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.
