gawl, Trigun, Outlaw Star, Bubblegum Crisis, Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon, Kodomo no Omocha, Yoroiden Samurai Troopers, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Naruto, Vision of Escaflowne, Magic Knight Rayearth, and more.

Dubbed or Subbed? - Typically subbed.  I'm kind of a purist...I prefer that the subs leave certain things alone (i.e. I want to see Kenshin's attack subbed as "Ryu Tsui Sen" instead of "Dragon's Hammer Flash")  Also, I'm trying to learn Japanese, so watching it subbed helps.  If I can find a really good dub (like the dub of Slayers or Trigun), then I'm more than happy to watch it.  I always buy dual language DVDs anyway, so I get both versions.

Favorite Manga Artists - Tite Kubo, Yoko Matsushita, Sanami Matoh, Nobuyuki Anzai, Hiromu Arakawa, Maki Murakami, Miho Obana, Fuyumi Soryo, Chiho Saito, Nobuhiro Watsuki, Kazuya Minekura, Kazuki Takahashi, Naoko Takeuchi, CLAMP
