Don't get me started. ;)
Trigun is my favourite anime as well, Bebop and Ghost in the Shell are close in second and third. I don't watch most of the Adult Swim anime anymore, I don't really like anything they show. Studio Ghibli films are wonderful too, especially Spirited Away (I doubt I will ever get tired of that movie) and Kiki's Delivery Service.
Cosplay (the making and wearing of anime costumes) is one of my hobbies, even though I tend to plan more than actually make them...
Most of my friends are Otaku like me. (A word used to refer to an obsessed fan (usu. of anime)- taken as complimentary by some, as insulting by others. Kind of like calling someone a nerd- some people don't mind it.)
