I love fantasy/adventure! That gives you a lot of really cool stuff with out the scientific shit. :lol:

But then again, some f/a does add in sci fi. Like the way Rave Master's getting. :x

I think Dragonball's plot went well, until DBZ...and they introduced aliens and power levels, and it got too complicated, therefore losing it's 'Dragonball-ness'.

I like D&D based animés (I voted "fantasy/adventure"). Unfortunately, I know only one series and its spin-offs that are D&D based: Record of Lodoss War. The OAV were done by Nobuteru Yuki.

If anyone here likes Tales of Symphonia or Tales of Phantasia, you'll be happy to hear that there will be an anime for each released in Japan next year.  :D

I like cowboy bebop (the drama-action-adventurous--semi-romance--little kid-strange-supports everything it should type of anime) because it satisfies in 26 episodes (1 movie) or less.

Technically, I like all anime genre but the one I like the most is Mecha/Sci-Fi. It has a realistic settings that it could happen in the near or distant future. One these anime that it could happen in the near future is Ghost in the shell & Appleseed.

I heard that Tales of Phantasia is related to Tales of Destiny? So, what is it like?

Well, it was the first Tales game, released for the SNES. I've only played the GBA remake, and it has quite a good plot. I'll post the links for the anime sites when I find them again...

Street Fighter II V - TV series only in Japan

Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie - fun and amazing

Street Fighter Alpha: The Animation - Akuma should've had more screen time

------------

However Cowboy Beebop is also in my top 5 all time best anime's. Action/adventure/badass = Spike Spiegel...

The martial arts genre for me!

Martial Arts because of one show. Naruto. Naruto owns, so I chose Martial Arts.

I know it's definitely a little late to be posting here, but I want to state my opinion. If I were to have voted on an anime genre, I'd definitely pick comedy. My favorite book is Yotsuba&!. The crazy things that spunky girl gets into makes me chuckle :)

What? No hentai option? :lol:

Oh, and Magus068, Elfen Lied is a pretty sick anime. It had everything I wanted in an anime when I was a kid in the first 15 min of the first episode! :D
