Anime/Manga Fan Questionnaire – Just for Kicks

What was the first anime you watched and/or manga you read?

First anime I was kind of aware of as foreign (to the US) was Ulysses 3000, but I probably saw some more Americanized anime stuff earlier. First manga was issue 4 of Nausicaa, which I picked up at a bookstore for some reason.

What is the last anime you watched and/or manga you read?

Oh boy, the last I clearly remember (both anime and manga) is Girls Last Tour.

What is your current favorite anime and/or manga?

NB: I’m interpreting “current” to mean “my current fav” not “my fav that is fairly current”: My consistent favorite manga is Trigun/Trigun Maximum, and probably always will be. Current favorite anime in the sense of the one that always jumps to the front of my mind when I think about what’s amazing is Akira.

Which anime and/or manga deserves a sequel?

Ergo Proxy. It ended right as the main setup narrative was about to start to pay off.

Which series do you wish you could watch or read for the first time all over again?Read more… )

(If—based on my weird responses—anyone wants to rec me anything, please do!)
