    Loyalties?

    I've always thought that loyalties should not come in the way of our anime watching, but at most times does.

    I'm personally loyal to Kyoto Animation, especially since they have a firm hold on Key's works, have made Haruhi, FMP, Lucky Star and a whole host of other crap (in the best, most optimistic manner speaking) I've ever seen.

    We could also look at loyalties for a certain genre, though of which I don't take any sides and watch nearly every genre, thoughy I tend to go more for shoujo only because it is most widely offered. Though any good anime from any genre is hard to come by sadly enough and I end up not finishing the anime/manga out of frustration.

    So I ask, what, if any, are your loyaloties and why were they formed?

    I watch all Studio Ghibli films... because I signed the contract that everyone who lives in Japan has to and we will all be shot if we don't. Satoshi Kon is a genius... he hasn't disappointed me yet. I like BONES' style and the way they choose their projects, even if they do outsource them all to Korea... My ears still perk when I hear "BONES" attatched to a new series' credits.

    Manga -- I read -everything- by Hiroki Kusumoto, Furuya Usamaru, and Hagio Moto, without exception. If something new comes out: I buy it. If something I already own is re-released with a pretty new cover and an essay in the back: I buy it again. They're that good. BERSERK and GANTZ both own me... I buy new books the first day they're released. Also following "Inukami!", "Hourou Musuko" and am working my way through "Eroica yori Ai wo Komete"... There are other tons of other series that I like or am reading currently... but it's nothing to rush the store for on release day.

    I follow ATLUS and Team ICO for games... though ATLUS in the US releases a lot of crap they didn't actually develop and the ocaisional pachinko game squeaks through ~ I love me some Megamitensei... and whenever ATLUS is up to something big, it's usually a Megaten spinoff. Team ICO can do no wrong.

    I follow Nitro+, Leaf, and (guardedly)Langmaor for BL/erogames... because all three are consistantly high in quality and make games that I DON'T find to be a total waste of time and money. Leaf, unfortunately, is terminally unsexy and Langmaor makes some REALLY screwed up shotacon rape stuff O_o; But I still keep up with all three and get excited when new games come out, buy goods/figures, don't sell back their games, etc.

    For my anime I look to GAiNAX, GONZO, and KyoAni for something good to watch. Honestly, they have never disappointed me. Sure, I like Studio Ghibli, etc. but I've never been able to stick to any of their works for long. Not that I'm saying they're bad though, I just prefer the others.

    Manga...well I read what I like. But I do like to follow the works of PEACH-PIT, Watsuki Nobuhiro, Azuma Kiyohiko, and I'm just a fan of Yoshimizu Kagami since Lucky Star...which is ironic as I have only read a few 4-koma strips of Lucky Star. But hey, if my local postal office havent lost my packages than I'd have all current volumes!!(T_T)

    As for games, definitely SquareEnix and NipponIchi Software. I love their games, period. ATLUS doesnt disappoint either. ATLUS USA tends to grab a few good titles now and then such as the Summon Night series and the Super Robot Taisen series.

    The first Anime feature that Studio BONES produced was the 'Cowboy Bebop' movie. Their first Anime TV series was 'Angelic Layer', which was the first CLAMP based Anime series not done by Madhouse Studios. But their first real breakout series was the psychological drama 'RahXephon', followed by the award winning 'Full Metal Alchemist'. Other more recent productions include 'Kurau: Phantom Memory', 'Mars Daybreak' and 'Eureka 7'... (grumble grumble grumble)

    I really like CLAMP anime. My favorite genre is Sci-Fi punk. Shows like Ghost in the Shell and Akira really get my blood pumping. I also like Sci-Fi shoujo like Kiddy Grade and Silent Mobius.

    I don't really have a particular studio that I am 'loyal' with... I guess I could say I am a lover of Gainax. ^_^
