I'm not a die hard fan but I do rather enjoy anime. I was introduced to it courtesy of my INTJ friend who has a huge collection of them and loves having movie nights.

Of the few I've seen, my favourites are (in no particular order):

Movies
My Neighbour Totoro
Nausicaa
Princess Mononoke
Evangelion 1.0 and 2.0
Steam Boy
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

TV Series
Death Note (although I'm only 1/2 way through - don't ruin it! )
Evangelion
Escaflowne
Elfen Lied

I need to see Perfect Blue and Akira again because they were the first animes I saw and they freaked the hell out of me. I'm thinking that maybe I'd feel differently now...

I was re-watching Bakemonogatari again today and URF. This is still incredibly, incredibly romantic.

Neon Genesis Evangelion (and pretty much the other stuff too...)
Death Note*
GunGrave
Grave of the fireflies

Ghost in the shell (the movie, not much of a fan of the series, was ok first time through.)
Hellsing (Ok, I haven't actually watched more than one episode so far, but what I saw, was kind of awesome, and I
keep meaning to watch the rest...lol)
Paranoia Agent (their intro music annoyed the hell out of me.)
Akira (first anime I ever watched, my mom about killed my brother for letting me watch it, I had so many
nightmares,lol)
Outlaw Star*
.hack//SIGN* (also twilight bracelet, but not so much...)

Galaxy Express 999***
Soul Eater*
Macross
Dead Leaves***
Yamato Nadeshiko*
Ah! My Goddess!*** (there seems to be multiple versions of this anime, the one I prefered which I saw first, I cant seem to find anywhere online...)
Tenchi Muyo (Like most of them to one degree or another.)
Kekkaishi
Blue Gender
Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit

There is so much more, im sure, but this is all I can think of/find at the moment, I will add more if/when I remember them... I didnt include pics cause my list is way to long, that would be way to huge of a post,lol.

Nice list. Watching this anime titled "Made in Abyss" these days.

A gloomy and eerie anime about a girl in a weird world. There's barely any dialogue but the storytelling style keeps one intrigued.

Angel's Egg

My favorite
1. Hellsing
2. Black Clover
3: Attack On Titan
4. Full Metal

@Coriolis we shared our love in fantasy. I at the time said my favorite fantasy writers were;
1. Tanith Lee nicknamed ‘The Princess Royal of Fantasy
2. Marion Zimmer Bradley Darkover Novels
3. Roger Zelazny Amber Series
4. Michael Moorcock Elric Saga

I somehow can’t picture you watching an Anime cartoon.

On your second list, I have enjoyed Tanith Lee and Marion Zimmer Bradley myself. Also Ursula Leguin and Stephen Donaldson.

As for anime, a friend did get me to watch Attack on Titan. I quite enjoyed it, but haven't finished watching all available episodes yet.

That’s a pleasant surprise my friend. Black Clover is sword and sorcery. Nice hearing from you. As I said this site has become awfully quiet.

P. S. @Coriolis most of my life I have been a perfectionist. I tended to go to lengths in all my pursuits. On the mainland I had quite an extensive library of fiction and nonfiction.
In science fiction I collected the Hugo and Nebula Awards for best science fiction.

One of the earliest Hugo Award winner in the 1950’s had a science fiction novel of invisible aliens that fed on the emotions of humans. This makes more sense and I find this more believable to me than any religion.

Ursula Leguin’s book the Left Hand of Darkness I believe was n both the Hugo and Nebula awards.

Stephen Donaldson’s books won many fantasy awards. I used to collect the World Fantasy and Brutish Fantasy Award winning novels.

Left Hand of Darkness has long been one of my favorite books.

The animation is a bit dated but the story is quite engaging.
