Anime & manga
? My first anime (I recognized as such)
I think Pokemon or Digimon?
My first cinema movie ever was the first Pokemon movie and I absolutely loved it!
The movie I've loved very much and is still my No. 1, is Princess Mononoke.
My absolute favorite childhood anime series was Inuyasha and I still like it very much for its setting and a few characters.
? How old have you been
6? My sister is ten years older than me and introduced me. So, I started with the typical kids's anime. Even nowadays, I watch some anime with my family. Especially my mom always has loved them. :D
? What's important to me
Enjoyment, characters, story, setting, atmosphere, but the visuals are also very important to me: art style and colors & I absolutely love background art and bautiful details as well! x3 Anime and manga are a visual medium, so the art is important to me and I appreciate them.
Voice actors and music (OPs, EDs, OSTs) are important too.
I guess, it's 55 - 60 % enjoyment. My favorites are scored with 9 - 10 by default, because the enjoyment is up to 9.5 - 10 & I love the characters, graphics, setting and story. Even if I know about the flaws / even if some story and eorld building elements might bother me. ;)

Genres / Demographics: Fantasy (High, Urban, Dark, Steampunk, ...), (Battle) Shounen, Seinen, Romance (Hetero, Boys Love, Girls Love), Drama, Dystopia / Utopia, Psychological, Horror, SciFi (& Cyberpunk), Slice of Life, Iyashikei, Isekai, ...
I'm strongly character- and feelings-orientated & a big carebaby. So I love many of the feel trains. x3
For characters, I like different personality types, but mostly these, who have different sides to them, and the very flawed and troubled ones with the big and sad drama, I guess? Many of the characters with the hard shell and soft(er) core. xD I also appreciate characters, who are very protective, loyal and would do everything for their loved ones & others. Just people, who care a lot, I think.
Ecchi, Yaoi, Yuri, Harem, Magical Girls (bc of the too shiny style & designss and all-female casts), many Moe-styles and Shoujo-styles, but like some anime from these genres.
For characters, I don't like these, who are over the top and the really cold-hearted ones, psychopaths and sadists are not my cup of tea. Sometimes I like them as villains, tho.
Also: Too much fanservice (with male and female characters), too much fujobaiting and especially neverending anime, which will never get another sequel. Dear studios, finish what you have begun, please! :(
? Why so many anime on the drop list
It's also my not interested (NI)-list. It's good to know, for some games like Secret Santa and recs, I guess.
? Plan to watch list...
The priority scale is inbetween very low and very high.
... are in the next tab.
I added many of them. They are sorted, so the second half is more like: "I liked this / the character very much, too."
Also, there are childhood favorite anime and characters and the last few characters are my favorite villains.
